Conjunction Of Planets

Hi, welcome to 2 min astrology course. Planets affect each other in various ways. Two such major ways are conjunction and aspects.

Conjunction is called “Yuti” in Sanskrit. “Yuti” comes from root “Yuj” that means – to add or to be together. If two planets are posited in same sign, it is called conjunction of those planets.

In this birth-chart (Kundli), Moon and Mars are posited in Cancer. Therefore, in astrological language we can say – there is conjunction of Moon and Mars in this birth-chart. As there is conjunction of Moon and Mars is the chart, these two plants will affect results of each other. Mars is a cruel planet by nature and it is considered to be debilitated in Cancer. Sixth house is also considered a negative house. Usually, planets in sixth house are not considered good. Therefore, we can say that Mars is negatively affecting Moon. If you remember from “significations of planets” episode, you may recall that Moon is significator of mother, mind, and eyes etc. Due to the negative influence of Mars on Moon i.e. mind, a person with this birth-chart is going to be a bit stubborn. Moon (mind) + Mars (stubbornness) = Obstinate attitude.

This chart also indicates that his mother will not be healthy. Why? Moon (mother) + Sixth House (Diseases) + Negative effects of Mars = Mother’s poor health.

Native may have weak eyesight. Why? Moon (eyes) + Sixth house (diseases) + negative Mars = problem with eyesight.

So, two important negative factors for conjunctions are - conjunction of malefic planet & conjunction of inimical planet. Similarly, if a planet conjoins with a benefic planet or friendly planet, it gets more strength to deliver its good results. 

Now, let’s learn ‘Aspecting Of Planets’

Aspect Of Planets

Aspect is called “Drishti” in Sanskrit. It means “to look at” or “to see”. Like conjunction, planets affect each other via aspect too. Interpretation of conjunction and aspect is more or less same. But the way we calculate aspect is different from the way we calculate conjunction. 

Every planet aspects or sees certain places from its place. Not only it aspects the places but also the planets situated there. All the planets aspect seventh from the place they are posited. Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter have additional aspects. Mars, apart from standard 7th, aspects fourth and eighth place. Similarly, Jupiter also has fifth and ninth aspects and Saturn has third and tenth aspect too. You can see aspect of each planet in the below given table.


Rahu and Ketu do not have any aspect.

Let me take our example chart to explain aspects. 

In our chart, Sun is situated in 7th house. We know that all planets aspect 7th from its place. When we start counting from Sun, this is first, this is second, this is third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seven. Always keep in mind that in North Indian Chart, we count anti-clockwise. So, this place which comes out to be ascendant or first house is the house aspected by Sun. There is no planet in first house and hence Sun doesn't aspect any planet there. 

Now let us take example of Jupiter. We know that apart from standard 7th, Jupiter also aspects 5th and 9th from its place. If we count 5 from the place of Jupiter, we reach to 3rd house where 1 is written. If we count 7, we reach to 5th house where Venus and Rahu are situated. If we count 9, we will reach to 7th house where Sun, Saturn and Mercury are situated. So, we will say that Jupiter aspects Venus, Rahu, Saturn, Sun and Mercury in this chart. 

Interpretation of aspects is similar to interpretation of conjunction. Always keep in mind that nature of planet is very important when it comes to interpreting aspects. Aspects of natural benefics like Jupiter, Venus etc. improves the matter and the aspects of natural malefics like Saturn and Mars harms matter. 

I hope you enjoyed watching this video. Hope to see you soon again.
