Understanding Planetary Conjunction:

Your birth chart reflects the arrangement of 9 planets around 12 houses, as recorded at the time, place & date of your birth. However the planets continue to move or transit in their orbit around Sun casting different affects at all times on the planetary configuration of your birth chart.

The promise of a chart is delivered when while transiting 2 or planets get arranged in a specific location in your horoscope.  When that happens, their resultant effect can make an ordinary looking chart deliver highly benefic & powerful results during that period itself.

 When 2 or more planets come together or conjunct in a horoscope, during their transiting motion, the effects are greatly enhanced benefiting the native. This is what we commonly call as the effect of conjunction of 2 or more planets in transit.  

How a 4 Planet Cluster would form in Leo in your Horoscope:

 On 28th August, 4 planets cluster together in the royal Leo sign in your horoscope.  Here the retrograding Mercury that is moving backwards rapidly towards this cluster joins the conjunction making it even more unsteady.  This period would also see the high energy conjunction of Mars & Rahu, the dragon’s tail on the 27th August within the same orb.

Important dates when this combination would operate in your horoscope:
The above combination will form in the manner given below.

    Transit Sun will be in Leo sign from 17 Aug 2017 to 17 Sep 2017.
    Transit Mars will be in Leo from 27 Aug 2017 to 13 Oct 2017.
    Transit Mercury will be in Leo from 21 Jul 2017 to 27 Sep 2017, while Mercury will be retrograde from 13 Aug 2017 to 05 Sep 2017, a critical period.
    True Rahu will be in Leo until the end of Aug 2017; while Mean Rahu will be in Leo till 18 Aug 2017 (results of both will be effective).
    Overall the combined effects of the cluster in Leo will actually operate from 28 Aug 2017 to 07 Sep 2017

The significance of Total Solar Eclipse & how it affects life trends:

    During the important transits of four planets through vital areas of your horoscope, you will also need to appropriately handle the effects of the solar eclipse occurring on 21 Aug 2017.
    The effects of solar eclipse will occur not only on this date but will also extend to six months from the date.
    In your birth chart, the solar eclipse will occur in the 12th house [of expenditure and abroad and spiritual way] from your ascendant and in the 2nd house (wealth, speech, food, family, bank balance and eyes) from Moon sign and these houses will remain specially activated and sensitize during these six months.
    The eclipse can make many changes that can influence the above areas.
    The need for paying attention to the solar eclipse is to simply harmonize your actions with the change of planetary climate.
    During this period, you should take care of your finances and focus on the safety of your valuables as you may suffer some losses due to theft during this period.
    You may have to be extra careful to avoid trouble from enemies. Moreover, you are also likely to be humiliated and some unseen problems might crop up in your field activity.

The dates & the planets Solar Eclipse would effect:

    The solar eclipse will occur on 21 Aug 2017 in Leo [where the cluster of 4 planets is located].
    Thus the solar eclipse will affect/influence Sun, Moon, Mars, and Mercury and also Rahu in transit in Leo by direct conjunction in the 12th house from your ascendant Virgo and transit Ketu in Aquarius in the 6th house from ascendant by the opposition.
    Solar Eclipse will also be in adverse trine with natal Sun in Sagittarius, in the 4th   house from the ascendant.
    The influence of solar eclipse on the above planets can be adverse if you cannot balance out the good energies with the negative ones.

Based on the planets placed in the houses it effects:

    The cluster of planets and the solar eclipse occupy Leo and will aspect Aquarius, the 6th house from ascendant and the 8th house from Moon.

    The events leading to all possible positivity will occur till 11 Sep 2017 and will start giving good effects and results gradually after this date.

Precautions and remedies:

    At this stage many temptations, confusions and finally unwise and hasty actions alternating with a tendency to procrastinate will develop to much higher degrees
    You will need to basically try to remain calmly focused on your own priorities and think well before you speak on or take any action in any important matter, especially in those related to all forms of relationships with special emphasis on marital and social life, matters of legal significance, professional equations, inflow and outflow of money, any new financial demands or commitments, any pending debts, taking loans and making risky investments.
    You may not get the support of others including siblings or friends.
    Lack of cooperation from all other people around you, at home, at work or in society, will be highly pronounced.
    Thus you will need to avoid expecting any help or support from any quarter and meet your needs based on your own initiative, and resources only.
    Otherwise, your problems and commitments will surely multiply.
    It is a time that demands a calm mind, logical thinking, planned action and above all strong determination.
    Strictly avoid communication failure and controversies with seniors and colleagues at work.
    Alertness and self-discipline will be the key areas that will demand continued attention.
    You will also need to take good care of your health and avoid overstraining yourself.
    If you can move along the lines suggested here, you can effectively come down most issues and in some cases, you may be able to even avoid them entirely.


    Chanting Mantras and meditation can be of great help. During solar eclipse, you should chant this Mantra:
    “Om Adityay Vidmahe Divakaraye Dheemahi Tanno Suryah Prachodayat”

Strictly avoid eating non-vegetarian food on the day of eclipse and if possible, maintain this restriction during the next six months.
