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).

rahu in the sky now

Where is Rāhu now?

Here is Rāhu is in Gemini from February 2019 and will stay there until October 2020.

And why are we only talking about it now?

Because now (and only now) can we receive blessings that we need to deal with this "intense" transit of Rahu in Gemini!


Because only from February 6, 2020 we can contact the blessings of Varāha deva

(I will explain shortly what this is all about).

Only since February 6 have we had the key to work on our Rāhu and thus transform its energies so that they elevate and liberate us. 

This you see above is the Astrological Chart for February 6, 2020.

We are in Dvadasi Tithi (the twelfth lunar day of the crescent moon) of the Vedic month of Magha

On this date we celebrate Varāha Dvadasi.

But, before I tell you the attached story, I want to point out. the Planets in play on this day.

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 5 elements and the planets

Rāhu is in Gemini, a sign ruled by Mercury, joint to the Moon

Mercury, Rāhu's dispositor, is in Aquarius-the Sign of which Rāhu is co-regent.

This creates a close relationship between Rāhu and Mercury called. Parivartana Yoga (exchange), in which the two planets are each "at each other's house." 

Parivartana is the strongest relationship that can be created between two Planets.  

So we have 3 Planets in very close relationship

➡ Rāhu 

➡ Mercury 

➡ Moon. 

I explained that Rāhu represents an avatāra because he is in Exaltation.... 

Now we need to understand what Mercury and the Moon represent.

In order to do that I have to introduce another concept to you....

That is, each Planet is linked to a element of nature.

See the table below:

Now here we go...

...We have all the pieces.

So, in our combination we have:

⭐ Rāhu as Varāha avatāra

⭐ Mercury representing the Earth

⭐ the moon representing theOcean

Here we have all the elements to understand the history being commemorated this February 6, 2020

In a little while you will understand why this is an incredible thing!

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

Amazing how on the commemoration day of this avatāra, the planets are arranged to tell his story in such detail.

Indeed 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.

The Earth is out of place because Mercury is in Aquarius, in the Sign of Rāhu. 

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

But Varāha (Rāhu in Exaltation) is in Parivartana (Sign exchange) with Mercury and brings him back to Gemini, in his House, in his Domicile.


Varāha (Rāhu) puts his nose in the Ocean (Rāhu conjuncts the Moon).

Great, isn't it?

the mantra of VARĀHA Deva

So on Feb. 6, 2020, this powerful energy of Varāha is activated and we can really pray that this avatāra can "pull us out" of the difficulties of Rāhu.

Varāha can pull us out of the ignorance, addictions and harmful attachments that Rāhu produces.

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.” 

This mantra contains all 3 elements we identified in the Astrological Chart.

See you soon,
