ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let your emotions stand between you and a good relationship decision. Sharing costs or lowering your overhead will buy you the freedom and good fortune to do more of the things you enjoy most. Plan a trip for two.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep an open mind when listening to the concerns of others. Offering simple but effective solutions will ensure you get the same respect in return. Don’t let your emotions show, or someone will spot your vulnerability and use it against you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put your energy into doing a good job and helping others. The changes you bring about will be commendable, but not everyone will agree with your methods. Appeal to the emotional side of those trying to interfere with your plans.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your intuition will guide you, but don’t expect smooth sailing. Meddling can be expected, and it must be handled with professionalism if you want to avoid a disagreement that can hinder your reputation. Stay calm, and proceed with caution.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Jump into action, and make things happen. Take control, and do your own thing. You’ll gain respect, attract attention, and be acknowledged for what you accomplish. Someone is likely to challenge you. Stand tall, and proceed with grace and dignity.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let impulsiveness lead to a costly move. Investments will not be as good as they appear. Control your emotions when it comes to money, health, and legal matters. Keep a calm disposition, and refuse to let anyone take advantage of you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participate in an activity that offers positive results. Doing something special with someone you love will help you bond and set the groundwork for a better relationship. Strive for equality, and you’ll achieve compatibility.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Explore new people, places, and activities. Keep your emotions in check, and look at your options. A trip will lead to new prospects and plans for the future. Don’t be afraid to take an unusual path. Speak up, and move forward.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Wear your heart on your sleeve. Show the ones you love how much you care. Do something that will make your home more entertaining and add to your assets. Love is in the stars, and romance will improve your personal life.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep a low profile. Listen carefully to what others say, and be observant of what’s going on around you. Avoid confrontations and discord. Focus on family, important relationships, and making your life better, not more complicated.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Opportunities are within reach. Take a look around you, and do what you can to take advantage of a job or financial investment that comes your way. Love is on the rise, and celebrating with someone special will bring you closer together.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do something creative or share your ideas with someone who inspires you. You will be able to resolve a pending legal, financial, or medical matter if you can reach a decision that you are comfortable with.

Best Sam Spade lines never written:

• There she stood, wearing nothing but a smile and a chain saw.

• She turned to me and said, “Charlie, these last four days without you have been the longest of my life. I couldn’t wait to be in your arms again.” I only wish I knew who Charlie was.

• She became just like my feminine side: dangerous, psychotic, and pressing charges.

• The banana hiding in his tux jacket turned out to be loaded revolver with a hair trigger. It seemed I underestimated him, as well as his potassium needs.

• I turned to find him standing in front of me, handsome as the day is long. I wanted to let him know how good a friend he was to me, how much he meant in my life. How I longed to hold him in a brotherly embrace. Shame is, you can’t hug your own reflection.

• The client was more of a monkey than a man, but somehow we were able to communicate. Only after experiencing a series of unforeseen shenanigans, desperately trying to keep him focused on the task at hand, I was able to return him to the Man in the Yellow Hat.

• The thing I didn’t realize, until it was all over, was that I’d been saying all of this out loud the entire time.
