But before that, it is essential to know what exactly is a mental illness. And the kind of mental illness, plus the prime reasons behind it.
This is an imbalanced state of mind. Where a person has to face a disorder that affects his mood, behavior, and decision making.
The concern is that while physical abnormalities can be seen to be appropriately treated. But mental illnesses are kept under wraps, mostly due to the social stigma attached to them. This makes diagnosing and treating such illnesses more complex and critical. Let’s understand the various kinds of mental illness.
It’s very important to know the kind of mental illness. As in medical astrology, the 12 signs, and planetary placement signifies certain diseases. Every mental disorder will have different symptoms, onset, and severity.
Vedic Astrology provides us a solution in this direction, where we can know if there could be a mental disorder that we should be cautious of, thus, allowing us to take proper precautions and explore effective treatments to curb the ailment.
The State of imbalanced Mind, Body, and Intellect. is the main reason. And this can further be checked through childhood experiences, traumatic experiences, and many times it can be due to genetics or heredity.
The most important planets that are responsible for your mental illness are as follows:
Moon: The position and strength of the Moon, play a significant role to see the mental status of a person. So firstly you need to understand what is a balanced moon and the imbalanced moon.
Imbalanced Moon: Moon represents the water, and 70% of our body consists of water. Thus if Moon is weak it will definitely affect the fluid in your body, This will result in mood swings, over-sensitive, sadness, and anger issues.
If Moon is balanced it means the person knows the art to stay in a joyful mood. He is emotionally very strong and also has good imaginative and intuitive skills.
Let’s find out the astrological combinations in a horoscope, due to which Moon gets afflicted. Firstly you need to see the position of Moon in the Lagna Chart, if there is any relation with the 6th 8th, and 12th lord then Moon becomes weak. And due to this, you will have to face some mental issues.
Moon is afflicted by Saturn. As we know Saturn is a dry planet, and if the moon is PAC (posited, conjunct or aspected) by Saturn, then it will affect the fluids in your body, and you will be prone to depression and stress.
Moon PAC with Rahu gives a lot of problems. Rahu is a planet with no physical body of its own. So it shows things which are not present. This can give you diseases like Phobias, Hallucinations, Schizophrenia, anxiety disorder, low self-esteem, and depression. This can even make the person narcissists or sociopaths.
If Moon is in Paapakartari, which means that malefic planets on both sides of the moon. For example: if Moon is in the 10th house and there is Saturn in the 11th house and mars in the 9th house.
Therefore Moon is hemmed between malefic planets. Kemadruma yoga, when there are no planets on either side of the moon When there is no planet in the 2nd or the 12th from the moon.
This results in restlessness, one might face loneliness or no support system. The debilitated Moon, Amavasya Moon birth, and Waning Moon birth also give mental disorders.
In Vedic Astrology Mercury signifies the mind and rules the mental stimulation of a person. It controls the nervous system in the body. So if Mercury is good in your horoscope, then you will be very clever, creative, and a deep thinker. But if it is weak or afflicted then it can give you erratic behavior. The native might even suffer from depression, fickle mindedness, and nervousness.
Now let’s find out the astrological combinations in a horoscope due to which Mercury gets afflicted and give bad results.
Firstly we need to see the position of Mercury in the Lagna chart if there is any relation with the 6th 8th and 12th houses then Mercury becomes weak. And due to this, you will have to face some mental issues. Next affliction to Mercury is given Moon, Rahu, and Ketu debilitated and functional malefic in the chart.
If Rahu is PAC with Mercury then it will give you cloudiness in your mind. It can give you phobia or any kind of addiction. The reason is that Rahu does not have a physical body, therefore he is never content, and it explodes the energy of the conjunct planet and it’s Rashi lord. Hence an obsessive planet Rahu with Mercury, in fact, needs direction. This conjunction spoils Mercury completely and that results in severe mental illness.
In such a case, a person can face disorders like Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), severe anxiety, depression, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), or phobia. This affects your daily lives and hampers your mental growth along with the proper functioning of the brain.
The combination of the Moon with Mercury can give illness like epilepsy. Also, the position of Mercury in the Navamsha chart can also indicate the real strength of the planet.
If Mercury is afflicted in both Lagna, Navamsha chart, and also if in the nakshatra of its enemy planet, then surely the person will have strange and unpredictable behavior. He might lose temper and behave erratically. Also, he will be in habit of blaming himself, anger issues, over-sensitive, will have suicidal thoughts, and lack of confidence.
Jupiter is the Karaka of knowledge and wisdom in the horoscope. If Jupiter is benefic and strong in the chart, then it’s a blessing. This represents your intelligence, decision making, and also your values and principles. It also makes you spiritually inclined, a learned person, and financially very strong.
But if Jupiter is weak then it will make you take wrong decisions, or have misjudgments, lack of concentration, and self-confidence Consequently it will ruin your physical as well as mental health.
Let’s discuss the Astrological combinations that cause afflictions to the most benefic planet, Jupiter.
The first step to check Jupiter is to see the position of Jupiter and the house lordship. This will decide the role allotted to this planet. So if Jupiter has the lordship of the 6th 8th and 12th house, then it becomes the functional malefic in the horoscope.
This gives bad results in Lagna Chart, but this position has to be rechecked in the Navamsha chart. Therefore if a relation with 6th 8th and 12th lords then Jupiter gives bad results. It will create mental chaos in your mind.
The first sign of weak Jupiter is that the person is not able to think openly or intelligently. It will follow the wrong ways to get fortune and happiness.
It creates dizziness in the mind. There is a constant conflict between wisdom and weak emotions.
This eventually results in a weak, personality, with a conflicted mind, and causing stress in work or relationships.
If Jupiter is strong then it gives a healthy body and a very strong intellect. They take decisions considering the pros and cons and have a strong aura. They are definitely very knowledgeable in every sector.
Jupiter is considered the solution or cure giver, so if with Rahu, Ketu, and Saturn, or debilitated in Capricorn, and has the lordship of 6th 8th and 12th house, then it can surely give some mental illness.
The severity of the disease depends on the level of affliction. If other planets also get involved and are active in Mahadasha or Antardasha then it will make the disease chronic.
Jupiter is the Karaka of good health and presence of mind. Hence if Jupiter is afflicted, then the chances of recovery become dim, and severity increases.
This is a planet of growth, it will expand the disease and make the condition of the person worst.
Vedic astrology has highlighted the main houses of severe mental illness. Let’s discuss the most important houses to check the mental disorder of a person.
The first importance is given to the Aries sign and 1st house, as this is the sign which represents the brain, intelligence, and head region. Sun and Mars are the karaka of this house. Therefore if afflictions to this sign and karakas, it means the Lagna is afflicted. This can result in mental illness.
The third house is considered to check the lower mind of an individual. Since Mercury is the 3rd lord of the natural zodiac, so the communication, decision making, and even the way you perceive things.
If 3rd lord is related to disease houses or afflicted, then the person has a sluggish mind. This kind of mind becomes prone to all kinds of mental diseases.
Next, you see the status of the Cancer sign, and the 4th house, this is the house of comfort and happiness. Check the karaka Moon and Mercury. These planets depict your power of analysis and discrimination of the person.
And finally the most important 5th house, 5th lord and karaka Jupiter. This analysis will indicate your intelligence, wisdom, and analytical skills.
Therefore afflictions in this house and its lord will result in depression, mental instability and if not treated timely it can turn into acute mental illness.
Hence I would suggest that before jumping to the disease of mental illness, it’s very essential to check all the combinations in Lagna Chart, Navamsha Chart, and also see the Saptavimshamsha Chart.
The most important factor is the timeline, the running Mahadasha, and Antardasha. Then you have to check the transit results of the weak planets.
While analyzing a horoscope, the timeline becomes very significant. You might see bad combinations in the chart but at times Mahadasha of the disease giving planet does not come in the person’s lifetime. So first you need to see the planet that will give illness and then the Dasha and transits.
For example, if Saturn is the main planet that gives illness, but the person is born in Mercury Dasha. In this case, Saturn Mahadasha will not come. Now it can come at Antardasha Level. This means the illness will be for a short period.
Let me tell you about Transits in Astrology, though this is a vast subject, I will explain in brief. Transit is the current planet’s position. All the nine planets move at a certain pace, so based on that they change signs.
For example, if Mercury Dasha is running, then you have to check what sign and the constellation Mercury is advancing in the present date, and time. This position in your chart will give good or bad results.
To illustrate some of the above Astrological Significators of Mental Illness, let me explain a case study, who recently committed suicide due to acute depression.
While suggesting remedies for mental illness, the first remedy should be given to pacify Moon. If Moon is weak you should chant the Shivji mantra Om Namah Shivaya. Also, donate milk and water in the temple, wear silver and pearl.
For Mercury, you should chant the Vishnu Bhagwan mantra, Om Namah Narayana. And donate green pulses in the temple, give greens to the cow, and also give stationary to young children.
The best remedy for Jupiter is to visit the temple on Thursdays and give fruits or sweets to the priest. Also, chant the Vishnu Bhagwan mantra.
Above all, I will suggest doing Pranayama and Meditations on an everyday basis. Physical exercise should be added to the routine. It is better if you talk to someone as shutting down and going in your own shell can worsen the situation.
