Moon is the planet of the fourth house, who is friendly to Sun and likewise spreading light in the night and trying to destroy the darkness of Saturn. It gives peace, and is pure like Ganges to cleanse the dirt of human life.

This planet is symbolic of mother. Moon tells about the love and affection of mother, father, entire family, land for farming, love, kindness, mental peace, and the person's nature, etc. Horse, boatman, mother, grandmother, old lady are symbolic of Moon. Rice, milk, white pearl, genuine pearl, treasury, white colour, cloth business, business related to sea, education, dishes prepared from milk and water are related to Moon.

Jupiter, Sun and Mars are its friendly planets and Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are inimical. These three inimical planets are evil too, but whenever they come to the fourth house, they give up their evil tendency.

Moon : Effects and Remedies

As explained in the preceding issue, the Sun is regarded as the generator of power that gives spirit and life to all planets, the Moon is considered to be the conductor of power lent by Sun and rules over the lives of the beings on this earth. Sun represents individuality, whereas Moon shows one's personality.

Moon governs over impregnation, conception, birth of a child and the animal instinct. She represents mother, mother's family, grandmother, old women, horse, navigation, agricultural land, Lord Shiva, love, kindness, mental peace, heart, services rendered for other's welfare and the 4th house.

The Moon's effect comes up in the 16th, 51st and 86th year of the native and similarly its 1st cycle falls in the 24th year, the 2nd in the 49th year and the 3rd cycle falls in the 94th year of the native. The Jupiter, Sun and Mars are Moon's friends, whereas Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are inimical to her. For her protection, the Moon sacrifices her friendly planets - Sun, Mars or Jupiter. Moon is the Lord of 4th house, stands exalted in the 2nd house of Taurus and becomes debilitated in the 8th house of Scorpio. The Moon provides very good results if placed in houses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 9 whereas the 6th, 8th, 10th, 11th and 12th houses are bad for the Moon. The death of a domestic milch animal or a horse, drying up of a person's well or pond, the loss of the senses of touching and feeling are the signs of moon turning malefic.

The placement of the Ketu in the 4th house causes Matri Rina i.e. mother's debt. In such a situation pieces of silver of equal weight and size be collected from every member of the family and the same should be thrown together into the running water of a river. Consequently all the ill effects would be warded off.

Moon in 1st House

In general, the 1st house belongs to Mars and Sun. When the moon is also placed therein, this house will come under the combined influences of the Mars, the Sun and the Moon i.e. all the 3 mutual friends will be treated as occupants of this house. The Sun and Mars will extend all friendly support to their natural friend Moon placed on the throne i.e. the ascendant house.

Such native will be soft-hearted and will inherit all the traits and qualities of his mother. He will be either the eldest brother or will certainly be treated so. As long as the native receives the blessings of his mother and keeps her happy, he will continue to rise and prosper in every way.

The things and the relatives as represented by Mercury, who is inimical to Moon, will prove harmful to the native, e.g., the sister-in-law and the green color will affect adversely. Hence it is better to keep away from them.

Burning milk (for making Khoya) or selling milk for profit would reduce or minimize the power of the Moon placed in the 1st house, which means that the native's life and property would be destroyed if he engages himself in such activities. Such a native should serve others with water and milk freely for long life and all round prosperity. Such a native will get a life of about 90 years and will be bestowed with honours and fame by the Govt.

1. Do not marry between the age of 24 and 27 years, i.e., marry either before 24 years of age or after 27 years of age.
2. Do not build a house out of your earnings between 24 and 27 years of age.
3. Keep away from the green colour and sister-in-law. Do not keep a silver pot or kettle with a snout (Toti) in it in the house.
4. Offer water to the roots of a Banyan tree whenever you can afford.
5. Insert copper nails on the four corners of your bed.
6. Whenever crossing a river, always throw coins in it for the welfare of your children.
7. Always keep a silver Thali in your house.
8. Use Silver pots for drinking water or milk and avoid the use of glassware for the same.

Moon in 2nd House

The results of the 2nd house, when Moon is placed therein, will be influenced by Jupiter, Venus and the Moon, because this is the Puckka Ghar, the permanent house of Jupiter and Venus is the lord of the second Rashi Taurus. The Moon gives very good results in this house, as it becomes very strong here because of the friendly support of Jupiter against Venus.

Such a native may not have sisters, but will certainly be having brothers. In case he doesn't have, his wife will certainly have brothers. He will certainly receive his due share in parental properties. Whatever be the planetary position otherwise, but the Moon here will ensure male offspring to the native.

The native will receive good education, which will add to his fortune. The Business associated with the things of the Moon will prove highly advantageous. He may be a reputed teacher also.

The Ketu placed in the 12th house will cause eclipse of the Moon here, which will deprive the native either of good education or of male children.

1. Temple within the native's house may deprive the native of male issue.
2. The things associated with the Moon, i.e., silver, rice, non-cemented floor of the house, the mother and old women and their blessings will prove very lucky for the native.
3. Offering green colour clothes to small girls continuously for 43 days.
4. Place the things associated with the Moon into the foundation of your house, e.g., a square piece of silver.

Moon in 3rd House

The results of the 3rd house, when the Moon is placed therein, will be influenced by the Mars, Mercury and Moon. Here the Moon proves highly beneficial to ensure a long life and great wealth or riches for the native.

If there are no planets in the 9th and 11th houses, then Mars and Venus will give good results to the native because of the Moon being in the 3rd house.

With the advancement of the native's education and learning, the economic condition of his father will deteriorate, but without affecting his education adversely. If Ketu's placing in the horoscope is auspicious and not harming the Moon in the 3rd, the education of the native will bear good fruits and prove advantageous in every manner.

If the Moon is malefic, it will cause great loss of wealth and money at the age of the malefic planet placed in the 9th house.

1. Offer in donation the things associated with the Moon, e.g., silver or rice, after the birth of a daughter and the things associated with the Sun e.g., wheat and jaggery when a son is born.

Obtain blessings of your mother or the elderly women by touching their feet. The 4th house is the river of income which will continue to increase expenditure. In other words, expenditure will augment income.

The native will be a reputed and honoured person with soft heart and all sorts of riches. He will inherit all the traits and qualities of his mother and will face the problems of life boldly like a lion. He will receive honour and favours from the government along with riches and will provide peace and shelter to others.

Good education will be ensured for the native. If Jupiter is placed in the 6th house and Moon in the 4th, parental profession will suit him. If a person has mortgaged certain valuables to the native, he will never come back to demand it.

If Moon be placed with 4 planets in the 4th house, the native will be economically very strong and wealthy. The male planets will help the native like sons and the female planets like daughters.

The native will adopt just and right means to earn wealth and will not yield to wrong doing. He may not do well in business but certainly receive favours and honours from the government. Anyone supported by him will win.

The Moon in the 5th house will give 5 sons if the Ketu is well placed and benefic even if the Moon is joined by malefic planets. By his education and learning the native will undertake several measures for others welfare, but the others will not do good to him.

If the Moon is placed in the 6th, 2nd, 4th, 8th and 12th houses it is auspicious. The native would enliven a dying person by putting a few drops of water in his mouth.

But if the Moon is malefic in the 6th house and Mercury is placed in the 2nd or 12th house, the native will have suicidal tendencies. Similarly, if the Moon is malefic and the Sun is placed in the 12th house, then the native or his wife or both will have severe eye defects and troubles.

Venus and Mercury combined together give the effects of the Sun. The 1st house aspects the 7th house.

The milk will act as poison if taken during night. If he is a medical practitioner, dry medicines administered by him to the patient will have a magical effect for cure.

Moon in 11th house

This house is strongly influenced by Jupiter and Saturn. Every planet placed in this house will destroy it's inimical planets and the things associated with them. In this way the Moon here will destroy its enemy Ketu's things, i.e., the sons of the native. Here the Moon will have to face the combined power of its enemies Saturn and Ketu, which will weaken the Moon. Now if Ketu is placed in the 4th house, the life of the native's mother will be endangered. The business associated with Mercury will also prove harmful. Starting house construction or purchase of a house on Saturdays will strengthen the Saturn (the Moon's enemy) which will prove disastrous for the native.

Hence the business and things associated with the house in which Mars is placed will provide highly beneficial effects. Similarly, the business and things associated with the houses where Mercury and Ketu are placed will be strongly damaged. The Moon in the 12th houses causes a general fear in the native's mind about numerous unforeseen troubles and dangers and thus destroys his sleep and peace of mind. Ketu in the 4th house will become weak and affect the native's son and mother very adversely.

Moon and it's remedies according to Lal Kitab

The Moon stands next to Sun in importance. No matter how heated up Sun is while giving an order, Moon executes it with a cool mind and desires to remain placed at the feet of Sun. Moon is influenced by Jupiter and increases a person's longevity. Moon reigns over the night. Rahu influences the early part of life, i.e. evening and Ketu affects the last part of night, i.e. early morning. Saturn takes care of the entire night.

House of Moon

Moon is the Lord of earth and wealth. There is most probably a well, a hand pump or a pond or running water near the boundary of the house or very close to the natal's house.

Lal Kitab Remedies for planet Moon

- Moon is related with silver. If sitting in any of the houses the Moon is afflicting: for example

- it is troubling mother and she is ill, 'Chandroma manaso jaatak'

- there is mental worry or weakness or there is lung-related disease or wealth is depreciating, float silver in the river as silver represents Moon. All of your trouble will flow off.

When Moon is afflicting:

1. The totaka is that put water or milk in a pot and keep it at the head post during sleeping in the night and pour it on a peepal tree in the morning.

2. Donation or separating the objects related with Moon such as water or milk water is good.

Moon is related with milk and water and lord Shiva has adorned it on his head. Hence Moon has direct relation with lord Shiva. Hence felicitation of Shiva (Rudrabhisheka) or chanting of Shiv Mahinm strotra is good when Moon is afflicting. Sprinkling with holy water on Shiva is excellent.

The native, whom Moon is afflicting sitting in ascendant and is proved to be conferring ill effect, should not sell milk. Milk signifies Moon and selling of milk means becoming bereft of the mercy of Moon. The native should spruce himself with natural water, rice and silver etc.

In the third house , one should mind the natural signs. If Moon positioned in house three is conferring ill effect, green clothes should be donated to maidens. The natural sign in the house number three is of Mercury. Keep in mind that the third sign of Gemini corresponds to Mercury which corresponds to green colour. Mercury also represents clothes. Thus the remedy is obvious if one minds the third sign.

If Moon is proving to be conferring ill effect on mother, do not use milk. Do not drink milk in the night. Offering milk free of cost is excellent. If Moon is conferring ill effect positioned in the tenth house, do not drink milk in the night. Otherwise ill effect rises. The reason that appears is that giving up or donation of the related objects that afflict the person happens to be beneficial. Their use confers ill effect.

If Moon, sitting in the eleventh house, is conferring ill effect, visit to Bhairav temple and offering milk is beneficial. Here Moon is in the eleventh house, the natural house of Aquarius sign, which is sign of Moon's enemy, Saturn. Hence donation of milk, the object of Moon, is recommended. Saturn, which is lord of Aquarius, is a form of Bhairav and that is why Bhairav temple is recommended.
