Rahu Dev – the Supreme Master of Deception, Mystery and Illusion
A positive Rahu can help in civil services, politics, and engineering, to name a few. A negative Rahu creates illusions in the mind, which may make a person give excuses for everything that they may be asked to do. However, Rahu also intensifies energy, so if one works hard, then it will give even more energy to keep one going. This energy is unbridled and can even take one to the dark side – towards negativity (criminal mindset, gambler, etc.).
If one is going under the dasha or mahadasha of Rahu; or Rahu is in the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th house in the kundali chart and one is able to get some Guru in their life, then it can take one to great heights. So Rahu + Jupiter = great achievements. Even if one does not have a guru, it’s important to be inspired by one, so perhaps putting a poster of the one that someone idolizes can greatly help them succeed in life. If a child is greatly under the influence of Rahu, and not listening to anyone, then it’s important for them to do a lot of sports; give them something that they will be allowed to break (if it’s an adult – give them something like a motorcycle). If someone’s Lord Rahu is negative and they are going through the dasha of Rahu, then there’s a very high likelihood of the person becoming very negative and they may have quite a few of the following traits:
Rahu causes great struggles to people who are in the ages of 31 to 45 years in the home. Usually, the problems start after 36. In general, all the members of the home will have stomach related problems.
There may be a lucky one or two who may not have them. A lot of money will get wasted. For example, buying things that may turn out to be really bad quality and hence had to be discarded.
There won’t be happiness in such homes.
The family members will have some unknown fear in them at all times.
There may be wall cracks in the kitchen or in the roof.
Sleeping late at night & getting up late in the day, can become dependent on alcohol/drugs/other substance, may not be able to concentrate on anything for more than 15 minutes, may feel like breaking things; will get involved in mobiles and technology too much; one may waste the whole day in trying to fix something; can become violent – especially when someone has married and their Rahu dasha has also started, the couple needs to be very careful so their relationship does not break. too much excitement not believing in any traditions or rituals being angry and irritable making many excuses and telling lies
Rahu is the materialistic aspect or the maya of life. It represents all kinds of enjoyments, luxury, materialistic comforts etc. It increases the materialistic aspect of any house it sits in if it is well placed. If not, it reduces material well-being. If placed in 2nd, it can give unimaginable wealth. I know people who have gained millions, even billion in one stroke of luck funded by Rahu. Rahu can give unimaginable financial gains if it comes to that. It can create an endless flow of material comforts ranging from food to vehicle to bed pleasures, etc. And at the same time, it can give great spiritual and mental progress as well. The results depend on the person’s horoscope.
Rahu also gives a person unparalleled wisdom, the ability to act and know without seeing. The ability to comprehend problems even before they arise. The ability to see with eyes closed, understand clearly without enough information, foresight, vision, clarity, premonitions, ability to judge the outcome and decide beforehand, excellent estimation skills, strategic capabilities etc are also the results for Rahu.
Rahu is the source of all chaos and turmoil. For this reason, Rahu could give sudden gains, or sudden losses.
Recite the mantra for Rahu Dev is another way to make it positive. Say this out loud, then while whispering, and finally in your head
