Rahu will soon enter Ashwini

As discussed in last weeks posts Saturn is dominating the current sky by its direct and indirect rulership of the signs in which the majority of the other planets are placed. It is also aspecting Rahu in Aries. This is significant because Rahu is about the enter the 1st Lunar house of the zodiac, which is called Ashwini. There are two in a half Lunar houses in each sign and they represent the distance the Moon moves in a twenty-four-hour period.

Ashwini is ruled by Ketu, the Lunar node that is always 180 degrees from Rahu. Ashwini is named after the Ashwini Kumaras, who are horse headed twins. They are known for their intelligence, speed, power, and especially their great healing ability as they are the physicians of the gods.

Rahu will enter this lunar house in about two weeks and remain for nine months. This combined with the aspect of Saturn on Rahu along will the fact that Saturn has and indirect rulership over the sign in which Mars, the ruler of Aries, is currently placed indicates some contradictory things. It could mean a sudden unexpected death or death from a long illness or it could mean a near miraculous healing from the same. It depends on the house Aries occupies in your natal chart and the natal placements of other planets, especially if they are in Ashwini. Aside from health issues it is definitely a time to expect the unexpected.
