Connection of Astrology and Mental health
In the 1950s, lunatic was used for people who are mentally ill. The word lunatic comes from the Latin word ‘lunacus’, which is the synonym of luna(moon). People believed in ancient times, that moon phases and mental health are interlinked. The birth chart, divisional charts, and ‘dasa’ system show us the summary of different parts and phases of our life. In Vedic astrology, the Moon stands for mind and Mercury is seen for logic and intellect. If these two planets are afflicted in a horoscope, then there are high chances that a person might suffer from mental illness. Thus, this gives us an edge to take precautionary measures and intervene with the illness.
If the Moon is in a stressful aspect with Saturn, then the person may suffer from acute depression. If Moon is afflicted by Rahu, then the person may have schizophrenia and phobia. If Moon is afflicted by Ketu, then the person may become maniac and develop delusions. If the 5th house of Intellect is suppressed by an Air sign, then the person may be susceptible to mental disorder. The combination of 4th house and Moon signifies mental peace. And, the alliance of the 5th house and Moon shows emotional wellbeing. The Afflicted 5th house also shows depression.
Role of Astrology in curing mental health issues
Who is a psychological astrologer?
Astrologers who have at least a master’s degree in psychology are known as psychological astrologers and practice psychological astrology. They study personalities as well as the cosmos and their interdependence on each other. For example, to know your in-depth personality, they use planetary positions along with psychological trait models. Also, to know the external events, they may use astrology and to understand their effects on you and your internal conflicts, they may use psychology. Astropsychology is inspired by theories of Carl Jung from a psychological perspective.
Why do people believe in astrology and how does it have a psychological influence on people?
Astrology has been a significant part of most of the cultures since ancient times. Hence, a major group of the population is inclined towards it and believes in it. People who find it hard to express themselves often use zodiac sign characteristics to denote their personalities and range of emotions. This is the science behind horoscope psychology. Hence, it can be used to build up a positive rapport with people. Also, psychology is expansive and adaptive and uses multiple approaches to heal unless it doesn’t harm a person. So, people who firmly believe in astrology receive psychological benefits when their counseling is infused with astrology.
