Astrological reasons of Depression


Depression is caused by the dented state of mind. As per astrological science, ‘Mind’ is represented by the planet Moon. Moon is the receiver of everything that is good and bad. We all feel happy if we have good things in life and when there seems to be nothing good in life, we obviously feel gloomy and sad. Combination of Moon with other planets can cause mental illness.

Moon with Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu can give rise to depression. Debilitated Moon, Mercury and Jupiter can cause a mental imbalance.

Moon sitting in conjunction with Saturn makes a person’s mind heavy. Saturn is fear and limitation. It brings aloofness. Moon is the peace of mind and it wants happiness. The Saturn and the Moon combination make one depressive by putting extra burden, responsibility and feeling of heaviness on emotional side.

Another reason for depression is when Moon is sitting in conjunction with Ketu. Ketu is the south node of the Moon. It is our subconscious thinking. Ketu is headless body that compels to us to think what is beyond this world. It represents spirituality, nothingness and has no interest in materialistic world. Moon in conjunction with the planets in 6th, 8th, and 12 houses make a person more prone to depression as Moon is not happy in these houses. If Moon is exalted in Taurus sign, where mind is stable, it may not cause problems, but if debilitated and sitting with the Saturn, Rahu and Ketu may give rise to depression.


Moon is not comfortable in some Nakshatras. Ashlesha nakshatra falls in Moon’s own sign Cancer, but it is a most emotionally turbulent nakshatra. Vishakha Nakshatra in which Moon loses its mental peace due to lot of problems related to jealousy and makes a person prone to depression. Good Jupiter saves a person from depression and many evil effects in life. Jupiter in any combination inspires a person and makes him hopeful about life. Jupiter gives wisdom, hope and inspiration to life. So if we want happiness in life we should try to respect planet Jupiter.


Hence the depression reasons are many and life is not about happiness all the time; we should understand that there is something that is bigger than personal happiness. We should learn to accept that we cannot achieve everything in life, so that we are capable of managing depression. It’s not good for your health or mind to panic. So the moment one comes across early signs of depression, one should consult with an expert and follow Astro remedies for depression. Keep faith, eventually you will overcome your depression.
