ARIES (March 21-April 19). Anything worth having is worth working for. Today, you'll rectify an unfair situation in keeping with this theme. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will be well equipped to meet the demands of your current social environment. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be free of the limitations that come with self-consciousness. Other people are not evaluating you, as they are too concerned with their own personal dramas to care. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You put family first, partially because you're a responsible individual and partly because you love to feel that swell of inner confidence that comes from contribution.

No, Amy Dougherty of Richboro isn't walking away with this sculpture titled "Gemini" at Bucks County Community College. She's just walking to class. Students flocked back to the college classrooms for the first day of school yesterday.

This ain't no cat, daddy. That cute, friendly bundle of fur seen cavorting around Allen Iverson's Gladwyne mansion lately is a Rottweiler puppy, a gift to basketball's bad boy for his 27th birthday on June 7, neighbors say. The pup's name is Gemini, neighbors said, and it reportedly was a present from a family member. Despite the trying times - A.I. holed up in his mansion waiting to surrender today to police to face charges of threatening two men while armed with a gun - the tensions haven't seemed to put a damper on the pup's sunny disposition.

When you see Gemini riding her bike, you don't have to look far to spot her sister, Laseana (sounds like Lashana). They enjoy doing everything together, and both rollerskate, run track, jump rope, and shoot baskets. Therapy has helped Gemini, 11, and Laseana, 9, deal with the abuse and neglect they experienced in their past. They saw their first movie only last year and are eager to learn computer and other skills unknown to them before. This fall, Gemini is going into fifth grade, and Laseana will be in fourth.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Feeling overwhelmed? It's a positive sign that your life is big and broad, rich and full. You've been ambitious. You've challenged yourself. Accept the anxiety that goes with this state. It will be far more comfortable than fighting it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Often the mental picture is better. Then there are times when it's not, when the real life version blows it away. Today those instances will be well worth the risk required, so take a chance. GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Certain people who know the facts may exaggerate and distort them for their own entertainment. If you take it too seriously, it's confusing. If you don't, it's fun. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You strive to leave the world better than you found it. Your commitment to add good cheer wherever you go will be the side project that becomes a main part of your legacy. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your leisure time is too precious to spend on entertainment you're not that into.

Craig Mullen is a working man's executive. An expert on the use of unmanned robot submarines, Mullen had been directing a crew of 27 in the choppy seas off Florida that had been combing the ocean floor for debris from the shuttle Challenger, which exploded on Jan. 28. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration called off that part of the search yesterday. Prior to the Challenger job, Mullen had directed salvage operations for the remnants of the Air-India flight that exploded off the coast of Ireland last year.
