My daughters got here residence just lately with the dvd Hedwig and the Offended Inch, a soulful transsexual punk rock musical, directed by and starring the good John Cameron Mitchell. It started as an off Broadway hit however I hadn’t heard of it. I instantly thought that Yitzhak, Hedwig’s second partner and again up singer, was so sizzling – he jogged my memory of some males I’ve been interested in rolled up into one.
So when my son turned on the dvd participant this morning and the particular options of the movie started taking part in, I grew to become glued, after which needed to snigger after I discovered that the actor who performed Yitzhak was a lady. That they had me fooled (I had all types or rational the reason why his voice was a lady’s!).
There are lots of phrases being thrown round as of late, which I am viewing as an try and get past the strict duality and polarization of female and male. In spite of everything, we’re everlasting souls quickly assigned to a physique and I think that the various variations on a theme have all the time been with us, together with the ever current strict labeling, defining and conditioning of gender and sexual roles.
Most individuals do not suppose an excessive amount of about this as a result of for them issues are clear and simple. After which for some not a lot. Each gender and sexual orientation are on a continuum even when the majority of us fall inside the common bell curve. And, one could be interested in a sure kind however not sexually. Or, as with the most recent idea of pansexual, romantic attraction can occur with anybody, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. The variety of classifications are rising!
It is all very advanced, and searching on the astrology of that is equally advanced since one should clearly first take within the dynamics of your entire chart. Nonetheless, by way of the work of Jeffrey Wolf Inexperienced and others, I’ve seen the next ideas maintain true:
Current gender swap could also be indicated with Pluto or the lunar nodes within the 4th / tenth home axis. This correlates with some emotional disorientation if (from a previous life perspective) the swap could be very current. Barbara Hand Clow additionally mentions the Mars / Venus conjunction.
For basic themes of homosexual/bisexual, the Scorpio / Taurus axis is all the time implicated in some method, notably if involving Pluto, Mars, Venus or Chiron. However, there’s additionally practically all the time a robust Gemini, Leo or Aquarius signature, reminiscent of Venus in Gemini within the eighth home, or Mars in Aquarius sq. Pluto. With the Mars / Venus conjunction, I’ve seen a frequent correlation with the balsamic section however not the brand new section.
Pisces is usually a correlated signature, which could lend the flexibility to be pretty open and boundariless when confronted with the extra distinctive and totally different orientations. I see Mars, or another sturdy Pisces signature steadily when finding out charts particularly of similar intercourse orientation.
After which there’s the fascinating Virgo connection that exhibits up with transsexual or transgender circumstances, which might lend the flexibility to excellent and enhance upon what’s in place.
If I had been to utterly let myself go previous the limitations of conditioning, I might most likely name myself pansexual as I’ve at one time or one other discovered myself intensely interested in somebody in virtually each class there’s. That does not imply I’ve or will act upon these wishes, it merely opens up my thoughts to how fluid this complete space of our humanity is.
There’s additionally a distinction between a sexual attraction and falling in love. Not everybody could also be keyed into that, however it’s one thing that my Venus in Taurus (third home) reverse Saturn in Scorpio (retro in ninth) is aware of too effectively. A lesson for a Taurus Venus goes past the bodily….however from the bodily viewpoint a sure kind drives me loopy…bodily androgyny (somebody who has each masculine and female traits – I put Johnny Depp or David Bowie in that class for example) and entails lots of ambiguity and variety. The Gemini theme in my chart consists of the Venus in Taurus within the third home, a Gemini Solar, Mercury and South Node, which in some home programs falls into the 4th, others the fifth (Leo) which additionally has my Most cancers Mars trine Neptune (Pisces) within the eighth home – to not overlook the Scorpio Saturn. My rising signal is Aquarius.
