ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will be tempted to overspend in order to buy love or make an impression. Refrain from playing games with loved ones. Be responsible, or you will face criticism. It's up to you to do what's right. Impulsiveness must be avoided.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Nurture partnerships, and do your best to fulfill your end of any bargain you make. Don't allow emotional issues to upset what you need to accomplish. Problems dealing with institutions or while traveling can be expected. Stick close to home.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Contact people you have worked with in the past, and you will find out valuable information. A service you have to offer should be made more enticing. Rework your presentation, and greater success can be yours.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Question your situation, and formulate your options. Don't act in haste or make a decision based on secondhand information. Rely on your intuition, and show discipline when dealing with temptation. Participate in something you believe in. Love is on the rise.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Share your ideas, and make suggestions that will help the people you encounter — you will discover a way to mix business with pleasure and come out on top. Don't let an emotional incident ruin your plans.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put a little extra time and effort into your appearance. You'll discover something you enjoy doing that can be turned into a profitable endeavor. Love and romance are in the stars, and socializing will enhance your personal life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expect to face someone who is trying to make you feel guilty. Think outside the box, and you will come up with a solution that give you the freedom to do as you please. A partnership will play an important role in your future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Use greater creativity on the job. Taking an idea and turning it into something spectacular will make some of your peers jealous, but the actions will also give you the push you need to advance. Your kindness and optimism must be your driving force.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take care of domestic issues. Make decisions that will lead to home improvements or greater comfort. Socializing with friends and peers will allow you to show your leadership ability. Take charge; you'll make an impression.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't make a promise you can't keep. Expect someone to disappoint you. Take care of home and family, but don't allow anyone to disrupt your plans. Problems will occur because of an unexpected situation or change. Think before you speak.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't be afraid to change your direction or reinvent what you have to offer. Go over past successes, and you will discover a common denominator. Home improvements will open up options you hadn't considered in the past.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Use your skills wisely. Take part in activities or events that allow you to show off what you have to offer. Contracts can be negotiated and settlements completed. Love is on the rise, but don't let someone from your past complicate matters.

We hold these truths to be self-evident (and a little nerdy):

• DeForest Kelley hated Arbor Day. It didn't have anything to do with his name; a tree killed his parents.

• "I wanna pound you like a trending hashtag." Isn't very likely to work as a pickup line. But if it does, you've got yourself a true keeper.

• Captain Hook was a pessimist. Had he been an optimist, he would have been Captain One Perfectly Good Hand.

• I AM NOT a nerd because I saw a spider in my condo and the only thing nearby with enough heft to kill it was a copy of Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows. I AM a nerd because I shouted "Avada Kedavra" while killing it. There's a difference, here, and it matters.

• I hope Man of Steel gives Superman's origin story. I've always wondered what it was.

• If the price of silver climbs much higher, the average American family is going to have to make some hard decisions about whether it's more important to put food on the table or be properly prepared for the inevitable werewolf invasions.

• I bet a one-night stand with Indiana Jones is both the best and worst one-night stand in a woman's life. The best because he's manly, experienced, intelligent, and good with a whip. The worst because you'd roll over in the morning, only to hug a similarly weighted bag of sand.
