He is depicted in art as a serpent with no body riding a chariot drawn by eight black horses. The time of day considered to be under the influence of Rahu is called Rahu kala and is considered inauspicious.

Mythology Reference

This story connects to the great churning of the ocean by the Gods and the Demons to take out elixir of life. Lord Vishnu was afraid and wanted to ensure that the elixir should not reach to the hands of Demons, if so then they would destroy the world. So, Lord Vishnu came in the form of Mohini. The demon Swarbhanu caught the trick and He took the form of a god and settled himself in between Sun and Moon. In that moment before the Demon could drink the elixir, Sun and Moon identified him. Sun & Moon went to Lord Vishnu & he got Angry cut off his head with Sudarshan Chakra. By that time he took some drops of elixir down his neck , that’s why both the head and body became immortal.

That is the only reason we call this Demon as Rahu who has the body of a serpent. Rahu occupies the head of the serpent , And rest of the body part we call as Ketu as per Vedic Astrology.

However, Rahu and Ketu never forget to take the revenge from Sun and Moon for exposing them. Therefore, they became the causes of eclipses.
