Effects of Rahu in Different Houses

By Kavita Chhibber

Rahu and Ketu are also known as Dragon’s head and Dragon’s tail. They are considered the nodes of Moon, or shadowy planets because they don’t have physical bodies. The two planets move backwards or are retrograde and give sudden and unexpected happenings in life. Their effects are modified for better or for worse depending on if they are by themselves or conjoined with other planets. Usually the effects of Rahu are considered like that of Saturn and Ketu like that of Mars.
