Only he can turn your Rāhu into a good guy....

Varāha : the avatara that rescued the earth from the cosmic ocean can solve the karmic problems that eCLect your life. 

Vedic Astrology does not simply tell you, "Here is your Karma, you have to keep it - period." The beauty of Vedic Astrology is the powerful remedies with which you can change the orbit of your destiny.

Rāhu: the problem of problems

If you have begun to familiarize yourself with Vedic Astrology, reading the title below you immediately nodded...

"Yes, Rāhu is my problem!"

And not just yours-it's everybody's problem.

Rāhu is not a real planet; it is a mathematical point.

Rāhu is the head that has been separated from his body, Ketu.

This head is full of desires and longings. 

And this "subtle planet" that causes our addictions e our attachments.

It is precisely these addictions and attachments that cause our greatest suffering and block our freedoms.

Imagine that life gives you something very important to you. 

Then after a certain time, without any notice, it is taken away from you.

It will be a shock, a trauma, a betrayal....

...And you will suffer in proportion to how much attachment you have developed toward that object.

This is the nature of Rāhu.

Rāhu pushes us toward the material, toward selfishness, leads us to self-centeredness.

Only because of Rāhu do we develop attachment to the transient things around us that we will have to leave behind in the process.

Rāhu is the cause of our rebirth--the problem of problems.

If you have made completely crazy and out-of-the-box choices in your life, in 98% of cases you have your "beloved" Rāhu to thank!

the two nodes of the moon

Rāhu and Ketu are the Moon Nodes.

Lunar Nodes are nothing more than the junction points between the Moon's orbit and the ecliptic (the path the Sun takes around the Earth). 

These are the mathematical points where the Sun, Moon and Earth align to create the eclipse

Eclipse of the Sun is when the Sun and Moon are conjoined with Rahu or Ketu; while eclipse of the Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon in opposition are arbitrarily one with Rahu and the other with Ketu.

From another point of view, we can say that Rāhu and Ketu are. two sides of the moon

Or rather, the two extremes

In Vedic Astrology the moon represents the mind (manas). 

Thus the two Nodes, Rāhu and Ketu, represent. The two extremes of the mind. 

Two extremes that are always within us and pushing us in their directions.

In one respect, Nodes represent the tendency of the mind to accept and reject, rāga-dveṣa. 

The mind goes toward acceptance of what gives us pleasure (Rāhu ) and rejection (Ketu) when that thing disappoints or shows its transitory side. 

Thus the mind oscillates between Rāhu and Ketu

Ketu gives us a chance to break free.

Rāhu enslaves us into attachments and addictions.

This duality is the source of our suffering (Bhagavad-gītā 7.27) and a person who transcends it finds full grace (Bhagavad-gītā 2.64).

every planet has its avatāra

The first thing to note is that Rāhu is in Exaltation in Gemini. 

This is a very strong position in which the "exalted" Planet behaves in full Sattva guna (that is, in the most positive and constructive way it can).

A Planet in Exaltation represents theViṣṇu's corresponding avatāra.

That is, it is like a direct Divine manifestation; it is its expansion acting for the good of every being.

Below you will find the relationship between the Planets and the avatāra.

Every Planet (Graha) that exalts itself gains the power to liberate the person.

This power is explained and revealed by the history of avatāra corresponding. 


Rāhu is precisely Varāha!

So I will tell you his story shortly.

the story of VARĀHA Deva

Varāha is the third avatāra of Viṣṇu.

In the purāṇa (timeless stories) this story is told.

One day, due to a most powerful being of a malevolent nature, the earth came out of its orbit and sank into the indistinct mud of theCosmic Ocean.

At that point the inhabitants of the universe went to Brahma, the demiurge of the universe, for help.

Brahma sat in meditation and something came out of his nostrils....

At first it was just a small dot that began to expand into a giant figure.

From the incredibly shiny and attractive appearance Varāha manifested.

Varāha had a form of divine boar. 

The wild boar is an expert at finding roots and buried objects.

After Brahma and the other heavenly beings offered their prayers to Viṣṇu who had taken the form of a boar, Varāha began to smell the surface of the Cosmic Ocean.

After a careful search, Varāha began digging in one spot until he found the buried Earth.

With his fangs he grabbed the Earth and returned it to its original position. 


Astrological and metaphorical significance of the story of VARĀHA

Rāhu, like Saturn, holds the element Air

Thus Varāha came out in the form of breath (Air) from Brahma's nostrils.

Earth is Mercury.

The Ocean is the Moon.

La Terra fuori posto rappresenta Mercurio in Acquario, nel Segno di Rāhu. 

Similarly, our consciousness is covered by the ego caused by addictions and desires.

Ma Varāha (Rāhu in Esaltazione) riporta Mercurio in Gemelli, nella sua Casa, nel suo Domicilio.


Varāha (Rāhu) mette il suo naso nell’Oceano (Rāhu è un Nodo della Luna, che rappresenta l’oceano).

Great, isn't it?

the mantra of VARĀHA Deva

Così possiamo veramente pregare affinché questo avatāra possa “tirarci fuori” dalle difficoltà di Rāhu.

Varāha può tirarci fuori dall’ignoranza, dalle dipendenze e dagli attaccamenti nocivi che Rāhu produce.

By the way there is a beautiful mantra that can be recited to obtain Varāha's blessings and counterbalance our Rāhu:

vasati daśana-śikhare dharaṇī tava lagnā

śaśini kalańka-kaleva nimagnā

keśava dhṛta-śūkara-rūpa jaya jagadīśa hare

O Kesava! O lord of the universe! Hari! You have assumed the form of a divine boar! Glories to thee! The Earth that was submerged in the Universal Ocean at the bottom of the universe is now fixed on your fangs like a spot on the Moon.” 

Questo mantra contiene tutti e 3 gli elementi che abbiamo individuato nello Zodiaco.

See you soon,
