TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get out, and do things in your community. Interacting will help you realize what you want to pursue and with whom you want to spend time. Travel and communication will lead to friendships and valuable information.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take a closer look at your financial papers, and reassess your status. Offer your services in a way that will help you bring in extra cash. Positioning yourself for advancement will bring good results. Mix business with pleasure, and forge ahead.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): What you do for others will count. Focus on love, dedication, and loyalty, and you will be respected for your convictions and strong beliefs. Romance will heighten your appeal and attract an unusual response from someone special.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Control whatever situation you face, even if it means doing a little extra work. If you let someone else meddle, it will be difficult to reach your goals. Make changes that leave an impression and separate you from any competition you encounter.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take care of business. Get discussions underway that will help you follow through with your plans, leaving a little time to do something special for you and the ones you love. You can make a difference. Romance is in the stars.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't let things get to you. Setbacks can be expected, especially when dealing with friends and family. Invest your time and energy into self-performance and improving your future. Change will bring you hope, and helping others will give you a purpose.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can take control and make things happen that will turn your home into something unique and special. Speaking up and sharing your intentions with others will help weed out who is with you and who isn't. Romance will improve your love life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take a broad look at what's going on around you, and protect your interests. A false impression is present, making it vital for you to question what others offer. Don't be fooled by empty promises.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone from your past will disrupt your day. Keep enemies at a distance until you have a good idea how to handle the situation effectively. You'll only get one chance, so wait, watch, and strike when the time is right.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Focus on having fun. Getting together with peers will lead to new opportunities. Look for an unusual project that you feel you can contribute to. The connections you make will help develop your skills and knowledge.

Halloween Need-to-Know Week - Werewolves:

• Werewolves are humans who turn into wolves during a full Moon. This makes them brutal, feral, and really good at basketball.

• Sometimes, werewolf fans will reference these creatures with the name "lycanthrope" — which would be less nerdy if only there were such a thing as "less nerdy" when discussing how cool werewolves are.

• Werewolves increase in both strength and sexual desirability with age. How else do you explain Jack Nicholson laying the smack down on James Spader and sleeping with Michelle Pfeiffer?

• Their dependence on the lunar cycle means that — for the vast majority of the time — werewolves look and act like normal people, and only two or three days out of the month do they become raging, unmanageable beasts that will eviscerate you without the slightest provocation. When you get right down to it, werewolves are a lot like girlfriends.

• Every seventh son of a seventh son is supposedly born a werewolf. As a result, there are far more Catholic than Protestant werewolves.

• Statistically, most people claiming to be werewolves nowadays are merely furries, and furries are relatively harmless, if pathetically sad. That said, if you must dispose of a furry, the best way is to deprive him/her/hir of his/her/its Mountain Dew.

• Werewolves cannot be killed by most conventional weaponry. They are, however, vulnerable to attacks from members of Bob Seger's backup band.
