Out in the Stars
by Charlene Lichtenstein . Contributing Writer
April 18 - May I
The Sun enters Taurus and gets us moving and
grooving. Plan to nibble in new pastures, run
along with the bulls and enjoy the upcoming
spring weather. Ready? Set? Go, go. go!
ARIES (03.21 -04.20) Don’t think that your best
days are behind you, gay Ram, Far from it. You
find ways to leverage your assets and make them
pay off in big dividends. The secret is to make
carefully considered decisions and then take
action. You find that you have the resources to
shop till you drop. Hey, how much for that little
trinket by the bar? Oh, why not just treat yourself
TAURUS (04.21 -0S.21 )This a time of great op
portunity and personal advancement. Queer
Bulls can turn on the charm with just about any
one and achieve maximum impact. Meet and
greet and sway a few opinions in the schmoozing
process. But, limit your availability, lest you
squander your limited and valuable time. Some
blockheads are simply not worth the effort. You
know who they are.
GEMINI (05.22-06.21) A light shines in your
dark, dank closet. So, what are yoti waiting for?
Pry it open and empty it out. Pink Twins feel like
a weight has been lifted off their shoulders when
the gremlins fade in the light of day. Cart out the
trash and burn it to hell. You have nothing to fear
but your old, out-of-date wardrobe. And, we’ll
attend to that later.
CANCER (06.22-07.23) Zesty gay Crabs enjoy
the company of good friends. Be a joiner and a
co-joiner in various new groups and organiza
tions. You never know who you can meet and who
will figure promi
nently in your future
plans. I hear the gar
dening club has an
opening for a someone who likes to plant a few
seeds. But, watch where you stick that green
LEO (07.24-08.23) The corporate superhigh
way almost seems manageable. Good. Now is the
time to review your cruising speed. Proud Lions
must use this time to roll out their grand scale
professional plans or else become roadkill.
Charisma and charm are turned on high and
you can position yourself effectively with the
powers that be. Remember us drones on your
VIRGO (08.24-09.23) Sociable queer Virgins
can relax a bit and enjoy seeking and exploring
new vistas and valleys. This is a perfect time to
plan a grand, world tour or expand your overall
knowledge through an interesting course of
study. Elevate yourself The sky is the limit. Don’t
waste this energy just lounging around unless it’s
in a student lounge to find a (ahem) study mate.
LIBRA (09.24-10.23) Red-hot, proud Libras
have their hearts and minds on the same goal —
going for the sexual gusto. You’re insatiable now
(and will find an appreciative audience). Blame
the eternal flame on your innate charisma. No
sooner do you step on the train than you disem
bark at the next friendly station. How far will you
travel? It depends on how far you really want to go.
SCORPIO (10.24-11.22) Partners are on the
top of your mind and at the bottom of your heart.
This clarity helps you examine what you’re really
seeking in a relationship. For those proud Scorps
who are dangling their poles, you may decide to
commit or cut bait. For those who are hoping to
hook someone special, it’s time to dip your stick
into the social pond.
SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.22) All work and no
play makes gay Archers rather pleased with
themselves. Burn the midnight oil and get a few
things accomplished on the job. For those with
loftier goals, it may be possible to delegate most
of the really onerous stuff to underlings. Then you
can be freed up to rub elbows with those in-the-
know. I said rub elbows.
CAPRICORN (12.23-01.20) Fun loving gay
Caps can make the most out of their time by
applying some creative oil to any rusty idea. It is
time to express a few of your wilder opinions to a
willing crowd. At very worst, they’ll ignore you. At
very best, it can catapult you up into a new level of
respectability. Knowing you, if you’re really lucky,
it will be a descent to a new low. How low can you
AQUARIUS (01.21 -02.19) How happy are you
with your home life? This is the time to embrace
it, change it or improve it. Aqueerians tackle fam
ily issues that have become troublesome. You are
more expressive, lucid and compelling. Call it as
you see it, with sugar on top. There is no reason to
live your life based on'someone else’s prototype.
Create a new you and then break the mold.
PISCES (02.20-03.20) Unleash your best ideas
in a torrent and create a tidal wave. Then grab
your surfboard and hang 10. Guppies harness
• their plans and express them proud and queer so
everyone of note fully understands. Lend a hand
to any good gay charitable cause and get involved
globally. The possibilities are endless, if you don’t
poop out. Comprendo compadre? I
