 Mula is a very powerful nakshatra even on the material plane. It can give worldly status, prosperity as its motivation is desire/ materials. Mula is the 19th nakshatra and '19' is a very lucky number for all types of material achievement.

 Mula's nature to quickly cut out and destroy things that have lost their value. It is a very impulsive nakshatra. Mula is still quite a proud and haughty nakshatra. Mula natives, however, are unable to understand their own power and abilities

Mula natives are like for creating something new you have to destroy the existing one. It sounds horrible but destruction is the first phase for creating something new.

As Ketu in ruling this nakshatra, Ketu says isolation and separation so the planet like Venus and Jupiter Will either feel isolated or separated from the relationship after one destruction new start is better for them or Karmic relationship is also seen.
