Exaltation of moon

Post by Nora » 02 Jul 2019

Dear all

Please share your thoughts on the following

Why does Moon exalt in Taurus (Venusian sign)? Isn’t moon supposed to exalt in a spiritual sign? It’s almost as if the moon loves the luxury and beauty offered by Venus. What is the logic?

Kind regards

Nora

When we think of moon as a graha, first few words that come to our mind are emotions, mother, nourish etc. It is a very delicate and soft graha and in its highest form it is sattvic.
But in practical astrology it is very LUSTFUL and WOBBLY. Just read about story of moon god Soma, how he kidnapped wife of brihaspati.
It is energy of lust and unsatisfied hunger.
Thats why it is exalted in material sign of Taurus, in Rohini Nakshatra which is ruled by moon itself!

Venus is not representing libido. When un afflicted, Venus is a natural benefic. It is a must for all in unafflicted form. Mars,Saturn,Rahu and Ketu are natural malefics. Mars is the libido for both men and women. Moon debilitates in Scorpio which is lorded by Ketu and Mars. Taurus is the second house in zodiac.

In 4th house,Jupiter gets exalted.He is 9th and 12th lord. Dharma and its end-moksha is at the peak when behaviour is right. Karma involves doing unpleasant things also.So he is debilitating at 10th house.

Mercury is exalting in 6th.It denotes relatives as well.It debilitates at 12th. They consume wealth.

Saturn is exalting in 7th.It is the 10th lord. He denotes service and 7th denotes PR. Public relationship activities at its best. It will be diminished if the native is self centred denoted by debilitation at Aries,the first house.

Venus is exalted at 12th- to spend the wealth in dharma and bhoga without arguments - a debilitating Mercury.He is assuming debilitation when logic predominates by exalted Mercury with other factors.

Mars , the self is exalted at 10th- where he is doing karma and self is ruined if yields to comforts at 4th house in Cancer.

@sathis
I read some of your querries.
Writing answers to questions like why Moon is white or Mars is red is not going to help anyone. That is my view and it was shared in that answer. If you are still interested in finding an answer, please let me know.

But Moon in tenth can be detrimental to a native if it falls in vainashika.We have to be careful in ascertaining our correct birth times to avoid assess the chart. What is seen from your chart is the birth time you gave doesn't seem to be correct. It makes the Moon in vainashika.

Your birth time should have been around 12.40 am. Then your Moon goes out of this dangerous placement. But gandanta of lagna arises with this timing at Ashlesha 3. Ashlesha is related to naga devata. If this time is correct, you should go for a remedy since Ashlesha is one of the 6 deadly constellations of gandanta.

In case if you are not sure about the correct birth time, get it rectified by some professional vedic astrologer.

It is the count from lagna star/Moon star to the planet disposited star. There are two views -it is 22nd or 23rd star. Such a placement can bring troubles automatically out of no where. One has to be cautious about this placement as we usually think any planet in 10th house is good.
There is a provision in jhora to check nadis from SBC Chakra also. Sometimes the count may vary here. Better to count physically using some excel sheet. That is a fool proof method till one gets mastery over the subject.

@Left eye. What’s your view on Jupiter joining Saturn for a few months this year and in 2021 full year? Jupiter gets debilitated in Capricorn and Saturn is in the comfort of his own home. Is there some possibility of a Neechabang for Jupiter?

@Nora
During 2020-21 entry of Jupiter into Capricorn may not be much harmful for fresh births in that period as it is getting neechabanga due to Saturn’s presence. Saturn –Jupiter is better than Rahu-Jupiter. Transits may not contribute drastic changes in a personal chart. It will either tend to support or oppose the on going periods based on the natal dasa periods. Some unforeseen changes or failure of expected results may be due to number of other factors starting from natal navamsa count to contribution of outer planets. In some complicated disharmonious marriages Chiron and Pluto do play decisive roles. Fixing Chiron in a vedic chart is bit difficult –to get the location from Sayana(tropical) setting and converting it into nirayana position.

We don’t follow declinations of planets both in natal and transits. Declinations need more study. Some stock market softwares have this facility,I understand. Planets misbehave at extreme declinations is a little known theory as you may be aware of. They will be in standstill for few days during the reversal. The cash planets like Mercury,Jupiter and Venus are much analysed using these software. The projected results are mapped as a theory-say for example-if Mercury is in retro, stocks will be in the clutches of a bear run. Mercury rules over the following sectors of the Stock Market : – Telecommunication – FMCG – Textile – IT – Insurance – Publication – Aviation – Education Sector – Banking and Financial Sector Mercury has the affinity to the following commodities and metals of the market : – Peppermint – Emerald – Agro Products – Food grains – Paper – News Print – Cotton.

Transits are more applicable in Mundane astrology. We recently had a solar eclipse in Saggitarius. That will pose problems in countries represented by Capricorn Zodiac in prisons, hospitals, spies, secret enemies, crime and criminals. Though it is a normal happening to expect problems for any country in these counters, it will be on the excess in countries of Capricorn zodiac. Countries represented by Aquarius will have problems in the allies of the country, institutions of the government such as local governments, senates, and other legislative bodies-as Sagittarius is the 11th house to Aquarius.

Countries Bulgaria, Mexico, UK, Albania, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Lithuania, and India are represented by Capricorn and Aquarius represent Iran, Russia, Sweden, Syria and Ethiopia.

The Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn with Jupiter deserves attention. When Mars joins the party in the final week of March-say around 30th there things will be destructive for USA whose 7th house is Capricorn.
Countries Bulgaria, Mexico, UK, Albania, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Lithuania, and India are represented by Capricorn and the conjunction happening in first house is detrimental to the public.
The Planets in mundane govern the following aspects:
The Sun– Head of state.
The Moon– The people, public opinion.
Mercury– Communication and transportation. Younger people and teachers.
Venus– Arts, entertainment, younger women, glamour, financial spending.
Mars– War, military, police, militants, conflict.
Jupiter– Clergy, high courts, brings favor wherever it falls in the chart if well aspected.
Saturn– The elderly, mines, conservatism. Reduces advantage of the house it falls in.
Uranus- Technology, outer space programs, unruly events, wild changes in weather.
Neptune– Socialism and programs related to the well being of the less advantaged. Drug companies and drug problems in the population.
Pluto– Nuclear power, upheaval of governments, terrorism, lone terrorist attacks, mafia and drug lords.

Namaste left eye,

I have lagna in uttarabhadra and moon in poorvashada. Poorvashada is 22nd from lagna nakshatra. From the moon’s nak I don’t have any planets in 22nd/23rd nakshatra.

Kindly suggest upay. Plus moon aspected by saturn. Life long Sade sati. So far haven’t succeeded in any endeavors the way I wanted to.

Strangely both my other 2 siblings have 100% moon aspected by saturn and moon is debilitated in navamsha!

Best regards,

Namaste justchill,
That is Vainashika.Moon in Purvashada is horrible for their close relatives and friends and this statement is my own finding . Why? Two of my coborns and wife belong to this janma nakshatra :lol: . They just keep on going crushing others treating them as non-entites :D . But the star of lagna U.Bha brings in a good amount of emotional control.

You should increase the strength of your lagna. Worshiping Saturn as a planet. As Moon is your 5th lord, Moon is also to be worshipped. Sun is the natural atma karaka. Uttara bhadrapada is blessed by Lakshmi. All put together,Lakshmi Narayana worship and Surya Narayana worship will do good for you.

You seem to have chatru upada-as Lord of lagna has established a connection with 6th house ,badakesh and Mars. Totally forgotten kula devata -as Rahu is in 12th to your Atmakaraka Moon.

The Deity of Uttara Bhadrapada is Ahir Bhudnyana Serpent of the deep sea. Ahir Bhudnyana is an auspicious serpent or naga that is associated with part of Lord Shiva’s army, which reflects the warrior nature of this lunar mansion. Uttara Bhadrapada has a human, or manushya temperament with a primary motivation of kama, or healthy pleasures. As these people evolve they can become completely detached from all forms of materialistic desire and pursue spiritual life. This Nakshatra represents fertility and kundalini power energy. People have curios and good psychic ability. Because of Saturn and Jupiter influence of this Nakshatra these people generally have priest like quality that reflect their spiritual growth in life. These people are generally happy, cheerful, charitable, generous and wealthy.
A woman born with Uttara Bhadrapada as her birth star is considered blessed by the goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity and luxury. The animal symbol is the sacred female cow of India. Uttara Bhadrapada women said to be ‘’gem of her family. ’’ these are affectionate, generous and is a good helper in bad circumstances. Her nature is forgiving. She is careful in any work she undertakes. She never indulges in silly or irrelevant discussions and will always answer straight to the point.
