ARIES (March 21-April 19): Taking on a new project or investigating the possibility of a personal or business partnership is apparent. A pleasure trip is in order, but don't make impulsive plans. Do your research so you can enjoy the experience.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Networking will provide you with the contacts you need to further your plans and exploit your ideas. The interaction you have with others will help you develop something unique and serviceable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put your heart on the line. Follow your dreams, and push for what's important to you. Don't let someone's impulsive decision or move cause you to do something out of character that will set you back.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may have to rework some of your ideas to accommodate the people around you. Don't be concerned that someone doesn't agree with you. It's only a matter of time before you either convert or remove this person from your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Love is apparent, and time put aside to spend with someone special will make you want to do something to please. A few adjustments to your living quarters or a move will be exactly what you need to grab someone's attention and affection.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't let a financial situation paralyze you. Talk with confidence, and you will display how much you have grown mentally. Being self-assured will help you attract offers whereby you can implement your own ideas.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You need a vacation or at least time to contemplate your future and pursue the things you enjoy. Stop doing what others want, and start implementing new plans. Travel or a long distance move will help you explore new options. Don't sit idle; take action.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be aggressive when it comes to business ventures. You can make things happen once you realize you don't need anyone to further your goals. Follow through, and present and promote what you have to offer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The person you care for the most can help you out now. Talk from the heart and explain your desires in full — you will get the response you are looking for. Give and take will be the name of the game and the road to the future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You don't have to rush when no one else is ready to make a move. Use this time to develop an idea or concept, and eventually, you will be able to turn it into a moneymaker. Take care of personal paperwork, health, or settlements.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Talk about your ideas and plans, and you will attract someone who wants to share with you. Money and good fortune are present, and you can end up with greater cash flow as well as opportunities to get ahead. Innovative thoughts will bring monetary results.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Think before you disrupt matters of a personal or business partnership. You have to maintain a working relationship with people if you want to get ahead. Now is not the time to let your emotions take over.





Lessons Learned During my First week at Iowa:

• Contrary to the out-of-state beliefs I was taught as a young lad, Iowa is not merely a collection of cornfields. Iowa actually contains a few people and an apparently advancing proto-civilization.

• Iowans really know how to curb underage drinking. With the new 21 ordinance, underage students are now going to much safer house parties where they can do pretty much whatever they want (so as long as they keep the noise down) instead of malevolent, easily observable, and close-to-campus-and-emergency-treatment bars that prey on young, innocent souls.

• The University of Iowa student economy much resembles that of a prison's insofar as cigarettes routinely and effectively act as currency.

• Saying that Chipotle is better than Panchero's (or vice versa) will commonly lead to high fives or fist fights.

• If you're ever in a situation where you're about to get your ass handed to you, there's a fifty percent chance that shouting, "GO HAWKS!" will save you from a bruising.

• If ever in an actual dangerous situation, I would never try the "Go HAWKS!" defense. A well placed kick in the groin followed by sprinting in the other direction is your best bet.

• Informational dorm meetings are very helpful. I would've never guessed that throwing a kegger in my room and that bringing illegal drugs into the building was a bad idea—or that one could make explaining those two rules last an hour of my life that I'll never get back.

• This is going to be an incredible four (or five (or six)) years.
