Charles Obert- Saturn the Old Crone: Exploring the Symbolism of Saturn as Feminine

In this talk we will examine an early piece of historical textual evidence pointing to the possibility that Saturn may have been classed as feminine. We will look at how this fits in the system of traditional astrology, and the balance and symmetry of its symbolism. And, we will explore how this could play out in interpretation by examining charts of strong and significant women.Charlie Knitting
