Today, Mercury-Saturn-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.
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.
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, Saturn & 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-Saturn-Rahu Conjunction - It is again one of those conjunctions where a gentle benefic planet is with 2 strong malefic planets. We can say that in beginning of life, results of Mercury related things can be almost nil. Like person may speak very less or even may have speaking disorders. Relations with siblings can be really troublesome. Person's ability to communicate, understand, grasp of explain things can be seriously damaged in early life. All these results can be more prominent if Mercury is in between degrees of Saturn & Rahu. Positively, this person can be good with technical languages like computer languages. He can be very goo with new-age technology gadgets. He can be in business of these things only. But as Saturn is involved, person will have to work really hard to understand and learn all these technological things. Nothing comes easy with Saturn and Rahu's position in the same house is only going to enhance the hard work and delay factor. Rahu-Saturn together always creates stress and frustration where a person is unable to achieve something till mid-30s which he wants to achieve in early 20s. It means that success in such fields can be seen only after mid-30s or 40s. Till then, it is all Saturn's game of hard work and perseverance. Living significances of Mercury like friends, cousins, siblings etc are almost reduced to 0.
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.
