ARIES (March 21-April 19): An offer you cannot refuse will develop if you are generous with your time, knowledge, and suggestions. Don’t limit the possibilities because of someone who cannot make up her or his mind. Stick to your plan.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Ulterior motives will be behind an offer you receive from one of your peers. Proceed with caution. You may be best to do your own thing and forgo having to get involved in a situation that may not be in your best interest.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You know what you want and how to go about getting it. Put your best foot forward, and dazzle everyone with your ability to present something unique. Greater prosperity will come through the connections you make now. Speak your mind.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Plan to visit an interesting destination, or take part in an event that will open your eyes to different cultures or ways of doing things. The experience you have now will help you pick and choose better options and ways of doing things.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take more time to secure partnerships with people who can make a difference to your future. Expanding your interests and your circle of friends will help you develop an alternative way to make your money grow. Say what’s on your mind.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t make a fuss. Deal with what’s being asked of you, and you’ll gain respect and find time to do something you enjoy. Socializing or getting involved in a new pastime will brighten your day. Love is in the stars.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can make a good impression by sharing your knowledge, skills, and suggestions as well as offering hands-on help to someone you feel has potential. Physical activity will help you look your best as well as spice up your social life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Fix up your home or utilize your space to better suit a hobby or project you want to pursue. Taking a serious look at your life and what you want to do in the future will help you make a decision regarding current partnerships.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotions will be difficult to contain. Make sure you address issues that have been bothering you or pending for some time. The changes you make now will help you deal with past and present relationships. Ask for what you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Avoid making unnecessary changes. You are best to stick to what you know and do best. Problems while traveling or dealing with friends, relatives, or neighbors will develop if you aren’t willing to compromise. Gossip will be misleading.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be faced with a choice that can alter the way you live. Visitors will offer suggestions that can help you move ahead with your plans. Sharing your thoughts can hurt a relationship that has been dear to you in the past.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep life simple. Avoid overdoing it mentally, physically, or financially. Too much of anything will lead to rumors. A change of heart or plans will help push you out of harm’s way. Someone you are close to will take you by surprise.



Random thoughts:

• Did everyone have a good MLK Day? What’s that? You’re right. There is no possible way I could know what you just answered.

• I feel like most Mexican cuisine is just plate after plate of a people trying to recreate the stunning perfection of the burrito. And failing.

• When is Bill Gates going to stop goofing around and finish his bachelor’s degree?

• “What if the plants you eat were grown by a farmer wearing leather boots? What if they were fertilized with manure? What if a WORM touched it?” — sometimes, I like to try to think like a radical vegan for entertainment purposes.

• I couldn’t sleep the other night. It got to be 3:30 a.m., so I started thinking I should do something worthwhile because I was already awake — like clean my house. Then I realized that cleaning one’s house in the middle of the night is something a meth addict would do. Then I realized that most meth addicts probably have cleaner houses than me. Then I felt bad. Until the meth kicked in.

• “I hate hipsters” — things hipsters say.

• Why do so many recipes state what size mixing bowl to use? I feel like, if you can’t figure out how big of a bowl you need for two cups plus four cups plus a few teaspoons or whatever and then mixing, you probably shouldn’t be using such appliances as ovens.
