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.
Bharani – Bharani is nakshatra of death and re-birth, occult/hidden side of life and instabilities. This nakshatra is also connected with sexuality and attraction. As it is ruled by Venus, the significance of wealth, finance and creativity naturally comes to this nakshatra.

Aries – As Bharani is part of Aries, Aries sign and its representations become important here. Aries is the 1st sign of zodiac belt, so it represents the things and energy of 1st house of horoscope like Self, Personality etc. Besides that, Aries is the sign of our individuality, our aggression, our actions, our competitive ability etc. Aries is ruled by Mars and it is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras named Ashwini, Bharani and Krittika.
Mars – As Mars rules Aries, Mars’ position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Aries.
Venus – Likewise as Venus rules Bharani, Venus's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Bharani.
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 Bharani Nakshatra – Bharani is nakshatra of instabilities, occult, dark side of life, death and re-birth and Sex. Rahu in Bharani Nakshatra can make a person go through lots of instability and ups/downs in life. They can be obsessive about occult side of life or any kind of research oriented activities. They can be equally interested in understanding death and re-birth scenarios and theory of re-incarnation. It can make them very sexual or they can be interested in knowing about sex. The best profession for them is anything to do with research and uncovering hidden matters. Occultists or Surgeons can be best professions for them. They can also be Sex-counsellors or experts. As Rahu is in Venus ruled Nakshatra, they can be in creative side of work too.
In relationship matters, it can create someone who has huge sexual appetite and may not feel sexually satisfied in their relation. As always, it leads to multiple relations and multiple partners. So, this position can be a troublesome one for relationship matters.
Role of Mars – Mars's placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Aries's lord.
Role of Venus – Venus’ placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Bharani’s lord.
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 Bharani. 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 Bharani can work in a chart.
