What is Rahu? Tips to Improve Rahu in Your Horoscope
Rahu is the north lunar node (ascending) and it along with Ketu is a "shadow planet" that causes eclipses. Rahu has no physical shape. It is an imaginary planet but considering the importance of Rahu in astrology, it has been allocated the status of the planet by Rishis. Rahu is known to confer malefic effects in general and is considered as a planet which induces laziness, delays, and hurdles in work. Rahu is known to reflect its shadow for 18 months in a zodiac. It can create confusion, depression and emotional imbalance if placed negatively in the horoscope. It is said that if Rahu sits in an auspicious position in the horoscope of a person, then luck is brightened. With this, the person attains sharp intellect. The native receives honour and fame in the society. It has friendly ties with planets like Venus, Mercury, and Saturn. The Moon and Sun are the enemy planets in which it is more averse to Sun.
