September 23–October 22
Sure, go overboard with finances (and feelings) around Labor Day: Cash flow should flood come fall. So schuss at Libra-ruled Gay Ski Week in New Zealand in early September, happening in appropriately named Queenstown. Since The Lord of the (wedding) Rings land legalized civil unions, you might even take the plunge—just steady yourself for October’s bungee jump–like bounces.
October 23–November 21
You Scorpions are more stingingly witty than Sandra Bernhard, but your undeniable magnetism this fall protects you only so far. Please consider a holistic retreat (or anger management course...yes, it’s bottled up).
November 22–December 21
September is ideal for road trips with longtime pals, but you could mistake friendship for something more, à la Courtney and Lili in Julie Johnson. Channel romantic impulses into GLAAD-handing charity work. Come October, watch out when lifting any heavy equipment.
December 22–January 19
This autumn you’ll realize every professional ambition, so cap it with a celebratory voyage. You don’t have to behave like a tweaked twink, but you don’t need to act like pulp novelist Ann Bannon’s closeted characters either.
January 20–February 18
Attachments could prove sticky, and your career’s about to take flight. For a sign associated with humanitarian causes, your sense of self is often oddly weak. Soar somewhere exotic yet enlightening to shine clarity and insight on your needs.
February 19–March 20
You fishies need a sea change, especially since you’ll be swimming in powerful circles by late October. A pleasure cruise to win at love (say, Olivia’s Mexican Riviera with Martina) might even reel in unexpected corporate-shark contacts. Tell anyone who objects that you are no guppy and have fish to fry.
March 21–April 19
Take your baby somewhere special (maybe charter a private yacht) on Labor Day. Emotions and passions, good and bad, flame in October. Find a physical outlet for that competitive drive. Take your baby somewhere special—again—in late October.
April 20–May 20
An uneasy sense of stalled energy brings out your bullying side in October. Before you become scarier than the thought of a Basic Instinct sequel, stop masking your deeper feelings by Halloween. Reward your extremely patient partner by planning something deliciously decadent for the holidays.
May 21–June 20
Single? Southern Decadence makes you the Big Easy. Hitched? Late October in New England could renew your commitment (hint, hint). Wherever you go, foliage won’t be the only thing blazing and falling—so be straightforward if you are partnered.
June 21–July 22
You may be the zodiac’s homebody, but you should put yourself and your ideas out there. The fall is all about harnessing creativity and accessing that inner child (don’t worry, the inner parents are there too). Planning a literal family? October is fertile!
July 23–August 22
September proves particularly fruitful for reconciling with estranged (homophobic?) siblings or volunteering for biz trips that improve your career standing. Partners and kiddies feel neglected? Take pride and parade them through NYC for Halloween.
August 23–September 22
Don’t make Labor Day just that! Granted, money doesn’t grow on trees unless you plant wisely. So blossom: Splurge and sow some well-deserved wild “hautes” in September. Avoid travel in October. Period.
