ARIES (March 21-April 19): Making your place suit your needs will help you in every aspect of your life. Look at your options and consider a joint venture. An opportunity will be presented that you cannot turn down.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You won't have patience with older or younger family members who make unnecessary expenditures. Set a budget, and make sure everyone dependent on you follows the rules. You can stabilize your finances, medical issues, or professional position with minor adjustments.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Join a group or organization, and you will make new friends. Don't overspend to make an impression. Concentrate on what you can give mentally, physically, and emotionally. Don't make financial choices based on a promise that has yet to be honored.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Show interest when communicating, but don't give away your secrets or problems with colleagues will develop. Protect your interests to avoid being copied or having someone take credit for your ideas. Don't let changes fluster you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Social, educational, and business events should be attended. Mix business with pleasure, and throw a little travel into the mix. Your fun-loving approach will be admired and will bring you a proposal you cannot resist.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A change of location will help get you in the swing of things and take on new adventures. Don't worry about family or friends who don't understand what you are doing. Follow your heart. Socialize with people who have similar pastimes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get involved in activities that will remove you from whatever is going on at home. Engage in conversations with outsiders who have a different perspective on how to go about making changes. Don't live in someone else's shadow.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You'll have to balance your time evenly between the things you want to do and the things you have to do for others. Emotional pushiness can be expected. A sudden disruption or change of plans will cause doubt and delays.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Avoid challenges you cannot win. Someone may be underhanded with you if you are vulnerable. Focus on home, family, and making changes that will brighten your day and enhance you. Love is on the rise.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A secret affair may be enticing, but the consequences will be devastating. Don't meddle or get drawn into other people's personal problems. Take care of your own problems; emotional confusion is apparent.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Use discretion when it comes to money matters. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty or insecure. Offering your time and physical help can be far more rewarding than donating cash. Self-improvement projects will boost your confidence.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You'll have to use your intuition when it comes to dealing with peers, your boss, or someone in a position of authority. If something doesn't sound right, don't follow the crowd. In time, you will be praised for your insight.





Earth Day Facts:

• According to Wikipedia, which is the only source for verification that anyone should every use for anything ever, Earth Day was started by "Sen. Gaylord Nelson." My follow-up research confirms that Nelson was indeed a U.S. senator, but I fail to find any evidence suggesting his asserted claim to the homosexual nobility.

• Woodsy Owl, a forest ranger-like cartoon strigiform that exhorted children to "Give a hoot, don't pollute" was the original mascot of Earth Day. His contemporary image has been updated to that of a T-shirt wearing, feathered cap sporting backpacker in thrift-store jeans. You can ask him about pollution, but he'd rather tell you about how good the music is he listens to. It's by bands you've probably never heard of, though. Hey, do you like PBR?

• One suggested way of celebrating Earth Day is to plant a tree (note: Arbor Day gets upset when you do this on Earth Day), sing or listen to Earth Day songs (which is like actually doing something good for the planet, but without any actual effort or positive result), or engage others in conversations about your environmental concerns (i.e., guilt-trip someone into using the recycling bin or buying some fluorescent light bulbs).

• Earth Day is a great time to take account of and realize how much bottled water you may drink. If you drink more than one bottled water each week, please consider switching to Nalgene bottle, instead. Because all that plastic is responsible for horrors such as toxic chemicals, landfill persistence, and much of Lady Gaga's wardrobe.
