SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22Dec. 21): Let's say, hypothetically, that you came into possession of an instrument that might allow you to wield supernatural power: a magic wand, for example, or an Aladdin's lamp, or ruby slippers like the ones Dorothy had in the story of the Wizard of Oz. But let's also hypothesize that the instrument had a quality that made it problematic for you to use: Maybe the wand was six feet long, weighed 200 pounds, and was hard to pick up, let alone wave around; or perhaps the ruby slippers were much too small to fit on your feet. What then? I suspect that the vignette I just outlined is an apt metaphor for the dilemma you will soon face. There is a solution that will allow you to tap into the mojo of the magic instrument, but you'll have to be dogged and ingenious to discover it.
CAPRICORN(Dec. 22Jan. 19): Ernest Hemingway didn't find it easy to let go of his novel A Farewell to Arms. He revised the last page 39 times. Like Hemingway, Capricorn, you have been displaying a bit of obsessive-compulsive behavior as you put the finishing touches on your long-term projects. But according to my understanding of the astrological omens, you shouldn't allow closing time to last beyond December 18. Please try to wrap everything up by then. If there are still a few messy details that are driving you half crazy on December 19, forget about them as best as you can.
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20Feb. 18): It's always a smart idea to be kind, but especially so right now. Your benevolent acts are desperately needed by the people whose lives you touch. Being generous is also important for the sake of your own selfish needs; you won't meet your appointed date with destiny unless you're unrestrained in doling out blessings. By the way, kindness is much more than doing nice, polite deeds. It's also about stirring up surprising acts of beauty, imaginative eruptions of love, catalytic breakthroughs of justice, and artful expressions of liberation.

PISCES(Feb. 19March 20): I am pleased to inform you that you have been granted a special dispensation in the coming week: a temporary exemption from cosmic compulsion. During this grace period, fate will have a dramatically reduced power to whip you around like a rag doll in a gale. You will be virtually immune to the ravages of peer pressure, guilt trips, and the nagging little voices in your head. While it is of course impossible to completely escape the tyranny of the clock, you will experience a release from the most ignominious debilitations of that tyranny. In fact, you may have more free will than you've ever had before. In the days ahead, playtime is never over.
