ARIES (March 21-April 19): Focus on what and whom you know and how you can market your skills. Consider a geographical move that will benefit you professionally. You can strike a deal that will bring in cash, but get what you want in writing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Using emotional tactics to get your way will end up costing you. Honesty and integrity will count in the end; don't compromise your position due to stubbornness or a minor detail. Turn your attention to fulfilling an obligation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Show off what you have to offer. Being consistent will determine whether you will be able to parlay what you have to offer into something substantial. Love and romance look promising. Take time out to socialize.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Give more thought to your personal life and future. The information you pick up now will alter the way you do things as well as the direction you follow. Let your creative imagination lead the way and you will not be disappointed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Choose your battles wisely. There is no point making a fuss over an issue you cannot win. Devote your time to making the changes that will transpire into getting your way without using pressure or bullying someone to give you what you want.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Deal with the consequence of being honest. Face your demons and the people who drag you down. Start fresh and strive for the life you've always wanted to live. Set priorities, take charge of your life and you will find happiness.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will learn a valuable lesson from someone in a position of authority. Travel plans and getting together with old friends will open a window of opportunity that will transform your current situation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Refuse to let your emotions get the better of you when dealing with professional affairs. Focus on what you can contribute, not what you can get in return. A unique solution will help keep the peace. Explore different lifestyles.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel plans or a change of scenery will help you make an important decision that will alter what you do for a living. Follow your heart. Love, romance and building an unusual connection with someone special will pay off.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Refrain from sharing too much personal information with others. You are better off remaining a little mysterious until you achieve what it is you want. Don't let a last-minute alteration that someone makes disrupt your plans.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take care of personal, financial and medical issues as well as alterations that need to be made at home. Opportunities will develop if you are generous with your time and your talents. There is a gift or cash heading in your direction.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Watch and observe, but avoid aggressive moves that might lead to a negative response. Show interest in what everyone around you is doing without criticizing or letting anyone know where you stand. Impulsive reactions will result in opposition.

Did My Predictions of the Swing States Pan Out?:

• Nevada: If there’s one state in the union that doesn’t care who the hell marries whom (no matter how drunk they are), as well as the importance of being able to undo the ramifications of an ill-conceived night of passion, it’s Nevada. Obama.

• Florida: Lots of old white people who want there to be more babies in the world. Romney.

• Wisconsin: Lovers of beer and cheese? They’ll be damned to be told how to raise their children in a healthier manner. Romney.

• Ohio: A four-letter state with only one vowel? Weirdos. Romney.

• Iowa: We lurves teh gayz. Obama.

• Pennsylvania: If you’ve ever walked the streets of Pittsburgh after 9 p.m., you understand how badly these people need universal health care. Obama.

• North Carolina: Really? It’s too close to call. But unlike the Republicans, I’m a firm believer in charity. Romney.

• New Hampshire: Close to (with a similar disposition as) Massachusetts, which is where Mitt Romney invented ObamaCare. So … tough call. Good skiing, though — and that’s a rich person thing. Romney.

· Colorado: More skiing than New Hampshire, but also more into legalizing pot and Hooters franchises. Obama.

· Virginia: It’s for lovers. All kinds. Male on male? OK. Female on female? Most def. Female on male on two ferrets and a hooker wife? Sounds like a country song, but it’ll fly in Virginia. Just like a rainbow flag soon will. Obama.

Andrew R. Juhl predicts a 271-267 win for Obama. Margin of error: +/-3.
