Aries | Mesha


As Rahu moves into the sign of Taurus, it comes to stay in the second house of speech, income, earnings and wealth accumulation for the Aries born individuals and Ketu comes to stay in the 8th house of death, taxes, inheritance and secret knowledge. It may cause increased desire to augment wealth and increase earnings. You look for opportunities related to work or business that can bring in greater money, recognition and assets. You may also find yourself more extroverted - talking and interacting a whole lot more than before. Whether it brings you good outcomes or bad, depends on the situation. It could be a good phase for operators, sales and marketing professionals, teachers, healers, mediums and political leaders. There is definitely greater mesmerism and charm to your speech. A word of caution though - since Rahu is an energy that does not understand satisfaction or limits, you may need to consciously control the urge to go on and on, especially when it comes to expressing displeasure or making a commitment at the workplace. You may easily go beyond the pale of possible and not be able to live up to your promise. This is also a period where you may be quite fearless, not fearing about other people’s opinion.
