All You Need to Know About Rahu Chart
In Hindu mythology, there is an intriguing story that imprints the existence of Rahu. The myth speaks about Gods and Demons forming an alliance to churn out nectar from the depth of the ocean. Once the nectar was extracted it was served to the Gods, meanwhile, a Demon named Rahu disguised as god sat between Sun and Moon to consume the nectar and amass immortality. Once the two gods Sun and Moon grew their suspicion they went and complained to Vishnu, the outcome states that Vishnu took his Chakra (blade) and severed Rahu’s neck but the nectar was already down his throat so his detached head survived. Since then it is thought through that Rahu is vindictive towards Sun and Moon and every once he grasps and consumes them to avenge his death, this in return creates the Solar and Lunar Eclipse.
Now the narration clears who or what exactly Rahu is but the interrogation still remains what consequences it has on human life and how it is negative or malefic? If we examine carefully every planet is earmarked to a certain zodiac, for example, Mars is allocated to the sun-sign Aries but Rahu remains undesignated because of the shadow factor. Shadow generally embarks darkness and gloominess, away from light, if the malicious shadow of Rahu latches on a zodiac for a particular amount of timeline in their life it indicates confusion, emotional imbalance and in extreme cases depression. The negativity that comes along with this type of mental illness can result in loss.
