What if Rahu is in Aries in first house? (Vedic Astrology)
Go Back to all Aries sign Articles
The Aries sign may actually fall into different houses in your birth chart depending on your Ascendant. Accordingly, Rahu will behave differently in different houses in the sign of Aries. If Aries sign falls on the 1st house then you are an Aries Ascendant and Rahu in the first house will then make you obsessed about yourself and in many cases self-centered. You may become aggressive and dominating to other people if the degree of Rahu is more. Also, it will make you physically very active if Mars is well placed in the birth chart. A lot of national and international sportsmen have this kind of Rahu placement. Aries Ascendants, in general, are very sporty and competitive due to their fiery nature.
If you are an Aries Ascendant with Rahu in the first house and Mars placed in the 6th house in the sign of Virgo then you can also think of a career in the field of sports. This is because 6th house is the house of fights and competitions and Mars does very well in this house in the sign of Virgo. In general, also Aries is a fire sign (like Leo and Sagittarius) and fire is meant for showing aggression in sports. When you eat something heat is generated and so it is this fire (heat) only that helps to be aggressive in sports. That is the main reason people born in the fire sign (Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries) are very active in sports, especially, if Mars is well placed in their birth chart.
Plz note: Whenever I mention locations of different planets in this article you can always think of it for the Aries Ascendant only as this article is all about Aries Ascendant.
Rahu in the first house in the sign of Aries is, however, not good for relationships and partnerships as Ketu in the 7th house is not good as Ketu is natural malefic. Ketu is all about giving up material things of life (giving up pleasures of life) and it is more about spirituality and things related to 8th house as Ketu is the significator of 8th house. The 7th house represents the relationship with the spouse also and so Ketu will make this relationship to suffer as Ketu rejects relationships in the 7th house as Ketu is not about relationships. If Mars is also placed in the 7th house you will be too much aggressive and dominating to your spouse. Mars and Ketu conjunction will be worse in the 7th house as Ketu is headless and Mars then will show aggression blindly which will be dangerous. But things will be different if Venus (the lord of 7th house) is also placed there but in that case, there will be a lot of sexual activities in the relationship as Mars and Venus conjunction brings a lot of sexual desire in the 7th house.
As before if Rahu is in the first house but Mars (lord of Aries, the Ascendant) is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Taurus then you may be very active in the creative field as Venus is the ruler of 2nd house and Venus is creativity, sensual pleasures, and money (finances). Many models, bodybuilders and fashion designers have such a placement.
Rahu in the 1st house in the sign of Aries and Mars in the 3rd house of Gemini will make you dominate your siblings and neighbors as 3rd house represents siblings and neighbors. Also, your communication will be harsh and it may also make you a political leader or a public speaker especially if the mercury (ruler of the third house) is placed in the first house along with Rahu.
Rahu in the 1st house in the sign of Aries and Mars in the 4th house in the sign of Cancer will make you dominate over your mother and you may also cheat people in the real estate or other 4th house related businesses as Mars in the sign of cancer is debilitated and so Mars become immoral.
Rahu in the 1st house in the sign of Aries and Mars in the 5th house in the sign of Leo may make you inclined towards dramatic arts, acting, performing arts, stage play, love and romance etc. This is because the sign of Leo represents all that and Mars is energy and so you are using your energy in the Leo creativity. Also, you should check the location of the Sun (ruler of 5th house) in the birth chart to understand better if you will succeed or not in what you are trying to achieve by putting your energy in the 5th house. If Sun is placed in the 10th house then you will surely shine in the creative field.
Rahu in the first house in the sign of Aries is, however, sometimes life-threatening (as Rahu is natural malefic and it is on the physical self in 1st house) especially if Mars is located in the 8th house and there is an aspect of Saturn (3rd aspect) to Mars from the 6th house. Or if there is an aspect of Saturn to Rahu in the first house. The aspect of Jupiter to either 1st house or 8th house, however, could save the life but still may result in injuries. To look at transits is important to confirm this.
Rahu actually amplifies the sign and its lord where it sits. So Mars is sometimes amplified if the degree of Rahu is more (read more here > about Rahu Amplification) and in that case, Mars becomes dangerous as then it becomes over-active and over dominating resulting in injuries, fights and even death.
Plz note: All that is mentioned above are just the possibilities. Reading the birth chart as a whole is important before getting into the final conclusion.
