Turn your ha ha ha into ha cha cha as we welcome July. Any steamy thought or comment boils over. Mercury opposes Pluto and packs a jolt. Aim your missives carefully…and shoot from the lip.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs may chaff at the leash now. Not only do you ache for some time alone, you need it in order to re-approach, refresh and reassess certain cloying relationships. Are partnerships giving you what you need? Honesty will be the best policy, unless it is brutal honesty. So, be sure to add some sugar to every bitter pill to avoid indigestion.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Keeping secrets to yourself will not move the needle on the job. Proud Lions with ambition need to be forthright in their opinions, especially when it has to do with their role in the organization or with the expectations of their co-workers. Are you meeting or exceeding your agreed upon goals? If not, prepare for some big changes over the next four weeks.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Sitting at home and eating in front of the television may have its charms at other times of the year, but in July the fates demand that you expand your social reach and get out of your safe cocoon. Queer Virgins can meet new and interesting friends now who will prove to be pivotal to your future happiness. Press and impress — and I don’t mean the couch cushions.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) You are brimming with great professional ideas. Can you get anyone in authority to listen to you? All bets are off unless you find important and powerful folks from other areas of your life to come to your assistance. Proud Libras are charmers, so turn up the heat on your charisma and see how brightly you can burn. Stop at warm before you become toast.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) They say “those who can’t do, teach,” but that is plain wrong. Queer Scorps not only can do they are also able to impart their wisdom effectively. So, use this time to spread your word and see how lucrative it will be. Even better, use your knowledge to become an effective leader. Create a new ground swell and use it as fertilizer for your own victory garden.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Gay Archers are known for their reckless extravagance and now is no exception. You are full of love and have no qualms about lavishing your affections and money on a certain delightful someone. But, limit your budget to affordable treats. Sometimes you can win hearts through good deeds rather than grand trinkets. Sometimes.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) You, me or we? That is the question. Pink Caps expect to find all the answers to their life course within another person. But, the surprise conclusion is that you have all the answers you need for your personal happiness all within yourself. Of course, a second opinion from you-know-who can sometimes be appreciated. But, it is all icing on the beefcake.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) There are no secrets at work, so avoid long lunches and mental health days. And, if you decide to cheat on your diet there will be no calorie-free option. The gremlins will gleefully add on the pounds. Aqueerians can’t seem to get away with anything now, try as they will. So, don’t even try. Be honest, thrifty and clean until August.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Turn your attention to creative pursuits. Guppies can expand their artistic impact by enlisting the help of friends. But, an even better, more effective way of making your mark on the landscape is to join new relevant organizations that place you in touch with the experts. Ask advice, listen carefully and then show the world how it is really done.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Even if your home life is not perfect, there is a great deal to recommend it. Proud Rams find that good thoughts take them far with relatives and in their home surroundings. And, with domestic knots untangled, you can focus on manifesting transformations on the job front. Enlist a friendly helping hand to assist you in your corporate climb. Don’t step on their fingers.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Stop talking to yourself or to just your small coterie of rabid fans. Life now demands that you get your ideas pushed out into the blogosphere as soon as possible. Many of your opinions have the potential to change the global landscape while others are mere potholes that will trip you up. The questions is — do you know which is which, queer Bull?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Many pink Twins lapse into mindgames when they really should take a risk and deliberate action. Confound the experts and get up off your contemplative pose. Express yourself with the powers-that-be. Glad handing potentially well-endowed benefactors might wind up delivering you a lump sum or two. Some folks have all the luck!
