Rahu and Ketu do not have any physical or celestial bodies like the other planets. Of the two places where the Moon crosses the ecliptic (the path of the Sun), the north point is called Rahu and the corresponding South point which is exactly 180 degrees away from the former is called Ketu. These are very sensitive and effective points and they cause powerful influence on the human affairs. Rahu and Ketu have a retrograde movement in the Zodiac at the rate of 19 degrees, 20 minutes per year. When the transit of the Sun and the Moon are close to Rahu and Ketu, the Moon can intercept the light of the Sun from reaching the Earth, and this causes a Solar Eclipse. When a full Moon is formed while the Moon is crossing the points of Rahu and Ketu, the shadow of the Earth falls on the Moon and a lunar eclipse is caused.

Ketu whose other names are Dhwaja and Sikhi acts like Mars. It generally reflects the traits of the sign it occupies provided it is not aspected by any other planet. If it is aspected or conjoined by any other planet it inbibes its qualities. For example, if it conjoins a benefic planet it will produce good effects of that planet and if it aspects or conjoins a malefic planet it will produce malefic influence in its period or sub-period. But the benefic planets with which it is conjoined or which it aspects will give adverse results. It casts its aspects on the 5th, 7th and the 9th houses besides influencing the house it is occupying.

Generally it is favourable in the 3rd, 6th, 9th, 10th and 11th and unfavourable in the 2nd, 4th, 7th and 8th. It gives mixed results in the1st, 5th, and 12th houses. It is Karka for salvation, enlightenment of soul, occult sciences, mysticism, etc. In the planetary periods Rahu is more powerful than Ketu. Ketu produces such results according to the Rasi it occupies Persons afflicted by Kethu dhosham are stricken with fears of dacoity, bad habits, loss of property, loss of face and putra dhosham .
