ARIES (March 21-April 19): A personal overhaul will boost your confidence. Take the initiative to be current and aware of new technology or skills that can help improve your status or position. Efficiency, moderation, and consistency will help you win support and favors and avoid complaints.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Weigh the pros and cons. Don’t believe everything you hear. An overrated point of view will take you off course. Get the facts, and make an accurate assessment. Rely on your ability and talent, not someone else’s.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Time spent doing a good job will persuade others to give you more responsibility. Sharing ideas will motivate you to move faster so you can begin projects that excite you. Re-evaluate your situation, and you’ll find a way to fulfill your dreams.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Uncertainty is prevalent. Try not to get into a discussion with someone looking for a commitment. You are best to keep looking at your prospects and researching the pros and cons of what’s being offered and what’s expected of you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let a disagreement explode into a serious emotional encounter. Use your ability to negotiate and find a solution. Changes due to added responsibilities will help you repair damage done to your reputation if you step up and do what’s required.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enjoy life, friends, and whatever is happening in your community. Taking a diverse approach to whatever you do will lead to good fortune and help you get past any obstacles you meet along the way. Work at improving important relationships.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep life simple, and avoid situations that have the potential to backfire. Stick to the truth, and show emotional and physical support to those you care about. How you are treated now will depend on what you have done in the past.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Distractions must be avoided. Protect your interests and your lifestyle. An innovative approach to improving your personal life emotionally, physically, and financially will bring excellent results. Don’t allow anger or resentment to stand between you and your goals.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Do what you can for others without expecting anything in return. Paying it forward will result in life-altering changes that will help you improve your attitude and bring about positive options that can improve your financial and domestic situation.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put partnerships first. Be precise regarding what you want. Don’t leave anyone guessing, or an unexpected occurrence will leave you in an awkward position. Focus on accomplishing the next to impossible and leave a good impression.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional issues will arise if you let jealousy or possessiveness take over. Size up your situation based on what others do and say, and make an unexpected change based on past experience to rectify any negativity you encounter.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Secrecy or meddling will stand between you and your goals. There are profits to be made and friendships that will develop if you are open, honest, and willing to make the first move. A promise could lead to love.

Why the World of Pokémon is Better than Ours:

• Interspecies crossbreeding and genetic engineering are encouraged. SCIENCE.

• There are no animal-cruelty laws, you can find stable income through an enterprise akin to cockfighting, and all the evidence mysteriously disappears after you’ve committed your happy animal-murder crime.

• All cops are polite, helpful, hot, and dressed in miniskirts.

• There’s no questioning Darwin when animals evolve before your eyes.

• You can teach an old dog (or electric rat) new tricks.

• You can take your animals to the gym.

• The laws of physics are suspended whenever someone could otherwise be seriously hurt.

• All nurses are polite, helpful, hot, and dressed in miniskirts.

• You can have a pet dragon.

• Catching them all is not seen as a telltale sign of addiction.

• Finally, there’s a form of slavery that EVERYONE can get behind.

• Criminal organizations are easily identified by their tacky uniforms …

• But the worst evil you’re likely to face is a pair of idiots, one of whom is hot and dresses in miniskirts.

• Everyone will call your rival “Poopface” if you so choose.

• No one ever dies. They just faint.

• Pikachus.
