Vedic astrology analyses a chart using 7 solid physical planets: the Luna, Solar, Mars, Mercury, Shani, Jupiter, and Venus, as well as Rahu and Ketu. Our birth chart, which depicts our spirit’s voyage on earth, comprises the configuration or arrangement of planets above the location of our birthplace at the time of birth. The chart will reveal information about our character, the kind of interactions we will have, and information about our work, money, and health, to mention a few topics. The Vedic approach will also consider planetary phases and transits when predicting when karma occurrences will take place in our lives.
In contrast to the remaining seven planets, Rahu and Ketu aren’t really made of physical matter; instead, they’re regions of churned-up force that are loaded with meaning and mystique. These are the locations where the trajectories of the Moon as well as Earth cross. Because these two electromagnetic disruptions lie opposite one another, they are referred to as the Moon’s Endpoints or Rahu and Ketu in Vedic terminology.
Here is how Rahu and Ketu’s placement in your kundli affects your life.
- Rahu may also stand for unquenchable wants because it symbolises focus and the places you are often likely to direct your efforts. To achieve some harmony in our lives, one of our tasks will be to restrain or regulate our wants.
- Rahu in the tenth house of the kundali may point to inclinations that, if left uncontrolled, might develop into job satisfaction. Working too much will probably result in a spouse who is unhappy and consequently, relationship issues. So, it is clear that pursuing our passions can also provide challenges. Rahu may also be a symbol of wealth and authority, which is why many Chinese people, in particular, believe that worshipping a dragon will bring riches into their life.
- Ketu, the opposite of Rahu, is far more focused on investing in the past-life wisdom that is relevant to this lifetime and urging us to release our psychological issues and guilt whereas Rahu is primarily interested in the material and worldly things. When Ketu moves beyond intellectual thinking in favour of faith, it will also inspire us to let go of sophisticated characteristics to some extent.
- Ketu may create obstacles and suffering in our lives to force us to alter our cognitions and move on. It could manifest as unreasonable anxieties, encouraging the examination of the psyche, which once more has the potential to bring about significant progress. When it comes to change and submitting the self to a greater force, which can finally result in nirvana, Ketu is very idealistic.
- Rahu, who also symbolises vanity and physique, will exhort us to seek fulfilment, prosperity, and authority in a certain area of life. It may even use deception and manipulation in its effort to realise its goals, leading us to believe that we are protecting the interests of others rather than our own. Rahu is deeply ingrained in our inner self, which renders it difficult for us to recognise the tricks Rahu pulls into our life, regardless of its position in one’s kundli.
- Ketu also stands for the soul. The Kundalini will rise after Rahu can divert its focus from worldly gain and unite its goals with Ketu’s. It is conceivable for Rahu first from the root chakra to ascend and unite with Ketu mostly in the crown chakra, leading to unity and knowledge.
Remember, just as each person in the world is unique, your kundali is also unique. That is why, getting your birth chart checked thoroughly by a renowned astrologer is vital.
