In Vedic astrology, a conjunction is when two or more planets occupy the same house. Different planets when they are in conjunction with each other, they bring a huge impact on the life of the person. Depending upon the house and the type of planet, the results will vary and it can either be negative or bring auspicious results.
Sun and Moon conjunction in Vedic Astrology is known to be very special because this conjunction happens during the time of “Amavasya” or so called Dark Moon. Amavasya holds huge importance in Vedic Astrology and Hinduism as many of the important Hindu rituals and pujas happen only during the time of Amavasya. It is believed that during the time of Amavasya, the departed souls of the earth return home for a visit, and this is the reason why, Our Pitras are worshipped and prayed to during the time of Amavasya.
Sun and Moon conjunction in general means that the native is born during the period of Amavasya, thus he/she suffers from Amavasya dosh, which bring inauspicious results upon the life of the person. The native may suffer from frequent mental turbulences, and such natives often have a difficult time controlling them emotions and mind. While Sun and Moon conjunction do not necessarily affect the native’s financial well being and career success, but his mind will certainly get affected.
Today, In this article, let’s discuss the effects of Sun and Moon conjunction it the 7th house.
Sun and Moon in Vedic Astrology
Sun is the king of all planets and it is the source of all life forms on earth. Sun represents the government, father, king, authority, and all the high status people and positions in life. Sun is also regarded as the soul and the deeds of our past lives, thus, from the 5th house, one’s past life fruits are also seen.
Sun is so important in Vedic astrology, that if Sun alone is strong in the birth chart, it forms a single Raj Yoga that’s stronger than any other Raj Yogas formed in the birth chart. Which even if all the planets in the birth chart are weak, if Sun is strong, Sun alone can nullify the negative results of all the bad yogas in the birth chart.
Similarly, Moon is considered to be the planet of emotions and the mind. It is associated with the signs of Cancer and Taurus, and its element is water. The Moon represents our capacity for feeling and intuition, as well as our ability to nurture and care for others. It is also associated with the maternal instinct, fertility, and creativity. The Moon is said to be exalted in the sign of Taurus, and its energy is said to be most powerful during the full Moon phase.
Moon as we know is the fastest moving planet, just like our mind which never stops, thus Moon is the clear representation of our mind and this is the reason why Moon is another planet which is so important in Vedic Astrology. It is also the planet which gains strength not, when it is too strong or too weak, but when it is stable. Thus Moon becomes exalted in the sign of Taurus which is a sign that represents stability and balance.
Effects of Sun and Moon conjunction in the 7th house
In Vedic Astrology, the 7th house represents relationships and partnership. The planets in this house influence our ability to form and maintain close bonds with others. The 7th house also represents marriage and the condition of married life. It is also the house of business and business partnerships. The type of business a person should do is also chosen from the 7th house.
The planets in the 7th house directly aspect the 1st house which is the house of self, physical body and personality.
Sun in the 7th house is generally not considered good, while Moon gives favorable results if it is alone in the 7th house. When both of theses planets co-join together in the 7th house, it makes the Moon combust and lose all of its benefic results.
In this case, Moon is our mind and emotions and when Moon sits with Sun in the 7th house, the native will face lots of mental turbulences and disturbances in his lifetime. He may suffer from lots of negative thinking and bad thoughts, this increases especially during the time of Amavasya.
Although, the native born will be extremely intelligent. Sun is still the king of all planets and many times, intelligence is also seen from the 1st house, thus the aspect of Sun on the 1st house will make the native bright, intelligent and knowledgable.
The native will have a strong and influential personality. Such natives are able to influence others and make the crowd follow them. This is also a strong yoga for government jobs and politics.
The native will excel in business and in his profession. The 7th house is the house of business, and when Sun sits in the 7th house, the native is able to do well in business, gains and benefits from business.
However, there is one issue with Sun and Moon in the 7th house and that is Ego. The native will be highly egoistic and will only want his words to be heard and followed. It is due to this nature of the person, that he/she suffers in his life in various relationship, whether it is interpersonal or business partnerships. Naturally, when the mind is completely taken over by the planet that represents Ego which is Sun, the native is bound to fall in the traps of pride.
While, the native can also be highly arrogant and short-tempered.
The biggest drawback with this conjunction of Sun and Moon in the 7th house is marriage. Sun burns the house that it sits in, thus Sun is normally not considered to be auspicious in delicate houses like the 2nd house, 4th house, 5th house, and the 7th house. The 7th house as we know is the house of marriage and married life and it is also the house of one’s spouse. Thus, Sun here brings frequent ego clashes and power struggles within the relationship of the native. The partners constantly fight for power and control over the marriage, thus, if the 7th house is under malefic influence, then the arguments and fights can lead to the situation of divorce.
However, under benefic influence, the marriage will be saved, but frequent quarrels and fights are bound to happen in the marriage.
Another major problem with this conjunction is that the native and the native’s life partner may suffer from health problems, which includes problems with bones, calcium deficiency, and other diseases related to the planet Sun. The health of the life partner may be weak.
While, the 7th house also represents foreign things, therefore, earnings and travels to foreign lands are also seen from this conjunction. The native will have multiple trips and travels to foreign lands.
While, if Sun or Moon makes a connection with the 10th house, then the native may face problem in his career. Frequent ego clashes, arguments can happen.
Overall, Sun and Moon conjunction in the 7th house isn’t really favorable. Although, the native will be financially well-off, strong and bold, Sun here is bound to create problems in the married life of the person.
