ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't let erratic behavior cloud your vision or send you spinning in the wrong direction. Look at what transpires and size up your situation based on what you can win or lose in the process. Change is necessary but it has to be positive.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't let compliments fool you into believing you have everything under control. Someone is trying to manipulate the situation or get something from you. Rethink everyone's motives, including your own, before you proceed. Love is in the stars.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You've got plenty of choices. Use your intelligence and separate your emotions from the equation and you will make a suitable decision that will bring you good fortune and greater opportunity. Speak concisely and from the heart.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Go out and have fun with friends. Attend a reunion or contact someone you haven't seen for a long time. Interacting with people from your past will help you see your personal situation clearly, giving you ideas as to what you should do next.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Expand your interests and your friendships. Call in favors and travel to unfamiliar places that are sure to inspire you to follow through with your goals. Avoid anyone putting demands on you. You need a little time to develop your plans.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can get a lot done, but you must also put time aside for love and your favorite pastimes. All work and no play will lead to someone's loss of interest in you. Nurture the relationships that are dear to you. Put love first.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make plans to get out and have some fun. Networking functions will lead to greater prosperity. Your intelligent way of expressing your plans for the future will interest someone entrepreneurial. An unexpected change will end up being beneficial.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't waste time trying to prove a point to someone who is stubborn. You are best to focus on your interests or creative projects. Avoid overdoing it in any way. Keep your money in a safe place and your assets well protected.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll have a good view of the possibilities that exist through a friendship or a change in location. Strive to contribute and you will earn a secure position. Personal changes will turn out well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Pressure can be expected from an unusual source. Prepare to make your point clear, but be willing to listen. Combining what you have with what's being offered will be what leads to your success.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are the one everybody is watching. You are a trendsetter and do what you can to change the way people think or do things. Invest in yourself, your surroundings and your lifestyle. A reward is within reach.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Too much information is being kept a secret. You either have to share or avoid moving in a direction that can be detrimental to your future goals. Not everyone will be willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. Play fair.

Thoughts on Breakfast:

• They say breakfast is the most important meal, so eat it three to four times daily.

• Breakfast dates never work. At the end of the date, you'll get excuses like "I would, but I have to do my laundry" or "How about we see where grocery shopping leads us."

• Little known fact: all Kevin Bacon fans prefer sausage with their eggs.

• Anything bite-sized can be cereal, just add milk. If you don't have milk, then coffee, Mountain Dew, or orange juice can serve in a pinch.

• Waffles, pancakes, and fruit are only healthy if they are not soaked in syrup, butter, and powdered sugar, even if they are in the shape of Mickey Mouse.

• Shakes and smoothies can be a quick, nutritious breakfast. I would still suggest you cook your frozen pizza, waffles, and bacon before blending them, though.

• Did you know: Eating eggs was illegal until 1973? That's the year the Supreme Court ruled in favor of farmers, deciding that "chickens aren't legally alive until they've hatched."

• Sick of French Toast? Make American Toast instead. Recipe: Make macaroni & cheese, substituting Budweiser for water. Mix in hamburger (87/13, preferably). "Dip" Texas Toast into mix. Deep fry. Top with cheese, ketchup, and a doughnut. Eat less than half of it, and throw the rest away.
