ARIES (March 21-April 19): Stay on top of the demands being made by those you feel responsible for, but don't jeopardize your emotional well-being in the process. Modesty and generosity are required if you want to come out a winner and maintain your popularity.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Discussions will help you resolve an issue you have with a friend, relative, or neighbor. A trip will bring about unexpected and perhaps unwanted changes. Be careful what you wish for. Overindulgence in any aspect of life is your enemy.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take charge and you will grab the attention of someone who can offer a different opinion or outlook on something that concerns you. Activities that challenge you physically will ease your stress and lead to friendships. Love is in the stars.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your reluctance to be an instigator will be your downfall. You must take control if you want things to head in the direction you favor. A passionate approach to whatever you do will help bring about the change needed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Steps taken to ensure you aren't being taken advantage of will lead to a healthy financial situation. Collect or pay back debts to make it easier to pursue your next venture. Adjusting your assets or sizing down will help.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Work quietly behind the scenes until you have something worth presenting. Giving away your ideas will lead to someone else's advancement. Steer clear of anyone you feel is unpredictable or likely to cost you financially or emotionally.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Charm your way to the top of any group you encounter. Stick to the facts, and enlist friends who have something to contribute to your latest pursuit. A twist of fate will push you in a direction you least expect.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Interact with people from different backgrounds, and you will broaden your outlook toward someone or something that will help you excel. A group effort will lead to potential financial gain. Create a personal environment geared toward creativity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Reconsider your plans before you proceed. You may desire change and excitement, but not everyone in your circle is prepared to take the same risk you are. Give an out to anyone who doesn't wish to tag along.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stand your ground, and be ready to push back should someone try to strong-arm you. A wrong move will set you back, so stick to what you know and do best. Ignore someone who tries to manipulate you using guilt tactics.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Reuniting with a past colleague, friend, or lover will bring back memories and revive old goals. Reassess your lifestyle, and consider spending more time with someone you feel can enhance your prospects and your future. Love is fortuitous.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get off the merry-go-round and plant your feet firmly on the ground, or no one will be interested in what you are trying to accomplish. An envious acquaintance is likely to mislead you. Keep an open mind, but an astute overview.





Summer in Iowa City:

• Sunning on the Pentacrest … just after it was sprayed with highly toxic weed killer.

• Sidewalk Sales … where you'd be crazy to pass-up deals like six XXXL Hawkeye sweatshirts for only $15.

• Convenient food carts … with awfully good smelling food and awfully horrible smelling vendors.

• Lounging on the beach at the Res … did a turd just float by?

• People watching on the Ped Mall … angry beggars, bad ukulele players, and hippies selling poorly made colored string crap "jewelry."

• Going to the Farmers' Market … meandering through a dank parking garage to buy vegan kolaches.

• Watching the great American pastime … Little League coaches verbally abusing 9-year-olds for not hitting homers.

• Cooling off at the Iowa City pool … and thinking "Coralville has a water slide."

• Catching a summer flick at the local theater… where $45 gets a couple admission, popcorn, flat sodas, and roughly two hours of air conditioning. (Worth it.)

• Going to Riverside for the Trekfest Parade… and coming back with a complete replica of Mr. Sulu's uniform ("Hellooooooo").

• Spotting all the fresh-faced, small-town kids here for sports camps … doing Jell-O shots at the bars downtown.

• Getting a double dipper at Whitey's … only to take one deliciously cold slurp before watching the rest fall off of the cone and onto the filthy sidewalk.

• Reading the cruddy Ledges the DI accepts because it is so desperate for copy.
