by Madame Zzaj, Romanian Queen of all Queens. Here is your New Jersey LGBT Horoscope from Out In Jersey magazine.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): Like Ralphie in “A Christmas Story,” visions of triumph suffuse hours as Jupiter, your ruling planet, remains at home in your sign. However, December slows you down, with the Sun and Moon square Neptune, making your hopes seem mere pipedreams. Fear not, things kick back into gear in the New Year.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): As we move into your season, things should seem quite ducky for you, allowing you to be comfortable in your decisions and outlook. Don’t sweat the small stuff; Saturn is keeping everything as orderly as it can be. Neptune supports your desires, and Mars provides the oomph to achieve them.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): Mid-December, your Moon supports your competencies, but with it square Uranus retrograde and Venus. It’s easy to feel that your achievements are expected, or under-appreciated. Heck, they hardly seem important to you, but they are. The New Year corrects this apparent imbalance, but with Mercury square Mars, this recognition will be irritating. There is no pleasing some people.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): December leaves you a bit off-balance; one day what you want seems out of reach, the next day, obtainable. There’s no consistency to your engagement with life. January finds you on the same rollercoaster, one day in a slump, the next riding high. You are the stock market of astrological signs this season.
Aries (Mar21-Apr20): Whether you like it or not, it seems the planets have you in a mood. Whether you end up being confessional or confrontational with loved ones is up to you. Mercury, Saturn and Venus, in your chart, compel you to take stock, and actually communicate what’s on your mind to those near to you.
Taurus (Apr 21-May20): While some of us prefer to tuck ourselves away this season, you, my friend, are a bit “antsy” in the hooves. All the inner planets, plus Uranus are whispering in your ear, saying “go, go, go.” This might be the right time to travel and visit far-flung friends, and reconnect with relatives you think of, but rarely contact. Your wanderings should have some purpose.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): The Winter Solstice finds you at an impasse, ready to move on, but without a clear vision of what your next move is. Relationships seem stagnant, and you probably deserve better. But Venus and Jupiter are aspected poorly to your Moon, so the status quo seems to be your lot this season. Find enjoyment as you can.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Like Gemini, it seems your watchwords these next two months are patience and endurance. While you may wish to be more engaged with the small pleasures of day to day existence, some connection to it all seems lacking. There may be comfort and joy, but it will seem lacking.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22): Christmas Day falls to you, as does the Full Moon in January; but they both seem to lay claim more to your competencies than to outright joy. Let’s face it, being the dependable one, while satisfying, can be tiring. Such is the case for you this time around. You might want to scale things back, and take a long winter’s nap.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): Boxing Day finds you in total control; or rather, possessed by the appearance of the same. Uranus retrograde having a marked influence on your chart makes it so. But underneath, it seems that your confidence and control is chafing for others, so things will seem to fall apart a bit in January. You’ll have more fun if you relinquish some control.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): Even though you’re not a bear (or maybe you are, what’s on your Grindr profile?), this part of the year will have you snug in your lair, with the covers pulled up. It’s tough, with your Moon square Saturn and Mars; enthusiasm wanes. Perhaps you deserve a long winter’s nap as well.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): Well, you certainly seem to have that certain something this holiday season. Venus has moved into your sign, and remains in a favorable aspect to your Moon (New Year’s also falls under a Scorpio Moon). It certainly seems that you won’t lack for favorable attention. The planets put you out to stud.
