Views on Rahu and Ketu

According to Phala Deepika, the benefic signs for Rahu are Taurus (Vrishabha), Cancer (Karka), Aries (Mesha), Scorpio (Vrischika) and Aquarius (Kumbha); and for Ketu these are Pisces (Meena), Virgo (Kanya), Taurus (Vrishabha) and the second half of aggitarius (Dhanu). Their enemies are said to be the Sun, Moon and Guru while Kuja is Neutral, Rahu function like Shani, and Ketu like Kuja. Jupiter (Guru) cannot be the foe of Ketu. Different opinions are given by different authorities.

Parasara and Jaimini make Aquarius (Kumbha) the own house of Rahu, while Ketu’s own house is Scorpio (Vrischika).

One authority states that Rahu is exalted in Mithuna, has own house and Mula – trikona in Kumbha. His exaltation degrees is 20. Others say that the Mula – trikona is Kanya and his enemies are Ravi, Chandra and Kuja.

Jaimini takes Ketu to be a benefic in certain contexts. This seems to be valid because Ketu is a Moksha Karaka. Then his friends are Ravi, Chandra, Kuja, and Guru. The others are the friends of Rahu.

The different views about their own house, exaltation and Mula-trikona are tabulated for a proper study and investigation by those interested in the subject.

In my own view based on my more than a decade of experience Rahu’s own house is Kumbha, exaltation is on 20o Mithuna, and Mula-trikona is Vrishabha (Taurus). Ketu’s own house is Vrischika, exaltation is on 6o of Dhanu (Saggitarius) and Mula – trikona is Vrischika (Scorpio). Guru with Rahu causes a Chandala yoga. Guru with Ketu gives Jnana and Moksha if situated in a favourable place. We associate Ketu with the friends Sun, Moon, Mars and Jupiter. The readers are requested to send their views for publication in this journal.

Human Body and Astrology

While practicing and researching astrology we come across many types of experiences which are typical by nature. Here we will try to discuss some of those typical aspects regarding the health and disease of a person.

The twelve bhavas indicate twelve aspects of life. Whole of our body is also divided into 12 parts – each of which is under the portfolio of each bhava. In this way the Ist house indicates general health, personality, appearances etc. along with the head specially.

The IInd house indicates the Throat and the adjacent area. The IIIrd house indicates the shoulders. The Chest is under the IVth house. The Vth indicates upper portion and the VIth lower part of the abdomen. The VIIth house is responsible for sex Organs, whereas the VIIIth indicates the rectal parts-hip portion. IXth corresponds to the upper part of the legs, Xth the Knees, XIth the lower part of the legs and XIIth indicates the foot portion of both the legs.

On the whole the nature of illness or the loss of health is indicated by the VIth house, while for the general health of a person we should concentrate upon the Lagna Bhava and Lagna Lord. We can’t expect good health if either of them is weak or influenced by malefics. Leo ascendant with 8th Lord Jupiter in it makes the native to have prone to mygrain or sinus troubles. Mars in the ascendant, which should be other than Aries, Leo, Scorpio or Capricorn, renders the native to have head injury. The degree of injury increases/decreases with the influence of malefic or benefic aspects respectively on the Ascendant. The native becomes physically strong, energetic and his resistance against diseases becomes very high, whenever the Lagna as well as the lord be well placed, well associated, and strong.

The 8th lord in the 6th house renders bad results as far as health is concerned i.e. Aquarius Lagna and Sun with Mercury in Cancer; the native has the “Buddhaditya Yoga” in the 6th in spite of the Yoga the native does not possess good health. She has faced bad diseases and has gone through operations more than ones in her forty years of age.

The illness in regard to upper portion of the abdomen of a native courses whenever malefics influence the Vth house. Rahu or Ketu in the Vth indicates gastric troubles on the native when studying the Palm, the blackish thing of the Palm or the broken liver line indicates loss of health due to liver troubles.

Mercury being the 6th or 8th and if associated with the 5th lord or the house, the native suffers severe headache. The 5th lord along with Mercury if associated with Saturn the native may suffer from brain Cancer. Example Aries Lagna with Moon in the Cancer, and Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter in Pisces. Here the 5th lord Sun is deposited along with the 6th Mercury and Saturn is associated with Jupiter in own house could not even help the situation.

Mercury in any house deposited in Moon star, the native generally suffers from Jaundice, in this respect I can site many examples such as Lagna in Pisces and Mercury in Taurus in Rohini at a time the native suffered from Jaundice for not less than two years.

Venus is the Lagna Lord as well as the 6th lord of Taurus Lagna; in this case if Venus is deposited in the 12th in own star Bharani or in the 8th in own star Purvasadha makes one prone to sex oriented diseases. Here the 6th lord Venus comes in the 8th which renders Rogakatya. Moreover the star lord is Venus so the chance of sex oriented disease is more.

Saturn if deposited in the Lagna with the same Pada of same Nakshatra renders the native a death after being bed-ridden for long time, example Cancer Lagna at 27.39 and Saturn in Cancer in 28 the Lagna as well as the Saturn are in the fourth Pada Charana or Aslesha. The native suffered from paralysis for eleven long years before her death.

The 6th lord along with another malefic in the Lagna without the deposition or aspect of Lagna Lord, renders typical diseases in typical Organs. If the 6th lord be Sun the diseases on the head, if it is Moon the diseases will be on the lips, in this way Mars renders in the throat and Mercury in the abdomen, if the aforesaid malefic with the 6th Lord be Rahu or Ketu the diseases will be in the liver.

Mars or Mercury being the Lagna Lord if becomes associated with Moon, Rahu or Saturn, the native suffers from skin diseases.

In case of the females horoscope and female diseases we must calculate the strength of the 5th & 7th houses, Mars or debilitated Venus in the 5th or 7th renders Gynocological problems. The native gives birth to a child through operation, whenever the 5th house is aspected or associated by Mars, debilitated Rahu, aspected by Mars in the 5th, renders childlessness to a female native.

In this way we see that the combination of different planets in different houses renders different types of diseases. WE will be able to help people more and more by studying and researching on this subject.
