Retrograde Saturn trines retrograde Mercury and provides unintended consequences for any wistful day dream or idle thought. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t be creative. It just means that your words pack an unexpected punch, so be creative…quietly.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Guppies make their big move where they showcase their amazing ideas to a wider audience. Be sure that you start out on the right foot as you meet new, important people. Have your elevator pitch well rehearsed. Preparation is everything — less than flattering first impressions have lasting impact. But, we won’t even consider that as a possibility!

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Let your intuition goad you into some crazy, but genial action. You can ignite a smoldering romance, overcome a hidden enemy or dump some of your psychological baggage. Things are not what they appear to be. Remain contemplative and true to your own heart. Taking off on tangents could lead you to mischief. Hey, but isn’t that what life is all about, gay Ram?

TAURUS (04.21-5.21) Friends may provide queer Bulls with some embarrassing, but memorable moments. The root cause of this platonic snafu may involve some of your past relationships. Skeletons come out of the closet in more ways than one! Enjoy the surprises, maneuver around the embarrassments and forgive friends their well-intentioned foibles. It is all in good fun. Err, isn’t it?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Corporate mandates may chafe at your pinstripped collar. Before you get a rash, delegate all immediate tasks to understanding co-workers, make an excuse to leave work early and step out of the stress. Try to let off some steam at the gym. Don’t quit. Just escape. Pink Twins are not the best revolutionaries. The food is awful and the living accommodations are even worse!

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs are tempted to go off on a spree, but hold your horses until the near future. The intoxicating aroma of faraway adventure may include some unanticipated surprises that are too much trouble. Why not arrange your travel schedule so you can spend quality time in one familiar place with a select group of favorite people? Embark on a worldwide fresserfest later.

LEO (07.24-08.23) If you wear your heart on your sleeve, you may drip on your best shirt. So, show your emotions through actions and strive to be the strong silent type. Proud Lions pile a lot on their plates. Now, put more effort into implementing specific personal goals rather than spreading yourself too thin with time wasters. Can you ever be too thin? Oh, yes, but never too rich.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Lovers find creative ways to pour cold water on your hot time. They are just being protective. You are advised to not take on too many things at once or try to wedge in too many raucous events at the same time. Sensory overload is possible and you will be spent before you can buy. Fried and dried Virgos should never be on the party menu.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) The day-to-day job is bound to stress you. Maybe you think you are on the wrong track or maybe you feel that bosses don’t appreciate you. These blues will pass, proud Libra. In the meantime, stick to your knitting and don’t drop a stitch. Also, pay attention to any nagging minor ailments now. A check-up can’t hurt, especially with a body probe.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Not only do good times cost more than expected currently, but the entire concept of “fun” is, well, not particularly fun. Chalk it up to a temporary lull and use this time to plow ahead on professional projects, proud Scorp. There is plenty of time later to plug into the gay party hearty circuit where you can increase your voltage and watch the sparks!

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) You may think that home is sweet home but right now, home is not quite the refuge it usually is. Something may be out of place. Or, you may be tempted to beat off the uninvited guests with a broomstick. Why not just let the good times unfold in any way they will? Gay Archers are liable to spill the beans on some dark secret. Welcome the burst of fresh air!

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Foot-in-mouth disease strikes any pink Cap with a relationship issue. You are tempted to say what’s on your mind without regard to the nuclear fallout. But, instead of upsetting the applecart, why not wait until there is a more opportune time to push for change? Partners just want a little cuddle. Don’t storm the barricades; you will only stub your toe.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) If you hanker for a raise or more professional recognition, this may be the time to act more than ask. Any lack of corporate enthusiasm should not get you down. They may be pre-occupied. Continue doing what you are doing and become your own cheering section. Actions not only speak louder and prouder than words now, they also bring about change. : :
