Rahu, the north node, is equated with Saturn the great malefic by Vedic Astrologers. A strong Rahu gives the individual worldly powers and success. In the spiritual realm, Rahu can give psychic powers, but also there may be danger from drugs, and danger from black magic. On the positive side, the influence of Rahu can put us in harmony with collective trends and give popularity, prestige, fame and power.

泰国民间信仰流传;

每個人都會有運程起伏,好運時得到貴人扶持,行衰運便會遇到小人。小人作惡多端,不但親近不得,還要多方設法去剋制它,使它不能作祟。

泰 國人剋制小人的方法是配戴「啦胡天神」的佛像。

啦胡天神佛像是通體黑色,頭戴華蓋,豹眼獠牙,身軀高大,口中咬著太陽或月亮,神情十分兇惡,使人望而生 畏。
惟是神像只有上半身,那是別有緣故。啦胡生性頑皮,時常闖禍令聚神十分討厭他……,

傳說聚神憎恨啦胡的程度月亮女神更甚,便向眾神之神舌娃誣告啦 胡是一位邪神,舌姪得知後大怒,便將啦胡橫腰斬斷。

舌娃最後終查明真相,發現啦胡是一位正神,而月亮才是邪神。最後,便將他封為正神,啦胡得以沉冤得雪並 位列仙班。

而啦胡十分憎恨背後中傷別人的人,所以又有食小人佛的別號。
由於啦胡的半截身體被斬去,全因是月亮女神的誣衊,所以嫉惡如仇,佛像口咬月亮,便是這個緣故。泰國人還把日蝕和月蝕,當作是啦胡天神對日月兩神的懲罰。

每逢日蝕或月蝕,泰國人認為這是向啦胡天神請求庇佑和許願的最好時機 。.
