According to the prevalent definition of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog, when in a horoscope, Rahu is placed in the eighth house, Ketu is placed in the second house and all the other planets are placed between the axis of Rahu and Ketu, Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog is said to be formed in that horoscope. To simplify, if Rahu is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope, Ketu is placed in the second house of this horoscope and all other planets are placed from eighth to second house or from second to eighth house in this horoscope, Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog is said to be formed in the horoscope. This defect is also known as Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh. We have already discussed all the conditions required for the formation of Kaal Sarp Yog in a horoscope in the article named ‘Kaal Sarp Yog’ and hence we will skip those conditions here. Let’s now see what type of problems Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog can cause when it actually forms in a horoscope.

Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh can trouble the natives under its impact with health problems and diseases due to which these natives may have to suffer from a variety of health problems and diseases, depending on their overall horoscopes. The health issues generated by this type of Kaal Sarp Yog usually start during the childhood of these natives and in some cases; the natives suffering from this defect are born with some diseases or health related issues and they may start suffering from such health problems, right from their birth. These problems may aggravate if such Kaal Sarp Dosh gains additional strength in the horoscopes of these natives or if it receives support from other malefic planets in the horoscopes of these natives. In an extreme case of its type, when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog present in a horoscope can trouble the native with serious health problems from his birth and the native may even be born handicapped, either physically or mentally. Such combination of strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh and other malefic planets may also claim the life of the native under its impact during his childhood, on account of a serious disease which may not be cured.

The malefic influence of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog can spoil the overall childhood experience of the natives under its impact due to which these natives may not enjoy their childhood properly, and they may have to face many types of issues during their childhood. Some natives suffering from Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh may not get proper attention and affection from their parents and they may feel ignored due to this reason. Some other natives under the attack of such Kaal Sarp Yog may become the target of their parents’ anger most of the time, by virtue of something wrong done by them, either willingly or unwillingly.

The natives under the malefic impact of such Kaal Sarp Dosh are likely to possess a specific type of bad luck which may spoil their relations with their parents due to which these natives may have troubled equations with their parents during their childhood; and such equations may not become normal even during the rest of their lives. In cases where such Kaal Sarp Yog is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the natives under its impact may have so many bad memories of their childhood, related to their parents, that they may not be able to establish a proper bond of love and affection with their parents, throughout their lives. Such natives may choose to live away from their parents, as soon as they start earning; and they may have little or very little interaction with their parents.

Some other natives suffering from Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh may experience bad results related to their education, especially during their childhood; and some of them may just hate the whole idea of going to schools and studying for so many hours. The malefic impact of such Kaal Sarp Yog can make some natives completely disinterested in formal education and schools, due to which these natives may either stop going to schools or they may pretend to go to schools from their homes, but they may bunk the schools and go elsewhere to pass their time. In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh present in a horoscope can devoid the native of education; and such native may choose not to study during his childhood itself.

The negative influence of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog can also make the natives engage in bad company due to which the natives under its impact are prone to get into the company of bad people. Once again, the natives under the malefic impact of such Kaal Sarp Dosh are likely to engage in such bad company from their childhood and they may have a good number of such friends who engage in many types of vices as well as in bad practices, by the time these natives enter their young age. It means that these natives may attract bad friends; right from their childhood and such friends may stick to these natives throughout their lives or till late in their lives.

The natives suffering from such Kaal Sarp Yog may engage in many types of immoral practices and vices due to their bad company during their childhood and teen years, as their friends may provoke them to engage in such practices. In an extreme case of its type, the native troubled by strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh supported by other malefic planets may become addicted to intoxicating substances from his childhood and he may have to suffer a lot due to such addictions. Some of these natives may have to pay heavy price for such addictions and they may die young by virtue of serious health conditions caused due to heavy consumption of harmful substances on regular basis, due to the combined malefic impact of such Kaal Sarp Yog and other malefic planets.

Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh can also disturb the eating habits of the natives under its impact, right from their childhood. Hence these natives may get into the habit of not eating properly, eating more of junk and unhealthy food; or not eating on time as well as with discipline. These unhealthy eating habits may trouble these natives with many types of health related issues, especially in the later years of their lives. Hence these natives troubled by such Kaal Sarp Yog may start experiencing health problems after their age of 35; and such problems may become more and more intense after their age of 41. In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh present in a horoscope can afflict the native with serious health conditions which may trouble him for the rest of his life and which may also reduce his lifespan; where such problems may be caused, primarily due to the bad eating habits of the native. The natives under the impact of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog are prone to have some type of irregularities in their eating routines, which may trouble them in their later years. Hence these natives should be careful about their eating habits and their dietary patterns, so that they may avoid health problems in their later years.

The bad influence of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh can affect the speech abilities of the natives under its impact due to which some natives suffering from this defect may not have good command on their speech; and they may often come out as outspoken or ill mannered. Such natives may not care for the feelings of the others in most cases and they may just speak out whatever comes to their mind, whether good or bad, due to the malefic influence of such Kaal Sarp Yog. These natives may get into serious arguments and troubles many times in their lives due to their aggressive and offensive speaking manners, as the impact of such Kaal Sarp Dosh may not let them think about the feelings of the others; and they may easily offend other people during conversations.

In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog present in a horoscope can trouble the native with such bad speaking manners that he may not have good relations even with the closest of his relatives. This native may keep offending everyone who interacts with him due to which, most people may choose to stay at a safe distance from him. The natives suffering from Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh may belong to ‘speak now think later’ category and hence they should practice control on their speech, in order to avoid getting into trouble again and again.

Marriage is one more sphere which may be hit by Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog due to which the natives under its impact may face many types of problems before and after their marriages. Most natives having this type of Kaal Sarp Dosh in their horoscopes may suffer from some kind of problem related to their marriages, depending on their overall horoscopes. Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog is undoubtedly one of the most problematic types of Kaal Sarp Doshas, when it comes to delay the marriages of the natives under its impact. The marriages of the natives suffering from this type of Kaal Sarp Yog are usually delayed, where this delay may be a delay of few years or a delay of a few decades, depending on the strength of this defect as well as depending on the overall tone of the horoscopes of these natives. In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh present in a horoscope can make the native wait till 41 years of his age in order to get married or such native may not get married at all. A high percentage of natives suffering from this type of Kaal Sarp Yog are seen getting married late or very late in their lives, due to various reasons indicated by their overall horoscopes.

Considering an example, if malefic Rahu is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra, malefic Ketu is placed in the second house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries, malefic Mars is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo and malefic Venus is placed in the fifth house of this horoscope in the sign of Cancer along with malefic Saturn; the native may witness delay in his marriage. The native under the combined effect of such Kaal Sarp Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 36, as his marriage may keep getting delayed on account of one reason or the other. The native troubled by such Kaal Sarp Yog and other malefic planets may engage in a love relationship which may continue for many years but which may not convert into a marriage and this may delay the marriage of the native; as he may first wait for this relationship to convert into a marriage and he may not be willing to marry, once this relationship is gone.

At the same time, if malefic Sun is placed in the fifth house of this horoscope in the sign of Cancer along with malefic Venus and Saturn, Mercury also joins this combination of these three malefic planets in the fifth house of this horoscope and Moon is placed in the second house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic Ketu when all other malefic planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the equation may become much more problematic. The native suffering from the combined effect of such Kaal Sarp Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 41 or he may not get married throughout his life.

Such native under the combined effect of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog and other malefic planets may engage in a love relationship during his young age, such relationship may continue for more than seven years and it may then break. The native may get so hurt by this setback that he may not consider marrying anyone for many years after such broken love relationship, or he may simply refuse to marry throughout his life, as he may choose to wait for his lost lover to come back to him. However his lover may never come back to him due to the combined malefic impact of such Kaal Sarp Dosh and other malefic planets, and the native may remain unmarried, either till 41 years of his age or for his entire life.

I have observed that many natives suffering from Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog marry late in their lives on account of various reasons. Some of these natives may not want to marry due to various issues like the one mentioned in the previous example whereas some of them may have some serious issues with their family members and they may want to sort out these issues before getting married. By the time these natives suffering from such Kaal Sarp Dosh get these issues sorted out, it may become late or very late for marriage. I have heard from many of my clients having Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog in their horoscopes that they did not marry till the day which is anywhere between 35 years to 45 years; as they wanted to get their siblings married and established first; or they were busy sorting out some other problems in their families. To summarize, Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh has a significant tendency to delay the marriages of the natives under its impact and when supported by other malefic planets, it can also devoid the native of marriage.

Apart from delaying the marriages of the natives under its impact, Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog is also very good at causing problems in the marriages of the natives troubled by it. Hence the natives under the impact of such Kaal Sarp Dosh may face many types of problems related to their marriages, depending on their overall horoscopes.  Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog can create lack of compatibility as well as differences of opinion between the natives under its impact and their wives; and such problems may intensify with the addition of other negative planets to the horoscopes of these natives. In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets; strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh present in a horoscope can break more than one marriage of the native on account of various issues, depending on his overall horoscope. Such native troubled by Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog and other malefic planets may witness one or two broken marriages on account of serious problems in such marriages, and he may choose to remain single after that, as he may not wish to experiment with marriage any more.

The malefic influence of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh can also make some natives engage in extramarital affairs which may have adverse impact on their marriages. In cases when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog can break the marriage of the native under its impact on account of his extramarital affair coming to the knowledge of his wife, who may refuse to live with the native after such knowledge, and she may get divorced. It should be noted that the natives engaging in extramarital affairs under the malefic impact of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh have a significant tendency to lose their wives as well as their lovers. It means that these natives attacked by such Kaal Sarp Yog and other malefic planets may engage in extramarital affairs, they may lose their wives due to such affairs; and even their lovers may refuse to marry them. The malefic influence of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh makes it difficult or very difficult for the extramarital affairs of the natives under its impact, to convert into marriages and hence such extramarital affairs may prove very bad for these natives; making them lose their wives as well as their lovers.

Some natives suffering from Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog may have high to very high sexual appetites and this can make them go to every pillar and post in order to satisfy their sexual appetites. These natives under the attack of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh may regularly seek the services of professional sex workers in order to satisfy their sexual appetites, which can make them waste their money in most cases; and even their health in some cases. Such problems may intensify as such Kaal Sarp Yog receives support from other malefic planets in a horoscope, and as it gains more strength due to which, the native under its impact may have to suffer from problems of bigger quantum. In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh present in a horoscope can make the native suffer from a sexually transmitted disease by virtue of his excessive engagement in sexual relations with a large number of females, and he may die at a young age by virtue of such disease.

It should be noted that out of all types of Kaal Sarp Yogas, Takshak and Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh have the highest ratio of afflicting the natives under their effect with venereal diseases, some of which may prove fatal for the natives depending on the strength of these defects; and depending on the overall tone of the horoscopes under consideration. Therefore the natives suffering from Takshak or Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog should keep their sexual urges in check and if that is not possible for them to do, they should always take proper precautions while engaging in sexual acts, so that they may remain safe from any type of sexually transmitted diseases.

The malefic impact of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh can also affect the professions of the natives under its influence in a negative way, due to which these natives may have to face many types of problems related to their professions. Some natives suffering from this type of Kaal Sarp Yog may not engage in permanent professions till late in their lives whereas some other such natives may not engage in any profession at all. These problems may intensify with the addition of other negative planets to the horoscopes of the natives suffering from such Kaal Sarp Dosh and as a result, they may have to remain jobless for periods of more than two years, many times in their lives. In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog present in a horoscope can keep the native jobless till his age of 41 or throughout his life. Such native may not get any job till his age of 41 or he may get temporary jobs for durations not more than one year, and he may have to remain jobless once again; due to the combined malefic effect of such Kaal Sarp Dosh and other malefic planets.

Some other natives suffering from Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog may have to keep changing their jobs and though these natives may not remain jobless for long periods of time, they may not settle in one profession till late in their lives. If such Kaal Sarp Dosh is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may keep changing jobs as well as fields of profession till very late in his life. In an extreme case of its type when supported by other malefic planets, strong Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog present in a horoscope can devoid the native of permanent profession throughout his life and he may have to keep changing his jobs or professions till the end of his professional career.

The malefic influence of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh can also affect the overall lifespan of the natives under its impact in a negative manner due to which these natives may not live up to average age for humans; and they may die before or much before such age. It should be noted that the natives suffering from Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog have a significant tendency to die early, as well as die through unnatural or sudden causes. For example, some natives under the impact of such Kaal Sarp Dosh may die at a relatively young age by means of a road or an air accident whereas some other natives of this type may get afflicted with a fatal disease which may kill them at a young age. Similarly some other natives under the impact of such Kaal Sarp Yog may die at a relatively young age by virtue of a planned or unplanned violence whereas some other natives of this type may attempt suicide and they may die. In extreme cases when such Kaal Sarp Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the natives under its impact may either commit suicide or they may die by virtue of a capital punishment or in an encounter with police or criminals.

Some other natives troubled by such Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog may die by virtue of planned murders; and such murders may be planned against them in order to seize property or wealth owned by these natives or legally deserved by these natives. For example, if Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh is formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Ketu in the second house and that of malefic Rahu in the eighth house with malefic Mars, native’s own brother may kill him through a planned murder, primarily in order to seize his part of inheritance left by their parents.

Similarly if such Kaal Sarp Yog is formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Ketu in the second house and that of malefic Rahu in the eighth house along with malefic Venus, the native may die due to a murder conspiracy planned by his wife. The wife of this native suffering from such Kaal Sarp Dosh may get him murdered in order to seize his wealth or in order to get the claim for life insurance policy of this native. Likewise, if Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog if formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Ketu in the second house and that of malefic Rahu in the eighth house along with malefic Jupiter, the native may get killed in religious violence. The native troubled by such Kaal Sarp Dosh may get killed in a planned or unplanned religious violence at a relatively young age.

Taking one more example, if Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog is formed in a horoscope by virtue of presence of malefic Ketu in the second house and that of malefic Rahu in the eighth house along with malefic Saturn, the native may die because of a punishment imposed on him by a court of law. The native under the malefic impact of such Kaal Sarp Dosh may get convicted for a serious crime and he may die either because of a capital punishment, or he may receive a life sentence and he may die during his prison sentence. Apart from this, Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog can trouble the natives under its malefic impact with many other types of problems related to many other spheres of their lives, depending on their overall horoscopes.

Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Karkotak Kaal Sarp Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Karkotak Kaal Sarp Yog in his horoscope.
