ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ride out any controversy or negativity. Size up your situation without making a commitment. This is a great time to prove how valuable you are, but it’s not the time to negotiate or to make demands.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can’t appease everyone. Offer what you know you can do well and successfully. You will be inclined to underestimate your current situation, so it’s very important not to make promises or to think in too broad a spectrum.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ve got more going for you than you realize. Don’t look back or second-guess yourself. Put your plans into motion, and strive for perfection and completion. You have room to grow and advance, and that’s precisely what your aim should be.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Avoid anyone who wants too much or is putting pressure on you. You will learn a valuable lesson about lifestyle that will help you change your ways, correct poor habits, and implement a positive set of rules.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you aren’t happy with where you are, consider what you can learn or what skills you can pick up to help you get to where you want to be. Discuss your plans with someone you respect. You can create a much more stable environment for yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You need to play a little harder and strive for a bit more enjoyment in your life. Get involved in activities that stimulate you mentally or physically, and you will feel much better about attacking any professional goals.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Separate yourself from the bullies and people trying to push you aside or make you feel or look bad. Get involved in groups that will see your potential and allow you to take things in a new direction.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some of the people you have always been able to count on in the past will disappoint you. This time around, voice your opinion loud and clear. You will feel better and will stand a better chance of winning a battle that you have no choice but to fight.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone close to you will not agree with your decisions. A change in the way you live and do things is expected, and although you won’t like all the results, you will be in a better place and position.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have trouble making up your mind, and when you do, you are likely to discover you made a poor choice. Don’t be afraid to slow down and hold off on any decision-making for the time being. Spend less, offer less, and do less.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let anyone discourage you. There are lots of doors opening, and you have the energy, desire, and ability to pursue the opportunities. Your discipline will enable you to reach goals you normally would never consider.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will have difficulty making decisions. Don’t let anyone put pressure on you. It may cost you a deal or a partnership initially, but in hindsight, you will realize it is the wrong time to make a move that is binding.





Things I Learned Raising a Boy Scout:

• Today is National Boy Scout Day, yet all the Boy Scouts are still expected to go to school. Which is, like, totally unfair.

• If there’s not a badge for it, then it’s not worth doing. There is apparently no badge for taking out the trash, doing the dishes, or cleaning your room.

• Telling your scout that there’s a badge for doing something, just to get him to do it, only works a couple times. Eventually, he will catch on that there’s no such thing as a “Get Dad a Diet Coke from the Fridge” badge.

• Scouting for Food is NOT just about getting rid of all the gross stuff in the pantry. It’s also about the pizza party afterwards.

• You cannot trade a Pinewood Derby trophy for Girl Scout Cookies.

• Boy Scout cookies taste terrible.

• You have to be careful about walking old ladies across the street. They might not actually want to be helped across the street at that moment, and dragging them against their will is unadvised. Charges were filed.

• The overnight camping trips exist purely as an excuse to partake in endless shenanigans. And that’s just us chaperones.

• You have to be really careful about whom the designated parent leader is, or every single meeting turns into a pitch for Amway.

• You can always get your scout to do something by threatening to pull out the pictures from the Webelos/Brownie mixer they attended in fourth grade.
