The position of Planet Moon in the sixth house bestows both good and bad results. Its results would depend upon benefic or malefic conjunction & aspect and ownership of houses.

The moon in the sixth house gives uncontrollable emotions. If malefics afflict the Moon then the native would indulge in bad deeds. He would be quarrelsome and he may have many enemies.  Due to affliction, the native has to face health issues which may affect him mentally.

If the moon is in conjunction with Rahu or Ketu then the native may face mental disorder problems in bad planetary periods (Dasha & Antardasha). He may have to face depression at some point of time. There would be emotional ups and downs.
