ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll be questioned about your relationship with someone. It will be difficult to hide the way you feel. Stick to the truth, but only reveal what’s absolutely necessary. Keeping busy will help you avoid an uncomfortable situation.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Focus on cutting corners and staying within your budget. Refrain from letting anyone talk you into something you don’t feel comfortable doing. Someone isn’t being straight with you. Bide your time, and be diplomatic and professional in your dealings.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s time to start something new. Pamper yourself, or get out and associate with people in your industry. Embrace obscure and unusual activities, and spend time with people who can offer you a different perspective on the way you can do things.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take off if trouble develops. It's better to be safe than sorry. Now is not the time to meddle or get involved in something that has the potential to put you in a compromising position. Focus on projects you can do alone.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take over if things need to be accomplished at home or in your community. By taking a positive position, you will gain respect and win favors. Love is in the stars, and communication will lead to an interesting offer.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Focus on what's most important to you. Don't flaunt your good fortune or someone will show jealousy and offer discord in place of praise. Proceed with your plans secretively, and try to avoid interference.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Let the energy of the day pull you along. Welcome change, and initiate what you want to see unfold. It’s a “take charge” kind of day, so don’t waffle or let someone else take over. Show your strengths, and improve your weaknesses.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Step up to the plate, and call the shots. If you work hard, you will get the backing you need to reach your goals. Don’t let red tape slow you down. There is plenty you can do while waiting for approval.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ve got more going for you than you realize. Don’t complain when you should show your positive side and present the ideas you want to pursue. Don’t let someone bully you into doing something that goes against your principles.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will feel at odds about the different choices you are given. Don’t complicate matters by being too analytical. Something either works for you, or it doesn’t. Do what best suits your current situation, and don’t look back.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Jump into action. Take care of legal, financial, medical, and contractual matters. Now is not the time to let someone else speak for you. Only you can express what you want successfully. Love is on the rise, and a promise can be made.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Consider a partnership if it will stabilize your financial situation. Let your intuition guide you in matters that concern documentation, commitment, and contractual partnerships. Don’t let aggressive action unnerve you or lead to an uncomfortable situation.

‘Lifestyle’ changes students can make to avoid taking on debt

• Who needs an expensive graphing calculator when you still have your childhood abacus?

• Taking someone out on a date? Don’t forget that “buy one entrée, get one free” coupon.

• Save nearly $1,000 by buying a typewriter instead of a laptop.

• Share bathwater with your entire fraternity to save on the water bill; it’s cool, you’re brothers.

• Why pay more than $60 each month for a pointless cell phone when you can train a carrier pigeon for practically free.

• Save hundreds by hitchhiking home for the holidays instead of flying.

• Inexpensively keep track of 2015 by reusing your calendar from 2009; plan ahead and save even more by using it again in 2026.

• Each semester, sell your roommate’s belongings on eBay to cover your student fees. Avoid retaliation simply by not having belongings of your own – even more savings.

• Cut your grocery bills in half by eating only every other day.

• Never hesitate to haggle over the cost of your meal when dining in the River Room.

• Instead of paying a monthly Internet bill, use your old Encarta Encyclopedia CD-ROMs to write research papers, just as you did in middle school.

• Walk to the Rally Against Student Debt at noon Wednesday near the Pentacrest instead of flying your private helicopter there.
