We must all have heard our ancestors say, "Rahu is not in favor," have you ever questioned yourself what Rahu is and what happens if it is in our favor, or not? Okay, there are many such questions, and in simple astrology lies the answer to these questions.
Starting with what is Rahu; Rahu is amongst the nine planets that rule the world of astrology. Rahu is a shadow planet and it usually comes in pairs with Ketu. The time of day that is considered to be under the influence of Rahu is called RÄhu kÄla, and is considered inauspicious. If Rahu's status is solid, it is assumed that he bestows strength and prosperity on the person in the material world. The entity could also gain a lot of psychic powers. Rahu's positive effects include aligning people with the society's popular trends and encouraging them to become successful, and thus acquire place, influence, and social status
Now coming to what are the harmful effects of Rahu, it is considered cruel. Rahu also represents the element of Akash and contributes to psychosis and folly for fear. Like Saturn, Rahu has separate tendencies thus breaking many houses and even business partnerships. It is responsible for discord in marriage or in the family. It is a world of suddenness and produces fast and abrupt outcomes. This controls the parental-side and the in-laws in human relations. On the human body, Rahu is indicative of skin diseases, induces abortions and affects the nervous system, phobia, stammering, leprosy, cancers, snake parts, amputation, leprosy, giddiness, and early child death. Rahu represents the head of the snake, it moves so hard and thus is an incident warning. People with a strong Rahu also try to understand the mysticism of the cosmos and its mysteries.
To minimize these effects and increase the positive effects of Rahu, Shanti mantras have been developed. There are four different types of Shanti mantra:
Ø Rahu Beej Shanti mantra
1. Om Dhum Ram Rahave Namah
