Out in the Stars: May 2-15

Venus and Mars rub-a-dub and set off some flirty sparks now. All is delightfully giddy until they square retrograde Pluto. Is it a trip to the moon on gossamer wings or just one of those crazy things? Hedge your bets, just in case.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Global travel plans take on a fuzzy, mystical vagueness. Despite the fog, it feels right. You connect on deeper levels with people and discover things that bring you to new levels of compassion and understanding. That is until you need to make fast and concrete decisions. Keep your head in the clouds if you like, but keep those hooves planted firmly in reality.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Will you risk alienating lovers by hanging around too much with friends? There will be times right now when there is extra stress placed on certain sexual encounters. Hot pink Twins are very sociable and enjoy socializing with an extra dose of flirt. You may want to wine and dine closer to home now unless you eventually want to whine and dine alone.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Relationships that may be teetering on the abyss could change course one way or the other. Try not to burn the minute oil at work while partners imagine all sorts of goings-on. Gay Crabs still on the prowl may wind up with an unpleasant twist to a tryst. Blame it on weak excess, if you must. Pack extra money for a late night taxi home, if you-know-who lets you in!

LEO (07.24-08.23) Proud Lions may now be put to the test. Which of the competing interests will win out — a vacation of fun and frolic or the drudgery of the job? Increasingly blurry lines between commitments may cause extra stress and exhaustion. My advice is to make your priorities and stick to them. And the priority should be whatever eventually makes you happy, fulfilled and flush.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) As much as you would prefer to always say the right thing at the right time, you may find that your best moves take on a perverse life of their own. Speak or act rashly and pay the price, queer Virgin. Refrain from your more adventuresome, party animal instincts. Instead of being the wild jungle cat, you’ll wind up as dinner. Hey, it could be worse.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) You can either take the advice of well-meaning, but domineering family members or you can stubbornly plow ahead and waste valuable resources on an escapade that, at any other time, would hardly be worth the time, energy, money and effort. As you search for connection, don’t allow yourself to be put on display and held up for auction. Any bids? Lousy economy.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Proud Scorps can be led astray at work by those who do not have their best interests at heart. Avoid falling for any machiavellian whisper in your ear which can get your whole thought process red hot and bothered. The cannons roar! The thunder claps! And, you race off to your own personal Waterloo. So, remember — if you don’t take the bait, you won’t get caught in the net.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If you think that you squander your resources on wasteful personal interest tangents, think again. Fun and games wind up costing much more than expected, gay Archer. This is especially true when it comes to gambling, where the greater the risk, the greater the loss. Don’t be afraid to enjoy yourself, but do it cheaply. Even better, get someone else to pay for your jolly times.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) New projects start off with a bang. How well can you manage the tidal wave? Pink Caps may be unable to stop the ever increasing flow of people, places and things demanding their attention. Too much can become much too much. Don’t worry. Somehow you will find a helping hand from close friends and family. Of course, not without their stern lecture.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) What foul creature emerges from your closet when you open the door? Wrestle ’em to the ground Aqueerius and reprioritize your value system. The cosmos suggests, no demands, that you pursue charitable endeavors. Karma is as karma does, the spirits say. It may seem impossible to make your mark, but make it you will. Make it in indelible ink and not in chalk, kiddo.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) You think you are the leader of the Pride parade, but you may not have the funds and the power to pull it off. Guppies can become consumed with their own exaggerated sense of self-worth, especially when they hobnob in new social circles. “Is it hot in here or is it me?” you think to yourself. Fact is, it’s not you this time. It’s the thermostat. Start sweating when the bill arrives.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) You are the toast of the town as things get underway. And, yet, you think that you need to change to become more “acceptable” in others’ eyes. This miscalculation may cause unintended upheaval in your career. Why do you feel that it’s so important to restrict yourself in order to be accepted by certain other folks? I say, let others adjust to you, proud Ram. ’Nuff said!
