Depression: Scorpio Sun, Virgo Moon, Capricorn Rising

capricorn vintage pin hattieHi Elsa,

I’m 32, female, and I have chemical depression.

I quit my last (horrible) job and moved back home so I could go to school full-time. I’ve tried all kinds of different medications since high school and nothing seems to “take.” I can get out bed and do mundane tasks but I never look forward to anything and I have no energy.

I want to be like other people who have goals and actually want to get up in the morning. I’m not in therapy because I can’t afford it right now and also because I’m starting to think that I’m hopeless. Do I have any hope?

Dear Depressed,

Yes, you have hope. There is always hope. People pull back from the brink of hell allllll the time. Especially when they’re Scorpios! Or Capricorns like you, who astrologer Jayj Jacobs characterizes as “Scorpios in suits”. In other words, you are made of some serious stuff and I highly doubt you are going to go down and stay down.

That said, you do have very significant transits to your chart, so the thing to do is adjust your expectations. It’s like standing at the base of a tall mountain. You’re going to get up it, I’m sure. But not in a day! Or a week.

And I know what you’re thinking. “I can’t! I just want to get in bed and pull the covers over my head,” but obviously you are not going to be able to do that. With your Moon in Virgo, you are being pressured to fix this, and with the emphasis on Capricorn in your chart, the way you’ll solve this is by making a commitment to methodically solving your problems and embracing the idea that the process with be long and somewhat arduous.

That much right there will help your Scorpio Sun focus. Rather than waffling and debating what to do, you know the number one thing you need to do is to get your meds right. So put your feelers out. Use your spider senses to guide you… which doctor you might call that will have what you need.

See, I really think a commitment (Capricorn) to focus (Scorpio) on your health (Virgo) is the ticket. This is how your chart is set up, and once you start living in a way that is authentic… once you find the right path, the universe indubitably will send support. The doctor who gets your meds right will give you the name of the therapist who winds up helping you, etc. etc.

So hell yes, there is hope. And help! You only need recognize you’re not getting up this mountain without climbing and once you do that, your inner mountain goat will conspire with your Scorpio Sun and your health encyclopedia Virgo Moon, and you’ll be on your way.

Good luck.

  1. I really feel for you! I’ve been depressed and it sucks poo. You can’t give up on the meds, there are always new ones being developed and there is no way to say that there isn’t one that will really help until you’ve tried them all. So don’t give up… on the medication or the therapy, when you can afford it. Good luck!

  2. Hey, sometimes Wellbutrin added to another antidepressant ups the effects, if it’s not working. Not always, but sometimes. If you haven’t already tried it, that might help…

    Good luck!

  3. Hi im 19 male and always think id rather be some one else. i am always criticising myself to the point of destruction, by thinking im actually not even close to being intelligent. I envy other people who seem to always be cheery and have made a clear plan in life, while i am lazy and very much a procrasinator. my main set back is that i am studying at university for the second year while still formally in the 1st year after failling. i always think of the best outcomes if i was working to my full potential but i never do and always end up getting badly hurt and depressed. My sun is in virgo, moon in scorpio and rising in saggitarius. Please help me with relevant advice.

    • always remember you are only human i criticise myself to the point iof calling myself idiot everytime i get something wrong. im learning slowly to just tell myself fuck it everyone makes mistakes.

  4. Me and me brother both are facing a similar problem of depression. He is born on 13th september and myself on 21st september. Do we have any real problems in future?

  5. i have had depression myself and one day i woke up and listened to the advice i give other people. i picked myself up decided i didnt want to feel hopeless any more. put my addictions aside and listened to my voice. it is possible to get better you just have to give yourself time and have paitience. i am born september first when im sick its so bad everyone worries even those that dont like me worry that perhaps they have ovestepped and contributed to the issues, my nemesis are leos, sagittarius and the forever annoyingly manipulative geminis. avoid them like a plague staying safe is also good idea if something makes you sick.
