nebulous doctrine

foggy theory

abstract ideology

unclear symbolism

Ketu-Dhanus provides the ease of No Resistance to global travel, teacher-preacher roles, and to the limitations imposed by one's paradigmatic beliefs. Yet matters of Dhanus can become incoherent (don't stick together) when Ketu the Releaser occupies the Sarasana rashi.

Ketu represents surrender = Islam. Ketu surrenders to whatever experience is provided.

  • In Dhanus-Haya, Ketu the Releaser surrenders to the flow of humanistic education in philosophy and religion, priesthood, professorship, fatherhood, and the wisdom of the guru.

If the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the preaching energies (Guru, religion) one may perform at high levels of ritual ceremony and theological pontification .

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

It is relatively easy to achieve the pontifical roles. One easily assumes the imagery of a celebrant of those public rites which connect the human world with the divine world.

Yet ironically because of the scattering of ego-attachment one is unlikely to believe that matters of philosophical truth are important. Truth comes and truth 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 developing a inclusive [Guru] social philosophy and more tolerant moral law .

There is also a minority outcome of Rahu is Dhanus which is insanity due to unsatisfied desire for children.

In wisdom-paradigm Dhanavana, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Guru-like teaching characteristics. Similar to Ketu in bhava-9, but less specific detail. Depends absolutely on how Lord Brihaspati functions in the overall nativity.

Ketu the Forgiver = been there, done that parallel life pull

  • A weakened separator-membrane suggests that one is drawn into one's own Other-world Lives

  • into the worlds of global wisdom teachings, university professing, temple preaching, and astral travel

  • may lift out of the fleshbody even in a wakened state; day-dreamer

  • where one may mingle with professors, priests, proselytes, and preachers, as one used to do in a previous life;

  • Yet, in the current life, the thrill of universal philosophy and its discourse is long gone.

When occupying Dhanus rashi, Ketu may blunt the sensitivities of Jupiter. Ketu-Dhanus can feel ambivalent about the reality of fundamental goodness, world family, All-One, and other blessings of the Divine which penetrate the veil of our human sadness and bring spiritual light into human lives.

Ketu-Dhanus may feel curmudgeonly, unable to recognize the value of philosophy, religion, or charity. He tends toward atheism and survival-of-the-fittest market economics. He dislikes group activities and does not celebrate holidays. He is not a lot of fun. Yet, Ketu with svakshetra Guru may produce a genius of world humanitarian systems.

Detachment from religion and even from humanism may be a good thing when looking objectively at what can be done to advance humanity's situation on the global scale. It may be clarifying to be free of idealistic, ideological attachment when constructing comprehensive world visions.

Such a humorless, morally ambivalent viewpoint may be entirely accurate, valid, and - unlike value-charged future projections based on religious tenet - may actually work.

Detached from Dogma

[Ketu in Bhava-1] May be a renunciate, seeking expedient alliances. Rahu-7 brings powerful peers, advisors, advocates, attorneys, deal-makers, partners.

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru [defensive Mula-4] [Guru-yuti-Ketu]

  • Old Path White Clouds 1926-2022 Interbeing Thich Nhat Hanh [ministering Pūrvāṣāḍhā-2] . A celibate monk, Thay nevertheless formed some purposeful partnerships with like-minded colleagues [Rahu-7]. For example, he formed a bond of collaborative friendship with USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King

  • POTUS-pair-39 Caregiving 1927- Rosalynn Smith Carter [Ketu in champion-pioneering Mūla-1] tireless advocate for the social support of disconnected populations, including incarcerated, addicted, mentally-ill, and other disengaged incarnations.

[Ketu in Bhava-2]

  • POTUS-pair-44 Let's Move 1964- Michelle Robinson Obama [ministering Pūrvāṣāḍhā-2] [Ketu-yuti-Budha] MRO earned a Harvard Law School diploma which would have nearly guaranteed a substantial treasury. A Viśākha wife, MRO chose to focus on politics, specifically her husband Barak Obama 's political leadership quest. As a result, she stepped away from the potentially high personal monies. Nevertheless, her Dhanayoga caused by Budha-2-rules-11 would enrich whether one was focused on wealth or not.

[Ketu in Bhava-4]

  • Faith 1963-2016 singer-songwriter George Michael [inspirational Uttarāṣāḍha-1]

[Ketu in Bhava-5]

  • My Fair Lady 1908-1990 musical theatre Rex Harrison * the entertainment tabloids framed RH as a callous, unfaithful heartbreaker, responsible for at least one suicide of a lover. All six of his wives and likely all of his lovers were in the theatre business. Although Ketu-5 did not harm RCH's on-stage abilities, his acting was said to lack concern for others on the set. RCH's many divorces and romantic promiscuities shaped his fame [Ketu-5 fame].

[Ketu in Bhava-6]

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler + [secretive-explosive Pūrvāṣāḍhā-4] + [Mūla-Chandra-yuti-Guru]

  • Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro * his planned economy failed, but FC was not concerned with the miserable consequences of poverty and exploitation (6) for his citizens. Rather, FC blamed a non-existent enemy (Ketu-6) and focused on maintaining his power .

  • Seven Year Itch 1926-1962 Marilyn Monroe [secretive Pūrvāṣāḍhā-4] married and divorced three times before the age of 36, MM's relationship history was marked by absence and disorientation.
