The planet Uranus or Rahu as per Hindu astrology or call it Dragon’s Tail is the Rebel of the Solar system.
As the legend goes several lacs years back- when GOD decided to give eternity to good souls (devas), GOD churned out nectar from ocean for eternity.
The nectar was to be given to all the good souls (devas), but a demon disguised as a good soul drank the nectar, when the nectar was almost in his throat GOD realized the mistake and cut the body into two parts- namely dragon’s head ( rahu) and other Dragon’s tail(Ketu) or Neptune. As the demon had already drunk the nectar so it became eternal as the other souls- called the dreaded rahu-kethu axis.
The much dreaded kala sarpa Yoga stems out from this rahu –ketu axis and is present when all the planets are on one side of the rahu ketu axis- this yoga means a continous failure in all activities and losses all over life.
The above legend is just used to explain the energies existing in the cosmos- Vedic cosmology is very intricate and accurate and they use examples and stories to explain complex subjects.
Rahu and ketu are formed astrologically by the points of intersection of the moon’s orbit with the elliptic plane( in which rest of the planets including our earth revolves).
Uranus or rahu is the rebel, it causes one to take opposite views, it controls the people involved in crime, underworld or mafia – but on the positive side it controls people in politics or hardworking and practical people.
Rahu people could be disciplined and cunning as far as politic is concerned- but at the same time very sensitive and one could see a streak of rebellious behaviour in them.
If anyone has a weak rahu, like rahu is Scorpio or a strong rahu, rahu in Taurus – one could easily observe the negative and positive effects of rahu. People born on 4th,13th,22nd or 31st of any month are affected by planet Rahu.
It might interest you that terrorist and terrorism has a close bearing with rahu. So when rahu is weak the chance of terrorists getting caught or killed is much higher. When Osama bin laden got killed, in May 2, 2011,, rahu was weak in Scorpio.
Rahu affected people generally take the opposite view of people or society- so they could either be rebel’s of society, like criminals or become politicians to reform the society or may be become inventors and scientists as they are not satisfied with the past.
They are generally highly strong, sensitive – may feel lonely or isolated and easily wounded. Rahu has number 4= 2+2, now 2= Moon = Moon + Moon. Or 4= 2×2 is again 2 moons. So sensitivity of moon is inculcated in them to a high degree
They want to change things in public or private life. People with strong rahu, might be indifferent to wealth or might example strange ways to use the wealth accumulated.
Aspects of Rahu:
Rahu aspects with maximum energy the houses, 5th, 9th and 7th from the place it is placed in your horoscope.
Rahu in Vedic astrology is not a real planet, though in western astrology represents Uranus, so not being real it absorbs energy from the house or sign it occupies. Rahu infact locks the energy of the house it is found in.
Like say if it is sitting on 9th house- so either the luck could be locked or one could become too disciplined( one of the qualities of rahu) for religion. 9th house = religion
