ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look over your financial papers. It's best to make decisions now regarding both money matters and your personal life. Keep things up to date, so you can forge into the future knowing you are prepared.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take your time mulling over what others propose or what's involved in bringing closure to a situation you face. An assumption will work against you. You must find out all the particulars before you speak freely.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your enthusiasm may portray you as vulnerable. Make sure you don't let anyone take advantage of your good nature or your ability to get things done. An idea you have will take off if you present it now.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by taking action. Don't worry about what others think or do. You can change the way you live and what you do. Don't be afraid to apply a little pressure if someone is not seeing things your way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Getting emotional about something you cannot change will hold you back. Look at all the other options and pick one. Get active — whether it's with friends, family, children, or a project that you find challenging.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You'll be torn between whom you want to spend time with and who needs your help. Don't get angry or annoyed, just get busy doing what needs to be done. The way someone views you will change because of the choices you make and how you handle your current situation.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Ignore what's going on in your personal life, and strive to be and do the best you can with regard to work, money, and getting ahead. If you are looking for work, be innovative in the way you set up your résumé or handle interviews. Change is looking positive.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have control, but you aren't using your clout or putting pressure on the right people. You can figure out what the best fit is for you and proceed with a passion. It's up to you to follow through.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Nothing will be as easy as you hoped. Not everyone is thinking the same way you are. You are likely to be disappointed by someone who puts a damper on what you are doing. Continue in your own direction.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There will be more options than you realize when it comes to work and money. Taking a unique approach to something that has been done in the past will bring you a winning position, changing the way others view you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There will be some emotional issues to deal with when it comes to your future and your ability to move forward. Talk to someone you trust, and you will see more clearly the possibilities that exist.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't be afraid to show how you feel. Your emotional response will tie in with a deal you've been trying to complete. A change at home will enable you to do more of the things you enjoy. Someone will disappoint you.





Iowa drivers and Iowa driving:

• Mopeds, tractors, cars, trucks, bicycles, semis, and motorcycles all on one road? This is scarier than all of the facial hair that I keep seeing in celebration of "No shave November."

• We only drive at two speeds: fast enough to make your grandmother cry and slow enough to put her to shame.

• What state in its right mind lets children start driv- ing at 14? Seriously, anyone who thinks it's cool to walk around the mall and hang out in the food court should not be allowed behind the wheel of anything except a bumper car.

• Only in Iowa will you see a boy riding his bicycle down a 45-degree hill without using his hands, talking on his cell. (If this boy would contact me and teach me how to multitask that well, I would be very appreciative.)

• We somehow fail to under- stand that it is OK to turn right on red. Sometimes, we even stop and look both ways before turning right on green.

• Only in Iowa is it considered a legitimate excuse to be "running late because [you're] stuck behind a tractor."

• We all sort of look forward to winter, because at least then, all the pot holes are filled and you won't have to have your tires realigned for the fourth time that year. (Not that I've had to do that ...)

• Iowa drivers DON'T use turn signals. Life's just more interesting that way.
