ARIES (March 21-April 19): What you want and what you need are not the same. Don't allow anyone to guilt-trip you into spending to prove your love or dedication. Speak up for your rights, and begin making travel plans.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Love problems are likely to arise because of a situation being blown out of proportion. If someone begins to overreact, you are best to lay out the facts in a diplomatic manner and carry on with your day. Avoid hasty decisions and arguments.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Home, friends, and socializing will all lead to an interesting revelation regarding someone you find inspiring. A work relationship based on a creative connection will bring about a chance to try something new. Love and romance will bring you happiness.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Say less, do more. You may be torn between what someone wants and what you can afford to do. Put greater emphasis on bringing a unique and interesting alternative to an opportunity that can alter your life or a friendship.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): An emotional challenge must not be allowed to take over. Call in favors or schedule your time so that you can take care of situations as they arise. Don't leave anything to chance. Use your imagination and skills to find solutions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Check in with people you have worked with in the past. A new development will create an opportunity that interests you. Partnerships formed now will be unique. Get what's being offered in writing. Security should be your first concern.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Welcome change, and turn each new adventure into an interesting prospect. Mix and match the past and present plans to come up with the perfect set of circumstances. Don't fold under pressure or give away too much. Equality should be your goal.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be receptive to different philosophies and ways of doing things. Your ability to mix the old with the new, coupled with your uniqueness and vivid imagination to offer something special, will be well received.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The information you pick up while participating in a cause will help you meet people willing to include you in a moneymaking plan. Your financial intake, as well as your living conditions, can improve.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't take on any personal debt or meddle in emotional situations that can cost you a good friendship. Listen, but don't voice your opinion or take sides. You would be wise to mind your own business and focus on your responsibilities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A change in the way you earn your living or what you learn that will ensure a bright future is apparent. Believe in your ability to excel at whatever task you are given, and you will make a noteworthy impression.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will pick up unusual ideas if you get involved in functions related to work or a plan you want to pursue. You will find a solution to a financial slowdown that will get you back in the game.

I just made a pot of coffee so strong that … (2/2):

• it doesn't need a spotter at the gym.

• I suspect it has the same "doctor" as A-Rod.

• Big Oil wants to buy me out and bury the technology I used to make it.

• it just vowed to return to the village where it was grown and fight to restore social justice for the local campesinos.

• it can't be stirred with anything less than a garden trowel.

• Atlas just asked it for a favor.

• it gave me insomnia LAST night.

• it just gave a Xenomorph indigestion.

• it made me have to pee just looking at it.

• it just got phone calls from Professor Xavier AND Nick Fury.

• it just kicked sand in my face and stole my LadyPal.

• the number of milligrams of caffeine it contains is … MORE THAN 9,000???

• before you drink the coffee, it is advised that you and the coffee first agree on a safe word.

• it didn't cry at the end of Brian's Song. (Well, OK, it did tear-up a little …)
