As a very sensitive and mutable or dual planet, the moon can be easily influenced and overcome by other planetary energies. Saturn can darken it, depress it, or give it detachment. Rahu can cloud it or confuse it or cause us to lose power over our minds.

Moon is not only responsiveness but also inertia. Through our lunar sensitivity we can become accustomed to a life of pain, sorrow or ignorance as well as to one of joy and truth.

The mind is purely a dependent consciousness; it has no real nature of its own. As such it can function in one or two ways: it can reflect the inner nature of things or their outward appearance.
