Rahu in the houses

Rahu in 1st house

Unusual, fascinating, bi-polar, outcast, deformed. Their personality is boundary breaking and they often feel special or chosen in some way. Thei personality may show some inconsistency like mania, depression or bi-polar. Some kind of physical deformity is possible. This could be something subtle or it could be major depending on the power of lagnesha and other factors. These natives often have the ability to fascinate people, and since Rahu rules over magnetism, people are often drawn in by this fascination. They may be attractive or repulsive, but it’s likely they will manage to blend both of these traits into the moment. 

They are often non-conformist living on the fringes of society or freely mixing with all people regardless of social position. They are often rebels without a cause putting themselves before everyone and everything else. They are likely to do almost anything to be noticed. 

Many may be affected by fatal alcohol syndrome or other debilities from the womb. Rahu can be recognised by wide set eyes, scanty hair (one the head, body and face), a smoky appearance, some oily or snakelike qualities, and certainly there will be something foreign (mixed race) looking about them compared to the typical features of their family. Some believe that the father could be someone other than the mother’s husband. At the very least this is likely to be questioned at some level. 

Rahu in 2nd house

Lies, falser values, corrupt banking, unusual image, creepy smile, impure food. Image is everything to these people. There is usually something unusual about the face they show to the world: the way they speak, dress, the stories they tell, the lineage they claim to be from. Something about their image just doesn’t quite fit who they really are. They may have something unusual or deformed about their face, mouth, eyes, or hair style. 

They like to project wealth that they don’t have and debt is a common outcome. Money really does have a way of burning a hole in their pocket. They have no sense of the true value of anything and they have no qualms about appropriating someone else’s hard earned income. Some kind of hoarding is also common with this placement, and since they are incapable of properly judging value, their hoards are usually filled with worthless junk.

Their speech usually comes across as insincere (if not outright lies). But they are often great storytellers with a liberal use of improper language. Speech impediments are not uncommon with this placement.  They are prone to illnesses of over consumption and likely eat meat and drink alcohol in the quest for what they believe the good life to be.

They can be the worst kinds of Hippocrates claiming false lineage and never living up to the values they claim to follow. This actually allows them to do pretty good in society for a while, but eventually the smoke clears and they are exposed for their lies and corruption. 

Rahu in 3rd house

Fake new, criminal gang, mixed messages, dirty mentality, false courage. These people can often be found mixing amongst unusual groups and possibly criminal gangs. They are so fascinated by teams and tribal affiliations that they get in way over their heads. They want to be seen as special because of these group affiliations and they can be highly manipulative of their group, tribe, team or gang. And often these groups are on some kind of mission to bend the rules or break taboos. 

They may be famous for their urgent and ambitious messaging style, but as the smoke clears (and it always does), their false reports will be plain for all to see. They are masters at harnessing the power of social media and some might even be effective hackers. Their mixed messages and foggy communication brings a pronounced confusion to interpersonal relationships as others wonder just what kind of message they were trying to send out. Their gestures are often exaggerated in some way; this includes a kind of insincere communication style. 

Rahu 3rd often signifies smoking, or the inhalation of thick oily smoke that will have its effect on the lungs. Ear problems like tinnitus can be seen with this placement and it’s likely they will have some kind of deformity of the shoulders, hands and arms. Crooked fingers and knobby knuckles is the most common manifestation of this placement. 

We see a person’s mentality in the 3rd house so Rahu here makes them unusually often criminal in their intent since they don’t play by the same rules as the rest of us. Rahu’s effect on the kama trine ensures that these people will break the rules to satisfy their desires. They can be exceedingly courageous, but in many ways it’s a false courage that tends to get them in over their heads. Hobbies are also seen in the 3rd house so they will likely have unusual, smokey and boundary breaking hobbies. Since small commercial ventures are also a part of 3rd house we can also find these natives doing some kind of shady business. 

The 3rd house is the first upachaya and Rahu is said to do well in these houses. Some astrologers say that he is exalted in gemini, and it’s true one can do well in the material world with this placement, but it’s the kind of doing well that comes with the suffering of the insatiable desire to fulfil their desires. This position works well for used cars salesmen, cheats, media activists. [Note: regarding journalism or messaging that the Sun will seek after truth and Venus will seek balance.]

Rahu in 4th house

Boundary issues, unstable foundations, learning disabilities, environmental pollution, no sense of belonging. This is a very difficult placement since it affects the very foundation of our life, mother, home, education. Mother is often ill or absent from a person’s early life. At best she would have been inconsistent in her motherly nurturing affections. There may be some kind of unconventional parentage that disrupted the early rhythms, routines and habits. These people are often raised on the wrong side of the tracks, in factory districts, on or near polluted lands. 

As children these people were often disruptful in the classroom and it’s possible they suffered from some kind of learning disability. If they get to university it’s likely that this too will be disrupted by some unique set of circumstances.  It’s often due to the unusual circumstances of their early childhood that they will have difficulty fitting in anywhere. They often go away from their birth place and live amongst other cultures in order to feel any kind of comfort, but any true sense of relaxation, contentment or release will elude them. These natives often remain renters and if they do have home or land they often come by it from false pretence: bank fraud, squatters, constant problems with landlords and caretakers who do not have proper boundaries will never provide the kind of foundation needed to establish solid roots in a place or cultural community. Some will seek to defend the land rights of others. And this position is ripe for cultural appropriation. 

Nannies, babysitters, step parents, early childhood teachers, gardeners and others who take on caretaking and parental roles without being fully legitimate will be seen with Rahu in 4th. Ultimately these people never learned proper boundaries and will invade the physical and emotional space of others and do not have the skills to keep others from doing the same to them. No matter what they do to put up boundaries there will always be a weak point somewhere. 

Rahu in the 5th house

Drama queen, gambler, forbidden lovers, narcissist. These people want all the attention, they feed off the attention and the drama they create, and their false sense of entitlement allows them to create a lot of drama. Social media influencers and others who project any kind of fantasy life that is really just smoke and mirrors would have this kind of combination (5th owner in 12th house would certainly ensure the fantasy part). 

They are gamblers and risk takers. They could be the grandmother cheating at cards, the politician accused of insider trading or the sports fixer seeking advantage. They often want to get some kind of advantage from their staged creative expressions. They like to break the rules just for fun. They are often obsessed with the idea of romantic love and they could be serial daters or tinder professionals. Their desperate search for “true love” often leads them down the road to heartbreak. This is also the position of the forbidden lover and illegitimate children (mars aspect can bring an abortion while Jupiter’s aspect can bring many (often adopted)  children. These people will often use their children to get privilege. In poor chart we can find welfare moms and other kinds of negligent parents who use their children for their own selfish ends. 

They are fascinated by that slight increase in heart rate that comes switch gambling and romance. Rahu here can also give someone an irregular heart beat (especially if sun is involved).  It’s often said that these natives have very sharp minds, but they often prove to be more clever than truly intelligent as Rahu in 5th can cause them to miscalculate (especially if Rahu is influencing mercury as well), make a mistake or obfuscate the matter somehow. 

Creativity and originality are seen in the 5th so all of this gets a little smoky, certainly unique, taboo and boundary breaking. They can misrepresent their productivity and they are all about productivity: more and more and more, it’s never enough. And the eventual disposal of the smoke will reveal the deeper truths and in the end they often end up without any real friends, just snakes and backbiters. 

Rahu in the 6th house

Provocation, exploitation, playing the victim. The 6th house is the 2nd upachaya house where Rahu is said to do well. He is often called the king maker in this position. He’s at home in this house of crime and accusation where he can exploit people’s vulnerabilities for their own gain. They can be masters at playing the victim role and know just how to exploit and manipulate a bad situation. Because of Rahu’s smoky ways it can be difficult to distinguish the exploited from the exploiter. These people make very good corrupt officials capable of engineering scandals while maintaining their own innocence. Virgo is the innocent virgin and this status, though likely untrue, is used to gain advantage somehow. They might be working behind the scenes as disaster capitalists pretending to help while exploiting the situation for maximum personal benefit. Ambulance chasers (lawyers), Dr Feel-good (drug dealers), bullies and others who seek to exploit the marginalised people will have this placement. Sometimes it’s the subtleties of a healthcare career that thieves in unbalanced situations. Things are never what they seem when Rahu is involved. 

Rahu in the 6th might the the provocateur who loves to start fights, poke the sleeping bear and lure people into the trap. It’s the young vixen in the short skirt attracting the wrong kind of attention and claiming innocence. It’s the” protester” instigating violence to justify a heavy police crackdown.  Rahu in 6th house is fascinated by drugs, crime, debt, war, disagreement, prostitution, illness and every kind fo imbalance. This can be a very dangerous place for Rahu to get in over his head. Someone may be using medicinals improperly and will be inconsistent in following any kind of therapy. They often avoid personal responsibility at all costs.

They may have unusual enemies or illnesses, stomach problems and digestive issues are common with this Rahu. They are likely to prefer (or even practice) alternative forms of healing which can go either way.  We also see peoples pets and service personnel in the 6th house. Both of which will likely be exotic or unusual in some way. And it’s possible they will complain that “good help is hard to find.” 

Rahu in the 7th house

Taboo relationships, deals with the devil, people pleaser. Rahu in the 7th house is notorious for difficult relationships. These people tend to think they need a partner to save them and they will agree to almost anything to get it. Fulfilling their agreements is quite another matter, but they are often offering more than they can do or they are saying they can do things that they cannot. 

They like taboo relationships, exotic partners are common: cultural mixing, same-sex partners, religious differences, large gaps in age, polygamy or open relationships are just some of the possibilities with this. These days it can even lead to a kind of devout celibacy (which is certainly strange in this day and age). Cheating, or being cheated on is common. They seek agreement and will use any means to get it. It can be very difficult for them to say no and once they’ve compromised they often find they’ve agreed to more than they bargained for. They often cannot see the agreement for what it is or their partner for who they are. And the terms of the contract are soon broken. 

This is another position that can give illegal business practices. They are more than willing to make a deal with the devil to get ahead. This is like the oil business or any other pollution generating business. But every kind of dodgy deal can come out of this Rahu placement. 

There is something about these people that is out of tune, they lack balance and harmony and seek equity through unequal terms. They can be very diplomatic and counsellors and advisors who break the rules or deal with taboo topics might  have this in their chart.  This Rahu can cause fertility problems or sexual debility (check Moon, Venus & Mars). 

Rahu in the 8th house

This is a very dangerous place for Rahu since his fascination leads a person thru the field of sex, death, catastrophe, guilt and transformation. They often like kinky or unusual sex and sexual partners. They can try all kinds of crazy things and still not be satisfied. They can become sex addicts with this (but we need to see more than this to confirm). They can take part in all kinds of risky behaviour and will likely cheat death several times before pushing their luck just a little too far. 

They may be obsessed with intimacy seeking to know what lies just below the surface. This can make them good researchers or detectives. Negative placements with this Rahu may cause them to stock their prey. They can be very sneaky and move around undetected.  

Their focus will be on the wealth of others: their partners’ wealth, the value of trusts, the hunger for inheritance, or merely for easy unearned wealth. Sometimes these people marry rich, get a disappointing inheritance, or live off the money or trusts, but they might also be the one who merely leeches off their partner; much better at taking than giving. 

They can be good in emergency situations, but similar urges as those seen with Ketu in 6th come up here as they seek to gain advantage thru catastrophic circumstances, emergencies, secrets. And secrets are a big part of the 8th house. This goes along with research and detective work, but there are many other ways they might use the secrets they know for their own advantage. This can lead them to occult, astrology, tarot and other methods of divination. 

My teacher calls Rahu in 8th, the “wanderer.” Their fascination leads them to cross the bridge, go to the other side of the tracks, enter the forbidden forest, and go overseas. Since the 8th house is all about sudden events, it’s never long before their fascination has moved on to something else. 

Rahu in the 9th house

Rahu in the 9th house hungry for the big picture. They want faith and philosophy, they are often travellers going to places that are sacred to them. These pilgrimages are likely to be unusual like their beliefs; but they will be passionate about their beliefs often holding them regardless of any proof in the contrary. They are often insincere Hippocrates who often assume the role of priest, professor or father figure without having the correct credentials. Rahu makes expedient use of religion in this position and will claim to follow whichever path will get them what they want or elevate their social standing. They often feel as though they are uniquely positioned to expound the higher truths despite their confusion on the topic. They can take on the external image of spirituality much easier than they can acquire the internal feeling of faith. Of course this kind of spiritual posturing can lead to a “holier than you” attitude. 

This can be a very political or ideological position as one seeks out the winning doctrine. The actual ideology doesn’t matter so much as the benefits that can be gained by professing that ideology.  

There is likely to be something unusual about the father figure and it’s possible there will even be some confusion over who one’s real father really is. Guru’s and mentors will be unusual in some way: often false prophets or fake gurus.

Rahu in the 10th house

This is the third upachaya house that Rahu is said to do well in. His fascination for leadership is very good at climbing the ladder while skipping a few steps in between. They tend to get positions of leadership without following the usual stepwise process. Of course they get in over their heads, but they also learn fast. There can be all kinds of disruptions in their career, but their ambition rarely falters. 

They will likely be seen as outcasts in their career and there are likely to be some stains upon their reputation. They could achieve the top spot for some time, but they usually fall before they are ready. They can also be the co-worker who seems to assume the role of the boss even if they really don’t have any legitimate claim to authority. But some people will also be known for their taboo or boundary breaking activity. What exactly they do can be hard to see through the smoke and mirrors, but they will fascinate people by their actions.  

Since social reputation is important to them, they seek to be seen and known and have little concern for home and comfort. They will easily take a job transfer for a better position. They may work irregular hours or face other irregularities in the office. These are the people who are also likely to abuse their position of power somehow, or perhaps they will merely sow confusion.   They can suffer from problems related to the skeletal system or the knees. 

Rahu in the 11th house

This is the 4th upachaya house that Rahu excels in. As the house of gain and profit, Rahu injects a strong dose of greed. The profit motive has become the great illusion for these people. This can be a very financially rewarding position for Rahu. Money money money everywhere and they don’t mind bending the rules to make it. 

They want more than anything to appear as a success, especially financially successful (Rahu in 2nd house has some similarities); they want to be seen as someone who has achieved their hopes and dreams in life. But is you ask them about their hopes and goals in life their answer will be unclear. They don’t really know what they want, or what they want is some strange unusual thing that can never be achieved. Rahu in Libra here might say they want world peace without having any plan to get it, but at some point they might just make the claim that they have achieved it. In any case, they will have the power to fascinate people with their hopes and dreams. 

The network is found in the 11th house. This gives Rahu a lot of strength here as his obsessive ways and technological acumen work very well with the massive source of network associates. These days in network interconnectivity it’s a very powerful place for Rahu. People will be fascinated by ones network of friends. They will be an unusual sort who feel entitled to challenge boundaries. They can be very good community organisers. 

Problems to the lower leg or irregularities in the nervous system or connective tissue can cause hurdles in a person’s life.   

Rahu in the 12th house

As the house of loss Rahu is fairly happy here since everything he eats passes thru without satisfaction. This becomes the plight of this natives expenditure: lots of wastage and little satisfaction. At best, money will be spent on strange unusual things but still they will not get to enjoy them. It will be much the same as purchasing smoke, which is actually indicated by this Rahu: expenses on things that go up in smoke. Rahu’s sign and sign lord will, of course, have a lot of say in these matters.

The 12th house is also the final moksha house and it’s the most well known house for liberation so these people may be fascinated by the freedom of liberation and are unlikely to be encumbered by stuff. They can just give things away and lose everything. They cannot get enough loss and they experience a lot of this; they will break the boundaries of proper expenditure. Much of it will go to outcasts or be spent on improper things. One of the nice things about Rahu in the 12th house is that those shadowy expenses mostly remain private; that whole Rahuvian shadow side remains hidden, not out of guilt that comes from the 8th house hidden, but because the things of the 12th house are essentially lost in the universal ocean. 

We also see a person’s inner quest for spirituality in the 12th house (the 9th house has more to do with our external expressions of spirituality). With Rahu here they are fascinated and hungry for the inner spiritual experience. As the 4th from the 9th it is the foundation for the external expressions of spirituality. They will build an unusual foundation for their beliefs, or perhaps merely a foreign foundation that can be unclear. 

But dreams, fantasies and imagination are also a part of the 12th house and these things don’t have to follow any protocol; the 12th house is already unreal so Rahu works pretty good here. This Rahu can be good for the imagination, dreaming big, really big, and having unusual or even taboo fantasies. It’s likely that others will not see these 12th house things in a person clearly so there may be some fascination generated in the public about their foreign travels or getaways. These kinds of things will certainly be unique.   

The most obvious thing about Rahu in the 12th house is travel: foreign travel or just getting away from it all. They can experience much solitude or isolation in life. And it’s likely they will seek advantage from qualities relation to foreignness, dreams, meditation. But further fascination could be there for hospitals, retreats, prisons, asylums, and the rest of these places (or people relating to the places) represented in the 12th house.

The deformity on the body is most likely to occur on the foot. 

Occupation thru the 10th house

IMG_0489

This page has information on the 10th lord in the houses, the planets in the 10th house, the Navamsha of the 10th lord & miscellaneous rules relating to the 10th house. 

The 10th house is the main house of career, public reputation and social leadership. The 6th house describes the kinds of duties we have to perform day to day. Traditionally, the 2nd house would show our family lineage which would have a strong influence on our main occupation at well. These are the karma houses, they answer the question: “What will I do?” I will go into more detail about these below, but before I do that I will just briefly go over some of the ways that the other houses affect your career since there are so many things to take into account for this important topic.

What we do is greatly influenced by what we believe. Some suggest that karma is the wealth of our dharma. What we do shows the value of what we believe (9th house). This tells us the importance of the Dharma houses (1st, 5th & 9th houses) in determining career. 1st house shows the foundation of our career – reputation. 5th house show’s the sudden and unexpected events in our career that happen by circumstance (right time, right place). We seek sanctuary from our careers in the 9th house; however the beliefs and higher knowledge of the 9th house forms the foundation of the 6th house service we perform.

Most people who are concerned about career are also concerned about gathering some fruit from that career, so, we have to consider the kama trine (3rd, 7th & 11th houses). This is what motivates us. In the third house we are willing to leave our comfort zone and make an effort to appease our inner narrative. Although the 3rd house does not ring with the light and the truth of the 9th house, this inner narrative and the stories we tell ourselves are of great importance in our lives regardless of their truth or falsity. The 3rd house also shows the obstacles we will face in our career. The 7th house shows the way we honour our agreements and our negotiating style and is especially important for business people, counselors or others whose careers involved contracting their time or negotiations. The 7th house also shows our reputation with our career. The 11th house shows the value of all that 10th house activity as well as our connections in the marketplace.

Within the moksha trine (4th, 8th & 12th houses) the 4th house showing foundation education is the natural partner to your career. This shows the basic education necessary to maintain your position in society. The 8th house show gain from that career and position in society including bonuses, perks, health benefit plans and the like. Of course it’s also famous for hidden and unearned wealth. The 12th house shows how our a career allows us to reach out to the world. This shows the mentality of our boss or the company we work with.
