In a natal chart, are there any particular alignments that indicate a disposition toward mental illness? Or is it more of an energy thing – all depends in how it manifests in that individual? Or both?
I believe that energy is neutral until directed so I don’t think mental illness can be seen in a natal chart. Other astrologers might give you a list of aspects that would indicate mental illness but you could easily find examples that would contradict their claim so I don’t buy it.
I also know of a number of people with tendency towards “crazy” that work very hard to override their inclinations. In a case like this, you can see the mental stress in the chart, however the person has somehow managed to get a handle on it.
Based on this alone, I would never look at a chart and conclude that the person was mentally ill.
