The world is our stage when the Sun enters dramatic Leo. Nothing — nothing at all — can rain on our Pride parade. Expand your scope, see the larger picture and be sure to make it in high definition.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Is money the key to success and happiness? You seem to be keeping score. Does it all add up? A drawback to all of this crass materialism is that deep down you’ll realize that an insecure personality is an insecure personality no matter how many bucks try to bolster it up. But, you won’t know if dough raises your inner worth if you don’t knead it!

LEO (07.24-08.23) Get ready — Proud Lions are pushed onto center stage. Your charisma peaks and you can charm just about anyone. While you may yearn for approval of your ideas, don’t wait for others’ nods before you act. You have a very short window of opportunity to get personal projects launched. After that, you’ll be biding your time until the right moon phase.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Explore your spiritual side and discover who you really are beneath all that glamour, glitter and greasepaint. If your closet door squeaks open a little, don’t be afraid of opening it much wider. There is nothing to worry about. The worry is, of course, when you hide your true feelings from the world and maybe even from yourself. Why do that?

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Proud Libras are the champions of gay rights. Become a rainbow flag waver and get involved with the movement. Maintain momentum and get the word out. The danger here is that your desire to belong may cause you to sublimate your personal desires in order to blend in with the groupthink. Not all champions have to think alike. But, are you that bipartisan?

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) A fire is set under you professionally. Proud Scorps are obsessed with career accomplishments and the need to make it big in the eyes of others. In fact, you now feel the urge to make your mark on the world and seek approval from those in power. Wade into the corporate shark tank and kanoodle with the suits. You may emerge unbitten and victorious. Then again. …

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Life is a pilgrimage for gay Archers. So, expand your horizons by traveling to new exotic vistas or embarking on a brand new course of study. Although the sky is the limit, don’t forget to focus on the individual trees in addition to the entire forest. Will you live for the moment or plan on some distant utopia? Maybe you can find the cosmic balance and do both.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps are even more intense than usual. Sexually, you dive head first into a steaming tub and boil until you are one big prune. Seek a meaningful connection to others and a deeper connection to your inner self as well. Plumb your depths and see what deep Freudian urges bubble to the top. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, but often it isn’t. Hmm. Tell me about it.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Relationships become the be-all end-all for all Aqueerians. There seems to be nothing more important to you than to have a significant other in your life, so cement current relationships or seek new, more fulfilling ones. But, balance is very important. Give your heart freely, but don’t give away your soul. We are looking for a partnership, not a limited liability corporation

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Even picture-perfect Guppies can use a little nip and tuck now. What better opportunity to achieve the sublime than the present? Work it! Increase or totally revamp your exercise regime. Or, begin one, you lazy thing! What about your diet? Your body is a temple, after all. Attract a few new worshippers and a increase your collections. Wine and song anyone?

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams have a spring in their step and a song in their heart. Keep it going by getting involved in a range of artistic pastimes and projects. Can’t dance? Don’t ask me, but you can try other outlets like music or even sports. The most important thing is to completely relax and have fun. There is also the chance of a little romance, so save some creative juice for that too.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Queer Bulls feel the tug and pull of home. Blame it on the heat when you plop in front of the TV rather than boogie the night away in every dive. Give yourself the time to recharge your batteries and plan your next big move. Then emerge rested, primed and far more in control of your personal agenda. There will be time to dive into those dives once again.

GEMINI (05.22-05.21) No matter how extreme your ideas or politics, you have the uncanny ability to make yourself heard and understood. Folks may not agree with you, but they listen to what you have to say. So, put your thoughts forward and take up the charge on a good cause to change minds. Or, if you are shy, exercise those brain cells with study or debate. Use it or lose it, pink Twin. : :
