Positions for Chandra and Lagna
Rules quoted from page 171, Light on Relationships : The Synastry of Indian Astrology by Hart Defouw, Robert E. Svoboda
Gandanta = one of the many designations related to sandhi = juncture, transition-zone, or cusp.
Gandanta zones = six rashi cusps that form the borders
Chandra lagna or radix lagna is considered to be weakened when lagna occupies a Gandanta zone:

Old Chandra is friendly toward young Budha (his offspring) but young Budha hates old Chandra (his true but illegitimate father).
For example, the nativity with a weakened gandanta-zone Revati Chandra, where Chandra receives drishti of uttama-Budha in yuvati bhava, can give a relentlessly verbal-analytical spouse who accurately but painfully dissects all the personality weaknesses of the native .

Otherwise healthy Graha -- not only Chandra and Lagna but also the individual Graha - which happen to be gandanta may give a weird twist to the affairs of the bhava within their rashi and navamsha during their periods.
