ARIES (March 21-April 19): Professional events will lead to an adventure and a new best friend. Travel or a change of scenery will motivate you to take on more responsibility and to strive for greater professional freedom.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Budgeting should be your prime objective. Unexpected bills will add to your anxiety if you've been frivolous. Protect your assets, and you will maintain security and eliminate stress.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep everything out in the open professionally. You are facing a lot of changes, but handled properly, you will be able to reach your goals and come out in front emotionally, mentally, and financially. A romantic promise can be made.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You'll be able to make career moves that will lead to professional advancement and more money. But before you trade in one position for another, make sure your new contract is signed and sealed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your high energy and dynamite personality will need an outlet. Join a group that allows you to use your talents fully and challenges you to be your best. Physical activities will result in new friendships.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put as much into your financial and domestic situation as possible. A residential move or an investment will help to clear debt or raise your assets. Your ideas may not fit what others want you to do, but follow your heart and your own needs.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You're gifted when it comes to seeing both sides of a situation, making you a perfect mediator for a friend or family member. Keep in mind that if you are too pushy, you will make an enemy.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You'll be the center of attention at social or business events. Don't hesitate to pursue people from your past who may be able to help you. Your competitive nature and refusal to admit defeat will lead you to success.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Trying to skirt issues will backfire. Emotional deception must be cleared up in order to regain the social freedom to come and go as you please. It's time for new beginnings.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Consider starting a small home business. A unique way to invest your money will be presented, but if it means forming a partnership, take a pass. Anger and upset will result.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get involved with individuals or activities that offer you an intellectual or physical challenge. Someone from your past or whom you've known a long time will influence a decision you need to make.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't confront anyone or any situation with the potential to backfire, causing you loss or injury. You won't get much sympathy from friends or family if you make a foolish mistake. A change of attitude may be in order.





Pros and Cons of Marathon Training:

• PRO: I get to eat up to four meals and three snacks every day—without needing to apply to be on the "Biggest Loser."

• CON: My ponytail continually falls out, and my hair keeps giving me whiplash.

• PRO: Protein bars finally taste good to me. (After running that far, almost anything tastes good to me.)

• CON: Anything over six miles leaves way too much time to think.

• PRO: Xanax and a 12-mile run? Sensational. (Talk about a "runner's high.")

• CON: Having to continually reassure Mom I'm not a drug addict.

• CON: No more casual drinks on Friday nights. Dehydrated and hungover bodies don't like running on Saturday mornings.

• CON: Buh-bye toenails and pretty polish.

• PRO: Finally getting to use my über-cute *Toy Story* Band-Aids.

• PRO: I can finally outrun the police.

• CON: Apparently still can't out-drive them, though.

• CON: Seeing people out starting their run when I'm already on mile 10 and look disgusting. They've great form, but by then I look (and sound) like a jogging cavewoman.

• PRO: Training is cheaper than therapy.

• PRO: Massages after long runs.

• SUPERPRO: Being able to U-bill my massages. (Thanks Mom & Dad, and please don't disown me when you find out.)

• PRO: Passing by the same adorable man every weekend who shouts "You go girl, get it." He sees my pain and raises me up so I can run on mountains, so I can run on stormy seas. I call him Josh.
