Analysing Muhurta, Chandra in Dhanu (Sagittarius) gives bad Chandrabala if one's Janma Rashi (disposition of Chandra in certain sign at birth time) is Karkata (Cancer), Vrishabha (Taurus) or Makara (Capricorn). Also being in Dhanu, Chandra makes consciousness more creative, clear in its intentions and being ruled by Guru (Jupiter) incites to dharmic and spiritual activity.
