ARIES (March 21-April 19): Overindulgence and overreacting will not pay off when it comes to domestic affairs. You are best to listen to what’s being proposed and to weigh the pros and cons carefully before you make a commitment that you may find confining.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Strive for perfection. Turn an idea into a profitable venture. Promote and present plans — you will get support. Romance is in the picture, and putting time aside to spend with someone you care for will enhance your relationship.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Mixing business with pleasure is likely to jeopardize your job. Focus on what you can do for others, and you will advance. A quick but practical response will put you in a favorable position regarding future prospects. Rely on experience.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take care of personal responsibilities. Your ability to take control and make things happen will be impressive. Love is on the rise, and making changes to your lifestyle or the way you live will bring stellar results. Live in the moment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Proceed with caution. Be wary of anyone asking for too much or taking advantage of what you have to offer. Don’t be afraid to speak up and let your wishes be known. You will excel if you put in an honest effort.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Communicate, participate, and enjoy what life has to offer. You will find out information that can help you advance. Get more involved in the events that you believe you can make a positive contribution to. Love is in the stars.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t be too quick to judge or to believe what you hear. You can, and should, look at your options and professional opportunities that can lead to a better future, but make sure your motives are right before you make a decision.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Think, experiment, and follow through. Believe in who you are and what you do. Let your imagination lead the way and your heart decide what’s best for you. Romance will enhance an important relationship. Live, love, and laugh.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Play hard, have fun, and most of all, keep everyone guessing what you’ll do next. The element of surprise will be your best weapon when you face competition. Changes at home that will help you lower your overhead should be considered.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make important decisions regarding professional direction or personal status. Staying in control will be what counts if you want to protect your assets and set the standard for future dealings. Romance is in the stars.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can learn through observation. Not everyone will offer a clear description of what’s expected of you. Ask questions that will leave no room for misinterpretation. Changes to the way you live will lift your spirits. Rely on emotional insight.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put pressure on anyone standing between you and your dreams. Don’t let emotional blackmail lead you down the wrong path. Set your sights on your goals, and follow through. Love is heading in your direction, as are ulterior motives.

Best Sam Spade lines never written:

• There she stood, wearing nothing but a smile and a chain saw.

• She turned to me and said, “Charlie, these last four days without you have been the longest of my life. I couldn’t wait to be in your arms again.” I only wish I knew who Charlie was.

• She became just like my feminine side: dangerous, psychotic, and pressing charges.

• The banana hiding in his tux jacket turned out to be loaded revolver with a hair trigger. It seemed I underestimated him, as well as his potassium needs.

• I turned to find him standing in front of me, handsome as the day is long. I wanted to let him know how good a friend he was to me, how much he meant in my life. How I longed to hold him in a brotherly embrace. Shame is, you can’t hug your own reflection.

• The client was more of a monkey than a man, but somehow we were able to communicate. Only after experiencing a series of unforeseen shenanigans, desperately trying to keep him focused on the task at hand, I was able to return him to the Man in the Yellow Hat.

• The thing I didn’t realize, until it was all over, was that I’d been saying all of this out loud the entire time.
