Exalted Ketu in Fourth House

Ketu is exalted in Scorpio as well as in Pisces. For the sake of this discussion, we’ll consider both these placements of Ketu. Exalted Ketu is benefic in the fourth house in some cases and it is malefic in some cases. The influences of other benefic and malefic planets on Ketu and the overall theme of horoscope are important criteria when it comes to decide the functional nature of Ketu in a horoscope.

As the number and strength of benefic or malefic planets influencing Ketu in a horoscope increases, Ketu may become more benefic or malefic. The concept of benefic planets turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets, and the concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets have been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.

Let’s look at some results which may be given by exalted Ketu in the fourth house when it is benefic. Benefic exalted Ketu in the fourth house of horoscope can bless the native with good results related to mother, education, properties, vehicles, profession, finances, wealth, fame, reputation, authority and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.

Looking at profession, exalted Ketu in the fourth house of horoscope can help the native achieve success as an astrologer, numerologist, tantric, hypnotist, magician, psychic, healer, spiritual guru, religious guru, philosopher, researcher, analyst, discoverer, scientist, mathematician, astronaut, astronomer, politician, diplomat, singer, actor, writer, painter, sculptor, musician, dancer, sportsman, architect, fashion designer, dress designer, video game designer, software developer, IT professional, web developer, reporter, journalist, blogger, columnist, anchor, television show host, orator, speaker, teacher, coach, consultant, advisor, doctor, therapist, revenue officer, administrative officer, police officer, army officer, fire-fighting officer, naval officer, professional dealing in movie industry, television industry, music industry, book industry, sports industry, media industry, finance industry, education industry, coaching industry, advertisement industry, marketing industry, event management industry, matrimonial industry, software industry, IT industry, health industry, pharmaceutical industry, travel industry, food industry, real estate industry, manufacturing industry or some other type of professional, depending on his overall horoscope.

Such benefic Ketu can bless the native with good results related to his mother. Taking an example, suppose benefic exalted Ketu is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Scorpio along with benefic Mercury. Benefic exalted Rahu is placed in the tenth house in Taurus. Moon is placed in the fifth house in Sagittarius, benefic exalted Mars is placed in the sixth house in Capricorn and benefic exalted Jupiter is placed in the twelfth house in Cancer. In this case, native’s mother may be a doctor who may work with government or she may have private practice. Though she may witness good amount of success, money and recognition through her profession, she may not have sufficient time for the native, primarily due to her professional responsibilities. Hence the native may have a normal relationship with his mother but they may not interact much.

If benefic Venus is placed in the fourth house in Scorpio with Mercury and Ketu, benefic Sun is placed in the fifth house in Sagittarius with Moon, and Saturn is placed in the eighth house in Pisces, the equation may become better. In this case, native’s mother may be a successful as well as rich doctor. She may have her own hospital and she may come across very good amount of money and recognition. The native may have good or very good relationship with his mother and she may support the native a lot, in various spheres of his life. However due to her professional engagements, she may not be able to devote much time to the native. Native’s father may also be a doctor and both his parents may together run their own hospital.

Benefic exalted Ketu in the fourth house of horoscope can also take the native to foreign lands and he may permanently settle abroad, if his overall horoscope is supportive for such results. This placement of Ketu is also supportive for blessing the native with success as an astrologer, tantric, healer, psychic, doctor, psychiatrist, consultant, scientist, researcher and other likewise professionals. Apart from these, benefic exalted Ketu in the fourth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.

On the other hand, malefic exalted Ketu in the fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to mother, health, marriage, education, properties, vehicles, profession, reputation, finances and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.

The two most difficult placements for malefic exalted Ketu in a horoscope are the first and the fourth house. Malefic exalted Ketu placed in any one of these houses may cause significant/great damage to the native. Such malefic Ketu in the fourth house can trouble the native with a wide variety of problems related to his mother. The native may lose his mother at a young age because of divorce between his parents, his mother may suffer from serious health issues, she may be mentally challenged, or the native may spend most of his childhood at a boarding school. In an extreme case when such malefic exalted Ketu is supported by an overall negative horoscope, the native may lose his mother to death, early in his life.

Taking an example, suppose malefic exalted Ketu is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Scorpio with malefic debilitated Moon. Exalted Rahu is placed in the tenth house in Taurus, debilitated Mars is placed in the twelfth house in Cancer, malefic Saturn is placed in the second house in Virgo, a benefic combination of Sun and Mercury is placed in the fifth house in Sagittarius and Venus is placed in the seventh house in Aquarius. In this case, the native may lose his mother before the age of 15 or even before the age of 10, depending on his overall horoscope and running times. Native’s mother may die due to a terminal illness or she may get killed in an accident.

Malefic exalted Ketu in the fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with some of the most serious types of mental health problems. Hence the native may suffer from anxiety, restlessness, depression, vertigo, insanity, split personality disorder (schizophrenia), bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), delusional disorder, dyslexia, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease or some other likewise disease, depending on his overall horoscope.

Taking an example, suppose malefic exalted Ketu is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in Pisces along with malefic exalted Venus. Rahu is placed in the tenth house in Virgo, Saturn is placed in the eighth house in Cancer, malefic Moon is placed in the third house in Aquarius and Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Taurus. In this case, the native may suffer from anxiety, restlessness, depression, hellucinations or bipolar disorder, depending on his overall horoscope and running times. Native’s mother may also suffer from issues related to mental health and the native may inherit such issues from her. He may have to spend much time, effort and money in order to treat/manage such issues and he may not get out of them throughout his life, unless there are grace saving factors in his horoscope.

If malefic Mars is placed in the third house in Aquarius with Moon, and a benefic combination of Sun and Mercury is placed in the second house in Capricorn, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may suffer from bipolar disorder or split personality disorder and he may not get out of it, throughout his life. Native’s mother may also suffer from serious mental health problems and she may die before native’s age of 20. The native may have a troubled and traumatic childhood which may have significant contribution in making the native suffer from such serious health issues.

Apart from these, malefic exalted Ketu in the fourth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
