If you believe that actions speak louder (and prouder) than words, imagine what happens when retrograde Mars opposes dizzy Neptune. Actions not only speak, they rant, rave and go off on wild tangents. They also set off minor nuclear chain reactions. Avoid after-shocks and fallout by keeping petty tantrums to yourself…for now.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) There may be some nasty contratemps with partners now. If you’re ready to scuttle the Love Boat, you find an impetus and any excuse. But, if there is still a bit of spark between the two of you, why not wait a short while before you try anything or anyone new. Guppies feel the need to meet and greet, but will do so with two left feet. Show ‘em how to dance later.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams may overdo it in the exercise department. Why not relax and be a bit lazy? You never know when your tail will get caught in the treadmill or an arm gets hooked in the weight rack. Exertion is not in the stars — and that goes for the job too. Don’t expend any extra energy wondering what you can do to get ahead at work. Ah, so what else is new?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) This time period provides perky queer Bulls with far too much of a good thing…or, so it will seem. Fun, creative endeavors and even a possible romance can shift into overdrive if you fail to pace and brace. However, with all this delusional energy abounding, you may fancy yourself to be quite the bon vivant in certain select circles. Or, is that among certain squares?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins are inspired to do a little sprucing up at home. But, take it one scrub at a time and don’t paint the house or tear down a wall now. Commotion around the house will conflict with career obligations and will not progress smoothly. Why not just invite a few compadres over for a nice evening? Keep the guest list small and very intimate.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs practically bellow their opinions. If you enjoy creating a ruckus that can run amok, the possibilities are endless. Your rants are broadcast internationally. Prepare for an incident; the mouthy anvil that you toss today can crush your toes (or worse) tomorrow. Sometimes it’s better to keep your petty demands chez nous. So, nuh?

LEO (07.24-08.23) Prepare to dive into a deep pool of pennies from heaven. But, it’s not for keeps, so keep prying hands off and expectations in check. Financial investment strategies should be shelved if possible. Anything you covet probably belongs to someone else and will cost far more than expected with less value in the long run. I know that proud Lions don’t like it that way.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Your unprincipled energy results in a lurid public display if you’re not careful. Queer Virgins should not rush into center stage at this time. Your cargo pants will drop and your underwear may be…ahem…drafty. No matter; as long as you stay behind the scenes, no one need see your shortcomings. Check for spinach in your teeth before you meet anyone new.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Intuition is not generally your strong suit, but so what? Just avoid acting on any vague mental rumblings if at all possible. In your attempt to dislodge hidden enemies, you may miscalculate and open up your Achilles heel to a swift kick. Ouch! Poor gay Libras should sit this battle out and console themselves with a pleasant, stress-reducing pastime. Oh, do tell!

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Don’t take on more tangos than you can easily fit on your dance card. Queer Scorps who take too much on socially will more than likely need extra time to recuperate. Friends may become especially needy now. You’ll do them a better service if you remain on the sidelines. Let them make their own mistakes while you provide the tea and sympathy.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Even politically astute gay Archers may inadvertently mouth off to the head honcho. Professional aspirations may be jolted and set off course, so play any corporate cards close to the vest and don’t take any extreme action if you can avoid it. Of course, there is something nice about sleeping late before you pick up your unemployment check.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps hanker for far horizons, but it is tight for a bit right now. Travel may become too difficult or too unwieldy or you may find that exotic locales are too much trouble to navigate. Also, avoid pushing the envelope on lawsuits or any legal issues. Your words run amok and can make mincemeat out of any carefully planned attack. Take a short recess.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians are too hot to handle and too darn heady to care. Your embers are poked into a raging fire that can soon burn out of control. Before you singe your best assets on a faulty match, take a good look at the object of your desire and measure their true worth. There is a good chance that you will spend on a dreamboat and be left with only a leaky dingy. Live and learn. : :
