libraPassion stirs up out Octoberfest as four planets dance around in Scorpio at some time in the month. What is actually brewing below the surface? We will definitely find out. Boo!

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Proud Libras become spendthrifts — everything they see they want. This is not a bad thing if you have the cash to toss, but avoid getting into debt over your head for things that can best be described as ornamental junk. (And, that goes for people too.) Stick to the gold standard and see if you can mine your treasures to gain the greatest benefit or even profit?

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) You are in the epicenter of all the action. You are the star and the supernova to which all heavenly beings gravitate. You have the ability to sway hearts and minds. Now what, queer Scorp? Will you be able to harness all of this power, prestige and personality into one large personal gain? I guess we will have to see. Be sure to ask, “Trick or treat?”

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) There is so much going on behind the scenes that some of the intrigue may spill over into the spotlight. Are you ready, gay Archer? Keep your suave aplomb (or find some) as all of your best-kept secrets become public. At any rate, it will be good for the soul and liberate you from any gloomy goblins keeping you down. Just in time for Halloween!

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Your social calendar goes into overdrive and you might find yourself (shudder!) turning down inviting invitations. Everything seems so much fun! But, pink Cap, you cannot dance at two events with just one tush. Make the hard decisions and stick to them. It may even make you more enticing — sometimes playing hard to get makes folks…well, you know.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Put your nose to the grindstone and carefully craft your corporate ascent. You have ample ambition, passion for success and opportunity based on your previous strategic outlook. Plan it carefully and strategically. And, be very sure that you are focused on the right goal for you. Aqueerians will take no prisoners until they get what they want. Then .. heh.. heh.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) If there was ever a time to plan and take a vacation this is it. So get your gear together, check out the who, what, where, when and how and get going! Guppies yearn to swim in bigger seas and explore exotic islands. There is a lot to learn and many experiences to enjoy. Your mind is open and clear — for a change. Learn a thing or two while you are at it.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams like to feel in control of their destiny, but how much control can you wield when so much of the ground below you shimmers and shivers your timbers? Strong emotions abound and your sensitivity is high. You might become wound up in intense longing, strong desires and overall feistiness. How do you spell relief? V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Try not to put too many demands or restrictions on certain relationships. It will not get you want you want and may even bring you the opposite. Your grip may become too tight and cloying for partners and would-be partners. Try, instead, to stay calm and cool, queer Bulls. Before you know it, you can attract the pick of the litter, but only if you are into trash.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Even if you wanted to take more time off from work, it will be hard to do so now. That is because the demands of the job make you feel like a rat on an ever-accelerating treadmill. There will be time to jump off the track in a few weeks, pink Twin. Meanwhile, find ways of lowering your stress either by delegating the tasks you can delegate or ohmming to yoga at night.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Ha-cha-cha, gay Crab. The social circuit heats up to a frazzle and includes you in the charge. You become party central incarnate this October. So, grab the mantle, get your fests together and conjure up a fabulous time or five. But, is it possible that you will overdo, over inbibe and over party to become a dissipated shell of a Crab? Well, that is the plan!

LEO (07.24-08.23) Your home is a beehive of activity this October, so don’t be sad, surprised or feeling lonely if you can’t get out of your front door. In fact, proud Lion, the jolly masses come to you and stir up a hornet’s nest of fun times. Of course, you can always put them to work to improve your humble abode and make it into a pink palace. How about a painting party? Or not.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgos become vertiable chatterboxes this October. They can’t seem to keep a secret or hold back on their desire to gossip. But, choose your words carefully lest you cause undue stress and social rumblings. There is time to open up the curtain and take a peek. Just modulate your message and present it sensibly to willing and responsible ears. No, not the blogosphere.
