The Nature of Rahu and Ketu
Rahu and Ketu are known as Chaya Graha, the shadow planets, as they do not have a physical existence. They are karmic planets that wield a significant impact on human lives. Rahu rules Maya, the illusion, and signifies wealth and worldly pleasures, often through unknown means. It can also bring sorrow and confusion and thus cloud the mind, obscuring the clarity of thought, just like eclipse bringing darkness. Though it can provide a lot, it may fail to give lasting happiness. Whatever it gives is likely to be taken away too, suddenly. However, Ketu is related to spiritual and psychic pursuits. Ketu reveals the folly of materialism and draws us towards the spiritual path. It can bring loss and sorrow, and in the process, can make people turn to God. Thus, material losses can be offset by spiritual gains.
Both Rahu and Ketu are seen as malefic. When afflicted, they can confuse people thoroughly, making them take wrong decisions. In some cases, Rahu can even push one into suicide. Loss of wealth and self-esteem, infamy, and disgrace can result if Rahu remains unfavorable in a person’s birth chart. On the other hand, when favorable, it can turn even a beggar into a millionaire! Ketu can create confusion and a sense of detachment and contribute to difficulties, struggles, and losses. A person might become a wanderer once under Ketu’s influence.
