New Feature! Sudoku below Horoscopes and Ledge, play online or print it out!

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Sort through your personal papers, and see where you stand. The realization that you need to make financial alterations to ensure a brighter future will help you put stipulations on the way you have been handling both work and personal matters.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will make a mistake when dealing with a partnership. Don’t give in to any demands or trust in what’s being offered. To stay in control, you will have to set guidelines and rules with equality being necessary.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of preparations for upcoming festive events or to prepare your home or surroundings to better suit your plans for the year ahead. Ask questions if you need input from someone who will be influenced by the decisions you make.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stick to what you do best. Choose a destination that will engage your mind with ideas that you can implement into your seasonal investments or social plans. Share your creative thoughts, and you’ll get help initiating your plans.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Enjoy the company of an old friend or lover. Embrace the hobbies, people, and pastimes you used to enjoy. Memories will help you get your life back in perspective and lead to the changes that will ease future stress.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): High energy coupled with excitement will help you spread your joy and please those around you. Planning a trip or talking about your plans for the festive season or the upcoming year will help you make a decision that must be done quickly.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A disappointment doesn’t have to knock you off your feet. Instead of skipping a beat, reorganize and reschedule quickly. You will be able to follow through with your plans, and you will gain control over your current personal situation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Diplomacy will be your ticket to good results. Share information, and look at alternatives offered. Keep emotional matters in the background, and you will avoid a problem that could disrupt your business plans.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Good ideas will spring from conversations you have with a unique individual. Make sure you don’t ruffle feathers when dealing with institutions or agencies that can influence what you need to complete before the end of the year.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Size up your situation, and make your move. Counter an offer, and make it clear you want to close any deal you are working on before you break for the end-of-year festivities. Trust in your ability — so will others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Listen carefully. What’s being said or offered may have underlying implications that will not suit your purpose or needs if you accept it. Back away from any deal you feel uncertain about, and rethink your strategy. Time is on your side.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look beyond the obvious. You will recognize an opportunity to do something unique that can increase your financial future and satisfy your physical and emotional needs. Love and romance are highlighted along with contracts, settlements, and legal matters.

Not-so-helpful finals advice:

• If you drank a lot of coffee while you studied, then you need to drink a bunch right before your test your brain can remember everything better.

• Spanish words that end in -o, -a, and -e are masculine, feminine, and transvestite, respectively.

• If you have a final in a PE class, then you’re the only person who does.

• Communication majors, don’t forget to bring the full box of crayons to your finals. With the built in sharpener, of course.

• The perfect break from studying is an all-day “Law & Order: SVU” marathon.

• Wikipedia is usually more up-to-date, credible, and well-written than your textbook. Even the Wikipedia entry on Wikipedia says so.

• Final exam start times are pretty flexible; if you’re five or 20 minutes late, it’s no big deal.

• The best way to learn material really fast is to put all of your books under your pillow before you go to sleep and then sleep on the floor.

• Drawing cartoons instead of writing short answers is always advisable; it shows the test graders that you have such a firm grasp of the consent.

• Flirting with the professor is guaranteed to raise your letter grade … among other things.

• If you’re going to attempt to cheat, sit in the front row. They’ll never suspect it …

• If all else fails, resort to blackmail and/or bribery. Hey, if it’s a poli-sci class, you might even get extra credit.
