EYE ON THE SKY: KETU IN SHRAVANA: SPIRITUAL AWAKENING AND MATERIAL CONFLICTS
In the true node system, Ketu went into the Shravana (Capricorn 10-23.20) on Dec. 2nd, 2017 and stays there until Sept. 24th. Modern astronomers say this constellation consists of 3 stars, Altair, Alshain and Tarazed and mythologically correspond to the three steps taken by Vishnu. Prash Trivedi notes that the translation of Shravana is “hearing” or ” the one who limps.” It is sometimes connected to the Pipal tree and the sacred tree where Buddha received enlightenment. This constellation is often connected to a trident or an ear and its symbol is to listen and if planets are strong in this constellation it means that one has to learn to be a good listener or to listen to one’s inner voice.
