Why Rahu Has Strong Affinity with Virgo and Ketu with Pisces But They Do Not Rule Them

Post by Khoo Hock Leong » 23 Nov 2018

Hi Learned Members

First let me discount the theory that the nodes do not rule any signs. They are given the status of planets so they must be in touch with the soul in a strong way, and the soul is represented by the signs where the Sun is karaka. To say they just take on the colouring of the signs they are in is to relegate them as non-planets. They are shadowy planets so they are like spies, but they do have a home base.

Rahu cannot rule Virgo because Virgo is dismicrinative and nit-picking in finding out the details but Rahu sees the details with one sweep of his glance. So Rahu is at home Virgo with all the details but Virgo is definitely not the sign that it rules.

Pisces dissolve boundaries but Ketu detach us from materiality but keeps a tight hold on his spiritual precepts. But in order for detachment to take place, boundaries must be loosen first. So Ketu is at home in Pisces but it does not rule Pisces. That is also one reason why Venus, the multi-faceted planet, is exalted in Pisces, when boundaries are loosened, then only you become colourful.

Rahu is airy, who likes visions. Gemini and Aquarius are signs ruling ideas and knowledge that grounds his vision So Rahu rules them and he has some work to do here for his visions using the knowledge and ideas for his tools and resources, which is unlike Taurus where he is exalted and has ready made resources for the fructification for his visions.

Rahu's colour is found by mixing the colour of Mercury, the other ruler of Gemini, which is green, and the colour of Saturn, the other ruler of Aquarius, which is blue, to form cyan, the colour of the clear blue sky.

Ketu rules Scorpio, the abode of spiritual precepts (not moksha, which is Pisces) and is Moolatrikona in Sagittarius, where the galactic centre is, where the Gods exist in full force (Sagittarius is the 6th sign, meaning expansion, of Cancer). The galactic centre is in Sagittarius.

The combination of Scorpio (water) and Sagittarius (fire) makes ice, which I explained in an earlier post, as hard as Ketu.

In terms of the main colour for Ketu, see the link below :

At the primary level, you combine Yellow (the colour of Jupiter ruling Sagittarius) with Red (the volour of Mars ruling Scorpio) to get Orange, the secondary colour.

Sagittarius colour is Purple and if you combine with Yellow, its planetary ruler Jupiter, you get Green as the secondary colour.

Combining Green with Yellow you get Citron (Yellowish Grey, which to me also looks like Smokish Green).

This is the colour of the Chrysoberyll Cat's Eye, the main gem and best cat's eye for Ketu.
