Vedic Astrology Birth Chart
When Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 12th house it also has an aspect on the 4th house and the 8th house and all these three houses are more about the spiritual or the esoteric world or the paranormal (the world beyond this normal world such as Outerspace, places hidden such as caves, etc). Also, all the three signs > Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio falling on these 3 houses are the signs which are also mystical and esoteric too.

These signs represent things of the other dimensions such as ghosts, spirits, aliens, things buried underground, Outerspace, occult, metaphysical, supernatural, hidden secrets, etc. Now when Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 12th house the native gets obsessed about things as mentioned above but the results will vary according to where the Moon (lord of Cancer) is placed in the birth chart.

Case 1: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer and if Moon is also placed along with Rahu in the 12th house then here the moon is placed in its own sign and so it will protect its own house. This is quite a good placement as it protects you from any kind of loss in life as the 12th house is the house of losses.

But here there could be a loss of mind and loss of mother (as Moon represents mother) if there are aspects from malefic planets like Rahu, Saturn and Mars (more problem if 2 or 3 malefic aspects at the same time) from the transit (gochar) or in the birth chart and Rahu is already sitting with Moon here. Sometimes, mentally retarded people have this kind of placement of Rahu and moon but there must be an aspect from Saturn and Mars too on the 12th house in the horoscope for this to happen.

By loss of mind here I also mean you could be lost in your own world and you may not be too much social and you may not be interested in the materialistic side of life. This is usually the case with people like scientists who all the time are busy in their research. When you do research you are in a way cut off from the normal world. But here the moon is placed in its own sign which makes the heart of a person very strong as Moon represents our heart.

Since 12th house is the house of foreign places so with this placement of Rahu and Moon you could provide your services to some organization in a foreign country or a multinational company. You may even work over the internet from behind the scenes as 12th house is also of "behind the scenes". But many singers, painters, artists, musicians, and writers have also this kind of placement as you become very creative and imaginative with this placement of Moon in the 12th house as 12th house is the house of your imaginative world and mind here becomes really very intuitive and it is the power of intuition only that makes you very creative. You could also be an air hostess with this placement as when you are in an airplane you are out of this normal world (which 12th house represents) and there you nurture or serve the customers. If the 11th house lord Mercury is placed in the 12th house then it may even make you a News Anchor or even someone who communicate through a website (by writing for a website) or you may even be making youtube videos to provide news or information to the public through the youtube videos.

Case 2: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Leo in the first house then here 12th house lord is placed in the 1st house. As a kid you may play a lot of video games with this placement as Moon in the sign of Leo makes your mind to enjoy fun and entertainment and games are nothing but fun and the sign of Leo represents fun and entertainment. You could also be a great music lover or even a musician with this placement of Moon as the music also comes under entertainment. You could also be an actor or film director or video editor or a stage performer in general with this placement of Rahu and Moon. This is more so if Moon is placed in the Nakshatra of Purva Phalguni in the sign of Leo in the 1st house.

But if your Moon is placed in the Magha Nakshatra in the sign of Leo in the 1st house then you could be in a leadership position in a company. You may be the head or CEO or at some authoritative position in a company especially if your Sun is placed in the 1st house along with Moon but Saturn must also be placed in the 6th house in the sign of Capricorn. Saturn in the sign of Capricorn is always good to be in the leadership position.

Case 3: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 2nd house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 2nd house which is 3 places away. This placement is often found in people who are a teacher of finance (accounting and mathematics) as 2nd house represents finances. That is the reason their mind (moon) is all the time into arguments with the students as Moon is in the sign of Virgo which is a sign of arguments. But Mercury must be placed in the sign of Cancer in the 12th house for this to happen. As then the 11th lord will be placed in the 12th house which shows public (11th house is public-students here) is coming to your nurturing (the sign of Cancer) and you are nurturing them by communicating with them in teaching the finances.

But since Virgo is also a sign of health and healing you could also be into the marketing and advertising of health care products. You could be in the marketing department of a health care company or it maybe you could be selling health and beauty products online. But you could also be a doctor, nurse or an alternative healer.

Case 4: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Libra in the 3rd house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 3rd house which is 4 places away. Here the mind could be into arts, crafts, and designing. Here the mind is into resolving disputes of people as Libra is a sign of diplomacy and resolving disputes. This placement of Moon and Rahu is usually found in the charts of Lawyers and other people who are somehow involved in dispute resolution. Chartered Accountants can also be seen from this placement as these people also help businesses deal with government rules and regulations. But Libra is also a sign of creativity and so you could also be involved in arts, crafts, and design whether it is to design online (such as web design) or offline.

Case 5: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 4th house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 4th house which is 5 places away. This placement is often found in people who are in sports, gambling(such as stock markets and sports betting), occult science and those who are into a secret investigation. When you gamble there is really a lot of ups and downs in the mind which the sign of Scorpio represents. But Moon is considered debilitated in the sign of Scorpio unless Mars is also seated along with Moon in the sign of Scorpio. But surgical doctors may also have this placement as Scorpio is also a sign of surgeries but Saturn must be placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 4th house for that to happen. Usually, heart surgeons are seen from this placement of Moon as the 4th house represents our heart.

When you watch a live match in any sports there is a lot of ups and downs in the game and this is what the sign of Scorpio represents > sudden ups and downs. When Moon is placed in the sign of Scorpio the native may be a spectator of such live matches and sports commentators are also among such people and even who are involved in sports betting. You can also see ghostly things or even you may be possessed by dead spirits or Bhoots if your Moon is in the sign of Scorpio.

Case 6: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 5th house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 5th house which is 6 places away. This kind of Moon is usually found in those sports coaches who are engaged in doing all the research for the good health of the players (regarding nutrition and fitness) so that they can play better for their country, school, state or zone. People who run health care and fitness centers also have this kind of Moon placement in the sign of Sagittarius as they nurture people for good health. But you could also be someone who does research in competitions and exams.

Case 7: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 6th house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 6th house which is 7 places away. Here the mind could be in listening to the public in the customer care. You could be doing a job in a company in the customer care department handling their emails, phone calls or chatting with them. This is more so possible if your Moon is placed in the Shravana Nakshatra in the 6th house. But you could also be a manager who manages the employees or even a recruiter who hires people for a company.

Case 8: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 7th house which is 8 places away. This placement of Moon I saw in the birth chart of a Leo Ascendant person who is managing many employees under him in a firm where he is doing the job as a Chartered Accountant. So when you manage people or employees under you then your Moon could be in the sign of Aquarius but his Saturn was placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 6th house in its own sign of Capricorn. Here the mind is mostly into somehow making hidden or secretive relationships with the public which is usually the job of a public relationships manager or doing research in the public for hiring or something else. This is because the sign of Aquarius represents the public and the Moon is placed in it in the 7th house of relationships.

Case 9: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 8th house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 8th house which is 9 places away. This placement of Moon is usually found in the birth chart of airforce or airplane pilots or someone who do space research. Moon in the sign of Pisces let your mind go out of this normal world. When are in the sky or in the Outerspace then your mind is not in this normal world. You could also be a research scientist with this placement. When you do research your mind is lost in the intuitive world (other dimensions) to bring something original from there. But you could also be someone doing research on hidden or unknown secrets of life, such as finding the hidden ancient structures and mummies, as the 8th house represents the hidden secrets of life.

Case 10: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Aries in the 9th house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 9th house which is 10 places away. This Moon placement could get you into sports and vehicle races especially if the lord of the 9th house, Mars, is placed in the 6th house (exalted Mars). Also, here the mind could get obsessed about doing a lot of religious activities or gathering information related to law and legal matters of the government especially if Mars, the lord of the 9th house, is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Sagittarius. Athletes and mountaineers may also have such a placement.

Case 11: If Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer but if Moon (lord of 12th house) is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 10th house then here the 12th house lord is placed in the 10th house which is 11 places away. Here the mind could be obsessed about creativity especially if Venus is also seated along with Moon in the 10th house. The native could also be into food, clothing or luxury items manufacturing as 10th house is the house of working with machines to create or manufacture something.
