Ah, August. Who’s ready for more growth experiences? Another eclipse, Mars still retrograde, and the plot thickens…
What do you do when you can’t get what you want? If you’re feeling frustrated right now, you’re not alone. How do you keep your heart open?
June is a time to let some joy and lightness shine into The Struggle That Is Love. Just remember to slow your roll when Mars goes retrograde.
Uranus moves into Taurus this month—Uranus likes to stir things up and Taurus hates change. What will this mean for our sweet, queer love lives?
April can feel lusciously ripe, but remember to take your time. Be like honey dripping out of a jar. Go so slowly, it’s tormenting.
This month brings Venus — planet of “hmm, maybe it would be nice to touch another human…” — into Aries, sign of “I’m going to explode if we don’t do this right now!”
If you’re caught in a bad pattern, or can’t shake heartbreak or anxiety, ask yourself: what else might be true right now that I can’t see?
Saturn in Capricorn asks us to dig into reality and actually do the work. What will help us create a sustainable future for ourselves and the ones we love? How can we show up and dedicate ourselves to this process?
“This has been a year of intense pressure on all our intimacies — even the strongest relationships are undergoing deep transformations.”
Enjoy the powerfully transformative energy of this month. Work your strongest spells for healing, for an end to suffering, for ending all the structures and oppressions that currently feel immortal.
This is how Jupiter feels in our charts: this massive planet is our cosmic gay cheerleader. It the part of our psyche that lets us exceed our current capacity, and has faith that we can.
“Eclipse season officially ends this month, as the Full Moon in Pisces on the 6th closes out this lunar cycle. Everyone breathe a deep sigh of relief… and take a moment to check out where you’ve landed.”
“This month, we get to say no and yes. No to toxic relationship patterns and deeply internalized self-hatred. Yes to sweetness, hotness, surprise, reciprocity, and insight.”
This month begins with all the feels turned way high. With three planets in Cancer, we’re getting a guided tour through the more sensitive places in our hearts.
Jupiter is our inner gay cheerleader, and as it moves direct this month our spirits will be donning those striped athletic socks and creating rowdy, raunchy chants against all the forces of oppression.
After April’s gentle lessons to release and surrender, May is here to get us into trouble.
When Venus goes retrograde, all our past decisions are up for review. If you’re generally aligned with yourself and your desires, this doesn’t have to be a hard time. But if there’s something you’re trying not to face, expect some revelations.
You don’t have to hide under your pillows or hide from your partners this month, but expect a few potholes in the otherwise smooth pavement of your relational rapport.
“Eclipses are times when our ordinary lives are interrupted, when we’re asked to reckon with hidden desires and motivations, secrets long buried, and unexpected breakthroughs and revelations.”
This month, we’re looking at your coming year in queer love: how you’ll be able to grow, where you’ll be able to heal, and where you can hold the faith and keep the dream alive. Here’s your roadmap to how to love yourself better this year, and show up for the ones you love — whether that’s your committed life partner or your an international network of queer communities.
