Moon. The mind!
Moon is the most sensitive planet in astrology. Any slight affliction by malefics can affect him badly. Moon should be very well placed for successful life on planet earth.
Moon represents: Water, mother, Praana, mood or mental state, emotions, mind, pearls, medicine, herbs, agility of mind, beauty, work related to water or diary, nourishment, winter season, chest/breast, phlegmatic humor, WBC, gems, diarrhea, left eye, fair complexion, state government, sweet speech.
A good and unafflicted moon placed anywhere in horoscope gives good results.
But how to judge a good moon?
There are many factors responsible for favourable nature of planets. I am sharing some special factors to look for moon only:
- Moon should be at least 3 places away from sun, it is also known as paksha bala.
- Horoscope should devoid of Kemdrum yoga.
- Moon Should not be in maran karka sthana. Moon’s MKS is in 8th bhava/house.
- Should be in benefic Shastiamsha.
- Should not be in paapkartari yoga.
- Also see it’s navamsha position, it’s should be well placed there.
- Should be aspected by Jupiter or in kendra from Jupiter.
Note: Consider all these points and then judge that how strong is moon in chart. I’ve not stated every factor required to judge a planet, so please use of general factors, like it’s sign, aspect, conjunctions etc.
