Today, Mercury-Jupiter-Rahu Conjunction.
Let's 1st understand what these planets represent on their own?
Mercury - Mercury represents communication skills, marketing, calculative ability, younger siblings, hobbies, skills with hands, intelligence, quick decision making, logical thinking, youthfulness etc.
Jupiter - It is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Elderly People and Children etc. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Rahu - It represents Illusion, Foreign Lands, Foreign Things (foreign as in unknown things. So, for someone living in Punjab, culture and rituals of Kerala is also unknown and hence Foreign), Drugs, Medicines, any type of intoxication, Fame, Wealth, Success, Obsession, Past-life incomplete Desires, Movies, Television, Online World, Cheating, Imagined Fears, Unusual Things, Unique Things, Creativity, Rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions.
3 planetary conjunction - Whenever 3 or more planets are conjunct with each other in a house/sign then things related to that house/sign become a kind of life focus for person. It is because of huge accumulation of energy within 30 degrees of sky. It means not only these 3 planets' energy is going into this house/sign but the energy of at least 4 to 6 house/sign is going into this house/sign as these planets will be ruling some houses too. So, this house/sign with conjunction becomes almost the most important house in chart. During Career Consultation, I give a huge importance to any such house which has 3 or more planets in it.
House Ruler - Besides these karaka things, Mercury, Jupiter & Rahu will also rule some houses in your chart and will represent things related to that house. Of course we can't cover conjunctions Ascendant and house wise else it will never be over. So, you have to include things related to the houses at the time of interpreting this conjunction. Also, we need to keep in mind all Yogas and Raj-Yogas which their conjunction would be making to completely understand the conjunction. Here, we can only cover meaning as per karakas.
Meaning of Mercury-Jupiter-Rahu Conjunction - As it normally happens Rahu's association with Jupiter brings the interest, this conjunction also draws the interests. Mercury-Jupiter together makes a person very much knowledge oriented. Now, Rahu's association is 1st of all going to explode the knowledge of person. It means that person can be even obsessed to gain more and more information and knowledge. Rahu-Jupiter combination normally creates the effects of Guru Chandal Yoga and can create a very rebellious personality in matters of belief and religion. In matters of education also, they may have out of box thinking to interpret different subjects or topics. Or they can be interested in education of very unique type of subjects like Micro-Biology etc. They can be interested in learning foreign languages too. Now, Mercury's association with Rahu-Jupiter will provide the communication factor to this conjunction. So, they won't only have the rebellious views or knowledge but they will also have guts to communicate those views in public without any fear of backlash. Actually, in matters of knowledge, there is no limitation. These people can be seen as teachers, preachers, professors and counselors. They can get education in some very rare field of education. Overall, great conjunction for anyone interested in education though other areas of life like relation with siblings and teachers may get negatively impacted due to Rahu's malefic nature. It can also give excess fat or skin related diseases.
Who will win the Conjunction? - As Rahu is impacting Jupiter-Mercury both, Rahu has the upper hand in this conjunction.
Dignity & Strength - This conjunction will give knowledge related with the sign it is placed in. So, whichever sign/house it is falling in, person will get great knowledge in things related to that sign/house.
