Ketu in 5th House

Ketu in 5th House

Chiefly famous as 'Shadowy planet' in astrology, Ketu in the fifth house is very much affected by a giant planet in the solar system, Jupiter, and various other aspects, thereby resulting in adverse and benefic impacts on the native's life. It is also the focal point from where malevolence transforms into righteousness. It also stands for focused wisdom, liberation, intelligence, transcendence, fantasy, et cetera. When it is a matter of Ketu in the fifth house, it signifies many things—pleasures, love relationship, children, and many other related things. The natives have a philosophical bent of mind and are interested in learning new languages. Various areas affected due to the presence of Ketu in the fifth house are spirituality, children, relationship and compatibility, and emotional issues.

Positive Effects of Ketu in the Fifth House 

  • When Ketu is positioned in fifth house, the natives may be well-versed in many foreign languages. Simultaneously, Ketu's placement in this particular house increases their inclination towards matters concerning spirituality and religion. They may also get involved in research work.

  • Moreover, the presence of Ketu in the 5th house makes the natives curious in occult sciences and black magic also. The chances of getting gains from speculation are also rife. 

Negative Effects of Ketu in the Fifth House 

  • The placement of Ketu in the fifth house is not considered good as it may make the natives immoral. It may also make them excessively emotional. The natives may have such an experience that can disrupt their normal flow of life. If Ketu does not have any benefic effect, such a feeling may become so crystallized that the natives may start secluding themselves from friends and family. They pretend to show love towards others, but they do not have any love and inner affection towards others in reality. They may also come closer to anyone to serve their purpose.

  • The presence of Ketu in the fifth house can make the natives impatient, timid, jealous, proud, and crafty. The natives may become spiritual during the last few years of later years of life. They may also face problems related to the stomach and the digestive system. There are also chances of receiving injuries due to a fall from long heights and the risk of drowning in the natural water bodies or the pool if Ketu has any connection with the water bodies.

  • The natives of Ketu in the 5th house may suffer from emotional dissatisfaction, especially when this planet is under affliction. This placement of Ketu is also unfavourable for the kids of the natives. They may come across obstacles in their lives. They may also face problems regarding the begetting of the children and, in some cases, may face miscarriage or abortion.

  • Some couples' lives, one of whom has Ketu in the 5th house, may revolve around conceiving children. These couples' medical endeavours towards begetting children may not cause their inability to get children. Moreover, they may keep trying and striving everything, from traditional to allopathic methods, but their endeavours may prove unsuccessful. Some of them may get success after prolonged efforts, whereas others may not be that lucky.

Remedies to Pacify the Maleic Effects of Ketu in the Fifth House

  • Various kinds of doshas crop up during bad transit or Ketu Mahadasha. But the natives should worry or fret about them. Lord Ganesha gives respite to the natives if they start worshipping Him at home or temple. 

  • The natives should recite Ketu Strotram, Ganesha Dwadasanama Stotra, Shiva Panchakshari Stotra, and Ganesh Chalisa for Ketu Graha's pacification and making this planet positive.  

  • They should perform Japa of the mantra "Om Shram Shreem Shroum Sah Ketave Namah" 17000 times with Rudraksha Mala for forty days. 

  • They should donate black mustard seeds or Kulthi dal on Thursday. This activity will be a very powerful remedy for Ketu, positioned in various houses of the natives' horoscope.
