In Indian Astrology besides the classical seven Planets two Nodes of Moon known as Rahu an Ketu are also considered very important.
In Western Astrology they are sometimes called Moon Nodes or specifically Moon North Node and Moon South Node. Some Astrologers like to call them Dragons Head and Dragons Tail, still some call them Caputs head and Caputs tail.
In Arabic and Persian Astrology they are called Raas and Zanb.
In Jyotish Moon Nodes are given a lot of importance and lot of Astrological combinations are written about them an they are even used in the famous system of Dasas to time the important events in ones life.
Western Astrology has not given them the exact importance as they deserve, whereas on the other hand in Jyotish no Astrological reading is complete without them.
While during my journey in Astrology i learnt a lot about them an experimented a lot with them in my readings but one thing which i note was that a very little literature is available on the significance of them on net an even books written on Jyotish and western Astrology. So to fulfill this gap i have written some of the significances of Ketu or Dragon Tail or Caputs Tail or Zanb, with the hope that it will show the astrologers how vast are its results explored in Jyotish Ancient Literature.
So much more can be written on these two Nodes of Moon but i will keep them for further pages to be written in future.
