Take advantage of National Coming Out month by harnessing the energy of a bunch of planets — Mercury, Venus, Mars and the Sun — in flirtatious Gemini. Your social quotient soars and your flair for flair escalates. Show your pearlies for the camera, you charmer you.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins are in the center of the social swirl and can use this time to cement current liaisons and forge new ones. The folks you meet now determine your long-term success. This means that you have to exert special energy to maneuver into inner circles of certain groups and charm your way into the starchambers of certain organizations. Rev up the pizazz machine.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Is there something stirring in your soul that compels you to do the best you can altruistically do? If the answer is yes, this is the time to get started on your path. Expand your charitable outreach, start some good works and try to make a positive difference in the world. It is never too late to gather in the good karma. The trick is knowing where to look for it.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Proud Lions are not the most patient of souls, but the last few months have taught you the value of careful planning and well-timed pacing. Well, now you can quicken the pace. Any long-term plans that have been stuck in neutral can finally be put into high gear now. Be prepared — check your files and your tool box. Do you have them ready to go? Fire drill!

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgins need to be ripe and ready for any professional opportunity. You have done the hard work and now it is time to pave your path to success. Be diplomatic and strategic. Opportunities will become apparent. But, for those of you who have opted out of the corporate scene, it is also a great time to try something new and possibly profitable. I said possibly.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Scratch your itchy feet with a last-minute jaunt. The world is ripe with possibilities just waiting for you to come and get ‘em. Proud Libras can go in style, maybe even with an entourage. But, plan your course carefully so you make the best use of time and money. Create a few international scenes and also see what is going on behind the scenes. Whoo, hoo.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) There is no stopping you. Focus on who you want and go after them. Proud Scorps have a certain special something in their manner that exudes charisma and sex appeal. Your presence is demanded at all the hot parties where you will cleverly cultivate a strong fan base. Make your mark on the dating scene. Ahem. Is that a skid mark I see?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Tie up all loose ends into one strong knot. Consolidate all your disparate projects and people and focus on the basic and important things in life. You have too many things going on and may be ignoring relationships that need a bit of balm. Relax and enjoy who and what you have. Make your summer a summer to remember rather than to forget, gay Archer.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Think strategically. Pink Caps need to survey their landscape and plan for their next move. An office party may provide a golden opportunity to connect with a co-worker. How that connection pans out is up to you. But let’s just say that you can never have too many friends around the office. Especially one in HR who can glance at your personnel records.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Launch your own personal party season right now. Aqueerians need to see and be seen. Reach out. Form planning committees. Don’t hang around the house and wait for a knock on the door. Find creative ways to express yourself and showcase your special attributes. Err, you do have some special attributes to showcase, don’t you? If not, create some!

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Your surroundings can be enhanced and improved. It may be too late for spring cleaning, but it is the perfect time for a summer total redo. Map out a manageable budget and shop for a new domestic look — furniture, painting, remodeling or even renovation. Or, when in doubt, a move to another abode. Perhaps one with a swimming pool?

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Think of something totally outrageous to demand from others and guess what? You snag it. So, draw up a list of desires and see how far down the list you can go before you feel sated. Proud Rams are fortunate in that they never seem to become overwhelmed by an avalanche of goodies. However, it is even easier to manage it all when you share with others. Hint, hint.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) You are feeling pretty good and why not? Life is chugging along and you have found ways to lower your stress levels. Enjoy the resulting rewards of clean living. Queer Bulls find ways to surround themselves with all sorts of luxurious items from good food to good wine to good company. Is it possible that you will fall into a rut? Oh, let’s hope so! : :
