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 sign 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.
Rahu’s transit into Gemini, the 12th house from your Moon sign shall help you identify the real self. You would be fresh and rejuvenated after over a year full of unpredictable and inconsistent activities in life. You would get a chance to move abroad during this transit period. You might spend a lot of money and would find it difficult to control expenses. You might spend more time over entertainment and pleasure. Although it might thrill you, it doesn’t seem to offer good result. So, try not to spend more time and money for entertainment-related activities. You may not be able to sleep properly as you would be busy with your career or looking after your family.
Ketu’s transit into Sagittarius, the 6th house from your Moon sign offers a sigh of relief after consistent struggle and stagnation. Your aptitude would assist you when needed. Find time to relax and develop strategies for future endeavours. You would have to be careful in official matters. Inconsistent environment prevailing over work place would vanish away. There would be some sort of a progress in life. Do not come to a conclusion upon silly conversations or intermediary information. Display care and caution over any changes you overcome in health matters. Do not argue or develop controversial communication with maternal uncle and nephew/ niece.
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 and Ketu. Participate in the rituals to obtain beneficial blessings of the shadow planet.
