RAHU MAHADASHA: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

90% of the people who come to me for a consultation come because of a Rahu-Ketu or a Saturn period (Mahadasha or Antardasha).

“Rahu tumhe picture dikhayega” (Rahu will make you watch a movie) This is what I tell most of my clients

When I wrote my Ketu Mahadasha article, I had no idea that it would go viral and I would get reactions from places as far as Netherlands. After that my clientele, especially the esteemed whatsapp group asked me to write about Rahu Mahadasha. This was a challenge because Rahu isn’t a one track planet like Ketu. Ketu is totally unbiased and it gives similar results to almost everyone. However, Rahu does play favorites and can give different kinds of results to different people depending upon its placement in the Langa chart and Navamasa. Hence a disclaimer is in order: This might not apply to 100% of the people.

So I would use two types of categories in this article, “Favorable Rahu” and “Unfavorable Rahu”. In my experience, I have seen Rahu give great results in house 2, 10, and 11. It gives bad results in 8, 12, and 4, in rest of the houses it is not that bad, however, even in those it would give unfavorable results more often than not. So keeping that I mind, let’s start.

“Rahu tumhe picture dikhayega” (Rahu will make you watch a movie) This is what I tell most of my clients, and this is what happens. Depending upon their Karma, Rahu can make them watch a happy movie full of growth and rapid rise, or can make them see a horror movie (this happens to majority). However, in most of the cases, in the end all that rahu promises turns out to be smokes and mirrors.  At the end of the Rahu Mahadasha one realizes that all that he or she has been chasing was nothing but a mirage. Those who get bad results laugh at the futility of their worries, and those who get good results often turn their back realizing the worthlessness of the pursuit.

 

Understanding Rahu: As per scriptures, after the churning of ocean, when Amrita (nectar of immortality) came out, both demons and gods got into a fight for this. In order to protect common beings and preventing demons from becoming immortal, Lord Vishnu decided to interfere. He took Avatar as most beautiful of all women, Mohini and bewitched the demons who were captivated by her beauty. Tricking the demons, the Lord distributed Amrita to Gods and poison to the demons. Humanity has to thank Lord Vishnu for this, imagine  hundreds of demonic planets in your chart. Out of the mercy in his heart for the common beings, the Lord resorted to tricking the demons.

Under the spell of Mohini’s beauty the demons swallowed poison, however, one of them, the most intelligent and alert, demon named Swarbhanu was focused on his goal and he was the only one who realized what Mohini was doing, he transformed himself into a god and took a drop of Amrita (the nectar of immortality) by fooling Lord Vishu himself. However, Lord was beaconed by Sun and Moon about this and He immediately used his weapon Sudarshan Chakra and beheaded Swarbhanu. But by then Swarbhanu had take a drop of Amrita and had become immortalized.

His body was divided into two but he did not die. The severed head became Rahu and the headless torso became Ketu. They were eventually accepted in the solar system and were given status of planets. This story is the best hint towards understanding the nature of Rahu.

Rahu is the personification of desire, the primordial rebel and rule breaker, who went against the “authority” and got what he wanted using “any means necessary”. Rahu is desire and passion incarnate and is never shy of using all kinds of means in order to attain his goals. He is smart, cunning, daring, and focused to the point of obsession.

Rahu is also vengeful and it is said that during the eclipse, Rahu swallows the Sun and the Moon in order to avenge himself.

Despite all the fear mongering around him, Rahu is not all that bad, in fact the richest and most successful people in the world have a well placed Rahu and Saturn. Rahu is the passion for growth and success. Anyone who wants more, has some influence of Rahu, it could be more wealth, more power, more knowledge or even more charity, Rahu is behind that. When someone wrote the iconic dialogue of cult classic movie Wall Street, “Greed is good” I can bet that the person was under influence of Rahu. For the record, the villain of Wall Street Gordon Gekko, one of the most famous movie character ever, in my view had a Rahu + Mercury together making him the evil genius that he was.

However, Rahu has a rebellious streak that comes in handy off and on. When Sun the ruler becomes a Tyrant, Rahu the rebel takes up arms against him and restores the balance. All revolutions in the world were promoted by Rahu. All the growth and development was inspired by Rahu. All the scientific breakthroughs, up to and including the Internet, using which you are reading this article, were brought to mankind by Rahu.

Being a bodiless head, Rahu has insatiable hunger. It is greed personified, it normally boosts the significations related to the house it sits in, but mostly in a non-living significations, whereas being a malefic it damages the living significations. E.g. while Rahu in 2nd house brings a lot of wealth, it creates conflicts with the family.

The role of Rahu is very important in a mans’ life because wherever Rahu sits, that becomes your goal in this life. Thus Rahu in 2nd house of wealth or 11th house of gains, or 10th house of Karma is great for the native, especially in Kaliyuga. Understanding this planet and using its energies properly can open the doors of dramatic growth and development. Even a Rahu in 8th which I consider the worst placement if utilized properly can open up great secrets of the universe for a man. During Rahu Mahadasha, the significations of the house it sits in become the goal of the person.

 

The following things often happen during the Rahu Mahadasha:

  1. Desperate Me: During the Mahadasha of the planet, you become GRAHA ROOP i.e. you start behaving like the planet whose Mahadasha you are facing. During Rahu period, people become desperate, chase illusions, become a tad selfish and cynical, and are almost possessed by passion and have rebellious streak. This can bring them pleasure or pain depending upon the placement of Rahu.

  1. Desire and Illusions: I have called the Rahu dasha “A palace of illusions”. Rahu indicates your goal in this life and a desire hidden deep at a soul level. Rahu Mahadasha activates this desire and a person discovers his passion, it could be money, power, fame or even knowledge. Whatever he desires, during Rahu period the breathless chase for that goal would start and everything else would become secondary. One may keep chasing one thing after the other, in a possessed manner, throughout the Rahu dasha, and never be satiated no matter what.

  1. Rebellion: A rebellious streak enters a person. Just like Rahu, he no longer wants to abide by the laws of the “authority” and is often on the path to conflict with the authority. Most people who voluntarily break the laws and try to get away with it, are often under the influence of Rahu. I always pity those parents whose children are running a Rahu period in their teenage, Rahu rebellion mixed with raging hormones can make one a “Rebel without a cause” and they would have a revolution every day at their house.

 

  1. Breaking the rules: One is often temped to break the rules and norms and use immoral and even illegal means to fulfill his desires. One goes on breaking the taboos, right from extra marital affairs, to interracial sex, to use of drugs and alcohol, to eating meat. People may end up marrying someone out of their caste, religion, nationality, and even race. There is only one rule that prevails in a Rahu period: Break the rules.

  1. Mental health issues: A poor moon in the chart, especially the combination of Moon + Rahu indicates depression and mental health issues, this gets intensified during Rahu period. Rahu passions take over and a man’s discernment is often thrown out of the window. The illusions that one sees can range from passionate pursuit for imaginary riches to obsession with a person of opposite sex, to seeing ghosts and spirits, all these can be real or imaginary, mostly imaginary. One should be very careful of mental health, especially during Rahu-Moon period.

  1. Fascination with the dark side: I have seen people become fascinated with the dark sides of things, right from corruption in the financial world, to unethical power plays in politics, to occult in the spiritual world. Everything that is dark and dangerous has a fascination. Even the spiritually inclined people start dabbling with the dark side of nature using practices like Tantra, Hathyoga, Aghora and other left hand paths.

  1. Marriage: Marriage. For the record, the planet of marriage is NOT Venus or Jupiter, the planet of marriage is Rahu. Especially modern marriages which are full of desires, illusions and passion but often end in tragedy and disillusion, are ruled by Rahu. Any period of Rahu is conducive for marriages. 70% of marriages happen in a Rahu period and 90% of divorces happen in a Ketu period.

 

  1. Foreign element: I have almost always seen a foreign element enter a person’s life and there is a fascination with everything foreign in the Rahu period. People often travel far and wide and go the foreign lands during Rahu period especially during Rahu-Mercury, Rahu-Venus and Rahu-Moon.

 

  1. Weight loss: If you want to lose weight, no period like Rahu period. May be it has something to do with Rahu being an insatiable head who can eat all that he wants, but will never be fed. I mostly see skinny people with Rahu in the first house, they are the tall lanky types most of the times. Normally people don’t put on weight in Rahu period. Funny part, I have almost always seen the same people trying to lose weight in the subsequent Jupiter Mahadasha.

  1. Disillusion: Rahu period normally ends in disillusion for most of the people. Once the Rahu “movie” is over, they realize that there was no hero, no villain, nothing, just a few lights dancing on a screen. It was all smokes and mirrors. You realize that all the time you have been chasing illusions. Almost always a person feels dejected and disillusioned at the end of Rahu period. However, the good part is that during Jupiter period one gets a chance to redeem himself and become wise after the wild goose chase of Rahu.

 

RAHU PERIOD CHART:

Period Years Months Days
Rahu-Rahu 2 8 12
Rahu-Jupiter 2 4 24
Rahu-Saturn 2 10 6
Rahu-Mercury 2 6 18
Rahu-Ketu 1 0 18
Rahu-Venus 3 0 0
Rahu-Sun 0 10 24
Rahu-Moon 1 6 0
Rahu-Mars 1 0 18

 

Rahu Mahadasha is a long one and often takes it time to show its results. Unlike Ketu who starts hammering from the word go, Rahu is patient, it sits and waits for the right opportunity and then strikes with passion, like a COILED SNAKE. Its results are slow in the making but they pop up all of a sudden. And this happens in almost every sub period.

Let’s examine its activities in all the sub periods:

  1. Rahu-Rahu Period: Rebellion, Illusion, passion-Disappointment: I often joke with my clients that Rahu dasha especially with an unfavorable Rahu, can be summed up in the lyrics of hit song of 90s, “Chain ik pal nahi-aur koi hal nahi” (meaning I don’t have peace for a moment and there is no solution to this.)  Restlessness is the hallmark of Rahu. This is the time when a man is under absolute influence of Rahu and becomes “Rahu Roop”. He discovers a new passion, often as a result of some denial and frustration from system and he rebels against the status quo, and this starts the wild Rahu chase. Rahu brings a radical change in the person’s mindset and environment. I have a friend with Mars in 1st and Rahu in 2nd house (lucky guy). During his Mars Mahadasha, he was a patriot of the first order. His eyes would moisten when the national anthem was played. He would pay his taxes and then a little more to help the government and people of this great nation. One year into Rahu period and he was grossly upset about the “loot in the name of taxes” by the “useless incompetent government” of this “horribly corrupt nation”. I smiled at his statement and quipped, that’s it wasn’t him but Rahu talking. Rahu in the 2nd made him obsessed with money, something that he never really cared for in the past, but now that Rahu was active, money was the center of his universe. He was lucky to have Rahu in the 2nd, Rahu in a tough house like 8th can start a horror movie where a man can be scared, restless uneasy and depressed.

 

However, Rahu-Rahu period is often marked by a blind breathless chase that often ends in a disappointment. It could be anything from failing in an exam for which one prepared for years or losing on a business that one had worked for tirelessly. Rahu-Rahu often ends in a disappointment. The good part is that Jupiter comes next to heal the wounds and give the much needed lucky breaks.

 

 

  1. Rahu-Jupiter: Wise and restless: This is normally a contradiction of a period but more often than not, it is a good time for the native. While Rahu keeps on with the breathless chase, Jupiter brings the much needed good luck, joviality, and expansion.

 

Even people with an unfavorable Rahu find this period to be a period of relief as Jupiter brings the badly needed balance to Rahu’s restless energy. A man is not a wild passionate animal as he was in a Rahu-Rahu period. He becomes mature, wiser and comparatively rational individual. However, often this luck and wisdom is used in order to push the Rahu agenda further. This can also prove to be a period of marriage as Rahu and Jupiter together bring strong chances of marriage, especially for females.

  1. Rahu-Saturn: The rebel meets the jailor: The Law Maker Vs. The Law Breaker: This period of these two malefics can be a period of frustration and limitations. Saturn, the Boss of Kaliyuga is here to teach a lesson to the rebellious Rahu. While Rahu wants everything “right now” and wants to break every rule in the book. Saturn shoves his rule book down the throat of Rahu and delays everything as everything in a slow Saturn manner.

 

Often one has to pay for excesses done during Rahu-Rahu and Rahu-Jupiter period as Judge Shani pronounces his sentence. Saturn locks up the rebellious Rahu in the jail of social norms.

Often people go to jail/get punished during this period for frauds and excesses done during Rahu-Rahu and Rahu-Jupiter. Saturn will teach the native that rules have to be followed. Rahu the rebel feels frustrated during this time as he does not have patience to wait, while Saturn is here to give him a lesson in patience. It would do well for a person to keep patience and follow his spiritual remedies. Even when Rahu is favorable in the chart, this is not a happy time for most people.

 

 

  1. Rahu-Mercury: Dangerous minds: Scheming and Scamming: Finally, the rebel Rahu comes out of the Jail of Jailor Saturn and outside stands his best friend Mercury to welcome him with open arms, and a scheme. They have a lot to do, really. Rahu has all that pent up passion and frustration which and he is dying for some action. Mercury brings him the necessary intellectual horsepower to pull up a fast one, which these two are champions of. Often they are out to scheme and scam the world and this is what Rahu loves. This is often a time of intelligent breakthroughs, creativity, and yes scams.

 

However, an unfavorable Rahu can wreak havoc, can scare the person out of his wits and can dumb him down due to sheer horror that he presents through the mind. This is one period in which the position of Rahu and his relation with Mercury has to be considered in detail before reaching any conclusion.

  1. Rahu-Ketu period: The Train Wreck: This is an easy one. This is one of the toughest periods anyone can go through in life. This has been called the period of “Karmic Retribution” (using the words of my favourite astrologer Prash Trivedi) and it is believed that free will of a person is at its minimum during this period and the hand of destiny takes over. There is only one guarantee, whatever one has planned will not happen. Even the best laid plans backfire.  Normally the fall out is akin to a train wreck, like a train that has been derailed, a man goes differently than what he had planned and is dragged off the comfort and security of his train tracks and falls into rough and tumble of something else.  This period marks some kind of a completion as Rahu and Ketu come together to form one body. This is normally seen to put the man on the path of his destiny, albeit in a typical brutal Ketu manner. It is better to lie low and let the storm pass over, most importantly, to cooperate with the inevitable.

  1. Rahu-Venus: Gangster and his Moll: LOVE SEX AND SCANDALS: Well this is one period of indulgence. Rahu loves to be with Shukra, both like each other and intensify their energies put together. Breaking the taboos and taking luxury to the extreme level where it often crosses into the boundary of sin.  This is the time when even the most prudish of people are found at brothels, the most sober of men start drink directly from the bottle, the most loyal spouses get into extra-marital affairs and apparently normal people take to taboo breaking activities. If you are booking your tickets for Thailand or Vegas, chances are that you are undergoing a Rahu-Venus period. Most scandals, especially the sexual types happen during this period. I HAVE SEEN MEN BEING ACCUSED OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND GET INTO SCANDALS AND LEGAL TROUBLES DURING THIS TIME.   Be very patient and keep doing your spiritual remedies, praying to Mother Divine would be especially helpful, as both Venus and Rahu are two hands of the Mother.

 

Often people looking to get married (especially men) get married during this period as these two together boost a person’s chances to get sexual union, and if Venus is in a good and strong position one can get a a good match.

 

  1. Rahu-Sun: Egomania: The King can do no wrong: Oh boy does this one burn bright. Contrary to the commonly held belief, Rahu does not hate the Sun, it loves Sun, (it hates Moon though, and we will come to that). Sun is Rahu’s role model and he wants to become Sun. When Rahu’s obsessive self-righteous streak meets with the royal, arrogant, and self-righteous attitude of sun, you have a bonafide jerk, as ego is boosted to the maximum. When King and Rebel join forces, you have a dictatorship at hand. One feels that he is entitled to everything he desires and then some more. As the individual becomes more arrogant and conceit, this self-righteous egomania leads to many broken relationships, bad blood, enmity, and frequent troubles with authority (the native feels that he is the most supreme authority of all and he can never be wrong). While Ketu-Sun breaks the ego, Rahu-Sun boosts it and makes way for a downfall of a person as he is about to hit one of the most dangerous period of all, Rahu-Moon.

  1. Rahu Moon: The horror movie: Haunting, fear, and depression: If anything scares me after Ketu-Venus, it is this period of Rahu-Moon. After all the egomania in Rahu-Sun, the Rahu-Moon period is the ultimate downfall for a person. This is the time when all the foolishness done in Rahu-Venus and Rahu-Sun comes to haunt a person. Rahu hates Moon with a menacing vengeance and Moon, the softest of all planets which is the Karaka of mind is scared to death by Rahu.

 

I have seen depression in most people with a Moon + Rahu combination. Funny thing about this period is that there is almost no actual damage, however, the mental torture and fear is enough to put the toughest of men under depression. Maybe, because Rahu has no hands, it does not do much damage in the real world. However, Rahu scares the and fearful Moon to madness. Most of the mad people in the world have a weak moon often impacted by Rahu (e.g. Fredric Nietzsche had a debilitated Moon sitting with Rahu) this philosophical genius ultimately lost his mind and became mad.

 

This is the period when one should try to maintain his sanity and not be afraid. This is the time of downfall and disillusion and a person often wonders why did he do all that he did. He realizes the futility of all obsession and passion and this is the lowest point in the Rahu period. Taking refuge of Shiva and Kaali would be the best idea during this time. Most importantly, one should remind himself that 80% of what he fears is not going to materialize. And he would regain his courage in the Rahu-Mars period.

  1. Rahu Mars: The Battlefield: Fight Fury and Redemption: God is kind, and that’s the reason he always puts a redemptive period at the end of every difficult Mahadahsa. Saturn ends with Jupiter, when one rises boundaries, shakes off depression, discovers himself and becomes positive. Ketu Mahadasha ends with Mercury when one regains his “head” and starts planning for the future. And finally Rahu Mahadasha ends with Mars, when one regains confidence and courage.

Rahu-Moon often breaks a person mentally and he becomes a mass of scared, quivering flesh. Rahu-Mars brings confidence and fire back in the native and he is able to fight his way back to redemption. Using this fire and fury he is able to cut out all the foolishness that he did, route the enemies away, fight his fears, and remove the obstacles in his path. He is disillusioned now by all that Rahu had promised, the palace of illusion has disappeared and he stands in middle of a battlefield with a sword in his hand.

 

Praying to Lord Hanuman and Mother Durga/Kali would do really well during this period and would help a person channelize the energies of this fire towards higher goals and fight a good fight.

 

So while a well placed Rahu may give great riches and success, it normally ends in disillusion. An unfavorable Rahu may lead to difficulties and horrors, but in the end there is a feeling of emptiness and redemption.

Once the native is able to dispel the illusions of Rahu and make way for a happy go lucky Jupiter period, which one gets as a reward for tolerating his Rahu period.

Once the Jupiter period starts, wisdom is regained, and by the Grace of Guru, the illusions and restlessness is removed and one attains positivity and peace. Behind illusion of Rahu, the child of Maya, resides the great Truth that once can see through the grace of Guru.

Jai Guru Dev.

    1. Your analysis and insights are very detailed,accurate and unique.
      Keep up the great work and your explorations of astrology

    2. Ones should NEVER let anyone else decide on his behalf. Trust your heart and take the responsibility on your own shoulders. Indian parents are not infallible. The maximum number of divorce cases that I see belong to hindu arranged marriage. Love marriages are much better. LISTEN TO YOUR HEART NOT YOUR PARENTS.

      1. As per your observations I am in last phase of Rahu (Rahu-Mars) which is schedule to end in 19th February 2019. But as per your analysis the phase should be quite redeeming. But last 2 months have been horrible, people have cheated me of my money , my work has been stopped and I am facing a lot of difficulties in doing a simple work , I am facing a lot of humiliations , friends are turning foe I am really worried about it, because Jupiter will start from 20th February 2019. is it cleansing process , am I getting rid of bad people who may do more harm in future?
        I am Maanglik and have Kaal Sarp dosh

  3. I have passed Rahu Mahadasha, in my case it is placed in the 10th house, however, the kind of problems i have faced, it seems are above my birth chart, i suffered from deep mental anguish and pain and unnecessary demeaning, now being in my Jupiter Mahadasha(now in its third year) with shani dhaiya alongside what is the best possible thing which i can expect and do so that I am able to firmly stand for myself and move above whatever scar life has given to me.

    I have rahu+ moon in my 2nd house of Virgo and going through Rahu Mahadasha. I already have issues with my family(not my parents). Can you guide me a path to attain my goals. Everyone wish to be rich and happy. So do I.
    Thank you

    1. Channel desires and energy in such a way that it does not hurt your family members’ emotions & life. You can channelize the energy outside the home where you can get gains. One of my family members is going through Rahu Mahadasha and Rahu Antardasha. I am in literal hell right now living life with that person. I feel terrible. Person is full of illusions/doubts/hatred/cloud minded. Person thinks others are doing something behind their back which is not true. The person uses others’ weaknesses and tries to get their desires met. Literally acting like a Hobgoblin (my version of describing Rahu). I wish Saturn comes into their life and show the reality.

  6. Im going through rahu enterdasha n venus mahadasha.rahu in my first house.this caused divorce n lots of mental tension .will this ease out after 2o montbhs.my dob is 28feb1959.time of birth is 7.45mp.place Multan pakistan

    1. thank you for your kind words. The Shani dasha article is in the making. God willing, will publish it soon. Pray for me.

      1. That would be lovely .Knowing what you feel for Guru and Shani MD and period
        Plus it would be awesome if you could share your view point about marriages under RAhu MD lasting or that too are illusions and seem like illusion after RAhu MD ends.

        Wonderful work .

        I am not going to take up astrology as a profession as it’s a wonderfully vast science takes years of study and research understanding but I do deeply respect astrologers knowledge .. especially like yours .

        Thank you
        regards
        Looking forward to more articles

    1. Rahu moon is the toughest for almost everyone. Rahu Mars is normally a comeback. I would have to look at your chart before i can say anything further.

      in order to book a slot please contact my assistant on the given number. 919564547458 (Phone + whatsapp)

    1. Thank you Shishir. Bless you. I am saddened and disappointed by the lack of integrity shown by a fellow astrologer. Will take it up with qora moderation.

  14. Every word given in this article on Rahu has come true in my case.

    From being so Confident & clear before Rahu dasha, to being Confident & foolish in Rahu, to untold chase, misery and sufferings to the point of bad reputation in company I worked for years to point of job loss. Indeed its like a picture and futility of all efforts i had put. Indeed it showed me more about myself than what I had earlier known of myself.
    Sharanam !!

  15. Hello sir, it is very useful information that you shared with us, Thank you so much for it.
    I have rahu, sat, mar, jup in my 8th house and my husband has only rahu in 8th house. is it good or bad for us.

  16. Deep article covering all aspect of positive negative aspect of Rahu.As per my personal experience praying lord Shiva automatically strengthens Rahu and reduces its ill effects.
    Would like to know if Rahu in 2nd house aquarius good ?and wat are the effects of rahu in 2nd house in both D1 and D9 chart

  17. I have one question in my mind if a person commits a crime like adultery due to influence of Rahu he will still be held accountable for the crime right ?

    1. We can’t blame planets. They deiver what you deserve. The idea is to know the difference between right and wrong and avoid temptation for wrong.

  18. Rahu in Taurus in 12th house.rahu period running..full of ups and downs..how is Rahu in 12th? Is going to foreign country helpful for career?
    Thanks & regards.

    1. Hi Vinod, don’t misunderstand me. But its only due to our actions, that people run away, we lose opportunities. Try your best to be humble with people. Do not misuse their weakness. I have seen Rahu Maha & Rahu Antardasha people immediately recognizing other person’s weakness and using it for their gains. In an amplified manner. People recognize this and move away.
      Main thing to understand is, its all going on in your mind. Try to control and channelize it. That WILL help. Be humble, worship higher power/god of your liking. Meditate for an hour or 2. Before taking any action in every minute, think 4-5 times if that will hurt other people, is it unlawful/irrational/illicit. If so, do not do that action. Trust me, all this will help.

  22. I have Rahu and Sun conjunction in 8th in Gemini, aspected by Jupiter in 12th (Trikona). Is there any reason for worry? I am willing to consult formally and will send you my details. Please let me know.

  23. Great knowledge with sharp accuracy, personally being experienced this : Rahu-Moon mind shaking phase.
    I’m preparing for IAS, 2019 being my 1st attempt need your insight –

  24. Very well written article, covered rahu’s Impact very well. I read somewhere that Rahu and ketu are change agents trying to bring about the change our souls want to attain, so however painful accept the change and hope for the best. It’s easier said than done!
    I am currently in Rahu-moon and have been feeling the effects as Rahu is in 4th house and moon on 6th. I am very positive person and have never felt depressed but now it’s a different story, I am chanting “aum namah sivayah” and it’s helping,
    But my family life is a mess for the last 4-5 years, husbands been threatening to leave as this point I have given up whatever happens happens for the good.
    I have karkataka lagna, Saturn in 1st, Venus in 9th, Sun+Jupiter+Mercury+Ketu in 10th, Rahu in 4th, moon in6th and mars in 12th house.
    Am I definitely headed for a divorce please advise. Thanks in advance ??

    1. Sorry to hear about your plight. Rahu-moon is a pain but Rahu Mars often brings redemption.

      To book a consultation, please contact 9564547458 would try my best to help you.

  25. Sir, your literary skills are at par, if not surpass, your divine portfolio. Am ‘binge-reading’ your website, if there is such a word! Apart from Ketu, Rahu and the grand daddy, Saturn, would you shed some light on Mars, if time permits in future? I have a debilitated Mars in 2nd and looking back, i can confidently say some of the most excruciating periods were experienced during Moon-Mars and Mars-Rahu. But I could be an outlier too ☺️.

    Maybe my karma will lead me towards actually speaking with you some day, but please continue to show us the light in these dark times, O Child of Saturn!

    1. Oh yes can relate to you very much. although not a debilitated Mars or Moon but still Moon – Mars and Mars mahadasha did not do any wonders for me. In fact, there were different kinds of sufferings

  26. Sir,
    My date of birth and time was 09-08-1975 and 6.21 pm. I am in Rahul mahadasa Venus antardasa. Your article is very exhaustive. I understood all the pains I went during this period because of your article. I want to know what is in store for the remaining period of Dasha. Please tell me how could I know about this

      1. Sir,
        I have never read such good analysis earlier.
        I am in Rahu mars phase now. Each day m discovering something new. But still the period is not good. I have been a broke as hell. My dasha will end in Dec 2019. I haven’t been married yet and waiting for someone I knew. Can it possibly happen in this period. Thank you for your insight.

  27. I’m currently going through Rahu MD Mars AD. I’m jobless for last 2 years. My dad almost hit financial bankruptcy. I’m heading towards lunacy. I don’t do alcohol or cigarettes but almost I feel wasted throughout the day. My Jupiter is in 10th and I’m Capricorn ascendant. How will my Jupiter mahadasha turn out to be?! Help!

  28. My self shridevi. DOB 12/6/19990,
    IM FACING LAST 3YEARS OF RAHU DASHA, ALREADY LOST 2 BABIES, WIL I ABLE TO HAVE BABY. PLEASS HELP ME

  29. Dope. Thumbs Up. Was quite on cue. (Tula Lagna)
    Rahu (18y)
    From 13y5m to 31y5m
    Just entered the Rahu-Mars period. It’s been glorious.

  30. such a thorough and thoughtful analysis on Rahu, great experience. Thank you for it.

    I have Rahu Mahadasha and in Rahu-Sun period, changing on 18-01-2019 ~ 18:50. As per my Birth chart Rahu is in 7th Position along with Tula. How do I see the next 2.6 years of period from now.

  31. Hello Sir !

    Very nice article, it explains the experience one might face really well. I am currently under Rahu -Moon and Rahu_mars will start in Apr 2019. For me Rahu MD has been extremely bad, my Rahu is in 10th (Capricorn) with Sun and Mercury. Moon in 5th (leo), mars in Ist (Aries), Saturn in 2nd ( Taurus) and Venus in 11th( Aquarius). I am an Aries Ascendant. 6 months prior to Rahu MD, I lost my job, my Mom became ill and my life became hell onwards. I could not secure a job for next many many years due to many factors including mom being ill, and I finally I lost my mom after 10 years, had to go to higher education in order to get a job. The only positive outcome is I gained some education, but at the cost of losing everything else in life. At present, I feel depression and have left with no energies at all.

  32. Rahu in 10th house Sagittarius, left education and chasing dreams in music field, 7th year of rahu dasa. Will be 38 by the time rahu dasa gets over. Saturn in 11th house. Is this a chase of illusion? Ketu and mars together. Environment of friends and far from relatives but enjoy support of both friends and relatives.

  33. Very good Article. I have just finished my rahu- moon and it completely shook me mentally and health wise. Your explanation is remarkable Sir. Please write on Jupiter Mahadasha also. Will be waiting to read it.

  34. Hello Sir,
    Well written & easily explained!!!
    Does RAHU & SUN together in any house & in any lagna or navamsa chart creates PITRA DOSH?
    Does PITRA DOSH EXIST?
    Thanks & Regards

  35. I’m going through Rahu Mahadasha + Ashtam Shani + Saturn Return + Rahu’s transit through the 1st House. Fun, right? 😀

  36. Rahu is responsible for creating Pitra Dosh? Does Pitra Dosh exist in reality or it is just a fake terror other astrologers create for money from their clients?

  45. Namaste. Greetings! My dob is 23-09-86 at 18:55. I’m in Rahu-Sun phase, got a job last year but despite being appointed as a professor, boss doesn’t let me teach and makes me sort out awful responsibilities. I’m sick & tired of this job and gradually dying inside. Kindly tell me how soon can i get rid of this job? That’s my life goal, to get rid of this job and teach students. Please mention a date. Let me countdown. Thanks in advance

  46. Sir,
    I have never read such good analysis earlier.
    I am in Rahu mars shani phase now. Each day m discovering something new. But still the period is not good. I have been a broke as hell. My dasha will end in Dec 2019. I haven’t been married yet and waiting for someone I knew. Can it possibly happen in this period. Thank you for your insight.

  47. What are the results of rahu in 3 house in Leo for gemini Ascendant?
    As sun is positioned in 1 house with mercury?

  48. Hi Sir,
    My Rahu is in 9th house with Venus and Uranium. And I have rahu dasha going on which ends this year. Could you please tell me more about the effects of this?

  49. What does Rahu moon conjunction in 6th house in D9 chart signify? I’m currently running my rahu-Ketu Dasha. I’m about to get married

  50. Sir, My name is Umesan, born on 17.09.1962 at 12.05 AM (Not very clear about the time) at Palakkad in Kerala. I work in New Delhi, India since 1985. I am going through the Rahu Mahadasha since 2009 and now i have entered the Ketu Antardasha. I had lots of problem especially after 2014. May I request you to kindly advice me as to what all steps should i take care to reduce the anger of Rahu/Ketu.. I will be extremely obliged to receive your guidance. With best regards,

  51. Sir, I am in Rahu- Moon now. Some strange neurological disease has overcome me, although it also definitely feels like a spiritual opening. My mercury antardasha was probably the worst and best period for me. I got a spiritual awakening and many life problems got sorted. Then some trouble came in half of Venus AD. The rest half of venus AD and sun AD was the best period of my life so far. In moon though, I have fallen sick badly, as if possessed by an extra-dimensional entity. It began when I started doing intense meditation and sadhana of Durga/Vishnu. 3 months I am having severe symptoms of some neurological disorder which has made my daily life really difficult. Any ideas, Sir?

  52. I read this article as well as the “Understanding Rahu” article. So, my understanding is that Rahu is the reason for which we are born. The Bhrigu Bindu (if you believe in it), the Destiny point as they say is also calculated from Rahu and moon. It’s a Karmic planet and as you said for ketu that we should just let go and flow like water with Ketu, then what mindset should we have for Rahu period? We know that all what we may look for will disappoint our thinking as the Rahu period ends, then still should we keep doing and running after those things and activities bcoz the Karmic position wants us to? When we know that the activities and things related to Rahu’s sign and position which we are dying to have, is all illusion, then what should we do? Should we run away from it? But will that not be a disrespect to the karma which left unfinished and we just do in this world? What should be our attitude in Rahu period when we know both the facts that 1. the Karmic position requires us to undergo this as well as the conflicting fact that 2. It’s all an illusion, it’ll disappoint you at the end of the period even if you get what u want. How to harmonize both the facts? Please guide.

  53. I am halfway through Rahu – Moon phase with moon in 12th house. And yeah, this is literally horrible period. Constant headache, unknown fear & Isolation. Still half way to go. Waiting for Rahu Mars dasha. Hoping good results considering mars in vipareet raj yoga. Let me & others have courage to pass through this tough time.

    1. Pray to Shiva and Maa Kali. And remember most of what you are afraid of will not come true. Soon you will make a comeback. Keep the faith.

  54. Excellent article. I’m running through Rahu period for the last 15 years. I cant agree more with the illusion that Rahu creates. I have rahu in rohini (ruled by Moon). Though I have been earning good during Rahu period, the amount illusion, mental depression and instability in mind, people around me have no idea, what’s going on in my mind.

    Thanks a lot for a wonderful article on RAHU.

    1. I agree. Make sure you don’t hurt or harm others with Rahu’s energy (Maha or Antar dasha). Do one bad thing, Saturn will take care of you. FOR SURE! So better to channelize Rahu’s energy in right/positive direction in Rahu Maha and Antardasha. It will help you achieve unimaginable heights. But if you miss to do it, Rahu will start driving you to all the desires which may take you in irrational/illicit/unlawful ways.

  55. Have gone to your Rahu Mahadasha article…
    Seems to be promising after 18 years of constant failure,fear,disrespect,disease for so many year.I will gain confidence and good life in Guru Mahadasha…..Rahu-moon will start in coming days…Don’t know how to tackle this life…

  56. Currently having Jupiter antradasha in Rahu since Dec 18. Did very well during Rahu – Rahu and beginning of Jup – Rahu than all of sudden lost job when I was expecting a promotion and better things in life. Can not really understand this, my Rahu period during Moon mahadasha was also very hard. Have never got good job opportunities in life even though so being highly educated and with pleasing personality.
    I have Saturn and rahu together in Seven House Pisces, Katu, Mercury and Jupiter in first house Virgo. Sun in second house libra and Mars in twelfth house Leo.

    Feeling restless during Jup – Rahu period with difficult Sat – Rahu to follow. Though I have now learnt to be more patient and accepting of circumstances. Any suggestions to get some success ??

  57. Thank you for summarising the effects of antardashas in Rahu mahadasha. Greatly helpful.

    To quote from the excerpt, ‘This period marks some kind of a completion as Rahu and Ketu come together to form one body. This is normally seen to put the man on the path of his destiny, albeit in a typical brutal Ketu manner.’ I agree with this as I have personally experienced changes in my career imposed on me, and also its effects in my personal life .

    However I wonder, if in Rahu-Ketu period, i.e. before it ends, some physical changes are inevitable – i.e. one will physically relocate because of job change, or due to other circumstances due to planetary placement like the Venus? Consequently, in Rahu-Venus period there is relocation? Would this be inevitable? Also, would this be good for the individual after all, if Rahu-Ketu period is about completion and putting the person to its path of destiny? Only the process is brutal.

    I would be greatful to get any feedback to my questions above, especially about the Ketu and Venus sub dasha effects in physical terms that may happen due to the effects of ‘completion’ that takes place in Rahu-Ketu period. Thanking you in advance.

    1. Rahu Ketu brings a flood of changes in a man’s life. Can be an year of turbulence and changes. however, one should wait for it to get over, once you get in Rahu-Venus or Ketu-Jupiter, both would be descent periods.

  58. Sir,

    It is said that Rahu- mars is a turbulent, violent phase since it’s the last phase of Rahu Mahadasha.

    Like Ketu gives a final blow before leaving, does Rahu do the same? Or is it a relief compared to the horror show in Rahu- moon period- for a Scorpio ascendant native.

    1. A person gains ability to fight back and gets courage some sort of violent events may take place, some operation or accidents can happen. However, it is way better than Rahu-Moon

  59. Excellent article , since few day’s I am googeling about rahu mahasabha and it’s antardasha’s , I am going through the same and currently in Rahu mahadasha having sun antar dasha , struggling with inner peace and have recently unexpectedly lost job , the more painful is I’ve cracked so many interviews and got offer from one/two out of them but they cancelled my candidature due to unexpected reasons. The worst I am facing now having quarrel with family members without any reasons , felt like more egoist and arrogant to others but inspite of knowing all these I have no control on my self during such moments.The worst is still to come as per the study, moon under rahu mahadasha. I have Rahu in the 11the house, Mars in 12th, sun in 5th with ketu, Saturn in 9th, moon mercury is in 6th and Jupiter in 2nd. Have started shiv aradhna . Can you please suggest does degree of a planet matters ? I have rahu with 19 degree and Saturn with 2 degree does that matters ?

    Great article admin, it help the victims to understand and somehow they may get directions to balance such worst period .

  60. Dear Sir,

    It is nice to see your services to mankind through practical astrology and of course you accumulate tons of good Karma.
    If RAHU in Virgo ascendant is in 11th House, shall one invest in equities or share market. As majority of astrologers suggest not to invest in equities to me.

  61. My son has Rahu placed in 5th house in Gemini. He is having issue in higher study… Not cleared engineering 1st year .. Rahu dash moon antardasha started April 19. Hope he will complete his study.

  62. Dear Sir,

    Excellent work for uplifting people out of precarious situations and saving people from thugs of astrology. Salute to you.

    Kindly guide the investment is fine in Mutual funds or direct equity for people with 11th house Rahu in Virgo lagna.
    With Best Regards & Thanks
    Rajat Gupta

  63. Sh.Vijaya kumar, wonderful way of portrayal of this complex subject. How is the period of Rahu antardasha in Venus mahadasha..last 18 months period as had to quit my job in this period…still looking for one….this period will end around aug-sept next year

  64. My birth date is 20-07-1977. Time is 8:35 pm. Presently under Mahadasha Rahu- Moon Antardasha. Rahu in 8th house
    Mahadasha results so far were as predicted in the article. Really worried about the moon antardasha. Plz advice

  65. Sir,
    I read your articles regularly. I want you to write on different Lagna and their Life partner or which rashi will be suitable for them for marriage. Specially I am a person of Makar Lagana so will karka rashi will be suitable for me for marriage. I am having the same lagna which you have . You have mentioned that you are also a person of makar lagna .Please guide.

  66. Sir,
    Very true about your analysis. I finished the Rahu Maha Dasha a couple of days back which started in 2001. So many things are true.One never achieves true happiness during this dasha. It is almost a smoke screen mostly whether marriage or career. An another important thing I suddenly realise is almost the fear in me during the rahu dasha has began to disappear though it is too early to say. But I could feel that weight crushing me for some reason. That seems to have gone and I feel happy most times accepting life as it is.I seem to have lost my anger which ironically used to be quite a bit during the rahu dasha. I feel happy for some reason though nothing in particular good has happened but still a significant mood change.I used to have this mood during Rahu dasha hoping bad things for my enemies but yesterday strangely I was telling myself to forgive all those people who may have done wrong to me through some manner or the other.I realised bad things happen in life and one has to take it in a good stride.Anyways what happens in the future is only in god’s hands and we are mere pawns in the game.Strangely I came across your website a couple of days before my Rahu Dasha was ending.Wish I came here earlier so that I could have negated a few things.But who knows how much control we have over certain things. Nice article anyways and will keep visiting your website for more knowledge.

    1. thank you for sharing your experience. I am happy for you. May Jupiter bring you blessings that you need. Enjoy your life now and please do keep reading and commenting.

  67. Sir Admin,
    I my self Abhishek Wankhede I had send you a mail on 1st September 2019 To write on different lagan and their life partner and specially for Makar Lagana person that will Karka rashi will be suitable for him for marriage but there is no reply .

    1. Dear Abhishek,

      LISTEN TO YOUR HEART. What if someone gave you a wrong chart? first meet the person and if you like her then look at the chart.

      Still if you want, ENTIRE HOROSOCOPE has to be matched dont go blindly by some rasi or lagna. It is a complete art and science which takes years of learning and expertise.
