Cazimi is a medieval term, it comes from the Arabic term for “ in the heart of the Sun”. This is a special type of planetary dignity and marks a special moment when a planet is in close conjunction with the Sun, to be precise within 1 degree or below 17 mins. When a planet is in Cazimi with the Sun, it would be a very rare and auspicious event.  It is one of the best forms of luck. It is an accidental dignity and the Moon would be in Cazimi with the Sun for about one hour time, half an hour before and half an hour after a New Moon.

The Sun is the source of energy and illumination for our entire solar system. It represents our ego, pride and self in astrological studies. The Sun is said to be very powerful, both astrologically and astronomically. It has tremendous force that is capable of supporting life here on planet earth. All the planets are in constant movement around the Sun. When they come near the Sun, the planets lose their power and identity and get burnt which is termed as combustion in astrology. Sometimes, they come still closer to the Sun.  This journey towards the Sun within an orb of 16 to 17 mins is called as Cazimi. When the planets are between 8 to 18degrees they are said to be under the Sun’s beams and when between 1 to 8 degrees are said to be combust, which are the other two forms of conjunction.
