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 in Gemini to the 10th house from your Moon Sign is considered a good indicator. Rahu’s transit into Gemini shall improve your social status. The reach and recognition you have in your workplace would reach new heights. You would be eager to take on new challenges and ultimately be successful in creating new records. During this process, you would rewrite your own accomplishments. Your work place would adorn a new look. You shall be doubly involved in career related activities. Your profession would demand your presence at important junctures. You would be assigned additional responsibilities at work place. You may travel abroad for official reasons. You could meet or communicate with foreign people for official reasons. You shall experience many long pending plans getting executed now.
Ketu’s Transit in Sagittarius through the 4th house from your Moon sign would have a moderate impact. Although you would be happy, you could think that things do not match your expectations. Do not get involved in serious arguments with your mother. Even if something does not go as per your expectations, you need to wait for the right moment to have your say. Do not publicise your opinion. It is a good time to take your vehicles to the garage and get it repaired/serviced. Allocate time to communicate with your mother, which shall strengthen your bond with her. Avoid consuming outside food pretty often. Ketu’s presence in the 4th house is a good time to observe fast and practice strict adherence in food related matters.
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.
