Before the start of modern medical science, in ancient times, doctors were encouraged to know about astrology and its relevance to various diseases apart from running the medicines on different lunar days and different planetary days. Medical Vedic Astrology is the oldest Medical Science that connects multiple body parts, disease, and symptoms under the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu, and the twelve astrological zodiac symbols and 27 different Nakshatra.

Insomnia is a sleep disorder caused by various medical conditions like: Difficulty in falling asleep, feeling tired after waking, waking up often during the night, Irritability, Loss of memory, etc. Planets, houses, and Nakshatra related to the sleeping disorder as mentioned below: 

Planet Moon and Insomnia:

Moon is the most important planet in Vedic Astrology as it directly impacts all human beings. It significates our minds and emotions. Moon is the planet responsible for our sleep, as sleep connects with our state of mind and emotions. If the moon is weak in the birth chart, then individuals may cause slipping problems irrespective of the strength and position of the other eight planets.

Moon’s position in the signs of Saturn, the influence of Saturn or Nodes on the Moon, the influence of eighth house lord on the Moon, or the placement of Moon in the eighth house also gives malefic effects to our emotions, mind and mental stability. Moon’s placement or relationship with the twelfth house may also cause problems in sleeping; however, this may be more possible when other relevant aspects are also disturbed. 

Houses Responsible for Insomnia:

Twelfth house – 12th house is the house of losses, any planet placed in the 12th house losses its strength. The twelfth house also signifies our sleep and dreams. If the twelfth house is strong in the horoscope, then it will ensure good and sound sleep, whereas a week or disturbed twelfth house gives the reverse results. 

First house – First house signifies Head, Brain, Mind, Physical Body, Headaches. Therefore, a solid first house and its lord bless the native with a solid body and mind. Whereas if the lord of the first house is debilitated or in conjunction with malefic may cause sleep disorders. The placement of the 8th house lord on the first house or first house lord placed in the 8th house gives sleeping problems.

Rashi & Nakshatra Responsible for Insomnia

Cancer or Karka Rashi and Pieces or Meena Rashi in the zodiac is naturally responsible for our sleep because cancer is related to Moon, and the 12th sign is associated with the 12th house. If these two signs are afflicted in the horoscope, the person has Insomnia.

Bharni Nakshatra represents our brain in Vedic astrology. The placement of Rahu, Ketu, or any other malefic planets in this Nakshatra may cause several issues related to brain and sleep. 

Remedies for Insomnia/Sleep Disorders:

If we imbalance the planetary energy in a birth chart, we face difficulties and problems in life. Therefore, we need to balance out the energy. This is a scientific and logical way how astrological remedies work out to balance the different planet’s energy. Different remedies are available in our Vedic scriptures, mainly Mantra, Yantra charity, fasting, and wearing different gemstones.

In case of Insomnia, we have to do the following remedies to get the benefits within 45 days:


Om Shram Sharim Shrom Sah Chandrmasya Namha.||

A person should chant the above-mentioned mantra 108 times for 45 days, and chanting should be done after the sunset, as Moon is effective and powerful during the night.


Fasting and donation are other best remedies. If any person faces malefic results of Moon, individuals can donate Milk or any white color item like silver, pearl, sugar, etc., and keep fasting every Monday for at least 11 weeks. 


As per our different Vedic Scriptures, Yantra is a source of abundant energy. Using Yantra, we can balance this energy system and get the blessings of universal energy. Every Yantra is associated with some planets, deities, or specific purposes. If a plant is giving inauspicious results in our life, we can use Yantra associated with that planet. Worshiping, meditating, or wearing Yantra helps to bring in lots of health, wealth, and happiness in your lives.

Moon Yantra is the best remedy in case of insomnia. You can draw this Yantra on plain white paper and place it in the North-West corner of your bedroom.
