Transit of the North Node, Rahu
The North Node's transit of the Sixth is fraught with pleasure, happiness and a sense of fulfillment. He is always welcome in the Sixth. All malefics are. As he transits the Sixth, enjoyments galore is the result. Enemies discover your power, as Rahu in the Sixth is said to be the Nemesis of enemies. He generally destroys their machinations.
Chandrashtama - The Black Hole of Natal Astrology
When Transit Moon transits the 8th from Radical Moon, Chandrashtama is caused ( Janma Rasyashtame Prapthe Chandre Chandrashtamam Smritham ). You should avoid major decisions during this period as Luna's 8th transit is considered malefic ( Anishtan ).
Anything of the flesh will be affected during this phase of Ashtama Indu. Tension grips your mind. You become subject to Melancholia. Mental tension, physical discomfort, delays in undertakings and travel, misplaced documents, sporadic clashes with partner - all these mark your pitiable state. During this 2 1/4 days, you are advised to pray and meditate as to quieten the mind and seek solace in the Eternal. As the luminary representing the Mind, the Moon, traverses through the dreaded Eighth House, mental peace makes a strategic retreat.
