Transgender Experiences in Astrology

Transgender Experiences in Astrology

In episode 279 astrologer Michael J. Morris joins the show to talk about using astrology within the context of the lives of transgender people.

We spend the first part of the episode talking about some basic things that astrologers should know in terms of cultural competence in order to work well in consultations with transgender clients

In the second half of the episode we get into more of a technical discussion about how different placements in the birth chart can manifest in the lives of transgender people, eventually going through each of the twelve houses and talking about different possible manifestations.

We also tried to ground the discussion by using several example charts of notable transgender public figures.
