Past Life & Roots

With South Node Ketu in Aries, the major themes and pinnacles in the past life revolved around the foundational significances of the considered zodiac sign.

Namely, the 1st zodiac sign Aries is all about leadership, action, drive, motivation, new beginnings, initiation power, etc. Accordingly, this combination indicates that individuals with this combination were likely involved with leading, management, launching projects, making decisions, etc.

Very Intuitive

To begin with, South Node Ketu is a very intuitive, courageous, and fiery entity just like the Mars-ruled 1st zodiac sign Aries.

Mars is the planet that governs the 1st sign Aries of mentality and 8th sign Scorpio of intuitive wisdom which proves that the connection of South Node Ketu with Mars through Aries creates a very intuitive person.

Individuals with this combination rely more on their gut feelings than common logic and cognitive patterns.

However, whether this benefits them is highly reliant on the dignity of Mars, which becomes the host and guide to Ketu.

Accordingly, if a dignified Mars guides South Node Ketu well, it indicates that their intuition is exceptionally strong and thus gives very precise signals which can be relied on every single time.

In fact, their strong intuition gives even better signals that common logic or results of cognitive analysis.

On the contrary, if an undignified Mars misguides the energies of Ketu, it indicates that their intuition often gives incorrect signals. These are caused by weakened Mars which causes various fears, worries, and useless anxiety which interferes with intuition and scrambles it resulting in incorrect gut feelings.

Tremendously Fiery & Courageous

South Node Ketu is naturally a very impulsive and fiery entity because it relies on subconscious and intuition rather than common logic.

At the same time, Aries carries the element of fire which represents immense courage and will-power to prosper even when heavy obstacles are present on the path.

With that being said, Ketu resonates naturally well with the fire element of Aries and therefore indicates being extremely hot-tempered, impulsive, and courageous.

What amplifies this effect is the fact that Ketu is all about spirituality and faith. That is because faith complements courage greatly by extending self-confidence with the intuitive feeling that everything will turn out fine with the help of almighty God.

Furthermore, Ketu also signifies detachment which also extends the courage by giving the feeling that there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.

One of the most dangerous and courageous people are those who have nothing to lose. It is because they are always willing to go all in and put all their energy into their undertakings with unshakable faith in the divine.



The best outcomes out of their blind courage are extracted only if Mars, the guide of the South Node in Aries is dignified. If that is the case, then these individuals have further amplified courage and faith which reflects that their blind faith almost always gives good results.

That is because Mars is the main planet of courage and if it is strong or dignified it complements Ketu in Aries greatly.

Most importantly, Mars is the planet of righteousness and if it is dignified it ensures that their extreme amounts of courage are directed towards pious and good-natured acts.

Moreover, their amplified righteousness attracts divine protection and guidance which also enhances their faith to a very great extent. As a result, they become nearly unstoppable.

On the contrary, if Mars is undignified, it decreases the amount of courage. As a result, it creates a lot of inner tension as Ketu wants to strive forward while weakened Mars holds them back.

Weakened Mars also reduces faith which also reflects weakened Ketu as there is insufficient faith that prevents them to attain their goals righteously.

They are afraid that there is no divine power available to support them and because of this lack of faith and courage, they are prone to harness cunning, clever, and often unfair tactics in an attempt to meet their goals.



An undignified Mars as the planet of action also indicates that they are prone to commit many bad deeds out of the unsteady flow of thoughts.

Extremely Concentrated

South Node Ketu is known for being skilled in handling sharp objects. In fact, Ketu signifies all the sharp objects and not only that, but it also signifies sharpness of mind and concentration power.

At the same time, Aries is the 1st zodiac sign which is all about mentality, focus, determination, will-power, and action.

Accordingly, South Node Ketu indicates being extremely precise, determined, and having a highly concentrated mentality. Individuals with this combination have a special ability to focus for a prolonged time which increases their effectiveness in many activities.

Aries is of cardinal modality which signifies initiation power. Therefore, in this sign, Ketu amplifies this ability with the ability to focus until the goal for which action is initiated is attained.

It is important to note that positive results manifest only if the South Node in Aries is guided by a strong Mars, which is the planet of purpose, direction, and action.

A strong Mars is crucial in order to control Ketu because its sharpness is so intense that it tends to scatter everything it touches. In addition to that, a positive Ketu gives the ability to expand the activity on which a lot of focus is applied.

In other words, individuals with this set of combinations have the ability to focus on certain directions in life and fulfill tasks one by one which allows for healthy expansion. After setting solid goals for expansion, they focus on each branch at a time.



On the contrary, if Mars is weak or undignified, it indicates a scattered mentality that manifests in having an inability to focus on a specific direction.

Therefore, a misguided South Node in Aries gives severe mental confusion, restlessness, and tensions which makes it hard to concentrate and find purpose in life.

Impulsive Action-Taker

Mars-ruled Aries is all about initiation power, drive, and action while South Node Ketu is very impulsive and hot-tempered.

In fact, Aries is a fire sign which is also very impulsive. Therefore, individuals with this combination are very impulsive. In other words, they tend to act without careful planning and foresight.

With increased impulsiveness, they also have a tendency to make decisions suddenly without carefully considering all related aspects and details.

However, if a strong and dignified Mars guides Ketu well, it indicates that even though they do not plan their actions, but they deeply trust their gut feelings which guides their sudden actions and decisions.

Often, their impulsive actions or decisions give good outcomes and results as they are motivated by righteousness and good intentions, as the dignified Mars suggests.

Therefore, individuals with this set of combinations have a special ability to take good decisions extremely fast without excessive planning. The quickness of their actions is provided by the Aries sign, which is all about speed and forward motion.

With that, they save a lot of time, energy, and resources and can apply it to their actions instead.

They simply stop thinking about various problems which helps them to be more confident in everything they do. It also indicates that they are able to protect themselves from overthinking and over-analyzing as they use less cognitive thinking in the first place.



The best thing about it is that their decisions are usually very effective and efficient even without careful analysis. They simply trust the divine and let fate decide the outcomes for them.

While cognitive thinking and careful analysis are still important, getting involved in activities to get more clear path suits them much more. While they decide using their intuition, they let their brains to work in the background while being active.

On the contrary, if Mars is undignified, it indicates that their impulses are ignited by bad thoughts or intentions. That is because undignified Mars causes a lack of righteousness which reflects actions that are not in full harmony with ethics.

Without strong and precise gut feelings, they are also prone to make bad decisions out of negative impulses. The positive thing about this set of combinations is that weakened Mars slows the native down a bit and prevents them from taking action and making a lot of bad decisions.

However, on the other hand, they are prone to become very secretive and cause harm to others using sharp wit and secret tactics.

Additionally, if the planet of righteousness is undignified, it also indicates that their impulsiveness and rashness are displaced on innocent people and often by unfair means.
