Both Mercury and the Sun move into Aqueerius and wreak happy havoc in our orderly little lives. And, not a moment too soon! We shed our inhibitions and embrace the world with verve, zest and a bit of optimism. Give it a squeeze and don’t expect to slide along strictly on your personal oil.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Your mercenary tendencies can get the better of you if you cannot balance your value system with your valuation system. Not everything has a price tag, pink Cap. Sometimes you can do something extravagantly special for someone else without expecting a payoff or monetary reward. Of course, those times are few and far between.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) This is your birthday month Aqueerius. Set your sights on a new year with an eye to improving the outer you. Why not experiment with a new look? Everyone will notice and may not even laugh. Remember, this is the time when you draw attention to yourself by just breathing. Pack the breath mints, just in case you decide to do the garlic thing.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) As much as you try to fade into the background, you can run, but you cannot hide. And, why should you? Guppies have every right to be loud, proud and right in the center of attention. It’s getting pretty stuffy in that closet of yours. Knock, knock. Open up and come on out. You have nothing to lose but your straight jacket. And, you gain extra storage space!

ARIES (03.21-04.20) The social world gravitates to you — and you love it. Proud Rams seek popularlity plus and want to be accepted and part of the crowd. Such a waste of raw talent! Don’t waste your precious time on simply dancing along with the hoi polloi. You should call the tunes and strike up the band. But, avoid polkas and anything with harmonicas.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) As you graze through life, take note of any byways, detours and greener pastures that lead you to the next territory. It is time to wring every drop of experience from your sweat rag and make it pay off in impressive ways in your corporate arena. Choose your fights carefully, queer Bull. It would be a shame to be the plate du jour when you were counting on being the head chef.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Events that unfold can make pink Twins glow. Grab the world by the orb, but be mindful of subtle signals that could  send you hints about surprises around the corner. What you think is open season may just be a short window of opportunity. Decide and do after careful consideration. Taste everything that life has to offer except that graying liverwurst.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs set the world on fire and can wind up with heartburn if they over-indulge. Use your insatiable appetite to tie up a few loose ends or create some new ties that bind. Before you tighten the knot, seek some psychological centering. Are you falling into the same old patterns of hide and seek? Lie down and tell me all about it, bubbele.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Don’t let yourself be held back by convention. The fates now set you on a course of over-the-top antics that are bound to get you into mischief. Oh, enjoy! It may seem that you can do no wrong. Take every advantage. Your appealing attitude converts even your most vociferous detractors. Prepare for your deep bow proud Lion and don’t wear undies.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) It isn’t healthy to work so hard, queer Virgin. Stress builds to a breaking point and you are spread too thin among your assorted commitments. Try your best to cut the excess and attend only to the critical. You will feel much better and will be more effective. Spend your time preparing for the future and stop looking in the rear view mirror, unless you are ready to park.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Romance is in the air. Your heart is filled with the possibility of a fantasy forever complete with the pitter patter of little feet. But, be warned proud Libra — your honesty could create a host of unintended awkward moments that can upset your carefully constructed applecart of desire. What goes up must come down. Gee, how sad is that?

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Queer Scorps want to be alone. Okay, not alone per se, but sequestered in quiet surroundings where you can relax, recharge and rejuvenate your essential oils. Don’t retreat too long. Before you feel totally out of touch, reconnect by hosting a big festive event complete with all the trimmings and the brimmings. And, add a bit of secret sauce, you saucy thing.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) You need to look no further than your own backyard for fun, entertainment and gratification. Gay Archers might be peering over their back fence green with envy at the greener grass next door. No need to let the greedy gremlins bite. Actually there is everything you need close at hand and, yet, not underfoot. Stop, look and listen — then act. : :
