ARIES (March 21-April 19): Focus on what you enjoy most. Enhance a partnership, whether it's personal or professional, by treating the person you are involved with to something a little out of the ordinary.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't be gullible. Avoid a fast-talker. Ask questions, and avoid making a costly error. A short trip will lead to a professional or financial opportunity. Check out real estate or a job that interests you. Make changes conducive to your advancement.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't feel the need to address a situation you are not ready to tackle. Activities that help you get in shape or shopping for something that will contribute to your looks will result in compliments. Love is on the rise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may know what you want, but getting others to agree to your terms won't be as easy. Move forward on your own, and you will avoid interference. Keep in mind that an impulsive move isn't likely to pan out the way you expect.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A trip will lead to a change of mind. Interacting with friends or relatives or meeting people that inspire you to try new things will result in enthusiasm and a desire to reach for your goals. Someone from your past will influence you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look over personal papers and make suitable changes. Extra money will come to you through an investment, settlement, contract, winning, or debt owed. Reclaim an idea you have that can be put into play now. Combine the old with the new, and prosper.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Express yourself creatively no matter what you are doing. It's important to meet new people. Revisiting negative problems will only lead to more upset and no resolutions. A partnership with someone sharing your interest will lead to prosperity.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Attend events that can teach you something. Meeting people and mixing business with pleasure will get you closer to your goals as well as position you better with regard to getting the lowdown on other activities that interest you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't let opposition bother you. Embrace challenge, and you will gain ground and make new friends. Love is in the stars, and it should be coupled with celebrating life and what you have to be thankful for.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Opposition will stand in your way. Take the path of least resistance, and you will get what needs to be done out of the way. Spend less time traveling and communicating and more time doing what interests you most.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Personal gains should be your prime concern. Your history will help you realize what you can accomplish now. The people you have known longest will support your efforts. There is money to be made and self-satisfaction to gain.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Give a little back, and you will attract interest from someone who can help you fulfill your goals. Someone from your past will contribute to something you want to pursue now. You can rebuild an old friendship, but set ground rules before you begin.





Helpful excuses for not doing your homework this semester:

• My dog and I got into an existential argument over my homework.

• I realized "My dog ate my homework" was an anagram for "My God ate my homework." I mean, like, whoa, y'know?

• On advice from counsel, I will make no further comments about this situation until authorities have made a full investigation.

• I have a rule: if the drink specials at Brothers are more enticing than my homework, I belly up to the bar. See you in May.

• ProfessorWithUnrealisticExpectationsSaysWhat?

• I judge homework assignments on a case-by-case basis. So far, I feel the homework you've been assigning does not illustrate your best efforts. You'll need to make some improvements before I can, in good conscience, consider handing in an assignment.

• Sure, I could do the homework, but wouldn't you feel better about yourself if *you* did it?

• Allow me to refer you to my "Calvin & Hobbes" collection. Bill Watterson, via his 6-year-old alter ego, proved beyond any doubt that homework is unnecessary. Please, do not continue to besmirch his good name with your paltry "suggested readings."

• I didn't do this terrible homework, but I want you to know that I WILL NOT REST until I find the students who did and see them brought to justice.

• I was too busy last night thinking up a good excuse for why I didn't do my homework.
