Transit of Rahu
Rahu is a shadow planet, an imaginary point in the sky but its presence is the most powerful in Vedic Astrology. It spends around 18 months in each sign so its transit is naturally an important astrological event. Rahu increases your desires for material matters of the house where it is placed in the chart.
