If you are running on all four engines, try to coast a bit. Energetic Mars enters passionate Scorpio and trines retro Neptune in Pisces. That means that seemingly inconsequential small actions can take us further than we ever thought possible…in an entirely different direction! But, don’t panic. Enjoy the ride and expect to take the scenic route.

LEO (07.24-08.23) It is time to make your household an entertainment empire. Improve your surroundings and expand your social circle into a sphere. Increase the home bonhomie. Also, be prepared to deal with some intense issues regarding money and the psychology behind it. Be an open book, proud Lion. But, will you be a paperback, hard cover or just virtual?

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Honesty is the best policy, at least right now. Be outspoken and prepare to take command of the group dynamic. A star is born! You manage to impress the masses and compel compadres and acquaintances to do your bidding. But, is it all for altruistic motives or are you motivated by purely petty selfish motives? Come clean, queer Virgin.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Don’t let your over-riding greed and urgent need to succeed derail your carefully constructed job responsibilities This is the time to survey the field, wait and re-evaluate. Proud Libras can overreact when they really should relax and let things roll off their backs. There will be plenty of time to capitalize on your smarts later this summer. So, for now, ride the waves.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Queer Scorps seek a connection. There is something magnetic about you as the adoring crowds gravitate into your orbit. Don’t be content to rotate in the same circles though. Your persona burns brightly in a global arena. Meet and greet the entire fleet. There is someone waiting for you who has a few tricks up their sleeves. Expect to get shocked…or is it buzzed?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Secret admirers do more than send you anonymous love notes. They quickly pounce! Suddenly, everything that has been hidden is revealed, along with a few things that you would prefer to continue to keep under wraps. There is nothing to fear, gay Archer. Nothing should be hidden. Use the time to cash in on your considerable animal magnetism and let it all hang out!

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps are veritable social bees. Friends and friends of friends fly to your hive. Relationships that you make now have impact through the summer and beyond. You are the mover and shaker of any group. Cause a few earthquakes that change the landscape. Revealed are a few gems ready to be mined, errr, or something like that.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Conceptually, you have some pretty good long-term plans. You know where you want to be professionally and have the energy to put your goals into action. In practice however, Aqueerians are apt to overdo it. You could waste energy with unbridled efforts. Don’t get caught up in the swirl of the nitty gritty. Relax and enjoy daydreaming of glory a little longer.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Just when you thought things had quieted down, this is the time to make your mark on the world. Push a small effort into a grand scale, Guppie. Will you be able to adequately control your own press? There you are at every party, every A-list event and every hot-to-trot spot. You could actually run the risk of being horribly over exposed…uh, if you call that a risk.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Domestic affairs will have an air of mystery. But, this is not the time for any major changes in your routine or home design. It is a time to relax, recharge and attend to…ahem…intimate projects. Proud Rams not only enjoy the sexy intrigue around the house, they also enjoy putting a bit of their own mischief into play. Should we dust you for fingerprints?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Don’t be afraid to make demands of pals and partners. Queer Bulls have more than the usual amount of diplomacy. For those in the meet market, you not only manage to wend your way into selective circles, you also make your intentions known and accepted in no uncertain terms. You finally get what you wish. Oh, be careful of what you wish!

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins feel their oats and think nothing of jumping into any detailed job task head first. But, look before you leap. You may not only dive in at the shallow end, there is the risk of wasting and dissipating your energies. You risk losing momentum on projects that look simple, but require long-term application. Climb every mountain, but be sure to pack a big lunch.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs are poised for a lot of fun and “gaymes.” Opportunities abound to paint the town hot pink with your Pride parade. Inspiration strikes and you become the epicenter of excitement wherever you go. Remember, first impressions are memorable. (Perhaps, too memorable right now.) How much is too too much? Hey who really cares? : :
