In their movement around the natal chart, the planets pass through each degree of the zodiac – some more quickly than others.
When planets sit at certain degrees in the natal chart which resonate with planets at other degrees in the chart there can be a communication between each planet which colours their expression in your natal chart and life experience.
During today’s show we are exploring the conjunction aspect – when planets are at or around the same degree (give or take 8° of ‘orb’ meaning orbit).
A good way of thinking about this is as though the planets are holding hands, or conjoined like siamese twins!
We all experience an obvious conjunction every month when the Sun and Moon meet each month in the New Moon position, the conjunction begins when the Moon is 8° behind the Sun, and the conjunction finishes when he is 8° ahead of the Sun.
So, if the Sun was at 8° Cancer, then the Moon would be in conjunction between 0° to 16° of Cancer.
Planets in conjunction don’t really operate on an individual basis, they're so close to each other they don’t really notice the influence they have over each other.
As Sue Tompkins describes in The Contemporary Astrologer's Handbook, it’s like two bells ringing: the closer they are, the more in-time they chime with one another, the farther apart they are, the more you experience of a delay between each bell ringing.
