SIGNIFICANCE OF MOON OVER MIND: AN ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW
Radhakrishnan P. Daivajnaha
 
ABSTRACT
Astrology considers the Moon as a deity whereas astronomically, it is merely a celestial body. The essential nature of mind of a believer or a disbeliever in astrology remains one and the same whereas their personal feelings, sentiments and experience may vary under cosmic nature. Astrological texts written by the Indian seers emphasized close relationship of the moon and human mind. The waning and waxing state of the Moon demonstrate the reality of human life blended with ups and downs of fortunes based upon time, space and causation. The present paper is an attempt to give an overview of the influence of moon over human mind as enunciated in Indian astrology.
