In Vedic Astrology, especially during the earlier times, people who left their home country were deemed to be or seen as unlucky. Leaving one’s home country was equivalent to committing a sin and the person was also seen to be cursed.
However, today, settling abroad is basically a dream for many people and students and having yogas that take a person to a foreign land is a blessing in disguise.
Therefore, In this article, we will specifically talk about foreign settlement. Especially for people who have Moon in the 12th house.
Moon in the 12th house
Moon represents our mind, emotions, and imagination. Firstly, Moon in the 12th house makes a person very sensitive and emotional. Because if Mind is connected with the 12th house, the 12th house is the house of expenditure therefore, here there will drainage or too much expenditure of emotions and mental energy for the person. The person may unnecessarily over-think, use his mind a lot, and generally, such people think a lot. Most of their time goes into thinking about different things. Therefore, here, it is very important for the Moon to not be in bi-polar degrees such as 1 to 5 degrees or 25 to 30 degrees. If this becomes the case, the person’s emotions will be out of control and he/she may not be able to control his emotions.
It is actually important to understand the moon before we actually dive into why Moon in the 12th house is actually great for foreign settlement.
You see, Moon in the 12th house can really expand our imagination abilities. People who have Moon in the 12th house may possess such a powerful mind and imagination level that they can become some of the great writers, philosophers, thinkers, crafters and so on.

Moon in the 12th house Foreign Settlement
You see, Moon is the planet of travel. Moon is one of the main Karaka of travel in Vedic Astrology. Even in palmistry, the Moon’s Mount on our palm represents traveling to far places. Therefore, there is no doubt, Moon in the 12th house will definitely make the person travel a lot.
This could be traveling for work purposes, spirituality, and self-development. When it comes to foreign settlement, there is a very high chance for people with Moon in the 12th house to settle abroad.
This is not because the person’s fate makes him go abroad but it is basically, the person will naturally desire to go away from his homeland. This is due to the person itself.
The native having Moon in the 12th house may feel really isolated, alone, lonely, and having emotional turbulences all the time. Because of this the native will naturally want to travel and seek freedom in life.
Now, the problem is most people in the world do not seek spirituality and Moksha. Because the world is a very practical world and in order to survive, one needs to go to work, get a job or start a business. In this case, if you have Moon in the 12th house, it can be really hard to just live a normal daily life because of high mental energy. Your mental energy will be so high that it could cause disturbances while you work, or live your daily life.
The best thing for people with Moon in the 12th house is of course taking the path of Meditation. Learning to control one’s mind because Moon in the 12th house is actually a blessing from God itself for spirituality. However, if the person travels a lot, goes to different places, and visits a lot of places and countries in the world, it will be good for the person as Moon will be controlled in his birth chart. Moreover, if the person tries to go abroad and settle abroad, it could be the best remedy for Moon in the 12th house.
Such people should always go for pilgrimages at least once a year and they should pray to Lord Shiva every Monday and offer Milk to him.
Therefore, according to Vedic astrology itself, Moon in the 12th house is the best Yoga for foreign settlement.
However, additionally, if you are not getting any chances of going abroad, there could be some additional Yogas that are not favoring you. Here is a list of possible Yogas that can assure you that you will most definitely settle abroad if you have these yogas along with Moon in the 12th house.

Moreover, if the 9th house and 8th house makes a connection with the 12th house, then this is also a very strong Yoga for foreign settlement. The person here work hards and struggles to go to a foreign land.
