Rahu is a shadow planet in astrology. It is also called the demon planet, which people usually dread. Rahu is the northern node in astrology, which causes eclipses. It is also known for causing delays, laziness, work woes, desires for materialistic gains, etc., especially during the Rahu Mahadasha period. Although Rahu isn’t a lord of any house in kundli or any zodiac sign, but it does occupy a certain house in kundli at a point in time. And in this blog, we will try to find out the effects when Rahu in the 1st house of kundli.
Though Rahu is often seen as a negative planet, but its effect on humans is not always negative. Just like any other planet in astrology, Rahu’s effects on the native depend on several factors. These factors are:
- The house that Rahu is camping – For example, if Rahu is camping the house of enemies in your kundli, then you are likely to be safeguarded from your enemies. However, if Rahu is in the 2nd house, i.e. the house of finance, you are likely to experience losses, business failure, etc.
- The fellow planet in the house – If, for example, both Sun and Rahu are in the same house in your kundli at a particular point in time, it is to complicate the situation for the native as Rahu and Sun are enemy planets. But if Rahu is camping in the same house with a friendly planet, then the result may be positive.
- The Zodiac sign influence – Some zodiac signs have a positive impact on Rahu, while others have a negative. So Rahu in the first house will affect the Aries ascendant differently and Leo ascendant differently.
With that being said, you can talk to astrologer to find out in which house Rahu is currently in your kundli. Meanwhile, further, we will look into the negative and positive effects of Rahu in 1st house.

Negative effects of Rahu in 1st house
The negative effect of Rahu in first house is that it makes the native really argumentative. High on confidence, these people usually want their point of view to win acceptance among the crowd. This behaviour could leave people in their vicinity irritated. Have you been in such a place with your THE one? Hmm!! Maybe his Rahu is in the 1st house. Wish to check? Talk to astrologer now.
Also, though Rahu inspires people to achieve greater things in life, it does the same intending to create a sense of material lust in you. Rahu lures you to acquire more and more and pushes you towards immoral and illegal acts. Thus one really needs to rein themselves in terms of financial spending and intellect, especially during Rahu Mahadasha. Also, Rahu’s presence can quickly make a native prone to bad habits like drinking and smoking.

Rahu governs obsessions, desires and illusions. It affects one’s ability to judge their baby steps and run after worldly fame. In the course of acquiring all these pleasures, Rahu tends to make one insensitive towards the people in their life. This behaviour can lead to separation, lack of intimacy, property and money-related issues, extra-marital affairs, and lack of mental growth of children in the family.
In a nutshell, Rahu, as a planet, is a snowball of negative energies. It pushes us into illusions which ultimately lead to piling up of bad karma. Rahu can derail anyone from the path of goodness, and thus we must be very careful of the demon planet.
