Conjunctions are one of the most important aspects of Vedic astrology. They occur when two planets occupy the same degree of longitude in the zodiac. This can create a very powerful energy that can have a major impact on our lives. Conjunctions can be either benefic or malefic, depending on the planets involved. Benefic conjunctions can bring good luck and fortune, while malefic conjunctions can bring hardship and struggle.
Conjunctions can also have a very strong influence on our relationships. For example, a conjunction between Venus and Mars can create a strong connection between two people, while a conjunction between Saturn and Rahu can create conflict and discord and lots of struggles and disappointments in the life of the person.
Sun and Moon conjunction is known as Amavasya, or so called “New Moon Day”.
It is the day when Moon light is absent, and a belief is there that the departed forefathers or “Pitrus” come down to the earth during this period of Moon. This is the time when evil spirits and the energies of Black magic are the strongest. Many important Hindu rituals are performed during this period.
Most importantly, if a person has Sun and Moon conjunction in their birth chart, his Moon will be termed as “Amavasya Moon”, thus, this brings lots of good and bad effects in the life of the native. Today, in this article we will discuss about the effects of Sun and Moon conjunction in the 1st house.
Sun and Moon in Vedic Astrology
In order to fully analyze the effects of Sun and Moon conjunction, we need to first understand what these planets really mean in Vedic Astrology.
In Vedic astrology, the Sun is considered to be the king of all planets. It is the source of light and life, and it represents the soul. The Sun governs our identity, ego, and self-expression. It also rules our vitality, creativity, and willpower.
The Sun is exalted in Aries and its debilitation sign is Libra. In a birth chart, the Sun shows where we need to assert our individuality and exercise our power. It also indicates how we can find success and fulfillment in our lives. The Sun is a powerful planet, and its energy can be both positive and negative.
Sun bring strong in the birth chart increases the overall strength of the birth chart it self. It is the king of all planets, thus, no matter how many bad yogas a person has in his birth chart, if his Sun is strong, it has the power to nullify all the bad yogas and be the sole planet to bring success, prosperity and happiness into the life of the person.
On the other hand, in Vedic astrology, the Moon is considered to be one of the most important planets. Known as Chandra in Sanskrit, this celestial body is associated with our emotions and intuitive insights, as well as how we interact with others. Specifically, the Moon is believed to have a strong influence over emotional states such as happiness, sadness, anxiety, and peace. It influences factors like relationships with others, ability to focus and concentrate, and prospects for success in work or business. Moon becomes exalted in Taurus and Debilitated in Scorpio Zodiac Signs.
The Karak houses for Sun are 1st, 3rd, 6th, 9th, 10th and 11th houses, while Sun gains Natural strength in the 10th house. Sun also creates a wealth giving yoga in the 10th and 11th houses.
For the planet Moon, the Karak houses are 4th house, 5th house, 9th house, 10th house and 11th house. Moon gives the best results in the 4th house as Moon gains natural strength in the 4th house.
The 1st house in Vedic Astrology
The 1st house in Vedic astrology is considered to be one of the most important houses in a horoscope. This house is associated with the self, and it determines things like your physical appearance, inner nature, and health and vitality.
The 1st house is also linked to issues like personal drives and motivation, as well as emotional strength and courage. In general, individuals with strong 1st house energies tend to be confident and assertive in their pursuits, while those with weaker 1st house energies may struggle with self-doubt or indecision.

The Karak planets in the 1st house are Mars, Jupiter, Sun, and Mercury. All of these planets bring extremely strong results in the 1st house, and make the overall strength of the birth chart very strong.
While, Rahu, Ketu, Moon and Saturn also give good results in the 1st house provided that there are benefic yoga’s in the birth chart that support the 1st house or the 1st house lord. Else, these planets when they sit in the 1st house can make the 1st house weak.
