Swati - Swati is nakshatra of independence, Justice, Fair-Play and Business People. For more information on Swati Nakshatra, please check this link - https://www.astrosaxena.com/swanaksh .
Libra - As Swati is a part of Libra, Libra sign and its representations also become important. Libra is the 7th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the energy and things related with 7th house of horoscope, i.e. Market Place, Business, Partnerships, Relations etc. Libra is sign of Balance, i.e. striking the Balance between 2 parties/ideologies or even at personal level between our own dilemmas. It is sign of Peace and Diplomacy. And this is what we are seriously looking for after the conflicts and disagreements of Virgo, i.e. Peace to prevail. At personal level, Libra is seen as sign of Relationships. Libra is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra named Chitra, Swati and Vishakha. Libra's lord is Venus only.
Rahu - As Rahu rules Swati, Rahu's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Swati.
Venus - As Venus rules Libra, Venus position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Swati.
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 Swati Nakshatra – Rahu is in Venus sign here and in own nakshatra. As Libra is sign of business and Swati represents independence, Rahu here can show someone working independently in business setup work environment. This business can be related with finance/wealth or creative matters due to lordship of Venus. They have to work as an independent business person else they would feel frustrated in their career. As Venus is also a teacher in mythology, it shows that it can be a knowledge sharing business too. So, they should make an aim of being in own business else they may not get success as per their potential. Best possibility of wealth gain is through business only. In job setup career, they can get average results. Even nature-wise, they will be highly independent and may not like anyone to be authoritative towards them.
In relationship matter, the same desire of being free or independent can hurt the relation unless the partner is also understanding of this fact that true love/relation always brings independence and freedom to the partners involved in it. If they don't get such partner then in prevailing social understanding that relationship is all about capturing and controlling others, this person can feel extremely frustrated and imprisoned in the relation. In that situation, it is better not to get into any relationship and enjoy your freedom.
Role of Rahu – As we are trying to interpret Rahu only, we need not to check Rahu’s placement separately.
Role of Venus - Likewise, Venus placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Libra 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 Swati. 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 Swati can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
