However, it does not necessarily mean that their ideas magically manifest in front of themselves in the physical matter.

Instead, it simply means that their power of mind and initiation provided by cardinal modality is very strong which enables them to efficiently manifest their throughs by putting their ideas into action.

Rahu as the master of illusion greatly supports this ability as it gives the ultimate knowledge on how to function in the material world efficiently.
