cancerAugust grabs us by the short hairs and gives us a tug. Energetic Mars manages to angle and touch almost every planet through the month. Feistiness rules and removes all boundaries and barriers. Ouch and wow! Where do I start?

CANCER (06.22-07.23) If you are ready to party hearty, it is time to release the balloons and start the festivities. This time period not only brings you into some unique circles, it can also lead you to uncharted territories. How exciting! Your creativity knows no bounds so see how artistic you can be. One thing can lead to another, gay Crab. See who you can meet, greet and sweep off their dancing feet.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Don’t be surprised if travel loses its allure for you this August. Frankly, nothing feels as good as just puttering around the house and relaxing at home. And, why not? You have crafted the perfect entertaining environment and you seem to have boundless energy to tackle any domestic project. You can be lazy or industrious, proud Lion. Just don’t stray too far.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgins can toot around the neighborhood and glad hand the neighbors. And, guess what? You may find yourself involved with new community initiatives and chairing local committee councils. Power, such that it is, is yours for the taking. Or, you can channel all this energy into hoisting a few cold ones at the local hot spot. Take that instead.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) August is the time for a financial review and re-investments. Careful planning can lead you to a cushy early retirement, if you can focus on the bottom line. So, ask the right advice from knowledgeable advisers and channel your efforts into profitable endeavors. Or, if all else fails, find a well-endowed benefactor and see how you can leverage those assets.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) You have zip in your doodah and fizz in your fizzler this August. You stand in the center of everyone’s attention, rubbing elbows with the powerbrokers, feeling full of enthusiasm and great ideas. All eyes are upon you, queer Scorp. Now what? Plan your social ascent carefully and deliberately. All is yours for the taking. How grabby will you be?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) There is a lot going on behind the scenes that can change the direction of your life. Folks are there to help you if you can discern friend from foe. And, there is a lot that you can do on the sly that will guide others to do your bidding. Are you able to navigate these ever-changing waters without getting totally lost, gay Archer? I know you have the right paddle.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Friends and social groups figure prominently for you this August. This means that the efforts you place in interacting with friends and acquaintances will take you farther than you expect. You will not only be able to enter new and powerful inner cadres, you will also be able to attain higher status in these groups. Move and shake, pink Cap, while your stock rises.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Focus on your career and long-term plans and be prepared to take another step up the corporate ladder this August. Aqueerians are at the top of their game which means that instead of lolling around a pool, you should be diving in to the corporate shark tank with your harpoon. Go for the big fish and prepare your grill for a power lunch. Yum.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) If you have itchy feet, August is the time to scratch them with a jaunt to someplace exotic and exciting. Or, if you are prone to be prone, choose a languid destination where you can lounge and bake. Guppies without the time or the budget will not go without. Find a spot closer to home and see how you can relax, recharge and regenerate on the cheap. Public beach anyone?

ARIES (03.21-04.20) You rule the love nest this August. Not only do you emit more passion and sexiness that most mere mortals can handle, you are apt to overstep your bounds of propriety and get into madcap trouble. This is not a bad thing, gay Ram, but it is a warning to expect some aftershocks from your uncontrolled zesty zaps. Well, at least your love life won’t be dull.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Volatile relationships may erupt like a volcano. Even sedate relationships can hit a rocky road or pebbled path. Queer Bulls who enjoy a bit of peace and quiet in the dog days of summer may not quite get what they want. But, isn’t this all part of an exciting summer? See what shakes your timbers and go for it. Single Bulls find lush new pastures to graze.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) While work is never on my list of favorite things to do in the summer, you seem to have ample energy and even enthusiasm for day-to-day chores and your job. So, who am I to rain on your parade? Go for it, pink Twin. Clear off your desk, move things from the in to the out box and handle any co-worker who has been getting on your nerves. You can sun bathe in the fall.
