Creative Mother

Moon (Mother) in the 5th house indicates mother is intelligent, creative, self-centered, loving, and affectionate.

If Moon is Waxing, Full, and well-placed in its favorable sign (in own or sign of its exaltation) it indicates that mother holds a strong rank, reputation, fame, recognition, and position in society or in her field of activity.

Classical Interpretation

Bhrigu Sutras

According to Bhrigu Sutram, individuals with this combination are extremely devoted to worshipping God. In addition to that, they are well versed in spiritual knowledge.

That is because the 5th house belongs to the triangle of righteousness in which the placement of the Moon directs the mindset and intelligence towards spiritual practices, if well placed.

Such natives are charming but tend to be impulsive in their way of expression. That is, their style of expression is dependent on their mood and emotions, which are fluctuating as per the natural nature of the Moon. Hence, they are prone to become at times quick-tempered and let their emotions control themselves.

If the Moon is well placed and in good dignity, then the impulsive expression directs them towards favorable outcomes. That is, they know and feel what is right and stand for it.

It is also mentioned that these natives are blessed with ample wealth gains, especially regarding the landed property. That effect is provided by the fact that Moon in the 5th house is in 2nd from its Swabhava or the house it naturally represents. Herein the 2nd is wealth and asset of the 4th. Hence, this is how this position can provide health through 4th house matters.

As the 5th house is a highly spiritual house, the positioning of Moon her makes them Satvik in nature. That is, it makes them inherently very spiritual, truthful, and righteous.

Such natives will be very grateful for their ample gains and remain working hard to maintain and grow their assets.

They are likely to have more daughters than sons. The reason for that is that the 5th house signifies progeny and Moon is a female planet. Hence, it promotes having female offspring. Additional results are determined by the incoming aspects, conjunctions, as well as the condition of the 5th house ruler.

If Moon is influenced by a natural benefic planet (Mercury, Jupiter Venus), the native is inclined towards doing good deeds for others.

On the other hand, if Moon is not in good dignity, that is, ill-placed it provides a lot of mental stress, anxiety, and worries.

It also indicates that the native is not that devoted to ethics and morals which deprives them of righteous and pious deeds.

In this classical source, a lot of importance is also given to the phase of Moon.

Namely, if waxing or full Moon is in the 5thhouse, the auspicious results are highly increased. As a result of this, the native is extremely caring, humble, and truthful and loves to help and feed others.

They are also able to achieve an authoritative position as they carry a strong mind which is authoritative. They are also very glorious with their qualities and many pious deeds which makes them admired by the community of intelligent people.

Such a native is very intelligent which in combination with their pious qualities enables them to prosper in life.

In addition to that, such natives remain humble even when achieving high authority and becoming wealthy. While they enjoy all the worldly success and prosperity, these natives are able to remain truthful and righteous, as the strong Moon in the spiritual 5th house suggests.

In other words, they don’t let themselves be controlled by materialism. Instead, they control material with full responsibility and dignity.


In Saravali, it is mentioned that such natives are intelligent, wise, and well educated. They are very sociable and thus have a large friend circle. They are glorious and splendid. They will have wise and smart children.

In Brihat Jataka, the same thing is mentioned about children.

In Phaladeepika, the same positive results are mentioned as in Bhrigu Sutras. They are said to be very effective and talented ministers or managers.

Chamatkara Chintamani

References to The Last Word of God are included not to mix Sunnah Kitab or Quran with worldly science, but to offer the best cure for worldly issues. Always know that this science and the latest religious revelations are separated from each other for more than 5000 years. If you were to evolve from old Vedic science and adopt the latest religious teaching, the leap is worth more than 5000 years of human evolution. I am currently conducting theological updates on all articles, hence some errors may be there. All credit for increased wisdom goes to the best & brightest man who ever walked on Earth who is no other than the Greatest Blessing For Humanity & Seal of Prophets Muhammad ﷺ, and people who kindly taught me the Word of God. All glory to God Almighty.
