During the Rahu & Ketu Transit in 2020 , both the shadow planets will be changing their zodiac signs. This phenomenon will shift the paradigm of all the 12 signs of the zodiac in a major way.
As the story goes, Rahu and Ketu are two separate parts of the same body, being split up by Lord Vishnu's grace. Astronomically, Rahu and Ketu denote the two intersection points of Sun and Moon, respectively known as the North Lunar Node and South Lunar Node.
Another myth that surrounds the fable of Rahu and Ketu is the one where eclipses are credited to the name of Rahu and Ketu as Sun and Moon “disappear” when they are posited at these lunar nodes.
Both the planets are just mathematical nodes, which infers that they are not visible to the naked eye upon inspection. Despite this fact, both Rahu & Ketu have great importance in Vedic Astrology, due to their extreme and volatile nature. The planets are known to bring either sudden success in one's life or an unexpected downfall.
Both Rahu & Ketu have always been associated with malefic effects on an individual's character and growth. But, they do have some good things to signify in the horoscope of a native.
Rahu denotes independence, creativity, and imagination along with confusion, and addictions. It also symbolizes spiritual growth and the quality to think actions through. When posited in the 3rd, 6th, or 11h house in a Kundali, the planet is super active casts a powerful shadow on the native's actions. A strong Rahu is beneficial for politicians as it presents with power and an obsession with this power. When Rahu favors someone's Horoscope, it promises immense wealth & riches, but at the same time, it can cloud the judgment of the person with unjust methods to succeed and using sly means to achieve petty goals.
On the other hand, Ketu symbolizes spirituality, inclination towards occult sciences, and compassion. Despite these positive traits, the negative traits that mist Ketu are violence, impetuous attitude, and amorality. A strong Ketu in someone’s horoscope could make the person highly demanding and mean. With such close ties to the spiritual world, Ketu imbues with a religious bent of the mind and psychic abilities.
Both these shadow planets, Rahu and Ketu stay in each house for about 1 year and 6 months, i.e. 18 months, during which they cause a spur of change in a native’s horoscope depending on the House Lord and their relationship with it.
