ARIES (March 21-April 19): Reassess your budget, and put changes into motion quickly. A creative idea will help you save money between now and the end of the year. Reopen conversations with people you haven’t seen for a long time, and find out where your relationship stands.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your observation will pay off when dealing with partnerships. The little extras you do now will help divulge what others truly think and plan to do in the future. Read between the lines, and you will discover the best move you can make.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid confrontation. Your tendency to overreact will get you into trouble with someone who can influence your future. Stay calm, and focus on adding a unique spin to the way you handle a job you’ve been given. A personal change will do you good.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Turn on the charm, and present your thoughts. You will drum up support and attract someone interested in doing more with you. Love is on the rise, and greater interaction with people sharing your concerns will lead to good times ahead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Problems, delays, and interference will set your plans back. Be prepared to make last-minute changes. Don’t get frazzled by what others do or say. Taking the high road and doing your best will speak volumes about you as a person.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Give-and-take will be the name of the game. Stop trying to do everything, and admit you need help. Your ability to work alongside others will open up new friendships and future proposals. Less said and more done will pay off.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Remembering the past can help you move forward. Think about your accomplishments, setbacks, hurts, and loves this past year, and decide how you can put them behind you and prepare to do better next year. Back away from anyone who has meddled.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Say what’s on your mind, and you will inspire others to pitch in and help. Your relentless courage, dedication, and endless determination will impress people and position you for a brighter future. Put your prime relationship at the top of your list.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Brighten up your surroundings, spice up your life, and make changes that will help you move into next year feeling confident and ready to take on the world. Do your best not to divulge a secret, or you may damage your reputation.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Say what you think, and finish what you start — you will gain respect. Promises made will be honored. Good things will develop through the interaction you have with friends, colleagues, and your lover. Participate in social networking.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll face problems when dealing with authority figures or those trying to enforce rules or regulations you don’t agree with. You may have to reinvent the way you do things or the lifestyle you choose in order to avoid opposition.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will attract attention. Before you decide to take over, you may want to consider what’s entailed. Too much of anything is the enemy. Bide your time, and use it wisely to encourage profit as well as personal acceptance.

Random thoughts:

• Pretty much anything labeled “Shake well before opening” might as well be labeled “Open, taste, make face, close tight, shake well, and open again.”

• If I owned a water slide, I bet I’d get pretty good at working it into conversations.

• Why do old people drive slowly? They don’t have as much time left as the rest of us; one would think they’d waste less of it driving 10 under.

• Can’t a woman wear a bikini, stand onstage, and have cheap beer poured all over her without a bunch of men objectifying her?

• Sometimes people get sad, and that’s OK. What’s bad is when you’re sad all the time. But, hey, it’s also not a good thing to be happy all the time. Emotions are kind of like erections: you should probably call your doctor if you have one that lasts for more than four days.

• Of all the differences between men and women, I think perhaps the biggest is that there’s no scenario in which a man would be happy to find blood in his underwear.

• If I connect my Tumblr to my Facebook, instagram to my Tumblr, Foursquare, and Twitter, my Twitter to my Tumblr, and my Foursquare to my Facebook … what happens when I take a picture of a cat?
