Rahu and Ketu the Spiritual Purifier

Rahu and Ketu the Spiritual Purifier

Much maligned Rahu and Ketu are north and south nodes of the Moon thatdictate solar and lunar eclipses, because of which are also known as shadowy planets. Rahu and Ketu astronomically represent the points at which the Moons orbit crosses the ecliptic, the celestial equator.Although they are not physical in form yet are very important when we talk about planetary forces that influence us. This finds resonance in Vedic Astrology with Rahu and Ketu as stimulators of consciousness in areas of material gains and as the controllers of destiny.

These Moon nodes play a potent role on material gains, unexpected results and also human   emotions. They stand for moral choices in dealing with base instincts, Kaam, Krodh, Madh, Moh, Lobh and Matsaya i.e. passion, anger, intoxicants, attachment, greed and jealousy. Breaking the cycle of rebirths is fundamental to Vedic astrology.  Rahu Ketu dictates areas of one’s Karma, past and future. Karmic evolution highlights the negative side that needs to be dealt with, for spiritual growth to happen… a difficult proposition since it works at a psychological level.  

Rahu throws up innumerable temptations, allowing satiation of every sense before realisation of Maya and evolution towards enlightenment.  It rules over fixed stars or constellations, Shatabishak,  Ardra and Swati representing logic, bliss, virtue and cognisance … all associated with Rahu’s  enjoyment of all pleasures  before turning to the spiritual path. Jupiter and Saturn represent spirituality and occult initiation: the ending of one way of life and the beginning of another.

Ketu star is in Ashwini (Aries), Magha (Leo) and Mula (Sagittarius) the fire triplicity, another route towards liberation of the mind from the materialism. A past life link is inevitable when Rahu is in the 2nd , 5th, and 9th house of the horoscope.

On the negative side Ketu brings self-doubts, lack of confidence and negative mental state. Rahu on the other end brings illusion, paranoia, psychosis and mistrust. In the spiritual realm Rahu gives psychic powers but also inclination towards intoxication and black magic. Ketu gives psychic sensitivity and wisdom. To learn about your spiritual accomplishments in your life, knowing and understanding the Moon Nodes is the key towards spiritual growth.
