Just as the waxing and waning of the Moon affects the tides in the sea (which incidentally also affects our moods), in astrology the planet Moon influences the horoscope of a person by producing many favourable and unfavourable results. You might want to consider the use of remedies for the Moon to get positive outcomes.
In Vedic astrology, the Moon represents our psychological and emotional needs. The Moon is considered a benefic planet of the highest order, but a dark Moon is malefic. So, when the moon is afflicted, it affects our thoughts resulting in a wavering mind, lack of mental peace, lack of concentration and even dreaminess.
The Moon rules our emotions and our feelings. It denotes the mind, a motherly figure, friends, property, vehicles, as well as overall happiness. This planet basically represents how you view the world.
Day of the Week: Monday
God or Deity: Devi Gauri
Permanent Home: 4th House
Gemstone: Pearl (Moti)
Friendly Planets: Sun, Mars and Jupiter
Neutral Planets: Mercury
Enemy Planets: Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu
A positive Moon in the horoscope will result in the native possessing auspicious traits such as good memory, empathy and patience. It also makes the native perform well at work and make immense profits in business.
If the Moon is debilitated, the native will possess negative traits such as emotional instability, mood swings, worry, fear, restlessness, laziness and sleepiness.
The native with a weak Moon will suffer from a disturbed mind and wavering thoughts.
A weak Moon is also indicated by mental diseases such as depression, anxiety and more than one phobias. They are also not overly motivated towards work.
Such people would have had no motherly love during their childhood due to the mother dying or her staying away.
A weak Moon also results in allergy to milk and milk products.
Persons with a weak moon will always be irked by their neighbours.
Such people may not be able to express their emotions clearly or will conceal things, which will lead others to doubt them.
Health related issues such as blood pressure, muscle strain, palpitations may be present and the body may produce too much mucus. Hormonal imbalance, blood pressure, excessive dehydration are also other symptoms of a negative moon.
If the Moon in your birth chart is afflicted by a malefic planet, or is positioned in conjunction with its enemy sign, then you definitely need remedies for planet Moon. Below are some remedies for planet Moon in Vedic astrology, which can be very beneficial.
Never accept silver as a gift or donation.
Donate milk to a poor soul. Try donating white clothes or rice to underprivileged people.
A native with a weak Moon should fast on Mondays, eating once a day.
As pearls are the gemstone for the Moon, wearing a pearl set in silver or gold on the index finger on a Monday can remove negative energy from the native’s life. (Try this remedy only after consulting an expert astrologer.)
Placing peacock feathers in the house can help to improve the Moon.
Avoid having a big clock in your home.
Chant the Moon Beej (seed) mantra. Recite “Om Shram Shreem Shraum Chandraya Namah”. Chant this mantra regularly to work on the subtle consciousness to enhance your mental powers.
