SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Sagittarian Janos Bolyai was born in Transylvania in 1802. By age 20 he was an accomplished violinist, mathematical prodigy, skilled linguist, and the best swordsman and dancer in the Austrian Imperial army. At that time, he wrote a 26-page paper that was tacked on as an appendix to a long mathematical textbook penned by his father. Janos's contribution turned out to be revolutionary. Long after his dad's tome was forgotten, his short treatise helped lay the foundations for a complete system of non-Euclidian geometry. I'd like to make him your patron saint for the next six weeks. I believe that you, too, are primed to spawn a pithy creation that will not at first receive due credit; you, too, will establish a landmark that'll turn out to be more influential than what seems important now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Maybe you have faithfully acted on my counsel for years, and yet have still not become rich, married a gorgeous genius, or been profiled for your brilliance by The New York Times. Does that mean I've failed you? Is it time for you to move on to a more useful prophet? Well, if the goals I named above are your most cherished aspirations, I do indeed suggest you re-evaluate your relationship with me. If on the other hand you'd like to master the art of being happy no matter what your external circumstances are, stick around. The opportunities to do that will be especially good this week.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
Is there anything you can do to attract heavenly grace? Can you coax God into granting you sweet favors by being a really nice person who follows all the rules? Some theologians say "no way." In their view, the gift of grace is a product of divine whim, and can neither be cultivated nor predicted. Other commentators timidly suggest "maybe": There is a possibility that one's good works can stimulate the Creator's generosity. I don't know the answer myself, Aquarius. But I do suspect you'll soon be visited by an act of mercy that looks suspiciously like supernatural kindness. So you tell me: Have you earned it, or are you simply a random beneficiary?

PISCES(Feb. 19-March 20):
You should now have your sixth sense trained on the corrupt entity you want to overthrow. Your spies should have fully infiltrated the inner circle. Your intelligence reports, I hope, are streaming in. Soon it'll be time to gather your top allies for one last pep talk and strategy session. I suggest you plan the coup for sometime between October 11 and 18. So is there anything missing from your data? Maybe just this counsel: Listen to what has not been said. Watch what has not been done. In absence and silence you will find out the rest of what you need to know.
We all have a war going on inside ourselves. What's yours? Is it a just and fruitful war or a senseless and wasteful war? Tell all at www.freewillastrology.com
