ARIES (March 21-April 19): Share your experience, and make a point to communicate and participate in events that will help you broaden your knowledge as well as your friendships. Making personal alterations will result in good fortune. Believe in yourself; follow through.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pay more attention to what you say and how you present yourself and how you look. The impression you leave will make a difference to what you are invited to attend or join in the future. Love is highlighted.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick to the truth. If you keep changing your mind, someone will get suspicious. Put in an honest effort and be responsible. Do something nice for someone, but don't give in to pressure or bullying. Avoid emotional manipulation.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Follow your imagination, and you'll come up with solutions or ideas that will help you gain respect and support. Getting involved in events or activities that contribute to your knowledge and skills will also lead to worthwhile new friendships.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll gather information if you attend a conference, seminar, or any event that will broaden your skills, knowledge or experience. Don't let love stand between you and your professional goals. A change of pace, location, or activities will do you good.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Finish what you start, and honor promises made. A costly mistake will unfold if you allow someone to push you into a risky joint venture or investment. Put more time and effort into honing your skills and updating your appearance.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Think big, and make the changes that will keep you happy. Knowledge will be the key to getting ahead. Attend any event that offers you greater experience or get involved in a personal journey that will expand your interests.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Instigate whatever it is that will help you get one step closer to your goals. Readdress any financial or medical problems that have been lingering on for too long. Put love on the line, and make your needs and your intentions clear.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Reassess your personal relationships. Curb spending habits, or rearrange your living space to accommodate your plans. Don't sit idle when it's up to you to make things happen. Ask for help, or call in a favor. Trust in your judgment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Bide your time, observe what everyone else does, and refrain from jeopardizing your position. Once you make a move, it will be hard to reverse your situation. Be sure or sit tight. Mental and physical confrontations are possible.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Follow through with your plans. Update what you have developed or considered doing in the past, and you will find a way to incorporate your skills into something worthwhile. There is money to be made, but you must go through the proper channels.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Persuasion will draw the support you need to move forward with your plans. Love is on the rise, but indulgence will come between you and your happiness if you aren't careful. Discipline and moderation are the keys to your success.

A partial list of things I should probably tell every prospective girlfriend:

• I wholly support Bike to Work Week, but only because it opens up so many more parking spaces closer to the entrance.

• I have literally tens of dozens of pet peeves. It's really more of a zoo of peeves. A fantastic zoo, filled with exotic, one-of-kind, and some nearly extinct species of peeves. Don't feed the bears.

• If you don't want me taking my pants off in your house, then don't tell me to make myself at home.

• Panda Express is by absolute favorite fast-food chain in the world. I eat there every chance I get. The food is so well cooked and flavored that I don't feel even the least bit bad about eating so many pandas.

• To prevent thievery of my pens at work, I keep all my used-up and bad pens in a decoy pen jar in plain sight.

• Whenever I come within sight of a staircase with banisters, you will need to warn me not to get my head stuck between said banisters.

• If you are unable to proffer this cautionary advice in a stern and prompt manner, then you will need to be in the habit of keeping a sharpened handsaw at the ready.

• I cannot eat a salad in polite company without grossing at least six people out. I consume leafy greens in a distinctly tortoise-like fashion.

• Sometimes I'm convinced that I'm being followed by ninjas, but I have no way of knowing for sure.
