CHANDRA RAHU Yuti (Moon Rahu Conjunction)
Examples (will add lot many here): Deepika Padukone (Tula rashi) Yuvraj has Chandra-Rahu yuti in Mithun rashi. Aishwarya Rai & Sachin Tendulkar have Chandra Rahu in Dhanu rashi; Salman Khan has Rahu in the 1st house in Vrushabh rashi. Ponting has Rahu-Mangal yuti in Vrushchik rashi! Pete Sampras has Rahu Mangal in uchcha Makar rashi.
I am THE authority on this topic as I have Chandra Rahu yuti in the 1st house that too Chandra approaching Rahu and only 1 degree away from Rahu!J Believe me it is may be J for me but L is for my parents and friends in childhood! JJ My mother could kill you with examples of my childhood rage, aggression, sportsman spirit (lack of), “unfriendly attitude”, getting lost for hours doing 1 thing (Grahan kaal effect on mind), climbing up a building or jumping from top of the building in construction sand with little provocation etc etc! J
Chandra Rahu yuti is considered the most malefic in astrology (even more so than an “unhealthy” Mangal-Shani yuti). This Chandra Rahu yuti is considered by most of the Sanskrit granth as a curse (shrap) from past life. This article deals with effects of this yuti.
Rahu or Ketu in the 1st house of the horoscope have a similar effect of respectively Chandra Rahu or Chandra Ketu sans the effect on their mind/Mother or water in the body.
Physical Effect: This yuti or Rahu/Ketu in the 1st house of a person results in an abrupt chin – i.e. narrower/smaller chin compared to forehead.
There are some reasons a Horoscope MUST be checked early in life when you see some extreme traits, behavior in a kid. Chandra Rahu yuti or Chandra Ketu yuti folks are one such breed. These folks need special attention and care for them to keep on track. Not understanding the root-cause can lead to very troublesome early life for them as well as their parents. Let’s see Chandra Rahu yuti in this article which is more on the side of aggression/agitation, outward expression. Chandra Ketu will address in a separate one which is more on pessimism, inward looking.
The Chandra Rahu yuti shows TREMENDOUS desire or a passion of the past life which was incomplete in the past birth. The house shows which area the passion is for: 1st: Image, popularity; 2nd house finance, 3rd: Travel, Expression; 4th: Farming, Mom; 5th; Kids, Education, Inspirational things; 6th: Service sector, Mom’s relatives; 7th Partnerships/Marriage; 8th: Gupta-dhan, Yoga, Occult, Wealth Inheritance, 9th: Dharma, Travel Religious; 10th: workplace, power; 11th Income, friends; 12th Moksha, Expenditure, immigration.
The Moon with Rahu has a great psychological effect. This makes a person especially in childhood to have a great anger, a dreamer, very less differentiation between the real life and the dream world, unexplained aggression, fear of unknown, high temper, lack of sportsman spirit. There is a great agitation from time to time which is totally uncontrollable. They get very scary dreams. Their mind keeps creating images of everything they see in life. These images are their own interpretations based on their interpretations! If they are manglik, it adds to the aggression/agitation and makes them also take some actions. They always have some “bhut” (ghost) on their head: it could be some interest in something like sports, politics, study some subject etc and they will pursue it with GREAT PASSION, Force and Energy and CONVICTION. The ghost thing is not only used as a metaphor: These folks often seen with some “badha” from outside and are always recommended wearing Hanuman locket. Chandra Rahu is often considered as targeted by asantushta aatma (a troubled soul) whereas Chandra-Neptune is seen as a channel for a great soul!
There is a great fear of unknown (dark, unknown places etc) but at the same time there is a HERO that is always lurking in them. Fight or Flight question always results in FIGHT for them.
Chandra Rahu yuti is a limitless energy and power. The owner of the Chandra-Rahu rashi decides the complete channel of this energy. The owner in 8th house and the person will pursue Gudh-shaste like astrology, yoga etc. In 5th house it will be sports (in Mangal or Guru rashi) or inspirational / creative art in Shukra’s rasshi.
Chandra-Rahu is limitless energy that BEGS for proper focus and channel. This yuti allows person to recognize patterns and sport them in each and every occurrence in life later on. Occult is VERY easy for these folks. They are made for occult or gudh-things. They are just natural at them.
These folks often have a very different image in different circles. Different circles have completely different approach towards them which they are acutely aware of. They are at ease dealing with these very different groups of people at different occasions. The fun? Starts when these groups start to collide / mix.
Invariably, this Yuti shows a VERY troubled & a hectic life for the mother. The sign shows the body part which would cause issues to Mom’s health. (Dhanu: legs, Sinvha: Spine/heart, Kirk: Lungs / breasts, Makar: Knee; Vrushabh: Neck, throat and so on).
1. The Hanuman Sadhana helps this energy spent on constructive things. The Hanuman Sadhana is THE biggest thing for Chandra Rahu and Chandra Ketu folks especially kids. Sanskrit Ram-Raksha and Hanuman stotra and Hanuman Mukh Darshan for daily 3 minutes on a well formed Hanuman poster makes wonders for these folks.
2. In their childhood, they should always be told stories of GREAT folks like Hanuman, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Veer Savarkar, Lokmanya Tilak, Samarth Ramdas Swami, Swami Vivekanand until the start identifying their own role models. This makes sure their energy goes in right direction.
3. Peace, calmness quietness etc is NOT for them. Do not try to keep petrol cool – rather, use it in a constructive way so that it creates warmth, energy and creates some positive work!
4. Even in adult life these folks should read great stories and always identify ROLE MODELS and follow them like there is no tomorrow! (I have always looked upon folks like V. D. Bhat, Balasaheb, Dilip Kumar, Bachchan, Imran Khan as role models in their spheres).
The effects mentioned above are seen more when the Moon is closer to Rahu say in 5 to 7 degrees. The Moon going towards Rahu is more of an issue than leaving it (i.e. Moon 26 degrees and Rahu 27 degrees than say Moon 28 and Rahu 24.) i.e. Moon that is going in Rahu’s mouth (eclipse) than say Moon that is out of Rahu’s mouth (eclipse).
But even when the Moon and Rahu are apart by 15 degrees the effects although not as dramatic and aggressive they still exist. Even if Moon in 1st degree and Rahu in 30th degree of a sign shows very less issues --- It WILL shows all of the following issues albeit with reduced intensity.
Trivia: Most of the biggest Caroms and TT players either have Chandra Rahu, Chandra Ketu or Mangal Rahu, Mangal Ketu yuti.
1. The moon goes thru all 12 signs aprx 28 days. (26 hrs 52 minutes per Nakshatra – 27 nakshatras)
2. Moon is never wakri etc J
3. Rahu and Ketu are the mean of the intersection points of the Earth’s orbit (around the Sun) and the Moon’s orbit (around the Earth)
4. Rahu and Ketu are 180 degrees apart and always in opposite houses in the horoscope
5. Rahu and Ketu are always wakri due to the progression of Moon’s and Earth’s orbit.
6. Rahu and Ketu travel for 18 months in a sign.
7. That means Chandra goes to and past Rahu and Ketu once in every 28 days.
The Moon in the horoscope represents or is Governor of mind (not intellect), emotions, water in the body, and your mother apart from several other things. The position of Chandra in your horoscope shows which area of life you are most interested in. 1st house Chandra shows self/image/appearance-conscious person. In the 2nd house – family, wealth, jewelry, investments etc. 10th house work place, career, father. 4th house Mother, Sukh-sthan, farming, home etc.
Rahu represents materialism, hedonism, aggression, insatiable desires and also Paternal Family (Grand-parents). Rahu and Ketu could be closely related to DNA stuff and planets around them show which area of health/body etc would carry either strengths or weaknesses of either paternal or maternal family.
