According to the prevalent definition of Anant Kaal Sarp yog, when in a horoscope, Rahu is placed in the first house and Ketu is placed in the seventh house and all the other planets are placed between first and seventh house which means that they are covered between Rahu and Ketu moving from Rahu to Ketu and from first house to seventh house, Anant Kaal Sarp yog is said to be formed in that horoscope. Anant kaal sarp yog when formed in a horoscope is said to do damages in various spheres of the life of the native who has this dosh in his horoscope. In this article, I will discuss some of the misconceptions associated with the formation of this dosh and I will also discuss the conditions which are required to be met in a horoscope for the formation of this defect. But before doing that, let’s have a look at the problems which this dosh called Anant kaal sarp yog is said to cause in a person’s life if it is formed in his horoscope.
To start with the problems that this dosh can afflict to the native, Anant kaal sarp yog is said to delay and disturb the married life of the person who has this dosh in his horoscope. Such a person is said to undergo very painful experiences in his marriage and married life, which may include getting married late or sometimes not getting married at all, facing major problems in marriage which can include serious arguments and disputes with the partner, separation, divorce or multiple divorces and in extreme cases the spouse of such a native can die due to some disease or accident. The native having Anant kaal sarp yog in his horoscope is also said to face big problems in his professional field throughout his life and his profession is not established until very late in his life. It is also said that the native can suffer many different kinds of diseases and ailments and such a native can even go insane due to the presence of this defect. The native is said to face losses throughout his life and many other kinds of problems can also fall upon the native having Anant kaal sarp yog in his horoscope.
Such extreme conditions are faced only by a few people and not by many people which means that Anant kaal sarp yog should be formed only in a few horoscopes and it should not form in big numbers as only a small fraction of people are facing such extreme problems in their lives and marriage. And now let’s have a look at the probable number of people having this dosh in their horoscopes according to its prevalent definition of this defect.
The placement of Rahu in the first house and the placement of Ketu in the seventh house of a horoscope is the first condition that needs to be met in a horoscope for the formation of Anant kaal sarp yog according to its prevalent definition. Now moving on to the formation of this defect, if all the planets are placed in the houses ranging from the first house to the seventh house in a horoscope, Anant kaap sarp yog is said to be formed in that horoscope. But this part does not hold good in actual practice and not all the people having this kind of combination have Anant kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes. Let’s try and simplify this example with the help of some scientific facts and analysis.
For example, let’s consider formation of this dosh in the horoscopes of the people born all across the world between 20th of July 1976 and 3rd of August 1976 which is a period of about 15 days approximately. If we make and analyze different horoscopes with different dates of birth, times of birth and places of birth where the dates of birth are between the above mentioned time ranges, we can easily see that Rahu was placed in Libra during all this period and Ketu was placed in Aries during all this period and all the other planets were placed between Libra and Aries during this period, which means that all the people born all across the world during this period of time are having one or the other kind of kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes. For example, all the people born during the above mentioned period of time who have Libra as their ascendant rising have Anant Kaal Sarp yog as Rahu is placed in the first house of their horoscopes as it was transiting Libra during that period and Ketu is placed in the seventh house of their horoscopes as it was transiting Aries during that period.
The above example clearly shows that according to the prevalent definition of kaal sarp yog, all the people born across the world during the above mentioned 15 days have kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes and on an average every 12th person born during these 15 days has Anant Kaal Sarp yog in his horoscope as there are only twelve houses in a horoscope so the probability of Rahu being placed in the first house of a horoscope will be 1 in every 12 horoscopes. Such combinations of 4 months or even six months keep on appearing at different points in time making more and more people to have Anant kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes.
As millions of people were born all across the globe during the above mentioned time period, so it can be easily concluded that according to the prevalent definition of Anant kaal sarp yog, all of those millions of people should be having Anant kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes and accordingly each one of them should be suffering the serious consequences of this defect. This statement does not hold good in actual practice as millions of people with different horoscopes and different destinies were born during those 15 days as some of them have become very rich and some of them very poor, some of them have very good married lives while some have problems in their marriage and even these problems are different in nature and quantum for most of the people suffering from these problems.
For example some people are experiencing only occasional arguments and differences of opinions with their partners, some of them are facing bigger issues like no understanding or little understanding with their partners, some of them have not got married at all, some of them have got divorced once or twice and some of them have lost their partners to death. At the same time there are many people born within the same period of time who do not have any significant issues in their married life and who do not have any significant bad luck in other spheres of their lives and they are leading smooth lives and are enjoying it which clearly shows that there is no impact of any kind of kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes, whether it is Anant kaal sarp yog or any other kind of kaal sarp yog. So it can be easily concluded that Anant kaal sarp yog is not formed based on its prevalent definition alone and there are some modifications which should be applied to its prevalent definition as it does not hold good in its present form.
According to my observation and experience, in my practice of astrology I have found that for Anant kaal sarp yog to be formed in a horoscope, the conditions like the placement of Rahu and Ketu in the first and the seventh house and the placement of all the other planets between them are not sufficient and more conditions should be met in a horoscope for the formation of this defect. Both Rahu and Ketu should be working negative in a horoscope to form Anant Kaal Sarp yog or any other kind of kaal sarp yog which is a must condition for the formation of kaal sarp yog because if any one of them or both of them are working positively in a specific horoscope, Kaal Sarp yog of any kind cannot be formed in that horoscope as no planet working positively in a horoscope can make a dosh in that horoscope. So the working of Rahu and Ketu should be checked properly before predicting the formation of this dosh in any horoscope. Moving forward, even if both Rahu and Ketu are working negatively in a horoscope, it is not necessary that they will make Anant kaal sarp yog or any other kind of kaal sarp yog in that horoscope as they may be working negative in that horoscope but may not actually be forming any dosh and instead may be working as silent negatives in that horoscope which means that they will only cause some problems to the native by virtue of their negativity and the native will be spared from serious problems associated with Anant Kaal Sarp yog.
And finally even if both Rahu and Ketu placed in the first and seventh house of a horoscope are working negatively and are actually making Anant kaal sarp yog in that horoscope, the results will not be same for all the natives having such dosh as the next factors that need to be checked are the strength of the dosh formed and the timing of impact of this defect. And as the strength and timing of impact of this dosh keeps on changing constantly and can show significant changes even within a difference of 15-30 minutes in birth time, accordingly the problems faced by the natives having Anant kaal sarp yog will be different in quantum and timing which means that some of the natives having very weak Anant Kaal Sarp yog will not experience many problems but occasional delays in professional matters and occasional problems in marriage whereas the natives having a very strong Anant kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes can actually feel the heat of most of the problems associated with this dosh and can keep on suffering throughout their lives or for a very big part of their lives. It should also be noted here that in some horoscopes, some of the planets may not be placed inside Rahu-Ketu axis, but this dosh may still be present in these horoscopes if all the other conditions for the formation of this dosh are met in these horoscopes.
From the above discussion, it can be easily seen that the formation of Anant Kaal Sarp yog and the problems caused by it keep on changing from person to person even with a difference of 15 minutes in their times of birth. So the natives fearing of having Anant kaal sarp yog in their horoscopes according to its prevalent definition should not panic and should seek the advice of an expert astrologer and they might be relaxed afterwards because in my experience, most of the horoscopes showing Anant kaal sarp yog according to its prevalent definition will either not have it at all, or the strength of this dosh may not be enough to cause any significant damages. The bad effects of Anant Kaal Sarp yog can be reduced with the help of guided astrological remedies.
