Ketu is a non-materialistic and spiritual planet that lies in the shadows of the Moon. It predominantly rules the three nakshatras - Ashwini, Magha, and Moola. Ketu is commonly known as moksha karaka since the planet resides mainly in 8th and 12th houses. While the 12th house of giving up, 8th is the house of transformation. Hence, the name - Moksha Karaka. Ketu's presence in the wrong house in a birth-chart or horoscopes and alignment with the wrong planets causes Kethu Mahadasha. The Ketu Dasha usually lasts for seven years.

Despite the popular belief, if Ketu aligns with Sun or Jupiter and is in the correct house, the mahadasha will yield positive results to the person. People with Aries, Capricorn, Cancer, and Aquarius as their ascendant zodiacs will benefit the most of out of this Mahadasha.

The ill-effects become predominant if Ketu aligns with Venus, Mercury, or Moon and places itself in the wrong houses of the natal chart. As an example - if Ketu is present in the seventh house of the horoscope, it signifies intense dispute between the couple, sometimes leading to separation. Similarly, Ketu's presence in the 5th house indicates separation from children.

Whatever may be the effects, the Ketu Mahadasha develops spirituality in people and leads them on the way of attaining Sadgathi or moksha and enlightenment.

      It is good to offer yellow flowers to Ketu Graha in Navagraha temples and wearing silver ring can reduce the effects of Ketu.

      The 12th house of Ketu give better results for the person to enhance his skills and to bend spiritually. Most of the people may be devoted to God and surrendered to him mostly when Ketu dasha is going on in their natal chart.

      Every week on Saturday go to Shivalayam, firstly do pradakshina for Navagrahas and offer black black urad and black till. After that go to main mandap and get the blessings of Shiva to reduce the effect of Ketu Graha.
