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.
Jyeshtha Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of feeling better or higher than others. It represents orderly and justifiable people. It is the most closely connected nakshatra with occult and mystic. For more info on Jyeshtha Nakshatra - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jyeshtnaksh .
Scorpio - As Jyeshtha 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.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Jyeshtha, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Jyeshtha.
Mars-Ketu - As Mars-Ketu rules Scorpio, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Jyeshtha/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 Jyeshtha Nakshatra – Rahu is in Mars’ sign here and in Mercury nakshatra. Rahu is obsession & blows things out of proportion and Jyeshtha is all about occult side of life as it is represented by round talisman. So, these people can have obsession towards occult and mystical side of life. They can be in any research oriented work. At the same time, Jyeshtha is nakshatra of authority and recognition. So, they can be all about gaining authority in life and love to manage people and work with them. They can be high on ego too. They can be good at rationalizing and they can also be justifiable. Regardless of age, they can behave in a very mature way in life as Jyeshtha means the eldest one. But biggest significance of this position remains occult and mysticism. They can be perfect mystics. They can also go through lots of major changes in life. As jealousy is also an important part of Jyeshtha Nakshatra’s mythological story, they can be jealous about authority, wealth or relationship life of others.
But in relationship matters, same Jyeshtha can take up trait of ego and they can be high on ego. Rahu in Jyeshtha people can get into ego clashes in relationship. Scorpio’s energy of instability is anyways not good for relationship. As Gandanta degrees also fall in this nakshatra, Rahu in Gandanta degrees can bring further instabilities and clinging nature in relation.
Role of Mercury – Mercury placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Jyeshtha lord.
Role of Mars-Ketu - Mars-Ketu placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Scorpio 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 Jyeshtha. 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 Jyeshtha can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
