Cazimi

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Cazimi (an Arabic term meaning “heart of the Sun”) refers to a very close conjunction—within 17 minutes—between a planet and the Sun. In contrast to the wider combust conjunction, which supposedly weakened a planet, the cazimi position was traditionally said to strengthen the influence of the planet involved. Partially because modern astrologers do not regard the combust position as having a debilitating effect in a natal chart—hence, making the combust/cazimi distinction one with no practical consequence—this term has dropped out of usage.
