ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Gay Aries canít resist the lure of the international arena. Anything you do to expand your vistas will prove to be personally successful and satisfying whether itís a long overdue vacation, a course of study or latching onto a jolly new group of cohorts. Try approaching life from a new angle and you can find yourself dancing to the pulsating beat of a different drummer.
(Apr 21 - May 21)
This month brings on a case of the touchy feelies which can really rattle otherwise placid queer Bull. You may feel particularly close to a certain someone and at the same time, fear possible rejection. Ah but what have you got to lose? Here is an easy mantra: Donít let your fear of flying prevent you from exploring new heights.
(May 22 - Jum 21)
Focus on relationships and how you value them. Pink Twins ache for romance and dreamy tete a tetes. Well that can only take you so far, my friend. As we begin to think about the upcoming holiday season, you are encouraged to examine partnerships on a more pragmatic, self interested level. What are you getting out of this act? Are you ready to take it on the road?
(JUN 22 - JUL 23)
Pink Crabs can now get down to the nitty gritty at work. Party with the masses at home and use work time to prioritize tasks and tackle onerous projects. It is a productive time even though you are not the boss. Might I suggest a reassessment of exercise and diet? Itís never too late to get any drydocked relic in ship shape for cruise season. Yeah, even you.
LEO (Jul 24 - Aug 23)
What proud Lion could resist the excellent vibes that come with any artistic pursuit? Get into the party spirit and let those creative juices flow. The most important thing is to have fun, fun, fun! Any off-beat pursuit can take you into new directions and bring excitement and (dare I say) romance. Study nude photography and see what develops in the darkroom.
(Aug 24 - Sep 23)
Queer Virgos need a bit of t.l.c. And now you find the comfort you need right in your own backyard. Gather kindred souls together and do more at-home entertaining. If a tiresome family issue lands on your plate like an old stale sandwich, re-cycle it to the dump without any guilt. After all, life is too short to have to eat last weekís leftovers.
(Sep 24 - Oct 23)
Revise your personal message. Gay Libras are loathe to express themselves freely around others, but now you can hardly resist mouthing an opinion or five. Good! Shout it out and let others know whatís on your mind. Itís those nasty little second thoughts that often undermine a great gay concept. Now you have no excuse. Naughty gets you further than nice.
(Oct 24 - Nov 22)
You may find yourself counting your pennies. Financial matters take on a greater importance in your life and you may find yourself in a more acquisitive phase. But possessions alone cannot bring happiness or security. There is a valuable lesson to be learned this week. Give and you shall receive. Uh, do you need my mailing address?
(Nov 23 - Dec 22)
Welcome a new, rejuvenating phase in your life. Donít be shy or second guess yourself. Get out into the festive social swirl to meet and greet. It is an excellent time to begin new projects and perhaps initiate a change in appearance. Ahem. Start by dumping that tired old wardrobe. Oh. Did I say dump? I meant refresh.... with something of this century.
CAPRICORN (Dec 23 - Jan 20)
This is a good time to release your personal gremlins and start to live your life to the fullest. Unfounded fear has been holding you back for too long. The lesson to be learned this week is that all sorts of ridiculous nonsense are responsible for creating barriers to your fulfillment. Clean out your closet and haul all trash to the dump. Of course some pink Caps are into trash....
(Jan 21 - Feb 19)
There is more to be gained from running with the herd than standing on the sidelines. Get involved in new group activities during the holiday to expand your social circle. Friends help you in unanticipated ways, if you only ask. The most important thing is to figure out how you can best interact with others. Remember Aqueerius it is better to listen than to speak. Uh oh.
(Feb 20 - Mar 20)
Most recently you could care less about what those in command think of you. However, this month ushers in a time of greater retrospection. Even the feistiest Guppie manages to pour into pinstripes to face the corporate music. Ever dream of territorial domination? Get ready for a new gust that strengthens your prospects. Please be a benevolent dictator when you reach the top.
