October 2016

Expect an October full of shocks and surprises. Rocky retrograde Uranus opposes Mercury and Sun in Libra and squares Mars in Capricorn. Life will certainly not be boring. So hold onto your goody bag and be prepared for a rather big BOO!

ARIES   (MAR. 21 - APRIL 20)
Relationships may have their ups and downs now and that means that you will be given a rare chance to either change things dramatically or end things definitively. But could this create repercussions in your career? Proud Rams who mix business with pleasure could get bitten on the butt. But I think some of you like it that way.
TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Try to get yourself in shape or make some important changes to your health regime now. And don’t rely on your gut to guide you. Your instincts on what is expected from you on the job may be off kilter. Even a big escape from all of the stress may not bring the relief you hope. What is a gay Bull to do? How about a staycation full of assorted tricks and treats?
GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Pink Twins will learn to juggle deeply satisfying friendships with hot and sexy lovers now. Maybe these two types of relationships will mix up where certain friends become more like bosom buddies. It is all to you to decide what and who you want. But why further complicate your life when it is already a maze of intrigue and lively passions? Why not??
CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)  
Things have been heating up at the office and gay Crabs may be feeling steamed and cooked. But any upheavals in your career will be tempered by happier moments at home and even within certain relationships now. In fact you may be able to divert your stressful attention on all of the political maneuverings at work with stress-reducing maneuverings at home. Ahem.
LEO   (JULY 24 - AUG. 23)
Say what you need to say and let the buffalo chips fall where they may, proud Lion. There are events that are totally out of your control that can wreak havoc on your best laid plans, especially if they involve any type of travel - for business or vacation. But if you remain flexible, you will deftly glide through any mine fields. Hmm, how flexible can you really be?
VIRGO   (AUG. 24 - SEPT. 23)
It will be hard to be practical and thrifty now, queer Virgo, while there are so many wild and exciting things and people to do. The constant out-flowing of cash goes against all of your best efforts and can make you a little nervous. Don’t fight it too much, but do your best to ride the waves of need and greed. Maybe you will find a well-endowed benefactor to take the edge off. Ouch!!
LIBRA   (SEPT. 24 - OCT. 23)
You are pushed out into the limelight whether you are ready or not. And there is a great chance, proud Libra, that you will not be quite ready for your close-up. Never mind! In this world of 15-minute fame anything that happens now may spark up, but then it will slowly simmer down again. You will see that the world has a short memory . . . thank goodness!
SCORPIO   (OCT. 24 - NOV. 22)
Don’t rely on your intuition to guide you now, queer Scorp. Even though you are acutely strategic and prescient, you may be off-base in your assumptions, especially at work. Keep cool, calm and collected while inside you may be a burning cauldron of apprehension. All of this will pass and you will retain your reputation for being cool while very hot.
Friends and acquaintances may get into your act now, gay Archer. The good times not only rock and roll, they mosh and break dance. This could be a grand time for all if everyone pays their own expenses. But if this bill of excessive fun constantly lands in your lap you may have to speak up . . . diplomatically. Can you do that? I guess we will have to see.
CAPRICORN   (DEC. 23 - JAN. 20)
What are your long-term plans, pink Cap? Where do you see yourself headed? All bets could be off now as your professional plans could be in for a massive readjustment. What you are expecting may not come to pass. What you would never expect could be right around the corner. Then what? Be flexible, optimistic and strategic. Life will not be dull.
AQUARIUS   (JAN. 21 - FEB. 19)
There are many things going on in the background that may prove to be surprising or life-changing. And maybe you need to be a little secretive and conniving yourself, Aqueerius. Some great ideas will filter back to you from some faraway source and you can use this information to spread your own potent personal message. The world will be at your feet. Don’t trip.
PISCES   (FEB. 20 - MAR. 20)
Plan some festive get-togethers with pals now, Guppie. Not only will some of these relationships become more intense, you might find that one friend in particular can become especially close to you. Pool your resources, but keep an eye on the bottom line and stay within your budget. You can win big, but also lose big monetarily. Ah but what a way to go!
