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 to Gemini, the 4th house from your Moon sign is considered to be a moderate placement. There could be misunderstandings in deciding about the domestic requirements at home. Expectations from your mother would be higher upon you. Ensure care on your mother’s health as she could experience occasional health issues. You would be driven towards luxury vehicles and would also be interested in acquiring one. It is time to hone your natural skills and ability to take up complex tasks. This is also the time where you have to play the waiting game when expecting a result. So, balance yourself to attain your goals.
Ketu’s transit to Sagittarius, the 10th house from your Moon sign shall make you draw more efforts to create opportunities. There are chances of visiting temples and sacred places of spiritual interest. Do not make any hasty decisions before knowing the result of your hard work. Do your duty and leave the rest to the supreme power to decide. Do not disclose any of your official plans to others or in public. You would be recognized for your unusual skill, and would gain recognition and approval.
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 attract beneficial blessings of the shadow planet.
