'-6SRWOLJKW Mighty Party! He’s even broken the international barriers to play in Canada, Brazil, Amsterdam and was recently booked for a series of events in the Asian market in both Hong Kong and Bangkok. The incredible impact Roland has made on audiences has certainly secured him a position on the discerning partygoer’s “Hot List” of gay club DJs. As for what lies ahead for Dj Roland Belmares, it appears he is dedicated to dance music beyond simply maintaining his status as one of the scene’s top rated DJs.

'-5RZODQG%HOPDUHV Interview by Glenn Dillard, Jr. TWiT Magazine recently caught up with the highly sought after DJ Rowland Belmares. With us, he shared some interesting tidbits of his exciting career as well as some notable personal highlights. In 1996, Dj Roland Belmares began his DJ career at a small club called The Forum in his hometown of Austin, TX. Roland quickly garnered a steady following and began building a name for himself in town and far beyond the walls of his weekly residence. Since that time, Belmares has been called to play for several top events across the US from San Francisco to Miami, including major circuit events like White Party, Winter Party (Miami), Alegria (New York), Joining Hearts (Atlanta) and of course the world famous Gay Days (Orlando) headlining the original Reunion Pool parties, Arabian Knights and the weekend’s crown jewel: One Pg. 8

Roland is currently back in school working on furthering his education and further honing his musical production talents. He has already worked with many of today’s Dance floor Divas including Billie Myers, Pepper Mashay, Pat Hodges, Kristine W, Abigail and Debby Holiday.

Ingredients:

2 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 2 1/4 cups sugar, divided 2 eggs 1 16 oz can crushed pineapple 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup coconut 1/2 cup chopped nuts 1/2 cup margarine, melted 1/2 cup milk

by Blue Jean Granny

Hi Boys and Girls, Good to talk to you again. Oh, I got a wonderful threat for myself. Bought one of those coffee pots that you put the little k-cup in and it makes one cup at a time. I love my coffee, but I want it fresh, fresh, fresh. My hubby, dear that he is, always set the coffee pot up for me at night before bed so I would have coffee first thing out after my feet hit the floor in the morning. But I could never teach him how to make less than a full pot. Well, when I was younger I could make a big dent in a pot of coffee, but now I have to spread it out over the day, and warmed over coffee just isn’t the same. So I am in hog heaven with my new toy, and by the way, so is hubby. He doesn’t have to worry about making coffee every night. Whenever the mood hits me I can go in, stick in a little cup, push a button and in one minute have a great cup of coffee. Ain’t progress great? Well, what are we going to cook today? Let’s make something to enjoy with a cup of coffee. This cake is moist and wonderful. I have had this recipe over 30 years. It was given to me by a co-worker in the office I worked at. We had a lot of pot lucks and birthday celebrations, and she would always bring this cake, (and let me assure you, we all tried to get there first to get a slice). She finally shared the recipe but it had no name, so for at least 30 years it has been known as Barbara’s Cake. Simple to make and the icing is a breeze. Pg. 10

Mix flour, soda, salt and 1 1/2 cups of the sugar; add eggs and pineapple, mixing well. Stir in vanilla. Pour into greased 9x13 inch pan. Mix the brown sugar, coconut and nuts together and sprinkle over the batter. Bake 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees until it tests done with a toothpick. Heat margarine, milk and the rest of the sugar, over medium heat stirring until the sugar melts; pour over the cake as soon as you take it out of the oven. Let cool before serving. A little vanilla ice cream, served with this is really nice also. But you do as you wish. It’s your dessert. Note: Just in case you are wondering do not drain the pineapple; use it just as it comes from the can. As for the nuts I really prefer pecans, but walnuts are nice also. However, this is Texas and we do love our pecans. Before I go for another cup of coffee, let me wish you well until next time. Remember, Work Smart, Play Hard and Take time out for a Cookie.

“Use Me” Premiers as San Antonio’s Newest Groundbreaking and Progressive HIV and Sexual Awareness Program. By: Brett Bonney

I

’d like all of you to take a moment and flash back to your first sexual experience, whether it be alone or with someone else. For many, this might take us back to our teen years and into a time when we knew very little about how it worked but were bound and determined to experience it regardless of that fact. If you’ve ever had to ask “Is that a semen stain on that towel?” or thought “I wonder if anyone will notice that the Vaseline is missing” then our mental time machine has taken us right where we need to be. It’s time to make a quick mental note as well. How much information about sexual health and safety did you know then at that first moment? Research shows that in gay populations as well as all others, thinking about having and actually having sex happens in our early to mid-teens. That’s no accident and should come as no surprise since the wonders of puberty happen to ruin our lives for more than a few months about that time as well—which makes no sense because in a time where life says we want to look and sound our best, puberty disagrees. According to existing health and wellness organizations, San Antonio and Texas in general have one of the toughest male gay communities to break into and provide services to because of its culture and location with so many in need and few common resources. And while we’re back here in time fantasizing about our first sexual encounters and relationships, we need Pg. 14

to make another stop. I remember being in middle school or high school, stuck sitting in a class of confused fellow students, trying to wrap our minds around why the baseball coach and science teacher (that never would have even shared the same table together in the teacher’s lounge) were trying to explain the ins and outs of sexual reproduction and the perils of sexually transmitted diseases. Not for a lack of trying, they blundered their way through the sexual mechanics which to me sounded more like the furniture assembly instructions you get from IKEA. With faces ashen and our imaginations violated, we finally made it to the sexual health portion. The slide show began featuring pictures of Herpes, Syphilis and Gonorrhea infections. Two minutes later, we left the classroom disgusted and confused with a mind full of questions, and the bananas we used for the condom administration portion (which came conveniently right before lunch). Two minutes? Really? The only “STD” mentioned in detail was pregnancy and when HIV made its way into the conversation, it sounded more like theoretical physics than something to be taken seriously. There was absolutely no mention of homosexual sex, healthy sexual practices for anything other than procreational sex or the importance of regular testing and precautions to avoid the nightmares we had just witnessed. I walked through the halls to my locker

mumbling profanity under my breath and somewhere in Tibet, a monk looked up from raking leaves in commune and said, “What?.” Sometime later I would also be approached by my parents with the same issues and advice. I calmly consoled them and explained to them that we’d had late night HBO and Cinemax for years. Looking back, my story is not unique or uncommon. In fact, your flashback to those moments may be even more vague and disappointing. The standards for early adult sexual and health education have been unsatisfactory in a way that is no more acceptable than hate crimes and homosexual intolerance. Since the 70’s, HIV has spent more time being swept under the rug than it has being cleaned off of the floor. Poor early education has helped underline the increase of transmission despite the moves it’s made forward in modern times as the world clambers to contain diseases that are almost completely preventable. Youth education is improving and there are many organizations that are currently fighting for reform with some success but its implementation is still a problem. Sadly, the 13 to 25 year old demographic is still too clueless as we find the highest rates of new infection of HIV and all STD’s within it. Some education is better than none but it’s become painfully obvious that it’s just not enough to save the youngest and newest members of our gay community. Unfortunately, it’s not the only culprit in this article’s list of villainy. Adult education has also seen its share of the negative spotlight as we struggle to educate the world at large about the risks and safe sex practices. There are many fully grown adults that still don’t know any more about the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases and their short and long term consequences than they did ten to thirty years ago. The fear of testing, the April 20, 2012

misunderstanding of the health risks, ease of accessibility, geographical availability, relatability and lack of realism in many educational programs has managed to exclude a large portion of the adult gay population as well as the adult population in general. Many classrooms and programs, both mandatory and voluntary still leave something to be desired. It seems that it’s just hard to spread the word to a crowd of people that are afraid of change and have trouble relating to something they have never imagined facing. The dialogue is at times too technical and pragmatic and also seems to rely heavily on platitudes and induced fear to get people to assume responsibility and reduce their risk of both transmission and infection. Misconceptions of treatment and prognosis have also turned people away from getting tested and treated. As any healthcare professional will tell you, an ounce of prevention is worth a thousand pounds of treatment. Science will move forward in its efforts to treat and cure HIV, AIDS and the like, but it will be almost meaningless to the crowds of potential victims of sexually transmitted disease unless people stop the spread of the disease by making very small yet monumentally important and powerful changes to the way we behave intimately and sexually. So the Joker and Penguin are loose in Gotham City and the bat signal is high in the sky waiting for a hero to step forward and take control of the chaos… Enter the new revolutionary young and mature adult education program. Cleverly titled, “Use Me” makes some bold and exciting promises to the local and state community and provides

another bright ray of hope in the fight for prevention, testing and treatment. I had the pleasure of sitting down With Sarice Greenstein, one of the programs coordinators and directors and talk with her about “Use Me” and its ambitious future in a city badly in need of a healthy dose of reality and hope. The “Use Me” program launches on Friday, April 20th during the WEBB Party here in San Antonio, Texas offering its services, help and education to the male gay community across the city and state. Unlike other programs, it endeavors to be a more practical approach to adult education and infection prevention, talking frankly and honestly with the world and providing information, help and advice that people can easily relate to and access from anywhere at any time. The program of course offers free testing for all individuals, has a team of counselors, educators and volunteers that are already quite eager to jump in head first and start making a difference in the community. With honest and realistic counseling services and a novel educational platform, people may be more inclined to ask the questions that rarely come up in a more clinical setting and get answers in both the language and terms they understand with no holds barred and everything up for discussion. “Use Me” also plans on reaching out to the young gay adult males in their mid to late teens as well, offering them a more graphic and helpful venue for the tough questions that they can’t always address with teachers, school counselors and parents. They have put together an aggressive plan to answer such questions and help encourage preventative behavior and regular free testing to get its patrons and audience off to a healthy start and stay that way.

looking to sign up for upcoming events, educational awareness activities, testing services, emergency care and of course ways you can help make HIV and STD’s another story of the past. Networking care provision, unconditional help, doctors, clinics and support, “Use Me” has the potential to reach thousands (and hopefully more) of people that have had trouble in the past with sexual health questions and concerns and coordinating a care program for those in need of advanced and progressive services. To get a first hand, up close and personal experience of a new program that offers such potential and ability to provide help where it’s needed most; visit “Use Me” as they launch their program at The WEBB Party on Friday April 20th in San Antonio. There will be games, contests and of course prizes and opportunities to learn more about helping this program and the community, as well as taking advantage of their premier services and support. For more information on The WEBB Party see the TWIT Fiesta Guide and The WEBB Party ad in this issue, or visit www. WEBBparty.com. TWIT Magazine is proud to help introduce this program to the public and applauds “Use Me”’s efforts to change the standards, raise the bar, and push the limits of awareness into a new era. Please Visit www.UseMeSA.com or visit them on Facebook at www.Facebook. com/UseMeSa for more information or call (210)749-8840 if you or someone you know is in need of testing, services, answers and hope.

Apart from over the phone help and assistance with live team members, their website will also serve as a great resource for gay males of any age Pg. 16

7UDFNV “Neva Eva Eva is the song I wanted to write but couldn’t,” admits Faith Michaels from her home in Key West. “While the lyrics for Fetish flowed easily from my heart to the paper, I had a really tough time finding my voice for the second single. I was literally paralyzed by the success of Fetish; fearful I couldn’t top it and that I might forever be thought of as a one trick pony.” Luckily, the Miami-based Rhythm Rehab boys came to her rescue. They approached Michael’s after her weekly performance at Key West’s Aqua Night Club, and presented her with Neva Eva Eva. “I knew right away that the song was the answer to my prayers,” says Michaels. Its tantalizing club beats would allow her to wear extravagant costumes, a must for the over-the-top performer.

NEVA LOSE FAITH Faith Michaels is a Find By Mark Gray

“We are all drag artists,” she says. “Some of us are pretending to be people we are not. Others are hyper-glamorizing their outer selves to match the fabulousness they feel inside. As long as we are queens, celebrating our personal greatness, and not drags, sucking joy from those around us, it’s all good,” she laughs. You said in a previous interview that Neva Eva Eva is a song that reminds fans to not take your kindness as weakness. What did you mean by that? When I released my first single, people would come up to me and congratulate me on my work. Someone asked me, in a rather snotty way: ‘why do you always say thank you and you’re welcome?’ I thought, ‘Why do you think you’re so above thank you and you’re welcome?’ Of course, I didn’t say it. I have manners.


Would you say that you embody that message? Well, I’ve got my tucker on, pads in, boobs in. I’m a man in a dress. What do you think?

Does today’s tough world demand that we be bold? We should always be bold and stand up for what we believe in, but it’s a fine line between being bold and acting like a bitch. What is the main message in Neva Eva Eva? We shouldn’t worry about what the neighbors think. You only get one life – live it!

How do you define yourself – are you a female impersonator, tranny, or drag queen? Female impersonator is the PC way of saying drag queen. I was doing a radio interview once and mentioned I was a drag queen. The interviewer said, ‘what, drag queen?! I thought you were a tranny!’ It’s important that people know the difference because that defines us on how we live our everyday life. I live my life as a boy and work as a girl. I am a drag queen. With the popularity of shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race, do you struggle with people trying to put you in a box? The world says I should be more like a boy. I’ve struggled my whole life with people trying to put me in a box. You should do this; you shouldn’t do that.’ Guess what? It’s my life. If I wasn’t living my life, my way, I wouldn’t be lucky enough to be sitting here being interviewed by you right now. Is the success of shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race good or bad for the tran community?

I don’t know the role it plays in the tranny community, but in the drag community, I feel it helps by leaps and bounds. It helps people understand what we do and why we do it. It’s a show with wigs, costumes, music, comedy, and impersonations. We are performers and you don’t have to be gay to love it. Straight people love the show and thank God for them. It takes two of them to make one of us. How do you distinguish yourself from the ladies featured on the reality TV? Well, I’m not on TV and I can’t sew. I suppose that’s how I distinguish myself from them. Is Florida a safe place for the tran community? Our motto in Key West is ‘One Human Family’. We accept people for who they are. Everyone with an open mind and heart are welcomed. Do you think the state will ever allow gay marriage? I would like to think sooner or later it will happen. The state recently overturned the LGBT adoption ban. That’s progress, isn’t it? What got the ban overturned? Someone woke up and realized gay parents can raise a child just as well as straight parents. Watch Judge Judy, more than half of those people should not be having kids. As a community, is it important that we fight for change to happen? We should always fight for what is fair and what we believe in. If we don’t stand up for ourselves, no one else will. What’s your message to people who try to steal our freedom and joy? Miss thing, I suggest you try living your own life, ‘cause mine is nice and nothing you do will change it! www.faithmichaels.com Pg. 30

The Texas-bred country boys in Randy Rogers Band have done a lot of work in the past ten years. Touring more than 200 days a year and opening for artists such as Willie Nelson, Gary Allan, Dierks Bentley and the Eagles, they’ve crossed the country many times over in search of their dream: to play in front of as many people as possible. Formed in New Braunfels, Texas more than a decade ago, the band has developed a large Texas fan base. After relentless touring, they were signed to Mercury Nashville. Their major label debut, Just A Matter Of Time, was released in 2006 and began their rise to national recognition. In 2008, they released a self-titled album which charted higher and in 2010 they put forth Burning The Day which reached

Number 2 on the Billboard Country charts and Number 8 on the Billboard 200 charts. Their last two albums have debuted at the top of the iTunes Country Charts. With all of their success, I just had to speak with them about their plans for the future. Recently, they played in front of a crowd of nearly 5,000 at the Nutty Brown Café in Dripping Springs, Tx and before they hit the stage I spoke with Rogers about what drives him, and where that drive is leading him. When asked whether he’s satisfied with their current level of success and comfortable to rest on their laurels, Rogers said “I don’t think I’ll ever be happy with any level of success. I’m just too ambitious and want to keep finding new fans.”

When asked about his thoughts towards some of those fans being gay or lesbian, he says “There are no stigmas in this band. We’re pretty much all over the map with our fan base.” He jokingly adds “The only thing we judge people on is whether they like country music or not.” When asked about their future, Rogers said “We’re gonna spend all of April recording our new album. In the past, we were scared to try new things, but we’re older and wiser now. And we’re excited to step out of our comfort zone for this new album.” I first heard about Randy Rogers Band from my friend Dee Dee. A lesbian who loves metal and rock of all varieties, I wasn’t exactly expecting her to be a source of recommendation for the next

best thing in country music. But Dee Dee is also one of the most genuine and honest people I know, so I knew I had to check them out. And when I heard them finally, I could see what she loved about them… the tender love songs about feeling alive with someone new; the crazy and fun beer soaked nights at your favorite bar down the street; an the vulnerable expressions of heartbreak when love didn’t turn out the way it should have. These are themes that transcend cultural norms, boundaries or stereotypes. Their songs represent one of the most wonderful things about music: That, while we all experience it in different ways, it can still touch each of us profoundly.

)LHVWD By Richard Munguia Hello TWIT readers. Yes it’s that time again. The time of year that all of San Antonio looks forward to…Fiesta! It’s a time when we eat and drink beyond normal. A time when the city lights up like Christmas, and people are friendlier to one another. I wish everyday could be Fiesta. Hopefully this guide will help you with your Fiesta decisions. I say just do it all. Fiesta only comes once a year. Fiesta Carnival April 18 thru April 29 The Carnival, which sets up in the Alamodome parking lot C, is a great way to kick off your Fiesta fun. This is definitely one of the best carnivals in the land. Ferris Wheel, Fun House Mirrors, Bumper Cars, and the chills you get from the Roller Coaster are worth visiting this oasis of fun and games. Also, don’t forget the wide assortment of food booths. Funnel cake anyone? The Carnival is a perennial favorite of Fiestagoers. Admission to the grounds is free. Free admission. San Antonio AIDS Foundation WEBB Party 950 East Grayson Street – Lambermont Estate April 20, 7:30pm-12:00am The Webb party has become San Antonio’s best alternative Fiesta event. It is the single largest fundraiser for the San Antonio AIDS Foundation. Restaurateurs and top caterers from some of San Antonio’s finest local restaurants gather to serve up some of the best tasting cuisine. Don’t worry, there is also a full open bar serving some of the most intoxicating cocktails. All this plus live entertainment and a silent auction have made this one of the top events to be seen at during the Fiesta Season. All the proceeds from the WEBB Party go directly into SAAF’s client services. ts. This is Party you want to be part of. Tickets for the WEBB Party cost $75 in advance and $90 at the door. All food, drink and entertainment are included. The Bonham Exchange will be host to the official after party. The Heat nightclub will be offering shuttle bus rides to and from the Webb Party. Fiesta Oyster Bake St. Mary’s University Campus April 20, 5:00pm-11:00pm April 21, 11:00am-11:00pm The St. Mary’s University Fiesta Oyster Bake is another staple in the long line of Fiesta activities. Oyster has grown into one of the most popular Fiesta celebrations. The Oyster Bake features more than 100,000 oysters, served raw, baked or fried. Another 60 food booths dish up savory favorites such as fajitas, sausage on a stick, egg rolls, hamburgers and my favorite chicken on a stick. The continuous music on five stages highlights the party. This year the Fiesta Oyster Bake will celebrate its 96th anniversary! The St. Mary’s University Alumni Association sponsors fiesta Oyster Bake. All proceeds fund student scholarships and university and alumni programs. Admission: $18 in advance, $20 at the gate, $30 2-day advance ticket. Children 12 and under are free! Pg. 34

Texas Cavaliers River Parade April 23, 7:00pm–9:30pm San Antonio River Walk “Rocking on the River,” is the theme for this years river parade and promises an evening of family fun with live music, celebrities and lights. Over 40 festively decorated floats sponsored by local community organizations and military installations drift down the San Antonio River. Tens of thousands of spectators will be partying up and down the river to the accompaniment of singers, musicians and live bands. King Antonio XC reigns over the evening’s festivities and gives a Fiesta-sized welcome to the enthusiastic spectators along the winding route. Admission: $12-$22. Night In Old San Antonio April 24 thru April27 5:30pm-10:30pm La Villita Each year the historic La Villita, located downtown has become center stage to over 80,000 visitors as they gather to celebrate the city’s unique heritage at an event know as A Night in Old San Antonio. With over 240 elaborately decorated delicious food booth and thirst quenching drink booths. Make sure you try the chicken on a stick – pure heaven. NIOSA also has more than a dozen nonstop entertainment stages that represent the diverse cultures and customs of the city in 15 heritage-themed areas. NIOSA is the largest historic preservation festival in the nation. It supports the community through the preservation, education and research programs of the San Antonio Conservation Society. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the gate, $2 for children 6 to 12, $1.50 in advance. Cornyation April 24 thru April 29 8:00pm-10:00pm Charline McCombs Empire Theatre Cornyation first came to light in1964, when it was staged at the Arneson River Theatre as part of “A Night in Old San Antonio”. Its cheeky, bold pokes at politics and prominent and not-so-prominent world events led to its demise as part of NIOSA. But fortunately in 1982 a group of local artists and designers revived the celebration, and it has grown to be a major part of Fiesta. This year King Anchovy presides over the festivities surrounding the duchesses, queens, vice empress and empress of the 2012 court’s bows. The allvolunteer crew of more than 150 donates 100 percent of the box office receipts to charity. Cocktails and refreshments are available and the show is recommended for adults only. The doors usually open one hour before show time. All seats reserved. This year the Cornyation sold out it in 6 minutes! Battle Of Flowers Parade April 27, 12:45pm-4:00pm The first Battle of Flowers® Parade took place in 1891 to honor the heroes of the Alamo and to commemorate the Battle of San Jacinto, April 21, 1836, where Texas won its independence from Mexico. Now that we got that out of the way! The parade was the first major celebratory event to take place on Alamo Plaza. It is sponsored by the Battle of Flowers® Association, a nonprofit and civic women’s organization chartered in 1914 to celebrate Texas history. Remembering the heroes of the Alamo April 20, 2012

has remained the focus of the parade The theme of this year’s Parade is “Battle of Flowers …Where Fiesta Began!,” R.O.T.C. units march in a Vanguard ahead of the parade and delight spectators with precision drills. It’s really something to see. The parade arrives with an explosion of bright luminous color and brightly colored flying flags that announce the festivities to come. Meticulously designed floats carrying costumed Fiesta royalty are interspersed with flower-bedecked antique cars and carriages. The music of military and high school bands keep the parade in rhythm. One of the best and largest parades in the country maybe even the world. Fiesta Block Party April 27 & 28 On the 27th latin fusion group Mainstream will be performing outside HEAT nightclub and inside the club DJ Lydia Prim from Atlanta, GA will be spinning the latest hits from 10pm till 3am.

Children can enjoy rides and games in the Kids’ Kingdom. Part of the proceeds from this event provide educational scholarships for inner-city students. Admission: $10 for adults. Children 12 and under free. Fiesta Flambeau Parade Downtown Parade April 28, 7:45pm-11:00pm The theme for the 2012 parade is “Saturday Night at the Movies.” This parade is the largest illuminated night parade in the nation.

The Fiesta Flambeau® Parade will starts at 7 p.m. with the ROTC and civilian patriotic organizations that will perform precise drills along the 2.6-mile parade route through downtown San Antonio. The main parade begins right around 7:45 p.m. give or take a few minutes. The parade is one of the largest in the U.S., with an estimated 600,000 spectators along the streets of San Antonio and another 1.5 million in the television viewing audience. The University of Texas Longhorn Band is the band that traditionally leads the parade every year. The parade will also feature precision marching units, outof-state bands, equestrian and musical groups, and many other surprises that will entertain and create a memorable experience for everyone.

$SULO.HOO\&ODUNVRQ $SULO$O3DFLQR $SULO&DURO%XUQHWW

Aries March 21 April 19 You are clever and leave no stone unturned while pursing your objectives, particularly concerning love. Your observations are instant and rarely leave you doubting. You have an uncanny ability to quickly size up situations, especially about material circumstances. But your gift lacks accuracy when matters turn to emotional evaluations. Take it slower and develop trust in human nature. You miss a whole bunch when you second guess.

Cancer June 21 July 22

Taurus April 20 May 20

Leo July 23 August 22

You prefer a partner who’s a high spirited live life by the moment type, rather than one who has a steady as it goes ready made game plan. When a lover predetermines all the shots, you flee. You admire independence and adventure. Partners understand that they can call on you for strength in times of need, because you’re willing to go that extra mile. You relate especially to open minded people who are not preoccupied with material or physical things.

You have an intuitive understanding of what makes others tick, for you the emotional nature of any situations must be analyzed first and logically. Similarly, you need a romantic partner who talks candidly and kindly from the heart, treats others as equals, and confides in you. Even if your lover isn’t successful, your understanding nature accepts anyone who is sincere, and has realistic hopes and dreams.

Gemini May 21 June 20 You’re not a real serious type but are emotionally stable and cautious before committing to another. Never rash, you enter what is hoped to be relationship only after much thought, preferring to build momentum slowly but surely. You are tolerant with others quirks and history, but are likely to chafe at the bit when loved ones don’t share your outlook. Don’t be defensive; most people are willing to meet you halfway if you give them the chance.

April 20, 2012

Your tendency to change your mind on a whim makes you come off as flighty, even though your primary intention is to be straightforward about your feelings. A lover who accepts your habits and desires, and leaves you well enough alone suits you best. Having clearly defined roles and responsibilities is essential for your happy relationships. Be exacting and discreet, not frivolous or trivial.

Virgo August 23 September 22 Your concepts about love are more practical than fanciful. You’re optimistic and positive about your romance, but don’t take risks. You know that a union of convenience seldom lasts and stifles both of you, so you usually stop before it could injure you. You don’t require a lot of social activity; you simply want your lover available and constant. Your uncanny hunches perceive dishonesty through almost any disguise.

Libra September 23 October 22

Capricorn December 22 January 19

Optimistic and romantic but never quite realistic, you have dreamy concepts about relationships, are always on the go and prefer unplanned quality time rather than the organized or scheduled. Once boredom sets into a union, you’re out the door. Ever restless, you’ll try almost anything once or twice in your constant search of The Perfect Lover. A free spirited, easy going partner works best for you.

You’re not rugged or romantic, and criticism makes you flee. You don’t second guess others, and take things as they come, but grow quickly comfortable with unpredictability. You proclaim your desires perfectly clearly, most times in writing so that your lover can’t presume. It’s easy for you to get caught up in a lover’s trivia and untruths. Stop it, right now!

Aquarius January 20 February 18 Scorpio October 23 November 21 You lavish affection on your lover graciously and often, which may startle or overwhelm someone not used to it. You bond with your partners immediately and intuitively, and figure out the pluses and minuses of the relationship potential in record speed. However, overdoing and overstating matters can be a problem for you because you tend to act before thinking. Even though you’re inclined to be a bit cranky, after you settle into a commitment you’re a model of steadfast devotion.

You’re a bit determined, and sagacious, always expecting a lot from a partner and the same in return. Although ambitious, you are also understanding and encouraging with others, willing to go that extra mile for the sake of love, and maintain peaceful relations. Intelligent and fairly intuitive, you prefer lovers who are street smart, social and provide mental stimulation. You are not inclined to sit alone waiting for the phone to ring; you’re open minded and always ready to try something or someplace new.

Pisces February 19 March 20 Sagittarius November 22 December 21 Although a child at heart, you respond best to mature, down to earth lovers. You have no time for superficial people, preferring those whose lives have purpose and direction. Your way with lovers is charming and delightfully real, with the emphasis on the word real. You roll with the punches and rarely hold a grudge for long. Communication and compassion rank high in regard to what makes for a good partner.

Pg. 38

You’re humorous, open and candid about your feelings, seldom holding back opinions to your lover. You need a partner who has both feet on the ground, a trustworthy and cozy complement whose advice you can listen to. You have a compulsive sort of generosity, as a result you may heap too much affection upon your lover which may smother instead of nourish. Learn to pace yourself. Don’t allow your deep emotions to make you lazy or to take a lover for granted.
