Jupiter Saturn Ketu Conjunction in Vedic Astrology

  • This conjunction produces a very dignified, wise, and spiritual person. Even though we know Jupiter is hemmed between two malefic, here Jupiter is with a malefic whose main goal is to follow the righteous path and ultimately the path of enlightenment.
  • The native would lean more towards spiritual and dark knowledge than of the mundane world.
  • As much as Saturn is involved in this conjunction, the native would be inclined towards esoteric studies rather than academic studies to deal with the reality of life because of Ketu. Ketu's ability to detach planets works quite well when in conjunction.
  • The native may be forced to study due to Saturn, but the true joy for the native comes when they follow the path of moksha, spirituality, isolation, and philosophical learning.
  • However, Ketu also gives the ability to do research, and with Jupiter and Saturn, the person can become a biomechanical researcher.
  • The native seeks knowledge that requires a lot of detailed information, and since Saturn is present, the native is quite disciplined and organized to accomplish their research.

What are Conjunctions in Astrology?

Conjunction simply means union of planets. In any birth chart, when two or more planets are sitting in the same house, they are considered in conjunction. There are all types of conjunctions: loose conjunctions, exact conjunctions, close conjunctions and virtual conjunctions.

What does a conjunction really do in an astrological birth chart? They give meaning to your life and set a purpose. They either take away things or give you things. There are positive and negative effects of conjunction. Positive effects are known as yogas and negative effects are known as doshas. 

Planets are simply energies, and when two different types of energy come together, they create a new type of energy or a mutant energy. The new type of energy brings a situation in your life that fulfills the destiny of that conjunction.

Note for 3 Planetary Conjunctions:

There is no one set of meanings for three or more planetary conjunctions, because each planet is being influenced by the other planet, and the planet with the lowest degree is having a major impact on the conjunction. 

If Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn are in conjunction, then there is no one liner that you can say to give its definition. You have to see what each planet is doing for the native. 

You also have to know the houses they rule. Is one ruling a bad house, or are both ruling bad houses? What effects are they bringing in the conjunction by being lords of good or bad houses?
