|Planetary Conjunctions -
Mars with other planets
In two preceding articles, we discussed the results
that Sun and Moon produce in conjunction with other
planets. We propose to examine the results that Mars
produces in conjunction with other planets in this
Mars-Mercury: This is a very favourable combination
that makes the native very dynamic and energetic.
Astrology describes the Mars-Mercury Samyoga as a
fine blend of dynamism with the knowledge of Science
and Mathematics. They say that this Samyoga produces
great engineers, physicians, surgeons, astronomers,
and mathematicians. If this conjunction falls in a
good House with good aspects, the native would
definitely become an outstanding academic and a
professional. If the conjunction is afflicted, the
native would become a very clever cheat and a
fraudster who lives by his wit.
Mars-Jupiter: This too is a very favourable
combination if it falls in a good House with no
malefic aspects. The native would be a forward
looking, proactive person of indomitable courage. He
would be fiercely independent. He would possess such
noble qualities and psychic powers he would easily
win others over to his viewpoint. These natives
possess a sharp intellect and perception and none
would match them in oratorical skills. They would
cause no harm to anyone and would not tolerate any
harm done to them either. If this conjunction is
afflicted, the native would be a prodigal person. He
would be eternally in financial difficulties.
However, he would have courage and grit to face any
difficult situation. The native would lose at cards.
If the conjunction is in a sign friendly to both
planets, he would be a righteous person.
Mars-Venus: This is yet another favourable
combination provided it is not afflicted. The blend
of dynamism and drive of Mars with the finer
qualities of Venus would produce a peace lover, an
artiste, a lover of arts, a great actor with a
magnetic personality and a bold and courageous
person with sterling qualities. However, he would be
a very passionate person given to seeking sensual
pleasures. Mars-Venus combination produces a
physically strong person. If the conjunction is not
afflicted, the native would be a happy-go-lucky,
care-free, playful character. He would be a clever
businessman or an entrepreneur. He would be popular
among the fair sex. However, his marriage would be a
failure if Mars or Venus becomes the lord of the
Lagna or the 7th House. If the conjunction is
afflicted, the native would lose all his possessions
in the pursuit of gratifying his sexual desires. He
would seek the company of women of loose morals. If
the conjunction occurs in a watery sign (Cancer,
Scorpio or Pisces) he would become an alcoholic.
However, the person can become a good person if he
overcomes his failings with determination after a
self-appraisal or with the prior knowledge of the
Mars-Saturn: A person born with this conjunction
would acquire qualities like forbearance, endurance
and patience. He would have a good retentive power.
He would enjoy robust health. If the conjunction is
fortified with beneficial aspects, the native would
rise to a very high position in an academic field.
He would be very economical in the use of his
wealth. If the conjunction is afflicted, results
could be disastrous. People with afflicted
Mars-Saturn Samyoga could become ruthless killers.
If the two planets occupy the 2nd House or 8th
House, the native would suffer from hypertension. If
Saturn as the lord of the 2nd House conjoins with
Mars in whatever House, native would definitely be a
heart patient. He would even suffer from dementia.
