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.

Gibbous

When someone says the moon is gibbous, it means that more than 50% of the moon is illuminated in the sky. This happens when the moon is moving towards a full moon and after the full moon when we are approaching a new moon.
