In astrology, in everyone’s birth chart, there is Venus and there is Mars. There is the anima and the animus. There is the Sun and the Moon, the active and the reactive. There are 12 signs, 6 yin, 6 yang, and four elements, 2 yin, 2 yang. What gender is metaphysically is not always the … Continue reading Sick Mars: What is Masculine?
