Characteristics of Sun, Mars and Ketu Conjunction in Astrology

  • These native’s tend to push their agenda rather than doing anything.
  • Ketu's inability to think, and Mars’ quality of action makes this personality very unpredictable.
  • They can have outbursts at any moment, and they will not back down from a challenge including physical fights.
  • Ketu doesn't allow the soul (Sun) to think before taking actions.
  • This person has unbelievable will power, leading them to new heights in the corporate and government world.
  • The desire to achieve goals is restricted by Ketu's desire to let go.
  • This creates a sense of duty and obligation towards one's actions and goals.
  • The personality of the native is full of frustration, but they tend to come off as someone who is highly accomplished and confident.
  • However, their confidence lacks the backbone of patience and virtue.
  • They will hit without feeling guilty about it afterwards.
  • Capturing their goals is based on unseen manipulation.
  • This could either be a very cunning personality out there to only accomplish their agenda, or it can be a very aggressive, assertive and hot personality ready to take what they believe they deserve.

What is Sun in Astrology?

  • Sun in Astrology represents the Soul, so it tells us how conscious we are of our soul’s unbounded, enlightened nature.
  • A Sun that is very well placed in the chart can indicate a particular clarity about spiritual matters, and an unperturbed sense of who we are deep inside.
  • Having this “solar light” shining brightly brings self-confidence, personal power, leadership and health.
  • When the Sun is in a challenging position in Vedic Astrology, this light will not shine as much, and it is hard for the individual to trust that the core of their being is the individualized reflection of the divine light.
  • Not experiencing the connection with one’s own inner source of power will then lead to weak self-confidence, challenging relationships with authorities, and difficulty in balancing one’s ego with that of others.

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 Ketu in Astrology?

  • This shadow planet represents spirituality, nothingness, and goals that we already achieved in past lives.
  • In this life we are here to only rely on those things as a last resort.
  • The house and sign in which Ketu sits are in things we are not fond of, and we do not obsess about those things as much because subconsciously we know we have already dealt with them.
  • If we didn't accomplish those things in a past life, that would be seen by Ketu's bad placement in a bad sign.
  • This will show a tug of war between both Rahu and Ketu. Ketu also searches for truth and enlightenment.
  • Ketu's aspect and conjunction gives research ability to a person especially when it's in conjunction or aspects the Moon and Mercury.
  • Depending upon the house Ketu is in, it will make you either less needy of what that house represents, or will give you less desire to get the things related to that house.
  • Ketu feels like he’s already experienced the things of the house he sits in.
  • It feels that it has mastery over the things related to the house it's placed in.
  • Ketu is the part which you shouldn’t really care about too much as it will manifest itself without you even thinking about it.
  • Ketu is isolation, enlightenment, spirituality, occult, silence, psychic intuition, discomfort and mysticism.

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?
