Astrology of suicide?
Not to scare anyone - I'm fine! Just wondering about people's thoughts on this taboo topic. Aspects, progressions, transits, etc.
Saturn moon is not easy. I mean, you'll be on the edge during that transit. I have never been suicidal or depressed and I was walking a thin line during that time. I am over it. But I have never been so low. I am so much more understanding of people going through it now. Not that I wasn't. I have greater empathy now though. It's hard to pull out of that.
My transit was Saturn square moon. Horrible. People say a Pluto transit to your moon is bad. I dk about that yet. But I can't see how it would be worse for me. I have a strong plutonian signature in my chart, so I understand Pluto better than Saturn. I have had Pluto Opposite my moon. Not that big of a deal for me. I didn't have some dark night of the soul or anything like they claim. No disagreements with mom... none of that. I was not lonely.
Saturn... all of it happened. It was heartbreaking. Soul crushing. I cried and slept. Didn't care if I got out of bed to do anything. The closest I have ever been to needing a counselor.
I'm back to respond... I don't know that there are chart markers for this, but there could be. I suspect most people who kill themselves are in great distress with multiple harsh transits wrecking them.
To be clear, it's pretty common a person feels their transits are the worst, but by whose standard? Having done this for so long, I can tel you that what happens to some people and their chart can sometimes take my breath away. Like I have the chart in my hand and the phone is going to ring. I wait to hear what this person is going to tell me, knowing it will be off the chain and I need to be effective in helping them.
Now I'm talking about true, once in a life lifetime trial. I think a period like this could cause someone to kill themselves as the pain and despair overwhelms.
I realize this is a huge topic. I just wanted to offer what I know four sure. There are people who go along in their life just fine or at least well enough. Suicide would never be considered. But then they enter this tunnel of horror and if it's maintained long enough and the hits keep coming, they may come to this point.
I also think the current conditions are horrific for many and seem to be getting worse. The collective depression is ongoing and these last few years have been especially grim. If it does get worse, especially if people lose their money, I think we will see this. Bottom line, there can be markers in a chart, yes/no but if you know anyone going through prolonged hardship, you want to check on them. Keep you tie to them, especially if they're alone.
Thanks for bringing this up.
