Conjunctions

Saturn and Jupiter Conjunction in Astrology

When Saturn, the delayer and judge, is in conjunction with the guru, law, and optimistic sage, it makes for a very old soul. These are your true judges, lawyers, and law-abiding citizens. But there is a tug of war between the two. One brings darkness and misery based on karma and the other gives optimism, light, wealth, and happiness due to past life karma. 

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. 

Jupiter in Astrology is the knowledge we gain in this lifetime. It is the concentration we put into learning something. Jupiter is the teaching of our father and educators. Jupiter also represents our belief system and our ability to follow the law. Jupiter is the lawyer in astrology.

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.
