Ketu in Bhava-5 [scattered hierarchical intelligence] [disengaged witness to institutional politics] [liberated from displays of rank] [disregard for the drama of empty status]


Ketu in Bhava-6

Ketu in Bhava-7

Ketu in Bhava-8 * no barriers to occult

Ketu in Bhava-9 * scatters sacred doctrine

Ketu in Bhava-10 * anarchy; apathy toward governing hierarchy

Ketu in Bhava-11 * disperses earnings, scatters friendship networks

Ketu in Bhava-12 * scattered barriers spiritual guidance

Ketu-Makara-Draco * formally dissociates from strict regulations * dissolves caste hierarchy * meaningless rules * vacuous laws * walks away from social authority positions * severance from executive roles * not limited by public protocol * ignores conventional structure * disregards class barriers * releases a cold blue cloud of institutional order into the misty abyss

Ketu-Makara the Stone Pulverizer provides the mode of release from the rigid hierarchies of Draco.

Ketu-Draco offers the nebulizing capabilities of Scattered Resistance to elite hierarchies and institutional governance. Yet matters of Makara can become incoherent (don't stick together) when Ketu the Releaser occupies the Endadriz rashi.

Ketu represents surrender, Islam. Ketu surrenders to whatever experience is provided. In Makara-Draco, Ketu surrenders to the flow of

  • regulated, orderly, hierarchical, ranked and step-wise institutions of government and large corporations.

Thus if the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the regulatory structures (Shani, rules) one may perform as a hierophant at high levels of hierarchical respect and executive authority.

Dissociative Ketu ensures that one is no longer attached to the governing experience, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters.

One's ability to impose law and order is both unlimited and unimportant.

It is relatively easy to achieve the role of top director or president.

Yet ironically because of the absence of ego-attachment one is unlikely to believe that matters of bureaucratic policy and public legislation are relevant to lasting life success.

There is a sense of ennui, 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 respected rank and professional position .

In Makara, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Shani-like law-enforcing, conservative characteristics. Similar to Ketu in bhava-10, but less specific detail. Depends absolutely on how Professor Shani functions in the overall nativity.

Ketu = been there, done that parallel life pull

One is drawn by [akashic memory]

into the worlds of executive leadership,

where one may mingle with elite rulers as one used to do in a previous life;

Yet, in the current life, the thrill of climbing to high social rank is long gone. The mind turns often to philosophical musings.

Despite basic competence in matters of social governance, the materialistic focus becomes scattered.

However, due to Rahu-Karkata, an ambitious mother may keep pushing for higher roles.

  • Harmonices Mundi 1571-1630 Johannes Kepler * Shukra-yuti-Ketu * his mother was a major force in his life. Kepler earned almost as much notoriety for defending her in a prolonged court case -- thus changing the understanding of magical disease in Europe -- (Rahu-6 litigation) as he did from his scientific achievements. Despite the modest social circumstances of his childhood, Mom pushed him forward via argumentation both legal and scientific. Chandra-4 rules Rahu-6. Ketu-12 helped him open to intuitive guidance during his night-time researches.

  • POTUS-05 Monroe Doctrine 1758-1831 James Monroe

  • POTUS-20 Universal Education 1831-1881 James Garfield [nīcha-Guru-yuti-Ketu] mom was ambitious, capable widowed then divorced (taboo-breaker)

  • Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin [Uttara-ashadha-2][Somana-yuti-Ketu]

  • Esoteric Astrology 1925-2005 Jyotishavidya Bepin Behari * Budha-yuti-Shukra + Surya-yuti-Ketu

  • India-PM 1944-1991 Rajivaratna Gandhi

  • Satyagraha 1869-1948 Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi

  • UK-PM Path to Power 1925-2013 Margaret Thatcher * Samka KSY (3)

  • POTUS-11 Manifest Destiny 1795-1849 James Knox Polk + nichha Guru

  • POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter * Miss Lillian

  • USA-Congress 1943- Newt Gingrich * defender-support mom was his loudest cheerleader

  • Basic Instinct 1944- drama-commerce Michael Douglas (12)

  • Fashion design 1981- real-estate Ivanka Trump serves in an untitled role in her father's POTUS-45 administration. More than three years after undertaking this vague assignment, her portfolio and remuneration remained unclear [Ketu].

Ketu-Makara = blunts the hierarchical, caste sensitivities of Shani. One may become taciturn without benefit of realism, and expecting protection from the hierarchy without knowledge of or commitment to one's position in that hierarchy.

In general scattered Ketu is problematic in rashi of structured Shani where practical good sense is necessary for basic survival on the material plane.

Ketu-Makara-Draco = inadvertently egalitarian due to their inability to locate their caste/social class identity. They can bring much distributive justice into the world ironically due to their fundamental confusion about their proper level in the social hierarchy.

  • Mad Monk 1869-1916 Romanov Grigori Rasputin + Surya-yuti-Budha hailed from the peasant classes. As a Ketuish floater with little resistance to hierarchy barriers, he was able to gain a place in the Russian royal court. He advocated (Ketu-7 + Surya-yuti-Budha) for the loyal peasantry as the greatest asset of the Tsar and seemed unimpressed by the pretenses of the royal lineages.

Ketu-Makara = wonderful position for truly spiritualized (non-attached) social leaders or for the wandering mendicant who takes physical sustenance from temples and government rationing programs.
