Now, if you could also keep all the honey.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) There is something happening behind the scenes that will prove to be fun and enlightening, if you give it a chance. Open yourself up to possibilities.

Proud Libras might also have a secret admirer who, after a few false starts, finally reveals themselves to you. Uh, ho.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Queer Scorps are awash with pals. So many in fact that you may secretly ache for some quiet time. But, don’t retreat yet.

In fact, you should expand your outreach to friends of friends because there is someone out there who can make certain things happen for you. Keep pressing the flesh until it manifests.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If you think that your career plans have stalled, think again. This is the time to rev them up and take them for a spin.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) You know what is right, so do the right thing. Handle all legal matters with a dispassionate eye and they will go the way you want them to go. Expand your horizon by thinking of new approaches to old intractable problems and maybe even contemplate a change of scenery. I bet you will think of a lot a great solutions lounging on a chaise on some lovely beach.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians are sexy beasts and know what they need to do to grab all the adoring attention for themselves. Find ways to get yourself in the right crowd. Press and impress. But, as you ooze passion, don’t slip on your own oil by becoming a spoiled diva. Remember what happens at the stroke of midnight to your carriage and costume. Back to used cars and cut-offs?

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Relationships hit a high point. Maybe that is because you realize how important it is to really connect with another person. Make every connection more meaningful and stronger.
