These descriptions also apply to Chandra in mutual aspect (opposition)
When Chandra shares a rashi or a bhava with other graha, the native = psycho-emotionally complex.
The Vimshottari dasha periods of graha which accompany Chandra will be emotionally charged, despite the potentially non-emotional character of the Vimshottari time-lord itself.

Chandra-Budha yoga = generally neutral.
Chandra's calming and comforting behaviors are conjoined with Budha's agenda for coupling, communicating, messaging, narrative, conversation, argumentation, analysis, explanation, instruction, tool-craft, handworks.
Seeks emotional identity (Chandra) validation via mental activity, intellectual discrimination, and perceptual development.
This yoga energizes the emotions and sensitizes the thought process. The person is usually a quick thinker, may be somewhat impulsive in reaching conclusions, but if often intuitively correct even when their reasoning path is quirky.
Budha + Chandra in Vrischika can mature into a tantrik channeler with good tutoring, but one may be also also prone to sudden emotional outbursts.
Budha + Chandra in Mesha = may lack maturity or patience; prefers to engage emotionally on instinct and impulse.
In a rashi of Shani, withdrawn and conventional communication style.
In a rashi of Guru, Surya, or Chandra, vibrantly positive and sensitive style, but may lack realism.
Das says IF:
"This placement promotes communication and gives many friends,
it also indicates strong emotions and the tendency to be
sensitive to criticism. You may find that your relationships may be kept at some distance due to your emotional nature. Guard
against making unreasonable demands upon your friends. "

Chandra-Guru yoga is generally favorable. This native seeks emotional identity validation through physical fertility, through involvement in lives of their children or their works of art, and through maintaining a positive worldview.
Chandra's calming and comforting behaviors are conjoined with Guru's agenda for production of children, inclusionary, opportunity-increasing actions, expansion of wisdom-teachings (can be dogmatic) and priestly roles.
Generally pleasant and cheerful folk unless either Guru or Chandra is damaged.
Like all yoga involving the Moon, Chandra+Guru gives a tendency to project one's feelings upon others. Tends toward a super-optimistic projection that more realistic souls in their environment may find hard to take. Yet, overall, their overbearing emotional projections are more helpful than harmful in this weary world.
the native craves wisdom but because they ignore negative perceptions, they may project a need for everyone in their environment (especially family members) to display a cheerful optimism and full agreement at all times.
Strong compassion and charitable instincts if the intellectual capacity is well developed. Otherwise tends toward humanistic sympathy or pity for those less fortunate.
Brings good fortune into the native 's life. Frequently more than one mother. If Chandra-Guru-yuti-Rahu, may bring several mothers from different cultures who all help the native in different ways. (Karaka for beneficial cross-cultural adoption).
Strong humanistic tendencies and maternal instincts make a wonderful caretaker. If connected with lagna or Lagnesha, may manifest an abundant physical body with large breasts.
If the nativity shows no other source of social identity, Chandra-Guru can make a "breeder" whose sole emotional validation comes from enacting their reproductive powers.
In a rashi of Shani may be emotionally constrained: gives problems with mother. Wants to care for others but fails, due to inadequate early mothering.
Chandra in Karkata = highly auspicious for wealth, children, and home.
Generally very nice people, whether they are effective in the world or not.
Chandra-Guru yoga is generally favorable. Guru-4 seeks emotional identity validation through physical fertility, through involvement in lives of their children or their works of art, and through maintaining a positive worldview
Generally pleasant and cheerful folk unless either Guru or Chandra is damaged. Although the "heart is in the right place," Guru-4 may be prone to a "Pollyanna" type of excess optimism regarding foundational matters of homeland, homelife, parenting and schooling. Positive view may filter out authentic but negative information, giving pretty but inaccurate worldview. Their glass is always half-full :)

The habitual (Chandra) response to any variety of deprivation = sensual pleasuring, whether via food, perfumes, wines, touch, or other drug-type indulgence.
A challenging pair in Kanya, where prostitution may offer an easy path to sensual entitlements and wealth, and substance addictions are common.
Emotional need for sensual Luxury. Chandra's calming and comforting behaviors are conjoined with Shukra's agenda for sweet sense-data experiences.
Pleasure can arrive via any of the sense channels =
One rarely feels (Chandra) nurtured, safe, protected, wanted until some species of fleshly pleasure has been registered in the material brain.
What one wants; one gets; when one wants it. There is little concern for the consequences of one's indulgence regarding the lives of others.
The child may have been rewarded with sweets by the busy, ill, or otherwise distracted parents. Often the parents subscribe to a positive belief in food or sweet rewards for good behavior, ranging from candy and money given for good marks in school to the (more common) bribery with treats to make the child go away and leave the parents space for parents' own interests, such as enjoying adult company, working, studio art hours, etc.
The end result is that the child feels entitled to considerable indulgence as a reward for having met certain conditions or expectations.
A man might justify indulgence by pointing to the fact that he is a good material provider for his family - on that basis, he can do what he wants.
Indulgence. A woman raised by parents who indulged her with sweet treats or dolls (Shukra) instead of personal attention (Chandra). Such a native might justify her adult indulgences by saying that she is 'stressed out' or "feeling deprived'. In order to continue serving her family (or getting to work on time or running a corporation or whatever 'stable-parenting' performance model she selects) she must have indulgent food, or drink, drugs, or sensual pleasures such as shopping for beautiful ornaments.
Chandra in Vrischika + Shukra
Chandra in Kanya + Shukra
Chandra-Shukra yoga is generally less favorable.
Yoga pairs involving the Moon give a tendency to project one's feelings upon others. Chandra-Shukra natives tend to project their own love of beauty and balance upon the world.
Enjoys the company of women and forms balanced partnerships easily with persons of all ranks. The mother is also fashionable and socially attractive (although harsh drishti can limit both mother's and native's beauty).
Sociable and pleasant natured.
Strongly identified with marriage and business partnership.
Excellent intuitive sense of design but may be "slave to fashion", unless practical Shani casts a limiting drishti. Likes to be in arts and architecture, where their perceptions are appreciated. Excellent adviser and loyal partner. May spend lavishly on personal beauty and decorating their home.

Emotionally entitled to center-stage attention.
Chandra-Surya yoga = generally favorable.
A woman may bask in the light of her confident father or husband. However she may lose most of her creative independence in the marriage.
A man may find his mother to be a mere reflection of his father's glory, and he may seek a wife with similar male-reflective not female-creative qualities. Alternatively as in the case of Rajiv Gandhi, the mother's nurturing energies are greatly dominated by politics or theatre.
A man may be the "apple of his mother's eye" yet she is less empowered to directly help him. Decisions are referred to the father or the political group.
Chandra's calming and comforting behaviors are conjoined with Surya's agenda for politics, theatre, literary and performance-art creativity, amusements, entertainments, Divine intelligence, gambling, games, speculation, eyes and light, fashion, romance, celebrity lifestyle, adoration-admiration, applause, and recognition.
One sees (Ravi) oneself as 'chosen' (elected) thus good for getting theatrical roles or being elected to political office.
This native seeks emotional identity validation through political action, charismatic and brilliant center-stage roles, and enjoyments in romance.
All yoga involving the Moon give a tendency to project one's feelings upon others. Surya indicates rational thought, decision-making, and public identity through ego activity. This native will project their own thoughts and beliefs upon others, presuming that everyone shares or wants to share their own mentality and their beliefs.
the native may appropriate the rights of others, in the mistaken belief that one's own perceptions are more true because they are more ethical, or more "reasonable".
Born under a "black moon."
Soma yields power to Ravi, giving the native stronger rational abilities and less well developed emotional perception. They will follow the path set by others and assert the moral righteousness of their group against others.
Personal identity is slightly weakened but ability to compromise and accept social direction is strengthened. This native generally gets along well with others in their group and has less emotional conflict in life, largely due to reduced sensitivity to others' feelings.
Pleasant and sensible person as a rule.
Emotional mandate toward political activism, unless Surya is compromised.
Chandra yuti Rahu
Emotionally urgently ambitious.
Chandra yuti Ketu = apathy = "Emotional Teflon"
Ketu + Chandra in Mesha
Ketu + Chandra in Vrishabha
Ketu + Chandra in Mithuna
Ketu + Chandra in Karkata
Ketu + Chandra in Simha

Ketu + Chandra in Kumbha
Ketu + Chandra in Meena
Chandra + chidakaraka (beheaded) Ketu = one is "cut off" from the emotions
Depending on the bhava of residence, the native is socially stable in character but weak (scattered) in parental (Chandra) commitments and easily manipulated by those more motivated to achieve a higher station in life (Rahu).
Males may be emotionally attracted to the emotionally comfortable and familiar prototype of the female, which resembles his own distant but functional mother.
Depending again very much on the rashi + bhava owned and occupied + incoming drishti, the over pattern of parenting and sheltering behaviors is that these are apprehended as a job in which one is largely disinterested but as this job provides some measure of social security (Chandra) one performs with reasonable efficiency.
Avoids acceptance of personal emotional responsibility for the consequences of one's own behavior. Disengaged within interpersonal relationships.
However, means no harm, unless Chandra yuti Ketu is dominated by another graha.
May try to ground oneself through the family, the folkways, the land and its history in the life cycle of a people (Chandra) or patriotic (Chandra) grasping at meaning via national identity. Ultimately these stage-props will fail to stabilize the native within either a family home or within a place.
However, if Chandra's lord or L-4 should be strong, the native may indeed find a place via the agency of those represented by the graha which is lord of Chandra or lord of bhava-4. As a general rule, this native depends on others to provide context for the meaning of one's life. Tendency to remain emotionally disconnected from the mother, the childhood home, and the place of birth, even while one can be physically presented and walking through the motions of folkways customs and social expectations.
The emotional identity is evasive, dispersed, slips through one's grasp. In the worst cases, one may become emotionally incoherent (Ketu = unglued, unstuck, incoherent)
Numbed to the reality (Ketu) of one's own emotional behavior (Chandra) and may quite ingenuously assert that there is no such thing as emotional reality. 'Every man for himself" is the rallying cry of this yoga.
Chandra is highly impressionable whereas Ketu is not coherent enough to receive an impression. Therefore the native operates emotionally within a Ketu-ized mindset. In this view, one is an independent agent making unstructured laissez-faire movements (Ketu) which have no consequences (Ketu)
the native is a master of calm objectivity, who does what one feels to be 'necessary under the circumstances'
the native 's social performance may be mystically charismatic but at the same time there is consistent disregard for social protocol and public behavior standards. One is a free spirit in positive contexts, but just as likely to accept criminal suggestions in negative contexts.
Emotional permeability . If there is to be an outcome of emotional integrity or accountability for the effects of one's parental, affectionate, protective, or patriotic actions -- some other graha, not Chandra, must provide it.
Chandra-Ketu yoga is generally unfavorable for matters of emotional stability and parenting, but may give excellent results for the practicing mystic.
This native seeks to surrender the emotional identity.
Psychological detachment from the birth-root culture, a neutral or apathetic awareness of the feelings of others, and disconnection from a pleasant but disengaged mother.
The parents, particularly the mother, often have some type of mental-emotional incapacity such as their own childhood trauma, drug/alcohol issues, depression, or frequent unexplained absences from the home (physical or emotional absence) which cause the native to feel abandoned.
he result is less a lack of trust than a deep, spiritual resignation to the fact that human love and nurturing is somewhat unreliable. Thus this yoga is highly auspicious for meditation and spiritual practices that focus on detachment.
the native has sacrificial tendencies and is easily drained emotionally. May attract predatory or deeply needy partners, whom the native cannot rescue -- but the native will sacrifice one's own well-being in the attempt.
If Soma is uttama/swakshetra or well supported by other graha, this yoga bodes well for late-life spiritual practice, or spiritual development through bhakti (emotion) during Ketu Mahadasha.
Puja to Shri Ketu (Ganapati) will be calming and grounding.
