Why Rahu is insatiable? Amazing logic, Rahu only has head no lower body. When we eat food first go through tongue taste is felt then food goes into lower part of body.
Rahu does not have lower body just represent the upper head.
Therefore, Rahu- affected person always feel insatiable and tend to have binge eating. Such people keep eating but doesn’t get satisfaction and always feel something is missing.
Rahu represents meat & all animal based food, smoking, drugs and alcohol. These are a kind of addictions and never give you satisfaction like normal food.
