SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): During a 15-month period from 1888 to 1889, Vincent van Gogh churned out more than 200 works of art. In one 10-week stretch he produced an average of a picture a day. I predict that you will soon slip into a comparable phase, Sagittarius. Original ideas will come surging up into your awareness with such relentless exuberance that you'll be hard-pressed to catch them all. Quick: Decide where you want to channel all that prolific creativity; don't let it leak out wastefully.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Prizewinning gardener R.J. Harris has no interest in astrology or New Age notions. And yet, like generations of his family before him, he carefully monitors lunar cycles. Practical observation has proved to him that certain parts of the cultivation process go best when done during certain phases of the moon. In his book, R.J. Harris's Moon Gardening, he suggests sowing the seeds of below-ground crops right after the new moon. (Like now, for instance.) In the early days of the second quarter (April 9 through 12), he advises, plant seedlings and above-ground crops. At the outset of the fourth quarter (April 23), add fertilizer to the soil. Prune later (April 28 through 30). I happen to believe, Capricorn, that these same principles apply to your own growth.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I've been following the progress of a patch of ground a mile from where I live. A year ago it was a grubby gully, a no-man's-land between two suburban McMansions. A ruined shack, long abandoned, stood at the bottom, imprisoned by thick underbrush. Then bulldozers arrived to clear away the thickets and raze the rotting wood structure. Three months ago, another crew arrived to contour the land and create a level spot for construction. Metaphorically speaking that's where you are in your life right now. Do the equivalent of what happened this past week, when the foundation was poured for a new home on the land that was once a grubby gully.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In accordance with astrological omens, I have selected two words that convey the role you're best suited for in the coming week. The first is the Yiddish term tummler, derived from tumlen, to make a racket. A tummler stirs up a commotion, makes things happen, and incites people to action through his or her affectionate agitation. Clowning and pranks may be part of a tummler's repertoire. Your second word of power, Pisces, is the Iroquoian ondinnonk. It has two related meanings: (1) a secret wish of the soul, and (2) the angelic part of our nature that longs to do good deeds. Now here's the punchline of your oracle: Let your ondinnonk guide you as you carry out your mission as a tummler.
