" Discovered by British astronomer William Herschel over 200 years ago, NGC 2500 lies about 30 million light-years away in the northern constellation of Lynx. As this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows, NGC 2500 is a particular kind of spiral galaxy known as a barred spiral, its wispy arms swirling out from a bright, elongated core.

Barred spirals are actually more common than was once thought. Around two-thirds of all spiral galaxies — including the Milky Way — exhibit these straight bars cutting through their centers. ...

There is another similarity between NGC 2500 and our home galaxy. Together with Andromeda, Triangulum and many smaller natural satellites, the Milky Way is part of the Local Group of galaxies, a gathering of over 50 galaxies all loosely held together by gravity. ....

Collapsing Ketu-Kumbha provides the ease of No Resistance to the distributive economies of large groups and systems. Yet matters of Kumbha can become incoherent (don't stick together) when Ketu the Releaser occupies the Ghata rashi.

Detachment from massive systems.

Ketu represents surrender, Islam. Ketu surrenders to whatever experience is provided. In Kumbha-Ghata , Ketu surrenders to scattering of:

  • massive, highly regulated, distributive, lateral systems; mass social movements; material and conceptual networks .

If the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the networking energies (Shani, systems and economies) Ketu-Kumbha may perform at high levels of connectedness and marketplace skill.

Professor Ketu ensures that one is no longer attached to the mass movement experience, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters. Ketu-Kumbha's ability to systematize the large-scale behaviors of groups in the marketplace is both unlimited and unimportant.

It is relatively easy to achieve the role of gainful earner, social activist or economic regulator. Yet ironically because of the absence of ego-attachment one is unlikely to invest much attention into matters of scientific experimentation or lateral distributive connectivity.

  • Goals come and goals go in a scatter-shot fashion.

  • profits come and profits go in a scatter-shot fashion.

  • friendships come and friendships go in a scatter-shot fashion.

Ketu signifies an apathetic sense of "been there, done that" detached even when the relative absence of obstacles has eased the process of achieving better distribution of economic opportunity and more efficient networking of any system.

In Kumbha, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Shani-like networking characteristics. Similar to Ketu in bhava-11, 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 large, rule-driven systems and social movements which increase the distribution of economic opportunity

  • where one may mingle with social change activists and experimental scientists As one used to do in a previous life

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

When occupying Kumbha rashi, Ketu may blunt the populist, democratizing sensitivities of Saturn, making the native ambivalent about his role in the marketplace.

Kumbha is in general a highly abstract sign, famous for its esoteric theories and special interest groups which have little connection to the survival reality of the global population yet purport to be universal in nature.

  • Kumbha is the solar or rational side of Shani's domain, concerned primarily with equalizing exchange networks of the marketplace not with the emotional security of fixed caste [Makara].

  • Ketu here gives reluctance to participate in networks of association and dislike of the masses.

Ketu-Kumbha has been traumatized in revolutionary political movements, perhaps an uprising against royalty, which creates in his a compulsory disengagement from political activism and group-think in all its visages.

Ketu-Kumbha = a science-fiction Ketu_amethyst.jpgorientation with a mind that wanders across the universe in search of a culture weird enough and 'safe' enough but also familiar enough to identity with.

Might be a gifted sci-fi script writer or mathematician or computer programmer if Budha is strong.

Otherwise, seeks anonymity and intellectual distance through cold logic. Could live in isolation and socialize exclusively via computer networks. Very detached person.
