Let’s look at important things here –
Rahu - It represents Illusion, Foreign Lands, Foreign Things (foreign as in unknown things. So, for someone living in Punjab, culture and rituals of Kerala is also unknown and hence Foreign), Drugs, Medicines, any type of intoxication, Fame, Wealth, Success, Obsession, Past-life incomplete Desires, Movies, Television, Online World, Cheating, Imagined Fears, Unusual Things, Unique Things, Creativity, Rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions.
Anuradha Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of following heart's desires or being devotional about something or someone. It is also related with mystical side of life. For more information on Anuradha Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/anunaksh .
Scorpio - As Anuradha is a part of Scorpio, Scorpio sign and its representations also become important. Scorpio is the 8th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things and energy related with 8th house of horoscope like Sudden Events, Secrecy, Dark World, Occult Science, Research, Inheritance, Serving Others, Taxes etc. Besides these things sign of Scorpio also represent transformation, means changing the whole nature upside down. This is one sign which is favorite of every Astrologer, because it has maximum secrets, so every astrologer gets maximum scope of researching. This is sign about which no one can tell with precision that what will happen to the planets in it, as it is sign of secrecy itself. Wherever Scorpio falls in your chart, you may have had biggest challenges in making things related with that house more stable. Scorpio is also one of those unique signs which has 2 rulers, i.e. Mars and Ketu. In Western Astrology, Pluto also co-rules Scorpio. All this makes Scorpio a chaotic sign. Scorpio consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatras, i.e. Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha.
Saturn - As Saturn rules Anuradha, Saturn's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Anuradha.
Mars-Ketu - As Mars-Ketu rules Scorpio, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Anuradha/Scorpio.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Rahu in Anuradha Nakshatra – Rahu is in Mars ruled sign here and in nakshatra ruled by Saturn. Anuradha is nakshatra of following your heart's desire plus it is nakshatra of being rebellious. Rahu blows things out of proportions. So, this position can make a person to follow their heart’s desire regardless of the fact that what is that desire? They can be very stubborn and adamant about it. Many a times, these desires can be of very rebellious nature which is another significance of this nakshatra. This is also nakshatra of devotion as it is connected with story of devotional love of Radha-Krishna. So, whatever they commit to in matters of their desire to pursue, they can be totally devoted towards it. Whatever they decide to do, they would stick to it. At the same time, Scorpio is sign where no planet is comfortable due to continuous instability. It shows that they can go through major changes in life as Rahu is known to blow things out of proportion. As all the nakshatras of Scorpio sign are naturally connected with occult side of life, they can also be obsessive about research/occult matters and they can serve people through it. They can be perfect mystics.
In relationship matters, as Anuradha is connected with Radha-Krishna, it is nakshatra of great devotion. It means that it can make them devoted towards their partner and relationship. They can almost treat their partner as their God. This can also bring a love story which is quite rebellious in nature like going against caste/religion/traditions of Society. Rahu in Scorpio can make a person obsessively sexual by nature. At the same time, relationship life will have its own instabilities and ups & downs.
Role of Saturn – Saturn placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Anuradha's lord.
Role of Mars-Ketu - Likewise, Mars-Ketu placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Scorpio's lords.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Rahu in Anuradha. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Rahu in Anuradha Nakshatra can work in a chart.
