Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

I enjoyed some of the conversations we had previously regarding Macho-Men with underneath feminine energy (dominant feminine planets), so wanted a discussion to see how it presents for others?

I have 7-8 planets in Masculine Signs (Air) but Cancer Sun & Pisces Asc. I am Very feminine in dress-up & talk but my thinking is mostly masculine & I've got male-dominant thinking & prefer action/solution to talk.

How do you come across to others based on your dominant planetary energy & Asc?

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

I prefer the terms yin and yang rather than masculine or feminine as I think that limits the perspective. I too have Pisces rising and a yin Taurus Moon with all other planets yang. I look feminine but really I am more "masculine" in outlook and have never had children or a family life that is conventional. This is not to say we are not real women but just active rather than passive and do better with other yang men overall.The ascendant, Moon and/or Sun being yin is powerful and goes along way to being female.

Libran planets tend to bi sexuality anyway or trying to find the balance. However even with Venus Mars in Libra I am heterosexual although have experimented.

. I am never attracted to feminine men and like them rather macho but refined and not coarse. I have been called very feminine and also masculine in attitude. It is all a matter of others' perspective and that is their bag. In this age of Aquariius the stereotypes are breaking down and men can be house husbands and women have a career more and more. It is a good thing.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

I'm not a manly man. In fact I think a lot of you think I'm a woman.

During my Mars dasha I got very interested in my body (Scorpio Rising) and I started getting into Martial arts and body building/fitness, so I'm not as girly as I was. And the beard seems to help. More balanced now.

When I was a kid I had long hair and was forever being mistaken for a girl.

I find it quite hard to relate to men. My friends are mainly women.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

Great thread Blackempress!

Sun in Cancer =yin,
Moon in scorpio =yin,
ASC Virgo =yin,
The first impression I give is that I am shy and ...feminine.
I don't feel very feminine, though. I don't even feel comfortable in dresses.

Mercury in Leo =yang,
Venus in Leo=yang,
Mars in Aries=yang,
Jupiter in aqua=yang,
Saturn in Gemini=yang,
Uranus in Libra=yang,
Neptune in Sagit=yang,
Pluto in Libra=yang,

Pluto in Libra 1 degree conjucts ASC 26.30 degrees =yang
Saturn 27 degrees Gemini conjuct MC 26.30 Gemini =yang
Male-dominant thinking, male-dominant action.
I remember my mom once telling me that her doctor told her that she would give birth to a boy ...
I also love extreme sports.
If someone called me passive, I would consider that an insult haha.


I think, Venus in a tight trine to Mars, has saved the day for me...
otherwise I would probably never have had a proper relationship...

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

I am a very manly woman MENTALLY, mercury is my chart ruler and its in libra

Fire and air signs dominate ie libra sagitarius

I have sun libra square mars and also pluto conjunct ascendant

I wont tolerate any BS at all

Sometimes it plays havoc with relationships but hey big deal, ive had my share of MEN aka father brother bosses trying to tell me what to do and how to be etc before so sod them, had enough of their arrogance and so called authority and patheticness

Having said all that I am very feminine too physically and emotionally

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

Including the ascendent and MC, I have 8 female/yin placements, and 4 male/yang placements. I have 5 planets in female/yin houses, and 5 planets in male/yang houses.

I would not be mistaken for a woman in any case. I very much look like a guy, and by the by I act like a guy. Seeing as I am gay, I so have some effeminate moments, but they're infrequent. Most whom meet me do not guess or assume that I am gay.

On an internal level I will say I am more female then male. I am a very emotionally dominated person, and I must work around my emotions as they are ever present. I have learned how to remain logical, and contain/control my emotional nature.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

i dont agree with the polarities.

http://www.scorpioseason.com/wp-cont...NH7NemgQq4.png

we have Libra as masculine even though its ruled by venus. Its the most feminine masculine sign.

then we have capricorn as yin when it is quiet, but its looking to control or alter courses for rules.

also planets in signs combination can make an extrovert sign introverted.

the sign gemini has two guys. its like a dry and wet polarity. its neutral-like, and kinda sidewinding. it is always kind of extroverted.

also i think yin/yang is rooted deeper in looking past spatiotemporalities to the higher essence where each sign would be balanced.

aqua males are known to be more feminine while aqua females are masculine for some reason. aqua people are definetly more public agressors, but what about when a taurus builds a whole pyramid.


he has a "masculine" sun and moon.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M8G0o9y9HI
and is mostly yang, but his mars is in pisces.
his activity is yang, but its just really feminine.
hes like 30 as well which is a higher muscle/bone/testosterone stage.

yang is the magician and yin is high priestess, but its really about soaking up everything.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

Sun in cancer-yin
Mercury in cancer-yin
Asc. virgo-yin


Moon in Aqua.-yang
Venus in Leo-yang
Mars in Aries-yang
Jupiter in Aqua=yang,
Saturn in Gemini=yang,
Uranus in Libra=yang,
Neptune in Sagit=yang,
Pluto in Libra=yang

I have some similarities in the planets placements as chris10, but different in the Cancerian Mercury, Moon in Aqua, my asc is in the 13 of Virgo, Chris Saturn is conjuct with MC, mine not, among others differences, etc.

I sometimes look more... androginous? I am feminine, can dress up, etc, not an obvious beauty but not all that ugly either (well, it depends on how I am feeling also, if depressed, do not care much about looks that day). I am modest. Like Moog, I get along better with the opposite sex. I am analitical and in some aspects, more pasive, shy, but social, I also internalize a lot.

Maybe those differences (the Mercury in Leo of chris10 vs. my Mercury in Cancer, the difference in the degrees in the asc-hers is late in the sign, mine is dead in the middle), the different Moons, among other factors, may account for some of the more assertive nature chris10 describes about herself.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

Not counting the outer planets, I have 6 planets in "masculine" signs including the Sun and Moon. Only Mercury is in a feminine sign (Cancer). My ascendant is also in a feminine sign (Capricorn). You might be tempted to conclude from that tally that I must be overwhelmingly masculine except in thought and verbal expression, but it's actually the opposite - I look and dress very girly but overwhelmingly prefer to talk to men. I am straight, but this preference extends to platonic contacts as well.

The masculine and feminine classification comes from esoteric terminology, afaik, which defines masculine as "outerwardly oriented, active" and feminine as "inwardly oriented, receptive." That doesn't directly translate to masculine/feminine behaviour. The air signs, for example, are associated with androgyny, but are classified as masculine because they are oriented toward the active judgment of the outside world.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

I believe I am more feminine than most men, I'm also more creative than most. But I definitely have a strong masculine side as well as a strong feminine side, I feel I'm split. Venus conjunct Mars is the main aspect I put this down to.

Sun, Mercury, Jupiter in Aquarius. Ascendant, Venus and Mars in Aries (with Lilith and Eris). Moon and Neptune in Capricorn. Saturn and Pluto in Scorpio. Uranus in Sagittarius.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

Fun thread Empress. I have a Capricorn rising conjunct 12th house Neptune and Ceres in Capricorn - Aquarius Venus conjunct Juno in the first - 2nd house Pisces Sun conjunct 3rd house Aries Jupiter with Pluto/Moon/MC dominant in 10th house Scorpio...(saturn's in the twelfth and mars in the fourth). In other words I go both ways, so to speak.

I worked at a boarding school for boys where there were two staff for a group of up to twelve boys. The double staffing created what was often referred to as a 'Ma and Pa' dynamic. The most adaptable and effective individual who worked there were the ones who could play both interchangeably. That's me. I utilize masculine or yin energy when necessary and I'm confident in that role. When I need to be nurturing then I can call upon that aspect of myself when need be...Outside of work this holds to true.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

Wow! I love you people So much!!!!!!

Will get to each response individually. You folks are right, the thread should've been 'Planetary effect of Yin/Yang' under the Ascendant cloak'!

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

The air signs, for example, are associated with androgyny, but are classified as masculine because they are oriented toward the active judgment of the outside world.--Queen of Wands.

What is the oldest source you know of for this association of the Air signs with androgyny? Does it come out of the old sailing ship nomenclature, as in Hermaphrodite Brig? Are Air signs then associated with earthworms? I have always correlated Virgo with earthworms; perhaps I should have looked more closely at their sexual preferences.

I'm not sure I follow the logic in most of this thread. If I get it at all, it seems like men born under Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio....should be effeminate, sexually confused, ambivalent, or dressed in a tutu.

It is true that in horary astrology the sign-genders may be used to distinguish between a male and female, but in natal astrology the distinction is not so literal.

Masculine-Feminine signs are also referred to as: Generative-Formative, Yang-Yin, Positive-Negative, Active-Passive, and many other terms expressing a very wide array of polarities all of the same essential nature.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has 5 of 7 planets, plus the Ascendant, in feminine signs. Would you dare to say to Arnold, "You are a closet queen"? But then that conjunction of Mars with Uranus in ambiguous (dualistic) and androgynous Gemini has me wondering.

I think it all has to do with our being able to rise above our male/female roles (stereotypes). Just because we have a penis doesn't mean we should be the rudest macho a**hole from wherever. Acknowledging we have within us a varying Mix of both male and feminine characteristics doesn't mean we will act queer, as you said. Being able to accept both sides within us is what makes us more compassionate and accepting of the differences we all have.

Passivity is a gift that allows us to turn the other cheek rather then letting the person have it with both fists. True humanity is a Mix of both Active and Passive behaviors. First we use diplomacy to settle our differences and if all else fails we get out the guns to force our way on them.

Society has come a long way from the usual male/female roles but sadly many men today still feel it's below them to help their "partner" (as in a team effort) to share the duties around the household and if my brother is any indication it seems Libra is one Sign that demands that separation between the sexes.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

Goodness.....and me a Male Chauvinist.

Where I come from, Men are Men and women tend to the chilluns.

I hate to be the one to point this out, but women do not have a penis or the hormones or the mindset of a man. They lack the overt aggression and physical strength of a man. In sum, they are biologically different and can never become a man. And vice-versa of course.

P.S. -- Give your brother a big hug for me.

At risk of being labeled a troglodyte, I cannot for the life of me figure out what is wrong with being a man (in the most primitive sense of the word). Men have, throughout history and since long before history was, protected and defended women and children. You do not accomplish this by being a nice guy and spending your days creating flower arrangements. The difference in the sexes is biological and runs very deep; it is not easily erased. Why some women want their little boys to grow up to become refined, gentle, caring women (a lie on its face) is beyond me. Such efforts can only result in deep internal conflicts on the part of the affected boy (who ends up thinking that being a man is a bad thing.)

And I thought you were an Aquarian. Look around you and you will see that many women do have the male aggressiveness in them but just not as out of control as some men.

We are not talking about how we become a man or a women, through bias and prejudged ideas from some of our parents and peers but about the inner traits that are present in all of us. Having just one male Sign can give a women some hint of maleness, depending on the Sign. Signs give us Active or Passive energies, Behaviors that have typically been thought to only belong to each of the sexes. In the old days our fathers were under the misconception that a man didn't cry and they instilled this erroneous info into to there male children for generations. It's time to come out of the dark ages and realized that as much as you believe in Astrology that these Yin/Yang behaviors do exist and that they are in each of us. Men can and will exhibit the softer Passive traits from their feminine Signs.

It doesn't make them fags just better lovers.

Agreed with most of what you said, probably because we share the Libra dominance.

IMO, air signs tend to balance both & though I don't think I've seen the Aquarius part of the Opp polarities showing but in Libra definitely. I have a big group of both the signs in my life. Gemini Is truly androgynous. I feel very Gemini-Like because of my mercury/Venus there & relate best to Androgyny even though Asc/Sun makes me look very feminine.

It's fun, finding similarities amongst differences.

The Asc creates a cover for the underneath for many, so goes the same for you.

I think generally creativity is linked with the Yin side but I find your description surprising because I would expect more Yang with the Aquarius/ Aries. Interesting anyways.

I'm not surprised with this information. Simple reason for starting this thread was to bring to light the fact that we are bi-polar. It was through Astrology that Carl Jung proposed the idea of 'Anima' & Animus & therefore wanted to highlight the features of the Natal chart for our own understanding.

Arnold is OVER-COMPENSATORY male which is easy to detect from his feminine planets. (Frankly when I see too much muscle I often wonder if it's to do with compensating for their Yin side- have to research this one in planetary terms). If I saw his psychometric tests, I won't be surprised if I can detect it's his because for such men it's obvious.
Personal experience, I had a male in my class who went around beating others, acted tough & was a giant. I saw one of his tests lying on the psychologist's desk (friend) when I entered her room. Out of a university with over 400 students, when she slid that out of my sight she casually asked if I could guess whom it belonged to, on my instant guess she literally had her eyes popped out with a Loud "Wow!"

The point I'm making is simply, that there's alot of information UNDERNEATH us all. I do agree with you that men & women are biologically programmed different but to say that women Can't act/think like men or vice-versa I don't agree. The physical & psychological makeup is different but observe women in the army or even the surgeons, there's a lot of Mars energy & I personally know many women who don't have much 'femininity' to them.

Another personal example, I don't like sitting & talking like ladies do. I prefer company I could take out for sports or movies instead of gossiping. And funnily once upon a time I picked up the book 'Men are from Mars & women are from Venus', I left it mid-way feeling the author was messed up with the sexes & their thinking. I know better now.

I'm Dominant air & Androgynous. I get along equally well with both sexes & men treat me as 'one of them' & same goes for women. We simply need to balance the polarities in our psyche.

Re: Are you a Manly-woman or a Feminine-man under The Asc Mask?

1. I do not have a monthly period (No, Virginia, there is no such thing as PMS.)

2. I can't carry a living, growing new life within my body (But what does that have to do with bonding anyway.)

3. I have invented probably 85% of the world's important inventions and an equal share of its creative art. (Women would have done this if only men didn't hog all the glory and weren't so oppressive. Besides, who wants to ride a stinky, mean old bull anyhow? That's funny, but men do [you know, that obnoxious macho kind of man] and women don't seem so inclined. Might this same trait have something to do with exploration and creativity?)

4. I have worked with women who were "one of the boys." They chewed tobacco and could spit as far as any man. They can buck hay, ride bulls, or drive trucks full of fresh food as well as any man. But a funny thing happens when we all go out for a beer after work and the guys trickle off to their homes and families, leaving us two alone -- she is no longer "one of the boys."

5. A friend of mine used to run a large beauty salon. Now and then she would call a staff meeting and tell her folks how it was going to be. She always preferred gay men to women on her staff, because the guys (gay though they were) simply accepted the new order of things and got back to work; the women would sit and argue about what was fair. There is a very clear and pervasive distinction between a man's and a woman's mentality.

6. Nothing I have said here is meant to imply that women are somehow inferior to men. The only thing said is "we are different." We have different roles to play on the stage of life. Why I should try to change my role into your role befuddles me.

7. 95% of all territorial conquests have been effected by women. I know there have been others, but Maxine Bell is the only woman I can think of who, of her own free will, stepped off into Terra Incognita with the express intention of exploring it. Please note that when she made up her mind to do so, no man attempted to dissuade her.

8. There is one very simple yet extremely powerful difference between men and women. Women do not have to hunt. All they have to do is BE, and the rest takes care of itself. A man, in the very nature of things, must hunt. If you don't know what I'm talking about you have never driven a taxicab on the wrong side of town.

Sometimes it plays havoc with relationships but hey big deal, ive had my share of MEN aka father brother bosses trying to tell me what to do and how to be etc before so sod them, had enough of their arrogance and so called authority and patheticness

Having said all that I am very feminine too physically and emotionally
I also am predominantly fire and air but with water ascendant and Earth moon. I have always had a real problem with men wanting to be the authority always and the deal that women get in society, although it is changing. Once I entered the workforce I was enraged at the way women got less pay for the same work, were sexually harrassed including me, and agitated against all unfairness I saw there. So I am a born feminist as I feel my mother was. However I like men and prefer them as lovers.

Job, taxi and opportunities aside we do hunt... we just call it "dating & marriage".

You obviously have not driven a taxicab on the wrong side of town.

A flower does not hunt; a bee does.
