The current day transits are where the action is,starting with the sign Aries the first sign or head of kaal pursh its the sign of mental activity or as the sign is Aries more a mental war activity. Now Aries as of now houses Sun exalted and brilliant but worried ,the warrior sign mars should have given solace for mars being a brilliant warrior is a good friend to have ,but as such Sun in Aries could not control his expression for he wanted to put on a pompous show to dazzle venus or shukra the daiteya guru who came visiting when his most illustrous and immortal disciple was in direct opposition in sign libra and with exalted but retrospecting (retrograde) shani in its most belligerent anti authority state of mind.
Rahu being in a balanced sign libra has well thought of moves aided by patient and cold thinking Shani.. Shani feels its the time for retribution for the egocentric devas . Sun the prominent deva in his eagerness to show the radiance and brilliance to daiteya guru shukra forgot about commander in chief and principle warrior mars being there with him as such he not only combusted shukra but mangal too ( mars) and too add to his woes ketu or body of swaran bhanu was already present in the sign Aries when the sun decided to tenant it . Now Mars could have easily controlled the ketu for ketu is in awe of Mars,but being combust and incapacitated is not himself. Similarly shukra the daiteya guru has been to impregnate the defenses by first sending ketu and then deciding to come himself is also incapacitated but to lesser extent for being Brahmin and owner of many vidyas he is in some what better position , Now the devraaj having fed his insecurity too much directs his forces in haste and without too much of thought because devas in moment of triumph and ego forgot about devguru brihaspati or huper as such are without the sanguine advice of dev guru ,the dev guru is a guest in the abode of shukracharaya wherein he is kept away from all the action incidently happening in aries and libra being in abode of another brahmin and great mantrik the divine vision of Jupiter or dev guru is not working as all the action is in 6th and twelweth from his present tenancy. ,while the scheming and deceptive Rahu easily wins the mental war and we have devas running to the tridev and ultimately to Maha dev for a solution.
Effect Mundance - We see lot of mental warfare between the nations for example China ,India ,North korea , America ,Pakistaan India,Government of India's handling of coal gate scam etc.
According to legend, during the Samudra manthan, the asura Rahu drank some of the amrita (divine nectar). Sun and moon realized it and they alerted Mohini(the female avatar of Vishnu). Before the nectar could pass his throat, Mohini cut off his head. The head, however, remained immortal due to the effect of amritaand became Rahu. It is believed that this immortal head from time to time swallows the sun, causing eclipses. Then, the sun passes through the opening at the neck, ending the eclipse. The body also turned into Ketu due to a boon, and it in turn swallows the moon on timely basis to cause a lunar eclipse.
Astronomically, the Moon in its orbit, on a northerly course from South to North, crosses the ecliptic (the apparent path of Sun). This point of intersection is known as Rahu or "Dragon's head". 180 degrees away from this point, the Moon on its southerly course crosses the ecliptic. This point is called "the dragon’s tail" or Ketu.
Rahu is a legendary master of deception who signifies cheaters, pleasure seekers, operators in foreign lands, drug dealers, poison dealers, insincere & immoral acts, etc. It is the significator of an irreligious person, an outcast, harsh speech, falsehoods, uncleanliness, abdominal ulcers, bones, and transmigration. Rahu is instrumental in strengthening one's power and converting even an enemy into a friend.
