ARIES (March 21-April 19): Reduce stress and refrain from letting anyone put pressure on you. An introspective look at who you are, what you have accomplished and where you want to go next will help you pave the way to a brighter future. Embrace change.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't let your emotions cloud your vision. You have everything in place and can reach your goals if you set your course and refuse to let anything lead you astray. Collaborating with someone exceptional will encourage you to excel.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't count on anything until it happens. Someone you count on will disappoint you. Prepare to compensate for the shortcomings or lack of experience you face due to an empty promise or exaggeration. False information is prevalent.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Step outside your comfort zone and you will be surprised at what you can accomplish. Challenges will prove that you are capable of making the most of any situation you face. Love is on the rise and a romantic evening should be planned.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotions will spin out of control if you aren't willing to accept what transpires. Don't worry about what you cannot change. Put distance between you and those making you question what to do next; head in a direction that offers greater rewards.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look for an outlet that will ease your stress. Spending time with someone you find comforting will help you relax. A work-related problem will be resolved if you take an innovative suggestion and apply it to your situation.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Find a destination or a plan that will guide you in a new direction. Learning, travel and experiencing something that will help you handle upcoming events should be considered. Interacting with others will encourage you to expand your interests.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't let the little things bother you. You have so much going for you that wasting time over trivial or petty remarks would be a travesty. Embrace love, life and everything that promises a brighter and happier future.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make the necessary alterations at home that will ensure you have a comfortable place to hide out. Too much interaction with others will lead to meddling and a no-win situation that will leave you in an awkward position.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Prepare to try something new. Attending a reunion or collaborating with people you haven't worked with in a long time will open up doors to future investments and opportunities. Love is highlighted, and making the first move encouraged.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Face each situation head-on. Reveal your true feelings. You may be faced with opposition, but in the end you will end up exactly where you want to be. It's a new day, and an opportunity for change is apparent.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look beyond what others do or say. Know in your heart what you want and don't lose sight of your goals. You can stabilize your position and your financial security by making the right choice. Follow your heart.

Trivia Goodness, it's Friday:

• Astrologically speaking, Friday is associated with both Venus, goddess of love, and Taurus, the bull. So go celebrate this Friday by making love to a bull (or having sex in a Ford Taurus, if that's how you swing).

Friday is the title of a 1995 dramatic comedy film starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, with two pragmatically named sequels: Almost Unwatchable Piece of Crap and Holy Jesus Lord, My Eyes Are Burning.

• Detective Joe Friday is the main character of the decades-old Dragnet franchise. The character was first portrayed by Jack Webb, then Dan Akroyd, and most recently by Ed O'Neill. That's the Hollywood character-treatment equivalent of marrying someone, only to later run him over with a car and then sell his corpse to a dog-food company.

• TGIF was a two-hour block of comedy programming that ran for a total of 14 seasons during the Friday night prime-time hours on ABC. If you'd like to learn more about the family-friendly sitcoms that populated TGIF, just tune into E! True Hollywood Story.

• Friday Mourning is a Christian rock band with wicked good sense for naming bands and wicked bad sense for picking musical genres I give a damn about.

• "Friday" is the one-word moniker of an adult-film actress who also goes by the singular pseudonym "Elizea" for her more legitimate roles. You may recognize her work in such films as Alien Love Fantasy, Backseat Confidential, Call Girl Confidential, Escort Confidential, Juggernauts 8, Pimped by an Angel 2, Schindler's List, and Yeah I Totally Just Wanted a Reason to Print Some Titles of Porn Movies.
