**PLEASE NOTE IF YOU ARE LISTENING TO THIS ON AUDIO I USE A LOT OF AIR QUOTE WHEN I'M USING THE PHRASES "DIVINE MASCULINE AND DIVINE FEMININE" WHICH MAY NOT TRANSLATE**

On this New Moon in Scorpio, we have the opportunity to fully inspect and emote the revelations we’ve experienced about our personal occultism, taboo experiences and magic.
Anna Joy begins this episode by highlighting the recent Queer Witch Community (join in at https://www.facebook.com/groups/thequeerwitch/) discussion about “Divine Feminity vs Divine Masculinity” that was triggered by comments made in Episode 24: Love is LOVE with Tonya Gonzalez (trigger warning in the aforementioned episode and this one for possible discussions of gender essentialism and binary notions of gender).
Anna Joy discusses the general context of the Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine theory within mainstream New Age, Wiccan and Pagan cultures, what it is founded upon theoretically and why it is so mainstream. They also discuss the violent use of the Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine theory within Second-Wave Feminism & Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism and why it is important to consider the experience of gender non-conforming, genderqueer, trans and nonbinary witches when sharing your viewpoints on magick.
Next, Anna Joy imparts their own, nonbinary understanding of the idea of Divine Dualism as a replacement for what shall now be termed “The Divine Gender Binary” through the lens of astrology, including:
-the relationship between the Sun and the Earth
-Venus and Mars within the natal chart
Building off of the final point, Anna Joy launches into a discussion of how to use lunar cycles in your magickal practice, and how to specifically work with all New Moons as well as today’s New Moon in Scorpio.
Finally, we have a brief discussion of Jupiter in Scorpio’s influence over us for the past 12 months and how today’s New Moon in Scorpio is the season finale of all this activity.
