Robin Williams suicide an astrological introspection.


Depressive illnesses are disorders of the brain. Brain-imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), have shown that the brains of people who have depression look different than those of people without depression. The parts of the brain involved in mood, thinking, sleep, appetite, and behavior appear different. But these images do not reveal why the depression has occurred. They also cannot be used to diagnose depression.

Some types of depression tend to run in families. However, depression can occur in people without family histories of depression too. Scientists are studying certain genes that may make some people more prone to depression.

Depression — Symptoms

What Are the Symptoms of Depression?

For major depression, you may experience a sad or depressed mood, or an inability to feel pleasure, plus five or more of the following symptoms, for at least a two-week period

  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, or hopelessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities, including sex
  • Difficulty concentrating and complaints of poor memory
  • Insomnia or oversleeping
  • Appetite changes, which may include weight gain or loss
  • Fatigue, lack of energy
  • Thoughts of suicide or death
  • Slow speech; slow movements

6-7. DEATH BY HANGING ETC. ( Saravali)
If the Moon in Capricorn, or Aquarius be hemmed between benefics, death will be due to 
hanging, fire, or fall, which is doubtless according to Chanakya. The same effect will come to 
pass, if the 5th and 9th Houses are occupied by malefics in aspect to malefics. If the drekkana 
of the 8th House be one of Pasa, Sarpa and Nigala, death will be reticent.

Astrological combination of  suicide.

If the lord of Lagna be in the 2nd alongwith the

lords of 3rd and the 11th, and the lord of 8th be in the

8th, the native will die by committing suicide. The

reason is that in these dispositions, the 8th house and

its lord and the lord of Lagna fall under the influence

of planets who make the native himself responsible

for taking his own life. In other words his own arms

represented by the lords of the 3rd and the 11th


become the instruments causing his death.

Different Combination for Sudden Unnatural Deaths

Death by suicide:

  1. If the ascendant/8th house, their lords and Sun are afflicted by Mars/Saturn/Ketu.
    2.    If the Sun, Moon, Mercury [soul, mind and thinking] are afflicted by Rahu and Ketu or nodes.
    3.    Association of Mars and Saturn.

Death by weapon:

  1. If Moon, Mars and Saturn in 8th house.
    2.    If Mars in 6th/12th and Saturn in 8th house.

Death by assassination:

  1. Naural malefic in 8th house afflicted badly with Mars either by association or by conjunction.
    2.    Moon and Mars either aspects 8th house or situated in it.

If Saturn in ascendant with no benefice aspects and the Sun/Rahu/Waning Moon combine the     native is either stabbed or shot dead.
If the Sun and Mars exchanges signs and quadrant to the 8th lord the native may be        sentenced to death by the Government.
Rahu in 6th/8th/12th may cause death through conspiracy.
If the 9th house is occupied with malefic, death is painful due to disease, accident, murder or     suicide.
If the ascendant and 8th lords are weak and Mars is in conjunction with 6th lord, the native may be killed in war.

Depression and astrology.

Astrology of depression the depressed state of mind.

Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person’s thoughts, behaviour  feelings and sense of well-being. Depressed people may feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, worried,helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, hurt, or restless. They may lose interest in activities that once were pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details, or making decisions, and may contemplate or attempt suicide. Insomnia, excessive, fatigue, loss of energy, or aches, pains, or digestive problems that are resistant to treatment may also be present.
Depression is very common now a day. Everyone experiences depression and stress in his life. But we soon come out from this state due to our thinking process and efforts. It becomes a serious matter if depression punches very often and we become the victim of it. Tendency of getting depression can also be located in a horoscope.

Depressed mood is not necessarily a psychiatric disorder. It may be a normal reaction to certain life events, a symptom of some medical conditions, or a side effect of some drugs or medical treatments. Depressed mood is also a primary or associated feature of certain psychiatric syndromes such as clinical depression.
Life events and changes that may precipitate depressed mood include childbirth, menopause, financial difficulties, job problems, loss of a loved one/family member or friend, natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. relationship troubles, separation, bereavement and catastrophic injury.
There are four astrological signs which are inherently prone to depression – Scorpio, Capricorn, Gemini and Sagittarius.  These signs tend to express their problems through the symbol of depression in their own particular mode.
Astrological significators of Psychiatric Problems:

Moon is mind and mercury rules nerves, intelligence and communications and  capabilities controlled by the brain.

 Saturn-Liz Greene calls Saturn “the membrane which separates the personal  unconscious    from the  collective unconscious“. 
 Saturn has a natural rulership over places and conditions that are cold, dark,  oppressive, or  defined through weakness, decay or hard physical labour. It is the  lord of winter, the enemy of  the Sun, the symbol for the authoritarian father or the  unswerving law caster who cares less  about the spirit of personal morality than  obedience to structures that serve a collective  purpose. Saturn calls for loss, denial  and sacrifice wherever our immediate ego-driven  interests conflict with wider needs  or our own future evolution. As the ‘Grim Reaper’ Saturn  appears only to be  concerned with bringing denial to our hopes and expectations,
First as it rules head.
The fourth it rules mental peace and is sukh sthaan
Fifth rules intelligence and emotions.
Sixth diseases and nerves, psychiatric problems, nervous breakdowns etc.
 Significant Signs:Cancer and Leo.
  • Depression: the fifth house
  • Emotional Peace: the fifth and Moon
  • Mental Peace: the fourth and Moon
  • Nervous Control: the sixth and Mercury
  • General Karaka (significator) for the fifth: Jupiter
  • General Karaka (significator) for the fourth: Moon and Venus
  • Combust mercury- Is indicator of mental and nervous disorders
Mercury(the analytical ability) in affliction combustion etc causes anxiety leading to depression, nervous breakdowns, hypertension, and insomnia.
The third house and Mercury rule mental growth.
The third house and Mars rule initiatives.
The fourth house rules the power to comprehend and is indicative of mental peace.
Fifth house means intelligence, emotional setup, and passion
Weak and afflicted planets connected to third, fourth, 5th and sixth house may result in mental maladies  for the native, and  can lead to anything from anxiety and depression, in severe cases to full blown manic episodes.
Both the sixth house and Mercury rule nervous control, which also factors into consideration when assessing determinants for anxiety.
As per ayur vedic astrology 5th lord or 8th lord are responsible for chitta roga or diseases due to brain damage.

Birth data from Astrodatabank–

Starting from the first house we have rahu as dispositor of lagna lord under aspect from 3rd ,4th ,5th lord , while 6th aand lagan lord is under the aspect of saturn ,mars and rahu  so we have a afflicted 1st and 6th lord .Sign scorpio is heavily afflicted moon and mercury are combust ,as discussed above moon and mercury ,weak ,combust or afflicted lead to depressive bouts or mental maladies.Another significance of afflicted 5th lord mercury is that it triggers chitta rog ( mental or nervous disorder)in this chart.So here we have a clear cut case of depression.
