GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Overt action will cause tension. Keep things simple if you want to ensure that you don't lose financially, contractually, or emotionally. Don't allow a colleague or peer to make your life miserable. Use your head, and plan your strategy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Favors will be granted if you use charm to get your way. Love is on the rise, and traveling, networking, and getting out with friends will lead to a romantic encounter. A job well done will bring you an unexpected bonus.





Supposedly Fun Things That I Will Never Do

• Bungee jumping: It's like flipping gravity the bird, and I'm not really into taunting forces of nature. Feel me, bro?

• Skydiving: See above. Plus, it probably makes birds shake their little heads in disbelief at human stupidity, and I can't bear the thought of avian disdain for our species.

• Scuba diving: "Hey, everybody, why don't we all go give up the one physical advantage we have over the sharks?" You guys go on ahead. I'll be over here, having another daiquiri and surviving.

• Cliff diving: Let's just save some time and ix-nay any form of iving-day outside the boudoir, shall we? Also, is it possible to die of a belly flop? An appearance on "1,000 Ways to Die" notwithstanding, I'll opt for a more mundane demise, thanks very kindly.

• Street luge: While the concept of a full-body scab is intriguing to me, am I willing to put myself in harm's way in the pursuit of medical knowledge? (I am not.)

• Rodeo: "Well, shoot. This here animal clearly wants nothing to do with me. How's about we make a spectacle out of me trying to ride it around?" Break a leg, pardner.

• Mountain climbing: To my mind, "King of the Hill" is a fun wintertime game for schoolkids and a pretty good cartoon — not a life goal.

• Floating around in zero gravity: Not because I wouldn't love to but because space tourism will be reserved for the Romney-level rich and Make-A-Wish kids. I am disappointingly middle-class and healthy.
