ARIES (March 21-April 19): By acting on impulse, you will surprise someone who will divulge information you require. Your spontaneity will keep everyone wondering what you'll do next. Variety and diversification are your tickets to success.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Deal with any legal, financial, or health matters quickly. You may have to use a little force if you want to get things done on time and to your specifications. Don't give in to an emotional ploy that will end up costing you financially.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be realistic regarding the promises you make. If you are too generous with your time, money, or the services you offer, someone will take advantage of you. Problems or opposition will arise if you are too open about your plans.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't be disillusioned by what others say or do. Stick to the truth, and keep your thoughts out in the open. Honesty will be the only route to take if you don't want to suffer a loss. Don't give in to emotional manipulation.





Random Movie Thoughts:

The Convoy Rule: Too few film credits begin with the words "Screenplay based on the song …"

• I had forgotten how much of a Christian allegory the Chronicles of Narnia was until I watched The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The only real difference is that Christ, after his self-resurrection, did not immediately go forth and tear Pilate's throat out with his bare teeth. Though, to be fair, that kind of thing would have kept me going to catechism longer than I did.

The Terminator Rule: If you have a time machine, just say that — there's absolutely no need to get into all the details of how and why.

Citizen Kane: Not the best sledding movie. It's still in my top five, but it's got nothing on Cool Runnings.

• Maybe it's just me, but I expected Cliffhanger to have a more ambiguous ending.

The English Patient Rule: If you have been "meaning to" watch a movie for more than a decade, it's probably not a movie you will actually enjoy.

While You Were Sleeping … is a really sweet movie title, up until the point you realize the end of the thought is "… I started banging Bill Pullman, so now I'm leaving you."

The Tron: Legacy Rule: "Movies should make a least a tiny amount of logical sense" is just, like, your opinion, man.
