The bhava-pathi of Rahu determines the scope of Rahu's "success" in obtaining His goal of maximum public attention
"As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be, you can't see how it is. "
|Best results in Vrishabha (uttama = maximal) and Kumbha (swakshetra, widely distributed networks) but all rashi will yield publicity and leadership power. Rahu gives best results in 3, 6, 10 and 11.||
Elevation through Legitimation
Rahu in Bhava-10 public duties = privilege gained via social ranking and the rule of law.
Rahu-10 is overinvested in statutory law , governance, elite positions in the hierarchy, and titles of social leadership.
Often a dramatic rise from the station of birth via extraordinary or exotic corporate or institutional governance.
Urgent ambition to be recognized for the exceptional qualities of one's professional direction.
Desire to impose order upon large, hierarchical organizations.
Fascination with the halls of power.
Ambitious rise to high-visibility leadership titles.
Quest for high entitlements via leadership positions, law-giving, codifying, institutional ordering, governance, iconic public roles
Entitlement sought: Rahu-10 wants to camouflage-match so as to appear as a legitimate, respected, credible holder of status-rank in the class of beings =
governors, legislators, presidents, prime ministers, elite, most visible, elevated, heads of state,
The combination of urgent ambition for high respect (10) and disregard for the common folk customs (4) often allows Rahu-10 to "break a glass ceiling" as a person of nontraditional status who rises to a station of highest respect.
If Shani or L-10 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this class of persons.

|special case Vrishabha lagna||
one of the most challenging situations for Rahu-10
occurs only when Vrishabha rashi governs the radical
When Shani the karma-pathi rules bhava-9 Makara,. The most rigid case occurs when Shani occupies 9, generating a conformist personality respectful of religious rules and often deeply orthodox in doctrinal belief.
Rahu-10 although strong in swakshetra Kumbha becomes hidebound by the karma-pathi in 12th-from-10th, and the career ascendance moves very slowly due to the unyielding orthodoxy of the religious or philosophical beliefs.
Rahu remains ambitious but He is greatly frustrated as the hierarchy seems to be controlled by a stagnant but legitimate privileged class. That controlling class is typically religious or professorial in character such as priests, nuns, university teachers, pontificators, pundits, or preachers.
Public acclaim, social power, and high-visibility positions matched with apathy and detachment in the home.
chalakaraka 'slippery' Rahu in bhava-10
chidakaraka 'beheaded' Ketu = Ketu in bhava-4
Rahu's passageway = Legal Loopholes, cracks and crevices, smoke and mirrors
Bhava-10 provides the snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.
Rahu Risk-taking as a response to conflict
Rahu-10 = 6th-from = bhava-5, might feel compelled toward illicit behaviors as a method for addressing inner conflict with politics, children, or the paternal uncle's wife
Rahu-10 in Simha rashi politics
radical lagna must be Vrischika
in Vrischika, most ambitious = Vishaka and Jyestha
Ambitious Rahu seeks social class mobility and He always has a
strategy to get ahead” by means of the platform signified via
bhava and rashi.
In Simha-10, that strategy is quick rise into the limelight via politics, entertainment, celebrity, and personal genius.
Rahu in bhava-10 increases ambition for political power in large corporations or government institutions. Rahu's get ahead” method involves top roles in industries such as entertainment or fashion; highly visible celebrity culture; and elective politics.
In bhava-10, Rahu generates an insatiable hunger for higher privileges obtained via association with the class of royals and bright, creative intelligentsia.
Rahu Mahadasha- Rahu bhukti = Rahu pratyantardasha
Like any graha in 10, Rahu gains strength and dignity in the house of social leadership and the social imposition of orderly environments.
During periods of Rahu, a surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the realm of the leadership responsibilities and social-ordering or large-organizational interactions.
Public Figure Examples

Rahu in Simha * royalty
Rahu in Kanya * crime, betrayal

Rahu in Bhava- 10
Fascination with High Visibility Leadership Roles
Whilst appearing (Rahu) to be an agent of lawfulness and structure for the social order, Rahu-10 is psychologically driven by a desire to obtain the highest social entitlements normally accorded to those who accept the heavy burdens of institutional leadership.
Necessity of Shani to Ground the Public Trust
Unless grounded via an equally strong placement of orderly, legitimate and regular Shanaicharya, the disruptive energies of Rahu-10 can indicate a personality which feeds upon the public attention and privilege accorded to leaders whilst lacking the authentic concern for social order that normally characterizes the the public-officers workload.
Corrections to Rahu's quest for "unearned" entitlements can include a strong uttama-Shani in kendra to radical lagna or in kendra to Rahu.
Shani-grounded Rahu-10 leaders
By contrast, weakened Shani may indicate a narcissistic Rahu-10 power-monger who is motivated primarily by a hunger for power for the sake of power.
Such an ungrounded Rahu-10 is often lacking a sense of ethical social responsibility and may hide deceptively (Rahu camouflage) behind other more legitimate institutional leaders, usurping their power behind a smoke screen.
Gets and Keeps Governance Authority for a Long Time
Rahu-10 = usually to be found on display in public performing Rahu's intensely desired high visibility iconic and symbolic roles.
Due to Ketu-4, the parents especially mother are typically scattered, ungrounded, or unavailable.
One may experience some Ketu-timed periods of wandering indecisiveness despite other powerful Rahu-timed periods of ambition to high leadership.
Rahu-10 takes social-leadership risks and cleverly impersonates more legitimate social authorities
Exotic Persona Claims Entitlement to High Office
Rahu-10 can be a glass-ceiling crasher, empowered to break gender-race-age barriers in conservative professional roles.
May challenge conventional protocol in the style of one's ascendancy to the high-ranking position.
Expedient professional self-promotion. Self-elevation through risky executive decisions, exotic leadership style. A rogue and a challenger toward existing conventional laws and public standards.
Full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 2, 4, and 6.
Rahu in bhava-10 = craves a privileged governance role - often by means of a dramatic, leapfrog job promotion.
Rahu's characteristic over-promotion may elevate one into inappropriately powerful executive responsibilities that are "over one's head".
Rahu-10 may lack the appropriate training or the chalakaraka may simply misrepresent the amount of time (Shani-10) that is available to accomplish the assigned leadership duties.
By means of social rank and profession, one wishes to obtain the privileges of a higher seniority.
Great Leap Forward via matching those in Governance: Leadership, Decision-making, Top Position
Dramatic rise to leadership roles, under unusual, taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular (Rahu) circumstances.
Rahu swabhukti = a period of especially high visibility, exposing Rahu-10's life to the public eye.
Best results in Vrishabha (uttama, wealth) and Kumbha (own sign, widely distributed networks) but all rashi will yield publicity and leadership power. Rahu gives best results in 3, 6, 10 and 11.
Raja Yoga during mahadasha of Rahu also the Rahu bhukti within each mahadasha.
As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu disregards customary moral accountability in the father's family.
Rahu may introduce unorthodox behaviors into the highest professional office.
may signal inconsistencies and fraud in the government and its representatives;
charlatanry in those charged to impose the rule of law.
Rahu can disrupt the customary methods of leading organizations, maintaining public decorum, and managing hierarchies.
Underclass, taboo-breaking, or exotic element in the public personality.
"Outsider "breakthrough into iconic, symbolic public roles. Popular with the working classes, those who like to "bet on a dark horse", or "root for the little guy". Perceived as an agent of change in the highest echelons of privilege and prestige.
to conventional observers, this person seems like an inappropriate or vulgar choice for an exalted public leadership role. However if Rahu's lord is auspicious the public becomes fascinated with Rahu-10 and one retains high dignity for a good long time.
Associated with sudden changes in leadership.
Wants status objects and admiration of the masses.
Rahu-10 may profit from power vacuums and social instability.
An iconic agent of social change. Desires a high position in hierarchy, but has an exotic and taboo-challenging style of getting there.
Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership power= dramatic rise to national or international visibility, accompanied by respect and regard from the elite classes
decision-making roles, obtained under exotic, surreptitious, taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular (Rahu) circumstances.
Rahu-10 = very little concern for established regulations and governance protocol
USA Pres-26 National Parks Theodore Roosevelt personally negotiated the building of the Panama Canal, disregarding the legal process of conducting congressional debate, and personally writing and signing the canal agreement without consulting other governance officers.
Teddy Roosevelt claimed that the legal process (Shani) "took too long" (Shani) and if he hadn't acted quickly (Rahu) the chance for America to develop tremendous commercial activity (Rahu drishti L-3 Chandra) via this magnificent shipping (L-3 Chandra) channel would have been lost forever.
|Animosity and Conflict via Rahu-resides-10 = 6th-from Rahu = bhava-3 =||During Rahu bhukti periods, if L-6 from Rahu is strong, one may be forced into servitude, conflict, sickness, or crime by commercial business, media messaging communications, administrative behaviors, the workgroup or team, and disagreeable playmates or siblings|
Urgent Ambition to Obtain Privilege of Top-Rank Social Leadership
Desire to challenge conventional boundaries protecting Leadership Respect and Reputation
"spring forward" to a higher social station through a surprisingly fast "dark horse" unprecedented 'catapult' as a virtually unknown political candidate thrust into top governance roles
Uses surreptitious or unconventional methods to obtain credibility in executive office, tops of pyramids, visible positions of commanding power
One can "leapfrog" to temporarily higher leadership status in realms of hierarchy, large pyramidal social organizations, law and order, imposition of orderly environments, often by alliance to a highly visible and well-known personality.
Top government authorities are also likely to be experienced by Rahu-10 as somewhat disturbing personalities who can upset Rahu-10 's personal routines.
Risk-craving individual with strong desire for power. Rahu gives the result of his Lord, plus Rahu contributes obsessive-compulsive behaviors and extreme hunger for the object of its desire.
Career is associated with taboo-breaking, foreigners, dark smoke, and other Rahuvian attributes.
With the nodes of course everything depends on rashi Lord. Check Rahu's role in dashamsha to clarify the effect.
Jyotishi 1912-1998 B. V. Raman
"Q. How to read from a horoscope that a person is prospering in magic-mesmerism?
A. Rahu governs magic and mesmerism.
Oily, smoky things
Oily, smoky things in the position of executive leadership. Corporate oil business.
Hazy, smoky "backroom" practices of the authorized leadership. Outsiders, interlopers and subtly invasive force penetrates high government
"Your mission in life is for furthering some special cause in the world.
Depending on your status in society and the planetary combinations, this special mission may be predicted; but the real impulse of this shadowy planet will be to make you dedicated to a cause which you will want to carry forward even at the risk of life, status, or health.
Rahu achieves its objective despite whatever hardships it has to undergo.
With inauspicious associations and influences Rahu can, however, make you disturbed and instill evil ideas in your head.
Rahu in the 10th gives rise to Raja Yoga during its own periods.
Note: Rahu is in charge of a number of not so good qualities.
The 10th is an important house.
These things may only appear in thoughts; not necessarily manifesting depending on the overall strength of you and thus the chart.
Rahu makes you a bit of an intoxicator, wrong doing, sleeplessness, living or working with foreigners, sex with choice partners, finds comfort and pleasure in the company of irreligious people, discontented with own relatives or father,
Gets support from strong persons, clever but tense. These things may be connected to career as the 10th rules career."
Emotionally driven desire to be recognized as a Top Performer in large hierarchies, agencies of government, or top levels of institutional leadership.
Social standing and public reputation are somewhat volatile, with high highs and low lows in public approval, recognition, and fame.
One may gain and lose high positions via a spring-high-rejection-fall pattern, several times over the course of a lifetime
One's leadership roles in society, particularly those roles positioned at the top of large, stable, conventional hierarchies such as government and large corporations, will become the unlikely agents of personal disruption.
Leadership style is emotionally unstable and Rahu-10 may change professional direction or change careers impulsively. Government may alternately promote or punish Rahu-10 for taking risks.
|Rahu in 10th navamsha|
Rahu mahadasha 18
similar effects during any Rahu bhukti, adapted to the angle between Mahadasha-pati vis-a-vis Rahu
The most salient effects of
Rahu in bhava-10 * passion for leadership poweroccur during
Maximum outcome during swabhukti of
Rahu-Rahu and also during the bhukti of Rahu's
Also strong results of Rahu-10 should be expected during each of the nine bhukti periods of Rahu which occur within the 120 year Vimshottari Dasha.
Rahu-10 generates urgent ambition to obtain greater social-material privileges via display of commanding executive power, iconic public roles, or high visibility leadership positions.
The methods of expedient self-elevation for Rahu-10 include "appropriation" of the instruments of bhava-10 such as dramatic, leapfrog job promotion to higher executive rank, grasping for elite governance roles, taking power to enforce legislation, mimicking prominent leader-figure behavior, or insinuating involvement with the peak levels of pyramid-shaped social organizations.
The first step of Rahu Mahadasha = Rahu-Rahu swabhukti = an especially intense period of craving for leadership ascendance. Rahu-10 activates the public eye.
Rahu mahadasha m ay signal a dramatic rise to important governance roles. The rise occurs often under Rahu-ish circumstances = taboo-breaking, illicit, or culturally irregular.
Diverse organizational governance responsibilities, executive empowerment involving contact with cultural outsiders, foreign elements, world order.
Best results = Rahu-Vrishabha (ascendant wealth) and Kumbha (gainful networking). Rahu-10 in any rashi may yield high public visibility and leadership empowerments.
Rahu performs best in bhava-3, -6, -10, and -11.
Although Rahu-10 has not yet *earned* the respect of the solid plebian base of the pyramid, He seeks the higher entitlements which are normally accorded to social leaders, executive directors, decision-makers, and law-makers at the top social rank. Rahu-10 is motivated by a hungry desire to grasp these entitlements in a "fast-track" fashion. His ambition is boundless.
During Rahu periods, Rahu-10's upward trajectory may involve inappropriate, illegitimate, fraudulent or irregular leadership behaviors that are "over one's head".
Final results depend on the disposition of the ruler of Rahu's rashi.
Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi = Rahu + reptilian Azlesa Chandra in karma bhava = a magnificent "uncoiling" of social ordering empowerment. The skinny little dark colonial wearing homespun dhoti rises to rank of world leader.
