ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emphasize what it is you want to accomplish. Talk about your plans, and figure out a way to stretch your cash to fit the budget you will need to push forward. Don’t let negativity or unhappy peers hold you back. Focus on positive relationships.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Speak from the heart, and share what you feel will work with regard to both personal and professional projects. Interacting with your peers will be key to finding solutions for any problem you face. Look for a unique way to help others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t feel pressured or rushed to make a decision or take action. You need time to reflect on what has transpired before you can move forward and make the right choice. Socializing with friends will ease your stress.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Plan an event with the people you enjoy spending time with the most. Getting together and sharing good times will help you build a stronger bond and give you a better understanding of the people you love. Short trips will be enlightening.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Impulsive action will be costly. Focus on the things you can do to make personal improvements. Prospects will develop by reuniting with someone you’ve worked with in the past. Let your charm guide you to bigger and better options.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stay calm when dealing with a partner, children, or anyone you live with. Emotions will escalate, causing situations to get blown out of proportion. Do something creative that will help you improve your life. Avoid arguments and no-win situations.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep your plans simple but adventuresome. You’ll gain plenty of experience if you get involved in activities that are new and exciting. Listen; observe how others respond to what you do and say. Leadership is within reach. Love is in the stars.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Follow through with promises, or you will face an emotional situation that is likely to put you in an awkward position at a social setting. An unusual source will lead to an interesting concept or endeavor you should pursue.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t stray too far off the beaten path. You will come up against opposition and argumentative people if you travel too far from home. Concentrate on family, your residence, and making your life comfortable, not chaotic. Love is highlighted.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Good fortune can be yours. Check out your options, and look for opportunities in your field. A change may not be what you choose, but the information you gain through research will help you present what you would like to see unfold.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t rely on others or on your intuition. Clarity will not be your strong point, and conversations will lead you astray. Spend time at home, go over your personal papers, or fix up your place to suit your current needs. Work on self-improvement.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take your time, and refrain from jumping to conclusions or voicing your opinion before you have all the facts. Discipline must be implemented, and the focus should be on making the most of your assets and taking care of your health.

7 Action Films Reimagined as Independent Shorts, Based on Their Titles:

• Mad Max: Mel Gibson fumes as an anti-Semite misogynist with road rage, in a performance that is a real testament to his ability to pretend to be someone he definitely isn’t.

• Blade Runner: A fake documentary featuring a washed-up looking Harrison Ford recalling his brush with glory as an Olympic figure-skating alternate.

• The Rock: Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage are embroiled in a vicious custody battle over their pet rock. (Shot from the point of view of the rock.)

• Eraser: Arnold Schwarzenegger repeatedly scribbles and erases nonsensical messages to himself. The majority of the scenes are close-up shots of the eraser, underscoring the ephemeral nature of knowledge with the perseverance of forgetfulness.

• Blade: Wesley Snipes cuts himself shaving, then contemplates the fragility of life as the camera slowly pans in for a time-lapse shot of the blood congealing on his razor.

• Source Code: Jake Gyllenhaal is a scientist seeking the Entirely Encompassing Equation of Everything, and he is driven mad as a result. But was it the quest for the answer that drove him to insanity, or was it the answer itself?

• The Grey: Liam Neeson stares into a midwinter sky, contemplating a future in which he will not exist, an eventuality simultaneously certain and unknown.

WILL HARTMAN works at the Bijou and craves neither adventure nor excitement.
