Out in the Stars: Aug. 9-22

Summer is not the only thing that is hazy and lazy. Life grinds down to a halt as Saturn conjuncts all personal planets. Call it a needed time out and an energy conservation pit stop. Then full speed ahead!

LEO (07.24-08.23) If your money situation was tight, expect more of the same now. If you thought you had a few extra bucks in the till, you find the drawer locked or empty. Proud Lions have to satisfy their extravagant tastes with more mundane (and much cheaper) amusements. Be creative or austere now. Splurge and buy drinks for the house later.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Many of your personal projects will be put on hold for the time being. That is because nothing you do will move them forward or in the right direction now. This may not be a bad thing though. Queer Virgins will be better off taking a breath to pause, reflect and reprioritize. There is too much on your plate to handle everything effectively. Start a diet.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Is there something under the surface that itches and annoys? If so, there is not much that you can do to scratch the itch. Cool down, chill out and relax. There is plenty of time to get your karma chugging and your psychic baggage opened and dumped. For now just meditate good thoughts and channel the benign spirits.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) If you feel too caught up in the whirlwind of the group dynamic, you have a chance to sit and catch your breath. Things slow down to a crawl, so much so that you may find it a bit too solitary and staid. So, queer Scorps who find that their pals command too much time and attention should enjoy them while they can. Life is pretty boring otherwise.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Your otherwise stellar career progress appears stalled and dead-ended. All your best moves do not have the intended effect. But, look on the bright side. This gives you a chance to take a step back, survey the landscape and make necessary adjustments in your plans. Gay Archers will be reinvigorated. Prepare for your coup d’etat.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Although this might seem like an opportune time to summer travel, pink Caps are advised to briefly stick to the tried and true and avoid any wayward twists and turns. You find that there are too many barriers and delays. Or, perhaps there are too many loose details to tie up. Adventure is not all its cracked up to be right now.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) As much as you think of yourself as a sex symbol, the cosmos shine an unflattering light on your best assets. Aqueerians can’t seem to attract the lovers they want and manage to get too involved in wasteful, uninteresting liaisons. As much as you love to strut your stuff, why not try to blend into the background and look sultry in very low light.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Guppies try their best in certain relationships, but even your best efforts may not move the needle. Things appear to stagnate and fester. Instead of tossing it all out, remain patient. Learn from your past frustrations and attempt do better. Before you know it you will have your choice of the best of the best. Now that is a nice change of pace.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams want to outshine the competition on the job but can’t seem to gain any traction in the climb. No matter what you try, you seem to reach a dead end or a stream of disapproval. No matter. Don’t despair. Things are temporarily on hold. Just box up your great ideas, enthusiasm and rampant ambition and unwrap it later on. Then open your Pandora’s Box!

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) There is something fabulous swimming in your head but it can’t get out. Could it be a burst of under appreciated genius just waiting to make its stage entrance? Anything is possible but no one will notice. Queer Bulls could chalk it up to creative block. This is not the time to grace the universe with your artistic sense. Mull, dream and wait. Razzle dazzle ’em later.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Your home may be a source of frustration. Pink Twins ache for changes, improvements, motion or even a light breeze or new air freshener around the house. Alas, it is not to be. But, all things come in good time. Before you know it, you will be able to implement all your carefully crafted plans and make your humble surroundings a palace.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Although you are filled with brilliant ideas, it will be difficult to gain an appreciative audience. Gay Crabs may be surrounded by nay sayers, dullards and a few egotists. Don’t toss your pearls of wisdom before these swine. Take a cat nap and wake refreshed and raring to go go go. Find a new audience. Then you make headlines. Uh, oh!
