Nine planets are counted in Indian astrology and mythology, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Guru, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu. According to astrology, the definition of each planet is different. In astrology, Rahu (Rahu) is a shadow planet that gives results according to the place and companion planet. In a way, this companion makes the planet stronger. In Vedic astrology, Rahu is believed to be the lord of the asterism Adra, Swati, and Shatabhisha out of 27 asterisms. When the Moon comes between the Earth and Sun, the Moon shadow falling on the Earth leads the planet Rahu.

Rahu has no existence from an astrological point of view, but Rahu is very important in Vedic astrology. Rahu is considered inauspicious in Hinduism. According to the Vedic Hindu calendar, in a day there is a time which is considered inauspicious due to the effect of Rahu. Anything auspicious will considered Taboo. This period is called Rahu Kaal. This duration is about one and a half hours and according to the location and date, it can be seen in differences. Ketu is also a part of Rahu, which you must have heard somewhere. Together, they both eclipse the Moon and Sun. Both these planets are also called sinful planets in the world of astrology. Rahu and Ketu do not have their existence, that’s why they start giving their impact according to the planets with which they sit. There are few occasions when their effect in a horoscope is auspicious. If Rahu and Ketu are in Dasha-Mahadasha in the horoscope of the person, then it makes the person very upset. If their position in the horoscope is correct, the native gets unexpected benefits and if not well, the adverse effect is equally acute.

Such a person does not back from adventures and risks. The person earns respect in society, but its effect and result depend on the zodiac sign in the Lagna.

According to mythology, Rahu is the head of an asura named Swarabhanu. This story is related to the sea churning. By deceit, a demon named Swarabhanu sits among the gods and drinks a few drops of divine nectar. After which he is recognized by the Sun and Moon God and Mohini tells the incarnation, Lord Vishnu. Before Amrit comes down from his neck, Vishnu Ji cuts his throat from Sudarshan Chakra, but his head was immortal. This head became the planet Rahu.
