Are you talking to yourself? Consider doing so while Mercury retrogrades and screws up communications for the next few weeks or so. Havoc reigns from missed calls to errant tweets. Every musing can become bruising if we don’t think carefully before we speak. We can all do that…can’t we? Oops!

CANCER (06.22-07.23) If you think that your finances are out of control, you are right. The time period brings confusion and miscommunication where money is concerned. This means that you might waste a few bucks on a scheme that you think is fail safe, but is really failure prone. Nothing is guaranteed, so hold on to your hard-earned dough gay Crab. There is plenty of time to waste it later.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Every faint impression becomes an indelible mark. Every proud Lion thinks they are quite the charmer, but what you say may not be what you really mean. Chances are that you will rub certain folks the wrong way. Rather than rubadub elbows why not take a rest from socializing and find comfort and solace in quiet personal growth. Err, how personal?

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) While you are convinced that spirit guides have your best interests at heart, they could, in fact, lead you astray. That is because there is static on the psychic line and what you hear is not what they are transmitting. Avoid getting caught up in mystery and intrigue, queer Virgin. Keep things crystal clear and save the fog machine for the next party.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Plans gone awry? Chalk it up to an innocent miscommunication and give friends a little extra latitude. Proud Libras find themselves in one place and their posse in another. It seems that even best laid plans become whipped and scrambled. Why go crazy? Enjoy the unexpected serendipities that come with chance and just make an omelette.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) This is not be the best time to push for that promotion or pivotal interview. Things right now make almost every professional attempt a political gaffe. It is not worth the risk to try now. Retreat to your cubicle and rearrange your paperwork while you bide your time. Queer Scorps will have their chance at success soon enough. Meantime, is that spinach in your teeth?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If you think that travel nowadays is annoying, try not to travel now. Reservations get lost along with your luggage. Gay Archers may prefer to roam the house rather than the world, but if you cannot contain yourself, be sure to check and recheck all details of the trip. It would be a shame to have your suitcase relaxing in Rome while you cool your tootsies in Podunk.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) There is now another way to leave your lover — with lots of miscommunication. No matter how much you would like to wax poetic and declare your love, it is best to let your actions speak louder and prouder than your words. Pink Caps are apt to inadvertently say just the thing to scuttle their love boat. Better keep all hands on deck…among other places.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Ever politic Aqueerians can come down with a case of foot-in-mouth. This will be especially true in any one-on-one conversation that is intended to help solidify and strengthen relationships. You are just not getting your point across. Nor are you listening. Perhaps this is a good time to let things simmer quietly. Let it become a potboiler next month.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) What a great time to catch up on backlogged projects! Guppies are infused with energy and determination. However, as you tackle everything with verve, you stray from your initial intent and wind up with results far different from what you need or expect. Read all instructions, carefully listen to advice and take copious notes now. Or, just relax and let things pile up.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) One could say that you can never have too much fun. Usually, that is true, but too much fun can indeed be too too much. Gay Rams pile so much on their plates that things begin to spill. Be discerning and enjoy in moderation, as difficult as that may be. Gluttony is often your fall back position, but now you should savor one thing at a time. And, no names please!

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Leave yourself plenty of “to do” reminders on sticky notes around the house. You may forget to do things. Queer Bulls find that their domestic agenda does not make sense (Sound familiar?). Confusion reigns and details get lost in the general melee. The next couple of weeks will teach you to handle and harness an array of loose ends. Loosey gets goosey, so don’t get cooked.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) You talking to me, pink Twins? Your more outrageous opinions are blasted across the cyberspace. This may not be a bad thing. It can bring change and attention. But, will it have lasting power? You can’t move a big boat on a gust of hot wind alone. Turn up the motor mouth and be sure that your propeller doesn’t get caught in a buoy…unless that is your thing. : :
