Kalsarp Yog: 28 Apr- 2nd Oct, 2013

As usual, with me things are quite paradoxical/ ironic. I am one creature who's into astrological consultation, astrological transits etc, almost  24/7 with three blogs, facebook groups, sceret groups, phone calls, forums, around the clock.  But it took a message from our landlord Sunil on 11th august to wake me up to the most extreme and significant cosmic phenomenon.

Sunil wrote: "Adim. I am under the impression that all major planets ie Jupiter, Saturn, and the nodes Rahu Ketu are in a straight line- how long will this last?". Sunil is a senior member of Soka Gakkai, (Nichiren Daishnin's Buddhism), and cpunsels his Chanting members all through their walsk of life. For the past eight years, more than being a landlord, he has guided us through many, many issues of our existence. And it's often, that we sit together, discussing about spiritual, political, national topics, and the effects of prevailing transits and analysis of different horoscopes. I find Sunil's analysis, always loaded with insight, wisdom, intution. Often picking out vital but obvious points that I ofetn overlook. His perspective is one of more balance and wider karmic perspective. So, when he hinted about this prevailing transit, I took considerable interest in it. And dived into the alamanac.

Well, it only took me all of ten minutes to discover the obvious: the prevailing Kalsarpa Yog from 28th april- 2nd october, 2013! I am bored of repeating my classic dialogue, but yes, it's always at the fag end of things, that I find out about prevailing transits. And Kalsarpa Yog is no minor astrological phase.

Kalsarpa Yog occurs in the heavens, when all planets are hemmed  on one side of the straight line that forms the Rahu Ketu axis. This creates a watershed in the heavens. All planets can be said to be trapped in the semicircle formed by the Rahu Ketu axis. On one side of the Serpentine axis, all planets crowded together, and on the other side, emptiness, void. This creates a severe imbalance in the astrological energies. Like water on one side of the dam, and a deep valley on the other side. The natural flow of things have come to an
standstill/ imbalance/ watershed. Its a period of extreme energies.

In mythology, Kalsarpa Yog has an important role in the Vedic tale of the Churning of The Cosmic Ocean. Kalsarpa axis is represented by the cosmic serpent Vasuki who was wrapped around mount Meru, pulled by Devatas/ Light Creatures on on  side and Asuras/ beings of Darkness, on the other side. Both sides using the mount meru as the churning rod to churn the cosmic ocean. The churning of the cosmic Ocean rpresented a period of extreme, imbalance, havoc, turbulence before order was restored to the Universe. For more info, google: Vedic mythology - churning of the Cosmic ocean.

Basically kalsarpa represents a cosmic churning period. Where, two opposing sides within our own selves come into conflict with each other. We pull and push, the giant serpent Vasuki, churning our emotional, psychological, spiritual, material universe within ourselves. We keep pulling back and letting go, back and forth between opposites. Often denoting the Karmic conflict within. Thereby, the period of Kalsarpa Yog can be said to be an universal Churning period. Of all starsigns, zodiac, planetary influences. Of all creatures on heaven and earth, whether they are demonic or angelic. THIS IS ONE ASTROLOGICAL PHENOMENON THAT AFFECTS EVERYBODY!! UNIVERSALLY!! Irresolution, vacillation, conflict, dialectical movement is the order of the day. Fluctuation, oscillation, inner pressures, flux, turbulence, flotsam/ jetsam. Often the energies brought by Kalsarp Yog are extremely powerful BUT not long lasting. The effects of Kalsarp yog is reduced, once the stranglehold/ watershed of the heavens ends, and one by one the planets exit the semicircle of Rahu Ketu. Slowly, balance is restored to the ordered universe, once Kalsarp yog ends.

This Kalsarp Yog coinciding with chinese year of the serpent only increases the serpentine energy in the climate. Because on either sides of the himalayas, even though the individual terminology, calculations, differ according to separate interpretations of the Chinese and Indian civilizations, the overall universal value system remains the same! some of the more occult Chinese astrology websites have a description of Serpentine energies, that provide a vast and deep insight into the workings of the Serpentine nodes. The deeper dynamics of our Vedic Kalsarp Yog!

Despite being an astrological consultant myself, i have no regrets that I didn't foresee this cosmic, significant astrological phenomenon, until it's very peak was on, OVER me. And that too after our landlord  pinpointed my foucs towards it. I feel that as practitioners of this craft, it is more important to experience such enormously significant events  first hand and then after sufficient contemplation, rant about it full on! The prerogative should be to understand it completely from a personal, subjective, visceral level. Rather than, bombarding it with a vast arsenal of theories and textbook interpretations. It was very important for me to experience this highly significant astrological transit ON a very personal, karmic, level before commencing my analysis on it. the churning is happening within my body itself, as I am Libran ascendant, and since this Kalsarp is happening in Aries-Libra, this is the most BASIC/ FUNDAMENTAL/ UNIVERSAL Kalsarpa. Maybe the cosmic churning of the ocean happened during this Aries- Libra configuration.

Another highly noteworthy thing's that, during this very Kalsarp Yog, I finally fused my Rahu Ketu blog under one singular word/ heading: Serpentine. With this word everything seemed to fall in place. there wasn't any distinction between rahu Ketu anymore, just one singular serpentine axis. I can't even begin to describe the long journey since forever to reach this one singular word. The number of changes I've had, the innumerable  descriptions, to this blog. Which, now in retrospect feel unimaginably dramatic,  heinously comic. Why did the word Serpentine wait so long to be found out? This one singular word? Was all my years of research on the serpentine nodes predestined to converge into one singular word/ concept during this prevailing, significant Kalsarp yog + Chinese year of Serpent? Sounds very Serpentine to me. Very Serpentine..


  1. Very intriguing topic and views. I do relate to some of the issues mentioned under this Yoga.

    You've said : "THIS IS ONE ASTROLOGICAL PHENOMENON THAT AFFECTS EVERYBODY!! UNIVERSALLY!! Irresolution, vacillation, conflict, dialectical movement is the order of the day. Fluctuation, oscillation, inner pressures, flux, turbulence, flotsam/ jetsam. Often the energies brought by Kalsarp Yog are extremely powerful BUT not long lasting."

    So will this phase wipe itself out from someone's life on its own?
