Astronomers do not consider any planets or bodies of Rahu and Ketu in the sky. But, according to the calculation of Indian astrology, Rahu and Ketu signify two points of intersection of the orbiting paths of the Sun and the Moon. Rahu and Ketu lie opposite to the Earth in one direction (180 degrees). In astrology, their existence has been accepted as shadow planet because as per any entity that affects human life is called planet.
These two zodiac signs transmit zodiacs at an opposite speed other than the planets at a difference of 180 degrees. It takes 18 months to travel on one zodiac and about 18 years to travel on twelve zodiac signs.
Rahu’s behaviour is seen as the most influential in human life. Effects of Rahu in 12 different zodiac signs are described below:

The native will get a higher post than his/her qualification here. It will also yield good results from the government. Rahu in this house will give results similar to the Sun in the exalted position. But the spirit in which the sun is sitting will be affected. If Mars, Saturn and Ketu are weak then Rahu will give bad results otherwise it will give good results in the first house.
