SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Sculptor David Nash owns five chain saws of different sizes, according to art critic Kenneth Baker, and "wields all of them with improbable precision." That's the first way Nash is a good role model for you in the coming weeks. You will need to manipulate large-scale influences to accomplish subtle and delicate changes. There's a second reason Nash should be an inspiration for you. His work doesn't require the destruction of living trees; recycled wood provides much of his raw material. Like him, you will get the best results if you find new value in stuff that has outlived its usefulness in its original form.
CAPRICORN(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
As smart as you often are at creating wealth, Capricorn, I'd like to invoke a little magical help to provide you with an extra boostespecially now, with the sun, Venus, and Neptune throwing a party in your astrological House of the Almighty Dollar. That's why I've got a few money spells for you. Enjoy. (1) Wear a $20 bill in your underwear for three days. (2) For five minutes right before you fall asleep on the next 10 nights, visualize your bedroom piled three feet high with large-denomination bills. (3) Glue a picture of your favorite goddess to the middle of a $5 bill, then tack it to the wall next to your bed. Make love with a cute ally underneath the goddess-enhanced money for exactly 44 minutes, stopping for one minute four different times to pray for emotional, spiritual, and financial wealth.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
No one should have to be ensconced at work eight hours a day, five days a week, week after week. Such relentless regularity is an affront to body and soul. One alternative is to create a job situation that allows you more flexibility and spaciousness. I'm pleased to report that you will attract unexpected assistance if you dream and scheme to do just that in 2002. Don't assume that you will have to make financial sacrifices in order to enjoy a looser schedule; in fact, you're more likely to finagle the pay and perks you want if you're faithful to the fantasy of treating yourself with loving kindness.

PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20):
Writing in The New York Times, Nick Gillespie praised the way cartoon rabbit Bugs Bunny teaches kids "powerful, subversive truths from which adults try to shield them." Among the lessons: "Smart alecks have more fun. . . . Mocking authority is often the right thing to do. . . . Tortoises beat hares (especially when tortoises cheat) . . . and. . . a sense of humor is the only way to make it through." Bugs's approach to life will be especially useful for you between now and February 15, Pisces. It won't be enough, though. You'll need many other subversive truths as well. I'll even go so far as to say that this is the season of subversive truth.
