Sun enters intense Scorpio and makes a sterling aspect to Saturn. Not only can we charm shining stars from the skies but we can also store them up for a dark day.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Proud Libras can become more acquisitive than usual. Embrace your inner consumer and see what delightful objects catch your eye. However, buying binges need to be controlled so they do not become debt potholes…or worse. Is it the object or the idea of the object that gets your blood pumping? Happiness can be found internally as much as externally, they say.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Queer Scorps are in their element when the Sun enters their own sign. Set the trends, move in new circles, invent new things and embrace a range of new stimuli. You call the shots and are the one in the “know.” This is no time to fade into the wallpaper. This energy doesn’t come around often. Hurry, hurry, hurry. In the near future, no one will care what you think, as usual.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If you have a few intuitive thoughts, collect and bottle them before time runs out now. Gay Archers can reach a state of sublime karma that they can apply to charitable efforts or even in their career. Your efforts do not go unrecognized. Blast your good works into the public eye and those in power sit up and take notice. Cage a lunch and capture their imaginations.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps are more sociable than usual now and manage to gather the troops for a grand excursion or event. Orbit in different social circles and see who grabs your attention. Not only will you fill up your social calendar through the holidays, you can also expand your vision and embark on new and ultimately successful paths. The hint is to listen rather than speak.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) You’re not usually known as the most politically astute corporate player, but now you can squeeze a few points from the big kahunas and advance in the corporation. Aqueerians can now play the professional game with the best of them but can also get waylaid by a sexy intruder on their bliss. Will you give up a leg up for a leg over? Ha! In a nanosecond!

PISCES (02.20-03.20) This is the time to attain the right balance between your personal need for freedom and the daily grind (and responsibility) of certain relationships. Guppies have all the answers as usual and now have ample opportunity to expand their influence. Go global by taking a great idea on to the internet. Okay, visit a gay social networking site instead.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) It’s time for gay Rams to concentrate on the more intense aspects of relationships. Sun in Scorpio signals a new level of intimacy and intensity. If you are on the hoof, you discover new pastures to plow. And yet, with all this activity, you won’t be able to get away from the ongoing grind of the job, as much as you try. Maybe combine both activities? Ahem.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) There will be times when you can just kick back and have fun. And, if your antics result in a new crazy romance, all the better. Seek connection any way you can queer Bull. Not only will you be particularly diplomatic, you can also find innovative ways to get exactly what you want when you want it. Just be sure that you know exactly what you really want.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Sweating on the assembly line has never been so “character building” Hard work pays off in big dividends and helps you create a fiscal cushion if you can save the pennies. Pink Twins will cleverly find ways of streamlining tasks so they can spend more time relaxing and recharging at home. You’re the master of your fate now. Take the wheel and drive.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Strive for giddy romance, fun, creativity and artistic expression. There is nothing you can’t achieve if you put your mind to it. Pour on the charm among new and interesting circles. Before you realize it, you can be swept off your claws and land in a steaming stewpot. Stir briskly and spice to taste. This meal can last a lifetime if you are both lucky.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Proud Lions are not necessarily known as “nesters,” but this time period gives you a certain nesting quality. You value your homelife and you enjoy surrounding yourself with beautiful objects and lovely things. So, what’s wrong with that? And while you are feathering you nest, you can also build up your nest egg thanks to Saturn. Eat a fluffy omelette in your old age.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23)
Queer Virgins have a few pithy ideas to share with the world and are given unique opportunities to make their proud opinions known. Not only do people gravitate to you, they are ready to listen and respond. But don’t be shy or hesitate too long. This opportunity comes fast and is fleeting and so are you. In the weeks ahead you’ll be just another putz with a gripe.
