Positive sides of Rahu and Ketu :

On the positive side, the influence of Rahu can put us in harmony with collective trends and give popularity, prestige, fame and power, and bring us to lime light. It imparts an almost psychic sensitivity to mass trends and a capacity to use them like that of a politician or celebrity star.

Ketu in positive sense can create great powers of concentration, powerful perception, independence, the capacity to transcend external influences and psychic and spiritual insight. In terms of Yoga and the spiritual life, it ultimately becomes the signifier of liberation ( Moksha Karaka).

But both the nodes signify very complex and challenging forces to handle in life. Well placed Rahu in the chart can give worldly powers and great success and fulfillment of all material desires in life. In today’s global economy Rahu is the signifier of success in a foreign country and all that is connected with foreign country culture.

Ketu gives sudden and unexpected results for good or ill, depending upon its placement in the chart. Well placed it makes the individual strong but not necessarily sensitive to others.

Final Conclusion : We have now come to the end of our first semester tutorials. In these 8 tutorials the basic and fundamental concepts I have tried to explain. It is important the student should try to understand these concepts. The Why of each concept instead of trying to memorize all the effects or significations. The examples given of significations are not comprehensive at all nor can any list be ever comprehensive, because our life is very complex and the list is infinite. The planet significations and the nature of zodiac signs are the key to understanding Vedic astrology. None of us are perfect nor we can ever be perfect but if you have got the basic understanding and understood the basic “why”, then as you will go deeper and deeper and will be studying more and more charts, you will be more successful to interpret horoscopes not only yours but for any person belonging to any culture or social background.
