ARIES (March 21-April 19): Preparation is key. Expect to be limited by people who don't understand what you are trying to accomplish. Believe in what you can do, and forge ahead on your own. Satisfaction will be your reward, along with a healthy boost of confidence.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An opportunity to advance at work or to find a new job looks promising. Send out your résumé, answer ads, or set up interviews. Your enthusiasm will give you the edge that will help seal a deal you are working toward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can settle an emotional difference you have with someone if you are honest about the way you feel. Take advantage of a proposal, and you will have no regrets. Experience will play a role in helping you get what you want now.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): An emotional matter is likely to influence the way you do things. Don't trust anyone with an important job that needs your undivided attention. Live with a situation for a while before you make a decision that cannot be reversed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Form a tight alliance with the people you know you can trust. Working as a team player will help you earn respect. Much can be accomplished personally if you are versatile and welcome the changes that come along with sharing space or plans.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't take on too much. Before you go down that path, make sure you take care of personal matters that could make you look neglectful. Helping others is fine, but remember that charity begins at home. Offer suggestions, not time or money.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Learning should be high on your list. You will pick up information readily and be able to elaborate, turning whatever information you gather into something unique. Visiting a destination that offers you a change of scenery will do you good.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Noticing the little things will be to your advantage. Keep what you do mysterious, and pursue your goals quietly. A unique approach to a skill you have to offer will turn into a prosperous venture. When ready, share your vision with confidence.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share your knowledge, and you will get good feedback as well as the go-ahead to proceed with your plans. Helping others will bring you far more returns than expected.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may think you have control, but emotional matters will throw you off your game. Don't make assumptions; dig deep and find out what you need to know before you make a move. A partnership may be jeopardized by what you do or say.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Tie up loose ends so you can pursue something or someone special. You can turn one of your ideas or skills into a moneymaking venture. A change at home can bring you greater cash flow. Open-mindedness will lead to an excellent offer.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A partnership with someone creative will pay off. Expand your knowledge through networking functions, reading, and personal improvement projects. Make sure you are readily available to take part in an event that can enhance your plans. Love is in the stars.





Additional helpful excuses for not doing your homework this semester:

• I donated it to a needy student in the class. You can pay it forward by giving me an A.

• I was at a demonstration calling for higher salaries for UI professors.

• Can anybody ever really "know" the "answers" to homework, professor?

• I'd like to, but that would really cut into my not-doing-homework time.

• It's genetic: Both of my parents hated homework, so I hate homework. You wouldn't give me an F based on the color of my hair, skin, or eyes, so drop this unwarranted and close-minded inquiry as to the whereabouts of my homework, or you can expect a call from the ACLU, bigot.

• I was at my therapist's office.

• I was at a funeral.

• I was at my therapist's funeral.

• I was murdering my therapist.

• Sure, today it's homework, but what about next week? You might ask me for a report or a paper, or maybe even a class project. No, no, no; we're heading down a slippery slope here, and I have no intention of enabling you.

• I already did one homework assignment from you — isn't that enough proof that I know how to do homework? I think you might have a mild form of OCD or something.

• I burned it to keep it from falling into enemy hands.

• Doing homework brings back too many painful memories; my parents were killed by a rogue homework assignment.

• You didn't say "please."
