However, if the Moon is weak in the chart, it leads to mental anxiety, emotional instability and an inability to relate well to others. This makes one unfriendly and unable to share intimacy, or takes away contentment or peace of mind. The individual becomes moody with an unclear mind. Depending on how severely afflicted it is, there may be a tendency towards neurosis, hysteria or insanity. It also indicates ill health of the mother, or difficulties in social advancement.
