ARIES (March 21-April 19): Patience will be required, and keeping pushy people at bay necessary. Evaluate whatever situation you encounter before reacting. Concentrate on making alternate plans if someone disrupts what you are trying to accomplish. Secure your position and your reputation.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Listen to what's being said and offered. You will be able to make a move that will surprise some and delight others. Collaborating with someone unique or quite different from you will open up new opportunities for future endeavors.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Quick decisions must be based on fact, not fiction. Go over contracts carefully, and flush out any fine print that may cause problems for you at a later date. Being proactive will enable you to stay ahead of any competition you face.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keeping a steady pace will ensure success. What you do for others will bring rewards. Use your imagination, and you will impress someone you'd like to get to know better. Love and romance are highlighted, and special plans should be made.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Watch what's going on around you. Someone may try to give you a false impression — ulterior motives are apparent. You may have to change your plans to avoid getting trapped into doing something you don't want to do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Use your knowledge and expertise to get ahead. Step into the spotlight, and you'll impress everyone with your ideas, plans, and presentation. Social networking will bring you in contact with someone spectacular. Don't overspend. Love is in the stars.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't give in. Instead, make the changes that will ensure you reach your goals. Uncertainty regarding a partnership should be handled with caution. Back away from anyone trying to control or take over. Think outside the cubicle, and do your own thing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You'll have plenty of options and lots to do. Partnership changes can be beneficial if you state what you want and stick to your plan. Follow your intuition when dealing with domestic situations. Renovations will be tiresome but worthwhile.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Accept the inevitable, and keep moving. Open up to business or personal partners, and you will be able to come up with solutions that will make everyone happy. Love is heading in your direction, so plan something romantic.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Set your goals high, and strive for perfection, detail, and taking over whatever you pursue. Making alterations at home will make your surroundings more comfortable and enhance your relationships with the special people in your life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Listen, but don't respond. Keep your plans a secret until you are ready to make your move. Expanding your living quarters or making domestic changes will give you greater maneuverability to pursue one of your goals. Don't fold under pressure.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your goals, friends, and business associates will keep you busy. The timing for something you may have shelved in the past can be reopened. An interview will lead to a new beginning. Creative accounting will be necessary. Love is highlighted.

Deadly Procrastination Combinations:

• Facebook + Wine: As if they weren't bad enough alone, the liquid confidence from a half sack of Franzia is enough to make you drop the calc homework and finally post that your friend's profile pic with his new moustache makes him look like a Nazi.

• Wikipedia + Coffee: Bet you never thought you'd be so inclined to open 30 tabs concerning gout, huh?

• Your Bro-est Friend + Xbox live: You know you'll be up into the wee hours, getting cussed out by 8-year-olds while your friend takes a drink every time he manages to "pwn a noob." It's all right, Econ homework, you'll probably seem more interesting with water and Advil.

• Boredom + Oven: I may not be hungry, but I've had this muffin mix since I moved in, and that lab report isn't due for 10 whole hours …

• Construction Paper + Crayons: Maybe your TA would actually prefer that abstract portrait of a green and purple monkey-powered rocket ship you've been doodling for the last hour instead of a 12-page report on wind farms. If not, the fridge could use some flair.

• IMDB + *The Fifth Element*: Before you have to ask, yes Gary Oldman is … "Zorg" as well as Sirius Black. Interestingly enough, he was also "Ben" from the 1984 TV series "Dramarama." Too bad my newfound scholarly knowledge of Gary Oldman kept me from studying probability and statistics. (3 to 1 odds against me studying later tonight.)
