In the horoscope of a businessman, the phase of Ketu’s Mahadasha is a very difficult phase. Whether it is Mahadasha, Antardasha, Pratyantar, or Sukshma Dasha. During the phase of Ketu’s Dasha, the work that happens, stays where it is. It doesn’t move forward even a bit. No matter how many efforts are made, the work remains stuck due to some odd problem. Before Ketu comes the phase of Budh (Mercury) and after it comes Shukra (Venus). Generally, for businessmen, these two planets are considered to give favorable results, but in between these two planets comes the phase of Ketu which halts the ongoing work. Especially, it gives more difficulty to new plans and new projects.
In astrology, Ketu is called headless. There is no intelligence in Ketu, only action is there. That is, during the phase of Ketu, the native works a lot, remains stuck in busyness from morning to evening, but his condition remains like a bull of oil press. Starts from zero and again sticks to zero. If it is Ketu’s Mahadasha, which lasts for seven years, then this race from zero to zero happens again and again, if it is Antardasha which is almost a year long, then the rounds can be smaller. Pratyantardasha lasts for a few months, during this period the ongoing work completely stops, without any solid reason and Sukshma Dasha lasts for a few days, then work remains stuck in lieu of unnecessary tasks like communication gap or completion of papers.
The bad thing is that Ketu keeps it stuck, but the good thing about it is that Ketu does not drop, the profile or status of the businessman. It remains more or less the same, if there is no progress then the downfall is also not much. Efforts increase and all efforts go in vain. Right after Ketu comes the phase of Shukra, whether in Mahadasha or in Sukshma, then the appropriate result of the efforts made in Ketu starts to be found in Shukra, provided that in the horoscope of the native, Shukra must be in a fruitful position.
For this Ketu, the generalized remedy is told to recite Sankatmochak Ganpati srota or to serve dogs. For other specific remedies, you should take the advice of a competent astrologer and get the remedies for Ketu, this helps in avoiding the stress during the phase of Ketu and serious damage can be avoided.
