Ketu and Raahu-1
Raahu's Mahaa-Dashaa is for 18 years.
Raahu in Lagna / Ketu in 7th or vice versa, it will spoil your mind,
body, face, marital life.
Raahu in 7th gives company of bad people.
Conjunction of Raahu with Moon/Venus in horoscope of the native tends to
love marriage even though the Moon is in own Nakshatra (Shravan)
(1) When transiting Raahu crosses the Sun (as positioned in Birth chart),
there will be considerable progress in life and its pattern. Sun will be
in Capricorn for those born between 15th January and 14th February of any year.
(2) When Transiting Raahu joins the Natal Moon (those born in Birth Stars:
U-Aashaadhaa 2, 3, & 4 Pad, Shravan and Dhanishthaa 1, 2 Pad) one will
have to shoulder new responsibilities that will benefit the person. All
their wishes will now be fulfilled. Those who are in communication field
like writers, players, publicists, visual communications, poets etc, will
prosper and earn better during the period, if Raahu crosses Mercury in
Natal chart of these persons.
(3) When Transiting Rahu crosses the Natal Mars, the persons involving in
sports will gain in reputation, popularity and money, while some are also
likely to involve sexually bringing in ill repute. Avoid all ill habits,
particularly smoking, drinking and consuming unhealthy food, which could
find to cause serious health hazard later.
(4) If transiting Raahu crosses the position of Jupiter in Natal Chart,
the finance of that person will grow much and his status will be satisfactory.
(5) When Raahu crosses one’s Natal Venus in this house, he/she will be
compassionate and good thinks fast and spontaneously unasked for, with
least effort. Many will be fortunate to get married. While Raahu transits
the position of Saturn in this house in Natal Chart, one will bare
responsibilities with ease and will discharge them intelligently. The
health of the person could have problems in this period.
(6) While transiting Raahu crosses this house where the Natal Raahu is
positioned, the person will save money (earnings) and this is not a time
to change the course of business, employment or agreements, which could
land the person in trouble. Pick and choose the possible load of work and
never go against the wish of your seniors at home or work place. This has
to be viewed as a very careful time.
(7) When Raahu crosses the Natal Ketu, the results are same as Rahu
crossing the natal position of Mars as in item 3 above.
--Transiting Ketu with Radical Sun in Cancer will bring deception. While
passing through the house where natal Moon is housed, the person may be
separated from mother, work place could turn to be hell and gambling and
speculations will result in heavy loss and despair.
--Transiting Ketu the natal Mars in Cancer, during that time, the person
would commit lot of mistakes and could not find easy remedies. One may be
transferred without reason or rhyme. Do not try to buy new assets in any
form. There could be some confusion at home. One should handle them with
submission and judicial judgment of actions.
--When Ketu crosses natal Venus, disappoints in love to a prospective
partner is evident, and complications may magnify the small differences.
Some end up with separation or divorce.
--Transiting Ketu, while in Cancer, where Saturn is deposited in the birth
chart, would cause more harm than good. It could bring more enemies than
friends. Husband and wife could separate for a flimsy reason. Emotions
could be cause for all reactions to bring adverse effects.
--Transiting Ketu in the house of Natal Raahu, one would suddenly become
sluggish, lazy, and pessimistic in any action of necessity. The mental
outlook could cause anxiety to others who know them before.
--Ketu crossing Natal Ketu will have the same effects as detailed above,
when Ketu crossing natal Mars in item 11 above.
Please note: The above details relate to the respective planets are
positioned in your birth chart (Natal Chart), and in the period Raahu or
Ketu transits through that house.

Raahu and Ketu in Natal Chart from Mathereswar’s Phala Deepika:
"Pathonameenaligatha syaRAHO rdhasa vipakhe mahitham cha saukhyam|
Deshaadhipatyam nara vaahan pati rdhasavadhane sakalasya nasa ||
Sl. 16; Adhyaya 18||
Raahu occupying Virgo, Pisces or Scorpio in a birth chart, bestow upon the
native, during his Dashaa – honor, lordship of lands, vehicles and attendants.
All these, however, are liable to be taken away (by him) at the conclusion of
the Raahu Dashaa. (Raahu Mahaa Dashaa spreads for 18 Years)
Further, should Raahu be conjoined with a benefic (ie., Jupiter, The Waxing
Moon, Venus and unaffected Mercury) and be posited in the Natal chart in
an auspicious house (ie, 1, 2, 4, 9, 10, & 11), will raise the person to
great heights in life with wealth and position. His desires will be
fulfilled in this Dashaa and will enjoy happiness in his house, with
steady accumulation of wealth.
During the Dashaa period of Ketu, the native will be oppressed by enemies,
lenders, thieves and government. He could receive wounds from weapons,
develop decease caused by heat, earn bad name in his community, and find
living in isolation. (Dashaa Period of Ketu is 7 years) The chief indications
of Raahu Bhukti in Raahu’s Maha-Dashaa are illness through poison/ water,
sex with other man’s wife (or married women have illicit relationship ),
separation from or loss of one’s near and dear ones, hot exchange of words,
and mental torture through wicked people.
While it so, the native could enjoy a spell of happiness, inclined to
worship God, have pleasant association with charming women and discussion
of sacred lore during the sub-period of Jupiter in the Maha-Dashaa of
Raahu (and these could be illusions to welcome unpleasantness)
