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 every 18 months and can bring definite changes during transits. On March 7, 2019, Rahu will transit to Gemini sign in Punarvasu Nakshatra. 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 shadow planets alter the way one thinks and perceive when they occupy a dominating position in the horoscope.
