Ketu according to Lal Kitab
Ketu is a great advisor, a messenger of peace and the lord of voyage. It is the planet which extends its support to the person till the end of his life but if it is unfavourable it beats the person in some way or the others and deprives him of everything. No matter how badly it may afflict a person but he never goes to the extreme of killing him.
House of Ketu
The house is generally related with children. The environment is not good. The people living there often face deception. The house is located in a corner. Either there are houses on three sides with one side vacant or there is a house on one side while the remaining three sides around the house are open. There shall not be more than three sons or grandsons. If there is one son, then he shall have three grandsons but if he has three sons then only one son and grandson shall survive. There will be a road leading to two sides from the front of the house. One of its adjoining house would be in ruins or an open field where dogs roam about
