So, going to Rahu means exiting out of the collective unconsciousness to experience oneself as an individual consciousness. Would that be a correct way to paraphrase it?
Then, what does it mean to go back to Ketu? I can understand about it when we die, but how does it work while still living? Have you covered it in one of your courses?
@manisha, I have Ketu in Gemini, if I focus on the word "communication" about that sign, and if I embrace Rahu in Sagittarius, instead of communicating about facts and information, in a social butterfly way, I communicate instead with purpose and focus. Or I communicate intuitively, maybe channeling (who know where that will take me 😝). So, the core, communication, is still there, but it's improved. Just an example of what I understand of going back to Ketu and something I can personally relate to.
ketu is the flag of the territory known, conscious level.
rahu is the foreign of the territory, unconscious level.
when I put the known in the unknown, the ring closes! samaadhi! ❤️
As for outer planets, it is not good to have Pluto conjunct the 11th Campanus cusp. At least I wouldn't recommend it. The networks we build and profits we gain will crumble, turn against us, or scatter like the wind.
Or maybe Pluto just doesn't do well in Venus signs. Maybe there are Lajjitadi Avashthas of the outer planets that have yet to be discovered? This wouldn't help unpleasant house cusp placements though.
Pluto would probably help us the most in the 6th or possibly the 8th. Neptune might be nice and at home in the 12th, and possibly the 4th or 8th. Uranus would probably be the most fun in the 5th, and maybe the 2nd, 3rd, or 11th. But this is just a guess.
I would think the outer planets would cause the most turmoil, difficulty, or isolation in the quadrants (maybe Neptune in the 4th could be very spiritual, though.), as they are the pillars of a stable and successful worldy life. I know someone with nothing but outer planets in the quadrants and they have an extremely painful and difficult existence. Not very grounded.
Pluto in the 3rd house is pretty difficult too...mine is conjunct Mercury.
