Mesha = Aries - competition, innovation, championship, vitality

Ketu provides the ease of No Resistance against direct forward action. Yet matters of Mesha can become incoherent (do not stick together) when Ketu the Releaser occupies the Kriya rashi.

The lessons of Professor Ketu = the Viewpoint of the Witness, the act of surrender, "Islam" .

Ketu signifies a cloud-like dispersion of social meaning and disconnection to material reality. Ketu-Mesha pulverizes and nebulizes Mesha-matters such as

  • new birth, new arrival

  • direct unimpeded force

  • competition, championship "best in the field"

  • primitive life-force vitality

Ketu-Mesha = no capacity to resist or prevent the incursion of physical force , which can allow a higher incidence of aggressive or competitive attack by less nebulous forces.

Weakness in the aura-shell scatters the defenses and accepts what is while at the same time the perpetrators of invasive energy are not accused.

  1. Ketu-Mesha-1 represents dissolution of independent identity and disregard for aggressive competititors.
  2. Ketu-Mesha-2 represents dissolution of asset-hoards and disregard for aggressive bankers.
  3. Ketu-Mesha-3 represents dissolution of mentality and disregard for aggressive managers.
  4. Ketu-Mesha-4 represents dissolution of security and disregard for aggressive defenders.
  5. Ketu-Mesha-5 represents dissolution of intelligence and disregard for aggressive politicians.
  6. Ketu-Mesha-6 represents dissolution of debts and disregard for aggressive accusations.
  7. Ketu-Mesha-7 represents dissolution of equity and disregard for aggressive negotiators.
  8. Ketu-Mesha-8 represents dissolution of secrecy and disregard for aggressive invaders.
  9. Ketu-Mesha-9 represents dissolution of doctrine and disregard for aggressive patriarchs
  10. Ketu-Mesha-10 represents dissolution of social-status and disregard for aggressive regulators.
  11. Ketu-Mesha-11 represents dissolution of goals and disregard for aggressive friends.
  12. Ketu-Mesha-12 represents dissolution of enclosures and disregard for aggressive travelers.

One's ability to innovate and compete is both unlimited and unimportant.

If the nativity shows an otherwise robust development of the physical energies [Mangala] then one may perform at high levels of athletic, competitive, and body-based identity.

Detaching Ketu ensures that one is no longer attached to the competitive process, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters.

It is relatively easy to achieve the alpha leader position in any contest.

Yet, ego-attachment to winning is absent. Ironically, being an easy winner, one is unlikely believe that one's success in matters of championship or innovation is terribly important.

There is a sense of been there, done that which is quite apathetic and detached even when the relative absence of competition has eased the process of achieving first-place.

Eccentric, dispersed, scattered home environment and disconnected parenting

Parents, Siblings, Partner

In bhava-3 = a passive-aggressive sibling or cousin.

In bhava-4, passive-aggressive mother or upset conditions in the home-or-homeland.

In bhava-7, passive-aggressive spouse.

In bhava-9, the father or priest or professor or other ideologues can be passive-aggressive.

In Mesha, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Mangala-like competitive and warlike characteristics. Similar to Ketu in bhava-1, but less specific detail. Depends absolutely upon how Professor Mangala functions in the overall nativity.

One minimal comment is that, when Ketu the Releaser occupies Mesha rashi, Ketu will blunt the sensitivities of Mangala, making the native less warlike and more self-preoccupied, less clear about their external military goals and more concerned with their internal warfare.

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

One is drawn by [akashic memory]

  • into the worlds of blood, birth, lively movement,

  • where one may mingle with athletes, hunters, heroes and warriors as one used to do in a previous life;

  • Yet, in the current life, the thrill of supremacy - of conquering - is long gone.

  • Ketu-Mesha seeks to actively disperse new movements, scattering it like particles of dust in a swift dust-cloud

Ketu's influence moves the attributes of Mesha - conflict, aggression, direct action and competition - into the 'liminal' arena.

One competes against standards for achievement it is true but these will tend to be spiritual standards which have little material value.

Thus one's warrior energies are deflected within, and one is unlikely to achieve much unique self-definition in external social life.

Dissatisfied with the basically selfish human condition, and uncomfortable with direct competition, one typically shows a blunted individualism which is neither conformist nor marginalist, but is a profound disengagement from the whole pursuit of establishing identity.

They are odd.

Unless Ketu receives drishti of Mangala, males may have less interest in competitive sports; Feminine Nativities retreat from attention-getting fashion. Wonderful for winning inner battles against addiction or fears; for un-conflicted dedication to an organization or ideal. They go where angels fear to tread.

[Ketu-Mesha] = Ketu in bhava-7 Detachment from relationships both personal and professional, particularly marriage. Scattered loyalties, unclear commitments due to adolescent self-concern. Pulverized attachments to terms of the contract; may rationalize infidelities using cloudy, obscurantist reasoning. Separative instincts; easy to leave the agreement at the least provocation; mate has abandonment fears.

Rahu-1 suggests a strong personality much more concentrated in self-life-force and much less engaged in relationship harmony, but able to symbolize and vitalize behaviors of balance and diplomacy; also able to attract mates with personal vitality and charisma. Ketu-7 However, struggles to keep a promise to others - and to oneself.
