The effects of Ketu are somewhat similar to that of Mars. According to Vedic astrology Ketu is the representation of karmic collections both good and bad, spirituality and supernatural influences. Ketu is the lord of three nakshatras :Ashwini, Magha and Mula. Ketu stays for 18 months or 1.6 year in each Zodiac. The metal representing Ketu is Iron and Gemstone is Cat's Eye.

Some Remedies of Ketu

Donate a cat's eye gemstone, a brown cow with white spots, colored blankets or black mustard seeds on Thursday or a dog to a poor young man on Thursday.
Reciting of Shiva Panchakshari Stotra.
Worshipping Lord Ganesh.
Keeping a fast on the first Thursday of the waxing moon.
Chanting the Ketu Mantras 18000 times on 108 japa beads and performing puja with mixed flowers and sandal wood within the ascending cycle of the Moon. The recitation should begin on a Tuesday during the bright half of the Moon. The presence of 'Mahamrityunjaya yantra' at the place of recitation may help you in achieving the desired results faster.

Mantras of Ketu

"Palasha Puspa Sangasham

Tarakagraha Mastakam

Rowdram Rowdratmakam Ghoram

Tam Ketum Pranamamyaham"


I offer my obeisance to the violent and fearsome Ketu who is endowed with the potency of Lord Shiva and having a complexion resembling the flower of a palasa plant, he serves as the head of the stars and planets.
