ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get out and enjoy your friends and new activities. Visiting a destination you have never been to before will open up all sorts of new possibilities. Compromise, but don't overcompensate for someone else. Romance will enhance your life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't allow anger to come between you and a workable solution. Stubbornness is not going to help you get what you want. Reverse psychology will help you gain approval with someone who can persuade others to see things your way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Hold back; allow others to voice opinions. Once you know where everyone stands, you will be in a better position to make suggestions that will have a positive influence and bring about interesting options. Love is in the stars.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Networking will result in suggestions that can lead to travel or experience that will enable you to move in a better direction. Ask questions; share thoughts. A partnership will bring you closer to your goals. Don't make personal changes.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Compromise to avoid a rift with someone who can cause personal problems. Strive to free up time to make directional alterations. Pick up knowledge that will make it easier to deal with those set in their ways and likely to cause problems.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep your feelings and your emotions under control. Emotional deception is apparent and must be considered before you make a move that may have a negative effect on your financial future. Practical choices will far outweigh an impulsive short-term fix.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your emotions will not lead you astray. Take note of your feelings, but don't take action. Someone you are dealing with will overreact, giving you the opportunity to make a move that will put you in a positive position.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't let anyone bait you into an argument. Listen to what's being said, and take time to absorb what has happened and what works best for you. You are sitting in a much better position than you realize. Bide your time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick close to home. Dealing with institutions or people who are quick to manipulate or twist your words will create problems when you travel or try to take care of paperwork. Domestic changes will bring good results.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Look over deals, contracts, and investments or research a health issue that concerns you, and you will find a way to address it. A problem with a friend, relative, or neighbor can affect your relationship with someone you love.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Talks will not help you solve a problem you have with someone. Do your own thing, and follow a path that will ensure your happiness and satisfaction. It's best to be honest if you want to put an end to a difficult situation.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotions will escalate, and confusion will set in with regard to a partnership you thought you could count on. Look over your finances, and make sure you have protected your possessions and assets. Expand your interests and friendships.

Freshman Advice (1/3):

• Coralville and North Liberty are "the suburbs" and should only be referred to as such.

• Need to make new friends? Just lounge around the Ped Mall all day panhandling money for American Spirit cigarettes. Suddenly, everyone's on your side.

• College can be an intense time, spiritually. Avail yourself of any one of same-sounding and predominantly white churches in the area.

• When it comes to textbooks, instead of buying new ones, try just winging it.

• It's important to know your limits; only try one new drug each week. I mean, seriously, you wouldn't do an entire semester's worth of homework in the first month, right? Same principle.

• Make money whenever and wherever you can. Do you enroll for next semester earlier than most? Just sign up for the most popular courses, then sell your spots on Craigslist for $50/seat.

• Keep in mind that people from all cultures and walks of life come to Iowa to be bored to death. Be respectful.

• College is half about education and half about networking, so only sleep with the TAs you absolutely know are in good standing with their departments (and don't let the sense of entitlement most grad students have get you down; the vast majority of us are only here because we couldn't find jobs).

• For every minute of class you miss, burn a $10 bill. Seriously.
