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.
Moola Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of research, digging deep and knowing the hidden truth of things and people in life. For more information on Moola Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/Moolnaksh .
Sagittarius - As Moola is part of Sagittarius sign, Sagittarius and things represented by Sagittarius are important here. Sagittarius is the 9th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents many things related with the 9th house of horoscope like Religion, Knowledge, Wisdom, Higher Learnings, Gurus, Teachings from your Father etc. Besides it also represents Coaching, Universities, Professors and Preachers, Higher Wisdom, Written Law of the Land etc. Sagittarius has 2 and half nakshatra which are Mula, Purva-Ashadha and Uttara-Ashadha. Sagittarius' lord is Jupiter.
Ketu - As Ketu rules Moola, Ketu's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Moola.
Jupiter - As Jupiter rules Sagittarius, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Moola/Sagittarius.
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 Moola Nakshatra – Here, Rahu is in Jupiter’s sign and in Ketu's nakshatra. Normally Moola is connected with occult, mystical or spiritual side of life, so one generic interpretation of Rahu in Moola can be someone who is obsessed with occult, mystical or spiritual side of life. Moola is represented by roots and it represents any kind of research work. So, Rahu in Moola can show a person who is obsessed to gain more and more information through research oriented activities and then he would like to share that information or knowledge with others. Now, it can be any type of research, i.e. medical, technical, and financial or as we discussed, the occult/spiritual side of it. They can be a perfect mystic and occultist. They can be interested in knowing the deepest secrets of life.
At the same time, Moola has representation of uprooting something and planting it back again. This looks like a normal process but think of a plant which is uprooted from a land and then again placed on another piece of land. This is a very transformative process for that plant. This means that in matters of relationship, this person can go through some major transformations in relationship life. It can also bring relationship partners in life who themselves are going through troublesome time in relationship matters or in overall life. They can attract partners in life with whom they have some big past-life karma. So, this placement can still bring troubles in personal life but for knowledge sharing career, it can be a very good placement.
Role of Ketu – Ketu placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Moola's lord.
Role of Jupiter – Jupiter’s placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Sagittarius 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 Moola. 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 Moola can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
