Out in the Stars: Aug. 6-19

Rowdy Mars opposes retrograde Pluto. Well placed actions can create unparalleled, earth-changing results and we can deliver the goods in no uncertain terms. Handle all packages with care and don’t bend or fold unless requested.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Your imagination revs into overtime. Proud Lions delve deep into their psyche and come up with some fairly outrageous scenarios. Clear your mind and see what and who wafts in. Plan a seance, create a myth and become a muse. At the very least, just be amusing. Uh, maybe its time to hang up your turban and take a long-awaited and well-deserved vacation.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Watch what you say and do in any social situation now. You think you are being funny. But, some of your stray comments can upend the dynamics among a particular circle of your friends. Queer Virgins prefer to remain on the fringes of the group where they can observe and assess. Now, all eyes are upon you. Do you have a milk moustache?

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) This can be a very profitable time for you if you have been diligent in your professional pursuits. It is time to get a reward for your hard work. Cash in on your efforts and don’t be shy. You possess more power than you realize and are ready, willing and able to fry some corporate sharks and serve them for lunch. Pack the pepto just in case, gay Libra!

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Travel is broadening or so they say. What is quite obvious is that travel is exciting, unruly, out of control and gloriously delicious. So, what are you waiting for, proud Scorpio? It is time for you to get going and seek new exotic stimuli to get those creative juices flowing once again. Replenish and rejuvenate in any way possible. Paris anyone?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Gay Archers flip head over heels for just another pretty face. Your heart is on fire and your animal magnetism is strong. Make good use of time, lover, before you lose your steam. But, note: Your pursuit of happiness may cost more than you think. Watch your spending and save something for the cold winter months — unless you can now snag a well endowed benefactor.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) It doesn’t matter if you are in a partnership now or not. Relationships in general — the mere concept of them — get under your skin and get you thinking. Chalk it up to a philosophical conundrum — the need for balance and compromise. What are you looking for in another person? Sometimes it is not always about you. Rarely though.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Careful planning and gut intuition pay off. Apply a little elbow grease on the job and see how profitable it can be. Aqueerians are often apt to let day-to-day assignments fall fallow while they feast at the political banquet table. Now, you can charge your engines for all sorts of detailed work that can demonstrate your considerable work skills beyond apple polishing.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Once you were bursting with fresh new ideas, but, lately, it has been a bit of a dry spell. Worry no longer. Now your creative ideas and artistic expressions burn brilliantly. The secret to your success is to rely on friends to help you turn an idea into a reality. There may be some starts and stops along that path, but perseverance will win out. Find someone who can do that.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) There is no such thing as boredom. In fact there could be too much to do from home to work. But, concentrate on the many fascinating domestic activities that pique your interest. And, don’t pique alone. Plan a few fun get togethers where you can show off your culinary talents. When that fails, show off your other admirable talents. Can we think of any?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Expect to have a range of fiery philosophical and political conversations with anyone and everyone. Queer Bulls are usually fairly measured, but now you feel compelled to call it as you see it. This is a powerful new stance for you where you can gain followers and fans. But, it can also create clashes with those who are not as insightful as you. Pick your fights.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins feel emboldened and may want to take a calculated corporate risk. Rather than spend your life pushing a pencil in some drab cubicle, the planets now formulate a professional coup d’etat with you as the heir apparent. Storm the barricades comrade and upset the natural order of things. Then you can push a pencil in the corner office.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs are advised to be grandiose, unapologetic self-promoters. There is no time like the present to meet, greet and pour on the charm with anyone with a gram of importance and influence. Keep talking. Your best suggestions find their way into cyberspace where they can take root and become more than just another piece of spam. Well, perhaps. : :
