A Cancer moon sign has good imagination. Such a person is also able to absorb other’s ideas quickly. A Cancer Moon is sensitive, emotional, sympathetic and sentimental by character. Cancer sign also indicates intelligence, creativity, adaptability and soft-spoken nature. Cancer born are a bit volatile by nature. Moon in Aries people tend to be born to empowered, and sometimes dominant. Hello, I'm trying to know more about Moon in Cancer in Vedic astrology. Can this produce a strong character because Moon is in own sign? My grandmother has this (and Cancer sun, but Moon is not combust) and she has always seemed to me to be a strong person and not necessarily overly emotional or soft like a lot of people say about Cancer Moon. Whilst your Sun Sign describes qualities you are learning to develop and become, the Moon in Cancer describes who you already are. Born with the Moon in Cancer, you are likely to have an innate need to nurture, support and protect. Cancer is a Water sign, and so, pertains to the emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of life. You would be Cancer ascendant, if at the time of your birth, the sign Cancer was rising from above the ground, in a way similar to the rising of he sun. Natives that are Cancer ascendants, have Moon as their ruling planet. The inherent features of the Moon have a lasting impact on.

The significations and role of moon in an individual's life. It also includes the general description of moon's placement, conjunctions, aspects and many more.

Moon is considered as the most important planet in vedic astrology. This is because moon represents the most fundemental and basic aspects.The major significations of the moon are :

  • Our mind or what we think
  • Mother and relationship with mother
  • Emotions
  • Reactions or how we act
  • Care
  • Comfort zone
  • Happiness
  • Home life

Moon rules the sign of cancer which is the 4th zodiac sign and thus cancer is the own sign for moon. Moon gets exhalted in the sign of taurus and debilitated in the sign of scorpio. The planets that are friendly towards the Moon are jupiter, mars and sun while Venus and Saturn are inimical. Mercury is neutral towards moon. Moon's condition in a person's horoscope shows how that individual perceive things. Moon is how we think and react to to the world.
70-80% of how a person think can be judged by the sign and house placement of the moon in the birth chart. It's not the Sun's placement that shows how the person thinks and his/her personality. It is the moon because moon is the mind and sun is the soul. It is quite obvious that we think and make decisions from our mind and not from our soul. The way a person thinks and acts is very important as we get the results only through our actions. So to be successful in life, Moon's position is vital. Moon can influence the ability of relating to people and so a good Moon can give fame. It also signifies our mother and relationship with mother. So if a persons relationship with their mother is not very harmonious or if the mother is not very attached or passed away early in their childhood then the position of Moon could be weak in their birthchart or the 4th house could be afflicted as 4th house signifies mother. Moon is the karaka (significator) of the 4th house. The 4th house also represents vehicles, conveyances, happiness etc. Moon represents our capacity to be generous and caring. The care or nurturing a person gets in their life is also dependent on moon's condition. The element of Moon is water and it represents the fluids in our body which includes blood.

As far as the houses alone are concerned Moon does very well in the 4th house and its the strongest position. Moon does good also in the 5th, 9th, 10th and 11th houses. 6th and 8th house placements are not considered very good houses for the Moon to be in. If a person is born at the night time, it adds to the strength of that persons Moon as it gets more strong during the night time. Moon is the most soft planet and due to the same reason it gets greatly affected by conjunctions, aspects and planets sitting in 12th and 2nd houses from itself. There is only one aspect from the Moon and that is towards the 7th house from its position. The aspect throws a motherly influence filled with emotions and care towards the planet or house. If Moon is conjunct any planet, the thinking will be modified especially if the conjunctions are close. For example if Mars is conjunct with the moon within 10 degrees, then the qualities of mars like aggression, courage, straight forwardness etc will be a big part of that persons personality or character. When there are no planets placed in the 12th or 2nd from the Moon, it is called kemdrum dosh/yog and it is said to give poverty but in these times it is not applicable as there are many rich people with yoga. It just shows that the mind does not get much support or the person is lonely. This yog (combination) can also get cancelled in many ways. However, planets in the 2nd and 12th from the Moon can be of great help.

Moon also shows where our intrests or hobbies and where our mind is in all the time. For example, if a native has moon in the 8th house, that person might be intrested in or will want to know more about occult, astrology, hidden deep secrets, mystries etc. Moon can also be used as a seperate lagna and the planets can be judged from the moon's position. This will give indications from our mental prespective. However, it is better to use moon as lagna only if the moon is strong.

What Causes Migraine According To Astrology?

I had been hearing about Migraine for long time but never took time (seriously) to understand what actually migraine was.

Pushya is considered the lunar sign ( nakshatra) of the most mature spiritual nature. Why is this so?

It falls within the sign of Cancer which is the home of the Moon.


What happened when this science migrated out of northern India into the various cultures and finally to Greece, the fact that it is a lunar based system was lost. In fact, because it is a lunar based system, it means that the Moon is the most important planet in your chart.

Your Moon represents your brain. In order to perceive life experiences and channel the light through your being, your brain must be strong.

(Luckily there are upyas or remedies for weak planets. )

How life experience travels through your general perception – manas- and out through your chakras and eyes, is how your life will go. Those with a strong mind will be resilient and stable and , despite the normal setbacks of life, are able to maintain a positive attitude.

Those with a weak mind fall easier into depression and need tools to manage. The blessing that understanding your own karmic code/birth chart, brings is priceless in the navigation of your journey.

The Moon is also the Mother. Cancer relates to nurturing and care, not for ulterior motives, but for the sake of pure love.


There is such a sweetness to this cosmic frequency. All of you have some attachment to this frequency.

Check in to where you are brave enough to remain vulnerable and keep your heart open, even if it is sometimes hurt or broken. We have the ability to heal. Our main job in life is to look after our heart so that we may love.

This full moon is a time to be gentle with yourself and honor the softness that exists in your soul. Money luck for pisces today.

Reach out and give love to your mother or anybody that fills that role in your life. Honor your own role as a mother. As much as possible rest in this space so that you may radiate it out into the field and have it bounce back to create your projected reality. Now is good!



On the other side of this full moon, if you look you will see the Sun hemmed in between Saturn and Jupiter, with Venus just joining. We are in a tough place on earth currently. Many would say we are in a deep low point in Kali Yuga. Now more than ever it is important to meditate with others to strengthen the projection field of humanity. We are the ones who must turn it around.

Capricorn is governments. Until Saturn moves out of Capricorn in April 2023, it is likely we will be experiencing this battle with government. Imagine a world much more evolved that ours, where people take a much greater role in responsibility.

Where does Capricorn fall in your own chart? Here you will be challenged by this current transit.
