What if Ketu is in Libra? (Vedic Astrology)
There are several possibilities with this placement of > Ketu in Libra and here are some of them.
1) Libra is a sign of relationships and when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra then the native is not much interested in relationships and often divorces happen due to this placement as Ketu is a planet of rejection or give up and so the native gives up the relationship. Right now, when I am writing this article (on 23 Nov 2021) Ketu will soon start transiting the sign of Libra and so for the next 18 months a lot of divorces are going to happen throughout the world. But this will not be with everyone who has their Ketu placed in the sign of Libra. I don’t reveal the real secrets of, how divorces actually happen, in free articles and you need to join my paid tutorials in order to learn that.

2) Libra is also a sign of interaction. When Ketu is in Libra then Rahu is in Aries and suppose the lord of Aries, Mars, is placed in the sign of Libra then the native, with this placement, could also be a boxer as in boxing you fight with the opposite partner and when two persons fight with each other in the ring then that is also an interaction. And that is what Mars Ketu conjunction could do in the sign of Libra as Mars is a planet of aggression & fights and in boxing, you need to show a lot of aggression. Ketu is headless and so doesn’t think and do things blindly. People in the military or police often have this placement as there are a lot of fights and aggression involved in interaction with the enemies.
3) Libra is also a sign of equal rights (without any discrimination) and when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra then such natives may not believe in non-discrimination and they may favor a particular group of people (dogmatic - kattar). Such natives may not be good for politics and social welfare as then it will be hard for them to provide the justice. When Mars is in Libra then the native could also fight for justice. Mahatma Gandhi had this placement and he fought for the rights of the people and freedom of the country. Aries is quite a selfish sign. It is an individualistic sign.
4) In nuclear reactors, the fission of uranium atoms is carried out to generate energy which is then used to generate electricity. The process of fission (and fusion) involves interaction between the various universal particles like atoms and molecules. So, the energy released is the result of the interaction (fission or fusion) between the particles. The sign of Aries represents energy and motion, while the interaction process is represented by the sign of Libra.
Now, when Rahu is placed in the sign of Aries then the native wants to generate energy and for that he needs to work on the interaction process (fusion and fission) and Ketu in Libra does that as Ketu is a planet of going to the roots of something. Atoms and molecules are the roots of the particles. Controlled chain reactions carried out with the interaction of these particles produce energy which is then used for the generation of electricity and also motion. So, people like mechanical engineers, power engineers, and aerospace engineers are quite often seen from this placement of > Ketu in the sign of Libra. When atoms and nuclei collide or split then this is nothing but interaction represented by the sign of Libra.
5) Ketu is also the natural significator of the 8th house which represents our private parts and so Ketu is also associated with our private parts. Now, in order to generate sexual energy, the interaction of the male and female private parts is needed and that is what Ketu does in the sign of Libra. So, this placement of > Ketu in Libra and Rahu in Aries is good for mating and if in transit this placement is happening then that is a good time to produce kids. If Mars, lord of Aries, is debilitated then it could also result in multiple relationships as planets lose dignity when debilitated.
6) Ketu in Libra could also make you depressive when it comes to making relationships or when it comes to interacting with other people as Ketu is more or less a depressive planet as it is a natural malefic planet. But this is more so if Venus is debilitated in the chart (Venus in Virgo). If Moon is also placed in the sign of Virgo, it will make you even weaker with the mind when it comes to relationships. Rahu in Aries could also make you a workaholic and then you don’t find time to indulge in relationships. The native may feel himself/herself as ugly when Venus is in Virgo. If Rahu amplifies then Ketu diminishes and so Ketu diminishes your relationships when placed in the sign of Libra. Ketu is a planet of death and so relationships could die when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra which is a sign of relationships.
7) Libra is also a sign of marriage and when Ketu is transiting through the sign of Libra then this is really good for a marriage to happen as Ketu represents the religious activities of all kinds. Ketu is considered exalted in the sign of Sagittarius as Sagittarius is also a sign of religious activities and law (for court marriage). Pundits who carry out religious activities for marriage may also have this placement.
8) Ketu is also a planet of change (transformation) and so when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra it could bring a lot of change in relationships and so the native may not stay in a single relationship. But this is more so possible if Venus is conjuncting Ketu in the sign of Libra. As I mentioned earlier Ketu is the natural significator of the 8th house which is the house of change. But this is just one of the possibilities and so don’t take anything for granted.
9) Ketu is also a planet of ups and downs or turbulence as the 8th house is also the house of turbulence and Ketu is the significator of the 8th house. For example, when you play any kind of sport there is a lot of turbulence. For example, in tennis, there is a one-to-one interaction and Ketu brings a lot of turbulence (ups and downs) in the interaction when placed in the sign of Libra which is a sign of interaction.
10) Many people provide online customer support services via chat or email or even phone and they interact with different people at a different point in time which means their interaction with people keep changing as new customers (or people) comes in and this is what Ketu does in the sign of Libra as Libra is a sign of interaction. It makes the native change the customers for interaction which means interacting with different people one after another. This is because Ketu is a planet of change as mentioned before.
Aries is a sign of motion and so it is not a stable sign and the native keeps moving when Rahu is placed in the sign of Aries. I mean he moves to different customers one after another if he is in the customer support services. If there is movement (Aries) it will certainly bring change because then things are not stable. When Mercury is placed in the sign of Libra then only there is interaction via communication as Mercury is a planet of communication.
11) When the sign of Libra falls on the 8th house (for Pisces ascendant natives) it could also bring a lot of change in relationships as the 8th house is also the house of change just like Ketu. That is the reason Pisces ascendant natives often fall prey to multiple relationships.
12) Death is often predicted by the transit of Ketu. For example, if your Moon is placed in the sign of Libra and if Ketu starts transiting through the sign of Libra, then there could be a risk to the life of the mother as Moon represents the mother in Vedic astrology. But this is not always so but if Moon is afflicted in the chart (such as falling under MB or YD in KCC chart) then surely there is a risk to the life of the mother. MB, YD, KCC, are secret astrological tools that I don’t reveal in free articles. You need to join my advanced astrology tutorials in order to know about these tools. See the contact me link on the top menu for more details about the tutorials.
13) Libra is also a sign of agreements and agreements are also legal documents for buying or selling of something (such as property) and when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra the native may ignore such agreements as Ketu ignores. That is the reason people get into trouble with the law when Ketu is transiting through the sign of Libra. You mutually agree to something in an agreement and when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra you don’t care about such agreements and then get into legal troubles.
14) Libra is also a sign of compromise and when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra then the native hardly compromises and becomes more or less selfish. They don’t want to make any adjustments and become straightforward because Aries is an aggressive and straightforward sign and Rahu is placed in the sign of Aries. Even if there is a family problem related to wealth still people with Ketu in Libra never compromise. But the compromise maybe for right reasons or wrong reasons depending on the location of other planets in the birth chart.
15) If Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra but if Venus, lord of Libra, is placed in the sign of Gemini then this could result in sexual relationships with multiple partners as Gemini is a sign of mating and Ketu is a planet of change (changing partners). But this is just one of the possibilities and you should not take anything for granted. You should not start doubting other people because of this placement in their chart. Ketu is a planet of dislike and when you dislike something then you want to change it for another. For example, if you have a dislike for your spouse you might want to change her/him with another partner.
16) Rahu could even be a cheater as Rahu is an obsession and when you get obsessed with something you want to attain it at any cost (even by doing wrong things) and that can even make you cheat. In that sense, Ketu is spiritual as Ketu is just opposite in nature of Rahu. Now, when Ketu is placed in the sign of Libra the native could be very spiritual in relationships or marriage. But this is not always so as it will also depend a lot on the placement of other planets in the birth chart. If Venus is debilitated then you may not be loyal in a relationship.
17) Rahu in Aries makes you very aggressive and when you are aggressive you want things to happen quickly. For example, some people trade in stocks for quick money and they don’t invest for long term. Now when you trade for quick money (such as intraday trading) you need to keep changing your buying and selling with other people in the trading software and that is what Ketu does in the sign of Libra as Libra is also a sign of trading and Ketu is a planet of change.
Rahu in Aries people are always in a hurry because Aries is a sign of hurry or quickly as Aries is an energetic sign. When Rahu is transiting the sign of Aries it could bring a lot of volatility in the stock market which means the prices of stocks can suddenly move up or suddenly go down as Aries is a very quick sign and Rahu is an amplifier. The activities (buying and selling) in the stock market will pick up when Rahu starts transiting in the sign of Aries.
18) People with Rahu in Aries want to do things in their own way while people with Rahu in Libra, you will always find them consulting with other people before doing anything. This is because Libra is also a sign of consulting which is nothing but interacting with other people to find the right solution. In other words, when Ketu falls in the sign of Libra then such natives don’t want to consult other people and mostly want to do things in their own way.
