Characteristics of Moon, Venus and Rahu Conjunction in Astrology

  • Rahu enjoys Venus' company due to her love for sensuality, relationships, love, art, pleasure, fame and wealth. Rahu's ability to amplify those characteristics is also quite welcomed by Venus.
  • Rahu gives fuel to Venus' ability to seek pleasure, which leads a native to work hard and achieve his or her goals, usually in a creative field.
  • Rahu again is a natural malefic, and doesn't like the Moon at all.
  • For this reason, the mind can become obsessed with the pleasure Venus seeks and can lead to dramatic  results.
  • The native is always caught in some drama due to their own misunderstanding and misdirection caused by Rahu.
  • Rahu's desires are never sated, so love, relationships, sexuality, and lust are amplified, yet left unfulfilled.
  • It can lead the person's mind to think they need more, and they need something new.
  • Rahu and Venus conjunction usually leads to a foreign partner or someone from foreign lands.
  • Since the mind is involved, the native seeks extreme pleasures in such places.
  • If Rahu has the highest degree in the chart for a male, then it can lead to marrying a wife who might actually be like Rahu.
  • This woman would be cunning, pleasure seeking, and always looking for more. If Venus sits in a strong sign like Taurus, Libra, or Pisces, where Venus has full control, she will be able to stand her ground without being influenced by Rahu’s scheming ways.
  • The native can also have a mother who might be a healer or doctor if Rahu has the lowest degree.
  • She may only seek her children’s company for pleasure.
  • The mother of this native may actually indulge in her own pleasure most of the time if Rahu has an eclipsed Moon.

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 Venus in Astrology?

  • Venus represents the convenience of luxurious items like a car, air conditioning, clothing, jewelry, wealth, and beauty inside the home.
  • Since Venus signifies pleasure, it can be any kind of pleasure: sex, art, entertainment, interior decoration, beauty pageants, or anything else related to having fun.
  • Venus in a man's chart also shows his wife, or the type of women he comes across in life. Venus signifies marriage for both men and women.

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?
