ARIES (March 21-April 19): Check facts before you move forward with any changes that can affect your income. Impulsive action will lead to worry and regret. You will do much better taking your time and sizing up possible scenarios before making a move.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Secret dealings will have a negative influence on the outcome of a situation at work. Stick to a budget, and don’t feel guilty if you can’t or don’t want to contribute. Put your needs first, and keep moving.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t believe everything you hear or let an emotional plea lead you into an unforgiving situation. Focus on stabilizing important relationships and making your home a place of comfort, convenience, and affordability. Romance is in the stars.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take an innovative approach to whatever you face at work or at home. Avoid anyone trying to start an argument, and try not to make any last-minute changes that will affect your plans or your relationship with someone special.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can learn from the best. A business trip or educational excursion will lead to bigger and better opportunities. Keep your money and possessions in a safe place to avoid loss. Someone will use emotional manipulation to take advantage of you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stick to what has worked for you in the past. Don’t allow anyone to coerce you into a risky deal. A battle over money or possessions must be handled in a very secretive and unusual manner if you want to avoid loss.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Share your private affairs with a select group of people you know you can trust. Mingle with people who share your interests. A relationship will flourish if you discuss your intentions. You can make a promise or commitment and put plans into play.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep what’s said in perspective. Overreacting will lead to bigger problems. Put greater emphasis on what you can do to improve your community. Don’t settle for less when you know you want more.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep emotions in check and promises to a minimum. Concentrate on home improvements and building stronger ties with the people you care about the most. A property or investment deal will help ease your stress and stabilize your future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take baby steps. Someone will mislead you intentionally if you show signs of gullibility. Stick close to home, and protect what means the most to you. It’s important not to give too much information to an outsider.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Go after your professional goals. Make an effort to do the things you enjoy doing most. A chance to use your skills in a trendy new way will also generate extra cash. Expanding your circle of friends or family is favored.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotional matters will escalate. Question a partnership if the contributions being made aren’t equal. Pick up information and skills that will help you protect your interests. Don’t give in to persuasive tactics being used to get you to make a donation.

Random Thoughts:

• Infographic idea: an overlapping timeline of radio plays of “Master of Puppets” and speeding tickets issued.

• Does it really bother nobody else that we’ve started using the verb “behead” often enough again that it’s no longer jarring to hear it?

• I wish Broadway-quality plays were more like Madison Square Garden-quality concerts. If the crowd stands up and cheers long enough at the end of the show, the actors should come back out and do an epilogue.

• Let’s be honest; that thing near your feet is not a “space heater” so much as it is a “foot and shine warmer.” The SUN is a space heater.

• It’s kind of weird that when you’re exasperated enough to say “people suck,” a lot of times, people will agree with you.

• I can’t remember the last time I just relaxed and had a nice glass of wine— OH MY GOD, MY WIFE HAS BEEN DRUGGING MY WINE.

• There should be a thing you can do on Facebook somewhere between “liking” and “sharing” where you could register support for someone’s status while at the same time — actually, I’m just kidding, all of this is pointless bullshit.

• It’s disconcerting when I see coffee eat through a paper Starbucks cup because then I remember I put 20-40 ounces of that stuff into my body every single day. I spend many sleepless nights thinking about this. Actually, that might be the coffee, too.
