Rahu Nature in Astrology

In olden days there is demon called Swarabhanu.  While the sagara madhana got the amrutha kalasam. At the time they usually distributing equally. But Amrutha kalasam went to Devthas. Who drinks it they will not have any death. So Swarabanu theft it.  The god mahavishnu cut the head of swarabhanu. Unfortunalty drink that so.   Head and body dived in 2 parts. Head is called Rahu, Headless Body is Ketu.   Head contains senses like,  Eyes, Tongue, skin, Ears, Nose etc. Rahu is desired, greedy want to enjoy all the things. But real thing is head can’t enjoy it. Body requires it.

Rahu is node planet (Chaya Graham). Even it can dominate any planet in horoscope.  It’s going to give extreme ness of all planets in horoscope.

Few of important nature & behavior of Rahu is important in predictions.

Rahu being 3,6,10,11 will give strong results.  Being malefic these positions will be better.

Rahu is just smoke. It depends on situation it will act. Just observe the energy of planet, sign, star will reflect the results.

Rahu indicates foreign. If connected with 12th house & Saturn can send you abroad locations.

Every rule is rule but you must understand when, where you have to apply. Depends on experience you will gain it.

In my practical observation. Being rahu in 10th & mars aspects it will going rock in life.  Careful with gambling in life. Otherwise can effect on health or next generation.

In any horoscope Mars & Saturn  are important for success, execution of anything in life.

Planets usually carry the other planets energy also. Ex: Rahu can carry Venu, Mercury, Sun, Moon etc.  Saturn can pass their energy in current dasha. It depends which star it occupied.

Rule 2) Rahu can be in any place just observe the star its occupied in horoscope.  (2,10,11 Good houses.)

          Example :
