Exalted Rahu in Third House
Rahu is exalted in Taurus as well as in Virgo. For the sake of this discussion, we’ll consider both these placements of Rahu. Exalted Rahu in the third house of a horoscope is benefic in some cases whereas it is malefic in some cases. The influences of other benefic and/or 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 the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh’.
