Rahu conjuncts Guru in Simha till august. This is termed as Chandala yoga by a few. A few others opine that Rahu is a shadow planet and hence he takes on the behavior of the planet that he conjuncts with. Here Guru is quite comfortable in Simha as Ravi is a natural friend of Guru. Hence the effect of Guru is quite prominent here. But people might meet some Gurus who might be everything other than a real spiritual master, but in disguise. So caution advised on this front for all.
The effect of Rahu is to bring a little modern outlook towards thinking. There may be influence of foreign cultures, there will be an inclination to travel abroad and associate with people of opposite cultures, there will also be an attraction towards luxury, pleasure, amusement and enjoyment. If these were already present in your life, then there will be an increased inclination towards these.
This time the time of transit coincides with the year end and hence the amusement can really take abnormal turns and cues this time. Though Rahu transits by the end January, the effects will begin to become evident a month early. Caution advised on all social interactions. Read the Rahu transit report for complete analysis.
Ketu trasnits Kumbha. Ketu is not comfortable in the house of Shani as they are mutual enemies. Hence the result of this placement of ketu is to give us a general feeling of dejection. Rahu is the provider of material comforts and ketu is the depriver of it. Hence its Rahu who matters more to this material world. But ketu’s transit will assist those who are in a spiritual path. Ketu is not a pretender like rahu. Hence, the changes ketu brings are real and tough to deal with. Now that ketu is in the house of Shani who is slow by nature, Ketu will cause a lot of anxiety. This can lead to insomnia in the beginning and gradually take on a form of neurosis for some.
Guru transits Kanya in the third quarter of the year. Guru is neutral to Budha. Hence, when Guru is in kanya, there is a spiritual quest that begins. For those who have never been spiritual, this will be just a time of baby steps in spirituality. For those who are already in that path, can achieve something substantial in that path and for those who are already spiritual, there will be a marked progress towards the goal. This is a very good time for research related activity and courses.
Thanks for your interest and support.
Wish you a great year 2016.
