Government health officials report that the number of children diagnosed with ADHD rose by 22% in the four years between 2003 and 2007. Researchers suggest that the increase in diagnosis may be due to the fact that children in less affluent homes are now being treated in higher numbers than previously seen.
Among 15-17 year-olds the survey showed a 42% increase. This is particularly interesting to me because of the correlation between this age group and the Uranus-Neptune conjunction of 1992-1995. I have long suggested that children born under this influence have brains that do not operate the way other brains do. The combination of Uranus (electricity and transdimensional communication) with Neptune (the transcendence of the material world) in the natal chart has proven to correlate with exceptional creativity and emotional sensitivity, AND the rebellion and inability to focus that we find with anyone whose natal chart shows a strong Uranian influence.
Over the past seven years or so since Uranus entered the sign of Pisces, the sign that is ruled by Neptune, a phenomenon called “mutual reception” has linked Uranus and Neptune once again since Neptune is in Aquarius which is ruled by Uranus.
Some scientists have suggested that technology is changing the way our brains operate, as I suggested in this earlier article. In any case, understanding the astrological makeup of our children can be of great assistance when dealing with personalities that are very different than those of previous generations.
I’m not so sure that calling these anomalies “disorders” and treating them with pharmaceuticals is the wisest way to help these children to adjust to the changing world around them. I personally believe, as do a growing number of transhumanists, that humans are in fact mutating, and that these children are in the forefront of that evolution.
