Mercury and Venus conjunct in Scorpio and oppose retro Jupiter. Little, passing thoughts can lead to passionate, over the top actions in rapid time. N’er a slip betwixt the mind and the lip. Just don’t trip on your tongue, honey. Oops!

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) If money is tight and the job feels like a never-ending mind game, blame forces beyond your control for the worker discontent. Gay Libras feel the urge to rebel and toss off the chains of their economic oppressors. I’m all for a good fight, but wait before you react…and overreact. You soon see the beauty of a little green in your lavender and will no longer be blue.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Proud Scorps become an uncontrollable tour de force, like a tornado or an earthquake. Channel your dreams, desires and even your frustrations into beneficial action like lifting weights or running a marathon. Too much undirected energy can wreak havoc with your landscape and cause you to scuttle otherwise well established plans. Channel or change channels.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Your imagination runs amok and your intuition can be way off base. Gay Archers can be all mouth and no thought. If you cannot concentrate on just being the former, zip the lip and reflect dispassionately without reacting, especially around family. Happily, this means that you can spend some quality time alone. No one will call. Believe me.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) A friend in need becomes excessively cloying. Pink Caps are apt to come off a little flinty when compadres come knocking. Avoid the temptation to wag a finger at their fecklessness. Opinionated commentary backfires, but compassion rules. Simply keep an open mind and a closed wallet when the sob stories begin. Pretend to be moved. Carry an onion in case.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians question their direction in life. How much is the all corporate strain and pain worth? How much do you have to compromise for professional success? These questions can be posed, but not adequately answered now. Stay on track and keep an eye on that open corner office before cashing in your chips and leaving the table.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Guppies are liable to blurt out all the wrong things to folks they do not know well. So, what else is new? First impressions certainly have lasting impact now, so be very cognizant of how you come off. If you trip on your big lip, follow this simple sequence — smile, apologize, leave. Otherwise, hang around folks who know you very, very well, warts, farts and all.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Gay Rams may crunch a few toes in their dance of love. Life is a ball, but will the fates turn your golden carriage into an overripe pumpkin? Before you find yourself without a royal consort, stop, look, listen, but don’t react to idle trashy gossip. You could find your face on page one, but just wave, smile and strut your stuff. The show must go on and so will you.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Maybe it’s the little things that you do that drive partners so darn crazy now. Queer Bulls may simply choose to spend a few days on their own to avoid any possible flare-ups. You are tempted to implement changes without consulting the “changee.” Why bother doing anything dramatic right now? If you are going to push and pull, let it be mutual.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) If long- and short-term employment prospects are found wanting now, blame the economic downturn on bad timing. Pink Twins burn the midnight oil and no one seems to notice. You propose great ideas only to have them co-opted and bastardized. Don’t despair. Just thank goodness you still have many wealthy pals who are willing to support you…err…emotionally.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs find over the top and uncontrollable sun, fun and frolic. Your best party plans are upended and tossed into the Cuisinart of chance. This has its advantages if you are willing to be carried along with the tide. If not, bury yourself in work. It may be lonely at the top, but, at least, you’ll have a personal assistant to…ahem…take dictation.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Sexual miscommunication pales next to the havoc that is created between various family members or in your home life. Proud Lions have full personal plates and are advised to keep their jolly sense of humor as the fates scramble their assorted eggs. Why not take that long awaited vacation? By the time you return, the dust will settle and be pushed back under the rug.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) They say that actions speak louder and prouder than words, but now your words and actions carry a pretty powerful and international punch. Queer Virgins should choose their moves carefully before they chew the scenery and step on others’ lines. All will go well if you can probe the hot issues a little more deeply and meaningfully with a small group of athletic-looking supporters.
