Where the path of the Earth meets the path of the Sun, in the southern sky, there is Ketu, a mythical name for the Axis Mundi. Also, in the form of his counter-part Rahu, signifies any unexpected lucky event, especially one caused by an accident or a lottery win.

He was openly indicating that there were problems, dissatisfaction and foreign and computer/manipulative languages, as well as possible secrecy and afflictions.

Meaning of Ketu in Astrology

Just like Rahu, Ketu, has also been given the label of an imaginary planet or a node. The constellations of Ashwin, Magha and Mool are governed by him. It has already been mentioned earlier, when discussing Rahu, a rather interesting story took place.

This refers to the relative terms of “north” and “south”, the mythical planetary nodes of the Nakshatra which are called “Rahu” and “Ketu”. In legend, it is believed to be the offspring of a demon.

This particular point of the South Node indicates a recent life as well as a result of one of their prior egoism, and has everything he has learned from the previous life’s experience attached to it.

There is the other side of Ketu: the desire for self-realization and success in learning the intricacies of the hidden and mystical arts.

In the Arian, Rahu and Ketu are most often found to give sudden and unusual results. Both Rahu and Ketu are manifestations of the same demonic entity.

There are 180 degrees between the two situations. A total lunar eclipse occurs when Ketu, the node, and the Sun, and the Moon are located at the same longitude. The Sun and Moon have an unusually contentious relationship with Rahu.

In terms of jobs, professional magicians, clergymen, and physicians are respectively ruled by Saturn and Ketu. All the Rahu is mysterious in a chart. Birth is shown in terms of spiritual influence, along with the karmic node that has mythical ties to it.

The constellation Rahu does not have a sign, rather, all of its stars belong to a sign moving away from the path of Ketu in a particular segment of the sky.

When considered the sign to be Sagittarius, the house of the zodiac sign that indicates a thirst for knowledge. Some scholars believe that Ketu is located in the constellation of Scorpio.

In just the same way, it is physically disabled in Cancer and predisposed to ill health in Virgo. According to astrology, Ketu is considered a powerful in the zodiacal sign of Jupiter.

Because Mercury, Venus, and Rahu make her feel comfortable, Ketu looks to Rahu for the order and justice that he is missing. Jupiter is neither positive nor negative with respect to Ketu.

His mortal enemies are the planet Mars, the Sun, and the Moon. In Hindu astrology, Ketu is famous for spiritual planets. When one devotes oneself to contemplating the celestial bodies, one becomes spiritual.

Furthermore, his other interests show an interest in the areas of magic and the supernatural, particularly the areas of angels and the haunting of those in libraries. Although these individuals are believed to be more powerful than spiritual or able to affect healing, it is nevertheless essential to pursue medical training.

After 7 Ketu has completed his time of meditation, he will return. He is not unlike a diamond, his gemstone is a cat’s eye (Lahsunia). Ketu, when situated well in a horoscope, will be the person of many forms of both luxury and wisdom for someone. If he complains too much, he negatively affects concentration, and brings stress, along with his own ghosts with him.
