A Snake Transit is never all 'good' or all 'bad' … these fiery planets are usually a mix of both!
Rahu is the karmic aggregator; Ketu is the dispenser and their shift on january 14/15th 2013 will affect a shift in you too.
Rahu pulls together our current life karmas based on our previous birth karmas and Ketu shows the manner in which we will go through that karma in this life.
As Rahu and Ketu are also known as the 'Carriers of Karma', it is inevitable that circumstances will arise that can bring challenges, insecurities and difficulties in feeling personally successful but it will also brings moments of happiness, fulfillment and personal success. It is up to you the degrees of both, that you experience.
There are certain planets namely Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu that make a bigger impact on your life because of the longer time it takes them to move through one sign. Even though they are theoretically Nodes, Rahu and Ketu are 2 of these and they transit together.
