Rahu and Ketu Transit which takes effect from 9th September 2017 till 23rd March 2019
Today we are discussing Transit of Rahu & Ketu from 9th Sept 2017 – till 23rd March 2019.
First question will arise that what is transit?
The Answer is: — Transit means the passage of a heavenly body a planet through the Zodiac.
We prepare the birth chart on the basis of time, date of birth & place of birth.
To judge the transit, we need an EPHEMERIS for the year for which the good or bad effects by transits are to be judged.
The transit system consists of appraising the position of the nine planets at a particular time for which the good or bad effects are to be ascertained together with the planetary position and the rising sign in the birth chart.
One of the basic theories of Indian Astrology is that all influences of the planets give their fruit through the MOON SIGN that the Moon being the heavenly body nearest to the earth, the influences filter through the Moon, because Moon governs the vision, happiness, harmony & health.
In Indian Astrology to judge the transit from the natal Moon chart.
The sign in which the Moon is at Birth is popularly called the RASHI of the native. Rashi literally means a cluster or a heap. But since the signs in Indian Astrology are identified with constellations which contain a heap or cluster of stars, forming a particular geometric pattern.
RAHU & KETU , the two nodes of the Moon, take about 19 months to transit through a Sign. They are unique in the sense that they are always transiting Retrograde indicating KARMA from the Previous lives. RAHU & KETU are the mysterious unseen points in space causing the Eclipses. They are not technically planets but their influence is so significant that they are given the status of planets. These two are next in importance to the other two planets – JUPITER and SATURN.
In Indian astrology RAHU & KETU are known as two invisible planets. Rahu or North node of the Moon and Ketu or South node of the Moon are actually the point of intersection of the paths of the Sun & the Moon where they move on the celestial sphere. The point of intersection where Moon is rising above the earth during transiting is called RAHU or Dragon’s Head or Ascending Node of the Moon or the North Node of the MOON, the point of intersection where Moon is declining below the earth is called KETU or Dragon’s Tail or Descending Node of the Moon or South Node of the Moon AND they are 180 degrees apart from each other.
These nodes are quite important to astrologers, astronomers & numerologists. These nodal are not fixed points in the outer space but more ‘’backwards’’ that is always Retrograde and never direct.
Because in ancient times with the help of these nodes exact dates of the solar and lunar eclipse could be determined by astrologers and astronomers.
