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 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 planets alter the way one thinks and perceives when they occupy a dominating position in your horoscope.
Rahu’s transit to Gemini, the 6th house from your Moon sign is considered to be a good placement.
You would spend important occasions with your family and friends. In the professional front, your work place would keep you busy and interesting. You would find success in all your ventures after facing challenges. Those suffering from prolonged illness are set to find the road for recovery. You would not experience troubles from enemies. Exhibit caution during travel. Make use of this important time frame where you could turn the tables in your favour. You would be confident enough to face any tough situation coming your way.
Ketu’s transit in the 12th house from your Moon sign is also another good indication for finding change in your mindset. You would possess a refined look and there would be change in your approach. You would also get inclination towards righteousness and spirituality. Your thoughts and actions would be graceful. You would feel proactive. This is indeed a good time to undertake Yatra (spiritual tour). You could meet some important people in your life during this period. You would be conceptualizing things differently.
Propitiate Ketu 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 Ketu. Participate in the rituals to attract beneficial blessings of the shadow planet.
