When is too much, too too much? Possibly when dreamy Venus squares energetic Mars. Minor tremors become earthquakes, quiet interludes become basheroos and carefully concealed secrets go viral. So, prepare to be jousted, rousted and thrown for a cosmic loop. Enjoy the ride.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Diplomacy may escape you as you may say the exact wrong thing at the wrong time. This can be very uncomfortable for you, but you can still do it in a charming manner. Proud Libras are best advised to keep their more revolutionary thoughts to themselves for the time being and tone their “must say” messages for a general audience. When in doubt, just smile.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) This may seem like an opportune time to hit it big or lose it big in the financial arena. You are tempted to go for the big buckaroos without doing the necessary fact checking. Pyramid schemes seem like sure things. Yeah, right. It will be the truly wise, proud Scorp who realizes that all that glitters is not gold. In fact, it may not even be metal. Bite it to be sure.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Stand back and give the wild one some space when gay Archers let loose. This exuberant out-of-control energy encourages you to boss the course in social situations. If folks don’t do things your way, tough! You are as subtle as a jack hammer and about as pleasant. Be careful of dominating others, unless, of course others prefer it that way.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Everything you have tried to hide in the past is exposed. As things begin to float to the surface, pink Caps are encouraged and ready to tell it like it is. It feels quite cathartic to dump your cosmic garbage on the highway, but be careful of throwing out too much. There is sure to be something (or someone) worth keeping, if you take time to separate the real trash from all the posturing.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Compadres demand more of your attention and personal resources. Give till it hurts Aqueerius — a favor to a friend in need will not be forgotten. Of course, there may be some friends who become bottomless pits of need and greed. In that case, draw the line and cut the ties of dependency quickly. They may even thank you, er, one day.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Just when you thought your career was cruising on course, a strong gust of wind blows your roadmap out the window. And, yet, surprises are good for the soul and lead you to new, different opportunities. Dust yourself off and try try again. Once you get your juices going, you catapult to new heights. Don’t bump your head on the glass ceiling, Guppie.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) A simple excursion may evolve into an out-of-control adventure. Proud Rams often brace for excitement. Oh, be careful of what you wish right now! Plan all grand voyages carefully, sailor. The seas could suddenly become turgid and overturn your craft. Let’s hope there will be some helpful seamen to give you a hand and pull you up.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Queer Bulls are ready to take the sexual plunge, but may jump in over their heads now. You are in love with love and give your heart to all comers. Try to be discerning and move in new social circles for your hunt. It would be a shame to ruin a perfectly good friendship by taking it on the wrong course. Love is in the air, but it sort of smells like broccoli.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Relationship issues are blown out of proportion now. There are many more demands on your time. Pink Twins may institute a zero tolerance policy and demand change, but hold off. Try instead to exert some patience with partners and would-be partners. It would be a shame to spend the upcoming party season sipping champagne with your cat. Hmmm, or is it?

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs find themselves buried under a load of paperwork on the job. And, no matter how fast you work, you will find it difficult to keep up with the increasing demands of the marketplace. Before you give up and let things fall through the cracks, learn to prioritize, strategize and delegate. Escaping the humdrum is futile anyway right now.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Partyhound, proud Lions think that they can go the distance, but now you must put that thought to the acid test. It’s possible that in the spirit of the moment, you will imbibe that one drink too many and spend the next day hunkering down and avoiding loud noises. Instead of feeling your age the day after, I suggest that you behave your age the night before. Good luck.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) This time period highlights family affairs. Queer Virgos are hankering to blow things out of proportion. Dramatics aside, there is nothing to be gained by pushing the familial hot button now. Instead of storming the scene, take a breath and draw your line in the sand a couple of months from now. In the meantime, think only happy thoughts, and avoid sourpusses. : :
