| RAHU |
Rahu also called as Dragon's Head or Ascending Node. It is a shadow planet which means that it does not have any physical existence. Even then the positive as well as negative effects of planet Rahu are very profound on human lives and have been very well documented in our Ancient sacred texts and unfavorable planet Rahu can cause all kinds of problems, obstructions, failures, illness and confusions which might lead to a very miserable life. Even when planet Rahu is in conjunction with planets like Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Moon and Sun, it forms various bad Yogas which can result in all kinds of troubles in a person's life.
Rahu is the planet of intuition and may be called the master of manipulation. Rahu can be considered to be expert among the planets when it comes to scheming and plotting that is why it can be said to be the better politician than Saturn. Rahu is the luck factor behind instant success or failure, its result both good and bad manifests in such an unexpected manner that the native involved hardly has any time to react to the situation.
According to the ancient Vedic system, nature has three major gunas- rajsic, satvic and tamsic. Rahu can function in all the three modes. Rahu gives prosperity when functions in a rajsic mode, Rahu gives knowledge and wisdom when functions in a satvic mode, Rahu gives inertia, inactivity, demonic tendencies and destruction when functions in tamsic mode. Rahu likes the night time - this is probably the reason why most criminals choose night time for their activities.
The planet Rahu is said to be EXALTED in zodiac sign Taurus and DEBILITATED in Zodiac sign Sagittarius in a person's Natal Chart. The planet Rahu gives good results if it is placed in the 3rd, 6th or the 11th house of a person's Natal Chart. Hence, if the planet Rahu is placed in any other house or it is in a DEBILITATED state or it is in conjunction with other planets then it may give bad results thereby making it necessary to be pacified. Rahu represents hidden enemies, wrong diagnosis of illness, Success, Name & Fame, Victory over Enemies & Foreign connections.
