Suddenly cut off [Ketu] from the source of understanding [Guru].

  • odd theory

Ketu * breaks-up * the Guru * doctrine

pulverizes and disperses the received teachings

doctrinal disorientation

Many Scatterings * Much Dispersion * Excess Vata

Brihaspati is a multiplier, producing many and much.

Collapsing Ketu represents dispersing agents and desaparacidos who lose their apparent form and vanish into other realities. They are unsettling ghosts who lack permanent integrity. They disregard all formalities.

Ketu-figures are particulate in nature, assuming no coherent form. They swirl like a dusty wind. They flap in the air like a tattered flag, signaling abandonment and impermanence. They are headless, following no direction.

Dispersion of Children, Doctrine, and Preachers

Psychically absorptive sciatic nerve and reproductive complex.

Dissatisfied and doubting of one's children (esp. The first child). ambivalent about birthing and raising children. Cannot sincerely confirm the value of children in one's life. Distrust of priests, professors, religion and prayer.

  • The eldest child of Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono was kidnapped during a custody battle. The child was successfully hidden from her mother until a first reunion was arranged, when the child was 31. Ono's second child was stillborn. Compounded by Mangala-yuti-Ketu-12.

Esoteric Spiritual Guidance

Disconnection from the material form of the spiritual teacher, Yet, the esoteric teachings may be successfully apprehended in non-material form. Guru-figure has eccentric patterns and is often an absentee personality. One longs for fulfillment of the wisdom-presence.


Generally disinterested to fully connect with the children, particularly with the first child. Yet, typically unable to fully disconnect from the children. The fragmentation persists even after decease, or a public declaration of separation from one's children

  • Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs = Ketu-yuti-Guru-5. Verbalizing, commercializing, sales-and-marketing Mithunaya Brihaspati-5 rules the inspirational, preaching, designing Dhanus Shukra-yuti-Rahu-11. SPJ as an adopted child, SPJ had two fathers (bio and adoptive) Yet, Both remained background figures. Guru-yuti-Ketu can cut [Ketu]-the patronage narrative [Guru]. Aged 24, SPJ mounted a vigorous denial of paternity toward his eldest child (5), going so far as to hire lawyers to prevent court-ordered child-support payments. The abandoned [Ketu] child was requesting support of several hundred dollars per month while SPJ company was earning millions. Rahu-Mula.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono + Kuja (12) lost contact with her daughter for 27 years.

Resignation to a separative, psychologically distanced relationship to children and advanced students.

A deep and ineffable, sense of loss for the spiritual teacher and dream guides, who seem to have been taken away by circumstances beyond one's control.

Eliminates all that is outdated, including desiccated beliefs and no longer needed experiences for children

  • Fijación Oral 1977- singer Shakira Mebarak spearheads a large-scale [Guru] social programme to eliminate [Ketu-5] childhood malnutrition (2, food)

A longing [Ketu] for the imagined satisfaction of completed union with the source of universal wisdom [Guru].

Groundless optimism and scattered generosity.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono is known for the generously humanistic, abstract nature of her art. So abstract is the creative expression (Ketu Singha) that despite numerous public installations, very few common people can understand it [dispersed Guru = scattered understanding].

Highly sensitive to religious dogma and the elite behaviors of the priesthood, but disconnected from the authentic source of the wisdom teachings . Tends to feel depressed around priests and professors.

Dispersion of Guru's negative effects * a blessing in disguise

Inability to establish personal certainty regarding the portfolio of Guru: religious faith, philosophical inquiry, temple culture, priesthood and public ritual, the father, teachers and preachers, humanistic education.

one may engage in religious and philosophical life indefinitely, driven by a need to find a wisdom truth, without ever achieving a clear public religious identity or a clear personal sense of lasting truth.


The Incoherent Husband.


In a wifely nativity, Guru-yuti-Ketu may represent a second partner whose presence is dispersed, incoherent, or not formalized.

  • Friends 1969- drama-fashion Jennifer Aniston [Somana-yuti-Kuja] . Ms. Aniston entered a second marriage with American dramatist Justin Theroux during 2015-2017 The marriage coincided with her Janma Sade-Sati Vṛścika Nov-2014 until Jan-2017. Although numerous strong connections appear between this couple, such as his Chandra-Meena matching many of the Meena features of her nativity, nevertheless Guru-yuti-Ketu-1 may tragically abbreviate the second union..

Often the husband suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life and continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the adult relationships, particularly playing the husband role within a marriage.

In wifely nativity, Guru-yuti-Ketu may indicate a somewhat unpredictable and inconstant first husband from whom the native feels detached or independent, albeit not adversarial.

If Rahu occupies a position of strength, the relationship may continue to be defining and supportive while accommodating the non-threatening and dispersed-focus of the second-or-additional partner.

  • POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton (11) * special challenges added for Tula-nativity due to Guru activates 3-6

First husband may have psychically weak boundaries which allow predatory others to enter his intimate space.

In the nativity of a wife, Ketu-yuti-Guru may also indicate uncertainty regarding the rather nebulous [Ketu] character of the first husband [Guru].

In bhava-1: the husband has multiple identities. He contributes to one's personal identity. However, this figure is not much interested in theGuru-1 native and he does not remain for long.

In bhava-2, impacts the relationship with family lineage values-fulfillment and ancestral knowledge treasuries. Financial values.

When Brihaspati activates dhanabhava, the traditional wisdom lineage of the family ancestry may be expansive, but one may feel ambivalent toward those traditions, seeking something undefined and often unavailable.

In bhava-5 few children, often none. The husband has multiple talents. He may be a politician or entertainer. He is not inclined to contribute financially to the marriage; the native earns everything.

In bhava-6: husband has multiple accidents, injuries, and ailments; financial indebtedness; and perhaps due to the incoherent aura can be attacked. May be strengthened by psychic exercise to fortify the aura.

In bhava-7, multiplier Guru meets amputator Ketu

  • Swing Time 1911-1995 dance theatre Ginger Rogers [Guru-yuti-Ketu] From the 1930's forward, GR enacted and symbolized the new role of " working girl" who earned her money and spent her time independent from husband (Ketu-Guru). GR was married and divorced five times. Her work ethic and her celebrity [Rahu-1] tended to dominate and her husbands tended to weaken.

In bhava-8: husband may have secret lives or undisclosed personality traits, or other covered items.

  • Swing Time 1911-1995 dance theatre Ginger Rogers * five husbands, five divorces. Marriage-to-divorce usually quick 2-year duration. Guru = lagnesha ++ karmesha. A dancer, dramatist, and financial investor who survived five marriages and became a wealthy independent woman through investing her own earnings, GR eschewed most conventional identities (Guru lagnesha). On the way to that happier later-life status, Rogers dropped out of high school, and was kidnapped from her home as a toddler by an angry father who was denied custody during her parents' divorce. In toddlerhood, her mother left little Virginia (Ginger) with grandparents for two years so mom could write Hollywood move scripts. By disregarding norms [Ketu] during the 1930's into the 1960's , GR created a new identity for thousands of American women who preferred to work self-sufficiently rather than marry.

In bhava-9

In bhava-11: the husband has multiple friends and the marriage is socially well networked. He helps the wife to make social connections. However has few boundaries in his friendly relations and may have many friends with benefits.

In bhava-12 - fantasy, imagination, undefined conceptual thought

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono + Guru-yuti-Kuja (12) = evolved from passionate cause to passionate cause spanning many decades. One cause expires, it is abandoned, and a new political [Simha] idea appears. The body of creative work is abundant. Yet, but to many observers, it lacks incoherence [Ketu].

Ketu + a strong benefic, such as a well-placed Shukra or Guru, may indicate surprisingly easy popularity * what Americans call "like-ability" * with the common folk , even despite potentially glaring character flaws.

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru (12) despite his elitist attributes, remained a popular figure throughout his career. Ketu+Guru in 12 had produced several prison sentences for revolutionary activism, which misery endeared him to the people as well.

Misapprehension or dispersion of clarity [Ketu] re: Doctrine and Beliefs [Guru] unclear conviction * boundary issues

  • USA-Sen-Utah 1947- finance Mitt Romney * Ketu + [Somana-yuti-Guru] [2, treasuries, family heritage] Son of the nationally known former Michigan governor George Romney, WMR has elite political credentials. Yet, WMR's political career has been burdened by the lack of a clear boundary between LDS doctrinal commitments [Guru-yuti-Ketu] versus the constitution of pluralistic nation reduced trust within the electorate. WMR has declined to address the widespread boundary-category issue, expressed as Mormonism isn't a religion; it's a business. WMR's popularity derives from his identity as a financial fixer for large, distressed corporations [Guru-2 rules 6-distress]. Yet, his waffling [Ketu] about religious vows [Guru] eventually made him unsuitable as a presidential candidate. Having run in numerous political racesWMR has won only twice, and is considered // flip-flopper // in matters of ideology [Guru]

In bhava-12, distancing and seclusion on the pretext of wisdom, philosophical principles, preaching, theory, or other Guru-activities

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru (12) At a very young age, JN was sent away [Ketu] from his family in India to attend the prestige English boarding school Harrow. Nehru was not permitted to return to his family's home until after completing his law qualifications in London, in his early twenties.

In bhava-12, both expansion and separation from the influence of distant lands

  • India-PM 1889-1964 Toward Freedom Jawaharlal Nehru (12) Thoroughly indoctrinated [Guru] in the British paradigm, JN preached that English-language modernization + rational westernization could unlock India's bondage to superstition and end its generational poverty. Yet, JN wanted to develop the legacy wisdom of a vast old civilization, which was encased in its ancient native languages. This quandary underwent many iterations but was never resolved.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono + Kuja * YO shuttled back and forth between USA , UK, and Japan for most of her life (except during WW-2).

The lessons of Professor Ketu are inherently unpredictable and His effects fluctuate over time. These lessons are in reality multiple opportunities for accepting of gifts of understanding. The Ketu-supported ride to popularity can also collapse into public disregard, divorce, disassociation, or disgrace.

If the lessons of Professor Guru are stronger, one may become an ungrounded spiritual minister .

The lessons of Professor Ketu are stronger, one can become a "talking head" who promotes a certain religious or philosophical view to which he is not personally connected.

Profound ambivalence veiled in an aura of humanism. Will promote any view that brings him acceptance and gain.

If there is a spiritual-religious doctrinal authority figure (and often there is none because Ketu disregards doctrine) that figure suffers psychologically from abandonment disorientations and fears which originated in early life and continue to manifest as separativeness and distrust throughout the teaching-preaching relationships.

Confusion about what genuine faith is, or feels like. Public approval can replace personal faith.

Subject to cult beliefs and idolatry of a guru or an ideology. Sudden changes of religious or moral conviction, in order to serve the interests of others .

Tendency to absorb the children of others . Large family with numerous offspring, but few are one's own.

Beholden to many for one's own prosperity.

Usually a happy person, not prone to deep inquiry, willing to serve as a symbolic guru or social figurehead. Enjoys public approval through promoting a generalized positive view of life and the future. Constitutional dislike of religious inquiry.

Dissociative Ketu wishes to eliminate attachment to belief systems which have become an obstacle on one 's path to spiritual development. In this process, one may experience confusion about what expansion is, what faith is, and how to connect authentically to the source of prosperity.

  • Walden 1817-1862 abolition Henry David Thoreau * wrote in the 1850's. HDT recorded his attraction * akarshana * to the currently popular Transcendentalist philosophy (his Shukra-yuti-Rahu-8-Urisha). He also described a lifetime skepticism toward all philosophical teachings

Unless one is sufficiently conscious, tendency to enthusiastically promote beliefs to which one has no authentic connection . Classic planetary yoga for a hypocritical preacher.
