Rahu in 6th House: Rahu shows a fake view and can soak one in illusions and imaginations, making one chase mirages or hallucinations. Perhaps one can lose his self-identity in this confusion.
It completely clouds the potential for clear reasoning, and this can make the person lose his direction. When one gets lost in his journey, he looks for shortcuts or even looks back to see his last movements. Or one gets depressed and indulges in drugs or other practices to get relief from the problem.
Is Rahu in 6th House Good or Bad?
So what happens when a planet that is never satisfied gets the place of your services in the horoscope? Firstly understand the significance of the 6th house. Because since Rahu does not have a body, so it behaves like the sign lord or planets in the 6th house. The 6th house represents enemies, obstacles, disputes, allegations, and diseases.
Depends Upon the Life Phase
When you are young, life is full of inquisitiveness and adventures. At that time the 6th house indicates your competitive spirit. Rahu can surely give good results if one is writing or appearing for competitive exams. Because Rahu can’t take a loss. His approach can be deceitful but he wants to win every crisis by hook or crook else he becomes hyper.
And here comes the real difference, if one takes shortcuts then one might win the temporary situation but later this agitation takes the form of diseases.
And Rahu can give strange diseases which can be difficult to diagnose. Either medicine might not work or you get the wrong medicine. At times this can worsen the situation. Diseases governed by Rahu are Depression, Anxiety, Wavering attention, and Psychiatric issues.
On the other hand if one takes that work that is signified by Rahu like digital media, social apps, virtual reality, or photography. Then Rahu might give disappointments initially as this position has to teach you a certain lesson.
At times lessons include delay and frustration. But once he handles his imperfections and becomes valuable to others, then Rahu in Upachaya bhav gives him the best opportunities to fulfill his wish.
Rahu in 6th House for Marriage
When Rahu is in the 6th house, take it as the 12th from the 7th house of marriage. Now your spouse has Rahu in the 12th house, so this can give your partner a job or business collaborating with foreign countries or import-export.
It can even make your partner take the spiritual track. If afflicted then your partner may desire alcohol or any other addiction as he craves pleasure, perhaps he thinks that pleasure can be attained through such habits. Now, this is the house of your services and the position of Rahu states your preference for benefiting people.
Now let’s combine the above two effects, your partner wants to taste ecstasy in an unorthodox way, and you seeking contentment, by helping others. The result will be a distance in the relationship, as you both have different ideologies. Here I will add that when Rahu is in the 6th house. Ketu a separatist planet in the 12th house brings detachment to personal relationships.
Rahu in 6th House for Finance/ Career
Rahu in the 6th house is considered quite beneficial in terms of gaining money. The prime reason is that Rahu in the 6th house will make Mercury powerful, as Mercury is the Karaka of the 6th house. And it also represents the business.
Rahu in Upachaya house gives good results if the dispositor is strong and making Dhan yoga. This position can grant you the opportunity to work in a weird environment. You can use keywords like strange, out of the box, or against social norms. This can give ups and downs in a career if there are other disturbing factors.
The bottom line is that if there are strong Dhan Yogas in your chart then this Rahu will connect you to foreign currency or organization. Or career governed by Rahu. Else it will make you take wrong decisions, seek power and status, and land into conflict, dispute, and Diseases.
Rahu in 6th House: Other Effects
Regarding aspects, there are different schools of thought. But in my view, Rahu is smoke, and this can spread anywhere in an unexpected manner. So always take the planets associated with Rahu. This includes planets aspecting Rahu, conjunct with Rahu, or even Rahu aspecting any house or planet. The important point here is that Rahu can be anywhere, just like a cloud or shadow.
The 6th house Rahu in Astrology aspects 10th house which is a Karma house so it can bring some strange things related to your Karma. You will do such daring things which a common man will never opt for.
Rahu also aspects the 12th house which is a Moksha house so you will be inclined to spirituality and religious organizations.
Another aspect will be in the 2nd house. Rahu’s influence on the 2nd house makes your speech very unique, your family will be very unorthodox, and you will make falsehoods while choosing the language, food, family values, and savings. So remember Rahu’s association adds strangeness and insecurities to the concerned houses and planets.
Rahu in 6th House: Transit Results
When Rahu travels in the 6th house for 18 months, it will activate all the 6th house significations through Rahu. But the natal position should be considered, as results will be decided only by its real strength. The 6th house is the house of Shad Ripu, and Rahu will make you confront your hidden enemies.
Shad Ripu means 6 types of enemies, Anger, Lust, Greed, Attachment, and Ego. I believe this will be a testing time, as it will teach you to handle all these enemies. Firstly face the conflict, then it takes you to depression, furthermore transforms you, then you win and take the absolute path.
Rahu represents deceit and trickery, and its placement has a purpose, to teach you lessons. You unknowingly take the wrong path, fall into the trap of illegal activities, hide them and lie, but one fine day, it unveils your true identity. Now the beauty is that if Jupiter has a strong influence, on Rahu then you learn lessons from small blunders, or even learn from others’ mistakes.
But if there is no positive influence on Rahu then it becomes uncontrollable so what happens when an elephant goes wild. It does destruction and eventually gets seized.
Similarly, if you fall prey at the hands of a monster, you might enjoy the glamour, limelight, and luxury but when the devil has to close the deal, it will close. And later after the massive loss of image and status, your eyes might open.
