Out in the Stars: July 19 – August 1

Sun in Leo heats up our otherwise cool existence. Our lives become vibrant and colorful and we feel as if we could charm the world with one big toothy grin. Show us your pearly whites  and see how far the fluffy stuff carries you forward.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Gay Crabs discover gold among the dross. Even riskier investments pay off monetarily, so keep an eye on the bottom line and know when to buy and sell. After all is said and done, you may be content to rest on your laurels. Don’t. Use your good fortune to push one step further up the food chain. Dine on prime rather than chuck. Hmm, then again.

LEO (07.24-08.23) This time period marks a time of increased charisma where everyone seeks to orbit around your gravitational pull. While it will be tempting to lie back and watch the revolution, try not to get lazy. You make excellent first impressions and can easily set new projects into motion. Proud Lions pack more charm per square inch than usual. Hmm, how many inches is that really?

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Feeling confined and pent up? There is nothing to stop you from clearing out your cosmic debris right now. Queer Virgins should not hold back. Blow the door off your closet and clean it out. Fear of fall out? Check out this added bonus: Those who don’t have your best interests at heart are thwarted in their vile and dastardly plans. Aha!

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) This time period heralds in a sociable time of friends, festivities and frolic. Your presence is demanded at every top event and your fan base increases. So, why do you feel that you are working so hard? Well, proud Libras not only find themselves the leader of the Pride parade, they also become organizers, pepsters and even clean up crew. Popularity has its price, it seems.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Make your assorted marks in the corporate sphere now. Queer Scorps pack a political wallop and generate enough fabulous ideas to keep the attention focused solely on themselves around the office. Don’t be content to sing in the chorus. Outshine the competition by getting out front. Grab your pinstripped costume and put on a grand performance. Bravo!

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Gay Archers expand their world view. You can no longer be content to come and go with the usual boring routine. Suddenly, life holds more promise and excitement. Good. Expand your horizons any way you can — travel, study or even traipse through the internet. Grab a bit of the rainbow and seek your passion. Or, will it grab you? Only if you are lucky.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Prepare for a surge in your sexual allure. You won’t even have to try to upgrade your look. You can come as you are — and you will! Pink Caps draw more bees to their hive than ever before and create a swarm. Don’t dissipate the vibes by flirting with any old honey. Try instead to set your sights on one particularly attractive stinger and create a new buzz.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians have a tendency to overdo and can feel physically drained and spiritually dreary now. Although it can feel like a down energy cycle, turn your attention from selfish pursuits to selfless relationships. Go the extra mile and you will find that the benefits far outweigh the costs. At any rate, others will feel better and that is what really counts. Yeah, right.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Rewards come to those Guppies who have put in the greatest effort at work. You now gain greater insight into the easiest and most successful course of action in any detailed work assignment. While the temptation will be to take the easy path, any true application and effort will pay extra dividends. Cash them through the summer when you can debrief on the beach.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) This time period unleashes your chains and frees you up to have tons of fun, fun, fun. Be all you can be musically, artistically, dramatically and just plain party-wise-ically. Gay Rams go to great lengths to demonstrate their creativity. Can you smell the romance in the air? Oh, wait a minute — it’s just something that has been left on the stove for too long.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) A home is more than just four walls. Queer Bulls need to feel mentally charged in order to make their personal living space feel like their own spiritual refuge. Thankfully you find ways to fulfill this purpose and bring the forces together to create a homey harmony. Share this joy with close friends. Why not invite a few close buddies over for a chat and chew?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Take a strong position and state your case. Your speech has verve and panache. Not only do you pack a diplomatic punch, you also easily grasp pithy ideas and high concepts. So, don’t wait for the translation. Read between the lines and speak your mind. An impassioned cry from the vast void can be heard if a pink Twin tweets it, or so a little bird told me. : :
