Characteristics of Moon, Mars and Rahu Conjunction in Astrology

  • This is another combination for excessive anger, illusion, psychosis, and a business like mentality.
  • The mother can easily be the punisher in early life. Instead of spanking, the mother would beat the native.
  • In India, where physical abuse in the household is normal, the native could experience violence from the mother and male sibling.
  • This can happen if the Moon is having the lowest degrees in the chart.
  • If Moon possesses the highest degree, the mind would still be full of tension and anger, but it would be able to overcome it, unless of course the Moon is debilitated.
  • When these natives apply their mind to something, they will try to achieve it at any cost, even if it requires hurting someone else.
  • There is a great deal of mental tension that stems from running into people of a shady nature.
  • If such a conjunction occurs in the 7th, 8th or 12th House, it can show a person who might see things of other worlds, whether it's spirits, angels, or energies of other dimensions.
  • These may be mirages of the mind, as Rahu is an illusionist.
  • Such conjunctions occurring in the 2nd and 4th House can show a thief, or someone who steals from their mother and other family members.
  • To make such claims, the native’s nakshatra has to be studied as well.
  • Mars represents drive, and Rahu represents breaking boundaries and taboo.
  • The mind may be inclined towards illegal deeds or activities that are not accepted by society like joining gangs, pornography, or becoming an illegal arms dealer.

What is 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 Mars in Astrology?

  • Mars is a soldier who stands for his beliefs. Wherever it is placed in your horoscope, you stand for those beliefs, and that's where your energy goes.
  • Mars is energy. It's our will power and vitality. Mars represents our ability to take action towards something.
  • It also represents the anger we carry within us, as a soldier needs to have a certain level of anger within him to fight and win the battle.
  • In this day and age, Mars represents policemen, soldiers, athletes, warlords, arms dealers, and fighters, along with manufacturing, accidents, injuries, and dealing with explosives.
  • Mars also represents male friends and the Sun represents royalty, so these people can be in contact with friends  who are of a higher status in society, perhaps sons of politicians and celebrities.

What is Rahu in Astrology?

  • Rahu represents the goals that have been set by the universe for us to achieve whether we like or not.
  • Rahu is mainly known as the eclipse, and it eclipses the Moon and the Sun whenever it's in conjunction with them.
  • This means temporary darkness upon the native's life when the Sun and Rahu are in conjunction in a birth horoscope.
  • Rahu also brings fear and stressful situations into our lives.
  • This is due to Rahu's adventurous nature that loves surprises.
  • With Rahu, sudden events take place; events that may not be a real part of our lives but rather an illusion that becomes reality.
  • Rahu is taboo breaking and crosses all kinds of boundaries.
  • It wants to be unique and break tradition; to think outside the box.
  • He is also responsible for spiritual breakthroughs, because only after achieving material wealth does one seek God.
  • Rahu in Vedic Astrology is the Shadow planet with the form of a headless/serpent headed person. Hence, Rahu rules temptations and worldly things and will never be satisfied with small benefits but will opt for the lion's share.
  • Rahu is a warrior. Hence, the natives influenced by Rahu will have the quarrelling type of mentality.
  • The mode of transport for Rahu in mythology is Lion, and the lion is an animal that does not hunt when not hungry.
  • Likewise, the natives ruled by Rahu will relax and strike/hunt only when there is a necessity.
  • Rahu is also called dragon's head by Western Astrologers.

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?
