At the same time it also gives Rajyoga. Such people raech the pinnacle in whatever field they chose, be it art, film, business, politics, enterpreneurship, sports or spirituality. Most of the big-wigs in these fields have one common thing in their horoscope- they have Kalsarpa Yoga, which may be anything between Anant Kalsarpa yoga to Shesh Kalsarpa Yoga, depending upon the zodiac sign.
It must be remembered that Independent India took birth on 15th August, 1947 during Kalsarpa Yoga. It was there in the horoscope of first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru as well as the priest, who found out auspicious moment (muhurta) for oath-taking, Jyotishacharya Surya Narayan Vyas had it in his horoscope as well.
Therefore, Kalsarpa Yoga is nothing to be feared about. It's more relevant acording to Indian Jyotish traditions, which believes that individuals with same stellar constellations complement each other well and are proven worthy citizens.
Rahu is a cruel planet, very similar to that of Saturn. In act, Rahu and Ketu are not real planets, they are shadow planets only. We know that earth revolves around the Sun and Moon revolves around the earth. On its revolving path, earth crosses these two on opposite ends and these two ends (shadows) have been given names of Rahu and Ketu.
As these planetary constellations effect human lives, it has been given a place in the horoscope and its impact on individual's thought process and life cycle is astrologically studied.
Rahu is high in Gemini and low in Sagittarius. Virgo is its friendly sign. On the other hand, Ketu is high in Sagittarius and low in Gemini. In behaviour, Ketu is very similar to Mars, but comparatively mild. Saturn, Mercury and Venus are its friendly stars while Sun, Moon and Mars are enemies. Jupiter is the Samgraha.On the other hand, Ketu is friendly with Mars while Sun, Saturn and Rahu are enemy planets. Moon, Mercury and Jupiter are its sam grahas. In the horoscope of individuals having Kalsarpa Yoga, all the planets are placed in just one side, between Rahu and Ketu. It is believed that Rahu is snake's head while Ketu is its tail in Kalsarpa Yoga. as all other stars are in front of Rahu's mouth, Kalsarpa Yoga is believed to give negative results. It is believed that Kalsarpa Yoga is a result of killing Cobra in the previous life. Therefore, such individuals are always prone to snake bites and often dreams of snakes pretty often. It's pretty comming inside 15 days when Kalsrapa Yog enters gochar.
It's not essential to go to Trayambakeshwar to quell Kalsarpa Yoga or Pitridosh. It can be done anywhere besides a clean river or in a temple of Shiva. People often go to Trayambakeshwar for this purpose but it has not been provided for anywhere in the Shiva-puran.
People don't know about it and they copy each other only. To be true, priests in Trayambakeshwar don't take the aggrieved parties to the temple, they do it in the homes in stead, which is not very fruitful always.
Trayambakeshwar is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas and a lot can be achieved by making a visit to the place, not just quelling Kalsarpa Yoga. Almighty has created planetary means to punish erring humans, but it has also provided for the means to quell it with the help of bhakti and mantras. If steps are taken to get rid of Kalsarpa Yoga, make no mistake, that is not possible but relief up to the extent of 85 percent is possible.
There are various means to pacify Kalsarpa Yoga. If proper measures are taken acording to spiritual procedure under the guidance of an experienced astrologer or priest, it's possible to avoid its bad effects. Following are some common means...
