Mahadasa of Rahu

Just like Ketu, Rahu Mahadasa runs for as long as 18 years. Rahu is a shadow planet and is considered malefic. However, its Dasa also brings positive changes in life. Native experiences a surge of energy and enthusiasm to be self-dependent, stand on one’s own feet and make a mark with own efforts. Rahu gives a new capacity to take informed decisions. However, it is also the planet of confusion. During Dasa, it plays with your imagination and gives a lot of confusion in key areas of life such as career, marriage and family. A sort of restlessness persists in life during this period. Health issues also strike, mostly as a result of own actions. On a positive note, Rahu Dasa can also give authority and power to the native too. Gains and rise in government sector are also possible but a lot depends upon its placement in the chart. Here is the influence of the Antardasas of different planets under Rahu Mahadasa.
