Is there a chart signature for ADHD? I’m thinking of my 2-year-old grandson who is a VERY busy body! Is it just “boys will be boys”? The age? Or something else?
I don’t think you can diagnose ADHD or any other disabling condition by looking at a natal chart. There are astrologers who claim otherwise but I don’t buy it. I’ll make my case!
If Mercury square Uranus makes a person have ADHD, then every person with Mercury square Uranus should have the disorder. They do not! So I’d forget about viewing this situation from that angle.
A natal chart can tell you that a person has an active mind or that they have a lot of Mars-y energy to deal with. Knowing this about your child or grandchild is helpful.
Remember that kids are individuals. You may want a child that sits still. This does not mean that this is what you get! In fact, you can have four kids, all well-behaved and then here comes kid number five and he’s an oddball. This does not mean he or she has a disorder!
You did not send birth data on your grandson, but based on what you wrote, I’d say you have him pegged. You have a hopped up two-year old boy, who is going to need outlets for his energy.
He may very well be a Lamborghini, in a family who prefers to travel by horse and buggy. Before I’d think about clipping his wings or holding him back in anyway, I would get him out to run some laps, under strong supervision. Because if he is a bit wild (as some of us are), discipline is very important.
I’d allow him to train in one of the martial arts, before I looked for a medical cause or cure. It sounds like he has a lot of Mars energy flying around. You may not be the person who can help him get it under control.
You may also want to get a child natal report – pay particular attention to anything in it says that pertains to Mars or Mercury.
