CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Maybe you've seen a bumper sticker that says, "He who dies with the most toys, wins." It carries two implications about how to be victorious in the game of life. First, it suggests, you should retain the playful spirit you had as a kid. Second, you should build up your self-worth by accumulating possessions. Here's a slightly different formula for success, borrowed from Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai's poem "1924": "Whoever remembers his childhood best/is the winner . . . " As you begin a new search for the fountain of youth, Capricorn, this is a far better keynote than the bumper sticker slogan. What can you do to rouse more of the fresh, spontaneous, innocent love of life you had when you were four years old?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
Leaving behind her beloved Europe, Anaïs Nin arrived in New York full of misgivings. "I hate it," she wrote about the city in one of her famous diaries. "I find it superficial. [It's] an ugly prison." She was not unwilling to have her mind changed, however. "Make me love New York," she told photographer Alfred Stieglitz, a longtime resident. "Show me what you love." I exhort you to be inspired by Nin's challenge in the coming week, Aquarius. Pretend I have come to visit you. Imagine all the places you'd take me and the experiences you'd give me to demonstrate what delights you about your home turf. This will put you into sweet alignment with the astrological omens, which suggest that you should shake off the numbing trance of over-familiarity and rekindle your excitement for your everyday life.
PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20):
I trust you took my advice last week and celebrated the holidays I created for your use. Let's get you started on harvesting the fruits of the intense learning experiences that hopefully resulted. If you observed Ask Crazy-Like-a-Fox "Stupid" Questions Day, you gathered rich information with which you can now heal an aching rift in your life. If you celebrated Defy All Weak-Heart Conceptions Day, you'll soon be able to free yourself from the parasitic effects of half-assed commitments. As for the Festival of Sauntering Past the Edge of the Known World: The hard part of the saunter should be over; the really fun stuff will get underway shortly. There's still time to relive all these fresh feast days. Better tardy than never! The complete list is on my Web site:www.freewillastrology.com/allsigns032300/042502all.shtml.
