Rahu lord (moon) conjunct ketu
I think I have an interesting rahu/ketu placement because my rahu lord - moon - is conjunct ketu, I think the ketu effect becomes stronger because they're also in a saturnian sign. I'm still learning to grasp everything with it so far but pretty much all the info Ernst has provided has been on point. Although I will say I'm deeply into understanding my emotions (but will usually do it privately or with a counsellor), that could be because of many things in my chart but that could be because I have rahu conjunct mercury too.
I feel as though I've had lots of struggles with house axis areas 100% too - rahu in the 5th, ketu 11th - I have yet to stay with a job for longer than a few weeks and most of the time I don't work, lucky i have jupiter in the second house I guess bc I always have enough support to not be homeless. I've yet to tackle learning avasthas yet, but I feel like i can see a few different placements which could contribute to struggling with my rahu/ketu axis. Both of the final dispositors for rahu&ketu are mars in scorpio in the 9th house, up until now it never occurred to me to interpret the final dispositor *facepalm* I used to stop reading after I got to saturn in aries being the second last dispositor for rahu and ketu. I also have mercury in cancer which is supposed to be a great enemy if i remember correctly.
I wonder what everyone else's experience with these types of placements has been 😀
What signs are those in? Any planet shaming involved (for example, if the Sun or Mars are in a Saturnien sign as well?). The Moon is an enemy to Mercury so your Mercury in Cancer is starved if I am not mistaken. I would recommend you listen to that specific video re: Heart of Parashara and Mercury starved by the Moon. It’s worth it and I find the Lajjitaadi Avasthas to be a game changer.
I have Ketu in Gemini and Moon in Virgo so a Moon/Ketu same lord conjunction and, yes, very interested in understanding emotions but not exposing much of those in myself. Very poker face combo:p. Until more recently, diving more into my Rahu in 4th house. Houses and signs work holistically I find so it would be good to know which signs those placements are in for you:)
Let Mona have a look at your chart for career factors Lis! She´s good at that; may help you with those concerns.
Or... I can give it a try; if I don´t find it we´ll ask Mona, what do you say about that?
