What does Moon Represent?

Moon is regarded as the queen in our solar system, and it is considered the mother in Astrology. Since it is the closest celestial body to planet earth, life on earth is sustained due to the presence of the Sun and Moon.

Just like a Mother, who is the true epitome of unconditional love, purest form of care, emotional fulfillment, Planet moon represents the same thing in every individual’s life.

Astrologically the nature of the Moon is like unconditional and unbiased love of a mother, who doesn’t differentiate or judge her child while nurturing or taking care of the child.

Due to this reason, the planet moon doesn’t have personal enmity with other planets while other planets have enmity and friendship with each other; therefore, the Moon is considered a highly benefic planet in Astrology.

In our physical life, planet Moon represents our mother, milk, sea, water, foreign countries, people from the foreign countries, fish and other water creatures, shipping company’s, silk garments, etc.
