Rahu, the north node of Moon is the cause behind underworld, mafia, smuggling, mining, jails, hospitals, mortuaries, mental asylums, occult and magick practices, bomb blasts, sudden and unexpected incidents in life.
Although Rahu does not exist as a physical planet, it is one of the strongest Karmic planet which influences human life.
Rahu can turn lives upside down overnight or in quick time.
Mafia dons, ovenight stars, sudden millionaires etc are heavily influenced by positive Rahu.
People work at jails, mortuaries, hospitals, graveyards, mental asylums if Rahu is negative.
Rahu overtakes qualities of other planets when in conjunct with them and also behaves like the sign lord in which it is placed, planet with which it is conjunct or aspected.
While giving results, it has similarities with Saturn.
According to hindu mythologies, Rahu is the head of Asura (demon), who was chopped off by Lord Vishnu.
Effects of Rahu in conjunction with other Planets
Rahu with Sun : This sucks up all the physical energy given by Sun, but native still enjoys sun’s positivity if it is powerfully placed (in Aries, Leo or Scorpio).
If these two are conjunct in Libra, energy is sucked up by Rahu and left without any motivation.
In other signs, Rahu boosts the ‘Ego‘ of that person.
He/she will be physically strong, enjoys being with powerful and influencial people, develops strong ego and rarely shows signs of sympathy towards pain of others.
Moon with Rahu : This gives strong imagination but also leads to paranormal experiences, ghosts in dreams, differences with female relatives etc.
It also causes multiple heart breaks, mental unrest, disturbing dreams, insomnia etc.
They cannot handle relations with elders.
Creativity, good communication skills (depending on mercury’s strength) are indicated.
Mars with Rahu : This is a Volcano combination which gives too much of aggression (mostly directionless), sadistic thinking, boost of ego, etc.
One should exercise lot of self control over thoughts, words and actions if they have this combination in their personal horoscope.
These people can cause religious or racist wars.
Many terrorists, anti-social activists, revolutionary leaders were born with this combination.
Only if Mars is debilitated, retrograde of combust, situations will keep them under control.
Mercury with Rahu : This gives imagination, willingness to experiment and revolutionary ideas.
But for them to work, mercury should signify benefic houses.
If Mercury is malefic, then this gives lack of proper judgement in crisis, useless loose talk, blabbering out of frustration, monotony, repetitive and copied thoughts.
Jupiter with Rahu : This is the worst combination called as Guru-Chandala Yoga, and if it occurs in Sagittarius or Pisces signs, its effects are exaggerated.
Jupiter’s knowledge and wisdom are misguided by Rahu’s instincts.
This combination will lead to religious heads, spirituality, writers, orators etc who mislead their followers.
If Jupiter is badly placed, then this leads to unpopularity in social life and religious activities.
Venus with Rahu : This is good only for actors, writers, singers, dancers and musicians, but leads to skin allergies.
They will fail to find right person in their life.
Usually they leave right persons and make wrong choices in the end.
Venus controls sexual instincts, production of sperm/ovary in human body and in many cases, this combination leads to excessive sexual desires (sometimes uncontrollable).
Saturn with Rahu : This combination is called as Shaapit (Cursed) Yoga and life is full of struggle, disappointments, frustrations and sorrow.
They will be forced to experience their karmic results (both positive and negative) and nothing can stop or modify their effects.
They destroy all good that is related to the house they occupy together (unless owner of that house is well placed).
