SUN MERCURY CONJUNCTION
Sun Mercury conjunction is common in many horoscopes as Mer-cury remains near the Sun and as detailed above this is exempted from the combustion. Almost all astrologiacal works agree that Sun- Mercury combination is auspicious. The following are some of the results ascribed by different writers:- Fluctuating wealth, polite speech famous, respected, liked by king, a great man, wealthy and strong.
The person will have glaring beauty and strength but he will be fickle minded.
The person will be famous, clever, intelligent and happy etc.
The abvove analysis does not impose any limitation as to the distance between the planets conjoining though by implication, we have to assume that the extent and nature of the results depends much upon the distance between the combining bodies. There are as usual different shades of the combustion and combination being one of the modes of conjunction, it cannot be always treated as harmful.
So we shall now summarise the main findings of the foregoing discussion:-
1. Combustion of a planet in a horoscope is no doubt unfortunate
2. It is however nothing to be alarmed.
3. It is far less fearful that Saturn adversely placed or the lord of 22nd Drekkana.
4. There are other factors like aspects, position of planets in sign and house, lordship wtc. which we must look for.
5. At its worst, its effects will be mixed.
6. Venus. Mercury and Saturn are comparatively less fearworthy than other.
7. As all astrological afflictions, combinations, effects too is capable of being over come by Gems, mantras,yantras and medicines etc.
