Astrology and Aspergers seem unrelated. But are neurally different people explicable via astrology? Are Aspergers and associated ‘spectrum’ modes of intelligence just Uranian? As described here, the ADHD personality descriptions read like a list of Mutable characteristics.
After a plausible Mars in Virgo style rant re mismatched socks, a Scorpio male accused* me of being Aspergers. *I say “accused” as he sounded accusatory. I don’t think it is a crime. At first confused, I consulted this online list of traits, and I relate to a lot of them.
But they are all reactions and quirks that I have always thought of as broadly Uranian.
Astrology And Aspergers – Look To Uranus
That is, reflecting a strong dominance of astrological influences from the planet Uranus, the 11th House and the sign of Aquarius. Uranus is my ruler – as i am Aquarius Rising – and it’s flanked by Mars + Pluto exact in the 8th House, so it is strong. While Uranian people are not fantastic at fitting into the dominant social paradigm, they’re the inventors, activists, circuit breakers, and creatives. And, they don’t want to fit into that paradigm anyway.
Maybe it’s society, education, the economy, and politics that needs to change?
My doctor, who is highly Uranian, thinks it is a “new mode of intelligence.” Tech entrepreneur Peter Thiel (Mars + Moon + Pluto in aspect to Uranus) prefers to hire people from outside the neuro-typical ranks.
Now i have some new optics on my character traits. Could all those things that I thought of as broadly reflecting my Uranus-driven nature were blips on this so-called spectrum? Does astrology have some input to the Aspergers knowledge base?
