Legend says that Rahu and Ketu are actually two parts of the same Asur (demon). Rahu’s head was severed when he joined the line of Gods disguised as one when Lord Vishnu was distributing Amrut (nectar of immortality). But since he had already tasted Amrut, he didn’t die; his body and head remained alive separately. When Rahu’s head and his body (which was later named as Ketu) went to Shiva for justice, Shiva added them to the planetary trajectory and gave them the power to overshadow the Sun once in a while and play an important role in the astrological charts.
Rahu and Ketu are also known as north and south nodes of moon in vedic astrology. They have absolutely opposite characteristics. Rahu controls obsession and Ketu controls detachment. Their coming together with Saturn is usually considered ‘not so good’ according to vedic astrologers. Especially when Saturn is retrograde the way it is now. Saturn rules discipline and is supposed to be a strict planet. Coming together of these three planets often signifies karmic debts, and karmic fulfillments. Money can be the key word.
