Deadly Conjunctions: Saturn Ketu

Saturn is planet that indicates suffering, disease, addictions, old age, ancestors and life guided by material desires. Saturn is very materialistic planet, because it get exhaled in Libra, the sign of market, where everything is sold for money. The positive side Saturn denotes our ancestors, lineage, tradition as Saturn is something that is aging, old or ancient.

Ketu is node of Moon, as shadow planet (Chhaya Graha), it does not have a body, and is the Southern Node of Moon (Descending Node). Ketu as a personified planet does not have head it is just the body as the head is Rahu, therefore Ketu symbolizes someone who follows heart, does not use his head, very intuitive but not diplomatic has it has no head. Due to this reason Ketu is very spiritual planet and is also refereed as Moksha-Karaka (Giver of Salvation). All the saints and Sanyasis (renunciate). Ketu makes one give away material life and follow the path of spiritual enlightenment and salvation. Ketu is also the ruler of spirits and paranormal beings.

Both the Planets i.e. Saturn and Ketu are natural malefic (Paapa & Krura both) and their conjunction and yoga is of a deadly nature. As we can see that the characteristics of both the planets is opposite, one is most materialistic (Saturn) and other is most spiritual (Ketu). Their conjunction will mark a beginning of conflict in person. The native with this yoga will face a huge problem in choosing the life path. If Saturn is more powerful than a false Sage is born, he will show to be spiritual but will be very materialistic inside. This yoga is dangerous, they can show the world to be very spiritual but can be very materialistic and sinful in action.

If Ketu is more powerful in the above conjunction than person will lose interest in material life and choose to follow spiritual one. But this will come after a lot of internal conflict as both Saturn and Ketu will try to drag the native into its own direction.

This conjunction is worst in quadrants (1, 4, 7 and 10th houses) as it will influence the native very strongly and negatively. As three malefics will be quadrants (Kendra Bhava) which will also give rise to Sapra Dosh (Wrath of Serpent). In trines i.e. 5th and 9th House they will dominate the native either in middle age or in old age depending on placement, but will seriously hamper the fortune.

The Curse of Departing Soul (Pitra/Preeta Bhadha)

According to Maharishi Parashar (refer to Brihat Parashar Hora Sastra) the conjunction of Saturn and Ketu is curse of pitrs i.e. a curse of ancestor. It shows that any one of the family ancestor’s soul is still in preeta yoni (wandering as wind or ghost and unable to move ahead in cycle of rebirth or to any loka or tala based on karmic debts. Refer Sapta Loka Scheme). This soul wants it Sradhha (Final Rights) in order to move on.

In my general practice as an astrologer i have seen cases with this yoga, persons have someone close in family tree died an unnatural death and final rights weren’t performed properly. It is a deadly combo and really makes the life of native hard. Protection against this conjunction is only provided by strong benefices in Kendras (Quadrants) esp. Jupiter. A strong Jupiter in Kendra can minimize its bad effects or stop the yoga from functioning at all. Persons which this conjunction and weak Jupiter will mostly experience undue hardships in life and chances of witnessing paranormal activities is also high. It can also interaction to dead people in dreams or premonition which 5th or 9th Houses are involved.

Sraddha
Rights Performed After Death (Sraddha Ceremony)

Remedies

Firstly the remedy for this yoga should be done under proper guidance of a Jyotishi (Astrologer) or priest. As Ugra Devata (Deity in Fierce Form) worshiped is performed. Generally Ganesha or Bhairava in fierce froms are worshiped with vedic mantras and an homa (fire sacrifice) is formed.

The basic remedy that can be done by everyone for relief if the problem is not very strong are:

  1. Make Jupiter strong:- Worship Lord Shiva
  2. Perform Final Rights (Shraddha) ceremony for all your ancestors.

  2. Your Sister had a beautiful marriage due to the fact that Jupiter & Venus are in the 12th house of mariage. Although Jupiter is debilitated, Venus is 12th house is beautiful Neesta Graha for marriage. She has Saturn & Ketu conjunction in the 5th house, showing someone from her mother’s side, did not get proper final rights, and their Sraddha needs to be done. This yoga is not good for her children, as will seriously affect her parenting. Most probably she might have one child only.
    Her troubles started in 2017, and this due to transit of Saturn, into Sagittarius, which is 10th from her native moon, triggering all kinds of problem. She is running a Kantaka Shani, and she need to perform rudra pooja regularly till January 2020.
    She needs to take care of her bones, and do shiva pooja also as she has Guru Chandala in Navamsa.
    She needs to fast on Tuesdays during day, and after sunset she can eat a complete vegetarian food, if she wants to cure her marriage problem, which might be there due to transit of Shani.

    🙏 Om Namah Shivaya 🙏

    1. Prashant Ji, Your Capricorn Lagna, and Capricorn Rasi (Makar). Your running your sade sati first, so you will face problems. Now Saturn has entered to Capricorn, you will have full native effects, as it your Lagna and Jamna Rasi too.
      Secondly you have Debilitated Jupiter in lagna, who is need very much to help Venus your 10th Lord, in own house. In your chart normal vimsottri dasa does not apply, as special dasa called dwi-saptiti -sama dasa applies, and your running Sun Dasa Jupiter Antar Dasha, since last September, so job went away.
      Remedies to do:
      1. Do a Rudra Abhishek of Lord Shiva.
      2. Chant the Mantra: Om Brim Brihaspataye Namah.
      3. Read Hanuman Chalisa and Shiva shahastranam
      4. Chant Mrytunjaya Mantra every evening.

    1. Hello Kirti, your Kumbha Lagna, Mithuna Rasi, you have only one planet in kandra, that is Venus. That means life seems to be empty. Both your Lagna lords are affected, Shani with ketu and Mars with Rahu. Mars is kuja sthambana as 10th lord, so you will face problems in get a job, as mars is being destroyed in 8th house. Since Mars is also 3rd lord you have also lost your confidence, from 2018, when your Rahu Antardasa started.
      You are running a very bad dasa from 2018, Jupiter Dasa Rahu antardasa. So your losing all your confidence as Rahu, mars, ketu and shani all aspect your Moon. You have a strong mind but all these aspects on moon make the mind occupy a lot of things.
      You have a good dhana yoga, and you can earn through your knowledge.
      Marriage is not going to happen during Rahu antardasa. so you have to wait for more six months.
      Do some remedies, for advance remedies you have to come personal. Here are some remedies to help you.
      1. Read Hanuman Chalisa everyday.
      2. Read Bhagwat Gita every evening.
      3. Do the Mantra Om Gurave Namah 108 times everyday.
      4. Fast on Fridays for marriage. This Upapada Fasting. After sunset eat full meal. Fasting is only during daytime, where you can only drink milk or any liquid diet.

  10. You are Capricorn Lagna and your Lagna lord Saturn is afflicted by Ketu and Mars. So your health is down. Now Saturn has entered Capricon you should be more careful about it. You should do Shani remedies, first.
    Your marriage will have issues as your venus is with Rahu, which is not good. You also have mars in 8th house so mangalik dosa is there too.
    Venus is your 10th lord, as soon you make your venus strong as it is afflicted by Rahu and Saturn your job will be good.
    One remedy you can do is to perform a Rudra-Abhishek and chant Guru Mantra. For more specific remedies, you need to have a personal reading.

    My life had turned 360 in March of 2021. I am being harassed by the director of the company I am working in and my family has sort of gone against me for dating an Emirati man who I wish to marry.

    My birth date is 13th of December 1996, 12:26 PM, Calicut, Kerala. I currently live in Dubai and have been living in the UAE since I was 2 I believe.

    I have never been so lost in life before. I was even suicidal at one point last month and was very embarrassed about it but it felt like I had no other option at the time. I only recently read about the terrible effects of Saturn and Ketu being in my 2nd house and Rahu in my 8th.

    I have not had a stable mind since the end of 2018 and I am struggling mentally and emotionally. I feel like I am slowly losing myself. I just want to be happy. I have never yearned to be happy as much as I want to at this very moment in my life. I just want to know if there’s any worth in living.

    My family and I are going for our first family therapy session two weeks from now, hoping things get resolved.
