TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take care of business. Don't leave your responsibilities for someone else to deal with. You can talk all you want about doing something, but until you actually do, it's all conjecture.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll question or be questioned about your personal life and relationships. Honesty is the best policy, but only offer what's necessary. Avoid compromising your financial position. Speak from the heart, but only offer so much. Positive change is on the horizon.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep life simple. Having a positive attitude will help you keep opposition at arm's length, giving you the chance to follow a path that is more suitable to you. Problems at home are best left alone for now. You need time to think.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Lots of talk is fine, but you must follow through if you don't want to make a poor impression. Finding a new or more interesting way to earn extra cash will help build your confidence as well as your reputation. Romantic opportunities are present.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emotional issues will escalate if you don't address the existing problems. Think outside the box, and you will come up with a workable solution that will suit everybody's needs. You can do with less if you budget and organize wisely.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Discipline will pay off and help you get ahead personally. Changes at home as well as reviewing contracts, settlements, or financial matters will pleasantly surprise you. You can head down a new path that shows greater promise. Romance is on the rise.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be careful where you leave your possessions or cash. Protecting your assets from someone looking for a handout will be necessary. Don't be judgmental of others, but look out for your interests. Too much of anything will be your downfall.

Groundhog Day Observations:

• Why are people upset when the groundhog sees its shadow? If it's six more weeks of winter, then big deal; that still beats March 21 by a week.

• Truth be told, Groundhog Day is just preamble to the next big holiday, President's Day.

• Couldn't you just put a series of lights on Phil so that he couldn't cast a shadow no matter which way he looked? Let's get ILM working on this quandary, pronto.

• Maybe I'm just being cynical, but I hate how commercial Groundhog Day has become.

• To be fair, this is the one day each year that the residents of Punxsutawney can actually unload all those "Groundhogs Do It in the Dirt" bumper stickers they loaded up on during the Great Sticker boom of '88.

• Because it's like any other day, it might seem like you're living the Groundhog Day over and over, again.

• Because it's like any other day, it might seem like you're living the Groundhog Day over and over, again.

• No, it was NOT possible to not make that last joke.

• Question of etiquette: How long should I wait before taking down my Groundhog Day decorations?

• It's a sad truth that many people don't realize, but every year by St. Patrick's Day, there are tens of thousands of unwanted groundhogs clogging America's animal shelters.
