So here, we start with 2018.
Today, Moon-Mercury-Jupiter Conjunction.
Let's 1st understand what these planets represent on their own?
Moon - Moon represents Mind, Emotions, Mother, Local Government, Peace of Mind, Home Environment, Water, Milk etc.
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.
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, Moon, Mercury & Jupiter 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 Moon-Mercury-Jupiter Conjunction - This is one of the pleasant conjunctions to have as Moon & Jupiter are natural benefic planets and in their company Mercury is also changing itself into a benefic planet. This shows a mind fully occupied by information, knowledge and wisdom. Moon is Mind, Mercury is Collection of Information and Jupiter is Knowledge & Wisdom. So, this person can be a forever student and forever teacher. They can be very preachy type of and can be always found as teaching and preaching others. Their mother may be in same profession of teaching others and they may have picked up the habit from them. Basically, even if they are not in field of academics, they can still be very much into knowledge and spreading wisdom. Moon-Jupiter together is causing Gaj Kesari Yoga and they can be very rich if they go through dashas of these planets. Moon-Mercury is still a conjunction of enemies so mind can feel agitated or restless but association with Jupiter shows that more they go into the field of education and knowledge, the more peaceful they can become. Mercury-Jupiter is always a combination of a knowledge oriented person. So overall, this conjunction is all about knowledge, wisdom and sharing that knowledge & wisdom. Now, it depends on the house/sign where this conjunction may fall in chart. In 9th house or Sagittarius, it can be all about higher learning and religious/philosophical higher education but in 2nd house or Taurus it can be all about wealth or finance related higher education.
Who will win the Conjunction? - Here Jupiter is impacting both Mercury & Moon, hence Jupiter is ruling the conjunction.
Dignity & Strength -
In any sign, at least 1 planet will be in good dignity, hence results of the conjunction will largely depend on planets mutual impact on each other, as discussed above, and the dashas.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
