TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t share personal secrets. You’ll encounter someone who is jealous and unpredictable. Keep your professional matters to yourself, and focus on doing your job. Accept the inevitable, and you will find it much easier to deal with the changes going on around you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stick to whatever budget you set. Impulse purchases will set you back financially. Problems with settlements, legal matters, or contracts can be avoided if you are precise in what’s acceptable and what isn’t. You cannot please everyone.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen, discuss plans, and do your best to learn whatever information you require firsthand. Ulterior motives are apparent where money is concerned. Get whatever you agree upon in writing. A change of plans can help alleviate discord.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Hard work plus creativity and talent will put you ahead professionally. A partnership will have its perks as long as you keep what you bring to the table equal. Don’t be enticed by someone offering a secret rendezvous.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take a walk down memory lane, and you will find the answers you need to move forward. Reflect, rejuvenate, and reconsider your options. With a little thought, consideration, and planning, you can improve your life. Try something new.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stop procrastinating; make a move. Time is of the essence and can make a difference between success and failure. Make a decision regarding your home and your personal finances. A joint venture isn’t likely to work, so be prepared to move forward on your own.

Re-examining a few more well-known sayings:

• “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.” Or at least that’s what my cats tell me.

• “Variety is the spice of life.” Also … salt. It’s in everything.

• “Excuses are like noses: everybody’s got one.” Also: they come in handy if you have a bad cocaine habit.

• “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.” At least, that’s what the government wants you to believe by putting mind-controlling chemicals in our nation’s corn syrup and talcum-powder supplies since the ’60s.

• “There’s a thin line between love and hate.” There’s also a thin line between Speakboxxx and The Love Below. And between AC and DC. And between and and or. And between how funny this joke ever was to begin with and how tired its premise has now become.

• “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.” Unless you went to a restaurant and ordered a hand.

• “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.” It’s only insane if you do it over and over again NINE times. Or TEN times. But not ELEVEN. ELEVEN is a prime number, and those are all SAFE. Isn’t that right, Mr. Kitten Mittens?

Andrew R. Juhl isn’t an idiom, you oxymoronic proverb.
