Out in the Stars: Aug. 8-21

Mercury enters Virgo and opposes shocking Uranus. Prepare for all thoughts and opinions to propel us into unrestricted airspace. How far can you fly on a dream? Just be sure to pack a parachute (and a pillow) for that long trip back to earth.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Money issues bubble to the surface with some surprising results. Will you decide to make a big investment in some cockamamie scheme or will you plant your fortune in a safe, but low, reward enterprise? Proud Lions think that they have money to burn but could find ashes in their wallets when all the bills are due. Ask for advice…and then wait.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Avoid any major discussions with partners at this time. Queer Virgins are apt to say something shocking that could have longterm ramifications. However, if you are seeking a connection with a certain someone, this is the time to try a new bait line. Not only do you stir up the social soup, you appear to be very clever and cutting. I say “appear”…ahem.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Spill a personal secret or two among carefully chosen co-workers and see what happens. You might find that it could change your perspective on your job and clear up a cloud on your corporate ascent. Proud Libras strive for balance and harmony. Can this be achieved when you feel overly protective of certain ideas? Let it all hang out…but watch for drafts.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Friends hatch a scheme that will prove to be fun. Go with the flow and see how the group think can carry you to new places, new people and new things. Discover hidden talents and take a calculated risk with a certain project or person. Who knows what can happen? You might find that there is an artist inside of you waiting to come out. So, come out already!

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Get your mind focused on your professional goals . Not only will you be able to attain anything you can imagine, you can also solidify your base and become more confident in general. Gay Archers are ready to take charge and have great ideas with which to build an empire. Will you be a benevolent dictator when you reach the top or a petty corrupt official. Let’s guess.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps should consider traveling or planning a trip while the time is ripe. Not only are they full of ways and means about what to do and where to go, they also have a good idea of who should join them. Expect more than a few happy surprises along the way. Don’t sit at home and wait for the doorbell to ring. Get out there and ring a few bells yourself. Ringading.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) How sexy do you feel? It is all in your mind, Aqueerius! Of course, that is not a bad thing. Sometimes just thinking it is all that we need to muster up the courage to do it. So it will be for you. Find the time and the means to connect on a meaningful level with you-know-who. Generate some heat and see what is cooking. Do I smell someone burning?

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Relationships are in for a few surprises. How much independence do you need Guppie? There are issues that need to be addressed and, in talking about them, you create a new level of understanding. Think of ways to readjust things so that you can feel uncompromised and liberated and yet still connected and close. It is not impossible to a willing heart.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams hate intrigue and dishonesty. That is why all closets are opened and all lurid shenanigans are bared now. Good thing too! No sooner do you release your gremlins than you liberate yourself to a healthier outlook and a more productive attitude. What are you waiting for? Grab a granola bar and get back to work on life’s ever-speeding treadmill. Oh goody.

TAURUS (04.21-.5.21) Thinking creatively can take you far. But, it could take you too far and off course if you are unable to rein it in. Queer Bulls tempt fate, taking a small, insignificant item and blasting it into a wild, crazy out of control orbit. Friends are impressed and a little awed. Maybe life will become more interesting? It will certainly become more complicated.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Your home life is a source of activity and excitement. Pink Twins, with an eye to redecorating, renovating or even moving, will charge ahead with projects with some surprising results. Your secret to success is to not take on too much homework at once. Something is bound to go awry. Take things slowly and one at a time, or, better still, delegate.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Anything that you say — any stray comment — can be blown out of proportion. So, mind your Ps and Qs, pink Crab, and be sure that what mulls in your mind does not necessarily find its way to your lips. It will certainly be uncensored and broadcast globally. Of course, you may be interested in upending the landscape. If so, give it your best shot and then stand back.
