Welcome back! If you are a member here, go get that free personality profile you got when you signed up. One of the benefits of being a member of The World's Greatest Astrology Dating Site is that you get to learn a little more about astrology... and about yourself too.
Last time (go read it if you missed it), we discussed how the aspects happen. This time, we're going to discover how they affect you and how the planets in your chart work. And since we are about to go on a voyage of discovery as to how the various planets in your chart work together, why not do it in style... on a cruise ship!
The symbol for CONJUNCTIONS looks a little like a stick man looking through a telescope, like the crew of a ship looking ahead to where the ship is going. When two planets are conjunct, they are in the same place in your birth chart, and their energies fuse into one thing. Those planets tend to have the same view of the world, and can be a driving force in your personality, giving you a sense of direction. Of course, those Conjunctions can also be so distracted by their own view of the world that they can overlook an oncoming iceberg. Often a strong Conjunction can be a driving force of your personality.
