Aggressive Mars careens into Virgo while Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius, setting off an eventual square aspect. Welcome a whirlwind of possibilities…and some false messages. Can you control your thoughts and actions? Before you crash into an off limits area, use some common sense to create a buffer zone.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Watch your wallet; You’re a sucker for a sob story. Queer Scorpios can’t seem to spend it fast enough with friends’ encouragement. Remember that money rarely buys happiness. Cheap thrills and assorted romps, perhaps, but not happiness. It would be wise to pace yourself and your bank account for when the real thing comes along.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Did someone light a fire in your career? The fates give you incredible insights into the motives of others and the opportunity to make things happen. Gay Archers can use the time to strengthen their corporate positioning. But, avoid letting your emotions carry you away. Your enthusiasm might scare off someone who does not know you well. Oh, well.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps are pushy and courageous which is exhilarating, but will also increase your personal risk. Look before you leap. Plan carefully. Examine every action before you charge ahead. There may be a huge pothole that upends your graceful stride. Big game hunters would love to have a stuffed goat head hanging over their mantel. Let’s see who gets stuffed first!

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians are raring to jump into the middle of all the action and feel full of vim, vigor and oomph. Not a bad combination! Where will all this wild activity take you? Be careful of being led down a primrose path in love, but remember to be optimistic and keep your sunnyside up. Sometimes enthusiasm alone makes a lousy idea seem like a slice of genius.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Harness the power of your relationships — whether for business or pleasure. One in particular proves pivotal. If your workplace environment is not quite right, you may feel the need to make “improvements.” If so, plan a careful course of action rather than rush into battle with your flank exposed. Sometimes, exposed flanks are alluring. This time it is BBQ.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Planning an especially exotic vacation or launching a great gay global enterprise? Better check your itinerary twice or even three times to be sure that you have every detail correct. And, even then, be prepared for surprises. Gay Rams can mine the outer limits of their potential if they carefully attend to all the tiny details. The sky is the limit. Watch out for low ceilings.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Queer Bulls are sexy hot and can send out vibes that will hit their target. How many targets do you need? Learn to be discerning and choosy or the fates will choose for you. You may experience a burst of creativity and a yearning to lead the herd as you run with all the other bulls. You become the life of the party. The question is which party.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Relationships and the many ways that they can confound, overjoy and stress you take center stage. You want what you want and the harder you push, the harder partners push back. Avoid ultimatums. Maintain your cool with wile and guile rather than bile. With a little sage advice, even Geminis can cook. Do I smell something hot and delicious?

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs can make a strong personal statement now, but be sure that your statement is for a specific purpose and not just for getting attention. This is especially true on the job where your antics have a shorter shelf life. New approaches devised from creative thinking can have great long-term impact. So, put your mind to work and concentrate on the bigger picture. No, bigger!

LEO (07.24-08.23) It’s not what you say, but how you say it. Proud Lions are naturally eloquent. Now, you can easily score points in any argument. Make the moment count. Get the proud word out even if you have to rampage a few political china shops to make the point. Rampage in fun surroundings. The velvet ropes open for you and you can party with the hounds. Howl at the moon.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgins want to put more energy into personal projects, but long-term family issues beckon. How much time can you afford to devote to others? My advice is to placate relatives and don’t draw any lines in the sand. The sand is shifting and tomorrow could be an entirely different landscape. Let’s hope that it is on the ocean and not in the desert.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) There are so many things happening behind the scenes that your life may accelerate into a frenzied overdrive. Proud Libras are elected “Most Likely To Do or Say Anything,” but you can turn this into your advantage if you keep a cool head and careful tongue. Why not tempt fate and shake a few new ideas off your tree. Some are nuts, but some are flowers. : :
