    Yes! They are symbols of specific kinds of energy.

    The energy is real, but e.g. in the vijja I leanred the focus is already on the 7 primary heavenly objects. Lunar nodes playing no real role. Also the influence of astrology is is a rather minor one as there are many others (except one sits around all day waiting for something to happen). As said before, there is vijja involving Rahu to change a persons luck, but this can also be done in other ways. In Vedic sciences, astrology is regular vidya/vijja, not of the para vidya kind as sadhana. So it is helping in the area of "magic", but in itself is not magical.

    You may be right. But, Hindus wouldn't agree. And,what about Wat Srisathong? A whole wat set up for Rahu?

    "Hindus"...who? When I base my comments on Vedic texts, that's enough already. I don't care who agrees or disagrees.

    I don't know every single wat and don't care what they do. Rahu is a guardian in Buddhism. Maybe that is the answer.

    OK. Good results would be unearned windfalls, no accidents or difficult to diagnose diseases, success in advertising or politics, and fame. Anti-cancer, and help with addictions, if any. Popularity and easy communications, including success and easy communications with other cultures. Politicians, writers, retailers, and advertisers like Rahu. So do artists and TV people.

    "Hindus" as a whole only exist since the late 19th century CE, when UK educated colonized Indians brought back the idea of a uniform Indian religion back to the Indian subcontinent. The Vedas have nothing to do with "Hindus" but are the work of rishis, who were Indo-Aryan. Vedic astronomy has 3 branches, which are quite distinct and relate to astrology as well as astronomy.
    But I won't spend more time on this topic.

    I've always worn mine in front. It never scared my friends away. He IS supposed to scare away backstabbers. But, he an do that from any direction. ;)

    BTW-- Rahu is about present and future karma. Ketu is about past karma. So a good astrologer can tell you why you are where you are, and what your most important lesson is for this incarnation.

    Good news for me-- Rahu is in my 11th house in my progressed chart. That means next incarnation will be easier.

    Another thing. Rahu mahadasa is 18 years long. That's a long one! His best friends are Venus and Saturn, and he is ruled by Lady Durga. Lady Durga is an aspect of Siva's consort, Uma.

    BTW-- First thing I do, every morning, is make a pot of black coffee. Some for me, and some for Rahu. Then, we BOTH feel better! ;)
