Nota Bene:

before declaring any results for Chandra-yuti-Ketu, look for compensating strengths via other rhythmic, routinized, comfort-seeking, psycho-emotional indicators:

  • ruler of Chandra's nakshatra

  • ruler of Chandra's rashi

  • Chandra's bhava of residence and its ruler

  • role of Karkata-rashi within the nativity

  • characteristics of the bandesha (ruler of bhava-4)

  • additional graha yuti Ketu

Once the compensating strengths have been assessed, expect to find Ketu's influence (in varying amounts) within the typical Chandra-related fields of behavior

  • generally, unconstrained (Ketu) by emotional perceptions such as empathy, sympathy
  • emotionally unavailable
  • indifferent to the mother and her needs
  • potential for a maternal-abandonment narrative
  • generally, unaffected by agents of customary routines, security, and boundary-defense, such as schoolteachers, parents, border-guards, police, property patrols
  • dissolved boundaries may result in unconstrained emotionally habitual, self-comforting behaviors
  • peculiar rhythms and routines
  • apathetic, dispassionate, observing, witness toward matters of security, ethnic and family culture (
  • emotional disorientation
  • potential for major or minor expressions of attachment-disorder
  • potentially dysmorphic

Chandra + chidrakaraka (beheader) Ketu = one may feel (Chandra) segregated, abandoned, sequestered, or "cut off" from the empathetic, sympathetic, intuitive emotions. One may enjoy a Zen-style detachment from the feelings of others:

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts promoted emotional neutrality and disregard for constraining customary behaviors

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem represented a generation of women who would normally have become mothers (Chandra) who eschewed the customary constraints of motherhood.

  • Methodism 1703-1791 John Wesley late in life married a widow with four children and moved into her home, but displayed a lack of parental care for the vulnerable little ones. Despite the social danger of abandoning her co-parent, the children's mother abandoned the home. Wesley continued wandering (Ketu).

Mother-figure may be scattered, apathetic, incoherent, or disoriented.

potential for a maternal-abandonment narrative, which can manifest as physical absence of the caretaker-figure. More often it is a subtler form of abandonment signified by emotional unavailability, maternal disconnection or disorientation, or various expressions of attachment-disorder.

Often the mom is detached or distracted by matters of Chandra's bhava.

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem (9) reported that her mother suffered from mental illness which worsened after divorce (Ketu)

Most emotional experience seems irrelevant. One perhaps lacks emotional sensitivity but one is also largely free of disabling emotional drama.

  • apathy = "Emotional Teflon"

  • Chandra = deeply caring, protective, parental, and sheltering

  • Ketu = apathetic, disregarding, disassociated, and scattered.

  • Chandra roots in the ground

  • Ketu blows in the wind.

Chandra + chidrakaraka-Ketu seeks to surrender to the void (Ketu)

the emotional identity (Chandra) tends to disperse.

dissolved boundaries may result in unconstrained emotionally habitual, self-comforting behaviors

Characteristics of Ketu's nakshatra may reveal the no-off-switch area.

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Donald Trump is famed for his apparently unlimited indulgence in Twitter messaging in the late hours of the night. His Chandra occupies prophetic, evangelical Budha-ruled Jyeztha-nichha in bhava-5 = 3rd-from-3rd. Budha's influence upon his comfort-seeking behaviors suggests that he feels unconcerned (Chandra) with constraints or consequences following his routine habit of sending brief (Budha) emotionally-reactive (Vrischika-Chandra) missives to bolster his ego (Surya-yuti-Rahu-uttama in 7th-from-Chandra). Chandra-Vrizchika * nichha often feels under attack (Kuja) and Mr. Trump's Chandra-Ketu receives an exacerbating drishti of a verbally aggressive Mangala-Simha-2, suggesting that his comfort-seeking behaviors consist mainly of pre-emptive verbal strikes against his ego-detractors.

Graha Pakvata * Delayed Planetary maturity

Chandra normally matures at age 24, while Rahu and Ketu mature at age 48.

When Somana-yuti-Rahu or Somana-yuti-Ketu, Chandra's maturity is delayed, and Chandra cannot mature until age 48.

One effect of the delayed maturity is that one may remain emotionally distanced and unable to connect to the mother, and disregarding of the parents in general, until after age 48.

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem * Chandra-Ketu-9. Her mother, suffering a disorienting mental-emotional illness, was institutionalized for several years. Ms. Steinem recounts that until her own 50's, her mother's life did not seem relevant to her own and their connection was not easily understood.

Depending on the bhava of residence, one may feel socially stable in character but scattered (Ketu) in parental (Chandra) commitments and easily manipulated by Others more motivated to achieve a higher station in life (Rahu-7th-from).

Often the mother suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life and continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the mother-child relationship. Both Ketu and Chandra are very impressionable; therefore any incoming drishti may alter the severity of the abandonment fears.

  • UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer * her mother abandoned the family when Diana was young, and the mother's relatives expressed animosity.

The abandonment scenario would not necessarily have been personal and it need not have been real. For example, the may have been raised in a climate of ongoing narrative about losing the house, losing the farm, or various threats and fears which need never have materialized. There is enough PTSD effect even from the constant fear of irretrievable loss and the "despair of increasing vulnerability" to generate the abandonment effect. Characteristics include intense clinging interspersed with intense rejection.

Parenting (Chandra)

As parents, males follow a comfortable and familiar prototype from their own childhood home. Often unconsciously (Ketu) the male may duplicate the modeling earlier received from his own distant but functional parents.

Partnerships = Rahu in 7th

However the mate represented via Rahu in 7th from Chandra-yuti-Ketu may have exaggerated qualities of adventurousness and passionate ambitions. The partner tends to take expedient risks in matters of Rahu's bhava.

Chandra-Ketu yoga produces relationships characterized by Rahu in bhava-7 including a partnership pattern of coupling with higher-energy, more flamboyant spouses who bring excitement into Chandra-Ketu's rather tame emotional life.

Depending again very much on the rashi + bhava owned and occupied + incoming drishti, the overall pattern of parenting and sheltering behaviors = apprehended as a job in which one is largely disinterested. Yet because parenting provides some measure of protective security (Chandra) one performs the task with reasonable efficiency.

These natives are not always beholden to the social mandate to secure their partnerships via the vow of marriage promise. One may also (depending on graha involved) enjoy numerous partnerships with flamboyant or highly expeditious partners.

Disengaged within interpersonal relationships. The Rahu-Other tends to be the dominant partner who makes most of the choices.

By Rashi

Chandra-yuti-Ketu Karkata tends to be emotionally sensitive but withdrawn . This is a combination for mental and emotional detachment, but potentially also a psychic sensitivity that allows communication with elemental nature spirits of the waters (lakes, streams, rivers, oceans, rain) in a healing way. Meditation practice here makes the difference. If in a structured and supervised practice, the super-sensitive and easily invaded native can serve his community as a vital link to the spirit world.

Emotionally scattered.

Abandoning Ketu with soothing Chandra tends to avoid the most demanding styles of personal emotional engagement. Cool calm but not collected. Emotionally present but disengaged and disinterested; holds amorphous, cloudlike presence. Disregard for the consequences of one's own behavior.

May lack emotional accountability. Chandra-yuti-Ketu is often associated with a lack of empathy.

  • During the 2012 USA presidential elections, Massachusetts-Gov 1947- Mitt Romney lost a large swatch of voter support after saying deprecating and disrespectful things about poor people. Chandra + Guru-yuti-Ketu expands the scope of apathy or emotional disconnection.

  • During the 2016 election cycle, POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Donald Trump pronounced similar insensitive remarks, blaming the marginalized classes for the nation's economic woes.

  • The vicious zero-empathy accusations Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler are legendary. Chandra + Guru-yuti-Ketu expands the scope of apathy.

  • Methodism 1703-1791 John Wesley was famed for his impassioned sermons (Surya-Rahu-Mithunaya-10) but also for inconsistency and apathy toward the needs of his family (Chandra).

One element which is typically missing from the emotional repertoire is any pronounced emotional need to draw security from an outside source, such as a partner. The native is emotionally dispersed, somewhat ungrounded via the typical roots through family and place of settlement, and often clairsentient.

Generally a tame and harmless personality, unless the passive combination of Chandra-yuti-Ketu is dominated by another graha.

  • Example of rare evil outcome: Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler = Vriddhipathi-11 Chandra-yuti-Ketu + L-4+yuvatipathi-7 Guru

  • Venezuela-Pres 1954-2013 Hugo R. Chavez + Guru-yuti-Budha = Chandra randhresha-8 brings a patriotic, revolutionary emotional urge; randhresha-8 Chandra-yuti-Ketu may be ultimately self-destructive (premature natural death)

May try to ground oneself through the family, the folkways, the land and its history in the life cycle of a people (Chandra) or patriotic (Chandra) grasping at meaning via national identity. Ultimately these stage-props will fail to stabilize the native within either a family home or within a place.

However, if Chandra's ruler or the bandhesha-4 = strong, one may indeed find a place via the agency of those represented by the graha which rules Chandra or lord of bhava-4. As a general rule, this native depends on others to provide context for the meaning of one's life. Tendency to remain emotionally disconnected from the mother, the childhood home, and the place of birth, even while one can be physically presented and walking through the motions of folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms and social expectations.

Only a direct grounding through the mists of the universe to the absolute cosmic center will have any significant grounding effect.

Ketu = unglued, unstuck, incoherent

The emotional identity is evasive, dispersed, slips through one's grasp. In the worst cases, one may become emotionally incoherent.

Numbed to the reality (Ketu) of one's own emotional behavior (Chandra) and may quite ingenuously assert that there is no such thing as emotional reality. 'Every man for himself" is the rallying cry of this yoga.

Chandra is highly impressionable whereas Ketu is not coherent enough to receive an impression. Therefore the native operates emotionally within a Ketu-ized mindset. In this view, one is an independent agent making unstructured laissez-faire movements (Ketu) which have no consequences (Ketu)

Often one appears to be a master of calm objectivity, who does what one feels to be 'necessary under the circumstances' without awareness of consequences.

One's social performance may be mystically charismatic but at the same time there is consistent disregard for social protocol and public behavior standards. One is a free spirit in positive contexts, but just as likely to accept criminal suggestions in negative contexts.

Emotional permeability . If there is to be an outcome of emotional integrity or accountability for the effects of one's parental, affectionate, protective, or patriotic actions -- some other graha, not Chandra, must provide it.

Chandra-Ketu yoga is generally uncomfortable for matters of emotional stability and parenting, but may give excellent results for the practicing mystic.

Generally rather weak emotional boundaries, vulnerable to the psychic projections of others.

Exception: if other more materially focused, grounded graha join the Chandra-Ketu pair

in Ripu-bhava : divorce and substance disorders, financial insufficiency, possibility of prostitution or criminal mischief due to the permeable aura and suggestibility to directions from malicious inferiors

  • UK Duchess 1982- Sarah Ferguson became"unglued"after her divorce and descent into bankruptcy, acting with a Ketuized disregard for consequences

Psychological detachment from the birth-root culture , a neutral or apathetic awareness of the feelings of others, and disconnection from a pleasant but disengaged mother.

  • challenge to form lasting emotional bonds, due originally to the mother's attachment disorder

  • Chandra+Ketu creates lifelong emotional distance in relationships, due to the parents' character.

The parents, particularly the mother, often have some type of mental-emotional incapacity such as their own childhood trauma, drug/alcohol issues, depression, or frequent unexplained absences from the home (physical or emotional absence) which cause the native to feel abandoned.

Result = less a lack of trust than a deep, spiritual resignation to the fact that human love and nurturing is somewhat unreliable. Thus this yoga is highly benevolent

for meditation and spiritual practices that focus on detachment.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu may have sacrificial tendencies; one is quickly drained emotionally. May attract predatory or deeply needy partners. Chandra + Ketu may sacrifice one's own well-being in the scattered fruitless attempt to protect or emotionally rescue these partners.

  • Developed bulimia as a body-dysmorphic response to a partnership that required perfect public performance (Rahu) but was internally incoherent, exacerbating the abandonment conditions of youth

If Soma is uttama-swakshetra or well supported by other graha, this yoga bodes well for late-life spiritual practice , or spiritual development through bhakti (emotion) during Ketu Mahadasha.

Puja to Shri Ketu * Ganapati * will be calming and grounding.

Marriage for Chandra-yuti-Ketu

Regardless of the bhava in which Chandra resides, the partner with Chandra-yuti-Ketu may feature limited emotional responsiveness and a distant disengagement. The Chandra-yuti-Ketu native may be commitment-phobic due to an underlying awareness of the eventual dispersal (Ketu) of all emotional (Chandra) connections.

The Chandra-yuti-Ketu native is often found in marriage or long-term partnership with mates who are fascinating, risk-loving, and expedient agents. The Chandra-yuti-Ketu native may indeed provide their Rahu mate with a convenient platform for accelerated personal achievement.

Significant resistance to making emotional commitments; and should the commitment be undertaken, one may experience a persistent apathy and dissatisfaction in the relationship with the female.

  • Existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre refused to marry his partner, the philosopher-writer Second Sex 1908-1986 Simone de Beauvoir . While de Beauvoir publically proclaimed their liberated relationship, in her private diaries she expressed a deep sadness that Sartre had devalued their union. She recorded her perception that while he respected her ideas, he disrespected her gender, her intuition, and her feelings.

For one in the husband role, if Chandra occupies a Nakshatra of Zukra the characteristics of Ketu's ruler Zukra may describe the nature of the emotional detachment from the wife. ('Wife' can apply to the person who is the dominant pleasure-provider and sensual nurturer in any gender configuration any sexual union.) * Chandra-Bharani, Chandra-Purvaphalguni, Chandra-Purvazadha

Chandra-yuti-Ketu native

life-mate characteristics

according to the bhava of Chandra

In addition to the life-mate's qualities that can be assessed from the 7th-from-Chandra, when Chandra-yuti-Ketu the life-mate's qualities assume the mantle of passionate, ambitious Rahu which signals a polarized marriage.

The Rahu life-mate tends to have the stronger personality and greater urge for material-social achievement, which is contextualized by the bhava. Meanwhile the bhava occupied by the Chandra-yuti-Ketu pair causes Chandra's influence to wane in an apathetic environment. The native is not lacking interest in the affairs of that bhava but the environment is often disconnected or disregarding of the native's needs.

Misty Winter Morning, Taj Mahal, Agra Bharat

Chandra-Ketu pair is "absorbent"and very much influenced by

  • any other yuti graha

  • any incoming drishti

  • lord of the rashi

The description below must be adjusted to accommodate Chandra's absorptive relationship to other graha.

Dispersal of empathy caused by fundamental (Chandra) disengagement (Ketu) from emotional attachment in the present lifetime.

Caveat: Chandra is exceptionally impressionable. Naturally, the presence of additional graha in the same bhava with the Chandra-Ketu can change this description significantly.

One may feel that the parents, particularly the mother, are withdrawn or unresponsive. As an adult, one may develop an eccentric style of parenting which permits considerable absence, either physical or emotional.

However the psychic gateway to parents and caregivers, particular to the mother, has no barriers. Thus the mother may have a profoundly influential effect upon the child without the child realizing consciously the origin or content of the instructions from the parent.

Typically the Chandra-Ketu native believes oneself to be an independent agent controlled by no one and nothing.

One self-identifies as being an emotionally neutral, non-reactive, independent personality.

Nothing could be farther from the truth. One is indeed emotionally influenced by the parent figures but the site of engagement is deeply subconscious.

Free of bondage to emotional moods and melodrama. Emotionally detached; may"wander away" from parenting and caretaking responsibilities.

Typical early-life experiences may include a mother who withdraws from overwhelming caretaking duties, a mother suffering from depression or disengagement from life, a mother distracted by professional or other non-child-nourishing duties, or a mother whose primary allegiance is to her spouse rather than to her child. This last situation is most common when the father is a vibrant personality (Rahu in 7th from Chandra) and the mother is so drained in the process of nourishing the Rahu-father that there is little energy remaining to resource the children.

If intensified by additional drishti from Shani, may express psychological attachment disorder.

Feelings are scattered into a dust cloud.

  • Emotional apathy.
  • Not antipathy. Just apathy.

Chandra's natural need to bond with others may have been completely pulverized.

Ambivalence toward Chandra matters such as parents, homeland, foundational education, emotional security, daily routine, nourishment, safety, shelter, transportation, defense of the nation, patriotism.

Frequently absent from the home (Chandra). May naturally take to the sea when seeking respite from life's pressures - e.g., sailing, kayaking, fishing. Feels comfortable (Chandra) in wind-cloud-water mixes, such as on a windy, cloudy sea.

Both positive feelings and negative feelings are scattered to the winds.

If Chandra feels competitive (rashi of Surya, Mangala, lagnesha, activating drishti) there may be short-term advantage in life due to lack of problems with grief or guilt.

Life is perceived as inherently uncertain. Yet lacking the natural instinct to prevent harm to others, one may feel liberated to act more freely, particularly gaining ability to have long absences from home, free from the twin burdens of pain and regret. Native is not harmed but one's children may feel that this parent was distant.

The ability to harm others is opened due to lack of concern for personal safety and lack of emotional bondage. Caution is warranted.

However the positive emotions of love and compassion are also lacking.

The ensuing moral vacuum may create a profound insensitivity to the emotions of others. Ketu-Chandra may be unable to acknowledge the plight of those less fortunate than oneself. If other planets suggest evil, harmfully selfish and even dehumanizing actions may feel acceptable

if the natural incoming drishti of Rahu gets compounded by drishti from other sources of materialistic power - particularly from Shani.

  • sadistic genocidal murder Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler 's Chandra-yuti-Ketu yoga is greatly expanded via yuti Guru

  • VPOTUS In My Time 1941- Dick Cheney was known for his utter lack of compassion, in principle and in action, for prisoners and the poor.

In particular, a lack of empathy toward mothers and caretakers, toward the weak or vulnerable, toward one's own parents, and toward the emotional component of parenting roles.

Mother is less emotionally available. The native is disengaged from sheltering, caretaking, and parenting tasks; largely out of touch with children's feelings although the external, material duties may be well accomplish providing that Bandusthana and the bandu-pathi are well disposed..

Ego-connection to parents = much reduced. Native = free agent, unencumbered by the needs of others.

Males are disinclined to marry despite producing children, although a 'common law' (Chandra, folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms) marriage is frequently developed. Females have mother (Soma) trouble; specifically, abandonment (Ketu).

Both male and female get into rather peculiar relationships with maternal-type women, due to a lack of emotional clarity regarding one's own intentions.

Sincere but somewhat unreliable due to tendency to disconnect; prone to emotional escape tactics to avoid feeling overwhelmed. A sorrowful individual; far too sensitive to the feelings of others and so one numbs those feelings; in despair of ever finding one's own emotional balance; never truly comfortable in this life but unable to define what is missing.

Tries to be a brave protector. Yet, emotionally numbed, the courageous behavior is modeled on outsiders, not rooted in tangible personal experience of satisfaction in protective and defensive (Chandra) roles.

Particularly in bhava-12, Chandra-yuti-Ketu may produce a gifted psychic who can flourish in a protected (Chandra) environment. Success in psychic endeavors may depend upon the character of the mother (Chandra) who is often absent emotionally.

Excellent for spiritual practice of dissolution and disappearance of boundaries. Philosophical nihilism and meditative traditions like jnana yoga or Zen * Chan may be suitable.

Emotional perceptions may be scattered, disconnected or incoherent. May experience some apathy toward the cultural expectations that all persons should be significantly involved with human feelings.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu is not significantly emotionally aware or involved in human life. Yet scattering Ketu's discouragement of involvement does not per se indicate social disability. In fact, this yoga may increase intellectual clarity by removing emotional distraction.

Nevertheless the native is advised to double-check the emotional condition of others before acting since one is not naturally empathetic.


The mother tends to present as emotionally detached, with perhaps less interest in the native, although she may well accomplish the social-material requirements of her parenting, there is a weak or gone channel of emotional recognition between mother and native.

Mother may feel that she needs to invest all of her energy in trying to connect with her ambitious mate (Rahu drishti to Ketu-Chandra) and as a consequence, mother's energy reserves available for non-mate nurturing (such as caring for her children) remain rather low.

Her attention wanders (Ketu) from everything except her mate. Usually as a carry-through, Mother has little interest in helping to raise the grandchildren.

Devaluation or Disregard (Ketu) toward the Mother. Overall e motional detachment from women (Chandra, mother-figures).

Psychically absorptive breasts and chest, front and back torso, lymph system,"immune" system.

Dissatisfied and doubting of one's mother and women overall. Uneasiness or detachment from the parents and a subtle apathy shown by the parents toward this child, in the childhood home.

Unable to fully connect with the mother. Also unable to fully disconnect from the mother. Even after death or a public declaration of separation, one longs for fulfillment of the maternal presence.

Resignation to a separative, psychologically distanced relationship with the mother , and with all women who hold a supporting or nurturing role. A deep and ineffable, sense of loss for the mother, who seems to have been taken away by circumstances beyond one's control. A longing for The imagined satisfaction of completed union with the unconditionally loving mother.

Confused emotions and strong survival instinct programmed to disconnect from emotional intimacy.

Poor boundaries with an unpredictable Mother: she is both distant and invasive by turns.

Inability to register a sense of personal certainty regarding the portfolio of Chandra: emotional intelligence, maternal-parental instincts, intuition, family, parents, relationship to earth and water. The native may engage in family life indefinitely, driven by a need to belong, without ever achieving a clear public parental identity or a clear personal sense of emotional connection in relationships.

Childhood conditions include an emotionally detached mother. Does not indicate a lack of basic caretaking, but rather, the mother's priorities are elsewhere.

  • Celebrity 1960-1999 publisher JFK-Jr 's mom was famously dominated by her financially privileged, philandering husbands during his upbringing.

Typically, the mother chooses to be more emotionally available toward her partner; or her partner is so extremely demanding so that no matter how she might rationalize her behavior, the fact is that she has relatively little nurturing energy left for her child.

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler 's mother was consumed and exhausted by a marriage to her abusive maternal uncle. Note Hitler's Mula Chandra "Alakshmi" in a nakshatra of Ketu, suggesting emotional disengagement. With the drishti of permissive Guru upon his Surya-Zukra-Mangala-Budha sexual complex in bhava-8, also a disregard for others in an abundance of illicit relationships. Sadly this complex produced a collosal lack of empathy which empowered the ability to dehumanize people on a very large Guru-expanded scale.
