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.
Jyeshtha Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of feeling better or higher than others. It represents orderly and justifiable people. It is the most closely connected nakshatra with occult and mystic. For more info on Jyeshtha Nakshatra - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jyeshtnaksh .
Scorpio - As Jyeshtha 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.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Jyeshtha, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Jyeshtha.
Mars-Ketu - As Mars-Ketu rules Scorpio, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Jyeshtha/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 Jyeshtha Nakshatra – Ketu is in own sign here and in Mercury’s nakshatra. Ketu and Jyeshtha both are all about occult side of life as it is represented by round talisman. So, these people can have lots of interests in the occult and mystical side of life. They can be in any research oriented work. At the same time, Jyeshtha is nakshatra of administration and working with people. So, they can have past-life expertise at managing people and work with them. They can be good at rationalizing and they can also be justifiable. Regardless of age, they can behave in a very mature way in life as Jyeshtha means the eldest one. They may have no desire to gain high authority positions in career as they have already achieved it. At the same time, if they are pushed to gain authority then they can gain it easily.
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, same Jyeshtha can take up trait of ego and they can have ego clashes. Scorpio’s energy of instability is anyways not good for relationship.
Role of Mercury – Mercury placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Jyeshtha lord.
Role of Mars-Ketu - Mars placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Scorpio 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 Jyeshtha. 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 Jyeshtha can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
