Kala Sarpa Yoga

We are currently in a Kala Sarpa Yoga, which means “time of the serpent”. This comes from an India creation myth in which a cosmic serpent is used to churn the ocean of milk (the milky way galaxy) to obtain the elixir of immortality. The serpent then steals some of this elixir through trickery and Vishnu uses his discus, representing the Zodiac, to cut the serpent in two. However, because he already drank the elixir, the two have of the serpent are immortal and are said to remain in the sky as the nodes of the Moon, Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are 180 degrees apart and if a line is drawn between them, it bisects the Zodiac into two semicircles. A Kala Sarpa Yoga occurs when all the planets are on the same semicircle or same side of the Zodiac between Rahu and Ketu.

In the current Kala Sarpa Yoga, all of the planets are moving towards Rahu, the head of the snake, and this is considered to be worse than when the planets are moving towards Ketu. When planets are moving towards Ketu it is said that karmas are ending and when planets are moving towards Rahu it is said that new karmas are being created. Either such Yoga creates intense and unbalanced times. These times will bring the shocking and unexpected more than usual, but be careful how you respond as your actions will long lasting consequences.

This is especially true for people who have their Moon in Sagittarius, Capricorn, or Aquarius as you are in Sati Sade. Sati Sade is related to the position of Saturn and the Moon relative to each other. Saturn, Ketu, and Rahu are considered to be the main planets signifying things that last a long time and the results of karma. Such people are feeling the results of their past karma more strongly than others at this time.
