When you come back to nature you realize this isn’t about feminism or gender, this is about rebirth.
Many pagans see the SUN as the divine masculine, and for those that must see the binary that’s perfect for them. For us that are more into the vibration of neutrality or fluidity, the sun is a perfect example. The fireball is in a constant state of change and as a result, it allows for the planets to orbit it. The sun allows for life to continue on earth.
I felt I didn’t fit in, because I didn’t want to get surgery or take hormones. Simply, somewhere deep inside me, told me to never deeply engage with our modern medical culture. I didn’t like taking medications for my ‘mental illness’ – either. I don’t take ibuprofen when I get a headache, I take skullcap, drink water or vinegar or close my eyes and breathe deep. I am attracted to natural cures, alternative medicine, and vibrations. It’s as much who I am as my gender identity.
When I first began on my path of gender bending, drag, and general queerness I consistently would feel that connections lacked depth. I was desiring something much deeper than how to apply a beard with spirit gum, walk like a man, or find supportive community. It was great that we could connect into safe communities yet I was still seeking something deeper. I found myself reading articles about how ancient and indigenous cultures treated their gender variant people as shamans or spiritual guides!
