ARIES (March 21-April 19): Getting involved in a joint venture can be successful, but it may also lead to disillusionment regarding your partner. Don't assume anything, and be ready to pick up the slack if something mysteriously doesn't get finished. Make love a priority in your personal life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't complain, or you may face ridicule and a lack of sympathy. Being secretive about your plans and gathering information that will help you present a solid case regarding your goals will help you strengthen your position.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make simple but positive changes that will help keep the peace at home or within a business partnership. Compromise will be necessary, and it should be handled with diplomacy. You should be able to avoid a dispute. Put your energy into affection, not disdain.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't mix money and emotions. Be smart about the way you use your funds. A job that can help you learn new skills and improve your emotional, physical and financial wellness is apparent. Don't rule out the obvious. Do what you enjoy doing most.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Turn an idea into cash. Build a strong presentation, and promote what you have to offer to people who will want to buy into your plan. Love is hot, and a romantic celebration will bring you closer to someone special.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't let emotions stand between you and your goals. Look for unique ways to invest in something that will bring you income. Explore health-related products, activities, and lifestyles, and implement them into your routine. Romance is in the stars.

• The guinea pig is neither a pea nor a nut.

• A decent percentage of the world's fish population is, in fact, incapable of living underwater. These are commonly known as "dead fish."

• A duck's quack has no echo in outer space.

• Oranges are quite ironically named, as they are colorblind.

• Having a kidney removed will drastically increase your chances of suffering from kidney failure. But having both kidneys removed will virtually ensure you'll never have to worry about kidney failure again.

• Approximately 50 percent of the area beneath any class's bell curve is composed of complete idiots and ass-faced suck-ups.

• Emus are physically incapable of walking backwards, and they're not too fond of single-barrel Scotch, either.
