This is the story of the mystery of Rahu
The gods and the demons
the peaceful and wrath ful deities
were churning the elixir of immortality

the serpent--
Vasuki was the rope
and the supreme Vishnu became the form of a gigantic turtle that filled half the universe
His name was Kurma---- Lord Turtle
The supreme Vishnu can appear in any form that he choses
and no one is more dramatic than Vishnu
the turtle felt an itching on the back of his shell
and the satisfaction of being scratched and the churning produced the elixir of immortality amrta
the gods took the tail and the demons took the head---
the demons were forced to drink the poison of the serpent
but the gods being humble took the bottom and did all the work
Now here comes Shiva he drinks all the poison but a few drops spill and all the poisonous creatures of the world gobble it up--

Now we look at the top above picture
this is the amphitheater of the demigods in assembly taking their share of the nectar of immortality that they enjoy for their purpose of universal service
In the amphitheater Rahu sneaks in and tries to steal the nectar
( the moon represents the heavenly nectar)
and Vishnu in the form of the most beautiful woman( Mohini )
recognizes his disqualificaation due to his impurities
and she chops his head off to kill him---
but because his lips touched the spiritual amrta nectar his head became immortal and his body was killed
so Rahu is the planet --- the head without a body
the north nodes of the moon
and it is during eclipses that this invisible planet tries to "eat" the
sun and also the moon
then Rahu becomes visible for a brief moment
during the eclipse

Rahu, the north node, is equated with Saturn the great malefic by Vedic Astrologers. A strong Rahu gives the individual worldly powers and success. In the spiritual realm, Rahu can give psychic powers, but also there may be danger from drugs, and danger from black magic. On the positive side, the influence of Rahu can put us in harmony with collective trends and give popularity, prestige, fame and power.

MANTRA FOR RAHU (north node, dragon/snake head) NO 4 Monday/earth colors/ focus; The heart, will and desire to learn the karmic lessons you have to learn in this life.
