Rahu is exalted in Taurus and Ketu in Scorpio.
Rahu is the co-lord of Aquarius and Ketu is the co-lord of Scorpio. There is a second school of thought which stats that Rahu’s owns sign is Virgo and Ketu’s Pisces we can interpret this statement to mean that when Rahu is in Virgo and Ketu in Pisces the nodes will be taken to be well placed and should be disposed to give good results.
Gemini is the moon sign of Rahu and Sagittarius of Ketu.
(*) Rahu in Taurus Gemini Virgo and Aquarius shall be considered well placed similarly Ketu in Scorpio Sagittarius and Pisces should be considered a well-placed.
This also shows that Rahu is well placed in the sign of Mercury and Ketu is happy in the sign of Jupiter. Since Ketu is like Mars and Mars and Jupiter are natural friends to each other the relationship of Ketu with Jupiter is also understandable.
(*) Rahu in Scorpio and Pisces and Ketu in Taurus and Virgo should not be considered a well-placed. Rahu will give unfavorable results in the houses owned by Jupiter and Ketu will give adverse results in the houses owned by Mercury. Here the behavior of Ketu is similar to mars since mass to give advice results in the sign of Mercury but it cannot be so said for Rahu since Saturn and Rahu are similar but Saturn gives good results in the sign of Jupiter
(*) Rahu in the 3rd, 4th or 9th house with aspect of a naturally beneficial planet removes all indications of adversity in the birth chart.
Rahu placed in Aries Taurus or cancer in the ascendant in a birth chart has similar effect. Ketu in the 6th or 9th house in Capricorn Aquarius and Pisces shall be beneficial.
(*) Rahu in 3rd, 5th, 9th in angular or a triangular house will give positive general signification results. The results will be negative if it is placed in 8th or 12th house without association with the aspect of a naturally beneficial planet. Placement of Rahu in 8th and 9th house from ascendant is not always found to give it was results but it is a pointer to a possibility and should always alert the astrologer to go deeper and satisfy himself with respect to the results that Rahu may give.
(*) Any node will give results of the house that it occupies. Node will also give results of a planet with which it is associated. It is observed that node results of
i) The house that it occupies,
ii) The owner of the house that it occupies and,
iii) The planet that is associated with, or is in conjunction with.
(*) Dispositor is the owner of sign that a planet or node occupies. The quantum of result in the period of a node will depend on the strength of the dispositor of the node. It will also depend on the strength of the planet with which the nodes, if at all, in conjunction.
(*) The period of a planet that holds a sign from which Rahu/Ketu is placed in the 9th House will take the individual on a pilgrimage.
(*) The nature of a node will depend on the nature of the house that it occupies. Unowned occupying the 8th or 12th house is a normal circumstance unable to give good results the nature will also depend on the nature of the depositor and the conjunction that the node may have with the planet.
(*) A Node in second or seventh house is generally considered dangerous but when associated with or receiving aspect from the owner of first V or 9th house for give long life and wealth.
(*) Rahu is a marker planet for an individual born in Scorpio for Capricorn ascendant.
(*) The location of a node in its sign of debilitation or in earth or 12th house will make it give negative general signification results.
(*) At the time of analyzing the period of a node the analysis of its depositor should also be done.
(*) Ketu in angular or triangular house will give positive general signification results the results will be negative if it is placed in 12th house without association with or aspect of a naturally beneficial planet. 22 is placed in second or the twelfth house it may cause problems to the families of individual or may make the individual lose his Liberty in its major period. And in the case of Rahu the location of Ketu in 2nd a or 12th house may not always give adverse results but a deeper analysis of such for K2 is called for.
(*) The Nodes in their beneficial signs (exaltation, ownership, or Virgo for Rahu and Pisces for Ketu or Mooltrikon) positive general signification results in their major periods.
