Abstract: The biological interactions of organisms with the astral system are inherited through ages. Vedic Astrology depends on moon movement, focuses only on visible planets and utilize only traditional rulerships whereas, Western astrology depends on sun movement, focuses on all major planets such as Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and attribute rulership based on the Zodiac signs and planetary positions. Though both the system differs in origin and certain areas, both these types of astrology is used to relieve problems in human life and helps in making life happy. Sages, Saints, Hermits, Acharyas and Astrologers of the past have recommended a lot of remedies to ward off the malefic effects of the planets either by donating articles associated with the planet, recite the mantras, wear the precious stones, wearing assigned roots of plants in right arm or by planting prescribed planets associated symbolic plants or by consuming them. There are innumerable astrologically proven, remedial plants and herbs available in the market. However, there is a lack of documentation of evidence or background information, in a simple and easy to understand way that is relatable to current scientific methodologies. This article is a first attempt to explore the remedial plants of moon mentioned in Vedic and Western astrology system which in turn decipher the nuances behind this relationship of moon and its associated remedial plants. 90 plants are used as remedial plants for moon.
