Planets in Conjunction
We also need to understand the play of planets while they are in conjunction. Fore.g. if Mars, Venus and Mercury are conjunct in Cancer and we have Mercury in Leo,then as explained Mars and Venus would get into a relationship but as the sign isCancer and Mars is debilitated in Cancer, Mars will slip from the relationship andconjoin with Mercury and in a case where there is no aspect conjunction or any otherrelationship would mean that the concerned person would fall into a relationship witha lady and will be deceived. This is how we need to analyse the planets while we seethe conjunction of more than 2 to 3 planets.Nevertheless, though these are ideal examples, they have to be read in conjunctionwith transit, Jupiter rotation, Saturn rotation, rotating the significator if we need toknow broadly and the transitory position.
The two nodes of Moon (
Rahu and Ketu
The Hindu astrology has given great importance to the two nodes of moon (Rahu /Ketu), physically non-existent, yet regarded and treated as full-fledged planets.Rahu/Ketu represents the major given traits, understanding your life as a part of acontinued thread. The names attached to these planets are somewhat striking. Amonster called Serpent (Dragon) with little variation is used to depict the generalinfluence of these two.Rahu and Ketu act as a connecting point between the unknown past (karma) and theknown present. In other words, these two planets bridge the gap between theprevious form of soul and the present soul. The Planets ruling the signs of Rahu andKetu have the Karmik control. While Ketu is the unknown portion of Karma – theplanet ruling the sign of Karma is called the incoming or past life, Rahu controls theKarma distribution in this life. These two planets have strong implication dependingon where they are in the chart and the aspects they make with other planets.A very important factor which would be explained in the charts is that if thedepositor of these two planets are in conjunction, no matter what the horoscope is interms of other Rajyogas, one will always see the person will rising in life and makinghis destiny. His rise could be in a positive or negative way, ending in peculiarcircumstances depending on the affliction. This combination has been seen in thecase of former PM of Pakistan, Mrs. Bhutto, Mr. Kennedy, Mr. Mujib-ur-Rehman etc.,to name a few.Yogas combination made by Ketu will make a person great, but will destroy him.Combinations made by Rahu will make the native enjoy powers lifelong, till death.These two planets are extremely important in terms of where they are placed andthe planets which come and energies them. It can be seen that a debilitated Marshaving Rahu ahead of it with no other planet in between Moon 12th to Mars and if this horoscope is of a lady, it can be predicted that she will be deceived by a personwhich will have a great impact on her destiny. Many such examples and how thesetwo planets make and unmake destiny are explained – need to be treated with greatcaution and care.
