Things you should do in a Rahu Mahadasha:

Rahu, the planet of Maya is one of the most difficult planets to handle, and for various reasons.

Rahu being the severed head of a demon, has insatiable hunger and is always greedy and unsatisfied. Being the Mahadasha Lord, he rubs his nature over the native and the native starts to look, feel, act and behave like Rahu. I am yet to find a client undergoing Rahu period who is not chasing something with desperation. Often a common dialogue is “I deserver much more but I don’t get what I deserve”.

Despite telling them various times, that there are people who are much more qualified and able than them, who are at a lower position, they would always compare themselves with someone of lesser ability who has more. They often chase on illusion after the other, and ultimately this quest ends in a breathless crash.

I have written a few times about how to handle the energies of Rahu, but one of them requested me to write this article, so that they have a ready reckoner. So, here we go:

  • Stay Focused: Whatever you do, do not let your guard down. If there is an important thing that needs to be done, do it with all focus and concentration. Rahu is the planet of both illusions and focus. While he would reward the focused man, he would punish the confused one. As long as you keep your goals clear and remain focused, you would do well, but the moment you relax, Rahu will jump like a snake and bite you in the face.
Norman Vincent Peale quote: Plan your work - work your plan. Lack of  system...
  • Plan the work and work the plan: Rahu is a go-getter. He has to be continuously engaged in one or the other quest. His energies are restless and never allow you to sit down and relax. So it is better to put them to good use. Rahu is a planner, plotter, and hustler. Better put these energies to a good use. Choose a worthy goal and go after it, with all the Rahu intensity. No planet can make you succeed with such single-minded focus. But ensure that you have a proper plan in place and execute it with all the Rahu intensity and focus.
Never ever compare yourself to others! | by Nishant Jogad | Medium
  • NEVER COMPARE: This has to be put in all caps. You can compare yourself with a billionaire and be miserable for the rest of your life, or at least during the Rahu Mahadasha. Comparison is Rahu’s best weapon, anyone who is happy and content, can be ruined in a few minutes of Instagram, Facebook, or LinkedIn search. Where everyone has a perfect 5-star life, great families, and run the world as CEOs. Let me tell you most of that is rubbish. People who go to 5-stars regularly don’t put it on Instagram. Happy families usually don’t exist on Facebook, and most of the “CEOs” on LinkedIn are struggling to get a reasonable job, at most they might be running dad’s company. However, if you find out that a boy who studied with you in class X has become CXO of some big company (for real), don’t resent him, don’t compare yourself with him, instead be happy for him. This would bring you happiness and contentment. You will get what Karma has determined for you, work hard towards your goals, and not towards defeating someone else. If you have to compare, compare yourself with those who are struggling despite being talented. That would make you feel more grateful.
Erwin W. Lutzer Quote: “Temptation is not a sin; it is a call to battle.”
  • Say no to temptations: This is particularly true during Rahu-Venus and Rahu-Mercury. There would be temptations that would come your way. Right from a possibility of pulling off a scam, to having an illicit affair. Rahu has a habit of enticing you into the dark temptations and then once you enter, he will close the door behind you and start the torture. The quick buck you wanted to make in share market will make you lose millions in the end. That pretty lady who flirted with you, can put harassment allegation against you and take you job. A little control on animal instincts will go a long way in saving you from danger.
Spike Milligan Quote: “Its all in the mind, you know.”
  • Remember: Most of your problems are in your mind: Rahu is the planet of psychology, and most of his games are mental. He will scare the living daylights out of you, or would make you feel emotions that can put you in asylum, while the thing that you were so afraid of does not really exist. You need to remember this particularly during Rahu – Moon period. I have used example of horror movie for this period. It is just sound and light but can give a person heart attack. Similarly, Rahu – Moon is also a drama that goes on in your mind. Whatever you do, keep yourself on firm ground and keep reminding yourself that this is all in the mind.
Winston Churchill quote: I'm too busy. I have no time for worry.
  • Stay busy: Empty mind is a devil’s workshop, they say. And this is true, particularly in the Rahu period. Having a packed schedule without much idle time will help you release the intense Rahu energy in a positive manner. Most of the times, whenever you sit idle, “horror movie” would start in your mind. Don’t let the devil sit idle, keep it busy, and the best way to do it is to stay busy yourself. Remember what Churchill said at the peak of the world war, when he was running 18-hour days “I am too busy. I have no time for worry.” This attitude will keep the disturbing energies of Rahu Mahadasha channelised and will keep you sane. I am yet to see a very busy man who is depressed, I can tell this from my personal experience.
When you count your blessings, you realize you're actually doing just fine.  #powerofpositivity #pos… | Blessed quotes, Thank you quotes gratitude,  Gratitude quotes
  • Count your blessings:  This is my personal favorite remedy. This kept me going through my life, and it will come very hand to anyone undergoing Rahu Mahadasha as well. The best way of handling Rahu’s temptations is to count one’s blessings and realize how good life is, and one need not own a helicopter to feel happy and successful.
Ma Kali: The Boss of Rahu
  • Pray to Ma Kali: Ma Kali is the Boss of Rahu. Praying to Ma can solve the toughest Rahu problems that one can face. Visiting Kali temple on Friday and Saturday would be helpful. One can also wear a Kali pendant and do Kali Mantra.

In addition to the above, keeping Rahu Yantra and chanting Rahu Mantra can also help you a lot.

Rahu period is not easy and natives may suffer. However, if you keep the above in mind and behave accordingly, you would do better than most people.

God Bless,
