The "Lonely Moon" and Kemdrum Dosha
Moon, whether in Astrology or Tarot or any other metaphysical science has the most critical rule to play in terms of interpretation.
Moon is an auspicious planet and to have it strong and well placed means easy success in life.
Its the fastest moving planet and thus represents the ever-changing human affairs most strongly. All transits and all dashas are gauged by the Nakshatra/Sign of the natal Moon.
Moon is also the karaka(significator) of the HUMAN MIND AND EMOTIONS and what makes a man. Its the entire response system and emotional stability of a person.
Now when this important celestial body in the chart is afflicted and LONELY or what is technically called the "KEMDRUM DOSH", problems in the person's relationships, finance and stability are bound to occur.
How does the KEMDRUM DOSH occur?
1) The Moon has no planets in the 12th and 2nd house from it.
2) There are no planets in Kendra from it.
3) There are no planets in the Kendra houses of the chart.
Out of this the 1st condition is the most potent.
There are some parihar(softening) of this dosh viz when Moon is conjunct/benefic aspect of Jupiter or when Moon itself moves into one of the Kendra houses.
On the whole this DOSH gives complete inability to make full use of prosperity and opportunities and extreme emotional distance from the world and its complications. It leads to loneliness, detachment and very high level of emotional anxiousness and even depression at times.
Remedies should be performed to strengthen this Moon. Meditation, Yoga, Daily affirmations, Rock Salt and Sugar Baths work wonders. After astrological consultation, gem stone can be worn that balances out the negativity of the Kemdrum Dosh by boosting other masculine planets.
Pearl/Moon stone should not be worn.
