Q.3 Why Moon represents mind as well as blood in astrology? Question by Priyesh Dutt, Mumbai. Shri U.K.Jha: In astrology significations of planets are based mainly on the principle of symbology besides other factors of esoteric imports known to the God realized seers. Moon is the fast moving entity in the horoscope and in human system mind is the fastest moving (abstract) thing. Hence, mind is represented by Moon in astrology. Based on the same reasons of symbology Moon also represents blood which circulates in the body at maximum speed. In astrology blood is represented by both Moon and the Mars. Q.4 Venus in the 12th house is considered very good, why?

Question by Manoj P, India.

Shri U.K.Jha: Venus is a planet of luxury, enjoyment and revelations. The field of 12th house is also suffused with the vibrations of same order. When Venus is deposited in the 12th house, two identical vibrations of Bhoga - luxuriation and enjoyments; match together to yield augmented fruits of this house. In Tantrik doctrine Bhoga (enjoyments) is for Moksha (emancipation) - Bhogayate Mokshah; and Moksha (emancipation) is to steer clear from this Samsar (world) - Mokshayate Samsarah. Hence, Venus is considered good in the 12th house. Q.5 For Pisces born people a Vargotam Jupiter placed in 5th house is said to be giving more female issues, why? Question by P.M.Shastry, Trivandrum.
