Astrology Bytes Episode 101: Queer Cosmos with Colin Bedell


Bite-sized astrology lessons for total astrology newbies.
Created by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady (psst…I am known for tarot but I’m also an astrology geek!).

Welcome to Astrology Bytes, the astrology podcast for people who want to learn astrology… but don’t have all day! Short, bite-sized astrology lessons.

Episode 101: Queer Cosmos with Colin Bedell

Back when I started studying astrology, the books available were from a heteronormative perspective. There were little if any, books that spoke to the LGBTQ+ audience. But times are changing and authors like Colin Bedell are giving astrology an update. In Queer Cosmos: The Astrology of Queer Identities & Relationships, Colin delivers a fresh, empowering astrology book for the LGBTQ+ community. He joins me today to talk about his book, astrology from an LBGTQ+ perspective, compatibility, issues around shame, and so much more.

Listen in to our soulful and sometimes funny conversation and learn why I think his book belongs on EVERY astrologer’s shelf. (Psst…get the book.)
