Today, Mars-Venus-Ketu Conjunction.
Let's 1st understand what these planets represent on their own?
Mars - Mars represents our will power, courage, ability to take actions, aggressive nature, anger, our fighting ability, brother, male friends, a boy friend for a girl, a soldier, an athlete and real estate etc.
Venus - Venus is Beauty, Desire and Love, Liquid Money. Venus is the main significator of marriage. Venus represents girlfriend or wife for a man. Venus is the significator of all relations, may it be husband-wife or mother-daughter. Philosophically speaking, Venus is also the cause of all the sufferings in our life. How? Because Venus represents our desires and we get pain and suffering in our life only when our desires are not fulfilled.
Ketu - Just like Rahu, Ketu also represents Illusion as both are ilusionary planets but the difference is that Ketu is also the one who removes the illusion and brings enlightenment. Besides this, Ketu represents Isolation, Separation, Spirituality, Mystical World, Other Dimension means things related to Alien World, also represents Son, Dog, Intuition, Research Ability, Curious Nature, things which we have already achieved in past life and not much concerned to perform in this life.
3 planetary conjunction - Whenever 3 or more planets are conjunct with each other in a house/sign then things related to that house/sign become a kind of life focus for person. It is because of huge accumulation of energy within 30 degrees of sky. It means not only these 3 planets' energy is going into this house/sign but the energy of at least 4 to 6 house/sign is going into this house/sign as these planets will be ruling some houses too. So, this house/sign with conjunction becomes almost the most important house in chart. During Career Consultation, I give a huge importance to any such house which has 3 or more planets in it.
House Ruler - Besides these karaka things, Mars, Venus & Ketu will also rule some houses in your chart and will represent things related to that house. Of course we can't cover conjunctions Ascendant and house wise else it will never be over. So, you have to include things related to the houses at the time of interpreting this conjunction. Also, we need to keep in mind all Yogas and Raj-Yogas which their conjunction would be making to completely understand the conjunction. Here, we can only cover meaning as per karakas.
Meaning of Mars-Venus-Ketu Conjunction - Yet again, gentle benefic Venus is with 2 strong malefic planets. So, we can understand all the problems one can face in the matters of relationship/marriage. Actually, all these conjunctions where Venus is conjunct with malefic planets show that person can have past-lives karmic issues in matters of relationship. It is not necessary that you have done bad to someone, so you are supposed to face the results now but it can also be the inclination of soul as to how much karmic debt it wants to clear-off in one life. Sometimes, a soul can choose to pay-off majority of its karmic due, hence it takes birth with such planetary placements where it is supposed to clear-off the karmic debt to many people in one life only so that it can quickly move towards liberation. There is also a view that person who is not treating you well in this life is actually helping you to pay-off your karmic debt towards him so that you can evolve higher. Anyways, Astrologically speaking, this conjunction can again lead to situations of troublesome relations, verbal/physical fights with partner and possible physical abuse in relation. This is more probable if Venus is in between degrees of Mars & Ketu and therefore completely hemmed. At the same time, this conjunction can give great interest in research of occult, mysticism and any hidden subject. They can have special interests in matters of surgeries or explosives. Wealth can come through research related subjects. So, it is a good conjunction for any work related with research but it can be a challenging placement in matters of relations.
Who will win the Conjunction? - Mars-Ketu are impacting Venus and Ketu has further impact on Mars. So, we can say that Ketu has the higher say in this conjunction.
Dignity & Strength - This conjunction will be troublesome for relation in any sign/house though it can bring great wealth to person through research oriented activities.
