SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21)
It's doubtful that any of the anxiety addicts around you will offer much support if you obey the sensible urge to go into hibernation. Except me, of course. As a student of cycles, I understand that even big-thinking, far-seeing Sagittarians need periods of lying low, moving slow, and staring at the glow from their navels. Sometimes doing absolutely nothing is the best wayin fact the only wayto recharge your psychic batteries. Your subliminal word of power for the week is incubation.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19)
The gods and goddesses of ancient Greece were an unruly lot. For every blessing they bestowed on humanity, they unleashed a confounding trick. Their noble adventures were balanced by their petty emotions and ridiculous squabbles. A notable exception was Themis. She was unfailingly helpful and wise, the faithful goddess of justice and protection and good counsel. Mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade regards her as still active in the modern world. He believes that people tend to be in endless conflict unless Themis is present. She is the reasonable and imaginative unity builder who pulls together the things that don't usually connect. I nominate her to be your guiding spirit for the next three weeks, Capricorn. Call on her to help conjure up the combinations and consensus that will need an extra boost.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18)
This week a troubled teen in paramilitary garb may offer you $10,000 to join a team of mercenaries and kidnap a Colombian drug lord. DON'T DO IT, Aquarius! Say no, as well, to any other invitation that is both lucrative and risky, or appetizing and stupid, or dramatic and impossible to research. If you manage to resist the reckless proposals, I predict you will set the stage for a host of subtler, smarter enticements to come your way. Now study (and refute) this quote from Marcel Proust: "Impelled by a state of mind which is destined not to last, we make our irrevocable decisions."

PISCES (Feb 19-March 20)
With the authority invested in me by your guardian angel, I am pleased to announce that you are entitled to special privileges this week, as well as a straight answer to your most nagging question. With the no-nonsense, stay-out-of-my-way-or-I'll-bite-you attitude I learned from the pit bull next door, I hereby call on you to stop letting things slide with the people who are violating your autonomy. And finally, with the psychic foresight developed over 20 years of reading auras, I predict that you will soon receive an invitation to begin building a skill you have always been destined to master.
