Characteristics of Moon, Mercury and Rahu Conjunction in Astrology

  • If Rahu has a great impact in degrees to the Moon and Mercury, then his shadow will hide behind the veil of an emotional and intellectual moon.
  • Emotions are too overwhelming for the person to handle, so they create this wall of smoke and hide themselves from the world.
  • Meanwhile, a huge tidal wave is brewing within.
  • Rahu not only amplifies intelligence, calculative skills, and the ability to communicate, but also gives a person a foul mouth since the karaka of speech, Mercury, gets completely absorbed by the rule breaker rebel, Rahu.
  • Their mother could be a scientist, doctor, or simply a brilliant sales person.
  • However, the relationship with the mother is only on a superficial level due to verbal abuse.
  • There is constant bickering with the mother and sword fights of the tongue.
  • These individuals are top salesmen, marketing and accounting geniuses, or financial gurus who know the shortcut to early retirement.
  • If Rahu is too close to the moon, there will be constant depression and substance abuse like smoking, alcohol, and drug use.
  • In the 8th House, this can show that the mother was a substance abuser whose intelligence caved into Rahu's desire for pleasure.
  • Such a placement can also give intense interest and intelligence towards occultism and black magic.
  • Mercury's intelligence is loaded with curiosity to explore the unknown world in the 8th and 12th House.
  • Believing in conspiracy theories is not unusual for these natives.
  • Anything out of the ordinary stimulates their mind.

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 is Mercury in Astrology?

  • Mercury in Astrology is known as the prince. Since he is a royal, he takes his duty as the messenger seriously. This is why Mercury is also intelligent, because in order for anyone to have good communication, one needs to be intelligent.
  • Mercury is also our business and management skills due to his calculative and logical nature, and love for the marketplace.
  • One thing you must remember about Mercury is that because it is a neutral natural, it can become benefic and malefic at the same time.
  • If Mercury is in conjunction with a natural benefic, then it acts like a benefic planet. If Mercury is with a natural malefic planet, then it acts like a malefic.
  • If Mercury is with both natural malefic and benefic as in Venus, Mercury, and Saturn, then look at the difference in degrees in all three of them.
  • The closest degree to Mercury will influence Mercury more, however if Venus and Saturn are both within 5 degrees of Mercury, then it gives mixed results.

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 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?
