The review article explains that the mental disease is an integral part of Medical Astrology based on principles propounded by the ancient sages in India. The planets mainly responsible for sound or unsound mental health are the Moon, Mercury and Jupiter. These planets together either keep a native in perfect good mental health or cause him mental illness. Experimentation on diagnosing major mental disorders says that the nature of the mental illness can be ascertained from the relationship between the afflicted and the afflicting planets aided by a good understanding of the inherent qualities of such afflicted and afflicting planets like Moon: feelings, emotions, love, attachment, intuition and tenderness.Mercury: deep thoughts, logic, analysis, mathematics, rationality, planning, Mars: hot temperament, impulsiveness, knee-jerk reactions, violence and anger, Saturn: cunning, obstacle, suffering, stoic behaviour and suppression, Rahu: Evil thoughts, suffering, inciting, tempting, fantasizing
