Moon in Hasta

Moon in Hasta  – Moon in Virgo

“I’m not a man who constantly thinks up jokes. But I think it’s very important to be able to see the funny side of life and its joyful dimension and not to take everything too tragically. I’d also say it’s necessary for my ministry. A writer once said that angels can fly because they don’t take themselves too seriously. Maybe we could also fly a bit if we didn’t think we were so important.”

— Pope Benedict XVI —

The classics say that one born in with Moon in Hasta will be sensually disposed, enthusiastic, clever, good in speaking, but disposed to thievery. He will be rich and be intent on living in foreign places. He will show enthusiasm in war, at which he will be an expert and will destroy enemies. The native will be industrious, devoted to love & virtue, valorous but addicted to females, and will serve others. He will befriend the learned and live in opulence. They have active habits and many resources they can draw upon. They are energetic, daring, shameless, merciless, a drunkard and thief. (The Classics: Varahamihira, Brihat Samhita, Sage Narada, Hora Sara, Jataka Parijata.)

Moon in Virgo: Bepin Behari say that the Moon in Virgo “makes the psyche susceptible to influences of earthly life and involved in pleasures derived from sensual gratifications. It will be almost shut against admonitions coming from the higher plane.”

The dual nature promised by Virgo is found in Hasta through the relationship between Sun (ruling deity) & Moon (ruling planet). On one hand they are strong, daring, protective or guardian figures; while on the other hand they are lighthearted, practical-joking parental figures. They are usually community minded and like being with family and friends. They might seek out roles that allow them to serve and protect, healing, healthcare, and wellness. They are servants and fixers. They can be a little suspicious and untrusting, possibly because they are themselves known for their trickery which can lead to theft. They usually have good dexterity and coordination of mind; of body; between the hand and the eye. It can be a good place for Hatha Yoga, gymnastics, wrestling; mental gymnastics, wrestling with problems.

If the Moon is afflicted and poorly placed these Hasta folks can be cruel, lying, cheating, thieving, employing trickery to make a living; addicted to wine and women; always chasing after the opposite sex and often taking advantage or their relatively innocent looks. They can be emotional and easily triggered bringing, which causes them to become insolent and heartless. They are usually comforted by a little handi-work, fixing or crafting things, offering protection and shelter to the less fortunate.

“We can fall, but in the end we fall into God’s hands, and God’s hands are good hands.”

— Pope Benedict XVI —

“If we take the Lord’s hand and let ourselves be guided by him, the path we take will be right and good.”

— Pope Benedict XVI —

Tall and stout, calm nature, smiling, The moon here makes them a comforting parental figure who gives no real reason anyone can leave them. He gets respect and honour from society and will sacrifice his life for others. He is always ready to help others. Despite all this they get a lot of criticism and opposition. They can be plebeians who don’t like posh living even if they do have money. The Moon rulership of Hasta also brings many ups and downs in life, Hasta placements can be very sensitive to what is going on in the world. For all their sincerity and hard work, they often end up with medium success. They do, however, tend to work at fairly high level careers in business or industry; tradesmen or craftsmen; social services or health care; military or war. They can be vengeful; but can learn to leave the revenge to god and withdraw from conflict. They are quick to intervene in disputes and give good advice. They typically have really good all around knowledge and will take on many responsibilities.

Females with this can be argumentative and outspoken (usually a more difficult trait in women). Curbing this tendency will be to her benefit as she often does not think of the consequences of what she is saying. Express themselves shyly (like a virgin/Virgo). Often unemployed due to support from family or husband, they make good housewives and find comfort in habitual movements of house chores and taking care of the family. They tend towards plumpness and a soft body. If they are born into a very poor family she may go into agriculture or the construction trades.

Rules the 11th house for Virgo ascendant.

Phala Deepika: “Waxing moon in 1st house provides and strong body and long life, power, wealth and freedom from fear.” Waning moon in 1st house is “just the opposite.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in the 1st house “with malefic influence causes the native to lack restraint and do base and evil deeds, they may be deaf or dumb, disabled.” Malefic influences will have a powerful effect on both moon and ascendant when the moon is here as there is no secondary ascendant to defuse some of the affliction, so even minor afflictions may be acutely felt.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 1st house: “The native becomes fanciful and romantic, a moderate eater. Considerable restlessness is usually tempered by an easy-going disposition. The fortune is generally changing. It makes one an idealist, a great traveller and explore. If conjunct Saturn, the mind will always be worried. If with Mars, women will suffer mensural disorders. Sociability tends to be a strong feature. He will be successful in professions that bring him in contact with the masses. Conjunct Rahu can give hysterical tendencies. Conjunct Jupiter elevates the mind.”

BPHS: 11th lord in the 1st house: “The native will have a sattvic nature, be rich, happy, even sighted, a poet, eloquent in speech, and always endowed with gains.”

B.V. Raman: 11th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be born into a rich family and he will earn much wealth. The strength of this planet will relate with the level of family wealth: very rich, fairly rich or merely well-to-do. He will lose an elder brother later in life.”

His eyesight will be poor and his family life will be marked by lack of harmony. If the 12th lord is benefic and in dignity these losses will be greatly reduced and the native can achieve financial stability. He will be a tactful speaker. If the 12th lord is badly disposed the native indulges in gossip and quarrelling.”

Moon in Hasta 12th house

Rules the 10th house for Libra ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in the 12th “native is odious to others, miserable, humiliated and indolent.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 12th house “person does not show good conduct or character, has no friends, suffers from eye disease, is of angry deposition, ands has many enemies.” “This native is emotional, sentimental, very imaginative and seeks imaginary happiness. He leaves his native area to live somewhere else.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 12th house: “The native may suffer some deformity. He will be narrow-minded, heard-hearted and mischievous. He prefers to lead an obscure life in solitude. Eye-sight will be weak. If the moon is waning and combines with Saturn sloth and lethargy will result.”

BPHS: 10th lord in the 12th house: “The native will spend in royal courts, or for the government, will have fear from enemies and be worried despite being skilful. Trouble from authority. This is especially the case for Scorpio ascendant.”

B.V. Raman: 10th lord in the 12th house: “The native will have to work in far off places. He will lack comforts and face many difficulties in life. If beneficially disposed the native becomes a spiritual seeker. If afflicted by malefic he will be separated from his family and wander about without success. He may indulge in smuggling and other nefarious activities. Rahu afflicting the 10th lord will make his a cheat and a criminal. He causes sorrow to his family and relatives.”

Commentary: Their work typically takes place in the studio or workshop, which is also where they go to get away from it all. They can be heavy drinkers or drug users who live in a fantasy land. They might be bipolar or perhaps clairvoyant. In one way or another they find their imagination and nightlife populated by all the unruly mythical beasts.
