CAPRICORN(Dec. 22Jan. 19): Why do human beings have no more genes than worms? Why do black sheep have a better sense of smell than white sheep? Why do more than 4 million Americans believe they've been kidnapped by extraterrestrials? Why do men have nipples? Why do Capricorns ask fewer questions than any other sign of the zodiac? I don't know the answer to any of those queries, but I do know that it's time for you to challenge the premise of that last one. Even if there's a grain of truth in the theory that you're not a gung ho practitioner of the spirit of inquiry, that's got to change. For the next six weeks, you should be the most persistent and imaginative question-asker in all of creation.
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20Feb. 18): Shamans and mystics down through the ages have insisted that the invisible universe is more vast and real than the visible one. In recent years, modern astronomers have adopted a similar perspective. According to the prestigious science journal Nature, the new consensus is that the cosmos is composed of 23 percent dark matter and 73 percent dark energy, which are utterly concealed from our five senses and undetectable by any known instruments. The stuff we can actually perceivestars, planets, trees, clouds, buildings, chocolate candy, other peopleis a mere 4 percent of everything there is. I bring this up, Aquarius, because it's an excellent time to cultivate your relationship with all that is unseen. Using your sixth sense, see if you can tune in to and fall more deeply in love with the Great Mystery.
PISCES(Feb. 19March 20): I've assembled three experts to provide you with astrologically apt counsel for the coming week. First, here's writer Christopher Morley: "Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity." Here's your second adviser, German writer and scientist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: "A person should hear music, read poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul." Finally, Pisces, here's a crucial tip from Oscar-winning actress Katharine Hepburn: "If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun."
