ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do something nice for someone going through a tough time. Taking a stance and speaking up about your beliefs, theories, and concerns will put you in the limelight and create a stir in your community or among your friends.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Make travel plans, or visit friends or relatives you don't get to see often. Talk over changes you want to make in an important relationship. Firm up on any agreement you have regarding legal or contractual connotations.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep your secrets locked up tight. An impulsive move due to an emotional situation will leave you in a questionable position. Prepare to make a decision that will alter who you spend time with between now and the end of the year.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): A little rest will do you good. Continually trying to make everything perfect for others will take its toll on you emotionally, mentally, and physically. Consider booking a massage or a day at the spa. Romance will ease stress.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do what's expected of you, and keep moving. Hook up with friends, or shop for special items that will make your life easier or more comfortable. Don't rely on others when it's up to you to make things happen.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't jump to conclusions, or make a hasty move. Focus on getting things done and spending time with the people you love the most. Picking up a new outfit or updating your look will help boost your confidence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional problems will surface if you are dealing with children or anyone who depends on you. Look for answers that will help improve the dynamic of any relationship you feel is worthwhile. Avoid excess, and improve your health.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do something unique if you plan to entertain and make an impression on your guests. A change to the way you live will enhance your life and give you plenty to look forward to. Romance will pay off.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make changes at home that will brighten your environment. More activity will motivate you to expand your interests. Consider how you want to ring in the New Year, and make plans that include the people you enjoy being around the most.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Listen to what's being said, but don't take offense. Everyone is entitled to her or his opinion. Anger is a waste of time, and constructive criticism, although not favored, can be of help in the not-too-distant future.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Surround yourself with people who inspire you. Once you get started in a direction that allows you to utilize the things you do best, you will be unstoppable. A change of plans will end up being to your benefit. Enjoy the moment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Go out, and hustle to get all the little things done that have been nagging at you. A chance to spend time with someone you love to be around should be planned for the evening hours. A commitment can and should be made.

Clues that Charlie Brown should have been treated for clinical depression:

• "Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love."

• "There must be millions of people all over the world who never get any love letters. I could be their leader."

• "I've developed a new philosophy. I only dread one day at a time."

• "I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I'm not happy. I don't feel the way I'm supposed to feel."

• "That's the secret to life … replace one worry with another …"

• "I feel like going home to bed, but it's only noon."

• "Sometimes, I lie awake at night and I ask, 'Why me?' — then a voice answers, 'Nothing personal, your name just happened to come up.' "

• "I almost wish there weren't a holiday season. I know nobody likes me. Why do we have to have a holiday season to emphasize it?"

• "I've killed it. Oh. Everything I touch gets ruined."

• "[Writing] Dear Pencil-pal, did you have a nice summer? Mine could have been better, but it could have been worse. For me, that's good."

• "This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high, because then you'll start to feel better. …"

• "I'm dying, and all I hear is insults."

• "Everything seems hopeless … I'm completely depressed."

• "Good grief."
