Astrology: Psychological Problems
Is it feasible to analyse psychiatric diseases with the using astrological charts?
It is unlikely that an individual’s astrological chart will indicate any indicators of a mental illness. By referring to the chart in question, it is simple to detect some of an individual’s probable proclivities toward various types of challenges. Even while a person’s birth chart might disclose specific difficulties, not all of the issues in a person’s life are revealed by their horoscope.
Interested in learning more about various personality and health concerns that may arise? The Encyclopedia of Psychological Astrology is an interesting book to read. The book contains a complete list of issues in pathology and psychology that are discussed in depth.. It can be beneficial to someone who suffers from hypochondria, such as myself, because it allows one to browse through the different probable physical and psychological difficulties that may arise.
A few examples are provided in the next section:
Irritability: Arises generally from bad aspects between Mars and Uranus, especially if the asc., Moon or Mercury is involved. It is most pronounced in the fiery and watery signs, although the airy ones are inclined to nervous irritation when exhausted. The Cardinals incline to angry outbursts; the fixed to repressed resentment with occasional volcanic fury, and the mutables to irritated outbursts, fuss, and bickerings.
Pedestrianism is a distinctly Sagittarian passion. George Borrow, the apostle of the “open road” school, was a typical Sagittarian; it is related that, when troubled by insomnia, he would often get up and walk thirty miles at a stretch. Where a Sagittarian is found to be averse to walking or sports it is usually found that his Saturn is predominant but in affliction.
Refinement is chiefly manifested under the airy signs, and particularly Libra. Among the others Virgo is considered refined, but exceptions often occur. Most violent bad aspects tend to destroy delicacy of feeling in some direction, but this is particularly likely to be the case if the 5th house and watery signs are involved. A heavy Mars element tends to diminish refinement, even if the aspects are good, and a strong Venus promotes it. The fire signs are often horsey and common (;p), and their high spirits betray them at times into vulgarity. Unless Venus is very weak indeed, however, the native will nearly always respond, more or less easily, to good influences. The nativity must, in such cases particularly, be carefully considered as a whole.
None of those are considered to be mental illnesses. It is more about behaviour and personality than anything else, but it is worth a look. astrology provides many significant insights into one’s psyche, and we cannot dispute that it has the ability to understand one’s complete psychology. It was said in The Development of the Personality Seminars that astrologers who vehemently disputed the psychological side of their work were at best ignorant, and at worst damaging due to their lack of understanding of the astrological symbols they were dealing with.
Despite the fact that astrology has depth and includes a psychological component, no astrologer would ever look at a chart and claim that the chart had a psychiatric disorder. Our everyday lives are continuously loaded with a wide range of challenging and subjective challenges with which we must all cope…. When dealing with severe cases of insanity, mental instability, or excessive neuroticism, astrology may be able to provide some guidance on the problem.
The Moon is frequently mentioned in astrology because of its association with lunacy and madness. Certain readings, on the other hand, can be overstated, like in the case of old texts that indicate the Moon on the Ascendant can cause insanity. Houses 6, 8, and 12 have also been incorrectly labelled as ‘weak houses’ and inauspicious, despite the fact that they are not in fact so. Long-term suppression followed by a quick activation might result in the emergence of “psychological issues” (transitioning action). It used to be that astrological literature would simply look at planets in the 12th house and conclude that there is a risk of institutionalisation, imprisonment or being shut off from society. But this is no longer the case.
