A parade of planets traipse through Capricorn this January giving the chilly air a definitive purpose and profitable goal. Let’s go for the gusto and see how success can change us…or give us extra change.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Money is highlighted this January and why not? You have been fairly careful this past winter with your dough and have managed to turn a small nest egg into a large rising pile. What will you do with all your largess? Some gay Archers will spend like crazy. But, others will take a long practical look ahead. Find time for both frivolity and frugality…or is it cheap thrills?

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) All eyes are upon you and it will soon be time to make your grand entrance. Plan your best moves and prepare your best ideas. Pink Caps can set their personal course for the next year as they hob nob with the high and mighty. But, remember to spend some time with those at the other end of the spectrum, too. See life from all angles and shapes. Don’t be obtuse.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Stray, intuitive thoughts may seem like a distraction, but they provide the seeds of creativity. So, allow yourself a time for contemplative meditation and see if you discover clues that solve some of your long-term intractable problems. At the very least, you can have a relaxing respite that clears your mind and readies it for the next big push. How much can you push, Aqueerius?

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Pals figure prominently in your life this January. Find ways to get folks together and even expand your tight circle with a few new fresh faces. Life has been too sedate and boring. The new year guarantees more excitement, Guppie. Stir things up with a potent cocktail of the four “F”s = friends, food, festivities and frolic. Or, is it foolishness? I forget.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Your career takes precedence over everything else this January. Professional decisions and actions impact your progress through the entire year. So, resolve not to take crazy risks or make too many petty outrageous demands while you have the ear of the power brokers. Sugarcoat your requests. Have a gripe? Simmer, stew and plot to serve later.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Travel has its surprises this January. On the one hand, it can be a wild and grand adventure. On the other hand, it may be too frenetic and crazy to really relax and enjoy. Plan as much of it as you can, but be prepared for an occasional detour. Who knows? Expect the unexpected and drop a few breadcrumbs to find your way home. Uh, is that a flock of birds ahead?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Love and sex can not only get more complicated, they create ruckus in unexpected situations. Be sure to keep your sex life safely within the parameters of current relationships and don’t order out. Pink Twins can have a wandering eye. Make a New Year’s resolution to keep your eyes affixed on the ultimate prize. Let me know when you figure out what that is.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Partnerships can evolve and change, not only in January, but also throughout the new year. This is great if you have been feeling stalled and static, but you can become a little uneasy if you want things to remain just as they are. Embrace the adventure and excitement. A new broom sweeps clean, gay Crab. Don’t push all that dust under the rug.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Whatever job you have this year, expect it to be filled with surprises. Even small efforts you put into doing a task well could have a monumental payoff. Little, crafted actions can feed the corporate machinery and catapult you into a new situation. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunity, proud Lion. What looks like a dead end actually has a secret tunnel.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Follow your artistic muse this January and see where all the fun leads you. The possibilities are endless and the opportunities are enormous. Will you party hearty and wind up with a hangover and a list of New Year’s resolutions? Or, will you corral your best ideas into a new marketing push and wow the masses and your bottom line? How energetic do you feel, queer Virgo?

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) What will feed your inner soul this January? Some say smores roasting in a fireplace, but I think anything that gets you closer to your roots, home and hearth helps. Even if family is far away or estranged, try to reach out to relatives and build bridges. The connection you make today proves to be beneficial later this year. Did I say beneficial? I meant ka-chingie profitable.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) As strategic as you think you are, you are even more so in January. Everything you say has impact, foresight and profundity. Memorize your lines, work the room and impress them with your intelligence, proud Scorpio. Focus your attention on a long-term goal and resolve to get at least one step closer to it now. Simon says forget baby steps. Go for at least umbrella steps.
