SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Judging from the current cosmic omens, I surmise that you need to have a nice, long communion with the waters of life. You're overdue to be influenced by the vast oceans that cover 71 percent of planet Earth; you need to have a visceral experience of the fact that life originally sprang from the sea and that your body is 60 percent water. If you don't live within easy traveling distance of a trillion-gallon baptismal font, I suggest you obtain a conch shell, put it to your ear, and improvise a conversation. What should you talk about? Start by asking for help in feeling as deeply as you can about every aspect of your life.
CAPRICORN(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
To diet or not to diet? To eat organic or not worry about pesticides? To avoid genetically modified foods or act as if they're as safe as the old-fashioned stuff? These are worthy meditations anytime, but especially now; the cosmic omens say it's crucial to ponder more deeply what you take into the holy temple of your body. I challenge you, Capricorn, to come up with further questions to explore the mysteries of your relationship with food. For instance, do you know when you're really hungry and when, on the other hand, you are unconsciously craving love? Are you conscientious about making sure you're relaxed when you eat? Do you chew well enough? Would you consider playing with your mashed potatoes and peas more often?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
November 2001: In just their fourth year of existence, the Arizona Diamondbacks become World Series champions by defeating baseball's richest and most dominant team, the New York Yankees. January 2002: David slams Goliath, as the upstart New England Patriots edge the seemingly invulnerable St. Louis Rams in football's Super Bowl. March 2002: Duke, college basketball's top-seeded defending national champion, falls to long shot Indiana in a game sportswriters call a ''stunning upset.'' April 2002: In their own respective spheres, Aquarians become odds-on favorites to extend this amazing victory streak by underdogs.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
In Denise Levertov's poem ''Zeroing In,'' a man says: ''We had an old dog, when I was a boy,/a good dog, friendly. But there was an injured spot/on his head, if you happened/just to touch it he'd jump up yelping/and bite you.'' I'm sure that you, too, have a vulnerable place like that dog, Pisces, though it may not be from an actual physical wound. I'm guessing that you've built such an elaborate system of protection around it that no one ever gets close to brushing up against it. While this may have served you in the past--it has kept you from biting innocent bystanders, for one thing--it has now begun to shut you off from adventures you'd really benefit from. The time is ripe to let yourself be touched there by a smart healer.
