Some individuals are born with certain mental defects or physical defects, deformities or malformations. One cannot help one’s congenital mental or physical defects. One should try to cope with such defects oneself.
Meanwhile, some individuals incur mental and physical defects due to accidents or other unforeseen circumstances. Here comes the usefulness of Astrology. For a competent astrologer by carefully studying one’s Natal Chart is able to predict whether one is due to suffer a mental illness or a physical defect like blindness, deafness, dumbness or some other physical deformity. However, Astrology is not a science that says what is predicted cannot be prevented. Astrology is there to help one to prevent such a personal calamity by forewarning for taking necessary precautions. Now let us get familiar with planetary combinations or positions that indicate mental and physical defects that one is likely to suffer sooner or later.
