ARIES (March 21-April 19): Stick to what you know. You'll be criticized if you pretend to be something you are not. Rely on experience, and you will find a solution to a financial problem you face. Someone will want to reconnect. Proceed with caution.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Improving your surroundings will encourage you to entertain and do more with friends and family. Gather as much information as possible in order to advance personally and professionally. Don't be afraid to put pressure on someone who worries you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Let people know the changes you want to make with great honesty and integrity, and you will avoid being accused of being misleading. Not everyone will agree with you, but at least you can move forward without feeling you are being deceitful.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Memories and digging up old plans, goals, and projects will help you get rid of clutter and bring something you enjoying doing back to the forefront. Steady progress is apparent if you offer your help or solutions. Use your imagination.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't leave anything to chance. A change you want to make must not be implemented on impulse. Think each step through thoroughly. Cut your losses by handling a situation now that will discourage anyone who wants to oppose you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stick to your word, and go above and beyond the call of duty. Your actions will prove that you have what it takes to get things done. Don't let anyone put you down or stand in your way. Take credit for your accomplishments.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on picking up information. Get involved in courses, research, or conversations that will give you a better understanding of something that interests you. Begin an endeavor that will bring you satisfaction and financial gain.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put creative imagination into the way you handle your home and family. A day trip with someone you like to spend time with will help your relationship grow and improve your current lifestyle. An unusual opportunity will grab your attention.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make an important decision that will help jump-start what you want to pursue. Do whatever it takes to get your way. A residential move will lead to greater opportunities and financial stability. Discuss your plans with someone you love or respect.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Build a stronger portfolio. Sizing down or up depending on your circumstances could make a huge difference in the way you conduct your business and professional plans in the future. Avoid anyone who appears to be unpredictable or impulsive.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Protecting your assets and knowing exactly where you stand financially will help you make a wise decision regarding your home and family. Discuss your plans with someone who can benefit as much from you as you can in return.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Focus on creative and social activities that will enhance and encourage good friendships or partnerships to develop. Don't overdo it physically or financially. Indulging in risky ventures will cost you emotionally. Love is in the stars.

Things in life it is reasonable to be suspicious of:

• Sparkly vampires, women who read books about sparkly vampires, and men who go to fan club meetings and say they like books about sparkly vampires.

• People who claim to speak to aliens or your dead relative whose name begins with an M. Or maybe a J.

• Carnival rides that were clearly assembled by men who appear to be a prison work gang.

• Tea party members who explain the Constitution to you, tea party members who explain the health-care bill to you, and tea party members who … are, well, you know, tea party members.

• Russian women you meet on the Internet.

• "Only one previous owner who only drove it on the highway."

• Frequent flier miles.

• Things that claim to be shatterproof, things that claim to be bulletproof, and things that claim to be 180 proof. (Sure I won the bet, but nobody can explain to me why I woke up with a sprained ankle, a bag full of chicken feathers, and TV's Joey Lawrence.)

• Your girlfriend's platonic male friend. Not the one she had before she met you. The one she met after you started dating. The one who is just waiting for you to make that inevitable slip up … juuuussst one little mistake, Alex … I mean, generic boyfriend, and she's mine. I mean his.

• Psychics who need to charge for readings in order to make money (i.e., all of them.)

• TV actors. They say they'll call, but they never do. Jerks.
