What is Rahu ?
In Hindu Astrology Rahu represents materialism, mischief, fear, insatisfaction, obsession and confusion.
Rahu is found in the Puranic genre of mythology. The tale begins in the “remotest periods of prehistoric time, when the gods and asuras churned the Milk Ocean to extract from it the Amrita, the elixir of immortality.”
Rāhu was present at that time and overcome with pride. Mohini, the female avatar of Vishnu, started distributing Amrit to the Devtaas. However, one Danav, Svarbhanu, sat in the row of devtaas and drank the Amrit.
The Sun God and the Moon God noticed him and they informed Mohini; however, by that time Svarbhanu, had already became immortal. Vishnu as Mohini cut off Svarbhanu’s head with Sudarshan Chakra.
Rahuketu could not die but his head was separated from his body and his head came to be known as Rahu, while his body came to be known as Ketu.
Following this event, Rahu and Ketu were given the responsibility to influence the lives of the humans on Earth
