ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make personal changes that will boost your confidence and your ego. A relationship can cost you emotionally if you let a situation spin out of control. Use diplomacy, compassion, and understanding when dealing with loved ones.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Use caution if working with equipment or tools. An argument will leave you feeling cheated. Concentrate on learning and expanding your skills. Your success will be the best revenge in a no-win situation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Spend time with friends, and share your ideas and intentions with those who have something to contribute or offer in return. Avoid complainers or critical, negative people. Purchase something that makes you feel good.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a serious approach to something you want to master. Discipline and hard work will pay off and impress someone who has something unique to offer you. Discuss your plans, and start to move in that direction.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Rely on those who owe you favors and refrain from letting anyone stand in your way. Make some time for a needed getaway. Traveling to a destination that offers fun, romance, and relaxation should be planned for late in the day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): An emotional situation will leave you confused and wondering what to do next. Don't add pressure; simply wait and watch to see how things unfold. Once you get a true picture of what you are up against, you can take action.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Enjoy the sights, scenery, and your surroundings. Avoid negativity and getting pulled into problems that are based on vanity or naïvety. Focus on being your best, doing your best, and enjoying any personal success you achieve. Love is on the rise.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An opportunity that offers a practical solution to a problem you face should be considered. Back away from people who don't share your thoughts, ideas, or beliefs, and opt to work alongside those who complement what you have to offer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A financial partnership may intrigue you, but before going down that path, consider whether you need someone and if the person you choose can contribute as much as you have. Unexpected doors will open if you continue to move forward alone.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Size up your situation and make your choices based on practical matters, not emotional feelings. If you let your heart rule your head, you are likely to face setbacks that will be costly and difficult to reverse. Don't mix business with pleasure.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take care of health issues or any physical changes you want implement in order to make yourself more appealing. The people you choose to spend time with must be a positive influence if you plan to improve your personal or professional life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Go over your financial situation. You can spend money, but only if it will bring you a return at some point. Investing in your skills, education, or future prospects will pay off. An emotional problem with a friend or lover will be costly.

Freshman Advice (2/3):

• Mayflower is isolated from the rest of campus for a reason. Once you understand that reason, your true education begins.

• The ginkgo seeds make the Pentacrest stink horribly every fall; engineering and math majors use this as an excuse to shower less. That was both advice and a warning.

• Always be sure to utilize the UI water-plant reports. If the post-treatment feces content is under 6 ppm, the water just doesn't taste right.

• The only proper way to welcome an opposing football team's fans is by reminding them of every horrible thing their sports program did in the last quarter century.

• If you're invited to a party on Mormon Trek, make sure you're wearing comfortable shoes. Just because you hadn't planned on walking back to campus doesn't mean you won't be.

• They say the steam tunnels beneath Phillips Hall contain Vonnegut's lost works. The tunnels' only inhabitant, the Day Mummer, guards his secrets with his Army of Rats and Spiders. His office hours are Wednesdays from 1:30-4.

• Understand that everyone in their 30s still lives here because of all the amenities present in a college town, but they also all hate the students. This will puzzle you … until you're in your 30s.

• Always, always, always read the Ledge and follow the directions and advice given herein.

• GET OUT OF THE F@#$ING STREET!!!!!! Seriously.
