Amongst the twelve ascendants, Chandra is known to give favourable results to the seven, namely, Mesha, Kataka, Simha, Tula, Vrischik, Dhanus and Meena.

As he happens to be the owner of 4th house for Mesha, when he is in the 4th house he also attains digbala(directional strength) giving him a double power. Natives born in Mesha rasi with this arrangement, will gain benefits during Chandra dasa with respect to house, vehicle, mother and education.

As Chandra is the significator of mother, natives born with strong Chandra would shower lots of love on their mothers. Especially, natives born with Chandra either in Kataka ,its own house or  Rishaba, in its uccha(exaltation)position or in Vrischik, when in neechabanga(neutralization of debilitation) are immensely attached to their mothers and display lots of love and devotion.

As he happens to be the lagnadhipathi(ascendant lord) for Kataka ascendants, when in own house, uccha(exaltation), Kendra(angular), Kona(trinal)positions he wouldl bestow beneficial effects to the natives during his dasa. In this arrangement, the status and reputation of the natives gets higher during the dasa of Chandra. Chandra sitting in Poosam(Pushyam) star owned by Sani, gives an added benefit of involvement in spirituality.

As Chandra is the owner of 12th house for Simha, the house indicating spending and travel, when placed in this house and during his dasa the native would be made to travel offshore to countries abroad and would bestow good livelihood through that.

As Chandra happens to own the 10th house or in other words is the karmadhipathi(significator for profession) for natives born with Tula ascendant, when other planets are also in subha(beneficial)position, the native would become an enterpreneur. He would be instrumental in giving gains in tune of crores of rupees through liquids. Most of the liquor barons have been born  with ascendant in Tula and have been able to climb up the ladder due to Chandra.

At the same time, Chandra attaining uccha(exaltation) does not benefit the natives with Simha and Tula ascendants. As uccha(exaltation) for Simha would mean that he would occupy the 10th house and as he happens to be the 12th lord  or significator for loss, this will lead to loss of career.

Also for Tula, he being the 10th lord or karmadhipathi(significator of profession), when attaining uccha(exaltation) would mean that he gets hidden in 8th place and since it means that there is no career when  karmadhipathi is affected, this arrangement also does not offer good results.

While being the bhagyadhipathi( significator for good luck) for natives with Vrsichik ascendants, as he also happens to be the badakadhipathi(significator of obstruction), a waxing Chandra in  9th house as the owner without the aspect of any papa(malefic) planets or attaining uccha(exaltation) in 7th house will not yield beneficial results. At the same time a waning Chandra or the one aspected by malefics will not give bad effects.

For Dhanus ascendant, he is the ashtamadhipathi (owner of 8th house).  As Surya and Chandra has been told to not have ashtamadhipathiya dosha(unfavourable effects due to ownership of 8th house), if Chandra is a suba(benefic), then during his dasa he would bless the native with a foreign citizenship. He would also facilitate a  good career and enterpreneurship abroad.

As the owner for 5th house for Meena ascendant, he is the complete subar(benefic)  and hence attaining  uccha(exaltation) or ownership will give excellent benefits. When strong, he would give rich benefits through his significations like liquids, vegetables, white objects and perishables.

As the marakadhipathi(significator of death)for the only left out ascendant, Rishaba and also since its owner, Sukra, considers him to be his enemy, a strong Chandra does not provide beneficial results to its natives. On the contrary, when connected with the subars(benefics) of ascendant, he would give beneficial results.

Mithuna’s lord Budha is the son of Chandra. Their relationship is strange, in a sense that while Chandra would be friendly with Budha showering motherly affection, on the contrary Budha considers mother Chandra as his  enemy.

As per the rule that the enemies of lagna(ascendant) lord should not become powerful than the lagna lord himself, Chandra positioned in his own 2nd house or uccha(exalted) in 12th house for natives of Mithuna ascendant does not fetch good results. The same ideology and inference apply to Kanya ascendants as well, as Budha is the lord of Kanya.

Next, when we consider Makara, he is the marakadhipathi(significator of death) being the owner of 7th house and also since Sani considers Surya and Chandra as his bitter enemies, when he is in waxing phase and is placed in the 7th house all alone, he would deliver only malefic effects due to Kendradhipathiyadosha(defect arising due to ownership of angular houses). Being in uccha(exaltation) also does not give great results.

Finally, he owns the 6th house for Kumbha ascendant. As he also happens to be the enemy of the ascendant lord Sani, during his dasa if he were in own house or in  uccha(exaltation) house, he would give ill health and debts. When in uccha(exalted) he would affect house, vehicle and status of mother. It is hence preferable that for Kumbha ascendants, Chandra either occupies Vrischik ina neechabanga (neutralized state of debilitation)state or in the 6th place from 6th house Dhanus, viz. in 3rd house to give favourable results.

Apart from  Rahu and Kethu, Chandra never becomes vakra(retrogression) due to Surya unlike the other Panchabootha(five elemental) planets. Also, he does not become asthangatha(combust) when getting closer to Surya.  The phase when Chandra gets closer to Surya is called Amavasya.

When we look into the finer aspects of uccha(exaltation) of Chandra in Rishaba, it is clear that Chandra attains uccha(exalted)status only in the first 3 degrees of Rishaba. In the remaining 27 degrees he has a Mooltrikona status.

Similarly when neecha(debilitated) in Vrischik, he would be neecha(debilitated) only in the first 3 degrees of Vrischik. Hence, precise determination of neecha(debilitation) of Chandra should be made only by studying the degree in which he is placed.

As Chandra is the significator of mind, his conjunction with Sani or Rahu is not beneficial. His conjunction with Sani is termed as “Punarpoo yoga” in our scriptures. In this combination only when Sani is in subathuva(beneficial) or attained beneficiation in accordance with my sookshma(finer)strength theory, will he give a spiritual inclination to the native and make him  accomplish in spirituality.

On the other hand, if Sani has attained papathuva(maleficience) and is very close to Chandra, the native would be argumentative and the one who believes that he is always correct, alienating himself from others, becomes suspicious and considers himself inferior. Hence, most often the conjunction of Sani and Chandra does not yield good results.

The conjunction of Rahu with Chandra  also more like an eclipse. When an illuminated planet is approached by a striking darkness, the light is bound to be “swallowed”, in the same sense, the strength of Chandra will come down when conjoined with Rahu.

When Chandra conjoins Rahu, depending on their proximity, the native would be indecisive, unable to judge others, overestimating about self and be with an unstable mind. As Chandra is the significator of mind and body, this combination would affect the physical and/or mental wellbeing of the native during the Chandra and Rahu dasas and bhuktis(sub periods).

Another important concept of “Indu lagna” , a very special aspect in any horoscope, as proposed by Great Kalidasa, is also formulated based on Chandra.

The word “Indu” means Chandra. I have briefly described about this method earlier. Barring Rahu and Kethu, the remaining 7 planets have been assigned some numbers totaling to 120 called as “Grahakala parimanam( a measure of Planetary luminescence)” by Kalidasa.  Indu lagna would be determined by calculating from 9th house from ascendant and rasi. Chandra is also the lord of Indu lagna.

Is Sakata(Wheel) yoga good or bad?

Amongst the yogas due to Chandra,  our scriptures indicate Sakata(Chakra or Wheel) yoga to be a significant one.

In any horoscope when Chandra is placed in houses, 6th, 8th or 12th to Guru then it is called as Sakata yoga.

The Sanskrit word “Sakatam” means the Wheel. As the wheel does not stay in one place, the wheel of life of the native with this yoga will always keep moving upward and downward.

Generally, Sakata yoga does not give beneficial results. The native having this yoga will always face upward and downward trends in life. But when Chandra is in 6th house from Guru, he would be in 8th house from Chandra, this will lead to “Adhiyoga” and in turn become beneficial to the native. There are such exceptions to Sakata yoga.

Also when Chandra or Guru are in 6-8 and are either in own house, uccha(exaltation) or in parivartana(mutual exchange), it would indicate Raja Sakata Yoga or Kalyana Sakata Yoga indicating beneficial alignments.

For example, when Chandra is in Dhanu and Guru in Kataka or Chandra in Rishaba and Guru in Dhanu, will result in Raja Sakata Yoga or Kalyana Sakata Yoga and would bestow favourable results as indicated by our sages.
