Strength of Moon in astrology

According to astrology, the Moon is the strongest on the Shukla Ekadashi (11th lunar day of bright Moon to Krishna Panchami (5th lunar day of dark Moon). However, it goes weak from Krishna Shashti (6th lunar day of the dark Moon) to Amavasya (New Moon). Planet Moon attains medium strength from Shukla Paksha Pratipada (1st lunar day of bright Moon) to Dashmi. 

Afflicted Moon in Vedic astrology means that the planet forms conjunction or aspect by any naturally malefic planets— Mars, Rahu, Ketu, or Saturn. It could lead the native to possess some emotional and mental issues and make him/her suffer from ailments pertaining to the same. 

However, when the Moon becomes debilitated in astrology, it turns weak. So, when the native possesses Moon in the Scorpio zodiac sign, it turns weak. It shall make the native go through emotional ups and downs and troubles related to the mind (mostly). The person shall go through mental imbalance or instability.

When someone has a Moon in the Taurus zodiac sign, it exalts. Thus, the native enjoys mental stability and sereneness. People with Pisces, Scorpio, Libra, Cancer or Aries ascendant enjoy good impacts of the Moon. For them, the planet becomes the lord of the 5th, 9th, 10th, 1st, and 4th houses, respectively.
