How do you think depression effects our astrology? Sorry if this is a weird question.
i dont really wanna get too it interfering or being separate or reflecting any qualities. there are so many factors that go into it to relate it directly to astrology is kind of an insult. i havent got a doctorate in psychoanalytics like liz greene, i feel my comments are unworthy but anyway
when i did mental health nursing we were always encouraged to develop and identify ‘resilience factors’. you may have heard of his because its pretty universal. So resiliency factors they say are like an adaptation to confront tragedy. These can be things like family support, education, intelligence, good self esteem, problem solving abilities, managing powerful impulses, and so on
I thought that it seems as though more of these ‘resiliency’ qualities are demonstrated through the chart. Like with Pluto in the 12th is the unconscious mastery, the profound empathy and remedial powers, the knowledge of guiding transcendence, I mean if you really wanted you could say the 12th house Pluto (for example) was going to be singularly excluded to attribute to depression. But then I think, wait, the lord of the underworld, the LORD OF THE UNDERWORLD like the most prophetic, magic, wise, divine, the creator of destiny is your face in the 12th house, do you see your strength? Who better to walk alongside you? and that is you? this is your resiliency. you have all the energy of the underworld to blow fire in the face of sickness.
here is some writing i have from my favourite authors liz greene and steven forrest
