CAPRICORN(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Once I had a maniacal girlfriend who also served as my personal guru. Elisa's teaching techniques were an artful blend of torment and trickery. And though I could endure only a few months of studying at her wicked feet, I still treasure her rough pearls of wisdom. As she dramatically demonstrated, for instance, you can't reprogram yourself until you deprogram. And seeing as how deprogramming requires the destruction of outmoded brain circuitry, it doesn't always feel real bouncy and peppy and fluffy. What does this have to do with you? Everything. You're right in the middle of your deprogramming season, with the reprogramming phase soon to follow.
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
For the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras, there was no contradiction between logic and mysticism. On one hand, his seminal work established a scientific basis for mathematics. On the other, he asserted the existence of a literal "music of the spheres," an eternal symphony created by the movements of the planets. He also believed that by discovering esoteric truths about numbers he could understand the ultimate nature of reality. I bring this up, Aquarius, because I want to invoke one of his teachings to help you take advantage of the astrological phase you're in. Pythagoras called the number nine telesphoros, which means "ripener, perfecter, finisher." It is the number you should embody in the coming weeks. Visualize it often.
PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20)
The way I see it, every one of us needs regular wake-up calls. Otherwise we get hypnotized by the drone of routine and we forget what's real and true. Unfortunately, most of us passively rely on blind fate to provide the ongoing stimuli, which as a result are often more uncomfortable than they need to be. But it is quite possible to be proactive: We can learn to aggressively go out and drum up the riveting (but kinder and gentler) experiences that will rouse us from our lazy, hazy daydreams. I mention this, Pisces, because it's prime time, astrologically speaking, to learn more about this art.
