Moon in Purva Phalguni

Moon in Purva Phalguni – Moon in Leo

“What is it that makes you want to write songs? In a way you want to stretch yourself into other people’s hearts. You want to plant yourself there, or at least get a resonance, where other people become a bigger instrument than the one you’re playing. It becomes almost an obsession to touch other people. To write a song that is remembered and taken to heart is a connection, a touching of bases. A thread that runs through all of us. A stab to the heart. Sometimes I think songwriting is about tightening the heartstrings as much as possible without bringing on a heart attack.”

— Keith Richards (Moon in Purva Phalguni conj. Jupiter in Magha 10th house)

The classics say that the native who has Moon in Purva Phalguni will be an affable speaker, liberal in gifts & donations, mean-minded (or depressed) but with pleasing manners. He will be burdened with varied expenses, have obedient servants, be famous, dear to the king or serving the government in one way or another, and will fear war. He will be restless, wandering, practicing evil, strong and longing for women, versed in the art of dance. He will be brilliant, discerning and skilful (The Classics: Hora Sara, Jataka Parijat, Sage Naradaa, Brihat Samhita, Varahamihira)

Bepin Behari say that the Moon in Leo “will pine for the understanding and premonitions, urges and messages and when received, it will endeavour to mould itself accordingly: at this level, the psyche under the influence of the Moon will like to be influenced by high forces (the Sun), than by the attractions and influences of the lower place of existence (the ascendant).”

The Moon Jupiter combination made Keith Richards very comfortable up on stage with so many adoring fans, and all those lights and the magic he was capable of making. His Purva Phalguni Moon is comfortable up there and he would be comfortable with the routine. He even turned down a chance at being Knighted to show appreciation to all his fans that have stood against everything that the Monarchy stands for.

They evolve to true chivalry, renaissance men or women who people gather around and look up too. They appreciate the literary beauty of life: poetry, music, dance, literature, the fine arts, all that appeals to the heart and speak the highest truths. At the same time they are often strong athletic beautiful people who will stand up for truth and justice despite all odds. Perfect specimens in the Pushkara pada 3. But they need to get the opportunity to make achievements in order to stand tall. They have to be prepared to tarnish their shiny suit.

Purva Phalguni Moons like to be in an atmosphere that brings together truth (the Sun) and beauty (Venus). Or at least with the moon here they are comfortable with the friction between these two things. What Leon Festinger, with his moon here, describes as cognitive dissonance. Many of the myths, great stories, and great art do this; they bend reality to get at a higher truth in the same way light refracts through a prism allowing us to see light in the rainbow rather than just the things illuminated by light (we cannot see the sun light itself unless it reflects or refracts off of something. How clear the light is from any individual’s chart will affect the truth they are reaching for and Venus will have much to say about the beauty they are capable of. In any case, they often will inspire others and are looked up to by others.

They can easily devolve into selfishness, egoism, taking everything personally and basically putting themselves in the centre of everything where they don’t belong. They need a lot of attention and they can seek to get this in the wrong ways. This is a very sexual nakshatra so many, like Madonna, might use this for attention. Especially if Mars and Venus are working together in the chart somehow.

This is where we get people working with a kind of sex tantra, worshiping the procreative act represented by the Shiva lingam. They seek to create something completely new by bringing opposites together and the way a man and woman come together to make a baby. But this isn’t just about sex, it’s about creativity in general coming from a mix of knowledge of rhythm and harmony that come from putting together different notes to create a whole song (a life) much greater then it’s parts; and luck, divine inspiration; everything just coming together at the right time and place. Ultimately they seek the source of beauty, or the truth through union. They ultimately seek non-dualism not just thru sex, but thru every relationship they have. This whole universe is made of relationships between subjects and objects so every mundane interaction we have in the course of the day becomes an opportunity to see yourselves in the other and realise that although the subject and object appear to be different, they are not. It’s like looking at the rainbow in reverse. All the colours appear to be separate and distinct, but in truth they are not; they are emitted from a single source.

Purva Phalguni lies on the visible light spectrum of electromagnetism. We can see, explain, illuminate less than half of the truth, most of it lies beyond our capacity. Purva Phalgunis will, however, try to express what cannot be expressed. This connection with the sun connects Punarvasu with the production of Vitamin D in the body which is stimulated by light in the visible spectrum.

Of course all of this brings light, vision, illumination and intelligence all to the forefront for these people. The refraction of light can be from shiny objects which they certainly like. The need opportunity to shine and be the centre of attention. They like all kinds of trophies, awards and titles. This may extend into their relationships where they seek a trophy wife or husband. They want to best, the most original the most unique and authentic partners, things, experiences. Many of the top Purva Phalguni people have literally been awarded knighthoods, the actors and musicians with this placement have top awards like Golden Globes, Academy Awards, Peoples Choice or Guild Appreciation awards.

They like awards ceremonies, weddings, and celebrations where everyone comes together for something greater than themselves. They need to remember those higher reasons for why they do what they do. They need to make sure they are acting as instruments of god and not just for their own selfish desires. Purva Phalguni’s are tasked with showing us that chivalry is still alive and well in this modern world.

In regards to health they should be aware of sexually transmitted diseases due to loose sexual habits which are common. Viruses like herpes in the mouth or genital areas are possible with affliction. Back problems are also common from sitting and laying around, they are prone to becoming lazy and do well with a muse to help inspire them. Vision problems and colour blindness are possible with afflictions here.

Without inspiration they often end up just laying around all day dreaming in a world with themselves as the centre of attention. They can also make dreams come true. Purva Phalguni is associated with things like Make a Wish Foundation.

These are the true creative artists of the zodiac. Like Keith Richards sys, they want to touch our hearts. And like Hulk Hogan or J.K. Rowling, children and adoring fans often look up to them. In any case, they are often someone you can look up to; an ideal for the rest of us to reach for; an inspiration like Madonna to so many young girls. They might not always be the best role model, but that’s none-the-less the role they have been given. Usually, with age, they will begin to realise the responsibility that goes with their position. It will always serve them well to be thankful to their fans, and all the people who work so hard build their podium and shine the spotlights. This kind of gentle gratitude also relates to the tantric side of this where we show our gratitude and celebrate the coming together of opposites. They could work in the marriage or dating industry and several others work in higher-end spa, wellness and lifestyle industries.

They often like children and they make really good teachers and caregivers capable of allowing those under them to dream big. They moon in comfort with the childlike wonder of the world that allows creation to happen. They may find themselves defending the rights of children to be children; to dream and be free.

They like to have an elevated platform: a stage, a podium, a soap box, or, in the old days, a horse (now any vehicle) that raises them up above others. They usually like the modern celebrity lifestyle; lots of crystal, glass, diamonds, shiny brushed metal and other things that reflect and refract light. They are often socialites into modern luxury, arts and entertainment, fashion, style and beauty. They like to have the best part, the most stylish and luxurious atmosphere. They usually maintain a devotion to the gods and the ancestors. They are romantic and may be sex symbols of sorts. They tend to have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for enjoyment & wealth. It’s said that they often burst onto the scene to make a name for themselves and then coast on that early success. They are often the ones who hold political or creative authority. “Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others.” They suffer from the cognitive dissonance between their own self-centerer need for attention and their desires for relationship and connection. This typically proves to be difficult since no one partner can possibly supply the praise, attention and validation needed by our Purva Phalguni brothers and sisters. This typically leads to a series of dramatic romantic partnerships followed by disappointment. These personal dramas usually have little effect on their base of adoring fans who they know will always be there to praise them. They can become diva characters; though Pushya can also give this. They are especially sensitive to feelings of isolation, abandonment and rejection.

Many Purva Phalguni people have been Knighted. Of course these are typically the top Purva Phalguni people, but lesser titles and awards are there to be won and great achievements of all kinds are there to be made. It’s really about the Purva Phalguni person getting praise and recognition for being a source of inspiration to others. The Purva Phalguni native then directs that light elsewhere, to some cause or back to the fans and people who are the actual source of inspiration. It’s a feedback loop that raises the person up which allows them to inspire more and more people who in turn raise him up.

J.K. Rowling was knighted by France and given the Order of the British Empire as an officer. William Henry Bragg was knighted. Horatio Nelson was Knighted in the Order of Bath. Dante Alighieri was a knight in the age of chivalry who made achievements in the 1289 Battle of Campaldino. Rajiv Gandhi received the Bharat Ratna; the highest civilian award. Georgia O’Keeffe won the Edward MacDowell Medal (1972), the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1977, and the )National Medal of Arts (1985). Many of the actors here have Academy Awards, Golden Globes, or other guild awards. I mentioned Keith Richards turning down an opportunity to be Knighted, which in a strange Catch 22 way only shows that he is a true knight.

Dante Alighieri (moon P. Phalguni, no aspects): Began his moon period just before he turned fifteen. He was already engaged to be married but deeply in love with someone else since his Sun-Moon period when he was just 9 years old. His mother had been dead for about 5 years already and he spent much of his youth dreaming of love and completing his studies. It was a time of “courtly love” with an emphasis on nobility and chivalry. He was just 24 years old when Moon Venus Mars dasha came along to give him some role in the Battle of Campaldino as a cavalryman. A real life knight in shining armour. Florence at that time was an important centre for craftsmanship and metal works. They specialised in weapons and armour. And it was the renaissance where they were desperately trying to bring more beauty into what had previously been seen as purely functional objects. It’s likely he distinguished himself in battle because in the following Moon Sun period he was established as an effective leader and tactician with Sun in Mrigasirsha. William Henry Bragg (moon Saturn conj. P. Phalguni, conj. Jupiter in U. Phalguni): 1915 Nobel Prize in Physics “for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays.” Knighted in 1920. Rudolf Steiner: Philosopher who sought to find a synthesis between science and spirituality.

Moon in Purva Phalguni Pada 1, Leo navamsha: Vargottama pada. Strong ego, opinionated, and have a strong sense of entitlement. Enjoyers of life and the drama of life. They may have many children or have many who look up to them. Leo pada gives extra ability to shine and they often have many good qualities that make them role models. They have very high ambitions that can carry them high in life. 

Moon in Purva Phalguni Pada 2, Virgo navamsha: They are usually calm, cool, grounded people, even in stressful situations. They are very hard workers who will continue to work even if sick or injured. The classics say they are unenthusiastic, sad and hate women. Perhaps this is merely because they are too cool. They may work with children in some way.. 

Moon in Purva Phalguni Pada 3, Libra navamsha: Pushkara pada. The moon here is rare. They get their power and wealth through promoting balance, harmony and love. They are usually very creative, original people with artistic talent; the classics specify architecture and sculpture, but obviously they can be great writers too. They are compassionate and love their relatives and like to be close with their family. They often become experts in many fields, renaissance men or rhode scholar types who have mastered every branch of learning. They are charitable and giving, have a cordial temperament, and complete their good work on time. They are perfect; always attractive to the opposite sex.

Moon in Purva Phalguni Pada 4, Scorpio navamsha: Moon’s debilitated navamsha. Power comes through diplomacy, in this 4th pada there are likely to be secret negotiations. They are always looking for funding and seeking to attract wealthy patrons. The classics call them beggars, sad, poor and jobless, they come ashamed with their hat in hand, but they are bold and will take the top position in any field; they develop enmity with many people, are mostly selfish and live for themselves despised by all. They may experience lots of jealousies, rivalries, and inter-office politics. But they can also sacrifice for the greater good and be relied on in intense situations. This is typically a more difficult pada for Purva Phalguni.

Moon in Purva Phalguni 1st house

Rules the 12th house for Leo 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: 12th lord in the 1st house: “The native will be spendthrift, weak constitution, will suffer phlegmatic conditions and be devoid of wealth and learning. Native is not disposed to greed or avarice.”

B.V. Raman: 12th lord in the 1st house: “The native will have a weak constitution and will be feeble-minded. He will, however, be handsome and sweet tongued. If it’s a common sign the native will generally be wandering about. If conjunct the 6th lord, the native will have a long life unless the 8th house is also afflicted. This can also indicate imprisonment or living abroad. If 12th & 1st lords exchange signs the native will be miser, hated by all and devoid of intelligence.”

Commentary: They are like ambassadors from a foreign country.

Moon in Purva Phalguni 2nd house

Rules the 1st house for Cancer ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in the 2nd will make one “rich, very learned, soft spoken, blessed with all worldly pleasures, but occasionally stammering.”

Jataka Bharnam: “Full moon in 2nd house brings prosperity, happiness, humility, progeny, good looks and wealth. Slim moon in 2nd causes the native to be a liar, penurious, has little intelligence, lacks foresight and has a narrow outlook on life. He cannot estimate his means, resources, or the situation in order to do anything or turn a profit.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 2nd house: “Will have a large family and enjoy much happiness. Money will be obtained through females. The financial position will be somewhat variable, will have a fair complexion. Dhundiraja says the native will be reserved and not much sociable, squint eyes and much admired.”

BPHS: 1st lord in the 2nd house: “The native will be gainful, learned, happy, good natures, religious minded, honourable with good qualities  and many wives. The native will be economic minded with profit giving commercial projects. He has marvellous foresight with great power of examination and observation. His inferences are capable of giving a far reaching result and his plans are successful.

B.V. Raman: 1st lord in the 2nd house: “There will be more gains, teased or worried by enemies, good character, respectable and generous hearted. Well aspected will allow him to gladly discharge his duties to kith and kin; and he will be ambition. He will possess prominent eyes and be blessed with forethought.”

Commentary: The moon here brings some extra roundness to the face, eyes and mouth. It softens the edges and contours of the face, which can often be a little sharp with Leo in the second house.

Moon in Purva Phalguni 3rd house

Rules the 2nd house for Gemini ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in 3rd supports “lascivious brothers, gives one strength but makes very miserly.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 3rd house “tends to make a person violent, given to pride, miserly, lacking intelligence, dependent on relatives, devoid of kindness but without fear. If Moon is full they will have vitality and vigour, an invisible desire to live, and strength to fight against disease. If a slim moon has malefic influence here, the native is stupid, insolent, impolite, making decisions without thinking.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 3rd house “Changes in occupation are common, fond of traveling and active minded. Wife will be fair. The native possesses good knowledge, but is rather indifferent to spiritual values of life. Subordinate to wife and attached to children. If moon is waning one will be cruel, miserable, impious and unscrupulous. An unfavourable position for peace of mind if afflicted.”

BPHS: 2nd lord in the 3rd house: “The native will be a man of valour, wise, virtuous, lustful and miserly if there are benefic influences. If influenced by malefic circumstance, the native will be heterodox. If conjunct the 3rd lord and with a malefic planet the native will have no fear of god. A malefic planet in the 3rd house depends more on ones own valour than on fate or god. Due to his courage he does not amass money but reinvests it in trade for expansion and development. For Aries ascendant the native maybe a multi-trader due to the multiplicity symbolised by Gemini.”

B.V. Raman: 2nd lord in the 3rd house: “Brave, intelligent, good-natured but deprived character. Atheistic tendencies will be rampant and they will becomes addicted to luxuries. Later in life he turns out to be a miser. If well-fortified he will be benefited by his sisters, by learning fine arts, music, dance. He will indulge in prorating Kshudra Devatas or evil spirits.”

Moon in Purva Phalguni 4th house

Rules the 3rd house for Taurus ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in 4th house makes a person “happy, enjoying sensual pleasures, liberal in gifted, having dependable friends, vehicles and fame.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 4th house “allows the native to gain from products of the water: fish, pearls, corals, conches, etc. they get happiness of agricultural land, wife, conveyance, son, etc. They are devoted to gods and brahmins.” “The native may inherit or succeed a kingdom, they will be happy when the people of their home are happy, but they will not be happy in childhood. They are popular in their home place but change residence, they have good health and the mother is long lived. They get the affection and cooperation of their mother, conveyance, cattle, mental peace and good health.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 4th house “Possesses house, deprives happiness from relatives; will be cheerful and contented; becomes important as a leader or a ruler; proud and somewhat quarrelsome. If the moon is also afflicted, there will be early separation from mother. Unless aspected by Jupiter, he will have a fondness for sensual pleasures.”

BPHS: 3rd lord in the 4th house: “The native will be happy wealthy and intelligent but will acquire a vicious wife. Debilitated Jupiter here can bring about the death of the native brother, cause trouble for the mother, disturb the marital life of the father, and bring about mental troubles for oneself. Mercury or Jupiter debilitated here can bring course cases involving immovable property; many cases for debilitated Mercury. For Cancer or Capricorn ascendant the native will be involved with the purchase and sale of properties in other cities than his own. Virgo and Pisces ascendants may suffer addiction due to the natives effort to study occult science.”

B.V. Raman: 3rd lord in the 4th house: “Life will be happy on the whole. He becomes rich and learned, but the wife will be cruel hearted and mean. When well-fortified while the lord of 9th and lagna are weak, his brother will survive him. He will have step brothers if the 9th lord is strong. When Mars is weak he will lose his lands and will have to live in others houses. Evil results will be minimised if the 3rd lord in beneficially disposed.”

Commentary: They often have a stay at home mother and they do the same for their own children and family. Can be very attached to their home place. If they go away, they will miss it. They like the steady rhythm of seasonal celebrations in the home. The women will have large mothers breasts. They will have some commercial house parties. They tend to be nationalistic, and will miss their home place even if they

Moon in Purva Phalguni 5th house

Rules the 4th house for Aries ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in the 5th house has “good sons, wisdom, a gentle gate and is a minister to the ruler.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 5th house “allows one to subdue their passions and senses, they may be an aesthetic, they are truthful, cheerful, full of wealth, progeny, comforts and happiness; they are of noble disposition.” “Strong Moon here gives a clear and pure mind, exceptional memory, ability to make clear and successful plans and investment. But if the Moon is weak here the effects may be reversed. If Moon is in a female sign they may worship Goddess Durga and be devoted to wife and children.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 5th house “Clarity of mind, happiness from children, acquisition of lands, gems, precious stones; opportunity to serve the state. The person will be straightforward, truthful, learned, gentlemanly, god-fearing, and devoid of enemies. Strong tendency for speculation. One of their children becomes famous.”

Moon in Purva Phalguni 6th house

Rules the 5th house for Pisces ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in 6th house “shortens ones life span. One is ignorant, suffers stomach ailments and has to face humiliation.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 6th house “makes the person suffer indigestion and gives them a tendency to be cruel, exceptionally lazy, severe, evil, given to anger and having many enemies.” “The native does not bear discipline put in him by anyone else and will not sleep until he subdues the opponent. This native will have poor relations with their mother and many enemies. They lack appetite and tend towards professions which demand less enterprise, have a fondness for litigation, a smaller family, and a weak body. They can be fierce and practical.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 6th house “Indicates balarishta: much ill-health in childhood. Affliction by Mars or Saturn bring curious or incurable disease and vengeful enemies. The moon strong denotes ability and success in subordinate positions. If 6th house is a fixed sign the person will suffer from stone in the bladder; he will be submissive to women; weak sexual connection and stomach troubles. Afflicted in common signs bring lung problems. He will have success as a caterer.”

BPHS: 5th lord in the 6th house: “The natives sons will be equal to his enemies, or [he] will die, or the native will acquire a son by adoption or purchase. Obstacles to producing a son may be the result of some disease. If there is additional malefic influence here the native will have no issues, and if a child is born it will not live for long. For Leo ascendant this effect is felt in a particularly cruel way.”

B.V. Raman: 5th lord in the 6th house: “If favourably disposed, one’s maternal uncle will be a famous man. The native will have enmity with his own sons. If afflicted no children will be born and he may have to adopt from is uncles line.”

Moon in Purva Phalguni 7th house

Narrow-minded but sociable, he will be energetic and successful in life. He hails from a good family if the moon is waxing and otherwise strong. He will suffer pain in the groin. He will be stingy. If Moon is waning he will always be quarrelling with enemies.”

BPHS: 6th lord in the 7th house: “The native will be devoid of happiness through wedlock, but will be famous, virtuous, honourable, adventurous and wealthy. Three will be constant tension, quarrelling and fighting with partners and married life can be hell. For Aries and Libra ascendant it is errors of the native himself that cause disharmony as he may deliberately stir up trouble due to the effort of 3rd lord.”

B.V. Raman: 6th lord in the 7th house: “Generally marries mothers brother or father’s sisters daughter. The maternal uncle lives in a far-off place or foreign country. Wife’s character will be doubtful. If afflicted they will either divorce early or the wife will die. If involved with hermaphrodite Rashi here or in navamsha he will have a sickly or barren wife.

Moon in Purva Phalguni 9th house

Rules the 8th house for Sagittarius ascendant.

Phala Deepika: Moon in 9th house  makes one “effluent, virtuous, blessed with children; he is victorious and all his enterprise is crowned with success from the outset.”

Jataka Bharnam: Moon in 9th house “endows the native with wife and sone, a fondness for Puranic literature and stories, and a desire to do auspicious deeds and go on pilgrimage.” “People, especially women will have a feeling of respect and reverence around such a person. If the 7th lord is involved they will become lovers and might marry into such a relationship. They become popular of their good deeds and philanthropic works. The native gains lands, conveyances, harmonious atmosphere in domestic life, physical pleasures and comforts. There are many rises and falls in their life.”

B.V. Raman: Moon in the 9th house: “The native will be fortunate and prosperous. He will have many sons, friends and kinsmen. He will be principled and generous minded. If Saturn, Mars, and Mercury aspect he will become a ruler. If Moon combines with Mars there could be a fatal injury to mother. If Venus conjoins Moon he may live an immoral life. He will act in league with his step-mother. Saturn with this Moon causes on e to suffer much. The native may build charitable institutions. He will acquire good immovable property and visit foreign countries.”

BPHS: 8th lord in the 9th house: “The native will be a betrayer of his religion and a heterodox. He will be the husband of a wicked wife and will steal the wealth of others. AS belief in his own religion is destroyed he comes to believe in gods of a lower order: ghosts, pishacha, jinx, etc. Once morality is lost is can be easy to steal from others. If Jupiter is debilitated the affliction against religion will be especial strong: atheist, heterodox despite being born from a brahmin or religious family. He will eat prohibited substances.” (The 5M’s are traditionally prohibited: 1. Meat, 2. Fish, 3. Wine, 4. Parched grain 5. Sexual intercourse)

B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 9th house: “If conjunct the 9th lord with malefic the native may lose the paternal property and misunderstanding with father will arise. If the Sun is also afflicted the father may die in periods of the 9th lord. If conjoined by benefics the native acquires fathers property and relations with him will be harmonious. If the 9th lord is weak, the native suffers all kinds of hardships, misery and unhappiness. His friends and kinsmen will desert him while his superiors will find fault with him. If the 8th lord falls in the 6th, 8th or 12th navamsha the evil results will be greatly reduced.”
