ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't waste time, or you will be criticized. Set your sights on what will bring the highest return, and move in that direction. If you achieve what you set out to, a celebration will lead to love and romance

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Collaborate with friends, or make time for children. Expand your ideas, and express your thoughts. Attend a conference or event that gets you thinking and connects you to interesting people and prospects. A good partnership should be considered.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't let anyone take you for granted. You may like to lend a helping hand, but making donations or offering your time and talent for nothing will not end well. Expect someone you know to have ulterior motives. Proceed with caution.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don't let what someone else does deter you from doing your own thing. You may not please everyone, but it's important that you feel good about what you do. A change at home or with a friendship will help liberate you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make personal changes, and try something new. What you do to change your current situation personally or professionally will pay off. The people you meet and the direction you take will lead to a better position and a bright future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't let uncertainty hold you back. Ask questions, and do whatever it takes to get the information you require to make a wise decision regarding your future. The added responsibilities you take on will bring high returns.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't believe everything you hear. Take control of any conversation you engage in, and lay the facts and figures out for everyone to see. Don't beat around the bush. Today is about taking action and getting things done.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will stand out in the crowd, so take advantage, and step into the spotlight where you can make a difference. Voice your opinion, and do your best to bring about positive change; it will improve your life at work and at home.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Listen to what's being said, but don't make promises. You have to find out more before you concur to follow through with someone else's plans. Put more time into your home, family, and romantic life, and you will make progress.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Search for information instead of taking someone's word. It's important to protect against emotional, financial or physical encounters that threaten you. A partnership can turn out to be costly if you cannot agree. Massage the situation, and position yourself to win.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Remembering the past will help you move forward. Getting together with old friends or resurrecting a project you left unfinished will lead you in a positive direction. Love is on the rise, and romance should be a priority.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let your charm shine through. You can stabilize your position and take care of pressing business matters if you do so with finesse. Your imagination and curiosity will attract someone you find intriguing and worth collaborating with.

Finals Prep:

• History: Briefly describe the events preceding and following the Civil War, beginning with Great Flood and ending with the successful American-led invasion of Gygax 9. Relate all events to distinct personal anecdotes. Hokeyness will be penalized.

• Biology Practicum: Genetically engineer and housebreak a gryphon. You have three hours. (NOTE: Gryphon does not need to be of mythic proportions; anything larger than a standard poodle will do.)

• Political Science: Provide nine methods for subverting the separation of powers in a trifurcated president-led democracy. Use examples of successful past attempts by local, state, federal, and student government, as well as how they would be perceived by the reanimated corpse of a disinterred Woodrow Wilson.

• Fine Arts: Find, procure (through barter or purchase), and smoke some weed. You have six minutes.

• Combinatory Math: Nathan has three lilac shirts, four mauve shirts, and five lavender shirts. By wearing no color more than two days in a row, how long can Nathan remain closeted to his father?

• Algebra: Let X represent Johnny Depp and Y represent Hugh Jackman. Write a scenario wherein (X + Y) = (Sex on a boat).

• Calculus: Let Y = X4 + X7 + 47. Now, you could solve the problem for X, but what the hell has X ever done for you?

• Physics: Provide the correct date and time of Armageddon. Show your work. (HINT: remember that 2032 is a leap year.)
