2020: The energy of Rahu : A Year of of Rapid Change & Transformation !!

Updated: Jan 7, 2021

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.  - Rob Siltanen

As you enter the next ten-year cycle, the cultivation of greater wisdom shifts into an awareness of alignment, accountability, balance, and groundedness to help integrate your newly-expanded consciousness throughout your mental, emotional, psychic, and energetic bodies. This shift of focus surely brings an exhausting ten year cycle to an end, as you enter timelines of evolution, maturity, stability, and support. As the next decade (2020-2030) acts as an emotional, energetic, and personal harvest of total living redemption—a tell-tale sign that you have already entered and are acclimating to the climate of a 5D reality—the year of 2020 will assist you in entering this process...Allow your ‘old self’ to die and create a ‘new self’ in alignment with your own higher self and with consciousness !!

“In order to save myself, I must destroy first the me I was told to be.”

2020 (2+0+2+0 =4) is a year of Rahu (4 represents the energy of Rahu)....To understand 2020, we must understand the nature of this shadow planet first. Rahu is the power of transformation – that alone is his singular, fundamental trait. You can learn everything else about Rahu just by always keeping this in mind. The very story of Rahu’s birth centers around his ability to transform himself from one shape into another!

Rahu is a mathematical point in vedic astrology which is calculated from the Moon however it has the ability to manifest itself into anything & everything. In astrology, Rahu represents illusion. Rahu, also known as the demon God plays the role of a mastermind, a magician, illusionist or the one who has huge desires for luxury, foreign articles, hi-tech things, and everything lavish & abundant.

All cultures depict Rahu as a serpent, dragon or snake. This is why traditional cultures despise snakes so deeply. They even go so far as to call Rahu the Devil. In the biblical Garden of Eden, Rahu was the serpent who inspired mankind to make themselves better than what they were, to be unafraid of change, to be unfettered by authority – to eat the apple from the from the tree of knowledge.

Christianity portrays Rahu as Satan / Lucifer, the ultimate force of evil. 

Rahu, the serpent, is the force of evolution itself. If it were not for Rahu, nothing would evolve, nothing would change. Anything you have ever done to change yourself – and any change that has ever happened in humanity or on Earth itself, has all happened with the power invested by Rahu.

Rahu is all about transformation – the kind that compels you to move forward and makes you think about making the future better. He impels you forward and outward.

Rahu is the force that makes you radically change your lifestyle – trying to improve your future by making your outer self a better reflection of your inner potentials.

“Change is inevitable, but transformation is by conscious choice.” Heather Ash Amara AUTHORITIES AND TRADITIONS: CRUMBLED

Rahu in order to improve things, makes a series of enemies. Authorities hate Rahu, and those who cling to traditional despise him.

Rahu is revolutionEvery single revolution that has ever occurred in history did so because of Rahu’s effect on the human race. All revolutionaries are manifestations of Rahu.

Rahu has no love for tradition! He is concerned with the future, not the past. He wants evolution. Therefore he is the antithesis of tradition, the bane of hierarchy, the smasher of authority....He is wild, unconventional...a radical liberal.

All sorts of people moved by radical liberal energy are manifesting the power of Rahu. The revolutionaries, the protestors, the anarchists, the dissidents, the rebels – all are Rahu’s offspring. They receive very little love from society. By majority, society is always a flock that clings to the safety of tradition and authority. Thus Rahu’s offspring become the outcasts, misfits, and fringe elements of any society.

“Transformation isn’t sweet and bright. It’s a dark and murky, painful pushing. An unraveling of the untruths you’ve carried in your body. A practice in facing your own created demons. A complete uprooting, before becoming.” Victoria Erickson


In a way, the conservatives are right. Rahu is quite dangerous. They are way too scared of him and don’t know how to embrace his power in good measure for positive growth, but still, you can see their point of view to some extent. If you let them, the radical forces of change will create pure chaos.

Rahu is the dark serpent head from which pure chaos flows.

That’s why astrologers tend to connect him with confusion and uncertainty. Rahu brings transformation which brings revolutions. Revolution means destruction of the old ways to make room for the new. Destruction causes chaos...rubble... dust and smoke thus making it difficult to see anything clearly. It gives way to confusion.

Rahu on his own, untamed by any other planetary influence, would create a world of constant revolution – pure destruction, pure chaos, pure confusion and uncertainty. Thankfully, he is almost never completely untamed.


Rahu is fantastically and wildly powerful. He has the ability to topple a government, the ability to make the Sun itself go black! His power is greater than even the Sun’s! He is wild and uncontrollable. Thus he is the cause of compulsive behavior, uncontrollable urges, overwhelming emotions which can not be stopped. He is the wild thing within you. POLARITY

Because Rahu is such a wild and unbridled force of change, you could well describe him as “polar” or “bi-polar” Rahu’s radicalism is so extreme that it will run you through the entire spectrum of changes.

Rahu does this with a purpose – or at least, there is a positive purpose to be gained: under Rahu’s “guidance” you will see it all. Having seen it all, you can later on try to make sense out of everything. Rahu’s cycle in your life is like a chaotic revolution. It is only really after the revolution is over – after Rahu has subsided – that we can establish a new, hopefully better, society and prosperity.

Persons with the ability to grasp opposite things at the same time are blessed by Rahu. People who are unable to maintain balance, but flip back and forth in a “bipolar” pattern are cursed by the same energy.



Rahu and his other half, Ketu, are not ordinary planets. They have no mass, they occupy no actual physical space – therefore they are not bound by the normal laws of space and time. As a result they transcend the boundaries between here and there, past and present and future. Rahu specifically bridges the present to the future. Those who can see the future do so as a result of Rahu’s power. This includes acolytes of divination as well as it includes scientists and inventors who foresee things like electric lights and handheld communicators, and then make them a reality in the present. Rahu always sees the future, and that is why he tries to revolutionize and change the present. He sees the future, and then works on the present to make it change and become the future. THE SKY AND SPACE

Just as Rahu’s awareness focuses on the future, it also focuses on moving upward and outward. The great sky is Rahu’s domain. And even more so is the void of outer space beyond.

Rahu is the force behind science fiction. In fact the reason why we associate flying and spaceships with the future is because Rahu rules both: he rules the future and he rules outer space and the sky. Rahu is the master of airplanes, spaceships, and all futuristic forms of travel like teleportation.

In our recent history we have dabbled with space exploration. Rahu is the master of space and space travel, is also the prime force of liberalism and radicalism.


Outer space and the sky is a symbol of our future. Rahu wants to transform the present into the future and therefore tends to destroy it, creating a full spectrum of chaos as he goes about toppling old systems of tradition and outmoded authority figures. He does all this so that he can transform us from what we are into what we must become.

“Yes, your transformation will be hard. Yes, you will feel frightened, messed up and knocked down. Yes, you’ll want to stop. Yes, it’s the best work you’ll ever do.” - Robin Sharma


You may be at the effect of negative habits, dependencies, behaviours, thought patterns, relationships, and addictions. You may find yourself trapped between the short-term pleasures you receive and the longer-term pain you experience. Avoid choosing the path of instant gratification, at the expense of your long-term well-being.

See 2020 as an opportunity to bring these negative influences into your conscious awareness, so you can then take action to free yourself from their hold. Shine your light on the negative patterns that have been standing in your way for so long, and over time, you will loosen the grip they have on you.... it is unlikely that you will be free from your addictions and dependencies overnight. It may be a recurring pattern for you, and it will take a tremendous amount of willpower and strength to free yourself from their influence. But know this.... it is possible, and it is up to you to make it happen.

2020 can also represent sexuality and your wild side. You may be exploring bondage, fetishes and your deepest, darkest fantasies. If you can do this within a safe, sacred space, it can be a very enriching experience. However, it has the potential to turn into something that may be unsafe or detrimental to your well-being in the long-term, so again.... set clear boundaries, choose your partners wisely and have your ‘safe words’ ready to go.


· Forgive those in your life you have wronged or those you have been wronged by — including yourself.
