Moon is the closest celestial body to Earth and has enough gravitation pull to raise tides in the sea. Hence, it is scientifically proven that the Moon has a major impact on every living and non-living thing on Earth. Due to this reason, Vedic and western astrology consider Moon as a planet.
Moon in astrology represents the subconscious part of our mind. Due to this, the planet moon is considered the most important planet in Astrology because it represents our thought and emotions.
Our thoughts create our actions that later pave the way to our success or disaster. Yes, it does represent many physical things in our lives, but it has a significant influence on the non-physical dimensions.
What Does Moon Represent Mentally
Our thought process, our feelings, comfort zone, hobbies, happiness, sorrow, our perception, intuition, instincts, gut feelings, imagination, creativity, our dreams, our mental strength, nurturing, caringness, our mentality, ability to resist addictions, speculation, emotional wellbeing, the perception of the world around us is the projection of the Moon depending on its placement in our birth chart.
How we feel about the world and people around us is projected by the placement and strength of Planet Moon in our birth chart. For example, a person with a very well-placed moon in his birth chart can be strong-headed and emotionally happy even if life around him is a disaster.
On the other hand, a person with a badly placed moon in his birth chart may have all the wealth of the world, a beautiful and caring wife might remain sad and lead a sorrowful life, remain unhappy and unsatisfied.
This is the reason a zodiac sign is always calculated from the sign where the Moon is placed because it represents our mindset, the innermost nature of the native.
What Does Moon Represent in Physical Dimension
In physical dimensions, planet moon in astrology represents Mother, face, Water, sea, foreign countries, shipping company, beverages, left eye, art, physical letters, sometimes business, white color, well, water tank, fish, and other water creatures, pond, pearls, and Transparent crystals.
Now that we understand what the Moon represents in astrology, we should understand what the 1st house means.
What does the first house in astrology represent?
The first house in astrology is called the ascendant, which simply means the ruler of the entire birth chart. It is the most essential house in astrology because it represents the beginning.
The sign placed in the first house is the sign which was rising on the eastern horizon during the exact moment of your birth. The 1st house is all about the self, the person you are meant to become and become. It shows the characteristics and personality of the person.
Therefore, it also represents the personality and self-image you have in society. Therefore, what you are internally( mentally) and what you portray externally is determined by the sign placement of the first house.
The first house represents many other things such as your physical appearance, your physical health, your perception about the world is also seen from this house.
In terms of a body part, the first house represents the upper part of the head; due to this reason, it represents your mind, mentality, thought pattern. The ascendant also indicates how much willpower and determination of the native.
Since this house represents an individual’s attitude towards life, the type of obstacles one can overcome or not is seen from this.
Moon in the 1st House – Appearance & Emotions
Without considering the sign in which the Moon is placed, here is a generic answer to the impact of the Moon in the 1st house of a birth chart, i.e., in the ascendant.
When placed in the first house, Moon bestows the native with an attractive appearance. Such native mostly has a youthful look. In the case of a female native, it gives a child-like adorable face. Natives with Moon in the first house usually have a fair skin tone unless other planets have no negative influence.
Moon is all about emotions, thoughts, and feelings; natives with planet moon in the 1st house / in ascendent are very sensitive and emotional. Since the 1st house is all about the self, and the Moon is the mind, it makes the native very emotionally attached to many aspects of life.
Planet moon also represents the mother; hence, the native’s mother plays a huge role in their life. Therefore, it can be said that the mother becomes the driving force of the success/failure of the person depending on the sign and the nakshatra moon is placed in.
Either the native is very much attached to the mother and needs advice from her in every aspect of life or, if badly placed, can cause negligence and detachment from the mother. If poorly placed, the natives can do things against their mother’s will.
Moon in 1st House Spouse/Marriage
In terms of relationships, love, and marriage, when the planet moon resides in the first house, the native always tends to care for the spouse/partner as a mother.
Be it in a relationship, marriage, partnership, taking care of others; they will be emotionally attached to the other person. However, if the Moon is badly placed, it’s highly possible that they may be completely detached or in continuous emotional turmoil.
Such natives give all their heart while understanding the problems of others; it also makes the native very emotionally attached to the spouse. While on the other hand, the spouse of such a native is very strong-minded and has a well-balanced approach towards life.
