SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Ancient Greek philosopher Plato said he'd ban poets from his ideal society. Why? Because of their power to rouse unruly passions, for one thing. Plato feared that a poet's rhetorical skill could turn off his listeners' defenses and trick them into believing wild ideasmaybe even influence them to abandon behavioral norms. For instance, if I were a poet, I might try to inspire you to protest the widely accepted ugliness you see around you every day. I'd lure you into committing brash acts of beauty and truth, and incite you to fight tenderly for love and goodness, and coax you to tell everyone you know that evil is boring and you don't want to hear any more stories that glamorize it. But since I'm an astrologer, not a poet, I'll simply inform you that cosmic luck will be on your side if you carry out all the above.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

The gifts you have to give are so fantastic, it would be a crime for you to be stingy in doling them out.

Act as if every move you make will send ripples of influence to the ends of the earth, ultimately affecting everyone alive.

PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20):
Once upon a time, your fate got tangled up with the twisted destiny of a beautiful monster. Well, technically it was a person, but "beautiful monster" is an apt metaphor. From the start, the give-and-take between you and this bigger-than-life creature was chaotic, refreshing, debilitating, and soul-deepening. Ultimately, you had to extricate yourself from the snarled web the two of you wove. Now it seems that a new version of the beautiful monster is lurking in your vicinity. I have reason to believe this one is tamer than the original, though, and less addicted to the philosophy of "no pain, no gain." Still, I urge you to proceed with caution.
