Spring Horoscopes for Queer Women

The latest rage in celestial reasonings.

There’s no time like Springtime, when Mother Nature makes her power forcefully felt—even in the grimy gray streets of Gotham. Take a cue from the birds singing love songs and the bees wantonly pollinating to tap into the magick power of life springing anew. Where you’ve encountered obstacles in the past, you may find yourself able to forge new ground.

PISCES
February 19th-March 20th

This month, Pisces, you’ll have the insight to identify a problem along with the energy to tackle it head-on. Mercury’s influence will help you right any past wrongs, attend to open questions and tie up loose ends. You’ve got a perfect storm of self-improvement brewing this month, so seize the opportunity.

ARIES
March 21st-April 19th

If there’s one thing you excel at, Aries, it’s winning. If there’s a second thing you excel at, it’s losing gracefully. No one knows better than you how to get up, dust yourself off and get back into the ring. You know when to move on to the next battle. Listen to your gut, and fight the good fight (even if it’s not this fight, but the next one).

TAURUS
April 20th-May 20th

Speaking up isn’t normally your M.O., Taurus, because you’re reluctant to make yourself the center of attention. How-ever, this spring you need to gently grow beyond your comfort zone and make yourself heard loud and clear. Announce your intentions, maybe only to your closest intimates, in order to start corralling soul-affirming support for your dearest desires.

GEMINI
May 21st-June 20th

You know how you’re supposed to stretch before you work out at the gym? You’re also supposed to stretch afterward, as well as throughout. The lesson to take to heart right now is to stay flexible. You need to make minor adjustments to your approach, and you need to be able to deal with crises as they come up. Take a breath and check in with yourself at least twice as often as you think you should.

CANCER
June 21st-July 22nd

There is such a thing as bad press, Cancer. As you spread your wings and take on in-creasing responsibility on the career/life-goal front, make sure you’re taking the time to make a positive impression on those you encounter. You want to be remembered for all the right reasons.

LEO
July 23rd-August 22nd

It’s not that you’re unpopular, it’s that you don’t yet know how popular you are. You have some pretty wild, far-fetched ideas that you think no one would possibly support. Give us a chance to have your back! Share your most creative ideas with the world and you will be amazed how much goodwill and support suddenly appears.

VIRGO
August 23rd-September 22nd

Life is all about compromises, Virgo. Learning to compromise with other people, and learning to compromise with yourself. You’re more than willing to make sacrifices, and you’re more than eager to play the martyr. Before making any drastic moves, ask yourself if the deal you’ve struck is really something you can handle.

LIBRA
September 23rd-October 22nd

No matter how much your loved ones may care for you, they can’t read your mind, Don’t punish those closest to you just because they can’t anticipate your needs, thoughts and feelings. Instead, reward the people you care about by making yourself extremely clear. You’d be surprised what you can get if you just ask for it.

SCORPIO
October 23rd-November 21st

Who’s sorry now, Scorpio? You wish you could go back and do things differently. You feel that you are entitled to a second chance, an opportunity to make things right. Well, you might not get that. Apply the lessons you’ve learned from one mistake to your next endeavor. Pour yourself into getting things right next time.

SAGITTARIUS
November 22nd-December 21st

You have to be your own cheerleader right now, Sagittarius. Not because you won’t have lots of friends and lovers at your side (because you will), but your own opinion of yourself is the only one that you need to listen to. If you know you’re right, don’t back down. If folks can’t get on your level then let them catch up later.

CAPRICORN
December 22nd-January 19th

You can either get things done fast, or you can get them done right. Which would you prefer? This choice also isn’t taking into account the headache you’re signing up for my making yourself work on unrealistic deadlines. It’s okay to say no, Capricorn. It’s okay to be a perfectionist—heck, it’s why we love you so much in the first place.

AQUARIUS
January 20th-February 18th

You’re feeling yourself, Aquarius, and you’re not the only one. You’ve got an extra boost of cosmic charisma this month, making you positively magnetic. It’s almost too much to bear. Such astrological influences are sweet but fleeting; I say make the most of your newfound hyper-attractiveness.
