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.
Bharani – Bharani is nakshatra of death and re-birth, occult/hidden side of life and instabilities. This nakshatra is also connected with sexuality and attraction. As it is ruled by Venus, the significance of wealth, finance and creativity naturally comes to this nakshatra.

Aries – As Bharani is part of Aries, Aries sign and its representations become important here. Aries is the 1st sign of zodiac belt, so it represents the things and energy of 1st house of horoscope like Self, Personality etc. Besides that, Aries is the sign of our individuality, our aggression, our actions, our competitive ability etc. Aries is ruled by Mars and it is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras named Ashwini, Bharani and Krittika.
Mars – As Mars rules Aries, Mars’ position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Aries.
Venus – Likewise as Venus rules Bharani, Venus's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Bharani.
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 Bharani Nakshatra – Here, Ketu is in Venus ruled nakshatra & in sign of Mars. Bharani by nature itself is difficult energy. It represents instabilities, death & re-birth and major changes in life. Occult side of life end high sexual desires are other common significances of Bharani. So, Ketu in Bharani can make someone very much interested in occult side of life. They can be all into things like Astrology, Palmistry & Tantra etc. They can be equally interested in re-incarnation theories & conspiracy theories. They can also be in medical side of work, especially related with Surgery. They can easily make their career in occult side of life & they can be perfect with it. Any work related with Sex & Procreation is also a possible career option. As Venus rules Bharani, they can also be in financial research kind of things. It can make their career in financial nature of work too.
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 Bharani itself represents Sex, this position can bring sexual dissatisfaction in relationship. Ketu in relationship matters in any chart is difficult.
Role of Mars – Mars's placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Aries's lord.
Role of Venus – Venus’ placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Bharani lord.
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 Bharani. 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 Bharani can work in a chart.
