Transit of Ketu

Ketu is an imaginary but powerful planet and when it moves through the houses, its effects can be felt far and wide. It is considered a malefic planet because it gives negative results in many houses including 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th.  However, in 3rd, 6th and 11th, it brings positive results too. Rahu gives obsession for material possessions relating to the house where it sits so its impact cannot be felt as much as Ketu because Ketu takes away what Rahu gives. However, we should realize that what Rahu gives is not permanent happiness. At the same time, when Ketu takes away material comforts, it rewards you with spiritual liberation, the ultimate happiness.  Both Rahu and Ketu spend almost 18 months in a sign, which is why their transit is an important astrological event.
