According to one belief in astrology, Ketu gets exalted in the sign of Scorpio and according to another belief in astrology, Ketu gets exalted in Sagittarius. For the sake of the present topic, we will consider the sign of exaltation of Ketu as Scorpio. Ketu is exalted in a horoscope when it is placed in the sign of Scorpio, which in simple words means that Ketu gains maximum strength when placed in Scorpio compared to its placement in all the other signs. Exalted Ketu is associated with many good things by many astrologers and it is believed by a number of astrologers that exalted Ketu always works positively in a horoscope and it brings good results for the native under its influence. This is not the case in actual practice and exalted Ketu can work positively as well as negatively in a horoscope depending on the other deciding factors and depending on the overall tone of the horoscope of a native under consideration.

The word exalted simply relates to the strength of Ketu in a horoscope and it doesn’t relate to the nature of Ketu in a horoscope. Accordingly exalted Ketu placed in different houses of a horoscope can give benefic as well as malefic results depending on the nature of Ketu as well as depending on the overall tone of the horoscope. We will now discuss some of these benefic as well as malefic effects which can be experienced when exalted Ketu is placed in different houses of a horoscope.

Exalted Ketu in 1st House : When benefic in nature, exalted Ketu placed in the first house of a horoscope can bless the native with good results related to profession, finance, fame, reputation, health and many other types of good results. Accordingly the natives under the effect of this benefic influence may come across some of these good results depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Such benefic exalted Ketu can especially prove good for the professional sphere of the native under its influence and it can bless the native with success through a wide variety of professional spheres. The presence of such benefic influence in the first house of a horoscope can bend the native towards the faiths like astrology, numerology, tantra, black magic and many other such faiths belonging to the category of supernatural or paranormal. Accordingly the natives blessed by such benefic influence may take interest in some of these faiths and they may read more and more material related to these faiths.

Some of these natives may engage in some of these special fields on professional basis if their overall horoscopes are supportive and they may achieve success through them. For example, if benefic exalted Ketu is placed in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Scorpio, Rahu is in the seventh house in the sign of Taurus and a benefic combination of Sun and Mercury is placed in the eleventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Virgo, the native may bend toward a faith like astrology. The native under the combined effect of these benefic planets may engage in the study and research of various topics related to astrology and he may spend many years of his life towards such study and research. At the same time, if benefic Mars is placed in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius and benefic Venus is also placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with benefic exalted Ketu, the equation may become much more positive.

The native blessed by all these benefic planets may engage in the field of astrology on professional basis after devoting many years to this field and he may earn good amount of success, money and recognition as an astrologer. The combined effect of these benefic planets can bend the native more towards a branch of astrology which deals with some tantric type of remedies in order to improve the overall luck of a native, instead of engaging in a branch of astrology like Vedic astrology which deals with remedies like donations, charities and Poojas in order to improve the overall luck factor of a native. It means that though such native may become an astrologer, he may bend more towards the tantric branch of astrology instead of bending towards the divine or spiritual line of astrology. Such native may prescribe remedies like burying certain specific things in deserted places instead of asking his clients to make regular donation to institutions like orphanages or Leprosy institutes.

However the combined effect of such benefic exalted Ketu in the first house and all other benefic planets in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope can bless the native with good financial incomes and recognition through this field of profession. At the same time, if benefic Saturn is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with benefic Jupiter, the equation may become much more productive. The native blessed by such benefic exalted Ketu and all other benefic planets may earn very good amount of money, fame and recognition through the field of astrology and he may also develop more taste towards a faith like tantra. It means that such native may directly engage in the field of tantra also, along with practicing as an astrologer and he may prescribe some tantric Poojas and other tantric remedies to his clients, in order for them to see better results related to some spheres of their lives. As more benefic influences add to this horoscope, the native under the effect of such benefic exalted Ketu and all other benefic planets may achieve even better results through this field of profession.

Some other natives under the effect of benefic exalted Ketu in the first house may directly engage in a line of profession like tantra and they may achieve success though it. For example, if benefic exalted Ketu is placed in the first house of a horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with benefic Saturn and benefic Mercury when Rahu is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Taurus, the native may become a tantric. Such native may become a worshipper of aggressive and violent forms of some gods and goddess and he may engage in special practices like Poojas and mantras for these gods and goddesses in order to get certain things done for himself as well as for his clients, by means of their blessings. The combined effect of such benefic exalted Ketu and all other benefic planets mentioned in this example may bless this native with good amount of success through this field of profession and he may also achieve good personal growth as a tantric.

At the same time, if benefic Sun is placed in the second house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius and a benefic combination of Mars and Jupiter is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Gemini, the equation may become much more productive. The native blessed by such benefic exalted Ketu and all other benefic planets mentioned in this example may earn very good amount of money and recognition as a tantric and he may also come across very good amount of fame through the field of tantra. As more benefic influences add to this horoscope, the native blessed by all such benefic influences may achieve even better results through the field of tantra. For example, the presence of benefic Moon in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius can bless the native with even better results through this field of profession. The native under the effect of such benefic exalted Ketu and all other benefic planets may write some books on various topics of tantra and he may earn very good amount of fame and money through such books.

On the other hand, malefic exalted Ketu placed in the first house of a horoscope can trouble the native under is influence with problems related to his marriage, profession, finances, health, lifeline and many other types of problems. Accordingly the natives under the effect of this malefic influence may suffer from some of these problems depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Such problems may intensify if malefic exalted Ketu placed in the first house of a horoscope forms Sarpa Dosha in that horoscope along with malefic exalted Rahu in the seventh house of that horoscope. The defect so formed is called Takshak Sarpa Dosha and it can trouble the native with serious problems related to his marriage, profession and health.

Some natives under the effect of this malefic influence may not get married on time and they may have to wait till late in their lives in order to get married. Some other natives under the malefic influence of such Sarpa Dosha may have to face many problems after their marriages and they may also have to face broken marriages after going through very bad experiences in such marriages. In an extreme case when supported by some other marriage breaking defect like Kuja Dosha, the presence of such Sarpa Dosha in a horoscope can make the native suffer from more than one broken marriage, after troubling him a lot through such marriages.

Malefic exalted Ketu in the first house of a horoscope can also cause problems in the sphere of profession of a native due to which some natives under its effect may have to suffer from many types of problems in their professions, depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Some of these natives may not be able to find jobs suitable according to their education or according to some other abilities that they may possess and these natives may have to work for low paying or low standard jobs. The natives under the effect of such malefic exalted Ketu may especially find it difficult to make the right type of decisions related to their professions at right times and they may have to suffer later on.

For example, a native under the effect of such malefic influence may reject a confirmed job opportunity just because he hopes to get a better job very soon. This native may not get any better job and by the time he realizes this, the job opportunity rejected by him may also not be available any longer. Apart from this, malefic exalted Ketu in the first house of a horoscope can also trouble the native with health problems and diseases which may be serious or very serious in some cases, depending on the overall horoscopes of the natives under consideration. In extreme cases when supported by some other malefic defect like Pitru Dosha, malefic exalted Ketu in the first house of a horoscope can afflict the native with a very serious or even with a life threatening disease.
