Vibration of Ideal Transformation
Ketu is a spiritual entity which relates to the South node of the moon. This force contains powerful metaphysical energies which are linked to the Soul’s spiritual path towards Moksha. Moksha relates to enlightenment and liberation, both in this lifetime, and the next, as it prepares us for transformation at the time of death. Ketu is a force in which one of the main karmas is to reorient and reorganize our lives to our highest spiritual frequency, to our highest mystical vibration, to an alignment with our dharma and to an alignment with our path towards liberation. Another one of Ketu’s main karmas is that it seeks to employ and express lessons through aligning our lives with our path towards Moksha or enlightenment, and it does that at all costs, often causing undesirable effects on a material realm manifestation.
Path Towards Enlightenment – Moksha
Often times our path towards enlightenment or Moksha is connected towards certain aspects of detachment, loss, and the concept of surrender. Ketu’s primary force is to encourage us to detach from aspects and areas of our lives that we are most attached to; those areas that we seek to control. Ketu works through a mechanism of erratic loss, taking away those attachments which are preventing us from liberation. Ketu encourages surrender of control by causing certain events or life situations to seem completely erratic, unexplainable, and out of control thus forcing surrender and ultimately helping us on our path towards Moksha.
Sometimes there are certain obstacles in our lives that prevent us from an ideal connection with the Divine, bringing us farther away from our path towards Moksha and liberation from the body. Ketu will place many spiritual obstacles in front of a Soul’s path in order to realign them with their highest spiritual frequency and proper path towards enlightenment. In the ancient text, Ketu is referred to as the presenter of obstacles because it presents profound spiritual obstacles. When we conquer and move through these obstacles, Ketu realigns us with our spiritual truth and our path towards Moksha or enlightenment. It is a divine reorganizer and reconnecter to our highest spiritual truth and path towards enlightenment.
Powerful Auspicious Energy
Now is a great time to transform yourself spiritually or work on your relationship to the Universe because Ketu is in Aquarius. Ketu entered the Saturn owned sign of Aquarius January 30th, 2016 and will remain in Aquarius until August 18, 2017. Aquarius and its relationship to Saturn bodes well for Ketu, as Ketu is counted amongst Saturn’s friends and has a powerful auspicious energy in its alignment with Aquarius.
Aquarius is an incredibly powerful sign relating to idealism, optimism, consciousness, and progressive. It is a sign which resembles the most progressive universal consciousness available at any given time and represents the transformation of our consciousness, the transformation towards progression, and our ability to intuitively align with the most ideal potential expression of something. To see the cup as half full and to strive towards that ideal with optimism is to have an Aquarius outlook. To summarize, Aquarius helps us to see the most ideal expression of everything in life. Our ideal consciousness or perception, an ideal way we go about our lives, an ideal way we interact with the world and other living beings, and an ideal expression of what possibilities exist in the world. This idealism lends towards optimistic attitude and power towards innovation, happiness, progressive thinking, and all life endeavors.
Ketu’s alignment with Aquarius is highly potent and is considered an auspicious shift that will encourage rapid and unpredictable spiritual transformation. Ketu, a force which is constantly aligning us to our highest spiritual frequency is traveling in Aquarius which focuses on progressive consciousness, innovation and alignment towards idealism and optimism. This shift will cause Ketu to embody and empower Aquarius type vibrations which means one of the primary transformations that is going on is from the place of the Consciousness. Through Aquarius, Ketu is working to align our individual consciousness with that of a universal consciousness in a very potent spiritual way. This vibration means that Ketu Aquarius is encouraging more unity and harmony in Consciousness, in certain groups in which certain frequencies are aligning. That means progressive consciousness ideals will be aligning and these groups and will be expanding in their expression.
This particular concept can be seen playing out in our political race for President in which a very powerful ideal republic consciousness is aligning around Donald trump. Also a very unique rebellious ideal democratic consciousness is aligning around Bernie Sanders. Even Hillary Clinton, representing the middle road, a more conservative democrat, is having an alignment of consciousness around her. This is a very significant energy in which individual consciousnesses are aligning towards the most ideal universal group consciousness. This is hinting at the powerful aligning transforming, reorienting energy of Ketu combining with the optimistic, ideal, and consciousness provoking energy of Aquarius.
Idealism & Optimism
Another of the extremely potent karmas that comes out of this combination is that there is a very powerful reorientation and reorganization towards idealism and optimism, especially as it applies to our spiritual path and our journey towards Moksha. This means that where we have strayed away from optimism and idealism, strayed away from viewing the glass as half full, strayed away from believing in the ideal in whichever way presents in our lives, that Ketu and Aquarius are working together to align us with that optimism and ideal. This will not only encourage us to see optimism and idealism in all areas of our life, but to transform and align with that optimism and ideal. We will be able to transform and align our lives with our new evolving progressive consciousness. We will be able to transform and align our lives with all ideals we believe in and work towards those ideals in a very optimistic way.
One of the things Ketu would be known to do as relates to this period would be to place certain key spiritual obstacles in our path in areas of our lives that are preventing us from our ideal expression, that our preventing us from alignment with our consciousness, the universal consciousness, and that are preventing us from being optimistic. In overcoming and working through these profound spiritual obstacles Ketu might will align us with our path towards Moksha as relates to our consciousness, and will align us towards believing in, and striving for the ideal. This is a time of ideal transformation, towards ideal expressions in individual lives, as well as transformation as to what is truly ideal for our path towards liberation, our path towards enlightenment, and our path towards Moksha, both in terms of preparation for transformation when the soul leaves the body, as well of glimpses of enlightenment, samadhi, or liberation we can still experience while empowered in our physical form. This divine Ketu Aquarius vibration is encouraging ideal transformation, both in the subject, objective, and collective sense. May we honor this ideal transformation, and continue to honor that divine Ketu Aquarius vibration which aligns us towards our ideal optimal expression in our path towards Moksha.
