Is this a conjunction?
I would like your opinion because I’m not sure whether or not there is a conjunction between the Sun and the Moon in my natal chart. I’m reading “Understanding The Birth Chart” by Kevin Burk.
He says, “Conjunctions occur between planets in the same sign.”
But later in the book he gives a description of Orbs, where he says,
“By adding up the moieties for the two planets, we can see how close together the planets need to be for their orbs to touch and therefor aspect each other.”
Sun 15 degrees (7.5 degrees moiety)
Moon 12 degrees (6 degrees moiety)
Therefor, for the Sun and Moon to be conjunct they have to be less than 13.5 degrees apart.
Astro.com doesn’t list it as an aspect on the Major Aspects List with my Birth Chart, but there is a little conjunction symbol in the Aspect Table.
So, given that the Sun and the Moon are not in the same sign, but are less than 13.5 degrees apart, would you consider there to be a conjunction?
