The Conjunction Aspect
The conjunction is a major aspect and also known as a Ptolemaic aspect.
Two planets close to each other are conjunct. The orb for a conjunction is 8° only.
This is a good placement for most planets as the two planets blend their energies and you can benefit from this joining of forces.
The circle divided by one. 360°/1 = 360°
Usually, planets in conjunction will be in the same sign or house.
When a conjunction occurs over a sign boundary they are said to be in a disassociate conjunction.
For instance, if the Sun is at 29 Virgo and the Moon is at 4 Libra they are still conjunct, but in a disassociate conjunction.
Conjunction Aspect Meaning
The conjunction is the most powerful aspect.
Blends It inclines the two planets towards togetherness and blends their energies.
Synergy The planets virtually move as one and they have synergy. Synergy means one plus one equals three. Each planet is indistinguishable from the other.
Close proximity They show the same face to the world. Because of their close proximity, it is hard for the first planet in the conjunction to clearly see the second planet and vice versa.
Conjunctions with other planets
Sun conjunctions add life to the other planet.
Moon conjunctions combine a reactive element to the other planet.
Mercury conjunctions combine a learning element to the other planet and suggest what is spoken about.
Venus conjunctions show what is loved and invested in.
Mars conjunctions bring energy to the other planet.
Jupiter conjunctions expand the other planet.
Saturn conjunctions restrict the other planet.
Uranus conjunctions bring a unique element to the other planet.
Neptune conjunctions dissolve the meaning of the other planet.
Pluto conjunctions bring power and support to the other planet.
