This article will help you learn about what is Rahu Ketu dosha, its origins, types, effects, and remedies.

Historical Origins of Rahu Ketu Dosha:

In Hinduism ‘Kaal’ is another word for death, whereas ‘Sarp’ stands for snake/serpent when they come together, it creates havoc in the astrological chart of the person; causing troubles and problems. Svarbhānu was a rakshasa who was beheaded by Mohini (Lord Vishnu in female avatar) after Samudra Manthan. But, as he drank a sip of holy ‘amrit’, his head and torso were left floating around. His severed head and body named Rahu and Ketu, while floating around the universe got attached to a snake. Hence, Rahu – Ketu are considered serpent in Indian astrology.

Astrological explanation of Rahu & Ketu Dosha:

Astrologically, the Rahu Ketu Kala Sarpa Dosha occurs when all the other seven planets in you kundli and placed between the planets of Rahu and Ketu.
