What's in the stars for Adrian Peterson? What spooky future awaits the hard-to-handle Chris Paul? On the eve of Halloween, certified sports astrologer Andrea Mallis ran readings for a cosmic look at six NCAA movers and shakers.

MIKE KRZYZEWSKI, Duke basketball coach
BORN: Feb. 13, 1947 (Chicago)
READING: "Aquariuses can be very stubborn, which may explain why he passed on the Lakers job. I ran his forecast through March, and it's kind of a mixed bag: December looks quite strong [Valparaiso, Toledo], but in January and February [ACC time!], things really shift and he'll experience a rough Neptune aspect, meaning his confidence will decrease and he may lose determination and persistence. Oddly, after March things will pick up."
BOTTOM LINE: ACC play will be tough, and this just may be the year he says bye-bye to Duke.

MATT LEINART, USC quarterback
BORN: May 11, 1983 (Santa Ana, Calif.)
READING: "Tauruses are stable and reliable but can be possessive and jealous, which may have conflicted with ex-girlfriend Veronica Kay, who is a Sagittarius. She appreciates her freedom. I'm not surprised they didn't work out; those aren't usually compatible signs. In terms of football, his career is looking very strong. He has a positive physical energy aspect to his Mars now through the end of this year -- just about Heisman time. Matt's chart looks a little stronger than Reggie Bush's in terms of being victorious in competitive events and being resilient under pressure."
BOTTOM LINE: "Leinart-Bush in 2004" will soon become a Leinart solo act.

ADRIAN PETERSON, Oklahoma running back
BORN: March 21, 1985 (Palestine, Texas)
READING: "He was born on the first day of Aries, and his chart says his December should be a favorable period for recognition of one's performance. However, I see that in the last couple weeks of December he may be too optimistic and overexaggerate. I see an excellent aspect for all-around success in 2005, including favorable financial dealings. He may receive gifts, beautiful objects and comforts."
BOTTOM LINE: An early exit from Oklahoma? Gifts are NCAA no-nos, unless that gift is a trophy, perhaps?

DICK VITALE, ABC/ESPN analyst
BORN: June 9, 1939 (East Rutherford, N.J.)
READING: "Dick, a Gemini, has been in a cycle of mental tension that occurs once every 248 years. It started in February 2003 and will go into February 2005. In this cycle he has to be aware of embracing fanatical ideas [Michigan State No. 6?] and behaving self-righteously [Duke obsession!]. His intuition should clear up, and 2005 looks much better."
BOTTOM LINE: Don't put much stake in Dickie V's preseason Top 30, but heed his words come tourney time.

CHRIS PAUL, Wake Forest point guard
BORN: May 6, 1985 (Winston-Salem, N.C.)
READING: "I just want to tell Chris, 'Run for the hills!' He'll be in a low-energy cycle in January and February and will become sensitive, vulnerable and moody. His confidence will weaken, and he'll blow his failures out of proportion. Life will seem unfair. I think he'll be very prone to a sophomore slump. At the same time, if there's one sign that's drawn toward financial security, it's Taurus. If there are lucrative contracts to be had, Chris might be very tempted."
BOTTOM LINE: Scratch the Deacons from the No. 1 spot, and don't even think about 2006 yet.

CANDACE PARKER, Tennessee forward
BORN: April 19, 1986 (St. Louis)
READING: "Being an Aries, she's very competitive and won't want to wait out her recovery from knee surgery. She's also having a Saturn transit, which moves the bones, knees, teeth and joints. The cycle runs from October through November, and then again in June and July 2005, which might mean another injury-prone period. It's also interesting that she plays for Pat Summitt, who is a Gemini. Pluto opposes the sun right now, and when that happens -- once in a lifetime -- these Geminis are really fired up. It's not a very patient time, and these people are obsessed. Let's hope Coach lets this poor girl heal."
BOTTOM LINE: Most-hyped freshman hoopster in recent memory needs to take some "Candace time."
