Ketu in The Tenth House : Vedic Astrology


The planet Ketu is a malefic planet. However, it is not as malefic as Rahu. Besides, both Rahu and Ketu are shadow planets, which do not have any real physical existence. They are like reference points in the sky or they can be called an astronomical position. However, there is one fundamental difference between Rahu and Ketu. While Rahu is the height of materialism and mundane, Ketu represents a stage in karmic evolution, wherein the native gets fed-up with karma and begins the return journey towards spirituality. And when Ketu is placed in the tenth house, the natives can get success in career and they are likely to attain power, status and wealth in life.
