RAHU – KETU PEYARCHI TRANSIT
8 January 2016
Shadow planets Rahu and Ketu are ever retrograde in their motion. Forever chasing Sun and Moon in order that they might avenge their beheading by Sun and Moon after the Churning of the Ocean. With such action, they cause the eclipse of Sun and Moon. Where eclipses happen, the nakshatra is spoiled for the next six months. As shadow planets, they move through the birth chart transit signs with eternal backwards moving motion and every 18 months, change signs and the all-important Rahu-Ketu axis – which has significance for nations and their leadership in particular changes. All is change in the body of time and space. They also elicit, by their transit and retrograde motion, changes within the human person. Rahu and Ketu affect all with their transits. During January of 2016, Lord Rahu Bhagavan and Lord Ketu Bhagavan will change signs (peyarchi).
The scriptures and sastras speak of symbolisms of Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are supposed to be serpents. One is the Head; the other is the Tail. Lord Vishnu is reclining on the serpent bed. Lord Shiva is wearing serpents as ornaments on the head, and around the wrists and hands. Lord Subramanya is always with a serpent. Lord Krishna danced on Kalinga, the many-headed serpent. There are many fables in ancient Hindu scriptures where Serpents played important roles in building or destroying the destiny of an individual or a nation. The Cobra is said to obey certain laws and it is expected to conform to Truth. It will never bite ordinarily. It has a dreadful yet attractive hood. In the Puranas it is said that Cobras are endowed with gems of extreme brilliance.
Arthava Veda gives the following mantra:
May we get welfare from the planets and Moon. May we get welfare from the Sun as well as Rahu
So we take the sacred narrative given above that the actions of Rahu and Ketu are in fact loka sevanam, actions taken for our welfare on this our home planet, Bhumi Devi (Mother Earth). This action of the two shadow planets, causing eclipses, is in fact for our spiritual progress: what is dark must be brought out into the light. What is in our birth chart must be experience, we must do the seva indicated by the 6th house and serve with selfless love, nishkama karma; thus do we multiply love on the Earth as our service reaches the heart of the other, wherein resides as hrudaya vasi, Easwara in the form of God.
Rahu is currently transiting Virgo where it is in Uttara Phalguna nakshatra. On 8 January 2016, Rahu will transit to Simha rasi (LEO), Purva Bhadrapada nakshatra For a long time, Rahu has been residing in Virgo and Uttara Phalguna asterism. This has been causing some to ignore illness and body signals within, and to grasp and pursue advance in their world. Also ignored is the true purpose of guru sevanam, since Virgo is the natural 6th house and the house of service to humanity. Degree conjunction of Rahu-Jupiter will happen in Simha rasi (Leo) toward the end of January. Plans for expansion may progress without a solid foundation, as Jupiter approaches sandhi and is depleted of energy. Self control, self discipline and self-respect will be needed at this time.
Ketu is currently transiting Pisces. On 8 January 2016, Ketu will transit to Kumbh rasi (Aquarius), Purva Bhadrapada nakshatra. Rule is Kuja vat Ketu, Ketu behaves like Mars. Aquarius is an air sign, and ruled by vata Sani Bhagwan – therefore several influences on Ketu in Kumbh rasi. Ketu in Aquarius can have disconnected social media, disconnection from world and peer groups, fire and air (agni and vata) causing influences. Location of janma Ketu, Kuja and Sani along with Moon (presiding deity of mind) are important to determine influences and remedies needed.
