PART—2. This must be corroborated by other factors such as:
1. Afflictions to the Moon (mind), Mercury (nervous system) and Jupiter (maturity / wisdom). Particularly, when all three of these planets are afflicted, conditions leading to mental illness are highly possible.

2. The fifth house can correspond to thinking, logic and wisdom. If the lord of the 5th house is afflicted, the person suffers mental disorders.

3. The lagna and / or Aries, both indicate the head; if they are afflicted the person is mentally ill.

4. Kemadruma Yoga - This is a condition occurs when the moon has no planets in either of the signs flanking it. When there is no planet in the 2nd or the 12th from the moon, the soundness of the mind may be spoiled. Again, the entire natal-chart needs to be examined carefully.

It is always desirable to search for confluence (conjunct) in the chart, before taking any such a serious conclusion. If there is a possibility of mental illness, these indicators will often show up not only in the rasi chart, but also the Nava-amsa chart and possibly other divisional (harmonic) charts also.
