Venusscorpiogirl, what an excellent post.  Thank you for sharing your experience here and kudos to your participation in support groups. 

I think I've read about that video game you mentioned.  It's a sophisticated version of learning biofeedback as I recall.  Great to hear the positive review.         

Congrats to your successful daughter (and her dedicated mom)!

Hi.

I also strongly agree with Nile.  I believe if Pisces or Neptune are involved there will be poisoning of the system.  Perhaps check out the Feingold diet for ADHD on-line.  My sister swears by it.  I don't have exact astrological information for her family at hand, but her son had a miraculous turn-around by following the diet.  I know he has Neptune square to his Virgo Sun, don't know which houses they rule.... and then when she saw that her grandson was experiencing the same symptoms, she said "let me have him for a few days", put him on the diet and saw a big turn-around with him as well.  Now the little 6 yr old knows exactly what he can eat and what he shouldn't eat, regulates himself at friends houses.

It is my opinion that preservatives and other additives in food are the cause of problems like ADHD.   I feel it is allergy based.  I dont agree that you need a strong Pisces connection for instance.  Mania belongs to Mars and perhaps Jupiter plus Mercury.   I am against Ritalin and those sort of drugs and could relate horror stories about those who had been using it long term.   I feel the answer lies in diet.  Experimentation with foods I feel are the answer.
Good luck.

"About the ADD/ADHD there is only one thing I want to look at a horoscope (which I know beforehand): Neptune connection. Because ADD/ADHD and autism, and many more mental diseases are caused by ALLERGIES and MINERAL POISONING like mercury."

who says that they are mental diseases??

neurotypicals

what about us neurodivergents who believe that neurodivergence is not a mental disease but a natural variation of the human condition

and another thing

The DRD4 7R which is a gene connected to novelty seeking is connected to half of cases of ADHD.  It was an advantageous dated back 10,000 to 40,000 thousand years ago.

There is a good book on it by Thom Hartmann


maybe its only the acquired neurodivergence that is caused by allergies and mineral poisoning

the genetic neurodivegence has pronounced strengths and weaknesses

the problem is people looping them altogether, thinking that they are the same.


another things there is such thing as genetic autism too.  There are genes that are connected to autism. There is spontanous genetic mutations connected to autism

what about the visual  problem solving strengths that many autistic have?     how are those caused by allergies and mineral poisoning?


I have Dyslexia,Dyspraxia,and ADHD myself.

I believe that Neptune is strong in a neurodivergent. They are confusing and can easily be confused in some ways. They are hard to pin down,often misunderstood/misdiagnosed, and put on medication like antipsychotic,Risperdal have been used to treat behavior problems in people(especially children) with ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Many of them are ultrasensitive(as in ultraresponsive to external stimuli which can be sensory integration issues) and highly imaginative types(which can fit with the visual thinking,nonlinear thought processes that many neurotypicals,and highly distractibility from an internal source). Many neurotypicals might even see them as deceptive in some way if they don't understand their neurodivergent weaknesses...i.e. many neurodivergents have problems with eye contact. It can be because of sensory integration issues or coordination issues that have problems as they have a hard time doing more than one thing at the same time.  Having eye contact or not having eye contact with another during communications is often viewed as determining if somebody's being honest or not. Some have to pause before answering a question. This could be because of auditory input speech lags or being primarily a picture thinker with word thinking being secondary. Some might see that as being dishonest because they might think "well...he's obviously lying,he can't even give a straight answer"
Even disorganization and absentmindedness that many neurodivergents have can be mistaken for deception too.


All the planets beyond Saturn are referred to as outerplanets, and so they are related to metaphysical energies. Uranus is the planet of liberation from boundaries as it breaks way with its need for independence,and it is associated with innovation and intuitive flashes. Neptune is the planet of dissolution of boundaries as it pierces the veil to reveal another world,and it is associated with imagination,inspiration, and psychism. Pluto is the planet of elimination of boundaries, and is compared to being the other side. This could be death,afterlife,or could be the subterranean depths of the human psyche. It is possible that Pluto's fellow transneptunian objects could be similar to Pluto. I believe that Pluto and its fellow transneptunians can be energies so metaphysical that they can be hard to handle and can manifest as problems on the physical plane such as serious health problems,psychiatric disorders, and even neurodivergence which are often subtle in their own way and very misunderstood. These aren't necessarily bad things. Neurodivergence tends to be very misunderstood,and it was unknown for a long time. The issues tend to be subtle. They have also been known as hidden handicaps.

With that in mind, I believe that it makes sense that the kuiper belt objects associated with unknown,hidden,subtleties could be indicators for neurodivergence.


I believe that Chiron does fit with special needs which often require special attention. Many children with special needs often grow up to be compassionate adults that care about children and others with special needs. Chiron can be about having painful experiences that lead you to be a compassionate person that care about others that have similar painful experiences.

Chiron is located between Saturn and Uranus.......so bridges the physical and metaphysical. It's considered holistic.....mind,body,spirit connection.
Saturn/Uranus midpoint is said to be Chiron-sensitive. That means that aspects to Saturn/Uranus midpoint is like aspects to Chiron.

think of the myth, Chiron
He was rejected by his parents, Cronos and Philyra because of his appearance as a centaur, but he ended up being a foster parent/mentor of many of the great heroes like Heracles,Jason,Achilles. He taught Asclepius to be a healer,and he was surpassed by that son of Apollo,the god of healing. Asclepius was the God of medicine.
Chiron was accidentally shot by Heracles with one of the poisoned arrows dipped in the Hydra's blood. He couldn't cure himself of the wound. He ended up taking Prometheus' place in the Underworld which led to the end of his pain.

Chariklo was his mate too. Chariklo is also the largest of the centaurs in our solar system. Like Chiron, it orbits between Saturn and Uranus. The difference is that it has an orbit less eccentric than Chiron. Centaurs named after females have less eccentric orbits than Centaurs named after males. The eccentricity of the orbits of the centaur celestial objects is like wild nature,noncomformity of the centaur creatures. That's why Chiron is viewed as a maverick.


BTW...there are over 40 centaurs, and over 10 of them have names already.

It would make sense to think that if Chiron is involved in neurodivergent conditions, then maybe other centaurs are involved in neurodivergent conditions too.

Also kuiper belt object Ixion is named after the grandfather of the centaurs. Ixion was known for his lusty nature like his descendants. He actually got punished by Zeus for wanting and trying to get it on with Zeus' wife,Hera. a horny mortal man trying to get it on with the queen of the gods. hahahahaha. That's how lusty Ixion was.

Ixion is a big plutino(3rd largest plutino), and it has 2:3 resonance with Neptune like Pluto. Its orbit is highly eccentric like Pluto's. Their orbits are similar to the orbits of centaurs with their eccentricity. They can be seen as wild,nonconformists.

 I am going to look at it from the neurodivergent perspective too. That means that I don't view neurodivergence as a disorder.  I view it as an alternative way of being and thinking which doesn't conform to the arbitrary rules of society. Therefore,I am not going to just focus on planetary afflictions which would be focus on just what's wrong with the person. I will focus on the easy aspects too as well as the esoteric aspect harmonics (5th,7th,9th,11th).



I am looking for harmonic aspect triangles,quadrilaterals or patterns with more than 5 objects.  It's possible that a narrow orb esoteric aspect involvin a personal planet/point could be important,and that could be something to consider. I believe that this is especially the case for close orbed 5th harmonic aspects that include the quintile and biquintile which were devised by Johannes Johannes Kepler based on musical harmonic theory. It is said that he was skeptical of signs and houses in Astrology. It makes sense that he would think " the hell with the zodiac signs, I am coming up with my own aspects that have nothing to do with them".  He opened the can of worms when he introduced minor aspects in Astrology. Even now,sesquiquadrates(devised by Kepler based on fiveness...5/8) and semisquaresare regularly used in Cosmobiology,seen on a 90 degree dial and Uranian Astrology as major aspects and regularly used with midpoints. Minor aspects are not necessarily minor, but they just require much smaller orbs than regular aspects. Minor aspect patterns have corresponding midpoint pictures. Even the golden section aspect(devised by Theodor Landscheidt) triangles have corresponding midpoint pictures. All midpoint pictures are harmonic aspect patterns any way. It's just that the ones that aren't of the 12th harmonic series(conjunction,opposition,square,sextile,semisextile,quincunx) are not easily seen in the regular chart.



5th harmonic in regards to neurodivergence:

It is said to be a quality similar to Pluto,with overtones of Venus and Mars: some kind of concrete creation or destruction is effected. Intellectual functions (not excluding emotion) and all especially human matters. Transformational change. The ability to express creative inspiration (due to other factors) in concrete creations.  Many neurodivergents have obsessive traits. Many are highly emotional,intense and have history of emotional outbursts,emotional meltdowns which might be viewed as temper tantrums and can be destructive. Many of them can be a bit obsessive and hyperfocus,especially when it comes to interests. This could make them very good researchers. Because they think are  lateral outside the box thinkers,they can be very creative. Many of them are in creative,artistic fields. The 10th harmonic might be important if it involves near exact to exact aspects (0 to 5 minutes of arc) and/or aspect patterns.



7th harmonic in regards to neurodivergence:

I check the 7th harmonic first because the 7th harmonic is said to have Uranus-Neptune flavor,energy linkings not entirely of this world as well as creative inspiration,but also mental and emotional difficulties and tenuous connectedness with the physical universe;religion.
There could be an otherworldliness about neurodivergents. Mental and emotional difficulties seems like it would fit with neurodivergence too. Also the 7th harmonic could be about the sublteties of existence, and neurodivergents tend to be extremely sensitive to subtleties that they can be easily overwhelmed,overstimulated by their environment. The 14th harmonic might be important if it involves near exact to exact aspects (0 to 5 minutes of arc) and/or aspect patterns.



9th harmonic in regards to neurodivergence:

The 9th harmonic is said to be about completions,endings;what life produces in the long run;needs and capacities in relationships and marriage. It seems that the 9th harmonic harmonic has to do with the big picture and wholeness(the integration of halves,parts into a cohesion....like the mind,body,and spirit.....or yin and yang....or.  Many neurodivergents are global learners, and they tend to be good at seeing the big picture. Of course, many people only see parts of them whether it's just their weaknesses or just their strengths and not both their strengths and weaknesses.  The 18th harmonic might be important if it involves near exact to exact aspects(0 to 5 minutes of arc) and/or aspect patterns.



11th harmonic in regards to neurodivergence.

David Cochrane(creator of Kepler Astrology Program) says that any aspect that has 11 in the denominator is very unstable, erratic, impatient, and rebellious which fit with neurodivergence quite a bit because they are not naturally conforming to arbitrary rules of society in regards to their physical being and thinking. Some other astrologers say that the 11th harmonic is associated with social consciousness and the ability to reach beyond oneself for help which I also believe is common with many neurodivergents who are strongly aware and tolerant of differences because of their own differences which lead them to raise awareness about differences in people.  From the looks of it,it seems that these aspects have an Aquarius/Uranian flavor.

even the harmonic-oriented astrologer, Adze wrote:

An Undecile occurs when two planets are plus or minus thirty-two degrees, forty-three minutes and seven seconds apart (approximately thirty-three degrees). An undecile is one-eleventh of a circle. Undeciles indicate psychic gifts. Where undeciles are found, modifications are required. Undeciles relate to the power of computers, science and technology. Undeciles resonate with Uranus, Fixed, Air and Aquarius energy.    Mahttp://www.adze.com/Classroom/aspects.html

Many neurodivergents are attracted to computers,science,and techology and make a living in those fields.  Some believe that high functioning autistics,Aspergers are great in those areas. Some think that a lot of computer geeks might even have an autistic spectrum disorder.




Neurodivergents have significant strengths and not just significant weaknesses.



Here are some examples.




Positive aspects of Aspergers:

* Intense concentration on studying
* Independence
* An affinity with computers and other technology
* Good formal essay writing
* Attention to detail and precision
* Original ideas
* Reliable meeting of deadlines.
http://brainhe.com/students/types/aspergersstudents.html#strengths


Positive aspects of Dyspraxia

* Creativity
* Determination
* Motivation
* Strategic thinking
* Problem-solving
http://brainhe.com/students/types/dyspraxia.html


Positive aspects of Dyslexia

* Creativity
* 3 dimensional thinking
* Seeing the 'whole picture'
* Pictorial thinking
* Divergent thinking
* Problem solving
* Making unexpected connections
http://brainhe.com/students/types/dyslexia.html


Positive aspects of ADHD
(BTW......instead of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.........I think it should be called Attention Divergent Hyperactivity Difference.........that's my neurodivergent perspective of it)

* Ability to see the ‘big picture’
* Being creative and inventive
* Ability to focus intensely for a time
* High levels of energy
* Risk-taking can lead to discoveries
* Being intuitive
http://brainhe.com/students/types/ADHDstaff.html


In Medical Astrology,  Mercury is said to be associated with the nervous system and Moon is said to be associated with the brain itself according to Cosmobiologists,Uranian Astrologers. I also want to point out there are other views of what planet/point is associated with the brain.  I believe that the Moon makes a lot of sense because Moon is associated with bodily fluids. We do have fluids in our brain called cerebrospinal fluid.  Drinking water is very important for brain functioning. Dehydration can lead to problems with dizziness.

Other things that I will consider is the travel rate of both Moon and Mercury. Both are involved in processing information. The average travel rate of the Moon is 13 degrees,10 minutes.  If the Moon's travel rate is slow,it could indicate slowness in processing information which has nothing to do with intelligence level. If the Moon's travel rate is fast, it could indicate quick emotional reactions to things. The person with a fast moon might even be seen as being too emotionally reactive which is typical of neurodivergents with sensory integration issues

The average travel rate of Mercury is 59 minutes,14 seconds. If the Mercury's travel rate is slow, it could indicate slowness in processing information which has nothing to do with intelligence level.  If the Mercury's travel rate is fast,it could indicate quick mental reactions to things. It can even be a hyperactive nervous system which is typical of neurodivergents with hyperactivity.



Those are some things that I would check out when looking at charts of neurodivergents.  I don't want to focus on just their weaknesses.  Their strengths should also be looked at imho.  My view is that they are not disordered but different.
Different doesn't necessarily mean deficient.  We all have our differences in one way or another?  Does that mean that we are deficient?  People who think "my way is the right way" might believe in that.  Many people that believe in diversity don't.  Norms are based on what the majority of society believes is right and acceptable. Norms are relative. What's normal in one society is abnormal in another society. As astrologers, practicing Astrology is normal to us, but it's abnormal to many others that don't believe in Astrology.  As astrologers, we are convergent in regards to our views and practices.  To the outside observer, we are divergent.
That's how I view neurodivergence and the concept of neurodiversity as a Dyslexic,Dyspraxic,ADHD person  that benefited from  early intervention special education therapies to correct my Dyslexic,Dyspraxic weaknesses.  Special education is not just for the mentally retarded.

Hi Raymond:

Long time no hear from.  My grand daughter is neurodivergent.  She is 2 and 1/2 and I have known this about her since she was about 3 weeks old.  She also may be psychic.  If the people who like to categorize other people get ahold of her, they will categorize her as autistic.  This I wouldn't mind so much as it would give my own burden of this information a rest and let somebody else carry it for awhile.  All other family members seem to be in denial or unwilling to comment on it.  No doubt they are frightened of the negative emphasis.  You are right…there is way too much emphasis on the negative and way too little on the positive.  I know my grand daughter is talented - she already wants to use the computer and I have half a mind that she knows what she is looking for.  But socially she has no real concept of what people are for.  People stump her.  Or so it seems to the "normal" person.  It appears she has no need for people, except for her basic needs.

My grand daughter has Mercury rx separating from a trine with Neptune rx, and she has Venus in opposition to Uranus (Uranus rx rules the 3rd).  She also has a grand water trine between the Sun-Moon(with Mars)-Uranus; and Venus in Virgo opposite the Uranus is the main road out.  A very difficult road out.  The trine, as Noel always points out, allows her to feel emotionally self-sufficient , until something goes wrong.  To get out of that predicament, she needs to face her lack of connecting to other's feelings, because if she wants her needs met she will have to start meeting the needs of others in return, at least a small modicum of them.  Fortunately, her case is not extreme….no head banging or anything like that. 

That was a very long and very interesting post you wrote.  I disagree with one thing.  When you mentioned the 11th harmonic being about seeking the help of others, and that neurodivergents do that, I understand what you are referring to, but I think those individuals who have come back around to teach or write books (people like you) are doing it to provide awareness for the future so that others like themselves will not be mislabeled and distanced.  It seems it is not in the nature of any of these spectrums to consider reaching out for help.  In fact, like the grand trine in my grand daughter's chart, it is a trait to not feel that it is necessary to reach out to others, or maybe that it just never occurs to them. 

There are more and more children being born who are considered to be autistic….or neurodivergent.  Mostly it is called "pervasive development disorder" right now. The terms change all the time, but your term is much more humane.  I have to say that there are so many toddlers who are neurodivergent that I suspect, aside from all sorts of toxins and immunizations that might be a culprit, that perhaps a new breed of human kind is emerging, one that will adjust to the Age of Aquarius better than we could have before.  Who knows, maybe we are getting ready for an extraterrestrial influx.

Thanks for your post.  I like your smile.

Hi Raymond:

"Long time no hear from."

Thank you.


  My grand daughter is neurodivergent.  She is 2 and 1/2 and I have known this about her since she was about 3 weeks old.  She also may be psychic.  If the people who like to categorize other people get ahold of her, they will categorize her as autistic.  This I wouldn't mind so much as it would give my own burden of this information a rest and let somebody else carry it for awhile.  All other family members seem to be in denial or unwilling to comment on it.  No doubt they are frightened of the negative emphasis.  You are right…there is way too much emphasis on the negative and way too little on the positive.  I know my grand daughter is talented - she already wants to use the computer and I have half a mind that she knows what she is looking for.  But socially she has no real concept of what people are for.  People stump her.  Or so it seems to the "normal" person.  It appears she has no need for people, except for her basic needs."


My neurodivergence was first diagnosed when I was in preschool.  With a history of severe Dyslexia,Dyspraxia,  I  was a child that resembled that resembled an autistic child,but I didn't have problems understanding emotional/social cues. My mother told me that I understood them as a baby. She told me that I would stop doing something that she didn't like after she gave me a certain look.  My mother told me that when I was 2 years old,  I also created my own sign language when I got frustrated when people didn't understand what I was saying. I was an excellent swimmer since I was 3 years old. I walked home from school when I was in kindergarten.  I was misplaced with mentally retarded in 1st grade,and so I was mistook for mentally retarded.  One of the problems is that there are numerous causes for neurodivergent issues,but they get treated like the are all the same. A genetic ADHDer with the DRD4 7R gene is not the same as a person who has ADHD is caused by vitamin/mineral deficiencies. A genetic Autistic that inherited from his parents or had spontanous genetic mutation is not the same as a person whose Autism is caused by lead poisoning.   People looped them altogether,and they get treated the same way. It makes no sense.

"

Mercury trine Neptune indicates a sensitive,imagination,intuitive mind that thinks in pictures.  A strong right hemisphere processing.   That seems to be the common thing with people with a genetic type of neurodivergence.   I have similar signature -  Neptune in 3rd, Mercury conjunct Sun/Neptune midpoint, Mercury parallel Neptune. 
That grand trine is awesome!  She will be identified as gifted in school. I am very sure of that.   She has Sun trine Moon in watersigns like me. I have Sun in Scorpio trine Moon in Pisces.  Venus oppose Uranus might indicate unconventional way of relating to others. The Uranus aspects definitely indicate an independent,innovative,original type of person. I can't help thinking that with the grand trine involving the 3rd house ruler Uranus, she will be fine in school. She has the Mercury trine Neptune which seems like a easy connection between linear,left-hemisphere and nonlinear,right hemisphere.  I am curious how she will be when she gets older. She may not need any special help when she goes to school. 

"That was a very long and very interesting post you wrote.  I disagree with one thing.  When you mentioned the 11th harmonic being about seeking the help of others, and that neurodivergents do that, I understand what you are referring to, but I think those individuals who have come back around to teach or write books (people like you) are doing it to provide awareness for the future so that others like themselves will not be mislabeled and distanced.  It seems it is not in the nature of any of these spectrums to consider reaching out for help.  In fact, like the grand trine in my grand daughter's chart, it is a trait to not feel that it is necessary to reach out to others, or maybe that it just never occurs to them. "

Great points.
Actually I meant about the social consciousness part. I think that I misunderstood "the ability to reach beyond one's self for help" 


"There are more and more children being born who are considered to be autistic….or neurodivergent.  Mostly it is called "pervasive development disorder" right now. The terms change all the time, but your term is much more humane.  I have to say that there are so many toddlers who are neurodivergent that I suspect, aside from all sorts of toxins and immunizations that might be a culprit, that perhaps a new breed of human kind is emerging, one that will adjust to the Age of Aquarius better than we could have before.  Who knows, maybe we are getting ready for an extraterrestrial influx."

I think that it could be that autism is being more recognized.  Many autistics have been misdiagnosed as mentally retarded. That's the same with other neurodivergents including myself.  Also autism used to be known as form of schizophrenia, and so many have been misdiagnosed as schizophrenics. Even today, antipsychotics like Risperdal are being used on people with autistic spectrum to treat behavior problems.  One of my main concerns is that the symptoms of neurodivergence overlap with schizophrenia like poor coordination,left/right confusion,eyetracking issues,memory issues,hypersensitivity,and other things. I was misdiagnosed as having schizoaffective bipolar disorder because of my neurodivergent speech called "cluttering" which is common in people with Dyslexia,Dyspraxia,AD/HD which are neurodivergent conditions that overlap with each other. Most neurodivergents have more than 1 neurodivergent condition.  Mary Colley, one of the founders of Developmental Adult Neuro-Diversity Association pointed out that stuff.  She has Dyslexia,Dyspraxia,ADHD just like I do.  She wrote a book on Dyspraxia too.   I do believe that toxins,heavy metal poisoning are involved in autism,but in the low functioning types as in the ones that have intellectually handicaps.  Dr. Temple Grandin talked about that, and she is autistic.  She is the most famous,successful autistic in the world.

I am planning on creating a non-profit national neurodiversity organization. It's to help people with neurological/learning differences like Dyslexia,Dyspraxia,AD/HD,Autistic Spectrum. It is similar to DANDA in UK, but it will be for all ages.  I want children and teenagers to helped.

I did an astrological post about my decision to form non-profit organization
http://www.linda-goodman.com/ubb/Forum24/HTML/203200.html

Here is a post on the objectives of the organization
http://www.linda-goodman.com/ubb/Forum25/HTML/001047.html

It's going to be similar to DANDA in the UK.   I didn't know about the term, neurodivergent and neuro-diverse until I came to Dyspraxia group on yahoo in 2004.
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/Dyspraxia/

  DANDA was formed because it was found that most Dyspraxics at the Dyspraxia support group had other neurodivergent conditions like Aspergers,Dyslexia,ADHD. Many of them were wanting to find out about Aspergers groups.
