Whether you decide to look hopefully forward or nostalgically backward this January is totally up to you. The main thing is to find ways to make your personal oil burn brightly through 2011. Jupiter slides into randy Aries and slowly squares volcanic Pluto as the months progress. Just don’t slip on your own grease.

CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Pink Caps find new ways to enjoy their home. Maybe this means that you will move to some luxurious palace or maybe it means that you spruce up your current crib. Whatever you do, be sure that it is a reflection of you — your personal tastes and sense of style. Perhaps, so much so that family starts to beat a path to your door. Uh, oh.

AQUARIUS (01.21-02.19) You have the gift of gab, the golden touch and that certain je ne sais quois, Aqueerius. Can you master your mouth and make it work to your advantage? Before you get into trouble, think carefully of what you want to say and whom you should say it to. You may inadvertently blurt out a secret or deliver an accidental insult. Why is this year different from any other year?

PISCES (02.20-03.20) Money seems to come to you effortlessly through 2011. Guppies with a need to acquire, find that they have the funds to buy themselves what they want. Soon pals get into the act and realize that you could be a soft touch. Will you be swayed by a series of sob stories? It is okay to pass the occasional box of tissues but draw the line at the cash box.

ARIES (03.21-04.20) Gay Rams feel a surge of luck and opportunity early in 2011. You feel as if you can accomplish anything and everything. Go for it, bubbele, but know when to conserve your energy and just make your plans. Your exuberance can steamroll corporate competitors, but can just as easily roll on the toes of the big cogs. Or, maybe that is the plan?

TAURUS (04.21-05.21) Expect the unexpected all through 2011, queer Bull. You can knock the socks off any hidden enemy and you won’t even realize your victory. So, just keep doing what you are doing, think good thoughts and enjoy your surprising good luck. Before you know it, you will make your big mark on the world. Gosh, I thought graffiti was illegal?

GEMINI (05.22-06.21) Friends are not only a source of fun, but they are also very helpful to you in a myriad of ways. Need some advice, pink Twin? All you have to do is ask. Need some muscle? No problem. But, money may become a source of friction if you let it get out of their hand and into yours. They say it is better to give than to receive. Ah, but what do they know?

CANCER (06.22-07.23) Career opportunities take off into the stratosphere in 2011. There is nothing that you cannot do once you put your mind to it. Aim for the top of the heap before partners begin to feel left out. Soon life could become a big balancing act where you have to figure out how much time you can reasonably devote to each of your life’s passions. Is it lonelier at the top or the bottom?

LEO (07.24-08.23) Expand your vistas, proud Lion. Itchy paws must be scratched and what better place to do that than in some faraway exotic paradise? Slowly though, through the year, the nitty-gritty details of the job start to get their claws in you. Is it possible to disentangle yourself from the boring and mundane so you can soar to the heights. Let’s just see how you can do that.

VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Queer Virgins have a certain sex appeal that lasts and lasts. You sizzle and fry. See who you can lure into your frying pan. The trick for you will be to decide who is the ultimate one from a field of thousands. The entire year could be one incredible romance after another. Be choosy, be discerning and take your time. Its a dirty job but someone has to do it.

LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Bring relationships to a new level in 2011. Proud Libras who ache to meet their match will not only have ample opportunities, but also fairly good choices. For those who are part of a pair, it is possible to improve on the bliss level. Set ground rules as things get more serious. If you decide to upend your living accommodations you want to be sure that it is the right move.

SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Success is built detail by detail. So, this year you have the rare chance to attend to every nit-picky detail to build your empire. The only thing that could derail you is a loose lip or a careless comment. Other than that, it is all up to you. Focus and don’t delegate this delicate work. Get hands on experience. Hey, watch where you put those hands, buster!

SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) Fun whips up to a frenzy all through 2011. Gay Archers with a sense of adventure and mayhem can get into loads of lovely trouble without even trying. It is also a creative year for you. Dip into your art pot and see what you can stir up. But, don’t waste money on worthless trinkets and trashy hangers on…unless that is part of your creative process. : :
