Title(s) North lunar node
Sanskrit रहु
Rahu is a Hindu Asura. He is the son of Diti and was present when the gods churned the ocean for the nectar of immortality. Rahu stole some and drank it but had not fully digested it when he was killed by Vishnu. His head became the north lunar node whilst his body became Ketu, the south lunar node.
