Rahu, known as Dragon's head in colloquial terms, is classified as a strong malefic in Astrology terminology. Rahu is also known as Moon's North Node. During transit, it may lead to either positive or negative effect which is usually strong and noticeable.
Rahu is considered to present results which are related to "Karmic effects". At times, it is also seen as cause and effect of the approach adopted by native while conducting one's self.
For example, Rahu passing through a favourable sign in 1st house i.e. the Ascendant may give a sort of upper hand in dealings on account of one's dominating position. Now, if you assert yourself rather overly and manifest loudmouthed expressions, transit of Rahu if favourable here, will allow you to conduct in rather indiscriminative manner.
On other side is transit of Rahu through not so favourable sign in 1st house leading to more hardship and at times you may feel humiliated. You may face difficult situation lying low. No shouting and loud verbal expressions for the sufferings.
In first case, once Rahu leaves 1st house and enters 12th house, one may feel harassed and loosing the ground faster than anticipated. If benefice is not supportive enough, you can get sort of bowled out.
In later case, transit of Rahu through 12th house in Natal chart will surely open doors which were sort of closed for you. With benefice supporting, one may find the right ladder to climb upon to make it big.
Now apart from this ethical aspect, the main issue for discussion is position of Rahu in Natal chart, Ascendant coupled with its transit. Generally the ill effect comes to fore when Sun is in square position. This not so favourable period may last for 3 to 4 months. If one gets in to trouble, it may become difficult to retrace the steps taken. As motion of Rahu is in retrograde mode, one may get deeper into problem. Now this sort of thing happens in most of the charts.
The effect of malefic period gets reduced if the Ascendant falls between 28' degrees to 2' degree. The reason, being obvious here. As when Rahu enters the sign, the initial degrees may not present strong results. As soon as it reaches mid way, the effect may show declining trend. In this way the duration of negative is greatly reduced. In turn, the damage is not huge in proportion. This enables one to move further on road to prosperity rather easily. Rahu may work more effectively around its own degree in Natal chart. So, if Rahu in your birth chart is either of last degrees i.e. 28' to 30' or of o' to 2' degree, you stand a good chance of escaping from malefic effects of transiting Rahu. If benefice is also supportive, you can surely make it big. That is to say, you are on your way to become a Millionaire.
