I was beyond disturbed watching “mental illness” as it was portrayed in the movie, Black Swan. I realize it’s just a movie but it’s a popular one and I wonder if may change people’s attitudes about mental illness.
I’ve always felt that mental health is worth working for. If you’ve lost yours, t is worth working to regain it. If you’ve got your mental health, it’s worth making an effort to keep it. I realize that some mental illness is organic / chemical but I am talking about mental problems you can control which do exist.
Outside of Lois Rodden who wrote, Mercury Method of Chart Comparison, I am the only astrologer I know of who really gives Mercury (thinking) functions their due. Astrologer, James Braha also used a phrase I liked in one of his books, “mistake of the intellect”. He felt an astrologer could and should re-wire the client’s thinking and there is no doubt you can spare a person a lot of mental anguish with this capacity.
Have you ever lost (a piece of) your mind and made a comeback?
