LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put more emphasis on money, investments, legalities, and health issues. Protect what you have, and make sure you read the fine print of any agreement or document that needs your signature. A change may be desired, but it will also be costly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Volunteer your services, or take a serious approach to making a difference. Vocalize your position and your concerns; you will get a response. Don't settle for less when you can get so much more. Reconnect with people who share your beliefs.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't step back when you should protect your position. Make suggestions, and stand up to whatever competition you face. A high-spirited approach will show a unique and unexpected side of you that will leave an impression.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Being a participant will enable you to show your strengths. Getting involved in a cause or making your point heard will enhance your chance to take a lead position. Making a geographical move or even just expanding your interests will pay off.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional problems will set in if you are judgmental or if you aren't upfront about your feelings. Love is in the stars, but so is conflict. Caution must be taken if you are harboring feelings of uncertainty or a change of heart.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Consider your beliefs and where you see yourself in five years. Strategize, and get your plans in order. A partnership will weigh heavily in a decision you must make regarding your position or status. Speak up, and move forward.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Discipline will be required. Focus on personal relationships and property investments. A new deal is likely to improve your lifestyle and expand the possibility of achieving your dreams, hopes, and wishes for the future. Love is in the stars.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotional blackmail or deception may leave you in an awkward position. Don't jeopardize what you've worked so hard to obtain. Step back, be reasonable, and focus on making love, not war. Expand your options personally and financially.

Re-examining a few more well-known sayings:

• "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." Or at least that's what my cats tell me.

• "Variety is the spice of life." Also … salt. It's in everything.

• "Excuses are like noses: everybody's got one." Also: They come in handy if you have a bad cocaine habit.

• "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." At least, that's what the government wants you to believe by putting mind-controlling chemicals in our nation's corn syrup and talcum powder supplies since the '60s.

• "There's a thin line between love and hate." There's also a thin line between Speakboxxx and The Love Below. And between AC and DC. And between and and or. And between how funny this joke ever was to begin with and how tired its premise has now become.

• "Don't bite the hand that feeds you." Unless you went to a restaurant and ordered a hand.

• "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." It's only insane if you do it over and over again NINE times. Or 10 times. But not 11. ELEVEN is a prime number, and those are all SAFE. Isn't that right, Mr. Kitten Mittens?

Andrew R. Juhl isn't an idiom, you oxymoronic proverb.
