Rahu is the North Lunar Mode and Ketu is the South Lunar Mode. Lord Rahu was the son of Sinishka and Hiranya Kashyap. He went into the sea to drink the ‘amrit’ obtained from Samudramathan and when he was about to drink Lord Vishnu disguised as Mohini and cut his head off. Later the north part was called as Rahu and the south part was called Ketu and they were made part of Navagraha.
