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 planets alter the way one thinks and perceives when they occupy a dominating position in the horoscope.
The transit of Rahu in to your Moon sign, your 1st house would offer you quite a lot of mixed results in the days to come. You would sport a new look and attractive behaviour. There would be a significant change in your character. You would be interested in travel and accumulating branded and imported products. There shall be a sense of unpredictability in your approach. You are destined to acquire famous/astonishing things coming your way related to fashion, electronics, communication, etc. You would not be interested to stay in one place; instead you would be interested to make many short trips around the place where you reside. There shall be a sense of desperation in all your activities and you tend to go wild even if one of your efforts doesn’t go as per expectations. Do not lose your cool in any situation.
The transit of Ketu to the 7th house from your Moon sign is said to offer results lesser than expected. Some of you may experience lack of interest towards worldly affairs. There could be misinterpretations pertaining to marital affair. Your life partner or business partner might not be as active as per your expectations. This could at times ruin your plans and you might have to reschedule several times. This may psychologically impact your performance. This is the time frame where you have to overlook all life factors other than your routine. At times, you could think of making a big change in life related to your career and family. Do not undertake any drastic changes all of a sudden as it might not serve the purpose. Play watchful in all aspects, so that you do not get affected much in the process.
Propitiate Rahu and 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 Rahu and Ketu. Participate in the rituals to obtain the beneficial blessings of the shadow planets.
