Conjunctions in Vedic Astrology: What Happens When 2 or More Planets Join?

Conjunctions in Vedic Astrology are those unique combinations in which there are 2 or more planets together in a house or Bhava in the birth chart. Obviously different type of conjunctions have different effects on a persons life.

Different Types of Conjunctions

Conjunctions can be roughly classified into following categories.

1. Two planets in conjunction
2. Three planets in conjunction
3. Four or more planets in conjunctions

They can also be classified as benefic and malefic conjunctions depending on the nature of the planets involved. Then again different combinations in different houses will have varying effects.
