What Is Rahu Mahadasha And Its Effects

Rahu creates confusion in everyone's life. The effect of Rahu varies from person to person. It may have positive benefits for some, and negative effects for some. There is a legend associated with Rahu. When the ocean was churned between the Devas and the Asuras and nectar came out of it, Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini and started distributing the nectar to the deities. But a demon Swarbhanu sat in the line of the deities.

By the time the gods came to know about this, Swarbhanu had become immortal by drinking nectar. Vishnu got angry and cut off the head of Swarbhanu with Sudarshan Chakra.

Swarbhanu was immortal so could not die but his head was separated from his body. From that time on his head came to be known as Rahu, and his body as Ketu. After this incident, Rahu and Ketu started affecting the lives of humans on Earth.

The Mahadasha of Rahu can affect the lives of people in many different ways. The effects can be dangerous as well as beneficial. The effect of Rahu can be auspicious or inauspicious depending on the movement of the planets. When a person goes through this condition, they are very likely to be confused, agitated, and in some cases, may even become violent. The Mahadasha of Rahu lasts for a period of 18 years in life. If the effect of Rahu is very negative on one's life then with the help of mantras the effect of this Mahadasha can be reduced a little.

Rahu Mahadasha is most closely associated with the birth chart, making him either very rich or very poor. If one is in the positive aspect of Rahu, then happiness and success will be at the feet of his person. If a person does not experience success in life, he/she is negatively affected by this Mahadasha.
