Deadly Conjunctions: Mars & Ketu

गं गं गं गं गं गं गं गं गं गं गं


Mars is the planet of fire. He controls the Agni Tattva (Fire Element) and controls all kinds of fire (There are three basic types of fire in jyotish). Mars is malefic in nature and denotes aggression, fighting, courage, policemen, etc.
Mars rules Aries and Scorpio, and has very high energy, which he consumes at a very fast rate (as Aries is a movable sign). He is ruler of this planet (Bhu Loka) and signifies death. Mars is significator of Mrtyu (Death) as an end of suffering, and this Loka (Plane of existence) called Mrtyu Loka.


Ketu is a shadow planet, i.e. it does not have a body. Ketu rules Scorpio and Pieces. It is Ketu who debilitates the Moon, not Mars. (Mars is Bhumi Putra, son of earth mother, he loves his mothers and has 7 mothers) Ketu has no head, so he destroys the Moon (mind), very badly. Ketu is headless.

Ketu represents, a sage, hermit, widower, nullity, void, Nagas (Snakes with hood), extreme heating (like in a microwave) that destroys everything, army personal, upward direction, moksha, etc.

Ketu is extreme of Mars. Mars energy multiplied by 100 is Ketu. Ketu has no head, he is headless and can make a person completely go nuts, if it affects the Lagna, Moon or Paka Lagna.

Ketu is Maha Shunya (The Big Zero), what ever he touches he destroys it (makes it zero). Now we see that Ketu should not be conjoined any planet or else that planet is gone from your life. The only planet that can control Ketu is Jupiter. The mighty Jupiter, turns Ketu into a great scholar and forms a Guru Parampara Yoga.
Ketu is very benefic for spiritual path, but we all in sansara (material world) for which Ketu is very destructive and malefic. It can destroy anything.

Pishacha (पिशाच)

Pishachas are flesh-eating demons in Hindu theology. Theology describes them as the sons of either Krodha or as Dakṣa’s daughter Piśāca. They have been described to bulging veins and protruding, red eyes. They are believed to have their own languages, known as Paiśāci.

Pishacha is demonic energy of anger and destruction. This energy is fueled by extreme anger and violent thoughts. Very powerful after sunset, as light fades away. Non vegetarian food and alcohol aggravates this. Even a single person with is energy and whole family is disturbed. Its a very high energy and very difficult to control. It may be dormant for many years, but when manifested it can wreak havoc.

Pishacha Yoga: Mars + Ketu

When Mars and Ketu conjoins a yoga for extreme energy is formed. The person will always be warm to touch, and will feel hot all the time. Mars and Ketu makes the fire in the body go out of proportion, and severe problems arise from it.

  1. It causes extremely angry and violent behavior. Many people with this yoga are convicted for violent crimes. Too much heat, destroys the water element, which is responsible for emotional balance.
  2. If it this yoga directly affects the Moon or Moon is also involved with Mars and Ketu, then insanity or whimsical behavior may occur. As Ketu will destroy the Moon
  3. If Jupiter is weak, then this yoga turns into a paranormal activity magnet. This energy is so strong that it attracts a lot of negative entities. Persons may have partial or complete possession, erratic and self destructive behavior. For complete possession, Jupiter should be afflicted badly and Bhadhakesh should also be involved.
    Generally what is observed, after sun sets native may behave in a very odd manner and cause a lot of problems, for themselves and others. Many natives say they just lose control they don’t know why. Their sleep are at times are marked my bad dreams and sleep paralysis.
  4. This yoga in Kendra (quadrants) is more more malefic than in any other house, as it will also create a sapra dosha.

This is malefic yoga, it may not be severe as possession always but natives with these tend to lose control very often and do make a lot of problems for themselves and their family.

At lot of spouses of natives with this yoga have constant complain of abusive behavior and violence at home

Case I

Pishasha Yoga in 10 House

Here the Native has Pishacha Yoga in 10 House, in Kendra. The 4 and 10 axis is damaged. Moon is debilitated in Lagna as Bhadhak, very bad, a lot of obstacles in life. Both Lagna Lords are forming Siddhi yoga, in 10th house of work. A very capable person with an explosive personality. Jupiter is 12th house (not good) and aspected by Rahu and debilitated Saturn. No Natural Protection.

4th house is aspected by Mars and its significator Moon is also aspected by Mars and in debility, made him leave is home country.
Turns to be very abusive at home, wife approached for remedies as she can not take more. Native turns to break a lot stuff at home during night. Pishacha energy is very high. Home peace is destroyed, and too much suffering for wife and kids.

Since Mars is also the 6th House Lords, suffered from severe black magic and everything was ruined, had to move to different country for a fresh start.
Spouse complains that Native is different person after sunset, and was scared of him, as she thinks he can do anything.

Case II

Pishacha Yoga in 4th house

Here again the yoga is formed in 4th house, very disturbed home and emotions. Both Venus and Moon are severely damaged, there by giving emotional problems. In future will face a lot issues with relationship as Pishacha Yoga with Venus gives her a high sexual energy, which is also supported by the Sapra Dosha, but affliction to Venus will not give stable relationships unless Venus and Moon Curse is removed. The Native had so much fighting energy, that ultimately I advised her Mother to get her into boxing or martial arts. Now the native wants to become a professional boxer.

Case III

Pishacha Yoga in Lagna

Here we see this the yoga is in Lagna, with exalted Ketu and in a powerful Sign of Sagittarius. Even Jupiter is afflicted Rahu in Bhadhak, Jupiter has managed to protect the child a lot. Jupiter is lagna lord and aspecting it so as long Jupiter stays strong he will reduce the negative effects.

We see that the native is born in Amavasya (New Moon) as both Sun and Moon conjoin the only hope is Jupiter, to have normal life.
Since Rahu in Bhadhak and Mercury and Venus caught up in Amavasya (New Moon), black magic, paranormal or ghost attack is bound to happen in Dasa of Mercury, Venus or Moon. He will face all these problems when the dasa comes, as it permanent. Only Mahadeva is his protection and he has been advised to strictly adhere to a vegetarian diet and worship of Lord Shiva everyday.

  1. This makes sense to me now! I was going through a hard time with my mother in law
    This conjunction is in the 10th house of my d9 chart…


  2. What happens when this conjunction of Mars and Ketu happens in the 3rd house for Virgo ascendent in the sign of Scorpio.

    I was wondering about the degree distance between the Mars and Ketu. Would it still form Pishacha yogas when the Mars holds lower degree than Ketu?


  3. Is this conjuction also bad in 8th house for a scorpio lagna girl,Since Mars is lagnesh. Is it possible for her that there will be domestic violence etc??


  4. Sir

    My son is Makara Lagna and Makara Rasi. Now 16 years old. He has Rahu in 4th house, Saturn in 7th and Guru in 9th house, Mars and Ketu in 10th house. Surya, Sukra and Mercury in 11th house.

    Any effect due to Mars + Ketu in 10th house? Mars 208.94° degrees, Ketu 185.29°degrees

    Any remedies?


    1. Make his Saturn Very Strong. Worship Varuna Deva on Saturday. Make sure he gets up early. Send him to Study abroad or outstation if possible. Give your son this mantra to chant: Om MahaGanapataya Namah. 4 rounds of 108 on a rosary of red sandalwood.
      Make sure he eats some sweets every day, secondly wear a navy blue belt in the belly region is very good.
      He is blessed with a Raj Yoga in a foreign land, away from home town. Get his Sade Sati pooja done separately.
