Rahu is a shadow planet in astrology. It is also called the demon planet, which people usually dread. Rahu is the northern node in astrology, which causes eclipses. It is also known for causing delays, laziness, work woes, desires for materialistic gains, etc., especially during the Rahu Mahadasha period. Although Rahu isn’t a lord of any house in kundli or any zodiac sign, but it does occupy a certain house in kundli at a point in time. And in this blog, we will try to find out the effects when Rahu in the 1st house of kundli.
Though Rahu is often seen as a negative planet, but its effect on humans is not always negative. Just like any other planet in astrology, Rahu’s effects on the native depend on several factors. These factors are:
With that being said, you can talk to astrologer to find out in which house Rahu is currently in your kundli. Meanwhile, further, we will look into the negative and positive effects of Rahu in 1st house.
People with Rahu in first house are usually very courageous and of a brave mindset. They are driven by the urge to achieve success and accomplish whatever they lay their hands on. Rahu in 1st house, which is the house of self, inspires the native to take risks in life. And as they do so, they are likely to achieve success across domains.
AstroTalk’s astrologers explain that people with Rahu in the first house are also very creative. They come up with innovative ideas and are thus lauded for the same both in personal and professional space. They are the go-to people for anyone who seeks inspiration about literally anything. Also, these people can be really competitive. Their competitiveness isn’t restricted to just outsiders or colleagues but also against the ones who are close to them.
Moreover, people with Rahu in 1st house also possess strong analytical skills. They have a strong fervour for arguments and debates. These people are also a bit foody and aren’t really up for sharing that pleasure with anyone. These natives are also a bit introverted and don’t mind spending their time alone.
On the sexual side, the people with Rahu in the first house are highly erotic. Their sexual drive is off the charts, and one is assured to have a great intimate encounter with them. Also, another great thing about these sexual encounters is that they are not usally inspired by flings or temporary cravings. The natives with Rahu in 1st house seek to create a genuine relationship with someone before they strip down in front of them. Rahu in the 1st house along with Ketu in the 7th house is a great combination for love compatibility.
The negative effect of Rahu in first house is that it makes the native really argumentative. High on confidence, these people usually want their point of view to win acceptance among the crowd. This behaviour could leave people in their vicinity irritated. Have you been in such a place with your THE one? Hmm!! Maybe his Rahu is in the 1st house. Wish to check? Talk to astrologer now.
Also, though Rahu inspires people to achieve greater things in life, it does the same intending to create a sense of material lust in you. Rahu lures you to acquire more and more and pushes you towards immoral and illegal acts. Thus one really needs to rein themselves in terms of financial spending and intellect, especially during Rahu Mahadasha. Also, Rahu’s presence can quickly make a native prone to bad habits like drinking and smoking.

Rahu governs obsessions, desires and illusions. It affects one’s ability to judge their baby steps and run after worldly fame. In the course of acquiring all these pleasures, Rahu tends to make one insensitive towards the people in their life. This behaviour can lead to separation, lack of intimacy, property and money-related issues, extra-marital affairs, and lack of mental growth of children in the family.
In a nutshell, Rahu, as a planet, is a snowball of negative energies. It pushes us into illusions which ultimately lead to piling up of bad karma. Rahu can derail anyone from the path of goodness, and thus we must be very careful of the demon planet.
