Rahu is the ascending node of the moon and it afflicts the Moon more than any other planet.

Rahu points to the direction of spiritual growth for an individual and wherever he is placed in a chart there will be a tendency to indulgence or obsession. In many ways the path that Rahu indicates is designed to lead the individual to self-destruction. It is said that Rahu gives and Ketu takes away but to be more accurate Rahu gives in the same manner that a drug dealer "gives' since what he gives is designed to hook into you and become a need which leads toward one’s own downfall.

Rahu is especially associated with the sense of emptiness that must be fed regardless of the problems it causes. This is the emptiness of the addict, the workaholic or the serial killer.

Rahu has a very strong affiliation with the air. Airplanes, aviation, pilots and space travel all fall under his influence. Rahu can involve one in areas of life considered somewhat taboo by conventional society such as astrology, metaphysics, occultism, witchcraft, cults, skin diseases, executions and epidemics. Rahu also has a tendency to drive one toward areas where deception and the hidden aspect of something play a large role such as politics, revolutions, drugs, secret societies, mysteries, inventions, scientists, deceit, affairs and taboo sexual appetites.

Snakes encountered in dreams or in life are often thought to be manifestations of Rahu.

Rahu has a special affiliation with Garlic, which is said to have sprung from the ground where his blood fell.
The Seagull or Gull is known to be an aspect of Rahu.
Astrological Significance - Rahu
Rahu is the signification of the following as per Uttara Kalamrita.

a) Faulty Logic b) Harsh speech c) Outcaste d) an irreligious person e) going to a foreign country f) Unclean g) Bones h) abdominal ulcers i) Falsehood j) South western direction k) serpents l) Old age m) Maternal grandfather n) Worship of Vana Durga o) Writing Urdu or Persian (Because these two languages start from right hand side, written in reversed manner, like Rahu and Ketu’s movement in Zodiac, which is retrograde or Apsavya move. p) Breathing q) Acute duodenal pain.

It is observed that a strong Rahu is good for the above mentioned significations and weak Rahu shows just the opposite.

Other Considerations -Rahu:

Rahu is considered to be Swagruhi (in its own House) when it is in Virgo. It is exalted when placed in Taurus while it is debilitated when in Scorpio. However, there are divergent views on this. Some authorities take the Exaltation and Debilitation points as Gemini and Sagittarius respectively. It is said that Rahu gives Yogkaraka result if it is in Cancer. However, it has to be noted that being a Shadow planet (Chhaya Grah) it gives results based on other planetary influences. It is generally observed that with a benefic or in benefic influence it gives very good result. It is generally considered as a good planet for worldly comforts. However, Rahu also signifies delusions and vanity. In modern times Rahu represents Computers, Internet and Mass Media.

Rahu is friendly to Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. It considers Sun and Moon as its enemies and towards Mercury it is Neutral.

Other Names:

Tamas, Rahu, Asura, Swarbhanu, Vidhuntuda, Pata, Sainhikeya, Bhujanga and Ahi. The common term is Rahu.


Rahu represents indulgence and expansion to the point of fault. Smoke, mental illness (over expanded consciousness), losses, theft, death of family members, and air disasters are other negative aspects.

Rahu does have a positive influence on gambling or speculation, which takes place in activities like investing in the Stock Market. Another positive aspect is his ability to heal diseases. Foreigners and sudden changes also fall under the area of Rahu.


The Goddess Durga is often associated with Rahu and on occasion her dark counterpart Kali. The Nagas are always a manifestation of Rahu and sometimes snakes in general are considered the same. One could make a good case for Medusa of Greek mythology to be another manifestation of Rahu.

The direction Southwest is given to the ruler ship of Rahu. The age of 42 is considered to be the time in which Rahu comes to full fruition. Rahu owns no particular sign. However, he is considered exalted in Taurus (which also has a tendency to overindulge) and his fall is in Scorpio. Rahu is malefic as a whole though he does bring about the tendency of being "lucky". The color black is associated with Rahu as well as the color "smoke". His metal is Lead, like Ketu. The wind or air is considered the element of Rahu. Rahu has a Vatta constitution in Ayurveda.

Areas of effect to look for changes:

Accidents, afflictions, cosmic law, rebirth, air disasters, cheating, corruption, drug addiction, destiny or fate, consumption, insects, poison, deceit, power hungry, widowhood, inevitability, karma, aloneness, fear, things or people foreign, apathy, hard times, intense pain, snakes, radical changes, luck, wealth through inheritance, corruption, madness, schizophrenia, delusions


Ketu is the descending node of the moon through the eyes of Indian Astrology. Ketu is known to afflict the Sun more so than any other planet. This is in contrast to Rahu, which is associated with the Moon.

Ketu is also associated with comets and like its associate Rahu it is known to be exceedingly cruel and malefic. Though interpreting Ketu is somewhat difficult the basic theme seems to be release and transformation. More specifically Ketu points to the past life karma of an individual through its placement in the chart.

Ketu brings about spiritual enlightenment. Unfortunately it does through the placement of problems, pain and roadblocks, which are meant to help us in our spiritual growth. Ketu has a tendency to behave like Mars and as a result fire and accidents are also associated with Ketu.

Special note should be made of the Ketu dasha cycle. The dasha of Ketu lasts seven years and it is common knowledge in Vedic astrology that Ketu always has a "sting" in its tail. This means that somehow the end of a Ketu dasha cycle will be potentially problematic or troublesome.

Ketu and Rahu have the same affiliations for animals which are the following: snakes, camels, the ass, wolves, rodents, mosquitoes, scorpions and any other animal that utilizes poison in its defense. No food is associated with Ketu or Rahu.

Ketu is especially affiliated with the owl.

Astrological Significance- Ketu
Ketu is the signification of the following as per Uttara Kalamrita

a) Worship of Chandi, Ganesh and others b) Medical practitioner c) Vultures d) Final emancipation e) Consumption f) Painful fevers g) Bath in Gangesh h) Great penance i) Wind complaints j) Mantra Shastra k) Instability of mind l) Diseases of the stomach and eye m) Vedanta n) Grandfather o) Small pox or boils p) A servant of Shiva q) Association with foreigner or Shudras.

It is observed that a strong Ketu generally gives good result and a malefic Ketu creates lots of hindrances in life.
Other Considerations –Ketu:

Ketu is exalted in Scorpio and debilitated when in Taurus. However, some astrologers have given the Exaltation and Debilitation points as Sagittarius and Gemini respectively. It has to be said that Ketu is more towards spiritual side and is the Karaka for final emancipation whereas Rahu is more towards worldly pleasures. Again it has to be said that being a Shadow planet (Chhaya graha) Ketu gives results according to associations with other planets in a Kundali.

However, in spite of having number of ancient texts extensively dealing with various signs of exaltation and debilitation of Rahu and Ketu there occurs significant amount of controversy over the same.

Ketu is friendly to Mars, Venus and Saturn. It considers Sun and Moon as his enemies and towards Mercury and Jupiter it is Neutral

Other Names:

Ketu, Sikhin, Dhvaja, Dhum, Mrityu Putr and Anala. The common term is Ketu.

Other noted areas under his influence are ascetics, renunciation, assassinations, cats, clairvoyance, contemplation, desire for knowledge, deep thinking, imprisonment (like Saturn), poison, intrigues, magical powers, poverty and mysticism.


Ketu is associated with the god Brahma and Chitra Gupta. Another popular affiliation is Ganesha, which seems more intuitive considering he is known as the "remover of obstacles".

Ketu has an unusual association in terms of direction. He is most often noted to be the "center" which is really no direction at all.

Rahu-Ketu Transit Effect – Prediction for 2016-17

On 30th January 2016 Saturday, at 07-01 IST Rahu will enter Leo and Ketu will enter Aquarius as per Tirukanitha Panjang. (As per Vaakya Panjang 09-01-2016 Saturday at 11-20 IST) Their movements will affect each sign in different manner. Let us look the impact of Rahu and Ketu Transit on various zodiac moon signs.

aries mesa rasi predictions Aries (Mesha )

Rahu will be in the 5th house, which signifies education, stock market and children. Students will encounter obstacles on the academic front and lose their concentration. It is advised that you work hard and stay focused. The ones who are newly married and planning to start a family may suffer miscarriage due to Rahu’s position in the 5th house. But with the medical help and blessings of Lord Shiva they may receive positive results too. Stock market investors will take wrong decisions and invest money in non-profitable shares.

Rahu-Ketu axis in 5th and 11th houses:

5th house is a place of intelligence, luck, speculation and progeny while 11th house is of material gain. Lord of either an angle or a trine in 5th house bestows Raja yoga to the native and, therefore, he would be induced to use his potential for spiritual and material gain. Such persons will be noble, learned, courageous and successful in their life. If Rahu or Ketu be placed in the 5th and there are inimical planets in the 8th then strokes of misfortune will hit the native through the 11th house. The relatives indicated by the planets of the 5th and 8th houses will also be affected. In this situation the earnings of the native will also be affected very adversely, if the 2nd house is empty. Nothing will be able to save the native. Now the planets of the 10th and 5th will also turn to be malefic whatever be their natural character. Ketu’s placement in eleventh and twelfth house is considered extremely auspicious, where it gives results to make a person’s worth equivalent to that of kings. If Rahu and Ketu are with either Sun or Moon in 5th, 6th, 8th or 12th house, Pitru Dosha appears which destroys the benefits of the horoscope of the native and create obstacles in the path of his progress.

Taurus Rishaba rasi predictions Taurus (Rishaba)

Rahu will be in the 2nd house and Ketu will reside in the house of Karma. You may take few actions but they will result into negative consequences. There may be chances of change in the job under negative influences. Those associated with real estate sector need to be extra careful as there are possibilities of incurring losses.

Rahu-Ketu axis in 4th and 10th houses:

This very sensitive place of the horoscope which signifies property, conveyance, domestic happiness and well beings of mother. Vedic astrology does not consider this axis good in 4th house. Phaladeepika says that with Rahu in 4th house, the native will have a short span of life and seldom happiness. Similarly, Manasagari does not depict good results, i.e, the native shall be devoid of wealth, happiness and paternal property. Actually, these adverse consequences are observed when the node is influenced by another malefic such as Sun, Mars or Saturn. I have found that Sun-Rahu Mars-Rahu and Saturn-Rahu in 4th house squeeze the fragrance of life. A male native of a chart with Sun-Mercury-Venus-Saturn-Rahu could not accumulate wealth, property and conveyances; however, he is bestowed with good family. A female native with Mars-Rahu in 4th house could not avail domestic and marital happiness throughout her life. 4th house belongs to Moon which is an enemy of Rahu. If Rahu is alone (free from affliction) in 4th house and Moon is strong, the native would be intelligent, wealthy, prosperous and enjoying comfortable life. If Rahu is malefic and Moon is weak then the native would lead his life full of poverty and devoid of maternal happiness.

gemini Mithuna rasi predictions Gemini (Mithuna)

Rahu will be in your 3rd house, which is the house of apprenticeship. However, it will not create any unfavorable situation for you due to the favorable transit of Jupiter. However, if you are associated with hospitality sector like travelling and tourism, you may face some challenges during this transit. You may even feel you are not getting the results as per the efforts put on by you.

Rahu-Ketu axis in 3rd and 9th houses:

The 3rd house signifies courage to implement the intelligence, younger brothers and sisters and short journeys while 9th house is a place of destiny. The axis in these houses gives a sharp, courageous, inventive mind, progressive attitude and dedication to work. Thus Rahu-Ketu do well in these houses, where they give lot of money, movement in a direction selected to proceed towards progress, victory and success. The person wears a golden crown, a symbol of richness, power and triumph. When Rahu-Ketu are in 3rd and 9th houses and malefic in 6th and/or 8th, the axis cannot be considered good for longevity of the native as well as his younger brothers. If some-how the 3rd and 9th houses are bad, the 5th will also prove bad. If the 9th is occupied by Sun or Moon, then Rahu or Ketu in the 5th will neither affect the issues of the native or the native himself adversely. Rahu or Ketu in watery sign in 9th house provide opportunity for foreign travel.

canser katakam, karka rasi predictions Cancer (Katakam)

Rahu will be transiting through the 2nd house, which is the house of money and material. As per the predictions, this is not positive sign. Your family life is also affected by Rahu’s placement in this house. Your harsh comments can spoil the relation with loved ones. Decision regarding the monetary investments may turn out to be wrong. You will face issues with your income. Old age people can face problem in their eyes. Situations arising from nowhere will surprise and shock you.

Rahu-Ketu axis in 2nd and 8th houses:

The Second house signifies tangible assets such as finances and intangible assets such as eye sight, memory, tongue and eloquence. Profoundly, this is a place of accumulation of wealth, education, honor and longevity where this axis is not considered good. Because, if either node is afflicted (by any of Sun, Mars, Saturn) or associated by Venus, the native develops bad habits and his tongue is not praise-worthy. Businessmen, if have such affected Rahu-Ketu axis in 2nd and 8th houses, should be aware of heavy loss of wealth.

leo simha rasi predictions Leo (Simha )

Rahu will transit over the Natal Moon. This will cause problems on many levels. Rahu will be transiting through the ascendant and will disturb your health as well as mental balance. You will feel disappointed sometimes and dissatisfied sue to several unknown reasons. To achieve the desired results you need to work harder than expected. Worship Lord Shiva to destroy problems from your life.

Rahu-Ketu axis in 1st and 7th houses:

This place stands for self, life, longevity, vitality, complexion, nature and out look towards life of the native. In fact, all fiery signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) in ascendants give independence, broad outlook, outgoing personalities, and courage, enthusiasm and leadership qualities. An unaffiliated Rahu in this position augments these characteristics and gives opportunities of earning wealth and property from unexpected sources. But, if afflicted then he is not only responsible for ill temper but also causes diseases of mouth and teeth. By the effect of Mars-Rahu, the teeth of the native become weak and begin to fall at the age of 40 years. However, in 1st house Rahu is considered better than Ketu for marital snugness and physical gains - accumulation of wealth, position and prosperity. But, in 7th house Rahu becomes exorbitant for sexual urge, especially when Rahu gets associated with Mars or Venus. It is stated in astrological texts that if Rahu in 7th house is hemmed by malefic such as Sun, Mars or Saturn then discord of married life and even danger to the life of life partner is most likely to occurs. In my experience, multiple marriages of the native have been observed. In 1st house Ketu in adverse position is not conducive to health, religious and charitable thinking and working.

Pisces Meena rasi predictions Pisces (Meena)

Rahu will be situated in the 6th house from your Natal Moon. This house reflects illness, enemy and job. While Rahu is in your 6th house, there are possibilities of growth in the enemies that too without any reason. However, you will be able to defeat them. You may face some health issues but in health checkups there will be nothing major concern. You will certainly have difference in opinion with your superiors.

Rahu-Ketu axis in 6th and 12th houses:

In horoscope, 6th house denotes debt, disease, enemy, mental worries, extravagance, obstacles and calamity in life while 12th house signifies expenditure, loss, confinement, conjugal relations, secret enemy, conspiracy, foreign travels, divine knowledge, emancipation and renunciation. Since 6th house is considered a place of Virgo sign ruled by Mercury and12th house a place of Pisces ruled by Jupiter, Rahu in 6th is in a state of exaltation and Ketu in 12th house is an indication of emancipation and renunciation. It is observed that Rahu-Ketu axis in 6th and 12th houses confers the potential for good judgment of how to struggle in life. Such natives have outstanding organizational and administrative capabilities and hence conquer enemies in either battlefield of business, politics and administration. The axis gives opportunities of foreign travel. Ketu in sixth house is a good placement in making an individual generous and famous. In fact, in 12th either node when is free from Mars and Venus but receives aspect of divine Jupiter, initiates the native towards spiritualism who triumph himself over materialism. 12th house is Pakka Place of Rahu, from where the native gains divine knowledge. But, if at this place, Rahu is associated with Mars or Venus, then these adverse associations in dice the native towards extravagance. Such natives get entangled in licentious activities and then they are stray dogs (drown in debt and disease).


The delay in marriage is usually attributed to some 'dosha' in the horoscope of the boy or girl to be married. Rahu - Ketu 'Parihara' is considered as the main remedy for neutralizing the 'dosha'.

Rahu and Ketu are shadowy planets. Their movement is interrelated and as parts of one body they are at all times just opposite to each other but keeping in view of aspect (drishti), they can be regarded together. Both of them are considered together in the later houses. For example, if Rahu is in the first house and Ketu is in the seventh house, in this case both will be supposed to be together in the seventh house (which is one of the later houses). Node in House No. 1 to 6 will merge its effect into house No. 7-12 except house No. 5 & 11 where each node has its individual effect confined to that house only.


In general, Rahu carries the positive and beneficial tone of Jupiter and hence stands for growth and development and self-help while Ketu expresses the restrictions and obstacles of Saturn and hence thought to restrict growth. In this way Rahu represents positive objectives and Ketu denotes the easy way out with little opportunity for growth. Thus Rahu signifies materialism and desires, whereas Ketu signifies spiritual tendencies and process of the refinement of materialization to spirit but obstacles in the material realm. Rahu is considered to be wile, deceitful and dishonest. After all, Rahu did succeed in tricking Vishnu in serving him immortal nectar. Therefore, Rahu is described as a liar, foul mouth and full of criticism about others. He creates psychiatric disorders and other diseases of mind, especially when conjunct with Moon. However, if well placed in one's horoscope, Rahu gives courage, prestige and fame. It can bring out extraordinary qualities in terms of supernatural in an individual.


Ketu is considered both malefic and benefic, as it causes sorrow and loss, and yet at the same time it turns the individual to God and the final liberation from the cycle of birth and death. Therefore, Ketu is an indicator of intelligence, wisdom, non-attachment, penetrating insight, derangement, and psychic abilities. Despite of such negative characteristics, we survive with the wrath of these evil planets because they are bound to affect one or more houses in our horoscopes.

During this Rahu-Ketu transit period the following Transits are there: Jupiter enter in to Virgo (Kanya) on 11-08-2016 and Saturn enter in to Sagittarius (Dhanus) on 26-01-2017 Important Rahu / Ketu Temples:
