Today, Sun-Mercury-Venus conjunction.
Let's 1st understand what these planets represent on their own?
Sun - Sun represents Soul, Personality, King, Government, Father, Authority, Career, Top Positions, Ego, Self Esteem, Health, Education etc.
Mercury - Mercury represents communication skills, marketing, calculative ability, younger siblings, hobbies, skills with hands, intelligence, quick decision making, logical thinking, youthfulness etc.
Venus - Venus is Beauty, Desire and Love, Liquid Money. Venus is the main significator of marriage. Venus represents girlfriend or wife for a man. Venus is the significator of all relations, may it be husband-wife or mother-daughter. Philosophically speaking, Venus is also the cause of all the sufferings in our life. How? Because Venus represents our desires and we get pain and suffering in our life only when our desires are not fulfilled.
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, Sun, Mercury & Venus 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 Sun-Mercury-Venus Conjunction - This conjunction shows a very creative and skillful person. Mercury & Venus are both creative and skillful planets and in association of Sun which represents Soul, it shows that person's soul finds peace and satisfaction in creative pursuits. Person's creative excellence will gain him confidence and authority in life. It is better for this person to follow a career in creative field based on his interests, hobbies and passion rather than looking for a routine job setup. Sun's light will further brighten up the creativity of person. Even if Mercury & Venus are combust, it may hurt relations with siblings, friends or loved ones but person will remain creative. At worst, he will realize his creative side with certain delay in life. Another field of work for them can be any business related with finance & wealth. Sun is Career, Mercury is business and Venus is wealth. So, any career where they need to work with numbers and money can be good for them. It can be from lending money on interest to stock market or working in banks. They can be very pleasant in their communications but if Sun-Mercury are too close degree-wise then person's speech can be harsh or strict.
Who will win the Conjunction? - As Mercury-Venus are gentle planets, they will be impacted by Sun rather than impacting Sun. So, Sun will rule the conjunction as King should.
