When 7 planets, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn come under or in the axis of Rahu and Ketu, then that situation is called Kal Sarp Dosh. This is another scary dosh as told by various astrologers. Let see the possibilities of this dosh.

The main planets for locating this dosh are Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are not planets, but they are shadowy planets. Actually, they are the cutting points of the moon’s orbit. In astrology, Moon represents mind, emotions, peace, and security. So, Rahu and Ketu are generally connected with the thinking pattern of a human being. Rahu is aggression and Ketu is detachment. Both travel mostly in a retrograde mode, but only a few days they are direct.
