A glimpse of what is Kaal Sarp Dosha

Kaal Sarp Dosha is a situation that is formed when planets of the cosmic universe accidentally come in between the shadow planets, Rahu and Ketu. As Rahu enters in the first house and Ketu reaches the last house of the birth chart, the positive effects of planets do not reach the native! This gives way to anxieties, fear, worries, career problems, financial issues and delay in finding the perfect match for marriage.
