          Here above we discussed the natural friends of planets, natural enemy relationship between planets and natural equality / neutral relationship between planets from astrology consideration. But as per the zodiac cycle in birth chart, the position of planets in different houses brings another three types of relationships namely immediate friendship with other planets, immediate enmity with other planets or immediate neutral relationship / equality with other planets. We will discuss these aspects in another topic on immediate relationship between planets as per the kundali / birth char.

Here it is mentioned that ketu is natural friend of Planet sun. It varies based on different practices. Ketu can be instant enemy to sun because of other situation too.

In the above chart - i see that ketu is friend with sun. But i feel there are changes and variations in the opinion here.

I have been studying and researching astrology since 15 years; went through tons of books and online material. This is probably the most accurate planet-relationships chart I have ever seen. Many people have a misconception that ketu is enemy of sun, but it is not actually (as mentioned correctly above). Many other things are shown accurately here. Thanks for the wonderful info. Just wondering from where did you get this info? From some ancient holy book or it is based on your research etc.?
