ARIES (March 21-April 19): Respond only after you have thought about the consequences. Your emotions will tempt you to be abrupt and caustic. Look beyond what others are doing or saying, and concentrate on getting ahead personally, professionally and financially.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pull out every imaginable idea, plan, or goal, and revisit the possibilities. Short trips, serious discussions, and pouring your heart out to whomever you need on board are all in order. A personal issue will surface.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone lacking your vision may stifle your plans. Work closely with anyone who needs proof — coaxing with a few facts and figures thrown into the equation. Uncertainty regarding the help you get may lead to scaling down your initial start-up plans.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don't let your personal life stand in the way of what needs to be done. A partnership can work in your favor but only if you specify who will be responsible for what. You have more control over the outcome than you realize.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Kick back, and enjoy yourself. You need to show the people you work with your fun side. You'll be surprised how much easier it will be to get what you want professionally if you play as hard as you work.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone from your past may disrupt your home life. Review the consequences you'll face if you get involved in something that you ended a long time ago. Focus more on what you have, and consider if you want to hold on to it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Roll the dice, or play your hand. There may be a risk, but you don't really have a choice. It's better to make a move than to wait for someone to corner you or take advantage of you. Welcome an experienced point of view.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Cover all the bases. Change is good, but if you fear failure, you are likely to lose. Courage and confidence will be the key requirements if you want to progress. If it's worthwhile, it's worth working for.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be jumpy, but it's good to be on edge when you are trying to accomplish something big. Don't worry if someone backs out or changes plans midway. In the end, you will control more and get what you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emotions will be close to the surface and can cause you to make a mistake because of demands from friends, family, or your lover. Make whatever concessions you can, but don't compromise to a point that makes you want to walk away.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can try to talk your way out of something but a commitment is expected if you intend to move ahead with the support that's been offered. Love is in the stars, but you can no longer sit on the sidelines.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Anger is not the way to get what you want, but taking action and showing what you have to offer is. Avoid any sort of discrepancy. Socialize with peers and colleagues, and you will get your way.





Things that worried my parents when they visited last weekend:

• My entire 'pantry' consists of one pack of Ramen noodles, a bottle of Coca-Cola and three Kraft Singles.

• There is an unidentified substance growing on my shower curtain that has thus far proven resistant to every cleaning supply I've tried. And I'm pretty sure it growled at my mother when she saw it.

• Instead of putting on the freshman fifteen, I appear to have developed a chronic wasting disease. I look akin to a skeleton wearing a "goofy college student" costume.

• When my parents asked my roommate how I was to live with, he obviously hadn't fully memorized the statement I'd prepared.

• Some nicknames that my friends have given me and frequently call me that have no basis in reality and are too inappropriate to print in the Daily Iowan.

• When my parents bumped into my RA and introduced themselves as my parents. My RA just said "good luck" and walked away.

• My room's smell is unidentifiable. It has proven immune to febreeze, car air fresheners, leaving the windows open, and removing everything from the room and scrubbing it down with bleach.

• My schedule is empty except for weekends, where it says "have a good time, you deserve it."

• There is an inch layer of dust on everything in the room, and it looks like it hasn't been in use for ten years.

• I write for the Ledge.
