Chatty Mercury makes a move into Leo. Your words pack a powerful and compelling punch. Show your pearlies to the world and see where it gets you. Hmmm.

LEO (08.24-08.23) Proud Lions are thrust into the center of attention and rub their elbows with the high and mighty. The fates bring you into serendipitous contact with important movers and shakers, albeit briefly. Strike while the iron (and you) are hot. You are the master of glib conversation with crates of unctuous charm and a very oily wit. Don’t drip your oil on your shirt.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgos are a bit more intuitive now. They realize that they can no longer sweep the cosmic dust under the rug and need a good cleaning of their closet. If you can manage to tone down the static and really listen to your inner voice, you now discern the answers to many pressing questions. Rub your crystal ball and see what manifests. Ha. Any excuse.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) As much as you try to hide and fade into the background, there will be someone or something that pulls you back into the social whirlpool. Don’t be shy and retiring, proud Libra. Find yourself a bevy of gay compadres and spread yourself thin. Don’t hang around with the same old crowd though. Go beyond your regular posse and gain some new posse-bilities.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) The powers-that-be are watching your every move. Give them an eyeful of your considerable talent. Queer Scorps can make good use of time by squeezing the lumpen proletariat and finding strategic opportunities to present the best ideas to senior staff. You will charm the corporate sharks. And, if all else fails, go shark fishing with a speargun.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If the routine is grinding you down, change your focus to vacationing. Gay Archers yearn for relaxation, recharging of energies and a bit of adventure in faraway lands. Consider a more exotic destination and don’t scrimp on the arrangements. You will coordinate your plans with a certain someone. The summer sizzle captures your imagination. Is it hot in here or is it you?

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) What is it about this time period that makes pink Caps so lusty and sexy? Why ask why? This can be a great time to surprise lovers with your alluring zest and verve. You can even attract a gaggle of admirers. But, don’t wear your heart on your sleeve. Mystery and a bit of aloofness makes you even more seductive. Play hard to get and hard to hold. Ahem!

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) If there has been an unspoken wall between the two of you, this is the time to break down any communications barrier. Aqueerians sometimes avoid confrontation. In fact, there is no need to argue. Careful diplomacy will work wonders. And, if you are seeking new liaisons, you will find successful come-on lines are a real come on…if that is your thing.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) If your thoughts turn to healthy activities, don’t push them away as idle time wasters. They may prove to be very useful and impactful. Guppies benefit by a review of everyday habits including exercise (or lack thereof) and diet (or too much of). Tend to the body politic and vote for improvement. Yes, it is possible to improve on perfection, as strange as that seems.

ARIES (03.31-04.20) Although the term “creative genius” is overused, gay Rams find a way to make it all fresh and relevant now. There is something about you that is sparkling, exciting and cutting-edge. Your efforts reap big rewards and loads of accolades. But, don’t let it all go to your head. Remain down-to-earth, humble and highly sensitized to others’ feelings. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) There is more than just a little cynicism circling around conversations with family. But, even a stubborn queer Bull can’t help but become more open. This may be your chance for getting to the heart of the matter and in doing so, solve a few long-burning domestic issues. Don’t compromise. Just find a way to bring them charmingly around to your way of thinking.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) You are brimming with grand and dramatic opinions that cannot be contained or edited. Pink Twins are pressed to get a few things off their chests. Does it matter that you have a very short window to get your message out? Be sure to prioritize and don’t delay on the most important points. Intense conversations can become prickly, if you’re especially lucky.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Although you are usually impractical and a bit of a spendthrift, this time period gives you new perspective on old financial positions. Whether you are a bull or a bear, it is possible to reassess how you approach money and what you need to do to strengthen your fiscal foundation. Gay Crabs currently spend to feel happy. Why not happily feel someone else instead? : :
