Venus enters Cancer and infuses our hearts with mushy thoughts of love. But don’t lie back and wait for a delivery. Our ardor has new zing. So, let’s set our sights on the highest brass ring as we ride this crazy carousel. Grab for it.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins find themselves counting their pennies and finding a few dollars in the bunch. Finances sit up, roll over, but refuse to play dead. Good thing too: Why not start to plan for an early retirement? Venus in Cancer enables you to get even the most recalcitrant advisors to give you a piece of their golden minds. Grab a nugget or two and invest it.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Is there anyone who can match the energy and charisma of the gay Crab when Venus enters their own sign? No one! You have a limited window of opportunity to strut and fret your hour upon on the stage.And your adoring audience will beg for more. It’s time for a lot of new starts without the fits. Any dream is attainable now, so set sail. Well, hello sailor!

LEO (07.24-08.23) Proud Lions are given an incentive to show off their best assets without fear of ridicule. Toss out anything in your life that is holding you back from success. Secrets and fears that hold power over you lose their psychological grip. Who can resist doing a good deed or two? Not you! Volunteering brings about immediate rewards. Well, maybe not monetary.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) You are especially charming and attractive right now. Why ask why? Don’t waste a second. Get into the center of the group dynamic and become a dynamo. Queer Virgos can be sociable and diplomatic when they choose to be. Put your talents to work in balancing the requests of pals with your internal needs and desires. Balance in this life is everything.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Venus in Cancer opens the door of opportunity in any professional endeavor. Careers can be made or laid right now if you decide to accept the challenge and agree to make a few compromises. Remember to be charming and benevolent both up and down the ladder. Fates and fortunes may change but a good corporate deed has lasting benefits…or so they say.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Queer Scorps are in for a treat. It’s an excellent time to plan a grand scale adventure and explore faraway vistas if you can. You have international impact and will enjoy every minute of it. Of course those poor wage hounds who can’t afford to break away now will have opportunities to entertain exotically closer to home. Maybe by being creative with your leftovers?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Gay Archers go from cool to piping hot as Venus enters Cancer and pokes the flames of passion. Start cooking on a high flame immediately and enjoy this tasty interlude while it lasts. There’s more than one way to heat the coals. Plant a few delightful seeds of ideas in your love life and watch them sprout and grow. Will they become weeds or flowers?

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Relationships are highlighted now. Pink Caps lust for commitment and may just find it. Seek and you shall find, especially if you improve your packaging. If you are in a relationship, try to teach an old dog new tricks. Cook up new, romantic recipes that will be surprisingly piquant. That is unless you decide to add baked beans to the love stew.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Leave it to Aqueerians to find a ray of hopeful light at work. If you’ve been asked to handle a particularly onerous task, Venus paves the way to easy success. If you have a secret admirer in accounting, the fates see to it that it adds up correctly. Maybe it’s time to revamp that exercise regime so you can vamp your stuff with a particular pencil pusher. Ahem.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Guppies charm the stars from the sky with Venus in Cancer. Your creative juices flow so go with that flow. It’s time to test your artistic capabilities by taking to the stage, writing, painting, photographing or planning a fabulous party. Whatever you do, do it with style. Turn on the juice and make any great gay effort a great gay masterpiece. What will you concoct?

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams make great headway in any home related project. You can pour on the charm in any particularly irksome family issue and make things go your way, at least for a while. Provide some creative approaches to your home design to freshen things up. Then invite kindred souls over to add to the festive decor. If they cook for you, all the better!

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Queer Bulls turn up the volume on their communication. While you are naturally sociable you can now better exploit your talents and charm the pants off just about anybody. (Choose wisely!) But why waste all that brain power on aiming for easy targets? Consider tackling some of your latent long range goals by going on a political offensive without being offensive.
