Elena Lumen: Mental Health Issues in the Natal Chart: A Traditional Overlook
In this lecture, we will discuss how traditional western astrology identifies mental health illness in the natal charts. This was often seen in severe afflictions to the Moon, Mercury, excessive mutability in the chart, and some other configurations. Elena will illustrate how these astrological patterns continue to be relevant in the modern world of ever-expanding lists of mental health issues. She will present chart examples drawn from a her decade-long experience as a practicing psychologist.
