Mythology on Archetype Rahu:

Rahu was born to the demon Viprasitthi and his wife Simmikai. Ketu was Rahu’s brother. Both Rahu and Ketu were the grandsons of saint Katchya.

During the churning of Milky Ocean by Angels and Demons, Lord Vishnu took the form of a beautiful maiden to procure Immortality Nectar (Holy Drink) from the bottom of the ocean. He wanted to offer this nectar to the Angels. When the nectar emerged to the surface, a scramble ensued between the Angels and Demons to obtain this nectar. Rahu disguised in the form of an Angel got into the queue between the Sun and the Moon, collected the nectar and gulped it.

When the truth came to light, both the Sun and the Moon complained to Lord Vishnu who hit Rahu with the ladle and beheaded him with his Chakra (the Divine Wheel). As Rahu had already taken the nectar, he attained immortality and therefore survived the fatal assault of Lord Vishnu.

The severed head of Rahu fell to the earth in Bapra Kingdom ruled by Viprasitthi and Simmikai who brought him up in their palace. The head of Rahu was attached to a body of a serpent. After performing rigorous penance and praying to Lord Vishnu, Rahu attained the status of a planet.

Rahu is not a planet exactly, but it exerts influence on human beings.
