Out in the Stars: Aug. 21-Sept. 3

The Sun enters Virgo and sets us on a practical course. But, life does not have to be totally boring. Use your clear calculating eye to suss out the latest and greatest bon temps. And, let them roll.

LEO (07.24-08.23) While you don’t usually think about money (except how you love to spend it), you might be well-served to give fiscal matters some thought now. There are some loose ends that need to be tied up and managed. Proud Lions can make a few shrewd investments with the right advice and research. Focus and prosper now. Spend with abandon later.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) You can feel that this is a make or break time of year for you. And, you may be right. Expect to be given rare opportunities to maneuver in rarified social circles where you can meet important and influential folks. Push your personal agenda and make some of your dreams come true. So, glad hand and smile, queer Virgin. Err, is that spinach between your teeth?

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Dream a dream and see if it comes true. You have extra ESP that you can use to your advantage. Proud Libras should find ways of relaxing, recharging and generally feeling mellow. This is not only needed, but necessary so you can refocus your attention and energies effectively. But, how much time out of the day do you need? Ah, that is the massage…err…rub.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Get into some mischief with your friends. Not only do they have a few tricks up their sleeves, they seem to know just what you need when you need it. Proud Scorps without a deep social schedule can expand their small intimate circle into a planet or even a galaxy. But, you have to want to take off and explore various new orbits. Take the chance.

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) If you possess any ounce of ambition, this is the time to let it leak out. You can survey the playing field with an astute eye and will know when to make the right moves at the right time. Gay Archers make inroads into any professional venture. So, venture forth and see what the big guns are loading. Shoot first and ask permission later.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) When the summer lags and your energy wanes, there is only one thing to do — escape! Pink Caps have traveling energy to burn, so burn your way through your vacation time and stretch your legs as well as your imagination. The difference now is that you also know how to stretch a dollar and make the most out of every cent. But, sharing a toothbrush to save money is inadvisable.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) Aqueerians are super sexy right now. Turn on the charm and see which snake dances along. Don’t waste all this charisma just on wicked pastimes. Put your great mind to great use to delve into the inner workings of certain persons. Intimacy is not just a physical thing. A meeting of the minds is often even more entrancing. Often… but not always.

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Relationships reach a mutual understanding. Guppies with a need to connect have ample opportunity. Enjoy every minute with your special someone. For those who are swimming the seas in search of a catch, try tossing your net further into new watering holes. If still waters run deep, cause a few waves and see who comes out of their shell.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Proud Rams buff up their elbow grease until it shines. Not only are you especially diligent at work, you also accomplish a lot of down and dirty tasks that have piled up. And, yet, all work and no play makes Aries very boooring so spice it up with a jaunt to the gym. There are folks there who you can press and impress. Will you make your mark? Hey, anything can happen.

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Every party needs a planner. Every event needs a set-up and clean-up crew. Maybe that is your reason for being — to be the able-bodied assistant in any creative and fun venture. Oh, yippee! Things could be worse, queer Bull. At least you are in the center of all the excitement. It is up to you to figure out how to delegate the more unpleasant tasks.

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Focus more attention on your domestic agenda, pink Twin. You can see things the way they are and find some practical solutions to long festering issues. The most important thing to remember is to do what is the best for you without any major compromises. But, allowing a little leeway on a minor point is fine. It will make you appear to be flexible.

CANCER (06.22-07.23) You have been ruminating and germinating lately. Do you now have a pithy comment to make? Be sure to make it when you are not only careful in your speech, but also relevant and measured. Although it may be an emotional topic, you find the strength to keep your emotions in check and create an air of calm and authority. What a nice change of pace. : :
