ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't let anyone bully you. Stay calm, and collect your thoughts. Taking a short trip or doing something you enjoy will ease tension. A serious matter concerning an older family member is best dealt with cautiously.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't neglect minor health issues. Matters that concern a pet must not be left unattended. You will pick up interesting information if you ask questions, do research, or sign up for a seminar. Don't fold under pressure.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Plan to get out, and take part in activities that are work-related. If you are fun to be with, everyone will want to spend time with you. Making positive changes at home will boost your morale and your relationship with loved ones.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take a pass if someone pushes you in an undesirable direction. Trouble will develop if you get into a deep discussion with someone who doesn't feel the same way you do about religion, politics, or other issues. Focus on fun, not debate.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Step into the spotlight, and make it count. Talk about your concerns, desires, and intentions, and you'll be surprised how many people support your efforts. Travel, communication, and partnerships will lead to prosperous deals. Love is on the rise.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You'll have lots to think about. Look at your community and the people you are surrounded by, and you will recognize the problems and the solutions required to make life better. Encourage change, but refrain from being pushy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will intrigue the people you encounter if you share your thoughts, experience, and wisdom. Don't shy away from an opportunity to have a conversation with someone you admire. Your thoughts will be appreciated, and a friendship will develop.  

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be cautious of anyone who is too complimentary. Ulterior motives are present, and you must protect your reputation and your assets. Secret information is being withheld, making it impossible for you to make a well-informed decision.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't be fooled by appearances. Be cautious when sharing information. You don't want anyone to take over or take credit for something that belongs to you. Love is in the stars, and positive change at home will lift your spirits.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may think you have everything under control, but before you jump to conclusions, do your homework. Not everyone will be up-front and honest with you, leaving you in an awkward and costly position. Cover your tracks. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make things happen, and you will leave a lasting impression. You will be offered an opportunity that is too good to ignore. A partnership will undergo a shift, but in the end, it will bring you closer together. Put time aside for romance. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone will surprise you or offer a gift or proposal you cannot refuse. Let your intuition guide you, and you will find a way to please others as well as yourself. Don't expect everyone to be pleased with your choices.

Know your Ledge author:

• If you ever need to build an Andrew-trap, just write "Cheese" or "Free Books You'll Never Read" on the side of a box propped up with a stick.

• I once listened to a friend explain sabermetrics for about 10 seconds before I dismissing the entire practice as "overthinking it."

• If I had a nickel for every time I told my cat she is a "pritty kitty princess," I'd have enough money to buy her a third tiara.

• If you own a restaurant with "Fat" in its name, you already have my business.

• It is my dream to perfect the art of the dad joke, even if I never have children. Years of research and experimentation have resulted in the following: "Every table in my house is a 4-foot table because every table in my house has four legs." Admittedly, I still have a ways to go.

• I wonder what my grandpa's age was when he discovered the joys of storing things in his breast pocket. Because mine was 30.

• If you factor in the cost of every banana that went rotten before I got around to eating it, every banana I have eaten has cost me hundreds, possibly thousands, of dollars.

• Ever since I won my MacArthur Genius Grant, I've become way more delusional.
