ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make up your mind, and stick to your plans. Inconsistency will end up being emotionally costly and could affect your productivity. Stick to what needs to be done, and refuse to go overboard, overreact, or overspend to compensate.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Being secretive can benefit you short-term, but eventually, you are going to have to share what you have been doing or thinking. Consider the best way to break the news to those who will be most affected by your decision.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Size up whatever situation you face and make a move. Taking action and control will ensure that you don't lose out. You may not please everyone, but in the end, you will be able to excel and satisfy your needs.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do things differently. Whether you are engaging in a new relationship or embarking on an adventure, you will get the most out of taking an unfamiliar path. Love and romance will lead to a promise or stronger commitment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Weigh the pros and cons of any situation you face before making a commitment. You don't want to upset someone you care about or feel responsible for because you haven't scheduled your time wisely. Don't let infatuation lead you down a slippery slope.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Question any financial, legal, or medical issue that arises. Don't make a hasty decision. You are best to do your research and take whatever matter you face into your own hands. Be responsible for the outcome of any problem you encounter.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take whatever is said in stride. Believe in yourself and what you can do. Getting all worked up is a waste of time. Make changes that include weeding out people who don't share your values or offer equality in the relationship.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Ask for favors, and make last-minute changes to ensure everything is the way you want it. Let your memories and experience guide you with regard to life lessons. Love is in the stars, and romance will enhance your life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make positive changes. You can lower your overhead or turn a service or idea you can offer into a lucrative pastime. Most of all, find ways to do things you enjoy and turn a profit at the same time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't be too quick to judge. Making fast decisions will lead to mistakes that will be difficult to reverse. Focus on what you do well, and avoid an emotional matter that can get you into trouble with a partner, friend, or relative.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Revisiting your past may not be easy, but it may be necessary if you are having trouble moving forward where personal matters are concerned. Consider what you have given up in the past, and focus on what you can gain now.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Invest in your talent and goals. Explore your options, and talk to people you feel can contribute something positive, and you will get the results you want. Don't be afraid to be a little different — your vivid imagination will entice interest.

Haiku Friday

Though she yelled "Welcome"
it was still hard to hear from
behind that forced smile.

Couples counseling.
She says, as I tie my shoes,
"You're gonna wear THAT?"

Fighting to music.
I punch him on the downbeats.
He strikes me as odd.

Sleepy, but hopeful,
he slides more closely to her
and feels the pillow.

Wearing her best bra,
she demands his eye contact.
It's a booby trap.

The cancer is back.
What pisses me off the most?
Just got this haircut.

The misers roll by
on secondhand roller blades.
Cheapskates on cheap skates.

Our newest neighbors?
Vegan nudist pot smokers.
They're unnatural.

"Why is the sky blue?"
The young freely question things.
The old should take note.

Asked for a threesome.
Slept on the couch by myself.
Dreamt of an orgy.

Andrew R. Juhl.
You should write him a haiku.
He did it for you.
