Significance of Moon in Horoscope and Remedies

The Moon is considered to be a softer planet in Astrology and represents mind, emotions, satisfaction, smell etc. It also governs watery diseases, common cold, cough etc. The Moon rules the zodiac sign of Cancer. The sign of exaltation of the Moon is Taurus and the sign of debilitation of the Moon is Scorpio. The Moon in Vedic astrology is called Chandra or Soma. Chandra means 'bright and shining' in Sanskrit. For those belonging to the Hindu Religion moon sign is more important than the sun sign. Chandra mahadasha lasts for ten years. The Moon is most comfortable and powerful in the 4th House. The Moon is particularly beneficial for the water sign Ascendants of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The gemstone of Moon is Moonstone and Pearls. The metal representing Moon is silver and direction is northwest. The day representing Moon is Monday. An afflicted Moon may mean personality disorders, difficulties in relating to other people and emotional disturbances. A strong Moon on the other hand means emotional maturity, responsibility, sensitivity, receptivity, caring for others and a nurturing attitude in life.

Chandrama, as a God, is fair and youthful in appearance. He is considered wise, peaceful and auspicious. He wears white and carries a mace in one hand and is seated on a lotus which is carried by a shining white chariot pulled by white horses.
