Stuck on Ketu?
These days I am thinking A LOT about my Ketu/Rahu axis and I wanted to share and maybe get another perspective on the matter.
My Ketu is with Sun, Moon and it's lord Mercury in the 12th house (so it is pretty packed there). Rahu is sitting alone in the 6th and his lord is starved.
From the Rahu/Ketu course I have learned that whenever one of the nodes is sitting with its lord, the node in question is emphasized which creates an imbalance.
If our goal in life is ultimately Rahu and its house (and I am being bombarded with that statement everywhere) then how could a heavily influenced Ketu person go there? I am not looking for a magic trick, simply want to differentiate them better.
Even though I know D1 is the foundation and the vargas are adding nuances, I wonder if Rahu's lords being in a better dignity in D12 and D60 could give that push.
Thank you in advance!
That's such a good question! Because I also have a Ketu Moon conjunction in an air sign (and its super tight in the same degree). I can be so sensitive that I get completely thrown sideways by other people and the emotions that it totally throws me off track from the Rahu. So I also would like to hear what others say about this.
If your Ketu is in a sign of Mercury, I am guessing Rahu's lord is Jupiter and that is the planet that is starved? I wonder if the Avasthas video on Jupiter might help with you doing your Rahu. I can see Ernst has not done the videos for Jupiter yet in his course, but there is still the preliminary video on Jupiter on his youtube which I really liked. Have you watched it?
Ketu lord with ketu means first person has to resolve Ketu karmas and then they can go after success with rahu. Whichever planet ketu moving towards shows the planet being resolved
I have Ketu with the Sun and it's lord Venus, in my 2nd house and Rahu with Jupiter in my 8th house. Venus isn't doing so great since it's ashamed, agitated, and starved but it's in it's own sign, so it hangs in there...just barely. I definitely find it hard to get away from Ketu, especially since it's with my Sun. How can one escape their atma? Rahu's Lord is starved but it's in my 1st house and it's my AK and vargottama in my D9, so I can't quite tell whether Ketu's lord or Rahu's lord is the winner here. However, at the same time they're both significators of my Atma, so it's a peculiar balance for me.
I do consider my entry in to Vedic Astrology as my Rahu thing. Jupiter is supposed to describe your Guru, and my Jupiter is in Aries. So far, I think Ernst and his teachings have been a great help in keeping me sane.
Ah okay, so the starvation is happening because of the Venus? I have a similar thing I think, My Jupiter is secure (in pisces) but is also starved from aspect from Venus (in Virgo). I am not too sure what the exact balance of those two avasthas coming together are. I am still also not sure exactly why Venus starves Jupiter, I think I overlooked that.
I only have Ketu with the moon. Rahu is alone in Aries in the 5th, Mars its lord exalted in Cap. in the 2nd. So when I do creative stuff with passion, that's the zone, and its awesome. I also have a Sag. lagna, LOL, so there is just a lot of fire, and yes I can have some pretty strong, overbearing, and not always right things to say. The main reason though is I just like to talk.
The awesome passionate force feeling gets totally knocked sideways when I am too enmeshed in other people (the ketu moon libra 11th zone). So for me I don't feel its a balance, I feel its more of an on/off kind of thing unfortunately.
So like you, I am wondering how to not get knocked so much off track by that shit.
What Dasha are you in right now?
This is the video I was talking about, I love it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agNWxpdiVTc&t=2s
