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 9th house from your Moon Sign is considered significantly a good placement. Rahu is said to bestow some good changes in the days to come. This is the time frame where you would receive gifts and good wishes. You would gain assets, both movable and immovable. Do not inflict trust in the words of unknown people without performing your ground work on certain important matters. You would back at your best in performing your duties next to none in the professional front. Do not be so harsh on your father; rather understand him a bit more. There could be chances arising where some of you could shift to another city or move to another place for living. Overall you could make this transit to work in your favour with sheer brilliance.
Ketu’s transit in Sagittarius, the 3rd House from your Moon sign would offer good results. This is the period where you need to cast in all your efforts irrespective of the results you obtain. You would be defending yourself in your pursuits with your mind and not with shoulder power. This is the best time for planning for future. Ketu’s presence in the 3rd house also slows down your communicative skills. You would be least interested in interacting unnecessarily with your peers at office and family members at home. Silence might sneak in to your life for a few days. Instead, you would be interested to hear a lot from near and dear ones. Maintain a cordial relationship with younger siblings. There are chances for getting minor frictions. This is the time when you might get irritated with their words or actions.
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. Participate in the rituals to obtain beneficial blessings of the shadow planet.
