Rahu Mahadasha and Antardasha of other planets

Rahu Mahadasha and Antardasha of other planets

The sole purpose of horoscopes is to forecast life events.  The dasha system or the planetary period is an unique method in Vedic Astrology for forecasting life’s events. Even in dashas there are many different type of dasha like the Chara Dasha, Yogini Dasha, Ashtottari Dasha, Shool Dasha, but the most common and popular dasha for interpretation is the Vimshottari dasha. The word vimshotri means 120 years and this is the sum total of all the main periods of all nine planets.

Predictive results based on Vimshottari dasha period have been found to be very accurate. Many well known astrologers like Sri Mantreshwara have confirmed this in his famous work phaldeepika.

Rahu Mahadasha

Rahu is considered as  one of the most malefic force in ones chart and considering it as malefic is very logical because it is behind the factors that form the eclipse, which blocks the light of the great luminaries the Sun and Moon. It is a known fact that  Rahu can also bring  enormous gains when placed or associated with strong planets in the horoscope. As a shadowy planet it takes and magnifies the powers of other planets with which it is associated. For example Rahu in the 11th house brings enormous materialistic gains. Rahu also gives popularity, fame and power. A strong Rahu is must for political success. Rahu gives best results when placed in the malefic house. The positive influence of Rahu is less common than the negative. Rahu represents the force that is difficult to handle and the good results may come out through overcoming many obstacles in life.

The Mahadasha of Rahu is for 18 Years. This Rahu mahadasha period generally seems to come during the formative years of the native. It has been observed that many times some of the most important decisions of life like job, business and marriage are taken during the Rahu Dasha period. This is the period when the native will be putting its feet in the world completely on its own. This is the time when the native will move away from the protection of his family to make a mark for itself. The native will be full of energy,  enthusiasm and has the capacity to take quick decisions. The zeal to do something unique and fast and prove himself would be high on priority. Rahu is the planet for imagination and the Rahu Mahadasha accelerates the passion of the native many folds and brings over confidence. It is this acceleration that makes the native do blunders and take wrong decisions in life. It may be due to wrong decisions related to job, career or even marriage. Rahu aspect on lagan and the Moon will reduce the ability of the person to take correct and timely decisions.  The native will suffer because of his own actions and lack mental peace, harmony and face health problems.

If the native is able to deal with the Rahu mahadasha effectively then he reaps benefits in the subsequent dasha which is the Jupiter Mahadasha.

Given below are Interpretation of Rahu Mahadasha with other Planets: – 

Rahu Mahadasha + Rahu Antardasha – Mental Anxiety, transfer, legal trouble , transfer, ill health to wife, leaving home and wandering

Rahu Mahadasha + Jupiter Antardasha – Improvement in health, promotion in job, child birth or marriage, pilgrimage, distant travelling, litigation and legal problems.

Rahu Mahadasha + Saturn  Antardasha – Overall a very unfavorable period, ill health to spouse, temporary or permanent separation, health problems to self.

Rahu Mahadasha + Mercury Antardasha – Promotion in job and improvement in business, purchase of vehicle, luxuries,  social connections, earning through illegal ways.

Rahu Mahadasha + Ketu Antardasha – Disease prone, ill health, differences with wife, loss of wealth, allegations from others, problems with seniors.

Rahu Mahadasha + Venus Antardasha – Purchase of vehicle and other comforts, marriage, happiness from wife, promotion in job, gains through agriculture business, health of self will be matter of concern.

Rahu Mahadasha + Sun Antardasha – Change or transfer in job, change in residence, mental worry and health issues like gastic problems, boils, fever can be there.

Rahu Mahadasha + Moon Antardasha – Enjoyment in life, support from others, distant travel, financial improvement, mental tensions.

Rahu Mahadasha + Mars Antardasha – loss through legal issues, disagreements with brothers, mental agony, health issues, accidents, reckless decisions.

If Rahu is in 3, 6, 11 of the birth then financial improvement will be there. Benefic aspects on Rahu and the bhava decides the nature of results of the Rahu Mahadasha. It is not correct to say that the entire period of Rahu Mahadasha of 18 years will give problems. Rahu along with other planets which are malefic in the horoscope will give bad results.

      • Thanks . But I read that if Jupiter is in 8th house from lagna jupiter mahadasa will not be good. Please advise

        • TMR

          All planets are good or bad depending on their placement, lordship and aspects from other planets. There is a fool proof method in finding out whether a planet is good or bad and to what extent it will influence your life. All these things are illustrated in my blog which you may read and do not come to conclusions from hearsay knowledge from wayside astrologers.

  2. Sir Navneet ji, please guide me. My life is in total mess…
    I am unmarried. Age is almost 34 years.

    1. Is my wife from foreign land?
    2. I am not doing well in India. No mental peace.
    3. Will I settle abroad after marriage?

    • TMR

      There is nothing like a foreign land in Astrology. The whole globe is treated as one unit. You are a resident of this globe. Division into countries, states, districts etc. are all done for administrative conveniences. If you observe all living beings are there everywhere in this globe and all of them live identically and even for looks they are all alike.

      If you have no mental peace in India, neither you will have it in US or Siberia. It is your attitude which makes you unhappy. If an Indian girl is not sufficient to give you happiness, no american girl or sudanese girl can ever make you happy.

      Do not blame Astrology for all your ignorance about it. Astrology is a science and you have to learn it to understand it. May be you can read

      Your career house is the best in your horoscope. Every boss wants you in his place. That is why there are too many transfers and posting particularly in the Rahu Mahadasa which is very poor in your charts inheriting Mars properties and qualities. You will get settled in 2022. Read my blog for more details.

      Your prayers to Lord Shiva and Durga are sufficient to alleviate your sufferings without which you would have been suffering much more than what you are now suffering. Read Srimad Maha Bhagavatha too which will help you from the One Supreme God of the world to bless you suitably.
