ARIES (March 21-April 19): Money matters will be stressful. Don't let anyone push you to make a decision that could end up being costly. Take your time, and refuse to reveal your thoughts. Honesty is important, but you must also avoid controversy in order to bypass obstacles.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Think outside the box. Look at the possibilities, and consider a partnership that offers equality. Don't feel like you have to alter your lifestyle or your beliefs. Now is the time to lead, not follow. An intimate encounter will ease your stress.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't look at the negative occurrences in your life. For every door that closes, another will open. Focus on how you can drum up greater opportunities to turn what you have to offer into a marketable commodity. Put fears aside, and proceed with confidence.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Network, socialize, and share your ideas with people who contribute as much as you. Making basic changes to your image or the way you think will be beneficial and will help you determine how to use your experience and skills to the maximum.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A day trip or a new experience will stimulate your mind. Dealing with foreigners or taking part in a community event will lead to a change of heart. Avoid domestic disputes. Arguing won't solve anything. Overspending will cause family stress.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Communication will bring about opportunities to expand your interests and your friendships. Someone may misinterpret your intentions, leading to a jealous or competitive reaction. Love is highlighted, and a relationship that is important to you should be nurtured.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Revisit what you've left undone personally, financially or legally. Tie up loose ends before you face criticism. Taking care of any debt that is hanging over your head or collecting what's owed to you will ease your stress.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take control of the situation before someone else does. Open up about how you feel and what you want to see happen. If someone disagrees, consider whether the person is a hindrance or an asset. Apply a little pressure to get your way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Secrets may be revealed, causing a turn of events that will leave you responsible for making an important decision. Make yourself scarce until you have a better handle on the situation and you feel confident about making the necessary changes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Call the shots. Your evaluations will be well-received, putting you in an ideal position to make the changes you feel will benefit everyone concerned. Don't let someone from your past disrupt your life or your choices. Respect your loved ones.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't venture too far off the beaten track. You'll face criticism and opposition if you are too vocal or if you get involved in groups or organizations that have a different objective than you. Avoid overindulgence, and don't take on too much.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can make a good financial move if you consolidate or set a new budget. Personal, financial and business contracts will bring positive opportunities. Love is in the stars, and joining forces with someone will help cut your overhead.





What I did for Navy Day:

• Ate an entire can of Navy beans. Burped loud enough that I shook a filling loose.

• Thought about dressing like a slutty sailor for Halloween but decided to dress as a National Guardsman. Only because they're "Always Ready, Always There," and that's pretty slutty.

• Called my grandpa and listened to his Navy stories for seven-hours straight.

• Heard the Navy stories my grandpa wouldn't tell me when I was little.

• Seriously considered joining the Navy.

• Went to the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center to learn how to swim. Didn't make it past Tropical Smoothie.

• Listened to the Village People's "In the Navy." Was not inspired.

• Listened to the Village People's "Sex Over the Phone." Was inspired. Twice.

• Played Battleship. With myself.

• Went back to the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center to learn how to swim. Ended up in the hot tub.

• Wore white after Labor Day. After getting out of the hot tub. Oops?

• Ran around Mayflower yelling, "Land, ho." I got it half-right several times.

• Watched Titanic. Mostly because my grandpa won't let me borrow his collection of Navy movies.

• Stared at the U.S. Naval Jack for 10 minutes trying to figure out what the hell it means. (Seriously, what the hell does a rattlesnake have to do with the ocean?)

• Looked at pictures of my fifth-grade state parade float of Maryland.

• Wondered why I didn't tell my mom to stop cutting my bangs sooner.

Trisha Spence wishes you and your gramps a happy Navy Day.
