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.
Moola Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of research, digging deep and knowing the hidden truth of things and people in life. For more information on Moola Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/Moolnaksh .
Sagittarius - As Moola is part of Sagittarius sign, Sagittarius and things represented by Sagittarius are important here. Sagittarius is the 9th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents many things related with the 9th house of horoscope like Religion, Knowledge, Wisdom, Higher Learnings, Gurus, Teachings from your Father etc. Besides it also represents Coaching, Universities, Professors and Preachers, Higher Wisdom, Written Law of the Land etc. Sagittarius has 2 and half nakshatra which are Mula, Purva-Ashadha and Uttara-Ashadha. Sagittarius' lord is Jupiter.
Ketu - As Ketu rules Moola, Ketu's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Moola.
Jupiter - As Jupiter rules Sagittarius, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Moola/Sagittarius.
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 Moola Nakshatra – Here, Ketu is in Jupiter’s sign and in own nakshatra. Normally Moola is connected with occult, mystical or spiritual side of life, so one generic interpretation of Ketu in Moola can be someone who is too good with occult, mystical or spiritual side of life as Ketu also represents similar things. Moola is represented by roots and it represents any kind of research work. So, Ketu in Moola can show a person who collects more and more information through research oriented activities and then he would like to share that information or knowledge with others. Now, it can be any type of research, i.e. medical, technical, and financial or as we discussed, the occult/spiritual side of 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. At the same time, Moola has representation of uprooting something and planting it back again. This looks like a normal process but think of a plant which is uprooted from a land and then again placed on another piece of land. This is a very transformative process for that plant. This means that in matters of relationship, this person can go through many major transformations in relationship life or even in his source of wealth. It can also bring relationship partners in life who themselves are going through troublesome time in relationship matters or in overall life. They can attract partners in life with whom they have some big past-life karma. So, this placement can still bring troubles in personal life but for knowledge sharing career, it can be a very good placement.
Role of Ketu – As As we are trying to interpret Ketu only, we need not to see Ketu's placement separately being Moola's lord.
Role of Jupiter – Jupiter’s placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Sagittarius 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 Moola. 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 Moola can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
