Debilitated Rahu in First House
Rahu is debilitated in Scorpio as well as in Pisces. For the sake of this discussion, we’ll consider both these placements of Rahu. Debilitated Rahu is benefic in the first house in some cases whereas it may turn malefic in some cases. The influences of other benefic and malefic planets on Rahu and the overall theme of horoscope are important criteria when it comes to decide the functional nature of Rahu in a horoscope.
As the number and strengths of benefic and/or malefic planets influencing Rahu in a horoscope increase, Rahu may become more benefic or malefic. The concept of benefic planets turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets, and the concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets have been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.
Let’s look at some results which may be given by debilitated Rahu in the first house when it is benefic. Benefic debilitated Rahu in the first house of horoscope can bless the native with good results related to health, lifespan, personality, spiritual growth, profession, finances, fame, reputation, authority and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Such debilitated Rahu can help the native achieve success as an astrologer, tantric, hypnotist, magician, psychic, healer, palmist, tarot reader, numerologist, vastu expert, spiritual guru, philosopher, researcher, analyst, discoverer, scientist, engineer, mathematician, astronaut, astronomer, politician, diplomat, singer, actor, writer, painter, sculptor, musician, dancer, sportsman, architect, fashion designer, dress designer, video game designer, software developer, IT professional, web developer, reporter, journalist, blogger, columnist, anchor, television show host, orator, speaker, teacher, coach, consultant, advisor, doctor, therapist, telecom officer, transport officer, revenue officer, administrative officer, police officer, army officer, fire-fighting officer, naval officer, air force officer, pilot, professional dealing in movie industry, television, music, book, sports, arms, media, finance, education, coaching, advertisement, marketing, event management, matrimonial, software, IT, investment, health, pharmaceutical, fitness, travel, food, hotel, airline, cosmetic, real estate, ecommerce, telecom, internet, website, social media, liquor, casino, tobacco industry or some other type of professional, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Taking an example, suppose benefic debilitated Rahu is placed in the first house of a horoscope in Pisces. Debilitated Ketu is placed in the seventh house in Virgo with benefic exalted Mercury, Sun is placed in the sixth house in Leo with Saturn, benefic Mars is placed in the fourth house in Gemini and Jupiter is placed in the second house in Aries. Mercury forms Bhadra Yoga in the seventh house. In this case, the native may engage in a creative field. He may become a singer as well as songwriter and he may come across good amount of success, money, fame and recognition through these fields. The native may produce music albums and he may also sing for movies.
If benefic exalted Moon is placed in the third house in Taurus and debilitated Venus is placed in the seventh house in Virgo with Mercury and Ketu, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may possess very good talent as a singer as well as songwriter, and he may also compose music. He may witness very good amount of success, fame, money and recognition through these fields. The native may travel to several countries of the world for live performances, and he may have a large number of fans across the world. He may receive several awards for various songs written, sung and/or composed by him. If the finer factors and running times are favourable, the native may have his net worth in billions by the age of 50 or 55. He may get married to a beautiful woman who may be an actor or some other creative professional and he may enjoy a good marriage. The native may get married after the age of 40 or 45.
Apart from these, benefic debilitated Rahu in the first house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
On the other hand, malefic debilitated Rahu in the first house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to health, lifespan, personality, addictions, profession, finances, reputation, spiritual growth and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Such malefic Rahu can trouble the native with various types of health problems including mental health problems, and it can also make him interested in various types of intoxicating substances like alcohol and drugs. Taking an example, suppose malefic debilitated Rahu is placed in the first house of a horoscope in Scorpio with malefic Mercury. Debilitated Sun is placed in the twelfth house in Libra, malefic Venus is placed in the second house in Sagittarius, malefic debilitated Ketu is placed in the seventh house in Taurus with Saturn, and benefic Moon is placed in the fifth house in Pisces. In this case, the native may consume alcohol and harmful drugs on regular basis. Such substances may trouble him with loss of health, money and reputation, among other things. The native may also witness reduction in lifespan, and he may die before the age of 60 or 50, depending on the finer factors and running times.
If Mars is placed in the second house in Sagittarius with Venus, and Jupiter is placed in the twelfth house in Libra with Sun, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may become a drug addict and he may consume harmful drugs in heavy quantities as well as on regular basis. He may suffer from various types of health problems and he may also witness reduction in lifespan. Hence the native may die before the age of 50, 40 or even that of 35, depending on the finer factors and running times. He may die because of drug overdose or due to failure of a vital organ like heart or liver. The native may not get married till the age of 40 or he may not get married throughout his life.
Apart from these, malefic debilitated Rahu in the first house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
