Out in the Starz

Rowdy Mars retrogrades and continues its out-of-control course until September. Our small, unobtrusive actions suddenly become weapons of mass destruction. Oops! Sorry!! Will you be around to clean out the fallout, comrade?

ARIES Gay Rams smell a rat. Heck, they smell a nest of nasty, skulking rats that need to be disposed of yesterday! You haul out the tanks with retro Mars. But the rustling you hear behind the walls may be the wind. Just buy a piece of poisoned cheese and wait.

TAURUS Your dance card has become oversubscribed and the world is turning too fast. Queer Bulls are popularity-plus personified but if you feel like you just want to be alone, don't feel guilty. You are bound to trod on a few insteps if you keep up the rapid pace.

GEMINI Pink Twins feel that they are not getting the recognition or credit they deserve but must learn to manage and control petty tirades and reduce the volume. With retro Mars you have a chance to make a solid impression on the bosses. Don't forget to flush.

CANCER Queer Crabs may find that retro Mars packs a powerful, decidedly unrelaxing punch to any vacation plans. How does a week lounging on a demolition site sound? Find your relaxing interludes closer to home and plan an all-Out vacation in the fall.

LEO Piquant retro Mars piques your taste buds and sets your ardor ablaze. But are you only packing a popgun, proud Lion? There is nothing more disappointing than a promise that is bigger than the actual delivery. By September though you will over deliver!

VIRGO If you feel like relationships are not measuring up, you may be tempted to take drastic action while Mars retrogrades. Swallow your bile, queer Virgin; this is no time to assess the situation dispassionately. Dive into pleasant areas. No names please!

LIBRA Rainbow Libras are whirlwinds at work. You are a tireless motivator and a worker bee. But take an inventory of what you have really accomplished during retro Mars. You are a 'can do' type of person. Now please just do it somewhere else.

SCORPIO Proud Scorps are sizzle on the steak most times and now you are on the verge of singeing your beef tips. Pleasant pastimes can go to extremes with retro Mars. But I suspect that is the way you really like it anyway. Pack a fire extinguisher just in case.

SAGITTARIUS A new broom not only sweeps clean, it vacuums paint off the walls. Do not do massive renovations since retro Mars never knows when enough is enough. Consolidate and enjoy your surroundings just the way they are. Just like some people ...

CAPRICORN Pink Caps should be especially careful of what they say and how they say it through the summer. You have no idea how much your words will impact people and events and change the landscape. It is a shame that Congress is off for the summer.

AQUARIUS All that glitters is not gold. Aqueerians are chasing the pot at the end of the rainbow only to find that it is full of mirrors. Retro Mars says there is a big payoff but the secret is to value the pleasant ride on the rainbow itself, especially with fellow travellers.

PISCES Guppies are not usually forces of change and now you find that even a glance produces impactful results. But are they the results that you want? Wait as events unfold or at least until you sufficiently test the waters for your big splash.
