Ketu Mahadasha and its Effects in Vedic Astrology

Ketu Mahadasha: Ketu is considered as one of the most dreaded planets. It is also known as the "South Node of Moon" or "The Dragon's Tail". As per the Ancient Hindu texts, when divine nectar was being distributed among the Gods, a demon disguised himself as a God and entered the crowd of Gods to drink nectar and become immortal.

Just when that demon started drinking the nectar, the Sun God & the Moon God identified that demon and Lord Vishnu who was distributing the nectar among the Gods, cut the head of that demon. But the demon had already drank the nectar by then so, he became immortal with his head and the remaining part of his body as two separate but immortal entities. To know how will Rahu-Ketu influence the major areas of life.

The head came to be known as Rahu and the remaining headless body as Ketu. Today, we will talk about Ketu.

Ketu is a planet that has incredibly strong and mostly ground shaking results in one's life. While Rahu entangles us in this world, Ketu on the other hand is known for taking us to our liberation. But this liberation does not come easily and more often than not, the malefic effects of Ketu pose hurdles in our movement to the liberation or Moksha aspect that this very same planet signifies.

The exact results of Ketu in a native's life, depend on which house it is positioned in, which houses it is aspecting, which planets it is conjunct with, which sign it is present in and so on & so forth. But the major effects of Ketu are seen in its Mahadasha or its primary and longest period of operation in one's life that comes for 7 years.

Effects of Ketu Dasha or Ketu Mahadasha in one's life can be analyzed broadly on the basis of the house that Ketu is placed, in one's natal horoscope.
