Conjunctions

Moon and Saturn Conjunction in Astrology

The Saturn and Moon conjunction can depress the mind or put a burden of responsibility and a feeling of heaviness on our emotional state. The mind is limitless; it wants to continuously expand; it wants to unconditionally and uncontrollably create values of optimism about the future. 

Moon in Astrology represents your mother, or motherly figures, your emotional response to your environment, and your imagination, since the Moon is your mind. The Moon shows the way you think and react to situations. How emotional or unemotional you are depends upon the condition of the Moon. The Moon is also a watery planet, as it controls the sign of Cancer. 
Saturn in Astrology is our limitation in life. It sets boundaries to what we can and cannot achieve. It's the wake up call, as Saturn shows you the truth and reality of life. We are forced to be more practical and disciplined about our goals rather than searching for them on an esoteric level.

Characteristics of Moon and Saturn Conjunction:

  • When the lord of boundaries (Saturn) is in conjunction with the Moon, it can create limitations in the mind or limit things that the mind wants to do, and when we do not get what we want, we get down and depressed.
  • Obviously this is not a great conjunction to be in as it can bring dark and gloomy thoughts into a person because of the realistic nature of Saturn.
  • Saturn wants to show “what is,” while the Moon wants to think about “what else can be.”
  • Our limitless mind finally gets a roof above its head that we can't escape.
  • But Saturn doesn't punish; it only brings about the fruits of our karma.
  • If our karma is neutral or mixed, it removes its hands from the limitless mind after midlife where the Moon again feels optimistic.
  • Now, the Moon can overcome this conjunction from the beginning if the Moon is more powerful than Saturn.
  • This can happen when the Moon is in its own sign or exalted in the chart while controlling the non- dusthana house in the horoscope.
  • What truly happens with the Saturn and Moon conjunction is that these people tend to see the harder things in life rather than the blooming flowers.
  • This is a far better scenario than seeing happiness, because when hard times come, this person will be well prepared by mid-life.
  • A Moon and Jupiter conjunction would make a person so optimistic and happy all the time, that when problems arise, they may struggle psychologically.
  • Fear and anxiety are common with this conjunction.

What is the Moon in Astrology?

  • The Moon in Astrology represents our mind and mother. The condition of the Moon in the chart will show how enlightened we are in experiencing the Divine Mother within us, how clearly we can feel that our ability to nurture and empathize with others is unbounded and unlimited, and how brightly our mind can shine in sensitivity and comprehension.
  • A person with a very well-placed Moon will feel the world is bright under any circumstance, will be able to experience the world as a place that is nourishing and supporting, and therefore be the same to the world him/herself.
  • When the Moon in the Astrology Chart is challenged, the mind will have shadows and dark corners, and fear that there is a shortage of support to carry us through; it blocks our eyes from seeing the Divine Mother shine for us and through us.
  • Moon in Vedic Astrology represents the mind. It signifies the thoughts and emotions, and the complex psychological faculty that takes input from the senses and tells the body how to respond.
  • The Moon is the single most important planet in Astrology (Jyotish) because the state of mind is responsible for all the emotional responses to life, and therefore defines the subjective perception of life.
  • Conditions affecting the Moon (Chandra) in the chart influence the thinking and feeling processes, mental skills and attitudes, and also responses to the world at large.

What is Saturn in Astrology?

  • Saturn in Astrology represents grief, symbolic of how we relate to time.
  • When time seems to pass too slowly, we experience grief.
  • The condition of Saturn in the chart shows how permanent, eternal, and synchronized our connection with the light of consciousness is, being with us at even the most challenging times.
  • A well placed Saturn shows the person knows when to go slow and when to go fast, to always let this light be there for them.
  • By acknowledging the limits of where light can go in our relative existence, we can still maintain the experience of beings of light.
  • A challenging Saturn will allow the person to stray off-limits, where no light can reach and suffering prevails.
  • Without Saturn being bright, the person may wonder if things will ever be okay again.
  • Saturn in Vedic Astrology represents your uncle, the type of boss you’ll have, your good and bad deeds in this life or the past, how hard will you work, your true career and wealth, your level of maturity, and aspects of your life that might be restricted for at least 50% of the time.
  • Even though Saturn in Vedic Astrology limits your ability of certain aspects of your life depending upon the sign and house its ruling, it usually frees you up from its aftermath after the age of 35 per Vedic astrology.
  • Saturn is limitation, restriction, discipline, structure, order, law, obstacles, delay, focus, and separation.
  • Saturn is the General of the Army.

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.
