I heard several times that according to Jyotish, the moon is related to manas.

Which scripture talks about it? Did any scripture tell about the relation in detail?

    We often hear about this and this is also an interesting subject to explore since a lot of things depend upon our mental state. Indeed a nice question.But are you interested in moons effect on our mind and mental state at the time of birth , the effect of which remains for entire life. Or it's day to day effect which changes according to phases? Apr 6, 2021 at 5:13
  • @SwiftPushkar Actually, about any type of relationship... The main intention is to know the name of scripture that deals in detail...

Ṛṣi Parāśāra in Bṛhat Parāśāra Hora Śāstra says,

The Sun is the soul of all. The Moon is the mind. Mars is one's strength. Mercury is speech-giver while Jupiter confers Knowledge and happiness. Venus governs semen (potency) while Saturn denotes grief. 3-12/13


Rig Veda 10.19.13.:

candramā manaso jātaś.


"The Moon was born from his (Veda Purusha's) mind."

As moon was born from the mind of the Veda Purusha, it represents the mind (Manas).

I hope this clarifies your queries.
