Any or all of these, one can select as per one's convenience.
· Donation, in charity of a piece of cloth of cola colour or blue to a needy person on any Saturday, will gain favours of Rahu.
· Donating in charity if possible Gold or Lead also appeases Rahu.
· Distributing Til (sesamum seeds) and mustard oil on any Saturday is another way to please Rahu.
· Offering Black Flowers in Hawan (Fire Sacrifices) will go a long way to appease Rahu.
· Giving away of black/Cola colour blanket in winter and also use of black/Cola Colour blankets for self brings the favour of Rahu.
· Deep devotion to and worship of Lord Hanuman with favourite Mantras, Hanuman Chalisa regularly at least for 42 days is a powerful way to appease Rahu.Reciting Rahu's Vedic Mantra with Red Sandal or 8 Mukhi(Facet)Rudraksha Bead Garland is likely to bring encouraging results.
Rahu is regarded as similar to Saturn in its effect. Smoky blue is its colour.Instinctual and animalistic in nature, Rahu is interested only in achieving all that gives pleasure, and even if it achieves all it wants, it is never satisfied (which is true of our animalistic nature). Although Rahu rules no sign of the zodiac, the zodiacal sign Virgo is its sign. Virgo is in fact assigned to Mercury, but Rahu being akin to Saturn and Mercury being a friend of Saturn, Rahu thus has authority over Virgo. Friendly signs are Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Cancer and Leo are its enemy signs. Mercury, Venus, and Saturn are friendly planets. Rahu is an enemy of Sun, Moon, and Mars. Rahu gives auspicious results in Taurus and Libra. Rahu is capable of giving power when rightly posited or exalted and it gives fame, success in politics, money, and physical beauty (i.e., attraction).
Rahu is most effective between forty-two and forty-eight years of age. Although it gives beneficial results while posited in the above-mentioned signs and houses, the gains obtained during its major period do not last long and one always feels anxious and dissatisfied, even if one gets everything one desires. Rahu creates physical and mental illnesses that cannot be diagnosed and cured easily. It produces suicidal tendencies, fears, phobias, poisonous bites, murder, theft, imprisonment, and diseases like cholera, dysentery, skin diseases, swelling of the uterus, and constipation.
