MENTAL ILLNESS &
ITS DIAGNOSIS, BASED ON BIRTH CHART.
This person suffers from schizophrenic illness; he is unable to work / do any job due to constant problems with his hearing "voices" , that is "auditory hallucinations." Based on Jataka Tatva, ancient text on astrology one can explain his natal-chart as follows :
1. Jupiter is in the birth-lagna and Mars is in opposition in the seventh house. Jupiter is in his own house, in Sagittarius and is strong; so he is a "relatively well" schizophrenic)
2. Saturn is also in the birth-lagna, conjunct with Jupiter. This creates a restriction on the otherwise strong Jupiter in Sagittarius.
3. According to the Jataka Tattva, the next possible indicator of mental illness is if Saturn is in the 12th house associated with a waning Moon. In the Rasi chart, although the Moon is indeed waning, Saturn is at 18 degrees and the Ascendant (lagnam) is at nearly 23 degrees in Sagittarius, so even though Saturn precedes the lagna, it is still by Vedic standards in the 1st house. However, in the Navamsha the situation is reversed, there is a new moon, but Saturn is in the 12th house. So the rule applies in this case.
4. The next rule in Jataka Tatva does apply here, as Saturn is the lord of the second house and aspects both the Sun and Mars. The second house is relevant as it refers to (vaak) speech. This rule is applicable because this person has difficulty with communication. (To be continued tomorrow in Part—4).
