Ketu = Gemini provides the ease of No Resistance = No Barriers regarding announcement, reports, and communicative relationships.

Ketu represents "surrender" , "Islam" . Ketu surrenders to whatever experience is provided and when in Mithunaya that experience is dualization , polarization, and bifurcation of twin-pair sets.

The twin-pairs may be physical or mental, but only rarely emotional or spiritual.

Mithunaya is a highly sexualized rashi as well as a highly intellectualized one, so there tend to be duplicate "mirroring" relationships in numerous subject-object contexts.

In Mithuna, Ketu surrenders to the flow of transaction, writing, communication, publication and announcement.

Thus if the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the communicative energies [Budha] the native may perform at high levels of media and publications skill.

Shri Ganesha ensures that one is no longer attached to the publication process, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters. One's ability to broadcast the contents of one's own mental narrative is both unlimited and unimportant.

Thus with Ketu-Mithunaya is relatively easy to achieve and hold the role of articulator and "spokesperson" for a particular cultural narrative.

Yet ironically because of the absence of ego-attachment one is unlikely believe that one's success in matters of making announcements and delivering instructions is terribly important.

Ketu-Mithuna connotes a mentalized ennui * been there, done that * which may seem apathetic and detached even when the relative absence of obstacles has eased the process of verbal and written expression of the mental talk.

Deconstructed narrative * Denials

Mithunaya = constructed narrative, or script. Ketu = detachment from the construction. One might be a very active communicator, but there is minimal attachment to any inherent meaning within the narrative.

  • Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs denied his relationship to his first daughter born of romance, claiming that the paternity tests were inaccurate (the tests had 95% proven validity). Years later he did accept his offspring, but she reported that he was not always pleasant. Guru-yuti-Ketu-5.

Talk though one might - write, lecture and prognosticate - one has a deep sense that truth is absolutely inexpressible by human language . Therefore all of this chatter means absolutely nothing.

Ketu-Mithunaya does not prevent one from nattering on. If Budha is well disposed, one may write, talk, deliver speeches, pontificate at great length. But it is obvious to the Witness that one is not likely to connect with any essential truth by using the vehicle of human communication.

In Mithunaya, dissociating Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Budha-like communicative characteristics.

Similar to Ketu in bhava-3, but less specific mental-narrative detail. Ketu is absorptive and Budha is absorptive, so this combination tends to be extremely vulnerable to public projection.

the native may become a blank screen upon which is project glorious or demonic qualities, according to the needs of the collective unconscious.

Outcome depends on how Professor Budha functions in the overall nativity.

"been there, done that" parallel life pull

  • One is drawn by [akashic memory]

  • into the worlds of story-telling and publications,

  • where one may mingle with writers, advertisers, publishers and producers as one used to do in a previous life;

  • Yet, in the current life, the thrill of conversation and commercial exchange is long gone.

  • Ketu-Mithunaya seeks to quickly disperse the collected narratives, handily scattering them like particles of dust in an ephemeral dust-cloud

Sexual-energy transfer, too, may have largely lost its charm.

Even while other factors may cause the native to promote large-scale humanistic ideals, one tends to disregard the details necessary to materialize those ideals. One may have a rather disinterested attitude toward information-transaction events such as human conversations, mass marketing, publications media.

One minimal comment: when occupying Mithuna rashi, Ketu may blur the mental-communicative sensitivities of Mercury, making the native dissatisfied with mundane communications and likely to twist, evade, mystify, or ignore the media-image-projection or communicative conventions of one's culture by displaying out-of-boundary signals.

Ketu encourages the native to believe that mental wellness (3, Mithunaya) and communicative accuracy [Budha] = irrelevant to spiritual advance. Ketu does not invest the solar ego-membrane energy toward developing clear, descriptive communications. Thus, communications may be foggy and unconcerned with sourced intelligence.

Rather one relies on a few phrases or imagistic devices, and does not make the effort to articulate his speech or gestures. One may live at the mercy of media handlers (Mithunaya hands) or image-projection professionals in the advertising or public relations industry

Similarly, when there is misrepresentation in the press or one's ideas have been misinterpreted by a hostile media faction, one may feel dissolved toward action and do little to correct the error

Collapsing Ketu + svakshetra Budha = the native 's verbal and written communication may be unclear or difficult to understand even whilst he may be multi-lingual or work in a media job! Often the native 's pronunciation is unclear. A congenital speech defect may be the culprit.
