Earnings can be high or low, depending upon Ketu's ruler and incoming drishti.
Friendships may be many or few, depending upon Ketu's ruler and incoming drishti.
Lingers at the edges of social-participation movements with scattered focus, unable to sustainably connect.
May wander through ecologies, economies, voluntary associations, and futuristic gatherings with a fuzzy sense of purpose, unclear on the aims and goals of the group .
Unless the ruler is well-supported, community gridworks tend toward dissolution. Collective coherence is prone to collapse.
Although Ketu typically produces His karaka dissociative results, Graha-yuti-Ketu  may permit Ketu Periods of the Vimshottari Dasha calendar to produce the results of His co-tenant.
Check incoming drishti into Ketu-11.
Check 11th-from-Chandra for emotionally comfortable ways of profitably socializing which may compensate the evacuating patterns of friendship-abandoning Ketu-11.
Apathetic Akasha-11 tends to unravel the interlinked marketplace networks.
Friendships may flame up, then die-in-the-sky, like a comet [Ketu].
Yet, the passionate, opposite force of Rahu in bhava-5 tends to infuse the unique, individual ideals with deep craving for over-reaching dramatic romance.
Extraordinary children, personal politics, and heart-rending love-affairs may be intense.
power-vacuum in the natural areas of link-structure Shani
Scattered Ketu's weak psychic boundaries create difficulty to achieve, obtain, maintain, or retain connection to
dissolving enthusiasm for goals
sees the weaknesses in the economic profit system
Ketu in the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra = disconnected from elder siblings
indecisively unable to make up the mind in matters of economic earnings, goals, material achievement, friendships
Collapsing Ketu diffuses, scatters, nebulizes matters of His residential bhava.
Professor Ketu teaches on the topics of liberation from fixed form, freedom from conventional limitations, dispersal of burdens, and spiritual wandering.
Effects of Ketu include wandering in cloud-form (nebula) and unsettled, liberated behavior in the bhava.
Ketu grants the passive benefits of freedom-from , not the active benefits of freedom-to
anaphasic (incomplete pulse)
Rahu-5 feels passion for the lover and children but Ketu the guillotine in 11 feels apathetic and dispersed in regard to friendships with equals (11). Unless there are other graha in 5-11, Ketu-11 often signifies a talented dramatist, politician, or celebrity figure with few real friends.
Eccentric elder sibling of the native or odd paternal sibling.
Ketu in the 11th bhava affects relationships in the social network , the marketplace of goods and ideas, one's marketplace revenue and ability to achieve goals.
Ketu-11 = Typically, a poor mixer in groups, with reduced social skills for normal socializing; however is often a splendid stage performer in center-of-attention roles, due to Rahu in 5.
Reduces the number of voluntary friends (11) but increases the number of romances and children (5).
Membership in Communities (11) of monastics, ego-detached, mystics, wanderers
Disregard for economics , or a rather peculiar system of earnings and marketplace distribution.
Often detachment amounting to confusion in regard to income whether large or small in amount. Typically, a scattering of the earnings. Income can be large because Ketu allows no barriers (in 11, no barriers to earnings) Yet eventually, Ketu scatters all unless there are other graha in 11 yuti Ketu or casting more sensible drishti into the vriddhisthāna-11.
May be swindled by undependable friends.
Ketu produces overall materially favorable results in 3 and 6. Some benefits in 10 and 11 which are related more to relaxation. Aids in non-caring about pressures of high position or high earnings.
Tends to surrender one's friends. May abandon connection to the social network.
Feels that socially progressive goals and human communities are merely a mirage .
However, there is always an upside with Ketu that one has few boundaries in community matters, and this can help create connections to people who you would not normally mix with but who can indeed help you to achieve your goals (11).
One feels considerable apathy toward completing the tasks which produce social connection. Little interest in the elder sibling, the father's brother, even school friends seem dull or unapproachable.
Native may suffer the effects of flaky, inconsistent, or unreliable friends if one has any at all. Yet one will know the benefits of detached independence from community pressures and freedom from constant attention to marketplace relationships.
Extremely compassionate toward humanity as a whole, and may express that compassion in social activism for "causes " if the Lord is a strong benefic.
Ironically and simultaneously, one is disconnected from the immediate society of friends.
Few long-term friends. Standoffish , abandons [Ketu] friendships (11) on pretext.
If there is incoming drishti from a malefic especially Shani, can signal chronic financial problems due to apathy toward marketplace conditions
The elder sibling, and such friends as one does have = Ketu-ish, peculiar, eccentric, odd. Because vriddhi-bhava-11 also represents the 5th marriage, one who enjoys five marriages having Ketu in the 11th bhava will note that the 5th spouse = Ketu-ishly distant and sexually disengaged .
Fails to grasp the expectations of long-term association and lasting friendship.
Very odd choice of personal associates.
Would rather socialize with people they barely know or in whose friendship the native is not interested.
Fundamental psychological expectation of abandonment and rejection by one's friendship network * Ketu = abandonment, desertion, chidrakaraka*
Detached from the personal goal-setting process but will try to promote goals for huge, impersonal groups.
Ambivalence toward investing in Shared Group Goals = social participation movements
Apathetic toward extended community relationships and toward conventional means of gaining income.
Peculiar, erratic, and periodically abundant stream of income + some odd, detached, possibly clairsentient friends if Ketu's lord is strong. However, one remains dissatisfied with the friendship network.
Signal of the "frenemy" - well-wishers who are not.Ketu-11 may face networking challenges, including perceived lack of support from peers. However, this perceived deficiency is very correctable via Seva and reflection.
The reflection part involves making sure that one's goals are sympathetically aligned to the shared group goals.
This isn't easy or natural due to Ketu's characteristic detachment from all material undertakings, but it is possible. If one can spiritualize [Ketu] the ultimate goals of the group to extend benefit to as wide a network as possible.
If one can conceptualize all of the people who may be benefitted by your labors and see this large network being invested with your personal energy, then the psychic presentation will radiate positive commitment.
Ketu-11 tends to be somewhat isolated from mundane social parties and earthly friendships but Ketu-11 aligns well with Bodhisattva goals.
Unable to ego-attach to matters of income via salary or from marketplace investments, the elder brother and his affairs, socially progressive movements, scientific systems. Tends to surrender or give away one's sources of income.
Apathetic toward the needs and interests of The elder siblings (exception = Chandra, Shukra, or another attachment graha is present in 11). Disconnected from the conditions of death generally. Occult knowledge becomes the means to an end.
Connections to large social networks are merely an expedient means to an ulterior purpose of increasing political power. One is not truly attached to the friends.
Collapsing Ketu 's // witness viewpoint // on economic systems is apathetic. Friends are acquired according to Ketu's ruler. The real desires are expressed via Rahu-5's reptilian trajectory into a seductively captivating [Rahu] charismatically intelligent (5) political or theatrical quest for Self in center-stage.
Broad awareness of the behavior of large populist assemblies, and many occasions during bhukti of Ketuva especially to observe mass movements.
The external facade of one's internally disconnected relationship to social change movements is a blank screen which can reflect the collective unconscious.
The inherent lack of mutual engagement with distributive social systems will be known to very few observers. Folks may attribute great happiness and success therefore to The exponent of a progressive ideology which is essentially hollow .
Due to Ketu's apathy it may be easy for the native to overly abstract or dehumanize large-scale social movements and marketplace regulations. Not believing that economic systems have much substance, one may deny the importance of marketplace forces upon individual survival.
Ketu in bhava 11 = economic systems; gainfulness
Rahu in bhava 5 = politics; celebrity; creative genius
Scattering behavior may give an incoherent network of friendship, or a scatter-shot pattern of setting and achieving one's material goals.
Unreliable friends. Networks of association disperse for no obvious reason. Income vacillates.
dissolves goals, achievements, social networks, marketplace associations.
Surrenders unsustainable friendships. Abandoned by unsuitable friends.
Often polarizing catalysis from the company one keeps due to weak psychic boundaries . A demanding king or queen; extremely self-performance oriented;"lives for the stage" .
Friendships of voluntary association, the elder sibling, and the father's relatives are not a healthy influence.
The community consists of those who praise and applaud one's performance; who adore the native; especially one's own worshipful and adoring children. Rahu is so strong in 5 that community-development or large-scale (11) social participation movements may seem insincere or"staged" . (Although the engagement may indeed be sincere if there are visible graha in 11).
Polarizing catalysis related to getting along with people. Indiscriminate definition of community. Does not prefer some associations over others. Not selective or preferential - treats everyone equally well or equally badly, depending upon the graha which control Ketu.
" Community" (11) is perceived only on a global or cosmic scale, such as the community of all beings in the universe. Homework-problems of detachment and disregard [Ketu] toward friendship (11) = exacerbated by Rahu's intense desire to hold the celebrated, royal, brilliant center in a dazzling dramatic performance (5).
As the broad network of friendships is generally scattered, one tends to invest much more ambition into the promotion of children and glamorous or dramatic performance roles (Rahu 5).
Ketu-11 = normally politicians-performers who can be passionate about children (Rahu-5) but seem to have rather few reliable, long-term friends. (Strong drishti to 11 can improve the cohesion of the network.)
[Ketu in Bhava-11] [favorable placement] = busts-up, scatters the friendship network; nebulizes the material gains. Disperses attachment to goals and gains in this life; eliminates conventional social restrictions on amount and methods of obtaining material gains and marketplace income (11)
Ketu does not alter the effects of the ruler of bhava-11. If profitability is there due to a healthy and sensible vriddhi-pati-11 , Ketu leaves the material income intact.
However Ketu will not act to increase or develop the networks of association which are channeling the income.
Ketu-11 prefers to participate in networks of friendship with highly eccentric individuals, spiritualized alternative practitioners, organizations of peculiar persons, and other groups of disconnected or disoriented souls.
Ketu-11 feels detached from matters of social networking and marketplace behavior. The chidrakaraka may attend large gatherings but during the connective event one may feel a profound sense of disconnection from the group.
The elder sibling may be mentally ill, or an advanced spiritual practitioner. Puja to Shri Ganesha will calm the mind and welcome the native into membership in other-worldly associations.
Detached from earnings , whether spectacular or picayune
Rahu-Ketu perform well in bhava 3, 6, 10, and 11.
Ketu in 11 does not prevent financial gain; in fact if vriddhi-pati-11 is strong, Ketu's scattered, indiscriminate style may be associated with significant material gain.
Yet even if there is spectacular income produced by a powerful lord of labhasthāna, the native is attached to neither the method nor the amount of earnings.
Either Rahu-11 or Ketu-11 can produce wealth; but Rahu is greatly attached to the materials gains as a self-elevating ladder for social ascendance; while"scattershot" Ketu has no targeted aim and Ketu needs no ladder.
Seems to get along with everyone, but in truth one's interests lie outside the group, in the great cosmos.
May be an"impractical" but visionary thinker with peculiar ideas about the marketplace of goods, ideas, and services. If Ketu is well supported, one may defy practical business common sense (Ketu has almost no common sense!) and locate a marketplace that no one knew was there.
Self-sufficient by default. Often disappointed in one's friends, and tends to pine for a communal lifestyle (11) while being often not enough responsible in community to remain welcome in collectivities.
Calves (lower Legs) = (Kumbha, 11)
Potential for hollowness or emptiness of the calves (11) or embodied nerve network (11) via accident or injury when Ketu the Undefended receives harsh drishti which signals a ghostly attack.
Longwalks which vigorously exercise the calves may generate psychic"hearing" .
Vimshottari period s of Ketu
During Ketu bhukti of any mahadasha and acutely during the Ketu-Ketu svabhukti, one born with Ketu in labha bhava may have a hopeless feeling that the elder sibling, gains of income, material goals, friendships and community connections (11) are slipping away for reasons that seem out of your control .
This Ketu-Bhukti feeling of being a drifting spectator toward the conditions labha-bhava within one's own life may be even more profound when either Chandra or the indriya-lagna occupy a Nakshatra of Ketuva = Aśvini, Magha - Regulus, or Mula - Nirṛti.
Long-term materialized goal-achievement = dispersed by doubt WRT one's Ability to connect
However Ketu-11 does not normally harm the income. One is sociable enough to earn, sometimes very well indeed.
One's connection to the source of friendship is somehow severed.
Gifted in marketplace transactions of goods and ideas, yet one has no attachment to income or the success of one's ideological cause.
Income fluctuates; Yet, the native is always willing to return to the marketplace of goods and ideas, to try a new approach toward building community.
One who is friendly toward all but who has no close friends.
Apathetic or detached toward the complex relationships of the marketplace, toward gains, income, profits, networks, large social groups of friends, community, elder sibling, conceptual and electro-mechanical networks, assemblies, secular fellowship, loss of privacy, conferences and gatherings
Long-term material success is inhibited by doubt WRT one's ability to connect with large social and conceptual networks.
Regardless of how one is really handling large assemblies and marketplace connections, the native can passively reflect the goal achievement image of the psychic projections of the collective unconscious.
" No barriers " Ketu connects the native to the experiences of His house through direct intuition. No analysis, no cultural filters. In bhava-11, the experience is achieving goals through networks of association in the agora.
Karaka for "falling in the assembly" .
natural challenger papagraha tend, over time, to produce comfortable and pleasing results in upachaya houses (3, 6, 10, 11).
Marginalized by the ideological or scientific regulatory establishment.
Dissatisfaction, ambivalence and uncertainty
regarding social, conceptual, and electronic networking as well as material Achievements and gains .
Depending on Ketu's lord, one may have perfectly competent networking skills or ability to set and achieve important material goals -- but one is prone toward emptiness of motivation to exercise these skills.
Peculiarities of the skin and nerves characterize by lapse, collapse, evacuation, aborted signal-exchange. Chidrakaraka Ketu breaks the circuit.
Recommended to protect the skin and the nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic) from psychic incursion of grief, due to an ineffable sense of loss .
Resistance to validation through earnings, profits, and successful goal achievement; The elder sibling And spouse of the eldest child seem distant and unconnected to one's essential self.
QUOTATION Das commentary of Ketu in bhava-11
" ... strengths of being learned, well dressed, attractive
You are considered powerful in society, but you have an unknown fear nagging at your mind.
Success and gain from all sources.
Very fortunate , learned, handsome, strongly built, well-dressed and very glorious.
Your off-spring are unfortunate and suffer from fear and danger.
You are reputed, charming , of a happy-go-lucky nature, house and property, affluent, generous, skilled in aesthetics and archery.
ailments of rectum, tension;
generous, kind, popular,
fond of literature, contented, respected by leader types .
At times you will have undesirable associates,
Look to Ketu ruled periods for some of these negativities."
Q: with Ketu in 11, sometimes I wonder if my friends are sincere.
A: True friendship is forged while connecting with each other in a unified effort to proceed through difficult circumstances (Shani, natural regulator of 11) .
Ensure that your friendship network does not become a merely circumstantial, instrumental, or expedient part of your life.
Apathetic, detached Ketu would unfortunately allow that dissolution of integrity in the friendships if some other stronger force does not prevent it. Find that stronger, more loyal, more committed force to glue your friendships into your heart.
Is your friend at work who could smooth your promotion really your friend? Well, ask yourself: would you value and cultivate his company if there was no possible wealth advantage to be gained from the friendship.
Do you sincerely value the mutual support and camaraderie? Do you feel the loyalty and attachment similar to that traditionally granted to one's elder brother (11) or father's younger brother (11)?
The relevant [akashic memory patterning] can be corrected through targeted Seva serving those who need help to formulate their goals and to appreciate the role that social structures, friends, and mentors play in the goal-achievement process.
