Just when you thought it was safe to speak, chatty Mercury retrogrades and rowdy Mars moves into mouthy Sag. Words pack a punch, but in unexpected ways. Before you knock yourself out listening to your own voice, count to three ... and then use your tongue for more pleasurable pursuits.

ARIES You yearn for appreciation from those in power but it just doesn't come. Gay Rams need a pat on the back but this ain't the week to bleat. Keep issues to yourself until mid-February. Then upend the corporate hierarchy and assume the position yourself.

TAURUS Queer Bulls are hot to trot but your best-laid come-on lines don't seem to score as Mercury retrogrades. Let actions speak louder and prouder than words. It is an excellent time to share a few well-placed nuggets with your favorite special someone.

GEMINI Mars in Sag makes you realize that you simply do not want to be alone. Yet, retro Mercury may make you feel more alone than ever. Do a little self-maintenance while you wait for the planets to redirect. Can you improve on perfection, pink Twin?

CANCER Gay Crabs are anxious to push their pencils on the job. Don't expect a medal from all your hard work at least not as partners as concerned. Retro Mercury brings old festering issues into the fore, like your late-night work schedule. You ARE working late, aren't you??

LEO Don't push your luck when Mars moves into Sag. Proud Lions pine for recognition but this is not the time to demand your due. Bide your time with more creative enterprises. Full body paint does wonders for your Outlook, not to mention your popularity.

VIRGO Queer Virgins are footloose and fancy free. But before you trip on your laces, stick closer to home for your jollies. Put more effort into making your home an entertainment mecca. There is nothing like chestnuts roasting on a open fire. Ouch! Ouch!

LIBRA Words pack a punch with Mars in Sag. But retro Mercury can't seem to let well enough alone at home. Before you upend the applecart of familial bliss, wait until Mercury redirects on the 23rd. Then toss a few apples along with some rotten tomatoes.

SCORPIO What will it take to get you where you want to be monetarily gay Scorp? Learn a few lessons but don't broadcast your knowledge yet. Retro Mercury stirs up a hornets nest from any honey-coated comment. Oh well, just count your money quietly ... .

SAGITTARIUS Retro Mercury bullies its way through bear territory. However, with Mars in your own sign, queer Archers have personal power supreme. With the help of Venus, you become a social gale wind. I've heard that blowhards are very popular in certain circles ...

CAPRICORN You think that you are brilliant and witty but pink Caps find unique ways to put their hooves in their mouths. My advice: let the energy surge of Mars in Sag dictate your every move and use this time to spread the good gay karma around ... quietly!

AQUARIUS Aqueerians allow their intuition to run amok when retro Mercury. The real pothole in your path is your trusting nature with those who do not have your best interests at heart. Keep a few tricks up your sleeve ... or at least on your frequent-caller list.

PISCES Guppies glide to the top corporate rungs when Mars energizes your professional advance. Pals however get a bit miffed at what you say. 'Jealousy?' you think. No. It is retro Mercury mocking your successes. Good thing too; you need perspective.
