Rahu Enters Cancer and Ketu Enters Capricorn.
Find out how Rahu/Ketu transit of 2017 in Cancer and Capricorn respectively will affect you according to the janma rashi. If I take the latitude and longitude of Mumbai, India, Rahu/Ketu will enter the signs around evening
of August 17, 2017 and will stay in these signs for approximately one and a half year till 6th March 2019. These are the dates if we take the “mean nodes” type of calculations for these chhaya grahas. If we take “true nodes”,
which represents more wobbling motion, then the dates of transit through Cancer and Capricorn respectively are September 06, 2017 to March 22, 2019. Rahu and Ketu are mathematical entities exactly 180° apart. Therefore,
when Rahu enters Cancer, Ketu enters Capricorn. Both the transits have different effect on the individual as per his/her janma rashi as derived from the natal horoscope. While Rahu and Ketu are exactly 180° apart, it does
not mean that an adverse transit of Rahu is beneficial transit for Ketu and vice-versa. Both Rahu and Ketu being malefics follow the rules of providing beneficial transits when going through 3rd, 6th and 11th houses. Other
transits are adverse..
