ARIES (March 21-April 19): Schedule a day trip or shopping spree. The discoveries and information you pick up will help you choose a new look or attitude that will build your courage and confidence to pursue your dreams, hopes, and wishes. Love is in the stars.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stay calm. Overreacting will not solve any of your problems. Emotional turmoil is apparent, but if you throw your energy and time into getting ahead professionally, you will bypass the negatives that go hand-in-hand with being indulgent.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Self-improvement is the name of the game, along with flirting, socializing, and romance. A career opportunity is apparent; updating and sending out your resume will bring about a change that can improve your standard of living.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Separate the negative from the positive influences in your life, and do your best to head down the path that offers the most stability. Your creative imagination is working overtime, and putting your ideas on paper will lead to a profitable plan.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Follow through with your plans, but discuss your goals with the people your decision will affect before altering your life. Partnerships are prevalent, and the person who supports your dreams the most should be considered your ally. Romance will improve your personal life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Address personal money matters. You are best to make conservative alterations that will ensure your finances are safe and secure. Don't let anyone talk you into spending on something that is risky. Your intuition will not let you down.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A creative project will improve your attitude and help you develop an important new skill. Love is in the stars, and an important relationship should be subject to some changes that will bring you closer together.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Take action and say what's on your mind. Hesitation will stand between you and your success. Use intuitive tactics to persuade someone to take part in your plans, but be careful not to exaggerate or take on more than you can handle.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Finish what you start so that you can feel free to do whatever you want. Stick to familiar, comfortable situations, and do your best to close a deal that's pending. Put love on a pedestal, and focus on having fun with someone special.

Random thoughts:

• I once read somewhere that "fart" was, phonetically, generally agreed upon to be the most beautiful word in the entire English language. I think it was on the back of a cereal box.

• Its just like Lenin said, man: "I am the walrus."

• Knowing may be half the battle, but nobody has ever won by fighting half the battle.

• Alfred, Lord Tennyson once said "'Tis better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all." But the rock group Yes once said that the owner of a lonely heart is much better than the owner of a broken heart. I just don't know whom to believe anymore. And I'm hungry. Life is hard.

• You know, as a fully grown and functioning human, with a beard and a job and everything, I really should know my own blood type. Oh screw it; I'll just go with O- if anybody asks.

• I've never seen the members of any marching band take off their hats while playing the national anthem. WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA, MARCHING BANDS?

• I think too many people take not having to pee for granted. Ever really stop and appreciate how good it feels to not have to pee? I wait until the last possible second (which, admittedly, does make it feel so much better), but that all ends today. I'm going to start appreciating my emptier bladder more, by golly. I don't have to pee right now, and let me tell you: It feels damn good, sport.
