Let’s take a look at those things which matter here –
Moon - It represents Mind, Emotions, Mother, Local Government, Peace of Mind, Home Environment, Water, Milk etc.
For Aries Ascendant people, Moon rules the 4th house of chart with its sign Cancer. So, let’s look at 4th house and Cancer too.
4th house - It represents your home, home environment, homeland, mother, nourishment, childhood friends, peace of mind, conveniences, intuition etc.
Cancer - It is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's care, Emotions and Nourishment etc. Cancer's lord is Moon.
What will Moon do in Aspect? – Now, Moon can be sitting in any house of chart for an Aries Ascendant person.1st of all, Moon will take the energy of house of chart, it rules with Cancer sign, and take it to the house where it sits. Then from the house it sits, it will throw its aspect on the 7th house from its place. As Moon represents Emotions, Mind, Care and Motherhood, Moon's aspect on a house will show where person wants to feel emotionally connected to the things which it rules with its sign Cancer.
Things which I still can’t cover – Although, I am trying to make it a detailed analysis of planetary aspects but I still can’t cover few things like dignity of planet involved, like Moon conjunct with other planets, if there are planets in 7th house from Moon where it aspects in which case those planets will aspect back at Moon and impact it, and planets aspecting Moon from other houses. That’s why, no matter how detailed analysis you do in Astrology, there are still few things uncovered and that just shows the limits of Human Efforts.
Now, let’s see the meaning and impact of Moon's aspect through different houses for Aries Ascendant people.
Moon in 1st house – Moon will be in Aries here. Moon will take the energy of 4th house to 1st house. It means person will be very much home, family and mother oriented. Person will be focused on himself as 1st house is about self. But then Sun will also aspect 7th house of Other People, Masses and Marriage. It shows that person will be inclined to emotionally connect with other people/masses or spouse on matters related with 4th house. As Moon, 4th house and Cancer all relate to emotions, it shows a person too emotional about relation/partner and want to connect with partner like a Mother, i.e. person wants to take care of partner or other people.
Moon in 2nd house – Here, Moon gets exalted in Taurus. It shows someone who gains lots of wealth & assets from 4th house related matters, specially Mother. Then Moon aspects 8th house, where they want to emotionally connect and nurture their marriage and in-laws. This is one of the best position, hence nothing much to say.
Moon in 3rd house – Moon is in Gemini here. Business Oriented and constantly working mind. 4th house matters become help in creating Business. Business may be related with Travelling, Teaching or Communication. As Moon aspects the 9th house, it shows that for the purpose of their business or teaching, their mind gravitates towards higher learning and education. Like, they can do post grad degrees in Business Studies for growth of their Business.
Moon in 4th house – Here, Moon is in own sign. It shows a very mother-like, emotional and caring person. This person is totally surrendered towards home and mother. With aspect on 10th house, it shows that person wants to nourish and take care of people at work like a mother. That's why, these people normally become Nurse or Doctors. Their mind is always into nourishing others at work.
Moon in 5th house – This shows a person whose mind is totally into children and education. This person might be teaching from his home. It is also a very creative mind. Moon's aspect on 11th house shows that mind gravitates and is emotionally inclined towards working for social welfare through 5th house related matters. It also gives an emotional relation with children, lover or elder sibling.
Moon in 6th house – Moon is in Virgo here. This shows a mind which constantly feels restricted due to obstacles. 4th house related matters may receive some obstacles, disputes or litigation. Either Mother or Person himself is a Healer or Mother suffers through illness/diseases etc. Moon's aspect on 12th house shows that person seeks divine/spiritual help to go through obstacles of life.
Moon in 7th house – Here, Moon is in Libra. Mind is totally gravitated towards relations/other people and masses. Again a Business Oriented Mind and Business may be of things related to 4th house. Moon's aspect back on 1st house shows that person desires a spouse who can nourish and take care of him like a Mother. Person wants to connect with himself through spouse/other people.
Moon in 8th house – Moon is debilitated here. It is also Moon's Marana Karaka position. This shows that condition of 4th house related matters, i.e. home or mother, go through sudden events & changes. Mind feels under constant pressure or fear of upcoming sudden events. Due to this, Moon's aspect on 2nd house of Family & Wealth shows person seeks help by emotionally connecting to family and to feel secured with wealth against sudden events & ups/downs of life. This can be a troublesome position for Moon but if person gets involved in Occult and Meditation, it can be a blessing in disguise.
Moon in 9th house – Moon is in Sagittarius here. Mother becomes Guru here or person treats his Teachers/Gurus like his Mother. Person is all about learning the higher stuff like Philosophy, Religion or in getting post-grad degrees in his stream of education. With Moon's aspect on 3rd house, it shows an emotional way of communicating/teaching or counselling. They nurture people through their speech. Plus it gives good emotional relation with siblings.
Moon in 10th house – Moon is in Capricorn here. This shows that Mother is taking up the responsibilities of Father too. Person is emotionally attached to Father but Father is very strict or keeps a distant relation with native. As Moon is in Saturn ruled sign, emotions feel restricted, i.e. person is unable to express his emotions to Father due to strictness. Then due to Moon's aspect on 4th house, person seeks love and emotional care from Mother and home only. So, Mother becomes very important here.
Moon in 11th house – Moon is in Aquarius, again ruled by Saturn & Rahu. This shows a Scientific Mind. 4th house related matters like Home and Mother become reason behind person's income. But it also shows that personmay need to leave his mother or home in order to make his earnings. Person is emotional about elder siblings and friends but rarely finds the feelings reciprocated. Moon's aspect on 5th house shows that person is emotionally inclined towards his education, creativity and children. So, when he feels repulsive from friends and siblings, mind moves towards Children, Lover or Creativity.
Moon in 12th house – Moon is in Pisces here, a Spiritual Mind. Here, Mother becomes a source of spirituality. At the same time, mind is highly imaginative and lives in other world. They are more successful in Foreign Lands. With Moon's aspect on 6th house, it shows that they like to emotionally connect & nurture people who are facing obstacles & disputes in their life and would like to help/nurture them with their spiritual knowledge and imaginative thinking. In some cases, it also shows someone in medical field.
So, this is a basic idea of how Moon's aspect will work in different houses for Aries Ascendant people. Emotions and Care will remain factors with Moon, no matter it is exalted or debilitated. Exalted Moon means a nurturing & caring emotions whereas Debilitated Moon means Controlling Emotions.
