Amplified imagination (12) insinuates [Rahu] glamorous, privileged, exotic qualities.

Rahu-12 seeks opportunity via appearance of fascinating foreignness, intriguing invisibility, guided visions of the inner world.

gets important via interior inspiration

Wears the mask of a marvelous visitor from a distant land.

Rahu-12 desires to enjoy the privileges accorded to the class of those who have extraordinary dreams, who swirl a smoky illusion of non-native appeal.

The foreign background may be fabricated, exaggerated, or amplified far past the fact.

The illusion may be glamorized by unusual accents, apparitions from an imaginary world, or extraordinary meditations

Pretentious, privileged, visionary private guidance. Rahu challenges Shani.

One may speak out as directed by private spiritual guidance - especially if [Rahu-yuti-Budha]. The voice of inner knowing [Rahu-12] may collide with intitutionally entrenched interpretations [Shani]

  • Holy Science 1855-1936 Shri Yukteswara Giri [risk-rewarding Rahu in harmonizing-arranging Bharani-3] [Kuja-yuti-Budha] + [uchcha-Surya-yuti-Rahu] SYG controversially argued that a long-cherished belief about the start-stop times of the Kali-Yuga was based on an oft-repeated error, and that indeed the ascending Dvapara Yuga had begun in the early 1700's during the western Age of Enlightenment. Although many adherents of the Yuga System embraced his reasoning, orthodox believers [Shani] denounced both SYG and his claims.

Often a dramatic rise from the station of birth via extraordinary or exotic enclosures and distant realms.

Unusual circumstances regarding the spirit guides.

Rahu in 6th-from-7th amplifies the enemies of the marriage

[Rahu-Singha] [wants to be a prestigious celebrity yet obsessed with privacy]

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand [calculating-helping Pūrvaphalgunī-2] BJS is known for creating The Streisand Effect . Tthe phrase means that someone tries to obscure a photo, but because they are a famous personality their attempt to disappear the image serves to draw further attention [Simha[ to the image. In BJS' case, some photos of one of her California homes were posted in a little-used internet real-estate repository. She demanded that the photos be removed, but this demand had no legal basis in the internet age. As a result of her diva-style [Rahu-Simha] behavior, the photo-viewing events increased astronomically.

Quest for unorthodox entitlements via

  • isolation, islands

  • meditation, dreams,

fantasy, imagination

privacy, sanctuary, hermitage, hospitals, enclosures,

long sojourn in distant lands

backroom deals

  • imprisonment, waste-lands

private affairs, the bedroom, invisible cloisters

Extremely strong subconscious instincts.

  • Self-elevation through risky private activities.

  • Fascinated with bedroom practices, meditation, imagination, conceptual thought, theory, first principles, research, interior guidance, hallucination, divinations.

  • Gets entangled with those in hotels and hospitals, sanctuaries, prisons, cloisters.

  • brilliant position for creative professionals (Spielberg, Angelou)

for others, passion in bedroom exploits and foreign exploits, finance if rashi of Shukra

back-room deals and opaque dealings with exotics

imagination, fantasy, reverie

Rahu-12 may exaggerate the imagination to a remarkable degree

  • imaginative film-maker Steven Spielberg

  • poet Maya Angelou

distant lands, imaginative scenes

  • imaginative film-maker Steven Spielberg

Over-reaching, unorthodox, fascinating, mesmerizing, inner spiritual guidance [12] often emitting from an Entranced State [Rahu]


meditation, sanctuary, cloister, hermitage, astral plane = excellent placement for monks and retreat-workers:

  • mystical meditation writer Thomas Merton

  • Raja Yoga 1863-1902 Swami Vivekananda [hierarchical-ordering Jyeṣṭha -2]

  • Savitri 1872-1950 revolutionary poet Shri Aurobindo Ghose [musical-financial Rohiṇī-2] [navamsha Rahu-Urisha-uchcha] [vargottamsha]

secluded scientific laboratory and private enclosures

Full scope of effects depends upon which graha occupy bhava 4, 6, and 8.

[Rahu-Tula] occupies emotionally conflicted, victimized 6th-from-Chandra = boundary-breeching advocacy for unorthodoc victims

Rahu-12 feeds the Fantasy

  • POTUS-17 Reconstruction 1808-1875 Andrew Johnson [fantasizing-conceptual Svati-4] For AJ, the victims were not the slaves. The victims were the illiterate subsistence-farmer craftsmen who needed slaves as an economic utility to boost them out of grueling poverty.

  • Throughout his 43-year political career, AJ represented [Tula] a specialized constituency of Tennessee [and southern-states generally] white-male tradesmen and smallholders.

  • AJ assured this single-issue voting block that the Constitution protected private property. Therefore, they held a USA-Constitutional guarantee to own slaves-as-property. This marginalized [6] voter-base felt that they were victims of injustice because their pathway to the privileges of high social rank was being blocked by anti-slavery laws. Although mainly non-literate and often beset by profound misinformation, they hungered for social mobility [Rahu-12, fantasy] and they perceived slave-labor as essential to their ascent.

  • AJ was a self-taught frontier lawyer whose jurisprudential education was irregular [Rahu]. Using an over-reaching legal interpretation of the language of the 1776 USA Constitution, AJ spent 43 years in elected office advocating [Tula] on behalf of this resentful population [6] . They imagined [12] a fabulous leap [Rahu] from their dire poverty into grand privilege, by means of owning plantation slave-labor. AJ's preposterous legal claims served to fan the flames of their pipe-dream [12]. AJ never lost an election for 30 years due to the hallucinating passion of his base.

Rahu12_Christ_Moses_Russtroitsa.jpgRahu in 12 amplifies both the philosophical quest of Guru and the expedient, self-promoting instincts of Rahu.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 may travel to distant lands in search of opportunities to escalate one's launch to the top of whatever pyramidal hierarchy attracts the ascending instincts .

Rahu craves the privileges bestowed by those who access the dreamworld, the imaginative fields of perception, clairsentient awareness, the astral plane.

Just as easily, with lower consciousness, Rahu-12 may crave the prison, states of isolation, involuntary enclosures, passions of the bedroom, states of invisibility, disappearancer.

Rahu in bhava-12 =craves a privileged sanctuary space.

Suggests slippery intervention of clandestine agents who may be inimical (6) to the marriage contract (6th-from-7).

E xotic divinations via Naga-like informants.

Rahu-12 may represents a great desire to be recognized as a international or intra-galactic Private Guide , clairsentient, dream interpreter, spiritual visionary, or spokesperson for the ancestors,

although one has not yet earned the meditative, imaginative intelligence to correctly guide others along the bridge to enlightenment.

Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 often gets into misguided distant travel, imaginative worlds, or psychotic hallucination that are"over their head" .

  • chalakaraka Rahu may be a chameleon who assumes the symbolic garb of a solitary yogi; a spiritualized poseur.

  • during Rahu mahadasha one's destiny is subconsciously controlled by Naga spirits and the ancestors

  • gifted in divination which may be stunningly accurate or entirely fraudulent depending on Rahu's ruler

Great Leap Forward via Bridge between Material and Astral Planes: Spiritual Guidance, , imagination, conceptual thought, theory, first principles, research, interior guidance, hallucination, Private Prayer

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 linguist J.R.R. Tolkien * literary genius of imaginative worlds, replete with their own genetic races, languages, and civilizations

Rahu's Great Leap Forward in bhava-12 creates a sudden advance to a higher level of social privilege via a shape-shifting change in

  • sanctuary,

  • sleep, privacy, bedroom activities,

  • divination and prayer,

  • path-finding and guidance activities

  • communication with the ancestors

  • clandestine or protected, veiled activities,

  • transactions involving foreign identity and distant lands.

  • personal elevation launched from the platform of enemies-debts-disease of the partners

  • (see Das commentary "Friend of the knave and enemy of the noble.")

During the mahadasha of Rahu and bhukti of Rahu, one may re-invent one's psychic and imaginary life to better match the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of a higher social echelon.

Rahu strives with Passion to obtain the Privileges accorded to Spiritual Guides and Way-Showers

Rahu seeks social mobility via acquisition of important 12-ish things:

  • sanctuary enclosures, spa, private studio,

  • monastery, hospital, prison, cloister

  • clairsentient wisdom, private spiritual guidance, ancestor spirits

  • sleep, dreams, trance, meditation, private prayer

  • astral travel, Other Worlds, distant lands, faraway scenarios,

  • imagination, magic

  • father's childhood, mother's beliefs

It may surprise [Rahu] the public, who are not aware of going-on behind the cloistered walls of bhava-12 and may doubt that anything important can happen in such deep seclusion.

culturally-mixed monasteries, spiritual sanctuaries, hospitals, prisons, rehab centers, and other secluded spaces

Yet Rahu-12 is receiving important guidance in 12 and participating in opportunistic private events in 12. Rahu Mahadasha may find the native sequestered according to the characteristics of the rashi and ruler, during most of the 18 years of Rahu Mahadasha.

The enclosed environment of 12 may include prison, monastery, camp, bedroom, hotels and hostelries, refuges, and distant worlds.

ambitious trajectories of important enclosures

Rahu-12 casts drishti to 4, 6, 8 amplifies the environmental-boundaries (4) ministerial-service (6) and discovery-secretive (8) attributes.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 is overinvested in privacy, cloister, enclosures, distant lands, dreams.

passion for

  • privacy, sanctuary, refuge, retreat, quietude, spiritual guidance

camouflage display of

  • dreamlike imagery , sleeping conditions, private prayer
  • meditation, material invisibility, distant lands,
  • emblems of interiority

in 12-imagination, Many Tall Tales = Budha + Rahu

other-worldly ambition

Rahu in vyayabhava = often found in the nativities of guru-types and teaching yogis who bring their knowledge of more subtle worlds (12) in to this material world. Example of a spectacular [uchcha] Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 giving material success from Imaginative Worlds:

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 linguist J.R.R. Tolkien [uchcha] Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 * created perhaps the most famously elaborated fantasy worlds in modern English literature. His enduring classic of an imagined civilization mapped with richly cultured settlements of races, lineages, and languages (Chandra dhanapati-2 languages, multiplied by Guru), The Hobbit has been continuously in print since its initial publication his Shani-Chandra bhukti in 21-Sep-1937. tolkien's powerful [uchcha] Rahu-Kṛttikā-12 * Imagination * casts drishti upon Makara-Shukra randhresha-8 hidden worlds * AND dharma-pati-9 Shani-4 wisdom-fortune *"places of settlement" .

Music, stories, painting, drawing, and poetry may be their favorite methods due to the non-linear nature of spiritual communication, but all methods are allowed in the inclusive svabhava of Guru.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 connotes clairsentience; cloister; private spiritual guidance; ambition to commune with spirits

They are usually much appreciated by their devotees and even worshipped, although rarely do they invest much effort to become financially privileged. (Yet, there are some exceptional cases of by-product material wealth, especially if [uchcha] Mangala for business success.)

Privilege via Privacy, Sanctuary, Cloister

Urgent ambition to obtain a privileged sanctuary space. Amplified desires to channel the guidance of the ancestors. Spiritual-figure aspirations.

Craves the entitlements granted to a privileged foreigner. entrancing Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 utilizes His freedom from local ethical rules to gain entitlements "behind closed doors ". Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 can self-elevate via clandestine intrigue or espionage, often in distant lands.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 craves the privileges accorded to a clairsentient, dream interpreter, visionary, or diviner, although one has not yet earned a fully established meditative awareness.

  • Hungry desire to be recognized as an extraordinary wisdom-preacher, arising from the roots traditions. (12 = 9th from 4th.)

Irregular or arrhythmic identity with distant worlds, enclosures, sanctuary cloisters, or occurrences within the walls of the imagination.

Via Rahu's characteristic ambition for recognition, one may become "reborn" in irregular association with foreign settlements (8th from 4th) . Typically Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 signifies a desire for long sojourn in distant lands. However, Rahu's location in navamsha is just as important, particularly during Rahu Mahadasha.

entrancing Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 when gone awry can signal loss of physical vitality in the practice of shamanism.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 can also indicate a barrier-bending, taboo-twisting engagement with imaginative worlds, or psychotic hallucination induced by too-fast release of Kundalini [Rahu] energy by overly ambitious showy meditators suffering from what Shambala 1939-1987 Tulku Chogyam Trungpaused to call spiritual materialism.

According to His characteristic fraudulence, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 may gain admission to other worlds yet upon arrival be unprepared and suddenly in over one's head.

Amplification of the importance of divination, spirit guidance, intuitive patterns (12), often at the expense of the practical awareness of human conflicts, illness, blaming (Ketu-disregard-6).

  • Ambitious desire to be recognized for the exceptional qualities of one's foreign identity or private enclosure..

Rahu feels destined for greatness as a member of the elevated class that has been specially chosen to promote meditation, private bedroom activities, imaginative experience, dreams, clairsentience.

Entitlement sought = Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 wants to camouflage-match in order to appear as a legitimate, credible holder of status-rank in the class of beings

  • diviners, clairvoyants, clairaudients, clairsentients, oracles, seers, prophets, soothsayers, intuitives,

  • shamans, dhami, conjurers, exorcists, attendants to the dead and dying,

  • imaginers, spiritual guides, those who pray, dreamers, visionaries, and guides,

  • necromancers, geomancers, bibliomancers, psychics, aura readers, sťance

  • those who channel guidance from the ancestors , bridge-workers, ferrymen, shepherds, pasturers, transhumant lifestyle, followers of the ley lines

  • the Muse, museums, music, meditation

  • who travel for long stays in distant lands, on foreign assignment, one who is imprisoned or enclosed, the cloistered, in sanctuary, behind the wall

  • those who stay in foreign lands, private enclosures, meditation centers, convalescent homes, monasteries, hospitals, prisons, ashrama

citizens of the astral plane, beings without bodies, spirits, ghosts

  • Lord of the Rings 1892-1973 linguist J.R.R. Tolkien developed an entire other-worldly fantasy civilization rich in its own history, race and class economies, and languages

If Guru or ruler-of-12 = strong, Rahu may take whatever risks are necessary to achieve membership in this target class of beings.

From Dusthamsha 12, magnifier Rahu casts drishti upon 6 and 8. Most of life's difficulties are amplified by disturbances in foreign lands, warlike invasions or surgeries (if 12 = Mesha or Vṛścika); and the clamoring voice of the subconscious imagination.

Rahu-resides-12 = 6th-from = bhava-5 =

During Rahu bhukti if rogesha-6 from Rahu is strong, one may be forced into servitude, conflict, sickness, or crime by politics, speculative ventures, entertainment performance arts, gambling and games, expressions of personal genius, charismatic personalities, and behavior of children


with foreign lands, clandestine operations, resources of the imagination, and people who possess the privileges accorded to invisible or imaginative agents (who are often quite powerful)

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 may risk irregular behaviors in order to obtain the empowerments of vyaya bhava - often via formation of instrumental relationships with agents of 12

Ketu in bhava 6 matches Rahu in bhava 12

chalakaraka Rahu in bhava 12

  • Rahu = Privilege-seeking ambition to obtain the entitlements accorded to important figures in imaginative pursuits, clandestine operations, meditation, sanctuary spaces, the astral plane (12), communication with spirit guides, or those who power is known only behind closed doors or in distant lands .

  • Fantasy guiding personality. Achieve entitlements via the business of private sanctuary, artistic-imaginative or prayer retreat, hospital or hotel, remote or astral travel, or spiritual meditation.

chidrakaraka Ketu in bhava 6

  • Disregards the enemies. Disregards the physicians. Disinterest in medicines. Apathetic ambivalence toward medicines, war, conflict, poverty, pollution, toxicity, disease-discomfort, debt, infidelity, criminalization / crime, servitude, injury, accusations, litigation, exploitation, enemies

  • Arguments may be logically [Kanya] incoherent [Ketu], as if a thick cloud of dust particles had disoriented the mentality. Channels the vibration of the enemies and conflict-makers without ego-membrane interference.

  • Scatters the accusers. Escapes the crime.

  • No barriers of resistance in regard to these chronic human problems. One may be a visionary physician, evade debts and loans without trying, or be psychically vulnerable to the thoughts of one's enemies - all depending upon the strength of Ketu's lord. Neither medicines nor debts nor enemies are much able to connect.

Rahu's quick-ascending tunnel-up passageway 12

Bhava-12 provides the snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.

  • distant lands, long sojourn, foreign assignment

  • imagination, dreams

  • spiritual guidance, clairsentient communication with ancestors, prayer

  • enemies of marriage (6th from 7th)

  • friends of the family (11th from 2nd)

  • father's mother and childhood home (4th from 9th)

Desire for Exotic Fantasy

Passion for Mixed Spiritual Guidance

Desire to penetrate the conventional boundaries which protect astral beings, Sanctuary, invisible enclosures, Loss of Identity, and Moksha

  • Hunger to clairvoyantly possess dreams, images, and astral information

  • One can leapfrog to higher international status in realms of private discussions, meditation, sanctuary enclosures, and dissolution of earthly attachments, Often by forming clandestine relationships.

  • Uses surreptitious or unconventional methods to obtain credibility in foreign lands, private enclosures, meditation centers, convalescent homes, refugee camps, military encampments, dormitories and barracks, monasteries, hospitals, prisons, ashrama

Rahu the Rakshasa feeds upon chaotic and manipulative circumstances within the dream world, in the sanctuary, in the bedroom, in foreign lands, in the imagination, and on the astral plane.

Rahu the Saboteur disrupts the customary habits of sleep, upsets the habits of prayer, and makes one privy to exotic and potentially dangerous clandestine relationships .

Rahu Mahadasha * Rahu bhukti * Rahu pratyantardasha

During periods of chalakaraka Rahu , a surreptitious intruder or poseur enters the private imaginations and bedroom or cloistered, sanctuary relationships - e.g., relationships which are based in a foreign land.

The goal of the interloper is to break conventional limits and challenge assumptions.

Rahu-12 agents can generate voluntary enclosure or involuntary imprisonment. If imprisonment there must be other indications and also the nature of the crime will have been private.

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 type of fantasies one is allowed to develop.

Mix and merge, public and private

As the great taboo-breaker, Rahu destroys customary entitlement boundaries and behavioral consistency in the Ashram, hospital, or sanctuary;

in the meditation and private prayer; and in foreign lands.

Rahu disrupts the customary dividing walls surrounding private enclosures. Rahu interferes with the process of separating dream world fantasy from the material world reality.

  • Mormon Church 1805-1844 Golden Plates Joseph Smith + [Surya-yuti-Budha] + Mangala * looked deep into his hat, and interacted with the spiritual figure Morino who delivered instructions and explanations

One's private world of dreams and fantasies is forever churning and trying to merge with the imaginations of others, or invade the boundaries of others' private enclosures.

  • If Rahu's ruler is benevolent, wonderful dreams will fuel a rich fantasy life . If Rahu's ruler is less benevolent, 'nightmares' disrupt Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 's peace of mind.

[akashic memory patterning] of desire-driven, involuntary loss of identity and imprisonment during Vimshottari periods of Rahu

Power to stimulate the imaginative fantasies of others. Power to exhume, unearth, or excavate deeply buried subconscious desires.

  • May be engaged in boundary-challenging research in library, laboratory, or field work in foreign lands.

Can change one's identity by traveling to a foreign land

. Likes to lose one personality identity and gain another, perhaps several times during the lifetime. Enjoys the role of"outsider" .

The Chosen

Professor Rahu is by definition special and exceptional.

Rahu-12 may feel specially chosen for a privileged role in 12-ish environments. One craves permission to enter elite clandestine sanctuaries, including opportunity to receive instructions from ancestor spirits and clairsentient guides. Alternatively, Rahu-12 may generate a narrative of privilege that grants one exceptional status, such as exceptions to the moral behaviors, folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms or exceptions to the law or exceptions to a code of decency.

For example, in Simha the Surya-ruled Rahu grants a conviction that one is outside the conventional laws or normal practices regarding the activities of the bedroom, meditation hall, or distant worlds. This privilege is felt to be conferred through the paternal line [Surya] and granted to those in the role of father [Surya].

In Karkata by contrast the Chandra-ruled Rahu grants a conviction that one is entitled to operate outside the conventional laws or normal practices regarding the activities of the bedroom, meditation hall, or distant worlds; and this privilege is felt to be conferred through the maternal line [Chandra] and granted to those in the role of mother [Chandra].

Smoky, oily things in 12

  • in the meditation hall, the hospital room, the healing spa, and the bedroom.

  • travel to distant lands that suffer from thick, oily air pollution

  • Karaka for burning ghat, cremation vs. land burial (4)

Dissolution of the identity caused by hazy, clandestine dealings with social outsiders, in a foreign land.

Effects determined by Rahu's ruler

Challenge taboos of behavior in distant worlds, in imaginative environments, in the private bedroom.

Adventurous and exploratory - whether the results are good or evil, depends on Rahu's ruler . Intensely ritualistic and may indulge in black magic or predatory superstitious practices if the placement is very negative.

During Rahu periods, there is a Great Leap Forward via pilgrimage, wandering, and clandestine operations in distant lands.

High permission to breach cultural boundaries and roam in foreign lands.

Effective channel for foreign spirits who wish to invade Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 's subconscious, so special protections are required for psychic work.

The material manifestation of the bhava which are ruled by Rahu's ruler = not harmed.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 = strange bedfellows

In the private bedroom [12] Rahu may introduce strange bedfellows.

The chalakaraka enjoys a desire for exotic association in the bedroom and taboo bed pleasures. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 may possess a vivid and passionate fantasy life . Rahu reduces the boundary between the dream world and the real world.

  • Desires to retreat from the fixed conventional identity of one's upbringing.

  • Depending on other graha in bhava-12 and Rahu's ruler , can lead to a lifetime of world travel, meditation and prayer, espionage,"under the table" transactions, or drug addiction.

Traditionally, any malefic in 12 should give trouble with the left eye. Rahu may give an eye-disease condition which has the potential for disruptive healing through exotic medical treatment.

Adventure involving foreign operators and underclass dealings.

  • If Rahu's ruler is benevolent, favors extraordinary breakthroughs in hospital work or private residential treatment centers. Healing spas in foreign lands.

Does not respect ethnic and religious customary limits. From bhava-12, Rahu casts taboo-challenging drishti upon bhava-4 (home and country), bhava-6 (servitude and animals), and bhava-8 (sudden, forced changes; secret information).

Rahu must be carefully examined to see whether the total effect is sattvic or Tamasic. It can go either way.

Passions of the feet

In the material world of desirable forms and objects, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 may have passion for shoes, footwear, and sensual or psychological matters of The feet.

Could be a productive position for a healer with special gifts in foot reflexology or a medical specialist engaged in work with the complex psycho-physical energy fields of the feet.

  • Rahu + strong Shukra in 12 may own a spectacular collection of shoes.

Illicit actions as a response to conflict

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 = 6th-from = bhava- 7, might feel compelled toward illicit behaviors by a conflict with the children of the 2nd spouse, the 1st marriage partner, the business partner, or the terms of legal contracts

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

when Rahu occupies bhava-12, the 6th-from-Rahu = putrasthāna, mantrasthāna, the bhava of romance, politics, genius, and children


Naturally, if favorable graha should occupy or own the bhava which is 6th-from-Rahu + 12th-from-Ketu, the negative results can be cushioned.

QUOTATION Das / Bepin Behari commentary upon Rahu-in-bhava-12

" Rahu in this Twelfth house of redemption makes the physical life difficult and upsets all established order .

  • The expected course of life is not followed and you are forced to adopt a way of life in which there is much suffering, physical debility and psychological helplessness.

Your movement is restricted; mental anguish often becomes acute.

But the ordeals of life caused by Rahu provide you with The celestial nectar .

After a big psychological purging, you receive a spiritual bath and are anointed into the secret mysteries of life.

  • From the material standpoint, Rahu in the Twelfth house is considered less benevolent, suggesting that the purging operation manifests through immoral acts and unfortunate events. In the ordeal of the spiritual path, such difficulties are necessary .

Rahu functions as a karmic agent, producing trials so that the latent spirituality which is the true influence of the Twelfth house may emerge.

You are miserable; sharp pain in ribs. However hard you may work, you do not get any success or gain, rather suffers losses. Friend of the wicked and enemy of the good.

At last you succeed in your desires and ambitions.

  • You are very humble;

    suffer from acute bilious pain in the chest and heart.

  • With best effort you cannot modify your early life;

    the latter is most fruitful.

  • A friend of the knave and enemy of the noble.

  • You are quarrelsome, idle, a debtor, cunning, immodest, rich, benevolent, ailment of the eyes, wound in feet, a slur on the family, wastes away your time and energy; can meet your demand if you stays in one place.

Much traveling, separation from spouse and family, ugly and shabby. Dropsy [oedema]. Robbed by lowly tribals.

Separation of maternal uncle; repents after losing temper. You are inert, weak, hostile to relatives, cheat, ill-spent money.

You are very handsome, prosperous but ophthalmia or iritis. Few sons; vicious; pain, trouble, punishment are indicated .

This Rahu denotes gain through social affairs; good for spiritualism; birth unnatural."


In Karkata acc. Behari, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 = "Rahu will make you highly emotional, receptive to premonitions from the other world, and prone to fits of depression."

Rahu mahadasha 18 years

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-12 - passion for prestige privacy occur during Rahu mahadasha. Maximum outcome during svabhukti of Rahu-Rahu and also during the bhukti of Rahu's rashi-pati.

Also strong results of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 should be expected during each of the nine bhukti 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.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 generates urgent ambition to obtain greater social-material privileges via display of meditative prowess, flaunting of interior landscapes, bedroom or private privileges, and long sojourn in distant lands.

The methods of expedient self-elevation for Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 include "appropriation" of the instruments of bhava-12 such as promotion to higher divinatory rank, clairsentient distinction, "fascinating foreigner" roles, and "behind closed doors " intrigue or espionage.

The psychically charged environment for privilege-seeking Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 is often a walled enclosure such as hospital, hotel, hostel, dormitory, ashram, monastery, refugee camp, prison, healing spa, retreat center, the world of the imagination, or distant land.

Although Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 has not yet * earned* the higher entitlements which are normally accorded to spies, spirit-guardians, clairsentient guides, dream interpreters, visionaries, or intuitive diviners, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 is motivated by a hungry desire to grasp these entitlements in a "fast-track" fashion. His ambition 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 bhukti, just at the moment when He would appear to have achieved His goal, Rahuva typically suffers a sudden fall from the irregulatly appropriated entitlements.
  • A more normalized course of unfoldment in the nativity is then recovered.

During Vimshottari Dasha periods ruled by Rahuva, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-12 follows the typical ambitious Rahu-characterized curriculum. The Over-reaching One's upward trajectory may involve fraudulent or irregular methods of sanctuary enclosure or improper association with divinatory imagery that is over one's head. Rahu often succeeds brilliantly in the beginning of any opportunistic venture.

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

Particularly uncomfortable circumstances of Professor Rahu and His lord may produce psychotic hallucination or delusion due to overly ambitious attempt to grasp more insight than the physical brain is configured to handle. Also matters of the private bedroom or other clandestine arrangement may initially uplift, then cause the downfall.
