What Rahu does in the sign of Aries in Vedic Astrology?
Go Back to all Aries sign Articles
Aries sign is really a sign of physical activity as Mars rules it and Mars is all about showing physical strength and aggression. When you eat food heat energy is generated in the body which gives the strength to work. This energy is represented by Mars. When you do any detail-oriented mind work or communicate then your mercury gets activated. When you are enjoying something then Venus gets activated (for example when you are watching a movie). Similarly, when you do any physical activity Mars gets activated as then you are utilizing the energy stored in your body.
Saturn is just the action and repetitive work and it doesn't make you move. Mars is energy so it makes you move. You cannot move any of your body parts unless you have the energy of Mars. In sports strong Mars is needed as you cannot run if your Mars is weak in the birth chart (debilitated Mars).
If Rahu is in the sign of Aries in your birth chart then mostly your life is about getting yourself involved in some kind of physical activity or activities as Rahu is pretty much your life's mission. Rahu is obsession and obsession mostly never ends and so the placement of Rahu tells a lot about your life's mission.
Just think of a blacksmith whose life is all about hammering hot iron on an anvil to change its shape. Hammering like this requires a lot of energy and so Mars is activated. This is really the type of activity showing the placement of Rahu in Aries in a birth chart. Just check these 12 signs below and you will better know why Rahu in Aries best matches for a blacksmith.

Clearly, you can see the best match for a blacksmith is Rahu in the sign of Aries as his life is mostly about physical activity.
It is not difficult to predict the life of a person if Rahu is in the sign of Aries. Clearly, he will be the type of person involved mostly in some sort of physical activity as per his profession. There are many professions which Mars represents like policemen, army people, chefs, sportsmen, watchmen, terrorists, firefighters, vehicle drivers etc. All the professions where you need to show your aggression and compete > that is where Mars is involved and so Rahu in Aries is possible in your birth chart.
Many people involved in hiking, trekking, and mountaineering mostly throughout their life (I mean if it is their profession) may have their Rahu in Aries sign too in their birth chart.
But Rahu in Aries native could do anything depending on the location of Mars. For example, if Mars is in 3rd house in the sign of Aries then the native may use his energy in communication or writing or using skills of hands as 3rd house represents that. It simply means putting a lot of energy (efforts) in writing or communicating or using skills of hands. So Rahu in Aries could even make you a writer as you are putting your energy in writing.
Aries is a fire sign and it is also a sign of being aggressive. Rahu in Aries has its negative aspects too. For example, If Rahu is in the sign of Aries in the 2nd house (for Pisces Ascendant) and if Mars (lord of Aries) is placed in the 8th house along with Jupiter (Ascendant lord) in the sign of Libra then there could be a case of sexual violence. 8th house is a dusthana house and Mars in 8th house is not always good. Same could be the case if Rahu is in the first house in the sign of Aries and Mars is located in the 8th house in the sign of Scorpio with Venus.
Also, Rahu is Aries people are prone to accidents and injuries if Mars is situated in the 8th house and if there is a third aspect of Saturn in the birth chart or from transit. Rahu actually amplifies the sign and its lord where it sits. Rahu in the sign of Aries will amplify Mars if the degree of Rahu is more and in that case, Mars could be overactive and over-aggressive to cause injuries, fights or accidents.
