Moon In Astrology & Horoscope – Ultimate Guide
The Moon In Horoscope/ Kundli Governs:
The Planet Moon In Astrology denotes our deepest Emotions, feeling of Happiness and unhappiness, Receptiveness, Insightful mind, Intuition, Security or Safety, feminine energy, Home, Mother or motherly figured in society or in an organization, Strength or durability of mind at a certain point or matter, any kind of Fragrance, Wife, and Lover. In case of metals and gem, it represents Silver and Pearl respectively, White color, Travels of any kind, our Will power. Moon in astrology also controls the water part in our body and blood’s white portion.
Moon in astrology rules our Habitual actions and prejudices. It is considered a very important planet after Sun in astrology. What your mind is attracted to that can be known through the placement of the moon in a house in the horoscope.
Festivals, tithis, and other Panchanga parameters go on the basis of the moon and its placement. Moon transits from one sign to another sign in almost 2.5 days. Even when Moon is in one sign it goes through various Nakshatras and gives a change in our day to day thought process and mood.
Where the moon is placed in the chart that is our moon sign or Rashi according to Vedic astrology. In Vedic customs or rituals, it is considered auspicious to keep our baby’s name also on the basis of the moon’s position in the chart and its nakshatra. But, remember one thing, if Saturn, Rahu or Ketu conjuncts with moon then it is not advised to keep name according to moon’s placement and nakshatra, it brings misfortune in the life.
The favorite dasa system available only in Vedic astrology to unfold the secret of time is also based on Moon’s Nakshatra, which we also call janma-nakshatra.
The overall dasa results depend on the strength of the moon in the chart. It does not matter which planetary dasa you are going through, if your moon is not strong in the chart, you will not be able to feel the good or bad effects of the dasa. For example, you bought a car during your 4th house lord’s dasa-antardasa, say you were waiting for a long time to buy such a car, your dream has come true, but you are not feeling the mental happiness after buying, what you should have felt after buying the car. Either you are feeling blank or nothing special. See the position of the moon in your chart, either the moon is not strong or the moon is placed in 6th, 8th, or 12th house from the Dasa lord.
Moon represents the Water element. We all know how the moon influences the low tide and high tide on the source of water on earth, in the same way, the moon influences our body and mind in day to day basis, because our body is comprises of 70% of water.
This is the moon, on the basis of which we calculate the sade sati of Saturn. When someone thinks about sade sati, becomes scared of bad things. The result of sade sati is not about bad state always. I have seen in case of libra lagna natives if Saturn is well placed in the natal chart then they do not even feel that they are going through the sade sati phase. Sade sati is counted on the basis of transit, always remember, your natal chart overpowers transits.
Planets in transit only magnify or de-magnifies the effect of the natal chart’s result. For example, if someone is going through very favorable dasa according to natal chart then the Saturn’s sade sati will not be able to give that much bad result. But, if the dasa is bad then the sade sati will magnify the bad effects of the time period.
Moon signifies a very important part of your life, that is sleep and night. Can you imagine a day without sleep? Just remember the night you were unable to sleep properly, the next morning, your whole day was completely dull, without any interest to work, even you do not show interest to talk to your loved ones or do not enjoy your favorite food. Sleep balances our life, thus the planet moon plays an important role by balancing our life through maintaining a continuous balance between body and mind.
If the moon and 4th house both are afflicted by malefic planets like sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu or 6, 8, 12 house lords then the person suffers from insomnia. His relationships in every aspect of life suffer badly. Because 4th house and moon signify mind and when someone’s mind is not stable, he will be unable to maintain any relationship in the world. Because, if you are not happy, you can not make others happy at all.
If your moon is afflicted you will not feel happy for anything. Because, what you call happiness that happens within your mind, not on the outside. You will find, some people get happiness out of small things also, and some can not be happy after fulfillment of their highest desire, even if they were longing that for long. If you see both of their charts you will find that the secret of their happiness lies in the placement of the moon in their charts.
Moon is the karaka for 4th house matters of horoscope. Moon’s placement in 6th, 8th, 12th houses of any chart, people do not get sound sleep at all. Especially 12th house moon gives a lot of dreams at night and when they wake up they feel a burning sensation in their eyes. The same thing happens when the moon is in 3rd, and 9th house, because these two houses are 12th and 8th from its 4th house of karaka of the moon. only the difference here is the intensity of the effect is less compared to dusthana houses.
Moon In Different Houses Of Horoscope Or Kundli In Vedic astrology
Moon gives various types of results in various houses in a horoscope.
Like, the moon’s placement in 1st house makes a person very moody and a great attention seeker. They change their mind very frequently, and if you do not appreciate them on their look, they will not like it at all. If any of your dearest one’s moon is in Lagna, I can understand how challenging it is for you to handle him/ her.
As 2nd house is the house of money and family. Moon’s placement in 2nd house makes a person always concerned for family members and money, especially bank balance. They are just obsessed with these two.
Moon in 3rd house makes a person slow mover. They waste a lot of time to reach the final decision of any kind.
Moon in 4th house gives intermittent problems related to 4th house matters, like the mother, fixed assets, mental happiness, etc. There is a rule in Vedic astrology which is called karaka bhav nasae, it means when a planet goes to its karaka house then it destroys the signification of that house. Moon is the karaka or significator of 4th house. So in this house moon does not give good results. Moon’s placement in this house makes a person feel insecure, even where there is no to feel so.
Moon in 5th house gives psychic abilities. I have seen this position of the moon in many psychic’s charts. As 3rd house is the house of the subconscious mind, 5th house is the house of a superconscious state of mind.
Moon in 6th house natives suffers from frequent cough and cold. Sometimes they become fearful of unknown diseases and feel uncomfortable. They are the people who cannot tolerate the hospital atmosphere at all, because they feel sick even when there is no presence of actual disease.
When the moon is in 7th house, you get a very caring partner in life. Because the moon is all about compassion and care.
Moon in 8th house is not considered good if you are trying to get materialistic happiness in life. This placement is for psychics and occult practitioners. Moon is your mind. 8th house destroys moon qualities completely and you reach the state of NO-MIND. But if you stick to worldly matters then you will get unhappiness only. Because the world is all about the illusion of the mind. Nature is trying to take you to the other realm from this illusionary state of mind but you are continuously fighting with nature by opposing her.
9th house moon makes you religious and gives long journey.
Moon in 10th house makes you a good planner, not for yourself but for others. You have got a very creative and imaginative mind. If you are into any profession which feeds your imagination like story writing, in the film who handles the story part can prosper in life.
When moon goes to 11th house it gives very caring and loving friends. These people generally have large friends group. If anyone in your friends’ group has a moon in the 11th house you will find that a person is very popular among all of you. They make the group vibrant.
The 12th house moon gives frequent change in decision. This is the house of loss, so they losses their mind, enthusiasm, decisions, and other mental faculties very quickly. One thought goes away and another comes. They think so many things at the same time that they forget easily. It results in short-time memory loss also. 12th house is the house of old age, thus the placement of the moon in this house gives worries like older people. They worry a lot even for small things in life.
All these house placements oriented results may vary a little on the other aspects of the moon in a chart.
Importance Of The Moon Sign In Astrology
The Position and placement of Moon In horoscope can reveal the secret of anyone’s inner self, those innermost feelings, deepest desires, and soul urges that everyone cannot see.

Result of Exalted Moon In Horoscope
Moon is exalted in chart within 3 degrees in taurus. When moon is exalted in chart it gives a person high convincing skills, creative mind and leading power.

Sometimes in life we “know what we mean, while trying to express something but can’t say or express it properly,” then you should understand it is the Moon energy within you who knows it what to say but your Sun’s energy is not enough capable to express or say it. Your deepest thoughts bring tears to your eyes without pronouncing a single word that is your Moon. The wordless state, the mute grief, the secret fantasies and dreams, the obscure picture of yourself what you can’t express to the world, the time you are completely misunderstood by others – these all are the exclusive products of Moon’s nature in your Kundli.

Moon governs over the formations of emotional appearance of a person which comprises his or her natural attitude, memories, and ability to adjust with our surroundings wherever we are at any point of time. A well=placed Moon in astrology turns all its significations into positive and propels a person’s life towards right direction what ultimately makes the person happy and content in life. But on the other hand, when Moon is afflicted or debilitated and ill-placed it turns all its significations into negative and propels a person’s life towards the wrong direction what ultimately gives an unhappy and miserable life.
