Rahu Ketu Peyarachi is related to Tamil astrology and horoscope and is the transit of Rahu and Ketu – two of the Navgrahas whose planetary movements are important in astrological calculations. Rahu Ketu Peyarachi or transit 2017 date is July 27. As per some panchangs and calendars it is on August 17, 2017. Rahu will move into Kadakam or Karkadaka or Karka rashi or Cancer Zodiac. Ketu will move into Capricorn Zodiac (Maharam or  Makar Rashi ) for next one-and-half years.

Rahu Graha and Ketu Graha when placed in appropriate houses in a person’s horoscope is said to be highly beneficial. Some astrologers are also of the opinion that when they enter the wrong house in a horoscope they can create problems.

Those people who believe in astrology perform special pujas and rituals in Navgraha temples on the day to attain benefits and to stay away from troubles.

Teachings from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna

God alone does everything, He is the Operator and man the machine. Vedanta philosophy gives an illustration.

Suppose you are cooking rice in a pot, with potato, eggplant, and other vegetables. After a while they begin to jump about in the pot. They seem to say with pride: 'We are moving! We are jumping!'

The children see it and think the potatoes, eggplant, and rice are alive and so they jump that way.

But the elders, who know, explain to the children that the vegetables and the rice are not alive; they jump not of themselves, but because of the fire under the pot; if you remove the burning wood from the hearth, then they will move no more.

Likewise the pride of man, that he is the doer, springs from ignorance.

Men are powerful because of the power of God.

The puppets dance well on the stage when pulled by a wire, but they cannot move when the wire snaps.
The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, 893
