Punarvasu - It is a nakshatra of rehabilitation and recovery process. It is very closely connected with after-care medical activities. It can also be a nakshatra of counselling. For more information on Punarvasu Nakshatra, please check this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/punnaksh.
Gemini - As Punarvasu is part of Gemini, Gemini sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Gemini. Gemini is the 3rd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 3rd house of horoscope like, Communication Skills (either written, oral or even by sign language), Marketing, Business etc. It is a sign basically related with communications and business ideas. Gemini is divided into 2 and half nakshatra of Mrigashira, Ardra and Punarvasu. Gemini's lord is Mercury, which is significator of Communications.
Cancer - As Punarvasu is also a part of Cancer, Cancer sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Cancer. Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's Care, Emotions, Taking Care of Others and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon, which again represents almost same things which Cancer and 4th house represents.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Gemini, Mercury’s position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Gemini.
Moon - As Moon rules Cancer, Moon's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Cancer.
Jupiter - As Punarvasu is ruled by Jupiter, Jupiter's position and dignity will also have an important role in functioning and results of any planet in Punarvasu.
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 Punarvasu Nakshatra – Rahu is in Jupiter’s nakshatra here. In Gemini section, it is in sign of Mercury but in Cancer section it in enemy’s sign of Moon. Now, Punarvasu comes after chaos and instability of Ardra. Hence, Punarvasu represents any kind of rehabilitation work which helps Universe to strike back the balance of normalcy after chaos. Rahu represents unusual or unique ways. So, these people can be seen as those who are providing services to others after any catastrophic event but through their alternate or unique ways of healing. They can be working as healers in alternate medicine. Through their unusual or unique ways they are helping people to recover from the chaos and major changes of their lives. They can be easily seen as counsellors, healers or someone working in disaster control teams or rehabilitation groups. In Gemini section of Punarvasu, they can be counsellors or teachers whereas in Cancer section of Punarvasu, they can be working directly as care-givers or healer, as that’s what the nature of Cancer is. But everywhere, they are helping people through alternate, unusual or unique ways.
In matters of relationship, this nakshatra can show a kind of difficult karma because it is about re-doing something. So, Rahu in Punarvasu can show those people who get into relation then break-up and then get back together again and this goes on and on and on ..... So, it shows that they have some strong karma towards each other and unable to let-go of each other. Rahu in Punarvasu can further show possibility of cheating, illusion or fraud in relationship. It will be a difficult relationship.
Role of Mercury – Mercury's position will become important in functioning and results of Rahu in Punarvasu/Gemini as Mercury rules Gemini.
Role of Moon – Moon's position will become important in functioning and results of Rahu in Punarvasu/Cancer as Moon rules Cancer.
Role of Jupiter – Likewise, Jupiter’s position will become important in functioning and results of Rahu in Punarvasu as Jupiter rules Punarvasu.
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 Punarvasu. 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 Punarvasu can work in a chart.
