SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Every year the Color Marketing Group (CMG) at colormarketing.org issues a report that identifies the new colors coming into fashion, as well as their symbolic meaning. From their long list, I have selected the specific hues you should surround yourself with if you'd like to be in harmony with cosmic forces during the rest of 2003. (1) Lemon Meringue: "Silver flirts with gold in this zesty confection reminiscent of vintage roadsters," says CMG. (2) Shimma. "A shimmer, a shake, a lustrous flake, this pearlized metallic adds a savvy crackle to your communications." (3) Iron Ore-ange: "The influence of copper on orange creates a sophisticated background with primal undertones." (4) Exploring Khaki: "This safari green recalls rain forest moss and buried treasure."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Given how fresh and strong you've been feeling lately, you may not be in the mood to initiate a showdown with the Problem That Refuses to Die. Why risk getting demoralized by that boring old energy drain when you're so peppy? I'll tell you why: You now have a new and unprecedented advantage over the Problem That Refuses to Die. You may not be able to kill it off completely, but then again you might. And you will at least be able to dramatically limit its power to mess with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): "No work is more worthwhile than to be a sign of divine joy and a fountain of divine love." So says mystic and scholar Andrew Harvey, and I fervently agree. Not everyone is cut out for such an exacting career, of course. The pay isn't great, the hours are long, and the heroes who make it their main gig rarely get the appreciation they deserve. It's best to try it out for a while on the side without quitting your day job. Having provided those caveats, Aquarius, I'm pleased to inform you that this is the best time in years for you to work hard at being a sign of divine joy and a fountain of divine love.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your flavor of the week will be ginger peach or vanilla clove or some other blend of piquant spiciness and smooth sweetness. The kitchen accessory that best symbolizes your special skills will be a thick sponge that has an abrasive surface on one side for scrubbing dirty pots. The recurring dream you're most likely to dream for the last time, triumphing forever over the past trauma that originally spawned it, is the nightmare in which you feel like a cornered animal. Your haiku of power will be "melodious struggle where the soul turns crap into fertilizer."
