(Q): In a composite mother/son chart when there is no sign of gender switching, do you find the roles played out by the mother in previous lives by the moon and its aspects?......And the son would be seen by what sign?
(A): Jeffrey: yes, the moon and its aspects, also the sign on the 4th house cusp, the location of it's planetary ruler by house, sign, and aspects, and the sign Cancer .. the house cusp of where it is ...... the son will be indicated by the sun, the sign Leo, the sign on the fifth house cusp ..
Timing of Gender Switch
(Q): In a chart with a gender switch signature would you use the Pluto/Mars and/or the Mars/Venus phasal relationship to establish how many lifetimes a person has been in the new gender?
(A): No, because the Pluto/ Mars can only tell you how many previous 'primary lives' have been lived relative to the evolutionary intent ... not the subsidiary lives ........ so too with the Mars/ Venus .......
Recent Gender Switch and Gender Reassignment Surgery
(Q): I have a client who has had a recent gender switch (s and n nodes in cancer/cap in 4/10), who has never felt comfortable with their current life gender and who has now undergone surgery for a this/life physical gender switch. Would it be useful to create a new 'natal' chart for the person based on the time of the surgery? and if so, how would I compare it to the original natal chart?
(A): Jeffrey: HI Susan, No, the natal chart is the natal chart and contains the whole story for all Souls, including gender switch issues. The chart that correlates to the surgery will reflect how the person relates to the fact of the gender being switched. Thus, like any event chart, you simply combine the 'synastry' of that moment to the natal chart as an 'imprint' for the rest of the person's life in the switched gender.
Conjunction of Venus North Node and Neptune South Node
(Q): Would that be correct to say that, Venus N.N. conj. less than 1 degree to Neptune S.N. (10'11" Aq.) means the evolutionary intent is to re-establish the Aquarian Age values (2nd house/Venus)in a personalized, individualized way (as Venus is the lower-thus more self-conscious, more dense, personalized octave of Neptune)
(A): Jeffrey: Yes, which really means natural gender relative to feminine and masculine identity.. relationships that are defined this way, with the natural roles therein, and the natural sexuality and its expression as a reflection of that ..
Questions on Pluto dynamics
Hey Jeffrey- I have a couple of questions for you on the material:
Is there a general evolutionary condition when the rulers of the N+S nodes are square?
2) Is there a general evolutionary paradigm when the Asc is squared the nodal axis (what is the nature of the skipped step here if there is a general one)
(A) Primarily this involves an emotional paradox linked with relationships. The cause is that the Soul feels within itself that it has some special destiny to actualize where the feeling itself is primarily instinctual in nature. As a result the Soul desires to have enough circumstantial freedom in order to be free enough to act upon the instinctual desires that will lead to the actualization of that special destiny. Conversely, the soul also desires to complete itself thru relationships .. not as the dominate partner in which the relationship primarily revolves around the individual, the soul, but a relationship based on true equality in which they give to the partner for the sake of giving .. to give according to the partner that which they actually need versus what the soul/individual thinks that the partner needs.
This has then created the emotional paradox for the Soul because the fear that is generated relative to the paradox is a fear of being limited or 'entrapped' within such a relationship that is perceived to then undermine the need for freedom leading to the actualization of the 'special destiny' .. as a result the Soul will re-attract in this life partners from other lives in which the relationship has not been completed based upon the above evolutionary need.
(Q) In the case where Pluto is conj the NN but a planet is also conj the SN and is squared to the Asc, how specifically would this dynamic serve as a block to the NN conj Pluto?
Jeffrey: The above dynamics would be magnified a great deal until the lesson is learned .. and now adding to these dynamics the evolutionary need for both individual within the relationship to actualize their own inner security within the relationship and, depending on the level of evolution, i.e. from the third stage individuated and above, the need to begin the radical deconditioning from the existing societies 'norms' of what a relationship is. . . to begin to return to natural law and natural gender actualized and defined within the relationship ...
(Q): I have some questions about homosexuality:
1 Is it manifested by a soul desiring to become another gender, thus taking more than one lifetime to integrate into the new gender and so homosexuality occurs?
(A): Let's remember that all souls are equally male and female .. as the soul evolves there comes a time in which the conscious integration of that inner male and female, equally, must occur. This typically occurs in a patriarchal society when the soul evolves to the second stage of the individuated state. When this is the case the soul only knows that IT IS NOT the consensus definition of whatever gender it finds itself in whether female or male. Knowing that it is not that the typical inner feeling/ thought is that it must be homosexual because it cannot be defined by the limited definition of female or male relative to the consensus. Yet if you place such a soul in a homosexual or lesbian environment, which has its own consensus by the way, such a soul will still feel 'different' than that consensus .. really not fitting into that environment at all. So what that feeling of being different means and symbolizes is that in fact the soul is not 'technically' a homosexual or lesbian but in fact simply means that the soul is evolving in such a way that it becomes necessary to not only throw off the stupid consensus conditioning relative to gender, but that more importantly it is now time to begin the conscious journey towards integrating the inner male and female equally and simultaneously.. this then means that it is essential in terms of forming relationships that the soul forms such relationships with other 'like-minded' souls. And of course sexual union with others of the same gender can occur as a result only because in natural law that is free from artificial conditioning it naturally occurred that same gender sexuality did occur because the inner orientation was not limited to having sex to have sex but more importantly to making 'love' with the soul more than the body ..
This is a very important thing to understand when one is counseling 'gay' people because some are not 'technically' homosexual or lesbian .. and to help such souls understand where these feeling are coming from when they find themselves with desires or thoughts of having same sex union's ...
Natural law is the cause or determinant of same sex union's even when they occur for soul's who have not evolved to the second stage individuated as above .. but this natural law when manifesting in patriarchal societies can of itself become distorted and thus the manifestations of that natural law are themselves distorted. Relative to the progressive suppression of natural law thru the patriarchal centuries which has caused the build of rage and distortion because of that distortion the psychological damage, distortions, that all to often manifest thru the parental environment can so affect a child that a typical consequence of such damage by a parent(s) can also cause or lead to the 'distortion' of same sex unions as a way of compensating for that childhood damage. From a patriarchal point of view then this then become the determinant of some folks who are 'technically' gay .. and these types then create they own consensus kinds of environments with the same kinds of male and female 'roles' being played out in such environments .. the 'drag queen' for example, or the 'bull dyke' kind of thing ..
(Q): Is it naturally occurring outside of a patriarchal society (my intuition says yes)?
(A): Yes, as above ..
(Q): What are some typical signatures of homosexuality in a chart?
(A): Well 'typical' would correlate with Mars aspected to Neptune, Uranus, Pluto ... Mars in Pisces or in the 12th .. Venus also in these kinds of patterns, Neptune, Uranus, or Pluto in the 8th or 2nd, Neptune, Uranus, or Pluto in the 10th or 4th, mars in the 10th or 4th, and so on .. there are MANY possible combinations of dynamics that can lead to this ...
