Moon, which moves from one sign to another in 2.25 days, is considered to be one of the most auspicious planets in Vedic Astrology. It governs the water and the Cancer Sign. Given that the average human body is 70% water, the moon has a significantly greater impact on us than any other planet. When it is positioned in Taurus, its exalted sign, it becomes strong, and when it is positioned in Scorpio, its debilitated sign, it becomes weak.
If the Moon is strong in your birth chart, it endows the native with an attractive face, quick thinking and inventiveness, sensitivity, strong mental stability, upbeat outlook on life, fascinating and appealing personality, and the capacity to cope and make sensible decisions even in the harshest circumstances.
On the other hand, mental anguish results from a weak Moon in your birth chart. The native is prone to Beri-Beri, cough, cold, digestive abnormalities, illnesses, hysteria, Cancer, Typhoid, Hydrocele, Dyspepsia, Asthma, Gastric Issues, Dropsy, Tumours, Peritonitis, Uraemia, Throat Issues, and many more.
