Sometimes our best laid plans take an unexpected turn. Expect to spin in these new circles as we enter August and the Sun opposes Neptune and Uranus. If you are intent on following your dreams, don’t be surprised to find yourself wafted on clouds. Happy landings!

LEO (07.24-08.23) Proud Lions will have to find the happy balance between their personal goals and the needs of partners now. One thing can lead to another and before you know it, the lines are drawn. Don’t let things come to that. You will find that by mid-month sexual sparks fly and you can either rejuvenate current relationships or ignite new scratchy ones. ’Bout time!

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Are you tired and bored at work? Don’t listen to your inner voice when it comes to any job-related actions. August could be a great time to unwind and bake on the beach. It is not the best time to change work processes or introduce any “creative” solutions around the office. When in doubt, stick to the tried and true, boring as it is, queer Virgin.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Proud Libras love an adoring entourage and August continues to bring friends and followers to your door. Excitement brews and the good times roll. Your social calender revs into overdrive where too much can soon become too, too much. And, this is bad? By mid-month, you need to get back down to work. Now that will be difficult!

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Gay Scorps must be careful not to neglect their home and family this August. Your career takes off and offers wonderful opportunities and rewards. Unfortunately this can come at the expense of other areas of your life. There is only so much time in a day and only so much energy and attention that you can focus at one time. Make your money now and then spend it generously later.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) People view you as a sage through the month and why not? Not only do you have some fairly good ideas, you can express them in a wise and profound manner. Of course, all bets are off as the month progresses. If you insist on pushing your point around and at the top brass, you might find yourself talking to yourself from the sub-basement.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Love is certainly for sale now. Pink Caps find that their wallet can become an aphrodisiac as lovers ask and receive. It all results in fabulously heady times. But expect a morning after headache when the bills come due. Well, maybe by then you will find someone who can support you instead of vice versa. I suppose we can only dream.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) August hearkens in a time to reinforce current partnerships or develop new exciting ones. Aqueerians can capture the attention of anyone they want. Not only are you especially generous and considerate, you are also sexy and attractive. Hurry before the magic dissipates and you revert back into a frog, or at least your usual aloof self.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Stress levels can build up and Guppies are well advised to find outlets to lower the tension. A relaxing vacation is in order. But if time and money are tight, consider various forms of meditation, yoga or even massage. The benefits will be felt by mid-month when you can more easily focus on personal projects without feeling like roadkill.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams seem to rely too much on friends to do the heavy social lifting through August. It is not that you want to be totally out of the picture or behind the scenes, it’s just that you think that they have all the right answers. But as the month progresses you will discover that often you are your own best advisor. So consider all their opinions and then wait.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Retirement sounds pretty good right about now, doesn’t it? But don’t count your nest egg before it is hatched. Queer Bulls think they can slide off the corporate grid, work from home and still get the job done. But deep down you know that this will only serve to reinforce bad habits and lead you into wasteful diversions. Or is that the plan?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Great thoughts have even greater impact, that is if you can sugarcoat the message so everyone swallows it. Pink Twins may desire to pursue personal glory, but any notorious actions will impact your professional reputation. So, if you have a hankering to join the nude Olympics, expect to see your photo on the front page of the company newsletter.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) If you are asked to fund someone’s pet project, find a way to politely decline. This August gay Crabs find themselves in the unusual position of being hit up for money by folks who weave tall tales of riches. (Usually you are passed over for this honor.) If something is too good to be true it probably is. And that goes double for any international venture.
