A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Ketu in Cancer, so the description given here may change for you if your Ketu is although in the sign of Cancer but in conjunction with or aspected by other planets. -
Just like Rahu, Ketu also represents illusion as both are illusionary planets but the difference is that Ketu is also the one who removes the illusion and brings enlightenment. Besides this, Ketu represents isolation, separation, spirituality,mystical world, other dimension means things related to alien world, 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.
Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's care, Emotions and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon.
Recently I have come across of the view that Rahu and Ketu don't have aspects on 5th or 9th house, for the simple reason that they are shadow planets and for aspects you need a sight not shadow. I am yet to verify it on at least 50 charts, so for now I will continue with traditional approach of 5th and 9th aspects of Ketu.
So this should be an easy one. When Ketu is in Cancer, you can find these people not displaying their emotions too much. They can be dettached and emotion-less people. This also shows lack of love from Mother or separation from mother which made them emotionless. It certainly had hit their peace of mind and now meditation is the only way they can get into peaceful condition. It also shows lack of desire to stay at home land or own home. Lack of desire to own a home. It shows a troublesome childhood at least emotionally, which made them like this.
Now, the question comes about the level at which Ketu is going to give results. So, it again would depend on the Nakshatra Ketu is sitting in. If Ketu is in Punarvasu Nakshatra, then we have to look for Jupiter's position as Jupiter is Punarvasu's lord. If Ketu is in Pushyami Nakshatra, then we need to check Saturn's placement. Again, If Ketu is in Ashlesha Nakshatra, then it is impacted by Mercury as Nakshatra lord.
As discussed earlier, as Cancer is ruled by Moon, we need to look at Moon's position. Moon's position will actually determine that how Ketu is going to behave in Cancer. Again, horoscope should be judged in its totality.
Tomorrow, Ketu in Leo.
