Reflections on Rahu Part III

Considerations on the influence of Rahu

In these days of powerful cosmic forces being unleashed through our Sun, the amount of light flowing to the mind-body-spirit complex – the combining and recombining of light within our bodies and surrounding our soul as impressions and wishes, desires – self-discipline is a sine-qua-non, that which we cannot do without. The Human is the Hue-man filled with the various hues of light. How may we take up the influence of Rahu and apply it with wholesome, balanced self-discipline and bring order of the chaos as mankind learns more of its origins?

Reflections on Rahu Part II




Rahu – North Node of Moon

Idol of Rahu at Sri Someshvara Temple

Om nakadwajaaya vidmahe
padma hastaaya dheemahi
tanno rahu prachodayat

The myth encompassing Rahu and Ketu illustrate the divine design – energy is blocked when Rahu and Ketu bedim the Sun and Moon. Both eclipses and conjunctions with Rahu, the North Node, obstruct, negate and liberate energy within. The two nodes are points of energy wherein the combinations and recombinations of planetary forces are transformed: for good or ill. The nodes both magnify the energy of any planet they are associated or conjunct with. However, with the inbreaking of the Golden Age and the uptake of the 4th Dimension, these nodes and their role is to augment, supplant, release and reactivate the energy within. It may also be the role of Rahu and Ketu to re-activate the so-called Junk DNA within.

Solar New Year and 4th Dimension – Part 2

(This is Part Two of a letter to my friend, Gandhi. Gandhi is his nickname due his remarkable resemblance to the late Mahatma Gandhi. “Gandhi” lives in Puttaparthi, and asked me about the forthcoming Solar New Year. In the last post, I began with a general overview of the Sun’s dispersion of rays, and how this energy is being checked or throttled by Saturn and Rahu, and how the 4th Dimension energy continue to flow to us with checks and balances. )

Dear Gandhi,
you wrote to me and asked about the Solar New Year and what it might have in store for you. In my last letter, I explained how the Sun is vargottama in 14 divisions and what this means. There are checks and balances brought by Saturn and Rahu, and Mars is depleted, in combustion being so close to the Sun; Mars is weakened to the tune of 95% so there are changes in the way strength and force are used. Social networking, social relationships are in for a marked change due this combustion of Mars.

Solar New Year and the 4th Dimension

(This is a letter to my friend, Gandhi. Gandhi is his nickname due his remarkable resemblance to the late Mahatama Gandhi. Gandhi lives in Puttparthi, and asked me about the forthcoming Solar New Year. So I have cast a vedic chart (called kundali) and write to explain to him what the chart means – especially in the light of the new dimensions, the 4th dimension, of which Gandhi knows little.)

Understanding Rahu as a Planet

The North Node is known in Vedic Astrology as Rahu, and is considered a shadow planet, symbolised by a head. In the myth of the churning of the ocean of milk, the demon Swarbhanu stole a taste of the nectar of immortality and was decapitated by Lord Vishnu. Rahu is not actually a planet, rather a shadow planet, chhaya graha, the cause of eclipses of the Sun and Moon. Where Rahu eclipses the Sun and Moon, there is a similar eclipse of the light within the mind.

Aspects of Rahu as Shadow Planet (Chhaya Graha)

The myth behind the shadow planet Rahu speaks of the Asura Swarbhanu, who was a dragon. He was sundered during the churning of the Ocean of Milk, wherein the last gift was amrita, the nectar of immortality.

The demons and the gods had agreed to co-operate and churn the ocean of milk in order to receive the precious gifts it had. They would take the gifts – but the demons engaged in subterfuge and obtained the last gift – the pot containing the nectar of immortality. The gods, outraged, called to Lord Vishnu for aid.

Lord Vishnu took the disguise of an enchantress, Mohini. This enchantress prevented the demons from drinking the pot of amrita, and made arrangements to divide the pot between the gods and the demons. The enchantress fooled the demons with her beauty and sweet endearments, whilst feeding the contents of the pot to the gods. Swarbhanu was not fooled; he had clearer perception, took a disguise and sat among the gods and was given a taste of the nectar. The Sun and the Moon, saw the deception and informed Vishnu, who promptly took off Swarbhanu’s head with his discus. The body fell down dead (and was later revived as Ketu); the head had tasted immortality and continued to live. It is said that Rahu seeks revenge by “swallowing” the Sun and Moon from time to time – this is the explanation for occurrence of eclipses.

Truth, Discrimination and Saturn

Human Values and Astrology
Value: Truth; Sub-value: Discrimination
Planet (graha) Saturn (Sani)

Shani - Planetary Deity for Saturn

Oh Lord Saturn! The mysterious one,

Thy mother is the shadow and thy father is the Sun,
You are considered, only malefic, by some,
Others know you as the benevolent one.

God gave you the task to purify each one
Through all types of experiences under the Sun.
Bless us and remove our shackles, one by one.


The Planet Saturn is dispositor of limits, control (and when we try to push past that control, frustration); and completion. We should never be trying to push back the barriers that limit us without using our discrimination.

Truth, Conscience and The Sun

Human Values and Astrology
Value:Truth; Sub-value: Conscience
Planet (graha) The Sun


Vedic God Surya, known as The Sun

The Sun is the first Planet (although it is actually a star and the centre of our solar system). One is the number of unity and a prime number. Every planet is the centre of some radiating force or energy. These planetary radiations are absorbed by all the beings in the universe in proportion to their capacity. The planetary forces pass through them along the line of least resistance

In Vedic Astrology, The Sun is the karaka (disposer, energiser, motivator) of Truth and the Conscience within.

Uluru and the Autumn Equinox

Uluru and the Autumn Equinox

In our article Understanding the Fourth Dimension, we mentioned the energies flowing in from the Core of Suns, the Source of All.

The new energy has been coming in for quite some time. It reached the turning point with the alignment of the Sun with the core of suns, then it reached back to the creation of all. This opened up many opportunities for all aspects of creation, and all forms of life in all the kingdoms, mineral, plant, animal and human.

This energy has first come to various grids in our atmosphere, and then descended to stargates on the Earth where the energy is distributed in a balanced degree and quantity to places all over the Earth.
