Rahu & Ketu: Why People are Fearful of them?

Role of Rahu & Ketu in Vedic Astrology

Rahu and Ketu are two planets that we usually come across in Vedic Astrology. Rahu and Ketu are two imaginary points in sky. Rahu and Ketu have been regarded as planets in Vedic Astrology. There is an interesting story about the origin of Rahu and Ketu. The story of rahu and ketu goes something like this:

The legend has it that both the Gods and the Demons got into an alliance to produce nectar that provides immortality. This nectar could only be obtained by churning the ocean. This popular incident of Hindu Mythology is also known as Samundra Manthan. So, when the nectar was being served to the Gods, one of the demons camouflaged as God set between the Sun and the Moon in an attempt to acquire the nectar. The Sun and the Moon recognized the demon and complained about it to the Lord Vishnu. Hearing this Lord Vishnu immediately cut off the neck of the demon from his Chakra but the demon had already consumed the nectar to make him immortal. The head of the demon, also called Rahu, became immortal and the remaining cadaver of the demon came to be known as Ketu. Ever since, Rahu and Ketu became the strongest enemies of the Sun and the Moon. The story goes that the eclipse occur due to Rahu and Ketu when they come closer to them and swallow them. Thus, Rahu and Ketu became the strong enemy of the Sun and the Moon and by eclipse took revenge from both of them.

In Vedic Astrology, Rahu and Ketu are two invisible planets that have strong malefic effects and are also the enemies of the Sun and the Moon. Astronomically speaking Rahu and Ketu are two points in the sky also called the North and South Lunar Nodes. North and South Lunar Nodes are the points of intersection where the moon's path meets the sun's path and have been described through symbols in Hindu Mythology. Hence, Rahu is a north node and Ketu is the south node.

Rahu in Vedic Astrology

Rahu is the north node in the sky where the paths of the Sun and Moon intersects. It is considered as the powerful and malefic shadow planet. Being a shadow planets it is not assigned to any zodiac sign as well.

Significance of Rahu in Vedic Astrology

The malefic Rahu is related to the unconscious desires, ambition, pleasures, fear and uncultured behavior. it shares the same tendency as that of Saturn can bring about unexpected losses and frustrations in life. When places in the favorable position in the kundali or natal chart, it can bring about comforts, success, riches, power and strength. It also gives victory over the enemies and opposition too. Even though it provides all these material things, it also provides an affect of dissatisfaction, an urge to want more. It gives the native a desire which the person is unable to understand but pursues relentlessly and even obsessively such as addiction.

Rahu represents the dark side of human nature and is rebellious to the core standing against everything orthodox and illegal. But it also gives strong intuition and comprehensive understanding of Psychology.

Ketu in Vedic Astrology

Ketu, like Rahu, is not an actual planet in the solar system. It is simply a node where the sun's and moon's paths intersect. The southern node of intersection of the paths is termed as Ketu in Vedic Astrology.

Significance of Ketu in Vedic Astrology

Ketu is the Chhaya Grah in Vedic Astrology also known as planet of shadow. Ketu has two aspects in the Vedic Astrology. One is that Ketu is highly related to the karma.
