General Predictions: How Rahu-Ketu Transit will Influence You?
Ashta Lakshmi Yoga
According to Nadi astrology, Ashta Lakshmi Yoga is formed with the energy of Rahu and Jupiter. This yoga will occur in 2014 because Rahu, transiting in Virgo, will
be aspected by Jupiter from an auspicious Kendra house. The planet Jupiter in the sign Cancer that is in North direction, and Rahu in the sign Virgo that is in South
direction will be facing each other. Their placements will be creating the Ashta Lakshmi Yoga.
Ashta Lakshmi Yoga generates a very powerful energy that is equivalent to the blessings of eight forms of Goddess Lakshmi namely Gaja Lakshmi (signify power of
Royalty), Dhana Lakshmi (signify Money), Santhana Lakshmi (signify off-spring), Aishwarya Lakshmi(signify Prosperity), Dhanya Lakshmi (signify Food), Vijayalakshmi
(signify Achievement) , Dhairiya Lakshmi (signify Courage), Vidya Lakshmi ( signify Learning)
According to Nadi astrology, Millionaire yoga occurs when Ketu is along with Jupiter. Such a favorable conjunction of Ketu and Jupiter took place in the year 2012.
In traditional astrology terms, it is called KELA YOGA. Following Ketu’s transit in Pisces, Nadi Astrology says that in 2014, the same energies will prevail.
Jupiter will be present in the sign Cancer which is in North direction and Ketu in Pisces will also be in North direction - both the planets are in the same
direction creating the yoga. Moreover, the planet Jupiter in its exalted state will be aspecting Ketu which is an added advantage. These two factors will create the
millionaire yoga energy. In this millionaire yoga conditions are favorable to amplify energy because Jupiter is exalted and aspects Ketu which is in Jupiter’s sign
Effects of Rahu Transit
- Rahu is entering Virgo and this is considered to be a powerful conjunction where he also will be sharing his dominion with the ruler of the sign, Mercury.
- Rahu in Virgo can bring upon all kinds of success and financial abundance.
- Rahu is hardly ever satiated; nothing can fulfill its hunger. So when a person is under the effects of Rahu during its transit or planetary periods, he or she
constantly feels the pangs of unfulfilling desires. But in Virgo, it is a different scenario! Here, Rahu gets finally happy with the financial abundance. From this
residence, Rahu makes people prosperous and happy.
- This shadow planet is generally believed to bring unexpected luck.
Effects of Ketu Transit
Ketu is believed to be in its own sign when it is residing in Pisces. Pisces is the favorable sign for the study of ancient knowledge and planning investments. Ketu
itself is the planet that encourages learning, ancient knowledge of the Vedas, Siddha techniques and Ayurveda. It brings in all prosperity through knowledge. It also
helps the mind to visualize and find ways to bring prosperity business ventures.
This is indeed a lucky coincidence of two friends coming together to promote good things. Ketu with Jupiter’s supportive energies will gain the ability to help
people become millionaires and billionaires. So, when Ketu transits into Pisces, the planet Jupiter, ruler of the sign Pisces will have many common purposes to promote
along with Ketu. Especially, when this shadow planet is believed to materialize a person’s expectations.
Rahu and Ketu are powerful than the Sun and the Moon
It is one of those times when confusion and mayhem in the sky brings about a change in the pattern of energy flow in the space and subsequently in our lives. In
Vedic astrology, Rahu and Ketu are shadow planets or Chhayagrahas. They are called shadow planets because they are not physical planets like Saturn, Venus or Jupiter,
but the nodal points of the Moon where Moon’s orbit crosses the ecliptical path of the Earth travelling around the Sun. The two biggest luminaries of Vedic astrology –
the Sun and the Moon having the most prominent influence over other planets tend to shadow each other at these points.
The nodes of Moon - Rahu and Ketu: Rahu is the ascending or North Node of the Moon and Ketu is the descending or South Node of the Moon. Eclipses take place at
these Nodes. The two luminaries coming closer to each other create havoc in space – an intense transformation of energy.
Planets in Vedic astrology are called Grahas or the intense forces. As the two nodes of Rahu and Ketu also create intense energies that affect human life, Vedic
astrology has designated them as the shadow planets or Chhayagrahas. So intense is the energy produced by conjoined forces of the Sun and the Moon at the two nodes
that Hindu Mythology narrates it as a story of Rahu and Ketu always trying to engulf the Sun and the Moon.
Rahu and Ketu are always in retrograde motion to other planets. This means they are always moving in the opposite direction to the physical planets.
Rahu and Ketu are always facing each other - A Mythological Interpretation
Rahu and Ketu are always diagonally placed in a natal chart that means if Rahu is in 11th House in one’s chart, Ketu will be in 5th House. They also move diagonally
to each other while transiting from one sign to another. On July 13th 2014, as Rahu is transiting in Virgo, Ketu is transiting in Pisces.
The demon who stole nectar of immortality from Gods: Once the Demons and Gods were churning the Ocean of Milk, and the event is known as Samudra Manthan in Hindu
mythology. Both the Gods and the demons were engaged in strife to secure the divine nectar of immortality. A demon secretly got hold of a portion of the nectar and
began to drink it. Sun and Moon noticed this and they were alarmed that the demon will become immortal. The Gods panicked and sent Mohini, the female avatar of Vishnu
to prevent him from drinking the nectar. When the demon had already taken the nectar, Mohini cut off his head before the nectar could percolate into his body.
Embodiment of Rahu and Ketu: The severed head of the demon came to be called Rahu which remained immortal. Time and again Rahu swallows the Sun creating eclipse.
The body attained an individual identity called Ketu which, time and again swallows the Moon causing lunar eclipse.
Nature of Rahu and Ketu complement each other: Rahu represent materialistic pleasure and Ketu spiritual liberation. Rahu’s head was cut off by Mohini but he
retained the nectar of true happiness, the Amrita. So Rahu encourages humans to indulge in materialistic pleasures of life while Ketu the headless body brings about
spiritual transformations. Without the head or brain, Ketu fails to be logical or to think rationally, it is liberated from any attachments.
