Question about the planets placed within a degree of two adjacent signs

Hi Ernst and group,

I am studying the avasthas of planets during upcoming solar eclipse on June 21st 2020.

I have a question about the planetary conjunction. For example, during the upcoming eclipse, Sun and Moon would be at 0 deg 20 mins Cancer and Rahu would be at 29 deg Gemini. Even if these are in different signs they are literally within a degree from each other. Should this be considered as conjunction or not?  If we consider it as conjunction then Sun would be in Vikaala(from deeptadi) avastha while Moon would be in Vikala(from deeptadi) and Lajjita(from lajjitadi) avastha. Since conjunction and no conjunction would make such a big difference in avasthas, it got me thinking real hard. 

If we don't consider this as conjunction then does that mean Rahu wont have any strong effect (in terms of avasthas) on Sun and Moon just because he is in different sign?

I feel like certain techniques might depend upon the planet being in the same sign, but generally it would seem kind of odd not to consider them conjunct when they are so close to each other even though they are in different signs. So it might not work for reading a specific house or sign technique, but I feel like Rahu will have an effect on the sun and the eclipse on Rahu. I also figure that the eclipse can effect both Cancer and Gemini, yet more so Cancer. Please anyone correct me if I am wrong.

Planets affect each other by both degree and signs. Planets within Tajika orb of each other will cause a tajika conjunction, but that is not a parasahra or jaimini conjunction, which are based on signs. 

AN ecplise in cancer, is an ecplise in cancer, not gemini at all. Just as a planet in cancer is in cancer, not gemini.

Hi @ernst,

In parashara system, does such scenario of planets withing a degree but in different signs get evaluated in any way?

Its not a conjunction, planetary aspect is also 0 from 300 deg(11th sign) to 30 deg(2nd sign) from the planet. Since its not a conjunction, conjunction related avasthas like Vikala, Lajjita etc are also not applicable here. So how can we interpret it's effects in Parashara system?
