Out in the Stars: Oct. 31-Nov. 13

November creates ruckus and rampage, thanks to retrograde Uranus trine Venus and eventually square Sun and Mercury. Whew! And, not a moment too soon. We have become too sedate and self satisfied. Now is the time for change in whatever shape or form. Don’t be a turkey — gobble up the opportunities that will now abound.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Your winning ways get you invitations to the top parties, but the social frenzy may wind up being too much, too fast. Even queer Scorps who tend to have good common sense can over-extend, over-do and over-everything now. Of course, someone might say that this is all prep work for the holidays. If so, pace yourself so you can go the distance by New Years.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) There is someone working behind the scenes who is trying to help you. Try not to thwart their efforts by dredging up the past and eyeing impossible projects and goals. Gay Archers can enjoy November if they allow themselves a little down time and a redirection of their attention to domestic tasks. But, don’t worry — that does not necessarily mean doing laundry.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Consider friendships to be just another political situation to be navigated this November. Friends want the honest truth — or do they? Something that you say, in all honesty, may not be what they want or need to hear. Make a sharp appraisal of any platonic situation and see if sugar will work better than salt. I’m sure that you would want the same, should the situation be reversed.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Even if you think everything is A-okay at work, you could face a surprising upheaval now. Will your political fortunes change dramatically? Possibly. Will you be able to benefit for any major changes? Perhaps, in time. For now, spread your charm as thick as possible and massage the power elite carefully. Who knows? Your next office could even have a door and walls.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Self promotion is sometimes difficult for you. November insures that you garner some attention for yourself in extreme ways. Can you control your message? Guppies now make their entrance onto center stage in a range of disguises. Who do you want to be? Whoever you are, it will be a splashy surprise that makes headlines. So, avoid cellophane pants just in case.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Expect the unexpected in any happy jaunt, especially those that take you far afield. Proud Rams feel like globetrotting, but may find that they stub their hoof at every opportunity. That is okay, as long as you avoid the deep potholes and bleak alleys. You find that it brings you in touch with some very interesting folks. How interesting, however, is up to you. Uh, oh.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) The focus is on relationships, queer Bull. You are full of verve and almost anxious for a deep connection. But, the result of any carefree, heart-throbbing encounter cannot be assured to last very long. As the month progresses, you might find that all that was, is now spent. Brush it off and try another conquest. Just be sure to pack some common sense this time.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) You love where you work — at least this month. And maybe that is because work is in turmoil and there is a bit of a revolutionary in you that loves to see the old order upended. Be prepared for anything in your career. And, be warned — by the end of the month the skeletons not only emerge from your closet, but also dance. Join in the jig.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) You find love and romance in the strangest places, which means you will have to get out of your shell and make yourself available for viewing. Eat drink and be very merry. And, yet, before you know it, all those deferred job tasks rear their ugly heads and tie you to the office. Don’t let too many things stagnate. Try not to get bogged down during high party season.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Make your home a love nest and see who flies by and settles in. Proud Lions have more than their fair share of sexual opportunities, but will need to be discerning about whom they will bring home to meet mother. In a couple of weeks you find that you have so many enticing invitations that your sphere of influence expands and stretches. See if your reach exceeds your grasp.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgins might upset their carefully balanced life by taking a foolish risk in an established relationship. What you think will be the end result, may not happen at all. Surprises are the only constant now. Improve your chances of success by opening the lines of communication. You don’t have to be honest, just approachable. Then sell ’em what you can.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Keep your eye on the job with the ultimate goal of saving anything and everything you make. Money makes the world go around for you, especially if you invest or save it. Too soon your usual bad spending habits will win out over your new sensible frugality. But for now, get through the craziness at work by keeping your head down and your pockets full.
