We are entering a phase of important and long term transits of the planets and none other is more important then Nodes transits from Sep, 2020 onwards. So, let’s begin with understanding this Nodal Transits with Rahu’s transit in Taurus.
Normally, it is like a ritual to study Rahu & Ketu together in birth chart or during transit, but I just had a thought of making separate articles for Rahu and Ketu each, just to have a detailed and descriptive look at both transits. There will be quite a few joint impacts which Nodes will create along with Jupiter-Saturn-Mars in remainder of the year. We need to see impacts of those transits through separate articles. As always, we can’t cover everything in one article.
So, Rahu will transit into the sign of Taurus on Sep, 2020. So, let’s have a look at how this transit is going to impact Human Life on Earth on the basis of following points –
For anyone, who is completely unaware of what Rahu and Ketu is, please check these links - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I84CaYFrUjA & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzeprac2q00. Now, let’s see the basic nature of Rahu and Ketu and what all things these two nodes represent.
Transit Period – Rahu will move into Taurus on 19th Sep, 2020 and will stay there till 17th March, 2022. So, it is transit of almost 18 months which is a good enough time to make some events happen in our life. Again, it is never 1 planet which causes the event. So, this article must be read along with other updates on transits I timely post.
True Node Vs Mean Node – First of all, there are mainly 2 ways of calculating the transits of Rahu and Ketu. They are known as True Nodes and Mean Nodes. As per True Nodes calculations, Rahu and Ketu will change signs on 19th Sep, 2020 but as per Mean Nodes they will change signs on 23rd Sep, 2019. I am not going into debate of which one is more correct as the difference between the two is less than 1 degree. So, follow whichever fits your understanding. If you want more info on it, then please search with “True Node Vs Mean Node” or like terms.
Rahu’s Last Transit – Let’s 1st see how Rahu’s transit in Gemini manifested in last 18 months. Gemini is sign of Communications and Rahu is Illusion. As per me, if something actually messed-up our lives in last 18 months then it is mis-information and fake-news. Those who are in power utilized media and other sources of information to spread as much false information and lies as was necessary for their own purpose. This transit also showed that how receptive is human mind and how easily it can be manipulated by just forwarding some Whatsapp messages few times in a day. And how can we forget the result of Rahu in Ardra Nakshatra which brought news of Covid to the world and beginning of Rahu in Mrigshira Transit which made us see the rise of “I can’t breathe” movement and military aggression between India and China. So, Rahu in Gemini made its impact on human life. Hence, we can say that Rahu in Taurus won’t be an exception here and will make its own impact on our lives.
Eclipse Season – With this transit, now eclipse seasons will also switch to Taurus/Scorpio axis and we will have eclipses in the months of Dec, 2020, June, 2021 and Dec, 2021. For more info on eclipse season, please check this link - https://www.astrosaxena.com/eclipses.
Now, Rahu, Taurus and Rahu in Taurus.
Rahu - Rahu represents illusion, foreign lands, foreign things, Drugs, Medicines, any type of intoxication, fame, wealth, success, obsession, past-life left-over karma, movies, television, online world, cheating, imagined fears, unusual things, unique things, creativity, rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions.
During transit, Rahu is basically that obsessive energy which makes us gravitate towards the things related to house/sign where Rahu is transiting in next 18 months.
Taurus - Taurus is the 2nd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 2nd house of horoscope like, Hoarded Wealth, Assets, Savings, Finances, Luxuries and Liquid Money. All in all a sign related with luxuries and all the conveniences of life. Taurus is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras, i.e. Krittika, Rohini and Mrigshira. Also, Taurus' lord is Venus only.
Rahu in Taurus – So, now Rahu enters in Taurus. Rahu is considered as exalted in Taurus but in my opinion, Nodes are neither exalted nor debilitated. They are just doing their job of exploding & imploding respectively in every sign. It is just that in Taurus, Rahu explodes wealth and 99% population loves wealth and assets, so they made this opinion that Rahu is exalted in Taurus. This link may give you a better idea on what I am saying - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xicr4dwpuM4 . But Rahu is still in Taurus and can give following results to us in next 18 months –
- Taurus is sign of wealth and assets. Rahu explodes things. So, the most common result of this transit is that there will be lots of opportunity to gain wealth and assets during this transit. It may sound surprising under current situation of recession but if we think logically then there is only one way of coming out of recession and that is by infusing money into market, so that money can again circulate in market. So, sooner or later Govts would have to infuse money into market to come out of this situation.
- So, there will be lots of opportunities to make money in coming 18 months. People can gain a lot of wealth if they are working in right area.
- As Rahu represents unusual or alternate ways, people can find out new ways to earn money. And this is where the person’s evolution level will be at display where they will make a judgment between legal ways of making money or illegal ways of making money.
- As Rahu represents online world, online ways of making money will become more popular.
- As Rahu represents foreign lands, people may like to earn or shift their wealth and assets into foreign lands.
- Digital Economy will be on a high. People will use more online ways to trade and market. Crypto-currency can get global recognition. Share trading can also become a good source of earning wealth.
- But Rahu remains a malefic planet. It means that although there will be opportunities of money making in abundance but the biggest challenge for us will be to save that money. People can be equally spendthrift or they may need to spend money out of necessity. Here, those people will be able to actually benefit from these transits who are able to safeguard their money in right investment schemes. So, funds and investment schemes can see a boom during this transit.
- People can spend their money on living a lavish/luxurious life and in acquiring assets, items of conveniences and properties.
- Now, some negative traits of these transits. Keep changing your passwords or Pins for internet banking, Cards, Banking and Digital Payment Apps else there can be a big chance that we may lose money due to online fraudulent activities.
- An illusion of prosperity can be created by people in power.
- Cases of financial embezzlements, money laundering and keeping Money in foreign accounts can be on a high.
- Fake or Fraudulent schemes of making quick-money can be on a high. So, be careful about where you are putting your money.
- Even at personal level, people can do frauds and cheating to get some money from their friends or family members. So, be careful about the transaction or deals you do.
- We can get some indication of future transit of Rahu in Taurus by looking back at last transit of Rahu in Taurus in 2002-03. Interestingly, it was the time when Euro was introduced and accepted as currency by EU. So, we can be here for some major change on financial front.
- Taurus has other representations too like assets, securities, safety, luxuries etc but somehow they all are connected with wealth factor. So, I focused this transit on wealth. If wealth gets impacted, all other representations will automatically get impacted.
- Now, in whichever house Rahu is transiting in your birth chart in Taurus sign, things and people related to that house can become a source of wealth or they can also become a source of fraud. So, as always with nodes, keep your sense organs functioning.
- Last but not the least, as Rahu is already in Mrigshira Nakshatra (https://www.astrosaxena.com/rahutransitmrig) which spreads between Taurus to Gemini, we are already receiving some of these results. We can see the most intensified results of Rahu in Taurus transit when Rahu transits through Rohini as Rohini represents almost same things which Taurus represents.
House Co-ruled by Rahu – Rahu co-rules Aquarius sign with Saturn. So, whichever house of your chart has Aquarius sign, things related to that house will be manifested during this transit through the house where Taurus falls in your chart. But the actual event is based on chart + dasha + transit. So, just because of 1 transit, we can’t say that event is going to happen.
Rahu’s Natal Position – Rahu’s position in birth chart is very much important here. It will show the overall strength of Rahu in your chart. To know the real strength of Rahu, we need to also check the dignity of planets it is sitting with in birth chart and also the dignity of sign lord.
Dasha – As always, someone going through Rahu MD/AD will feel the full impact of transit. Others will also see some of the results as transit duration of 18 months is long enough to impact the human life.
Nodes Return – Those who are born with Rahu in Taurus in birth chart will also see full results, regardless of dasha, as it is an important transit of Rahu going over Rahu. It is normally called Nodal Return. Likewise, people born with Ketu in Taurus will have semi-nodal return. For more info, please check this link - https://www.astrosaxena.com/nodereturn.
Age of Individual – Results of malefic planets also depend on the age of person as they become mild after attaining maturity age. Rahu’s maturity age is 42 years. So, if you are over 42 or even close to 40, things can be more beneficial for you. But as it is malefic planet by nature, even benefits will come with some negativity.
Planets in Taurus & Aquarius – Also, if you are born with planets in Taurus, you will see results of those planets too as Rahu transits over them. So, the things that planet is karaka and things related with houses that planet rules will be blown out of proportion. Likewise, as Rahu co-rules Aquarius, the results of any planet in Aquarius will also be impacted and will be manifested through Taurus and the house where Taurus falls.
Rahu’s Aspects – Besides transiting in Taurus, Rahu will also give results of the houses where it aspects through 5th house and 9th house. From Taurus, Rahu will aspect on Virgo and Capricorn. So, wherever these 2 signs fall in your chart, those houses will also be effected by Rahu’s transit. Rahu’s aspects are more about educating ourselves and getting rid of illusion of Rahu in Taurus. So, we will be inclined towards exploring or education related with houses where Virgo and Capricorn fall in our chart, so that we can nullify the illusion or fraud of Rahu as much as possible.
Planets Transiting through Taurus – During the same transit of Rahu in Taurus, other planets like Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars will transit through Taurus in due course. So, all these planets will impact and get impacted by Rahu in Taurus. Venus transit will become more important here as it is lord of Taurus.
Rahu transiting over Nakshatras – Last but not the least, Rahu transiting over each nakshatra will give results of that nakshatra and the house where nakshatra lord is placed in birth chart.
- As Rahu moves backwards, Rahu is transiting over Mrigshira in Gemini right now and will continue this transit in Taurus, we will continue to get results of Rahu in Mrigshira Nakshatra as discussed here - (https://www.astrosaxena.com/rahutransitmrig) but as per the nature of Taurus as discussed above.
- When Rahu moves over nakshatra Rohini, it can bring abovementioned results with higher intensity as Taurus and Rohini represent similar things.
- When Rahu moves over Krittika, then we can become critical of things or people related with the house. Foster Parenting can be on high during that time.
Now, the main course.
Please see results of this transit from Ascendant and Moon Sign both. Predictions from Ascendant Sign will show what can actually happen and predictions from Moon Sign will show what our mind desires and how mind will react to such events? Another thing is that when Ascendant and Moon sign both point towards one event that event is more potential to happen. Again, the occurrence of event is based on chart + dasha + transit. Event should be 1st promised by the birth chart, then you should be under dasha which allows the event and then transits can bring the event. As we are looking at last step, it can’t be taken as final word on events to take place but we can get an indication where our focus will be in these 18 months as Rahu will make us gravitate towards things related to the house where it transits.
Aries Ascendant/Aries Moon Sign – For Aries people, Rahu will be in 2nd house/Taurus after ruling 11th house/Aquarius of income, gains, entrepreneurship and serving humanity. It shows that Aries people can have great gain of wealth from their business. Their source of wealth can be foreign lands or foreign people. At the same time, saving wealth can be tough as Rahu remains a malefic planet. They can have some foreign element in their family environment or they can travel away from family in foreign lands. There can also be some unusual or uniqueness in family matters. It is looking a great transit for Career and Wealth matters as Rahu is impacting all Artha Houses. As Rahu will be 5th from 10th house, it shows happiness from work and career but again, it is more so if person is in business setup. There can be chances of fraud within family.
Taurus Ascendant/Taurus Moon Sign – For Taurus people, Rahu will be in 1st house/Taurus of self, life path and overall life after ruling the 10th house/Aquarius of career, father, authority and recognition etc. This transit is all about focusing on self.

They can be inclined towards working for self. They can be travelling in foreign lands. They can gain wealth, fame and recognition through their own efforts. At the same time, Rahu can keep them under illusion or can give them an appearance which can be illusive to people. Rahu’s aspects on 5th house and 9th house shows that they need to get higher education. Important transit if someone is ready to give time to self.
Gemini Ascendant/Gemini Moon Sign – For Gemini people, Rahu will be in 12th house/Taurus of foreign lands, spirituality and expenses etc after ruling 9th house/Aquarius of higher education, long distance travels and people of different culture etc. As Rahu and 12th house both represent foreign lands, foreign travel is seen on cards for them. At the same time, they need to restrict their habits of being spendthrift else their expenses and losses can be high. It can also bring expenses related with health issues as 12th house represents hospitals. It also shows wealth through foreign lands or hidden sources. At the same time, they can be inclined spiritually and like to gather lots of information in spiritual matters. They can keep some weird or controversial spiritual views too. They can travel to long distances for higher education. They can have high sexual desires during this transit.

They can have R&R and Promotion in job. They can be very social in their networking circles. At the same time, saving money can be tough as Rahu remains a malefic planet. They can have a relocation. They can have some issues with their elder sibling. Major changes in life can bring gains, so they should not resist the changes. Entrepreneurship, Social Networking Circle or Elder Sibling can be the source of wealth. There can be major instability with their mother.
Leo Ascendant or Leo Moon Sign – For Leo people, Rahu will be in 10th house/Taurus of career & work after ruling 7th house/Aquarius of of Business, Masses and Relationship etc. It shows a definite inclination towards a career related with business and dealing with masses. Again, Rahu is impacting all Artha Houses which makes it beneficial transit for career. They can travel a lot due to their work. There can be some health issues related with father. They can have some issues with authority figures at work. Their fame may expand but again, it is best possible through their own work. Their focus will remain at things at work. There is a possibility of relationship at work. Their source of wealth can be father or work. But there can also be fraud or illusion involved with 10th house related things.

They can be inclined towards religious and philosophical studies. They can keep weird and controversial religious views. They can have issues with their teachers. They can be inclined towards higher education of their creative interests. They can love to interact with people different ethnicity, far distant lands or through online mediums. Good transit to learn new things and travel new places. They should be careful while travelling as it can bring illness. It can bring health issues to parents too. Their wealth can come through higher education and knowledge but they can get fake or fraud teachers or Gurus.

They should be careful against sudden events and accidents. They can be going through a major change of life. This change can be related with their children or love/romance matters. They can have some sudden or mystical event. Best result of this transit is when they dedicate themselves in some research oriented work and serve people through it. They can have issues with their in-laws and inheritance. Business and inheritance can be a source of wealth but they can have some chances of cheating or fraud also. They can have back-pain related issues. They can have high sexual desires.
Scorpio Ascendant or Scorpio Moon Sign – For Scorpions, Rahu will be in 7th house/Taurus of relation, business and masses after ruling 4th house/Aquarius of Home, Home Land & Mother etc. This transit again activates house of business and dealing with masses. So again, this will make them gravitate towards dealing with people through business and communications. They can feel gravitation towards being in relationship too and if chart + dasha are supportive of relation then they can get into a relationship. But main focus will be interacting with people based on business, communication and skills. Their business can become their best source of wealth but there is a big possibility of illusion or cheating in relationship matters. They can be in relationship with someone in foreign lands.
Sagittarius Ascendant or Sagittarius Moon Sign – For Sagittarius people, Rahu will be in 6th house/Taurus of daily work life, disputes and diseases etc after ruling 3rd house/Aquarius of business, communications, interests and skills etc. It shows that they will be focused towards their daily work and career as Rahu is again impacting all career related houses. At the same time, they should be careful about their health matters as this transit can bring some rare or unusual diseases. In times of confusion, go for 2nd diagnosis. Diseases can be related with Venus, like Sugar, Urine, Kidney & Diabetes etc. It shows that your wealth can get spent in diseases and disputes. So, please take proactive measures to avoid such circumstances. Overall, focus should be in career matters and try your best to not to get into any conflicts and disputes. Their work place will be source of their wealth but they can have certain illusion around their illnesses, colleagues or conflicts.

Child birth can be through unusual/alternate ways and there can be illusion in love matters. Their focus can also be on family matters or expansion of their family. But overall, the focus will be on finding happiness through education and creativity.

For Pisces people, Rahu will transit in 3rd house/Taurus of business, travelling & communication after ruling 12th house/Aquarius of Foreign Lands, Isolation and Hospitals etc. As Rahu is transiting in house of business, Pisces people can be highly inclined towards having their own business.
