Ketu Graha Shanti Puja – An Effective Remedy for Ketu

Ketu Graha Shanti Puja is done to remove the negative effects of the shadow planet Ketu, which is the south node of the moon. It is the headless body, and Rahu is the head. That is why Rahu and Ketu are understood in congruence with each other. Rahu cannot exist without Ketu and vis-a-versa. Ketu is the mathematical point that is 180 degrees apart from Rahu. Rahu and Ketu are always 7 houses apart in the birth chart. There are certain divisional charts where both come together in the same house. It is important to know that Ketu is not an actual planet but a shadow planet of the planet Mars.

Ketu is exalted in Scorpio, debilitated in Taurus and Mool-trikon in the sign of Capricorn. It aspects the 5th and the 9th houses from the house where it is sitting. It rules confusion and enlightenment. It represents isolation, seclusion, solitary confinement, anywhere where you are just you, where you have no other thing to interact with or to know except for your thoughts. Ketu symbolises spirituality, moksha, enlightenment and meditation. Ketu in the 12th house shows liberation. Occult, mysticism, philosophers, maternal grandfather, grandmother, sages, yogis, ashrams, monasteries, spiritual sanctuaries, jail, asylum, isolated homes and dark places come under the purview of this shadow planet.

It also represents electricity, lightning, electrical engineering, programming, linguistics and communications. It is said to be the karaka of sharp objects, hence wounds and cuts by any sharp object come under Ketu.

Ketu is the past. The simplest example of Ketu is ‘Nostalgia’. Ketu represents spirituality on a level without bias. Its job is to separate you from 3 things that are unnecessary to realise – body, memory and senses. He takes the things you are attached to. Whenever Ketu comes in, people stop worrying about wealth. People tend to take spiritual paths during this time. Ketu is a karaka of intuition, and the body parts its rules are the pineal gland and pituitary gland. Ketu also gives karma of the past lives – be it good or bad. You meet people who are related to past lives during Ketu Mahadasha.
