‘Pra Rahu‘ is the Deity of Fate and Fortune, and the Astrological Ruler of the Dark Phases of the Zodiac. He is an Asura type Deva of the heavenly Realms, and is the God of Eclipses, seen to have strong influence on Horoscopes, much like the planet Saturn does in western Astrology. Pra Rahu is a Personification of Higher Powers in force, and is seen as a Deity by Thai Buddhist People, to worship in order to turn the line of fate and improve karma, appease angry gods, and to remove obstacles. As legend tells, Whoever tries to Kill Pra Rahu is Thwarted, for he just remains Alive, being an ‘Immortal’ God.
It is said that when Pra Rahu’s shadow falls over the Line of a Person’s Fate, that Person will never achieve Success in that Period of Time, will have nothing but Problems with Money, Proffession and Family at Home, Illness Stricken and Unlucky. Pra Rahu is able to remove obstacles of bad luck, to protect against black magic, and to defeat one’s enemies. Hence, the faithful devotees of this deity will receive Pra Rahu’s auspicious blessings of protection, luck, and prosperity. If you feel that your Fate and Horoscope is not Auspicious, then it could be that Pra Rahu is interfering. You can solve this problem by making Bucha offerings to Pra Rahu every Wednesday;
Piti Buang Suang Bucha Pra Rahu – Ceremony to pay reverence, offerings, prayer and Chanting to the Rahu Deity for improvement of Horoscope and cleaning of negative Fate.
Light 10 black incense sticks (‘Toop’ in Thai), and five types of black offerings (e.g. black sticky rice, black jelly grass drink, black semolina or sago pudding and the like).

When you begin to Bucha Rahu Deity, you should make the first ever session in the evening of a Wednesday (any time from 7 pm onwards).After you have done this once, you can make Bucha in the daytime if you wish, but the first time you must include the food offerings of black foods as well as the black incense.
The second time onwards only the incense is necessary in the daytime if it is a lot of trouble to get the food offerings.
To make a powerful Bucha to Rahu, it is recommended to have a Rahu image, statue or amulet to use as object of focus whilst praying to the Deity and chanting the Kata.
