Moon : Significance in Astrology

Moon is considered to be a benefic planet in astrology. Moon is the fastest moving of all the grahas. It changes rashi every two and a quarter days. 

Moon is the karaka for mind. Hence, a person’s moon sign and nakshatra are of utmost importance in his personality development. Moon is also the karaka for mother. Moon also represents women in the society. 

Moon in 8th house in horoscope can give lot of tensions, specifically in the moon dashas or during the transit of Saturn over the moon.

When Jupiter is in Kendra from moon, Gaj Kesari yoga is formed. For best effects from this yoga, both moon and Jupiter should not be afflicted. Gaj Kesari bestows wealth upon the native.    

Functions governed of Moon in Astrology

  • growth,
  • regular,
  • cyclical changes,
  • decrease,
  • increase,
  • filling,
  • spending.

The principle determines a person’s ability to adapt to constantly changing living conditions. 

The principle of mutability is also associated with a person’s need for self-reproduction, which ensures the rhythmic preservation of life on earth, and therefore, with sexual attraction to a certain partner, the ability to bear children, with conception, pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood, feeding and fertility.

Moon determines the nature of a person’s food preferences (vegetable, dairy, animal), his attitude to food, and controls its assimilation.

Cancer Zodiac sign is Ruled by Moon

The moon rules Cancer , and this symbolizes the property of the human subconscious that all kinds of energy and information enter and essentially affect it, but little that comes out of it back in the form of thoughts or reactions. 

The position of the moon in horoscope also characterizes the general characteristics of human perception; a strong moon can compensate for the absence of planets in feminine signs. 

Domination in Cancer gives the Moon a depth of penetration into the human soul, which is largely manifested in the most “base” habits and behaviors of the egocentric type (the hypostasis of the Child). 

The insidiousness of Cancer is also manifested in the properties of the Moon, which fools a person’s head for his own good (as she understands it) and, ruling Cancer, the Moon controls the general emotional background of human life …

Moon Culminates in Taurus

The culmination of the Moon in Taurus symbolizes the fundamental role of the subconscious in human life and the difficulty of the task of its restructuring. 

At the same time, this culmination shows that all programs of the subconscious do not rely on the subtle world (although the latter is also essential), but on the most natural earthly reality, embodied in dense forms. 

With the evolutionary growth of a person, the values ​​of the subconscious and the very concept of dense forms are gradually transformed and refined, but very slowly: the mind is too frivolous and mobile, the lunar wisdom of the ancestors is simply obliged to hold it slightly – where, pray tell, to hurry? And if you hurry, you will make people laugh.

If a person has strong Moon in horoscope

  • person has calm manners,
  • respectable,
  • law-abiding,
  • soft, gentle creature,
  • gravitating towards everything simple,
  • ingenuous. 
  • This person seeks innovations and admires them,
  • naturally inclined to change their place of residence. 
  • Fickle, completely caring about the current time,
  • loving to live in peace, free from the worries of this life.

A strong Moon in horoscope gives a person an unusually comfortable background in life, troubles are always mitigated for him, and pain (physical and mental) in emotional memory is quickly and forever forgotten. 

Harmonious Moon gives brilliant abilities for any learning and adaptation, but they are so natural that a person does not appreciate them and sincerely believes that other people are arranged in the same way. 

If a person has weak Moon in horoscope

  • An ordinary vagabond,
  • lazy,
  • hating work,
  • a drunkard,
  • a person who does not possess either the gift of foresight or fortitude, who adores living beggarly and carelessly,
  • dissatisfied with everything in the world – both good and bad.

A weak Moon means a certain detachment of a person from the flow of life: there is little that really touches and worries him. He is rather indifferent to his needs, he can, for example, calmly mix soup, porridge and cutlet in one plate and eat everything together without feeling any inconvenience. 

He does not feel inner support from his subconscious, helping in difficult and stressful situations, but he does not feel any special pressure from him, forcing (with the help of passions, keen desires, etc.) to any active actions aimed at pleasing the ego. 

He is most likely indifferent to general social problems, family, children, his people. Such a position may mean an indifferent mother, who nevertheless fulfills her maternal duty as such. 

Here the subconscious mind works like a remote control mechanism; when elaborated, this gives great opportunities (division of labor), but interaction with the subconscious is still very difficult for a long time.
