THE CONJUNCTION

Will-power, courage and dogged persistence characterise this aspect, though the nervous
strain may be so great that the native breaks under it, fighting, as a rule, to the last. Often the
character shows best in moments of danger but it has little patience under stress and strain. I have
only known one case wherein, to date, it has been something of a dumb note; here it falls in Leo in
the 12th and has externalized in the shape of dire suffering through the sickness of wife and children,
as well as injuries at games. An example of the splendid courage of the aspect is No. 965
in Notable Nativities; this is a woman so completely paralyzed as to be unable to move her limbs in
the least, but she draws, paints and writes with the tongue. This Conjunction has also the
Opposition of the Moon and Square of Neptune. Paralysis must sometimes be feared from the
tensions of Uranus.
Tennyson, who had the Conjunction in Scorpio in the 6th, was a moody and at times very
rude man, but one lacks in his poetry the strength and power of this aspect, rather than the romantic
writer who excelled in carrying us into the half-dreamland of The Lady of Shalott and Blow, bugles,
blow.
Charubel, the astrological seer, had the Conjunction in Capricorn; his natus exemplifies the
occult side of Mars intensified by Uranus: Tennyson also had an interest in such things, but it was
half-smothered by the age in which he lived. It is said that Cicero also had Mars conjoined with
Uranus in Capricorn, and his life and death contained bloodshed and tragedy.
Cases Nos. 145, 146 and 147 in Notable Nativities seem to imply that Inharmonious
aspects between these planets may in some measure denote weak-mindedness, probably through
an actual malformation of the brain (Mars).
