    I can see this being equivalent to castrati.

    A castrato is a type of classical male singing voice equivalent to that of a soprano, mezzo-soprano, or contralto. The voice is produced by castration of the singer before puberty, or it occurs in one who, due to an endocrinological condition, never reaches sexual maturity.

    Even if a male child has an astrological sun sign, ascendant sign, north node, midheaven, or a Mercury, Mars, or Moon sign that is/are feminine, or all of those are feminine, it does not necessarily follow a gender transitioning medical procedure must be done or must be done before the age of 26.

    Second, if a feminine planet is transiting a feminine natal planet, that is a transiting phase, not a permanent characteristic.

    “understand gender is a choice and not mandated at birth.”

    Even with astrology being a helpful tool for appreciating psychological diversity, using astrological causes brings us back to the natal chart which is mandated at birth.

    In addition to reading books about life stages (like Passages by Gail Sheehy), astrology also speaks of passages using the transits of Saturn around the natal chart.

    Doing the right thing for the wrong reason is something that is not optimal.

    “Cardona brazenly encouraged districts to hire non-binary teachers, writing, “Modern youth must adopt the principles of a modern world”

    So people like him want people not only to accept non-binary self-identification but also want everyone to self-identify has non-binary.

    “a Faustian Cardona promoted the notion that children as young as ten—4th graders—be taught about gender-reassignment surgery and puberty blockers, which prevent the development of organic, biological sex characteristics. Additionally, Cardona said he had petitioned HHS to pressure insurance companies to fund “gender-affirming care” for school kids.”

    They are doing that because there is no public schooling after age 25 when gender changing medical procedures would not get an objection from those who want gender changing medical procedures to be performed only on adults.

    “As educators we have a responsibility to make sure students have sexual options. We must accept our role. Cisgender parents are not qualified to instruct their children of sexuality in today’s evolving world,”

    #1 Astrology is not something only of today’s world. There were first century Caesars who consulted astrologers. J. P. Morgan consulted astrology.

    I put Astrology with Psychology and Spirituality. As for Psychology, I know Jung did some exploration in Astrology.

    #2 Sociology – I am not sure the sociological causes for gender identity and sexual roles. Maybe population control needs the socialization that heterosexuality is not the only socially acceptable expression of sexuality. Back in the 1980s, there were Sociology books and college courses on “deviance.”

    #3 If biological parents and loving parents are not qualified to instruct their dependent children, then qualify them.

    #4 Given religious rejection of astrological tools, religion needs to evolve. Read Historical Accuracy by Steve Campbell.

    Second, the Bible does not give us sufficient guidance on dealing with a planet with more than 6 billion people using so much plastic that microplastics are in the bodies of not only human beings but animals and beings of air and sea.
