ARIES (March 21-April 19): Accept the inevitable. Avoid anyone bragging or trying to push you into something that doesn't suit your needs. Don't let a problem with someone else fester. Get things out in the open so you can move forward.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have to watch out for trick questions or being roped into doing something that will overextend you mentally, physically, or financially. Exercise and getting into a healthier lifestyle will lift your spirits and bring you greater confidence.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Think first, and follow up by taking action. Impulsiveness will hold you back, but a well thought-out plan will help you gain momentum and success. Don't allow an emotional relationship to stifle your plans.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ask for a favor, and you will be able to make changes at home and stick to a budget you can afford. A unique partnership can help you get ahead. Let your emotions manifest in a passionate display of feelings for someone special.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Easy does it. Make changes, but take baby steps to ensure that you don't go over budget. Closely guard your emotions and your bank card. Do whatever needs to be done without complaining, and rewards will be yours.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and about. A short trip or discussing plans with someone you like to spend time with will pay off. You can build a strong connection and find new ways to partner with people who share your interests.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put more emphasis on saving, not spending. The more you do to secure your future and stabilize your assets, the more freedom you will have to excel in the future. Avoid anyone trying to sell you a risky investment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Proceed with caution. Friends, relatives, and just about everyone you encounter will look to put blame elsewhere. Don't be the scapegoat. Protect your integrity, assets, and personal belongings. Creative projects are your best outlet.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't agree to do too much for nothing. You have to set a standard that will help you get ahead, not one that will allow you to be taken advantage of. Strive to offer a service that is in demand.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stay on top of your plans. Don't leave anything to chance, and avoid anyone who tries to infringe on your generosity. Your hard work will pay off, and you are the one who should benefit, not someone who is along for the ride.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Helping others can make you feel good, but if you are taken for granted, the loss will end up being emotionally costly. Stick to what you know and feel comfortable doing. Plan your strategy; stick to your plans.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put more thought into your plans for the future. A practical approach to an idea you have will help you raise the support you need to continue. Be sure that you follow all the rules and regulations, or you will face untimely obstacles.





The Heist:

• The Target: Find an establishment guaranteed to have a solid take. There's nothing more discouraging in all of heisting then trying to split two KFC buckets among three crew members.

• Recruit: Your team should be diverse in both skill and nationality. Every team needs (at the very least) a demolitions guy, a getaway dude, a really hot-chick love interest, a fingerman (two for the "Classy Stoner Gambit"), and a Judas who will betray the rest at some point.

• NOTE: the Judas will be easy to spot; he will be male, have 45-degree eyebrows, laugh maniacally, and possess subtly villainous name, such as "Sinestro" or "B. Trayus."

• Reconnaissance: Do lots, or you might find all-too-late that the KFC you had in mind is now an Arby's, and your hopes of purloined Double Downs have drowned in soggy sea of Beef 'n' Cheddars. (At least it's not Taco Bell. Oh, screw it; we strike at dawn.)

• The Job: Use walkie-talkies. Cell phones tend to roam in vaults, text messages arrive late, and we all know how unreliable Facebook IM is.

• NOTE: There will be no bouncy house/techno soundtrack to keep your blood pumping. Hum if you need to.

• The Haul: Keep your eyes on the Beef 'n' Cheddar prize. Don't waste time on straws or condiments; we have plenty back at the hideout. Ooooh, except for Arby's sauce. That stuff's awesome; get a bunch. And a few napkins. And a Jamocha shake.

• The Getaway: Make sure you're gassed-up and have shotgun decided before the heist. Keep Facebook status updates under 10 words.
