ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't be disheartened by what someone says. Trust in your judgment, and follow your heart. Resurrect goals, then modify them to fit the changing times. Your ideas are good; all that's required is fine-tuning. Love is in the stars.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put power and authority in your voice if you want something. Pressure may not be your style, but today, it will help you make your point and get your way. A contract, interview, or professional advancement is looking positive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of your health and your emotional outlook, and refuse to argue. Discipline and changes that can improve your life should be your intent. Love is on the rise, but poor choices will lead to trouble.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pour time and energy into creative projects, and do your best to explain whatever situation you are being questioned about in an objective but descriptive manner. How you present yourself and your beliefs will make a difference.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may crave change, but don't go overboard. Size up your situation, and look at the responsibilities that are likely to develop before you take a leap of faith that has potential to spin out of control. Baby steps will be your best bet.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be true to you; don't let someone turn you into someone you're not. Confusion regarding partnerships is apparent, and it will be necessary to step back from a relationship to re-evaluate your position and intentions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen carefully to get the inside scoop regarding how to take advantage of an opportunity. Make a change in the way you do your job, or pick up a skill that contributes to earning more cash. Hard work will pay off.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone from your past will come through for you regarding a job or a partnership that has potential to raise your status. Make a space at home that will be conducive to enhancing your creativity and expanding your financial prospects.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put your heart on the line, and spell out what you feel you need in your life to achieve greater satisfaction and happiness. You will not receive unless you ask. You'll know quickly if someone is in your corner or opposing you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Explosive situations always lead to disaster. Avoid anyone who is erratic or refuses to listen to reason. Focus on what you can do to improve your domestic situation and your physical surroundings. A change of residence or upgrading your home will help your emotional outlook.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Old friends will help you reach personal goals. An effort to fix whatever isn't working for you will result in greater encouragement. Love is in the stars. Spending time with someone who strives to live a healthy lifestyle will enhance your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't let confusion lead you down the wrong path. If someone is sending mixed signals or won't offer a straight answer, move on. A change of heart will occur when you realize the motives someone is harboring.





Re-examining a few more well-known sayings:

• "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." I always thought the enemy of my enemy would be an even bigger enemy. Because of exponents.

• "A smile is just a frown turned upside down." A frown is just a smile turned pragmatist.

• "Variety is the spice of life." Also … salt. It's in everything.

• "Excuses are like noses: Everybody's got one." Also: They come in handy if you have a bad cocaine habit.

• "Once you go black, you never go back." That's why I don't eat green olives any more.

• "A breakup is like a broken mirror: It is better to leave it broken than hurt yourself trying to fix it." But I still broke a flippin' mirror — that's bad luck.

• "If you love somebody, set them free. If they come back, it's meant to be." And if he doesn't move at all? You probably kept him chained him up in your basement for too long.

• "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." That sounds worse than an eyelash.

• "What you see is what you get." Unless that shizz is an iceberg, right, DiCaprio?

• "You've got to stand for something, or you'll fall for anything." I stand for alcohol, but I still fall down. A lot.

• "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." Everyone is taken? Frick. No wonder I'm single.
