Let’s see where our emotions take us as Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. Armed with boundless love, optimism and a spark of energy, we take a leap of faith off any and all cliffs. Take a risk. Yippee! What a cool and refreshing feeling…all the way down.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? It must be you, pink Cap. So dress up and take it to town. Turn up the volume on your innate personal charm. The people you meet will have an explosive effect on your activities and projects over the next few months. Choose your groups and make merry. Make a few others, too, while you are at it.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Who are those ghouls, the voices from the past who haunt your dreams and every waking hour? Every passing spirit with a gripe chimes in with an opinion. Aqueerians begin to doubt their decisions and prefer to be swept up by the cosmic ebb and flow. But, the secret to success is to listen to your gut and avoid back seat spirit drivers.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Your social card fills to overflowing. Guppies are up for anything and anyone and can get into extreme mischief if they are lucky. Polish those pearlies step into the social epicenter and see who notices. But, before you trot off to new grazing areas, check to see if the resident herd is to your liking. You have quite a few choices. Sample every morsel.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) There is a new corporate star on the horizon. It is the confident and magnanimous proud Ram who manages to impress senior staff with a heretofore hidden talent or two. Make your mark now by revealing your best and brightest ideas to those in  power. Timing and place are everything. Mumbling to yourself in the restroom has very little corporate impact.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Your life is suffused with more fizz than actual soda, but what the heck. Float your boat to new adventure and new who-knows-who. Don’t linger in drydock, queer Bull. Pull up your anchor and ride this joyful effervescence to a new port of call. You may find some buried treasure along the way. Just be careful when you walk the plank.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) They say it is not the heat, but the humidity that make things uncomfortably sticky. Pink Twins take it upon themselves to raise the temperature in any steamy interaction and must live with the sticky consequences. Avoid catastrophe by carefully watching the signposts. Will you become slippery when wet or just another falling rock zone?

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs wax poetic about how they cherish relationships above all else. There is some truth to the sentiment. But right now, all best-laid partnership plans take some surprising turns. Emotions run high and you can fall in love with the concept of love. Will you wander from pillar to post with your heart in your hand? Yuk. Pack a paper towel.

LEO (07.24-08.23) More can be accomplished at the water cooler than at your desk now. The fates bring a combo of luck, timing and shocking honesty. Proud Lions can use their dramatic flair to capture a few golden nuggets of gossip and other useful information that will make their work easier. Ask the right questions and carefully listen. Then go for the jugular.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Every now and then an opportunity comes along that is irresistibly tempting. Queer Virgins surrender to the overwhelming urge. Life can become one big party where anything goes. But, how far are you prepared to go? The trick is to balance these impressive offerings and make the most of them. Trick can then lead to treat. Boo!

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Ever-mobile proud Libras find that they are more home centered. Rather than feel hemmed in, the happy-home tides will fuel the fun which is both unexpected and memorable. More activity and dust are stirred up with all of your domestic activities. Speaking about dust, how about a little housekeeping while you are at it. Hint, hint.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Even your whispers can shout volumes, so think before you speak now. Use the time to foment some rather compelling, creative and shocking theories. Who is this otherwise status quo, conservative proud Scorp? This can be a time of change, albeit brief and potentially temporary, if not thought out sufficiently. Revolution! Or, something like that.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Money comes and goes. It would be nice to try to harness and divert a bit of it for retirement. An enticing fiscal opportunity presents itself now. Unfortunately, if it seems to good to be true, it probably is. Protect yourself by carefully examining all monetary schemes, doing your financial homework and reading the fine print. It may take you beyond 2042. Or, maybe not. : :
