View Full Version : Conjunction Of planets
I am trying to learn vedic astrology. Regarding Conjuction of planets I have a few questions:
1) Does the mere placement of 2 planted in a house means that they are in conjunct to each other ?
2) In my chart, mars & saturn are in house 4. Are they in conjunction ?
I have read that their conjunction is dreadful.
Can anyone shed some light on the conjunction concept & its application to my chart.
DOB: 15th jan 1984
POB: Kolhapur, Maharashtra, India
Thanks in advance

Conjunctions may be "exact" both the planets falling in the same degree of zodiac or "close" within some specified orbit,say 3 degrees(western) In classical Vedic astrology conjunction goes mostly by sign rather than degrees. Though two malifics Mars and Saturn together in a sign are not welcome, in your chart Saturn at 21.23 degrees is too far apart from Mars at 8.38 degrees to cause any conjunction effect. Further they are in different constellations, Mars in Rahu and Saturn in Jupiter thus giving different results depending on the placement of Rahu and Jupiter.
Thanks for your reply. That clarifies my doubt.
However I have a few subsequent questions.
1) In my chart, Mars becomes a Yogakaraka (owner of 5th & 10th). Also it is placed in the 4th house. So does that mean Mars adds benefic effects to my chart ?
2) Raja yoga is a combination of a kendra lord & kona lord. In my chart Mars (yoga-karaka) & Saturn (7th Kendra lord, 8th lord ) are both placed in 4th kendra.
Does this form a Raja Yoga & what is the strength of the same.
How does this raja-yoga or a yogakaraka planet function for me ?
I have been reading a lot of stuff online, however I think I am still amateur to predict anything with certainty.
Anybody's advice would be greatly helpful.

As per conventional astrology Yogakaraga is supposed to be beneficial to the native. KP stellar astrology does not recognise yogakarakas, Rajayogas etc. As I already mentioned Mars and Saturn in your chart will give the results of the planets in whose star(s) they are placed.
