House Number 25

After chopping off the heads of Maya (illusion),
The agony, mischief and the other things.
I call upon your gibbous moon
“Please leave my dragon head alone for
His sins and treachery in the first house”.
It’s time to retrograde.

I know,
On the full moon nights,
My reds and whites will be in tandem.
The galaxies will collapse at my feet
Shiva will return to my arms
And, I will be complete.

Notes: In Vedic astrology, when Rahu unhesitatingly assaults the Sun (and KETU assaults the Moon) and is said to swallow it, and to cause the “Eclipse”.
