Each one of us longs for deep and meaningful relationships. In a lifetime, we have numerous opportunities to experience a union of souls: between business associates, friends, a parent and child, a husband and wife, a teacher and student, a guru and disciple.
Often we find ourselves repeating negative patterns of behavior. We may be drawn to people that bring us unhappiness; we may be dissatisfied with our jobs; or we may persist in unproductive ways of thinking that create pessimism and negativity. We want things to change, but don’t know what to do. Sometimes, we tell ourselves that we are just unlucky. We may even blame other people or life itself for our misfortune. In our pain, we may ask, “Why is this happening to me?”
We are told by the sages of old that happiness lies within ourselves and our sense of fortune or misfortune all starts with our perception
A great area of the hand you can check for perception and to see how objective you are in your daily life, particularly in your dealings with people, is the Mount of Moon. This zone signifies the degree to which we receive an accurate or distorted impression of what is happening around us. It is thus an indicator of our ability to perceive ourselves, and the world around us, in an objective manner. It is extremely important, as our perceptions are the foundation for our actions. Also, the Moon is the mount we check for signs of optimism, depression, gratitude, sadness, trust or paranoia.
A calm, balanced Mount of Moon is pink in color and ideally has a strong line of destiny originating on it. Preferably, there are not too many horizontal bars crossing the mount. Ideally, it is balanced with its neighboring Mount of Venus, thereby indicating steadiness, depth of character and an ability to make a commitment.
If you often feel anxious, apprehensive and insecure or if you are excitable and impulsive in your judging events, check the Mount of Moon in both your hands. If your Moon is red compared to the rest of your hand, has horizontal lines or if you see a whirlpool pattern in the fine ridges of your mount, it shows that you are vulnerable and can easily be affected by your immediate circumstances. Handprints can even give a clearer picture of that area in your hand.
By remaining inwardly calm, centered, and objective, we can deal better with changing events in our lives and our emotional reactions to them. We often hear it said that the only certainty in life is change. But although we may see ourselves as having little or no control over the changing events of our lives, we can control our perception of these events and consequently our reaction to change. Once we refuse to be at the mercy of our sensory impressions and our emotional responses to them, we can attract and maintain a happy, healthy and long-term relationship.
As Winston Churchill said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” A great way to develop a good Moon is to remain positive. We’ve found one of the easiest and most effective ways to transform inner turmoil into creativity and joy is ensuring our Mount of Moon is strong and balanced. Indeed, the condition our Luna is in can make our life a heaven or a hell. So, we better make sure we are using our Moon energy properly—our success and happiness depend on it!
