Debilitated Moon in Twelfth House
When debilitated Moon is placed in the twelfth house in a horoscope, Sagittarius rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Moon is malefic in the twelfth house in many cases though it may turn benefic in some cases. This may happen when Moon is influenced by benefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of benefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Moon may become more benefic.
Since Moon is weak due to debilitation, it may become easy for benefic planets to add positivity to Moon. If debilitated Moon is influenced by one or more than one benefic planet in the twelfth house, it may turn significantly or highly benefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such debilitated Moon can also turn it benefic in some cases, when such theme is benefic. The concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.
Let’s look at some results which may be given by debilitated Moon in the twelfth house when it is benefic. Such benefic debilitated Moon can bless the native with good results related to spiritual growth, foreign lands, profession, finances and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.
Such benefic debilitated Moon can take the native to foreign lands and he may settle there permanently, if his overall horoscope is supportive. Taking an example, suppose debilitated Moon is placed in the twelfth house of a horoscope in Scorpio. Benefic Jupiter forms Hamsa Yoga in the first house in Sagittarius and benefic Mars is also placed in the same house. Benefic exalted Saturn is placed in the eleventh house in Libra, Venus is placed in the ninth house in Leo and benefic exalted Mercury forms Bhadra Yoga in the tenth house. In this case, the native may go abroad and he may settle there, on the basis of his profession. The native may engage in a creative profession, like he may be an actor. He may possess good acting abilities and he may come across success, fame, money and recognition as an actor in a foreign country.
If benefic Sun is placed in the tenth house in Virgo with Mercury, benefic Rahu is placed in the first house in Sagittarius with Jupiter and Mars, and Ketu is placed in the seventh house in Gemini, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may possess very good acting talent and he may witness a lot of success, money, fame and recognition as an actor in a foreign country. The native may specialize in the genres of drama, action, comedy and romance. He may have a large number of fans throughout the world and he may receive several awards for his acting performances in various movies. The native may get married to a female actor or singer, who may be the citizen of a foreign country. The couple may be blessed with more than one child and they may achieve success through creative fields or through businesses of various types.
Apart from these, benefic debilitated Moon in the twelfth house can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.
On the other hand, malefic debilitated Moon in the twelfth house can trouble the native with problems related to mother, mental health, physical health, lifespan, profession, finances, reputation and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
In horoscopes with Sagittarius ascendant, Moon rules the eighth house which represents lifespan, among other things. Since Moon is weak due to debilitation and it is placed in the twelfth house which features a hostile environment, this placement of Moon may pose threat to native’s lifespan as well as health. Hence the native may suffer from problems related to physical and/or mental health and he may witness reduction in lifespan, where the quantum of such reduction is dependent on the overall horoscope of the native.
Taking an example, suppose malefic debilitated Moon is placed in the twelfth house of a horoscope in Scorpio with malefic exalted Ketu. Malefic exalted Rahu is placed in the sixth house in Taurus with malefic Venus. Benefic debilitated Mercury is placed in the fourth house in Pisces, and malefic Mars is placed in the third house in Aquarius. In this case, the native may suffer from physical health problems which may trouble him and which may also reduce his lifespan. The native may also suffer from problems related to mental health and he may die before the age of 60 or that of 50, depending on the overall horoscope and running times.
If Saturn is placed in the third house in Aquarius with Mars, Sun is placed in the fourth house in Pisces with Mercury, and Jupiter is placed in the twelfth house in Scorpio with Moon and Ketu, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may suffer from serious health issues which may trouble him a lot and which may claim his life. The native may die before the age of 50, 40 or even that of 30, depending on the finer factors and running times. The native may die because of some type of cancer, like stomach cancer, brain cancer, pancreatic cancer or some other type of cancer.
Apart from these, malefic debilitated Moon in the twelfth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
