How to analyze the mental health of a native?

By S N Rao

Mental capabilities of a man like understanding, intelligence and analytic powers differentiate him from animals. The power of understanding helps in learning and power of analysis/discrimination helps in developing innovating techniques and problem solving skills. The purpose of the human beings can only be achieved if they have mental capabilities. The brain is the part of the body which provides fruition of mental capabilities. Therefore the brain, which is ruled by the first house and the sign Aries, is the most important functional part of the human body. The power of understanding is governed by the strength of the third and fourth house and the Moon. The intelligence is governed by the fifth house and the Sun and the power of analysis/discrimination is governed by the strength of the planet Mercury.

Vedic Astrology has a matured system of judgment of horoscopes, the divisional charts and the ” dasha ” system which all help in providing a good preview and overview of different aspects of life. In Vedic astrology, MOON signifies mind and MERCURY stands for intellect and logic. JUPITER represents maturity and wisdom. If these three are afflicted in the horoscope, the risk of having mental illness increases. The fifth house of the horoscope, representing logic, thinking and fascination, plays a pivotal role in judging mental disorders. Problems w.r.t logic or thinking process of the mind are observed if the fifth house and the fifth lord of the horoscope is afflicted.

The weakness of / and affliction to the Lagna, the third, fourth and fifth houses, the Moon, the Sun and Mercury retard the growth of the mental capabilities and cause suffering to a native by denying the power of learning, acquiring intelligence and doing analytical work during the sub-period of weak and afflicted significators. The weakness of planets/houses only delays and makes them more vulnerable to natal and transit afflictions. Whereas affliction tries to destroy, deny and cause sufferings to their significations. On the functional and/or physical side, it causes diseases like epilepsy, brain hemorrhage, hydrocephalus, etc.

Similarly the MOON gets afflicted if it receives the aspects of malefic planets or is associated with malefic planets. And if it gets hemmed between malefic planets then the affliction is likely to increase. Again if the Moon comes in the 6th, 8th or 12th house, then there are chances of the native being a lunatic.

The type and degree of planet afflicting the Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and the 5th house holds the key in evaluating the level of mental issues. Afflictions are in all the parameters, need of opinion of a psychiatrist may arise.

If Moon is afflicted with effects of SUN, the effected person loses temper quickly, and may become quarrelsome. If Moon is afflicted by MARS, the person may become short tempered, overtly aggressive and violent. And if the Moon is afflicted with SATURN, signs of acute mental depression may arise.

If Moon is afflicted with Rahu and Ketu more complications arise. If its affliction of RAHU then the person may be cunning in his thoughts and deeds and might suffer from schizophrenia and phobias. On the other hand affliction with KETU may produce irrational suspiciousness in a person and may make him maniac.

The positioning of RAHU and the Moon in the LAGNA malefic planets in the TRINES is called PISCHAACHA GRASTA YOGA, meaning a combination in which the mind is overtaken by the spirits. This affliction also yields to phobias, a state also seen in affliction of Moon by RAHU and KETU at close degrees. The problem gets worst if MERCURY, JUPITER and the 5th house and the 5th lord are also afflicted.

Ideal mental health is seen when MOON, MERCURY, JUPITER and the 5th lord are well-positioned and without affliction. Similarly strong 5th house and benefic associations and aspects on these planets also signifies good mental health.

Vedic astrology emphasizes the role of KARMA (deeds) of past and present on the health of a person. Most of the mental problems of people are because of KARMIC issues and if proper recommended measures are taken to counter these issues then obviously the person gets benefits.
