ARIES (March 21-April 19): Adapting to what's going on around you is the best way to proceed. Once you get into the rhythm of the day you will encounter positive results. Re-evaluate partnerships, and back away from anyone who appears to be holding you back.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Refrain from making an impulsive decision based on emotional factors that can disrupt your position or earning power. Focus more on your attributes and how you can use them in order to get ahead. The power of persuasion will lead to victory.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Get involved, be a participant, and reach out to bring about changes in your community that you feel are necessary. Don't let uncertainty at work stop you from doing your best. Show versatility and set a good example.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Indecisiveness will work against you. Size up your situation, consider your options, and go forward without hesitation. Participating in an event or activity that brings you in contact with old colleagues or friends will enhance your day and your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Stay busy, and avoid trouble. A short trip will bring about change. Don't let anyone bully you into something you don't agree with. Do your part by contributing knowledge, ideas, and plans for the future. Make positive alterations at home.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will be entertaining, fun to be with, and a major contributor. Focus on love, romance, and socializing. The more interactive you are, the better. Relationships can be enhanced with a little effort. Self-improvement projects will pay off.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Expand your interests and your friendships, but don't go over budget. Protect your assets, and put more into your long-term investment. Strive to stabilize any contracts, settlements, or medical issues you face. Don't let emotions separate you from the people you love.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Recognize a problem, and do something about it before someone else does. Losing control of a personal situation will be to your detriment. Nurture what you have, and eliminate what isn't working for you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put greater emphasis on home, family, and what you know and do best. Make the domestic changes required to enhance your relationships with the people you live with. Networking will bring about a great opportunity. Offer your skills.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Unpredictable or emotional instability is apparent. Stick close to home, and take care of matters that will add to your security. Love is on the rise, and doing something nice for someone special will improve your relationship. Home improvements will pay off.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep a close eye on how the people around you react. Protect your belongings, and refrain from lending or borrowing possessions. A positive change in your position will develop if you take care of responsibilities swiftly. Don't neglect your health.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Taking care of money matters should be your mission. Changing your job or redoing your résumé will lead to bigger opportunities. Back away from anyone asking for too much and offering too little. Stick to a set budget.

Andrew R. Juhl, Professor of Letters:

• Dear All Fast-Food Restaurant Management: Do not hold job interviews in the booths in front of customers. It depresses the shit out of us, thanks.

• Dear Noise in My Neighborhood: You are either (a) a colicky newborn getting poked in the eye with a stick all day long or (b) a cat in heat not getting poked in the anything with an anything all day long. Whatever you are, please cease and desist. For the record, I somewhat like babies and absolutely adore cats, but this has been going on for about two weeks ago, so I'm about to go on a serious baby-punching/cat-kicking expedition. I mean that in the nicest way possible.

• Dear A Tribe Called Quest: Yes, of course you can kick it. The more important question is: "May you kick it?" And … yes, I believe you may.

• Dear Costco: Thank you for your excellent battery selection and low-low battery prices, yet I did incur an issue with my battery purchase that I thought you'd want to know about. I only required three AAA batteries. I was, of course, prepared to buy four AAA batteries, because that's usually how slimy battery companies choose to operate. However, your lowest quantity package included 60 HILLION-JILLION AAA batteries. NOBODY needs 60 hillion-jillion AAA batteries. That's literally 20 HILLION-JILLION TIMES AS MANY BATTERIES AS I NEEDED. This is obviously too many batteries. Thank you for your time.

Andrew R. Juhl thanks Jayne Sanderson and Matt Gorman for material in today's Ledge.
