The origin of Vedic Astrology has always been camouflaged in myths and legends. Although the ancient sages had a purpose of doing so but as time progressed the legends started being misinterpreted and the original message began to lose its worth.
People became fanatic followers (signified by the headless Ketu, the south node of the
Moon) of the legends. Questioning (signified by Saturn) and logical analysis (signified
by Mars) became a taboo in the orthodox cults of astrological tradition.
However, this lack of logical thinking itself was the cause of the downfall of this ancient
knowledge. Generations became questioning and when they saw that certain things did
not make sense and no one was ready to answer those critical questions, there was loss of
trust in the ancient knowledge (mistrust signified by Rahu which always taints the true
knowledge signified by Jupiter).
