Today, Mercury-Saturn-Ketu 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.
Saturn - It is all that which we don't like in our life. Saturn is Delay, Frustration, Restriction, Limitation and Anxiety. It is people of Authority, like Boss at your Work Place or Father-Figure at Home. Saturn is our Karmic Debt from past-life. Saturn is the things we didn't treat too well in our past life. Saturn is our Challenges and Lessons of life. Saturn is Old-Age, Teeth/Bones in Human Body, Diseases, Changes etc. Saturn represents our Step-Relations, it means that wherever Saturn sits, people related with that house give us Step Treatment. Saturn is Hard Work, Efforts and most importantly Perseverance etc. Nothing comes easy and in one go with Saturn. You have to work hard continuously over the longest possible period of life. Saturn makes a person Legend as Legends have one thing in common that they choose one field and work hard in it for whole life.
Ketu - Just like Rahu, Ketu also represents Illusion as both are ilusionary planets but the difference is that Ketu is also the one who removes the illusion and brings enlightenment. Besides this, Ketu represents Isolation, Separation, Spirituality, Mystical World, Other Dimension means things related to Alien World, also represents Son, Dog, Intuition, Research Ability, Curious Nature, things which we have already achieved in past life and not much concerned to perform in this life.
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, Saturn & Ketu 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-Saturn-Ketu Conjunction - Almost the same results like the earlier one Mercury-Saturn-Rahu. The living significances of Mercury will be feeling the heat as it is with two strong malefic planets. Like person can have almost no relationship with his siblings and cousins. He can have a problem in comprehending, grasping or communicating things, especially in early life. Person can even have some speech disorder. He may like to be a loner, very introvert and may not like to communicate much. All these results will be more prominent if Mercury is in between Saturn-Ketu degree-wise. As they are loners, they can be very good at research. In later life, they will be vocal but they will speak precisely. They can be very good with technical languages or legal languages. They can be in research field of these subjects. But again, the place where this conjunction hurts most is in relationship with cousins and siblings. In other relationships also, communication plays a vital role. As this person may not like to communicate much with others, his other relations can also suffer, especially in early life.
Who will win the Conjunction? - As Saturn is involved, it will have the upper hand always.
Dignity & Strength - As Saturn is involved, it will give similar results in any house/sign.
