ARIES (March 21-April 19): Cutting corners will not turn out well. Pay attention to detail, and go the extra mile. It's better to be considered an overachiever, especially if you want to make an impression on someone who influences your income. Love is on the rise.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If you want something, ask for it. Favors will be granted, and they can make your life easier. New acquaintances will lead to interesting groups and pastimes that will allow you to pick up new skills or explore diverse ways of using your talents.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Taking on the impossible will make you look back. You may want to follow a creative path, but making sure it is also practical will be what counts. Too much of anything will slow you down. Keep whatever you do simple.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make an impression. Speak up, call the shots, and take over. A partnership will form with someone with as much to offer as you. A change in the way you do things must not be made on a whim. Concentrate on using your attributes.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Added responsibilities can be expected if you are in either a business or personal partnership. Keep tabs on expenditures and contracts that are coming up for renewal. You can lower your overhead if you are diligent in your dealings.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Conflicts are best dealt with quickly. Size up your situation, and make your move before someone takes advantage of you. Talks must be kept cordial, or nothing will be resolved. Back away from anyone showing a temper instead of reason.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Interact with people from different backgrounds or network with individuals you find motivating or inspiring. Love is on the rise and opportunities will come into play if you partner with someone aspiring to reach similar goals. A partnership will change your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make plans to improve your home and personal relationships. You don't have to spend to win someone's attention. Focus on spending less and stabilizing your financial future. Communication will help you find peace through shared solutions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Back away from anyone asking for the impossible. Trust issues are apparent, and listening carefully to what's being said will help you bypass getting involved in a fiasco. Make changes at home that will add to your comfort and happiness.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Revisit past problems and experiences, and you will know how to deal with someone who is being impulsive or erratic. Too much of anything will lead to trouble. Gauge your time and your intake when it comes to socializing or accommodating others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Set strict rules, and focus on what you want to accomplish. Don't let personal problems dictate what you can and cannot do. It's important that your motives are right and that you are honest about what you want to pursue. Opportunity knocks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Set goals that will improve your financial position. There is money to be made if you follow your intuition and your creative vision. Help will be offered if you lay out your strategy for someone with a good eye, wisdom, and experience to view.

Know your Ledge author:

• 70 percent of the television I watch is on USA, and I hate myself. Correlation implies causality in this case, I believe.

• I had a dream last night wherein the rules of zombiedom were redefined. Instead of immediately turning over to zombiehood, you were given one day to kill a dozen people as a regular human. If you failed, you got zombafied. If you succeeded, you were bestowed superhuman abilities, such as flawless hand/eye coordination, impeccable driving skills, and practical invincibility. The one catch to these abilities were that they ceased working once you crossed an invisible border, and that border was pretty ill-defined and constantly shifting, so you had to be really careful about how you used your powers. I used them mainly to rescue kittens.

• I like being in grad school. It's cool to be able to put all my "A" homework on the refrigerator again. Only … I need stronger magnets. And better grades. And to turn in a paper first.

• I eat a lot of mac & cheese. Some people, namely friends and family and other people who care about me, see to think I eat "too much" mac & cheese. These people say I have a problem. But I don't have a problem. I can stop eating mac & cheese anytime I please. And I told them so at their little "intervention." Right before I ate some more mac & cheese, punched a hole in the wall, then passed-out and peed all over the futon.
