Ketu is a planet which plays very heavy in any horoscope. But I would begin with a complete solace , nothing to be scared. Ketu has 2 ways impact, both positive & negative. On one hand, Ketu can bestow best of material prosperity. And on the other hand can devastate anything & everything what is created & exists. It represents extremes , creation and destruction, old and the child, matter and the spirit. It works & has impact like two faces of the same coin. Ketu as a planet, is the elder most planet with childlike sense. It can be cruel with precision and will throw tantrums (bad moods, uncontrolled outburst/ emotion) till he gets what he wants.
Ketu – 2 sides of a coin
Do you remember the old audio cassette, which used to play both ways (side-1 and side2) and Ketu resembles to it. Ketu is the only planet which plays both ways. This working positive bestows material prosperity on to the native. However, this working negative bequeaths material adversity to devastate everything. So it can have 2 extremes with totally different traits for different natives at the same time. Those earning in billions relinquishing their fortune and those earning considerably donating substantially at the same time are under the game plan of a strong Ketu.
Symptoms of Ketu is active on you.
Have you been cautioned by some elderly when you about to start something most paying or rewarding ? Any time feel that some one or some power hypnotize you. Sometimes you feel that someone most friendly , best well wisher stabbed on your back. Someone known to you in person has stalled stall your advancement. Has someone taken advantage of your conducive nature ?. Does the presence of someone make you extremely uncomfortable despite he/she has done nothing wrong ? Is someone a better learner and hearer than you ? Does someone has better intuitions or smells better than what you can ? Anyone becoming your confident after posing a sorry figure. Any particular color repels you or comes as a sense of loss once you spot it. Cats scare or repel or attract you the most. All these features reveal that you have a strong Ketu connect.
Direct & fierce effects of Ketu
Now, understand the above analogy, if Ketu has opined to have something from the native or to deny something what the native wants then there will be no power which can facilitate that thing to happen.
With Rahu in operation, a person becomes futuristic but an activated Ketu pushes back the native to the past, he starts fantasying or re-enacting the past things with a different perspective or can continually remain in the past.
My primary objective to bring out this blog is to explain the hiccups associated with an over-activated Ketu in horoscope. And especially when it has no connection with the trines, where it come beneficial. Another truth is that this planet is the primary source of bread and butter for an astrologer as most of the cases which he deals for the client has a fierce Ketu to combat.
Effects of Ketu – a story with relevance
Taking a lead from my article in Hindustan times on 23.09.2018. I have seen Ketu spoiling the career of a brilliant I.I.T. student who was chosen by a prestigious company for undertaking a specific job, but this company ditched the native, (Ketu under action) and he has to look for another assignments months after he had graduated. The other job opportunity was also in an equally prestigious, and which too could not be availed as the native’s health broke (Ketu becoming more severe). He had to eventually settle for a degrading job in an average company (Ketu growing more malefic and harder to control).
What all it can result in – Effects of Ketu
I have seen some of the worst harassments done by this planet on to a native and few of them work a mention here:
- Ruining of extraordinary business.
- Sudden loss of much-cherished possession,
- Loss of love for no evident reason,
- Public humiliation for no valid reason,
- Wrong operations procedures in a hospital,
- Sudden death for no apparent reason.
- Loss of position and reputation in an organization,
- A sudden shift of powers,
- Wrong display of courage,
- Uttering the most disgusting words and later repenting,
- Indulging in backbiting and getting caught,
- Getting into a trap,
- Spoiling a family for someone but eventually getting a kick from that someone too,
- Longing for something that is impossible,
If Ketu is the significator of any of the above traits then, believe me, it is the hardest to get over them.
Ketu can devastate the life totally – Live examples
The Babas who are behind bars, the businessmen who have fled the country, the journalists who exploited their female staff, the ones who have taken the banks for granted and borrowed heavily and more other like these people have activated the Ketu and the misery from it will be endless. If someone dies before the end of the allotted sufferings by this planet, it is believed that those miseries remain as a pending Karma in the future lives of the native and one has to bear the share of miseries allotted.
How to mitigate effects of Ketu
Many think that they have not done nothing wrong in this birth. But these people probably do not take in account the misdeeds done by him/her in the previous lives. They must think about this also & give it back.
There are methods to absolve out of the miseries allotted by this planet. And the best remedy for it is certainly to correct the karma as per the requirement.
Respond to the sixth sense (Ketu), if it tells to stop then one should stop as the negative energy that it would radiate will be extremely impressionable which will be erratic hard to control.
The Final Say to guard yourself !!!
So, it is always better to understand the enigma this planet is to play in one’s chart. And then to respond to it the most appropriate karmic method. Otherwise flirting with it is the most dangerous things one could do with its planets. This theory of Karma Correction holds good not only for this planet but also for any other negativities in the Horoscope.
