Today, Ketu in Aries.
A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Ketu in Aries, so the description given here may change for you if your Ketu is although in the sign of Aries but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets. -
Just like Rahu, Ketu also represents illusion as both are illusionary planets but the difference is that Ketu is also the one who removes the illusion and brings enlightenment. Besides this, Ketu represents isolation, separation, spirituality,mystical world, other dimension means things related to alien world, also represents Son, Dog, Intuition, research ability, curious nature, things which we have already achieved in past life and not much concerned to perform in this life.
Aries is the 1st sign of zodiac belt, so it represents the things and energy of 1st house of horoscope like Self, Personality etc. Besides that, Aries is the sign of our individuality, our aggression, our actions, our competitive ability etc. Aries is ruled by Mars and it is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras named Ashwini, Bharani and Krittika.
Recently I have come across of the view that Rahu and Ketu don't have aspects on 5th or 9th house, for the simple reason that they are shadow planets and for aspects you need a sight not shadow. I am yet to verify it on at least 50 charts, so for now I will continue with traditional approach of 5th and 9th aspects of Ketu.
So when Ketu is in Aries, you won't find these people as aggressive and active towards any goal in life and that's because they have been active and aggressive in their past lives and now they don't want to spend their time over it anymore. So, you will find these people not too much into sports and competing with others. In corporations and jobs, they will shy away from leadership roles. But at the same time, as they have accomplished all these things in their past lives, they are actually masters at it. So in any case, if these leadership roles are thrown upon them then after initial reluctance they will surprise themselves by completing the task much better than what they expected from themselves. That's only because they are master at it from past lives. These qualities are in-built and at the given time come into fore. At the same time, Aries sign represents our individuality and having Ketu there means this person may not have sense of self-worth. They don't feel that they on themselves deserve anything in this world. They find their sense of self-worth from where Rahu is, means in this case from Libra sign. As Aries is ruled by Mars and Ketu is nothing but shadow of Mars, this whole scenario can change drastically if these people have Mars sitting with Ketu or aspecting Ketu. Then these people will be really competitive and going all-out to win the race. So, even the slightest change in horoscope can change the situation great deal.
Again, the nakshatra Ketu is in, will have great say in Ketu's functioning, When it is in Ashwini Nakshatra, it is in its own Nakshatra, hence good position. If it is in Bharani Nakshatra, then Ketu is in Venus nakshatra and we need to check Venus position. Similarly, If it is in Krittika Nakshatra, then results of Ketu will be impacted by Sun's position in horoscope as Sun is lord of Krittika.
As stated above, Mars is lord of Aries, hence Mars is going to have biggest impact on Ketu's working here.
Tomorrow, Ketu in Taurus.
