Rahu is “He Who Commands Direction” and he is the North Node of the Moon.
Rahu (Sanskrit: रहु, rahu) is the North Node of the Moon and is responsible for eclipses. As the Moon pertains to the mind, Rahu commands the direction of the mind’s outward projection. This symbolically signifies the occult power wielded by Rahu. Even the luminaries are subject to the clandestine influence of Rahu. He is associated with the rising of kundalini energy as well as the fall into material delusion. His control is intangible and his influence is illusive. With proper direction, Rahu bestows great power and insight into spiritual and material matters. He represents the mind’s insatiable curiosity and relentless pursuit to gain experience.
