Out in the Stars

Pride month gets underway and brings not only the usual festivities but also packs a bit of a cosmic wallop. 'Outer' planets - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto - aspect, rubadub and interact. Did the earth move for you? Oh baby!

ARIES ( MARCH 21 - APRIL 20 ) Whether you are the leader of the Pride parade or the behind-the- scenes instigator, get involved in any community effort. Proud Rams know how to have a good time and manage to teach a few newbies the tricks of the trade. Ahem... how heavy a trade is it?

TAURUS ( APRIL 21 - MAY 21 ) No matter where you roam, no matter what shores you wash up on, the fates will conspire to eventually return you back to home base. Queer Bulls have itchy feet but they take you no further than the neighborhood corner bar now. Is this a bad thing... ?

GEMINI ( MAY 22 - JUNE 21 ) There is a posse of outer planets that creates an atmosphere of verbal risk and opportunity on the job, in the greater community and even in relationships. Call 'em as you see 'em this Pride month but be ready to feel any fallout. Hey, so be it.

CANCER ( JUNE 22 - JULY 23 ) Think, control and manage your dough. Proud Crabs not only profit, they also spread their largess around. The urge is to use it to grease the wheels of influence. But can money really buy happiness? The pundits say no. Oh let's try it anyway!

LEO ( JULY 24 - AUG. 23 ) If you have happily maneuvered in the background, the planets push you out into the limelight. If you have prodded a bunch of new projects, Pride month launches them to new heights. Prioritize proud Lion. Anything more than a mouthful is wasted.

VIRGO ( AUG. 24 - SEPT. 23 ) Queer Virgins come into their own and gain confidence from their hard experiences. Maybe it's the way you walk. Maybe it's the way you talk. Whatever way you make your mark, make it in bold strokes. You never know who you will meet.

LIBRA ( SEPT. 24 - OCT. 23 ) Gay Libras are the epicenter of the social swirl. Friends gravitate to your orbit but create events that span different groups and get out of your usual crowd. Don't waste a drop of your oozing popularity and tread carefully lest you slip on your oil. Oops!

SCORPIO ( OCT. 24 - NOV. 22 ) You are in your element and can maximize your opportunities for corporate success. But isn't life more than just a fat expense account and a plush corner office. Shouldn't there be compromises for home and family? Yeah right.

SAGITTARIUS ( NOV. 23 - DEC. 22 ) Gay Archers discover a few secrets about themselves as they expand their horizons and their circle of contacts. Suddenly the world is your oyster and your innate sagittarian itchy feet need to be scratched in exotic foreign lands. Does Newark count?

CAPRICORN ( DEC. 23 - JAN. 20 ) June rouses and arouses you. Not only do pink Caps have the pick of the litter, they also have the entire group. How to choose? You fall head over heals and drain your bank account in the process. Are your eyes too big for your head? Typical.

AQUARIUS ( JAN. 21 - FEB. 19 ) Aqueerians measure the cause and effect of certain people in their life. They need to create a balance and synergy between very important needs ( and constraints ) such as career and partnerships. What do you really want? Kvetch, kvetch, kvetch.

PISCES ( FEB. 20 - MARCH 20 ) June is a great time to get your cruiser in ship shape. Invest time and energy into a health and well-being regime. Guppies love to sail the high seas but should do so in a plush yacht instead of a rubber dinghy. Unless of course you are into dinghys.
