Ketu in 10th house and its results
Ketu is no nonsense. Ketu is pure consciousness. Ketu is being ‘still’ – Ketu is the source of meditation – Ketu is not meditative – Ketu is meditation!
There was a King and he would care for his people, and so every night he would disguise himself as a common soldier and roam around his capital. And every night – he would see a young man sitting under a huge banyan tree. And he would be in deep meditation, there was a certain Aura around him, His peace, His bliss…the King became very curious, one night the King stepped down and walked towards the young man, as he came closer, he was touched by the fragrance that lingered around the young man. The young man was in deep meditation, his eyes were closed, but the King couldn’t control himself, he said “ Master…..” And the young man opened his eyes…the King looked into HIS eyes, and he was touched by HIS divinity – the King said “ I am very sorry for disturbing you, you were meditating…..”
And the young man smiled and said “I am not meditating, I am meditation.”
You see that is how Ketu is! Ketu is meditation. A Buddha lives in the orgasmic state for twenty–four hours, day in, day out. That is how Shri Ketu is!
And the 10th house is totally opposite to the nature of Shri Ketu! And so Ketu in 10th house – does the exact opposite of what Rahu does in 10th house! If Rahu in 10th makes you too much obsessed with your career – Shri Ketu simply makes the individual withdraw – and so individual is not too obsessed with career growth, he or she *is* okay with whatever work or career path they are currently in. So in a way you don’t see an Ambitious Alexander, the Great – and from the real growth perspective, true happiness perspective – this is a positive placement. Here – God simply wants you to enjoy – be at ease, relax while you attend to your daily chores. Here the person is not hypnotized to run and run and run for his or her career growth – until one day he drops dead – here person becomes less ambitious and that brings a certain element of joy in his or her life!
“How to find joy?” – And the answer is:
“Let your ambition disappear. Ambition is the barrier!” – Osho
Ambition never brings peace to you. Diogenes the great divine master was asking Alexander, the Great to rest for a while. HE said “ Come, join me, relax with me….” But Alexander was fired up with ambition, he said “ Master, I will come back and join you – but only after I conquer the whole world.”
Diogenes smiled. And Alexander left. He never was able to come back. He died – neither the whole world was conquered – nor the world *within* was realized! And this is what happens with every ambitious man or woman – they go on and on and on – just to drop some day – without ever experiencing the joy of life!
And so Ketu in 10th – becomes a positive placement, when the individual is spiritual by nature – then the 10th Ketu is a blessing in disguise! So to make the best of the Ketu in 10th placement – turn inwards, be more and more meditative – attend to prayers – and then this placement will altogether bring a totally new perspective towards life! And when Venus is also placed well – then it is an icing on the cake!
The only to be happy with Ketu in 10th – is to realize that you are not in this world for the purpose of running behind your career – rather you are more blessed to spend some quality time in nurturing your ‘self’ – and experience more joy, more peace!
“When you are happy you are ordinary, because to be happy is just to be natural. To be miserable is to become extraordinary.”
So just be yourself – just by being with yourself you would find immense joy – meditate, pray, love – and just go with the flow of life – that is the message of Ketu in 10th!
Just BE Yourself – don’t try to Become! By being in your self – you are always in peace, in bliss, in joy! And that is what Ketu in 10th is encouraging you to BE and not become!
Individuality is dignity, respectability is slavery. Let the mask of personality drop – and let the individuality within you come out – for the individuality of every person is far more beautiful than his or her personality – personality is not real – it is just a mask – individuality is real – and Shri Ketu is the perfect source to identify your true ‘self’ – your individuality. The positive indication of the 10th Ketu is simply based on what kind of person you are – extrovert or introvert – the greater the introvert – the greater is the possibility of experiencing many wonderful realizations through this placement!
Jai Shri Ganesha! Jai Guru!
