Conjunctions

Sun Saturn Ketu Conjunction in Astrology

The Sun, Saturn and Ketu Conjunction in Vedic Astrology can cause a complete disconnect from the father. There is no common ground between the two. Ketu's Mars-like nature would also encourage the father to take physical action towards the child if Ketu has the highest degrees.

Sun in Astrology: ego, self expression, soul, personality, father, vitality, and karaka of 10th house (career).

Saturn in Astrology: responsibility, organization, structure, delay, separation, grief, life span as in longevity, antique items, old people, chronic illnesses, fear, anxiety, labor work, lower class, lower type jobs, construction.

Characteristics of Sun, Saturn and Ketu Conjunction in Astrology

  • The sense of duty in the native is lost and unidentified.
  • They don't know their purpose, and who they are supposed to be fighting for.
  • The native would have a battle within their own personality.
  • They are unable to fit in with others, and their focus and discipline will eventually lead them towards the occult and spirituality.
  • The native is drawn towards chaotic things.
  • The directionless Ketu could cause the native to be focused on the negative rather than the positive.
  • This is like a damper on the pure soul; a huge ink spot on a white sheet.
  • The Sun is not only being eclipsed and darkened, but completely blinded.
  • Rahu usually makes a person overconfident and Ketu causes a person to lose their identity.
  • If this native is focused on research subjects, they would slowly start to find themselves and indulge into things related to the Sun like creativity, art, acting, and photography.
  • This would be very healing for them. Doing creative work would be like igniting the fire under the eclipsed Sun.

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 Saturn in Astrology?

  • Saturn in Astrology
    represents grief, symbolic of how we relate to time.
  • When time seems to pass too slowly, we experience grief.
  • The condition of Saturn in the chart shows how permanent, eternal, and synchronized our connection with the light of consciousness is, being with us at even the most challenging times.
  • A well placed Saturn shows the person knows when to go slow and when to go fast, to always let this light be there for them.
  • By acknowledging the limits of where light can go in our relative existence, we can still maintain the experience of beings of light.
  • A challenging Saturn will allow the person to stray off-limits, where no light can reach and suffering prevails.
  • Without Saturn being bright, the person may wonder if things will ever be okay again.
  • Saturn in Vedic Astrology represents your uncle, the type of boss you’ll have, your good and bad deeds in this life or the past, how hard will you work, your true career and wealth, your level of maturity, and aspects of your life that might be restricted for at least 50% of the time.
  • Even though Saturn in Vedic Astrology limits your ability of certain aspects of your life depending upon the sign and house its ruling, it usually frees you up from its aftermath after the age of 35 per Vedic astrology.
  • Saturn is limitation, restriction, discipline, structure, order, law, obstacles, delay, focus, and separation.
  • Saturn is the General of the Army.

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?
