Mercury retrogrades and eventually backs into Scorpio giving us a sense of new oomph with an element of surprise. We find the ability to strategically put our best foot forward but may be unaware of the potholes. Wave the rainbow banner and don't trip on the curb!
ARIES ( MARCH 21 - APRIL 20 ) Content yourself with the familiar and routine despite a gnawing desire to soar to new destinations. Gay Rams find that it is too much trouble to keep all loose ends tied despite their best ropes. Leave Paris to the French... or wherever she wants to go.?
TAURUS ( APRIL 21 - MAY 21 ) The temptation will be to speak from your heart but lovers send out verbal signals that either seem to miss you entirely or zap you between the eyes. Don't overreact. Let your passionate embers simmer in preparation for a rousing winter fire.
GEMINI ( MAY 22 - JUNE 21 ) Misunderstandings abound in relationships. Hold the fort together with patience. Single pink Twins find their best moves fail to impress. So why bother right now? Gather a few bosom buddies who know you well and just be yourself. Oh dear... .
CANCER ( JUNE 22 - JULY 23 ) Your job is more onerous than usual. No matter how hard you try to accomplish small tasks, they become entangled with false starts, detours and mishaps. Who needs this aggravation? Not you, gay Crab. Take five. Second thought, take ten.
LEO ( JULY 24 - AUG. 23 ) Proud Lions can't seem to find a way to just relax and have fun. Expect creative block and scattered priorities. But don't worry, cousin. Think of all the momentous work you can accomplish while you wait for a true relaxing moment. How great is that!
VIRGO ( AUG. 24 - SEPT. 23 ) Practice listening rather than doing. Queer Virgins should probably avoid any home improvements at this time since what you think you want to do will not be the final result. Isn't anyone listening to you? Err, yes, but you are not making any sense.
LIBRA ( SEPT. 24 - OCT. 23 ) Your are debonair, sexy and you charm just about anyone... until you open your mouth. Is that spinach in your teeth, queer Libra? Let actions speak louder and prouder than words. That is, if you don't accidentally spill the drinks into your romantic dinner.
SCORPIO ( OCT. 24 - NOV. 22 ) Whether you are a bull or a bear there should be no buy or sell while Mercury retrogrades. Instead, put your call out for a quiet ( read: cheap ) evening. You may want what you want when you want it but who the heck knows what that is? Certainly not you!
SAGITTARIUS ( NOV. 23 - DEC. 22 ) Gay Archers are verbally challenged in the best of times. Now gaffes take on mammoth proportions. Try to postpone any important meetings or interviews - you will either be late or wish you were. You are now Sadge to the nth degree. Or is it xxxth?
CAPRICORN ( DEC. 23 - JAN. 20 ) Things that have come to light over the past few weeks are now fading and are not as frightening as you first thought. So this is not the time to overreact to perceived cosmic rumblings, pink Cap. Perhaps it is just your stomach? Go to lunch. Order wine.
AQUARIUS ( JAN. 21 - FEB. 19 ) Your great group ideas either fall flat or are ignored. Pals disagree or there may be instances of gross miscommunication. Aqueerians are independent. Go your own way now and prepare to re-emerge as the belle of the ball. Ringading.
PISCES ( FEB. 20 - MARCH 20 ) Guppies grapple with retro Mercury in their career efforts. That means that important instructions, phone calls and emails may go astray and lead you to wasted efforts or incorrect results. Hey, it's a great time to vacation!
