The location of the Moon in the chart – along with afflictions and beneficial associations determines the the capacity of the mind, the experience of the individual, the character and the expected time of the soul dwelling in the housing called body. So we can say that the position of the Moon at birth speaks to the life of the soul, its embodiment, the prarabdha, vasana and ideations that the mind will engage in. The Moon is the presiding deity of the mind.

You are the the Infinite, come in the role of the Finite, the formless Infinite appearing as the formful Infinitesimal, the Absolute pretending to be the Relative, the Atma behaving as the Body, the Metaphysical masquerading as the merely Physical. The Universal Atma is the basis of all being. Atma is the basis of all being. The sky was there before houses were built under it; it penetrated and pervaded them for some time; then the houses crumbled and became heaps and mounds, but the sky was not affected at all. So too, the Atma pervades the body and subsists even when the body is reduced to dust.

Om jaivātṛkāya namaha, Salutations to the One who speaks to the life of the soul and its longevity.
