There are nine planets that are analyzed as per the principles of Vedic Astrology to decode the destiny of a native. Each of these nine planets have their own characteristics and significance.

How did Ketu came into existence?
Once the Gods & Demons decided to churn the Celestial Ocean and divide the auspicious things that come out among themselves. But their primary objective was to derive the 'Nectar of Immortality'.
However, as soon as the Nectar came out, a fight started between the Gods & Demons to grab and drink the Nectar first. Seeing all this, Lord Vishnu took the form of an extremely beautiful girl called Mohini and offered to distribute the Nectar equally among both the parties.
Agreeing to this arrangement both God as well as Demons sat in two lines facing each other waiting for their turns. But Lord Vishnu knew that the Demons after becoming immortal will wreak havoc in all the worlds. Therefore, He in the form of Mohini through His powers, switched the pot of Nectar with a pot of an ordinary liquid while feeding the Demons and resumed the pot of Nectar while feeding the Gods.
One Demon saw this switch and took on a disguise of a God and secretly sat in the line of the Gods. As Mohini (Lord Vishnu) came to feed him the Nectar, the Sun & Moon Gods identified the Demon and asked Mohini to stop feeding him the Nectar. But it was too late as the Demon has already drank the Nectar.
Immediately Lord Vishnu took His original form and annoyed by this behaviour, cut the head of the Demon with His Discuss. However, since the Demon had already consumed the Nectar, He became two immortal entities- One with just the head that came to be known as Rahu and the rest of the headless body that came to be known as Ketu! Since that very day, both Rahu & Ketu became arch enemies of both Sun & Moon and have been negatively affecting them in the form of eclipses from time to time. But in this article let us move further with Ketu.
What does Ketu represent?
Ketu is the most mystical planet in Vedic Astrology and although it is considered as natural malefic but its effects on a native cannot be ruled as outright negative. Interestingly Ketu is the natural significator of Moksha or Ultimate Liberation.
The most famous characteristic of Ketu is inclination towards spirituality and occult sciences along with detachment from the outer world. Ketu also represents dissatisfaction from many domains of life such as marriage and career. Ketu is also associated with 'out of the body or after life experiences'.
Material or worldly comforts and Ketu do not go along together. This mystical planet signifies true wisdom and progress on the path of asceticism and enlightenment. Ketu is a planet of infinite possibilities in life if placed properly in the horoscope of a native and can cause sudden & severe damages as well if not conducive for a native.
Transit of Ketu
Ketu takes around 18 months to transit through one sign of the Zodiac Belt and so does Rahu as both the planets are always 180 degrees opposite from each other. The presence of Ketu is felt even more during its transitory movement in a sign.
The house in which that particular sign is placed in the natal chart of a native gives strong results as per the condition of Ketu for him/her during that particular time and also as per the state & strength of Ketu in his/her natal chart. Get Personalised Rahu Ketu Horoscope 2019
