As we know in astrology there are nine planets. However, these planets are not all considered real planets. Rahu and Ketu planet are termed to be shadow planets as they have not attained any specific position in the aspect of astronomy. So how does Rahu and Ketu hold such great importance in astrology and why are they considered as ruling planets in an individual's birth chart? Well to get the answer for this question we have to understand the formation of the planets Rahu and Ketu.
During the time of Amrit manthan, gods and asuras were fighting over the Amrit which was to be churned or taken out from the sea. Lord Vishnu took the form of a tortoise in order to help and smooth the process of Amrit manthan. However, as we know the Devas won the battle and got the Amrit for themselves. While the Amrit was being distributed among the Devas, an Asur disguised himself as a Deva and got in between the line of the Devas to get some Amrit for himself.
He was given some Amrit, however Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu came to know about the disguised Asur. However, before he could drink the Amrit Lord Vishnu with the help of his Sudarshan chakra cut the head off of the Asur. But before the Sudarshan chakra could reach the asur he had already taken a sip of the Amrit. Because he had already taken a ship of the Amrit, the Asur became immortal. However his body was still divided into two. The head of the asur later came to be known as Rahu and the left over body or the torso came to be known as Ketu.
This is the story of the formation of the planet Rahu and Ketu. Now we can understand the logic behind them being called as malefic planets as they were originally and Asur who disguised himself to get the Amrit that the Devas won for themselves. By originally being an Asur, these planets have more ill and negative effects on an individual life than they have good or positive effects.
