Ketu in 7th House: Ketu is the South Node of the Moon. The main symbols associated with Ketu are – a Flag fitted to a pole, a mace, an arrow, and the Swastika. Ketu can cause people to act in a depraved, unreasonable manner as the goals of Ketu are complex and probably hidden.
Ketu is in fact a force connected with confusion, disorder, surprises, and strangeness. Ketu gives separation and removes the things that Rahu has given you to guide you. And declares that you are complete without the name, stardom, authority, and assets actually Rahu contributes.
Significance of Ketu in 7th house in Astrology
The 7th house in Astrology signifies partnerships. Now this partnership can include your lifetime partner or spouse, business partnerships, contracts, and agreements.
To understand the position of Ketu in the 7th 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 knowledge which one has learned in his last birth. So when Ketu is in the 7th house, it gives supernatural skills to understand the relationship.
But the only problem is that the planet will give acceptance as per its own trait. It can make one sense (feel) the bigger picture, abstract ideas related to relationships that are difficult to grasp.
Ketu’s work is to persuade detachment (vairagya) and to remove all that is unreasonable for the soul’s evolution. All our attachments, our vasanas, our desires, our cherished memories, our goals, our self-created identities of the body and mind, are aspects that we stick to and which make us forget our true nature as a manifestation of Pure Spirit. So Ketu’s space is to disconnect us from these elements which attach us to the realm of Maya.
Venus and Ketu
Venus is the karaka of the 7th house. And it has the lordship of the 2nd house and 7th house as per the natural zodiac. Venus represents relationships, love affairs, luxury, beauty, and artistic things.
But Ketu is an inherent, supernatural drive and it can connect us with the supreme consciousness. Now since 7th house is the Kaam bhava, and is also called Maraka. Maraka here means distraction in the journey towards higher goals. Ketu here in the 7th house is uncomfortable with the Karka Venus.
So when house karaka is disturbed, it has to sacrifice its own traits. In Astrology Venus is your spouse, so if the spouse maintains distance when it comes to intimacy and romance, then the relationship has to suffer. Here if Venus is also working at a higher level, like very mature discriminative skills, then it does not create problems.
The reason is that if the person learns that platonic love is superior to lust. Then he will not fall prey to attachments, Vasanas, desires, cherished memories, goals, self-created identities of the body and mind. These are all aspects that we stick to and which make us forget our true nature as an expression of Pure Spirit.
Marriage: Ketu in 7th House
The 7th house represents legal bonds, partnership, and marriage. Ketu has the spirit of detachment or “Vairagya” Therefore a separative and serious force in the house of the partner. And this contracting force, when associated with the 7th house, gives some sort of bitterness in its way to deal with duties linked to the 7th house. So definitely it will add its own uniqueness to the relationship. Here your spouse will have a Ketu influence.
Now in the 7th house, there is a sense of charm with the opposite sex, compatibility, balance, feeling for one another, loyalty, and understanding for each other. Ketu with more like Mars qualities is not really pleased in Venus and the relationship house.
What happens when a psychic and spiritually inclined planet takes the position. Ketu is a separatist planet, its position shows that occupation has been mastered in previous birth. So very mature in its approach in the relationship.
Because Ketu has higher goals, it is a Moksha Karak planet, working in Kaam bhav. So here love, romance, and intimacy will take a back seat. If your spouse has all Ketu qualities, like spirituality, intuition, and maturity, then Ketu will not create trouble in marriage.
The problem arises when Ketu is childlike in the house of relationship. In my view, when Ketu is working at lower principles, it has more Rahu qualities like immature, suspicious attitude, and weird behavior.
Career: Ketu in 7th House
Ketu in the 7th house states career that involves investigation work, traditional substance, and even in-depth analysis. But here the sign and sign lord will give further details. So a saint is asked to run a business or work in partnership. Ketu works to support or mend and has no expectations. Then this person can attain satisfaction in work or business. If here the person becomes money-minded, then it will create problems and instability.
Ketu in 7th house generally gives fluctuation in Career. There are chances that one will switch to other careers, as he will not be able to focus on one occupation for a long time.
Here only that Career can give best results which involve research and in-depth analysis. Or based on traditional origin. It can also give the best results, if one takes subjects like Astrology, Ayurveda, Tantra, and Tarot Cards.
Transit Ketu in 7th House
When Ketu transits in the 7th house of the horoscope for 18 months, one can feel Ketu’s role in relationships or business. Ketu signifies separation. So this gives detachment to the relationship. Those 18 months, you understand the meaning of association, its karmic bondage, and how to survive with the skills, he had mastered in the relationship in the last birth.
But it can also give a depressed mind, for no reason. The reason is Ketu is a headless planet, and it is gloomy for no intent. The 7th house is your relationship and if a planet like Ketu, works, then either he will create distance, or develop a Ketu attitude. And that is “no expectations in the relationship” Now it depends on the evolution level of the person. Actually, Ketu shows a new perspective on relationships, he will perform duties but the attachment will start reducing with this transit.
Ketu is a separatist planet, and position in the 7th house gives you detachment from all sorts of relationships. Hence takes you towards reality and Liberation, you tend to have an association with religious or spiritual institutions.
And I have perceived that Ketu initially takes you towards Rahu things which is more materially based, but in later life after 45 years of age when Ketu gets mature and active to give its real results. It gives such an experience that takes you towards higher goals, leaving the material world back.
The experience is actually a blessing in disguise. After all, every planet’s goal is to take you towards detachment with the fake and showy things and take the inner journey of higher knowledge, meditations, and eternal peace.
