GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Offering help might be misconstrued as meddling in other people's affairs. Avoid getting too close or personal with someone you do business with. Pay more attention to what's going on in your own personal life and make positive changes that will improve your relationships.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will face opposition. Uncertainty and confusion is likely to set in when dealing with a friend or colleague offering vague and confusing information. Don't make a decision until you feel satisfied with what's being said. Focus on home and family.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): An unexpected situation will arise. Communication is likely to be misconstrued, leading to a poor choice or mishap. Get all the facts and protect personal information that you feel may be used against you. Rely on experience.

Re-examining well-known sayings:

• "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." So just keep standing there holding that bird, I guess.

• "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride." Usually escorted out of the reception hall, more often than not because I've drunkenly peed myself.

• "Everything happens for a reason." IN MOVIES. People always seem to forget that last part.

• "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Fool me three times, you're better than most working magicians.

• "Only trust someone as far as you can throw them." Same goes for grenades.

• "Reach for the stars." That's a good way to throw out your back.

• "There's a fine line between love and hate." There's an even finer line between a pretty good line and a pretty great line.

• "Today is the first day of the rest of your life." So sleep in; there's always tomorrow.

• "Well-behaved women seldom make history." Or poop on the carpet.

• "When Life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Then, on a hot day in the middle of summer, don't give that jerk Life any of your lemonade.

• "You can't have your cake and eat it, too." You can with Instagram.

• "You reap what you sow." Which is why I sow cubes of Colby Jack cheese.
