"The conditions of one's life are imprinted at birth and one of the most
important of these conditions is the nature of one's sexuality. Thus a chart
of a homosexual shows distinct homosexual tendencies in terms of zodiacal placements,
and homosexuality would be as natural to that individual as heterosexuality or asexuality
or bisexuality would be to another."

Alan Oken, one of the foremost astrologers in the world today, is the
author of various astrology books dealing with sexuality issues (Saturn in bookish
Gemini in the 8th House of sexuality ruling his 3rd House of literature -- with
Saturn conjunct the astrology-minded Uranus discovery degree).
One of the ways in which Oken has pioneered in the field of astrology
is by discussing non-straight sexuality issues.
His Astrology: Evolution and Revolution, includes charts for
a bisexual man, a gay man, a lesbian, and a transsexual (Christine Jorgensen)
amongst others. Also, his Complete Astrology, a
compilation of some chapters from his earlier books,
contains a discussion of the Gay Liberation Movement (trail-blazing Mars in the
8th House of sexuality at the
point of a T-Square from
MH-ruling Sun in the 5th House of creative expression, and Neptune -- ruler of the
5th in the 11th House of astrology).
Besides his celebrated books, Oken has published over 200 articles on astrology in
various journals, and made frequent media appearances, as well as having his own
radio program in Sante Fe, New Mexico (Uranus aspecting both luminaries, all aspected by
