“Ketu Grah, Tantr Mantra, Moksha Durghatna, Shok ka Karak 

             In astrology, Ketu Grah is considered the significator of Moksha. Ketu is associated with sudden accidents, sorrow, and is a causative factor of Tantra Mantra practices. In astrology, Rahu is considered the head of the serpent, and Ketu is considered the tail. The serpent’s mouth contains poison, and its tail has power. Ketu is said to be similar to Mangal (Mars) in some aspects, but it is a more powerful and intense planet compared to Mars. Ketu indicates the practice of Tantra-Mantra and rigorous penance. It is a cruel planet that signifies obstacles in progeny and miscarriage.

Ketu’s mythological perspective is that during the churning of the ocean, Rahu assumed a divine form and consumed the nectar, but Vishnu severed Rahu’s head with his discus. Due to drinking the nectar, Rahu’s body remained alive. At that time, the upper part of the severed head became Rahu, and the lower part became famous as Ketu. Ketu does not have a head, so it lacks the ability to think or contemplate anything. When Ketu is in the ascendant in someone’s horoscope, the individual tends to act without thinking, leading to significant losses and difficulties during the Ketu dasha.

Friends and Foes of Ketu:

Ketu is considered the ruler of Scorpio. It has a special influence on the soles of the feet and is a planet with a cruel and tamasic nature. Ketu is exalted in Sagittarius and Scorpio and debilitated in Taurus and Gemini. There are differences among astrologers regarding Ketu’s exaltation and debilitation; some consider it exalted in Sagittarius and debilitated in Gemini, while others believe it is exalted in Scorpio and debilitated in Taurus. Ketu behaves with benevolence and friendship with Jupiter and considers the Sun and Moon as its enemies. Ketu always remains 180 degrees away from Rahu in the horoscope. Ketu’s friendly signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces, while its hostile signs are Cancer and Leo.

“Areas governed by Ketu:

                   Ketu is associated with specific parts of the body. It rules the lower part of the body, including the region from the coccyx bone to the anus and the area between the anal opening and the external genitalia. The influence of Ketu extends to the body part that falls under its conjunction or aspect with other planets.

Ailments under Ketu’s influence:

                   Ketu is considered the significator of painful diseases such as Grahbhandar, skin disorders, and afflictions suffered by individuals of lower social status. It is also linked to the discomfort and troubles faced by such individuals.

Business related to Ketu:

                  Ketu is associated with the pharmaceutical industry and businesses related to the production of medicines. It has connections with literature, spirituality, religious texts, occult sciences, secret knowledge, and businesses related to herbal products. Additionally, Ketu influences professions such as pandits, priests, astrologers, tantriks, creators of yantras for deities, spiritual gurus of any religion, temples, spiritual organizations, and companies involved in the production of Ayurvedic medicines. Businesses associated with the planet that Ketu is conjunct or in harmony with are also under its influence.

Places related to Ketu:

              Locations where three roads meet, places for meditation, tantric practices, and areas for the production of medicines fall under Ketu’s domain. Narrow alleys are also considered to be governed by Ketu.


              Ketu is a malevolent planet associated with skin diseases and painful ailments. It is the significator of tantra-mantra practices and liberation. Similar to the power in a serpent’s tail, Ketu is potent like Mars and is a sudden causative factor of accidents and sorrow. In Ketu’s Mahadasha, individuals may experience sudden financial gains, benefits in progeny and marriage, and an increase in regular income. However, during Ketu’s debilitated phase, individuals may face hardships, opposition from siblings, and challenges in starting new endeavors. Ketu leads humans towards detachment from worldly pleasures, connecting them towards the ultimate goal of liberation. Ketu frees individuals from various kinds of bonds and directs them towards the Supreme Being.”
