ARIES (March 21-April 19) (*****) You want to take another look at what might have been bothering you about a new acquaintance. Meanwhile, detach from the problem, go off, and enjoy yourself. You have more to your destiny than worrying about this or that. Yes, someone will suddenly spark up your days. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) (*****) What you believed was a given provides unanticipated magic.

THE OTHER day on its "Philly Sports Talk," Comcast SportsNet ran a poll asking, "In which coach/manager do you have the most faith?" That Chip Kelly finished dead last amid a season in which he might finish with a losing record for the first time in his head-coaching career is a bit surprising, even in our uniquely mercurial environment. It is beyond perplexing, though, to see his approval rating more than doubled by Sixers head coach Brett Brown, whose winless team has turned the ball over more than 50 times in the last two games.

D EAR ABBY: Last year my boyfriend and I moved across the country to Arizona so he could be closer to his friends and family. My entire family lives on the East Coast. Recently it seems like our plan to marry and start a family keeps getting pushed further and further into the future. I'm 35; he's 47. Neither of us has been married or has kids. I'm beginning to regret having uprooted my life for someone who is unilaterally changing the timing of what I thought we both wanted.

I can still remember the day my daughter, Eve, promised to take me to Paris. I was sitting at the kitchen counter, and she was telling me of her dreams. It's something she's always done because, from the time she could talk, Eve has been a dreamer, and I have been her kindred spirit. Eve's dreams are painstakingly specific: a pink Infiniti convertible; male and female shih tzus; shopping sprees funded by her job as a lawyer; a corner office with a view. However, this dream of Paris is different from the rest.

Hannah Zach said her Central Bucks East soccer team had to "figure it out. " Figure out what, exactly? The Council Rock North defense. The Patriots like to play long balls over top of the defense to isolate forward Emma Loving. There, the Penn recruit can do her thing to spark the offense by taking the ball herself or distributing it to a teammate. Against the Indians' back line Saturday, C.B. East was having trouble getting the ball over the top to Loving. Zach called it "difficult.

Hello there In February 2012, Mike met a few of his beloved Flyers at an autograph event in Warminster. "How do you feel to be playing with Nicklas Grossmann?" he asked Andrej Meszaros. The defenseman said he'd just met the guy, but they'd be playing together the next day. Mike was still pumped when he met his buds at Stephanie's Restaurant & Lounge in Doylestown - Mike's hometown. One friend did not want to leave the woman he was dancing with, so Mike grabbed them some beers.

After two weeks of polls compiled by the College Football Playoff selection committee, the prevailing thought is: Those folks really don't like the Big 12 very much, do they? The number of unbeaten teams in the conference dropped from three to two last week after Oklahoma State's thrashing of Texas Christian, but neither Baylor nor the Cowboys moved into one of those coveted top-four spots. The Bears stayed at No. 6 this week, and Oklahoma State moved up six spots to No. 8. Baylor will face a ranked team for the first time this season when it hosts No. 12 Oklahoma on Saturday night.
