New Feature! Sudoku below Horoscopes and Ledge, play online or print it out!

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be open to suggestions and new possibilities. Don't feel obligated to follow someone else or be reluctant to use some suggestions to come up with what works best for you. Focus on getting ahead, not standing still. A change will do you good.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take control of your financial situation. It's up to you to set your budget and stick to it. Don't be fooled by fast-cash schemes. False information regarding deals, contracts, or donations can be expected. A conservative approach will lead to success.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Go with the flow. You will be unpredictable, but that will add to your charm. Follow your heart, and you will find your way. A creative venture will allow you to use your talent to reach a new goal.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Temptation will surround you, and an emotional problem will crop up if you share personal information. You are best to be a quiet observer. Focus on creative projects and personal improvements. Romance may be your desire, but emotional upset will prevail.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Focus on making appropriate changes that will lead to greater happiness and personal stability. If you feel the generosity being offered is questionable, look into the motives that may be behind the actions being offered. Do what's best for everyone involved.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your efforts are likely to feel futile. Look for an outlet that will calm your nerves. Interacting with people from a different background will help you discover the adjustments you need to make to reach your goals.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are on the right track. Don't let laziness be your demise. Pick up the ball, and run in a direction that promises you the success you've been searching for. A change of plans must not throw you off course.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't put off medical, financial, or legal matters. Someone is likely to falsify information or try to send you in the wrong direction. Do your own fact-finding, and put an end to any attempt to lead you astray. Romance is highlighted.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put greater emphasis on love, home, and family. The changes you make now will improve your relationships with the people you care about most. Romance should be your intent and happiness your goal. Take action; show how much you care.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Speak up, and take control of any situation you face at home that appears to need an adjustment. Your strength and courage will be appreciated by those who share your sentiments and feared by those who don't. Pick your allies carefully.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Changing the way you do things will help open up a window of opportunity professionally. Use your skills in an unusual way, and you will discover new possibilities. Invest in what you know and do best.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep your thoughts to yourself, and act below the radar. The less you let others know, the easier it will be to reach your goals. Interference is the enemy and persistence your ticket to success. Strive to stabilize your financial future.

Health Facts:

• By the time the average person finishes reading this article, 3 million cells in their body will have died and been replaced. (So for you communications majors, it's closer it 10 million.)

• In the 1800s, gin was thought to cure stomach problems; nowadays, we know better: rum and coke works better.

• Vaccinations consist of 97 percent water, 2 percent remnants of dead viruses, and 1 percent mind control serum.

• Babies are, pound for pound, stronger than oxen, so don't judge me for the baby fight club I started — they can handle it.

• Standard vaccinations are the second-leading cause of children crying, right behind "no tears" shampoo.

• It takes a red blood cell about 20 minutes to make a complete circuit through the body. Or a bit longer if it stops for a smoothie at Orange Julius.

• Banging your head against the wall burns 150 calories an hour; but if you're banging your head against the wall for an entire hour, then you're probably not worrying about calories.

• Every year, your body replaces 98 percent of the atoms in your body. Hopefully, I can use that fact to persuade the judge it wasn't actually me who started that baby fight club.

• More heart attacks occur on Monday than any other day, so always treat "a case of the Mondays" as a serious threat, seeking rest and "medicinal help" as soon as possible. (Even on when you get a case of the Mondays on Thursday.)
