Out in the Stars: July 12-25

Mars squares Pluto setting off a rash of rash actions. This may be a good thing if we are interested in changing the landscape and creating potholes. Errant bulldozer anyone?

CANCER (06.22-07.23) If job related stresses come to a head, try taking some time off and avoiding any confrontation. Gay Crabs feel that they have reached the breaking point at work. While this may be true, you will also find that Mars square Pluto makes matters worse. But all is not lost. No decisions need to be made now. Get lost. Even better, get lost with you-know-who.

LEO (07.24-08.23) You dream of artistic greatness and this may be the time that you achieve it…with a price tag. Proud Lions revel in the attention that Mars square Pluto provides. All your efforts impress and delight as you continuously feed the press machine to keep the spotlight shining. I say that if your ego needs a stroke, find a well endowed admirer and ask for a handout.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgos manage to grab all the attention in any large group. Your personal stock gains in value and takes you to new places to meet new, influential people. Good! But keep half an eye on your domestic agenda. It is too easy to lose sight of the basics while the stars (and you) glitter. Balance is not only everything, it is the only thing right now.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Proud Libras start off by sounding wise and spiritual. But, it will soon become apparent that your words can take on a volatile and earth moving tone. This is not necessarily a bad thing. You hold some strong opinions that are not always heard above the general static. Sometimes you have to call it as you see it. Are you wearing your glasses?

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) A friend in need should probably be avoided, unless you don’t mind picking up their bills. Queer Scorps feel tied down by certain needy, greedy folks who can drain not only the surrounding energies, but also the resources. How much are you prepared to give, give, give? Tough love is in order now. Does that also mean leather and chains? It is up to both of you.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Ill conceived and emotional reactions in your career can alter your “public face’ and how you are perceived in general. The temptation to ratchet the rhetoric may be too much to resist. It is much safer for gay Archers to hide into the background in any major professional project or, even better, make themselves scarce. Mars squares Pluto suggests a quick vacation. I agree.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) While a getaway seems to offer a deserved relaxing break, the opposite may be true when Mars squares Pluto. Pink Caps with a need to recede and a yearning to make their vibes more mellow are abruptly pulled back into the action. As you boil on the front burners, think of how successful you will be eventually. There is no rest for the weary, but there is money and status.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Suddenly everyone wants a piece of you. Which section will you offer friends and which one will you offer lovers? Try to parse out your best qualities equally, Aqueerius, unless you want to cut some strings. Mars squares Pluto and can make either side dissatisfied and kvetchy. If diplomacy fails, try theatrics. If that fails, take your show on the road.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Relationships may conflict with your professional aspirations when Mars squares Pluto. Guppies allow themselves to be swayed by what they think partners want. But, this would be a mistake since there is no way to know the wants of others at this time. If you are fishing for a catch, avoid dipping your pole into the work pool. It is too full of sharks.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Attend to the small details when Mars squares Pluto, proud Ram. Not only will you avoid mistakes of global proportions, you may be able to capitalize on hidden opportunities that often get lost in the back of the file drawer. Of course, it will be easy to forget that the devil is in these same details. Carefully consider your options lest you get pitchforked. Yikes!

TAURUS (04.21-05.21)
Fun leads to unmanageable games as Mars squares Pluto. But, queer Bulls may be ready for an out-of-this world, uncontrollable liaison or three. Tap into your creativity and see what (and who) spurts. The secret to your success is to know when enough is enough, when to turn off the bubble machine and when to concentrate on the end product. But, you know that!

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Pink Twins avidly plan and execute home projects now. But are partners in agreement? There is a tendency to rush into various works without the proper sign-off or notice. You find that acceptance or even just acknowledgment makes the process easier. Also, defer highly emotional conversations with relatives until you can view things dispassionately. Maybe in August?
