The chosen game-plan of a Rahu-Vṛścika script may include:

  • hyper-secretive; expedient secrecy

  • Thrilling surge of transformative power

  • seeking privilege of secret knowledge, concealed resources, transformative energy

  • ambition for unseen empowerments

  • desire to "penetrate the secret stash"

  • seeks hidden patterns

  • desire to reveal previously veiled layers of life, expose new identities, control the rejuvenating cycle of death-and-rebirth

  • craving for confidential, mystical knowledge

Rahu produces superior results in 3, 6, 10, and 11

Rahu-Vṛścika = chalakaraka is motivated by a great Ambition to Penetrate the Mysteries.

  • Quest for the Power of death and rebirth.

  • Seeks knowledge of the cycle of reincarnation

seeks rejuvenation, reconstitution, rebirth, reassignment, repurposing, recycling

empowers ambitious acquisition privileged empowerments via secretive or masked means

Risk-loving Rahu-Vṛścika rashi = fascinated by poisons, secrets, sudden changes, and emergency roles.

Rahu's desire for higher privilege on fast track may involve the native in relationships that are hidden, forbidden, and exotic.

Writers, especially writers in entertainment and politics

  • POTUS-04 USA-Constitution 1751-1836 James Madison [Shani-yuti-Rahu] JM wrote the first draft of the USA Constitution, co-wrote many of the Federalist Papers, and sponsored the USA Bill of Rights. Shani adds the legal emphasis, and Shani activates his Pushya lagna.

  • A Room of One's Own 1882-1941 Bloomsbury Virginia Woolf [Anuradha-4] Rahu in bhava-1 VW was a splendid prose writer and energetic publisher receiving broad public acclaim for her literary works, Her topics were largely barrier-breaching, taboo-twisting, and especially forbidden [Vṛścika]. Verboten sexual topics included women's political and financial domination by men, along with disclosure of her own childhood sexual abuse (by her elder stepbrothers), her adult bisexuality and homosexuality, and in her later years, suicidal wishes.

Great leap forward into Transformative, Destruction-and-Rebirth Privilege

Find Professor Kuja and know His effects in the radix and navamsha. Rahu will amplify Kuja's effects, and also the effects of any other graha occupying Vṛścika.

  • In 1995 during the Budha bhukti of her Rahu mahadasha, Ms. Fonda began producing voluminous media products such as books, videos, photographs; and she was involved the extensive marketing-advertising required to facilitate those sales. Budha in third-from-Rahu.

Snake-like Naga gets fascinated by the goal of privileged entitlement to the prize of Total Control . When quite near to the goal and nearly assured of success, Naga then gets ejected via pretentious transformation.

Competition and vitality entitlements

Rahu magnifies manipulative and secretive behaviors.

Rahu-Vṛścika takes a Great Leap Forward by re-inventing oneself. There is often a tragic period of near-annihilation followed by a rebirth into considerable empowerment.

Wants substantial but largely hidden power via subterfuge.

Gives desire to assume and maintain control, occultism, fascination with the cycle of birth and death, potentially deep healing powers based on familiarity with Conditions of dematerialization and survivor's realism.

  • Iran-Shah 1919-1980 Aryamehr Mohamed Reza Pahlavi [Visaka-4] [nīcha-Chandra-yuti-Rahu] destroyed the multi-party elections in Iran and created a vicious secret police who used torture and imprisonment to help him maintain control

  • Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst [Anuradha-4]t (11, revenues) ++ while Rahu's ruler Arudra-Kuja-6 enemies * WRH secretive business dealings, theft (6) of treasures from historic sites, and lies of yellow journalism were criminally accused many times. Yet clever Rahu thrives in loopholes and exceptions. Neither Hearst nor his massive economic machine (11) were harmed until everything collapsed suddenly (Rahu sudden fall) following the Great Depression.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry-8-Tudor [Anuradha-3] famously wrested control of the extensive and rich lands owned by the Roman-rite Catholic Church, transferring their ownership from Rome to Britain by declaration Rahu in bhava-3 * Vṛścika, 3, ambition expressed via publication of documents and making declarations. HT then developed extensive propaganda (3) to spread the word of his new powers. He wrote (3) simple morality plays and paid for hundreds of ensemble troups (3) to go into the countryside to perform the Message (3) for the peasant audience.

Can become extremely focused on the revelatory events, discovery or recovery process.

  • Raja Yoga 1863-1902 Swami Vivekananda [Jyeṣtha-2] [bhava-12] tantric spiritual discovery

In Vṛścika, Rahu's desire-inflaming passions acquire Mangala-like exploratory and transformative characteristics.

Seeks hidden, obscured, or forbidden experiences

  • Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 assembly line Henry Ford Rahu in bhava-1 at a time when social convention dictated a rigidly pious public adherence to a narrowly conformist interpretation of Christian doctrine, Ford openly discussed his belief in reincarnation and his interest in pagan mystical religions. (Latin paga = Eng. Tribal) . Rahu drishti to philosophical, preaching, principled-convictions [Surya-Budha-9]

Rahu amplifies Mangala's two bhava, by intensity and by days

  • [Rahu-Mesha-Arya] or Rahu-Vṛścika = effectively triples the length of all Mangala bhukti in the Vimshottari dasha.

  • In the total picture, the two bhava which are ruled by Mangala are very much amplified by Rahu.

  • Because Rahu periods immediately follow Mangala bhukti, the potency of the Mangala-ruled bhava is increased.

  • Increase = not only in terms of psychological and material intensity of experience.

  • Increase = also by tripling the amount of time normally allocated to functions of Mangala (functions of bhava-activating rulership, karaka expressions, effects of winner of planetary war.

Rahu intakes drishti of Mangala

Passion for recycling, rebirth, try-again, never surrender

  • Ford Motor Co. 1863-1947 assembly line Henry Ford started numerous engine [Kuja] manufacturing companies. Each time he failed, losing the investors' monies without much concern [Ketu-7 unconcerned with partnership]. AF Rahu in bhava-1 persisted, rebirthing the motorized carriage idea in different guises until it materialized. Finally with the Model-T he achieved the viable result.


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

Trajectory via Occult Knowledge, Destruction and Rebirth

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

  • The experience begins with some variety of catastrophic change (according to the bhava) whichnearly annihilates the native either physically, psychologically, or spiritually.

  • A typical starting scene = a confidential or clandestine environment such as 'private banking', secret police, psychiatric office or medical surgery.

An enunciation of the cycle of destruction and rebirth of the personal attributes is required.

Shock from inside, shock from outside

the native might engage in self-destructive behavior driven by an obsessive attraction * akarshana * , or the destruction of the personality or the body might start (or seem to start) from completely external circumstances, such as a natural disaster or the sudden death of a family member. One might start the cycle with a nearly terminal disease, have a dangerous surgery, develop a shocking obsession, or learn a terrible secret.

The longer the Rahu period, the more opportunity for dramatic development. After the catastrophic event, there is recovery from the disaster . If Rahu is associated with a Maraka graha, the recovery may be punctuated by aftershocks.

Rahu brings important new actors into the life scene, and these actors are typically from a different cultural background. The native is reborn by initiation in to the culture of the new actor.

One needs to acquire or remember elements of this new actor's worldview in order for the native to make the leap into one's next life phase.

QUOTATION Das comments "Rahu is in Scorpio, and Ketu is in Taurus."


  • much strife and struggle for living,

hardly any achievement worth a name

  • Excited when challenged.

  • Touches extremes resulting in misfortunes.

Hidden motives and energies seldom find an expression.

Fortune through a noble partner,

  • though you survive your spouse.

Honor and recognition from the government and learned people.

  • Fair and just."
