Remedies for Ketu

Ketu is also a shadow planet like Rahu. In Vedic Astrology, it is strongly linked with karmic accumulations. Its placement defines what deeds you performed in past life and Rahu, which is always placed seventh from Ketu tells what is your ultimate aim in this life. Ketu also associates itself with spirituality and supernatural occurrences. It can give wisdom, intuition, intellect, and spiritual inclination. But at the same time, it can also give difficulties, sorrow, losses, and mental instability. When positive, Ketu makes the native spiritually intellectual, virtuous and intuitive with sharp memory. Ketu gives knowledge earned in the previous birth.  It could be the reason why you think some people are gifted with business acumen. It also brings prosperity, sound health and unexpected gains.
