Hence, it makes the native thirsty or longing for nutrition. It can indicate an increased thirst for food and drinks one positive light if Moon is in a favorable sign.

There is also stated that such natives are very critical, harsh, and easily irritated which influences their behavioral patterns negatively.

This effect is provided by the aspect of Moon upon the 6th house of disputes, quarrels, fights, disputes, and anger. At the same time, Moon rules the thinking patterns of the native which in this malefic house becomes negative and finds the output in the form of angry, critical, and quarrelsome behavior.

Furthermore, if Moon is associated with the natural malefic planet through aspect or conjunction, it indicates lots of expenses and waste of essential resources, such as wealth and food.

In addition to that, this also indicates gaining profits through immoral, unethical, or illegal activities. As Moon is a female planet, the side income can be related to women or products related to them.

Weakened Moon in the given house also puts these natives in danger to catch diseases through physical union with partners.

This effect is provided by various astrological indications. To begin with, the 12th house is related to sensuality and great bedroom pleasures. The positioning of gentle and affectionate Moon in this house extends the desire for affection and sensuality.

At the same time, Moon aspects the 6th house of health ailments, and when Moon is either weak or badly influenced by malefic planets, it indicates danger from health issues caused by excessive enjoyment of sensual pleasures. If Moon is in bad dignity, it indicates satisfying these desires through unethical and immoral ways.

In addition to that, badly dignified Moon in the given house also causes the natives to become badly dignified and embody negative traits that the 12th and 6th houses provide making them harsh, cruel, immoral, quarrelsome, hostile, etc.

It further leads them to the commitment of many sinful acts, especially against females, which can deprive these natives of salvation or Moksha. That is because the 12th house signifies salvation as being a member of the salvation triangle.

In Brihat Jataka and Phaladeepika, the same negative results are included as above.


In this classical source, the native results of an ill-placed and weak Moon are emphasized. Namely, this combination is said to make the native jealous, malicious, mean-spirited, and slothful.

In addition to that, such natives are troubled by hidden enemies who cause obstacles, obstructions, and losses to the native.

This effect is provided by the aspect upon the 6th house of enemies and opposition. The 12th is opposite to it which signifies hidden enemies.

It is important to note that if the Moon is well placed and strong in this house, the negative results will not manifest.

Chamatkara Chintamani

In this classical source, it is stated that such natives spend their resources and portion of wealth on charitable causes.

Expenses on charity are actually a positive side of the 12th house of expenses and losses on good causes. In fact, the 12th house is the natural domain of humble, compassionate, and kind Jupiter-ruled 12th zodiac sign Pisces.

Hence, a strong and well-placed Moon in this house makes the native charitable, kind, and compassionate from the mind which motivates them to perform various charitable acts.
