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.
Pushya - Pushya is nakshatra of nourishing and taking care of people without any selfish interests. It is closely connected with adoption and child care due to mythological story involved. For more information on Pushya Nakshatra, please check this link - https://www.astrosaxena.com/pushnaksh .
Cancer - As Pushya is a part of Cancer, Cancer sign and its representations become important. 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.
Moon - As Moon rules Cancer, Moon's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Pushya/Cancer.
Saturn - As Pushya is ruled by Saturn, Saturn's position and dignity will also have an important role in functioning and results of any planet in Pushya.
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 Pushya Nakshatra – Rahu is in enemy sign and in Saturn’s nakshatra. As Pushya and Cancer all about taking care & nourishing others, this position can easily make someone interested in teaching, counselling and healing professions. Now, Rahu represents alternate/unique ways. So, any work where they can serve others and take care/nourish others through alternate, unusual or unique ways will suit this planetary position. They can also be working in child care and orphanages. They themselves can be interested in foster care or adoption. At the same time, they can be highly emotional people up to the level of emotional fools. They would be in extreme of emotions. Their biggest challenge would be to strike the balance in emotions or it can lead to some mental disorders too. Meditation is the way. As Rahu is in Saturn's nakshatra, they may have lots of frustrations in life.
An important part of Pushya story is adoption of Mercury by Jupiter. Hence, there is a big possibility that when person has Rahu in Pushya Nakshatra then he can be interested in adoption or surrogacy as a way of having a child. As infidelity is also part of same story, they can have trust issues in relationship matters. They can feel emotional frustration in relation. Again, relationships are naturally challenging.
Role of Moon – Moon's placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Cancer's lord.
Role of Saturn - Saturn's placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Pushya'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 Pushya. 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 Pushya can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
