This week I decided to discuss what a stellium is in astrology.
You've probably heard of stellia (the plural name for them) as it's the name of this podcast! And it's likely you found my website or this podcast when googling "what is a stellium?" on the hunt for more information on this rather elusive and complicated spect pattern.
A stellium is when three or more planets congregate in the same sign or house in the horoscope. Such a concentration of planets can have quite an intense influence, whether natally or by transit.
What makes them difficult to interpret is that when planets get together by conjunction they tend to merge energies, influencing each other. The more planets that are involved, the harder it is to read them as a package.
This is likely because when learning astrology, we break things down individually and try to make sense of things in bitesize chunks. The the stellium comes along and asks us to jump ahead to that bit of the learning process where we try to bring it all together and make sense of the individual pieces of the puzzle as a whole.
But it doesn't invalidate your stellium if the planets are too wide for conjunction, it's still a heavily influenced area of your natal chart.
I've written about stellia for my website, so won't go in to too much detail here. Instead, I am sharing a link to the blog post for you to explore.
