aries d Due to the outstanding protuberance of the Ram, Ariens tend to be extremely horny.

aries d Aries is the sign of the Spring Equinox, so it's no wonder that when Spring comes, Ariens come out to frolic.  Ariens are given to tasteless public displays of affection.  Only Ariens went nude at Woodstock. 

aries d Most flashers are Ariens.  Fortunately, this exhibitionist tendency usually "peters out" quickly.

aries d Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac; Ariens tend to think they should be first at everything.  First in line, first out when the bell rings, first to take up the latest fad diet.  Fortunately, they're also first to admit their plentiful shortcomings.

aries d Ariens tend to have blonde hair and blue eyes, to be tall and broad-shouldered (especially the men), and to have fair complexions.  A sense of superiority dominates their life, and they often have delusions of taking over the world and... wait a second, did you say Arien... or Aryan?

aries a Quick, get out of the house!  That threatening phone call you got a little while ago was coming from the UPSTAIRS EXTENSION! 

aries a You're not as funny as you think you are.  Don't give up the day gig.

aries a Today would be a great day to finish that correspondence you've been thinking about.  Be sure the letters are firmly glued on and your instructions are clear and concise.

aries a Don't go around acting smug about your new raise.  Remember, Willy Nelson owes more in taxes than you'll make in your lifetime.

aries p You or someone very close to you will have a baby today and name it "Bryce" if it's a boy or "Alyssa" if it's a girl.  Gag me with a diskette.

aries p You're going to end up on somebody's "10 Worst Dressed" list today.

pisces d Pisceans tend to be short, fleshy and stooped.  Those born under the sign of the fish also tend to have webbed fingers and vestigial gills from their innate desire not to participate in evolution.  If you're a Pisces, have you felt the sides of your throat lately?

pisces a Pisceans should avoid being shellfish and should develop a sense of porpoise.

pisces a Piscean men and Aquarian women are the most compatible lovers.  What could be more natural than a fish in water?

pisces a Fish and guests begin to stink after three days.  This goes double for Pisces guests; they begin to stink after a day and a half.

taurus d Taurus is the sign of the bull.  Tauruns tend to be excellent at shooting it, throwing it, and stepping in it.

taurus d Born under the sign of the bull, Tauruns tend to be stubborn, overweight, and should avoid swatches of red fabric (which often enrage them).

taurus d Tauruns have delicate egos, prefer to be called amigos, and enjoy kissing picadors.  (It's a Ferdinand reference, don't worry if it went over your head.)

taurus d Tauruns enjoy snorting, pawing at the ground, and defecating wherever they damn well feel like it.  It's best not to ridicule them for this behavior, since they're also very sensitive.

taurus d Most Tauruns enjoy goring Spaniards and running naked through narrow streets. 

taurus d Tauruns enjoy receiving high stud fees for doing things that other folks have to pay to have done to them.

taurus d Tauruns are particularly touchy about jokes concerning how much they resemble bulls, so don't poke fun at them unless you don't mind being pinioned to a tree through the stomach by their long horns.

taurus d While Tauruns are extremely sensitive and high-tempered individuals, they're also blessed with some of the longest reproductive instruments in the entire Zodiac... making them popular at parties.

cancer d Cancerians make excellent authors and journalists.  George Bernard Shaw, Ernest Hemingway, and Aldous Huxley were all Cancerians.  Of course, they're all dead now, so it doesn't do you much good to be an author, does it?

cancer d If you're born under the sign of the crab, you're likely to be sentimental, ambitious, unstable, personable, and at your best when dipped in butter with a little lemon squeezed over you.

cancer a You're getting pale and a little yellow around the eyes.  You're putting on weight and those bags under your eyes are getting worse, too.  You need a vacation desperately.  Tell your boss I said so.

capricorn d Capricorn is the sign of the sea-goat.  Nobody's ever really seen a sea-goat, so nobody knows much about Capricorns.  In fact, there are no Capricorns, only people born on the Sagittarius cusp or the Aquarius cusp.

capricorn d Capricorn, the sign of the sea-goat, is the most far- fetched of the sun signs.  The water-bearer and the virgin are unbelievable for obvious reasons, but a sea-goat?  Get real.

capricorn d Capricornians tend to be terrible writers.  Mozart and Schubert were both Capricorns and were infamous for their poor writing.  Capricorns also tend to be lousy musicians; James Joyce and Gertrude Stein, both of whom were tone-deaf, were also both Capricornian.

capricorn d Capricornians tend to be warlike.  Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and General Douglas MacArthur are all Capricorn-born.  In fact, put all the Capricornians on an island together and in two days, bang, no more Capricornians.  And wouldn't the world be a better place?

capricorn d Those born under the sign of Capricorn tend to be humble, hard-working, highly ethical and moral, very kind and attentive, emotionally supportive and optimistic.  In short, really dreary people who rarely get invited to parties.

capricorn p You will watch "The Tonight Show" for four more years before you realize that Johnny Carson isn't just on another vacation... he's actually off the show.

capricorn p You will be involved in an automobile collision with a rich fortuneteller and be arrested for striking a happy medium.

capricorn p You will meet an old friend who is now a Shriner.  You won't be able to remember his name, but his fez will be familiar.

capricorn p Next week, you will see a model home.  But she won't invite you in for coffee.

capricorn p Next spring, you will learn to speak French.  Unfortunately, the quality of your "merci" will be strained.

capricorn p This weekend, You will ask a local restaurant for one of their recipes.  Unfortunately, they will refuse to reveal their sauces.

capricorn p Your indoor plants are going to die.  Try to remember:  take care of your peonies and your dahlias will take care of themselves.

capricorn p You will invent a stain-proof molybdenum kitchen sink.  You will name it "The Unbrownable Moly Sink."

capricorn a Your loved one knows all about that affair you're having with that cheap, rotten homewrecker, but isn't saying anything yet.  In fact, everybody knows about it.  'Fess up.

capricorn a Get a tube of Canker-B-Gon or some Cold-Sore-No-More.  If you don't need it right now, you're going to need it shortly.

capricorn a Better stop cooking in those aluminum pans, they can cause Alzheimer's Disease.  And while we're on the subject, better stop cooking in those aluminum pans.  They can cause Alzheimer's Disease.

capricorn a Have you heard about this new thing called "deodorant soap?"  It's a remarkable invention.  You ought to try it sometime.

capricorn a You want advice?  Get a shave.  Especially you Capricorn women. Your moustache makes a statement.  The statement is "too much testosterone."

capricorn a Don't be humble.  You're not that great.

capricorn a Try not to gossip or conjecture about other people's sex lives. Sex is nobody's business but the three people involved.

capricorn a It is better to be a coward for a minute, than to be dead for the rest of your life.

capricorn a Never accept advice from a computer.  Think for yourself.  Don't take someone else's wisdom at face value.

libra d Libra is the sign of the scales.  Thus Libra-born usually have dandruff, psoriasis, eczema, seborrhea, dry skin, and elephantiasis.  Is it any wonder that some countries have established "Libra Colonies" on islands in order to isolate these people?

libra d The only non-living sign of the zodiac, Libra is considered by modern astrologists to be the most desirable of the sun signs, although the ancient Greeks and Romans preferred Virgos.  I mean, who wouldn't?  But just try and find one!

libra d Libra is admired because it is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty.  However, Saturn also rules Libra, and Saturn is the planet of sternness, righteousness and discipline.  This explains why so many Librans are schizophrenic S&M freaks.

libra d They are scholarly and studious, quiet and very well-educated.  While perhaps a bit too meek and mild, they are nonetheless the type of people others turn to for answers and guidance.  Wait, did you say "Librans" or "Librarians?"

libra d Libra represents equilibrium and justice.  Thus many Librans grow up to be lawyers with inner ear infections.  Librans also enjoy giving people free advice, but a Libran's advice is worth just what people pay for it. 

libra a Your biggest problem is that your eyes tend to bulge when you stare at the monitor or explain something.  Either stop staring at the monitor and explaining things or get some blinders so the rest of us don't have to see your eyes bugging out of your skull.

libra a Be a little more discreet.  That cranky old woman who lives next door has been calling the police and complaining that you constantly whistle dirty songs.

libra a Stop worrying so much about whether or not people like you.  Just accept the fact that they don't and they never will.  There, now do you feel better?

libra a The most important advice for Librans to keep in mind is "grow old gracefully."  Of course, it's too late for you, but maybe you can pass this advice on to someone who hasn't already made a fool out of him or herself.

libra a Learn to be more forgiving of other people's shortcomings.  After all, the world has been pretty tolerant of your stupid damn mistakes.

libra a Today would have been a good day to stay in bed... anybody's but your own.

libra a Be nice to everybody you meet today.  Somebody you know is armed.

libra a Librans should be careful not to take astrology so seriously.

libra a Smile and nod your head a lot today.  Thinking for yourself can be dangerous.  Don't do it.  This should be no problem.

libra a Today would be a great day to undertake a home improvement project. Fix your pet!

libra p A lifelong love affair will end for you today.  Your right hand is going to leave you for somebody else.

libra p A gnarled old woman is going to offer you a shiny red apple today. Use caution.  Make one of your in-laws try a bite first.

libra p Someone close to you is going to be injured in an explosion.  Remove all cans of aerosol pasteurized processed cheese food product from your home, unless you're looking for a messy lawsuit.

libra p Unfortunately, you are going to choke on a piece of food today. Fortunately, somebody knows the Heimlich maneuver.  Unfortunately, that person lives in the Australian outback.  Sorry!

libra p You will see your true love today.  Unfortunately, the videotape must be back by five, or you'll never get to browse in the adult section again.

libra p You will come down with the 24-hour flu tomorrow.  Knowing you, you'll stretch it out to 72 hours with a little acting.

libra p You will herniate yourself today.  Fortunately, you'll recoup the hospital costs by charging neighborhood kids 25 cents to see it pop in and out.

libra p You're about to be taken by a smooth-talking salesman who will convince you to insulate your home with snazzy aluminum siding.  You are SO gullible. 

libra p You will befriend a small, lost-looking furry creature this week. You will also get a series of painful rabies injections.

libra p (This prediction is for entertainment purposes only and is not meant to foster a belief in astrology.  Void where prohibited by law.  Not applicable in GA, FL, MA or DE.)  Your prediction:  you will have good luck today.

scorpio d The sign of the scorpion, Scorpio has long been considered the most dangerous sign of the zodiac.  Most people named "Bubba" are Scorpios, as are gang leaders, mass murderers, and anyone who's a product of inbreeding.

scorpio d There are many positive aspects to being a Scorpio.  Scorpios are few in number, don't stay around for long, and tend to receive long jail sentences.

scorpio d Those born under the sign of Scorpio tend to be impatient, hyperactive, energetic, ambitious, and as a result, the most intensely disliked people on the face of the earth.  Fortunately, they tend to burn out and die young.

scorpio d The Scorpion is the only venomous symbol of the Zodiac.  Thus it is easily understood that Scorpios are gossipy, malicious, social climbing, and tend to have long, curved appendages that spurt poison.

scorpio d Scorpios, like their namesakes, make a show of being rugged and dangerous.  Also, like scorpions, this is mostly facade.  Scorpios are fragile, small, have poor eyesight, move slowly and, when they prove troublesome, make a pleasing crunching sound when mashed underfoot.

scorpio a Don't pick it!  You'll only make it worse.

scorpio a Stop worrying about being a success.  Concentrate on enjoying life.  There are no successful Scorpios anyway.

scorpio a Try wearing looser-fitting clothing.  It will hide that unsightly bulge.  You know what I'm talking about.

scorpio a Be more sensitive to the differences between men and women. Remember, there is a vas deferens between the two.

scorpio a Learn to drive the big rigs.  Those men make real money!

scorpio a Never mudwrestle a pig.  You'll get all muddy and the pig will love it.

scorpio a Recognize your uniqueness.  Before they made you, they broke the mold.

scorpio a The best revenge is to live long enough to be a problem to your children.

scorpio a Remember, there's a broken light bulb for every heart on Broadway.

scorpio p You will lose your "Drug Free And Proud" ribbon.  Two days later, you'll catch a neighborhood kid smoking it.

scorpio p Psychics will lead police to your body.

scorpio p You will have a child who is so ugly that you'll have to hang a pork chop around its neck to get the dog to play with it.

scorpio p Unless you act now, you will never survive the next ice age.  Try to warm up.

scorpio p Your significant other is going to run off with a fragrance salesperson.  But don't worry, you're also going to be laid off from work, so it's not like you're going to have time to dwell on that love thing.

scorpio p You will soon experience true happiness and gain unbelievable wealth.  (Yeah, and I'm Lawrence of Arabia, and you're hard at work right now.  Right.)

scorpio p You will suffer a massive heart attack while "Sweatin' To The Oldies."  The last words you hear will be Richard Simmons exhorting you to "get up off that big fat tush of yours."  What a horrible way to go.

scorpio p You are going to die on April 19th, 1998.  Whoops, I'm sorry, the Astrologer's Guild says we're not supposed to reveal that sort of information, even if it's the absolute truth.  Forget I said anything.

scorpio p One day you're going to park in the woods with your lover and the guy on the radio will say there's an escaped convict on the loose with a hook, so you'll go home and there'll be this hook hanging from the car door. This really happened to a friend of a friend of mine.  No, really!

virgo d The sign of Virgo is cool and moist.  Virgos thus tend to migrate to Phoenix, where they become drier and hotter.  This makes them wrinkle early in life; most Virgos could use a good ironing.  Granny Clampett was a Virgo.

virgo d Virgos tend to be thin and manipulative.  Given those tendencies, they make excellent petty thieves, locksmiths, and escape artists.  They're also very adept at using shrimp forks, tweezers and catheters.  Frederick Carmichael, known throughout history as "The Father of Urology," was one famous Virgo.

virgo d Virgian babies are the happiest babies in the world.  They drool a lot, gurgle merrily, enjoy exploring their toes and genitals and look in wonderment at the hazy world around them.  Unfortunately, this behavior continues for the rest of their lives, making them poorly adjusted (if happy) adults.

virgo d Virgo is a cold, feminine sign.  If you're a Virgo woman, chances are you're frigid.  If you're a Virgo man, chances are you're gay and impotent.

virgo d Virgo is supposedly the sign of the Virgin, but let's be honest, shall we?  There are no real Virgos left.  In fact, the people who claim they're Virgo don't even qualify.  But don't you wish you could find one?

virgo a Save water.  Kill an Aquarian.

virgo a Give a Libran a heart attack.  Rub up against one and say, "I want you to be my first!"

virgo a For a good time, call the 1-900-SIERRA-X line.  Hear REAL Sierra On-Line game characters' TRUE confessions!  Learn Rosella's secret fantasies! Call now!  Only $14.95 a minute.

virgo a Moderation in all things... including moderation.

virgo a Cultivate an interest in the Classics.  Seduce a senior citizen tonight.

virgo a There's no need to do any housework at all.  After four years, dirt doesn't get any worse.

virgo a It is easier to be forgiven after the fact than to get permission before the fact.

virgo a If you'd show a little bravery and admit to the world that your ancestors were gay, perhaps a few of your skeletons could come out of the closet.

virgo a Three words for Virgo-born to remind themselves of every single day:  lather, rinse, repeat.

virgo a Like most Virgos, you're probably in need of a good bill-consolidation firm.  Consult the Yellow Pages.

virgo p You're going to fall and won't be able to get up!

virgo p There's something you've been worried about for years, but put your mind at ease.  When you're dead and buried, the worms will definitely not play pinochle on your snout.  That's merely something kids tell each other to be cruel.  (They will, however, eat the goo-goo between your toes!)

virgo p You will appear on a national game show and come off looking like a fool.  Remember:  it's "buy a VOWEL!"

virgo p You're only supposed to read one of these predictions every day. Otherwise they won't come true.  You've blown it for today.

virgo p You will be involved in a consumer taste test.  Unfortunately, you will choose the wrong beverage and thus lose out on the lucrative "hidden camera" TV contract.  Pick the other drink.

virgo p You will amaze your friends and neighbors by pointing out their philtrals, which they never even knew they had.

virgo p You will meet a tall, dark, attractive stranger who will sweep you off your feet and sell you a Comfort-Matic Reclining Chair with Vibro-Massage. 

virgo p This coming Friday afternoon about 5:45 p.m., you're going to crack one of your front teeth.  Since your dentist won't be available until Tuesday, you'll spend days trying not to smile or talk, but your tongue will constantly be exploring that uncomfortable new gap.  Argh!

virgo p You will soon see a new comedy action film about a couple of mismatched cops who have to work together.  It will be the feel-good movie of the year!

virgo p You will visit an Emergency Room soon.  There you will meet a distraught male celebrity carrying an empty gerbil cage and a roll of electrician's tape.

leo d People born under the sign of Leo are sickly, flaccid, confused but highly-motivated.  As a result, Leos make excellent clowns and mass murderers.

leo d Leo women are clinging, jealous, selfish, insensitive, two- faced, backstabbing, greedy, irresponsible, shrill, arrogant bimbos.  Leo men are honest, hard-working, long-suffering, generous, and should absolutely stay away from Leo women.  My ex-wife and I are both Leos, so it just goes to prove it.

leo d People born under the sign of Leo tend to be gullible and naive.  If you're a Leo and you'd like to find out more, send $25 in cash to Al Lowe, in care of Sierra On-Line.  (Sorry, just joshing... you Leos are a great bunch of guys, really.)

leo d Leo the Lion is the symbol of offensive power.  Thus, most Leos have bad breath, body odor, and tend to emit strange and curious sounds at the dinner table. 

leo d Strong and masculine, Leos are too often accused of being unwashed and ungroomed.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  They are simply fulfilling their destinies.

leo d Leos tend to be belligerent, insensitive and have delusions of superiority.  In short, most Leos are full of Taurus.

leo d Do you realize that somewhere in the world there are folks born under the sign of Leo and who were NAMED Leo?  Somebody who'd do that to their baby doesn't deserve to be a parent.

leo a Attempt to be more like Ghandi: thin, tan, and moral.

leo a Eat a big breakfast and a big lunch and cut out dinner entirely. Studies show that Leos tend to die at the dinner table.

leo a Here's how to add hundreds of years to your life span:  just figure your age in dog years.  You could live to be 400!

leo a Don't you think it's about time to upgrade that piece of junk you've had for years?  Sure it is.  So get your mother-in-law a tummy tuck, a face-lift, liposuction, and have those varicose veins stripped.  While you're at it, get yourself a new '486!

leo a Ever notice how people kind of turn their heads to the side whenever you talk to them?  Do you suppose it could be... your breath?  Get a clue!

leo a Leos tend to be workaholics, so try these simple daily stress-reduction techniques:  kick the dog, break a vase, punch the wall, chew your nails. Feel better?  Of course you do!

leo a Never accept rides from strangers unless they're willing to offer you candy.

leo a Love used to mean never having to say you're sorry.  Now it means never having to learn you're HIV-positive.

leo a You're getting a reputation in your neighborhood as a sleazy, wanton sexpot.  This explains the sudden influx of party invitations.

leo a Wise up.  Leos tend to be the gullible sorts who believe that the more magazine subscriptions they buy, the better their chances of winning the Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes.  It doesn't work that way, rube.

leo a Try to avoid chemical additives and remedies, and increase your use of holistic and natural remedies.  For instance, did you know that rubbing a split jalapeno pepper on chapped lips will make them heal quicker?  Try it and see!

leo p You will soon realize that you've blocked out an entire year of your early life, during which you had an affair with JFK.  (Then again, who didn't?)

leo p You will make the mistake of purchasing something with a tag that reads, "This item is handcrafted and may exhibit small flaws and imperfections that only add to its charm and uniqueness."  You are a dope.

leo p You will meet your real parents today (and you never even knew you were adopted!).

leo p You will discover a small chancre that answers to the name of "Ravi."

leo p You will discover firsthand that there is indeed an afterlife. Unfortunately, you will discover this within the next 48 hours.  Close out all unfinished business.

leo p You will lose your golden pince-nez and, since you haven't the vaguest idea what the hell a pince-nez is, you'll never find it.

leo p You will receive a surprise phone call from Angela Lansbury, who will ask you if you have any questions about buffered aspirin you'd like to ask either her or Patricia Neal, who's listening in on her bedroom extension.

leo p Close friends will tell you that you have an enormous split end.  Several hours later you'll realize that they weren't referring to your hair.

leo p Your evil twin from a parallel universe is going to wreck your life. Oh, well!

aquarius d The bad news is that in 2 AD, Vettius Valens wrote that Aquarians were "effeminate, inflexible, wicked, infertile."  The good news is that the traditional tropical zodiac is out-of-step with the current sideral zodiac. So everybody who thinks they're an Aquarius is really a Capricorn now.

aquarius d Aquarius is generally regarded in classical astrology as the best sign.  The Roman writer Manilius wrote of Aquarians in the 1st century AD as, "the good, the pious and the just."  Interestingly enough, Manilius himself was an Aquarian, which tells you about their lack of humility and inflated sense of self-worth.

aquarius d Aquarians are gentle, shy, and tend not to take a firm stand on anything.  For those reasons, the most famous Aquarians are young entrepreneurs who found hardware and software companies.

aquarius d Aquarians have this superiority thing, just because the Fifth Dimension said this was the dawning of the "Age of Aquarius."  Well, this so-called "dawning" is on the cosmic scale; it won't be the Age of Aquarius until about the 24th century.  It's gonna be the Age of Pisces for almost another 400 years.  So get a grip, hotshots.

aquarius d Aquarius is the sign of the water-bearer, a symbol of helpfulness and service to others.  Sort of an extraterrestrial "Meals on Wheels," this is more like "Jars on Stars," but the concept is the same.  Aquarians are here to serve, and should know their place.

aquarius a Get down off your high horse.  It's dangerous to ride an animal who's been ingesting controlled substances.

aquarius a Beware of unwanted sexual attraction from a small dog.

aquarius a Don't hesitate to accept any offers that include disrobing, vegetable shortening, or girls named Tawny.

aquarius a Eat a bullfrog first thing every morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.

aquarius a Try to make new friends; write your name and phone number in the company restroom.

aquarius a You'll enjoy the company of young people today.  Remember to ask her for proof of age.

aquarius a "Be yourself" is the worst advice anyone could give you.

aquarius a If you give it your all, you have the ability to win at anything today... unless there's another entry.

aquarius a Your psychic powers are at their height today.  Whatever you do, be sure you don't you-know-what with you-know-who you-know-where.

aquarius a You're better than Winston Churchill, because you're ugly and he's dead, but in the morning you could get plastic surgery.

aquarius p Somebody very close to you is going to be accused of consorting with a moron.

aquarius p You will buy a new insurance policy, fortunately just in time. Unfortunately, just in time to collect accidental dismemberment benefits.

aquarius p You will misplace your epididymus.  Sorry, that's all the spirits told me.  You'll have to look it up.

aquarius p Travel opportunities abound; you are most likely leaving town at the business end of a 12-gauge shotgun.

aquarius p There is an unexpected business opportunity in your future involving spike heels and edible underwear.

aquarius p You will become enamored of your Davy Crockett hat and be subsequently labeled a furvert.

aquarius p Your name and likeness will be featured on a line of fashion pocket protectors.

aquarius p Stephen King will write your biography.

aquarius p The good news is you will win the heart of a beautiful girl.  The bad news is it will be in a jar of alcohol.

aquarius p You will buy five copies of "Laura Bow II:  The Dagger of Amon Ra" and make your favorite game company very, very happy.

gemini d The sign of twins together, Gemini represents bonding in all forms of life.  As such, Geminians tend to bond to anyone or anything that passes their way.  If you're a Gemini, chances are you have lots of meaningless, shallow relationships... just the way you like 'em.

gemini d Gemini is the sign of the heavenly twins, Carol and Paula (whose names were later altered to Castor and Pollux to sound scholarly).  Their playfulness and youthfulness are their chief qualities and, coincidentally, are what makes them incredibly annoying.

gemini d People born under Gemini tend to excel at political endeavors, especially those involving the diplomatic service and the legislature.  This is due mostly to their love of cocktail parties, carousing, infidelity and young boys.

gemini d Geminians are really decent people.  No kidding, they're very respectable, nice, ordinary folks.  I mean ordinary in a good way... like not quite dull, but dependable and regular.  Really quite nice guys.  Did I mention how decent they are?  Salt of the earth.

gemini d Geminians are said to be quick-witted, good at repartee, and easily able to go from one job to another.  Translation:  they're con artists, three-card-monte dealers, pimps and drug pushers.  Of course, you'll say that's not you, but if you really think about your job, perhaps you'll be honest with yourself.

gemini a Try not to be so overtly emotional or "wear your heart on your sleeve."  After all, who's going to take you seriously if you walk around with a heart on?

gemini a Be happy.  People like you.  Then again, people like "L. A. Law," so maybe you shouldn't be so complimented.

gemini a It's well and good to give a few bucks to charity now and again, but a huge donation to the San Andreas Pro-Earthquake Fund is being generous to a fault.

gemini a Philosophically, Geminians tend to be existentialists.  Thus, they also rarely commit suicide.  After all, have you ever tried to kill yourself by jumping out of an arbitrary construct?

gemini a Now would be a good time to invest in chickens.  You can probably pick up a few for a poultry sum.

gemini a Choose your religion wisely.  Jesus saves, Moses invests, but only Buddha pays dividends.

gemini a Don't leave the White House today, whatever you do.  Oh, wait a minute, for a moment there, I thought you were Nancy!

gemini a Do something to liven up your surroundings.  Prune the mold in your bathroom?

gemini a You're in a rut.  Get out of the house.  Go somewhere.  Meet people.  Do something at least once a year, instead of staring at a cathode ray tube every waking moment.

gemini p Someone will knock you off your high horse, but you'll get right back on it again before you lose your nerve.

gemini p You ought to be in pictures, and will be; in post offices and police stations all across America.

gemini p You will become president of a fried chicken chain and hire eleven guys named Herb as secret spies.

gemini p You're going to stay out until all hours, go God-knows-where, and end up lying in a ditch somewhere.

gemini p Close friends will prove friendly before long.  Don't be surprised if a congenial comrade responds to you in a pleasant and friendly way.

gemini p Large chunks streaking towards earth from outer space are aimed at the base of your skull.  Avoid locations less than two miles underground this week.

gemini p You are about to experience the awe and mystery that reaches from the inner mind to the outer lobby.

gemini p You will have a nightmare in which Israel and Syria appear as guest stars on "Too Close For Comfort."

gemini p Food will provide comfort and solace to you during a forthcoming breakup.  Choose wisely.  Cannelloni is probably just about the right size.

gemini p Something will make an impression on you shortly.  Beware of falling anvils, safes, and pianos.  Speedy recoveries are unlikely.

sagittarius d Sagittarius is the ninth and longest-named sign of the Zodiac.  Despite the fact that Sagittarians are idealistic, love education, and hopelessly optimistic, they're the least likely to successfully spell their own sign.  Sagittarians are single-handedly responsible for the decline in SAT scores.

sagittarius d Sagittarius is the sign of the archer; it is associated with flying and journeys to distant lands.  In fact, Sagittarians are enthusiastic travelers, eager for any chance to explore new terrain. However, it's the other signs of the Zodiac who are most grateful for the chance to have a Sagittarian go away somewhere, hopefully far away and permanently.

sagittarius d Words that typify the Sagittarius-born are:  optimistic, generous, eager-to-please, exceptional, special, and different.  Remember, the polite answer to "Oh my lord, what in the world is wrong with your baby?" is "It's a Sagittarius, and we couldn't be happier, thank you." 

sagittarius d Sagittarians are idealistic, often to the point of fanaticism.  Were it not for Sagittarians, many celebrities and politicians would still be alive today.  But Sagittarians aren't likely to dwell on their moments of insanity, but rather to spend most of their time pointing out the shortcomings of others... as if to make their own faults appear less cataclysmic by comparison.

sagittarius d Sagittarians are those A-types who will stop at nothing to get their way, no matter how cruel or ruthless.  Fortunately, new legislation requiring a seven-day waiting period before allowing Sagittarians to purchase certain items will help prevent many of those dreadful mistakes they're so apt to make.

sagittarius a Fear not.  God is alive and well and autographing Bibles at B. Dalton's.

sagittarius a Don't give up on that home improvement project you started just because it seems extravagant.  Many insurance companies will cover plastic surgery if your doctor prescribes it for your mental well-being.

sagittarius a This is an especially difficult period for you.  Symptoms will be uncontrollable skin eruptions, 60-pound weight gain, painful uncontrollable flatulence, stupidity, and a drastic loss of self-esteem.

sagittarius a Don't ignore medical concerns.  Have a doctor take a look at those cleft gonads.

sagittarius a Your current relationship, although physically satisfying, is one-sided and will ultimately prove unsatisfactory.  Try switching hands.

sagittarius a Try to break that bad habit today.  It's particularly disgusting, and you're becoming less and less able to camouflage it as a thoughtful "scratch your nose and stroke your bottom lip" gesture.

sagittarius a Spend much more time reading.  You're beginning to assiquate your tenality with basic English.

sagittarius a If today is your birthday, you're pushy, obnoxious, frequently insensitive and tend to cut people's egos to ribbons without even realizing it.  Happy Birthday!

sagittarius a Make allowances for other people's mistakes, no matter how grave.  Look at what your parents got away with!

sagittarius a Increase your metaphysical position in the universe.  Giving your body to someone on a higher spiritual plane (like, say, an astrologer) is the best way to reach new levels of Kharmic divinity.  Heavenly bodies only.  Send letter and photo c/o Sierra On-Line.

sagittarius p Your plans for a partnership will fall through.  The size of your bribe is embarrassingly small.  Try again when you can afford a whole Congressman.

sagittarius p This is not a good year for foreign investments.  Actually, this is not a good year for investments.  In fact, this is not a good year, period.  This year sucks.

sagittarius p Family members will figure prominently for the next few weeks, especially those with prominent figures.

sagittarius p Farm animals will keep you on your toes this month.  Consider elevator shoes.

sagittarius p Keeping your sanity should be your goal these days.  Do something constructive.  Quit work.  Oh, you already have!

sagittarius p Household pets will prove useful next weekend.  Try to keep an open mind.  Remember, some cultures consider this a delicacy.

sagittarius p Total strangers will pop up in the most unexpected places. Don't be quick to judge.  This may be an opportunity to live out your wildest fantasies.

sagittarius p You will develop several stress-related ailments, including ulcers, psoriasis, and hemorrhoids.  You will add the words "Social Outcast" to your vocabulary.

sagittarius p Bodily fluids will play an important role.  Aquarius holds sway over Sagittarius, meaning temporary water-weight gain, especially above the neck.

sagittarius p Sagittarius gently enters Virgo this month, and Gemini comes into your sphere and threatens to beat you up if you don't get your filthy hands off their sister.
