Remedies of Rahu Mahadasha

Rahu stands for illusion, delusion, indecisiveness, confusion, and wrongdoings. All these are different states of the mind. These are emotions which we feel when Rahu is standing on our head in its full capacity. You may have suicidal tendencies or you may attempt some trials at it too. This is because Rahu’s effects are mainly directed towards our mind. Therefore, to reduce the effect of Rahu you have to increase your mental capacity. You have to align your thoughts. Get involved in mental exercises, rejuvenation activities – be it playing some sports, swimming or simply going for a walk. In fact, failure in controlling mental damages will gradually result in physical suffering.

End of Rahu Mahadasha

When Rahu Mahadasha finishes, the respect, fame, and worldly things the natives have earned come to an end. Rahu is neither a friend of the Sun nor the Moon, hence, it will make you pass through some of the most troublesome periods in your life. These include the Rahu-Sun, Rahu-Moon, AND Rahu-Mars period.

On the other hand, Rahu favors people in the 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 11th houses, known as Upachaya houses. If an individual experiences Sade Sati, Ashtam Dhaiya, or Ardha Dhaiya, then the placement of Saturn, Moon, and Ascendant Lord has to be taken into account.

After the end of Rahu Mahadasha, the next Mahadasha is that of Jupiter. Jupiter tends to take you out of your mental delusion and gives you wisdom and intelligence to choose the right path. This comes as a consolation for withstanding the problems, suffering, and pain given by Rahu. Your anxiety, restlessness, confusion and mental trauma finally come to an end.

Factors To Consider If You Have Rahu Mahadasha

You cannot avoid a Rahu Mahadasha. It is destined to arrive in every human’s life for a period of 18 years after Mars Mahadasha. Instead, you can avoid fatal damages of Rahu Mahadasha by following these measures:

  • Check for anxiety or depression
  • Things that get on your nerves should be avoided.
  • The functioning of the blood circulation system should be proper.
  • Vengeance –taking attitude must be avoided as it increases blood pressure. Thus, blocking the arteries, resulting in toxicity in the blood

If you are in the negative influence of Rahu you must indulge in soothing activities regardless of which stage of Rahu Mahadasha you are in. Moreover, dopamine, a chemical released by the nerve cells, promotes the motivational behaviour of the individual.
