Similarly, it is never an overnight miracle to attain success in the field of sports.

This is where planet Saturn plays a significant role. It pushes the person so that he possesses sufficient perseverance for playing at the highest level.


This might appear to be unconventional but to become a successful sportsperson, there is an important role of Rahu in the horoscope of the person. With the sportsperson in the present era, a lot of fame and glamour is involved that makes the role of Rahu even more significant. An aura is created by Rahu around the sportsperson and with its assistance, huge wealth could also be earned.
