Rahu, the planet in shadows, is accorded recognition by the Indian astrologers and like Ketu, this planet is also not visible in the galaxy.

The fierce face of Rahu adorns a crown and a garland runs round his neck. Clad is black, the four shouldered Rahu sports sword, shield, Trishula and Varamudra in his four hands. He sits on a lion. As the faint trace of nectar made him immortal, Lord Brahma conferred upon him the status of a planet. The eight horse driven chariot of Rahu is darkness. The presiding deity of Rahu is Yama and Surya in his Pratyadhidevata. His position in the galaxy is south - westwards and it resembles a winnowing fan.

Born into paithenasa gotra, Rahu is fiendish in nature. He was born in the year parthiva (Rakshasa €“in some other books) inBhaadrapada maasa, Krishna paksha on the fourteenth day of the waving moon on a Sunday. Visakha is his birth star. Rahu dasa lasts for 18 years. He has no aura of his own as he is considered a "chaaya graha". At the intersecting points of lunar and solar circumferences, there are two dots. The northern dot is called Rahu or the dragon headed and the southern dot is referred to as dragon's tail. Rahu, like other planets does not preside over particular zodiac sign. Vrishabha lagna is his best place whereas vrishchika lagna is his worst. For Ketu, Vrishchika is the best place. Kanya rasi is his nature place.

Rahu lords over Aardra, Swathi and Satabhisha Nakshatras. Like Kuja and Sani, Rahu too yields favors when he is positioned in 3, 6 and 11th houses from the janma raasi.

Malefic effects of Rahu: Social backwardness, mental tension, misuse of power, electric shock, lack of interest, evil thoughts, bad dreams, trouble while in a foreign land, loss of money in vices, ill health, fear of thieves, legal hassles, possession of evil spirits to mention a few.

Beneficial effects: Command over foreign languages, courage, research, social service, interest in magic sciences, photography are some of the positive traits.

What Rahu likes most: To pacify Rahu, black gram should be given away. Caldera flowers, black lilies are used in his worship. Fishes, grapes, almonds, liquor, red sandal paste, 10 wick-lamp, graveyard land, panchaloha Rahu pratima, Gomedhika, blue clothes, marijuana lotus leaves and aluminium are some of the things used in Rahu puja.

To pacify Rahu, Gomedhika gem studded ring is to be worn. Wearing this finger ring leads to prosperity success, financial prosperity, education and good health.

Eclipses: Rahu and Ketu, if one is with sun and the other with the moon, then it is lunar eclipse. If the sun and the moon are with either Rahu or Ketu, then the solar eclipse occurs.
