When the Moon is located in the 6th house of a natal chart, its swift motion can bring frequent changes in jobs that the native follows. This placement creates the workaholic and the person that sticks to a daily routine, while is also probably the best for a cook.
The Moon is the celestial body responsible for food and its preparation; thus a native with the Earth’s satellite in the house of work will probably choose such an occupation. This placement does not have to do only with cooking, though. It can bring jobs connected with packaging food, grocery stores, hotels, catering, fast food and others. The Moon does not provide a lot of stability, and this individual will experience a lot of changes of workplaces. In a woman’s chart this could also signify other kinds of domestic work like cleaning other people’s houses, while also not working and being a housewife at home. The sixth house is also responsible for service towards others, and the Moon can signify that the native as a nurturing parent will sacrifice his work in order to serve his children at home. Such people usually love cleaning and do not considering it boring.
As the 6th house is ruling one’s health, the Moon’s presence can make the stomach of the native weak. The native may have problems with digestions, while with hard aspects there might be problems with ulcers. Generally, the native’s digestion system is directly linked to his emotions, ruled by the Moon, and so stress and worries can have a direct effect on it. The best remedy is something simple, yet many times difficult to achieve: the native needs to relax and take his problems less seriously. In case that the Moon has an adverse aspect with Mars, there may be possibilities of having an operation connected to the stomach; people with this placement should check their health frequently.
The Moon placed in the 6th can make a person hypochondriac, and when harsh aspects exist to Mercury or Uranus the native will have delusions of being sick and constantly complaining to others just to gain their attention. There is a quite big risk that his hysteric approach towards health issues will in the end create some, probably of different type than the ones he thinks he has. This situation can get even worse, if the native uses the problems that appear in order to justify himself towards his surroundings. In the end, the whole thing might end up as a self-fulfilling prophecy, with the native vampirizing the other’s sympathy and even showing affection towards his sickness. An adversely aspected Moon can become even affectionate to such kind of a problem.
The sixth house is ruling one’s routines, and this natal placement indicates a person who is very fond of his own. These natives have their own daily rituals and follow them. They usually wake up at the same time in the morning and also sleep at the same time in the night. They like building nutrition schedules and will probably follow some special diet. There are even big possibilities that their job will be the one of a dietician. In their job they are workaholics, and this might be an archetype they caught from their mother. The 6th house indicates a mother who was a great housekeeper, making the native’s home functioning as a clock and always doing something. This is copied by the small child and is used later in his life subconsciously.
Some issues that a native with such a 6th house Moon should be careful about is his depressive tendencies. The Moon in this house does not indicate chronic depression, but there will be definitely some days per month when the native will be feeling low. These days are connected with the phases of the Moon, and if the native researches possible patterns that reappear he will understand how it functions, while even be able to battle it. In case that the Moon has difficult aspects with Saturn, Mars or Uranus, the native should be more careful about his mental health as these can be indicators of bipolar disorder or other types of mental problems.
In addition, when someone has the Moon placed in the 6th there can be proneness to be used by his co-workers. The native is very hard-working, which is observed by the others and so they tend to procrastinate and let the biggest amount of work fall on his shoulders. In case you have this natal placement and understand that you are being used, stop feeling so affectionate about your job and become a little bit fairer towards yourself. It is not only the co-worker’s fault, it is also yours that you allow him do that. Worry a little bit more about your own health; it is more important than the prosperity of your employer. It is your stomach that will have problems, not your employers’, if you are in a constant stress!
