SAGITARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Astronomers rely on telescopes to gather the observations that serve as their raw material. Not all their time is spent gazing up at the heavens, however. They have plenty of opportunities to work on "cloudy-night problems," interpreting and massaging their data when the skies are overcast. You're in an analogous phase, Sagittarius. At least for the moment, you can't glean any more crucial clues from peering outward into the glittering sprawl around you. Everything you need to know is contained within the observations you have already made and the information you've already registered.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): How many times have you wondered what your life would be like if your imagination hadn't been squelched by the educational system? What great happiness and marvelous feats might you have already claimed if your natural love of learning hadn't been crushed by bad teachers and inept pedagogy? It's the right astrological time to launch a quest to undo the damage, Capricorn. Imagine I've just handed you an undiploma: your official release from the oppression of your formal education; the beginning of your healing from the wounds perpetrated on you by your early schooling.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If you were out walking and spied a penny on the sidewalk, would you stoop down to scoop it up? Probably not. How about a higher denomination coin? Or is it your policy to never compromise your dignity for anything less than a dollar? If so, Aquarius, I encourage you to suspend your usual rule in the next two weeks. Metaphorically speaking, bending down to snatch a penny will set in motion a series of events that will lead to you finding a hundred-dollar bill. In other words, it's only by taking advantage of tiny unexpected rewards that you'll put yourself in a position to harvest the bigger kind.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): "Three times my life has opened," begins Jane Hirshfield's poem by the same name. "Once, into darkness and rain. Once, into what the body carries at all times within it and starts to remember each time it enters the act of love. Once, to the fire that holds all." Now that you've had your imagination piqued by Hirshfield's testimony, Pisces, I'd like you to survey your memories and identify the magic moments when your own life opened. Jot down a few notes about them, please. That should prime you to recognize and be ready for the next big window of opportunity, which will arrive any day now.
