SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
I have a personal opinion about which side is more at fault in the conflict between Israel and Palestine, but so what? To express it might give me the satisfaction of letting you know who I am, but it would contribute nothing to the only important issue, which is how to stop the killing and foster a lasting peace. Amazingly, a similar principle is at work in your own sphere: As long as blame dominates the discussion, as long as everyone is attached to the correctness of their analysis, then the smartest solution is impossible to even imagine. Serve love, Sagittarius, not vindication.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
This week brings Turn Beauty Inside Out Day. How to celebrate? Ridicule the epidemic compulsion to worship physically attractive people. Boycott magazines that use pretty faces to sell their useless information. Spit at airbrushed photos of celebrities who have parlayed extensive cosmetic surgery and a squadron of stylists to create the illusion of outward perfection. Once you have all that healthy rebellion out of the way, Capricorn, enjoy Turn Beauty Inside Out Day in a more constructive manner. You might start by organizing an Inner Beauty Contest among your cohorts. The funny thing is, you'll probably win. The astrological omens agree with what my magic mirror is telling me: Right now, you are the fairest of them all. You're psychologically gorgeous, spiritually lovely, and ethically ravishing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
I don't usually encourage acquisitive behavior. The current astrological omens, however, suggest that you deserve a special dispensation IF (and it's a big IF) you're motivated by your soul's hunger, not your ego's greed. Find a way to pull that off, Aquarius, and you'll have license to gather up a huge cache of goodies. Actually, it shouldn't be too hard to do just that, since the available treasures have little appeal to your need for status and a lot of appeal to your longing for meaning. Your nickname for the foreseeable future: Honey Collector.

PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20):
On an episode of the kids' TV show Even Stevens, overachieving teenager Ren decides she needs to display more school spirit by joining the pep squad. It'll look good on her résumé when it comes time to apply for college. Unfortunately, peppiness doesn't come naturally to Ren. The head cheerleader has to lecture her on improving her attitude, admonishing her to "reach deep down inside and find your Perky Place." There are far more profound reasons for you to follow this same advice right now, Pisces. You can't imagine how important it is for you to practice being devoutly cheerful, sublimely upbeat, and fiercely optimistic.
