Wolf, Rhea – Gender in Astrology

In an effort to counter hetero-normative language in Astrology, 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 ways to enliven how we think of the planets and signs in relation to gender-identity. We will examine how frameworks of gender can be both useful and limiting, open to new ways of understanding queer perspectives, and create ethical structures for our work with transgender or queer clients.
