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.
