The Astrology of Mental Health:
Depression & Catatonia
Natal and Transit Charts
The natal chart offers one of the earliest maps of the human mental - emotional - spiritual anatomy. How do these layers of consciousness communicate, or conversely, disassociate?
The knowledge of planetary transits stimulating health crises offers the student a further jewel to this crown! Although highly influential to Jung’s seminal work, (and many practitioners following), “astro-psychology” is, in fact, ancient. We discover a complex understanding of mental and emotional “qualities” and their extreme states, in Ptolemy’s Tetrobiblios, 140 CE.
Understand the astrological conditions correlative to chronic depression (dysthymia). How are “dry” depressions different from “wet” cases? What was meant by “Saturnine?” What transits encourage depressed states?
Several chart examples include Abraham Lincoln, Robin Williams, Naomi Judd, and JK Rowling.
Here is a clip from this class for you to enjoy!
For astrology students, and mental health professionals with an interest in astrology. This class is recommended for students with a solid, basic knowledge of the birth chart. They are able to look at a natal chart and note what sign and house any planet tenants, name the Ascendant sign, and note the basic aspects.

The system of astrological analysis of mental states from natal charts was documented as early as 140 CE (Claudius Ptolemy). The Astrology of Mental Health series of classes demonstrate the traditional and modern astrological method of analysis for mental states and issues and does not constitute, nor represent modern clinical psychology or psychiatry practice and approaches. The teacher will, however, include extant, and sometimes conflicting hypotheses (not as facts) as related to various psychological diagnoses, but from the astrological view. The inclusion of any one paradigm is for educative purposes only, and does not necessarily constitute the teacher's personal opinion, nor is intended to offend those who oppose the paradigm. As an astrologer, the teacher is approaching the subject of mental health through ancient and modern astrological methods and worldviews. Listeners and viewers would be warned that diverse and opposing hypotheses for various mental states are included in this series, (examined astrologically), for the sole purpose of assisting the student's comparative knowledge. If this approach is not to your preference, please do not purchase this class.
