Rahu (North) and Ketu (South) Nodes of Moon in Astrology



Rahu and Ketu are two types of thoughts found within us. They are not ordinary snakes in Vedic literature, but specific serpents have a lot of knowledge and knowledge. The Moon is the mind and it thinks negative as well as positive. Rahu and Ketu are not planets but they are the shadow (positive and negative thoughts) of the Moon. They work on a person's subconscious level, which is why they are more helpful in understanding life than other planets. Without understanding the text of Rahu and Ketu, man cannot seek higher. They represent the darker side of our nature that we need to overcome. Our internal turmoil of emotions fighting with good and evil comes to some conclusion and accordingly we evolve in life.

The struggle between our attachment to materialistic achievements gives us momentary happiness which is a fantasy because it has no real basis, it is the work of Rahu. It is the work of Ketu to seek the liberation, bliss and peace of the soul which is eternal and everlasting, seeking spiritual realization and seeking salvation.

To understand life, man needs the help of these two forces to understand life, giving directions for development and knowledge for knowledge.

Rahu wishes for materialistic things in this life time. Rahu is passion, immature malevolent power, it is the unsatisfied desire in one's life, it wants things quickly and consumes everything. Rahu has no patience and it embodies the desire of your past life, which you want to achieve in this life. It creates a passion for something that creates chaos in one's life. Whatever Rahu wants comes after some chaotic conflict. If anyone wants to know what they want in this life or what they struggle in their life, then they should see where Rahu is placed in their birth chart.

All humans are at least insane in some way and Rahu signifies the field of life where we are a little unbalanced and obsessive in life. As long as we are influencing in our life, Rahu keeps us enamored until we are separated from him. Rahu represents our most powerful attachment and losing our higher self to the things of this world is the main reason we suffer in life. As long as we desire experience, Rahu's passion hurts a lot.


Ketu at the other end represents our past learning or past life. So Ketu energy tells that things we have already achieved in our previous life, we do not want to worry in this life. It does not care about material life and wants to get away from materialistic things. Ketu is a spiritual thinking within us and it makes a person spiritual. It shows the path of liberation by giving problems in materialistic life. Depending on the placement of Ketu in your birth chart, you don't really care about the things that the house represents. In Ketu Mahadasha, people become very spiritual and they also have mysterious experiences related to the effects of Ketu.
