Ketu in the 1st House – Good or Bad
1st house is the beginning of your life, your birth and starting point of your journey of life. This house explores the key answers of the questions like who you are, what will you do, what do you think etc. Your physical body, constitution, body complex, overall appearance, your soul, spirituality, health, age span etc all belong here. It tells about your childhood, your nature, behavior, fame, dignity, state of happiness/sorrow etc. It is house of your self-effort means whatever you will earn through your own. It tells about your knowledge, intelligence, and your ambition status.
Rahu is obsession about the features and events of the house where it sits because you did not experience plenty of those in your past life so crave for it now. Ketu is casual, ignorant, apathetic about the features and events of the house where it sits because you already had plenty of those things in the past and don’t want anymore.
Ketu is headless which means it cannot think and that is the whole point of being Ketu personality. Ketu is apathetic planet disconnected from society, social routine or normal course of action of life . These natives can be described as mentally disconnected, confused, day dreamers, not ready to take any responsibility until forced into action. They are indecisive or confused in matters of physical appearance, social personality, identity etc; cares little about making a good impression. These people prefer loneliness and can be described as separated, withdrawn, and dissolved. They are more into spiritual plane. They never realize or use their full potential ever being casual towards achievement. They will often roam around seeking the answers of life “who am I”. It is indeed a splendid placement for spiritual development.
