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.
Chitra - Chitra is nakshatra of creativity, works related with pictures or images, real estate and relationship conflicts etc. For more information on Chitra Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/citnaksh.
Virgo - As Chitra is a part of Virgo, Virgo sign and its representations also become important. Virgo is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical nature of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.
Libra - As Chitra is also a part of Libra, Libra sign and its representations also become important. Libra is the 7th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the energy and things related with 7th house of horoscope, i.e. Market Place, Business, Partnerships, Relations etc. Libra is sign of Balance, i.e. striking the Balance between 2 parties/ideologies or even at personal level between our own dilemmas. It is sign of Peace and Diplomacy. And this is what we are seriously looking for after the conflicts and disagreements of Virgo, i.e. Peace to prevail. At personal level, Libra is seen as sign of Relationships. Libra is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra named Chitra, Swati and Vishakha. Libra's lord is Venus only.
Mars - As Mars rules Chitra, Mars's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Chitra.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Virgo, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Chitra/Virgo.
Venus - As Venus rules Libra, Venus position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Chitra/Libra.
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 Chitra Nakshatra – Ketu is in nakshatra of Mars and in sign of Mercury in Virgo section. In Libra, it is in Venus’ sign. As Chitra is nakshatra of creativity and Ketu represents research, Ketu here can make a person research oriented in creative matters or their creative interests can be in matters of research, investigation, occult and spirituality. They have a kind-of past-life expertise over their creative interests. Mars-Ketu energy exchange can also make them very aggressive, especially in matters of ego conflicts. They can also be naturally good at dealing with real estate matters. They can have good number of properties but no desire to possess them. These ego clashes can be in field of their personal or professional life or both.
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. Due to mythological story involved, this nakshatra can bring ego clashes in their own relationships too. So, they have to work and learn to let-go of their ego.
Role of Mars - Mars placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Chitra's lord.
Role of Mercury - Mercury placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Virgo's lord.
Role of Venus – Venus placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Libra’s 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 Chitra. 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 Chitra can work in a chart.
