SAGITARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You were born to be a hunter. Not the banal version of that archetype, of course: not the gunman who shoots helpless animals for sport. Rather I'm referring to your tireless search for meaningful expansions that nourish your soul; your courageous eagerness to go anywhere and try anything in order to discover delicious truths; your restless seeking of initiatory adventures that educate the wise animal in you. As the world around you sinks deeper into an obsession with comfort and consolation in 2003, Sagittarius, I suggest you raise your expression of the hunter's arts to a higher octave.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I predict that in 2003 you will become more skilled at getting the most out of conflict. That's not to say you'll experience more discord than usual; rather, you will approach disagreements with a more constructive attitude. You'll be inclined to regard them as learning opportunities instead of inconvenient distractions. On many occasions they'll be interesting and energizing, not dull and draining. You'll be less likely to let your ego get all wrapped up in the outcome of your arguments, and should therefore enjoy them as if they were entertaining games. Congratulations in advance, Capricorn.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I recently asked my readers, "What influence do you not want to bring with you into 2003?" Bridjet wrote, "The influence I don't want to bring with me is the silly notion that when you fall in love with someone, and they fall in love back, that you should become a single, unified organism." In psychological jargon, what Bridjet refers to is called enmeshment. It's when two people become such a we that neither person keeps working on being a me. Though our culture idolizes this pathological state as the supreme model of romantic love, it's often a dead end. Here's a healthier model: two strong, well-defined individuals choosing to interweave their unique destinies. That's the standard I urge you to aspire to.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): "Dear Rob: I dreamed I was gazing through a camera with a telephoto lens. I spied a distant tree with a bird's nest that contained two big eggs. A cat had just arrived and was carefully settling down on them to keep them warm. What does it mean?Piscean in Santa Cruz." Dear Piscean: I believe you've had a prophetic dream for the entire Piscean tribe. Here's my interpretation. In 2003, you Fishes will have an opportunity to nurture an influence that you've previously been inclined to mess with or destroy. Or else you will forge a close alliance with a budding thing whose nature is very different from yours. Or maybe both. In either case, you'll be invited to overcome your natural tendencies in order to earn a double blessing.
