Ketu in Vedic Astrology
Well, Ketu in Vedic Astrology is the considered major identity in having one’s destiny. Since it is not the planets but may have more virtual energy or hidden strength in one’s destiny. Since it does not have any identity, It is know as Shadow planet. This is the reason that it is considered as isolated and detach planet. Thus, it shadows with isolation and detachments in one’s life. It will also create eclipse in everyone’s life and would isolate things from such.
We can say that Ketu is the functional planet for detachments and emptiness in one’s life. Things may be out of control in this period or you may lose things related to Ketu and the house it is in. Let me give you an example that a person having Ketu in 4th house would lose his/her mother or the health of native will be compromised. It might also indicate the death of grandmother at native’s early age. I have experienced a distance-loving relationship with my mother while the native has many complaints with my mother and family members too.
Ketu and Newtons Third Law
In the same way, If Ketu gives emptiness, and then that space needs to be filled by something. isn’t it. In that loneliness or lost, the native could gain any material gains of wealth, name and fame. Remember Newton’s 3rd law states that there must be an equal and opposite reaction. If Ketu takes then that taking has to be replaced by. isn’t it? For example, if Ketu is placed in the 4th house of Horoscope, the health of the mother might be compromised giving the in-depth awareness of Meditation and 4th house things like average then powerful Subconscious mind.
Ketu acts like the planets sharing the same house or the Rashi it sits in. It becomes more powerful than we have imagined. So, it is the best way to remember the position of Ketu; the Rashi it is placed in and the lords of that house or Planets itself.
Now, Ketu in house birth-chart (Lagna chart) is at your 11th house. This 11th house is of gains, friends, networking, sisters and older siblings, goals, hopes, dreams, aspirations, legs, ankles, calves, Kama (desire). Now it is the time what you lose, you may not have sisters, no elder ones, no desire to make friends, pain in legs (may take the pain from the leg at its dash if was before), and no desire to hang out with friends or girls(need to check Venus position for girl).
Meanwhile, I have found that during Ketu Mahadasha or Subdasha, people start to research for religions philosophy, religious books, spirituality (isolation from the physical world), old religious books, Ketu depicts hand and maybe a writer, a person who does the operation and separates body in the hospital. Ketu is more related to spirituality and it seems someone is passing through loneliness as a native might want to dive to know the self. This must* or maybe the favourable time for the native to practice meditation and find a Guru to teach meditation and renounce the world.
Is Ketu Destructive?
Meanwhile, Ketu is in Rohini Star Nakshatra and the Star-lord is the moon and the house lord is Venus. This could signify not good relation with opposite sex, wife probably or would avoid marriage. Not everyone born at the same time would have this, more or less according to the degree. It is everyone or the native who is responsible to know his/ her condition of Ketu and respond to it.
Yes, Ketu could give (maybe not directly but may provide space too) gains through the books related to Ketu itself. It would create a space for money being in the house of gain. let’s simplify, Ketu would give you writing skills, and you could write as much as you can since this is the house of friends and networking, it would be the best time to meet publisher friends and make your life easy. It might give you inspiration and hopes to do more in writing things, doing research and much more in a similar field and document it in a book.
Oh, Ketu is mischievous and can directly control brains, so it would increase your brains neuron activity to have more intuitive things in life in the period of Ketu Mahadasha which would be helpful to make gains.
Inheritance is not related to Ketu, but for example, the 11th house is directly related to the 11th sign Saturn and Saturn here is in its own home. Saturn creates delays where it sits and in Ketu Mahadasha it is hard for me to tell exactly what you receive but since Ketu in the 11th houses does not give any loss to the native.
Few get gains from accidents. How? Insurance probably.
What about you? Where is Ketu in your chart?

Ketu, Spirituality and Awareness
I have seen many general people along with Astrologer struggling to understand the true meaning of Ketu in Vedic Astroloy. It is not their fault as it depends on their level of Awareness and Meditation in the past. Or say it depends on their Ascendant Chart, position of Lords, Signs and their effects. But if they condemn that they are or own their wisdom then they limit their minds to know Ketu as a general planet, a shadow planet. But they have missed the point that this Ketu acts as you if you do not become aware of its power.
When everythings ends, the time of Ketu starts to rise your consciousnes to higher level. Here, the ending is of materialistics desire. The desires that Rahu grabs all humans minds with. If you are reading this and is getting few points or understanding only a little, you are the one to know that Ketu is bad, Ketu takes all materialitics possision and makes your alone and lonely.
But, if you are aware of all incidents happening and what my point is, while reading this, Now you know actual Ketu, It can give you material possession as well. You can be rich and a begger at the same time. For example, Buddha, when returned from Jungle could also be a king and rich, he had that choice too. Secondly, the best example for Ketu in Vedic Astroloy, is the Osho, he was the lonilier one, alone, ingnored by many countries, no any bank balance or desire to have any but still had ride of Rolls Royace cars, Millions of Followers and all the material Possession that you could imagined.
