Fleeting and flighty Mercury gracefully transits three signs this month — Virgo, Libra and Scorpio. Let’s keep ourselves open to fresh ideas as new information comes forward. How often can we change our minds? For some, more than we change our underwear.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Get out of your rut, proud Libra, and see how far your great ideas can take you. Some of the folks you have just met can help you get to the next level in whatever you need. So concentrate on what you need — funding, contacts, moral support — and continue forward. Of course, if you are plotting world domination, you may want to keep a few ideas to yourself for now.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Life has been a whirlwind of ups and downs, intrigues and partnerships. Take a breath, proud Scorp. Consolidate all your disparate information and let your world and its path to success take shape.You will be amazed at how easily things will go now that you have put in all the work. Meet and greet in new circles and expect to meet on-the-square individuals.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If you find yourself less inclined to fight the corporate machine and wrestle with the pinstriped sharks, why not give yourself a much needed break from all the action? Gay Archers will have plenty of time to navigate the waters later. For now, I recommend mellow, stress-reducing activities such as meditation, yoga or deep tissue massage. Anyone we know?

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Getting back to earth after your mind-expanding international jaunts will be hard to do, but do it. This time period requires focus and and strategy. Pink Caps will find that friends will be pivotal to their success. Have you been as sociable as you need to be? Start today by planning some get-togethers with those who know and love you. How hard is that to do?

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Now that you have expended all your excess energy on fun, frolic and vacation, it is time to get back to work. Aqueerians may experience a hard landing in the real world, but the sooner you readjust, the better for your long-term plans. Life is more than a walk on the beach. And, even on the beach, the sand can be too hot. Gird your loins and prepare for the politics.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Guppies can be swept off their feet by just another pretty face. And, why not? You are in love with love and love loves back. Well, at least for right now. Enjoy your thrills while they last, but don’t give up more than a few delicious compliments. Make no promises. Too, too soon, your mind will move on to more grounded ideas. Don’t get tied down while you are tied up.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Do you see a deity as you gaze at yourself in the mirror? Yes, all that buffing and toning has paid off. Direct your gaze to partnerships — whether cementing the current one or finding a new one. Things can heat up quickly, going from cool gaze to boiling passion. Plan things out in your head before you bite off more than you can chew. Or, is that the plan?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Your joi de vivre might have gotten the best of you — partying until the cows come home and then having to wake up at dawn to do the milking. But, if you can concentrate on the job at hand, you can accomplish more than you think in a short amount of time. And, that will leave you plenty of time to kanoodle with you-know-who. Whoo hoo!

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) If you have spent your time attending to home and family entertainment, you can now turn your attention to your job. Focus on what needs to get done by the end of the year and see if you can discover creative solutions to longtime challenges. Pink Twins become attuned to the needs of others at this time. Use it to your advantage to grab that corner cubicle.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Little did you know when you first reassessed your home life that the plans for change could go so well. Whether it had to do with family outreach or a long-deferred renovation or even a complete move, your new personal environment is more in sync with who you really are. Mistakes could have been made, however. Take that plastic orange ottoman for example.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Put your money where your mouth is, proud Lion. Things are now primed for changes of your own making. You have successfully wheeled and dealed your way through the past few weeks, amassing fortune, knowledge and moxie. Now, you must take stock, review the situation, collect your thoughts and get ready to make your move. Stand back world or get flattened.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) This is a highly personal time for you, queer Virgin, where your prior value system may not measure up to your current lifestyle. But, this is not a bad thing. Your mind warp is part of your evolution and will serve you well as you begin new phases of your life over the next few months. Remember, all that glitters is not gold. What do they say about kids and shiny objects? : :
