When the Sun and another Inner Self join forces
Conjunctions involving the Sun merge the Sun's symbolism of self-image, creative effort, personal pride and initiative with whatever the other planet (or planets) symbolize. These two are then joined together as a unit.
They function as a team or a partnership -- or like a pair of Siamese twins. Whatever affects one necessarily affects the other, and whatever one does, inevitably involves the other. You no longer look at or consider them separately.
Traditional astrology taught that conjunctions between the Sun and certain planets called "the malefics" (Mars, Saturn, Pluto ... and sometimes Uranus and Neptune) were problematic and unfortunate. However, I believe that all conjunctions with the Sun are beneficial.
I'll even say I think all conjunctions period are beneficial. They add power, dimension, and complexity to the planetary blend. They truly make life and the personality of the soul who owns one of them interesting. He is no longer simply a citizen of his Sun Sign like everyone born in this slice of the calendar. The alliance brings his character more depth and complexity ... and their results reach farther than the work of his unaffiliated star siblings.
When well aspected, the Sun in any sign is ambitious, confident, dignified, generous, and vital. When it forms a conjunction with another planet, that planet gains these qualities from the association ... and lends its own character and strengths to the fusion of energy.
