Depression in today’s world has become a very common problem. It exists across different age groups. Let’s understand first – what is depression. It is a state of mind in which a person does not feel good and happy; despite having everything in life feelings of aloofness, disappointment and discontentment abound. The problem of depression is widely spread among people and yet this is the most misunderstood concept too.
Many astrology experts suggest that the tendency of suffering from depression can be easily found in an individual’s horoscope. According to Vedic Astrology, Moon plays a very significant role in governing our emotions. As per astrological science, ‘Mind’ is represented by the planet Moon. Combination of Moon with other planets can cause mental illness. For example, Moon with Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu may lead to depression. Debilitated Moon, Mercury and Jupiter can often cause a mental imbalance. Owing to the specific position of planets and stars in one’s astrological chart, the person may suffer from weakness of mind or willpower and that often and very easily leads to mental breakdown and depression.
One must understand that depression is NOT when you feel slightly stressed out, angry, disappointed or lonely. These down feelings might come and go at any point of time. Whereas depression is a persistent state of mind where one is just unable to feel hope and happiness no matter what situations are there in one’s life. Depression is anti-life. It presents existential crisis. A depressed person gradually loses all interest in living life and all his thoughts circle around the pointlessness of human existence, ultimately leading to suicide.
Depression starts gradually. This state of mind slowly starts building up paving path to completely damaged state of mind. Most individuals choose to ignore the early signs of depression because many simply do not know the symptoms of Depression.
Following is the list of early signs of Depression:
With increasing time, these symptoms become more frequent and intense. Result is insanity and suicide.
When Moon comes in conjunction with Saturn, it creates mental rift and tension. Saturn is the planet of fear and limitation. It brings a sense of aloofness to the bearer. Whereas Moon stands for peace of mind and craves mental happiness, Saturn creates such situation in life that causes you to loose peace of mind and mental balance. Therefore the Saturn and Moon combination brings feelings of emotional heaviness; it makes one’s mind dull and devoid of lightness.
Apart from Saturn, Ketu is the key indicator of depression. When Moon is sitting in conjunction with Ketu, this may give rise to mental imbalance and depressive state of mind. Ketu is the south node of the Moon. Ketu represents our subconscious realm. It is the headless body that stands for spirituality, nothingness and complete diversion from materialistic tendencies. Moon sitting in conjunction with planets in sixth, eighth and twelfth house makes an individual more prone to frequent low moods and depression.
Another indicator for depression in one’s chart is specific Nakshatras where Moon is not happy. For example, Ashlesha nakshatra. This nakshatra falls in Moon’s own sign Cancer and creates mental and emotional turbulence. Another Nakshatra is Vishakha Nakshatra which causes jealousy and envy in a person leading to loss of mental peace.
In order to cure depression, it is of utmost importance that your Moon should be balanced. Since Moon represents our emotions it is imperative that Moon should be happy in its position. These are the following astrological remedies that will help you combat depression.
