Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Through a casual remark in an elevator, you will realise that both you and your fellow passenger have seen John Cleese’s informational film called How To Irritate People. By the time you reach the 10th floor, you will both be severely vexed with one another.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Today you will have a sudden and brilliant idea for how to eliminate the U.S. federal deficit. “Let’s all just pretend there isn’t one!”, you’ll say.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Time to stop beating around the bush. Beat the bush itself. Give it a good thrashing, and say “bad bush!” in a loud stern tone.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You’ll go out to dinner with a new person, soon. Remember the advice of my old Uncle Stonebender, though: “It’s fine if someone eats like a bird, as long as they don’t have kids.”
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You will discover what Shakespeare actually meant, when he wrote “Hey nonny, nonny”, in Much Ado About Nothing. It turns out that it was simply in-field chatter that somehow made it into the play, and that Shakespeare not only enjoyed softball, but was a reasonably good shortstop.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You will pass a sign that says “invorp” today. Fortunately, you will remember enough Dutch to know that it means “put your fingers in your ears and wiggle them”. They are a silly people, the Dutch.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Good day to begin writing that book you’ve been planning — “Growing Radishes Indoors”. It’s an idea whose time has come.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
An old nickname will surface today, much to your dismay, “Giggles”.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
About your new idea… Sure, I’ll bet you could sell your handmade voodoo dolls by marketing them over the Internet. The competition, however, can be “fierce”. You might want to stop and consider how many flights of stairs you’re interested in falling down, before you commit yourself to that course of action…
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You will be detained by the police today, on suspicion of having removed a tag from a mattress. Eventually they will let you go with just a warning.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
You will be followed by people who look suspiciously like shoe salesmen. Try to remain calm — they can sense fear.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Everyone will stare at you like deer in headlights this week at the office. Actually, you will later decide that driving your car around inside the office may not be your best-ever idea.
