How to Make Rahu Positive

July 14, 2014

Many people are afraid of Rahu, so it's important to shed some light on this shadow planet.

Rahu's Effects on Homes:

A home that is under the negative effects of Rahu will not have love, unity, or any peacefulness. There will be sibling rivalry and many fights and conspiracies between people. Such negative effects are not just limited to a particular home, but can also show their effects in a bigger area of residence - like certain neighborhoods or block of flats.

Rahu's negative effect makes children's growth weak; they start talking about going away to study in a hostel from a young age; or in grown up children the symptom shows in them talking about moving to another place once they get a job.

Here are some indications of a negative Rahu on one's home:

  • water will start getting stuck in certain areas of the home 
  • there will be a lot of dust and dirtiness in the home
  • plants will not prosper in such homes
  • one feels a dire need of light in the home after sunset; it will feel that the home is dull despite whatever lighting there may be.
  • servants or maids don't usually last long in such homes; even if one has employees in their business, then they too will not stay with them for long if Rahu is negative despite the good salary or perks you may give them.
  • there will be a lot of small issues in the home; for example: a shoe going missing; the milk going bad; a broken sandal..etc...the signs will be such that they will disturb your mind's peace despite the small size of the problems. These will stop you from thinking anything creative or constructive.
  • Rahu causes great struggles to people who are in the ages of 38 to 45 years in the home. Usually, the problems start after 36.
  • In general, all the members of the home will have stomach related problems. There may be a lucky one or two who may not have them.
  • A lot of money will get wasted. For example, buying things that may turn out to be really bad quality and hence had to be discarded.
  • There won't be happiness in such homes.
  • The family members will have some unknown fear in them at all times.
  • There may be wall cracks in the kitchen or in the roof.

Remedies for negative effects on one's home:

  • Put together some mishri, black lentils, gomed stone, and some silver in a small white cloth and either hang it at your home's entrance or bury it at the entrance.
  • Give respect to your pitra (your ancestors) everyday and also do some donations on their behalf sometimes. Do the remedies for pitra dosh.
  • Never write your name on the house - always name the home in your ancestors' name - example: in your grandmother, father, grandfather's name
  • Use the East side of your home more; sit there; eat there; put small flower pots/plants there; arrange for some food for birds in the East side of your home.

Rahu's Effects on Individuals:

A positive Rahu can help in civil services, politics, and engineering, to name a few.

A negative Rahu creates illusions in the mind, which may make a person give excuses for everything that they may be asked to do.

However, Rahu also intensifies energy, so if one works hard, then it will give even more energy to keep one going. This energy is unbridled and can even take one to the dark side - towards negativity (criminal mindset, gambler, etc.).

If one is going under the dasha or mahadasha of Rahu; or Rahu is in the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th house in the kundali chart and one is able to get some Guru in their life, then it can take one to great heights. So Rahu + Jupiter = great achievements. Even if one does not have a guru, it's important to be inspired by one, so perhaps putting a poster of the one that someone idolizes can greatly help them succeed in life.

If a child is greatly under the influence of Rahu, and not listening to anyone, then it's important for them to do a lot of sports; give them something that they will be allowed to break (if it's an adult - give them something like a motorcycle). 

If someone's Rahu is negative and they are going throug the dasha of Rahu, then there's a very high likelihood of the person becoming very negative and they may have quite a few of the following traits:

  • sleeping late at night & getting up late in the day,
  • can become dependent on alcohol/drugs/other substance,
  • may not be able to concentrate on anything for more than 15 minutes,
  • may feel like breaking things; will get involved in mobiles and technology too much;
  • one may waste the whole day in trying to fix something; 
  • can become violent - especially when someone has married and their Rahu dasha has also started, the couple needs to be very careful so their relationship does not break. 
  • too much excitement
  • not believing in any traditions or rituals
  • being angry and irritable
  • making many excuses and telling lies

=> all of these show that Rahu has started creating conditions that will create many problems in one's future.

Remedies for Rahu for Self:

  • Donate 4 coconuts in the temple on every Amavasya
  • If you aren't able to study, are fearul, are angry most of the time, feel like killing someone, then tie a piece of white sandalwood in a blue thread and wear it on you.
  • Add some Ashoka leaves and some drops of sandalwood perfume/oil to your bath water.
  • If you are able to procure pure sandalwood sherbet, then drink it first thing in the morning to get rid of the Rahu effects.
  • Do not eat left-over food or food that has become stale.
  • Do not eat late at night - ideally, you should have dinner within an hour after sunset.
  • Free some fish in water - buy a fish and then let it go free in a pond/river.
  • Feed fish.
  • Donate coconuts to people.
  • Drink and eat coconut in any form.
  • Start giving a full glass of water to people whom you want to give drinking water to.
  • Do not give or take any alcoholic or any other intoxicating substance.

Doing the mantra for Rahu is another way to make it positive. Say this out loud, then while whispering, and finally in your head: Om Raa(n) Rahve Namaha. Hear the correct pronunciation below:
