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 Leo, so the description given here may change for you if your Ketu is although in the sign of Leo but in 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.
Leo is 5th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things associated with 5th house of horoscope like Love, Creativity, Arts, Being on Stage etc. Besides that, Leo is basically the Lion. This is the sign of feeling like King or Queen. Also, it is a sign of independence, Confidence, Ego, Self Esteem etc. Leo is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra namely Magha, Purva-Phalguni and Uttara-Phalguni. Leo's lord is Sun.
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 comes in to Leo, these people feel a natural isolation/separation from Creative Arts or any Artistic Pursuits. It doesn't mean they are not creative people, it simply means they have already done it with perfection in past life and they don't want to spend their time again on same things but if they are forced to perform, they will do it but with great isolated feelings. Its like you have some unpleasant memories about something in your life from your childhood, hence you don't even want to look at that side again in life as those memories haunt you. Leo is also the sign of Love, so due to Ketu in Leo, in early part of their life they meet such nerds in matters of love that it makes them think that they are better off being single or rather go for arranged marriage rather than getting into this Bollywood romance type of scenario. This is what I always feel as the way of indications from Universe that you are not meant for something. You get horrific experiences related with that thing which takes your mind away from that thing. So, Ketu in Leo brings isolation/separation from being Creative and following artistic pursuits as the Karma for these people are set at different place.
Now, the impact of Ketu will depend on Ketu's position in a particular Nakshatra. If Ketu is in Magha Nakshatra, then Ketu is in its own Nakshatra. If Ketu is in Purva-Phalguni Nakshatra, then Venus will impact Ketu's result. If Ketu is in Uttara-Phalguni Nakshatra, then Sun's position will be deciding Ketu's impact.
Also, as Sun is Lord of Leo, Sun's condition will have the highest say on Ketu's impact in Leo.
Tomorrow, Ketu in Virgo.
