Kaal Sarp Yog and Kaal Sarp Dosh are one and the same thing. When in a Horoscope, all the seven planets namely Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Mercury and Saturn are placed between Rahu-Ketu Axis i.e North and South nodes of Moon, then Kaal Sarp Dosh or Kaal Sarp Yog is said to be formed in that horoscope. Depending upon the placement of Rahu and Ketu in the Horoscope, the effects of Kaal Sarp Dosh may differ and the persons having Kaal Sarp Dosh in their horoscope may suffer accordingly. For example, a person may suffer with delayed marriage or disturbance in married life due to the presence of Kaal Sarp Dosh in his horoscope, whereas some other person may feel obstacles in his professional life due to the presence of Kaal Sarp Dosh in his horoscope, someone else may get some serious disease or diseases due to presence of Kaal Sarp Dosh in his horoscope and someone may not be having a child due to the presence of Kaal Sarp Dosh in his horoscope. So the effect of Kaal Sarp Dosh will be different for every horoscope depending upon the placement and strength of Rahu and Ketu among some other factors in a horoscope.
However it is important to note that in many cases all the planets come between Rahu and Ketu Axis, But still there is no Kaal Sarp Dosh formed in the Horoscope whereas one or two planets may be lying outside the Rahu-Ketu Axis in some horoscopes and a Kaal Sarp Dosh may still be present in the horoscope. Hence this defect can not be predicted on the basis of placement of all the planets between Rahu-Ketu axis alone, and the other important factors for the confirmation of this defect should also be checked and only then the presence or absence of this defect should be predicted. And once the presence of Kaal Sarp Dosh in a horoscope is confirmed, the first thing to consider is, which aspects of the person's life having Kaal Sarp Dosh in his horoscope are going to be affected, because even if Kaal Sarp Dosh is present in someone's horoscope, it would only affect some aspects of the life of that person and it does not affect every aspect of his life as there are many other planets also which are to be considered before predicting all the aspects of someone's life. After that the timing of Kaal Sarp Dosh is calculated, which would tell, at what time of his life this Dosh would gain its complete strength.
To have an approximate idea, Kaal Sarp Dosh of a strength which is more than 70% is seen only in about 1 out of 40 horoscopes. And even if a strong Kaal Sarp Dosh is found in a horoscope, its field of impact and its timing of impact is to be calculated before making any predictions. Sometimes a very strong Kaal Sarp Dosh is present in a person's horoscope which is affecting his professional life, but which is sleeping till the person reaches the age of 45. In this case, the affected person would keep on leading his routine life and can be very successful depending upon the presence of some good Yogas in his horoscope. But as he enters his 46nd year, Kaal Sarp Dosh is activated and the person is supposed to face sudden financial losses and then remain financially ruined for the rest of his life and is not likely to get any major relief until some external forces are applied to reduce the effect of Kaal Sarp Dosh. These external forces are called astrological remedies and they can considerably reduce the quantum of the damage done by Kaal Sarp Dosh.These remedies include Pooja, Mantras, Gemstones and Charites in general and their applications differ from person to person depending upon their horoscopes.
