Smile Re: Masculine and feminine in astrology

I'm going with Assertive and Receptive in place of Masculine and Feminine.

Smile Re: Masculine and feminine in astrology

I read an esoteric article which attempted to portray Saturn as a female goddess. But, in ancient times, including the Middle Ages, Saturn was always portrayed as male. Cronos/Saturn had a wife,...

Smile Re: assertive vs. receptive, to Chrysalis

Makes sense. Also ties into the tropical Age of Capricorn, the Sea-goat, ruled by Saturn. A very sea-faring Age, which is usually attributed to the Neptunian rulership of the sidereal Age of Pisces.

Here's something. Way, way back, before the internet, information wasn't so easy to come by. I was wondering why the Moon and Sun were Domicled in only one Sign, where the Planets were given two...

Would you say all the Cardinals are assertive?
For tropical astrology, they're used to locate the other Signs, so we could bring "Locational" into play. I'm reminded of the 4 "Cardinal-points" of a...

I'm going with "Assertive" and "Receptive". Fire and Air are more Assertive, Earth and Water more Receptive. The gender issue is cultural, not something intrinsic to the Signs themselves. [IMO]

Saturn, physically speaking, not metaphorically, is wetter than Jupiter. Cold, yes. But not dry.

The Sumero-Babylonians originally called her Queen of the Heavens, Inanna/Ishtar.
The Romans did consider Morning-star (planet Venus) as the male god Lucifer, meaning Light-bringer. This was an...

Smile Re: assertive vs. receptive, to Chrysalis

Assertive and Receptive might be a better way of describing the differences. Point taken--no need to bring in Eastern philosophy, even though it is such a good fit. A man can be be more receptive...

Smile Re: Masculine and feminine in astrology

There's a strong tendency to confuse yang for masculine and yin for feminine. Moon in Aries is yang, meaning assertive. In contrast, Moon in Pisces is yin.
In 12/12, Moon in Aries is a Facilitating...

Smile Re: Masculine and feminine in astrology

Even the Moon, which is so decidedly feminine in the Greco-Roman pantheon, is genderfluid; as evidenced by the fact that the Sumero-Babylonians considered it masculine.

I have Mercury in Pisces and Venus in Aquarius. Both Mercury and Venus have dual, yin/yang natures, moreso than the other indicators, because they're inside of Earth's heliocentric orbit and appear...

Genderfluidity is best described astrologically as a combination of the two innermost Planets, Greco-Roman Hermes/Mercury and Aphrodite/Venus. Using the Greek names, the combined form is...

My earnest contention is that the Domicle-ruler of :aquarius:, :uranus:, is both feminine and yang, as well as the goddess of the Heavens and Muse of astrology. NOT a deposed, neutered, victim of...

There's a blue and red Yin and Yang symbol as well as a black and white.
Interesting that combining those two colors results in purple, the color of rulership in some cutures.

It's taken as a given that the Sun is Masculine and the Moon is Feminine. But in the ancient Norse religion it was the exact reverse. In the first recorded religion, in ancient Sumeria, the Moon was...

This is right [IMO]. Yin and Yang explain it as well. A man can be more Yin than a woman, and a woman can be more Yang than a man.
