Rahu-Karkata = the chalakaraka is motivated by a great Ambition to Nurture and Protect one's family, the land, and one's people.

  • Quest for the Nest.

Rahu-Karkata is fascinated by "parent-protector" roles rooted in management of lands, farms, forests, fisheries: e.g. groundskeeper, game warden, fisheries guardian of the Old Wats, environmental protector.

  • Mad Monk 1869-1916 Romanov Grigori Rasputin * a staunch royalist, he referred to the Tsar and Tsarina as "Papa" and "Mama"

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich + Guru-yuti-Zukra* postured as arch-conservative guardian of a parochial way of life

Rahu may seek to acquire privilege via pretentious caretaker relationships.

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk was a financially privileged planter who believed that plantation slaves were a class of subhuman beings who could not care for themselves due to their low intelligence. Polk asserted that slaves were agricultural property, to be bought and sold at the will of their owner; however, owner-protectors were morally responsible to shelter, nourish, and provide basic religious training to their slaves.

Self-elevation via unusual, exotic, taboo-breaking or fast-track approach to transport.

Instinct to get ahead (Rahu) via carrying:

  • ships, airplanes, boats, wagons, trucks, lorries, vehicular transfer, ferries, carriages, cars, carts, cargo

Tremendous desire for property ownership:

  • homes, farms, gardens, ranches, groves, estates.

Rahu seeks elite privileged, socially important lands which may be held either in the public trust or via private ownership.


Snake-like Naga gets fascinated by the goal of privileged entitlement to the prize of Deep-Rooted Security in the Land. When quite near to the goal and nearly assured of success, Naga then may get ejected via pretentious foundations.


Great leap forward into Patriotic or Land Ownership Privilege

  • UK-PM Path to Power 1925-2013 Margaret Thatcher Rahu-Karkata-9 Samka KSY * ideology. During her Rahu Mahadasha this famous mother-of-two led a principled (9) war to reclaim the small, far-distant territory of barely populated, Spanish-speaking Falkland Islands off the coast of Argentina, and oversaw a massive theory-driven (9) overhaul of the British economic systems of property, profit, and taxation. Karkata-wise, although world opinion found the land-claims (Karkata) rather preposterous (Rahu, the British public (Karkata) was enchanted and Mrs. Thatcher's popularity as a defending patriot reached an all-time high.

By contrast,

  • The popular youth culture figure Oops 1981- entertainer Britney Spears has a passionate-for-earnings placement Rahu-Karkata-11. Rahu-Karkata signals a hunger for the privileges accorded to nurturers and caretakers, and the common Rahu-Karkata over-reaching . First marriage to a Karkata native.

Find Professor Chandra and determine Soma's effects in the radix and navamsha.

Professor Rahu may amplify Chandra's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Karkata.

In Mithuna, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Chandra-like nurturing and sheltering characteristics.


Psycho-emotional entitlement

Rahu very intense in Soma's rashi

Rahu magnifies the whole range of mind's astral awareness, including sensitivity to deep currents of nurturing emotion in self and others. Intensely desires security and rhythmic stability, is never satisfied with depth of family bonding.

Can never have enough opportunity to give and receive parental love and care.

Yet, the native is by nature emotionally fluctuating and changing every day. Highly unstable parent, no matter the Great Display.

Will often make a great display of parenting, or patriotism, or both - but the display is intended to attract attention and create opportunities for acquisition of higher privileges. It is not a display of contentment.

Can develop a parent complex, taking care of everyone within reach. Has a special attraction * akarshana * to those who are 'separated' from their roots: destitute, homeless, and stateless.

Can become extremely focused on protecting their family, home and homeland from invaders - psychic or physical. Yet, the native also seeks public validation of the parenting role, in which the native feels unstable.

Professor Rahu is an interloper, potentially a fraud, and usually a poseur who wants to be included in the world of the gods and their privileges. But, Rahu is an illegitimate being in the world of those who earned their status via penance and endurance (Shani, the Old Ones). Thus Rahu is always working overtime, trying to receive legitimation in a role for which He is unqualified. His methods are devious and surreptitious, driven by a deep hunger for validation which is never satisfied.

Rahu's hunger for validation of parenting-sheltering-protecting legitimacy (remember ) ironically can cause the native to open one's home to psychic or physical invasion, such as the tabloid press or social welfare agencies.

Mahadasha of Rahu for Rahu-Karkata
  • General trends, environments, experiences of the Rahu mahadasha

Trajectory via Patriotism, Ethnic folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms, and Care of the Land

  • Mahadasha of Rahu and most bhukti of Rahu (depending on Rahu's angle to the mahadasha pati) will exhibit the script qualities of Karkata the Shelter.

  • The typical starting scene involves parenting, schooling, and protective duties, such as military defense or land-care stewardship.

The Rahu experience begins with patriotic or parental instinct (according to the bhava) which grounds and stabilizes the native within one's home culture either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

An enunciation of the art of laying foundations is required. The environment supports every type of"roots "activity such as teaching of customary manners, provision of homes and sheltered space, dealing with vehicles.

The important actors typically hold rank of parent or grandparent, parochial authority, school-master, examiner, or licensor.

Foundation from inside, protection from outside

  • the native might engage in defensive behavior driven by a sudden, obsessive attraction * akarshana * to an unusual type of security. Everyone in this Rahu-Karkata environment is involved in placing and guarding the"roots " of an ethnic culture, deep in the ecology of the land

  • The rooting and attachment of the personality integrity or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as parenting, acquiring a home or completing education in the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of one's people. One might start the cycle with a desire to feel more secure.

  • Also one may accept the role of pre-eminent female (Chandra) in a family, accepting the central role of Mother (Soma) in exotic circumstances, such as becoming the caretaker (Karkata) of a children lacking a mother. The female native with Rahu-Karkata often finds that motherhood has some taboo-breaking attributes, both in regard to her childhood experience of women who are mothers and the native 's own mothering trajectory.

  • For example, one may be effectively raised by female house servants and nurses rather than by the titular but absent mother. Or one may allow servants (usually exotic) or relatives to raise one's own children.

Circling the Wagons

  • The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After embarking upon quest to obtain better emotional and material security, there is continuous development of the instinct to protect against invaders. Land ownership and property management feature on this trajectory.

  • Rahu-Karkata is an excellent placement for The professional land-use expert, national defense, property management, parent-teacher association, wetlands conservationist .

If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha

  • the onset of the period of intensive self-protection (18 yrs for the major period and varying lengths for each bhukti and pratyantardasha era) may be punctuated by deaths or severe loss from fear of invasion or expulsion from the home. A death or abrupt separation can serve as the 'opening bell' of this mahadasha.

  • The initial onset of a crisis caused by anxiety over sovereignty and security can be self-inflicted due to Rahu's restless discontent to get moving toward the higher privileges, although typically at the time of Rahu + Maraka loss of previous conditions of stability of ethnic custom, the native blames the nation-state or 'circumstances beyond our control'.

  • However psychically it is the native 's ambition to catapult oneself into the higher powered realm which eradicates previous ethnic and national identity to make way for new loyalties and a new trajectory toward the top levels of social recognition.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. the native is networked into the culture of the new actors, and may be asked to accept additional connections, outside the community of one's upbringing.

Although it involves a great deal of targeted effort, one needs to acquire or remember elements of the new actors worldview in order for the native to make the leap into one's next life phase.
