Ketu

Vedic Nakshatra ( Zodiac ).

  Ketu is a marker in Indian ( Vedic ) Astrology. Metaphorically it reflects a special relationship between people born under Ketu and other individuals.
This metaphore reflects the Ketu-individuals' nature.

Three celestial bodies which are involved:
1. the Sun,
2. the Moon and
3. the Earth.

The meanings attributed to these bodies are well known in mysticism:
The Sun is the allegory for the primal, unencumbered understanding. The Sun is the clear light received by the individual's spirit. This is an inner enlightenment. It is an unencumbered perception ( like clairvoyance ).

The Moon represents the learnt understanding. It differs from the pure light of the Sun. The Moon reflects brain–knowing, in contrast with spiritual–understanding.
The Earth represents the individual's self.

EXPLANATION OF THE MEANING OF KETU:
( See image bellow )
When the Earth is interposed between the Sun and the Moon, the self is affected by the past. The previous learning is shadowed ( unused ). The benevolent rays of the Sun are obstructed by the Earth and ( the self ) shadows the Moon; the past learning is over shadowed, obstructing the direct light of the Sun.This effect is indirect, while in the case of Rahu it is observed imediately because the self is affected.
Individuals under such zodiac ( nakshatra ) are affected by the past. Ketu-individuals act unpredictably and it is said they are on the boundary of light and darkness. These individuals have a shady nature as they have a shiny nature. They can have negative intents or honourable ones; (sometimes in the same instant). A relationship with a person born under the aspect of Ketu has an unpredictable edge to it for the unaware.
