Ketu-Tula provides the ease of No Resistance to pairing, parity, partnership, agreements, equity, equality, balance.

Keturepresents surrender. Ketu surrenders to whatever data is provided. In Tula - Vanika, Ketu surrenders to the experience of negotiation, facilitation, alliance-building, contract-making, matching and pairing.

If the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the harmonizing energies (Shukra, sweetness) one may exhibit high levels of bargaining, designing and diplomatic skill.

Shri Ganesha ensures that one is no longer attached to the partnership experience, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters. One's ability to yoke and pair is both unlimited and unimportant.

Ketu-Tula = relatively easy to achieve and hold the role of partner, negotiator, or mediator. Yet ironically because of the absence of ego-attachment-desire one is unlikely to believe that one's success in matters of match-making or dispute resolution is terribly important. Capable but disengaged.

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 establishing alliances and achieving a balanced, mediated state .

In Tula, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Shukra-like design and balance characteristics. Similar to Ketu in bhava-7, but less specific detail. Depends absolutely on how Professor Bright Beautiful Bhrigu functions in the overall nativity.

Ketu = "been there, done that"

parallel life pull

Ketu-Tula is drawn by [akashic memory] into into the worlds of diplomacy and deal-making,

  • where one may mingle with match-makers, designers, attorneys, brokers and agreement-crafters as one used to do in a previous life;

  • Yet, in the current life, the thrill of bargaining is long gone.

  • it is a matter of broadly dispersing the alliances, like particles of dust in a huge dust-cloud

When occupying Tula rashi, Ketu may blunt the designing, arranging, and architectural sensitivities of Venus, encouraging a degree of ambivalence about balance and design, and thwarting the relationship management skills.

Ketu-Tula = natural balance, fairness, and justice = lost in a fog; one may err in judgment on matters of social equity and personal balance.

This is not precisely selfishness but rather a blunted awareness regarding the effect that one's actions have upon the welfare of others.

  • POTUS-22-24 Interstate Commerce 1837-1908 Grover Cleveland + [uchcha-Shani-yuti-Ketu-5, children] Although a huge scandal was brewing after a journalist exposed GC's unwed fatherhood, the child's mother was disappeared" [Ketu] into a mental asylum. Due to this action by GC's political handlers, his reputation was somewhat repaired.

In bhava-7, a 'double whammy' of cluelessness about the effect of one's behavior upon others.

Polite manners which are customary to one's culture may evade one's understanding.

  • It is possible as a result to be disliked, considered unaesthetic, badly dressed, or somehow an icon of poor taste in one's society.

  • In situations where polite negotiation of meaning or negotiation of identity is required, one may lacks the grace [Tula] to introduce oneself properly which serves to help the other party feel balanced in one's company.

  • Despite a calm appearance, one may be internally ill-at-ease.

Ketu yuti Shukra-svakshetra may produce a genius of unorthodox costume design, or an avant-garde style in arts or theatre.

The result of disturbance in the natural balance of things may be awkward but it might also be interesting - at least temporarily.
