"Been there, done that" Ketu-Vrizabha provides the lifetime ease of No Resistance to sensual pleasures, collecting and storage behaviors, wealth acquisition, and beauties of the face, eyes, and, mouth.

Ketu represents surrender, "Islam". Ketu surrenders effortlessly to whatever experience is provided.

Vrishabha indicate values, validity, validation. Depending on the graha and disposition of Ketu's ruler, Vimshottari periods of Ketu-Vrizabha may produce the experience of invalidation. The bhava of Ketu's ruler Zukra can also provide invalidation regarding one's roles in matters of that bhava or the karaka-signification of that bhava.

  • POTUS-04 USA-Constitution 1751-1836 James Madison experienced considerable invalidation in matters concerning the values and valuation of one's children. His adopted son (Dolley Madison's son from her first marriage) was his only child. This boy became an alcoholic, gambler, debtor, and jailbird who eventually bankrupted both of his parents. Ketu's ruler Zukra enjoys uttamsha in bhava-3, and Zukra is a Yogakaraka for Madison's Makara nativity, yet Madison experienced failure in commercial business. Part of Zukra's debility is attributable to Zukra-yuti-Surya combustion being too close to ripu-pathi-6 Surya, but another issue is Zukra's rulership of Ketu-children-5.

  • POTUS-32 Fireside Chats 1882-1945 Franklin D. Roosevelt had every kind of invalidating experience with women and marriage. Like Madison, his Zukra is closely moudhya in bhava-5 which makes him a pleasant addition to political environments, a suave and entertaining communicator, and handsome. Yet his biography confirms significant compromise in matters of trusts and balanced agreements. Zukra-Makara dadgha- ruling Ketu-9 put his paradigm of belief into relationships into a lifelong tailspin.

In Vrishabha, Ketu surrenders to the acquisition of stored values = either treasuries of knowledge or material commodities of exchange.

If the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the accumulative energies (Zukra) Ketu-Vrizabha may perform at high levels of financial well-being and knowledge-acquisition, banking, beauty, memory retrieval, and storage behaviors.

However generally Ketu's apathy leads to a considerable detachment from the acquisitive behaviors.

Shri Ganesha ensures that one is no longer attached to the collecting process, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters. One's ability to gather up collections of value is both unlimited and unimportant.

Ketu-Vrizabha provides many scatter-shot experiences with persons of treasury and frequent encounters with banks of natural resources.

Yet ironically because of the absence of ego-attachment one is unlikely believe that collections of value are important. Access comes and goes -- to knowledge, language, food, beauty, voice, wine, or money. Ah, here it is. Ah, there it goes.

Rich values are not blocked but also not retained. Money especially comes and goes. Ketu-Vrizabha provides little incentive to hold onto wealth.

  • POTUS-04 USA-Constitution 1751-1836 James Madison * Ketu-Vrizabha-5. Dolley's first husband and elder boy had perished in a terrible yellow fever epidemic. Madison adopted the surviving toddler son of his wife Dolley Madison. The adopted boy became an alcoholic and compulsive gambler who was frequently jailed for gambling debt and theft, who mismanaged Madison's properties, and ultimately plunged the family into financial ruin. Nevertheless they supported him until the end (Ketu's lord uttama-Zukra). Madison seemed to put up very little resistance to the boy's decades-long pattern of financial drain upon the family, preferring to allow his estate to dwindle into nothing. Dolley died in acute poverty as a result.

Attitude of been there, done that which can be quite apathetic and detached even when the relative absence of obstacles has eased the process of store-holding .


Ketu in a rashi of Zukra functions similarly to Chandra in the Zukra-ruled Nakshatra :


Marriage

For men, Vrishabha Ketu-yuti-Zukra

*or* Ketu-Vrizabha in bhava-7 may indicate chronic disconnection or abandonment issues regarding the life-partner(s) and marriage contract.

Scattering of the core of trust.

Zukra-yuti-Ketu, descent into sensual indulgence

  • Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst * Zukra-yuti-Ketu was elected to the USA Congress 1905-1909, but defeated for re-election despite his extraordinary treasury and reputation. However the final decades of his life were wasted in superficial Hollywood socializing and a cascade of careless financial losses.


Devaluation. the characteristic activity of Vrishabha = acquisition of values. Ketu = detachment from those values.

Ketu-Vrizabha does not prevent wealth, but Ketu-Vrizabha does prevent ego-attachment to wealth. As a result, wealth tends to come and go, with abrupt incursions of financial well-being into the native 's life and equally abrupt separations from material luxury.

One may have association with extreme luxury at times, and massive poverty too. Neither environment can possess any permanent measure of value for the native .

In Vrishabha, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Zukra-like sensual pleasure and wealth-attracting characteristics.

There is considerable luxury in the native 's environment, but one has a curiously detached response to sensual enjoyment = appreciative but not much acquisitive.

  • Japan-Emperor1901-1989 Showa Hirohito. Despite the dhanayoga of Vriddhipathi-11 Simha-Mangala-2 yuti Chandra, which provided him with a regal income, and having been born into the Divine Perfection of the Chrysanthemum Throne attracting luxurious gifts, Hirohito was nonetheless known for his modesty and disinterest in conspicuous displays of wealth.

Similar to Ketu in bhava-2, but less specific detail. Results depend upon how Professor Zukra functions in the overall nativity.

Naturally Ketu's results are greatly affected by any graha yuti Ketu; Ketu's bhava' incoming drishti to His absorptive and apathetic script; and the character of His Professor Zukra.

  • Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst was an influential - but many would say vicious - industrialist, famous as a labor "strikebreaker" (Zukra-6 labor contracts; Ketu breaker). Hearst had Vrishabha-Ketu-yuti-Zukra in bhava-12. This sweet but detached combination supported the apathy and lack of compassion that permitted the cruelty which expressed via his aggressive Mangala-Arudra-1. Zukra-Ketu also allowed the sources and operations of his financial wealth to remain relatively invisible and brought eccentric bedroom pleasures into his life. His relationships tended to be non-commital and the one marriage that he did avow was quickly dissolved.

  • In the nativity of a husband, any graha yuti Zukra can indicate one's second and subsequent marriages. When the sole graha yuti Zukra is Professor Ketu, and this Zukra-Ketu pair in Zukra's rashi receives no outside-motivation drishti, one may become so apathetic about the second lifepartnership contract that despite sincere affection for the second partner, one does not finalize the marriage. Hearst shared his life for decades with his second partner, a beautiful singer-actress and mother of his youngest child. However the second pair never married and their child was raised by an aunt.


Ketu = "been there, done that" parallel life pull

One is drawn by past-life karma

into the worlds of financial well-being and sensual pleasure,

where one may mingle with bankers, vintners, art collectors, historians, and linguists as one used to do in a previous life;

yet in the current life, the thrill of collecting and accumulating is long gone.

Ketu-Vrizabha seeks to pleasantly disperse the collected wealth, scattering it like particles of dust in a thick dust-cloud

  • Raja Yoga 1863-1902 Swami Vivekananda was surrounded by Euro-American financially privileged devotees and admirers who were more than happy to fund his philosophical mission. However the Swami himself maintained an amused detachment from these leadership titles and funding treasuries, accumulating nothing for his own hoard.


Little can be said with certainty about Ketu without knowing the rashi and bhava of Zukra; plus, any incoming drishti to Ketu must be measured.

One minimal comment is that Ketu-Vrizabha rashi will blunt the sensitivities of Zukra, making the native unsure about pleasure-values in general and in particular there is uncertainty regarding where to establish the limits on sensual indulgence and money-wealth.

One can easily lose oneself in escapist pleasuring behavior including the acquisitive behaviors of accumulating money and objects of value. Yet, upon reflection one may question, what was the value of that acquired item or that sensual experience?

Ketu's signature is disenchantment with the ego-self. In Zukra's sign, Ketu's first choice of route for self-dissolution will be down the path of Zukra's portfolio. If Zukra is strong, then drugs, alcohol, fine fabrics, lovely appearances, delicious foods and scented oils will find this native easily. However, no amount of pleasure will be satisfying. One becomes cantankerous. The body's cravings are never fulfilled; desires only increase, without satisfaction.

One seeks deepest fulfillment through marriage and alliances of love,but that area of life is precisely where one becomes is most disenchanted.

The love behavior may be judged by outsiders as "passive-aggressive" because the native simultaneously wants the deepest pleasures of human companionship, while always feeling unsatisfied and rejecting one pleasure-source after the next. There is a fundamental dissatisfaction with money,no matter how much or how little one has of it.

One with Ketu-Vrizabha either self-scatters through sensual addictions or one develops a very selective sensual filter, allowing the native to pursue only those pleasures which advance specific spiritual goals.

One develops, with age, an increasingly austere aesthetic . Ketu similar to Shani gives better results in upachaya bhava and with age. In Vrishabha, Ketu is never able to fully dissociate from sensual desire.

Permanently unable to significantly connect with partners yet unable to break free of the dependencies which define the union -- think myth of Rahu-Ketu.

Das comments:

"Rahu is in Scorpionis, and Ketu is in Taurus."

"Revengeful, much strife and struggle for living, hardly any achievement worth a name

  • Excited when challenged.

  • Touches extremes resulting in misfortunes.

Hidden motives and energies seldom find an expression.

  • Fortune through a noble partner, though you survive your spouse.

Honor and recognition from the government and learned people.

  • Fair and just."
