Rahu is the north lunar node (ascending) and it along with Ketu is a “shadow planet” that causes eclipses. Rahu has no physical shape. It is an imaginary planet but considering the importance of Rahu in astrology, it has been allocated the status of the planet by Rishis. Rahu is known to confer malefic effects in general and is considered as a planet which induces laziness, delays, and hurdles in work. Rahu is known to reflect its shadow for 18 months in a zodiac. It can create confusion, depression and emotional imbalance if placed negatively in the horoscope. It is said that if Rahu sits in an auspicious position in the horoscope of a person, then luck is brightened. With this, the person attains sharp intellect. The native receives honour and fame in the society.
Hasta Nakshatra means Hand or Fist, or open Hand in Blessing. Another meaning taken from Hasta is laughter from root word “Has”. This is 13th Nakshatra of the zodiac, ruled by Moon. It is nakshatra of healing, health care and skillful people. It also represents hard work. Hasta nakshatra in astrology is one of the Tiryaka Mukhi Nakshatras (or the Nakshatras, which have their mouths curved).
