They became Rahu and Ketu causes amutra or amrita can make one eternal. Rahu and Ketu always stay opposite ways, so they so called the karmic axis.

Major and sub-periods of each other these shadow planets heavily effect change our life from a karmic point of view such as the Rahu main period and Ketu sub-period.

South Node of the Moon – Ketu
Ketu implies upper chakra in kundalini energy. Ketu belongs to Maha Brahma. In traditional astrology it is called grandmother, so Ketu has a feminine character.

Sometimes your partner has psychic abilities such as they can read their wife’s or husband’s mind. So even little mistakes they can find out. The moon increases such mental powers.

Why Rahu and Ketu spoil Marriage Life
Rahu is enemy with Sun and Ketu is friendly with Moon. So Ketu and Moon’s conjunction is better for the 7th house rather than Rahu and Sun’s conjunction. The karmic axis falls on the 1st house and the 7th house implies that there has been something in past lifetimes to resolve. Rahu is researching the planet, so people with Rahu in the 7thhouse tend to use modern-day sex toys and pornography in their sex life. A lot of time, they don’t satisfy conventional sexual intercourse. Another side Ketu is a more spiritual planet, so these people who have Ketu in the 7thhouse find the spiritual type of love. Sex is not important to them.
However, the planet that resides in the particular house may not help to give a good or bad marriage life. House lords are important, if house lords reside in blissful houses such as 5th or 9th, they can overcome malfunction in Rahu or Ketu conjunctions. It looks like people who reside in the house may not be house owners, sometimes they stay in rental period. So for a clear picture, you should consider house lords and the bhava-chalit chart too. For cure malfunction chart owners may worship Hanuman and Maha Brahma Gods. It is better to practice some precepts and participate in the pilgrimage. You can gather a group of people who have financial problems and support them to go on a pilgrimage to temples belonging to the Hanuman God.
