Colin Bedell, a self-described gay Gemini Twin from Long Island, New York, is on a mission to make astrology more inclusive of queer identities.
‘The soul has no gender,’ Bedell recently told Refinery29. ‘We have to move beyond body and sexual identification if we’re going to be integrous with this spiritual system.’
Bedell began studying astrology at age 12. ‘I’ve always had a pull to the metaphysical, mythological, and mystical. And astrology stands at that intersection beautifully,’ he tells GSN.
By age 18, Bedell began chart analysis. And at age 27, he opened his own professional astrology practice, QueerCosmos. Bedell also works as an astrologer for Cosmopolitan.
‘I am reverenced by astrology’s ability to bestow clarity and peace to people’s hearts,’ Bedell writes on his website. ‘That’s why I’m committed to ensuring QueerCosmos expands access to this conversation for all.’
