How To Accurately assess Results of Rahu & Ketu?

We have to assess what results they will give as a planet. To know what houses they are signifying in a chart we have to follow these three steps:  Step 1) Note the Houses Signified by the Lord of Zodiac Sign Step 2) Note the Houses Signified by the Planet(s) Conjunct with them Step 3) Note Houses Signified by the Planet(s) Aspecting them  All the houses obtained are the houses signified by Rahu & Ketu. Calculate the houses signified by Rahu & Ketu separately, do not mix them. They will act as two different planets & usually gives completely different results.

Rahu & Ketu are two shadow planets in Astrology. They are not actually present in skies and they are a consequence of the relative motion of the Sun and the Moon. Rahu & Ketu are also known as Bad Sun & Bad Moon or North Node & South Node of the Moon.

Mythology describes that earlier there was a half demon & half deity known as Svarbhanu, who consumed the elixir of immortality. Lord Vishnu cut his throat with his Spinning Disk (Sudarshana Chakra) in order to stop the elixir getting into his body. But the elixir was already consumed & he remained as immortal. Svarbhanu being a half deity wanted to have a position among the deities and a palace to reside.

Astronomically, these are the points through which when Moon passes Solar & Lunar Eclipse happens. Solar & Lunar eclipse happens at an angle of 180 degrees. Therefore, these points are always 180 degrees apart in the astrological chart.

Rahu & Ketu signifies things which are hidden like underworld. They signify people working in mortuary, cemetery and crematorium. They also signify poverty, dirty & unhygienic places, cheap and secondhand articles.

Rahu is of airy nature & if not well placed will give windy problems. In Ayurveda, we call it Vata Dosha due to which a person can get problem in joints, headache (or migraine), constipation, dryness and weak physique. Rahu signifies worldly attachments, greed, illusions and trickiness. If not well placed gives stupidity, dissatisfaction and insult.

Ketu is of fiery nature & if not well placed can give such problems. In Ayurveda, we call it Pitta Dosha due to which a person can get problems in stomach, acidity, fever, anger and weak bones. Ketu signifies detachments, spirituality, occult and fearlessness. If not well placed gives harsh, angry & irritable nature.

Rahu & Ketu are called nodes of the Moon, without Moon, they cannot exist. Moon is always changing while Sun sheds its light which is uninterrupted. Attachment & detachments are only at the level of mind while the soul is always in bliss no matter what.

"Without Moon (feelings) there cannot be Rahu (worldly attachments) & Ketu (detachments) and the Sun (the self) will always Shine Bright (Experience Bliss)."

Rahu & Ketu are not real planets and they do not own any house, therefore, they do not signify any body part.

People usually say that Rahu is head & Ketu is headless therefore Ketu does not know what to do which is actually false. Ketu is going into depth & seeing what cannot be seen with five senses and fiery nature gives intelligence, therefore, Ketu if well placed can give the understanding of psychology and astrology.

Rahu if well placed gives a person cunning nature, ability to convince people & gain their confidence and windy nature gives them the ability to plan everything in their mind. Due to which Rahu can make a person mastermind. While Jupiter is having good management skills with which Jupiter can take you to progress and growth, Rahu is having great manipulative skills and reaping benefits for personal gains.

Rahu & Ketu have no friendship or enmity with other planets. They simply give results of planets present with them. They work for their own benefit but that’s all is just mythology. We can never get accurate results if we will try to figure out who is fighting with whom and who will win. Planets just move in skies & give results accordingly.

Assessing Results of Rahu & Ketu via Predictive Astrology

We have to assess what results they will give as a planet. To know what houses they are signifying in a chart we have to follow these three steps:

Step 1) Note the Houses Signified by the Lord of Zodiac Sign
Step 2) Note the Houses Signified by the Planet(s) Conjunct with them
Step 3) Note Houses Signified by the Planet(s) Aspecting them

All the houses obtained are the houses signified by Rahu & Ketu. Calculate the houses signified by Rahu & Ketu separately, do not mix them. They will act as two different planets & usually, gives completely different results.

You might have heard that Rahu & Ketu are shadowy planets due to which we do not know what results they will give. Let’s prove this statement via Nadi Astrology through this example.

Example 1: Taurus Ascendant, Rahu in 1st house, Mercury in 1st house, Venus in 11th house, Mars in 10th house, Saturn in 4th house and Jupiter in 9th house.

Lord of Zodiac Sign (Venus): 1 6 11
Planet Conjunct (Mercury): 1 2 5

Planets Aspecting
Jupiter: 8 9 11
Saturn: 4 9 10
Mars: 7 10 12

Houses Signified by Rahu: 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

If you have read my articles, all results are associated with the houses signified by the planets. But here Rahu is signifying 11 houses. How to calculate?

That is how the theory of being a shadow planet works because we do not know what results Rahu will give.

If you forgot Rules of Predictive Astrology, I would like to remind you we also need to know Star Lord & Sub Lord of Rahu.

Suppose, Rahu is in Taurus in Krittika(Star of Sun) and Sub Lord of Moon. Sun in 1st house and Moon in 11th house.

Sun: 1 4
Moon: 3 11

Total House Signification,
Rahu: 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
           1 4
           3 11

Results: Becoming Famous in Media. Apart from that break in love, bad relations in family and promotion in job is also possible.

If you do not know why I gave this result, refer to Career Astrology.

I hope you can see the light of knowledge I am putting on these shadow planets and you would be able to see their results through this light.

Example 2: Saturn and Rahu from above example & Suppose Saturn is in Star & Sub of Rahu.

Astrologers would say Saturn is Beneficial to Taurus Ascendant and being present in 10th house in own sign, Saturn will give great results in its time period.

Saturn: 4 6 10
Rahu: 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Rahu: 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Some serious ups and downs will be experienced in Saturn time period due to this. Now, Astrologers will say, “It’s because Mars (fourth house) and Saturn (tenth house) are in opposite houses due to which Saturn is in a fight and hence cannot give results.”

But now you know why Saturn will give ups (10 11) & downs (6 8 12) in life.

Note: We can still predict major events of life but for that, we also need to check Transits which will be done in later articles.

For now, I can say check the time period of other planets through which you are going through. We always take these three into consideration: Main, Sub and Sub-Sub Time Period. Follow these steps:

  • If you are going through Main Time period of such planet, check Sub and Sub-Sub Time Period.
  • If you are going through Sub Period of such planet simply check the Lord of Main Time Period. - Rule 4 of Rules of Predictive Astrology

Marriage with a Foreigner

Rahu: 2 3 7 9 11 12
If these combinations are observed (vertically or horizontally); Time periods of Sun, Moon, Mars and Jupiter are not in operation or they are not good for marriage. The person gets married to a foreigner.

Marriage with a Divorcee/ Outcast

Marriage in Rahu time period and other planets (whose time period is going on) do not support Marriage.

Note: Only try to predict events and not the nature of events. Predicting marriage is easier than to predict with whom you will get married. It requires practice. Sometimes when Rahu & Ketu gets aspects from many planets then it gets tricky to be accurate with such things. If you practice with events then slowly you will start understanding how planet’s natural significations play their part. Otherwise, your predictions may misguide other people.

Combinations In The Horoscope That Make A Person Rich (Millionaire OR Billionaire)

This methodology of knowing if a person is meant to become rich is not a theory, it is actually practiced and applied on horoscopes to predict about a person's life and to figure out if a person is meant to become really successful and will become rich in his life. In a horoscope, there are 12 houses and 9 planets (excluding Uranus, Neptune and Pluto). Most astrologers see 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 9th, 10th and 11th house, and their lords to see if a person has the capability to become rich and successful. Some also take the benefic aspects from Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and Moon into account.The actual answer does not come through this way. To accurately know if a person is meant to become rich and successful you need to see these three things: The Person's Intelligence Benevolence of The Planets Support from The Time When these three things combine then a person actually becomes successful. I am sure that you find this very logical.

Astrology Basics: Concept of Houses, Sub Lord & Cuspal Sub Lord

The ABC, Astrology Basic Concepts, continues. In previous article, you learned what planets, zodiac signs & constellations are . Now, it is time when you come down from skies and understand some of the basic concepts used in astrology to analyze an astrological chart. Zodiac signs are important and they do have their own set of characteristics as mentioned in the previous article but what actually plays a major role in deciding the fate of a person is the houses a planet signifies. Similarly, the constellation in which a planet is present is capable of changing the nature of events. The planet may not give its own result but starts giving results of the constellation if the constellation lord strongly opposes what the planet is signifying but the Sub Lord holds the final say.

7 Questions About Your Career Answered

Career astrology is about predicting what would be the status of a person in the world. It indicates how much a person can rise in his life irrespective of how much that person is educated. We always see examples where a person who is not much qualified makes millions. Those are the people having a horoscope which does not support education but making money. Due to which these people become smart enough to make huge sums of money without having a very strong educational background. Career astrology is different from predicting & timing events of life. Either an event will happen in life or not but that’s not the case with the career. If planets support the person will attain heights, if they don’t then the person will live an average life and if they are against then a person leads a miserable life. While doing career astrology it’s important to know what is the role of each & every house and relative importance of every house regarding career.

Understanding Nirayana Bhava Chalit Chart & Its Importance in Prediction Making

On observing this sky from the Earth, we see billions of stars. A group of stars when forms a recognizable pattern, we call it a constellation. There could be uncountable number of constellations in the skies depending upon from where we see it. We see them from the Earth and the astronomers have discovered 88 constellations till now. In astrology, we only use 27 constellations and they form the entire zodiac belt. There are 12 zodiac sign in this zodiac belt and each zodiac sign has a width of 30 degrees. Each zodiac sign is owned by a certain planet and a planet can be present either in its own zodiac sign or in some other zodiac sign. The zodiac sign which a planet occupies depends upon the point of reference, the Earth. Earth is moving around the Sun along with other planets, therefore, the speeds of movement of other planets appear to be changing all the time. This happens due to the relative motion of Earth and the other planet. If we change our point of reference from Ea

Rashi Chart or Bhava Chalit Chart for Prediction

In Predictive Hindu Astrology , there is a major role of Bhava Chalit chart. While Rashi chart remains same for almost 2 days, Bhava Chalit chart is changing every minute . It calculates in which cusp a planet and a zodiac sign is actually present. The placement of planets in Rashi Chart & in the Ascendant Chart (Main Birth Chart) is same, it is just that the Ascendant chart is rotated till the Moon comes in the first house and we call it Rashi Chart. I personally recommend that you avoid seeing Rashi Chart as the Ascendant Chart gives the most accurate results. Moon is very important and we do take Moon's placement into account by following the time period system that is just based upon Moon & stars. Now, we have to take the placement of other planets into account. The Ascendant chart indicates which planet was transiting in your 10th house (right above your head) or 7th house (western horizon) or any other house at the time when you were born. The zodiac sign in the

Marriage: Time of Marriage, Married Life and Nature of Future Life Partner

Marriage happens when two people of opposite gender agree to live with each other with the consent of society. Telling this statement is necessary in order for you to understand how to see if marriage is promised by a planet and then to figure out the time of marriage. Marriage is not when two people agree to get into a live-in relationship or mate when they are deeply in love with each other. Mostly when astrologers who fail to predict your marriage timings may tell you this statement that, “You might have been in a live-in relationship with someone or marriage also counts when you have had sex”. This is not true.
