SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Welcome to the astrological month of Cancer the Crab. For you Sagittarians, this phase of your cycle often brings adventures that require you to adopt an approach very different from your usual modus operandi. Instead of wandering toward the far horizon with your eyes wide open and your arms outstretched, you're more likely to have to burrow into the underworld with your peripheral vision fully engaged. During the coming weeks, you may need to temper your hearty longing for discovery with a facility for cagey strategy. One other hint: If you're a maverick, this will be an excellent time to mess around with unsanctioned pleasures and unauthorized experiments.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
If you were a normal baby, you disliked olives, pickles, coffee, grapefruit, and mustard. Now that you've grown up, you probably regard several of those foods as tasty. In a similar way, Capricorn, I predict you will, in the coming months, develop an appetite for experiences that have always been off-limits or beneath your notice. One may have metaphorical resemblances to sauerkraut, while another will be like caviar and a third like hot candy imbued with the flavor of violets. You'll soon be amazed at the sensations that stir you to exclaim, "Yum!"
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You're now in the phase of your astrological cycle when you're most likely to attract the insight and help you need to heal your body. I suggest, therefore, that you go on a quest to change your relationship with your most distracting physical problem. You might start by taking an exuberant vow to do whatever's necessary to stop defining yourself through your pain. Perform a ritual (preferably full of dancing and laughing) in which you ask your liveliest spiritual sources for guidance about how to proceed. In short, Aquarius, treat this as a joyful celebration of your growing vitality, not a solemn struggle with an invisible enemy. For inspiration, check out Caroline Myss's book Anatomy of the Spirit.

PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20)
A few years back, an Alabama court upheld a ban on the sale of vibrators, ruling that there is no constitutional right to an orgasm. Astrologically, it's now a perfect time to overturn that law. If you're a Pisces in that state, enlist the help of a tantric ACLU lawyer. The rest of you should undertake some equally practical action to advance the cause of rapture. How about reading up and trying some exotic erotic techniques? Make a list of five pleasures you habitually deny yourself and then pursue them all.
"Centuries of travel lore," says author Phil Cousineau, "suggest that when we no longer know where to turn, our real journey has just begun." Give an example from your own life. Write: email@example.com.
