This is a time of sun, fun, rebirth and growth as Venus sextiles Mars. Love takes flight, goes into action and gracefully captures the object of our desires. Use it or lose it. Time is a’wasting.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Queer Bulls feel the love especially from relatives. Bridges can be built and good times are had for all involved. Find activities that get everyone together such as a family reunion. But, keep an eye on costs. Creating and maintaining budgets are never much fun, but if you can focus on controlling your monetary outlay, it leads to a cushier summer where you can sit pretty.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Do you feel that you are at a crossroad in your life? Are you seeking something more meaningful and deep? This may be your chance to energize your current path or get yourself on a new and exciting direction. May is the time to formulate your personal manifesto and see how it is received by the movers and shakers. Don’t be shy. Wallflowers will not get enough light.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Secret admirers make themselves known to you. And, some can be very generous, not only with their affections, but also with their gifts. Lucky gay Crabs can afford to be choosy and should take their time. There is one particular someone who is much more than they seem at first glance. Feel the merchandise before you try anything on.

LEO (07.24-08.23) Friends give you a leg up and a push into the limelight. They are especially supportive and ready to help, not only if you ask, but even if you don’t ask. Proud Lions are usually full of self-confidence, but nothing beats the accolades you get right now. Don’t waste time by procrastination. The door of opportunity is open. Stop standing on the threshold.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Senior staff love everything about you on the job, which is great timing for you. Take advantage of their blind devotion and make a few behind-the-scenes political maneuvers to help you solidify your position in the coming months. Queer Virgins can build on their executive acumen. Become the petty despot you always dreamed you can be.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) If you are planning to travel, include some pals on your itinerary. Anything will be more fun with a crowd. And, if you are interested in meeting new friends, now is the time to try a range of new organizations, social groups or clubs. Proud Libras have extra charisma to attract the best and the brightest. Add a bit of your own shine to dazzle the crowds.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) You have some powerful and wealthy backers who are ready to help you professionally. Proud Scorps with a greedy need for power and prestige can acquire it. But, use your gains for good and not for purely personal enrichment. Before you know it, your climb to the top will reach lofty and precarious heights. Who will love you as you cling to the small branches?

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Plan a romantic getaway with your partner now. Not only will you be able to choose the perfect spot to express your eternal love, it will be a good respite from all the stress of daily life. If you are seeking your soulmate, use the month to expand your choice of opportunities. Who knows who is waiting for you at the other end of the world?

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Strive to get along with co-workers. It will strengthen your base of support for any furtive monetary gains. You may receive a raise or some type of promotion as the month progresses. Pink Caps are hard workers, but hard work alone does not get you where you need to be. Sometimes success at work is based on a personality test. Become a master of ceremonies.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians wrest more fun out of all types of relationships now. Whether for business or pleasure, find ways to spice up and maximize the value of your partnerships. Yes, it sounds a little mercenary, but you will be surprised at how responsive others will be to your overtures and how you can eventually profit by them. Expect nothing and be surprised.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) If you have been feeling stressed, you can find a calming refuge at home. Make your individual space your personal oasis by adding a variety of mellow activities. Candlelight baths, new age music, good food and wine will all help to bring you back down to earth. By the time the summer gets fully underway, you will be ready for anything, everything and anyone.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams are in the thick of things now as your presence is required at every grand festivity. There will be plenty of parties to choose. But, the best way to get into the fun groove is to take matters into your own hands and plan a few soirees yourself. Check the guest list twice. See who is naughty and who is nice. Then load up on the naughties. : :
