Love is sweeping the nation. Okay, maybe just into the corners of our own hearts. But, as Venus advances into flirtatious Gemini and squares romantic Neptune, you can bet that this new broom moves the dust around. Create a dust storm.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) If money has been a source of stress, be prepared to relax and enjoy this respite. Careful planning pays off and even spendthrifts can replenish as they go along. Queer Bulls not only improve their fiscal outlook, they can also enjoy their gotten gains to the fullest. The secret is to share some of it with some your best pals. Some, not all.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Bottle and sell your oozy charisma before you slip on it. The fates deliver more charm per square inch than is safe for pink Twins to release. You attract a bevy of admirers and are the center of attention. Spread your influence in new social circles. Meet and greet but be discreet. Soon there may be too many exes and not enough whys.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Easy-going gay Crabs become more intense, mysterious and prescient right now. They can divine the most divine things and become a sought-after seer to many would-be disciples. Weave your dreamy charms while you can. Too, too soon the foggy magic lifts and there you are exposed on the international stage, warts, farts and all. Will you catch a draft? Achoo!

LEO (07.24-08.23) Enjoy a plethora of pleasant pastimes, courtesy of a posse of pals. Proud Lions can’t escape the crowds. They increase their popularity and become social directors to the masses. But, don’t sit at home and wait for the Pride parade to march to you. Get out there and become involved in new groups and organizations. Provide the party favors and play, play, play.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) You come off as a savvy, ambitious corporate player now. Mold your raw passion into a crafted (and crafty) charm. Put your rising stock back into the career market and get aggressive in how you invest your professional assets. Planning a coup d’etat? Be sure that you really want all that responsibility. Sometimes it is better to be the power behind the throne, queer Virgin.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Curiosity might have killed the cat, but it will provide proud Libras with endless and remarkable out-of-this-world adventures. Don’t hang around the usual places waiting for the usual players to sweep you off your feet. Venture forth and take a risk. Who knows who is waiting for you in some far corner of the world? Let’s hope that it is not some square.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Queer Scorps may not know what hit them romantically during this time period. You are sexy, sultry, energetic and ready for ha cha cha. But, how will you choose your dance partner from all your many admirers? I would not worry about any false starts or phony hearts. You are in it for the chase and if one target misfires, you can easily redirect your ardor and try, try again.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Don’t be surprised if you see a fresh new face staring at you from across the breakfast table. The fates enliven even the most static and boring relationships. Gay Archers have new vigor in their trot, much to the pleasure of their partners. And, if you are on the hoof, this is a great time to run wild. Will you be captured, hogtied and branded? Oh, don’t you wish!

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) If work has been one long, miserable energy drain, expect a happy jolt. Pink Caps feel more on their game and can tackle even the most onerous project with some great results. Put in the effort now. Of course, if you can cajole others to actually do the work for you while you splash around at the water cooler and push your pencil, even better!

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians are inspired to tap into their creativity. Suddenly you are filled with great ideas, exquisite poetry and masterpieces. See where your gay muse leads you. Follow your passion and energy. And, yet you also can be tempted to waste this artistic genius on silly, fun pastimes, short-lived romances and cheap tawdry times. Oh, how to choose? How to choose?

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Even though you are tempted to pick up and travel at a moment’s notice, there is something about your home that is cozy, comfortable and especially wonderful now. You become a happy couch potato. Guppies can enhance their surroundings with fresh decorations or a few very fresh guests. And, thankfully, they will spoil you rotten.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Ask and you shall receive. Ask for a lot and you receive it in large, creamy dollops. Proud Rams can charm just about anyone right now. How much can you handle and how will this impact your social climb and circle of powerful friends? Use this gift judiciously lest one of your amours turns out to be a tell-all. Unless, of course, you want your tail tattled. : :
