Remedies for Rahu

In Vedic Astrology, Rahu is considered a malefic planet by nature. It doesn’t rule any sign. It shares a friendly relationship with Saturn, Mercury and Venus and is neutral towards Jupiter and Mars.  Sun and Moon are its enemy planets, with it being more adverse to Sun. Rahu influences in gravest ways during its dasha, retrogression or transit through a sign. A house that is under the malefic influence of Rahu gets seriously affected. This shadow planet when positive for a horoscope increases spiritual inclination, wealth prospects, royal status and chances of foreign residency.
 
However, if there is malefic Rahu in horoscope, it concerns itself with sudden disasters, chronic diseases, adultery, lunacy, injuries, conspiracy, lack of peace and even death. People with malefic Rahu recurrently indulge in conflicts with people in neighborhood or workplace. Such natives are prone to feelings of distrust and betrayal. They tend to either have sleepless nights due to mental distresses or have wearing dreams, especially with appearances of reptiles.
