The planets get into mischief this December as Venus retrogrades and rubs the Sun, Mercury and Pluto. Ho ho ho. Prepare for love run amok, lumps in your stocking and a smoking yule.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Do you have a pithy opinion to share? Hold off for a few weeks, proud Scorp. You never know how your words will be received and the impact it will have on unintended recipients. Plan your strategies instead and see how you can quietly implement your personal goals unobtrusively, craftily and ultimately successfully. Vie for the element of surprise rather than front page news.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) As carefully as you may plan your finances, December could bring a change in circumstance where you invest with your heart, rather than your head. Quick and easy money is not what it appears to be, gay Archer. So, tuck it into your current nest egg and sit on it for a while. Celebrate the holiday frugally. Sip the champagne, but don’t bathe in it.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) How many parties can you attend this December? Try for as many as possible to meet, greet and sweep folks off their feet. Pink Caps are primed to advance their agendas, set long postponed projects into motion and reap the rewards of all their hard work. Emotions can also run high. Will you lose your heart under the mistletoe? You can only hope.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) A secret admirer could become obsessed with you this December. So, be on your toes, Aqueerius, and don’t give your heart to just anyone. And, yet, the excitement and mystery of an infatuation could make this holiday one to remember. You can also become more involved in charitable efforts. You know it is better to give than to receive. At least, that is what they say.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Plan a few festive get-togethers this December and join some new clubs or groups. See how you can expand your social circle into a globe. Guppies will meet many new and interesting folks who can be important and helpful to you through the next year. So, take the lead, get more involved and showcase your immense talents. Deck the halls.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Your career takes off this December. And, this is something that you have been working on for while. Can you control the direction or your ascent? It will be hard to control the fates, as what you and the powers-that-be do will be unpredictable based on emotional reactions. But, that is part of the fun and excitement. Keep telling yourself that, proud Ram.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) You need to get out of your usual routine this December, queer Bull. And, what better way than to pack up your stuff and travel? If you have the time and the money, a last-minute trip could be beneficial and with unexpected rewards. If you need to stay close to the home fires, heat up and expand your horizons through study, exotic food, film or folks. Get hot.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Love is complicated and especially so this December. Maybe it’s because you treat your amours like a smorgasbord and have piled too much on your current plate. You are a charmer and attract many admirers. It is not too late to change or temper your diet, pink Twin. Keep your sweet tooth and nibble appropriately. Just don’t serve Christmas fruitcake.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Relationships can heat up and melt the snow this December. So, nurture and treasure your partner and find creative ways to celebrate the season together. Gay Crabs who are currently seeking a special someone will have their choice of possibilities. But, you have to get out and look. Don’t sit by the fireplace and wait for Santa to stuff one in your stocking.

LEO (07.24-08.23) There will be a temptation to put all your energies into your job this December, working hard and long into the night. But, don’t! Try to find the balance between the demands of the job and the joys of celebration. Take time out for a festive office party or, even better, an out-of-office party. All work and no play makes proud Lions frazzled felines.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgos are the toasts of the town and the party-meisters of the moment this December. Savor every event and brand it with your own personal charm. Eat, drink and be very merry. Too, too soon you will have to refocus your attentions on the bottom line and find ways to fund your assorted fun times. In the meantime, find a well-endowed benefactor to cushion you.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Gather family members around the hearth, proud Libra. Find ways to reach out to even distant relatives to join in. There may be some out-of-control emotional encounters, but that just adds to the memories as the year progresses. But, avoid any home improvements at this time. You think you like the walls red and green, but just wait until the spring when the light changes. : :
