Good results by Rahu and Ketu

Rahu and Ketu are considered shadow planets (chhaya graha). They are mathematical entities whose manifestation is physically evident only during solar and lunar eclipses.

References to Rahu and Ketu can be found in a lot of Hindu scriptures including Rigveda, Atharva-veda and Mahabharata. Per Vishnu Purana, Rahu was a demon (asura, rakshasa) who tasted amrit, the divine nectar of immortality, by deceit, which was being served only to Gods by Vishnu, under the guise of Mohini. Even though Vishnu tried to kill him, he did not die because by then he had already consumed amrit. The upper and lower body parts of that demon were named as Rahu and Ketu.

In the group of planets referred to in Indian astrology, Rahu and Ketu can be considered the only two demons. Every other planet is worshipped as a god in Indian mythology. They do not own any signs, but they do own nakshatras, and are hence assigned appropriate dasha periods in the Vimshottari dasha system. Rahu owns Ardra, Swati and Shatabisha and has 18 years of Vimshottari dasha. Ketu owns Ashvini, Magha and Moola nakshatras and has 7 years out of 120 years of Vinshottari dasha period.

In any of the journals of Indian astrology, no positive words have been used while describing either Rahu or Ketu. First and foremost, they come from a demonic background. Secondly, they are considered to be wile, deceitful and dishonest. After all, Rahu did succeed in tricking Vishnu in serving him amrit. Rahu is described as a liar, a patient of leprosy, foul mouth and full of criticism about others. Ketu is a scoundrel and one with low character. Ketu also has weak lungs because he smokes a lot. Both these planets cause smallpox, leprosy, worms in stomach and other diseases. Rahu especially is responsible for psychiatric disorders and other diseases of mind, especially when conjunct with Moon.

Given such negative characteristics, it would seem surprising that most of us survive the wrath of these planets because they are bound to affect one house or other in our horoscopes.

If placed well in a chart, these planets work to check the very bad qualities they represent. Rahu gives courage, prestige and fame, Ketu works towards providing knowledge and moksha, the final liberation from the cycle of birth and death. Rahu represents ghosts (pret and pishacha). Placed well in a chart, it can bring out extraordinary qualities in terms of supernatural in an individual.

The question is – what does good placement in a chart mean for Rahu and Ketu? Rahu and Ketu do well if they come under the influence of Jupiter and Venus, who are the gurus of Gods and demons respectively. As explained in Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra (BPHS), Rahu is exalted in Taurus and its moolatrikona sign is Cancer. Ketu is exalted in Scorpio and its moolatrikona signs (there are two of them) are Gemini and Sagittarius. Rahu’s negative tendencies can be kept in check by strengthening Mercury. Quite logical, given that Mercury represents intellect and Rahu works towards destroying it.

Rahu’s placement in ascendant gives money to an individual from unexpected sources. However, it is not considered good in house number two, which is the actual house of wealth. Rahu in sixth house gives a lot of power to conquer enemies in a battlefield. Ketu does well in third house, where it gives a lot of money to an individual. Although, this combination cannot be considered good for younger brothers. Ketu in sixth house is a good placement – it makes an individual generous and famous. Ketu’s placement in eleventh and twelfth house is considered extremely auspicious, where it gives results to make a person’s worth equivalent to that of kings.

Bharat Says:
February 17th, 2013 at 2:03 am

Respected Sir,
My current Mahadasha is Rahu.
I am passing through a very difficult phase of life and it seems there is no end to my woes. Birth Details-14.03.1966, Place-New Delhi,Time-10:45 PM (22:45 hrs).
Lost job in December 2007 and since then I am jobless. Was doing very well professionally and was at number a king and now for past 5 years it’s a life of beggary. All my attempts to get a job and doing business were in vain .In between a little bit of success..just to ensure that I am ‘just alive’. Not married till date….don’t know if that’s is advisable for me….or will happen at all? Please let me know if life is going to be like this only…and is there any use of trying? Because I have a feeling that I am wasting my time by running after worldly success (I am not greedy ) .Whenever it looks like that I am about to attain success, all of a sudden some unexpected situation emerges and everything becomes zero.
Have consulted many astrologers and all their predictions have not come out to be true. Wearing Neelam in gold in my middle finger since past one year but no change. Some say it’s due to Gulika in my chart, and they also say some not very good things about my current Rahu Mahadasha. Just for your info, during my Mars Mahadasha I got unbearable pain and misery, misfortune etc….I am under debt till my neck….God knows what’s the reason, and Moon Mahadasha was fantastic.

Please Help and advise any remedial measures etc….I won’t hesitate to take all kind of hardships in doing any pooja , mantra , all by myself…I am very sincere that way.

I would also request you to kindly throw some light on mu spiritual life and also if my mother’s health is going to be fine for some years at least.
Please see below an analysis by a competent astrologer.. and I am grateful to him but the gentleman didn’t advice any solution…going by this it seems there is no ray of hope for me:

1st and 7th are kendra sthanan which shows how much effort a person put and comes up in life.
Malefics are strong in kendras. benefics are strong in trines.

In your chart…..
4th and 5th lord Saturn combust.
9th lord in 6th, In Pisces retro merc shld give exalted result.
but this ensures running family smoothly and good improvements in career.
2nd,5th,7th and 11th lord are weak.
12th lord is strong so feel of satisfaction through losses and expenditure is seen. (try to capture the in depth details of anything to avoid losses)

Rahu dasa giving the combined effect of Ju 3rd and 6th lordship and Ra in 8th house,
debts,enemies,worries will be a part of life.
6th lorship strength decides you ll come out of debt or not.
In your case it is weak.
Many thanks for your time and kind help.

You have mentioned Ketu in 11th is excellent. What about Rahu in 11th?

Irrespective of placement I think Rahu (Mercury and Durga) and Ketu (Ganesh) needs to be prayed to daily͵ by all.

Good points made by Sundara Vadanam. Hats off to you.

In fact, Ketu is like a ‘black hole’. He sucks out whatever is fed into him and still makes you feel dissatisfied. King Yayati had sung a Gatha on the harm caused by implacable desires. The house where Ketu sits can be considered the place that gives these desires.

my ASC is Capricorn. Mars and Ketu is in 1st house, Moon and Rahu is in 7th house, Jupiter and Saturn is in 9th house, Venus is in 11th house, Mercury and Sun is in 12th house. Time of Birth : 9:30am

I don’t get things easily. Everything happens at last moment or at the time of frustration. Nothing can be said as positive.

My parents were looking for a right partner for a long time. But, few comes in and with no reason gets dropped off. They are quite upset on this.

I wear a kalasarpa dosha ring too but nothing worked out positively.

When is my marriage likely to happen? Why do I don’t get benefit for my hardwork ?

Dear Sirs,

I am learning astrology and wanted to know what yog does exalted rahu, ketu and saturn confer in the same chart.

In my case the above three planets are all exalted. My ketu is exalted and placed in my second house. Exalted Rahu is placed in 8th house and exalted saturn in placed in 12th house.

Yael Says:
January 2nd, 2010 at 12:25 am

Hi, I have a special constellation that I wonder about with Ketu.

Ketu and Moon is conjunct in my chart in the 11th house – Leo. 4 hours before a total solar eclipse that took place at my birth. Mars is in my 10th house but in Leo, since my accendant is 6 degrees in Libra.
Mercury is retrograde in Virgo but also in my 11th house.

The 1st of februari Jupiter will be conjunct with my native Rahu, in the 5th house.

My question is – do you have any readings regarding these strange positions like Solar Eclipse in the 11th house or Ketu conjunct Moon in Leo, 11th house that I could study for myself? Im just an amateur who studied this for a long time and my interest lies in Vedic Astrology according to Raman, which I have found to the most exact in describing my previous life up til now.

I appologize for the long explanation and hope you will find some time to write me back.

Best Regards

Dear Kshitij Sharma
It is an interesting article. Thank you for the article and thanks to S.Anand and SundaraVadanam for good responses.
I came across this article while searching on Google.
Soon I am sending in my response.
Request the learned friends to provide their valuable views.

In my experience, I observed a few following w.r.t. Rahu and Ketu.

Rahu in Lagna of a male native and Ketu in Lagna of a female native usually delays the marriage.
This is too general a statement. We need to consider other things like placement of rahu and ketu in sign, house, star etc., association with other planets and aspects.

Rahu in Second house has shown split personality traits in natives.
I have seen some horoscopes with Ketu in Second house. But could draw a few conclusions. Ketu being moksha karaka, a native with Ketu in second house seems to be lacking interest in family(second being kutumba sthana).

Dear sir,

I have Rahu in the 12th house with Gemini, it is aspected by Venus and Mercury creating two raja yogas. Venus and Mercury are conjunct in the 3rd house in Virgo. Does that mean that Rahu becomes benefic? Does Rahu give similar results as Ketu? I am trying to find out if that actually creates a Moksha karaka.

If there is a benefic in Vyaya, while its Lord is exalted, or is yuti with, or receives a Dṛṣṭi from a benefic, one will attain final
emancipation. [BPHS 23.10]

● One will attain full enlightenment if Ketu is in the 12th [from Karakāṁśā] identical with Meṣa or Dhanuḥ and receives a Dṛṣṭi from a benefic.

● [Budha] in Sabhā [Avasthā] and happens to be in exaltation, will be affluent and meritorious at all times, will be equal to Kuvera, or will be a king or a minister, will be devoted to Lord Viṣṇu and Lord Śiva, will be virtuous and will attain full enlightenment. [BPHS 45.76-86]

I am not sure how to calculate the last one. I am brand new to Jyotish. My Mercury is exalted.

My date and place of birth is:

October, 18, 1982

Country: Kazakhstan

I also have Ketu in conjunction to my Sun AND my Black Moon Lilith in the 5th house Virgo, all 3 trine my Ascendant (Taurus) and oppose my Rahu in Pisces..

I read that Ketu relating to Jupiter is benefic, so here goes my question..

Jupiter in Gemini fall in my first house, since Ketu trines Ascendant.. how does this explain itself?

is it good? bad? VERY confused!

I am 48 yrs of age. My life is at a standstill since last so many years. Marriage is on verge of collapsing. Every time the astrologers give diff. reasons and askme to do some puja but things have not changed. My belief in God has seen me through all this time. Would be greatful if someone can explain why things happen inspite of doing all things possible.

Please read I like to deny the prsumption all things associated with rahu and kethu are bad in my previous message

Dr Roopa Venktesh Says:
March 23rd, 2008 at 2:29 pm

Dear and Respected sundaravandanamji..Rahu and kethu’s effects you have described are appropriate..and i feel i have felt them…
My rahu is in the ascendant in Vrischika
Kethu in seventh house along with moon in vrishabha rasi…

This is one of the few websites which enumerates the accuracy of Rahu and kethu’s results.Most ignorant astrologers say it is bad to have Rahu and kethu in any house..Like all natural benefics the Rahu and kethu have both great good and great miserable effects which are dependent on strenghths/positions/placements and some valuable analytical methods such as this website mentions.I like to deny that…..The article by kshitij Ji and responses are good enough to disprove the false theories about rahu and kethu

nice site i must say and quite informative.i want to know about how rahu and ketu affect my life as i am currently running rahu mahadasha.i am giving my birth details-18/11/75— rahu is in 12th house along with mercury in libra.i was told that it is the pakka ghar of rahu.i dont know if this is good or bad.please also let me know when i will get married.thank you

SundaraVadanam Says:
March 14th, 2008 at 2:11 am

Very nice site,The whole night i was in this site. Good discussions, Most of them are in the mood of asking a prediction on their own horoscope. however it’s natural.
I just want to share my few experience and observation made especially on Rahu-Ketu. After this perhaps many may able to understand about their own Rahu-Ketu.
Wherever u see in your horoscope, where ketu sits- that house gains a wandering or non-satisfied or unfulfilled task keep doing till end of your life. for eg. If it is posited in lagna; u will be most interested in your own self make-up things/self centered/self developement; Say if it is posited in 2nd house u will be wandering for money and ur thought will be always about having liquid cash in your savings; Suppose ketu occupy your 4th house u will never satisfy with your property-even after taking moderate amount of property u will be towards property making.
To understand this – logic is simple- ketu being hallow ‘randhara’ keep swallowing all it gets to fulfill the hallowness- but it never happens- am i confusing or u can follow me? same way take 10th house the house of job- the person wanted more in his job, hard working, am i correct- belive me all are tested over atleast 200 horoscopes.
please apply these logic u will understand about ur Mr.Ketu and where he is driving u to!!
Now coming to our Rahu- he is a self satisfied person, as told above- as he already tasted the nector he is immortal- so the logic here is he is not worried about his death[even vishnu chakra could not kill him!!]-everliving- by any sort of method- shortcuts etc.,to achive his goal-everliving;
So, If Rahu is posited in lagna – the person never bothered about himself- he thinks himself as king like- enjoing whatever comes in his way. If in 2nd house not much worried about the liquid cash- but whenever cash requirement comes-he will get somehow without much strain; If in the 4th house not worried about property making-because, somehow, some property will come to his name without much effort from him. Same way take the 10th house placement-No much effort or hard work will be there, happy going job or business will be there. Hope i am to some extent given some rough idea about our Mr.Rahu.
So goahead and apply these logic and understand about your Rahu-Ketu placements.
Infact they make u enjoy [Rahu]and make you to work [Ketu]towards the house they own. If any body with some knowledge on the ‘karakas’ of these houses can easily apply the logic of Rahu-Ketu.
My salute to my friends Rahu&Ketu.
Belive me i am not a demon.

does neech-bhanga raj yoga really exist?
if moon and mars are in cacer and if that
is the eighth house, it would surely not be
a neechbhanga rajayoga, but would it be
only neechbhanga? what’s the difference
between neech bhanga and neechbhanga raj yoga?
does venus mercury in the 10th house in virgo
offer neecha bhanga yoga?

This is a good breif all beginners could follow.

You have mentioned what rahu in the 1st house could bestow. I believe Osama Bin Laden’s most commonly accepted birth details indicate this. I have read that a Moon conjunct Rahu in 7th house of a Meena Lagna Navamsha (where Moon is involved in a house parivartana with Budh) reflects a mental instability, a bordering psychotic case!!! I can’t really rule out some amount of eccentricity in my dear friend – LOL!Is this generalization? If no, does a good Jupiter help in mitigating the effects. Also there seems to be a Adhi yoga in this native’s Lagna chart with Jupiter conjunct Venus (also Saturn) in 7th house Kanya and Mercury conjunct Sun in 6th house.

I’d feel extremely indebted if you could help me understand this aspect.

I have Rahu in 9th, and have been extremely lucky from this. I truly feel I am under divine protection of some sort – and probably the placement of Rahu in the 9th has much to do with it.

Otherwise, I personally believe that Rahu is much more malign than Saturn. I have noticed that when people have gone through their most difficult periods in life, it has been under a bad Rahu.

S. ANAND Says:
December 20th, 2007 at 5:35 am

(Kshitij, would you please email this to Mr. Muralidharan Bhoovaraghavan)

Dear Thiru Murali

The problem that you see in your chart is something rampant among horoscopes belonging to Tamil people or horoscopes cast by Tamil Nadu astrologers. The error arises because two panchangams are in vogue in Tamil Nadu: drig-ganitha panchangam and vakya panchangam.
Drig-ganitham is more accurate.

I use a drig-ganitha software, and your lagna is Karkatagam, with Navamsa lagnam in Magaram. If birth time is 8 mins earlier or 5 min 50 seconds later the navamsa lagna changes.

Rahu is on 0 deg 12 mins of Simham, and will move to Katagam after 6 days.

All the above calculations are as per Lahiri Ayanamsa.

Based on some conversations with some erudite astrologers, I have learned that Raman ayanamsa is followed in Tamil Nadu and apparently this value is built in the vakya panchangam.. Under this, your Navamsa lagna is Kumbham, BUT if birth were 13 seconds earlier, then it would have still been Makaram. I would stick to Makaram because the time difference is too short to estimate.

On your other questions: Venus is retrograde and Rahu is in Simha, as per both Lahiri and Raman ayanamsha.

Composite vakya panchangams are available at leading stores like Giri Trading (Head Office in Madras). These cost a bit, but have panchanga details in sets of 30 years. So you can buy a set which includes the year 1980. The Kanchi Kamakoti Matham in Kanchipuram, with HH Sri Jayendra Saraswati Swamigal as Sankaracharya, publishes drig ganitha panchangams. You may write to them and procure your birth year’s panchangam if possible.

Hello Kshitij-ji,

Google search brought me onto ur website. Especially this article on Rahu-Ketu. Moreover, the pin pointed predictions that you have given to various visitors is also gr8. Atleast that can be said by the way they respond to your replies. I also understand that you dont charge a penny for your services, well, and mostly the astrologer i have met in person (paid service) where not that effective/ good/ detailed/ trust worthy. But in ur case the feedbacks u have down on this page are prrof in them selves.

I have questions for you about myself, but if you want to charge anything for the same, do let me know. I wont step back. Will do whatever is necessary to proceed.

Many Thanks

Dear Kshitij-ji,

Don’t you ever get tired of selfish requests by these individuals for a free reading of their horoscopes? One would think that they are in dire poverty for not having enough money to afford paying for proper astrological services lol…

Your article is interesting, though I’m a bit dubious of Rahu and Ketu ever gaining exaltations/strength in any sign. My reasoning being that they do not own any rashi at all, so what makes them better in one as opposed to another? Shouldn’t it be that whether Rahu be in Gemini 1st house or Taurus 1st house, the individual will feel its +ve and -ve effects anyway, in addition to aspects from other planets?

Taken by mean value, they are in lagna/7th house but by true values they go to 2nd/8th houses. Please clarify. And what shall be the effects, good or bad, for me. My professional life is a disaster, and consequently everything else too.
I shall be really thankful if you could guide me.I am also trying to learn astrology.

Dear Astrologer,
You are brilliant and terrific. That prediction was on dot and precise. By the way what’s your name? I am highly impressed by your prediction. What none of the astrologers could tell that you have.

Thank you and if you can please tell me what events will happen to me in near future?

astrologer Says:
November 19th, 2007 at 7:58 pm

Dear Arvind,

You have too many planets in your first house.

as said the good effect will be only seen if there is a certain permutation and combination of planets.

In your case you have planets nulifing each other which leaves only mercury strong.

Hence if I am not wrong, you may be seeking for a job now but since moon in the 8th house will prevent you to focus in a proper way and also will try and deveate you from your destined choice of profession.

Hence would advise you to listen and follow profession as advised by brother and father.

Aries Lagna – Kethu
Jupiter-2nd House
Sat & Moon – 4th House
Mercury-6th House
Rahu, Mars & Sun – 7th House (Libra)
Venus – 8th house

I got married during Ven-Ven Dasa. It was a whielwind romance ending in marriage. My wife has debilatated Mars in her the 7th, which supposedly cancels our “Manglik Dosham” but my question is, will Rahu in the 7th cause us different problems. I’m running Sade-sathi & she just started hers (Kanya Rashi). My fears are that the current ingress of Saturn in Leo will be difficult for us…Also having a debilated 5th lord: Will it affect our children bearing potential? How will Rahu’s effect be on us being in Libra? Can anyone please tell me what to expect and how to overcome our issues, if any ?

Hi, I am a new and humble student of astrolgy and am currently struggling with the meaning and implications of Rahu Ketu in birth charts. Your article illuminated the way and i feel i have a little bit of a grip (one can never claim to have total understanding) on the nature and the effects of this house.

S. ANAND Says:
August 7th, 2007 at 11:55 pm


The best houses for malefics to own are Kendras and the best houses for them to be located are Upachaya houses (3, 6, 10, 11). So, if you have Ketu in the 3rd (an upachaya house) it is good, Rahu will be in the 9th (a trikona) as you have correctly noted.

Dr. BV Raman states in his book “Astrology for Beginners” : Planets in trikonas will not do bad. Planets in kendras always do good. (I am assuming this is culled from Jataka Chandrika)

As Rahu is a natural malefic, he will affect the indications of the 9th house. For eg, if Rahu is a malefic in the chart, then in the 9th he will affect the father, guru, general luck, indicate family sins, the person will go against the dictates of his religion, commit apostasy, and do all adharmic things. But this is a very very general statement.

Depending upon whose house it is, Rahu will behave accordingly since aprakasha grahas take up the nature of the rashi lord. You will have to see the strength of the 9th house, the karaka (Sun), Rahu’s star lord and his disposition, and all their dispositions in the navamsha chart. Aspects from Jupiter and Venus are also important.

What Kshitij has done is to merely state combinations which are found in the classical astrological texts. A verbatim application to charts is dangerous. A thorough analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the chart is a must before pronouncing judgement on how a particular planet will operate.
