Sir Isaac Newton saw an apple fall down to the ground from an apple tree and suddenly it struck his mind as to why this apple and all other things fall down to the earth and why don’t they fly up in the sky. This thought gave birth to the theory and law of gravity and so many new theories and laws have been established since then. But our point of discussion here is that what was the force that produced this thought in Newton’s mind, a thought which he had never read about or heard about anywhere before that moment. A thought that suddenly came to his mind out of nowhere and a new and very important theory was born. It was definitely a strong influence of Rahu on Newton at that time which brought such thoughts to his mind. So this is the first and most important significance of this planet. Call it sudden thought, call it intuition or some special and sudden visions, they are all caused due to the influence of Rahu on a person. Accordingly most of the inventors and successful scientists, people giving out theories which are very new but at the same time very right are under the strong influence of this planet called Rahu.
This planet is the ruler of mysteries and their sudden solutions, it rules sudden and quick gains from lottery, gambling, horse racing and likewise activities and it also rules sudden losses in all such fields. It can make or destroy a person in a matter of days and months. Taking current times examples, people who are making tons of Dollars from a website or websites which they launched some time back and never knew that these websites will be huge successes and will bring them uncalculated and unthinkable profits in a matter of few years, all such people are definitely blessed by this planet called Rahu among any other planets. Such is the power and magic of this planet that it can make or break fortunes in a matter of days and months. One day you’re just an ordinary man and the very next day you come to know that you’ve won a lottery or Jackpot worth many millions and suddenly you’re a very rich guy within a day. Ever wondered what planetary influence can be responsible for such sudden and huge gains. Well it’s none other than this planet which is called the ruler of mysteries and magic and is named as Rahu.
