Casey Legler – Uranian At Large

I love this chick  – Artist, French, Olympian Swimmer & now the first female model to work exclusively as a male model. I mean, what’s not to like?

She’s Taurus – with a tight conjunction of Chiron, Sun & Mercury Retrograde opposite Uranus in Scorpio. Perfect for a spot of gender bending. Plus she has Retro Venus in Aries (!) AND Moon-Saturn in Leo – that last bit is genius.

It’s like Moon-Saturn in Leo says “lets make a revenue stream out of this, i know, super-modelling & shitloads of media. But we’ll emphasize the Art aspect.”

She is doing her chart perfectly – plus the Time magazine story coincides with her Jupiter Return…Jupiter in Gemini conjunct the Witch Asteroid Circe. Perfect.

In an interview in her New York City studio, Legler steers around phrases like “gender identity” and “gender expression” in favor of having a conversation about freedom.

“I understand signifiers. We’re social creatures and we have a physical language of communicating with each other,” she says. “But it would be a really beautiful thing if we could all just wear what we wanted, without it meaning something.”

Strong Venus-Uranus contacts, Lilith in Virgo 10th trine Saturn in Tau, which squares my Venus Aqua. Energy reader once said i have strongly androgynous energy but she ascribed this to multiple life experiences “not being safe as a woman”. I think it’s more than that. I would say half the days of the week i address myself or think of myself as “boy” and often dress boy (with strong chick touches thrown in). Ms told a tale of being pushed up against a wall, and i gasped: was that her? But no, i was wearing a silver dress, no jacket.… Read more »

Correction: Mutable. I don’t feel “most womanly” of all times then, above all times.

That actually changes. I’m not sure when i feel ‘womanly’ in the traditional sense i just think of myself as gender fluid but i’m born a woman so i guess that’s how a natural woman must be, not thinking about the darn thing so hard, not trying to be what you already are, regardless.

She’s a total spunk and I love the move from gender politics to freedom. It’s amazing what a signifier clothes are and how you can pretty much judge the liberty of a place by the variety (or lack) of clothes being worn.

Thought this transit sounded familiar, she’s the day before me. Hmmmm… well similar swimming traits, and im giving my first vocal performance on that dear eclipse next week.

adore her hardcore adore her.

I watched the video of her the other day and have been in swoontown ever since.

hiddendragonqueen

venus not just retro but actually stationing? and lilith brand-spankin’ new in gemini the day before! loved her after the vid also. this feels synchronistic as androgyny has been on my mind often lately, and how we’re still so hyped up with labels and even more labels and instead of fluidity we have illusions and rigidity. i hope saturn in scorp is activates our whole uranus mini-gen and these boxes get smashed. or recycled into art actually… also lovely to hear “genius” about leo saturn… so easy to get caught up in its detriment as it is so easy to… Read more »

i see a fabulous photo opportunity starring them together.

Oh, thanks for the post. So beautiful, all the scowling andro boys and girls, and the smiley freedom-loving folk in men’s fashion.

Wondering how I missed out on the andro part, but not the andro-admiring and inspired-by part. Life at the outskirts is so awesome.

redqueen

Oh swoon. I could watch her for days. I am so inspired by people expressing their freedom of self through self-image and projected image, i.e. gender bending, fashion, etc. Awesomeness.

i love Casey’s look! gorgeous to the core! i admit i lived as a male for about 6 months before i decided i wasn’t a guy. and gosh why can’t we all wear something that we want without it meaning something?

Personal sacrifice for the welfare of others: ask yourself, “What is my motivation for trying to please others?” There are story threads that you must understand, make understanding connections with. They tend to be threads that bind, constrict, leaving a feel of tightness. The challenge is to break the threads, wiggle free. A sense of free movement signals the place from which you make the right choice.

hmmmmmmmm my main point of sharing was definitely that LAST SENTENCE’S EXQUISETNENCES

I am going to google this because 29 degree scorpio is conjunct (nearly exact) my sun-merc retro, uranus stellium.

Wow! Thank you. I just saw Mystic’s tweet, been thinking about it. Now it fits perfectly to what I’ve been trying to articulate about my natal Jupiter’s placement in the last few weeks.

Love love love, that last quote is so great because of course meaning is always a dialogue and whatever our intent, we have no control over the the reception and response, I think the more awesome ppl like Casey simply being whatevs, the harder it will become for people to attach a particular meaning to anything, not exactly meaning-free, but closer.

Such a coincidence because I used to rock a collar and tie in my twenties and have had a yen to break out the purple silk again.

Raché (Aqua/Tauri)

uberlove as well…didn’t care so much until i saw the video of her and then i swooned.
im not into girls much at all in normal life but have the biggest crush ever on AzMarie Livingston from ANTM. don’t even care about that show except for her, check her youtube vids on walk for male runway vs walk for female runway! so hawt i either love andro girls or really girly girls, nothing in between or beyond.

venus conjunct uranus and neptune and pluto here.

Love her and all….and her bone structure to die for but, the only place where I would say hmmm, is that, well, fashion IS about meaning something..Iddn’t it? Gender wise tho, I get it…We had a male cross dresser in the doc office the other day and one of the girls was all giggly like and omg, there is a man in the reception area dressed like a woman.. Okay, he did have on a pink polka dot mini dress, white pumps and a handbag strewn across his arm and no, we don’t see that often here, I’ve seen one… Read more »

Just a note: it’s generally considered to be more politically correct to refer to a male dressing as a woman as “she”. It shows respect towards them to acknowledge their choice and expression of gender xx

sweetpea

Oh, I see that. Hope didn’t offend anyone…Just ignorant about such things…x

ArcherGirl

LOVE her! Reminds me of early kd lang when she was walking the gender divide so eloquently 😉 the cheek bones and jaw lines on them both OMG!! I love to see people who feel really comfortable in their selves to push the boundary on what a particular gender roles/clothing mean…awesome!

I was reading about her yesterday – she is amazing! I love her view on gender with the focus being on freedom, this is seriously good thinking right there people, seriously good!

I have to say I love masculinity in women – it’s often when it isn’t presented openly that I really see it 😯

Anonymous

Me too Baristagem re the masculine women. Always thought I’d make a better lesbian, except I prefer men sexually. *sigh*
Not many men like a masculine women. It worked for me in my 20’s & 30’s – the whole gamine tomboy thing but not so much in my 40’s.
Oh well, I am what I am and I’m not changing! I’m a fixed Scorp!

Baristagem

Good for you! I wasn’t especially referring to the tomboy look as such, although many women do look fantastic in a suit for example 😯 ! I was thinking more like women such as Megan Gale – Aussie model/host/business etc. I find her really masculine but it’s not an obvious thing as such.

Oh she’s just awesome. I’d add “We can! It only means what WE want it to mean!…but that doesn’t mean we won’t get hassled/queried, unfortunately.”

Love manning it up now and again. I do the Nick Cave (pre-hairloss) look quite well.

Ms.

yay. my thoughts exactly. I actually used to have a drag act, well a few.. and did want to be a boy when I was a teenager at a certain point but I have made my own thing and peace with a lot of this now I am older etc. I love it when good peeps get the spotlight and say the right things. Talk about the freedom, make a film about a couple that just happen to be inter racial. This is real life not disney, yes.

yes darling ms, real life. real life feeling so much more real right now. Oh how I long for the firm hand of Saturn to guide me. He is like the dreary fellow traveler who got off the train one stop before me and took the road map with him. Melancholy haze. I used to dress and go the hair like a boy too. Onset of puberty. My mother totally freaked out. It wasn’t about BEING a boy. It WAS about freedom. Wanted my life free of blood and breasts and the ‘right’ way to sit and stand back. The… Read more »

Ms.

it’s a process barely talked about and for a lot of people growing, that up gender identity and body issues run much deeper than some teenage not in love with my body stage, which it all gets lumped under for the most part. Mothers rejecting you stage is not uncommon for this as the father with the boys due to a rejection of the traditional value system. It’s a tough run without supportive parents but all that soul mining is gold because when you are able to express and state your place you become this kind of educator for your… Read more »

For a lot of people growing up, sorry. speed typing here x

Ms.

and the freedom she talks of is exactly the point to which all people can just be, you move beyond it all. love

I am just me in that respect and beyond it all lovely. Just sharing my experience of it. The shock of strangers suddenly wanting a piece of you was intense for me at the time. It all felt so grabby. Mars square neptune & sextile venus and lilith conjunct ascendant. Men want/ed a piece of me. Go figure. But your words are kind so thanks even though they’re not necessarily on target, You’re a sweetie x

Ms.

ah I get you now. was talking about the bigger picture there and bit zombied from work but I totally ID’d everything you just said then, much similar to my own exp x

Seabird

I so get this. I was so shocked by becoming suddenly visible and sexually desirable at the onset of puberty that I almost managed to make myself invisible. Plus the actual physical stuff, I’ve met many women like me over the years, who excelled in athletics (for me it was sprinting and highjump) until tits and male school-mates and PE teachers turned us off the whole thing. I wished intensely to be a boy from my early childhood right up until my mid-twenties. Now I understand how to harness the best of both worlds and don’t feel the need to… Read more »

yep. definitely identified more with whatever was identified as boy-stuff than girl for a long time. menstruation the awkwardness of breasts and male attention (from age 12-13 form adult men, what the fck) made me love being alone and hooning around out in bushland on a horse with like-minded pals MUCH more exciting than some other restrictive gender girlie crap.

Anonymous

i went to the bush too – nature did not change its ways because I had changed – it was safe there. and I don’t mean that in a way that I was inherently ‘unsafe’ but just that the physicality of these new things made me feel vulnerable and alone. People were being nice one minute and then lunging at the yayas the next – revolting. Like nothing was your own any more and you had become public property. Like your own body had turned against you.

yeah. something we have no control over now controls our lives.

and totally yes re public property. nothing’s changed!!

I forget where I read it but something like %75 of Australian women identified as “tomboys” in their childhood/teens, which gives the lie to the whole idea of femininity, sure some parts of it can be fun and nice, for both sexes to play around with, but femininity is a total construct, its aim was to constrict women physically emotionally and mentally. So these women were not “tomboys” we were just women, but the fuqed notion of what “women” must be made us think that we were a special case, tomboys as opposed to girls who played lay down misere… Read more »

i totally get where you’re coming from with that card playing analogy.

Am becoming more and more aware of the patriarchal constructs in place that condition women to sit and stand a certain way. Because it’s ladylike.
The lady don’t like actually.

Anonymous

yes. i decided that ‘grace’ doesn’t necessarily have to be synonymous with femininity tho. Men can be graceful too even if they’re brickies or weightlifters. So, it’s one thing to be considered ‘unladylike’ and another, to me, to have grace / good conduct. otherwise god help me i would be most unladylike at times lol
