A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Rahu in Aquarius, so the description given here may change for you if your Rahu is although in the sign of Aquarius but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets. --
Rahu represents illusion, foreign lands, foreign things (foreign as in unknown things. So, for someone living in Punjab, culture and rituals of Kerala is also unknown and hence Foreign), Drugs, Medicines, any type of intoxication, fame, wealth, success, obsession, past-life left-over karma, movies, television, online world, cheating, imagined fears, unusual things, unique things, creativity, rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions.
Aquarius is 11th sign of zodiac belt, hence it signifies the things and energy related with 11th house of horoscope, such as Gains, Desires, Hopes and Wishes, Large Organisations, Network Circles etc. Besides this, Aquarius also represents Scientific Thinking & Research, Uplifting the Society, Higher Goals & Rewards for all. Aquarius is made of another set of 2 and half Nakshatra, i.e. Dhanishtha, Satabhisha and Purva-Bhadrapada. Aquarius Lord is Saturn & Rahu.
One thing we have to remember with posts related with Rahu through Signs is that Rahu converts himself as the lord of the sign it is sitting in and then amplifies quality of lord. Like, when Rahu is in Aquarius, Rahu will take all the qualities of Saturn (Lord of Aquarius) and then will amplify those qualities out of limit. Rahu also does same to the planet it is sitting with. Like, if Rahu is with Saturn then it will take all the qualities of Saturn and blow them out of proportion during Rahu MD or Saturn MD. It is always better to have Rahu alone in a house rather than conjunct with a planet. Another thing with Rahu is that recently I have come across of the view that Rahu and Ketu don't have aspects on 5th or 9th house, for the simple reason that they are shadow planets and for aspects you need a sight not shadow. I am yet to verify it on at least 50 charts, so for now I will continue with traditional approach of 5th and 9th aspects of Rahu. Ideal placement for Rahu is to sit with an exalted planet, then it takes all the qualities of the exalted planet and amplifies them.
So when Rahu is in Aquarius which is sign of Scientific Thinking, Large Organisations, Network Circles and Higher Worldly Goals, these people become obsessed about these things. It can be said that these people are natural born Scientists. They will always talk in a Scientific way, they will always talk about the newest technological inventions, they will always say that what can be done to make this world a better place. They are the new-age inventors. They can invent things like Facebook and Whatsapp which can bring people together in world. They can go for the invention of that vaccine which can cure illness of millions of people around the world. They have huge network circles of like-minded people. They love speaking to large group of people. They don't want to speaking to 5-10 people in a group but they want to address the whole organisation at once. But again here comes the basic malefic nature of Rahu. Whatever they will do in the field of Science, Technology, Politics or Large Organisations, it will be done with the intention of making some money, because that's what Rahu wants - Material Comfort. So, they will talk big time about making change in world, about getting people together, uniting people, inventing new things for betterment of humanity but in the very source of all this talk, they will have some personal material desire to gain something or to achieve something. They won't serve anyone without any selfish reason. Rahu's energy will always make them think that dude, if I am doing this then what I am going to get in return. So, they are actually working and doing all this for that material desire, which is not a bad thing to have in this day and age. Everyone needs to pay bills at the end of the day, right?
But the extent of this impact will always be as per the Nakshatra Rahu is in. In Dhanishtha Nakshatra, it will be impacted by Mars as nakshatra lord. In Satabhisha Nakshatra, Rahu will be in its own nakshatra. In Purva-Bhadrapada, Jupiter will be the one impacting Rahu.
Also, as the co-lord of Aquarius, Rahu will be impacted by Saturn's position.
Tomorrow, the last one. Rahu in Pisces.
