The big Rahu Ketu transit on August 18
In Hindu astrology, the North node of Moon is popularly known as Rahu and the south node of Moon called Ketu. On August 18, both of them have changed their moon signs— while Rahu moves into Cancer, Ketu is shifting to Capricorn. Since Rahu and Ketu are known as strong planets that can have many malefic effects, this transit might have many repercussions for each moon sign.

For Arians, this is a good time to relocate to another city or country. The planet Rahu however, will not be favourable for your health during this transit — you might fall sick often.

Taurians might have a troubled relationship with their siblings and they might even cut off all ties with them.

This transit can have widely different effects for you. For example, Rahu can make you have a huge financial gain on the one hand, while on the other, you might even lose all your money.

This transit can place you in a commanding position — you will earn the respect of your friends and colleagues and you will rule your workplace. On the flip-side, you might even face strong resistance from those around you, due to your position in the society. Learn to deal with this resistance with a tactful mind and play your cards wisely.
For Leos, this period will be more like your “redeeming period” — according to astrology, Rahu can make you pay for your past mistakes during this transit — you might suddenly feel trapped, depressed or lonely. You might also find that suddenly, all your friends and family have turned their back on you. You must learn to be patient during this period and do what you think is right.
If you are in a relationship with a Virgo man/woman, then this is not a very favourable time for you — not only this, for either parent of this moon sign, you will be increasingly stressed for your child. Also, couples might find it difficult to conceive or plan a baby during this time — you should wait for the storm to pass and then think about your future.
If you are a working man or woman, then you might see a rise in your career — you will be given more responsibility at work and you might even get promoted. While Rahu makes you perform well in your career, Ketu, on the other hand, makes you inept at handling domestic matters — you might find it difficult to balance your work with family and this might give you a lot of stress.
For Scorpions, Rahu might make you lose all your money due to a loss in business — not only this, you might resort to borrowing money from a friend and will struggle to repay it later.

This transit will serve as a wake-up call for you — you might suddenly find yourself in the middle of nowhere — due to your past actions, you will now see yourself losing a lot of precious relationships. Make sure to make amends while you still have time — not only this, this is also a good time to save some money for your rainy days.
This period will serve as a cleansing period for you — the planet Rahu will urge you to get rid of unwanted things, desires and relationships in your life — you might want to shut off both toxic thoughts and toxic people from your life.
