The effects of Rahu
in Indian astrology have always of much concern. The placement of Rahu in a zodiac considerably diminishes or changes the powers of that Rashi in the natal chart. To counteract it, one should pay extra attention to the qualities of that particular sign.
Effects of Rahu on Zodiac Signs
Rahu establishes a friendly approach and leaves behind its aggressiveness and drive. Negatively, the person may be non-individual, always leaning on the opinion of others. If positively changed, the person can be an achiever when in the right fields of leadership. Rahu in Taurus
can diminish the natural benefits, and therefore one might lose out on patience and stability, which happens to be the greatest assets of this sign. In Gemini
Rahu does not necessarily lessen the quick thinking and intellect, but can greatly affect communication skills.
Rahu in Cancer
forces the person to get serious early in life, probably due to certain mishaps of childhood. Rahu in Leo
forces the person to hide his/her feelings of being openly creative or being the centre of applause. In Virgo
Rahu fuels imagination and love for finer things and beauty. But it can diminish the sense of practical viewpoint which is so necessary. Rahu in Libra
forces the people to be more pushy and aggressive. This influence also affects their relationships with people, let alone romance. Rahu in Scorpio
produces people with simplistic approach in life with high sense of contention from whatever they have. Rahu in Sagittarius
produces intelligent and clever thinking, though long term visions and ideals may just be lacking. Sexual ecstasy and deep insights is alien to them. The alliance of Rahu with Capricorn
makes one a sentimental, family oriented person. Rahu and Aquarius
combination brings out the natural good side of the zodiac to be person of masses. The drawback being, the person usually attaches his or her egos with the same, and starts treating others as slaves than actual friends. Working hard and living practically is all-consummate for life of people with the amalgamation of Rahu and Pisces

It is thus required to make a strenuous effect to make the life stable. Loe people should not hide their feelings and ruin their share of joy. They should come out and bask in creativity with fearless pride. A down to earth attitude will make the persons of Virgo brilliant achievers as this combination favours success. Diplomacy and charm should be practiced by the Libran to acquire more fulfilling life. Beauty and arts should be the integral part of life to increase the happiness.
A Scorpion should broaden his or her horizons and introspect. The Saggi people should make use of education and experience to lay a solid and ambitious foundation for his success in life. Capricorn should acquire practical viewpoint to achieve success irrespective of odds. Persons belonging to Aquarius zodiac have to let go the ego problem to be truly generous and friendly and reap the rewards Rahu brings.
