The effective practice of astrology has stayed valued for 25,000 years.
With contemporary resurgences in its understanding and the “As Above, So Below” phenomena, the conversation on astrology and comparative spirituality has never been more energetic. The two most inquired topics asked from the astrological aficionado are notions on the self and compatibility. Naturally. To understand meaningful interpersonal connection, we have to begin to discover ourselves. Aristotle said it's the beginning of all wisdom. We are inclined to agree. Astrology is an incredibly powerful and efficient vehicle for both. With the conversation on astrology predating contemporary thoughts on queer theory, the LGBTQIA community has been largely excluded from astrological dicusssion. Chances are, if you’re on our website and reading this statement, you’ve probably looked up what it means to be a queer (insert astrological sign here) but were surely disappointed by the lack of available literature on the topic. You’ve probably tried to research the compatibility between you and your partner but felt uninvited when you read heteronormative gender pronouns.
Absolutely no T, no shade, no pink lemonade to the influential astrologers appealing to the large heterosexual audience and soaring. But given the landmark progression on queer social issues we think it is time to contextualize astrology and comparative spirituality like never before. And perhaps by contextualizing queer experiences with astrology, we can find alternative solutions to advance and legitimize our causes. So come join the discussion! Because the bottom line is - the zodiac, in all its magnificent glory, is a dialogue. It’s a dialogue with enough room for everyone at the table. In the zodiac, there’s specific energy bestowed to each sign; a kind of prototypical magic endowed to all, a dynamic to each two, and a magnificent harmony to all twelve. Every sign communicates something valuable to the other. So we need all your voices in this space to make QueerCosmos as comprehensive and inclusive as possible. You won’t find arbitrary personality assumptions or recycled soundbites like “OMG Geminis are so two-faced! Tauruses are so stubborn! Pisces are so sensitive!” We’ve been astrology conscious for many years and detected a bit more specificity than that. We’re thrilled to share what we’ve noticed along the way, and the dots we connected, the common denominators solved, the patterns we observed, the clarity we discovered, and the meanings we found. Everything we do on QueerCosmos we do with an open heart - we hope you participate with an open mind. We’re so glad to have you.
