ARIES (March 21-April 19): Implement a couple of changes to your appearance or mannerisms to stay comfortably within the boundaries set by those you must deal with regularly. The effort you make will show your interest in being a team player.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take pride in what you do, and continue to make plans for the future. Refrain from discussing your ideas openly, and don't feel the need to make alterations based on what others do. Stick to your strategy, and keep moving forward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't share too much information with those looking for help or a handout. You are best to wait and watch to see what's really needed and what isn't. Make sure that motives are in the right place before you make a commitment.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take the road less traveled. You'll attract attention if you take a unique approach to whatever you do. Use your imagination, and you'll come up with something innovative that will help others. Respect must be gained, not bought.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are overdue for a change. A chance to re-evaluate and make personal moves will help you stabilize your current situation. Don't allow an emotional incident to affect your professional choices or productivity. Be reserved in your dealings with others.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look for things to do that inspire you mentally, physically, and emotionally. Getting together with friends, focusing on family, or taking care of personal needs will give you the boost you need to broaden your perspective and expand your pursuits.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can spread yourself a little thin and get things accomplished that will make onlookers jealous of your success. Romance is in the stars; it will make your personal life more fulfilling and exciting.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't let emotional conversations stifle what you can do. Your focus should be on creativity and making your home a place of comfort and entertainment. Use your imagination, and expand in areas that interest you. Explore new possibilities.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't be fooled by what others say or do. Look at what you can do to improve your personal life and your surroundings. Protect your physical and emotional wellness by taking precautions not to make the same mistakes you have in the past.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put your ideas to the test. Flush out any problems, and follow through until you reach the desired results before you present what you have to offer to others. Put time aside for love and romance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Plunge into what you want to accomplish. Don't waste time explaining what you are doing. Someone is likely to try to lead you astray or use your hard work to get ahead. Do things for yourself, not for others.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can make a difference and a good impression if you help others. The rewards will be greater than anticipated. Getting together with someone from your past will spark an idea you'll want to pursue. Love is on the rise.



We hold these truths to be self-evident (and a little nerdy):

• Only on the Internet could two nerds angrily typing responses to one another be deemed a "Flame War."

• It's a little ironic that Pi Day repeats each year.

• The most terrifying scene in any movie to watch before you are 8 years old is the scene in Jurassic Park in which the dude gets eaten in the bathroom. The scene has undone more potty training than prune juice and Taco Bell combined.

• GI Joe's efforts against COBRA could only have benefitted from its members spending less time in public areas waiting for children to engage in unsafe, morally questionable, or lecture-worthy behavior. Also, probably some target practice.

• When it comes to an organization whose very name defies the idea that its members would trust one another long enough for the organization to even exist, the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants wins hands-down.

• Funky Winkerbean is the comic-strip equivalent of the Picture of Dorian Gray. It takes into itself the sins of other comics and reflects those iniquities in the withered, twisted countenances of its own feckless cast. The people of Westview lose limbs, waste away from a host of terminal diseases, and sometimes age decades in a flash, all so that Blondie's boobs may remain ever-perky and Garfield's myocardium perpetually non-infarcted.
