Ketu's transit in Chitra Nakshatra, 2023

As Ketu has already entered in Chitra Nakshatra as per Mean Nodes and about to enter as per True Nodes in 10 days’ time, it is time that we should try to understand the probable results of this transit. As Ketu is headless, it seems that’s why it remains the most difficult to understand its positions or transits as we also can become headless while interpreting.

Let’s look at important energies 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 Nakshatra is from 23.20 degree of Virgo to 6.40 degree of Libra. So, Chitra Nakshatra is in front of Ashwini Nakshatra from 0.00 degree to 6.40 degree of Libra. 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 -

Libra - As Swati is 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.

Virgo - 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 skills 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 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury..

True Node Vs Mean Node – There are mainly 2 ways of calculating the transits of Rahu and Ketu. They are known as True Nodes and Mean Nodes. As per Mean Nodes calculations, Ketu has moved into Chitra Nakshatra on 26th June, 2023 but as per True Nodes Ketu will move into Chitra nakshatra on 9th July, 2023. Again, I am not going into debate of which one is more correct as the difference between the two is less than 1 degree. So, follow whichever fits your understanding. If you want more info on it, then please search with “True Node Vs Mean Node” or like terms. For me, Mean Nodes work better. These links may further help you - and

Now, here are my interpretations of Ketu’s transit in Chitra Nakshatra (from June, 2023 to Feb, 2024) -

1. As I said, as Ketu is headless and not an outgoing planet, it is difficult to see its results in outer life or materialistic life. As it is an introvert energy which implodes within, it is better to interpret Ketu’s results within ourselves rather than in outer world.

2. Also, as Ketu remains a malefic energy, most of its results may not be aligned with our materialistic desires. So, we need to be receptive towards the way Ketu functions in our lives.

3. The easiest way to interpret any transit is to take significations of transiting Planet and combine it with significations of Houses/Signs or Nakshatras, it is transiting and then come up with an interpretation based on such exchange of energy.

4. Also, this transit of Ketu in Chitra will give us glimpses of results of Ketu in Virgo as Chitra spreads from Virgo to Libra. For that purpose too, this transit can be useful.

5. Ketu is in nakshatra of Mars and in sign of Venus in Libra section. 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.

6. It also means that, during this transit, people can resume their long-forgotten creative interests or even their past-life expertise in creative field and start working on it seriously.

7. Ketu in Chitra also means that Rahu is in Ashwini. As mythological story of both these nakshatras is identical and surrounds around ego clashes in relation or letting-go of ego in relation, these two transits together can bring many such situations in relationship life where people would have to let-go of their ego in relationship.

8. As Ketu and Chitra both are related with Psychology, we can see people going towards research or education in Psychology related field or we can see something new coming out from study and research of human consciousness.

9. Chitra represents other occult subjects also like Tarot Cards or Astrology. So, people can be drawn towards the occult or mystical side of life.

10. As Ketu and Chitra’s lord Mars both are malefic, this energy exchange between Mars-Ketu can bring events which are sudden and transformative. So, we need to be careful against accidents, sudden events or surgeries. It will be more so when Mars also transits into Chitra Nakshatra in Sep, 2023.

11. This transit can also make someone go towards construction and new creations in life as it deity is Universal Architect Lord Vishwakarma. Pictorial or Sign Languages can be very popular during this time.

12. Ketu in Chitra/Virgo can make people very perfectionist and knit-picking over every small fault of others. Again, better use of this energy will be if we look at our own faults rather than others’ faults.

13. People can realize their hidden talents, skills or creative abilities, which could be their past-life expertise, during this transit.

14. Ketu in Libra and Saturn in Aquarius show that two strong malefics are transiting Air Signs. Air element represents travelling (especially Air travel), Freedom, Business and Communications. So, we can see people having lots of issues in these matters as Ketu and Saturn continue their transits.

15. During majority of this transit, Ketu in Libra will aspect Saturn in Aquarius. As Saturn-Ketu energy exchange reduces the results to minimum, it means that we can’t expect much of the results from the house where Aquarius falls in our chart. There can be lots of stress in that house related things.

16. At the same time, Ketu’s energy can always be well utilized for meditation and other spiritual activities. These activities can also bring awareness of how to best utilize our independence or freedom. So, we should also become aware of utilizing these energies in productive or creative ways.

17. Overall, this transit can be best utilized if we go within and work on our talents, creativity and past-life expertise rather than getting into ego clashes with people.

Please meditate regularly for awareness factor. Have a conscious transit of Ketu in Chitra Nakshatra.
