Let’s welcome in June with a rush of retrograding “Outer”planets — Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter. They cajole us to upend the landscape and (hopefully) bring about meaningful change. Will you plant as you go or just toss around some mud?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins are usually glib, chatty and flirtatious. But now, it is wiser for you to weigh your words with golden charms to give them greater heft. Pride Month is a good time to consolidate your dreams and desires and focus on what you truly value. This cannot be done quickly or superficially, even though you would wish it to be so.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Relationships undergo extensive change this June. Did I say “change?” Perhaps it is more like an upheaval. Blame it all on a plethora of retro planets that stir up your honey pot. Gay Crabs can go from the apple of someone’s eye to the pit if they try to boss the course. To ensure a happy outcome, try to give more than you get and give it all with a happy heart.

LEO (07.24-08.23) If you think that you can continue to glide along in your job by doing as little as possible, think again. Proud Lions love to delegate to their minions. But times are changing. June is the time to demonstrate more of your initiative, enthusiasm and pluck (at least just enough to fool the powers-that-be). Do more than just show up. At very least offer to make the coffee.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Let your imagination soar! Fun has a way of getting entirely out of hand this June. Queer Virgins discover various ways of getting into mischief and can gleefully squander their assets on wasteful tawdry times. This is bad? But who will pay the piper when the music stops and the bill comes due? Enjoy every libidinous opportunity but keep your dollars…and good sense.

LIBRA (10.24-10.23) There is more happening around the house than usual especially if you are in the mood to spruce your nest. Adding some new decor, moving or adding (or subtracting) a roommate will fill your June with activity and stress. Proud Libras should study all the possible outcomes before they take action. Or leave it to fate and see what is left on your doormat.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) It would be so easy for gay Scorps to while away the summer in time wasting pursuits but that would be a mistake. In fact, June can be a very productive time for you, should you decide to make an effort. The most effective use of your time will be in the research arena — using your smarts to strategize and reach the most receptive audience. Once found, cash in!

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) It is time to calculate your net worth and find ways to increase it. Gay Archers are not usually obsessed with money, but it would be a good thing to use at least part of June to plan a revised investment policy. Ask advice, create a sustainable budget and maybe even ask for a raise. Retirement should not be a life time away, although right now it feels like it.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Your entire persona is going to undergo a dramatic change this June. Not only are pink Caps chaffing to do something new and totally out of character, they are also primed for success. This is a potent combination that should not be deferred. The only risk is doing too much too fast without the right planning. Don’t dissipate your best efforts. Think first, then act up.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Is there something going on behind the scenes that will prove to be interesting and useful to you? I don’t know, but if you don’t sit back and listen to the background noise you will miss it. Aqueerians have a psychic moment or two through June. You can use it as a parlor trick or as a strategic advantage. Hmm, guess which one gets you what you really want?

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Friends are ready willing and able to turn up the frantic fun this June. Guppies with a few good ideas find themselves in the center of the party planning and the director of all the action. Don’t sit back and wait for things to come to you. Get Out there and make your fun happen. Can things go too far and get out of hand? We can only hope so!

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Retrograding planets set June off to a rousing start. Not only can proud Rams reinvigorate their corporate ascent, they may decide to change their entire life path and try something entirely new. Don’t jump into anything permanent now though. There is still too much going on that changes in the next few weeks. For now, stay loose and take a long lunch.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Pride Month provides queer Bulls with opportunities to expand their base of operations worldwide. One small idea leads to another even greater one. Not only can you reach out and make your opinions known, your ideas manage to seep into the group consciousness and move things your way. Will you go overboard in your zeal? Why the heck not?
