Aries (March 21-April 19) – Walk everywhere backwards. I’ll call you backwards kid, or should I call you kid backwards? Get it? Keep your pants on this week – it’s going to be a chilly one.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) – Tippy tay on da tippy tie. Wadda ta. In other words, the average velocity of an African whooping sparrow is 57 knots.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) – If you eat a bowl of Hershey’s Kisses with the foil, your poop will be shiny. Yay!

Cancer (June 22-July 22) – You’re going to soar this week – like an eagle, over the snow capped mountains of the Colorado Rockies. If you are an eagle, however, you must have feathers on your feet. It’s a prerequisite.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) – You are the king of the world. However, that makes you Leonardo DiCaprio stuck on some boat about to strike an iceberg. But, there is good news. I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Aruba, Jamaica, ooooh I wanna take ya to Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama. Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go. Way down to Kokomo – we’ll get there fast and then we’ll take it slow. That’s where I want to gooohhhhoohhh. Way down to Kokohhooomoooo. These are more than just song lyrics.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct . 22) – Happy Birthday. Treat yourself to an ice cream cake from the Corner Store.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) – I’ll run away with you – to an alley, an island, a parking lot. Doesn’t matter, cuz we’re in love. Don’t tell the other Scorpios.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) – Put boots on all the parking vehicle vans so they can’t drive around and give you a boot. Put one on those funny little electric carts that people drive around in, too. And lastly, eat a lot of carrots.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Friday night I crashed your party. Saturday I said I’m sorry. Sunday came and I actually don’t care about your party at all. Sometimes you won’t always get what you want, but defeat only makes success that much sweeter.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) – The more you get rejected, according to probability, you become one step closer to acceptance. Keep putting yourself out there – you’ll stick. I promise.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) – Try dipping your favorite thing in chrome – to preserve it and make it shiny – unless it’s a candy bar, that’s just not worth it. I like Milk Duds.

(If you actually believe this, then you really do think that that the alums won’t be gawking at you and wondering if they ever were that young.)
