Today, let’s discuss the moon. As you know, the position of the Sun in our birth chart reveals the development of our self. Similarly, the moon represents our mind, our emotional sphere. It’s like our subtle body, often referred to as the astral body.
Throughout our various lifetimes, we have made progress, and our soul’s growth can be understood through the Sun. The state of our subtle body, however, can be understood through the moon in our birth chart. Our desires and inclinations, formed over many lifetimes, can be estimated through the moon in the birth chart.
I have also examined the birth charts of individuals with elevated thoughts and values. I’ve looked at the birth charts of saints and spiritual leaders in the world of spirituality. Likewise, I’ve observed the birth charts of individuals living at lower levels and those who frequently use harsh language, as well as those engaged in unruly behavior. Everyone’s moon position varies.
A person’s entire behavior can be understood through the moon. To ascertain their temperament, nature, whether the moon is in a dignified or debilitated state, and more, it’s necessary to first assess the relationship between the moon and other planets in their chart.

Moon’s Connection with Mars and Sun:
When considering the influence of the Moon, if we regard Mars as Earth’s son, then in a birth chart, the Moon conjuncts Mars, opposes Mars directly, or forms an aspect with Mars, leading to the manifestation of a strong sense of anger. It generates attraction towards the material world, intensifies the desire for wealth, and creates a strong inclination towards indulging in food and drink. There is a tendency to want control over everything, and the mind operates quickly. Emotions become prominent, and passivity may be observed. Blood-related issues could arise. The nature becomes courageous, yet desires can be quite strong. They have many lifetimes ahead.

Moon’s Relation with Mercury and Jupiter:
If Mercury is with the Moon, individuals tend to easily influence others. The mind remains fickle, like that of a child. Goals and aspirations in life change frequently. They can be a bit anxious and fearful. Their spiritual practice might remain incomplete, and they tend to apply logic to everything, leading to a wavering faith. They often leave tasks incomplete.
The best state of mind is when the Moon is in connection with Jupiter. If the Moon is with Jupiter, opposite Jupiter, undergoes a change with Jupiter, or receives an aspect from Jupiter, a deep spiritual inclination is usually present from childhood. Individuals born into such families tend to have a strong sense of direction in life, and they move forward with a grasp on consciousness. They often feel a strong attachment to their mother. However, they can be somewhat miserly or frugal with their heart, meaning they might hesitate to spend money on themselves or others. They might think multiple times before giving money to someone, but they comfortably spend for themselves and their families. They derive immense pleasure from acquiring knowledge and often make good advisors.
Moon’s Interactions with Venus:
When a connection exists between the Moon and Venus, it indicates that there are many lifetimes yet to be experienced. Interest in spirituality can be present or absent. The mind remains closely tied to intense desires. Material pursuits are significantly pronounced. Thoughts of desires emerge from childhood, and there’s an increase in material attractions. In girls’ birth charts, this connection is not considered favorable, as their thought patterns become uncontrollable at a young age. Dreams of millions are envisioned from childhood. They enjoy a life of luxury and comfort, but they tend to avoid hard work. They often borrow from others but still spend extensively. Occasionally, they might engage in gambling in hopes of sudden financial gain. Their attachment to their parents is generally less pronounced.
Moon’s Interactions with Saturn:
Those who have few lifetimes left, whose minds have become detached, and who are bound by the constraints of time often have a connection between the Moon and Saturn. They tend to have less interest in material pleasures. From childhood, they display a more serious demeanor. They are hardworking and remain engaged in some form of discipline and have a strong affinity for cleanliness and are quite fearless. They are born with an understanding of the actions described in the Bhagavad Gita. Require minimal necessities and wake up early in the morning. Their inclination towards meditation increases gradually, and they find solace in tranquility. They tend to be content and have a sense of selflessness. They are naturally compassionate.

From a young age, they have strong determination, but struggles and challenges persist throughout life. They may not find complete happiness from their parents, and there might be favoritism or bias. In terms of spirituality, as their life progresses, they become more renounced, self-controlled, and fond of solitude. As old age approaches, they might lose their partner’s company and experience loneliness. They love nature, adhere to its principles, and have an interest in Ayurveda.
Moon’s Alignment with Rahu:
When the Moon is with Rahu in the same sign, it’s both a blessing and a curse. Such individuals tend to follow through with their decisions. Their minds are highly imaginative, and they possess great creativity. They excel in various subjects and quickly connect with the subtle realm, often have premonitions about future events and sometimes experience sudden victories. The person might struggle with various addictions, be it alcohol, beauty, cigarettes, or tobacco. They harbor strong desires and might not always be faithful. They often don’t hold steadfastly to family traditions.
At some point in life, they usually have connections with individuals of the Muslim faith, even if only for a short time. Their character might not be impeccable, and their minds wander. They have a melodious tune playing within their minds and have the potential to become good writers, poets, directors, or photographers. They have inner strength, but it requires proper guidance. The person tend to stay up late at night, creating their own world. Rahu Ketu Transit 2019 – 2020 Report Gemini Sign
When the Moon is with Rahu, it signifies that many lifetimes are still ahead, and there are karmic imprints on the subtle body. Desires become highly ignited, and a dissonance can exist between external appearances and inner reality. They will need to undergo many lifetimes to fulfill their desires completely.
Moon’s Alignment with Ketu:
When the Moon and Ketu are in the same sign, the mind tends to become detached from the material world. Similar to Saturn, Ketu also imparts a sense of renunciation and spiritual inclination from childhood. If the Moon is with Ketu, it indicates a mature mind and consciousness. The subtle body has made progress, and the mental plane is clean. Their aura is powerful, and karmic imprints on their astral body are decreasing. Their subconscious mind becomes more awake, and they can easily get into meditation. Rahu Ketu Transit in 2016 for various Ascendant/Moon
Please note that astrology interpretations can vary, and these descriptions are based on traditional astrological beliefs. It’s important to consult a professional astrologer for a personalized and accurate reading of your birth chart.
Here, the discussions I have provided apply with 100% accuracy if the Moon is in conjunction (yuti) or opposition (pratiyuti) with another planet. If the Moon accompanies two or three planets or receives aspects, then it mixes the effects of all the planets. Therefore, the rules mentioned above do not apply in an absolute sense. This rule is also applicable in the Navamsa (D-9) chart.
