The radiant Sun steps into Aqueerius. Look around you. Personal goals take on a new hue and push in a strong direction from an unshakable force. Carry your dreams to the next level, but also know when to stop and smell the flowers and enjoy your gotten gains.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians can let loose and just enjoy themselves. You are too good to be true with overdoses of charm and charisma. (If you could only bottle and store it for a rainy day!) Display your merchandise and see who buys. Launch new projects and meet many new folks. If you can view life from a different angle, the sky is the limit. Pack a protractor and get going.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Is life feeling dull and meaningless? Revitalize by graciously offering your time and energy to a worthwhile charitable cause. Volunteerism and spiritual redemption are highlighted which means that you should give now to reap impressive rewards later. Bonus time — expect great things when the planets empty out your closet. Talk about a breath of fresh air! Whew!

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Get ready for a wild social fest. Gay Rams seek the company of friends and acquaintances who can reinforce their goals and direction in life. But, don’t let the group-think lead you down a primrose path where you feel out of place. Hold firm to your ideas and opinions and be who you are, warts and all. Real friends love you for your entire package, not just the ribbons.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Don’t despair of not being properly recognized for your professional achievements. You can still bring home the bacon in a big way in your career. Gay Bulls should use this time to their advantage by courting power and presenting their best ideas to those with the ability to help launch them. Examine your life’s direction and see if you are on the right track. If not, change trains.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins are energized to explore and experience foreign places and folks. Pack those bags and explore parts unknown. It’s an excellent time to feast upon the spicy and learn by doing. The knowledge that you acquire now may be of especially good use down the road. Even lawsuits take a turn for the better, but only if you’ve done your homework and remain focused.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs are inspired and can become perspired. Sexual intimacy is stirred and you are shaken. Your hot tub goes from cool to full boil. Enjoy every steaming minute. For those higher-minded types, introspection or meditation on certain issues could result in great psychological breakthroughs. Clear the mental clutter to make room for the physical shudder.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Relationships are accentuated. Even independent proud Lions can get the warm and fuzzies with partners. This is a good time to share future plans and mutual feelings. If you are still trawling for your dreamboat, send out a few search parties. You never know who will cruise by and rescue you. Ahoy, sailor!

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Even rats on a treadmill get a coffee break every so often. And, now, even hardworking queer Virgins smell the java. Sip and relax; you have struggled too long and hard without much reward. Day-to-day jobs ease up a bit or, at very least, you begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ah, but could it be the lights of an oncoming train? Stay tuned.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Proud Libras must admit that life is much nicer. Opportunities to enjoy creative pastimes increase your energy and frame of mind. As things progress, your party train gets ready to roll and takes you to new social events. Anything (or anyone) you try will get you one step closer to where you eventually want to be. So, where do you really want to be?

SCORPIO ( Gay Scorps plant their feet firmly on home plate. Explore your roots to see if they are strong, enduring and provide you with the firm support you seek. One of your greatest attributes is your sense of justice. Use it to right a wrong and strengthen a weakness. Is there a political cause that needs some attention? Pick up the flag. You won’t be carrying it alone.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Speak out, gay Archer. You will upend the landscape and boost your public persona. Chalk up this fortuitous turn of events to good timing. Gather up your thoughts; It’s time to fire off a compelling letter to the editor or a representative or five. Your words pack a punch. Make them loud, proud and uncompromising. Remember, every year is an election year for someone.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) What do pink Caps value most aside from their own good taste and breeding? Financial issues move from the back chorus to the center stage as money becomes the driving concern of the moment. If you need it, you find new and ingenious ways to earn it. You are as you spend …or so it seems right now. Big bucks can make a big splash in your current social pool. Everybody dive in! : :
