Umbilical Cord Around Neck

According to Hindu / Vedic Astrology, a newly born baby who took birth with the Umbilical Cord revolved around the neck is being considered as inauspicious. Umbilical Cord around the neck of a baby is a symbol of a snake strangling it to suffocation. People knowing Vedic Astrology calls this by name of ‘Nali Veshthita’. In Vedic Astrology, Rahu considered as the head of the snake, and Ketu denotes the rest of the body.

Skeptics may refuse to believe in such things, but it is a truth and also have proven records to furnish.

Sarpa Dosha Impact, Puja and Remedies

It is widely believed that the childless couples will be blessed with a child if they observe the Naga Panchami Vrata. Those who read the story from the Sarpa Satra or Sarpa Yaga from Mahabharata on the day of Naga Panchami after worshipping Sarpas will be greatly relieved from the problems due to Sarpa Dosha.

  1. When Rahu is in a Movable Sign the cause for the serpents’ anger is the destruction of serpent eggs.

The traditional remedy is the donation of small golden eggs to the deity. The number of golden eggs relates to the Badhaka House; 11 eggs for moveable Ascendant, 9 eggs for fixed Ascendant, and 7 eggs for dual Ascendant. In a modern interpretation, the Movable Sign represents the destruction of ecosystem breeding grounds and one can donate to an organization which works to improve this part of the environment. The number of golden eggs would indicate the proper amount to give in donation instead.

  1. Rahu in a Fixed Sign indicates the serpents are angry due to the cutting of trees (dispirited nature destroyed).

The traditional remedy is the replanting of trees. In the traditional sacred plantation, whenever a tree has removed another tree was planted right away. In the present scenario there are many reforestation projects are there, where one may donate or plant trees themselves.

  1. When Rahu is in a dual sign it indicates the killing of the young serpents.

The traditional remedy is to offer small golden snakes in the number according to the Ascendant. The modern interpretation of this is that karma relates to the destruction of an ecosystem where the young animals, serpents, birds, etc. mature and live. The modern remedy would be the support of conservation programs.


The above said rules are seem too big to remember and if we think properly then we’ll find that every second person is suffering from such a serious dosha. As per astrology, Yogas and/or Doshas are rare phenomenon and not found present often in every horoscope. Hence may assumed that Sarpa Dosha is not formed according to its prevalent definitions. There should be more conditions which needs to be met in order for the formation. If such dosha once formed in a horoscope, the strength of this dosha, the fields of native’s life which are going to be hit by this dosha and the timing of impact of this dosha should also be calculated before making final prediction. The malefic effects of Sarpa Dosha can be rectified or reduced with the application of astrological remedies.
