Ketu disperses Mangala's competitive, masculine, pioneering energy.

Yoga for alternative expressions of yang flow. May experience a dissolution and misting-away of the purported physical forms and formalities, such as prescribed athletic or aggressive actions, established protocols for making war and hunting, and various consensus-reality fixed interpretations of male identity. Breaks-up the hunter's instinctual pursuit of sex, game, blood, and alpha dominance.

Ketu and Mangala, co-rulers of Vṛścika, are cooperators in specific tasks which promote the sudden upheaval of social expectations and quick identity changesr.

In a feminine nativity, Ketu provides a tendency to ignore the socially imposed limits on use of yang energy. Ketu pulverizes the barriers which consensus reality may apply to women's use of sexual, creative, athletic, or inventive energies.

  • Avant-gardiste 1933- Beatle-pair Yoko Ono [Ketu-Singha yuti Mangala-Singha] [Guru-yuti-Ketu] (11, community participation, revenues) = reported to have aggressively pursued [Kuja] her intended third husband John Lennon Purportedly, YO attended all of his recording sessions and waited for opportunities [11] to be in his home, when JWL's then-wife was absent [Ketu absent]

  • Material Girl 1958- dance song cinema Madonna [Ketu-Mesha yuti Mangala-Mesha] Madonna adopted the posture of a sexual provocateur. She dramatized the role of overt disregarder of male privilege to make cultural prescriptions for acceptable performance behavior. Also, numerous high-profile dissolved relationships with competitive men [Kuja-Mesha].

  • Two Women 1934- luxury eyeframes Sophia Loren [Ketu-Karkata] yuti [Mangala-Karkata-nīcha] [9, father-figures, doctrine, celebrity] SL recognized few barriers [Ketu] against sexualized [Kuja] onscreen performance.

  • Contempt 1934- animal-activist Brigitte Bardot [Ketu-Karkata yuti Mangala-Karkata] (5) BB recognized few barriers against a sexualized [Kuja] emotionally compelling (Aśleṣa) performance in dramatic roles (5)

May disregard gender limits on innovation, pioneering, or creative performance

In a masculine nativity, tendency to ignore the socially imposed mandates to deploy yang energy.

Dissociated from the stereotypical masculine-gendered pursuits. May be disinterested in sports, military aggression, or sexual conquest. However, one may freely choose to pursue the socially-boxed masculine activities as well, with no obligation but rather enjoying creative license to do so at one's own will.

There is freedom to use no-limits [Ketu] forcefulness [Kuja]. No barriers on explosions, discoveries, carnage, holocaust - up to the point of apocalypse, if other features of the nativity would indicate annihilating force. Annihilation (reduction to nihil zero) is OK with Ketu. It's what Ketu does.

There is freedom to limitless force in pursuit of ultimate surrender [Ketu].

  • POTUS-18 Civil War 1822-1885 Ulysses S. Grant * both Ketu-Singha and Mangala-Singha occupy Ketu-ruled burned-to-a-crisp Magha * USG had the miserable task of dominating the long-running USA Civil War by applying a final burst of murderous manpower into the Northern army. His strategy was brutal: kill so many on both sides that there would be no fighters alive to replenish the ranks. It was a numbers game. Massive death on both sides ultimately forced the final surrender.

If Shukra is significantly strengthened, while Mangala's prescribed formalities are dissolved by Ketu, one may prefer to disregard male prescribed behaviors and consort with women, or live in a peaceful asexual lifestyle, or live as a woman. Whichever options are chosen, one is not bound by formality or convention.

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla - Kuja-yuti-Ketu + Chandra-Hasta. A handsome, inarguably brilliant, and impeccably dressed man who nightly dined in the elegant restaurant of his residential hotel, Tesla is said to have appreciated the dinner company of intelligent persons of either gender. Tesla had no known romantic or sexual relationships.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt distancing emotional complex with [Kuja-yuti-Ketu] + [Chandra-yuti-Budha] + [Surya-Mūla-1]. The complex is concentrated in bhava-2 = second marriage. BP's relationships and profession have accommodated - indeed required - notable gender-role fluidity.

Professor Ketu teaches His curriculum in environments that are characterized as "out of conventional order". For example, Ketu-10 is out of the conventional social order whereas Ketu-4 is out of the conventional housing order or schooling order.

When Professor Ketu is born conjoint Mangala the Mover, the scattering patterns of Ketu-Akasha tend to disperse the intensity of Kuja's forward-driving pursuit.

Mangala's default drives are muscular movement and sexual conquest. All Mangala energy is pushing, forward moving, and vitalizing.

However, the goal varies according to Kuja's rashi and bhava. [uchcha] Mangala directs His energies into socially motivated pursuit of class-rank and position, whereas [nīcha] Mangala directs His vitality into activities of emotionally motivated bondage and control.

  • POTUS-06 American System 1767-1868 John Quincy Adams described his disorienting marriage to Louisa Johnson Adams as the worst mistake of his life. JQA's Chandra-yuti-Rahu-Makara-10 reveals his destiny for governance leadership roles. However, the foundation of any career is the homebase, and when Chandra-yuti-Rahu occupy 10 the home-base may be afflicted by a Ketu-ish spouse. The problems arose right from the beginning, when the misapprehension and misinterpretation characteristic of Budha-yuti-Ketu confused the inquiry into his wife's background. Louisa was described [Budha] as a well-connected heiress. Actually, she was an anxiety-suffering daughter of a bankrupt merchant. The couple had children, but their eldest committed suicide. Conditions were much compounded via Aśleṣa- [nīcha] Kuja also in 4 with Budha-Ketu.

Kuja-Karka acts decisively to bind and secure. [nīcha] Kuja made the marriage decision seem urgent. Along with his parents, J-Q would have felt an emotionally-motivated impulse to act quickly to secure the situation . The marriage vow was hastily sealed on the basis of incorrect understanding. Lifelong consequences included financial insufficiency and marital disagreements.

therefore, in order to correctly identify the environment of this extraordinary pair, it is essential to appreciate both their bhava location and their rashi qualities.

Dispersal in all directions, or a single rather peculiar direction, of the kinetic animal sexual impulse.

Detachment from the goal of conquest. Windy cooling of the heat of the chase.

Quixotic pursuit.

A male may be somewhat disconnected from one's own urgent, competitive sexuality. A female may feel rather ambivalent toward men in general.

Often the script calls for a dysfunctional brother or male cousin. Other males can be agents too.

  • Material Girl 1958- dance song cinema Madonna has a mentally ill, often homeless brother

  • King of Pop 1958-2009 Thriller Michael J. Jackson (Mesha-7 relationships) MJJ was accused multiple times of sexual misbehavior involving poor boundaries [Ketu] with underage male [Kuja] companions. Each scandal was " settled out of court" to avoid the truth-telling of a jury-trial. Accusations were neither proven nor disproven [Ketu]

Once the personal, embodied sexual and competitive impulses are dispersed in consciousness, it becomes possible to channel the dynamic, athletic, competitive, and sexual energies of others. Thus Kuja-yuti-Ketu helps male dramatists to project intensely male roles,

For both masculine-figures and feminine-figures (and those in-between) Kuja-yuti-Ketu generally assists the psychic projection of diffused sexual imagery into the public subconscious.

Disconnected from competition. Tends toward passive-aggressive style of action. Uses indirect methods to hunt, capture, and win. one is no less successful with this combination of Kuja-yuti-Ketu. However, a manipulative rather than conquesting or boasting style of action is indicated.

Extremely sensitive abdominal region.

With the de-emphasis of animal impulse, raw sexual pursuit [Kuja] can be expressed in impersonal ways and diffused into non-fleshly channels:

into photography, literature , performance arts

into competitive political manipulation

or into social service projects

Ketu-yuti-Kuja may be perceived as being dishonorably manipulative and indirect in situations which which call for great straightforwardness. one may be surprised to discover that while one has "won" the goal through whatever devious strategy was effective, one is less admired for the achieved success and indeed more feared and disliked.

Dissatisfied and doubting of one's brothers (siblings) and one's sexual prowess.

Distrust of aggressive action, hunting, anyone with a dominant personality. Discontented in fraternal relationships.

Unable to fully connect with the brothers or comrades-in-arms. Also unable to fully disconnect from the brothers (in all senses of brother).

Even after death or a public declaration of separation, one longs for fulfillment of the fraternal presence.

Resignation to a separative, psychologically distanced relationship with one's brothers, comrades-in-arms, and fellow competitors.

  • My Inventions 1856-1943 Nikola Tesla suffered a bitter and lasting resentment toward his competitor General Electric 1847-1931 Thomas Edison . Tesla and Edison were in the same generational cohort. Tesla asserted that Edison was completely wrong-headed in his electrical development models. Even more acrimoniously, Tesla accused Edison of outright theft. Tesla became increasingly dismissive of Edison in later years, claiming that Edison had himself invented rather little; rather Edison stole hundreds of patent designs from hapless inventors like Tesla.

A deep and ineffable, sense of loss for the siblings, who seems to have been taken away by circumstances beyond one's control. A longing for the imagined satisfaction of completed union with the heroic brethren.

Chronically discontent with one's military, competitive, athletic, heroic, muscular skills and achievements. Always wanting to be stronger, faster, more warlike. Yet, the animal instincts are too vague, and one cannot concentrate sufficient energy into the physique.

Ambivalent about the act of sexual pursuit. Wants to be sexually active and involved, but resigned to the flat feeling that one's sexual vitality is somewhat blunted.

(if other graha are involved in the Ketu yoga e.g. Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt , the scope of 'saintly' resignation and ambivalence may be broad, and psychologically complex.)

Unacknowledged anger and diffused competitive instincts. Likes to fight but may take bribes on the outcome, or work for the opposing team without scruple. Natural double-agent , or mercenary soldier. Has no moral or political attachment to the outcome of the war.

Inability to register A sense of personal certainty regarding the portfolio of Kuja: competition, sexual pursuit, warfare, invasion, exploration, discovery, passion. one may compete indefinitely, driven by a need to dominate, without ever achieving a clear public victory or a clear personal sense of successr.

Uncomfortable in their own skin. Ambivalent about winning or losing, yet very sensitive on the point. Sore loser.

Polarizing catalysis expressing clear physical directive. Ambivalent about the cycle of birth and death, and his place in it. Little patience for sustained efforts, and tendency toward passive-aggressive physical responser.

Behaviorally, the effective equivalent of [nīcha] Kuja . Not overly attached to the physical body. Therefore, can accept - and often surmount - tremendous risks of life and limb.

Beneficial for high-risk occupations where safety is a dream. By transit, stimulates disease of connective tissue, blood coagulation, and other disconnection types of imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.

In bhava-4

The childhood home is competitive and prone toward absenteeism of both parents [Ketu-4] . The adult native tends to replicate this pattern, bringing the warrior energies ofKuja into the adult home, along with Ketu's characteristic disengagement and disdain.
