Conjunct

Definition of Conjunct

When two planets are in the same area of the zodiac in an astrology chart, they are said to be conjunct. This alignment is called a conjunction. It is usually a positive influence in a birth chart or a transit report unless one planet is trying to dominate the energy of another.

It’s a very strong aspect, and the energy of the individual planets must be taken into consideration, as well as the house placement and the sign in which the conjunction occurs, in order for the conjunction to be accurately interpreted.

If you have ever heard of conjoined twins, then you can better understand what a planetary conjunction is. This occurs in astrology when two or more planets form a point or conjunction together where there is less than 10 degrees separating them. Like conjoined twins, these planets now move in synergy with each other, almost as if they are united. Their energies and qualities kind of mirror each other.

If you hear the Sun and Mercury are experiencing a conjunction on a particular day or in your chart, then the Sun and Mercury are united in their energies, and those qualities are manifested in your chart, in your life, or in your daily forecast if this is where you see the report.

TERM OF THE DAY

Saturn

Saturn stays in each zodiac sign for two and a half years taking about 30 years to get through all 12 signs of the zodiac. It rules both Aquarius and Capricorn. When Saturn is in a sign, it makes us crave the energy or characteristics of that sign. They call it the taskmaster because it pushes us to do things. Discipline and responsibility are known to be linked to this planet as it was said to the be the god of time, pushing us to be aware of its passage. It has to do with masculine traits of authority, the teacher aspects and lessons learned over time. It rules the 10th and 11th houses.
