The Moon afflicted by other malefics like Mars or Saturn will also create temporary negative emotions.

Some practical solutions
First be aware of the reason for the depression, what thought occupies most of your day? If it is a past event, then you don’t have control to go back and change it.
If the negative emotion is about an unpleasant future, then make conscious effort alter your perception and state. You might be thinking about the worst-case scenario. Change your perception and make it a practice to visualize the best case scenario.
For some period of time, your mind will try to go to comfort zone(since your mind trained to be in depression, that will be a comfort zone for now) but you have to consciously pull back to present.
After some consistent effort, you can completely come out of depression or anxiety problems.
If you are unable to do the above steps by yourself, then it is good to connect with a trained counselor or a life coach
