Ketu-Meena provides the ease of No Resistance to dreams, imagination, conceptual thought, theory, first principles, research, interior guidance, hallucination, sanctuary activities, and the guidance of the ancestors. Yet matters of Meena can become incoherent * don't stick together * when Ketu the Releaser occupies the Antya rashi.

Ketu represents surrender, "Islam". Ketu signifies a cloud-like dispersion of social meaning and disconnection to material reality. Ketu-Meena pulverizes and nebulizes Meena-matters such as

  • of clairvoyant sensibility, dreams and visions, divination,

  • distant lands, sanctuary, hermitage, clandestine arrangements,

  • bedroom privacy, and meditation.

Thus if the nativity shows an otherwise strong development of the clairsentient energies (Guru, wisdom) one may perform at high levels of intuition and psychic skill in guiding to the bridge which connects the astral plane to the material plane.

Shri Ganesha ensures that one is no longer attached to the meditation experience, and this detachment liberates both the enemies and the supporters. One's ability to interpret he wisdom of the ancestors is both unlimited and unimportant.

Thus with Ketu-Meena it is relatively easy to achieve and hold the role of dream interpreter or travel guide.

Ironically, because of the absence of ego-attachment one is unlikely to believe that one's success in handling matters of pilgrimage or prayer is terribly important.

There is a sense of been there, done that which is quite apathetic and detached even when the relative absence of obstacles has eased the process of teaching about inner quietness and imagination r.

In Meena, Ketu's detached witness behaviors acquire Guru-like bridge-to-higher-planes characteristics. Similar to Ketu in Bhava-12, but less specific detail. Depends absolutely on how Lord Brihaspati functions in the overall nativity.

Ketu-Meena = been there, done that

parallel life pull

  • One is drawn by the inchoate patterns of other lifetimes

  • into the world of dreams and private imagination

  • where one may mingle with clairvoyants and sanctuary healers As one used to do in a previous life;

  • Yet, in the current life, the thrill of intuition is long gone.

  • it is a matter of broadly dispersing the vision, like particles of dust in a huge dust-cloud

When occupying Meena rashi, Ketu will blunt the sensitivities of Jupiter, making the native ambivalent about the business of private imagery and sanctuary spaces, traveling in the spirit world, and developing one's natural intuitive communion with all sentient beings.

Rahu-Meena lacks ego -attachment to the world of dreams. One hears the clarion call to lead others along an intuitive path toward reconnection and rebirth, but the method of expressing one's spiritual sensibilities is diffused.

May be intensely intuitive, aware of the presence of fairies, elves, devas, deities, and spirit beings of many classes.

Dispassionately observes the sorrows of the rootless wanderers. Aware, yet no instinct to intervene toward improvement the current conditions of migration of souls.

Accepts wandering, accepts a disconnected, dreamlike state; accepts the vast cosmic viewpoint - without intervention.

Emotionally distant sensitivity to the reality that all beings are connected in continuum of reincarnational creativity and that Divine love penetrates and enlivens all beings.

May be lonely and worried about one's own well-being; Naturally, withdrawn.

One avoids the approved modes of formal or actively engaged meditation. Ketu-Meena may be skittish around social designated sanctuaries such as ashrams and monasteries. Ironically though, in a state of extreme detached awareness of the interconnectedness of all life, Ketu-Meena folk are exemplary models of meditative neutrality.
