Many Scatterings * Much Dispersion * Excess Vata

Brihaspati is a multiplier, producing many and much.

Ketu represents dispersing agents and desaparacidos who lose their apparent form and vanish into other realities. They are unsettling ghosts who lack permanent integrity. They disregard all formalities.

Ketu-figures are particulate in nature, assuming no coherent form. They swirl like a dusty wind. They flap in the air like a tattered flag, signaling abandonment and impermanence. They are headless, following no direction.

Dispersion of Children, Doctrine, and Preachers

Psychically absorptive sciatic nerve and reproductive complex.

Dissatisfied and doubting of one's children (esp. the first child). ambivalent about birthing and raising children. Cannot sincerely confirm the value of children in one's life. Distrust of priests, professors, religion and prayer.

  • The eldest child of Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono was kidnapped during a custody battle. The child was successfully hidden from her mother until a first reunion when the child was 31. Ono's second child was stillborn.

Esoteric Spiritual Guidance

Disconnection from the material form of the spiritual teacher, yet the esoteric teachings may be successfully apprehended in non-material form. Guru-figure has eccentric patterns and is often an absentee personality. One longs for fulfillment of the wisdom-presence.


Generally disinterested to fully connect with the children (esp. the first child.). Also unable to fully disconnect from the children. Even after death, or a public declaration of separation from one's children

  • Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs = Ketu-yuti-Guru-5. Celebrity-flamboyant Brihaspati-5 rules the profit-seeking Zukra-yuti-Rahu-Mula-11. SJ as an adopted child had two fathers (bio and adoptive) but did not connect well with either of them. Guru-yuti-Ketu cuts-the patronage narrative.. Aged 24, SJ mounted a vigorous denial of paternity toward his eldest child (5), going so far as to hire lawyers to prevent child-support orders. The abandoned (Ketu) mom was requesting support of several hundred dollars per month while SJ company was earning millions. Mula.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono + Kuja (2) lost custody of her daughter for decades.

Resignation to a separative, psychologically distanced relationship to children and advanced students.

A deep and ineffable, sense of loss for the spiritual teacher and dream guides, who seem to have been taken away by circumstances beyond one's control.

Eliminates all that is outdated, including desiccated beliefs and no longer needed experiences for children

  • Fijación Oral 1977- singer Shakira Mebarak spearheads a large-scale (Guru-5) social programme to eliminate (Ketu-5) childhood malnutrition

A longing (Ketu) for the imagined satisfaction of completed union with the source of universal wisdom (Guru).

Groundless optimism and scattered generosity. Highly sensitive to religious dogma and the elite behaviors of the priesthood, but disconnected from the authentic source of the wisdom teachings . Tends to feel depressed around priests and professors.

Inability to establish personal certainty regarding the portfolio of Guru: religious faith, philosophical inquiry, temple culture, priesthood and public ritual, the father, teachers and preachers, humanistic education.

one may engage in religious and philosophical life indefinitely, driven by a need to find a wisdom truth, without ever achieving a clear public religious identity or a clear personal sense of lasting truth.


The Incoherent Husband.


In a wifely nativity, Guru-yuti-Ketu may represent a second partner whose presence is dispersed, incoherent, or not formalized.

  • Friends 1969- drama-fashion Jennifer Aniston * Somana-yuti-Kuja . Ms. Aniston entered a second marriage with American dramatist Justin Theroux during 2015-2017 The marriage coincided with her Janma Sade-Sati Vrischika Nov-2014 until Jan-2017. Although numerous strong connections appear between this couple, such as his Chandra-Meena matching many of the Meena features of her nativity, nevertheless Guru-yuti-Ketu-1 may tragically abbreviate the second union..

Often the husband suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life and continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the adult relationships, particularly playing the husband role within a marriage.

In the nativity of a wife, Guru-yuti-Ketu may indicate a somewhat unpredictable and inconstant first husband from whom the native feels detached, albeit not adversarial.

If Rahu occupies a position of strength, the relationship may continue to be defining and supportive while accommodating the non-threatening and dispersed-focus of the second-or-additional partner.

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton (11) * special challenges added for Thula-nativity due to Guru rules 3-6

First husband may have psychically weak boundaries which allow predatory others to enter his intimate space.

In the nativity of a wife, Ketu-yuti-Guru may also indicate uncertainty regarding the rather nebulous (Ketu) character of the first husband (Guru).

In bhava-1: the husband has multiple identities. He contributes to one's personal identity. However, this figure is not much interested in theGuru-1 native and he does not remain for long.

In bhava-2, impacts the relationship with family lineage values and ancestral knowledge treasuries. Financial values.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono + Kuja * largely abandoned her traditional Japanese values in favor of a Bohemian artistic lifestyle, much to the chagrin of her elite family

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton * partner POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton

When Brihaspati rules dhanabhava, the traditional wisdom lineage of the family ancestry may be expansive, but one may feel ambivalent toward those traditions, seeking something undefined and often unavailable.

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru was sent away (Ketu) from his family (2) to attend English boarding school (Harrow) at a very young age. Nehru was not permitted to return to his family's home until after completing his law qualifications in London, in his early twenties. He was a proponent of English-language (2) modernization and rational westernization as methods of unlocking India's bondage to superstition and generational poverty, yet he wanted to maintain the ancestral traditions (2) and languages as routes to dignified self-sufficiency and celebration of a great treasury of knowledge. This quandary underwent many iterations but was never resolved.

In bhava-5: no children. The husband has multiple talents. He may be a politician or entertainer. He is not inclined to contribute financially to the marriage; the native earns everything.

  • Swing Time 1911-1995 dance theatre Ginger Rogers * five husbands, five divorces. Husbands all hailed from the entertainment industry (5) A dancer, dramatist, and financial investor who survived five marriages and became a wealthy independent woman. On the way to that happier later-life status, Rogers dropped out of high school, and was kidnapped from her home as a toddler by an angry father who was denied custody during her parents' divorce. In toddlerhood, her mother left little Virginia (Ginger) with grandparents for two years so mom could write Hollywood move scripts. Power-pack in Meza-11 = Shani + Mangala + Rahu provides a stabilizing balancing effect not supportive of marriage but enhancing Meza independent action.

In bhava-6: husband has multiple accidents, injuries, and ailments; financial indebtedness; and perhaps due to the incoherent aura can be attacked. May be strengthened by psychic exercise to fortify the aura.

In bhava-7, multiplier Guru meets amputator Ketu

In bhava-8: husband may have secret lives or undisclosed personality traits, or other covered items.

In bhava-9

In bhava-11: the husband has multiple friends and the marriage is socially well networked. He helps the wife to make social connections. However has few boundaries in his friendly relations and may have many friends with benefits.

Ketu + a strong benefic, e.g. well-placed Zukra or Guru, indicates surprisingly easy popularity * what Americans call "like-ability" * with the common folk , even despite potentially glaring character flaws.

Misapprehension or dispersion of clarity (Ketu) re: Doctrine and Beliefs (Guru) unclear conviction * boundary issues

  • USA-Sen-Utah 1947- finance Mitt Romney + Surya-yuti-Kuja + Budha (11) = son of the respected former Michigan governor George Romney, has strong political credentials. Yet the younger Romney seems burdened in his political career by an unwillingness to establish a clear boundary between exclusive doctrinal commitments of a singular faith-community versus the constitutional government of pluralistic nation. Also he has been unwilling to address the widespread perception that "Mormonism isn't a religion; it's a business . Mitt Romney is popular largely because he sticks to specific financial principles (uttama-Rahu-8 however indicates much camouflaged treasury). Yet his waffling (Ketu) on boundaries of doctrine (Guru) eventually made him unsuitable as a presidential candidate. Having stood for numerous elections, he won only once (Mass governor) and having established himself, then refused to stand for re-election.

The lessons of Professor Ketu are inherently unpredictable and His effects fluctuate over time. These lessons are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding. The Ketu-supported ride to popularity can also collapse into public disregard, divorce, disassociation, or disgrace.

If the lessons of Professor Guru are stronger, one may become an ungrounded spiritual minister .

The lessons of Professor Ketu are stronger, one can become a "talking head" who promotes a certain religious or philosophical view to which he is not personally connected.

Profound ambivalence veiled in an aura of humanism. Will promote any view that brings him acceptance and gain.

If there is a spiritual-religious doctrinal authority figure (and often there is none because Ketu disregards doctrine) that figure suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life and continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the teaching-preaching relationships.

Confusion about what genuine faith is, or feels like. Public approval can replace personal faith.

Subject to cult beliefs and idolatry of a guru or an ideology. Sudden changes of religious or moral conviction, in order to serve the interests of others .

Tendency to absorb the children of others . Large family with numerous offspring, but few are one's own.

Beholden to many for one's own prosperity.

Usually a happy person, not prone to deep inquiry, willing to serve as a symbolic guru or social figurehead. Enjoys public approval through promoting a generalized positive view of life and the future. Constitutional dislike of religious inquiry.

Ketu is trying to eliminate attachment to belief systems which have become an obstacle on one 's path to spiritual development. In this process, one experiences confusion about what expansion is and what faith is and how to connect authentically to the source of prosperity and faith.

  • Walden 1817-1862 abolition Henry David Thoreau * lagnesha Guru in Vrizchika yuti Ketu-Vrizchika-9 wrote in the 1850's. He recorded not only his attraction * akarshana * to the currently popular Transcendentalist philosophy, but also his skepticism toward all philosophical teachings

Unless one is sufficiently conscious, tendency to enthusiastically promote beliefs to which one has no authentic connection . Classic planetary yoga for a hypocritical preacher.
