There is a great need of being critical, analytical and focused on details of all the tasks they take at hand, but the problem here is the mind is constantly involved with obstacles and issues of others and arrangement disagreements. There would be great conflicts with the mother if Moon is a bad sign, the mother might become the enemy psychologically due to her being the obstacle in obtaining mental balance.

Since 7th is 10th from the 10th, the career can also involve things related to moon like medical, nursing, import export, sea, female products, mind therapist, psychologist, restaurant owner, even a public servant since 7th house is the house of other people and Moon represents local government. Since 7th house is originally ruled by Libra, Moon here needs a creative aspect in their relationship, trade and work. They usually make business decision emotionally rather than logically unless Moon is in the sign of Virgo or Capricorn. The mother herself could be a business woman, diplomat for the government or involved in father's business. But mainly the native's emotional balance comes when they are in company of others.
8.Moon in the 8th house- This is mostly a bad placement for the moon, as it makes the native’s mother addicted to drugs, and alcohol, which also damages the relationship with the mother. This can also cause depression and psychosis in a person, but only in small cases, but this placement makes a person a mystic as well, as the mind is submerged in the underground world. People can do well in mining and oil industry in this house as they like to dig deep into the matter of things and business, especially detective. The 8th house deals with occult, things buried underground, secrets we hold, accidents and sudden events, and since Moon is a soft and gentle planet, it finds it very hard to deal with some of the most dramatic ups & downs of life that comes the native way, but there is also tremendous interest in the occult, the native can have healing power, psychic powers and power to foretell the future, this is why a good astrologer can have such position in D1 or D9 chart. If Moon is in the 4th pada of any nakshatra there would great deep rooted issues with the mother. Either the native was abandoned by the mother or there is lack of nourishment from the mother due to her psychological problems. But, if Moon is exalted or in its own sign of Cancer, then mother might have been a doctor, in medicine, healer and helped the native out of many dramatic events. But, there are always sexual secrets with the native. Either the native is over sexed and desired sex all the time or there might be sexual abuse in early childhood, especially in nakshatra of Rahu and Mars.
9.Moon in the 9th house- In 9th house moon makes a person be very religious, than spiritual. The native will also take long pilgrimage and could become a good teacher. This gives high status in life, education and work if situated well. These people usually make good professors at college, especially in the subject of philosophy. 9th house represents your teachers, gurus, teaching of your father, higher learning, philosophy, belief system and religion, this why Moon (the mind) is always inclined towards such things. The person would be quite religious, law-abiding, takes lots of interest in studying higher philosophical or religious text and the mother herself would be involved in religion or religious duty all throughout her life. The mind feels balanced when it's in presence of teacher or people who can teach things to the native that are of higher calling.

But, if Moon is debilitated then the native would be find obsession with one's religion that may lead to a demanded mind, a mind that might only see things as in black & white. The native might think his or her religion is the only one that should be followed and they would kill under the name of God. If Rahu is with Moon then the person would adapt to a foreign culture or foreign religion.
10.Mooni n the 10th house- This position is good for all planets, and in the 10th house moon gives a career in the medical field or hotel business to most of the people, especially if it’s in the sign of cancer, Libra or Pisces. A female with tenth house moon can becomes some of the best nurses. 10th house isn't just about career, it's actually about the ups & downs in career. However, the true picture of the career is seen from the 7th house which is 10th from the 10th, so it's the career of the career house. But, Moon becomes bright and mystical in 10th house. Moon in Vedic Astrology also represents local government like state government, city government while Sun is the federal government, so Moon being in the 10th house can show someone who works in a local government, is very soft and gentle in their professional life and they usually make emotional decision regarding work and career. Besides being some of the best nurses, Moon also represents imagination, music and creativity, while in the 10th house it can also show a singer or artist with lot of fame, but one has to see if the moon was waning or waxing during time of birth. Waxing moon is benefic while Waning moon is malefic. But, Moon can show ups & downs in career due to it ruling the tides of the ocean, and like the tides, it will make the house go up & down.
11.Moon in the 11th house- Another best position for the moon when placed in the 11th house of gains like for Cancer ascendants. In this position the native has lots of female friends, easy gains, easy gains of property and assets.

These folks love making new friends, and making new connection, because through that they learn, and they grow as a human being, including their mind. They are regular party goers, fund raiser organizers, and in finance. The mother could have been a PR agent herself, or very social house wife who had regular parties at her place. But, if Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, then the native would be more scientific and worldly in their approach and will tend to define everything through modern scientific methods. They are also a bit eccentric as they run by the beat of their own drums. Usually this Moon needs to read a lot and maintain up to date information of their field in order for them to feel balanced. This placement also gives great gains through mother, children and artistic pursuits. Even though 100% of the population has hopes & wishes for themselves, Moon in the 11th house usually gets their wishes and hopes fulfilled due to it being the house of gains and income. 11th house is also the most important upachaya house in terms of wealth and gains.
12.Moon in the 12th house- This position gives birth to very talented writers, healers, and spiritual personalities, the moon here gives permanent settlement into foreign lands, far from home; usually a person crosses the sea since moon represents water. This gives a very spiritual mother, as the mother becomes a very strong figure in the native’s life. This also gives huge profits from far off lands as well. In this position the moon gives lots of hidden talent and powers to the native, with a very deep and creative mind. 12th house is solitude and isolation, and wherever moon is placed one needs their mental balance through that house, so such folks are always in need for me time or lone time. They have to extract themselves from the public or crowd of people often to re-energize their mind and soul. The mind is always involved in esoteric things like astrology, aliens, ufo, meditation and spirituality. The mother herself would be very spiritual would be a world traveler. One thing to watch out for is occasional depression with this moon especially when Saturn is transiting through it or aspects through transit, because there is great pressure to work and take on responsibility while moon in 12th house folks needs to retrieve themselves from the world and would rather make their income from an isolated place.
