Great leap forward via divinatory insights, fantastic ideas, dreams and visions, private environments

Shamanistic instincts

Behind-closed-doors entitlements.

Phantom communications.

private arrangements.

Rahu magnifies the desire to seek sanctuary in the world of intuitive, private perceptions.

Likes foreign travel. Increases the psychic capabilities.

May be able to harvest a deeply stored subconscious inventory of memory.

Can amplify childlike play or paranoia, depending on the supporting planets.

Prone toward clandestine activities, whether these are disappearing into an ashram for a week of prayer, traveling incognito, a long-term bedroom affair, or conducting unauthorized espionage in distant lands.

  • Effect depends upon which spirits one is channeling...

In Meena, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Guru-like dream- sanctuary and bridging-to-higher-planes characteristics.

  • USA-Sen-Mass 1932-2009 Teddy Kennedy [political-ceremonial Andromeda-1] [uchcha-Shukra-yuti-Rahu] (12)

Generally, Rahu-Meena succeeds in the inclusive, expansive, charitable, compassionate mission, presuming adequate support from Professor Guru .

One who works for social change through breaking barriers of caste and class; a dreamer who lives in the desire-world of freedom to cross all boundaries through psychic skill and compassionate desirer.

Professor Rahu amplifies Guru's two bhava, by intensity and by days

Rahu in Dhanus or Rahu-Meena

  • effectively doubles the length of all Guru bhukti in the Vimshottari dasha (Except does not double Shani-Guru chidra-dasha ).

In the total picture, when Rahu resides in a rashi of Guru, the two bhava which are ruled by Professor Guru are very much amplified and expanded. Rahu comes first, setting the climate of ambition and opportunism.

Because Rahu bhukti immediately precede Guru bhukti, the potency of experience of the Guru-ruled bhava = increased.

  • Increase = not only in terms of psychological and material intensity of experience.

  • Increase = also by tripling the amount of time normally allocated to functions of Guru (functions of bhava-activating rulership, karaka expressions, effects of winner of planetary war.)

Mahadasha of Rahu

for Rahu-Meena

  • General trends, environments, experiences of the Rahu mahadasha

Opportunistic Trajectory via environments featuring Privacy, Bridge Travel, Clairsentience, Spiritual Guidance, cosmic inter-travel, and Dreams

Mahadasha of Rahu and most bhukti of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Meena. The purpose of Meena is remembering important wisdom acquired during parallel lives .

Typical starting scene is a dreamscape, a distant land, a therapeutic enclosure, or a walled setting such as a military or refugee camp, a hospital room, a monastery cell or personal bedroom.

The Rahu experience begins with some variety of imaginative insight (according to the bhava) which sensitizes the native either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of divinatory clairsentience is required. The environment supports childlike, reflective, prayerful and enclosed behaviors, and the important actors Typically, are either quite young or lack the barriers of conventionalized adults, such as meditators, poets, artists, musicians, and others sensitive to the communications of spirits.

Imagination from inside, nightmare from outside

Rahu-Meena might engage in fantasizing behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction * akarshana *. The unbounded expansion of the scope of the personality integrity or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as daily private prayer, meditation practice, taking a retreat, or developing a very private bedroom relationship. Conditions include clandestine activities such as smuggling and espionage.

Rahu-Meena might start the cycle with a desire to feel the intuitive childlike openness to imagery and the grand expanse of the universe, or a desire to reconnect with ancestors long away from their bodies, or those in distant lands who can only communicate via symbolic code (exempli gratia, French-speaking and code-knowing Julia Child was a US-govt spy working with the French Resistance during WW-II).

There may be sudden deployment to distant lands which facilitates recovery of past-life personality components.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the enclosure event, there is continuous engagement with ancestors and the spirit world.


The downside of Rahu-Meena = in quest to keep the clairsentient channels open, or conversely to attempt to avoid feeling overwhelmed by excessive psychic traffic, one may abuse mood-altering drugs or alcohol.

Hallucinogenic or psychotropic drugs can serve as boundary-breakers to facilitate communications with spirits especially the artistic or musical Muse. Also during these periods children may suddenly be born into the native 's life, quite unexpectedly, as a result of manifestation of ancestor spirits.

If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha, the craving for direct intuitive apprehension of the meaning of images may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss such as divorce. The death or profound separation can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. The native is imagined into the culture of the new actor, and may be asked to divine the presence of beings without bodies, so that a spirit can be guided into the path of materialization.

One needs to acquire or remember elements of this new actor's worldview in order for the native to make the leap into one's next life phase.
