SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
"In teaching my students," says Waldorf teacher Meg Gorman, "I try to figure out what questions I can ask that have no right answer. I seek to frame paradoxes, to force the student to develop original thought." If you follow my column, Sagittarius, you know that this is my recipe for becoming a soulful human being. Fondness for mystery and comfort with ambiguity are always sound approaches to life, in my opinion. But they're especially so now. You're in a phase when your sleeping potentials can only be awakened by asking impossible questions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
I have a vision of you dressed in a snappy black leather ensemble, your eyebrows perfectly sculpted from a session with an image consultant, your speech booming charismatically from your diaphragm after a few sessions with a voice teacher. Are you also wearing a silk scarf? Yes. It's terra-cotta colored, made in Bali. In my psychic revelation, Capricorn, I see you in your town's hippest eatery, dining on coq au vin, surrounded by a bevy of movers and shakers who are hanging on your every word. "What a sexy catalyst!" is the thought playing in the backs of their minds.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
For Buddhists, bodhisattvas are souls that have reached enlightenment but have forsworn nirvana so that they might continue to be reincarnated and work to liberate all sentient beings from suffering. Bodhisattvas don't always have conscious knowledge that they are noble saints, and even those who do sometimes keep it a secret. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, for two reasons. First, whether or not you are a bodhisattva, the cosmos is now inviting and even pushing you to act like one. Second, this is a perfect moment for you to expand and experiment with the role that generosity plays in your self-expression.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
Some people feel polluted when they look at porn; some, when they eat Pringles and Twinkies. Myself, I experience a sense of violation after being exposed to celebrity gossip. And yet, if I've learned anything about how to maintain a healthy relationship with purity, it's that a fanatical adherence to it is as dangerous as a compulsive rejection of it. This will be especially true for you Pisceans in the coming weeks. Therefore, my dear Fishes, I exhort you to rebel cagily against any urge you might have to be in total control; I urge you to not remain spotless and lily-white. (Just to prove I practice what I preach, I promise to read People magazine cover to cover.)
