Ketu Pooja

Ketu is a Nodal planet. It does not own any sign in the natural zodiac. However, it acts as an agent for the owner of the sign in which it is placed and also as an agent for the overlord of the star in which it is placed. Ketu when placed in a fiery sign would render a fierce nature and will exploit all subjects with an aggressive thirst of quest.
