Rahu is the north lunar node (ascending) and it along with Ketu is a “shadow planet” that causes eclipses. It is an imaginary planet but considering the importance of Rahu in astrology, it has been allocated the status of the planet by Rishis.
Rahu does not have any physical existence of its own. It is a shadow planet, but despite being a shadow planet, it maintains its influence on the horoscope. Rahu does not always give inauspicious effects. Sometimes from the point of view of health, it gives such a disease, which can be cured late. In its dasha / antardasha, the person’s intellect remains somewhat confused. A person takes many such decisions for which he may have to repent in future. It becomes difficult to differentiate between right and wrong.
To remove the malefic effects of Rahu, one must chant the mantra of Rahu. This mantra should be chanted at night and chanting should be started on Saturday.
