Each client we consult with is a multidimensional being, arriving with a unique set of identities and attitudes. Not everybody’s gender, sexual orientation, relational preference, class or cultural background neatly align in socially conforming ways. In this discussion, we will critically examine our responsibility as astrologers to establish a set of consulting values that assist clients in proudly embracing what they want for themselves. We’ll also look at the astrological dynamics that reveal non-conforming/queer desires in the chart, providing us a chance to open supportive dialogues with our clients about these issues.
