Sometimes boxes are ok, like a cat I like to jump in the boxes and prance around, but then I jump to the next box because it's a new box. People should be more like cats.
As a Mercurial Scorpio, I know I like to play mind tricks and I can be a bit dark in thought (Venus, Pluto, Chiron also in Scorpio). Try mind games with your son, especially if he has Mercury in this sign, give him something he can physically minuplate (fantasy card games, instruments, books).
The AC is only the outer surface but any planets near it or other angles will be a high action planets, your sun very well may be a Scorpio even if his sun isn't in that sign (find the ruling planet and it's sign early on) if it is in fact a planet in either Aquarius or Scorpio after he developes some interest in the occult let him manipulate his own natal chart.
By giving him this power your building trust with him and your teaching him that he can Control his own energy and eventually pioneer and teach him that he can't control others.
Well, interesting you say this and I'm really happy astroassist started this thread cos it got me thinkers ng.
The teacher told me my son punched a kid at the playground today and he threatened to punch another one.
What you say about making him feel free and in control is very true, but I have to be careful not to give him too much power. I discovered that distracting him with games helps to calm him down so he doesn't have that aggressive tension to lash out at ppl for whatever reason we don't know. But the child psychologist suggested distracting my son with fun and its working at least now for me. God knows how the school will deal with him.
