The moon is an important planet in Vedic astrology and is considered as queen in the planetary cabinet. The moon signifies our mind and emotions and thus can’t be overlooked. Moon is responsible for creating several good and bad yogas in Astrology bringing auspicious and inauspicious results respectively to the native. A malefic or negative Moon gives difficulties to mother, problems related to finance and property, school education, marriage, and peace of mind. The gemstone for the moon is pearl or moti and it rules the northwest direction. Moon doesn’t share inimical relations with any planet but Mercury treats the moon as its enemy. It brings varied results in different houses of the natal chart. No planet is bad in any house and the nature of results depends upon the planet's strength, its association with other planets, its placement in a particular sign etc.
The moon rules the fourth house of the natural zodiac and is the lord of sign Cancer in astrology. It gets exalted in Taurus and gets debilitated in the Scorpio. The planet symbolizes mind, water and water bodies, conception, infancy, mother, milk, peaceful state of mind and travel abroad, etc.
