Debilitated Rahu in Fourth 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 fourth 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 fourth house when it is benefic. Benefic debilitated Rahu in the fourth house of horoscope can bless the native with good results related to mother, education, wealth, properties, vehicles, profession, finances, reputation, fame, 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 debilitated Rahu is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Scorpio with Mars. Debilitated Ketu is placed in the tenth house in Taurus, benefic Sun is placed in the sixth house in Capricorn with Saturn, Jupiter is placed in the second house in Virgo and Moon is placed in the first house in Leo. In this case, the native may become a lawyer. He may possess good knowledge of his field and he may witness success, money and recognition as a lawyer. The native may specialize in criminal matters and he may practice at a higher court of law. He may witness good results after the age of 30 and better results after 35.
If benefic Venus is placed in the seventh house in Aquarius and benefic Mercury is placed in the sixth house in Capricorn with Sun and Saturn, the equation may become better. Benefic Mars forms Ruchaka Yoga in the fourth house whereas Sun and Mercury form Budhaditya Yoga in the sixth house. In this case, the native may possess very good knowledge as a lawyer, he may practice at a higher or the highest court of law of his country, and he may come across a lot of success, money and recognition as a lawyer. After the age of 40 or 45, the native may get elevated to the post of a judge at a higher court of law. He may enjoy a good career and he may witness a lot of success, authority and recognition as a judge. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, the native may serve as the chief justice of a higher court of law and/or he may get elevated to the post of a judge of the highest court of law in his country.
Apart from these, benefic debilitated Rahu in the fourth 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 fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to mental health, mother, education, properties, vehicles, wealth, profession, finances, reputation, marriage and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Such placement of debilitated Rahu can prove difficult for mental health of the native and the situation may become worse if such Rahu is influenced by other malefic planets and/or an overall malefic horoscope. Taking an example, suppose malefic debilitated Rahu is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Scorpio with malefic debilitated Moon. Malefic debilitated Ketu is placed in the tenth house in Taurus with Sun, benefic Mercury is placed in the eleventh house in Gemini, Venus is placed in the twelfth house in Cancer and debilitated Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Capricorn. Sun and Ketu form Grahan Yoga in the tenth house whereas Moon and Rahu form this yoga in the fourth house. In this case, the native may suffer from a mental disorder which may trouble him and he may have to avail medical treatment for many years. The native may also have to spend some time in a mental asylum.
If debilitated Mars is placed in the twelfth house in Cancer with Venus, and malefic Saturn is placed in the tenth house in Taurus with Sun and Ketu, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may have a serious mental disease or disorder, and he may suffer a lot because of it. The native may have to avail medical treatment for his entire life and he may spend many years in a mental asylum. If the finer factors and running times are negative, the native may even die in a mental asylum. He may lose his father during his childhood, his mother may also have issues related to mental health and the native may not get married throughout his life.
Apart from these, malefic debilitated Rahu in the fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
