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.
Rahu’s transit into Gemini, the 11th house from your Moon sign is considered to offer favorable results. You shall experience unexpected gains. Relationship between elder brothers and sisters would blossom as you would be delighted to receive their support. There could be quick progress for those expecting growth in career. Misunderstanding between husband and wife would get resolved smoothly. There would be a good rapport and support from your spouse’s family. You would accumulate wealth by means of foreign travel or through foreigners.
Ketu’s transit into Gemini, the 5th house from your Moon sign is not a fine placement. You would be less interested in interacting with others at home and office. Try not to wait for luck to favor you, instead, make the first effort from your side. Execute good relationship with children at home. Offer inspiring thoughts and words of advice to get them motivated. Although it is not a fearful time frame, it is advisable to stay in safe hands.
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 beneficial blessings of the shadow planets.
