The summer party is winding down, but there is still the clean-up. Thankfully, the Sun enters practical Virgo just in time to help out. Focus on areas of your life where you can make a difference, even it if it just entails light dusting.

LEO (07.24-08.23) If you have been a careful and thrifty proud Lion, this time period will bring you a financial reward. If you have been a careless spendthrift who has squandered your wad on wasteful pastimes and undeserving party hounds, then you’ll learn a stern fiscal lesson. But, maybe that lesson is to live for today and let tomorrow take care of itself? Keep dreaming!

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) You are thrust into the center of any major social activity. Are you ready for your close-up? Queer Virgins are poised to make some important new contacts. First impressions are lasting impressions now. That means you should spruce up your appearance and dust off your wardrobe so you can impress. When in doubt, avoid wearing cellophane suits.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Expect to have a mellow yellow type of moment. Seek enlightenment, seek spirituality and seek ways to unburden yourself of secrets and other psychological baggage that is holding you back. Proud Libras find opportunities to lie back and contemplate their navels. Even better, try to find opportunities to lie back and contemplate someone else’s navel.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Friends will play an important role in your day-to-day activities. Proud Scorps find themselves involved in new social groups, grand movements or large influential organizations. Capture the group dynamic and make it work for you. Try to grab the reins of power and ride to the top of the heap. The real question will be, what type of heap?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Whether you are fully employed or not, this interval will open up some amazing (and possibly very lucrative) employment opportunities for you. Gay Archers have been known to lie back and laze away the final days of the summer, but don’t fall into that trap. Putting in a little effort now will have great pay off later in the year. “How little is little?” you say?

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps are in the mood for one last summer jaunt. Get out of town! Not only will travel refresh you, you will also learn a few new tricks that you put to good use throughout the fall. For those who just can’t escape, try to explore new parts of town or some product, food or company that will give you an exotic oomph. How exotic is up to you.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) There is something in the air that makes all Aqueerians especially alluring and sensual. You attract anyone you set your sights to attract. Why ask why? Whatever it is, maximize your sexual spark to the hilt. Make yourself available and see how much love you can create. Too, too soon this planetary power passes and you will be back to phoning it in and dreaming about it.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) This is the time to review what you are seeking in a longterm relationship. Guppies who are currently involved may need to ask themselves if their needs are being met and if they are energized and complete. If so, find ways to make the bond stronger. If not, speak up! For those who are angling for a catch, try swimming in fresh watering holes and be open to new bait.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams are ready to roll up their sleeves and focus on their job. And, not a moment too soon! Suspicious bosses were starting to sniff around your desk, looking for any excuse to take action and cut back. Don’t panic. Hand them a Kleenex and show them how you can tackle anything they throw at you. By the end of the year you will throw it back at ’em.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) If you are interested in trying something new and exciting, this is the time to experiment. Queer Bulls emerge as artistic geniuses and create something wet, wild and wonderful. Or, if the mood strikes you, plan and toss a fabulous end-of-summer party that will have them talking through the winter. Hurry before your muse wanders off to find other amusements.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Attend to home-based projects while you are focused and full of energy. Pink Twins have let their domestic surroundings stagnate through the summer. Now, you need to buff, scrub or even move some pieces of furniture around and make your home into a pink palace. Family members make their presence known. Better consider adding a moat.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) This is a good occasion to share your insights with worthy listeners. Knowledgeable, gay Crabs can expound on a variety of topics and find an outlet that gives them gravitas and power. You will be shocked when a simple, quiet idea finds and inflames an enormous global audience. Will you use your newly acquired influence for good or evil? Uh, oh.
