ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take action, respond quickly, and don't let anyone bully you into something that doesn't sit right with you. An emotional issue must not be allowed to hinder a decision you need to make.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take a close look at what's being offered. Before you make an agreement, make sure there isn't something that needs changing. Someone will try to mislead you with charm and fast talk. Stay on top of your game.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You'll be charged up and ready to go. Set your target, and make your move. Your fast-paced, aggressive action will give you the upper hand when it comes to getting your way. A creative idea will be successful.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Financial discussions will pay off in terms of what you can earn, or invest in a project that catches your interest. Taking care of money matters will allow you greater freedom to make decisions that need to be addressed on the spot. Make your move.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Address the changes that need to be taken care of at home. Redecorate, or make your surroundings user-friendly. Interacting with progressive and productive individuals will aid you in advancing, as well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may feel like throwing your weight around verbally, but it isn't likely to unfold the way you anticipate. Arguments are apparent if you are abrupt or controlling. Rethink and reconsider. Focus more on having fun.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Talks will pay off if dealing with friends, neighbors, or relatives. However, problems at home will prevail if you don't compromise. Concentrate on expanding a creative idea or working on a self-improvement project that will bring you greater confidence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There is plenty to be hopeful about, but first you must believe in yourself and your skills. Broaden your awareness, and the possibilities will be endless. Sudden and unexpected change will put you in a prime position.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your fiery attitude will bring about changes that will not be that easy to control. Someone from your past will cause problems for you personally or professionally. Don't take chances, but listen carefully.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't jump to conclusions; staying calm and letting others react will position you better. There is money to be made if you readdress and update old ideas or projects. Embrace change, and opportunities will arise.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You must keep a secret if you want to avoid a costly problem. You need to make a decision so you aren't accused of standing in the way of progress. It's in your best interest to take part in what's going on around you instead of ignoring the inevitable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Avoid making promises or signing up for something that is probably a waste of time. Be creative with your finances, and you will be able to come up with a plan that will increase your earning power and lower your overhead.





Types of pets, and what to expect when you buy one:

• Dog: You'll receive a faith- ful companion at the expense of having every single worldly possession destroyed.

• Cat: You'll receive a finicky companion that will sometimes show you overwhelming, smothering affection and other times act like it never loved you to begin with. Hence, they're the best preparation for children.

• Fish: You'll receive a pet that takes roughly the same amount of time to care for as a fern, but is half as entertaining to sit and watch.

• Turtle: You'll receive a pet that is cute at first, then rapid- ly grows to be a smelly hassle. (And BEWARE: Very few of them know any martial arts.)

• Hermit crab: You'll receive a pet rivaled only by a fish in terms of entertainment factor. Also: they can pinch you! Neat!

• Salamander: You'll receive a pet that is incredibly slimy and not "holder-friendly." They also need to stay hydrated or they die and shrivel up like raisins, only they're not as tasty.

• Boa constrictor: You'll receive a pet that needs to be handled regularly or else it gets "angsty." Oh, fun: Getting crushed to death by a giant reptile while Linkin Park plays in the background.

• Ferret: You'll receive a maniacal little creature that is actually a diabolical odor factory. Here's a fun game: Find a friend who owns a ferret, and see how long that person can go without using the terms "musk" or "anal glands."

• Monkey: You'll receive a pet with the appetite and digestive track of five men, coupled with the throwing ability of Nolan Ryan. Just ... don't.
