GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Use your intelligence and knowledge to clear up unfinished business. Personal conversations will help to establish what you can expect from the people you share your private life with and help you learn what is expected of you in return. Don't gossip.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Face an emotional situation head-on, and avoid an encounter that is a waste of your time. Being overly generous will not solve a problem. Communicate honestly, and get your point across. Don't worry about what others think.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Explore your options, and travel to places that offer knowledge, experience, and opportunity. Do your own fact-finding, and stick to your guidelines, principles, and set plans. Don't let indulgence be your downfall. Someone will be dishonest with you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take action, and impress everyone with your talents and skills. Fundraising, volunteer work, or lending a helping hand will make you feel good as long as you don't let anyone take advantage of you financially or emotionally. Love is highlighted.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Review the past to avoid making the same mistake twice. Impulsive actions will be your downfall. Take your time, even if someone is pressuring you. Focus on creative endeavors that you can pursue at your own speed. Don't spend foolishly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Know what's expected of you, and tend to your responsibilities first so you can focus on more engaging pastimes. Love and romance, along with favorable changes at home, will improve your outlook and future. Honesty and integrity must be maintained.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ask pertinent questions until you fully understand what's expected of you. Someone will withhold information. A problem with a friend, neighbor, or relative will burden you with added responsibilities. Back away if the stakes are too high.

Things I've thought while watching horror movies:

• We need to capture Jason Vorhees and steal his teleportation technology.

• He's a 7-foot-tall guy who can tomahawk-throw an ax more than 100 yards … Did you really expect that hitting him with a broom handle would accomplish anything?

• You heard a window break downstairs and then the power went out … and you're investigating this why, exactly?

• Every well-trained, gun-equipped police officer in who ahs crossed the killer's path has died immediately, yet you, a 103-pound teenage girl, were able to fight him off and escape? Sure, makes sense.

• So your boyfriend went downstairs to get some wine 10 minutes ago, and he's still not back? Clearly, this is an opportune time to take a shower.

• You just locked yourself in a bathroom with only one entrance. Didn't think that one through too well, huh?

• Whenever the monster saw anyone else, it devoured them right away, but for some reason, it decided to get really close to your face and sniff you before trying to eat you, only to be foiled? Zoologically improbable at best.

• A lot of people don't understand Michael Myers, but I can totally relate the character. I know that if my sister had shot me in the head with a magnum, I'd still be alive, too.

• So every townsperson's first piece of advice upon meeting you was "Don't go into the woods at night," and yet, you somehow felt the need to do just that? Good riddance, idiot.

• You were dead sprinting through the pitch black woods; of course you fell.
