THE BIRTHDAY GIRL: LIBRA September 24 – October 23
The Mercury/Jupiter/Vulcan threesome sits right on top of you, so you’ll
easily pluck up the courage to change hoods or get seriously oral with
a potential business partner. If you have to leave her simmering whilst
you take a little distance, mention in passing that she’ll be done like a
dinner on your return.
SCORPIO October 24 – November 22
Is chat-room activity heating you up more than your partner is? Let
smooth-mover Venus encourage you to ‘phone home’ so as to rekindle
the connection. A worthy addition to the household brings out your
nurturing qualities or adds another arm to your income-producing body.
Sliding out of an important meeting may work against you.
SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 21
Muscle-bound Mars in your physical activity zone brings to the
fore(play) new training techniques, encourages you to get those bum
jobs out of the way and almost guarantees a better workout in the
bedroom. You’ll slow down after a showdown with a pro or relly.
Something suddenly pops up in connection with a residential proposal.
CAPRICORN December 22 – January 20
‘Marry me/marry my family’ rings loudly in your ears, and you figure
you can do without the whole deal! A newcomer tells a very touching
tale, but don’t fall too quickly or you’ll go down fast. The promotional
Sun streams through your career zone, helping you to take on a new
position with the utmost style.
AQUARIUS January 21 – February 19
The art of true intimacy is suddenly putty in your hands. Now you can
have your cake and eat it, but with the same gal! Sign a contract for a
gig you’ve been aching to hook (resist rubbing it in their faces though).
The pressure’s on for wheels, with a top you can take down at your
PISCES February 20 – March 20
More job interviews, hints of a promotion or an income increase should
reach a satisfying outcome. Love-babe Venus helps you hook the gurl
of your dreams – no sweat. Happy couples sit sweetly on a property/
residential bargain or a hot new toy. Missing out on an invitation to one
prestigious party is a low blow.
ARIES March 21 – April 20
Generous planets fully pack your relationship sphere, so you’ll have
your hands full pleasuring your partner or trying to impress a new arrival
on the scene. It’s clearly ‘what goes around comes around’ when a
career opportunity rears its lovely head. Dare you to invite the new
neighbour in to taste your nibbles.
TAURUS April 21 – May 21
The soft caresses of Venus promise a goddess will be turning your
head all the way, but be extra careful you don’t get your fingers burnt
through not reading in between her lines. Timing is important, and your
desire to be given the lead by a certain company could be just around
GEMINI May 22-June 21
Passion-plus-love proves to be an awesome formula, so keep the
ball up there by injecting your well-versed humour into the equation.
Strictly-business Saturn in your communication zone indicates you’ll
get real with a financial issue or business opening. Keeping the
extended family happy is a slippery beast, but you’ll pull it off.
CANCER June 22-July 23
Insensitive Saturn in your money department looks set to create
obstacles for you to climb over and, chances are, you’ll handle the
jumps. Couples branch out in exciting new directions, with room to
increase neglected intimacy. Singles switch between a gorgeous geek
and a slightly cold customer – is she in or is she out?
LEO July 24 – August 23
With slow-moving Taurean Mars behind you, simply cruise the
vacancies until you eyeball the perfect work outfit, then wash the
interview down with a healthy burger and some fresh juice. Don’t get
sucked into the fake flirtations – instead tend to your current garden, to
save winding up with a bunch of weeds again.
VIRGO August 24 – September 23
Someone’s chilling-out in all the wrong places (ahem!) and, if you
know what’s good for you, you’ll try re-ringing her bell. Mad Mars is
still on your side, so use the energy to get that project off the floor and
into bed. A mate totally opens up to you about something you fully

As part of Queer Screen’s
new monthly Retrospective
series Queer Screen presents
Chutney Popcorn (pictured),
our favourite provocative
comedy about the bizarre
world of lesbian motherhood
and Indian family traditions.
Take this chance to see it
again on the big screen at the
Verona Cinema on Wednesday
New York photographer
Reena (Nisha Ganatra) is
the lesbian black sheep of
her Indian family. When her
sister Sarita (Sakina Jaffrey)
discovers she can’t have
children, Reena decides she’ll
have the baby and then give
it to her sister and brother-
in-law. She just needs to
convince her commitment-
phobic girlfriend Lisa (Jill
Hennessy) to go along with
the idea. Nisha Ganatra’s
debut feature received great
acclaim in the year 2000,
garnering Audience Awards
at the Berlin International Film
Festival, Paris International
Film Festival and Madrid
International Film Festival.
Five years later with the
lesbian baby boom in full
swing, Chutney Popcorn still
resonates with absolutely
laugh out loud material.
