Rahu and Ketu are two shadow planets that hold great significance in Vedic Astrology. They do not possess any physical existence and are ever retrograde in their motion. They change signs once in every 18 months and can bring definite changes during their transits. On March 7, 2019, Rahu will transit to Gemini in Punarvasu Nakshatra and Ketu will transit to Sagittarius in Uttarashada Nakshatra.
The shadow planets Rahu and Ketu are referred to as lunar nodes — most malefic forces in the horoscope. They indicate past life karma and how one experiences it in the present life. Rahu is a shadow planet with a powerful impact on human lives. Rahu is the North node capable of generating interest in worldly comforts and materialistic pleasures. Ketu is the South node, capable of enhancing spiritual interests and pursuits. Both these planets alter the way one thinks and perceives when they occupy a dominating position in the horoscope.
Rahu’s transit to Gemini, the 5th house from your Moon sign is considered to be a pretty good placement. You would enjoy good relationship with everyone at home and away. People would like to have a good rapport with you. You would be successful in speculation and trading. People associated with business, commerce and trading aspects are set to experience gains and smooth sailing in their profession during this transit period. You would be lucky in your overall endeavours. Control your emotions and curtail expectations. Do not be over-enthusiastic. Although there might not be any troubles to experience, a cause of concern over future endeavours and planning might worry you a bit.
Ketu’s transit to Sagittarius, the 11th house from your Moon sign is considered a good placement. Your involvement in spiritual and philosophical ideas would shape up better. Involvement in social and charitable activities shall offer you good satisfaction. Those involved in service-oriented activities are set to get their due in this time frame. It is good to keep calm and let your work do the talking. During this transit, you could get philosophical words of advice and motivation from elders, grandparents and others at home and neighbourhood.
Propitiate Rahu by performing Archana (light and sound ceremony), Abishekam (hydration ceremony), Homa (fire rituals) and Pooja (offerings) to get relief from afflictions due to transits and seek good results from Rahu. Participate in the rituals to attract beneficial blessings of the shadow planet.
