  • Rahu located in 7th-from-Chandra suggests an extraordinary lifepartnership with a mate who can utilize one's emotional absentee qualities for their own purposes. Lifemate may appear as an extraordinary, fascinating, or over-reaching personality. The core partnership / first marriage / tends to bend [or break] taboo proscriptions regarding age, gender, status, or class demographics.

  • although the parents may supply all necessary material-social support, typically emotions are not fluently shared and the child may suffer a lack of emotional literacy.

  • Mom may be lack empathy

  • Mom may feel exhausted due to lack of emotional reserves

Attachment [Chandra] + Detachment [Ketu]

Restlessness, often stimulating travel. Rarely confrontational, while nevertheless wary of involvement with emotional commitment.

One may experience a profound but likely unrecognized anxiety WRT remaining in a grounded location [such as home, farm, or school] or staying attached to a parental-role person [such as a co-parent, or one's own parent].

Nevertheless, Rahu in 7th-from-Chandra brings fascinating, boundary-challenging partners. Opportunistic, ambitious lifepartner (s) often permit considerable coming-and-going.

Nota Bene

Detachment increased when Chandra occupies nakshatra of Ketu (Aśvini, Magha, Mula)

before declaring any results for Chandra-yuti-Ketu, look for compensating strengths via other rhythmic, routinized, comfort-seeking, psycho-emotional indicators

Most of the dehumanizing potential is corrected via 7th drishti incoming from Guru

  • ruler of Chandra's nakshatra

  • ruler of Chandra's rashi

  • Chandra's bhava of residence and its ruler

  • role of Karkata-rashi within the nativity

  • characteristics of the bandesha (ruler of bhava-4)

additional graha yuti Ketu

  • Pope-264 John-Paul-II 1920-2005 Karol Wojtyla [Somana-yuti-Shukra] + [Budha-yuti-Ketu] (5) cluster of Chandra-Ketu-Budha-Shukra indicates emotional complexity of the ethnic identity, the parents, nationalism, relationships with women [Shukra] and sensitive conversations especially with young people [Budha]. Detachment from the strong feelings of others may aid objectivity in psychically charged situations. Wojtyla gained a reputation for calm wisdom in traumatic war and post-war guidance roles. His ability to take a step back from the drama - while still listening and responding - was helped by Chandra-yuti-Ketu emotional detachment.

Somana-yuti-Ketu personality may seem contradictory, mismatched, or perplexing

Chandra-yuti-Ketu may seem simultaneously

  • familiar [Chandra] and incoherent [Ketu]

  • secure [Chandra] and unconnected [Ketu]

  • caring [Chandra] and apathetic [Ketu]

  • protective [Chandra] and unavailable [Ketu]

  • adhering to the ethnic customs [Chandra] and disoriented [Ketu]

  • parental [Chandra] and absent [Ketu]

An adolescent narrative of liberation from parental control may persist throughout the lifetime.

Ambivalence WRT adult parenting duties. Prolonged absences from home [Ketu] may be framed as expressions of providing for the household [Chandra].

Depending upon the bhava, Ketu the Wanderer may encourage a certain /localized rootlessness/ [Chandra local, Ketu rootless] .

One may use watercraft [Chandra] as a means of escape from home routines, for example /going fishing/ or embarking on long sailing trips.


traumatized, disoriented, wandering mother-figure may emotionally [not physically, usually] abandon the children.

As an adult, one may be challenged by a narcissistic defense mechanism in order to prevent the ever-hovering psychological threat of abandonment [Ketu-Vrischika threat of separation].

[Ketu-Vṛścika ] yuti [Chandra in Vṛścika-nīcha]

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump [fantasizing-charitable Jyeṣṭha-4] [nīcha-Chandra-yuti-Ketu] [5-entertainment, politics, pageants, ceremonial display]

  • Green Mile 1947- horror-fiction Stephen King [rhythmic-protective Punarvasu-4] + [nīcha-Chandra-yuti-Guru] [5, creative literature, celebrity, entitlements, financial speculation]

  • USA-Sen-Utah 1947- finance Mitt Romney [arranging, deal-making Anuradha-3] + [nicha-Chandra-yuti-Guru] ; [7, legal contracts, negotiation, arrangements]


Once the compensating strengths have been assessed, expect to find Ketu's influence (in varying amounts) within the typical Chandra-related fields of behavior

  • generally, unconstrained [Ketu] by emotional perceptions such as empathy, sympathy
  • emotionally unavailable
  • indifferent to the mother and her needs
  • potential for a maternal-abandonment narrative
  • generally, unaffected by agents of customary routines, security, and boundary-defense, such as schoolteachers, parents, border-guards, police, property patrols
  • dissolved boundaries may result in unconstrained emotionally habitual, self-comforting behaviors
  • peculiar rhythms and routines
  • apathetic, dispassionate, observing, witness toward matters of security, ethnic and family culture (
  • emotional disorientation
  • potential for major or minor expressions of attachment-disorder
  • potentially dysmorphic

Chandra + chidrakaraka = beheader Ketu = one may feel (Chandra feelings) segregated, abandoned, sequestered, or cut off from the empathetic, sympathetic, intuitive emotions. One may enjoy relief from the drama of interacting with the feelings of others, via a Zen-style awareness of impermanence.

Chandra-yuti-Ketu = particularly inclined to disregard the conventional sensitivities and cultural boundaries of its bhava and rashi.

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts (Simha-3) used his communications platforms in radio, public talks, and print-books to promote a message of emotional detachment from impermanent conditions, and disregard for creativity [Simha]constraining customary behaviors. Exotic paradigms of belief (Rahu-9) and three marriages.

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem represented a generation of women who would normally have become mothers [Chandra] Yet, they eschewed the customary constraints of motherhood.

  • Methodism 1703-1791 preacher John Wesley [Ketu-Dhanus yuti Chandra in Dhanus] ++ [Mūla] lagna. Late in life, JW married a widow with four children and moved into her home. Yet JW displayed a lack of parental care for the vulnerable little ones. Despite the social criticism that she suffered by abandoning her co-parent JW, the children's mother surrendered her home to JW in order to escape him. Wesley continued wandering [Ketu].

  • In bhava-5 (children) = emotional bonding with children made complex by a pattern of intermittent absences and habitual distancing POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump

Dissolution of Chandra-karaka objects = Property, Housing, Lands, Farms, Fences, Fields, Vehicles, Roadways

  • Russ 1870-1924 Bolshevik Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin - Somana-yuti-Ketu (7) acted to nationalized all money and property in Russia after the 1917 Bolshevik October Revolution. VL felt no attachment to ancestral claims of those who had dwelt on their land for centuries. Rather, he exhibited an emotional compunction to dissolve the existing roots.

Mother-figure may be scattered, apathetic, incoherent, or disoriented.

abandonment by a mother who is distracted by other things happening in the bhava




[bhava-4] Mom tends to be preoccupied with her personal emotional concerns. She may be ; ungrounded. Despite the external appearance of customary upbringing, the native feels deeply abandoned. Mom may walk away from an unsustainable homelife. Schooling is often fragmented.

[bhava-5] Mom tends to be preoccupied with games, romantic idealism, creative performance, financial speculation. Mom's relationship to oneself may be prone to disconnection. Despite the external appearance of entitlement, one may feel deeply apathetic toward matters of politics, drama, pageantry, and children. Mom may walk away from an unsustainable relationship with her unresponsive child. The love life is often fragmented. Enters-and-exits the worlds of games-and-gambling, betting, flamboyant display. Patterns of bankruptcy (financial, moral, emotional) from unsustainable speculations.

[bhava-6] Mom is often disconnected emotionally, overwhelmed by an unsustainable homelife, and often pressed into servitude. She may appear as a powerless, disoriented victim. Often significant mental-health issues for both mother and child.

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler [Mūla]





Mom tends to be preoccupied with her public roles, maintaining social respect, and holding leadership roles. Ironically, mom's public visage = customary home-maker, caretaker. The home-garden-vehicle is usually of showcase quality due to Rahu-4. Mom may be disinterested in the low-respect routines of conventional parenting. Yet, being honored as a mother serves to anchor the elite position.

Particularly for Karkata-indriya-lagna when Chandra-lagnesha occupies 10, the Chandra-yuti-Ketu native may be capable of sustaining leadership in Chandra areas such as land-use, policing, farming, transport, schooling. Yet eventually, one loses interest [Ketu disregard] in executive roles [10] During a Rahu-Ketu bhukti or a bhukti of dharmesha, one may walk away from an unsustainable career.


[bhava-12] Mom may be exceptionally imaginative, delinquent, or distracted. Ketu-12 aids psychic intuition. Mom is retreating, withdrawing, and may exhibit mental-health issues of a dissociative nature. Mom may be isolated or unavailable. Due to the native's innate passivity, the first marriage may be combative. Yet one may be able to successfully use their acclimatization to other-worldly life, since Rahu-6 is a power-placement in medicine, warfare, and crime. Although one is ; emotionally absent, this yoga may aid research, meditation, and private prayer.

  • Homeopathy 1755-1843 Dr. Samuel Hahnemann [Chandra-yuti-Surya] + [Budha-yuti-Ketu] . A brilliant intuitive researcher who could hear the subtle songs (signatures) of healing plant spirits (12) Hahnemann founded the medical tradition of homeopathy. SH also notoriously ignored [Ketu] the pleas of his wife to concern himself with the family's basic needs. SH moved his large family constantly, from one crumbling house to the next [Ketu].


potential for a maternal-abandonment narrative, which can manifest as physical absence of the caretaker-figure. More often it is a subtler form of abandonment signified by emotional unavailability, maternal disconnection or disorientation, or various expressions of attachment-disorder.

  • UK-Duchess of York 1959- Sarah Ferguson [bandesha Somana-yuti-Ketu-12] SF has claimed that her mother was mentally ill and abusive. Mom abandoned her daughters when Sarah was 12. Mom moved from Britain to Argentina for a second marriage. However, Sarah's elder sister Jane publically stated that mom maintained a home-visiting schedule [bandesha]. According to the sister, Mom was not abusive, only distant. [12, fantasy, foreign, clandestine, covert]

Mom may be emotionally detached or distracted by matters of Chandra's bhava.

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem [dharmesha Somana-yuti-Ketu-9] GS reported that her mother suffered from mental disorientation which worsened after divorce [Ketu]. Passive Presbyterian Mom held mismatched beliefs [Ketu-9] from active Jewish businessman dad [Rahu-3] which led to marital abandonment by dad. However, mom supported GS education.

Blunted sensitivity to others' feelings = "Emotional Teflon" Most emotional experience seems irrelevant. One perhaps lacks emotional sensitivity but one is also largely free of disabling emotional drama.

  • Chandra = roots in the ground, deeply caring, protective, parental, and sheltering

  • Ketu = blows in the wind., apathetic, disregarding, disassociated, and scattered.

Chandra + chidrakaraka-Ketu seeks to surrender to the void [Ketu]

the emotional identity [Chandra] tends to disperse.

dissolved boundaries may result in unconstrained emotionally habitual, self-comforting behaviors

Characteristics of Ketu's nakshatra may reveal the no-off-switch area.

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump is famed for his apparently unlimited indulgence in Twitter messaging in the late hours of the night. His Chandra occupies prophetic, evangelical Budha-ruled Jyeṣṭha [nīcha] in bhava-5 = 3rd-from-3rd. Budha's influence upon his comfort-seeking behaviors suggests that he feels unconcerned [Chandra] with constraints or consequences following his routine habit of sending brief [Budha] emotionally-reactive (Vṛścika-Chandra) missives to bolster his ego (Surya-yuti-Rahu [uchcha] in 7th-from-Chandra). Chandra-Vṛścika [nīcha] often feels under attack [Kuja] and Mr. Trump's Chandra-Ketu receives an exacerbating drishti of a verbally aggressive Mangala-Simha-2, suggesting that his comfort-seeking behaviors consist mainly of pre-emptive verbal strikes against his ego-detractors.

Graha Pakvata * Delayed Planetary maturity

Chandra normally matures at age 24, while Rahu and Ketu mature at age 48.

When Somana-yuti-Rahu or Somana-yuti-Ketu, then Chandra's maturity is delayed, and Chandra cannot mature until age 48.

One effect of the delayed maturity = until after age 48., one may remain emotionally distanced and less inclined to connect to the mother or caretaker figures, and disregarding of the parents in general.

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem [Somana-yuti-Ketu] -9. Her mother, suffering a disorienting mental-emotional illness, was institutionalized for several years. Ms. Steinem recounts that until her own 50's, her mother's life did not seem relevant to her own and their connection was not easily understood.

Just Walk Away

One is blessed by the capacity for emotional surrender, which grants the empowerment of release to walk away from unsustainable [Ketu] environments and relationships.

Ketu-yuti- [Chandra in classroom-1] yuti Ketu * emotional detachment allows disengagement from physical body appearance and identity attributes. When the time comes, usually during a Vimshottari Dasha period of Chandra or Ketu, one facilitates abandonment [Ketu] of unnecessary rituals, surrender of customary attachments, and easy release from outdated identities.

  • Methodism 1703-1791 preacher John Wesley preached a religious Method of spiritual freedom [Ketu] to find the divine presence within, rather than worship with elaborate external rituals. An ordained priest of the established government-funded Church of England, JW walked away from the stifling hierarchies of class-based worship, and began preaching in the open air to the common folk. At a time of great social upheaval, JW's doctrine of divine access via personal emotional experience was appealing to vast numbers of poor, unclassified [Ketu] dispossessed folk.

Ketu-yuti- [Chandra in classroom-2] * emotional detachment allows disengagement from family lineage values-fulfillment , banked treasuries, speech and face. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from outdated languages, archaic collections, libraries, databases, expired historical truths, obsolete storage behaviors.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt + Budha + Kuja + Surya

Ketu-yuti-[Chandra in classroom-3] emotional detachment allows disengagement from management roles, teamwork, reporting behaviors. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from outdated conversations, expired habits of information handling, unneeded communication activities.

  • Way of Zen 1915-1973 radio philosopher Alan Watts

Ketu-yuti-[Chandra in classroom-4] [dikbala]emotional detachment allows disengagement from the mother and the motherland. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from outdated cultural roots, unneeded policing, expired bondage to a place of settlement and its ethnicity.

  • UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer (4). Her own mother detached from the home when Diana was a child; later as a mother herself, Diana was frequently absent. Also, once her marriage (4th-from-4th) had collapsed, Diana disregarded many of the tired old conventions which dictated proper material behavior. As a northern European ethnic person, Her final romance with an Arab amour shows the abandonment of ethnic boundaries.

Ketu-yuti- [Chandra in classroom-5] emotional detachment allows disengagement from celebrity, games, speculative finance, creative intelligence, politics, romantic idealism, children. During Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu, one may exhibit walking-away abandonment of outdated showmanship, unneeded drama, expired political ideas

  • Moonies 1920-2012 Rev. Sun Myung Moon SMM promoted himself as the // True Father // of the cult. However, he generally maintained an observer role with his numerous children. When they reached adulthood and could take commercial roles in his business empire, the children were invested with authority. He formed covert financial relationships Chandra-Bharani with Washington D.C. politicians (5). Kuja-yuti-Rahu-11 indicates the economic priorities.

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump nicha-Chandra-lagnesha. DJT was abandoned by his mother as a toddler, due to her extended illness and hospitalization. As an adult, he had limited contact with his children. Once the kids reached adulthood, he gave the three kids [from his first marriage] key roles in the family corporation. The children are expected to demonstrate absolute loyalty, for which they are rewarded with extraordinary wealth [Rahu-11] DJT changed political party affiliation [5] several times, suggesting a disregard for the integrity of electional politics [Ketu-5]. His financial behavior is considered erratic. Yet with [nīcha-Chandra] being lagnesha, financial speculation [5] is also the basis of identity. [Surya-yuti-Rahu-uchcha] [11] indicates the flamboyant over-reaching marketplace excess.

Ketu-yuti-[Chandra in classroom-6] emotional detachment allows disengagement from disputes, diseases, physicians, criminals, criminalization / crime, enemies, indebtedness, doubt. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from jail, medical clinics, outdated debts, and expired accusation.

Ketu-yuti- [Chandra in classroom-7] emotional detachment allows disengagement from alliances, agreements, bargains, brokerage, the paternal grandmother,. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from outdated marriages, expired contracts, unneeded partnerships, attorneys, archaic advisors.

  • Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr (7)

Ketu-yuti-Chandra in classroom-8 * emotional detachment allows disengagement from terror, trauma, sudden unexpected changes, catastrophe. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from disasters, surgeries, invasions, outdated shock patterns.

Ketu-yuti- [Chandra in classroom-9] emotional detachment allows disengagement from father-figures, professors, guru-figures, preachers, and their doctrines. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from unneeded universities, expired global humanism, archaic worldwide organizations, outdated dogma.

  • Ms. Magazine 1934- women's rights Gloria Steinem [Somana-yuti-Ketu] stepped away from the outdated dogma which claimed that women had less ability than men

Collapsing Ketu yuti- [Chandra in classroom-10] emotional detachment allows disengagement from career and professional duties. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from outdated positions, governance roles, socially dignified authority and rank.

Ketu-yuti-Chandra-11 * emotional detachment allows disengagement from marketplace connections, communities, ecologies, networks. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from outdated friendships, unneeded economic connections, expired sources of revenue and social linkages.

Ketu-yuti- [Chandra in classroom-12] emotional detachment allows disengagement from sanctuary enclosures, research laboratories, the paternal grandmother, and private rooms. When the time comes (usually a Vimshottari dasha period of Chandra or Ketu), facilitates easy release from prison, extended detainments, outdated visions, unneeded spiritual guides, expired realms of imagination.

  • Homeopathy 1755-1843 Dr. Samuel Hahnemann + [Budha-yuti-Surya] evoked the guidance of the ancestor spirits in order to formulate the new vision of healing via the essences of plants, minerals, and animal substances

  • Banker to the Poor 1940- microcredit Muhammad Yunus [Chandra-yuti-Ketu]* stabilizing, land-protecting service to the invisible class of mothers, especially as ethnic collectives [Chandra] rather than individuals

Depending on the bhava of residence, one may feel socially stable in character but scattered [Ketu] in parental [Chandra] commitments and easily manipulated by Others more motivated to achieve a higher station in life (Rahu-7th-from).

Often the mother suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life and continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the mother-child relationship. Both Ketu and Chandra are very impressionable; therefore any incoming drishti may alter the severity of the abandonment fears.

  • UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer * her mother abandoned the family when Diana was young, and the mother's relatives expressed animosity.

The abandonment scenario would not necessarily have been personal and it need not have been real. For example, the may have been raised in a climate of ongoing narrative about losing the house, losing the farm, or various threats and fears which need never have materialized. There is enough PTSD effect even from the constant fear of irretrievable loss and the "despair of increasing vulnerability" to generate the abandonment effect. Characteristics include intense clinging interspersed with intense rejection.

Parenting [Chandra]

As parents, males follow a comfortable and familiar prototype from their own childhood home. Often unconsciously [Ketu] the male may duplicate the modeling earlier received from his own distant but functional parents.

Partnerships = Rahu in 7th

However, the mate represented via Rahu in 7th from Chandra-yuti-Ketu may have exaggerated qualities of adventurousness and passionate ambitions. The partner tends to take expedient risks in matters of Rahu's bhava.

Chandra-Ketu yoga produces relationships characterized by Rahu in bhava-7 including a partnership pattern of coupling with higher-energy, more flamboyant spouses who bring excitement into Chandra-Ketu's rather tame emotional life.

Depending again very much on the rashi + bhava owned and occupied + incoming drishti, the overall pattern of parenting and sheltering behaviors = apprehended as a job in which one is largely disinterested. Yet, Because parenting provides some measure of protective security [Chandra] one performs the task with reasonable efficiency.

These natives are not always beholden to the social mandate to secure their partnerships via the vow of marriage promise. One may also (depending on graha involved) enjoy numerous partnerships with flamboyant or highly expeditious partners.

Disengaged within interpersonal relationships. The Rahu-Other tends to be the dominant partner who makes most of the choices.

By Rashi

[Chandra-yuti-Ketu] Karkata tends to be emotionally sensitive but withdrawn . This is a combination for mental and emotional detachment, but potentially also a psychic sensitivity that allows communication with elemental nature spirits of the waters (lakes, streams, rivers, oceans, rain) in a healing way.

Meditation practice here makes the difference. If in a structured and supervised practice, the super-sensitive and easily invaded native can serve his community as a vital link to the spirit world.

Emotionally scattered.

Abandoning Ketu with soothing Chandra tends to avoid the most demanding styles of personal emotional engagement. Cool calm but not collected. Emotionally present but disengaged and disinterested; holds amorphous, cloudlike presence. Disregard for the consequences of one's own behavior.

One may lack cultural accountability to established folk practices, such as parenting and kinship bonding, ritual worship, or agricultural routines.

[Chandra-yuti-Ketu] may be associated with a lack of empathy.

  • USA-Sen-Utah 1947- finance Mitt Romney [nicha-Somana-yuti-Guru + Ketu] [7, legal contracts, negotiation] In his 2002 race for USA-Senator from Massachusetts, WMR's campaign message seemed to ignore [Ketu] the problems of suffering citizens. Again in the 2012 POTUS contest, WMR lost a large swath of voter support due to dehumanizing statements [Ketu-yuti-Guru, dehumanism] about poor people. Exposing an underlying emotional disconnection from humans outside the luxury class, WMR was captured on video, speaking in a deprecating and disrespectful fashion about people who failed to // make-it //. [nicha-Chandra + Guru-yuti-Ketu] expands the economic abundance [Guru rules-11] while Ketu fragments Chandra's empathy.

  • During the 2016 election cycle, POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Beauty Pageants Donald Trump pronounced similarly insensitive political remarks [Ketu-5] blaming the marginalized classes for the nation's economic woes.

  • The vicious zero-empathy accusations pronounced by Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler unleashed a vast scale of dehumanization [Ketu]. Chandra + Guru-yuti-Ketu expands the scope of apathy. Ability to hurt others arises from inability to register their humanity.

  • Methodism 1703-1791 preacher John Wesley was famed for his impassioned sermons (Surya-Rahu-Mithuna-7) JW was equally recognized for inconsistency and apathy toward the needs of his family (Chandra-Ketu-1).

One element which is typically missing from the emotional repertoire is any pronounced emotional need to draw security from an outside source, such as a partner. The native is emotionally dispersed, somewhat ungrounded via the typical roots through family and place of settlement, and often clairsentient.

Generally a tame and harmless personality, unless the passive combination of Chandra-yuti-Ketu is dominated by another graha.

  • Example of rare evil outcome: Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler = dominated by Guru-Pūrvāṣāḍhā rogesha

  • Venezuela-Pres 1954-2013 Hugo R. Chavez + [Guru-yuti-Budha] = Chandra randhresha-8 brings a patriotic, revolutionary emotional urge; randhresha-8 Chandra-yuti-Ketu may be ultimately self-destructive (premature natural death)

May try to ground oneself through the family, the folkways, the land and its history in the life cycle of a people [Chandra] or patriotic [Chandra] grasping at meaning via national identity. Ultimately these stage-props will fail to stabilize the native within either a family home or within a place.

However, if Chandra's ruler or the bandhesha-4 = strong, one may indeed find a place via the agency of those represented by the graha which rules Chandra or lord of bhava-4. As a general rule, one depends on others to provide context for the meaning of one's life. Tendency to remain emotionally disconnected from the mother, the childhood home, and the place of birth, even while one can be physically presented and walking through the motions of folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms and social expectations.

Only a direct grounding through the mists of the universe to the absolute cosmic center will have any significant grounding effect.

[Ketu] = unglued, unstuck, incoherent

The emotional identity is evasive, dispersed, slips through one's grasp. In the worst cases, one may become emotionally incoherent.

Numbed to the reality [Ketu] of one's own emotional behavior [Chandra] and may quite ingenuously assert that there is no such thing as emotional reality. 'Every man for himself" is the rallying cry of this yoga.

Chandra is highly impressionable whereas Ketu is not coherent enough to receive an impression. Therefore, the native operates emotionally within a Ketu-ized mindset. In this view, one is an independent agent making unstructured laissez-faire movements [Ketu] which have no consequences [Ketu]

Often one appears to be a master of calm objectivity, who does what one feels to be 'necessary under the circumstances' without awareness of consequences.

One's social performance may be mystically charismatic but at the same time there is consistent disregard for social protocol and public behavior standards. One is a free spirit in positive contexts, but just as likely to accept criminal suggestions in negative contexts.

Emotional permeability . If there is to be an outcome of emotional integrity or accountability for the effects of one's parental, affectionate, protective, or patriotic actions -- some other graha, not Chandra, must provide it.

Chandra-Ketu yoga is generally uncomfortable for matters of emotional stability and parenting, but may give excellent results for the practicing mystic.

Generally rather weak emotional boundaries, vulnerable to the psychic projections of others.

Exception: if other more materially focused, grounded graha join the Chandra-Ketu pair

in Ripu-bhava : divorce and substance disorders, financial insufficiency, possibility of prostitution or criminal mischief due to the permeable aura and suggestibility to directions from malicious inferiors

[Somana-yuti-Ketu] emotional disregard, unhinged behaviors due to emotional stress

  • UK-Duchess of York 1959- Sarah FergusonT he sensationalist British press reported that SF became "unglued" [Ketu] by her marital separation during Shukra-Rahu bhukti [Rahu-6 spouse]. SF's post-divorce descent into bankruptcy was portrayed as a Ketuized disregard for consequences.

  • UK-Duchess of York 1959- Sarah Ferguson (age 12) mother abandoned the family and moved to a distant continent.

The parents, particularly the mother, often have some type of mental-emotional incapacity such as their own childhood trauma, drug/alcohol issues, depression, or frequent unexplained absences from the home (physical or emotional absence) which cause the native to feel abandoned.

for meditation and spiritual practices that focus on detachment.

[Chandra-yuti-Ketu] may have sacrificial tendencies; one is quickly drained emotionally. May attract predatory or deeply needy partners. Chandra + Ketu may sacrifice one's own well-being in the scattered fruitless attempt to protect or emotionally rescue these partners.

Marriage for Chandra-yuti-Ketu

Regardless of the bhava in which Chandra resides, the partner with Chandra-yuti-Ketu may feature limited emotional responsiveness and a distant disengagement. The Chandra-yuti-Ketu native may be commitment-phobic due to an underlying awareness of the eventual dispersal [Ketu] of all emotional [Chandra] connections.

The Chandra-yuti-Ketu native is often found in marriage or long-term partnership with mates who are fascinating, risk-loving, and expedient agents. The Chandra-yuti-Ketu native may indeed provide their Rahu mate with a convenient platform for accelerated personal achievement.

Significant resistance to making emotional commitments; and should the commitment be undertaken, one may experience a persistent apathy and dissatisfaction in the relationship with the female.

While de Beauvoir publically proclaimed their liberated relationship, in her private diaries she expressed a deep sadness that Sartre had devalued their union. She recorded her perception that while he respected her ideas, he disrespected her gender, her intuition, and her feelings.

Misty Winter Morning, Taj Mahal, Agra Bharat

Chandra-Ketu pair is "absorbent"and very much influenced by

  • any other yuti graha

  • any incoming drishti

  • lord of the rashi

The description below must be adjusted to accommodate Chandra's absorptive relationship to other graha.

Dispersal of empathy caused by fundamental [Chandra] disengagement [Ketu] from emotional attachment in the present lifetime.

Caveat: Chandra is exceptionally impressionable. Naturally, the presence of additional graha in the same bhava with the Chandra-Ketu can change this description significantly.

One may feel that the parents, particularly the mother, are withdrawn or unresponsive. As an adult, one may develop an eccentric style of parenting which permits considerable absence, either physical or emotional.

However, the psychic gateway to parents and caregivers, particular to the mother, has no barriers. Thus the mother may have a profoundly influential effect upon the child without the child realizing consciously the origin or content of the instructions from the parent.

Typically, the Chandra-Ketu native believes oneself to be an independent agent controlled by no one and nothing.

One self-identifies as being an emotionally neutral, non-reactive, independent personality.

Nothing could be farther from the truth. One is indeed emotionally influenced by the parent figures but the site of engagement is deeply subconscious.

Free of bondage to emotional moods and melodrama. Emotionally detached; may"wander away" from parenting and caretaking responsibilities.

Typical early-life experiences may include a mother who withdraws from overwhelming caretaking duties, a mother suffering from depression or disengagement from life, a mother distracted by professional or other non-child-nourishing duties, or a mother whose primary allegiance is to her spouse rather than to her child. This last situation is most common when the father is a vibrant personality (Rahu in 7th from Chandra) and the mother is so drained in the process of nourishing the Rahu-father that there is little energy remaining to resource the children.

If intensified by additional drishti from Shani, may express psychological attachment disorder.

Feelings are scattered into a dust cloud.

  • Emotional apathy.
  • Not antipathy. Just apathy.

Chandra's natural need to bond with others may have been completely pulverized.

Ambivalence toward Chandra matters such as parents, homeland, foundational education, emotional security, daily routine, nourishment, safety, shelter, pathways of transportation, defense of the nation, patriotism.

Frequently absent from the home [Chandra]. May Naturally, take to the sea when seeking respite from life's pressures - e.g., sailing, kayaking, fishing. Feels comfortable [Chandra] in wind-cloud-water mixes, such as on a windy, cloudy sea.

Both positive feelings and negative feelings are scattered to the winds.

If Chandra feels competitive (rashi of Surya, Mangala, lagnesha, activating drishti) there may be short-term advantage in life due to lack of problems with grief or guilt.

Life is perceived as inherently uncertain. Yet lacking the natural instinct to prevent harm to others, one may feel liberated to act more freely, particularly gaining ability to have long absences from home, free from the twin burdens of pain and regret. Native is not harmed but one's children may feel that this parent was distant.

The ability to harm others is opened due to lack of concern for personal safety and lack of emotional bondage. Caution is warranted.

However, the positive emotions of love and compassion are also lacking.

The ensuing moral vacuum may create a profound insensitivity to the emotions of others. Ketu-Chandra may be unable to acknowledge the plight of those less fortunate than oneself. If other planets suggest evil, harmfully selfish and even dehumanizing actions may feel acceptable

if the natural incoming drishti of Rahu gets compounded by drishti from other sources of materialistic power - particularly from Shani.

  • sadistic genocidal murder Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler 's Chandra-yuti-Ketu yoga is greatly expanded via incoming Rahu drishti, plus yuti Guru

  • VPOTUS Military Weapons Contracts 1941- Dick Cheney was known for his utter lack of compassion, in principle and in action, for prisoners and the poor.

In particular, a lack of empathy toward mothers and caretakers, toward the weak or vulnerable, toward the motherland, toward boundaries and borders, toward one's own parents, and toward the emotional component of parenting roles.

Mother is less emotionally available. The native is disengaged from sheltering, caretaking, and parenting tasks; largely out of touch with children's feelings although the external, material duties may be well accomplish providing that Bandusthāna and the bandu-pati are well disposed..

Ego-connection to parents = much reduced. Native = free agent, unencumbered by the needs of others.

Males are disinclined to marry despite producing children, although a 'common law' (Chandra, folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms) marriage is frequently developed. Feminine Nativities have mother (Soma) who produces opportunities for polarizing catalysis ; specifically, abandonment [Ketu].

Both male and female get into rather peculiar relationships with maternal-type women, due to a lack of emotional clarity regarding one's own intentions.

Sincere but somewhat unreliable due to tendency to disconnect; prone to emotional escape tactics to avoid feeling overwhelmed. A sorrowful individual; far too sensitive to the feelings of others and so one numbs those feelings; in despair of ever finding one's own emotional balance; never truly comfortable in this life but unable to define what is missing.

Tries to be a brave protector. Yet, emotionally numbed, the courageous behavior is modeled on outsiders, not rooted in tangible personal experience of satisfaction in protective and defensive [Chandra] roles.

Particularly in bhava-12, Chandra-yuti-Ketu may produce a gifted psychic who can flourish in a protected [Chandra] environment. Success in psychic endeavors may depend upon the character of the mother [Chandra] who is often absent emotionally.

Excellent for spiritual practice of dissolution and disappearance of boundaries. Philosophical nihilism and meditative traditions like jnana yoga or Zen * Chan may be suitable.

Emotional perceptions may be scattered, disconnected or incoherent. May experience some apathy toward the cultural expectations that all persons should be significantly involved with human feelings.

[Chandra-yuti-Ketu] is not significantly emotionally aware or involved in human life. Yet scattering Ketu's discouragement of involvement does not per se indicate social disability. In fact, this yoga may increase intellectual clarity by removing emotional distraction.

Nevertheless, the native is advised to double-check the emotional condition of others before acting since one is not naturally empathetic.


For Ketu-yuti-Chandra

Mom tends to present as emotionally detached, with perhaps less interest in the native, although she may well accomplish the social-material requirements of her parenting, there is a weak or gone channel of emotional recognition between mother and native.

Mother may feel that she needs to invest all of her energy in trying to connect with her ambitious mate (Rahu drishti to Ketu-Chandra) and as a consequence, mother's energy reserves available for non-mate nurturing (such as caring for her children) remain rather low.

Her attention wanders [Ketu] from everything except her mate. Usually as a carry-through, Mother has little interest in helping to raise the grandchildren.

Devaluation or Disregard [Ketu] toward the Mother. Overall e motional detachment from women (Chandra, mother-figures).

Psychically absorptive breasts and chest, front and back torso, lymph system,"immune" system.

Dissatisfied and doubting of one's mother and women overall. Uneasiness or detachment from the parents and a subtle apathy shown by the parents toward this child, in the childhood home.

Unable to fully connect with the mother. Also unable to fully disconnect from the mother. Even after death or a public declaration of separation, one longs for fulfillment of the maternal presence.

Resignation to a separative, psychologically distanced relationship with the mother , and with all women who hold a supporting or nurturing role. A deep and ineffable, sense of loss for the mother, who seems to have been taken away by circumstances beyond one's control. A longing for The imagined satisfaction of completed union with the unconditionally loving mother.

Confused emotions and strong survival instinct programmed to disconnect from emotional intimacy.

Poor boundaries with an unpredictable Mother: she is both distant and invasive by turns.

Inability to register a sense of personal certainty regarding the portfolio of Chandra: emotional intelligence, maternal-parental instincts, intuition, family, parents, relationship to earth and water. One may engage in family life indefinitely, driven by a need to belong, without ever achieving a clear public parental identity or a clear personal sense of emotional connection within relationships.

Childhood conditions include an emotionally detached mother. Does not indicate a lack of basic caretaking, but rather, the mother's priorities are elsewhere.

  • Publisher 1960-1999 attorney JFK-Jr's mom was famously dominated by her financially privileged, philandering husbands during his upbringing.

Typically, the mother chooses to be more emotionally available toward her partner; or her partner is so extremely demanding so that no matter how she might rationalize her behavior, the fact = she has relatively little nurturing energy left for her child.

  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler 's mother was consumed and exhausted by a marriage to her abusive maternal uncle. Note Hitler's Mula Chandra "Alakshmi" in a nakshatra of Ketu, suggesting emotional disengagement. With the drishti of permissive Guru upon his Surya-Shukra-Mangala-Budha sexual complex in bhava-8, also a disregard for others in an abundance of illicit relationships. Sadly this complex produced a collosal lack of empathy which empowered the ability to dehumanize people on a very large Guru-expanded scale.
