ARIES (March 21-April 19): Express your concern, but don't dictate what you want done. You will face opposition, and you will have to compromise in order to get the best results. A contract, settlement, or even a change of residence are all possibilities.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Give whatever you want to do your very best shot. Opportunity will present itself if you make a good impression. Your love life appears to be heading in a positive direction. Connecting with an old friend will open up new prospects.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Express what you want carefully. You are likely to be misinterpreted or send the wrong signal. It's important to put situations in perspective before you share your thoughts. Making a last-minute change will save you from making a mistake.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Learn to accept what you cannot stop or change. Put your heart into any job or project you take on, and you will surpass your expectations. A financial upswing will help boost your confidence. Love is highlighted.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Embrace change, and be prepared to engage in whatever it takes to get what you want. Keeping a low profile will allow you to accomplish more without interference. Plan a trip that favors education, information, or professional advancement.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Contributions you make will increase your popularity. Engaging in activities or groups that promise to improve causes you believe in will bring you enjoyment. New partnerships will benefit you personally and professionally. Avoid impulsive or unpredictable people or financial ventures.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will face plenty of do-gooders trying to persuade you of one thing or another. Look at what you are trying to accomplish, and keep your plan simple. Slow but steady growth is your best bet. Don't mix business with pleasure.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let your mind wander, and look for solutions that go with the current economic climate — you will find a way to increase your earning power and improve your prospects for the future. Embrace change that encourages you to use your skills diversely.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Proceed with caution. You don't want to be blamed for meddling or exaggerating the truth. Stick to simple and moderate expenditures, and put more effort into building your own resources instead of investing in someone else. Avoid impulsive action.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look at the big picture, but don't try to do everything at once or on your own. Size up your situation, and gauge how long and what it will take to accomplish your goals. Look for solid partnerships and reliable contributors.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Prepare to take action. Prove your potential first, and you will get others to back you. A chance to engage in a challenge or to travel to a location or project that favors your skills will help you advance. Love is highlighted.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Network and socialize, and you will learn something new that will help you attract friendships and partnerships. Let your creative imagination lead the way, and you will dazzle those you meet with your plans. Help is on the way, and love is on the rise.



Rock Misconceptions (1/2):

• To date, NASA scientists have discovered 42 distinct ways to rock — substantially more than Sammy Hagar's purported 1.

• Rock 'n' roll can indeed be noise pollution; just ask Manuel Noriega.

• Even at its height, KISS rarely wanted to rock 'n' roll past 11 p.m. after partying every day.

• A good portion of the smaller towns in the U.S.A. prefer C.O.U.N.T.R.Y.

• God did not give rock and roll to you; it was actually Bastet, the Egyptian cat deity.

• While the Scorpions never rocked a groupie as hard as a Hurricane, the bass player did manage one Nor'easter-like evening on the American leg of its 1986 tour.

• Johnny "Fingers" McGee refused to dance to the "Jail House Rock."

• Rick Derringer failed to persuade anyone to drop out and spread the news due to the undefined nature of the "Hoochie Koo" illness. The NIH currently suspects Hoochie Koo is actually a catch-all term for a pair of serious (often concomitant) maladies first described by Huey Smith in 1957: Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu.

• Jon Bon Jovi didn't rock every face he saw; his best year was actually 1991, when is face-rocking average was a hefty .347.

Andrew R. Juhl thanks Tim Daly (not that one) for today's Ledge idea, as well as various friends for contributing ideas and feedback.
