Nota Bene:

before declaring any results for Zukra-yuti-Ketu look for compensating strengths via other harmonizing, agreement-seeking, treasury-attracting, advising, negotiating indicators:

  • ruler of Zukra's nakshatra

  • ruler of Zukra's rashi

  • Zukra's bhava of residence and its ruler

  • 7th-from-Chandra (partner's influence and contributions)

  • additional graha yuti Ketu


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

  • generally, unconstrained (Ketu) by balancing arrangements such as terms of agreement, vows, and treaties
  • maritally unavailable
  • indifferent to the wife-figure and her identity
  • potential for an alliance-abandonment narrative
  • generally, unaffected by the agents of mutuality, promise-making and covenant-keeping, such as attorneys and advisers
  • dissolved sensual boundaries may result in unconstrained sweets-seeking behaviors, such as alcohol, drugs, and sexual pleasuring
  • peculiar or arbitrary approach toward treasures-and-pleasures
  • fragmented equity; disinterested in justice
  • apathetic, dispassionate, observing, witness toward matters of marriage, contracts, trusts, negotiated settlements
  • sensual disorientation
  • the second lifepartnership (if any) may avoid (Ketu) public recognition via formal vows

Vimshottari Dasha effects

Ketu mahadasha continues seamlessly into the Zukra Mahadadasha, creating a continuous Ketu-Zukra era lasting 27 years.

Effects of the umbrella 27-year period depend primarily on Zukra's bhava-rulerships but also upon Professor Ketu's bhava of residence.

The concerns of women, of marriage, of relationships, of agreements, of trusts and treaties, of equity, of justice, of balance, or of contractual arrangements may seem irrelevant.

There may be effectively no limits (Ketu) upon sensual indulgence (Zukra). Sweets, liquors, drugs, fine scents, luxurious fabrics, or any variety of women may be had with impunity. Simultaneously, the sensual experiences which seem ever-present may also be perceived as meaningless.

Zukra-yuti-Ketu indicates a chronic dissatisfaction with women and ever-readiness to dissolve previous agreements or break alliances, particularly financial deals and marriage contracts.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor * 1 deg orb in Rohini (10 leadership) notoriously married six times. His primary divorce strategy was annulment (Ketu, null, naught) but he used beheading when necessary to break the bond with an unsatisfying wife (Ketu, amputation). Henry expressed a range of dissatisfactions regarding wives including failure to produce the living male issue, unpleasant appearance or lack of beauty, disharmonious conduct in marriage, and other seemingly vacuous complaints which would not normally have substantiated a divorce (Ketu vacuum). Perhaps more influentially, Henry broke the 1000-year enthrallment of England's rich farmlands that were being contractually held by the Church of Rome, thus adding vast wealth into the royal coffers and setting off another chain of beheadings for those who would oppose Henry's contract-breaking ways.

Ketu disperses Zukra's avowing, contracting, arranging, balance-seeking, agreeable, negotiating, promising, partnering behaviors.

Zukra contributes a relationship focus to Ketu's dispersing actions.

Yoga for alternative expressions of relationship formation. May experience a dissolution and misting-away of the purported contractual forms and formalities, such as prescribed marital interactions, established protocols for making love and maintaining unions, and various consensus-reality fixed interpretations of female identity.

May express the remarkable pattern of marriage to partner-1, followed by divorce-1, followed by remarriage to partner-1, followed by divorce-2 from partner-1. Two marriages and two divorces from the same partner can be possible ... but Zukra should be strengthened by swakshetra or parivartamsha.

Breaks-up the lover's instinctual pursuit of balance and harmony. Dissolves the promise to remain faithful to a trust.

Yet typically the dissolving, foggy qualities of Ketu distract and diffuse the public gaze. Relationship inconsistencies and incoherence are often unverifiable.

  • POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower avoided the detection of the Nazi forces of occupies France when mounting the dangerous Normandy Invasion on D-Day in WW-2. His wartime extramarital affair (Zukra) and the parallel adventures of his wife (Zukra) were also successfully denied, preventing scandal.

Graha Pakvata * Delayed Planetary maturity

Zukra normally matures at age 25, while Rahu and Ketu mature at age 48.

When Zukra-yuti-Rahu or Zukra-yuti-Ketu, Zukra's maturity is delayed, and Zukra cannot mature until after age 48-50.

One effect of the delayed maturity for Zukra is that one may remain sensually disengaged and unable to meaningfully connect to either the wife-figure or to women in general (such as sisters, cousin-sisters, sisters-in-law, aunts, or female cohort). Disregarding of contracts and promises in general, finding fair agreements to be irrelevant to one's purpose, until after age 48.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor entered his sixth marriage to Catherine Parr on12-July-1543. From his first marriage age-18 until his sixth marriage age 51, marriage contracts and wives were surely the bane of Henry's existence. Witnesses remarked that by age 51 he seemed more interested in hearing the viewpoint of his wife, and the couple enjoyed a higher degree of parity than the dominating Henry had ever previously displayed in his marriages. After Ketu matured, it was he who expired, and not his wife.


Seldom Satisfied

Ketu provides detachment, distanced perspective, and the witness viewpoint toward life's ongoing parade of experiences. Professor Zukra specializes in sense-pleasures and the human urge to balance things. Therefore Ketu-yuti-Zukra tends to indicate a worldview that is appreciative of balanced beauty yet not embroiled in it nor even much accountable to it.

Taste and Pleasure

May lack taste in music. May lack taste (Zukra) in general, particularly at the physical level of tasting food. The gustatory senses are dulled, yet Zukra yearns for a satisfying taste. One may then overcompensate by eating or drinking excessively in desperate hope of a satisfying experience. Similarly overuse of devices to increase taste may emerge in practice such as heavy use of stimulating spices. The use of stimulants in general is indicated, motivated by Zukra's attempt to enjoy balance, pleasure, and satisfaction while Ketu is busy nebulizing, pulverizing, and dispersing the pleasuring experiences.

Ketu the Dissolver of Form has no natural limits. Ketu thus is capable of intense indulgence in pleasures with no time limit or nerve limit; addictions may be seen with the Ketu-Zukra pairing, as well as temporary and fleeting engagement with beautiful music (should Zukra be strong per se). Relationship to the Muse is unlimited and visionaries may be born with this pairing. But as to whether the vision can be realized, Ketu presents a cloud of unknowing, and other more materially enduring graha (especially Shani) would need to be reinforcing a musical career if for example Zukra were a 10th amshapathi.

Because Ketu only accepts drishti from eight other graha, but produces no drishti of His own, Professor Ketu is easily influenced by the agendas of other graha. Ketu may in some nativities be accepting drishti of Shani or another graha which would increase the structure thus allowing Ketu-yuti-Zukra to express social leadership. Yet in private circumstance, the individual may feel beset by sensual excess.

Professor Ketu having no limits, Ketuva does not have a natural way to register satisfaction, completion, saturation, or finish. dissatisfaction with the beauty or attractiveness of the beloved. With the shifting boundaries and foggy expectations of Ketu dissolving somewhat Zukra's sense of balance, one may be unable to acquire reliable long-term relationship negotiation skills thus shift from relationship to relationship in search of ineffable satisfaction.

Also, underlying a superficially pleasant or financially privileged relationship there may persist a fundamental disdain (Ketu) for the partner (Zukra).

Zukra-yuti-Ketugenerates a particular sort of intangible, dispersed dis-satisfaction with relationships (Ketu) and dispersed de-valuation of women (Zukra).

  • The poet, occultist William Butler Yeats had Zukra-Ketu-Mesha-8 ruled by nichha-Mangala-11. His many, chronically unsatisfying, relationships with women were chronicled by himself and his literary peers.
  • Even after finally obtaining the affections of an unrequired lover after whom he had pined for years, Yeats wrote of his inability to fully merge with her despite the long-sought physical union finally having been granted."The tragedy of sexual intercourse is the perpetual virginity of the soul."

This pattern of experience can produce dis-appointment of the culturally transmitted expectations which promote an ideal of lasting harmony in marital relationships.

Zukra-yuti-Ketualso suggests a weakened ability to sustain wealth and a fruitless search for lasting pleasures in life.

For a male, the first marriage is particularly perplexing since Ketu's ennui may not be familiar. A second marriage with this configuration may bring out the steadier familiarity with Ketu's characteristic ennui but at the same time the disappointment is much less acute because it has become more familiar.

Contracts, terms of agreement, sensual pleasure, wealth, and beauty are eventually beheaded as the chidrakaraka Ketu causes detachment from the sources of pleasure and values.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor was not only a famous "beheader of wives". With Zukra-yuti-Ketu in dharma-bhava-9, King Henry disregarded the lucrative financial contracts (Zukra) that England had historically maintained with the Church of Rome. In re-arranging the contracts, Henry effectively cut (Ketu) the traditional religious beliefs and historic * worth-ship * worship of an entire nation to suit his personal infidelities. Rahu-3 made him an ambitious document writer. Thus Henry succeeded in dissolving (Ketu) an essential politico-religious (9) contract and redirecting the flow of lucre (Zukra-Vrishabha) from Rome toward his own courts and coffers.

Difficulty to firmly establish the value and worth of the Other.

  • one may feel lost in the world of human-to-human relationships

  • inability to identify the contractual interests of the Other; the point of engagement with Other is lost in a cloud (nebulous Ketu)

  • a chronic ennui in matters marital

  • No matter how valiant or diligent the spouse-partner in supporting the relationship and providing value for one, one may feel a chronic dissatisfaction with any peer-bond

marriage seems arbitrary (or expedient) and rather doomed to emptiness

promiscuity or long bouts of celibacy as a result

frequent separations between the partners, due to uncontrolled external circumstances (ambitions of Rahu)

May misinterpret or not notice the contribution of the marriage partner, business partner, or peer advisers. Disregards medical and legal advice, or reinterprets the guidance without regard to the adviser's intent.

  • Ketu-yuti-Zukra falls into the delusion of believing that one has accomplished all goals in solitude or entirely through one's own graces.

  • It is easy (Zukra) to undervalue, underestimate, underweight the contributions of essential Others and their key nature in creating happiness for oneself

  • During Ketu periods, tangible "dissatisfaction" or awareness of the insubstantiality of arrangements, contracts, balance in human affairs

Disregard and detachment from beauty, pleasure, and wealth

  • Should one achieve beauty, pleasure, and wealth, one may abandon attachment to these lovely experiences through apathy and discontent.

  • Excellent placement for a yogi of any variety - karma yogi, jnana yogi, even bhakti yogi when the ephemeral nature of the beloved is core to the practice


Wife

In a husband-figure nativity = devaluation of the wife-figure. Similar to Guru-yuti-Ketu for a wife's first husband, Ketu + Zukra for a husband's first wife indicates the wife-figure's weak psychic boundaries, suggesting her availability to predatory others who pursue her intimate space.

In a wife's nativity, devaluation of the organs of sexual pleasure, and of the feminine associates. For a wife-figure, distancing and devaluation from one's own attractive beauty.

For both genders, devaluation of financial wealth and chronic inability to maintain agreements.

The sexual pleasuring tastes may be peculiar and lovemaking becomes both very permissive (no limits) and emotionally distant.

If Shani is involved, the tastes may become either vulgar (tamasic)or strictly austere (sattvic).

One feels apathetic toward sensual pleasures and yet because Ketu dissolves boundaries, one constantly pursues these unattainable pleasures, into the void.

Inability to establish personal certainty regarding the portfolio of Zukra: Alliances and contracts, harmony and relationships based on mutual interest, sweets and sugars, pleasures of the senses, beauty and art, music and women.

Ketu may engage in sense-pleasuring life indefinitely, driven by a need to indulge oneself in sweet and harmonious experience, without ever achieving a clear public marital identity or a clear personal sense of being satisfied in a relationship.

Disorientation to the tastes, preferences, aesthetics of the spouse and contractual partners. Due to Rahu in 7th-from-Zukra, in the nativity of a husband, the wife-figure may have fascinating (Rahu) other relationships.

  • Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst married a showgirl from a hierarchically mismatched social class background relative to himself. His wife's mother operated a brothel (his Zukra-6). Hearst was one of the most financially and social powerful men of his generation. Due to his 7th-from-Chandra-10 his expectation was that partner-1 would be primarily a parent and householder, protecting his way of life. Indeed she bore him five sons and protected their holdings, but the relationship soured as their tastes in life diverged and Hearst then undertook a second lifepartnership. Due to Ketu-yuti-Zukra in 8th-from-2nd-from-Chandra while Zukra also rules 2nd-from-Chandra, the 2nd partnership was never legalized and in Hearst's day the social bourgeois social ethics prevented him from acknowledging their multi-decade union.

Graha involved in yoga with formless Ketu have no natural boundary that says " enough". Particularly in this combination of Ketu with Zukra-Satisfaction, the pursuit of fulfillment of the contract or fulfillment of the expectations regarding the sensations of satisfaction from sensual pleasuring may lead to excessive indulgence and possibly addictions (particularly if associated with bhava-6 or bhava-12). Interpersonal relationships may bring abundant pleasure but one is seldom satisfied with the quality of the partner or the union.

  • England-King 1491-1547 Henry VIII Tudor wanted a mother to produce and raise his son. All six of his wives certainly tried to produce a son for him. However he was rather impatient with this process due to chidra-karaka "the cutter" Ketu-yuti-Zukra in Rohini-10 within 1 degree of orb, which affects the longevity of the marriages.


Peculiar pleasuring behaviors

Ketu-yuti-Zukra -- especially if Zukra = strong or the yoga occurs in kendra -- can suggest promiscuity, sex addictions involving pornography (especially visual stimuli which show exaggerated sexual pleasure organs. Zukra rules the 'external' or pleasure-producing sex organs).

Zukra-yuti-Ketu may suggest a habitual use of pleasure-stimulating drugs, or chronic auto-eroticism, exotic sexual unions, or other attempts to overcome the fundamental distancing from one's own natural ability to experience pleasure within a committed relationship.

Typically

  • disappointment in life due to having invested much energy in pursuit of sensual pleasures and financial wealth, yet because one fundamentally disregards the basic promise-keeping, alliance-building mechanism

  • one's pleasures are short-lived, and always disappointing.

  • Ketu prevents satisfaction through experience on the material plane.

  • Yet one cannot be dissuaded and the stronger is Zukra, the stronger one's Quixotic pursuit of the goal.


Marriage and the feminine partner(s)

A husband with Ketu-yuti-Zukra may appear to be "seldom satisfied" with the value of the wife.

Due to Ketu, husband may be unclear or unrealistic about women, and generally unable to sustain a lasting bond with the feminine partner.

Husband may swing between extremes of fantastic entrancement and urgent need for union upon the one hand, and bitter disappointment or cold disregard for the fair sex, upon the other.

In marriage - whether husband's first or his tenth - such a groom believes that one has made a poor choice - and that some ineffable better wife is just waiting to complete this unsatisfying life. Ketu-yuti-Zukra may perceive marriage as un-completable due to scattered, disconnecting Ketu.

If Zukra is adequately strong especially, if angular, a prospect of at least two marriages becomes more likely. In the nativity of a husband-figure, the first marriage partner as well as the first marriage contract are defined by the graha which holds the highest degree within the cluster of graha sharing a rashi with Zukra. The spouse defined as a Ketu-type may be spouse-1, spouse-2 or further in the chain according to the degree placements.

The second marriage may appear to be even more incomplete than the first, and the second wife for a husband nativity is likely to be beautiful, distant, and utterly apathetic toward one 's need for pleasurable attention. The second wife may be quite disengaged from the world or have contempt for material attachments.


With Ketu-yuti-Zukra, one's relationships with women, regardless of one's own gender or orientation, are undermined by one's own fundamental apathy toward beauty, pleasure, and wealth.

Ketu enforces a lack of engagement with promise-based alliance (Zukra), which erodes trust in the source of pleasure will eventually cause the subconscious to destroy most of one's accumulated wealth.

  • Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst . Second marriage not social recognized, balance dispersed. Although he lived many decades of his financially privileged adult life with a beautiful companion actress and singer, Hearst remained legally married to his first wife until his death. Wife-1 was very much involved in his business and financial affairs. His second partner had no legal standing. During the final two decades of his life, she remained in partnership with him, while his financial empire disintegrated (Ketu witness to dissolution).

Although this condition can be remediated by conscious behavioral adaption, the birth condition in the nativity does indicate a past-life proclivity toward chronic lack of respect for the material pleasuring processes. Ketu-yuti-Zukra = an excellent combination for vows of sugar-austerity (no alcohol or other sugars, no sexual pleasuring, no wealth accumulation) if one is spiritually prepared.

Male or female, one will tend to fantasize and project unrealistic qualities upon the lover;

then (esp. if incoming Shani drishti) reality intrudes in the fantasy . During some Ketu bhukti, there is a massive disappointment.


Pleasuring genitalia

In the physical body, Zukra energizes the pleasure-producing "external" sexual organs (not the "interior sexual parts such as uterus or prostate, but rather the luxuriously nerve-rich external genitalia.

Ketu + Zukra may indicate a peculiarity of the sexual organs. In males, there is some oddness of the penis or testicles. In females, there is some oddness of the clitoris or vulva.

Treasury

Ketu's job is to provide the experience of impermanence, dispersal of outdated forms, separation, detachment and surrender to the pure essence of Source.

For a masculine nativity, the wife-figure may become an agent of dissolution of accrued financial wealth . There may be a long period of treasury -building in marriage but some occurrence of a Ketu bhukti could cause a major loss of financial well-being through one's own apathy toward trusts and promises. Ketu suggests that there is also dissolving agency within the character of the wife-figure. Regardless of gender identification within this life, Zukra-yuti-Ketu shows material-wealth lost via an invalid, incomplete, apathetic, alienated, or surrendered partner.

Ketu Doubts the Zukra-Partnership

Dissatisfied and doubting with one's alliances. Distrust of intimate unions and equal advising or consulting relationships. Unable to fully connect with the partner. Also unable to fully disconnect from the partner. Even after death, divorce, or a public declaration of separation, one longs for fulfillment of the spousal presence.

A longing for the imagined satisfaction of completed union with the perfect mate. Unable to appreciate the benefits of the real mate. Wants another more sexual, more beautiful, more financially privileged, more talented, more musical, more artistic, more diplomatic, more sweet.

Absent sweetness

Persistent disconnection from the sweetness of partnership relations may drive one to seek chemical sweetness and thus alcoholism drug addiction and various sexual addictions are associated with Ketu + Zukra.


Zukra-yuti-Ketu = perhaps the most difficult placement for Ketu. Zukra's job is to create balanced, mutually pleasurable partnerships between human beings which give enormous value to life.

Without the prospect of satisfaction from promise-based committed relationships, life becomes rather flat and unsatisfying.

Only the advanced spiritual aspirant will recognize an important opportunity to take a vow of"no sweets " for a lifetime, which can permit the tantric upgrade of Zukra's pleasures into extraordinary magical knowledge.


one may feel rather ambivalent about all of the values typically signified by Zukra: money, knowledge, speech, history, appearance of the face and neck; as well as alliances, partners as persons, partnership as an art form, terms of contracts, agreements and promises.


The male native is chronically unhappy in marriage. If there is a divorce due to one 's belief that he can find that ineffably perfect better wife, he may yet be unable to make a clean psychological separation from the unsatisfying first spouse. For a male, the second lifepartnership if any will be plagued by one 's continuing unhappy engagement with the problematic first spouse.


Resignation to a psychologically distanced relationship with the partner, and with all women who hold a wifely or lover-ly role. A deep and ineffable, sense of dissolution in the relationship with life partners who seem to have been taken away by circumstances beyond one's control.

Often the partner suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life ad continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the adult relationships.

One may be attracted into long-distance love relationships, where true to Ketu's programming, one may gaze at the partner from afar. At a distance, one may feel locked into an orbiting mutual bond with the partner. Yet there is a deeply resigned sadness that the partnership might never successfully conjoin. Ketu dissolves and destabilizes the character of the partnership, and one may devalue the partner.


In a husband's nativity, one may be chronically ambivalent regarding real value of the wife's qualities, particularly her beauty. The husband may perceive that there is something missing in the relationship to his wife. Something in the list of her valuable qualities is not completed.

In both male and female nativities, a resigned state of discontent in marriage. Tends to feel depressed around women.

Ambivalence toward aesthetic values. After a honeymoon period, becomes dissatisfied with works of art and architecture, with musical compositions and performances, and feels uncertain about the value of valuable goods and conserved knowledge.

Persistently romantic on the surface yet fundamentally expects a disengaged flatness in relationships.

Wanting relationships to be ever-lovely and sweet; always disappointed. Karaka for disconnection with the spouse.

If Zukra is stronger, may substitute a plethora of sensual pleasures for abiding love.

If Ketu is stronger, at birth or by dasha/gochara, extraordinary disappointment in partnership, leading to depression and despair.

Extremely sensitive to sugars: delicate kidney, pancreas, hormones. Karaka for surrender into alcoholism and other sugar addictions.


Detached or apathetic view of spouse due to disorientation at the time of marriage.

Does not harm sexual relations, especially if Zukra is strong.

This yoga limits sexual communication to the realm of sensual pleasure and does not permit deeper psychic union in sex, due to the distancing of Ketu.

Both native and spouse practice distancing behaviors due to trauma in their childhoods.

Ketu + uttama-Zukra may signal a proclivity toward amplified cultural mixing and sense pleasures


Typically the parents' marriage was also sensually rather than spiritually focused and/or subsisted in a condition of deep despair.

Meditation engaging a female deity such as Laxmi, Sara-swati, Tara, Kwan-Yin, Mother Mary, or any female divine energy form from one 's own religious tradition, will improve native's awareness of this distancing habit (rooted in an underlying despair).


It may be helpful to appreciate that Ketu is trying to remove excess sensual pleasures which have become obstacles in one's spiritual development.

Typically one fights back by asserting a right to pleasures, the exclusive focus on personal pleasure will - ironically - deprive one of lasting harmonious interpersonal agreement.

This is a tricky yoga because of the addiction and denial , but this resolves in honest meditation if one so desires.

Bhava ruled by Zukra express Ketu qualities of impermanence, pulverizing, scattering

Bhava ruled by Zukra show the peculiar influence of scattered-shattered-dispersed and sometimes incoherent flow of Ketu * which always supports spiritual enlightenment by blowing away outdated assumptions about cause-and-effect relationships, but which does tend to present a "breaking up" of existing energy flow

  • SoAfrica-Pres 1918-2013 Long Walk to Freedom Nelson Mandela * Zukra rules 2-speech and 9-doctrine. Mandela spoke with a somewhat high-pitched voice. While his first wife (Zukra-9) was an intensely devoted adherent of her sacred doctrine, Ketu-9 has no interest in fixed catechisms of any kind. Mandela was not a firm ideologue of Communist or Socialist doctrine. He was always willing to consider unusual alliances and arrangements, but commitment tended to be impermanent due to Ketu. In his case, there was indeed a potent and stimulating communication that motivated direct and ambitious action, but it emerged from scripted prepared reports and announcements via Rahu-3-Vrizchika. Mandela was a revolutionary writer not an especially gifted speaker. From his dynamic Mangala-driven writings - not his eccentric voice - emerged that legendary disruptive, upheaving, transformative-healing (Vrischika) energy of revolution.

Zukra-yuti-Ketu in the radical Kundali effectively produces a continuous 27-year Vimshottari dasha period of relationship focus, usually characterized by a repeating cycle of attraction-repulsion-dissolution-attraction * akarshana * nirriti * vikarshana *

Vimshottari Dasha implications

When the two (or more) graha involved in a yuti-yoga also happen to rule adjacent Vimshottari Mahadasha, then the impact of the paired graha is stronger and longer lasting. There is much more time allotted to the development of the mahadasha theme or the pursuit of the mahadasha goal when two mahadasha-pathi are joined.

Dasha sandhi is normally a ligature-era of waning influence preceding a surge of the new energy from the new mahadasha becomes less a period of exhaustion and more a period of continuing vitality. When the two (or more) graha involved in a yuti-yoga also happen to rule adjacent Vimshottari Mahadasha, the dasha-sandhi loses the waning, tiring effect and becomes an era of bridging continuation.

chidra-dasha (the final bhukti of each mahadasha) remain a designated period of forgiveness and unloading of unsustainable goals, but this release experience is not matched by a feeling of severance or depletion. Rather, the chidra-dasha release tends to be experienced as a mid-course correction during ongoing pursuit of the original goal.

Naturally, the overall conditions of the partner graha determine the nature of the outcomes of the extended Mahadasha period. Uttama-Zukra-yuti-Ketu for example is potentially very musical and sensually artistic. However for Meena nativities bhratrupathi-3 + randhresha-8 Zukra (no matter how exalted) generates secretive conditions (8 and 8th-from-8th) for women, wealth, and relationships (Zukra) which deteriorates further via Ketu's dispersion.

Alternatively for the Makara lagna and the Kumbha lagna, Professor Zukra becomes a yogakaraka. If Zukra-yuti-Ketu the agency of Ketu may produce a wandering artist, or a musician of transcendent appeal.

  • Yentl 1942- drama-song-activist Barbra Streisand * Zukra-yuti-Ketu * Zukra-5 parivartamsha Shani-8i. Her musical appeal disregards the boundaries generation and gender. Her Ketu-plus-Zukra mahadasha extended from age 6 until age 33, marking a period of extraordinary musical expression in a variety of styles. Parivartamsha with Shani is deeply structuring and grants longevity to the career.

"Aesthetic of Pleasant Numbness, Amicable Disconnection"

The male is attracted to women of either debauched or mystical qualities (or both).

The male is attracted to long distance unfulfilled, profoundly detached, unattainable, non-physical, or unconsummated marriage relationships.

Male has a tendency to mystify the object of his affectiotns, transforming her into a dream-like vision rather than interacting, relating, and negotiating with a real human person.

May be resigned to a state of chronic dissatisfaction in the first marriage, the male remains dedicated to the unsatisfactory first wife, generally not seeking divorce until some extraordinary trigger might occur.

First wife = unsuitable and unreachable. the native = in despair, unable to feel the sweetness of agreeable spousal life. Yet, marriage is fixed -- As Rahu-Ketu are fixed in their hopeless cycle of seeing each other without any chance of ever experiencing connection.

Marriage subsists in a state of disconnected toddler-style parallel play in which the partners may share many activities and yet they are engaged only with the activity and not with each other.

Generally a man with Ketu-yuti-Zukra feels permanently dissatisfied (Ketu) with partnerships (personal and professional) yet unable to extract oneself from the marriage contract. Yet, if there is enough planetary support for social dignity then despite a deep lack of interpersonal trust and fulfillment, the marriage may remain sexually and socially functional.

  • POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower endured a long-lasting and socially dignified marriage due to (inter alia) matches between the key lagna of him and his wife POTUS-pair-34 Military Families 1896-1979 Mamie Eisenhower. However this marriage involved frequent and multi-year absences. The partners lived on the verge of separation, but never quite split. As they developed into a power-couple (fueled mainly by Mamie's ambitions) they were able to coordinate their social duties. Yet General Eisenhower displayed a perpetual ennui (Ketu) in matters of women, coupling-and-uncoupling from not only his wife but also from other liaisons.

May be a useful contributing yoga for those consciously undertaking holy vows of religious celibacy, including celibate marriage -- particularly if Zukra is already weakened by rashi. However if Zukra is strengthened by rashi (swakshetra or uttamza) then Ketu typically adds the element of persistent dissatisfaction while the bodily sensuality of pleasure-seeking Zukra continues to seek an elusive experience of balanced completion.

In the nativity of a husband-figure, Ketu may represent a second wife. Much depends upon whether there are additional graha in the cluster joining Ketu-yuti-Zukra. If Ketu is the graha closest to Zukra and there is no graha casting drishti upon Zukra, in the event of a second marriage, the disconnection-mystification experience may intensify.


Ketu is a disregarder of forms, including the forms of social law and obligation.

Professor Ketu may contribute a weakening influence for purposes of adherence to the rule of law such as a marriage contract.

Ketu is a fragmenting, particle-distributing influence. Ketu relationships may be perceived as dispersed, pulverized, in a hazy cloud, invisible to the public.

  • Newspapers 1863-1951 plutocrat William Randolph Hearst was born into conditions of treasury and privilege. In his fourth decade of life, Hearst impulsively married a burlesque actress. His wife's mother operated a brothel, and the new wife herself was reputed to have worked as a part-time prostitute. His Vrizabha-Zukra-6-yuti-Ketu. He had become enchanted with her entertaining charm from his seat in the audience; he used this brief infatuation as a proof of suitability for marriage (Zukra-yuti-Ketu * Ketu indicates foolishness, infatuation). She hailed from a social background mismatched to his own (Zukra-6, Zukra-yuti-Ketu). He later fell in love with a stage actress and lived with the second amour for decades, staying 3000 miles from his first wife. However he never remarried his second love, despite their obvious affection for each other. Zukra rules 2nd-from-Chandra - wife-2, and Zukra occupies the mysterious 8th-from-2nd-from-Chandra. His second life partnership remained cloaked in mystery to all but his closest associates.


  • Similarly, UK-Prince 1948- Charles of Wales abandoned his legal wife and mother of his children to pursue a deeper love with his long-time mistress; and by all accounts Charles (and Wm. Hearst) were faithful to their mistresses. Charles' nativity does provide a"release" through the parivartamsha Budha so that he was, eventually, able to marry his second amour. However, their love continued Ketu-style - with no regard for material consequences - for decades before the trigger bhukti made the second marriage possible.

For Zukra = yuti Ketu, the 7th drishti of Rahu, taboo-breaking, naturally applies to the first two marriages at minumum.

Ketu + Zukra = similar to Ketu + yuvatipathi-7 yuvatipathi

Ketu + Zukra affects men more acutely as it brings discontent with the personality of the wife-partner and inability to maintain commitment to a specific promise or inability to develop an agreed set of values in the partnership.

Ketu + Zukra for women has a different effect of throwing off-balance the woman's own inner harmony, which is the basis of her ability to offer a harmonizing beauty to Others and to the world. Marriage is a major source of psychological and bio-chemical stress for her.

Ketu + yuvatipathi-7 = difficulty to establish a lasting balance point

  • in any promise, agreement, advising or counseling relationship, peer equity, diplomatic, or architectural balance.

  • The chidrakaraka Ketu provides a subconscious expectation that all agreements entered into will soon be severed; thus one lacks material commitment and one's negative expectations are soon made manifest.

Zukra-yuti-Ketu: Natural beauty = odd . Not unattractive, but quirky; eccentric; occasionally withdrawn.

Zukra-yuti-Ketu may lack a natural sense of fashion or may miss the beat of conventional standards for decorum and dress. Under the right circumstances their inability to pick up the mainstream conventional signals can support creative expansion in unique, personalized style in the arts.
