Originating from a South Indian oral tradition, Kala Sarpa isn’t discussed in jyotish shastra. As a consequence, it’s poorly understood by astrologers, and generally feared by clients. In this lecture, Alan will unravel this complex configuration, particularly regarding its astronomical realities and consequences. As regards its interpretation, as yoga versus dosha, he will show how to apply traditional principles of graha and yoga vichara to shed light on one of jyotisha’s most enduring enigmas. Based on research involving over 700 Kala Sarpa horoscopes.
