The Moon is known as the Karaka or the significator of our mind and it controls our moods, senses, and emotions. Where the Moon is placed in your birth chart shows who you are as a person, what is your mental strength, what are your thoughts and vision, what is your mindset. The Moon is essentially your inner self, and that is why it is called the Mother in Vedic Astrology. It is what shapes us as a person, our personality and psyche, and the Moon like a Mother also protects and nurtures us. A good placement of Moon says that the person is mentally so strong as to withstand any problems in his/her life, and he/she may feel emotionally secure even if there are so many obstacles and challenges in his/her life.
