What are the homosexual indicators in the horoscope?
I don’t believe there are any indications of homosexuality in the horoscope any more than there are indications of whether an individual likes green beans.
I could have just tweeted that.
My greatest influence in astrological thought is Liz Greene. Where others write about the same old topics of romance, work and money, probably because that is what gets published, Greene ties astrology to mythology, parental relationships, archetypes and Jungian psychology.
Greene points out in one of her lectures that any given horoscope can be for a man, woman, birth of a nation or chicken. You can’t tell from any horoscope if the person born during those energies is male or female.
The horoscope is androgynous.
We are clearly born with physical gender. The energies in our charts, however, are gender free. That suggests to me that some perceived gender traits such as women liking to shop and men liking sports are learned.
Since we are biologically different as gender, we seem to pick a side on any energy manifestation – subject or object.
For example, a heterosexual woman with moon in Cancer might be very “mothering,” asking you if you’re cold, constantly getting you food. A heterosexual man with the same placement might act motherly as well or may project the mothering onto the females around him and expect any and all women to bring the meatloaf to the table (and wash the dishes afterward).
Whether heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual, the moon in Cancer is the raw energy. The manifestation is based on other aspects in the chart and any external gender roles that are forced upon the individual.
In my early days as an astrologer, this subject-object manifestation was difficult for me to understand and explain. For example, I told a woman with Venus in Leo that she was jealous. Her response was, “No, I’m not. But the women I know are.”
Attraction is shown in the chart by the aspects of Venus and Mars and by the 5th and 7th houses. The gender of those you are attracted to is described, but says nothing about your gender or the gender of the beloved.
In the chart, there is no heterosexuality or homosexuality. And you are not a man or a woman. You are just you.
