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.
Purva Ashadha Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra of higher education, analysis and research. It is also nakshatra of giving care to others. For more information on Purva Ashadha Nakshatra, please read this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/panaksh .
Sagittarius - As Purva Ashadha 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.
Venus - As Venus rules Purva Ashadha, Venus's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Ashadha.
Jupiter - As Jupiter rules Sagittarius, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Ashadha/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 Purva Ashadha Nakshatra – Now, Ketu is in Venus nakshatra but it is in sign ruled by Jupiter. It is a nakshatra of higher or specified education. It is like someone doing post-graduation or Doctorate or any type of higher education. So, Ketu in this nakshatra shows that person will go towards knowledge and higher education of research oriented subjects. They can have inclination towards education in matters of occult and spirituality too. It shows that in their past-life too they were learned or highly educated person. They can be very curious and always be learning something new. This education can also be in financial or creative field because of Venus ruling this nakshatra. More they learn and more they share the knowledge, better they will grow in life. So, works related with teaching, guiding and counselling are always on. Now, it is not necessary that it should be an academic education and person should have degrees to prove his knowledge. It is just that person attains knowledge at higher level by any means. As it is also nakshatra of rationalization, it shows that someone can love to segregate things or rationalizing things.
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. Same ability of reasoning and rationalizing things can be seen as knit-picking trait in relationship and can lead to some conflicts & disputes there.
Role of Venus – Venus’ placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction as Purva Ashadha's lord.
Role of Jupiter – Jupiter’s placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Sagittarius'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 Purva Ashadha. 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 Purva Ashadha can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
