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 your 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 8th house from your Moon sign shall offer you relief from mixed emotions and external turbulences. The shadow entity’s transit into the 8th house from your Moon sign means, you would regain your lost touch. There could be difficulties in getting properties through inheritance. It is a good time to get involved in healthy practices such as yoga, physical fitness and rehabilitation. You may find it difficult to resolve problems easily.

Ketu’s transit into the 2nd house from your Moon sign shall have a moderate impact. Your house and family could be involved in philosophical and charitable duties. Everyone would be busy in some way or the other which might make you feel ignored and left alone. There could be a sigh of silence maintained in family, especially at home. At times, you might feel detached or like to find some space off from others. You would be able to think and strategize better during this period.
