The Effects of the Moon in Different Signs
By Kavita Chhibber
The relationship between planets, the signs and the houses they are positioned in and how they aspect each other plays an important part in determining a person’s mental and psychological make up and which aspects of his/her life will be affected adversely or positively.
Astrologers divide the month in to two fortnights-the bright half when the Moon is waxing and the dark half when it is on the wane. The lustrous Moon is considered strong and auspicious, the waning Moon is considered weak and evil. Moon absorbs the qualities of other planets very easily and so the results of its effects in different signs will be modified by other planets joined or aspecting Moon in that sign.
