ARIES (March 21-April 19): Home improvements and domestic expenditures will be tempting, but think twice before you spend money. Downsizing instead of adding to your overhead is preferable. Self-improvement projects or investing in your skills and your future are more advisable.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make contact with people who have something to offer you. A chance to share ideas, travel to unfamiliar places, or explore new opportunities should be the focus of your day. Help will come from an unusual source.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Spend more time and money fixing up your digs and making personal improvements that will benefit you professionally. An unusual approach to the way you do business or the way you earn your living will interest someone who can influence your future.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be careful how you handle friends, peers, and family. Not everyone will play fairly. Don't allow emotions to be your driving force. You must stick to practical solutions if you don't want to face an upsetting response from someone you thought you could count on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your plans a secret until you are prepared to put them into play. Bring about the changes you want to instill quickly. An unpredictable turn of events will occur if you don't follow rules. Don't leave room for error.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your increased willpower, coupled with your desire to improve, will help you get ahead. Establish a good rapport with individuals who have something to offer.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Partnerships will pose a problem for you. Don't make changes without getting the go-ahead first. Someone is likely to exert pressure or become pushy should you try to take control. Don't argue over something minor. Bide your time, and make your words count.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Explore new avenues, interests, people, and places. Your mind will be in overdrive, and the information you pick up will help you make decisions that will improve your life and the way you live. An unusual domestic change will be to your benefit.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Renovate, redecorate, or make changes that will add to your assets. Approaching an organization that can offer you an opportunity to advance will be gratifying. A chance to travel or visit a destination you've never been to before is preferable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What you do for others will put you in a favorable position. Don't let the changes someone else makes cause you grief. Move in your own direction, and pursue the goals that will lead to your professional and personal success.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18): Your attraction to people from different backgrounds must not lead you in a direction that limits your freedom or ability to reach your goals. Love is on the rise, but it must not interfere with your professional plans.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Go over your plans and personal papers. There is money to be made if you choose your direction with practicality in mind. Protect your assets, and build a future based on what's most important to you.


Sometimes, one needs to
burn a bridge down to keep from
crossing it again.

So often we fight
about what we fight about,
and nobody wins.

Thousands of people
I ne'er had the chance to know
but will never forget.

Who be the smarter?
Our Intelligent Designer,
or his inventor?

These times we live in.
The status quo keeps changing.
But what else is new?

The ring didn't fit.
Perhaps, thinking back on it,
that was a good clue.

Car window broken,
but nothing appears stolen.
Not that Allstate knows …

Signs of age mounting.
Calling events eight months past
"just the other day."

Lou Gerhig's disease
took both my grandpas away,
so I'm a Met fan.

You're a B-U-T.
Can't you see that I-Y-Q?
I would W.

taking them makes me fatter,
which makes me depressed.

Andrew R. Juhl,
you should write him a haiku;
he did so for you.
