Ayurveda, Rasa Dhatu, and the Moon

Ayurveda, Rasa Dhatu, and the Moon : The Moon’s rulership over the water element in the body (Kapha dosha) brings its influence to Plasma (Rasa dhatu) or the basic bodily fluid as well.

A strong Moon provides good hydration to the body, which is the main function of the plasma tissue. Classical Vedic astrology also takes the planet Mercury into consideration because of its association with the skin (which plasma is connected to).

An afflicted Mercury can lead to skin diseases, which often arise from a sensitive mind and nervous system.
