ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't be afraid to act impulsively when it comes to presenting and promoting what you want to do. Share your beliefs and feelings in both your personal and your professional life. You can make a difference if you follow your heart.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put your needs first, and you won't be disappointed. If something needs to be done, make the first move. Putting demands on others will result in hard feelings. Focus on what you can offer your friends, relatives, and your community.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Work on your relationships at home. Make domestic changes that will improve your life. A trip or reunion will bring you in touch with someone from your past. Proceed with caution. Taking a backward step is not a wise choice.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Find out what you need to learn in order to change your direction. Talk to someone you admire or trust about your dreams. Expanding your interests and making improvements to what you do well will pay off.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put a huge push behind the things you want to accomplish. Don't let anyone stand in your way. Go after what you deserve, and don't stop until you get it. Secret affairs or plans can lead to an interesting and wise investment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Listen to what's being said and offered, but don't be too quick to respond. Ulterior motives are apparent and must be dealt with before you sign up or give your word. A change of heart may end up costing you financially.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't be a wimp. Someone will take advantage of you if you try to keep the peace. Sometimes you have to fight back in order to get what you deserve. Put your heart on the line, and speak up.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let your imagination soar, and put your energy and creative ideas and plans into motion. A short trip or making alterations to your living space will improve your lifestyle. Protect your mental and physical health. Put yourself first.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll have a change of heart if someone in your life is becoming too predictable. Make plans to liven things up. A trip or a philosophical journey can open doors to interesting new friendships. Embrace life, and live in the moment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can recover some of the losses you've incurred in the past if you make a move or revamp a contract that has been weighing you down financially or emotionally. Open up to a partner, and put stress behind you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Concentrate on relationships and what it will take to improve the connection you have with someone who influences your options. Taking action will help you make the choices that suit your needs instead of someone else's. Enhance your love life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Mingle and engage in conversations with people heading in a similar direction as you. Appeal to the creative and unusual side of people who might be able to contribute to your goals. A colleague or peer will make an unexpected move.

In Which I Battle Valiantly:

ARJ: Hark! I come to make copies of my taxes for the Office of Financial Aid.

Copy Machine: Dubious! I will make you HALF of a copy, then paper jam in FOUR PLACES! AH-HAHAHA!

ARJ: Vile Machine, I shall vanquish these paper jams posthaste and continue my copying.

CM: You'll not get the better, Grad Student! BEHOLD!! I have loosed a part of my very self onto the floor! A PART YOU ARE POWERLESS TO IDENTIFY!

ARJ: Verily. And yet ... said part seems unimportant. I shall simply kick it under the nearby filing cabinet and continue my work.

CM: Nay, Foe of Foes! I resist, and I disallow you to fully close the paper drawer! Can you o'ercome such an INSIDIOUS EQUIPMENT FAILURE?

ARJ: Forsooth, I cannot. It is with grievous contempt that I must seek the help of another.

CM: Cackle and Guffaw! Forever RUE the day you came to me, the Copy Machine, for your copy-making needs!

Aged Librarian: Allow me to render aid to you, good Sir? My merest touch will cow this recalcitrant contraption.

CM: Oh, Aged Librarian, I am powerless against your wiles, and I shall function properly for you.

ARJ: Fiend! That you should behave so well in the presence of another. I'll suffer this slight not lightly. Now I make my leave, but I'll ne'er forget this treachery in all my days, Devil Machine!
