Transit Influence of Rahu
Transit influence of Rahu is more or less indicative of troubles and tensions. Transit relationship through close aspect/conjunction with weak planet is felt when the longitudinal difference is five degrees and with the grave situation at the time of exact aspect/conjunction.
The tension/trouble starts when the relationship is formed and ends when it separates from the close conjunction/aspect. In the case of strong and well placed natal/transit planets, the longitudinal distance of conjunction/aspect is of only one degree. The impact is felt with respect to the following :
1 . The significations of the houses where mooltrikona signs of the troubled planets are placed.
2. The general significations of the afflicted planet.
3. The general significations of the house where the afflicted planet is placed.
4. The general significations of the house of conjunction and the houses aspected if the conjunction is with the
most effective point of a house.
The impact is greater when Rahu causing transit conjunction is placed in dusthanas and when the planets/houses involved are weak both in natal and transit charts.
Rahu's close involvement with Venus gives an urge for carnal pleasures in the early stages of life and enjoyments through smoking and drinking, intoxication through other means, etc. Rahu's close involvement with the most effective points of the seventh, third, fifth and eighth houses takes one to premarital carnal pleasures and love affairs only for physical gratification. Rahu's close affliction to both Mercury and the weak Moon in the eighth or twelfth houses makes one a drug addict. I am sure readers will derive benefits from this in delineating the postures of Rahu in a particular nativity more clearly.
