ARIES (March 21-April 19): Excitement will unfold, and good wishes and greater prosperity are apparent through winnings, settlements, contracts or gifts. Do what you can to help others, and the rewards will be high and emotionally touching. Change will bring love and success.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't let uncertainty win when it comes to your status or position. Keep things in perspective, and don't overanalyze the situation you are in or you will overreact, causing more harm than good. Sit tight; go with the flow.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take pride in your home, family, friends, and life. Take a creative approach to making the most of what you've got, and you will outshine anyone who tries to compete with you. A change of heart will benefit you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Change can make the difference in the outcome of something you are working toward. Your willingness to try new things will show your adaptability and eagerness to fit into the plans of those with whom, or for whom, you work. Versatility will help you professionally.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your plans simple. You can have fun and impress someone you are interested in by being imaginative and frugal. Overdoing, overreacting, and being emotionally indulgent will work against you. A change of scenery will do you good and lead to new friendships.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep your emotions out of the equation when dealing with friends, relatives, and neighbors. Too much of anything will turn sour. Keep an open mind, but at the same time maintain a practical perspective about what's going on around you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emphasize home, family, and creativity. A change in the way you do things or live your life will bring about professional alterations that better suit you. Don't let the past or the demands of others stand in the way of your plans.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Communication may be a problem for you if you aren't mindful of what you say. Someone is likely to end up with hurt feelings. Concentrate on protecting partnerships and you will avoid a multitude of mishaps, disagreements, and a loss of reputation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't let the past haunt you. Deal with any emotional connections that are pulling you backward so you can get on with your life. A move, or even adjusting the way you think or deal with such matters, will help.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Consistency will play a role in how things turn out. Don't make an impulsive move. A deal may entice you, but without all the facts and figures in place, it will be best if you take a pass. Work on a sure thing, not a gamble.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotions will be difficult to contain, and arguments will be hard to avoid. Focus on what you can learn from the situation or experience. Love is in the stars, but uncertainty will prevail. Don't make promises you can't keep.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your best efforts will pay off. Avoid emotional manipulation that will take your mind off what needs to be done. Separate your personal and business affairs. Involvement in groups that put stipulations on your beliefs must be avoided.





REAL Facts that didn't make the Snapple Caps:

• The dot over the letter "i" is called a tittle. (Anyone who laughed at that is either severely immature or thinks anything I say is funny. And if it's the latter — I love you, too.)

• Humans blink more than 10 million times a year. (Unless you're Nancy Pelosi, who blinks three times more than normal people. Either she has the driest eyes ever, or she's always just seconds away from nodding off.)

• The average person laughs 13 times a day. (But you, my loyal Ledge reader, hopefully laugh 13 times every time you read a Ledge. If you get depressed on weekends, just call me up and I'll crack a few jokes for you. I'm cool like that.)

• A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down in the glass continuously. (And if you think that's cool now, just imagine how amazing it would be after a glass of champagne … or four. I know what I'm doing this weekend.)

• A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second. (So when I say I'll be there in a jiffy … I'm only off by a factor of somewhere between 10 and 100 … million.)

• A 2x4 is really 1.5 inches by 3.5 inches. (Must be a guy thing. Like when guy says he's 6 feet tall, it really means he's probably closer to 5-10.)

• A group of unicorns is called a "blessing." (But on whose authority? From now on, a pregnant unicorn will be called a "readytoPOPcorn," according to ME.)

Carly Correll is feeling overly optimistic today. Maybe it's all the Halloween candy.
