Rahu-Mars Conjunction
We have stepped into one of the most testing times of 2022 with this conjunction. Mars and Rahu, two apparently unconnected planets, are known as a ‘Lion and Monkey’ combination in Vedic Astrology. Some very odd and unexpected events occur when they come together.

Mars moved into its own fiery sign of Aries on 27 June 2022, where Rahu is already posited since March 2022. Both Rahu and Mars are very unpredictable and aggressive planets, which is precisely why one has to practice caution during their conjunctions.
