If you feel a tug on your heartstrings, it will most certainly be caused by Mercury which plucks into mushy romantic Cancer. We feel our oats. Prepare to take charge, take action and just take, take, take.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins will contemplate their bottom line. Money becomes the be-all end-all as you plot the most profitable course of action. Much time and energy will be spent on maximizing your profits. But, in the end can it really buy happiness? Well, if not, it can certainly buy extravagant comforts and fair-weather, party hearty comrades. Oh, let it rain!

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Your personal star begins to glitter and glow. Pack the sunglasses! This is no time to sit in the background and blend in with the wallpaper. Get out there and mingle, gay Crab. You have a good window of opportunity to expand your social circle with some interesting new faces. Who knows where your assorted amours are hiding? You soon will know.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Do you feel particularly intuitive? Well, you should. Proud Lions break through the fog and see a bit into the future. Secrets are revealed, conspiratorial plans are uncovered and hidden enemies and their machinations are overcome. So, listen for the rustling underpinnings, let your heart speak to you and go with your gut. Agh! Who can concentrate with all this noise?

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Friends will lead you into all sorts of mischief, if you are lucky. Queer Virgins can fill up their dance cards with some familiar faces. Is there a gem in the trash? Who knows where it can lead? Dance the night away. Don’t stay home and watch paint dry. Create plenty of memories with a certain someone who can help you paint the town pink.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Proud Libras are infused with a certain spark. Every move you make and even every fleeting whim is inspired and calculated to succeed. Certain powerful folks sit up and take notice. You may be poised for greatness and not even know it. Will you capitalize on this internal fire or just be content to toast your chestnuts for a while? Hey, whatever turns you on.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) It is difficult to sit home and contemplate your navel. There are too many exciting things waiting for you beyond your front door. Expand your horizons, learn a few new tricks and be open to exotic strangers. Queer Scorps need to get out and about to explore a few new watering holes. Who knows where love may hide? You may be surprised at how wet you get.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) At heart you are a shy and retiring soul, but there will be none of that right now. Your love life is whipped up to a peak. There is something electric and sexy about you now that attracts many admirers. Gay Archers are ready for action! Choose the best of the seven deadly sins (lust and gluttony?) and take them to the extreme. Just forget sloth!

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Turn all your attention to partners in particular and relationships in general. What is and is not working? What else can you do to increase the excitement? Do something extravagant and bold to shake things up. Those single gay Caps who are fishing for a catch can locate the best pond now. And, yet, the quality of your catch will all depend on your bait.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Work becomes more exciting than usual. You can find ways to increase your productivity. This is an excellent time to get some long-standing projects off your desk. Oh, goody. But, before you feel like a rat on an ever-speeding treadmill, channel some of that energy into productive, toning exercise. You can attract more diners with buff icing than with plain pound loaf.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Guppies are ready and raring to play. You will have a choice of fun venues where you can let loose and dissipate. You can also channel this energy into an artistic course of action and get involved with something earth shaking. Unravel a puzzle, encounter a secret admirer or create a mystery yourself. Inspiration strikes! Or, something like that.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Don’t be content to let others set the pace in love and call the shots. (As if you ever do.) You are now set on a collision course where you must take the wheel and drive. And, you can avoid the pitfalls. The trick is to listen carefully and survey the landscape before you take any action. Preparation is pivotal, gay Ram, as is a discerning eye. Heck, make it two eyes.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) You have quite a few strong opinions that may not be ready for a primetime audience. Can you patiently hold them in and let them germinate? Forgetaboutit, queer Bull. Now, you simply cannot contain yourself. Throw your heart to the wild wind, give your thoughts room to roam and see how your ideas generate action. Just be sure to hire a personal censor. : :
