ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19): Don't get angry — get moving. Sitting around waiting for someone will only make you disgruntled. You'll make new acquaintances who have far more to offer if you get out and do things you enjoy or find interesting.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Reorganize and redefine what it is you want to accomplish. Getting together with people will lead to solutions if you collaborate. Love is on the rise and a union with someone you respect and admire will bring you added confidence.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't give in under pressure. If someone demands too much of you, put a stop to it. Taking on responsibilities that stand in the way of your own accomplishments will not benefit you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take the unusual route, or sign up for something that you know little about. Heading down an obscure path will enrich your life and bring you in contact with someone who fits your personality and personal desires perfectly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Concentrate on what needs to be done at home. Pay attention to money matters and the expenses you incur. Spend time making sure you stick to a well thought-out plan. Make your dollar stretch. Don't let pressure lead to impulse.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Share responsibilities with coworkers and personal partners. If you are willing to distribute work equally, you will build a solid relationship that will benefit you for years to come. Push for what you want, and you will receive.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Overreacting or taking on too much will be your downfall. Don't let your emotions lead you down a slippery slope. Controlling your emotions will be necessary if you don't want to damage a good working relationship.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take a break, and enjoy the people you like to spend time with most. Nurture your relationships with friends, your lover or your children. Getting involved in activities that inspire and motivate you will lead to creative projects and make new acquaintances.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Communication and travel will be costly. Listen, but don't start a feud with someone who doesn't share your opinions. Learn from what's being said, and question your beliefs. You may need to make a personal change.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Engage in activities that will allow you to readdress goals that you let fade away. Refuse to let anyone put pressure on you to do something you don't care to do. Plan your day based on your needs, not someone else's.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Go over your plans, and readdress the changes you must make to your personal papers in order to head in a direction that will bring you greater happiness at home. Family and finances should be at the top of your to-do list.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let your ideas grow, and develop a plan that will secure a better life for you and those you love. Make your assets grow, or cut losses by getting rid of deadweight. The moves you make now will help you prosper later.



Midterm Prep:

• Adam is sitting facing north on a southbound train traveling 45 mph, and Beth is sitting facing east on a northbound train traveling with a fuel efficiency of 12 mpg. If the trains start 56 miles apart, how ugly will Adam and Beth's children be?

• Charles' mutual fund has decreased in value at a compound rate of 4.9 percent per quarter for the last five quarters. Given that Charles is 49 years old today, how many Ambien does he have to take to fall asleep at night?

• Dick has 19 apples, 14 bananas, and three cantaloupes. Ethel has 22 apples, seven bananas, and eight cantaloupes. Why the hell do these people have so much fruit?

• Frank is 22 months younger than Gertrude. Gertrude is 14 months older than Henry, who was exactly half of Iris' age 6 years ago. Iris is a home-wrecking whore who stole Frank from Gertrude. How best should Gertrude exact revenge (be sure to use SI units only).

• Jacob has six coins that add up to 75 cents. Which can of soda should he purchase? (Remember to limit your answers only to diet soda, because Jacob has a weight problem.)

• Keisha's lunch tab is $14.73. Keisha's friend Lily is Keisha's waitress. Keisha has $15 in her purse. Which way should Keisha exit the restaurant so that Lily doesn't make eye contact with that lousy cheapskate?

• Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? (Separate answers required. Use the back of the page, but only if absolutely necessary.)
