ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make a deal that counts. Look over your investments, a contract, or a settlement or close a deal. Rearrange your living space to suit your needs. Expand your interests and your friendships. Personal changes will boost your confidence.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Share your emotions, and offer your support to those in need. Romance is highlighted, and a close encounter is likely if you watch for the signals that someone is sending you. A short trip or attending an event will raise your profile.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep an even disposition regardless of what you encounter. An argument will not solve anything and will probably be based on false information. Bring about positive change that will improve your community or help you advance.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your drive and determination will impress someone. Love and romance are on the rise, and being a participant will help you explore new possibilities. Self-improvement will lead to compliments and opportunities. An innovative idea of yours should be presented.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your thoughts a secret, and explore new possibilities. Making a change at home will encourage a new beginning or lifestyle, but doing so with great thought and finesse will be required if you want to be successful.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): An unusual connection or information will help you view life differently. Opening up about the way you feel or regarding a cause you believe in will bring you greater experience and know-how to find solutions. Don't let what others do discourage you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Use whom you know and what you know to get ahead. Expect someone to interfere, and be prepared to outmaneuver anyone who tries to come between you and your success. An original approach coupled with Libra charm should help you get ahead.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make changes at home that are conducive to pursuing a goal you set. Living in an unusual setting or adjusting your routine will give you a chance to explore something you love to do. Romance is on the rise.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fight for what you want but don't exaggerate in order to get it. Excess will lead to trouble. Sizing down and cutting back will bring you greater freedom to enjoy the people, pastimes, and places you enjoy most.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look for the best deal, and you will find it. Spending more time with peers will help you become more diverse with work-related projects. Avoid any impulsive moves involving relationships or your home. Offer help — a reward will follow.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do your research, learn all you can, explore your options, and mingle with people who have something to offer. A problem with regard to your position must be handled uniquely and with consideration. A change of location may be required.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Express minimalism in all that you do. Find a way to get more for less using creativity and a hands-on attitude. You will impress someone who offers love and support if you live in the moment and act with compassion. Love is highlighted.

A partial list of things I should probably tell every prospective girlfriend:

• It's almost impossible for me to eat without getting a stain on my shirt. This is why I will always prefer we go to restaurants that allow us both to eat topless.

• I am the same weight and height as the average NFL defensive lineman. This means I am in fantastic shape. This infallible logic does not translate to you.

• I will let you go on believing it is the dog who is farting until the dog finally dies. Then I will try to persuade you that it is YOU who is farting.

• Once, I ate a baked potato like an apple because I was too lazy to do the dishes. (OK, this one is a lie. The potato was raw.)

• 10th century Norseman King Olaf Guthfrithsson is a role model to me, if only insofar as I hope to also one day be described as having "died while ravaging."

• I hate to brag, but I can pretty much always tell when the toast is about to be done.

• I'm not a fancy man; I don't know the difference between extravagant things like Welsh terriers, miniature schnauzers, real feelings of love, and the desire not to die cold and alone.
