Dasha ruler: Ketu

Moon in Moola : the person has pride, is respectable, wealthy, happy, not mischievous, fixed in mind, and enjoys the senses.
Attributes : Spread from 0’00” to 13’20” Dhanu Rashi, the Lord is Jupiter (Guru). It also means the ‘opposite’ or ‘reverse’. Moola is not one of the good stars which is evident from the fact that the Deity isAlakshmi i.e. God of ill luck. Moola signifies roots, that is to say, everything of a basic nature. Its motion is finite and limited. It does not go beyond its narrow orbit. Old servant, pedlar of seeds, physician administering herbal seed remedies – every such thing is determined from this star. The Moola native looks into scientific, literary, philosophic and other basic subjects.
Mortgage and Mortgaged property are governed by this star and its horizon is not rural but urban.
