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 Scorpio, so the description given here may change for you if your Ketu is although in the sign of Scorpio 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.
Scorpio is the 8th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things and energy related with 8th house of horoscope like Sudden Events, Secrecy, Dark World, Occult Science, Research, Inheritance, Serving Others, Taxes etc. Besides these things sign of Scorpio also represent transformation, means changing the whole nature upside down. Now with Scorpio, scary things start in Astrology. This is one sign which is favorite of every Astrologer, because it has maximum secrets, so every astrologer gets maximum scope of researching. This is sign about which no one can tell with precision that what will happen to the planets in it, as it is sign of secrecy itself. Scorpio is one sign where no planet is happy. Scorpio is also one of those unique signs which has 2 rulers, i.e. Mars and Ketu. Scorpio is the sign which shows our Karmic Debt in this world. Scorpio consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatras, i.e. Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha.
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 Ketu in Scorpio provides a tricky situation to interpret. Either it can make a person a perfect psychic/occultist or surgeon, or it can make a person a Criminal. And the final conclusion always depends on the position/condition of Mars as the Scorpio Lord. 1st of all, as Ketu represents Mysticism and Scorpio is all about Mysticism and Occult World, this position of Ketu gives lots of psychic abilities. If this person goes through Ketu MD and Meditates then for sure world is going to be benefited from the abilities of this person. Scorpio is also a sign of Surgeries and Ketu represents research and investigation and making things transparent. So, this position also makes a great surgeon but it all depends on Mars condition. If Mars is well placed, then this is a beneficial position. If Mars is badly placed and Ketu receives malefic conjunctions or aspect then this position can even show a terrorist, criminal or a killer. So to decide this position, one has to carefully examine all the details of horoscope including all the conjunction and aspect of malefic/benefic planets. That's why, it is a tricky position.
Again, impact of Ketu's effect in Scorpio will be controlled by the various nakshatra Ketu might be in. Like, if Ketu is in Vishakha nakshatra, then we need to check Jupiter's position as Jupiter is lord of Vishakha. If Ketu is in Anuradha nakshatra, then Saturn will impact Ketu's result. If Ketu is in Jyeshtha nakshatra, then it is impacted by Jyeshtha's lord Mercury.
Last but not the least, as I said we have to look at position and conditions both lords of Scorpio, i.e. Mars and Ketu, to finally come to know what is going on with this Ketu here. So, overall reading is much more necessary than a particular planet in sign position.
Tomorrow, Ketu in Sagittarius.
