Ketu Yantra, just like Rahu Yantra is one of the most widely used Yantras among the Navagraha Yantras and the reason here again is the same fact that like Rahu, Ketu is also found working either negatively or it is found working in a mixed way in most of the horoscopes and it does not work completely positively in most of the horoscopes and for this reason most of the expert astrologers practicing in Vedic Jyotish recommend their clients to avoid wearing a Cat’s Eye which is also known as Lahsuniya in Vedic Jyotish, simply due the fact that gemstones should not be worn for the planets which are working negatively in a horoscope and gemstones should only be worn for the positive planets of a horoscope. The explanation for this recommendation of gemstones is based on the simple fact that wearing the gemstones simply strengthens the planets for which the gemstones have been worn, without doing anything to the nature of the planets and therefore wearing gemstones for negative planets will increase their strength and accordingly they will trouble and bother the native with more strength and hence their use is avoided in this case. Yantras along with Mantras and some other remedies, can prove very effective in such cases where a planet is working negatively in a horoscope as Yantras can reduce the negativity of a planet significantly and this is the reason for which many Vedic astrologer prescribe a Ketu Yantra to reduce the negativity of Ketu in a horoscope and also to rectify any defect formed by Ketu in a horoscope. Some astrologer also recommend the use of Ketu Yantra where Ketu is working positively in a horoscope in order to provide strength to Ketu and get more benefits from a stronger Ketu but this practice is far less effective in case of positive planets as wearing gemstones is the best available remedy to strengthen the positive planets in a horoscope.
Moving on, a Ketu Yantra can be used effectively in the cases where a negative Ketu is forming a defect in a horoscope and the strength of these defects can be reduced by using Ketu Yantra in combination with some other remedies. For example, if Ketu is afflicting a positive Moon in horoscope, a Matru Dosh is formed in the horoscope and accordingly the native will suffer from the bad effects of this Dosh. Wearing a Pearl and establishing a Ketu Yantra can be a very effective remedy in this case to reduce the strength of Matru Dosh because wearing a Pearl which is a gemstone for Moon will provide extra strength to the Moon and the stronger Moon will be in a better position to deal with the affliction from Ketu and at the same time establishing a Ketu Yantra will reduce the negativity of Ketu which will reduce the strength of the affliction from Ketu to Moon. Hence a combination of Pearl and Ketu Yantra can prove to be very effective in this case and this combination can reduce the strength of Matru Dosh significantly. Similarly, many astrologers use Ketu Yantra to reduce the strength of some other defects formed by Ketu like, Guru Chandal Dosh and Sarpa Dosha and though some Vedic astrologers believe that a Sarpa Dosha Nivaran Yantra also known as a Sarpa Dosha Nivaran Yantra is a better remedy to reduce the strength of Sarpa Dosha, but a Ketu Yantra can also be used to reduce the strength of Sarpa Dosha in some specific cases. Hence the use of Ketu Yantra in combination with some specific gemstones or some specific remedies can prove to be of great value when it comes to rectify some of the most prevalent defects of Vedic Jyotish.
Apart from reducing the negativity of Ketu and rectifying some defects made by Ketu, a Ketu Yantra can also bless the native with many good things depending upon the overall horoscope of the native. For example a Ketu Yantra can help the native get good results from his studies by increasing the concentration power of the native. A Ketu Yantra can also bless the native with very good spiritual advancement and such a native can also undergo some supernatural experiences. On the materialistic front, a Ketu Yantra can bless the native with powerful positions and in some specific cases it can also bless the native with a male child which is otherwise denied to the native due to some defects present in his horoscope. Apart from the things mentioned above, a Ketu Yantra can also bless the native with many other things depending upon the overall horoscope of the native but it is important to note here that only a properly prepared Ketu Yantra is capable of producing the above mentioned positive results and establishing any piece of metal in the name of a prepared Ketu Yantra is not likely to produce any positive results. A properly prepared Ketu Yantra is purified, energized, programmed and activated with the help of specific Vedic procedures and the whole process is carried out by the experts in the field. The process of preparing most of the Yantras is similar with some differences like the day of preparation, the Mantras used in the process and some other things but the overall nature of the process is similar for most of the Yantras. I have explained this process in my article named Sun Yantra and interested readers can read this article to know about this process.
Once you have got your energized and programmed Ketu Yantra, the next step is to establish it in your house, your wallet, your pocket or around your neck in a pendant depending upon the Ketu Yantra you have chosen. For best results you should establish the Ketu Yantra on a day prescribed by your astrologer and you should establish it in the place of worship in your house in case you have chosen for a bigger Ketu Yantra which needs to be kept in your house. For other kind of Ketu Yantras, you can keep them in your pocket, wallet or you can wear them around your neck on a day prescribed by your astrologer depending upon the kind of Ketu Yantra you have chosen. After taking your bath, Chant 11 or 21 Beej Mantras of the Ketu, sprinkle some holy water or unboiled milk on your Ketu Yantra, Pray to Ketu and ask for the best possible benefits or ask for your specific benefits and then establish the Ketu Yantra in your house, wallet or around your neck. Your Ketu Yantra has been established now and it will start working and in order to keep it working properly, you will need to attend to it on regular basis. Every day after taking your bath or preparing yourself for the day, go to the place where your Ketu Yantra has been placed, concentrate on it, chant 11 Beej Mantras for Ketu and then ask your specific wishes from this Yantra. In case you are carrying your Yantra in your pocket or you are wearing it around your neck, just take it in your hands after bath, concentrate on it, chant 11 beej mantras of Ketu and ask your wishes from this Yantra. Attending to your Ketu Yantra on regular basis establishes a strong connection between you and your Ketu Yantra which helps you get optimum benefits from your Ketu Yantra.
