The Starry Eye

ARIES (March 21-April 20)

Proud Rams prepare for Thanksgiving by talking turkey on the job. Your great ideas hit their mark and give you an advantage with the mucky mucks. Say what’s on your mind to both superiors and subordinates. (Be diplomatic … ) Soon you can forget the day-to-day grind and concentrate on the bigger picture. Yes, long lunches and afternoon naps on your office couch.

TAURUS (April 21-May 21)

If great minds think alike, try to align yourself with great creative minds. Queer Bulls unleash their gay muse and create a masterpiece. Of course, if you fritter this energy on party pranks and cheap thrills, you’ll only have yourself to blame. Later in the month, all those artistic ideas evaporate and you’ll become just another cog in the corporate wheel. Axle grease, anyone?

GEMINI (May 22-June 21)

Use this month for quiet introspection and discussion between you and relatives. There are obviously problems in the past that are bubbling under the surface and need to be expressed before they erupt. Good; pink Twins can do what they need to do to pave over disagreements and live life to the fullest. Don’t kowtow to anyone. (Ha! As if you ever could!)

CANCER (June 22-July 23)

Jupiter trines Saturn and enables you to do the necessary fiscal research, focus your thoughts and create a compelling strategy. Good timing: Gay Crabs are angling for a fat wallet and a cushy financial pillow. Take time to study the small print, though; there is time to fit the puzzle together after Thanksgiving, but first you have to collect all the little pieces.

LEO (July 24-Aug. 23)

All other things being equal, you will be inordinately concerned and focused on your health and diet. Proud Lions want to slim down in time for the holidays. Strike while the spirit and flesh are both willing. At the same time you find ingenious ways to enjoy life and lust to the fullest without the extra calories. As you well know, sugar is better spread than eaten.

VIRGO (Aug. 24-Sept. 23)

With your active mind, incredible thoughts and insights come fast and furious to you this month. Queer Virgins may have trouble focusing on one particular topic for an extended period, but who cares? The idea is to accumulate all sorts of seemingly useless and frivolous ideas. You will be amazed at how you can build on these snippets and create a master plan.

LIBRA (Sept. 24-Oct. 23)

Proud Libras love what they have to say but have an audience of one to judge. Be political if you can around family. Anything you let drop will create a sinkhole … or is it stinkhole? Secrets are exposed and so are you. But this may not be a bad thing. Oftentimes vulnerability is attractive and sexy. I guess you will find out if this is one of those times.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)

Queer Scorps feel like chameleons trying on different personal styles to see which one fits just right. Take heart, dear queer soul, you crawl before you walk; this particular regeneration takes several tries before the true lavender you emerges. In the meantime, seek affirming social groups and test some opinions. But don’t go for consensus. Test the limits to get a true read.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 22)

What is the best way to harness and guide your professional success? Those gay Archers who have been working hard will reap their rewards. Those who have slid by on their oily charm may have a second chance to prove themselves. Who knows? By Thanksgiving you could be the main corporate flavor. Let’s hope it is not roasted turkey.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 23-Jan. 20)

If you’re conjuring a vacation, try to plan something extraordinary and life-changing this month. Pink Caps need a bit of zest and can put the zip back into their current life course or find even greener pastures to explore. Viva la difference; not only can you discover new things about yourself, you can also find some new and exciting travel mates.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 19)

Paging Dr. Freud: Aqueerians are in need of a consult. What is it that is holding you back from true affirmation and happiness? You have no excuse. Use this month to liberate your mind and body. Make the most of it. By Thanksgiving, you’ll tire of staring into your navel and seek to stare into someone else’s navel. Of course, as Freud said, sometimes a navel is just an orange.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)

Guppies are more focused than usual on partnership issues this month. Play your hand while Jupiter trines Saturn and puts the spark back into partnerships. Put your cards on the table and see how the points add up. By Thanksgiving you can lustily trump your partner’s ace and win the trick.
