In Vedic Astrology, Rahu shows where we are weak and Ketu indicates our power developed from multiple past lives.
‘Karmic Relationships‘ in astrology reveals about relationship between two people.
Every person brings their own karma into relationships, as indicated by position of Rahu (North Node) and Ketu (South Node) in their birth chart. Cross checking between two individuals birth chart reveal more about what kind of karmic relationship people have with each other. Karmic relationship can be very helpful in any romantic relationship and also in husband-wife relationship.
Generally, if Rahu and Ketu in 1st chart have similar pattern in 2nd chart, then those two persons are karmically connected (through their collective past lives karma).
For Example : If Rahu in your chart occupies Gemini and if it occupies Sagittarius (Ketu’s position in your chart) in your partner or friend’s sign, and also if you both meet frequently, then both are karmically connected.
Also, if Rahu and Ketu are positioned in constellations (nakshatras) owned by same planets in both horoscopes, or if both Rahu, Ketu are conjunct same planet in both charts, or if both Rahu, Ketu are conjunct same cusp lord in both charts, then both persons are in a karmic relation.
If Rahu or Ketu are conjunct another karmic planet like Saturn in both charts, then surely there is a karmic bond between them.
Determining Karmic Relationship through Synastry
Synastry is an astrological technique of determining compatibility between two individual by comparing the planets sign with another person planets sign.
Here we check similar sign fall over each other sign in the birth chart to those in the other person’s chart.
Example : If your Saturn is in Leo and your partner’s Rahu(North Node) is also in Leo, it mean s that your Saturn sign is falling on its Rahu sign and you have some karmic relation with them.
It indicates some past life connection with partner and there is something to be learnt in this lifetime from that person.
Few relations may be highly romantic, but end quickly.
Few may last for longer time but are inclined towards spiritual progress, business prospects, matrimonial relations, children, adoptions, admiration etc.
There is a sanskrit sloka which explains who has strongest karmic relationship with us.
“Runanubhanda Rupena Pasu Patni Suta Aalaya
Runakshaye Kshyayaanthi Tatra Parivedana.”
Translation : Pets, Wife, Children, Home are the result of previous birth bondage.
Once the debt is annihilated there is no relationship and it ends the suffering in this Samsara (world).
