What is Rahu? How to reduce malefic effects of Rahu?

Rahu is the north lunar node (ascending) and it along with Ketu is a “shadow planet” that causes eclipses. Rahu has no physical shape. It is an imaginary planet but considering the importance of Rahu in astrology, it has been allocated the status of the planet by Rishis.
Rahu is known to confer malefic effects in general and is considered as a planet which induces laziness, delays, and hurdles in work. Rahu is known to reflect its shadow for 18 months in a zodiac. It can create confusion, depression and emotional imbalance if placed negatively in the horoscope. It is said that if Rahu sits in an auspicious position in the horoscope of a person, then luck is brightened. With this, the person attains sharp intellect. The native receives honour and fame in the society. It has friendly ties with planets like Venus, Mercury, and Saturn. The Moon and Sun are the enemy planets in which it is more averse to the Sun.
Here are some astrological remedies to improve Rahu in your horoscope:

  • I suggest you wear sandalwood tied in blue thread to diminish the negative effect of Rahu causing you anger and fright.
  • I recommend you to meditate during Rahu Kaal everyday as it will protect you from ill influence of Rahu in your horoscope.
  • I would also recommend you to donate water and four coconuts in the temple at the time of Amavasya.
  • Jupiter is the only planet that can control Rahu, Jupiter represents ‘Guru’ and hence I advise you to worship and respect your Guru. I think it’s the best way to save yourself from the harmful effects of Rahu.
  • Best remedy I could suggest is chanting the mantra ‘Om Raa(n) Rahve Namah’. This will help everyone regardless of their age or zodiac.
  • If you are not being able to sleep peacefully, keeping fennel (saunf) seeds under your pillow will help you improve Rahu’s effect.
  • I will strongly recommend you to chant Rahu Beej Mantra for 18000 times in the duration of 40 days.
  • I think you can benefit by keeping elephants made of silver in your house and using silver glass to drink anything.
  • Wearing an 8 faced Rudraksha will benefit you as it has 8 manifestations.
  • You should wear dark blue clothes as much as possible.
  • I suggest you fast on Saturday and have a meal after sunset.
  • I recommend you store water in the South – West corner as it can improve Rahu in your horoscope.
  • I also suggest you donate black and blue clothes and food to underprivileged people. It will be of great benefit as it pleases Rahu.
