Early in the morning when you open the newspaper and go through the horoscope section, it basically predicts the next 24 hours and provides you with an initial reminder of the do’s and don’ts of the diurnal course but this predominant wordings of a daily life fails to mention the much deeper the course of astrology that might also affect the coming tomorrow. This again brings about the concept of Sidereal Astrology which is prevailing from the Vedic age and in these Vedic manuscripts, a very prominent figure in the study is Rahu. Rahu has always been addressed as a very negative figure and its sightings in an individual’s astrological musings can refer to darkness, adversity and an overall beginning of an atrocious time. But before we conceptualize the fallacious outcome of Rahu it is important to know Rahu properly. The term ‘Rahu’ has Sanskrit origination. As it is a part of sidereal astrology deals with planets with Rahu being the Navagraha or the ninth planet, Rahu is considered a shadow planet which means it doesn’t fall under a physically existed extra-terrestrial body and this also adds up to the non-beneficial factors associated with Rahu who’s reasons will be justified later in the article.
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. The placement of Rahu tells a lot if noticed; a very important point highlighted is that Rahu mostly affects the personal bonding with other people, this again chains to the concept of 7 houses of zodiacs. According to Hindu Astrological believes there are ‘bhavas’ which indicate different attributes of one’s life like Money, Work, Health, etc. Similarly, the 7th House falls under the field of marital life, relationships of any sought it can also associate with business partners. According to exercise Rahu also exalts in the 7th house and a disbalance in the obscuration of Rahu can create a nuisance in a relationship leading to arguments with the ultimatum of discontinuity. Rahu in specific cases can also bring success but generally in a negative form but on the usage of immoral grounds. In certain aspects of politicians, magicians, thieves Rahu is not considered a hindrance as culpable norms are applied. Rahu can also give an impeccable power of obtaining a huge about money in a very effortless manner but it must be noted that this monetary gain is very negative, short span, and can lead to destruction.
Now when we talk about turning Rahu to positive there are assertive points to be kept in mind. First, Rahu is never auspicious it is always considered inauspicious because of the negative energy it possesses. Second, Rahu usually comes along with a strong determinant so if this intensity could be nurtured in a positive space the effect of Rahu can be turned constructive. For example, You are very ambitious about a position in your job and lately, you have been feeling an uncanny amount of strong initiation to get to that place, this can be a performance of Rahu in your astrological readings and this excessive desire can lead to utilization of an unfair mean but if you decide to stay rigid and able to your ground this negative force could be turned positive. Rahu brings about obstruction so praying to Ganesha can bring about an optimistic outcome. If it is suspected that a house is being backlashed by Rahu naming the house under the ancestor’s name and praying to them every morning can also work as a remedy.
Hessonite also popularly known as Rahu gemstone can be worn
to turn the adverse effect into something good, this is recommended to people
who has a glance at Rahu in the perusal of their birth chart? It is certain
pessimism to be objected in one’s routine when afflicted by Rahu like sleeping
late and waking up late, increase in the consumption of alcohol, improving
certain negative habits can also be considered a treatment for changing the
a course of Rahu.
