What are Rahu & Ketu?

As per the ancient occult science of Vedic Astrology, Rahu & Ketu are naturally malefic planets that cast sudden and more often than not, negative impact on the lives of people. These are referred to as ‘Shadow Planets’ since they do not exist in the physical form but are subtle nodes of the Moon. Rahu is the North Node of the Moon and Ketu is the South Node of the Moon. Make no mistake, despite the subtle existence, Rahu & Ketu cast phenomenally powerful impacts upon a person based on their positioning in the (natal) horoscope of that person.

However, the effects of Rahu & Ketu are not just because of their positioning in the Natal Horoscope or Janam Kundli of a person, but also due to their transitory movement in the zodiac belt.

Rahu & Ketu, unlike other planets, always move in a retrograde state and both the planets are always 180 degrees apart from each other.

Rahu will enter in the sign of Pisces and Ketu will enter in the sign of Virgo on 30th October 2023 and will transit in these signs for around 18 months to come. This transit of Rahu & Ketu in Pisces & Virgo respectively will have an extremely powerful impact on the lives of all.

However, people having 5 specific ascendant signs will be at a much higher risk as compared to others and must take extreme precaution during this time to safeguard themselves from the negative effects of Rahu & Ketu.

Out of Rahu and Ketu, Rahu is the most notorious & malefic one. If one manages to pacify or negate the malefic effects of Rahu then most of the problems signified by these malefic planets could be avoided.
