What is the difference between Moon chart and Lagna chart? (Vedic Astrology)
To make a Moon chart just make that house the ascendant (or 1st house) where the Moon is placed and it will become a Moon chart. For example, if your Moon is in Gemini then it will be Gemini sign in the 1st house with Moon placed in the 1st house and this will be your Moon chart. In the astrology software, the Lagna chart is always given as the default chart. Lagna is also called as ascendant and the ascendant will be in the first house in the Lagna chart.
Moon chart we see for the mental state and the Lagna chart we see for the physical state. This can be understood with examples. For example, if Moon is placed in the sign of Leo and if the Sun, ruler of the Leo sign, is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 2nd house (in Moon chart) then it could make you suffer on the mental level with eye or eyesight problems and your eyesight could go bad. Moon is our soul and the soul feels all the pain and suffering on the emotional level when Moon is afflicted. Sun is our vision (eyesight) as Sun is a planet of light. Virgo is a sign of difficulties and diseases and so when Sun is placed in the sign of Virgo it could give eye-related problems (such as shortsightedness or longsightedness or blurred vision) but this is only so if Moon is placed in the sign of Leo and Sun is in Virgo. So, in the Moon chart, we look at our emotional difficulties and how our soul is suffering.
On the other hand, say, you are a Leo ascendant (in the Lagna chart) and if the ascendant lord Sun is placed in the sign of Virgo (considering Moon is placed in some other sign other than Leo) in the 2nd house then as per Lagna chart it won’t give eyesight problems though in both the cases (in Moon chart and Lagna chart) Sun is placed in the sign of Virgo. This gives a clear indication that the Lagna chart gives totally different predictions than the Moon chart. The placement of Sun in the sign of Virgo in the 2nd house in the Lagna chart could make the native work hard physically in some engineering job but it won’t affect his/her eyes. Sun is a planet of heat and light and so the native might be working hard with the heating and lighting systems in the field of engineering when Sun is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 2nd house in the Lagna chart. On the other hand, Moon in Leo and Sun in Virgo is never good for the eyes.
Some diseases and problems make us suffer on the mental level while other problems and diseases make us suffer only on the physical level. For example, if you are a Virgo ascendant then the sign of Virgo will fall in your 1st house and Virgo is a sign of difficulties and physical work. Now, let us suppose, Saturn and Moon both are placed in the 1st house in the sign of Virgo, and let us assume that the native of this chart is a Carpenter by profession. Now, Saturn in Virgo in the 1st house will make the native work hard on the physical level but since Moon is also placed in the sign of Virgo in the 1st house so it is also going to mentally affect him/her and the native could feel some kind of pain and suffering in the heart (as Moon represents our heart) while doing his carpentry job. So here, his/her work is affecting him both mentally and physically.
Now, let us suppose, only Saturn is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 1st house, and Moon is not placed in the 1st house but is placed somewhere else in the chart. In that case, Saturn will make the native work hard in his profession of carpentry but mentally it won’t affect him (such as giving pain and suffering in the heart) as now the Moon is not placed in the sign of Virgo in the 1st house. In this case, though the native is working hard but he will be enjoying his work as there is no mental suffering though he may sweat a lot while working.
Virgo is a very difficult placement for the Moon. That is the reason Saturn Moon conjunction in the sign of Virgo is never good as then your work is mentally going to affect you and, in that case, you will not like to work and you may even give up your job. People working in the field of IT (information technology) with Saturn Moon conjunction in the sign of Virgo often give up their job as they feel mentally tired and exhausted while doing such kind of work.
Let us take one more example. Suppose the native is Capricorn ascendant and his ascendant lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Aries in the 4th house and so we can say that Saturn is debilitated but on the mental level, this debilitated Saturn is never going to affect the native unless Moon is placed in the sign of Saturn, Capricorn, in the 1st house. Many people have debilitated Saturn in the chart but their Moon is not somehow connected with the sign of Saturn, Capricorn and so that debilitated Saturn never creates problems for them. The native could get heart problems with debilitated Saturn especially when the Moon is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 1st house. This is the reason it is important to analyze both the Moon chart and the Lagna chart simultaneously.
When a person gets a heart attack (or any other heart problem) the soul of the person feels the pain and suffering and the planet Moon represents our soul and so the Moon chart is the chart of our soul and we look at the Moon chart for health issues and mental state. Also, the characteristics of a person are seen from the Moon chart.
Vehicle accidents also happen in the life of many people but vehicle accidents give us physical injuries and for the probability of accidents in someone’s life we look at the Lagna chart only. When we get any kind of injury it would give pain and suffering but only after the accident and never before the accident. Also, the physical self is hurt in an accident (and sometimes the physical self is don’t even hurt) and Lagna represents the physical self. That is the main reason we look at the probability of an accident in the Lagna chart and also looking at transits is also very important. This example might have made it more clear > when to look at the Lagna chart and when to look at the Moon chart.
In accidents, there is always a collision and Libra is a sign of collision (interaction) and so when Mars is transiting the sign of Libra or the 7th house maximum number of accidents happen. When Moon is transiting through the sign of Scorpio and if Mars, ruler of Scorpio, is transiting the sign of Libra or the 7th house there are maximum chances of a collision but the ascendant must be involved in it. Scorpio is a very turbulent sign and in accidents also there is a lot of turbulence. Many people even get sports injuries while playing and such kinds of events are also predicted through the Lagna chart and transits in the Lagna chart.
There are many diseases that affect us mentally. For example, when we get a fever, it emotionally affects us and our soul feels the pain and suffering and so we need to look at the Moon chart and transits in the Moon chart for any kind of prediction related to fever or other diseases such as migraine, depression, heart problems, low and high blood pressure, etc. Blood pressure problems happen in our emotional state and so we look at the Moon chart for that as Moon has to do with our emotions.
The happening of the event like marriage is also seen in the Lagna chart but such kind of event depends on the destiny of the person (what person he/she is supposed to get married to in this life) and so the confirmation from the Navamsa chart is very important for events like marriage as the destiny of the person is stored in the Navamsa chart. If the Navamsa chart is showing marriage then we need to look at the transits and dasas in the Lagna chart for the timing of marriage.
The moon chart is never looked for marriage predictions. In marriage, the physical self is involved both for the native and her/his spouse, and for everything related to the physical self we look at the Lagna chart. Navamsa chart is the destiny chart and it tells what is stored in your destiny in this life. Similarly, other divisional charts are destiny charts for achieving different things in life such as property (D 4 chart), kids (D 7 chart), wealth (D2 chart), vehicles (D 4 charts), marriage (D 9 chart), etc. But we always associate these charts with the Lagna chart to predict the destiny events. There is no role of the Moon chart in these.
But there are other tools also that need to be studied for all kinds of events in life which I don’t reveal in free articles here and you need to join my paid tutorials for that as mentioned on the contact me page above.
