The Moon, Mercury, and Saturn are three main mental rulers of the brain.
The 3rd and 9th Houses from the Lagna are the mental signs.
Gemini (Mithun), Virgo (Kanya), and Aquarius also rule over mind and mental
structure. Any afflictions to these signs by occupation, ownership, and aspects
by malefic Planets (Mars, Saturn, Raahu, Ketu, or Jupiter in Makar (Capricorn)
or Mars in Kark (Cancer) or Sun in Tulaa (Libra), or combust of any planet with
Moon) could rise to mental disturbances - the transit in 'Gochar' could influence
this - the combination in Dashaa - Bhukti and Antar-Dashaa will be of greater
importance. Even simple association of Saturn or Raahu could cause extreme mental
disturbances whenever they combine in listed conditions. There is a dictum : When
Mars afflicts the Sun or Mercury in Mithun or Kanyaa Raashi the native will
invariably suffer from lunacy - crazy, irrational, unethical major decisions to
cause extreme mental pain and results.
