ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ignore the people giving you a hard time, and focus on those who share your concerns and interests. A pleasure trip or visiting someone who lifts your spirits will help you make an important professional change.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Connecting with old friends will bring back a lot of memories but can also lead to habits that were hard to break. Don’t fall into a pattern that will set you back. Position yourself for success.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll be eager to make changes, but before you do, consider the cost involved. Be smart about your budget and personal expenses. Don’t let someone you love cost you financially. Focus on long-term investments.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep everything out in the open so you aren’t blamed for being secretive or hiding information. Offer what you can, but don’t promise more than you can do. Set personal and professional boundaries. Practical applications will be your best bet.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Spread the word around regarding what your plans are for the future, and you will get a great response and the help you need. Love is in the stars, and whether you nurture your current relationship or are about to embark on a new romance, you will do well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Trying to hide something will make you look bad and will stand in the way of your advancement. Getting involved in after-hour business events will help you stay in touch with colleagues or clients. Change is good and can be lucrative.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Share your thoughts and ideas with people of like interests. You can get the backing you need from outsiders, but don’t expect the people you are most familiar with to understand what you are trying to accomplish.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will be able to clear up a problem that you have been forced to deal with for some time. It’s up to you to ask for what you want and to demand justice and fair play. A partnership will develop that can turn into a profitable endeavor. Don’t be shy; welcome change.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can turn your ideas and plans into a reality. Love, romance, and family are highlighted, and the things you do now to make your personal life better will bring about a stable future. You can develop an enhanced lifestyle that better suits your personality.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t hide the way you feel, or nothing will change. Be aggressive; go after what you want so you can move forward. A change at home will benefit you personally, emotionally, and financially. Strive to reach your goals.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Give whatever you pursue your all. You have everything to gain by being a participant. Don’t be afraid of change — it’s required in order to achieve your dreams, hopes, and wishes. Wasting time is the enemy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Steer clear of emotional matters that will bring you down. Get out and interact with people who enjoy the same pastimes and who will contribute, not hold you back. Avoid making changes at home that might be costly.

 

 

 

 


Things I Hear Myself Telling My Kids:

• We didn’t have all these fancy 3D games. We had an Atari 2600, and we liked it. Mainly ’cause it meant we didn’t have to play stupid Pong anymore.

• When we wanted to talk on the phone, we could only walk as far as the cord would let us. Our telephonic social lives were literally tethered to the beige wall in the foyer.

• If we wanted to listen to the whole album, we had to flip it over. The two-way tape player was revolutionary.

• Surround-sound was accomplished by spinning around in front of the TV.

• Our GPS was trying to keep the map folded open to your general location. Naviga- tion was the person too tired to drive reading the map and saying, “I think you need to take the blue road.”

• It used to be you didn’t know how special effects in the movies were achieved; now, you can just chalk it all up to “probably CGI” or “underwire.”

• Boom boxes were meant to be seen, as well as heard.

•When we were done watching a movie, we had to rewind it — or pay a fee.

• If the picture quality was bad on a VHS tape, you just adjusted the tracking. Yes, “tracking.” Don’t know what that is? Well, neither did we, but it didn’t keep us from adjusting it all the time.

• Making a mix-tape required owning the equiva- lent of a small studio, pur- chasing all the original albums, and saying goodbye to your weekend.

• The best cartoons could only be seen between the hours of 8 and 11 a.m. on Sat- urday mornings. Then, “Saved by the Bell” started eating that time slot, and America pretty much just kept going downhill.
