2010 Capital Pride Guide

Heavenly Round Up: There are contradictions and confusions in the air and all around. Key elements turn up missing, or just plain not where anyone can get a hold of them. Don’t focus on what doesn’t work out. Don’t home in on what isn’t going to happen. Don’t get wrapped up in plans that aren’t going through. There’s so much you can do and see. There are so many people to connect with on so many levels. If the milk is spilled, don’t cry — call the cat instead. Wear a smile to accessorize.

Aries: These are the times that try a person’s soul. And to a very good end. Test yourself and stay alert for the results. Find out what you’re made of and develop confidence in your mettle and character. You could go far, but it won’t happen if you get snarled in the details.

Taurus: Look around you. Are you happy yet? You have every opportunity to enjoy yourself. You have every advantage in making those around you more themselves than they’ve ever been. You have more gifts than you can count. Let the chips fall where they may.

Gemini: It’s an answer that’s blowing in the wind. And it doesn’t have to do with becoming a grungy hippy. You’ll have to be a better listener if you want to know what it is that’s going on two beats before the rest of the hordes catch on. Think pink for success on Pride Festival Sunday.

Cancer: You’re ready, willing and able. You only have to get past all those tiny, bothersome details. Once you’re loaded for bear and out the door, everything will resolve into direct simplicity. Apply common sense liberally and sunscreen with forethought to maximize your fun.

Virgo: Give it all you’ve got and then reach down deep for another ten percent. You’re a contender. You’re a winner. You’re a champion. You only have to allow yourself to go ahead and prove it to the world (and you, of course). Click with the cute person next to you.

Libra: Dance like there’s no tomorrow. You can soak in a hot tub to get your parts back in gear. Run yourself ragged — Pride comes but once a year. Take risks with impunity. Let yourself scrape the bottom of the barrel. Wring every last drop of fun from the day.

Scorpio: You’ve controlled yourself admirably. Is it time to let go? Is it time to let it all hang out? Is it time to damn the consequences and the torpedoes, since you want to go full speed ahead? Only you know when your pop-up timer is going off. Share with a Virgo.

Sagittarius: Destiny could be just around the corner. Are you going to reach out and grab that brass ring with both hands? Are you going to hold back out of some misplaced sense of obligation or compassion? If you don’t look after yourself, no one else will try either.

Capricorn: You’re in it to win it. You’re homing in on your target and you plan to acquire your objective at practically any cost. You can do this, but you can’t do it half-heartedly. You can have it all, but you can’t hold anything back. You might try wearing shorts.

Aquarius: It’s not what you know, it’s what you’re prepared to do about it. It’s not who you know, it’s who you’re ready to get down and work with. So will you stand there for the rest of the events and wonder, or will you jump in and get properly involved?

Pisces: You used to be more open to new ideas. You used to be more delighted with all the surprises the universe made just for you. You used to love to find new people, concepts and places to fill you with joy and liveliness. What on earth are you still waiting for?
