power-vacuum

in the areas of Zukra the Hoarder's natural terrain:

  • One's connection to the power-source of historical, collected wealth is somehow severed.

Vasana-Karaka Ketu creates a vacuum in matters of treasuries, family lineage, historical-linguistic knowledge, speech-song, and storage-preservation.

Decapitated Ketu in bhava-2 = apathetic toward accumulation of Capital.

  • Ketu in bhava-2 does not harm wealth contributed by other graha. If Ketu's lord is strong, or the L-11, dharmesha-9 , and vidyapathi-5 are well placed, one may indeed acquire wealth via profession, via marriage, via secret connections of Rahu-8, or other methods. Ketu-2 assures only that the native will feel disinterested toward treasuries.

  • Ketu in bhava-2 does weaken the link to family. Frequently there is disruption within the family lineage, such as mental illness, so that the native leaves the family in some fashion. For example, one may choose an expatriate career or other method of separation (Ketu) from family culture (kutumba).

  • so long as language-karaka Guru is strong, Ketu in bhava-2 does not harm acquisition of languages. However the native places very little importance upon facility in language, and speech may be empty of viable content or even incoherent.

Scattered Ketu's weak magnetic force = disinterest toward actions = collect, obtain, maintain, or retain connection. In particular Ketu exhibits ambivalence toward hoarding of:

  • Stored Natural resources,
  • fields and forests
  • herds and hoards
  • store-holds, historical records, storage, restorations
  • memory
  • treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge; treasure-chests; banks and financial records
  • traditional sources of value
  • skandha (heaps of stuff)

  • Family History; Right Eye; Face and hair; mouth, Songs and Speech

Ketu in bhava-2

Rahu in bhava-8

chidrakaraka Ketu =

  • Ambivalence toward the family lineage history;

    toward face, hair, teeth, mouth and eyes; eating and food; toward language, speech and song; toward meter and verse; toward received historical values. Disregard for voice and song. Scatters focus upon the hoard. Disperses attempts to contain assets and store wealth.

  • apathetic, disengaged with treasuries of valuable goods and conserved knowledge. Yet there are no barriers preventing the banking of gathered collections of stored value. If Ketu's lord is strong, stored accumulations can be materially measurable. Channels the vibration of the bankers, collectors, herders and hoarders without ego-membrane interference.

chalakaraka Rahu =

Ambition to obtain "by whatever means necessary" the privileges accorded to holders of mysterious or confidential empowerments

  • Fascination with environments of secrecy; hidden liaison; craving to be acknowledged as an important figure in times of crisis and transformation;

    a healer and a knower of intimate secrets.

  • One's connection to the power-source of destruction-and-rebirth cycles = amplified and one seeks the power to engage with the forces of sudden, unexpected change.

Gifted speaker or historian who has for oneself only scattered knowledge of one's family history or even a speech impediment.

One who expresses deep cultural values while lacking personal attachment to those values.

Scattering behavior may give an incoherent collection of values.

family history does not stick together properly.

KETU IN Bhava-2 = Ketu in 2nd-from-Chandra


Ketu in bhava-2 * the chidra-karaka (cutter-agent) indicates that one's family of origin is disconnected from reality, perhaps spiritually detached but often mentally disoriented or simply absent. Persons of mentally deranged character, or those of spiritually surrendered nature such as wanderers and mendicants, may play an important role in the family history. The vocabulary of pilgrimage, dispersion, witness-perspective, or abandonment may be a salient feature of the family identity.

Speech

Ketu-2 may speak in a dreamlike or cloudy fashion, in a rather vague representation of one's core values, without much commitment to material enforcement of those beliefs (Ketu).


Ketu in Bhava-2 =

busts-up, nebulizes. scatters the financial wealth storage; disperses the family lineage; eliminates conventional social restrictions on treasuries of stored knowledge stored values, disorients the second marriage, and numbs the mouth to the pleasures of food and drink.

Decapitator Professor Ketu occupies the bhava of Capital * Ketu cuts the head off capital reserves

Often disinterested in conventional treasuries such as banking, food, facial beautification, family lineage, prestige of language (content with default dialect), conventional knowledge, earthly lineages in general (preferring an astral, formless lineage knowledge) accumulations on the material plane


Depending on Ketu's ruler, there may be so much fragmentation and vagueness in the speech that the native's intention is difficult to determine.

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover = ketu-2 ruled by nichha-Zukra-1. During the first, worst years of the Great Depression, Hoover suffered from chronic misrepresentation or bad 'spin' on his commentary promoting self-reliance. He lost the election due to people thinking he was a heartless, detached, elite creep, when indeed he came from humble origins and wanted to help the workers.

Rahu-8 yuti Ketu -2

Attraction-Repulsion * akarshana ** vikarshana *= mysteries - knowledge

Desire-Apathy = other peoples money (8) - one's own hoard (2)

perpetual underlying psychic grief for some ineffable lost connection to family history and lineage values.

Often the genetic lineage is distinctively eccentric, peculiar, or disconnected. If Ketu joins other graha, the kutumbha-bhava-2 can signify a dissolution of integrity in the family line, or in certain members of the line (not necessarily all of them).

  • POTUS-02 partner Letters Abigail Adams had Shani-yuti-Ketu-Meena-2. The Adams Family is famed for its mix of extraordinary legalist leaders (Shani) with miserable suffering of addicts and depressives (Ketu). Two of her adult sons, two of her grandsons, and her uncle all died of alcoholism. This deteriorating, disconnecting family alcoholism was not just an unsavory habit; it was driven by depression (Shani) self-destructive (Ketu) and deadly (2). Her 6th child was stillborn (Kuja in 3rd-from-Chandra = 6th child). Her son POTUS-06 John Quincy Adams was said to have suffered extreme, recurring bouts of depression, and two of his own sons also died in despair - one from alcoholism, and one from depression-driven suicide (Ketu).

Ketu-2 = ambivalent about second-marriage, treasuries, historical-linguistic knowledge, speech-song, storage-preservation, and fleshdeath.

  • Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse had a brief second marriage to a theatrical (Simha) singer. They were unable to connect (Ketu) successfully in the same place at the same time due to her performance schedule and his creative writing and painting. Hesse's third marriage (bhava-4, 9th-from-Chandra) was a long-lasting caretaking arrangement including management of what had become by then a substantial literary estate (4).

Weaknesses in the second marriage. Weakness when manageable presents opportunities for growth.

If additional graha occupy bhava-2, expect more visible activity yet there will remain a perceivable eccentric mismatch of accumulated values with present life behavior.

When Professor Ketu must deliver His instruction in the classroom-2 which is a swabhava of Zukra dedicated to balancing, accumulating, materializing, form-harmonizing, then the environment may reflect eccentricity, off-orbit, inequality, off-balance in matters of food, family, finance (2).

Long-term material accumulation hoarding behavior is inhibited by doubt re: ability to connect to: Wealth, family property, food, wines, museums, hoarded goods, history of one's people, blood and values lineages, all varieties of values, historic traditions, costume, song, stories, tales, banking, conservation, ethics, aesthetics, loss of siblings, loss of administrative routine, loss of habitual small group communications

Apathetic or detached from accumulations and features: hair, teeth, mouth, in the body; moveable wealth, history, values in the family, including their herds of animals;

  • Israel-PM 1898-1978 Golda Meir took very little interest in beautifying her appearance. She wore no cosmetics, no hair style, simple basic western women's clothing, and sported a grandmotherly figure. Her homeliness (Ketu-2) was endearing to many due to its peculiarity not its beauty.

little interest in drama, spoken poetry, or song

Regardless of how one is really handling the world of home and country, the native can passively reflect the historic narrative values image of the psychic projections of the collective unconscious.

"No barriers " Ketu connects the native to the experiences of His house through direct intuition. No analysis, no cultural filters. In bhava-2, the experience is acquisition of financial wealth and ancient knowledge, including historic tales and languages.

Karaka for "falling into the hoard".

Depending on the strength of Ketu's lord, one may accidentally 'fall into' great collections of financial wealth , but such accumulated luxury has little attraction for the native .

One may have a neutral disregard for sensual pleasures, indulging or not, with no limits and no special concern for public opinion, on an erratic basis.

Detached from the family values-history-language lineage.

Disregard (Ketu) for the consequences of speech-acts. May be outspoken

  • Second Sex 1908-1986 Simone de Beauvoir + Budha-yuti-Surya. She was an outspoken critic of social-economic prejudice against women, spoke openly of alternative sexual behaviors, remained in a lifelong unmarried partnership despite her upbringing in a stiffly bourgeois environment.

May face difficulties in saving money since at a fundamental psychological level one simply does not believe that collecting things is important.

  • Russ 1870-1924 Proletarian Revolution Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin acted to nationalized all money and property in Russia after the 1917 Bolshevik October Revolution. He felt no attachment to financial well-being and in fact, with Ketu's Professor Shani in 12th-from-Ketu in a nishturabashi yoga, felt an emotional compunction to dissolve hoards via government (Shani) laws.

Speech may sound apathetic, or it may function as a signal of surrender

Displaced pleasure sensations due to death or rejection of the historic values lineage.

Dispersion, scattering of sensual indulgence.

Visual pleasures pulverized; inattention to the field of vision, especially right eye.

Disengaged from historic lineage values of one's people; derives little pleasure from collections and treasuries.

Aware of the dictum that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the gates of heaven. Not an accumulator as a rule.

Marginalized by the financial establishment.

Considered highly eccentric, odd, or even (+ Shani) ostracized by the class of historically monied families.

Ketu in 2 = Long-term material success is inhibited by disregard toward or inability to significantly connect with:

  • family history, traditional weighting of values, language and knowledge-base of one's people

Dissatisfaction, ambivalence and uncertainty regarding the privilege to express accrued historical values. Depending on Ketu's lord, the native may have language or artistic skills, but one feels detached from their value.

Scattering of validation. W ealth and knowledge on the one hand no-barriers to acquire it but on the other hand, material accumulations of any sort have limited significance to the native's own value hoard.

family history seem distant and unconnected to one's essential self. One wanders from the family lineage into a peculiar line of work or unprecedented lifestyle.

KETU IN bhava-2 governs family/relatives, treasury acrrual, speech, food, and values

Similar effects will be felt when Ketu occupies 2nd-from-Chandra


Ketu in bhava-2 longs for strong values and deep family bonds, but cannot sustain it

(gives speech, wealth and family bonds if Ketu's lord is strong, but the native may feel unconnected to these assets)

Psychological expectation of abandonment and rejection by family history, bankers, store-keepers, collectors, The treasury y, the learned, the beautiful (Ketu = abandonment, chidrakaraka)

  • Tends to surrender or give away one's accumulated wealth of material goods and lineage knowledge.

  • The family history and The second life-partner (if any) = Ketu-ish, peculiar, detached, dissociated, eccentric, directionless, odd.

  • Feels that material and intellectual wealth is a mirage .

  • Disconnected or peculiar speech, odd values, detachment from money and family traditions.

May give a necessary separation from the second spouse or inability to remarry after widowhood or divorce.

Respectful of the family lineage but not bound to it. A highly liberated position, often very creative in the expression of voice and face, use of language, knowledge of history.

voice and face, language

Vimshottari period of Ketu

During Ketu bhukti of any mahadasha and acutely during the Ketu-Ketu swabhukti, one born with Ketu in yuvati bhava may have a hopeless feeling that one's ability to maintain family history, bank accounts, food and drink, sensual pleasures, knowledge of languages and history, and second marriage (2) are slipping away for reasons that seem out of one's personal control .

This feeling of being a distant observer or powerless bystander toward dhana-bhava conditions in one's own life may be even more profound when either Chandra or the radical lagna occupy a Nakshatra of Ketuva = Azwini, Magha, or Mula.

Remarriage for Ketu in bhava-2

In many lifetimes, remarriage never becomes necessary, and there is no need for prediction on the topic.

However Ketu resident in bhava-2 suggests a scattering of the focus in matters of the second marriage Should the L-2 also be weak, Ketu in bhava-2 likely indicates a deficiency of willpower to manifest the second ceremonial marriage.

However should remarriage become a pressing question, for example when strong graha occupy the 2-8 navamsha axis, in general it can be predicted that when Ketu occupies bhava-2, the circumstances of ceremonial remarriage are detached via a broadly cosmic worldview; disconnected from ego-attachment, apathetic toward the emotions of others, or socially eccentric. One may not have the patience for a big second wedding.

One may be prone to abandon (Ketu) the conventional marriage protocols, and simply live in a convenient mutual partnership without the sanction of ceremony.

Or, if there are no strong pointers toward a second union, one may have very little motivation or direct interest in a remarriage and yet having little control over its circumstances if the lord of 2 is strong, remarriage or a second union may be arranged or enforced by those with a stronger willpower.

Attempts to remarry may be abandoned as felt to be impractical or too much trouble. Commitment to the second lifepartnership as a social vow is less although the "calendar time" measurement of the authenticity of partnership may not be lacking. Eccentric second spouse who is not connected to one's primary social identity or to one's professional or intellectual work.

Rahu in 2nd-from-7th suggests that the first spouse retains a self-promoting interest in the the financial accounts of the native .

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt = similar to industrialist Hearst, second union although substantiated socially by "calendar time" is not legal. Pitt's nativity features four graha in dhana-bhava along with Ketu, therefore the second-union situation is highly complex. As with Brad Pitt and Hearst, the first wife typically retains detailed a business-financial involvement with the native .

Note: similar results for 2nd wife = Zukra-yuti-Ketu (where Ketu represents the second wife)

  • France-Emperor 1769-1821 Napoleon Bonaparte the second marriage ended by abandonment (Ketu) after less than two years.

Also similar apathy, eccentricity, and emotional disconnection in the second lifepartnership = Ketu in 2nd from Chandra.

Deeper spiritual values such as neutrality, non-discrimination, and non-judging can enter once the more superficial values are blocked.

Second marriage may be non-traditional , or may take the shape of a service path not a human relationship.

  • Second spouse if any May have strong intuition and a psychic insight into the historical past.

  • Also should there be fortunate drishti into bhava-2, the native = blessed with a decentralized (scattered) but vast viewpoint which may reveal extraordinary treasures that are normally unrecognized

Psychic (non-rational) access to knowledge of history, languages, cultural traditions of art and song, and also a surprising ability to have treasuries of financial wealth simply because one brooks no resistance to money.

Often found in the nativities of those who accidentally acquire great wealth.

Ambivalent relationship to one's family history . Difficult to consciously access and express their lineage values.

Has trouble knowing what to do, what to say, what to buy/choose, how to behave, what is expected -- because they have not successfully integrated cultural values-expectations into their ego-membrane structure. the native speaks better when given a script to follow.

May reject spoken truth, claiming that important things can't be known or expressed properly with language, and ignoring the value of family lineage and history.

May acquire wealth yet have no firm idea on how to use enjoy, invest , or spend it.

Often wastes it due to disconnection from the social habit of resource conservation.

General psychological issues re: inadequate family life and values development.

Eccentric facial appearance.

Peculiarities or scattered appearance of the face, hair, eyes, teeth, mouth, lips and voice.

Detached from values expressed through facial features, hair, teeth, and eyes. Neglects the upkeep of overall appearance.

  • Men grow peculiar beards and eccentric hairstyles if not managed by their wives or handlers.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt favors a scraggly look. However his Ketu= yuti Surya, Budha, Mangala, Chandra

  • When POTUS-10 John Tyler attended public functions, people were often surprised to discover that his careworn face masked a fairly young man. At his second wedding it was remarked that his bride was 24, and Tyler 54 "but looked 10 years older".

Das commentary of Ketu in bhava-2

  • government fines = 2nd = 6th-from-10th

"... May make you conceited, or feel depraved.

There is something in your feelings which makes you careful to watch out for yourself.

There are conditions which cause you to worry about finances in general.

  • The threat of government fines looms at times.

You'll have a hard time speaking before many people, or they won't accept or understand what you're trying to say.

  • Those who support you may feel that they've gotten themselves on the wrong side of the fence.

You may therefore adopt a sweet tone of voice by and by, having learned that it provokes less trouble from others,

  • and this carefulness and control over your speech could lead to success."
