Special Coming Out Month Astrological Profile
A Special Astrological Profile of all the Closets in Your Chart
in mind that every October is National Coming Out Month. What better way
to prepare and celebrate this liberation than to open up, explore and
expose all the closets in our horoscope. As a public service, I offer
a special astrological outing. Astrology charts have three closets; the
first is ancestral stuff (garbage that family foists upon us; conform
or else!). The next contains the deep psychological and sexual challenges
we face in merging with others. The third is more intuitive and spiritual.
Its where we allow our own self-undoing through the prisons we create
for ourselves. (Ready to break out?) Read ahead to see what's behind each
closet door that needs airing out:
ARIES (MAR 21 - APR 20)
All your closets are ruled by water signs which means that you're more
emotionally involved with those areas of your life than most folks.You
have more attachments to family, home, deep sexual commitments and spirituality
than you would care to admit in a public forum. (Dont worry, your
secret is safe with me!) Gather all kindred souls and create something
for yourself that was denied to you by Mom and Dad.
(APR 21 - MAY 21)
Accept me for who I am or tough luck! Gay Bulls who seem so emotionally
committed to others can turn off the spigot and go their own way if their
needs are not supported. You probably never faced inner conflicts of who
you are and how people would accept you. Instead the fire in your closet
houses enables you to seek the company of those who would accept you for
who you are, hooves and all.
(MAY 22 - JUN 21)
You probably had the most difficult time coming out sexually. Part of
the problem is endemic to Geminis in general who are unable or unwilling
to choose or settle down with one special person. However, in the case
of gay Twins, chalk up the extra angst to dour Capricorn sitting in your
sexual closet. You can run, but you cant hide, so why not do yourself
a favor this October and talk to someone who can help.
(JUN 22 - JUL 23)
Pink Crabs seem emotionally centered on the outside, but I would bet that
all your closets are swirling with hurricanes and tornados. It must be
all those air signs in there, stirring up your neuroses and making you
try desperately to seek balance, harmony, justice and logic when none
may exist. Crabs don't have a backbone, but you may find one tucked away
on a back shelf. Try it on for size.
(JUL 24 - AUG 23)
Seek and ye shall find, pink Lion. All your closets are ruled by water signs
which indicates that you should allow your emotions free rein. Family restrictions
never seemed to bother you; you are able to undermine the current regime
rather easily. The pothole exists in your sexual expression. Dramatic as
you are, there are some things that even yo u won't discuss openly.
(AUG 24 - SEP 23)
You may not appear to be a firebrand, but dont let naysayers and
homophobes get in your way! All your closets are full of fire and it's
evident that throughout your life, its been your way or the highway.
Remember that fire is not condusive to quiet contemplation. Try stepping
back from the heat every so often and take stock of who you are bo dy
(SEP 24 - OCT 23)
If you have any qualms or barriers preventing you from coming out proudly,
it probably originates from family baggage. Your closets are ruled by stable
earth signs which provide you with ample common sense. However, Capricorn
casts a pall over your rootsand I suspect Mums, Dad and the
clan are less than pleased with your lifestyle choice. Tough. You gotta
live your life.
(OCT 24 - NOV 22)
Passionate Scorps glide into their lifestyle choices far easily than other
signs. This is because all your closets contain air signs which blow and
cool off the hot embers of any raging temperamental fires. While you may
play the sexual gayfly (after all, frivolous Gemini sits in that closet)
you know how to handle family issues and are spirituall y in harmony, thanks
to diplomatic Libra.
(NOV 23 - DEC 22)
What do you get when you combine a big mouth like Sag with closets filled
with emotional water signs? A lot of wailing and yelling perhaps, or maybe
a sarcastic spot-on appraisal of where others a full of garbage. Your
venture out wont be quiet and dignified, but it will sure entertain
audiences. Out loud and proud is always the best way, I think. Others
will have to adjust.
(DEC 23 - JAN 20)
Serious, conventional Capricorn is anything but where your closets are
concerned. This is because they are filled with rambunctious fire signs.
You are regal and dramatic sexually, but probably need a lot of confirmation
from lovers. Be aware that these ramrod fire signs will not take no for
an answer when family dictates get in the way of your inn er needs.
(JAN 21 - FEB 19)
The only closet that appears to creak is the one containing secrets, personal
undoing and spiritual fallow. Ever hear of the old saying that you are
your own worst enemy? It's possible that all the junk that you stuff away
and hide is beginning to fester and smell. Open up and toss it out! Happily,
other closeted potholes in your chart are less problematic.
(FEB 20 - MAR 20)
Spiritual Pisces may feel at odds with the barriers in their closets, but
thank goodness all those air signs blow a clean breeze through every so
often. The worst I see is fragmented nerves and related stress, but like
everything else, this too shall pass and you will have the satisfaction
that you are living your life openly, freely and unafraid.
