ARIES (March 21-April 19): Move money around to cover your costs. A deal being offered is too good to refuse. A partnership will be a stabilizing factor in your life. New surroundings will give you a creative injection that improves your skills and productivity.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Listen to your heart, and don't be influenced by someone trying to manipulate your decision. Concentrate on creating your own scenario and deciding what works for you. You will learn a lot if you follow your own path.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't let the actions of others cause doubt. There is plenty you can do to improve your life if you sign up for events, activities, and lessons that will benefit you. Don't be a follower when you are a leader at heart.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep up with the trends and the times. Updates must be made, both personally and professionally. What you learn now will help you in the future. Don't pass up an opportunity to acquire skills or to get involved in a serviceable venture.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Rely on what you know, not how you feel about what's going on around you. A costly mistake will occur if you listen to someone you love instead of relying on facts and figures to lead you in the right direction.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone's action is likely to disturb you. Take steps to secure your position and protect your assets and reputation. Travel to discuss what you want to see happen face-to-face with someone important.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You need a change of pace and surroundings. Don't be fooled into taking an expensive trip. You'll get just as much out of a more budget-friendly destination that lets you enjoy people, places, or things you don't see that often.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't get wrapped up in someone else's melodrama. Back away from anyone trying to dump guilt or responsibilities in your lap. Do something that allows you to be creative and productive. Travel for business connections or knowledge.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Excess and opportunity will go hand in hand. Showing off a little will impress the right people. Your drive, attitude, and ability to take action will lead to a proposal that will be too hard to turn down. Love is highlighted.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Listen carefully. You don't want to miss important information that will influence the choice you make. Not everyone will be on your team, so be careful not to fall for a biased point of view. Rely on what you know.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make a point of spending time with positive people who have similar interests. An opportunity to make a move geographically or to try out a different way of life is apparent. Educational pursuits will give you greater skills and confidence.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't take unnecessary risks. You must stick to what you know and do best to avoid suffering a loss. Too much of anything will not bring you the success you hope to achieve. Moderation and common sense will be required.





What I Found in the Couch:

• An abandoned Walkman with an audiobook cassette (Couch Spelunking for Beginners).

• The user's manual to the couch, which was actually more interesting than you'd think.

• A very authentic-looking treasure map that only led to the pirate-theme furniture store (Aaarrrrmoires, Etc.) where the couch was purchased.

• A passageway to Charlie Kaufman's mind, allowing unfettered access to his best, most original ideas.

• Schmutz, mostly.

• A miniature replica of the couch itself, puzzlingly.

• The best sushi place you have ever been to. I swear.

• A dust-bunny, a grime-kangaroo, and a lint-man.

• Loose change, but only Canadian pennies and dimes.

• All of a sudden, an oversized boxing glove on a spring.

• My hide-and-seek opponent, who then finked-out of being "it" by claiming he had jury duty.

• A colony of tiny people who drugged me with needle arrows dipped in a powerful sedative, tied me up with dental floss, and made off with my car keys. They joy rode for hours, by means of an elaborate system of pulleys, and a teensy captain who coordinated their efforts.

• My car keys. But that was much, much later.

• A copy of my résumé, to which I immediately added "Couch Spelunker."

• My calling.

Will Hartman will just be over here napping, if you need him.
