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 Bhadrapada Nakshatra - It is a nakshatra related with mystical events and experiences. It is also nakshatra of duality. Please check this link for more info on Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra - https://www.astrosaxena.com/pbnaksha.
Aquarius - As Purva Bhadrapada is part of Aquarius sign, Aquarius and things represented by Aquarius are also important here. Aquarius is 11th sign of zodiac belt, hence it signifies the things and energy related with 11th house of horoscope, such as Gains, Desires, Hopes and Wishes, Large Organisations, Network Circles etc. Besides this, Aquarius also represents Scientific Thinking & Research, Uplifting the Society, Higher Goals & Rewards for all. Aquarius is made of another set of 2 and half Nakshatra, i.e. Dhanishtha, Satabhisha and Purva-Bhadrapada. Aquarius Lord is Saturn & Rahu.
Pisces - As Purva Bhadrapada is also a part of Pisces sign, Pisces and things represented by Pisces are also important here. As Pisces is the 12th sign of zodiac belt, it represents the same energy and things which are represented by 12th house such as Isolated Places, Spirituality, Imagination, Other Dimension or Other World etc. Besides these things, it also represents your Hidden Talents, Ability to work in background, Spiritual Self etc. Pisces is consisted of last 2 and half nakshatra, i.e. Purva-Bhadrapada, Uttara-Bhadrapada & Revati. Pisces' lord is Jupiter.
Saturn & Rahu - As Saturn-Rahu co-rule Aquarius, their position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Bhadrapada/Aquarius.
Jupiter - As Jupiter rules Purva Bhadrapada and Pisces, its position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Purva Bhadrapada/Pisces.
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 Bhadrapada Nakshatra – Ketu is in Jupiter’s nakshatra here. In Aquarius section, it is in sign ruled by Saturn-Rahu and in Pisces section, it is in Jupiter’s sign again. Purva Bhadrapada is nakshatra of initial spiritual experiences, austerities we perform and having a split direction or personality. Ketu is our past-life expertise. So, it shows that these people have already received initial spiritual experiences in their past-life like seeing light on forehead while meditating, chakra activation etc and have already performed the austerities to receive such experiences. Hence, in this life, they may not be much interested in performing same rituals again. We can also say that they can have similar spiritual experiences in this life without making much effort as it is their past-life expertise. It can also mean that in this life they must put efforts for higher spiritual experiences like out of body experiences, enlightenment and liberation etc. This is what they are supposed to do in this life. At the same time, Ketu represents split views which can give them unconventional views on spirituality or religions. Ketu represents illusion and representation of Purva Bhadrapada is a double-faced person. So, they can very well be a con-man in face of a spiritual person. So, it can be really difficult to judge these people whether they are genuinely spiritual or just showing it off to people. In Aquarius section, they can be more about serving others through these spiritual/mystical experiences. In Pisces section, they can be more involved in spirituality for their own evolution. We can also say that in Aquarius section, person wants to make business and gain out of it but in Pisces section, they can be more inclined to serve people spiritually without any desire of any return. As Purva Bhadrapada is represented by a double-faced person, it shows that they can be very good at acting.
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. This double-faced representation can impact their personal life too where they can get into split or separation in relationship or family. It can create difficulties in relationship life. This also shows possibility of multiple relationship, cheating or infidelity.
Role of Saturn & Rahu - Saturn-Rahu placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Aquarius lords.
Role of Jupiter - Jupiter placement is important to guide Ketu in right direction, being Pisces 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 Bhadrapada. 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 Bhadrapada can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
