Raj Yoga Rahu and Ketu becoming yogakarka Rahu and Ketu can create the most powerful

yogakarka raj yoga if it is beneficially placed. Rahu and ketu works according to their depositor, sign in which it is placed, nakshatra lord, karka and navamsa strength. They both work as amplifier for the planets in conjunction or if not in conjunction than its depositor, it means when joins benefic planet, they increases its beneficial tendency to great extent. Whenever they are placed in quadrant or trine in co-junction with benefics they will amplify their good results upto great extent. Whenever they sit in quadrant or trine and their depositor is also beneficially placed in quadrant and trine than they create powerful raj yoga. If they are placed in quadrant in co-junction with trine lord or if placed in trine with quadrant lord it becomes yoga karka. In all above conditions there should not be 8th and 11th lord conjunction with them and also there should not be much malefic aspect on them. Example- In the horoscope of shahrukh khan there is exalted Rahu in Taurus in 10th house and its depositor venus is in 5th house with no malefic aspect on them creates highly powerful raj yoga for fame and wealth. How to judge effects of Rahu and Ketu in vedic astrology Rahu (North Node of Moon) has the nature of a serpent. It poisons you to the illusions of this world. It is our desires that keep us incarnating here. Ultimately the disillusionment leads to the enlightenment of Ketu (South Node of Moon), who detaches and renounces the world for spiritual enlightenment. The nodes are the most powerful of all the planets, for they cause the eclipses of the luminaries, the Sun and Moon. The nodes block out the light or consciousness. Co-owned sign and exalted debilitated sign for rahu and ketu are stated different in varied vedic scriptures. However I am giving here what is stated in Parashari Hora and in which I believe too. Rahu owns Aquarius (kumbh) and Ketu owns Scorpio (vrischika), rahu mooltrikona sign is Gemini (mithun) ketu mooltrikona sign is sagitarius (dhanu). Rahu gets exalted in taurus and debilitated in scropio, ketu gets exalted in scorpio and debilitated in taurus. Rahu and ketu gives best result in 3rd, 6th and 11th house.However ketu being mokshkarka also works good in 12th house making the native spiritual and leading a king like life. Rahu and Ketu gives result according to their depositor, sign, house in which it is placed, aspects and co-junctions. It is also said that Rahu and Ketu amplifies the result of planet they sit with. It means when co-joins benefic planet, they increases its beneficial tendency to great extent. Rahu is separative in nature and ketu being inclined towards attachments spiritually. Suppose rahu is sitting in 7th house or co-joins 7th lord makes separative yoga with wife (Note: according to the degree of co-juntions with 7th lord, more closer makes more separative yoga) but ketu does opposite to rahu in these positions. They tends opposite qualities, for example conjunction of rahu + moon makes the native

harsh, rude and not to belive on religion on the other hand conjunction of ketu + moon makes one spiritual and fickle minded.
