ARIES (March 21-April 19): Plan a get-together with old friends or take a moment to re-evaluate your strategy for the upcoming year. This is a great day to talk about your plans or share what you have to offer with people in influential or knowledgeable positions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your partnerships must be looked at carefully. Size up who has done what, and make an effort to equalize your position one way or another. Taking a creative idea and turning it into a useful solution will bring you applause and maneuverability.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Respond graciously. Love and compassion will help you avoid discord. Not everyone will agree with your choices, and some may be dishonest to avoid involvement, but at the end of the day, you are the one who has to live with your decisions.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look at your past and present before you decide on future prospects. You must ensure that you will be victorious before you tell everyone your plans. Love is in the stars, and discussing your feelings and commitment will change your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t allow anyone to weigh you down with responsibilities that don’t belong to you. Put your priorities in order, and make sure everyone knows your schedule. It’s important that you mingle with people who can contribute to a brighter future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Shopping, socializing, and sharing with friends will be a pick-me-up as long as you don’t take on too much or overspend in the process. Set your budget, and you will ensure that everything you do will be accessible and affordable.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to what elders in your family and workplace have to say. You will find out valuable information that will help and encourage you to make the right choice personally and professionally. Don’t get angry when what’s needed is making a difference.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t question your desires — make them happen. Shying away from something you’ve wanted to do for a long time will leave you depressed. Follow through with your ideas, and broaden your spectrum. It’s up to you to do what’s required to advance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your enthusiasm will motivate others to pitch in and help. Focus on what you can do for those in need, and you will boost your image and attract hefty support. Getting together with someone from your past will lead to deception.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Uncertainty will kick in, causing you self-doubt and raising the possibility of making a costly mistake. Rethink your plans. You will see that compromise is required in order to make things work personally and professionally.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Listen carefully, and respond slowly. Ask questions, and look at what’s being offered and the type of results you can expect to get. Keep your festivities simple and thrifty. Someone showing interest may not have good intentions.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Focus on travel, love, and learning about different lifestyles and traditions. Don’t be too quick to judge others or to concur with a decision you feel iffy about. Promises must be kept, so don’t commit to anything that will be hard to honor.

The contents of the manicure kit I got for Christmas last year:

·   Enormous nail clipper.  Used for: clipping the nail on my big toe, as it's the only nail big enough to require it.

·   Razor. Used for: shaving, presumably of the hair on my toes (or my palms).

·   Tweezers. Used for: removing any splinters that may have accumulated in my extremities.

·   Little metal dealie that looks like one of the sticks they used for the “Joust” game in “American Gladiators,” except that one end is pointy.  Used for: sending ants toppling off their platforms, leaving them to seek revenge against me in the "Assault" event.

·   Mirror with hole on the top. Used for: seeing things that are behind my fingers or toes.

·   Normal-sized nail clipper. Used for: clipping all the other nails.

·   Replacement blades for razor. Used for: when combined with mirror, cocaine abuse.

·   Nail scissors.  Use for: cutting open packages if I can't find real scissors.

·   Combination nail file and "shaper", which is kinda like a stencil for what nails are supposed to look like.  Used for: filing and stenciling nails.

·   Thingamajig that looks like a cell phone but has Velcro inside. Used for: hell if I know.
