Predictions 2022 – 23 Rahu in Aries and Ketu in Libra

The Chhaya graha are presently in the Taurus Scorpio axis. Taurus is one of the most conducive environments for Rahu and similarly Scorpio is one of Ketu’s favoured haunts, they are practically exalted here. They transit in the retrograde motion so true Rahu and true Ketu will be transiting through Aries and Libra respectively from 17th Mar 2022 to 29th Nov 2023. This is a significant transit of about 20.5 months, which is longer than their average transit of about 18months. (For the mean nodal positions, the tranit is from 12th Apr 2022 to 29th Nov 2023.) If you observe their effects in their recent transits, they have been raining pain on the world ever since their Gemini Sagittarius transit. And this has continued strongly during their Taurus Scorpio phase too.

To make sense of what their current transit, first try to think back on what happened in the world and in your personal life during their last sojourn here, ie from Apr 2003 to Mar 2005.

  • At the global levels we saw the launch of Facebook, NASA reached Mars, private players reached space, Macedonia, Haiti, Ukraine, Spain, USA, India, etc went through political upheavals for several reasons, NATO expanded, European Union expanded, Hurricane Catrina took her toll, the Indian ocean earthquake/tsunami caused tragedy etc.
  • For our Bharat, it was all topsy turvy. Our national election yielded a surprise PM with tainted politicians brazenly in power. Veerappan was killed, Kanchi Shankaracharya was in jail, violence in JK and NE, achievements in sports, the Best Bakery case and the Tsunami disaster. And we had the best President ever and our market was bullish throughout this time.

If you analyse these past events carefully, you can pick up the underlying themes. Expansions of political and government structures by whatever means possible. A dramatic change in the leadership, unexpected people rising to power. A positive change in the economy as Rahu’s exit from Taurus allowed the markets to regain common sense. Significant confusion in the legal system as Ketu went to Libra. And several natural disasters as the very elements, air, water, earth were against us.


As always, transits of Rahu and Ketu bring up dramatic changes in life, ie new opportunities open up as some fruits of past karma come up for resolution. During their stay in Aries Libra 2022-23, the lunar nodes will be influenced by the signs, their component nakshatra and the intermittent conjunctions/ aspects of the other planets.

Rahu in Aries. the natural 1st house of the zodiac. Let’s add the keywords here, a pioneering mindset, physical ability, confidence, movement, invasions, explorations, etc now enhanced by Rahu’s endless desire to experience it all. Aries is composed of the Ashvini, Bharani and Krutika nakshatra.

  • Rahu will be aspected by Saturn from 29th Apr to 12th Jul 2022 and will again come under Saturn’s aspect from 17th Jan to Nov 2023. This will be an especially traumatic time, this combination is also called a Shapit dosh with its typical results.
  • Rahu will be conjunct Jupiter from 22nd Apr to 29th Nov 2023. This is a Guru chandal yog operating with its own typical results.
  • Mars will be aspecting True Rahu from 12th Mar to 7th Apr. They will be conjunct from 27th Jun to 10th Aug. And Mars will aspect him again from 3rd Oct to 16th Nov 2023. This will again be an exceptionally dangerous time.

Ketu in Libra, the natural 7th house which represents balance, equitable relationships, marriages, law and legal issues, bargains, partnerships, gains through business etc now affected by Ketu’s apathy, disinterest and yet his typical deep philosophical tilt. Libra is composed of the Chitra, Svati and Vishakha nakshatras.

  • Jupiter will aspect Ketu from 22nd Apr – 29th Nov 2023. This will be a favourable time for spiritual aspirants but will give pain on the material level.
  • Mars will be aspecting Ketu with his 4th aspect during 17th May – 27th Jun. And he continue doing so, when conjunct Rahu ie from 27th Jun – 10th Aug. Mars will again aspect Ketu from 10th May – 1st Jul 2023 and then they will be be together from 3rd Oct – 16th Nov 2023. These times will be very dangerous on several levels as aggression is enhanced.

In all this, we will experience the eclipses where Sun or Moon will be together with Rahu or Ketu. The nodes move in the forward direction and also remainstationary during eclipses. The eclipse energies will be active during Apr – May and Oct – Nov 2022. Also again during Apr – May and Oct 2023 again triggering pending karma on several levels.

The time when Rahu will be in Ashvini and Ketu in Svati nakshatra will be exceptional in some way. If Rahu and Ketu are favourable for your chart, they will grant some very significant progress, but if they are poised for negative results then they will ensure karma is balanced in whatever way possible.

A general interpretation for this transit would be something like this. Selfishness, aggressiveness will increase, there will be furious fights over trivial issues. Religious fanaticism and racism will increase. Breakdown of relationships, loss of pleasure in interpersonal relationships. This is not a good time to create new relationships and carelessness and stupid behaviour can break existing relations for ever. Increase in deviant sexual activities, misuse of drugs and hallucinogens. Corruption and crime will increase, especially the crimes against women. Genuine spirituality will increase for some of us but the path will be difficult, through material pain.

Expect forest fires, followed by cyclones, excessive rain and a very cold winter as all the seasons are going to be extreme. So drought and flooding both are expected. Earthquakes and volcanic disasters are also possible in this time. For our nation, cyclones are imminent on all the coasts, especially the east coast should be prepared.

War situations will be active, internal civil wars are possible, borders will be breached. Every nation will think only for itself and try to damage other nations who affect their national interests. Civil tensions will increase so expect acts of terrorism from fanatics, ie bombings etc. Those nations who have misused the global financial network will face repercussions as their economy will slow down eg USA. Generally the world to the west of Bharat will suffer more than the nations to our east. The west is on a slippery slope and should be careful.

Whenever Saturn or Mars aspect Rahu or Ketu in transit, there will be an exponential increase in the turmoil at the global and local levels, expect bombings, attacks, terrorism, fire related accidents etc. These times will be very dangerous as world leaders will actively use underhand means to destabilise others and the fall out on the global level will be high. Rahu Ketu are subjective energies and Saturn Mars are their objective counterparts so if they get together in some way they are capable of causing havoc on both physical and astral levels. Overall ‘separation’ on several levels is expected.

Whenever Jupiter will be influencing Rahu and Ketu, expect a positive increase in the economy, especially cryptocurrency and gold trading will see a rise. Spirituality will see an increase as people will try to make sense of what is happening around them.


Briefly the predictions for the signs.

These are based on your birth Moon sign, as the Moon determines the timing and fructification of karma. But if your Ascendant sign is strong, then you can blend the results to gain a better picture of what is expected. These results are only those which can be ascertained from the position of Rahu and Ketu. (I have written a separate post combining the results of Rahu, Ketu, Saturn, Jupiter.)

Aries – Finances will be affected, budgeting is necessary. Not a good time to invest in long term assets. Personal health will be a concern, so do not delay in consulting medical professionals. Occult, astral and issues from the ancestors will erupt. Health of the parents will be a concern. There will be some estrangement from the spouse. Avoid short term flings. Try to find happiness in your children/ students.

Taurus – You will be required to relocate in some way, either a new job, residence or transfer to foreign locations is indicated. There will be mental and physical stresses. Managing resources properly is necessary, do not lend money to others in this time. If your Ketu is stronger than Rahu then this time can be average to good as your enemies will be scattered, your debts will be non existent and your health will remain good. You might suffer due to the nebulous occult but you will be able to manage it well.
Doing pujas of your adored deity can greatly alleviate things.

Gemini – Rahu has the capacity to give good results with respect to gains, friends and social visibility. You may be required to relocate to foreign or strange places during this time. Loss of ancestral properties and heavy loans is possible. Ketu can grant intelligence and ability to think clearly. This can help if you are in working in such professions. Expect stress from children. Take care of your diet.

Cancer – If your birth chart is strong enough you can expect some positivity in your profession, however the overall period will be tedious. Unexpected transfers are possible which will force you to go to foreign environments. Physical deaths of elders especially on the paternal side are possible. Make sure to decide on matters only after you think things through. Do not gamble or invest in risky prospects. If Ketu is favourable then spiritual inclinations will increase.

Leo – Financial problems will exist but you will be able to tackle them fearlessly. You might feel inclined to practice occult or convert into another religion or change your thought processes. Timely luck and overall support in life will reduce. But still you will manage to pull through by harnessing your personal courage and logical mind.

Virgo – There will be problems and losses from several fronts in life. Mainly the physical and emotional heath will suffer. People whom you trust will betray you. There may be physical deaths of close relatives during this time. Diseases of the mouth, difficultly in speaking coherently, stammering, etc are possible. There will be a scarcity of essential stuff in your life, home life is afflicted.

Libra – Avoid getting into situations where you have to compromise with your position. Your self-confidence will be low and there will be a tendency to argue for no reason, you will be irritable. Break up with the marriage or business partner is likely. Avoid flings as they will cause more trouble. Skin disease, discolouration and scarring is possible. Injuries due to accidents, fire and surgeries are likely. You will become more spiritual during this time. Those in professions/ business connected to heavy metals can see some gains during this time.

Scorpio – Rahu is generally favourable for you, more than Ketu. Your enemies will be decimated, money issues will be sorted out and there will be relief from disease. There is a possibility of gain from foreign sources. However you may be accused for things which you have not done, so ensure that you behave in an ethical manner always. If Ketu is stronger in your chart then he can grant intense spiritual experiences.

Sagittarius – Money flow will be adequate but there will be a tendency to spend on unnecessary items, so budgeting is necessary. Important decisions should be taken only after thinking over issues dispassionately. Health of the children and the older sibling can be an issue. If your Ketu is stronger than Rahu then this time can be good for you. Perform pujas of your adored deity and try to cooperate with the female members of your family.

Capricorn – Health will be an issue as overwork and lack of rest take their toll. You may face some problems from your landed property and house. Separation from the mother or some close maternal relative is possible or you may be forced to leave your native lands. Be careful while travelling, avoid rash behaviour on the roads. For students this is not a good time as you might fail to concentrate on you studies. There is a possibility of going for pilgrimages and performing religious activities.

Aquarius – Rahu will grant a good time, there are opportunities coming up but evaluate everything before taking the plunge. Money should be adequate, friends will be around and family life will be happy. However try stick to your ethics and morals to avoid issues later. There may be some trouble from the in-laws. Also avoid travelling without a purpose. The difficulties faced by you during this time will help you gain a new perspective on the spiritual and philosophical levels.

Pisces – Expenditure will increase, think twice before you spend your money on unnecessary things. Self esteem and confidence might take a hit as you might feel afraid for no good reason. Health will be affected, fever, food poisoning etc can occur. There will be quarrels in your family but your spouse will be generally supportive. You can try to learn music, singing and doing pujas at temples to channelise the energies.

These general readings will be modified as per the individual chart and the ongoing Dasha periods. If you have your birth Rahu Ketu in Aries/Libra then the effects will be more intense. Or if you are undergoing a Dasha period of Rahu or Ketu.

Remedies are as always Dana and Mantra. Also behavioural changes as you intelligently try to use the energies of the time coming up. If you are doing some regular spiritual practice then the remedies will work more effectively.

A rare astrological event in Sept 2020

A very short post today.

A rare astrological event is coming up for two days, from tomorrow ie 10:45am on 13th Sep to 2pm on 15th Sep. The 6 graha, ie the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will all be in the signs which they own themselves. Rahu and Ketu are respectively in Gemini and Sagittarius. So except Venus, all graha are in their Swa-kshetra, own houses and capable of giving good results.

But Mars though in Aries is retrograde, the ability to take advantage of the energy created is not really there. His energy is turned inwards rather than outwards. So most of us will be rather lethargic when in fact decisive action is required. But some of us will be able to take advantage of what is coming up. Especially if your Birth Mars is retrograde or exalted or placed well you can benefit more. 

If you have noticed these past few days, Mars was moving extremely slowly, practically stationary, then stationary and he started his retrograde movement on 9th Sept. So from 9th to 13th morning, the three outer planets were moving weirdly together.

  • Mars moving very very slowly retrograde.
  • Jupiter stationary, on the verge of going forward (he goes forward on 13th Sep morning.)
  • Saturn slowing down in his retrograde motion (he goes forward on 29th Sept)

The energy generated was so dense, no other word to describe it. Time, its very movement, had changed its speed.

I wonder if you note this, our sense of time is dependent on the movements of the planets. Sometimes time seems to stand still, go very fast or else crawl along or rarely seem to rewind too. This personal sense of time is dependent on the transits of the planets. People who are highly influenced by Saturn (either in birth chart or in transit) will have this maximum ‘sense’ of Time.

Scorpio and its Strange Karma

So Jupiter becomes forward tomorrow morning. And we have this unique opportunity coming up for 2.25days immediately after that. So make use of the time coming up.

Technically it is Pitru-paksh going on, the souls of the departed ancestors are back on this dimension, Martya-lok for 16days. During the Pitru-paksh period, no pujas are performed. ie you cannot get a Brahmin/ Pujari to come over for doing Nav-graha puja or Shanti-homa or anything of this sort. Pitru-paksh, is from the Purnima/full moon to the No-moon./Amavasya of the of Bhadrapad month. Only tarpan-vidhi are possible and are performed for the departed ancestors. This is their time. The energy generated is suitable only for the departed ancestors not for the deities or living people. (For me personally this is a very tedious time as all my dead ancestors, from my Mom to the others are back demanding my time as I sleep at night. Can’t wait for this window to shut on the No-Moon/Sarva-pitri Amavasya.)

So you can do any of these following as a personal practice in your own house, sitting in front of your household deities/puja ghar. eg Recite the Gayatri mantra 108 times, do your Dhyan using your personal Dhyan mantra (Soham or Hamsa or OM), recite the mantra, shloka, stotra of the planets, deities you like etc. If you cannot do anything at all, then mentally recite the Soham or Hamsa or Om with your breath whenever you can. Use the energy of the coming time to strengthen your own self in any way you can. If you strengthen yourself on the spiritual front you gain the energy to drive your material outer world too. The source of all energy within is reflected in the without.

Then on 23rd Sep, Ketu finally enters Scorpio leaving Jupiter alone in Sagittarius. Jupiter will be here till 20th Nov after which he goes into Capricorn and gets debilitated again. And Saturn will be turn forward from 29th Sept. This is the real window of opportunity about 1.5 mths where Jupiter and Saturn both are capable of giving powerful results. One thing to remember is that Mars will be retrograde till 14th Nov, so most of us will feel the lethargy and not act with confidence to grasp what will be offered. The energy release will be so high that whatever you have lost in this rather traumatic Ketu in Sagittarius transit, will be converted to auspicious benefits. So try to remain aware and act this period. You can trigger positive changes for yourself which will give significant gains after Dec 2020.

Plan your day using the Choghadiya

Rahu Ketu transit in Taurus Scorpio 2020-22

Rahu and Ketu transit through the signs at every 1yr 6mth intervals. They are permanently retrograde so will shift from Gemini – Sagittarius and enter Taurus – Scorpio respectively on 23rd Sep 2020. They will remain here till 12th Apr 2022. (These dates are from the Drik panchang app.)

While these two were in Gemini-Sagittarius, they wrecked havoc in the world, culminating with the COVID 19 crisis (post here). Now they are onward or rather backward with Taurus-Rahu and Scorpio-Ketu. Their perpetual retrograde motion means that they teach life lessons very thoroughly, revise, redo, reanalyse, repeat them again and again.  I have written on transits of Rahu/Ketu earlier (post here).

First try to remember what had happened in your life during their previous transit during Feb 2002- Sep 2003. Expect something on the same lines to happen again though their mode of operation will be slightly different.

If you remember the global events 18yrs ago. There was economic collapse coupled with joblessness, financial turmoil, industrial stagnation, bankruptcy of several big companies. Volcanic eruptions, wildfires, oil spills, earthquakes and tornadoes. The European Union expanded. Then expansion of NATO, invasion of Iraq etc. ENRON officers were indicted, euthanasia was approved etc. Terrorist attacks, hostage situations, communal riots. Human Genome project was successful. Columbia space shuttle disaster. China’s successful manned space flight. A happening time back with a mixed bag of events which had a lasting impact on the world mind. Economy, resources, technology, catastrophes, secrets etc were the keywords typical of Mars, Venus, Rahu and Ketu interactions.

Rahu Ketu transit in Taurus Scorpio 2020-22

Rahu’s transit in Taurus, will cover the lunar mansions, Mruga, Rohini and Krutika. The 2nd sign of the natural zodiac, Taurus is ruled by Venus. 

  • Rahu and Ketu are quite powerful in these two signs, practically exalted (post here). Whatever will happen to you during this period from Sept 2020 to Mar 2022 will be intense and will leave a lasting impression.
  • During this transit, Rahu in Taurus will be aspected by the debilitated Jupiter in Capricorn for some months, but this aspect does not help much as a powerful Saturn himself is occupying his own sign Capricorn. So expect Rahu to get busy in Taurus without effective supervision.
  • Taurus is an earthy sign, it is a trader, indicates the accumulated resources, stored wealth, good times with close family /friends, etc. Rahu in this sign ordinarily can bring in stability and an increase in things indicated by Taurus. For several of us, depending on the individual charts, this will bring stability, prosperity, marriage and increase.
  • But Rahu is the trickster so in the sign of stored resources, he needs to be controlled carefully. His illusions and overreach have to be understood. If you get carried away and act rashly under his influence, you can lose your money. You might be tempted to over-spend, invest in risky ventures, buy unnecessary luxury items, etc. So budgeting is necessary. Spend carefully and invest in safe projects. Do not cheat others and remain alert so that you don’t get cheated yourself. Avoid giving loans and taking loans unless the contract terms are clear.
  • You might feel more creative and versatile. If your job involves, banking, art, food, speaking, etc you will get opportunities to showcase yourself. 
  • Do not lie or use bad language as Rahu in the house of speech can make you go overboard with swear words etc. Better use this time to learn a new foreign language instead. Or learn to sing? The secret with remedies is to understand the energies and using them for your benefit.
  • Addictions like alcohol, drugs, even eating overly sweet stuff are quite possible. So keep control over the food you eat. Eat a sensible balanced diet and avoid intoxicants as you might fall ill later. Obesity, diabetes etc generally are a side-effect of this position.
  • Diseases to the organs indicated by Taurus are possible, ie the neck, shoulders, ears, throat, voice etc will be susceptible.
  • Families can get ‘unusual’. Relationships across religions, nations and ethnicities will find more acceptance initially. Later toward the end of the transit, these situations might end in negativity. So if you plan to get married in these few months, be very clear and not carried away by wishful thinking. You might face criticism by your family members.
  • Children who will be born during next 18 months might be short-tempered, unnecessarily emotional and might not be able to forge lasting relationships in their family/ friend circles.
  • On the global level, this Rahu will affect the economy in several ways. Financial crimes will increase as people take risks with their stored savings. Expect cyber-attacks on financial institutions, eg viruses which affect their systems. Both private and public wealth resources will seem to increase first but will later diminish. Governments will have to spend to save their economy which will conversely hit their treasuries. Unproductive spending will increase. Speculation will increase till the bubble bursts. The trick is to be aware and not take rash steps or believe in things ‘too good to be true’.

One good thing is that as Rahu/Ketu shift backwards, Jupiter will be occupying his own Sagittarius in forward motion. Saturn too will become forward in his own Capricorn. This will give a burst of energy in everyone’s life till about the end of Nov. So use this time, as Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu all are very powerful. You might get unexpected opportunities to really jump upwards spectacularly. This will be a crucial time for many of us.

Snakes and the Nakshatra yoni animals

Now Scorpio ruled by Mars is Ketu’s favoured environment, but it can get dangerous. The agent of separation in the house of catastrophic changes. Here the Nakshatra involved are Jeyshtha, Anuradha and Vishakha.

  • Ketu is very comfortable in Scorpio because its keywords, the occult, separation, death, inner worlds, secrets, nadi-pran networks, the psychological, mystery, research, exploration, loneliness, depth, complexity, trauma and revenge are suitable to his fiery dissociative nature.
  • Ketu in Scorpio is exceptional for people who are into these typical aspects of life. So if you are a surgeon, researcher, a student of pure science, theoretical scientist, working in a lab with viruses, into the occult, a spiritual aspirant, tantrik, explorer, someone who resolves conflicts, psychologist, spy, soldier etc then you will be offered opportunities to advance. Ketu’s rare incisive intelligence will help you find hidden meanings, ancient secrets and help you work in trauma-filled environments.
  • This placement will generally give everyone determination to succeed in their goals. Ketu is tenacious in a disinterested, egoless way. So he gives a different type of confidence coupled with fearlessness. You work on your instinct and know that you are right.
  • 8th house represents the family of the spouse. Ketu in Scorpio can cause separation from the in-laws.
  • For most of us, past life karma will be triggered and there will be several sudden changes in the inner world. These changes will be converted to the material depending on the personal horoscope and the transiting planets who will be aspecting/ conjunct this Ketu in Scorpio. (Saturn and Jupiter are not aspecting Ketu this time, but Mars Venus, Mercury, Sun, Moon will from time to time.)
  • For children being born with Ketu in Scorpio, these typical keywords will be reflected in their natures. They will have a mysterious complex nature, often loners and into secret stuff. They will be able to hide their real natures and can be deceptive. If you have children during this period, give them some spiritual foundation else life can get difficult for them.


For analysing Rahu/ Ketu,  the effects of the other planets conjunct or aspecting in transit must be evaluated as they gain power by association and trigger effects linked to those planets other too. Events linked to them are characterised by suddenness and unpredictability. Eg you might meet someone randomly who causes deep change in your life. Or some unexpected incident changes you forever. Keep an eye on the other planets who will periodically aspect them in transit. Rahu and Ketu do not directly give material stuff but trigger events from the astral, the sub-conscious, the psychological and the unseen parts of yourself. 

Rahu will be aspected from Capricorn by a debilitated Jupiter who is conjunct a powerful Saturn. So moral wrongs are possible which will have some sort of a karmic link. Things which go against the conscience will happen in personal life as well at global levels. 

Look out when Mars will aspect Ketu-Scorpio in transit. It will cause increased crime rates, threats, sudden deaths, violence, simmering situations which can explode spectacularly, suicides, civil riots, war-like situations, communal violence, suicide bombing, volcanoes, earthquakes etc. Mars in Aries, Taurus, Cancer and Scorpio will influence Ketu for the worse. (Retrograde Mars in Aries, post here). Also look out for when Mars will influence Rahu. This would cause similar violence. Mars will be influencing Rahu and Ketu both during Jan-Apr 2021 (Mars in Taurus) and Dec 2021-Jan 2022 (Mars in Scorpio), so these will be the most sensitive times. This will be reflected in personal lives as increased aggression, arguments, physical violence, road rage etc. Children born during these times can become radicals, terrorists and inclined towards violence.

While evaluating results on the global levels, remember that we had two energy-heavy total solar eclipses 26th Dec 2019 and 21st Jun 2020. So the nations which witnessed these eclipses will face a crunch in resources, recession, their global level image will go down, they will lose any conflicts that they get into, internal rebellion and unrest is also possible. Food and water supplies will be impacted. The negative readings of this Taurus-Scorpio transit will be felt more intensely by them. 

Among the signs, Virgo and Pisces will benefit from the Rahu-Ketu in Taurus-Scorpio. Especially so if you have these as your birth Moon sign. This will be seen as support from your dead ancestors or living elders, your peers in society, the past lives auspicious benefits will help, your Sat-guru or internal life philosophy will be with you in mysterious ways. This internal back-up will be translated into material results as per your individual charts planets influence on Rahu/Ketu. Capricorn, Cancer, Leo and Aquarius should have a reasonably good time. Gemini, Sagittarius, Libra, Aries have a mix of good and bad results, overall average. Obviously Taurus and Scorpio birth Moon signs will be the most affected signs. 

Now about the Corona COVID 19 crisis. I had predicted in my post on ‘Rahu-Ketu in Gemini-Sagittarius’ that there were be “Increase diseases related chest, heart and lungs. Also incurable and strange diseases will increase. Faulty diagnosis will increase and inappropriate medication given.” This is now the past. In the future upcoming transit, Ketu in Scorpio specifically, will help the necessary research for vaccines, medicines, etc needed to successfully combat the virus. Things will improve on global health front. However one should be careful while the upcoming Mars retrograde is on. The economic impacts of the lockdowns will continue till Rahu remains in Taurus. (Only when Saturn shifts to Aquarius, will the financial situation stabilise.)


You have to analyse your own horoscope, so you can use the Ashtapadmadala chart, the Janma-navtara chart, the Ashtakvarga chart etc as per your level of study. In addition, try to think of the following and how it will affect you on the individual levels.

  • In your birth chart, locate where Rahu is placed, the house/ sign/ planets linked to him. The keywords connected to these are the desires you wish to experience in this life. Then Ketu’s location will similarly indicate your deepest disinterest and simultaneously your instinct and deepest learnings. First try to know what they mean in your chart.
  • If your birth chart has a complete or a partial kaal sarpa combination, then the effects of Rahu/ Ketu are intensified. 
  • If Rahu/Ketu are conjunct several planets in your chart then naturally their effects are going to be more evident.
  • Check out which Mahadasha/Main period and antardasha/sub-period you are undergoing as per the Vimshottari system. This will give the general background of your life at the moment. If you are undergoing periods of Ketu or Rahu then be careful.
  • Which houses in your chart will Rahu/ Ketu occupying during their transit now? i.e Where are Taurus and Scorpio in your birth chart? This will tell you which karma you are going to be pulled towards/ Rahu, and which aspects of life you are going to be separated from/ Ketu. (Refer this post.)
  • If your age is the multiples of 18 yrs, this is Rahu/ Ketu return as they will occupy the same position as your birth chart. Extremely karmic events will unfold while they are doing their ‘return’.
  • The other planets will also transit over Rahu/Ketu for shorter periods modifying their results accordingly.

I have written several posts on Rahu/Ketu, their nature and real nature also on remedies, Mantra, Homa, donating stuff, etc (do use the index page to locate these posts). The easiest remedy is a 1/3/108 repeat of the beej mantras of Rahu/ Ketu on Tuesdays/Saturdays to help balance out their energies. And the best one is to understand how their energies work and use them intelligently to benefit.
