is a celestial body which is generally referred
o as a ‘shadow’
planet and is malefic by nature. Ketu has a
tremendous impact on human lives. It is actually
a spiritual planet and an indicator of
enlightenment. Accordingly it is considered a "moksh-karaka",
or a force which can lead to enlightenment and
freedom from the cycle of repeated birth and
death. Physically, it may cause the circulation
to be poor, bad
digestion, skin diseases, anaemia, ulcers,
too much heat within the body and muscular or
nervous system disorders, pains in joints and
nerves. Ketu rules number 7 in Vedic numerology.
It gives wisdom, knowledge, and physic abilities
to its natives. Ketu is neutral in gender,
tamasic in nature, harsh, and disruptive in
character. It is powerfully in night and easily
irritable in nature. It makes their natives
interested in healing
arts , natural healing,
occult science, tantric, healing through herbs,
foods , spices, sound vibrations,
and so on. Natives of ketu are talkative,
revolutionary, and moody; they love discussions,
and debates, and have their own type of logic.
They live in fantasies, are institutive,
imaginative, they love mystery and keep a
mystery environment around them and love to
exaggerate. They are shabby in appearance, not
caring for their outer image. They accept truths
from all religion and create religions of their
own. Ketu rules over old age. Mercury, Venus,
Rahu and Saturn are there friends. Jupiter is
neutral. Sun, moon, mars are their enemies. If
Ketu is favourable it brings a wealth and
prosperity. But if it’s unfavourable, it causes
poor eyesight, worries and anxiety too.
