When two planets are conjunct, they are traveling close together in the same zodiac sign. As a result, they will blend their energies. This can either be an extremely powerful alliance like a megadose of one kind of energy, or too much of a good thing.
Of course, it depends WHICH planets are conjunct, since some (for example, restless Uranus or stressful Mars) could actually bring more tension than relaxation. When three or more planets are conjunct each other in the same house, this aspect is called a “stellium.”
In effect, conjunctions can be a blind spot. When the Sun is in close conjunction to Neptune, for example, others may note the distinction, but it can be hard for the native to distinguish between their sense of individuality and their spiritual, evasive, or roundabout nature. The native may just assume, naturally, that others are much the same way.
What conjunctions do you have? Do you feel that they work in tandem? Do you feel that they help aid a certain negative aspect about yourself but you need to work on?
