Depression Has A Different Meaning In Astrology

Updated: Dec 6, 2019

What is depression?

Depression is a state of mind or can say a sick mind. Depression gives a stressful life. In common life we can say one gets depression because of sudden shock or a person couldn’t get what he/ she wants. But in astrology reasons are different because some combination of planets should be present in the horoscope. This disease is common nowadays. Depression brings negativity in life. A depressed person can commit suicide also.

In horoscope basically 1st house, 4th house, 5th house, moon, and Mercury should be afflicted. Moon is our emotions. Mercury gives the ability to think because it represents our brain. 4th house represents our mind and the fifth house represents our brain. If all these are afflicted by malefic planets Saturn, Rahu and Mars one can get depression.

But the role of the moon is very important in the case of depression because the moon represents our conscious mind. The conjunction of Saturn and moon create ” vish- dosh ” that is not good for mental peace. Actually this yoga is the main reason for depression. So the moon should not affiliate. The conjunction of the moon and Mercury gives less intelligence.

So according to the astrology, the reasons for depression are:—-

· If the moon, forth lord and fourth house are afflicted by Saturn and Rahu, Ketu.

· If the moon is debilitated and aspected by Saturn or in the axis of Rahu and Ketu.

· If Mercury, fifth house and fifth lord is afflicted by Mars, Saturn, and Rahu, Ketu.

· “Kemdrum – Yoga ” or alone moon in the horoscope is also a reason for depression.

If the moon is hemmed between two malefic planets and Mercury is in the axis of Rahu and Ketu.
