A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Rahu in Virgo, so the description given here may change for you if your Rahu is although in the sign of Virgo but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets. --
Rahu 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 left-over karma, movies, television, online world, cheating, imagined fears, unusual things, unique things, creativity, rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions.
Virgo is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical skills of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.
One thing we have to remember with posts related with Rahu through Signs is that Rahu converts himself as the lord of the sign it is sitting in and then amplifies quality of lord. Like, when Rahu is in Virgo, Rahu will take all the qualities of Mercury (Lord of Virgo) and then will amplify those qualities out of limit. Rahu also does same to the planet it is sitting with. Like, if Rahu is with Saturn then it will take all the qualities of Saturn and blow them out of proportion during Rahu MD or Saturn MD. It is always better to have Rahu alone in a house rather than conjunct with a planet. Another thing with Rahu is that recently I have come across of the view that Rahu and Ketu don't have aspects on 5th or 9th house, for the simple reason that they are shadow planets and for aspects you need a sight not shadow. I am yet to verify it on at least 50 charts, so for now I will continue with traditional approach of 5th and 9th aspects of Rahu. Ideal placement for Rahu is to sit with an exalted planet, then it takes all the qualities of the exalted planet and amplifies them.
Now, when Rahu comes into Virgo, it takes upon the analytical, critical and detailed oriented Virgo qualities of Mercury and explodes them. These people become true perfectionist, almost an obsessive-compulsive case. Whatever they do, they want to do it with 100% perfection at any cost because basically Rahu is a malefic energy. Analytically, they can be best accountants, stockist or CAs. But as Rahu remains a malefic energy and if Mercury is also not well placed as Virgo's lord, then these people can become the biggest scammers. In such case, they can be biggest cheaters and share market fraudsters. They can also have great interests in pets and working with them as Veterinary Doctor. Medical is also a good profession for them. Perfect placement for someone who wants to be perfect. There are two ways to look at the results of all these acts. Some people say that all these acts are paying them money in the end, hence they are doing it. I feel that money is the most natural outcome of any work. You do any work in this world and you will get money. There is no work in the world which doesn't pay you back. So, I feel that the basic fact that they are dedicating themselves to a higher cause is meaningful and most important. Money is an outcome which is bound to come.
Now, the impact of these traits will be different for different people based upon the Nakshatra Rahu is in. If Rahu is in Uttara-Phalguni Nakshatra, then Rahu will be impacted by Sun's position as Sun is lord of Uttara-Phalguni Nakshatra. When Rahu is in Hasta Nakshatra, then Rahu will be impacted by Moon's position as Moon is lord of Hasta Nakshatran. If Rahu is in Chitra Nakshatra, then Mars will be impacting as Chitra is Mars' Nakshatra.
Sign lord wise, Mercury is ruler of Virgo, so Rahu's functioning is very much dependent on the condition of Mercury.
Tomorrow, Rahu in Libra.
