Ketu in 6th House: Ketu is the most psychic planet and wherever it is placed it gives a mystic connection with the effects of that house. When strong and working through its higher principles it elevates the mind to a state that is beyond the material level and then it unfolds a new path to attain liberation.
There is a spirit of detachment or “Vairagya” with Ketu’s position in the chart. Therefore a separative and serious force actually helps a person grow spiritually. And this contracting force, when associated with the 6th house, gives some sort of severity in its way to deal with duties linked to the 6th house.
Significance of 6th House and Ketu
The 6th house in Astrology mainly suggests disease, debt, and enemy According to Parashar Rishi, this is the house of ‘Shad Ripu.’ This means six kinds of enemies a person can face in his lifetime. This involves Kaam, Krodh, Lobh, Moh, Ahankar, and Matsya.
The 6th house indicates sickness, competition, employees, subordinates, or servants. Even the debts, hatred, hygiene, sanitation, fighting spirit, accidents, and misfortunes are discerned from the 6th house.
To understand the position of Ketu in the 6th house, you will have to analyze three factors, House, sign, sign lord, and planets conjunct with Ketu. Now Ketu gives expertise related to its house position. That skill which one has mastered in his last birth. So when Ketu is in the 6th house, it gives magical skills to handle obstacles in any task. Therefore this position tells how to deal with those enemies, debts, disease, and even losses faced by your partner.
Karaka Planets of 6th house – Mars/ Mercury
Mars and Mercury, both are considered the karaka of the 6th House. And Mercury is also the lord of the natural zodiac. So now Mars, Mercury plus Ketu Rashi significations will be added to Ketu results. Ketu represents roots, in-depth analysis, Mercury governs communications, calculations, and information technology, and Mars will add action and energy to this house.
Now in the 6th house of services and mundane jobs, Ketu can give detachment as it is a separatist planet. Ketu has mastered the skills of being subordinate, he has now the skill of managing controversies, miserliness, and even losses faced by spouse or partner.
Marriage: Ketu in 6th house
The 6th house is 12th from the 7th house of relationship. Now 12th house represents a loss to the partner or spouse. Ketu is connected with confusion, disorder, pitfalls, and strangeness but it also governs divine guidance and awakens his intuitive faculties.
Remember the words compassion, selfless service, courtesy, and empathy, as these qualities will become the saving factor of the marriage here.
This position states a distance in the relationship therefore it stops indulging in pleasures. Here the cause of distance is Ketu. Due to strong inclinations in occult science, mysticism, psychic ability, meditation, past-life issues, and the subconscious, there are chances that partners can isolate from relationships. As this position states that Prarabadha karma has a Ketu link, thus it will bring Ketu traits into everyday activities.
Ketu’s position in the chart shows that area, which you have mastered, and this takes one towards detachment, break up, and no fun and delight. Here one needs to keep in mind that the maturity age of Ketu is 45 years. Before that Ketu, follows Rahu’s trend.
The 6th house is unfavorable for marriage. And Ketu’s position here makes one realize secret fears and the need for renunciation and thus one aspires for higher goals.
So in my view, though it is not a great position for marriage if one maintains a balance between relationship and path to liberation. And works selflessly, with no interest in earthly gains, and understands the significance of service and the art of self-introspection. Then he can convert the isolation or state of vairagya, into solitude.
Career: Ketu in 6th House
The 6th house represents service, job, and even self-discipline, and servitude. Now Ketu is a planet that represents complete detachment, losses, mindlessness, wandering, and confusion in one’s life. As here in this position, he has mastered the skill of being an employee or subordinate. So this at times makes the person quit his job or constant changes in job. The reason is Ketu, here wants to serve, but not for worldly gains.
Ketu is the psychic planet, and the career options related to Ketu are Astrology, Tantra, Vastu Shastra, and Tarot reading, and other branches of occult science.
Ketu represents roots, so this also includes code language behind mobile phones, laptops, and even software applications. So that work which is in tough terminology demands a lot of contemplation, research, in-depth analysis, and reevaluation.
The 6th house represents ailments as well as healings. So if one involves work related to Ketu, then it can take you towards higher goals through this service. Else it shows the direction of lack of interest, feeling of disheartenment, losing path, or no attraction.
When Ketu transits in the 6th house of the horoscope for 18 months, one can feel the Ketu impact in the house of your service or prarabdha karma. But it will link the effects of the natal position of Ketu. Like if a person has Ketu in the 4th house, and in transit Ketu is in the 6th house. Then mother or home atmosphere can bring Ketu effects like subconscious mind awakened, isolated, and sense of detachment in job or service.
So in that certain period, Ketu’s implications will play the part, like research-oriented mindset, or low mind, as a headless planet can be uplifted or cynical for no reason. Aloofness at work or stress due to disease as the 6th house also signifies diseases in the body. But this unhappiness can be converted into solitude if one understands the secret code of Ketu. So if one gets connected with the higher self through meditations or Yoga and be grounded. Then the 6th house Ketu can take the person towards the journey of liberation.
The 6th house Ketu states that your daily job has Ketu characteristics. Now if weak or malefic PAC then it can give instability in the employment or no interest in serving others. But if one involves Ketu’s signification in his everyday work, then he will be using the positive aspect of Ketu.
Ketu is just like Jupiter, which signifies wisdom and Vedic knowledge. So if one takes the method of Ketu like, intention to help or heal and no expectation. Then this person can attain fulfillment in work.
