SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
I'll understand if you don't feel up to accepting the glamorous but risky assignment I have to offer you; stay comfy and have a nice life, no hard feelings. If, on the other hand, you brashly agree to engage your higher destiny, I promise that your higher destiny will turn you into a force of nature. The fun could be legendary, but the responsibility awesome. Your title might be Hurricane of Love. Your technique would be creative destruction. Your goal would be to lovingly demolish the outmoded beliefs and structures that are subtly undermining your most soulful dreams.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
If you happen to see a man dressed in an emerald velvet cloak bordered by eagle feathers, and he is typing madly on a laptop computer with The Wall Street Journal by his side, I suggest you glide over and whisper this coded question in his right ear: "Lone wolf or social butterfly?" If he says, "Lone butterfly," leave him and immediately contact the seven people who would be most helpful in extending your web of allies. If on the other hand the business man-shaman mutters, "Social wolf," leave him and immediately formulate a daring plan to refurbish your web of allies.
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Even if you believe you don't have a poetic bone in your body, I urge you to compose three poems in the coming week. The gods will be happy if you do. One poem should be a love letter to the person who most captivates your imagination. A second should be a song of praise about yourself; it could be an outrageous boast or an amazed burst of gratitude for the wonder and mystery of you. The third poem should be in the form of a conversation with the divine presence you feel closest to. I suggest that initially you don't write down any of these lyrical cries of the heart. Rather, speak or chant them aloud while walking, with your only audience the trees and sky and animals.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Think back to your first descent into the abyss many years ago. You were a raw rookie at the time, and didn't have many skills to help you negotiate the dark, dank regions. It was no surprise that you came back touchy and scarred. But in each stint in the underworld since then, you've gained more proficiency at remembering who you are even when you feel lost. In fact, I believe that somewhere along the way you passed a crucial threshold. During your next visit below, I suspect you will not only feel a minimum of pain; you'll also discover uncanny pleasures that will sharpen your mythic vision and enrich your creative passion. Congratulations on the upgrade!
Pretend for a moment that you are not you, but rather your holy guardian angel. What might you say that will mobilize the stalled dreams of your ward? Write: firstname.lastname@example.org.
