Lord Ganesha, the chief God for Knowledge and Wisdom, is the overlord of planet Ketu, which is known as the first planet and some say it is the most powerful planet among all the nine planets. Ketu governs wisdom or ‘Jnana.’
Wisdom comes with proper understanding of your experiences and not simply the accumulation of knowledge. Errors in the course of action could be wasted by dwelling on them, but wisdom is learning the lesson in the mistake. Ketu gives you this wisdom and helps you to work through your karmas intelligently.
By examining where Ketu is placed in your chart, you can gain helpful insight as to which areas of your life will undergo more difficulties that lead to wisdom in this lifetime. Lord Ganesha is the deity who can control Ketu. You can accelerate your obstacle removing-to-wisdom transformation by targeting this area controlled by Ketu and praying to Lord Ganesha for help. The below chart gives you the general indications where Ganesha can help you the most:

Once Ganesha wanted to know what to sacrifice
The Greatest Lord Shiva, Ganesha’s father, recommended that Ganesha should go and find the most powerful being as possible and sacrifice him. As Shiva is the ultimate, Ganesha asked if He could sacrifice Him! Shiva manifested a coconut out of thin air and instructed that the coconut would be used to represent Him. Shiva is the ultimate sacrifice so sacrificing a coconut is the ultimate sacrifice. Coconut Smashing is a spiritual technology to smash your obstacles.
