Out in the Stars

Mercury retrogrades this week and backs into Leo. We know what that means: over-the-top miscommunication that is guaranteed to have a dramatic effect. Are you ready for your close-up? Ask for attractive pink lighting ... .

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20) Gay Rambos find that inadvertent comments take on an after-work life of their own. Rather than use your weekend to clean up the spills of the weekday, try to keep your opinions to yourself at least until the end of the month. Whoops.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21) How much 'wilde-ness' are you capable of handling? It depends on how extreme you decide to be, queer Bull. Every party offers temptation to wring every last drop of your energy. Do you have huge reserves of natural gas? Seems so from here.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21) Retro Mercury lays it all on the table with relatives. Expect to upend things at any family gathering or embark on a home project that has some very unexpected results. Gee that red wagon wheel coffeetable looked so cute in the store ... .

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23) You may get yourself into a few tongue twisters this week, pink Crab. My advice: You can make your point without skewering yourself if you think before you speak. Mistakes are costly so either don't do it or pay up.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUG. 23) You practically trip into center stage and may be totally unprepared for it. Would it be possible for you to become a wallflower for the next few weeks, proud Lion? Ha!! You may be hoisted on your own petards this week. Just be sure that they are clean.

VIRGO (AUG. 24 - SEPT. 23) Avoid acting on your intuition this week, queer Virgin. Little voices urge you to speak at inappropriate times, take ill-advised action or do something outrageously silly. Retro Mercury temps you to go overboard. Can you swim? Pack an inflatable toy in case.

LIBRA (SEPT. 24 - OCT. 23) Who loves ya baby? A few good pals do. Retro Mercury creates miscommunication between friends. Gay Libras find that no matter what they do there is someone whose nose is out of joint. At least you will laugh about it over a few beers. Better make it a keg.

SCORPIO (OCT. 24 - NOV. 22) Even politically astute proud Scorps slip and slide down the corporate ladder this week. Something that you say can get taken out of context. While you amaze yourself with your corporate vision, be sure to watch out for the low-hanging branches. Ow!

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23 - DEC. 22) Retro Mercury afflicts gay Archers with hoof-in-mouth disease. Perhaps escape is the answer? Even your vacation has its surprising moments. Luggage may head to Indiana and you may find yourself in Gary instead of Paris. I guess it could be worse.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 23 - JAN. 20) Pink Caps think that they are pretty hot stuff. But before you singe your best assets, take a look at the havoc that retro Mercury can cause. There will be plenty of leftovers available to you next month and you won't get indigestion.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 21 - FEB. 19) How many times must you have the same conversation with partners before they really hear what you have to say? Go with the flow in all relationships and let your actions speak louder and prouder than words, Aqueerius.

PISCES (FEB. 20 - MARCH 20) Guppies want to concentrate on the small details but do not be surprised if efforts take you on a detour. And you can't even delegate. Instructions to others cause confusion and delay. You think that you are quite the wit around co-workers. You are half right.
