ARIES (March 21-April 19): React practically rather than emotionally, or you will face a situation that will require far more attention than you anticipate. Sharing your plans will lead to meddling and a slowdown. Take on responsibilities on your own to avoid interference.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Focus on finishing what you start. Do your best to get along with colleagues and authority figures. Appeal from the heart, and you will be given extra privileges. Good fortune will develop through networking or socializing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Lend a helping hand, but don’t allow anyone to take advantage of you. Slow down and think about consequences before you do or say anything that will affect others. Impulsive or willful action will result in a loss that will affect your reputation and finances.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can accomplish much as a team player. Interact with people from different backgrounds, and you will come up with a plan that will benefit everyone. Offering assistance will lead to long-term partnerships and good fortune. Love is in the stars.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expect to face opposition. A partner will question your motives and strategy. Share your thoughts openly, and deal with any negative response upfront. Partners may not agree with you, but once it’s revealed why, you will be given greater leeway.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get serious about your future by checking out what you have accumulated and what you can discard for a profit. Improve your reputation by being responsible in your actions. Strive to be at your best mentally, physically, emotionally, and financially.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The emphasis should be on partnerships. Whether it’s business or pleasure, coming to terms with what pleases everyone, including you, should be your goal, leading to greater collaboration in the future. Love should not be ignored.





How to deal with Iowa’s loss to ISU:

• Cry about it. (It’s all right to cry; crying gets the sad out of you.)

• Find consolation knowing that our awesome women’s basketball and gymnastics teams still put the heavily coveted Iowa Corn Growers Cy-Hawk Series Trophy is still well within our reach. (We’re only down 2-5.)

• Drink. Heavily. Hell, you were going to anyway; at least now you have a better reason.

• Remember that it’s OK not to win single every game. Teams that win every game get saddled with unfair descriptors like “fantastic,” “phenomenal,” or even “2011 NCAA Football Champions.” And, honestly, who needs that kind of pressure?

• No, seriously: It’s totally okay to lose. Remember Rocky? He lost the big fight at the end, and that movie was great. (I wanted to use a football movie for comparison here instead, but football movies where the team loses the big game all invariably suck.)

• Practice a little escapism, and go see that new Matte Damon/Kate Winslet movie. What’s it called? Oh, that’s right: I Cannot Freakin’ Believe We Freakin’ Lost to the Freakin’ Cyclones This Freakin’ Weekend — For Freak’s Sake.

• Realize that it’s just a football game. In the grand scheme of things, it a meaningless statistic in a meaningless column in a meaningless sport that serves only to distract us from our own shared and meaningless existence. (There, now, don’t you feel better?)

• Have a good laugh about it. Lord knows the Cyclone fans already are.

Andrew R. Juhl doesn’t consider the game a loss so much as he does a “nonwin.”
