    Rahu and Ketu - the North and the South node of the Moon are the intense Karmic planets and they shift their position 17 August, 2017.

    Rahu will now stay in the sign of Cancer and Ketu will stay in the sign of Capricorn till March 7, 2019.

    This change to the Cancer- Capricorn axis has come after 18 years and the last time this transit happened was in 1999/2000. You should juggle back your memory and try to recall some events of your life during 1999/2000 to get a general direction of events that are going to unfold due to this Rahu-Ketu Transit.

    Since these are shadow planets, they simply take on the characteristics of their dispositor and bring results related to the house they are situated in. Take a look at what the current transit of the Nodes augurs for your sign:

    You will need to be extremely cautious as timelines will be tight later and you may not get any grace period to deliver what you promised. Also, this is a period to avoid any kind of argument or engaging in a controversial conversation.

    The Capricorn born individuals need to be prepared in order to handle what the Rahu-Ketu transit May bring in its wake. Others may feel that you have become more sensitive to what is spoken "to you" or "about you" - the ego may become more fragile and you take things easily to heart.

    You may experience levity and a sense of relaxation.

    Those individuals who may have experienced hopelessness or depression or such like mental health issues experience recovery or better and supportive conditions.

    The opposition and rivalries at work may reduce owing to the fact that you are now able to receive recognition and suitable opportunities because of your efforts. Your position stands validated and growth prospects also open up.

    Those in the academic pursuits need to steel up and cultivate resilience as there may be hindrances in academic goals. There could be a difficult choice where you may have to choose between studying and starting your career.

    Whatever your pressing conditions are, do remember that they will not remain the same. There is hope in the future. Relationship with members of extended family or even the friends circle may change, bringing some valuable lessons.
