AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Let your innovative imagination lead the way, and use your insight and intelligence to entice others to help you reach your goals. People from your past will be an asset to you now. Romance is highlighted.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Concentrate on important partnerships. Honesty will be the key to making sure you have the same ideals and goals in mind. Don't limit what you can do by giving in to someone's whims. Speak up, and go it alone if necessary.

If Going to a Play Were Like Going to a Rock Concert:

• There'd be a crappy one-act before the actual play, with 45-minute set change.

• Most audience members would be wearing T-shirts from other plays they had seen but not the $40 T-shirt of that night's play — which, despite complaining about the ridiculous price, they still bought.

• Intermission would be one actor doing a 15-minute monologue called "The Drum Solo."

• Instead of people bringing roses on opening night, they'd bring guns AND roses.

• That Equity actress ain't taking the stage unless her dressing room has 24 clementine oranges in it. Not 23. Not 25. Exactly 24. AND SO HELP YOU GOD IF SHE SPOTS A TANGERINE.

• Audiences wouldn't mind paying money to see the same play over and over and over again.

• Cast parties would feature even crazier and drunker regrettable sexual encounters.

• At the end of an especially good performance, the actors would destroy their props by smashing them onstage.

• Cats would be on its fifth farewell tour.

• Patrons would sew extra pockets inside their clothes to smuggle as many airplane bottles of their favorite cabernet into the show as possible.

• "Hello [name of city]. Are you ready to Shakespeare?"

• People would start smoking pot as soon as lights dimmed in order to "really feel the words, man."

• Audiences would rarely ask for their Nickelback.

• My wife would maybe actually go to one with me.
