SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): April is Feedback Month. In the coming weeks, everyone from your best friend to the janitor at work may barrage you with hints of what they think about you. A few of the reports will be fairly accurate representations of you, while others may resemble the reflections you get from funhouse mirrors. If you just relax your ego muscles and watch the mad rush of images as you would a comic movie, however, the overall experience will be rejuvenating.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): "Free will is there for the taking, like wild blueberries," writes poet Ellen Doré Watson, "a trifle more sour than we remember." In other words, Capricorn, your mouth might pucker and your eyes may squint when you first sample the ripe crop of free will that you'll come upon this week. But once you've experienced the sensation for a while, it'll start tasting sweeter. By this time next week, you'll be amazed at how delicious it is.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In my astrological opinion, you now have a sacred duty to cause good trouble. Please carry out at least two kinds of benevolent mischief from the following list. (1) Break taboos that serve no useful purpose. (2) Circumvent rules that are rotten or harmful. (3) Expose the manipulators who are trying to get everyone to buy into their delusions. (4) Trick people into rebelling against influences that are bad for them. (5) If you see friends or loved ones who are running on autopilot, give them lessons on how to wake up.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean actress Mercedes Ruehl won the Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the 1991 movie The Fisher King. Taking the stage at the awards ceremony, she exclaimed, "I shall never waitress again, and you are my witnesses!" She was almost 43 years old at the time. I foresee a comparable breakthrough for you in the coming months, Pisces. It may not be quite as dramatic as Ruehl's, but it will definitely free you forever from a task that has stifled or demeaned your spirit. And you can lay the groundwork for this victory now.
