Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus & Saturn) own two sings each. From mathematical points, the nodes have no mass and these are not visible to the human eye like the other planets, the nodes are assigned the status of planets (Rahu & Ketu) due to their strong influence on human affairs.

Due to slow motion it is called Mandah (Slow), which takes 30 years to take a complete turn of the zodiac. According to dictum, ‘sani saneh saneh charati iti saneshcharah’. Due to slow motion, Saturn is the karaka for longevity. As per the another dictum, ‘Sthana Vriddhi Karoti Mandah’.
