This ultimately seems to defeat the purpose and detracts us away from the positive Rahu qualities.
One of the simple remedial measures that has been suggested in ancient texts and suggested by several astrologers is to wear a silver chain or anklet on one’s left foot. Wearing this silver chain on the left foot, is believed to calm down and properly channel the Rahu energy in our life. And at the same time, this is believed to curb and control any negative Rahu tendencies in our actions.
As we know silver metal is ruled by the moon and in Jyotish, moon represents our mind. It is because of this connection, that Rahu is believed to have maximum effect on the moon. Because any instability or excessive compulsive behaviors (all represented by Rahu) would be first experienced by the mind in any individual before they manifest in their physical form.
Rahu is the co-ruler of Aquarius which is the zodiac sign that represents the anklets (as per medical Jyotish). So, when we combine all these energy significations, it makes sense that by wrapping around a silver chain on our left ankle, we are symbolically and energetically ‘curbing our mind’ to ensure that it stays calm and works in a focused and channeled way instead of going astray by any excessive influences of Rahu.
Also, the silver chain when wrapped around in this manner, is energizing, and supporting the ankle, which would also symbolically indicate how the mind will stay strong and not get adversely influenced by Rahu (which co-rules the ankle- Aquarius).
Because of this reason, I would suggest that instead of merely wearing a silver anklet on the left foot, it is better to wrap a silver chain on the left ankle.
