Consolidate your gains as the Sun moves into stable Virgo. Not only can you turn a practical eye to the issues at hand, you can also build your future on solid ground and not on shifting sands. Unless of course you are relaxing at the beach.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Even though the stock market has had its ups and downs, proud Lions find that their portfolios get a lift with Sun in Virgo. Maybe it’s because you are thinking more practically and long term. Or, maybe its because you are seeking the right advisors. Whatever fills your bill, make the most of it. Too too soon you can revert back to splurges that submerges.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Not only do you have more than your fair share of charisma, you also have greater opportunities to show the world what you can do. So, do, do, do while the Sun sits in your sign. Rub elbows (among other things) with the glitterati and make good use of all the new contacts you make. Before you know it you will be on the top of the heap. The question is — which heap?

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) If stress has been building and you feel like the world is out to get you, don’t worry — you have the ability to overcome the fates. There is someone looking out for you. Proud Libras not only fine tune their intuition, they have the aptitude to maneuver behind the scenes to set things right and get things going. So, what are you waiting for?

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) This is not the time to be alone or fade into the background queer Scorp. You couldn’t escape the crowds if you tried. Sun in Virgo makes you the one to know in any social situation. Friends and hangers on seek you out for fun and excitement. And you seem to know just what to do to make any gathering glittering. Bring on the nude dancers and the beer kegs!

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If your professional path has been a long series of broken promises, this is the time to change course. Gay Archers, long impatient for some positive change, find that their career gets back on track. The secret is to make the correct choices as options open up. Will it be for the money, the power or the fun? Alas, it is never for all three.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps are ready for one more summer fling. So, pack your bags and see if there is a little extra time in your vacation schedule. If time or money are tight, there are plenty of ways to keep the hot mood going closer to home. Dine al fresco, take a new course of study, muscle in on a neighbors pool. The world is your oyster, at least until September.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Even calm, cool and collected Aqueerians can generate some sexy heat when Sun enters Virgo. Not only can you attract anyone you want, you manage to find the plum in a basket of pits. So, get out and about and make yourself available. Your charisma cannot be restrained…unless that turns you on. Will you play hard to get, hard to hold? Maybe just the latter.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Relationships get back on course when Sun enters Virgo. Not only can you make a good partnership even better, you can improve those that might need a tune-up. Open communication is important, but so too is an ability to compromise and fulfill promises. Guppies who ache for a connection can find one. But you have to find the right outlet.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Even though the end of summer beckons, it is a good idea to put aside thoughts of escape and vacation. Sun in Virgo gives you the ability to prioritize and execute any detailed task. Not only are you extra efficient, you also feel fit and energized. There is no stopping you, proud Ram. Rev your motor, get on the highway and avoid detours. Are you slippery when wet?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Queer Bulls can have one last hot hurrah before the autumn sweeps you up like so many leaves. Your organization skills can be best used in any fun or creative venture. See what you can accomplish. For those who prefer to relax, your considerable charm can be used to delegate all the party details. How many helping hands can you get to work under you?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Are there a few home chores still left to be done before the winter arrives? If so, this is an excellent time to do them. Pink Twins will be able to not only improve their surroundings, they can also deal with difficult family members and put long and strained issues to rest. A no nonsense approach will work well, as will your ability to pretend to compromise.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Pink Crabs find that they have the ability to ask for what they want in an honest and compelling way. Ask and you will receive with Sun in Virgo. Your mind is active and ablaze with some great ideas. Launch some of these new concepts and see who responds. This is no time to be shy and retiring, unless that is the best way to move others to action.
