What the event means for your Lagna

Astrologers the world  over look on the ingress of shadow planets Rahu and Ketu into the Zodiacal signs of Leo  and Aquarius respectively at  00.53 hours on January 30 this year as a celestial event of much significance.

Although Rahu and Ketu are not luminaries like Mars, Venus, Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter, ancient Rishis in India looked on them as powerful extra-terrestrial entities capable of exercising a strong influence on man, earth and its environment.

Now let us examine how the movement of Rahu and Ketu into Leo and Aquarius respectively is going to influence the natives of the 12 Lagnas.

Aries (MeshaMesha)
For the Aries native, Leo falls in his 5th and Aquarius in his 11th House.  Leo is considered a hostile sign for Rahu and the 5th too is not a House where he is strong. Therefore, the native is likely to develop tendency to be tyrannical and hard-hearted.  Ketu is quite comfortable in the 11th House. Jupiter’s beneficial aspect over the 11th House and Ketu will influence the latter to produce good results.  Therefore, the Aries native can look forward to an increase in wealth when Ketu enters the 11th House on January 30.
