ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take advantage of the changes going on around you. It's the perfect time to implement something into your schedule that you've always wanted to pursue. Don't limit what you can do. Being adaptable will result in personal opportunities.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Focus on money matters and how you can earn more. Upgrade your skills or take a course that will train you to do something specialized. Keeping a secret will protect you; telling a lie will not. Know your boundaries.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do something you feel passionate about, and you will be successful. Share your thoughts and plans with people who have something to contribute. Greater security can be yours, but get what you want in writing, because empty promises are apparent.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emotions will escalate based on the information you fall privy to receiving from an unreliable source. Don't jump to conclusions or make the mistake of acting too quickly. Put more into self-improvement projects, not trying to change others.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Problems dealing with a partner, lover, or your job will cause worry and anxiety. Answer questions cautiously to avoid jeopardizing your reputation. Honesty mixed with a little Leo charm and the willingness to compromise will improve your situation.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do your best to please others, and you will get favors in return. What you learn from participating in an exercise, seminar, or event will help you diversify what you have to offer. Don't let an emotional relationship stand between you and success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional matters will surface. Deception, misinterpretation, or mistaking what's actually intended or being offered to you will be a problem. Ask questions and do follow-up to avoid an error that can leave you or someone else in the lurch.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A short trip to visit an old friend, relative, or neighbor will help you learn more about your roots. You may want to rethink your strategy and come up with a plan that fits your changing lifestyle. A business partnership looks promising.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll gravitate toward adventure, but make sure that you don't spend or react impulsively. Being fair is the key to making the changes that will suit your needs, budget and whatever personal relationship you are in or contemplating.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make improvements to your surroundings. Discuss your plans with someone who shares your concerns and recognizes the importance of maintaining a strict budget. Don't let love turn into a costly situation. Invest in you, not in someone else.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Not everyone will be accommodating. Keep your plans a secret for the time being until you have worked out the details. Expanding your interests will lead to an encounter with someone who will become quite special to you. Love is highlighted.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to the people, places, and pastimes you know well. Be honest about the way you feel, and avoid anyone trying to pressure or use you to get ahead. Offer suggestions, but don't donate — invest or offer cash. Deception will lead to sorrow.

Proposal proposals:

• Pay to have the message placed in Monday's crossword puzzle. (And if she can't solve the puzzle? Well, then she's not marriage material.)

• Work it into a delightful game of Hangman.

• Go to an Iowa football game, and switch the I, O, W, and A flags with WILL, YOU, MARRY, and ME flags. (Nobody will notice. Trust me.)

• If she works with you, put it in a memo and give it to her. ("I'm gonna need you to come in this weekend and take care of this. Yeah … that'd be great.")

• Propose at a graduation. (There's already a stage, a built-in crowd, and numerous planned celebrations afterwards; she'll appreciate your practicality.)

• Duct tape Twizzlers that spell it out on the windshield of her car. (Watch those Rs; they can be tricky.)

• Sidewalk chalk. It's cheap and it'll disappear after a bit of bad weather. (Just like your marriage, you despicably horrible person. I mean, how could you? She was your wife's BEST FRIEND.)

• Do it while you two are playing any game in which score is close and you might lose.

• Get a garden, and grow her favorite flowers in her favorite colors. Once they are grown, send her to a day spa. While she's gone, tie the flowers around a metal grating that spells out "Will you marry me?" When she returns home, light your creation on fire. Makes 'em cry. Every time.
