Rahu in astrology depicts speculative nature and past life karma in astrology. Moreover, it illustrates old age diseases, alcoholism, smoking habits, etc. too. It holds no lordship over any house or zodiac sign in a Kundli. However, when an astrologer performs Kundli analysis, they make sure to consider the condition of Rahu.

Moreover, in Vedic astrology, Rahu indicates paternal grandfather. It depicts natives with evil thoughts and actions.

Benefic and malefic Rahu: Houses and planets that impact Rahu

Planet Rahu in astrology doesn’t possess the lordship of any house. However, it rules over a few Nakshatras— Ardra, Swati, and Satabhisha. Some astrologers believe that the planet exalts in the Taurus and Gemini zodiac sign. But, when it is in the Scorpio and Sagittarius zodiac sign, it gets debilitated. All this leads to benefic and malefic Rahu in horoscope of an individual.

Along with it, when Rahu placement occurs in the Leo, Virgo, and Aries zodiac signs, it gives favorable results. Also, the position of Rahu in the 1st, 3rd, 6th, or 11th house from the ascendant, makes Rahu benefic in the horoscope of the natives. 

With all this, even the Rahu transit impacts the condition of the Rahu planet in the natal chart of the person. Lastly, the Mahadasha and Antardasha of Rahu also hold immense impacts on the effects of benefic and malefic Rahu in the Kundli.
