Why is Ketu attributed to Mathematics, why not Mercury?

Post by Vivek Surya » 30 Apr 2018

नमः शिवाय!
For Mathematics we need reasoning! We need to analyze things in deep to conclude, Mathematics is completely logical, when Mercury is attributed to Samskrutam, why not Mathematics? :? as Mercury is budha which represents buddhi (our Intellect).

I'm curious to know, is there any difference between logic & Intellect? 8)

Bhaiyya, I couldn't view the topic! there might be something missing while copying URL, if you've pasted it, we should view it in a blue color! So, I've added some vagaira like https://www.lightonvedicastrology.com/w ... phpBB_3.1/ in front, plus what you've given later, then I got it!

The link is as follows: viewtopic.php?p=101158&sid=fd72146a283e ... 2b#p101158

I've gone through it, some have opined on Ketu do give the Mathematical skills some have given it to Raahu, Some have told about Jupiter conjunct Mercury & Mercury in trine to Jupiter, Some have told Ketu in trines to Navaamsha & Kaarakaamsha & so on but there's no Astrological reason available for so & so!

Thank you so much for the link bhaiyya! :D

With Love in Mathematics! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Planet Budha’s is like metal nature of mercury. It is a liquid metal, means flow and lucidity is the nature of planet Budha. When metal mercury slips on ground it scatters in to small droplets or pellets. It Means-Budha Is Nothing But Multi Directional & Multiple Angles Of our Thought process. This same spill nature and scattering nature of mercury also denotes multiple data entries or gathering of data from multiple sources too. Just try to gather all spilled or scattered drops of mercury, they will unite and forms in to a single shape.so mercury is repetition and modification.so mercury’s role in mathematics clearly understood by you now. IN one sense-mercury gathers data, differentiate them several number of times [repetition] and try to match the similar and dissimilar,see those results in different angles. Hope you are clear now. Here the concentration of mercury scattering in all directions of a single problem that one has to solve it.

Coming to Ketu-His metals are various Alloys. . Which are hybrids of more than 2 metals.so ketu is a kind of hybrid intellectual and has such kind of intelligence in solving problems. It IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FROM Mercury’s. Ketu’s analyses in a step wise manner. Ketu is smoke.so his steps quickly vanish or disappears from his note pad and next step appears very immediately on it. Liberation is the key word for Ketu .what it means in terms of maths?. Think on it.

There are two kinds of reasoning deductive and inductive. Mercury belongs to Deductive And Ketu to inductive type. Deductive reasoning is the method of applying a theory (generalised hypothesis) on a specific event or thing and predict the outcome of the observation. Most in the world have strong deductive reasoning ability and not so strong inductive reasoning. That's why to be creative and find something new out of one's observation, one need to think out of the box, somewhat like headless Ketu. Ability to see patterns is also linked to the right lobe of the brain, while ability to apply theory to find solution is linked to left lobe of people. It is possible that natives under heavy Ketu's influence may do things in reverse manner, for instance using left hand more often- that's what Ketu does- reverse everything it influences.

Mercury is theory of maths and Ketu is application or applied skills. What mercury gathers [data] from different sources and angles processed by Ketu in a step wise manner. Thus ketu shows the final answer or liberation to the given problem. sixth sense is associated with ketu .He rules elephants. Elephants can communicate over few miles in low frequency vibration which is out of human audible range. scientists discovered that these frequencies are exactly in match with hydrogen’s frequency of the universe.[Frequency of hydrogen = 1420.4 MHz’s/ of wavelength of 21cm,which is a constant in our entire universe]. we the humans are sensitive to frequencies 2000-5000MHz..]. so Ketu’s speed is really super-fast in solving problems of maths kind.

Ketu according to weapons chapter of Maharisi Jaiminis astrology is said to rule time devices.. The Maharishi’s during the satya Yuga period or tretha yuga period (let’s say) did not maybe even cast a chart manually, all they did was observe the vibration of the planets and conclude the outcome. Not only that, Lord Ganesha is associated with all occult sciences, meditation and divine knowledge of Cosmos as he is represented by an elephant which has big head with more parietal cortex area of brain which deals with maths problems salvation power. Hence Ketu’s Ruling deity is Ganesha. And ketu gives the skills in astrology /occult sciences.

Last but not least-remember when ketu associated with mercury in 1-4-5 Places of the chart, gives the excellency in mathematics without any second doubt. Suppose if such houses are Gemini-Virgo-Scorpio, such brilliancy is in Multifolds.

Gathering of sources, scattering the information of what he has doesn't need critical thinking & not so much buddhi is involved, right? Then why is he associated with buddhi (Intellect)?

I remember once you've spoken about Tarka Yoga (Guru Mangala Yoga) Jupiter & Mars association. Does logic involved with Mars?

When we observe physical properties of planet Mars, that is temperature over here, its outer surface will be very very dry! & It's a red planet, we everyone are aware of it. So, Mars Graha is associated with reddish things like blood even our anger, when we're in anger we completely loose our buddhi, our ego overpowers! If Mars is associated with anger, why is Mars associated with logic!? Logic comes to us only when we're with cool mind / mentality, isn't so!?

@ vs- tarka yoga involves two planets but not with only mars./ @ krith-using left hand more often-you have to cross check it wit your D3 chart.you are trying to deviate from the main thread topic..

Fantastic explanation Joyd..really thought provoking..
I have some questions.Importance of Mercury has always been stressed for Charted accountants,mathematicians and scientists.Charted Accountants do not use higher mathematics.On the other hand there are pure mathematicians like Ramanujan and Nash.There are another group of people called applied mathematicians and physicists like Newton,Laplace,Fourier ,Cauchy,Euler and Lagrange.How astrologically we can differentiate them? How Mercury placement changes the above said professions?

TO the above combinations the following planets responsible. Theoretical/pure maths involves jupiter.Applied maths with ketu-mars.CA's maths with mercury[database kind]..Mercury purely depends on the available data.jupiter seeks and works for a regular update of such data.ketu creates the formulae and mars logically decodes them.

Does it hold good if Ketu is placed in Uttara Bhadrapada-2 where pada lord is Merury?

such native remembers the maths formulas till his death.Natives permanent memory is very good and outstanding if mer and saturn are both in any of the saturn signs like capricorn/aquarius.

Joyd,
Thanx for sharing your knowledge.
you said "ketu gives the skills in astrology /occult sciences."
Can we give credit to Ketu for skills in Astronomy too?

It has been said that to understand hidden meaning, Ketu is needed.Astrology is one such example where only basic is sprinkled here and there in classics.To compile all the information, as you exemplified Me is needed.But Ketu helps understand the true hidden stuff. Have I got that right?
I would appreciate if you could elaborate on Ketu's hidden stuff?
