is a cold and dry planet. The sight of Saturn is considered bad and when
ill-placed, causes distress, failure, dejection, difficulties, nervousness,
sorrow. It destroys the house it occupies but when well placed it gives
fame, success, honor, justice, love, wisdom, leadership ability, authority
and long life.This masculine energy rules Capricorn and Aquarius.
Saturn being the eternal employee, makes its subjects work in secondary
positions, doing dull routine and ordinary jobs. These people generally
reach the position of their section heads towards the fag end of their
careers. Also historians, archaeologista, covators of museums, workers in
refrigeration factories etc. are ruled by Saturn. Saturn doesn't make things
easy, it rather commands to get to work and to work hard. Discipline and
responsibility are important to this planet.
Saturn is cold and dry planet. Saturn rules over the hard parts of human
body - bones, teeth, knees and ears. Since it is a slow moving, cold planet,
it also indicates recurring problems, that do not cause total damage in one
stroke, i.e. cold, cough, bronchitis, rheumatism, TB, pyorrhea etc.
Rahu is not the actual planet but is an imaginary planet. Rahu is a node
that is positioned where the earth's trajectory around the Sun and the
Moon's trajectory around the Earth meet. According to Indian mythology, Rahu
represents the head of a demon. Rahu is responsible for Solar eclipse. When
Rahu, Sun and Moon are in the same zodiacal longitude Solar eclipse takes
Rahu is a 'shudra graha', hence people influenced by Rahu behave like
illiterate and uncultured people. It rules over thieves, witches, magicians,
venom and poison, snakes and thorny bushes, jails and isolated places,
unhabitated places, cemeteries, hypnotists etc.
According to the Puranas, Rahu is instrumental in strengthening one's power
and converting even an enemy into a friend. Rahu is often called the Planet
of Success. Rahu doesn't rule any zodiac, since it is not a real planet
like Rahu, Ketu is also an imaginary planet, a node. The two nodes, Rahu and
Ketu are positioned where the earth's trajectory around the Sun and the
Moon's trajectory around the Earth meet. According to Indian mythology, Ketu
represents the tail of demon(just like Rahu represents the head). The two
planets are the parts of the same danava(demon) but are 180 degree apart
from each other.
When Ketu, Sun and Moon lie in the same zodiacal longitude lunar eclipse
Ketu in certain way resembles Mars. But many times, it activates only the
negative side of Mars. This is why people ruled by Ketu are secret
adversaries. It also influences people in pharmaceutical industries,
doctors, and astrologers.
The two imaginary nodes, Rahu and Ketu are the mysterious forces and show
in the birth chart both karmic and spiritual influences. Like Rahu, Ketu is
also not a real luminary and therefore doesn't rule any zodiac sign.
