Mars now enters strategic Scorpio. Even if you don’t plan ahead, even if you rush to judgment and even if you leap before you look, there will be some amount of forethought in every crazy action. Does that make you feel more in control?

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) If fiscal matters have been getting you down, welcome Mars in Scorpio and start concentrating on how you can fill your coffers. Not only will you find the right advisor, but with a little more effort, you might find the right financial answers for yourself. But remember, bulls and bears make money while greedy pigs can lose their shirts. Oink.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Mars in your own sign gives you oomph and passion. Queer Scorps will not only forge new paths and create new influential relationships, they will also simply bask in the general adoration that they deservedly receive. Will you wallow in your greatness and become a despot? Or, will you harness your strength and move the world forward? Sigh.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Gay Archers are a force with whom to be reckoned when Mars enters Scorpio. You can accomplish anything that you set your mind to do. Use your intuition to discover, focus on and vanquish all your hidden enemies. You possess great inner power and karmic destiny that will change the course of your life and lead you to a greater destiny. Of course, I could be wrong.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps are more popular than usual and seem to attract crowds wherever they go. Friends and acquaintances vie for your attention and affection. Don’t disappoint them. But be choosy about the who, what, when, where, why and how of your social scene. Today’s headliner can become tomorrows B section — or worse, the comic section.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Even if you don’t have a scintilla of ambition, there is something about you that the senior staff likes and rewards. It is a shame that you can’t bottle it and sell it to others. So, instead of letting this goodwill evaporate, take advantage and move up the ladder. There is always time to take a long lunch once you have the key to the corner office. And it will be a better lunch.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) This is a great time to plan and take a fabulous vacation. Guppies will not only find adventure, they can also discover new things about themselves. So, pack your bags and take off. Somehow, some way and somewhere you will find the funds and the time. Maybe you can travel with a certain friend and share expenses, among other things.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams turn their attention to the hot side of life. Not only are there ample opportunities for quick flings and assorted liaisons, there are also instances where you attract admirers without realizing it or doing very much. Yippee. Rather than cruising all over town, try to find a particular spot to park your chassis. Will you run out of gas or happily putter along?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Relationships take up more of your time and energy when Mars enters Scorpio. And not a moment too soon! A little effort and attention will pay off in big dividends. For those queer Bulls still on the hoof, try trotting in new herds and see who brands you as their own. Before you know it you may be corralled and hogtied. Hey, whatever turns you on.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) If you are buried in paper and minutia, this is the time to get down into the details, clear off your desk and cross a few things off of your “to do” list. Pink Twins are prone to procrastinate, but this is not possible now. Mars pushes you forward whether you like it or not. Concentrate on the job or on your health and diet. You will see great results. Relax later.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs are ready and raring to have fun at all costs. What a nice change of pace! Mars in Scorpio gives you pizzazz and creativity. Expand your social circle, perhaps adding some arts activities to the mix. Suddenly, you find yourself on the “A” list with access to any group of your choosing. Will you go for the gold or something less shiny? Let’s try and guess.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Survey your surroundings and see if you need to roll up your sleeves and tackle a few home-based projects. You will be surprised at how easy it will be to improve and beautify. Proud Lions love to entertain, but before you invite the gang over, redecorate or renovate. If time and money are tight, lightly spruce with some clever and cheap touches. Anyone we know?

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) You are brimming with great insights. Hone your ideas and communication while Mars sits in Scorpio. Queer Virgins not only know what to say but also when to say it. You are compelling and convincing for a change. So, don’t waste this time on personal wants. Stir the masses and bring on meaningful change and bring on the revolution. Okay, maybe just the democracy.
