ARIES (March 21-April 19): When it comes to business, practicality will be essential. In matters of love, trying something new and exciting will outweigh being sensible. Separate your personal and professional life, and make the most of both. Your charm will help you get your way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your emotions will be difficult to control and can lead to unsightly discord if you are too forthright. A short trip will help you see things more clearly and provide a true picture of someone you may have misjudged.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It will be best to be quiet about your financial situation. Keep things playful and fun, and you will enhance a relationship with someone special. A skill you have can be diversified, allowing you to offer a service that will bring in extra cash.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can drum up interest in something you feel is important or that can help you reach a personal or professional goal you are working toward. Worthwhile returns will come with hard work and dedication. Ask, and you shall receive.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): So much depends on how you treat others. If you are too overbearing, you will face setbacks, but if you are charming and are willing to pitch in and do your share, you will set a standard that everyone involved will strive to reach.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stick to what you know, and learn from those who have the experience you lack. Avoid any trouble at home or with people who demand too much of you. Network, interact with superiors, and don't let personal matters hold you back.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You'll get all the help you need if you ask for it. Someone you fancy will have something to offer that can help you raise your income. A pleasure trip will open up a window of opportunity that can influence your future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Choose wisely. You don't want to upset someone who can cause you grief at home or at work. A last-minute change of plans must not disrupt what needs to be done. Finish up before you take off. A job opportunity looks inviting.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll learn through observation. Don't initiate change. Let someone else be at the helm for once, while you sit back and watch the activities of others. Don't give in to pressure. It's better to be safe than sorry.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can improve your personal financial situation if you assess and adjust your investments. Your whole family can benefit from the alterations you make. An opportunity to get ahead must not be ignored. Change is apparent.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look at the possibilities, and make a move that will improve your personal status or professional position. Ask for favors, and use your knowledge to entice people of quality to take part in your plan. A little romance will enhance your chances.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Slow down and keep a watchful eye. You will be criticized if you barrel ahead without giving any thought to what others do. Recalling what has happened in the past will save you from making the same mistake over again.





Monopoly as Life:

• Taxes suck.

• Bankers always seem preoccupied, make constant mistakes that are never in your favor, and always have large amounts of money they can't explain.

• If you're running short on funds, check the couch cushions.

• As soon as you turn 21, it's pretty much a drinking game.

• Children always expect a free ride when it's time to pay, and they will try to weasel out of punishments whenever they can. It's best to teach them early: The rules are the rules, they're nobody special, and your Water Works for their Boardwalk is totally a fair trade.

• The Simpsons did it.

• If you have the money, you can just buy your way out of jail.

• The thimble: children have no idea what it is or what it's used for.

• Depending on who's in the room, sexual favors can be just as good as cash.

• Vermont and Connecticut: perpetually confused for one another, but nobody really seems to care.

• Even the stupidest people can be really good at math when money is involved.

• Pretty much everyone thinks the set of rules they play by is the only "right way" to play. The ensuing arguments inevitably lead to violence.

• Sometimes, free parking makes all the difference.

• It's all pretty exciting when you start, but about halfway through you'd rather just have a beer and a nap.
