Love is fluffy, like walking on air. And, it all floats gloriously overhead until Mercury and Venus squares retro Neptune. Hey, who popped our balloon? Better pack a pillow for that long way back to reality.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins ache to make a name for themselves in the public eye and will try a variety of stunts to juice their ascent. If you are tempted to try something new just to make a splash, stop and think about it. There is something that you are not seeing. It would be a shame to strut and fret your time upon the stage only to fall in a pothole upon your entrance.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) They say that one good turn deserves another, but you could go into a tailspin. Don’t over promise your volunteer time, gay Crab. You will only be rewarded with a lot more charitable stuff to do. Try, instead, to parse out your time wisely, focusing on cementing friendships. A fly-by-night romance may take you to new heights. Beware of getting vertigo.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Will a certain compadre become more than just a friend? This is the time to test the limits of a simple platonic relationship…or maybe not. There is ample foggy thinking going on here and little thought behind it for any future repercussions. Things can get hot and heavy and totally out of hand, proud Lion. Are you prepared for the aftermath? Or, will it be an afterglow.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Your driving need to achieve could hit a go-slow zone. Suddenly, everything that you have been focusing on — your career, your contact list and your next big thing — needs to be refocused and redrawn. Good. Things are still shifting on the political chessboard and queer Virgins don’t want to play the pawns anymore. Checkmate upcoming.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) As feisty as you usually feel, proud Libras may be hit with a bout of fatigue and ennui. Maybe it’s because the world seems too big and unwieldy or maybe it’s because the details of the day-to-day are beginning to pile up and bury you. Don’t completely lose your steel resolve. A zippy renewed vitality is around the corner. So, stand back world!

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) You have that certain something. Do you really know what that is? If so, pour it on and let it slide around. If not, test drive your capabilities and see who hops on board. It is a time of giddy experimentation that can take you to new heights. Fun and creative pastimes take on a dizzying and romantic hue. But, is it a trip to the moon on gossamer wings? Do you really care?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Balance right now will be everything, especially when it comes to family, partnerships and your home base. Relationships require more attention and may conflict with your idea of harmony and happiness. Gay Archers who have a tipsy domestic situation will have to figure out how to stabilize and solidify it. Of course, you could just leave it all to fate.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Co-workers try to horn in on your action and why not? You have managed to create a mystique about yourself on the job. It is how you carry yourself. And, you have successfully wooed the big bosses and seemed primed for bigger things. But, you know the truth, pink Cap. All that muss and fuss is so you can do what you want when you want it. So, just do it.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) The price of a good time just went up, Aqueerius. But ,don’t be discouraged by the ever-escalating price tag for your jollies. There are certain things in life that are worth it, right? Your creativity is at a peak. But, avoid talking on and on about it. There are some things that just need to be demonstrated. Let actions speak louder and prouder than words.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) We are all a product of our upbringing. And, you will clearly see how your childhood has helped to form your progress as an adult. That is actually good news, Guppie, because it is also a good time to break with old bad habits and see the world through fresh eyes. Of course, those eyes may be wearing rose-colored glasses. Enjoy the view.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams who crave feisty words of love will receive a barrage of them now. However, it may turn out to be a shrill drill instead of a thrilling twill. So, be prepared to be underwhelmed or disappointed in the short term. In the long term, however, anything is possible! A secret admirer may not be so secretive. Ugh. Please, remain a mystery!

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Enjoy the bon temps while the money flows and flows. Queer Bulls are into luxury, glitter and gold and spreading it and themselves all around town. Friends get into the act and it is all so wonderfully decadent. But, guess what? You may find that you fritter your money away on wasteful pastimes and unworthy, tawdry companions. Uh, this is bad? : :
