The Brighter Side Of The Dark Rahu!


The importance of Rahu need not be overemphasised. This malefic planet occupies a significant place in the list of celestial bodies. Rahu is considered a shadow planet as per the ancient science of Astrology, meaning it has no real physical existence. However, its malefic influence is very strong and its presence is said to make the lives of natives very difficult. The presence of Rahu in peoples' horoscope signifies karma bondage coming down from the previous births.

The alignment of Rahu with different planets creates different types of bondages (problems).  As per the Indian tradition, Rahu represents the head. According to the Hindu belief, Rahu can not discriminate between good and evil, and so it works against the standards of righteousness (Dharma). Rahu is stated to be ignorant about the spiritual subjects and it is a slave to the Cosmic Game of Illusion (Maya).
