Rahu and Ketu are two mathematical points that arise from the intersection of the Moon’s orbit around earth and earth’s orbit around the Sun. The north intersection point is called Rahu and the south point is called Ketu. It must be noted that Rahu and Ketu move in clockwise direction opposite to the rest of the planets.
Although these are two diametrically opposite mathematical entities, their effect on life on earth is so profound that they have been elevated to the rank of real planets.
In 2016, Rahu transits along the zodiac and enters astrology sign Leo on 29/1/2016. Ketu enters Aquarius on the same date. These planets will transit these sign until 9/11/2017. After that date Rahu will enter Cancer and Ketu will move to Capricorn.
