  • hidden money

  • secret liaison

  • masks

  • camouflage

  • disguise

  • occult knowledge

Elevation via

  • Sudden Transformation

  • Secret Resources

  • Hidden Assets

  • Reborn Identity

  • Revolutionary Change


Rahu in Bhava-8 sudden revolution = privileges gained via secret knowledge and sudden, forced identity change.

Rahu-8 is overinvested in catastrophe, upheaval, sudden unexpected force. The native is fascinated by disasters, emergencies, conspiracies, hidden threats. Unless corrected by lawful Shani, one may become an alarmist or terrorist who is preys upon the human fear of sudden change.

Often a dramatic rise from the station of birth via extraordinary or exotic rebirth, dangerous environments, sudden upheavals, and the conditions of death.

  • Unusual and advantageous circumstances regarding the partner's family (2nd-from-7) and marital assets.

  • Rahu-8 seeks to "get ahead" via confidential information, holding secrets, engagement with sudden eruptions of force, disasters, unexpected and overwhelming changes

  • attracted to positions such as 'executive secretary' wherein one knows, and can use for self-elevation, secret information about the business, about the boss

  • intelligence officers, police detective, disaster specialist


Quest for higher entitlements via:

  • rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, "born again"

  • secret liaisons, hidden money, masked assets

  • disguised identity

  • occult mysteries, tantra

  • emergencies, sudden unexpected changes,

  • explosions, eruptions, disasters

  • surgery, forced transformations

  • reconstruction, rennovation

  • knowledge of the conditions of death

Rahu wants what He materially cannot have or morally should not have.

Rahu-8 wishes to obtain the privileges accorded to those who attend Great Transformations.

Rahu-8 is a master of rejuvenation, resuscitation, emergencies, an energetic pursuer of trauma intervention, a skillful manager of affairs conducted with Great Secrecy.

Whatever distinction He obtains in the hungry question for recognition, He will never be satisfied.

Immediately upon obtaining the object of desire, Rahu again yearns for more, better, different privileges given to the class of beings who show intensively transformative instincts, responsive movement in a state of terror, and rebirth during catastrophic change. Every day begins with renewed lust for this ephemeral prize.

As much as Rahu hungers for recognition by those who deal in conditions of emergency, terror, disaster, and threat to life, Rahu is frustrated in the veiled, under-cover conditions of randhrasthana. Rahu-8 can only be acknowledge "secretly".

Rahu-8 often brings substantial inheritance, which Rahu-8 wants to use as a catapult into higher privilege even while one tries to hide the money.


Entitlement sought : Rahu-8 wants to appear as a legitimate, credible holder of status-rank in the class of beings =

  • holders of confidential information, secret-keepers, masked by camouflage, transformers, magicians and tantriki, those who deal with sudden eruptions of force, one who has psychological control, who can read patterns of invisible or subtle influence,

  • who drills, digs, or dives, or plunges into the unknown, excavators and exhumers, surgeons, one who understands and can act upon the cycles of self-destruction and rebirth,

  • discovers hidden resources, finds hidden treasure, receives inheritance, who turns the wheel of birth and death.

If Mangala or L-8 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this class of beings.

strong association with socially risky, desire-driven extramarital relationships

Hidden resources,

hidden infiltrations

hidden forces

hidden conditions

hidden monies,

hidden subsidies

"on the take"

- and its consequences

Hidden hoard of confidential information

  • USA Pres-37 (resigned) Richard Nixon had a secret audio-tape system to record all conversations and phone-calls in the White House Although this surreptitious storage device (Rahu = tape) indeed provided the clinically paranoid Mr. Nixon with short-term gains of political control, this illicit mechanism ultimately destroyed his career.


Hidden Sources of Financial Wealth

As a career diplomat, USA Pres-15 (1857-1861) James Buchanan's main task was to form nationally beneficial relationships with important commercial interests in several countries.

  • Buchanan hosted gracious ambassadorial parties for wealthy businesspeople (Shukra-3) in London, Paris, Moscova, and Washington DC. His lovely parties were attended by rich, influential slave-owning sugar and cotton growers.

  • While socializing (Shukra-3-Vrishabha) in the national interest, Buchanan's rather luxurious personal lifestyle was being secretly subsidized by rich southern slave-plantation owners (Shukra-3 owns Rahu-8 Thula = hidden arrangements).
  • Unfortunately, after decades of enjoying the plush company of the monied growers (Shukra-3) Buchanan was quite deeply "in the pockets" of the slave-owners.
  • DDespite being himself a northerner, and despite his clear electoral mandate from northern voters to severely limit or stop slavery in the nation, he continued to protect the constitutional legality of slavery.

Hidden eruptions, secret forces, masked conditions:

  • "A Room of One's Own" novelist, essayist, publisher Virginia Woolf = Rahu in 8-Vrischika. She was a splendid prose writer and energetic publisher due to Rahu's lord Mangala-Mithuna-3.

  • Yet she experienced a series of catastrophic mental upheavals leading to suicide.
  • Her suspected bi-polar disorder (in modern parlance; then called manic-depression) was kept under cover (8) from her friends and family. The extreme mood swings and the almost tangible presence of her tortured mind was often recorded in her private writings (Mangala-3).
  • However Rahu ambitiously generated a successful the public camouflage, and few knew of its extreme sorrow and frustration. In the event of her drowning death, many expressed shock and surprise (8).
  • Note also the melancholic Krittika female lagna.

Rahu's quick-ascending tunnel-up passageway =

Bhava-8 provides the snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.

Rahu in bhava-8 = Ketu in bhava-2

chalakaraka 'slippery' Rahu in bhava-8

  • Ambition to obtain "by whatever means necessary" the privileges accorded to holders of mysterious or confidential empowerments

  • fascination with The capital wealth of the partner

  • passion for clandestine liaison; craving to be acknowledged as an important figure in times of crisis and transformation; a healer and a knower of intimate secrets.

  • One's connection to the power-source of destruction-and-rebirth cycles = amplified and one seeks the power to engage with the forces of sudden, unexpected change.

chidakaraka 'beheaded' Ketu in bhava-2

  • 'say whatever you want'

  • Ambivalence toward the family lineage history; toward face, hair, teeth, mouth and eyes ; eating and food; toward language, speech and song; toward meter and verse; toward received values; scattered focus on containment of capital wealth.

  • apathetic, disengaged with treasuries of capital wealth and knowledge, yet there are no barriers preventing acquisition of herds, hoards, and collections of stored value. Wealth outcome depends on Ketu's lord.

Rahu in Kumbha

  • Kurt Cobain, Nirvana

Rahu in Bhava 8

= 8th- from any lagna

= 8th-from Chandra


The path toward privilege is composed of erupting forces, masked mysteries, confidential information, hidden liaisons and dangerous secrets. The liaisons may be personal, financial, political, even spiritual.

Rahu is fascinated by sudden release of hidden energy.

Claim to occult entitlements.

Rahu's self-elevating platform = the environment of the "apertures" = tunnelized membrane openings between the worlds = conduits of the spirits = chakra, channels, rivers, nadi

Cycles of shockingly sudden change.

  • Soviet premier 1917-1924 Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin led the Bolshevik uprising 1917 October Revolution in Russia which toppled the Tsarist regime and swiftly nationalized all property in the nation, introducing a terrorist dictatorship and violent repression in the name of "security" (Rahu-Karkata-8)

  • USSR genocidal dictator 1919-1953 Josef Stalin followed the trend of mass terrorism, a cult of secrecy, violent suppression followed by violent uprisings.

  • USA Pres-38 Gerald R. Ford was called to the presidency under disastrous circumstances after the impeachment of USA Pres-37 (resigned) Richard Nixon

Self-elevation through risky (Rahu) hidden liaisons, masked dealings, camouflaged treasuries.

Fascinated with mysterious secrets.

Gets involved with occult knowledge

Rahu + Chandra = sudden upheaval regarding the mother

Rahu + Surya = sudden upheaval regarding the father

Rahu-8 = a very dicey but high-potential position which can result in

sudden unexpected transformation of identity

  • "Zanjeer" dramatist, politician Amitabh Bachchan is a master of self-re-invention in the realms of politics and entertainment (Simha) After his cinematic career collapsed (8) and again after a political corruption scandal (Shani-Rahu period) Mr. Bachchan's public reputation recovered (8) with surprising alacrity. Rahu's lord Surya is well-placed in 9 yuti uttama-Budha. His problem-solving capabilities * uttama Budha * = an important weapon in Rahu's arsenal of ambition-for-privilege via transformation of identity.

reptilian trickery regarding the spousal family of origin and spouse's assets

acquisition of hidden wealth and secret knowledge

Full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 12, 2, and 4.


Danger

Unlike inactive, witnessing Ketu in 8 which is overall a spiritually beneficial placement, Rahu in 8 can represent a losing gamble with the dangers of sudden often violent and unexpected changes, specifically changes which initiate the conditions of death.

Rahu-8 = ambition to discover the hidden energetic forces which animate the unknown.

  • "Theory of Relativity" physicist Albert Einstein discovered numerous phenomena of nature including the fourth dimension of physical reality

  • "Art of Virtue" diplomat, inventor, publisher Benjamin Franklin discovered numerous phenomena of nature including properties of lightning and the Gulf Stream

  • "A Room of One's Own" novelist, publisher Virginia Woolf plumbed the depths of her subconscious, expressing her discoveries via writing since Rahu's lord = angala-Minunaya-3

  • "Psycho" cinematic director Alfred Hitchcock = psychological secrets, hidden realities, sudden emergence, masked motivations

  • USSR genocidal dictator 1919-1953 Josef Stalin * use of terror to obtain government control (Makara)


Craving for the "born again" experience:

Rahu tries to trick and deceive the conditions of death, using threats to life for His own instrumental purposes.

Devious Rahu-8 may be intrigued by tantrik promises of fleshly immortality and perhaps become fascinated by the privileges of empowerment through the dark forces.

In His arrogance, Rahu may underestimate the true intensity of the dark force and the corresponding frailty of human defense against annihilation is not recognized until Rahu-8 has entered the inextricable vortex tunnel.

In compounded difficulties such as harsh drishti of Kuja to 8 and other hasteners, possibility of unintentional suicide and other outcomes resulting from the pichchala-karaka's slippery movement to "trick" the conditions of death.

  • "Nirvana" musician, Kurt Cobain


Fascination (Rahu) with the wealth of the partner (2nd from 7th)

Fascination with the Knowledge of the partner (2nd from 7th)

  • "Theory of Relativity" physicist Albert Einstein was considered to have obtained much benefit from the ideas of his first wife, herself a gifted physicist

Rahu in bhava-8 = fascinated by the lure of privileged secrets.

  • "Theory of Relativity" physicist Albert Einstein - devastating secret bombs capable of large-scale annihilation

Suggests the fascination (Rahu) of extramarital (8) intrigue - but the outcome depends on Rahu's lord.

Two examples of a Rahu-timed extramarital fascination which harmonized into a second marriage due to the stability of Rahu's lord:

  • "True Romance" dramatist Brad Pitt Rahu's lord Budha in Dhanushya-2 second marriage + Surya yuti Ketu + Chandra + Mangala

Excellent placement for

  • professions of masking, hiding, camouflage and disguise

  • high-risk work in volatile environments

  • double-agents and spies

A great desire to be recognized as a discoverer or transformative healer, although one has not yet earned the insight. Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion, Rahu-8 often gets into misguided tantric or confidential practices that are "over their head".

  • Great Leap Forward via Discovery: Occult and Confidential knowledge, Hidden Assets, Emergencies

  • Discovery - recovery

  • Elevation through revelation

Rahu Risk-taking as a response to conflict

Rahu-8 = 6th-from = bhava-3, might feel compelled toward illicit behaviors by a conflict with commercial business, the siblings, or the family of the 2nd spouse

"Desire to Possess Mysterious Secrets"

Passion to challenge conventional boundaries that define Hidden or Confidential Knowledge and Sudden, Forced Changes

  • Hunger to Possess forensic knowledge and tantric mysteries

  • One can "leapfrog" to higher occult-knowledge status in realms of secret monies, emergencies, catastrophic change, surgery, and magic, often by "marrying up".

The partner-helpmate's contribution to assets (2nd from 7th) = masked in secrecy

Uses surreptitious or unconventional methods to obtain credibility in situations of catastrophic change, radical healing, emergencies, interventions and invasive "break-ins"

radical asset "discoveries" = uncovering the existence of hidden natural resources

exposing the psychological hidden motivations

The Chosen

One wishes to feel specially "chosen" for a privileged role: permission to join elite secret societies and confidential knowledge reserves.

  • "Theory of Relativity" physicist Albert Einstein's membership in the secret group of WWII scientists who had access to both Nazi advanced weapons technology and also the USA Manhattan Project.


As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu destroys customary moral boundaries and behavioral consistency

  • in the spouse's family (in-laws);

  • in the inheritance and shared marital assets;

  • in mysterious affairs such as covert military invasions, uncovering ancient history, surgeries, birth and death,

  • tantrik yoga practices

  • in catastrophic emergence.

Les agents provocateurs represented by Rahu-8

The agent desires to obtain privileged experiences by "leapfrog" without having followed the conventional proving steps toward social approval of "mystery" (8 = exploration of the hidden, magical, occult).

Thus Rahu in 8 disturbs the credentialing process and existing orderly limits regarding:

  • management of the joint assets of marriage,

  • handling sudden emergencies

  • discovery of hidden resources

  • secret money and confidential information

  • cycle of destruction and rebirth

  • relationship with in-laws

  • surgery disaster catastrophic change and sudden transformations

Depending on the strength of Rahu and Rahu's planetary lord, Rahu-8 may suffer an passion for secrets.

  • "Theory of Relativity" physicist Albert Einstein had a secret, abandoned first child (Mangala L-6 for death of child, uttama with Rahu in 8).

  • He discovered numerous secrets of the universe and worked on secret weapons of mass destruction which resulted in the conditions of death for Nagasaki-Hiroshima in WWII. Einstein had scientific collaborators, but he would never reveal or acknowledge their contributions to his work.

Rahu is beneficial in bhava-8, but only for magical or tantric healings, such as surgery, and emergency intervention. Rahu in bhava-8 may bring inherited wealth, and surprisingly broad access to privileged information. Much hidden interaction with foreigners, exotic and secret world-power lineages (if in a regal sign) and a great attraction to situations involving catastrophic, forced, and sudden changes.

Hunger for the hidden, secret, mysterious, confidential, deadly, dangerous, or taboo.

Keynote of interventionist healers in the Acute transitional stages of life and death. Makes an excellent psychiatrist and medical or crime writer. Engaged with the rebuilding of identity after catastrophic change. Intrigued by the extraordinary disruption of life force during emergencies.

Hunger for immersion in sudden movements of the cycle of birth and death, such as acute psycho-medical trauma, emergency first-responder, medical "triage", wills and estates, large-scale taxation, managing weapons of mass destruction, awareness of forces of great evil in the world.

  • the birth family of the spouse will have exotic or underclass attributes.

    Death by poison/drugs, snake-venom, or mysterious surprise attack.

Bodily vitality and social personality difficulties

"Damned if you do; damned if you don't."

When Rahu = 8, naturally Ketu = 2, then bhava-1 social personality enters a bad-angle position= a feeling of being trapped in the wrong body.

  • the notoriously difficult 6th-from-Rahu = an attempt at quick self-elevation during which one becomes the victim of fraud or tricky deceit during the conception process

  • the notoriously difficult 12th-from-Ketu = an attempt to withdraw from involvements with the family lineage (2) during which one is prevented from "clean cut" separation because 12th-from-Ketu frustratingly 'dissolves the detachment' and re-invigorates the historic family bond.

  • This sort of body and the social personality which develops on its basis is adversarial to Rahu-8 's true spiritual self and unsatisfying to the point of impoverishment or physical illness, yet psychically (Ketu) it is quite hard to get out of the body.

A compulsive keeper of secrets. Fascinated with the secrecy surrounding taboo actions and desirous of tantrik knowledge. Wants to explore and Adventure in forbidden areas, both physical and psychological. Likes to stir the cauldron. Easily gets into secret terrain that is "over one's head".

May "secretize" information which was previously open.


  • Causes and conditions of death are related to the L-8 and to Rahu, including illicit desire and pursuit of risk

  • death in a foreign place, or surrounded by strangers .

  • Funeral full of oily smoke from incense at the burning ghat.

  • Surprisingly auspicious!

  • Tantrik benefits accrue. In extreme cases, following the myth of Rahu, the head may be severed.

  • Presence of naga spirits.

Other People's Money (8)

Can be tempted to file false insurance claims, invest money which in truth belongs to others, and claim expertise not truly possessed ... because Rahu-8 sees these temporary little white lies as small expediencies which can assist the overall trajectory, and naturally these small misallocations will be forgotten once Rahu arrives in the glorious elite.

Das / Behari: says:

"... you are always trying to attain your goal, but unfortunately your goal is not often clear to you.

Under such conditions you always worry about unimportant things or strive after something which seems important momentarily but gives no ultimate satisfaction,

  • and to attain your assumed objective you may associate with undesirable characters who bring a bad name.

You suffer from complex ailments which are difficult to diagnose.

  • Rahu promotes health; promises longevity; grants gifts, legacies and inheritance from the dead.

  • You are extravagant, sick, strife with brothers, life away from birthplace, unhappy family life.

  • Denied happiness through spouse, children, honor, education; suffers from diseases of rectum, diabetes; hindrances or enemies.

    • Complains of gastralgia or hystericus etc.

    Denied patrimony.

    Respected and recognized by the rulers and pundits.

    Fortune smiles once; but losses mock you again and again.

    Forsaken by the noble for no reason.

    • Gain of sufficient wealth from the government.

    • And sometimes it is lost.

    Well-built, short-tempered.

    Free from danger; suffers from diseases of the generative organs, hydrocele, gain through defeated enemy.

    Trouble, ill-spoken, slow coach and ailing.

    Vicious. Much trouble and suffering.

    Praised by the state. Condemned by some. Many ups and downs.

    • Stomach problem through hard labor.

    Honor and fame from the government, noble by deed and thought, healthy, some income or employment.

    • Happy in old age.

    • Infections. "

  • Rahu in 8th-from-Chandra


    Sudden and dramatic emotional changes causes by eruption of acquisitive or possessive desires in the family of one's first spouse (in-laws) or the former partner of one's second spouse.

    During Rahu periods, secret monies, one's own hidden relationships, and information supposedly protected by confidentiality agreements, may be exposed.

    • Rahu-8 's ability to tap into secret knowledge and funds, creates a life of constant mystery and intrigue. One's intuitive capacity to access the resources of others becomes the key to psycho-emotional disruption.

    • Rahu periods are catastrophically disruptive to the emotional habits and routine behaviors in parenting, sheltering, home-making, property ownership or stewardship. Yet if Rahu is well disposed then Rahu-8 will indeed reach one's goal.

    • Inherently exploratory emotional constitution that is prone toward extramarital involvements, but this same exploratory instinct can also be channeled into extraordinary actions which break barriers of public expectation in other ways, e.g. Sir Edmund Hillary.

    (Hillary + Tenzing Norgay's triumphant summit of Chomolungma/Everest occurred at the end of his Chandra/Kuja period, followed by his shocking disruption into a world hero in Chandra/Rahu.

    Animosity and Conflict via Rahu-resides-8 =

    6th-from randhrasthana = bhava-1 =

    During Rahu bhukti if L-6 from Rahu is strong, one may be forced into servitude, conflict, sickness, or crime by hostile social response to the appearance of the physical body and critical, argumentative, or accusing behaviors embedded in the social personality

    6th-from-Rahu-in-8

    6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu =

    The Trouble-makers:

    6/12 agency bhava-1

    6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu

    The bhava which = 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu = most conflicted, adversarial, toxic, frustrating, every-way-but-loose environment of the nativity

    By knowing the axis of radix Rahu-Ketu, it will be possible to predict which department of life will cause consistently the most persistently volatile and recurring yet seemingly uncontrollable trouble for Rahu-8 .


    Compared to 6th-from-Shani

    6th-from-Shani-related disagreement and conflict improves with age, neutrality, and patience.

    • However, 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu variety of conflict due to overstepping the bounds of one's rightful place (6th-from-Rahu) plus loss of meaningful engagement due to apathy (12th-from-Ketu) reappears in a new guise during each subsequent Rahu bhukti.


    6th-from-Rahu

    6th-from-Rahu = the disagreements, disappointments, broken contracts, accusation, arguments, and adversarial relationships which originate in Rahu-8 's attempt to self-elevate via quick, unconventional and generally unearned increase in social rank and privilege.

    6th-from-Rahu shows the adversarial relationships, illness, and financial imbalance such as debt leading to poverty or servitude, which are triggered by Rahu-8 's instinctive desire (Rahu) to challenge boundaries and leap-frog over customary stepwise earnings.

    The negative consequences of 6th-from angles are karmic in origin. Persons whom one may have inadvertently harmed in parallel lives may suddenly appear as exploiters, enemies, or disease agents during periods of Rahu or lord of 6th-from-Rahu. They enforce servitude, start conflicts, and cause or treat disease during this period.

    • Effects of 6th-from-Rahu do not necessarily reflect any present-life crime or dishonor committed by Rahu-8 . The origins of Rahu-Ketu drama are often shrouded in the mists of previous lives.

    • Neutral acceptance of the realities of "6th-from" = accusations, disregard for agreements, and ill-will in humanity is often the only available strategy for dealing with this recurring situation.


    12th-from-Ketu

    12th-from-Ketu = loss of vitality, dissolution of enthusiasm, drained energies, erosion of conviction, disengagement, and general ennui regarding persons, topics, and relationships which are already weakened due to Ketu's residence in the bhava.

    • Effects of 12th-from-Ketu are relatively subtle yet often deeply frustrating; there is not enough energy or enthusiasm available to summon, not enough fuel in the tank, to get going toward solution of 12th-from-Ketu problems.

    • Neutral acceptance of inevitable loss is typically the only available strategy.


    Amelioration

    The native typically does not desire to eradicate their power to control secret knowledge. It is a precious and intriguing capability. The physical body may be exploited (6) for Rahu's purposes; the resulting imbalance can be corrected via Seva for those suffering mysterious or undiagnosable disease (6). Rahu-8 is a healer's placement, and when properly used Rahu-8 can become the agent of miraculous transformations.

    ~~ Ram Dass

    "As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be, you can't see how it is. "

    Effects of Rahu mahadasha 18 years

    Effects of Rahu bhukti

    Effects of Rahu pratyantardasha

    During periods of Rahu, a surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the realm of sudden emergence and mysteries and confidential interactions.

    • The goal of the interloper is to break limits and challenge assumptions about the normal stepwise path of the normal stepwise path of acquisition of hidden knowledge and wealth.

    • One's passion for connecting to this enticing exotic agent is disruptive but exciting and each iteration breaks some limit upon how many and which types of secret knowledge one is allowed to explore.


    The most salient effects of Rahu in bhava-8 * passion for secretsoccur during Rahu mahadasha. Maximum outcome during swabhukti of Rahu-Rahu and also during the bhukti of Rahu's rashi-pathi.

    Also strong results of Rahu-8 should be expected during each of the nine bhukti periods of Rahu which occur within the 120 year Vimshottari Dasha.

    • During any Rahu bhukti, expectations must be adapted to the angle between the Mahadasha-pati and Rahu.

    Rahu-8 generates urgent ambition to obtain greater social-material privileges via display of confidential information or knowledge of catastrophically dangerous situations. Suggests a potential path of ascension via extramarital intrigue however the emotional urge for secrecy may equally likely express via clandestine political affair involving hidden power or cleverly hidden financial assets.

    The methods of expedient self-elevation for Rahu-8 include "appropriation" of the instruments of bhava-8 such as promotion to higher emergency-management rank; surgical distinction; healing roles; handling explosive, revolutionary, sensitive or classified information;, and environments of great danger or secrecy. Diplomats Benjamin Franklin and Hillary R. Clinton = Rahu-8.

    Although Rahu-8 has not yet *earned* the higher entitlements which are normally accorded to tantriki, surgeons, nuclear physicists, physicians of world leaders, and disaster first-responders, Rahu-8 is motivated by a hungry desire to grasp these entitlements in a "fast-track" fashion. His obsession is boundless.

    • Typically during the first portion of the Rahu period, Rahu will succeed in rising above the privilege accorded to His station of birth - sometimes dramatically so.
    • However toward the end of the Rahu period, just at the moment when He would appear to have achieved His goal, Rahu typically suffers a sudden fall from the improperly appropriated entitlements.
    • A more normal course of karma in the nativity is then recovered.

    During Rahu periods, Rahu-8's upward trajectory may involve fraudulent or irregular handling of secret money, secret knowledge, or secret relationships that are "over one's head".

    Final results depend on the disposition of the ruler of Rahu's rashi.
