Rahu is a notorious planet known to almost all laymen as a harbinger of lunar and solar eclipses. Rahu is a born malefic with no allotted house in the zodiac. It mirrors the qualities of the lord of the house that it occupies. Rahu's evil characteristics are heightened if he posited in a house owned by a malefic planet. He is at his worst when afflicted by Saturn, Mars, and Sun. Scorpio or Sagittarius's placement of Rahu can be devastating on the native's fortunes as Rahu is debilitated in these houses.
