Op-Ed: A Reflection on Disability in Astrology

I recently wrote an article for The Ascendant vol. 2, which is the journal for the Association for Young Astrologers.  It is now featured on their blog, and you can read the full piece by clicking here, or on the text below.

Even if astrology isn’t really your thing, I hope you will appreciate it from a social justice perspective, as I tried to start a new conversation in this area.

As a psychotherapist, I want to see disability destigmatized, to be recognized as a unique and valuable perspective in society, and for awareness to grow around the language that is used to describe it. As an astrologer, I want to see disability humanized and conceptualized as a multivalent archetype, not merely existing on a list of potential sour transits.
