Moon is mind and it thinks negative as well as positive that is why they are the north and south node of the moon. Rahu and Ketu is not planet they are the shadow of the moon (positive and negative thought).They work on subconscious level of person that is why they are more helpful to understand life than other planet. Humans cannot find higher selves without understanding the lessons of Rahu and Ketu. They represent the darker side of our nature which we need to overcome our inner turmoil of emotions fighting with good and bad.
