More on Rahu, The Mysterious One

Post by shilpa » Sat Mar 11, 2017 10:53 pm

More on Rahu

Rahu is the mysterious one….a lot is written about Rahu / ketu and yet they remain the least understood because the nodes have no physical existence....are shadow planets, mathematical points in the universe, the mythological stories surrounding them fascinating.....and their charcateristsic least understood as they act inconsistently….when they will act ?and how much will be their impact? is quite varying......and the impact itself can be good bad or ugly……
Whether it becomes Uccha Or Neecha or has it’s own houses is also highly unverifiable

In a continuous attempt to demystify Rahu here are some empirical rules that I have found verifiable over the years and hence worth sharing….

1)When Rahu is “Prabal” for a chart…i.e strong and positive, at the start of the Mahadasa he gives a hit…..can take away the father, son or a close one in the Ra-Ra period…and then starts the ascendancy of the nataive……and bang at the end of the Mahadasa Rahu if "Prabal" gives a big gift, something materially big as a success / gain.

2)Ra does act like a Yogakarak and produces windfall gains / rise if it is conjunct with a Kendra lord in a Kona house or with a kona lord in a Kendra house..

3) The 6th house the THE BEST place for Rahu to be in the chart…it is very hard for enemies to bring down such a native ……although the native will have many enemies….he will fight and win against all enemies and hurdles / adversities.
*As an aside* This automatically puts Ketu in the 12th house, the house of Mokhsa the bets place for ketu to be as the Moksha Karak.

Natives with Ra-Ket on the 6-12 axis would generally be evolved souls…quite advanced in their quest towards Moksha….with deep understanding of the spirituality, karmic theories and “meaning” of life.

What about rahu in the 3rd house? Is that good also? Because it's upachaya house.

Dear Shilpa ji,

I have rahu-ketu placed in 6-12 axis. I am virgo ascendant, rahu is placed in aquarius aspected by saturn from 4th house. So, i have a well placed rahu, as aquarius is the best rashi for rahu. But what about saturn's aspect..saturn is aspecting his own/mooltrikona sign so is it good or his aspect on rahu is bad? Also sun is placed in 12th house with mercury and ketu. Please share your opinion on this.

Thanks & regards,
Abhishek

True Shilpa. Rahu is one planet that has an element of " suddenness " . Anything can happen anytime anyhow anyway under the influence of rahu. All mysterious events and diseases not comprehended by the naked eye or human logic falls under rahu. It is one planet whose remedies are variable across the houses. In the same house, some may benefit by Satvik remedies the others may benefit by rajas. All tantra and spells when under the mysticism of Rahu, give magnified results and are often very difficult to conquer even by most knowledgeable experts.

When you do not know how to pacify rahu, pray Maa Durga.

SA RA period (Jan 2008 - Nov 2010) was a mixed one,

Cons: Dropped our of my med-school due to financial reasons (great loss in life - still a college dropout - i always fear that this education issue shouldn't hurt me in future - got offers to do MBA but didnt try due to time constrains),

Pros: Stood on my own foot, started my own business, joined a govt service abroad (had no issues with finance - looks like planets support their best when im on business as opposed to studies), returned to India, joined IT related company (standing on my own foot and earning on my own are one of the best thing to happen in my life) so i can called it a mixed period.

Please let me know for more details.

Thanks.

Hi Shilpaji,

I also have rahu-ketu in 6-12 axis. I recently completed rahu mahadasha and saturn antardasha. It was very hard in mental and professional terms. I felt like I was always controlled by some force, cannot take and follow my own will. Lost job in the end of 2015 then worked really hard to get new job after 4 months. My details are below, please share your analysis and what you see is coming for me in near future.

Dear Freeloader,


--Sun the lagna Lord is debilitated but attains Neech bhanga..it also attains N.B by being in mutual quadrant to debilitated Mars which also attains Neech bhanga

so in matters pertianing to Sun as lagna lord and and in it's general siginifctaions you will struggle early in life.....
i.e self esteem, leadership, focus and prioritizing matters are stressful and non productive yet .....neverthless....at some point you will "come of age" and learn your lessons

and then the Raj yogas associated with N.B will kick in and both Mars and Sun will bring hugely positive results....

--rahu will simply magnify the results of Sun and Venus and Me.....

before the N.B Raj yoga kicks in...rahu will aplly the negative / stresfull matters related to Sun....and thereafter the positivity.

---so eventually Ra will be acting positively in your chart

Dear Abhishek,

--Ra from a house placement is obviously good in 6th and is in Jupiter's Nk...and jup the dharmakarak is placed in the 9th house fo fortune and dharma.....

Rahu will act like noble Jup and make your righteous, wise , dharmik and brings forward enough blessings that will protect you from enemies / hurdles.

--Ket is also strong....being conjunct with a strong swakshetra sun and in 12th...however Sun itself gets ecplised...a grahan dosha

Get a Rahu Ket / grahan dsha pujan.....they are likely to bring you positive and highs with occasional major unfortunate life events at the start or end of their periods

Hi Shilpa,

I have my rahu in my 9th house for Taurus ASC. But my AK is in 5th house in d9 which is vargothama and pushkaramsa which translates to Dharma pariyani. But I am not religious at all. In an another post my Khoo Ji, I came to know that rahu in 9th gives curse of Dharma and ista devta.
I have started visiting Iskon temple as Krishna since the 12th from my AK is moon which is also vargothama debilitated in Anuradha Nakshatra.
Currently I am jobless and have no clue how to proceed.
Please provide me guidance.

I have my strong rahu which is bhavottama in 3rd house. As far as rahu antardashas are very good, I'm very successsful in those periods let it be dealing with people, let it be studies, those are very good times for me. Right now I'm running my Moon dasha, in which im struggling with having consistency, being in reality etc. but moon rahu is very good for me :) followed by moon-Ju which I suffered like hell now I'm running Moon saturn which is decent enough.
My rahu is in libra conjunct jupiter in 3rd house in D1, in ardra conjunct asc lord (ak) sun(vargottama) in 3rd house of gemini in Navamsa

Dear Manov,

Ra sits in Mar's nakshatra and Ma is YK.....and so Nk placement of Ra is good....
and House placement of Ra is also good in the 6th....

the struggle / stress is due to the weakness of lagna and its lord.....lagna is in acute gandaant 0deg13' in fiery Leo on boundary of watery cancer...and Lagna Lord sun is debilitated.

Dear Helius,
How was your Sa-Ra period
regards
Thanks so much for your reply.

SA RA period (Jan 2008 - Nov 2010) was a mixed one,
Jan 2008 - Feb 2009 : From best student in med school (abroad), started to focus more on part time business due to some financial issues. Joined non-civilian decent paid govt job and got distracted from studies.
Feb - Oct 2009 : Left med school due to financial issues and made non-civilian govt job full time. Loved this job, good salary and much facilities which i never imagined.
Oct 2009 : Returned to India (back to a civilian life).
March 2009 - SA-RA period end was in an ITES job, challenging, decent pay and was somewhat satisfied as i love working overtime (atleast 4 hrs every day).

So overall lost my med-school (great loss in life - still a college dropout - i always fear that this education issue shouldn't hurt me in future - got offers to do MBA but didnt try due to time constrains), stood on my own foot (one of the best thing to happen in my life) so i can called it a mixed period.

Please let me know for more details.

Thanks.
