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.
The transit of Rahu in to the 2nd house from your Moon sign would offer fair results. Misunderstandings at home shall become common. There might be a sense of unusual turbulence felt at home amidst family members. Watch your words, curb down on lengthy conversations as you may not have control over words that you utter, especially during the presence of Rahu in the 2nd house. It is time you have an eye over your finances too. Avoid unnecessary expenditure. Start saving money for your future needs. Do not get involved in transactions pertaining to unknown sources or foreign people. This is the time where you would be forced to spend a lot of money. You need to cut down your expenses for the sake of your own needs in the years to come.
Ketu’s entry to the 8th house from your Moon sign shall make you a responsible person at home and workplace. Do not get involved in unnecessary discussions or controversial remarks upon others at their absence. This transit of Ketu to the 8th house from your Moon sign shall provide you with a good philosophical knowledge and understanding upon unconventional subjects. Possibilities of interaction with individuals who are philosophically/spiritually inclined are on the cards. You could receive sudden gains in the form of knowledge and advice which shall become an integral part of your life. You would be surprised about the transformation you have acquired during this transit period.
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.
