Let’s look at important things here –
Ketu – Ketu represents Isolation, Separation, Spirituality, Mystical World, Other Dimension means things related to Alien World. It also represents Son, Dog, Intuition, Research Ability, Curious Nature, things which we have already achieved in past life and not much concerned to perform in this life.
Anuradha Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of following heart's desires or being devotional about something or someone. It is also related with mystical side of life. For more information on Anuradha Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/anunaksh .
Scorpio - As Anuradha is a part of Scorpio, Scorpio sign and its representations also become important. Scorpio is the 8th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things and energy related with 8th house of horoscope like Sudden Events, Secrecy, Dark World, Occult Science, Research, Inheritance, Serving Others, Taxes etc. Besides these things sign of Scorpio also represent transformation, means changing the whole nature upside down. This is one sign which is favorite of every Astrologer, because it has maximum secrets, so every astrologer gets maximum scope of researching. This is sign about which no one can tell with precision that what will happen to the planets in it, as it is sign of secrecy itself. Wherever Scorpio falls in your chart, you may have had biggest challenges in making things related with that house more stable. Scorpio is also one of those unique signs which has 2 rulers, i.e. Mars and Ketu. In Western Astrology, Pluto also co-rules Scorpio. All this makes Scorpio a chaotic sign. Scorpio consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatras, i.e. Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha.
Saturn - As Saturn rules Anuradha, Saturn's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Anuradha.
Mars-Ketu - As Mars-Ketu rules Scorpio, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Anuradha/Scorpio.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Ketu in Anuradha Nakshatra – Ketu is in own sign here and in nakshatra ruled by Saturn. Anuradha is nakshatra of following your heart's desire. Ketu represents past-life expertise. Ketu in Anuradha can show a person who has past-life expertise at following his heart’s desire. It means that they can go against the set trends of society. As Anuradha also represents being rebellious, it shows their innate ability to be a rebellious in their ways, either in personal life or professional life. They can also be naturally devoted to whatever they do in life. But all these traits will bring result when they get into situation where they had to follow their heart’s desire, be rebellious and be devoted towards something. As all the nakshatras of Scorpio sign are naturally connected with occult side of life, Ketu here can also bring results in field of research/occult matters and they can serve people through it.
As Ketu itself represents separation, split, break-up etc, if Ketu is getting involved in relationship matters in a chart, it is never a good placement. Person will be feeling separated in relationship either physically or mentally or both ways. This will bring a tug-of-war kind of result where they may feel separated when they are in relationship but when they are single, they may desire relationship. As Ketu remains illusion, possibility of cheating is high in relationship. In relationship matters, as Anuradha is connected with Radha-Krishna, it is nakshatra of great devotion. It means that they can treat their partner as their God. This can also bring a love story which is quite rebellious in nature like going against caste/religion/traditions of Society. At the same time, relationship life will have its own instabilities and ups & downs.
Role of Saturn – Saturn placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Anuradha's lord.
Role of Mars-Ketu - Likewise, Mars placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Scorpio's lords.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Ketu in Anuradha. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Ketu in Anuradha Nakshatra can work in a chart.
