ARIES (March 21-April 19): Relax, gather information, and plan to make changes, but don't act in haste. Bide your time, and observe how others react toward you before you make an assumption or do something that's irreversible. Respond responsibly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Focus on projects or hobbies that you enjoy. A short trip will bring about new ideas and possibilities. Love is highlighted, so be sure to let someone you love know exactly how you feel. Greater stability should be your target.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep your secrets to yourself. The less information you share, the better. Take care of your legal, financial, or medical issues, and tie up any loose ends you might have with corporations, institutions, or people in charge. A positive change awaits you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take on responsibilities, and you will gain greater insight into the way others think and do things. What you may discover through helping others is how lucky you are and skillful when it comes to lending a helping hand. Love is highlighted.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll fall into a trap if you are too boisterous or generous with your time or money. Opposition and trouble can be expected if you are too open regarding your plans. A change of scenery will do you good.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enjoy the company of others. Take a day trip, and visit people who inspire you or share your interests. A geographical change will open up food for thought regarding your future prospects. Information about your family background will be beneficial.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Update personal papers. A real-estate deal or property investment has great potential. Being diverse and offering your skills or services in unusual ways will open up new opportunities. A change will help you initiate plans for the future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Nurture important relationships. Understanding the pluses you bring to any relationship as well as what is offered in return will help you build a solid, long-lasting union. Love is on the rise, and a romantic evening should be planned.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Uncertainty regarding an opportunity must not get you down. Instead, look at your options, and prepare to make a move regardless of how your current situation unfolds. A change at home will benefit you emotionally and financially.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put your home and domestic situation at the top of your list. Fix whatever needs fixing. Do whatever it takes to make your place more comfortable and user-friendly. Planning or launching a garage sale will pay off.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do whatever it takes to make you happy. A change at home or reverting to someone or something you enjoyed being with should be your goal. Back away from anyone you think might have ulterior motives.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Daydream, plan, and follow through with actions. Let your imagination lead the way, and you'll discover something you enjoy doing that can also bring in extra cash. Your intuition will not let you down. Love is in the stars. You must follow your heart.



Things Freshmen Should Have Learned By Now:

• You don't need to raise your hand to ask the professor of your 150-student lecture if you may use the restroom.

• You don't need to bring notes from your mom explaining why you missed the previous class.

• There is no such thing as a "clique" in college — except the annoyingly loud people in the back corner of each lecture hall … the athletes … the sorority girls … the frat guys … the Honors students … the… OK, I'm wrong.

• You don't need to text under your desk; the professor won't take your phone to the principal. You may, however, be called-out in front of the 97 other students doing the exact same thing.

• Course evaluations are your opportunity to tell your professor her dog sweaters are hideous, her exams are a pain in the ass, and her eyebrows need tweezing.

• That's not a cold sore.

• If your TA doesn't know your name by the third discussion, chances are he never will and you can just forget about getting any participation points. Or his cell number.

• The Pentacrest Cambus, despite what its name may imply, does not go around and around the Pentacrest all day.

• There are no assigned seats, meaning you really don't have to sit next to the tweaked-out guy in the corner. So if you keep doing so, don't bitch about it.

• Starting a term paper five hours before it's due doesn't mean you're a bad person or a procrastinator; it means you're fuhmazing because you get 'er done.
