The Moon is a very important aspect of our astrological charts. It’s common to consider Kuja Dosha, or Mars’ influence on the Moon as something terrible.
The Moon is consciousness, our individualized sense of Self. Mars is will power, inspiration, logic motivation. Mars is the power of activity. Mars delighted by the Moon indicates that our consciousness can more easily manifest those desires and ideas specific to our individualized incarnation. Consciousness empowers Mars.
