Results of Moon in 6th House

Compassionate & Service Oriented

Moon in the 6th house produces a person who is sensitive and compassionate to others, who are injured, emotionally exhausted or traumatized, neglected, and victims of any other similar circumstance.

They make their priorities always secondary to the needs of those being served which makes them great healers and nurturers of people in need. Furthermore, their subconscious mind is preoccupied with thoughts and worries about others which causes mental stress and anxiety.

If Moon is well-placed and strong in the 6th house, it promotes becoming famous and reputed for the great above-mentioned characteristics.

Mental Stress

Moon in the 6th house of challenges puts the mind under constant pressure leaving no other choice than to become mentally strong and resistant over time.

Starting from childhood, one is forced to withstand opposition and conflicted situations which train the mind to become stable and strong in these difficult circumstances.

As a result, the mind (Moon) becomes aware of what is happening in the surroundings and how to respond quickly and strategically efficiently when necessary.

However, alertness compromises the peace and happiness of mind. Waxing or Full Moon helps to cope with the mental stress leading to auspicious outcomes such as a well-trained mind for demanding conditions.

If Moon is fallen or waning, it indicates having a negative mindset which makes it extremely difficult to resist various stressors leading to severe anxiety.

Health & Immunity

The 6th house is a malefic house where natural malefic planets function more effectively. However, Moon is a natural benefic planet which makes it hard to deal with the natural significances of the 6th house.

One of the major significances of the given house is health and resistance to various factors that damage it.

The condition of the Moon in the 6th house determines the vulnerability to various health threats. With that being said, if Moon is Waxing, Full, and well-placed it indicates having strong immunity and resistance to diseases both of which provide sound health.

If Moon is weak (Waning or Dark) and ill-placed it indicates various health issues related to Moon (mind) and 6th house (abdomen). Accordingly, a weak Moon in the considered house indicates mental stress, anxiety, and issues regarding digestion and related organs.

Gentle & Vulnerable

The 6th house represents opposition and challenges caused by enemies all of which take a great toll on the mind as Moon is directly in this unsuitable environment.

The gentle planet Moon in the given house indicates using gentle tactics in dealing with the opposition which is very ineffective, indeed.

Moon is also the planet of thinking patterns that influence the general behavior making it rather harsh in the given house.

Namely, as these natives experience lots of difficulties, they eventually become stressed and develop an unnecessary layer of protection.

This protective layer makes them seem very rude, harsh, and annoyed while they are actually not. They simply try to protect their gentle nature from intruders.

The considered combination also indicates being overly critical and argumentative which is another manifestation of insecurity.

That is to say, these natives might often feel bad about themselves for specific reasons. To attempt to solve this issue, they try to find something in others that is relatable and helps to heal.

You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Competent in Debates

Moon is a naturally beneficial planet, which has soft, gentle characteristics and the placement in a house of difficulties is not comfortable for such planets because of not having the necessary characteristics to fight the hardest battles in life.

As a result, such placement of gentle planet Moon in 6th house causes being lack of physical power, aggressiveness, passion, and resistance to battle the hardest obstacles.

However, if conditions allow, that is, if Moon is Waxing, Full, and/or well-placed in its favorable sign in the considered house it indicates developing strong emotional resistance to pressure with experiences.

These challenging experiences make one extremely competent in debates or battles where the strong cognitive power of the brain is crucial.

This favorable combination also indicates being victorious over enemies and saved from obstacles and opponents in life that are difficult to overcome.

Alternatively, if Moon is Waning, Dark, and/or ill-placed in the birth chart it indicates being deprived of emotional intelligence and confidence which causes being easily demotivated by obstacles as well as defeated and humiliated by enemies.

Ability to Gain Wealth

Classical Interpretation

Bhrigu Sutras

This combination causes the natives to struggle very hard to earn wealth, as per this classical source.

Such natives are likely to be involved in illegal relationships with members of the opposite gender.

Moreover, if the Moon is influenced by the natural malefic planet by aspect or conjunction, the negative effects are amplified. As a result, the native will become very hostile, aggressive, and inclined towards performing sinful deeds.

That is because Moon is the planet of mind and the positioning of it in the malefic 6th house influences the thinking patterns of the native in a way that makes the native aggressive and critical.

Furthermore, if Moon is also conjunct with Rahu or Ketu in the 6th house, it indicates that the native has to withstand a lot of pressure and obstacles caused by very dangerous and sinful enemies.

In addition to that, jealous and hostile enemies cause damage to the possessions of the natives with this combination which leads to loss of finances.

The native themselves develop a very quarrelsome and critically negative mindset which makes them fond of initiating quarrels and fights with others.

The water bodies, such as oceans, rivers, ponds, etc are dangerous for the native. It is because Moon represents fluids including water making this negative placed Moon in the 6th house very dangerous for the native regarding water and liquids.

In addition to that, weak or afflicted Moon in the given house causes weak immunity which makes them prone to catch health ailments easily.

Waning Moon in this house further extends the inauspicious results. If Moon is not well aspected or placed, it produces completely malefic results regarding the 6th house significances.

However, if Moon is either well placed, waxing, full, or conjunct with a natural benefic, it blesses with good immunity which protects from health issues. This also contributes to the overall health, durability, and strength of the body.
