As per Hindu astrology there are many types of doshas. We have tried to discuss about the different doshas like Shani dosha and how you can deal with them. In this particular article we will discuss about the Chandra dosha.
The Moon in Astrology
Chandra in Hindu astrology is moon. Moon plays a very crucial role in the horoscope. Chandra means something that is bright as per Sanskrit. Moon is very significant that is why in vedic astrology moon sigh is given more importance than the sun signs. The Hindu astrology is of the opinion that the moon sign will have a more significant affect in the life of the person rather than the sun sign.
Mind and Moon
The moon has a very close connection with the mind. The moon sigh thereby is an indicator of the fact what the mind of the person will actually be like. If a person has moon in the fourth house it is considered to be the best position. The moon plays a very important role if your moon sign is water sign for example Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio.
If moon is placed in a favourable position you will not have any problems. However, if the position of the moon in your horoscope is not fine then you will face a lot of problems and it is called the Chandra dosha.
Chandra Dosha Details
As moon controls the mind it is quite obvious that a misplaced moon in the horoscope can mean mental trouble. A person who has the Chandra dosha will suffer from depression and other mental problems. They tend to worry a lot and do not get along with people. These people come across as insensitive and rude to many.
Emotional maturity is very important in all aspect of life and that is what is controlled by the moon. The stone for moon is the moon stone. The day of moon is Monday. Even pearls are suggested to people who have Chandra dosha. People who have a strong moon have attractive personalities and they have the ability to deal with any problems with peace of mind.
The ones who do not have a strong moon get agitated quickly and are hot tempered. If Rahu is placed over moon then the will not have thinking power and will get agitated by small things and can even take to physical violence and self-destruction. Professions like a doctor, psychologists and healers need people who are sensitive and have a cool mind.
It is generally found that these professionals will have a strong moon. Women must have a good moon else they will not be able to become a good mother and wife. A mother has to have a cool mind to deal with the challenges of bringing up a child. Similarly the nature of a man is to lose temper easily if the woman in his life is not cool minded it can be a problem.
Sun makes a person aggressive and moon makes a person a people’s person. Everyone wants to have a peaceful life where they share a harmonious relationship with people around them. If you want a life where you care loved by all then you must try to deal with the Chandra dosha in an effective manner.
