I recently had the opportunity to do a reading for a transgendered lady. In the course of that reading I discovered something astounding, something other astrologers flat out do not believe when I tell them: the surgery of the transsexual created a new person astrologically.
The original birth chart held forth as accurate until the surgery. Then the surgery chart was the accurate one for the years thereafter.
I can’t seem to be able to get this published in the standard journals, so I’m going to present some brief casual material here in the hopes that more trans people might get their charts done, and so that the real import of the surgery might be appreciated by all.
For those who think that Vedic Astrologers should adhere only to old Indian culture, please remember that there are numerous references in the ancient textson transgender situations.
Here are the charts.
Our native originally had the rasi chart below.
Note the salient features:
Her new life has articulated a number of important changes that are of this chart alone:
She herself says that she believes she has chosen a relatively tough series of challenges in order to learn from them and grow more complete. I see the import of the change of charts to be not so much in changing her life in the big picture ofqualities of dharma, artha, kama, and moksha but in a radical trajectory change or arc of actions to get there.
For example, an interesting thing is that she would have been out of Saturndasha at the end of 2008 but will now have to wait until 2013. Her Mercurydasha, which comes next, should be considerably better in this new incarnation however with that amazing Laksmi Yoga within a Saraswati Yoga, gifts of two female Goddess energies, by the way.
Another thing that would be easily testable is that her relationship with her siblings, difficult before because of a planetary war, and difficult now because of Saturn debilitated in the tenth in the new drekkhana, might reach a place of healing in the Mercury dasha.
The surgery seems to have allowed the setting of a new stage for her to be her highest self. I wish to thank her for her time and emotional investment in answering my questions. Best of luck to you!
