ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do what you can to improve your home and domestic life financially and emotionally. You'll face criticism if you are too busy pleasing outsiders instead of the ones who are always in your corner. Do something nice for the ones you love.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Short trips are highlighted. Engage in conversation that brings you knowledge about something you want to pursue. Getting the OK from people you love will be easy if you are straightforward about the details.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your desire for change may not make everyone close to you happy. Your best bet is to inch your way in the direction you want without making a big splash. Once you have things in order, you can share your plans and your success.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Share your feelings. Added responsibilities can be lifted if you are honest about what you can and are willing to do and what you are not. Don't be afraid to apply a little pressure if someone gives you a hard time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You need a change of pace and a change of scenery. Make plans that will allow you the freedom to interact with people who can contribute to some of your ideas and plans for the future. Love is highlighted during the evening hours.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be careful how you approach touchy topics when dealing with friends, relatives, or your lover. Kindness and compassion will help you get what you want; criticism will not. Expand your interests if it will help you share a special moment with someone.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Not everyone will be on your side. Be careful when sharing your ideas and plans, especially with colleagues or someone who can have an effect on your future. Allow a little time for something entertaining. It will lift your spirits.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Question anyone who is dubious. It's up to you to ferret out any information that you need to know before making a decision, especially if it has to do with your income. Someone from your past may be the ideal partner in your future.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Work behind the scenes. Finish your work before you reveal what you are trying to accomplish. It's better to surprise everyone than to fall short of the expectations you have raised in others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Getting along with others will be half the battle. Put your time and effort into building a strong and stable base at home emotionally, financially, and physically. Spend time with the people who really mean something to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Communication can resolve misunderstandings. Engage in heartfelt communication, and you will find out where you stand with people in your personal and professional world. Diplomacy and charm will help you win trust as well as favors.

Fat Girl Problems:

• The library food-cart worker knows your name and your "usual." California roll and a skinny latte? Yeah, they made that just for you.

• The only man's name you have on speed dial is Jimmy John's.

• You go to Hy-Vee on a Friday night and buy so much snack food that the clerk assumes you're having a study party. And this would be true, if by "study party" she meant "curled-up alone on the couch, chowing down on seven different kinds of cereal, and watching an entire season of 'Entourage.' "

• Like most girls, your apartment smells like cakes, cookies, and candies. Unlike most girls, it's not from scented candles, lotions, or other smelly girly things.

• You look at pictures of food during lectures. (Those moans escaping your lips during physics aren't because you're excited by the concept of torque.)

• You go to Hy-Vee for a RedBox and come out with two pints of ice cream, chocolate syrup, and maybe a RedBox.

• You're more loyal to restaurants than you are to your boyfriends. At least the restaurants always remember your birthday.

• If you're ever stranded, you could live at least a week off the food stashed in the bottom of your purse.

• Thanksgiving is your favorite holiday. Every year for Christmas, all you ask for is another Thanksgiving.
