ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep things flowing, and you will avoid criticism. Offer positive thoughts and compassion to those you deal with, and you will get what you want in return. Love is highlighted, and a past partner is likely to reappear.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put some power behind whatever you say you are going to do. Follow through with determination and intensity; concentrate on relationships that benefit you. Sidestep anyone who tries to get in your way. Strength and courage will result in leadership.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put more emphasis on what you have to offer, and you will improve your position. Emotions will surface, but if you take a compassionate approach when dealing with others, you will gain approval instead of opposition. Love is in the stars.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll find some bargains if you go shopping. Picking up little things for friends or colleagues will be a nice way to show your appreciation. Networking and exploring pastimes that interest you will lead to new beginnings and exhilarating challenges.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Push through whatever you can complete. It’s important to show how capable you are if you want to avoid complaints. Physical challenges will help ease stress. Charm, diplomacy, and refusing to let anyone upset you will be the trick to maintaining good relationships.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your knowledge and expertise will separate you from any competition you face. Discuss your plans, and seek support from your community and those in a position to help you accomplish your goals. A proposal based on the facts you offer will pay off.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Open up emotionally, and you will grab the attention of someone who can relate to your concerns. Make self-improvements. Short trips, shopping, or getting together with a friend will brighten your day.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Express your thoughts and plans for the future. Personal changes can lead to improved finances as well as a new beginning. Re-evaluate your relationships with others, and consider who is beneficial. Don’t settle for less when you can have more.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep moving in the direction that suits you best. Someone may withhold information, but as long as you are aware and do your fact-finding, you are not likely to miss a beat when striving to reach your goals. Love is accentuated.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tie up loose ends. Set up your strategy, and take stock of what you have and what you need to get where you want to go. Serious progress can be made if you are diligent when you negotiate.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep your thoughts private until you see what everyone around you says and does. You can improve or harm your reputation depending on your actions. Spending time with someone special or fixing up your home will ease your stress.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Play to win. Do not let your emotions lead to your downfall. Meddling will not bring good results, but wheeling and dealing positively will make others want to participate in what you are offering. Self-improvement will come at a price.

Warming up for Thanksgiving (1/2):

• I’m thankful that my Thanksgiving Food Coma and Wild Turkey keep me oblivious to the events of Black Friday every year

• I’m thankful there was never a Basic Instinct 2 … oh, crap.

• I’m thankful that there is no such thing as a jury of my peers.

• I’m thankful for my “fat pants” (but sad that they’re now my “always pants”).

• I’m thankful that approximately 90 percent of my students can find my office without explicit instructions but worry that the others won’t make it in the wild.

• I’m thankful the witnesses “disappeared.”

• I’m thankful for thankfulness. Without it, I’d be ungrateful.

• I’m thankful that cookies can’t feel pain.

• I’m thankful that the ransom was paid in nonsequential bills.

• I’m thankful for the suspenseful background music that tells me the killer is near …

• I’m thankful time travel hasn’t been invented yet, because I just KNOW that I’d get hired to kill my future self.

• I’m thankful that I only have to feign gratitude once a year.

• I’m thankful that all the world’s honey bees are going extinct, because SCREW bees, man.

• I’m thankful people don’t mistake me for a hobo during “No Shave November.”

Andrew R. Juhl is thankful for all his friends, even those who didn’t contribute to this Ledge, but especially LTD.
