Is Rahu really exalted in Taurus?

Postby hskk » Tue Aug 26, 2008 10:47 am

I have Rahu in Taurus in the 11th house. The lord Venus is in Libra with Saturn. However Rahu dasha has been extremely difficult and stressful.
I am recently hearing of more cases where people with Rahu in Taurus are having unimaginably difficult times. Just wanted to ask all you learned members about this. Thanks.

Exaltation of Rahu

Postby rbha47 » Wed Feb 25, 2009 4:01 pm

Yes it is correct that Rahu is exalted in Taurus and Ketu in Scorpio.

I recently read an article from KN Rao where he pays let attention to the exaltation and debilitation signs of Rahu and Ketu and concentrates more on their dispositors.

You need to provide your date of birth for a more detailed analysis

There are also many jyotish astrologers who consider shadowy planets (Rahu and Ketu) to be best placed in Virgo and second best in Gemini (Mercury signs). This is opinion of James Braha (he was first man who introduce and popularize jyotish to westerners) after He analyzed thousands of horoscopes. Parasara said that Rahu is exalted in Taurus, but Rahu in Taurus does not function nearly as well as Rahu in Virgo. Rahu in Taurus is ok, but nothing special in James Braha experience.

I take Rahu to be exalted in Taurus and have found it working well. Parashara does list this as the exaltation sign for Rahu, and Ketu in Scorpio as exalted, and K.N. Rao insists on it. However, what's important to remember is that Rahu and Ketu are impressionable planets and take on the characteristics of their dispositor (ruler) and also planets that aspect or conjunct them. I do also agree that Rahu is well placed in Mercury's signs, Virgo and Gemini, but I don't consider it exalted in Virgo. Parashara also lists Rahu in Gemini and Ketu in Sagittarius as their mulatrikona signs. Vaughn Paul

[quote="SriRama"]Rahu can be considered a magnifier :) Anything that comes under influence of Rahu gets magnified whether for good or bad. Rahu is that planet which provides extra boost/strength to the area which it influences....again it could be for good or for bad./quote]

Would you please explain this with examples. Like will Jupiter get strengthened when conjunct with Rahu or will Mercury get strengthened when conjunct with Rahu? Rahu is known to eclipse the planet it is with and thus afflict it, so how can it strengthen the planet it gets conjunct with? :roll: Would also like to know how to determine when Rahu in conjunct with a planet will be for good and when it will be bad.

Hi SriRama,

On a lighter note, I was wondering, what about Rahu and Ketu as planets in a parivartan yoga, I have yet to see interpretations done that way. One could say that they are always in that yoga. (??!)

Anyway, what could be the results of say

rahu, ravi, buddha and guru in 11th house in vrishabh, and

shukra in 12th in mithun

( point to note is shukra and buddha are in parivartan yoga here).

The more the planets, the more complex becomes the exact interpretation, don't you think?

Sri Rama,

You have wonderfully explained as to how Rahu expands the qualities of the planets it gets associated with, but then how is it eclipsing the same planets? Would be very glad if you take up any one planet and explain how Rahu magnifies its significance as well as eclipses its significance simultaneously.

You said: "Ra with Ju: On positive side could represent a person who has a good life abroad/inclined to explore other faiths/beliefs"

What is the reason Rahu-Jupiter will take a person abroad?

You said: "Ke with Ju: This combination is very good for spirituality, may denote someone who is very spiritual but too humble to admit that. Ketu is withdrawn remember!"

But isn't Ketu magnifying the qualities of Jupiter rather than repressing it here?

Thanks once again.

Results of Rahu

Postby Ashok » Sat Mar 21, 2009 7:52 pm

I have personally verified the "magnified" results of Rahu especially when exalted in Taurus. The key is the major aspect & association ruling Rahu.

For example, Shah Rukh Khan has Rahu exalted inthe 10th house aspected by 4th and 9th lord Mars who is in 4th house in Scorpio.
See the remarkable status & fame the actor has achieved. Note
that Mars although a natural malefic is a yogakaraka owning 4th
& 9th house.

In another case, I have seen Rahu exalted in the 2nd house aspected
by 2nd lord Venus. The native has exceptional verbal skills, and Rahu
proved extremely beneficial bestowing great material blessings related
to means of livelihood (2nd house).

Here, I would like to say that Rahu can do the impossible. For example,
a man can be killed by snake poison but concentrated snake poison in the form of an antidote can actually save a person from death by snakebite. Similar is the effect of a benefic Rahu. He does what no other planet can do. This is, of course, true in different ways for all the planets.

Rahu gives extraordinary material abundance & fame but he is by nature insatiable and his results practically prove that material abundance does not lead to inner contentment. Strong Rahu also makes a person quick, powerful, royal and fearless.

Remember, Rahu is the "asura Raja" or king of the demons ie: he rules the materialistic ocean of ego/desire/attachment/illusion ie: samsara in which most beings are entangled.

rahu

Postby devpatel » Mon Nov 09, 2009 7:14 pm

I agree,

Other great people with exalted Rahu in Upachaya are,

George W Bush - Taurus Rahu Exalted in 11th house
became the World's most powerful man.

Sonia Gandhi - same Rahu in 11th house
Indias most powerful person

There are many other like Digvijay singh and other
remarkable people with Rahu Exalted of taurus in
upachaya.

It is certainly seen that NO other planet can bestow the results
what a Exalted rahu can, especially in upachaya.

Majority of people who become leaders have thier Rahu's in
upachaya.

Cheers, Dev

Dear SriRama,

What are the signs in which Rahu, Ketu do not do well?

If Moon is enemy to Rahu, why does it work well in Cancer?

Also, what about Rahu/ketu assocaited with SAT and Venus?
How do they magnify and contract the nature of SAT and
Venus?

Mahesh

rahu

Postby devpatel » Sat Nov 14, 2009 6:10 am

About my Rahu antardasha at present,

I have Rahu in 3rd house, exalted in taurus. Moon in pisces
in Lagna. Jupiter in 9th house.

I am passing thru Rahu antardasha at present in Venus Mahadasha.
Its been the best time ever so far in
my life. It was unbelievable.... cant write more coz of confidentiality.
In Feb and March 09, few thing really changed and i did
get what i wanted. Also I used to work a stressful job until the rahu sub period began, now i am in a much better position.
I am 100 % sure that the next 2 years are going to be extremely
fruitful and my wishes will come true.
Here, In my case , Rahu occupies the 3rd house Exalted from Both the lagna
and moon , hence results are certain and effective.

I have Rahu in Scorpio which is supposed to be Debilated and running Rahu MD not very pretty at all but there has been good things too.. so I don't think that one principle or rule cannot be taken and applied. That is what the traditional astrologers have banked on with some set of principles inherited.

Rahu gives good results in 3,6 and 11. For you the additional bonus is exaltation and rahu being in 3rd from lagna and moon both. God bless you :)

Dear Friends,

"Rahu gives good results in 3,6 and 11. For you the additional bonus is exaltation and rahu being in 3rd from lagna and moon both. God bless you"—

Astrosonu you are absolutely right. I have a very close relative, who had Rahu in the 3rd house in Meena. A classic example of Kubera yoga. And it has worked. He is one of the most highly regarded homeopath in kolkata and has amassed a huge fortune. But he attained this after he was 38 years of age. Before that, he was living a very ordinary life of an accountant. He got interested in homeopathy at around 32-33. Got into Medical College—studied for 4 years. Started his profession around late 36. Within two years he was going up.

Also, I wonder about Sachin's Horoscope. He has Rahu in the 4th house (sagittarius). Should we consider Rahu in Sagittarius debilitated?

Infact my mother has rahu in the first house in Sagittarius. She's running rahu dasa for the last 7-8 years. It's been going really well for her. Keeping fingers crossed. Her lagna lord Jupiter is exalted in the 8th house. Is Rahu in this case amplifying the power of the lagna lord Brihaspati?

Also there's request: my brother in law has just entered Rahu-Dasa. His Rahu is in the 10th house in Taurus. His chart is:

Lagna—Simha
Kanya—blank
Libra—blank
Scorpio—Ketu
Dhanu—Moon
Makara—Blank
Kumbh—Shukra
Meena—Shani, Sun
Mesh—Mangal
Vrisha—Rahu
Mithuna—Brihaspati
Karkata—Blank

Do you think this dasha will be good for him?

Thanks

Dear Astrosonu,
Thank you so much for your reply. :) He is running Rahu-rahu right now. Things are improving. But could you please tell me, which antardasha would be most gainful. Will it be rahu-venus? Rahu is in venus house and venus is in rahu's house (if we take aquarius as Rahu's own sign). There's a parivartan yoga between 7th and 10th houses. Do you think it will be good for him?

Thanks a tonne

The good angles from where rahu is placed will be most beneficial. Specially if there are any exchange of good houses, you can expect exponential gains. Rahu in its dasa ONLY will act like its dispositor i.e. the owner of that particular house.

Hi Astrosonu,

As you said, RAHU will act like its dispositor, how do we determine, he will give good results in 3,6 and 11.

For ex: I have RA in 3rd house where as its dispositor ME is in 8H. So, RA has to give bad results though placed in 3H.

Please share your knowledge. Thanks

Rahu will give results as if placed as mercury in 3rd ONLY during rahu dasa. For all other times, rahu will act as itself in 3rd house which is also an upachaya house. Rahu will benefit the individual in this house.
