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.
Purva Phalguni - Purva Phalguni is nakshatra of Luxury, Wealth and Lavish Life. It is also nakshatra of creative pursuits and love/romance. For detailed information, please check this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/ppnaksh.
Leo - As Purva Phalguni is a part of Leo, Leo sign and its representations become important. Leo is 5th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things associated with 5th house of horoscope like Love, Creativity, Arts, Being on Stage etc. Besides that, Leo is basically the Lion. This is the sign of feeling like King or Queen. Also, it is a sign of independence, Confidence, Ego, Self Esteem etc. Leo is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra namely Magha, Purva-Phalguni and Uttara-Phalguni. Leo's lord is Sun..
Sun - As Sun rules Leo, Sun's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Phalguni/Leo.
Venus - As Purva Phalguni is ruled by Venus, Venus's position and dignity will also have an important role in functioning and results of any planet in Purva Phalguni.
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 Purva Phalguni Nakshatra – Creativity is written all-over this planetary position. Rahu is creativity, Leo is creativity and Purva-Phalguni is creativity. Rahu also blows things out of proportion. So, these people can be highly creative and can have lots of hobbies and interests like music, singing, drawing etc. They can pursue many interests simultaneously. There should be no doubt that they should be following their creative interests as career as they will get most happiness and success through their creative pursuits only. Another thing they can be good at is financial nature of work as Purva Phalguni represents finance and wealth. In this day and age, this position can make someone very good with creating softwares and apps as you need creative imagination to create these kind of things too. But it is best suited for any work related with movies, arts, media, singing, dancing etc. They may love to live a life which is full of pleasure and convenience. They may like spotlight to be on them always. Rahu in Purva-Phalguni can make a person over-indulgent in pleasure and wealth.
As always, difficulties may come through relationship. As Purva-Phalguni is nakshatra of love/romance, Rahu here can give extreme desires and expectations in love/romance matters and those high expectations can result in break-ups or separation. Not to forget that Rahu is in enemy sign of Leo, the sign of Kings/Queens. So, they may have an expectation to be treated like King or Queen by their partner and that may make relationship difficult. Ego clashes would be high plus desire to live a lavish life at all times may result in spoiling the relationship. This position can also lead to infidelity in relationship.
Role of Sun – Sun placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Leo's lord..
Role of Venus – Venus placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Purva Phalguni 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 Purva Phalguni. 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 Purva Phalguni can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
