ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may have to appease someone you care about. Emotional matters will escalate if you aren’t willing to back down or at least compromise. Helping a cause is fine but not if it affects a close relationship. Pick and choose your battles wisely.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Communicate — you will get your point across. Love is on the rise, and making future plans will bring you closer together. Someone is likely to call your bluff or ask for a commitment. Your timing must be impeccable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone will offer you poor advice or information. Do your own research before you make a decision that will alter your reputation. Keep life simple, honor your commitments, and you will find workable solutions for any troublesome encounter you face.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Determination will get you where you want to go, but don’t be foolish and overspend to make an impression. Only offer what you can afford. Giving in to demands will set you back and cause a problem with someone you love.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A business trip or meeting will pay off as long as you are consistent and stay within your means. A partnership can help you meet the demands being put on you but only if you are both willing to share responsibilities equally.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Give others a chance to express what they would like to see happen before you make a decision that affects others. Networking will pay off in terms of the people you connect with and the information you receive. Love is highlighted.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let an emotional situation stop you from doing what’s right. Only offer what’s feasible, and be prepared to do things a little differently in order to reach desired results. An element of surprise will help you grab the attention of someone important.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick to the people you know you can trust. Sharing information with someone unfamiliar will lead to a loss. Stick close to home, and explore some of the creative ideas you would like to flesh out and put into play in the future.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t sit there waiting for someone else to make the first move. Follow your instincts, and do what’s best for you. Altering the way you live can result in greater opportunities. Be open to suggestions — but follow your heart.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Size up your situation, and you will soon see a right way and a wrong way to proceed. You have to be true to your ethics and morals even if it means letting someone down. Truth will lead you in the right direction.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It may take a little work, but if you look hard enough, you will find a solution for a sticky situation you face with a friend or relative. Spend time at home creating a space that will lead to extra income or comfort.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You are in the groove, and people will take notice of what you do. Mix practicality with ingenuity and interesting concepts, and you will create a buzz that will result in getting the support and help you need. Romance is highlighted.

General and unsolicited advice:

• If you want to impress people, the best thing to do is adopt a new, cooler name. It worked for my grandfather, Prince Elvis Z. DragonChampion IV. He changed it to Kenneth Juhl.

• Every once in a while, during a particularly uninspired meeting or class, stand up and decry, “Eureka! I’ve got it!” Then just leave, go home, and take a nap.

• Ice-cream sandwiches are tasty and all, but they’re also full of needless calories. Every time you get to urge to have one, simply reach for a much more sensible ice-cream salad instead.

• If you’re ever worried about your finances, just sit down and calmly list your incoming funds and outgoing expenditures on a piece of paper, then crumple that piece of paper up and eat it. See? You just saved money on food. Good for you.

• There are times in your life when it’s simply necessary, and healthy, to quietly meditate on life’s important questions: Who am I? Where am I going with all this? How did I get a piece of hotdog in my underwear? Am I out of wine?

Andrew R. Juhl is never out of wine.
