MP3: Gender in Astrology – Re-envisioning Our Language for a Gender Queer Future
In an effort to counter hetero-normative language in both Astrology and Culture, we’ll take a look at how to identify a wide variety of gender perspectives in the myths and archetypes of the planets. The word “gender” has been used since Hellenistic times to describe the signs of the zodiac in order to assign how they will manifest events in life. Rhea will present her own playful approach to the use of mythology in the practice of astrology to enliven how we think of the planets and signs in relation to gender-identity. Together, we will examine how frameworks of gender can be both useful and limiting. We will also discuss expanding the spectrum of how we think of gender in astrology so that it can encompass a more fluid, flexible approach, especially in our work with transgender or queer clients.
