Moon in Swati

Moon in Swati – Moon in Libra

The classic say that one born with Moon in Swati will be mild, happy, compassionate, affable, eloquent, virtuous, will incur debts, live in foreign places, be hatefully disposed to his relatives, be simple in dress, and will have few sons. They will try to please Gods and Brahmins, devote himself to enjoyments, and will have much wealth but little intelligence. They will be expert and clever at trading activities (a merchant with principles), a celebrity of great order (or one who has much education), lustful but self-restrained and in control of their passions and desires (capable of bearing thirst), and charitable.

Moon in Libra: Bepin Behari say that the “Moon in Libra will induce greater movement towards the pleasures of life: at this stage, the psyche will struggle to have increasingly more and more intense experience of worldly pleasures. It becomes incapable of of learning spiritualising lessons from the earthly experiences. The tamasic proclivities will be greatly accentuated.”

Commentary: Comfortable with rhythms of trade, negotiation, diplomacy. Emotionally flexible, risky alliances. They are deal-makers, adaptable, kind and generous to others, sweet spoken, and spiritual. They will give much freedom to their partners but expect the same in return. They will often seek to negotiate their way through relationship problems rather than just go away. This leads them to be less than honest at times in order to please. They might promise more than they can deliver, or agree to things they don’t intend to follow thru with just to get some peace. There is always some room to manoeuvre with Swati. They like to please others; this might give them a certain magnetism that they cannot control. This is also a position of unusual alliances. They usually have a passion for the arts: singing, music, painting, dancing.

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.”
