Ketu-Simha provides the ease of No Resistance to center-stage entitlements. One may become famous or infamous, notable or notorious. Ketu does not discriminate between positive and negative attention, between curses or applause.

Ketu-Simha suggests a weak, dispersed or abstract type of fame [Simha] may be experienced rather incoherently. Even when the native achieves widely perceived fame or notoriety, Ketu-Simha often does not care about such fame. If there is any response to fame at all, the response is to disregard it or disperse it.

Ketu-Simha idealizes the agent according to bhava. For instance, Ketu-9 represents Father.

Bright lights of Simha are present but not focused; rather one' aura (light-body) is scattered often by the incursion of powerful, regal, authoritative psycho-spiritual influences. Ketu-Simha may seem to produce enormous self-confidences

Ketu represents surrender, Islam. Ketu surrenders to whatever experience is provided. In Simha, Ketu surrenders to the flow of romance, celebrity, genius, gambling, dramatic, and center-stage behaviors.

One's love life may produce peculiar and dispersed experiences.

Brilliant but inconsistent or proscribed romance requires complete surrender or the native may descend into mental ailment.

  • Flowers of Evil 1821-1867 symbolist poet Charles Baudelaire * poetically idealized [Simha] the dreamlike romantic love he felt with the prostitutes he adored [Simha] along with the drugs and tragic diseases of sexploitation

  • Zorro 1969- drama-commerce Catherine Zeta Jones [Shukra-yuti-Ketu]

Inconsistent, peculiar, or fragmented political behaviors [Simha]

Collapsing Ketu permits no barriers therefore highest political powers can be obtained - yet Ketu-Simha soon loses interest. The bright light flickers.

  • POTUS-pair-11 Polk Place 1803-1891 Sarah Childress Polk * Ketu-Simha-2* Via her personal wealth and persistent social networking , SCP so successfully managed the political career of her rustic, workaholic husband that he (surprisingly) won the POTUS-11 election of 1845. Having gained the White House, SCP then began to alienate [Ketu] almost everyone in that socially intensive milieu with her strict interpretation of Presbyterian principles -- including no drinking, dancing, or unnecessary expense. SCP earned the moniker "Sahara Sarah" for her dry, humorless entertaining style. Her beloved husband was not re-elected. In fact, he died immediately after leaving office.

  • Sherlock Holmes 1859-1930 occultist Arthur Conan Doyle [Ketu-12] became involved in politics during his early adulthood. Reflecting a powerfully linked Surya-9, Conan-Doyle hob-nobbed with royalty and celebrities, counted important politicians among his friends, and wrote dozens of well-regarded essays on the major political questions of his day. Yet, the pall of suspicion cast by his involvement with nebulous Spiritualism movement [Ketu-12] caused him to lose two elections. He eventually abandoned politics [Ketu-Simha].

If the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the literary, artistic, fashion, theatrical or performing arts energies [Surya] the native may perform at high levels of center-stage skill. However, the Ketu themes of abandonment and dissolution may be an important part of the artistic production.

Shri Ganesha ensures that one is no longer attached to the dramatic performance process, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters.

One's ability to enjoy and produce entertainments and expressions of creative intelligence = both unlimited and unimportant.

It is relatively easy to achieve the role of king, queen, or celebrity.

Yet ironically because of the absence of ego-attachment one rarely clings to the validating results of winning games and getting applause.

  • Celebrity comes and celebrity goes.

There is a sense of "been there, done that" which is quite apathetic and detached even when the relative absence of obstacles has eased the process of expressing Divine brilliance and creating amusements .

In Simha, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Ravi-like political, theatrical, literary and genius characteristics.

Similar to Ketu in bhava-5, but less specific detail. Depends absolutely on how Professor Surya functions in the overall nativity.

  • Pucci Prints 1914-1992 fashion Emilio Pucci wandered through many lands briefly. Ketu in Bhava-4 schooling. When EP was an international student in the USA in the 1930's, his scholarship funds were cut off [Ketu] by Italy's Fascist government. By the time he entered Chandra-Rahu bhukti age 23, EP was completely broke [Ketu] and had to wash dishes to pay for his tuition. Ketu-Singha-4 afflicts political [Simha] nationalism (4). During WW-2, EP was injured while flying a bombing mission and abandoned [Ketu] upon the goat-island of Capri. Later he was forced to escape [Ketu] from Italy after being tortured by the Gestapo. Surya-7 in 4th-from-4th = 4th-from-Ketu has an anchoring effect, which prevents Ketu from annihilating EP during the terrible war years. His flourishing garment business was later based on the island of Capri.

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

  • One is drawn by [akashic memory]

  • into the worlds of creative arts, theater and politics,

  • where one may mingle with royalty and celebrities as one used to do in a previous life;

  • Yet, in the current life, the thrill of applause and attention is long gone.

When occupying Simha rashi, Ketu may blunt the divine intelligence of Sun, clouding the perception with ambivalence about creative ego-expression in general and about assuming theatrical, regal, attention-getting roles in particular.

Consistent with Ketu's passive-aggressive style, this native is prone to criticizing the politics of others and trying to undermine claims that the Divine is working through others. The whole business of channeling Divine intelligence seems empty and suspect; yet one ironically may be thrust deep into political life; an attitude of cynicism And whiny frustration may result.

One is drawn by [akashic memory] into the worlds of theatre and politics, where one may mingle with celebrities as one used to do in a previous life; Yet, in the current life, the thrill of applause and attention is long gone.

Ketu + Surya in svakshetra may yield a creative genius who expresses unworldly sounds and color. Past-lives associated with cult of the Sun-priest; they have been sacrificed and although they love the celebrity they are Naturally, wary of abuse of power.
