Let’s go merrily into May as a parade of planets bump, jostle and set their energies off into the stratosphere. Mars opposes Neptune. The Sun conjuncts Jupiter. Mars trines Pluto. Venus retrogrades and trines retrograde Saturn. Whew! There is a lot of energy seeking an outlet. What path will you choose?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Friends encourage you to spend time with them. But, they can lead you on wasteful tangents and squander your resources and energies. Oh, lucky you! You have been very diligent and serious as of late. It is time that you let loose and give life a spin around the park. Don’t sit in your cave tending your personal fire. Venture out and see who is cooking what next door.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) If you find yourself daydreaming at work this May, chalk it up to too much going on at home and give your brain room to roam. Pink Twins have the urge to purge, paint and push some furniture around. See how inspired your home environment can become with a few creative touches. When all else fails to impress, enlist some savvy pals to help you decorate.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) You are bursting with a loud opinion followed by a caustic commentary. And, what good timing, gay Crab! Now your words can be used like weapons to cut to the chase and get things moving in the correct direction. For the greatest impact, be sure that you have carefully crafted your treatise and know what you want to say before you say it. Then say it.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Money and its impact on your life will be a consistent theme for the next few weeks. Are you preparing for your comfortable future? Proud Lions who have done their fiscal homework can now feel the benefits while those who need more time to work on their foundation will get the right building materials. It’s only a matter of discipline. Bondage is optional.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) May is a time of romance, connection and possible commitment, but only if you really want it. Queer Virgins currently ensconced in a relationship need to focus on balance — your vs. their needs. If you are searching for your dreamboat, it may be time to pull up anchor and set sail for different waters. You never know where you will wash ashore. Ahoy, sailor!

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) There is so much going on in the background that it may spill out into the foreground. Gay Libras are not only more cognizant of scuttlebutt and gossip, they are also part of the behind-the-scenes action. While you are unearthing secrets, clean out your own cache and rid yourself of excess psychological spam. Those who live in glass houses must dress in the basement.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) You are poised to become a social force and need to rally the troops. How creative can you get? Let’s just see. Romance, art, drama and passion are all possible playmates. Proud Scorpios can enlist a group of like-minded compadres and mix it all up to a frothy lather. Just don’t slip and fall on the messy aftermath. Or, maybe that is part of the dramatic plan?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) This is not the time to suffer from low ambition and dreams of retirement, gay Archer. Get your head and heart focused on your career. May delivers a plethora of professional projects to your office door. Projects mean money and who knows what the next few months will bring? You need to rake it in while there is something valuable to rake in.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps can plan some wonderful escapes this May and expand their horizons. Book yourself a vacation or try your hand at something new and exotic closer to home. The most important thing is to open yourself up to new stimuli and experiences that can possibly change or modify your long held and set opinions. Will it be evolution or revolution?

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Romance and its glorious possibilities move to the frontburner for you this May. Even aloof Aqueerians can’t help but feel loosie, goosie and a bit smoochie. Don’t get hung up in appearances. Let yourself go and take a chance on a certain alluring someone. Of course, love may cost more than you think. Champagne baths don’t flow from the spouts, you know.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Concentrate on improving current relationships — for both business and pleasure. And, find some new important folks to meet and greet. Guppies find that connections and good communication help them overcome any obstacle. You make a fabulous first impression. Don’t let all that personal magnetism dissipate. By June you will want to relax and recharge. Zap!

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Much of May could be spent trying to catch up on the nitty-gritty leftovers of the day. While this seems like a waste of time, you will soon notice that hum- drum tasks actually enable you to space out and free think to expand your creative vision. Inspiration strikes in unusual and welcome ways. Sometimes we attain Nirvana while scrubbing the tub, proud Ram. : :
