The effects of Rahu and Ketu Part 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Part 1

1) Rahu and Ketu are always the enemies of the Sun and the Moon and are always moving, eagerly expecting opportunities to swallow the Sun and the Moon. The Sun and the Moon become weak when eclipsed at the places of Rahu and Ketu, Rahu and Ketu become weak when in combination with the Sun and the Moon. Rahu and Ketu give their results in their Periods and sub-Periods according to the nature of the planets, that are in combination with them or that aspect them and according to the strength of the planets in whose Rasi or Navamsa, they are posited.

If they are associated with benefic planets they yield benefic results, if they are in association with malefic they produce bad results. They have no effects of their own. As they are the enemies of the Sun and the Moon, who are the only luminaries out of the planets (i.e. they have no intrinsic or independent effects and their effects are borrowed or usurped from the planets that are in association with them or that are the lords of the Rasis occupied by them in Rasi and Navamsa charts). Learned should infer their effects according to the nature of the lords of the Rasis occupied by them. They will produce good or bad results according to the rasi occupied by them whether it is benefic or malefic of these two. Rahu will produce bad effects when it is in Kendra and Trikona positions; when in the second bhava, it will use expenditure and trouble to members of the family; when in the fourth bhava, it will cause diseases and disgrace to mother; when in the fifth bhava, it will cause danger to children; when in the sixth bhava, it will cause fear through enemies etc. and troubles or dangers from thieves, snakes and wind; when in the seventh bhava, it will produce danger to wife and cause theft while in a foreign place; when in the eighth bhava, it will produce a serious sickness or unnatural death, or sufferings; when in the ninth bhava, it will cause troubles to father and ungratefulness to preceptor etc; when in the tenth bhava, it will cause the Native to follow undesirable occupation and when auspicious in the tenth bhava, it will give him a sacred bath in the Ganges etc; when in the eleventh bhava, it will cause a set-back to gains and when in the twelfth bhava, it will cause all sorts of expenditure. Only a summery of effects has been described here. These also are the results of Ketu and Ketu effects will be the effects of the lord of the rasi occupied by him.

The above mentioned are a few of the Effects of the various Major periods when the lords of houses operate in them. Many modifications with respect to individual horoscopes will have to be made before actual events are determined. It is necessary to know when exactly during the Major period some of these Effects will be realised.


All planets except the Sun and Moon own two signs in the zodiac. Therefore, there will be two houses owned by a planet in a horoscope. As such, they should produce the Effects of affairs indicated by two houses. Does the planet operate the results simultaneously? Unless we know the answer to this question, we shall not be able to make correct predictions. Therefore let us examine the sequence of operation of house Effects.
