SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Cut out this oracle and place it in an envelope along with the ace of hearts, petals from five different roses, a half-burned dollar bill, and a beautiful photo of yourself that's been kissed by the person who understands you best. On the envelope, write the following: "I am more capable of surprising myself than I ever knew. I am both wiser and more innocent than I've given myself credit for. Now I am ready to receive revelations that will make me happier and more useful to other people." Put this packet under your pillow for three nights, Sagittarius. You will have dreams and visions that give you clues about how to launch the next great story of your life.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Basements, closets, and caves are your power spots this week, Capricorn. Midnight is your lucky color and inward is your lucky direction. Your magic verbs are dig, descend, and disclose. Your frontier concept is "anamnesis," which means putting an end to amnesia. In light of the deep, dark riches that await you at the core of everything, here are the action steps I recommend: Delve into ancient trunks and reread old journals. Remember your ancestors and fantasize about your past lives. Stare at your navel and reminisce about what life was like when you still had an umbilical cord attached there.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
In January 1994 I took a three-day workshop with the mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade. So potent were the changes he helped catalyze in me that I'm still working on them more than seven years later. I periodically refer to the 60 pages of notes I took back then. They serve as a continuing source of mystery and teaching. I'm bringing this up, Aquarius, because for the next few weeks there is a window of opportunity for you to find an educational experience that'll play an equally transformative role in your own life. Now here's a taste of Meade's ideas: Addictions are poor substitutes for the rituals you need but have not yet found.

A Novel by Rob Brezsny

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
If you could win a free Porsche just by eating a bowl of live cockroaches, would you do it? How about if you could get an innocent man freed from prison by hanging upside down with your legs tied to a tree branch? Would you live in a cave without bathing for a month if that would win the heart of an incredibly attractive person you adore? Those may all be ridiculous hypothetical situations, Pisces, and yet they're only slightly more outlandish than the choices you imagine your life is forcing you to make right now. Please try to see that in order to get what you want it's not necessary to make a sacrifice as big as the one you fear.
Take a trip in your imagination to the future, where you will visit the person you'll be four years from today. What is the most important message you have to convey to him or her?
