Meena Lagna

LAGNA PISCES

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and according to Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra, Pisces "denotes resolution." The native with Pisces lagna is in a completion phase this lifetime; this is not a completion phase in respect to their soul's journey, but in respect to who they are, and what their lives consist of. There is therefore a lack of forward focus or direction of what to do in life, as what comes into the life is coming largely for the purpose of completing the karmas with the thing in question. This gives less opportunity to "take the ball and run with it." This is what is symbolized by the Piscine symbol of "two fishes swimming in opposite directions," they never know what to hold onto or what to let go of. Pisces is mutable, flexible, accepting and capable of surrender.
The evolutionary goal is to develop the opposing qualities of Virgo. The Pisces native must learn the importance of work and improvement for the benefit of the next cycle of growth. Though the current cycle is coming to a close, the works done in this lifetime will influence the next or afterlife. Therefore the native must learn to do their best with that which comes into life as their duty. Not that it will change what is going to happen now, or extend the karmas with those things they are completing, but because it will allow them to develop skills, karmas, and qualities that will be of use in another time. Partnerships tend to be with those that are more concerned with their works and activities, or with those that motivate the native to be more dutiful and concerned.

Present time RAHU AND KETU

KETU IN THE 4TH HOUSE, RAHU IN THE 10TH HOUSE: Ketu in the 4th indicates that the native in recent past lives has created security by stabilizing, or controlling their emotions and reactions to the events in life. As the result, the native appears strong internally. The native will generally have more success in creating security by going inward than to tackle things externally. There is a tendency to over-control the feelings and reactions, which may cause eruptions or moods to be triggered when the native can no longer take it. It is because the emotions are controlled, rather than enjoyed with detachment that these moods occur. The native needs to learn to allow the emotions to flow freely, to let the feelings to feel what they may, without any fear of the pain that may be involved with this. The more the emotions and one's reactions are controlled by the native's thoughts about how they should feel, the more out of control and chaotic the external environment will be.
Rahu's placement in the 10th indicates this chaotic outer environment and instability. Through Rahu in the 10th the native learns to bring about a balance in their outer activities that reflects a balanced inner life. A controlled inner life, the security indicated by Ketu in the 4th, is not a balanced inner life, and the imbalances will be revealed by external factors being unstable through Rahu in the 10th.
Ketu in the 4th also indicates strong feelings about the things that are important to the native. Rahu in the 10th gives an ambition to make things happen with those things that the native feels so strongly about, and an outlet for doing so as well.

KETU IN GEMINI, RAHU IN SAGITTARIUS: Ketu in Gemini indicates a native who in recent past lives has created security through the use of their intellect. Through experimentation, study, and thought the native has managed to create a paradigm that allows for life to take place in a safe and secure manner. In this lifetime, Ketu causes the native to experience doubts about what exactly they know. When confronted by information that is contrary to what they believe they know, there is initial resistance, as new information is threatening to their security paradigm. After some time to think, however, they experience doubts about their knowledge, or understanding, that creates an identity crisis over what they know. They eventual result of this is a deepening of their knowledge, but also the understanding that they have learned so much that all they know for sure is that they do not know anything.
Rahu in Sagittarius indicates that the native must define a belief system or philosophy that takes care of those areas that they are unable to understand, or create rationality for. The doubting of their information, through Ketu, forces them to develop faith, and intuition through Rahu. The doubting of their information indicated by Ketu in Gemini also forces them to accept the information given by others, or teachers, indicated by Rahu in Sagittarius. However, as long as they doubt their own information, there will be a corresponding doubt of others' information as well. The key is do develop the faith and understanding that allows them to believe that, though, they will never know everything, they will know what they need to fulfill their role at a given moment.
Ketu in Gemini generally suffers from indecisiveness. This is a result of Ketu waiting for that last bit of information to close the case, but the last bit never comes, there is always room for doubt, in fact it is the nature of the intellectual mind to doubt. In the end they must learn to act on faith, the need for which is indicated by Rahu in Sagittarius.

KETU/MOON: The influence of Ketu on the Moon (with rasi aspect) indicates a deeper, probing, mentality that generally suffers discontentment in the world. When Ketu influences the Moon, the mentality is not so superficial as to be able to simply enjoy the pleasures of the world. The mind is always looking deeper, beneath the surface, and thus there is always a nagging discontent and questioning. This creates an introverted mindset, which in a spiritual nativity is conducive to spiritual practices. In other nativities, this may cause introversions and frustrations that may have violent or explosive eruptions. Generally it is found that natives with Ketu influencing the Moon have an interest in psychology.
Another noticeable trait of Ketu's influence to the Moon is to make the native very emotionally controlled and rigid. When they are in a negative mood, there is not a lot anyone can do to cheer them up, they pretty much have to suffer through the mood, after which they will get up feeling just fine. In fact the depths of their moods rarely correlate to what brought the mood upon them. There will usually be associated sub-conscious and past life feelings stirred up by that which triggers the mood. After the mood, the native will appear as balanced and controlled as usual, but one of the reasons the moods are so severe is that the natives do not flow with, and reveal, their feelings, until a buildup has occurred, and then the deep mood. These natives also have an ability to cheer anyone out of a mood; this is due to their ability to not let any feelings come through except those that they want to reveal.
In recent past lives, those with Ketu influencing the Moon have established a level of security and safety in the world by controlling their reactions to the many painful things in life. Controlling is one thing, feeling is another, so there is usually some pent-up pain in the native that is released when a mood is triggered. The developmental goal is to purge the mind from subconscious pain, remorse, regret, etc. and to develop a spiritualized mentality that truly remains at peace amidst the varying conditions and reactions of life, rather than a mentality that controls the feelings and reactions.

KETU/SATURN: The influence of Ketu on Saturn (with rasi aspect) indicates a nativity that has experienced security as a result of being an authority in some manner or field. In this life, Ketu's goal is to free the native from the need of being an authority figure in order to feel secure. Ketu does this through confrontations with those that cause the native to doubt their capacity as an authority figure. These doubts result in the native having the only choice of learning to be happy and secure without being an authority figure.

RAHU/MOON: The influence of Rahu on the Moon (with rasi aspect) results in some weakness in the mind that is in need of strengthening. This is generally the result of the mind not being centered in the heart, instead being centered externally or remaining unfocused. When the mind is centered externally there is discontent and depression that comes from the lack of fulfillment the world has to offer. When the mind remains unfocused there is a higher degree of psychic disorders, and/or a lack of clarity and concentration. Rahu influencing the Moon may give heightened psychic sensitivity but usually this is also accompanied by a weakness that make the native more sensitive to psychic disorders.
Other weakness of the mind caused by Rahu may be various types of mental derangement, but for any serious difficulties other malefic influences must also be indicated. In the horoscopes of natives with strong spiritual tendencies, Rahu influencing the Moon may give strong attunement.
The discontent that Rahu casts upon the Moon is also a cause of addictions. Addictions also serve to make the mind unfocused, which results again in psychic disorders. Rahu may also give a tendency to live in the imagination, in the realm of fantasy, wishes and hopes, which ultimately lead to discontent and depression because in the end the native still lives in the real world.
In female natives the conjunction of the Moon with Rahu creates a strong feminine magnetism, and a strong emotional transparency that is attractive to men. However, the woman herself feels ungrounded and insecure and is usually not emotionally healthy enough to enjoy a relationship.
The need for the native, when Rahu is influencing the Moon is to learn to keep the mind anchored in the heart, the one place of true satisfaction for it. With natives having spiritual tendencies this is an eventual possibility.

RAHU/SATURN: The influence of Rahu on Saturn (with rasi aspect) indicates a native that has difficulty in developing and maintaining security and stability. Those things the native feels attached to, or hopes to acquire security through are often taken away. Outer instability generally results in nerve-wracking conditions, and there is generally some inner instability and tension that makes the experiences of life less enjoyable. The only thing the native can really do to combat this is develop a dispassionate and detached mentality, which is particularly hard for them.
Rahu influencing Saturn also generally indicates a lack of consistent, long-term focus in life. The native will usually have a happier life once they are focused and secure in their path.
Rahu and Saturn are both separating influences, the house that they are both influencing will usually be an area where the native experiences complete or lengthy separations.
