7 Best Remedies for Ketu

Namaste to All,

Ketu is a shadowy planet and is believed to be fiery as Mars, but it is generally considered malefic in nature. The placement of Ketu in any house can create a void in matters related to that house.

Being a planet related to our past karmas, it blocks our free will, especially during its Mahadasha and Antardasha. People suffer a lot during its operative times and if this planet is posited in a difficult house then it may bring about a myriad of sufferings for the natives.

Have you been suffering due to a malefic placement of Ketu? Or are you constantly struggling due to its Mahadasha or Antardasha?

If your answer is yes to both of the above question, then don’t worry and take a sigh of relief.

This article will talk about all the tested astrological remedies for Ketu planet and different measures to adopt in order to pacify this Pratikul planet.

So, let’s start with the remedies.


Chanting of Beej Mantras

Beej Mantras are powerful spiritual syllables which upon chanting can invoke the planetary energies. The frequency of these Mantras has the capacity to amplify the results of the benefice planets and nullify the effects of the malefic ones.

So, having a bad Ketu or undergoing its terrible Mahadasha? Simply, chant-

“Aum Straam Streem Straum Sah Ketave Namah”

You should chant the above Mantras 108 times daily after sunset. Just remember to make the correct pronunciation while reciting and put your complete faith in it.


Doing Ketu Shanti Puja

Vedic Pujas are wonderful spiritual tools mentioned in our spiritual texts to make our wishes come true or to get over the obstacles in our lives. Ketu Shanti Puja should be done by the natives who are under immense wrath due to the malefic aspects of Ketu planet.

Doing a Vedic Puja is difficult as it requires a lot of procedures to be followed, but there you can have an assistance of a Vedic Brahmin who can do the rituals on your behalf. 

In case, if you want to do the Puja on yourself, you can check our detailed article on Ketu Puja. All the important steps are outlined sequentially.


Wearing of Gemstones

Cat’s eye is the recommended gemstone for Ketu planet. This gemstone has the ability to diminish the bad effects and acts as a protective shield.

Although, it is the best Remedy for Ketu, but you should only wear a gemstone after getting consulted by a renowned Vedic Astrologer. Moreover, the gemstones should be of good quality and must be flawless.

Never, I repeat never try to wear any gemstone on your own as it may backfire and can create additional troubles in your lives.


Wearing of Rudraksha

Rudraksha has been glorified in our ancient texts such as Shiv Purana, Devi Bhagwat Purana and Padma Purana etc. These are powerful spiritual beads and have the ability to control the planetary effects.

It is the representation of Lord Shiva himself and has mystical powers. Wearing of a Nau (9) Mukhi Rudraksha is a wonderful Ketu remedy and has the potential to shield the wearer from the bad effects of the Ketu planet.

Just purchase a quality 9 Mukhi Rudraksha from a certified centre and wear it on Monday by simply chanting “Aum Namah Shivay” 108 times. It may look very simple, but a person ought to follow a vegan lifestyle and stay away from all vices to tap its benefits.


Making Charities and Giving Donation

Donation is considered to be one of the best remedies for Ketu and to get the blessings of deities and appeasing a malefic planet.

In order to get over the difficult period, you should donate sesame seeds; mixture of 7 grains; chapattis to dogs; milk to cats and dogs; and cat’s eye gemstone. Donation for Ketu Grah should be made on Saturday evening after sunset.

In my experience, feeding dogs with chapattis has shown excellent results.


Lifestyle Changes

Ketu, though a malefic, is a spiritual planet. It wants to teach you detachment from the materialistic plane and worldly desires and finally guide you to spirituality.

So, if you remain submissive to the planet’s energy and practise spirituality, It will spare you from his malefic clutches. However, this is best remedy and doesn’t need any investments, but it is difficult for the natives to embrace spirituality, especially at an earlier age.


Lal Kitaab Remedies for Ketu

For believers of Lal Kitaab Astrology, you should do the following remedies:

  • Donate blankets to the poor.
  • Wear gold on your body in any form such as ring, necklace, bracelet and etc.
  • Feeding stray dogs with chapattis
  • Respect you gurus and elders to amplify your Jupiter energies.
  • Keep a silver ball always with yourself.
  • Drinking milk with saffron can also nullify the bad Ketu energies.

So, these were some of the best remedies for Ketu. You can practise whatever suits your lifestyle and budget as every remedy mentioned works. Just try it yourself and let us know in the comment section.
