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.
Punarvasu - It is a nakshatra of rehabilitation and recovery process. It is very closely connected with after-care medical activities. It can also be a nakshatra of counselling. For more information on Punarvasu Nakshatra, please check this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/punnaksh.
Gemini - As Punarvasu is part of Gemini, Gemini sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Gemini. Gemini is the 3rd sign of zodiac belt, so it represents many things related with 3rd house of horoscope like, Communication Skills (either written, oral or even by sign language), Marketing, Business etc. It is a sign basically related with communications and business ideas. Gemini is divided into 2 and half nakshatra of Mrigashira, Ardra and Punarvasu. Gemini's lord is Mercury, which is significator of Communications.
Cancer - As Punarvasu is also a part of Cancer, Cancer sign and its representations become important when any planet is in Punarvasu/Cancer. Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's Care, Emotions, Taking Care of Others and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon, which again represents almost same things which Cancer and 4th house represents.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Gemini, Mercury’s position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Gemini.
Moon - As Moon rules Cancer, Moon's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Punarvasu/Cancer.
Jupiter - As Punarvasu is ruled by Jupiter, Jupiter's position and dignity will also have an important role in functioning and results of any planet in Punarvasu.
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 Punarvasu Nakshatra – Ketu is in Jupiter’s nakshatra here. In Gemini section, it is in sign of Mercury but in Cancer section it in enemy’s sign of Moon. Punarvasu comes after chaos and instability of Ardra. Hence, Punarvasu represents any kind of rehabilitation work which helps Universe to strike back the balance of normalcy after chaos. So, these people can be naturally good at providing services to others after any catastrophic event. They keep a past-life expertise at healing/helping people. Even if they are serving people at individual level, then also they are helping people to recover from the chaos and major changes of their lives. They can be easily seen as counsellors, healers or someone working in disaster control teams or rehabilitation groups. In Gemini section of Punarvasu, they can be counsellors or teachers whereas in Cancer section of Punarvasu, they can be working directly as care-givers or healer, as that’s what the nature of Cancer is. As Ketu represents alternate healing too, they can be helping people through alternate medication too. They can be spiritual healers too.
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.
Role of Mercury – Mercury's position will become important in functioning and results of Ketu in Punarvasu/Gemini as Mercury rules Gemini.
Role of Moon – Moon's position will become important in functioning and results of Ketu in Punarvasu/Cancer as Moon rules Cancer.
Role of Jupiter – Likewise, Jupiter’s position will become important in functioning and results of Ketu in Punarvasu/Cancer as Jupiter rules Punarvasu.
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 Punarvasu. 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 Punarvasu can work in a chart.
