RAHU: Its Effects And Remedies To Nullify Them

We all know that Rahu is considered to be a shadow planet and is also known as Swarbhanu in terms of Astrology. It is the north-node of the moon and is called the Dragon’s Head. Not just this, but this planet is also known as Bhayanka as it is the most feared and derives its name from the Sanskrit word Raa which is affiliated to being secretive and mysterious.

The planet of Rahu is characterized by being violent, aggressive, merciless, mischievous, secretive and mysterious as well. This planet also makes a person less religious and is said to induce plotting, scheming and conspiracy. Moreover, Rahu magnifies the basic characteristics of a planet when it combines with it as Rahu starts functioning as a planet itself. Consequently, situations and circumstances change in life when Rahu is placed in different houses as well. Below is the relationship between Rahu and other houses that will help in knowing more about its various ill effects and causes.
