ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider your motives before you ask for something that may be unreasonable. You stand a better chance of getting what you want if you are willing to give something in return. Offering an incentive can make your plans move forward faster.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may want to look into upgrading your skills or discussing opportunities with your colleagues or boss. An opportunity to make a move that will help you explore new avenues is apparent. Don't settle for less when you can have more.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Listen carefully, but don't make financial, medical or legal decisions until you see enough proof that you are making the best choice. Nothing is as it appears, and time is on your side. A home-improvement project will make your life easier.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Refrain from making changes based on what others do or say. Trust your own judgment, and believe in your abilities. A romantic adventure will help you revitalize an important relationship that can be so much more. Choose equality over giving up.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't give in to depression when you have so much going for you. Expand your interests, and visit destinations that provide hope and offer you incentives. Don't let anyone or anything drag you down. You have what it takes to excel.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Community events will be exhilarating. Express your thoughts, and the changes you want to make will draw some people in and push others away. It will be a quick way to weed out who you want or don't want in your life.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotions will spin out of control, disrupting your day. Try to get along with everyone, and step away from anyone looking for a fight. An intelligent approach and generous, well-meaning people will keep you out of harm's way.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't give in to big talkers trying to sell you something you don't need. Focus on home and conserving rather than spending and adding to your stress. Uncertainty regarding a job is best treated cautiously. Look for ways to lower your overhead.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can raise your standard of living if you make the right moves. Opportunity knocks, and travel or relocation can play a role in what you learn, gain, or change to improve your lifestyle and future prospects.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Indecision will strike if someone puts pressure on you. Back away, and take a moment to figure out how you want to handle what's going on around you. Being productive and doing the best job possible should be your main concern.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look at potential opportunities and partnerships, but don't make a commitment until you have had a chance to consider doing your own thing. Don't fold under pressure, or you will lose equality as well as control. Protect your health.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look for a deal, or draw up an agreement. Negotiate, and take control of whatever situation develops. You have more going for you than you realize. Put your plans in motion. Celebrate your win with someone you love.

I’m an undecided voter (part 2 of 2):

• I'm ardently opposed to Obamacare, BUT I did support the Affordable Care Act.

• I believe that Congress cannot change while American citizens remain so supremely polarized and overly opinionated; I stand by this belief 100 percent and WILL NOT BUDGE.

• I feel there are positive aspects to a society with increased levels of socialism, BUT I also think Facebook has gotten big enough.

• I don't think the evidence for global warming is scientific or compelling, BUT I do support building a wall (of energy-producing windmills) along the (Canadian) border (to help blow cool air into the United States).

• I know that every time a waitress gets health insurance an iceberg melts, BUT l also know that lowering taxes for the wealthiest 1 percent increases the price of solar power for those on Medicaid.

• I oppose both the death penalty and assisted suicide, BUT I'm also in favor of decreasing the prison population by allowing convicts serving life sentences to suicide-bomb abortion clinics.

• I believe that anarchy is the only way society moves forward, BUT I also know how important it is that we unite under a strong leader with good organizational skills in order to realize this dream.

• I'm with Marx in believing that "The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope," BUT I also think we should hold on to the noose because communists can't make rope for shit.
