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 your horoscope.
Rahu’s transit to Gemini, the 7th house from your Moon sign is considered to be a moderate placement. You would avail the option of choosing multiple career opportunities, if you are on the lookout for a job. If you are interested in starting up a business, it would flourish during this period. Although you may have to experience practical difficulties and challenges, it shall pass on. You shall travel a lot and explore new people. At one point, you may not find time to interact with others. Get ready to have a forward move in life. Your circle of friends shall expand and you would get to meet more people irrespective of age or profession. You would experience a change in your lifestyle.
Ketu is transiting in to the 1st house, your Moon sign. This shall increase your interest towards higher levels of spiritual and philosophical thoughts. This period is one of the best times for self introspection. Spend some quality time for your betterment each day. This shall enable you to face the challenges of life better, with enough confidence. You would be interested in obtaining philosophical ideas from others. You shall silently observe things happening around you. You would not possess astounding desires, but shall own a matured outlook.
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 attract beneficial blessings of the shadow planets.
