Rahu/Ketu Transit 2014

By Kshitij Sharma, June 29, 2014

Find out how Rahu/Ketu transit of 2014 in Virgo and Pisces respectively will affect you according to the janma rashi. If I take the latitude and longitude of Bangalore, Rahu/Ketu will enter the signs around midnight of July 12/13 2014 and will stay in these signs for approximately one and a half year till 9 January 2016. Rahu and Ketu are mathematical entities exactly 180° apart. Therefore, when Rahu enters Virgo, Ketu enters Pisces. Both the transits have different effect on the individual as per his/her janma rashi as derived from the natal horoscope. While Rahu and Ketu are exactly 180° apart, it does not mean that an adverse transit of Rahu is beneficial transit for Ketu and vice-versa.

The rest of the article will try to delineate how the two transits of Rahu in Virgo and Ketu in Pisces. will simultaneously affect an individual. The sign in the first column is the janma rashi or the moon sign. If you do not know your moon sign, please first find it out through the horoscope software application on this page on the website. Subsequently, lookup this sign on the first column and find out the effect of the transit. If the transit is adverse, the necessary remedies to reduce the effects of Rahu and Ketu transits are detailed in the last part of this article.

Movement of Rahu and Ketu through the zodiac is pretty interesting. They are not real planets, but are mathematical points. They both move back in retrogression. Their movement and their mathematical nature is described here in this article on Rahu/Ketu and eclipses. Rahu and Ketu are in Libra and Aries respectively right now and they move backward to Virgo and Pisces respectively. Please note that this is a general affect of the transit and the results will be very specific to your birth horoscope. If there are “problems” indicated in the table below, the “problems” are defined by the location and result of Rahu/Ketu in the chart. If Rahu affects 5th house in the birth horoscope i.e., the natal chart, “problems” will be related to children, speculations and other factors shown by the 5th house.

Aries 6th House

Your health should be focus. Yoga, gym, exercises will help with afflicted help. 12th house transit of any planet is difficult. Seclusion, self doubt, distrust is a negative trait of this transit. There will be ambiguity and uncertainty at place of work.
Taurus 5th House
11th House
This transit thows erratic cash flow, but it will not go zero. The favourable Ketu transit will see to that. However, you cannot gamble with it. Rahu fritters away gains if we do not pay attention to our investments.
Love, gains, worries, pleasure will be driven through children and they will be in focus.

There is a loss of money and expenses. You will spend money on acquiring personal possessions. This will affect just not you, but your spouse as well. You need to be careful about your health and hard to diagnose diseases. You also need to control your speech otherwise things go out of control with respect of the family.
Virgo 1st House
7th House
You are self willed now and this means that you are going to look at yourself first and your family comes later. This can have a negative impact on the family. You need to be honest about yourself with the family. Do not let your reputation get damaged. There is a chance of lawsuits and expenses due to this.

Disputes can crop up the family, but at the same time it can be resolved easily as well. New opportunities in business/partnership will crop up, but since this is an adverse transit, you need to be very careful. There can be changes in job profile and you need to be careful.

For any of the adverse transits, the following remedies should be followed. Please note that is is just for Rahu and Ketu and are not customized for the sign as such. Specific remedies for the signs are better looked under monthly forecasts section, as the posts there will take care of other planetary transits and suggest better remedies.
