@ernst I have noticed that  in tajika system there is no mention of Ra or Ke's role either in 16 yogas or them influencing year lord , Muntha or muntha lord or any of the sahams, is that the missing link ? or there is logic behind it ? its a bit of a surprise to me as rest of other zodiacal systems use them very heavily

Persian astrology did not use the nodes. Even Brihat Samhita which is based on persian astrology does not use nodes. The Hindu astrologers used nodes and in the last century nodes have propogated to most systems of astrology, but even in western astrology, until recently they ignored the nodes. When i started western astrology one of the first questions astrologers would ask each other was, "do you use the nodes?" 

Ask a hindu astrologer that, haha, he will look at you like you are crazy.

@ernst Interesting background, and in my view and after studying Tajika system which I find more  astronomically centered  systems compared to any other systems and top of that Persian loved moon so I dont think Persians would not have known these two points , may be  it did not make sense to them as I am sure they had cultural exchanges with hindu astrologers back then  and nodes must have crossed their  mind but not the system ... ha ha .. needs research .. afterall nodes are just crossover points on ecliptic a speed bump on the way - what happens when heavenly bodies(planets)  come close to these points ? just like burmuda triangle ?
