SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22Dec. 21):In 2005, I hope you seek out more demanding and rewarding alliances. I'd love you to align yourself with a network that spreads your highest values with maximum intensity. My heart will also sing with joy if you use better tools to express your generous urges and try more daring strategies to promote justice. To encourage these developments, consider getting yourself these holiday gifts: a device that enhances your ability to communicate, a pep talk from the most practical idealist you know, and a talisman that symbolizes a promise you make to your future self.
CAPRICORN(Dec. 22Jan. 19): "I have climbed to the top of a greasy pole," proclaimed 19th-century politician Benjamin Disraeli when ascended to the job of prime minister of Great Britain. Picture that greasy pole in your mind's eye, Capricorn. I would love to give it to you as a holiday gift. It would be an apt symbol for the work you have ahead of you in 2005. PS: I expect to see you at the top by next October.
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20Feb. 18): Last January, NASA landed two vehicles on Mars. For months their solar panels provided them with just enough energy to explore the alien terrain. One of the rovers recently experienced an inexplicable power boost, however. It happened overnight, and NASA's team isn't sure why. "We surmise that for some reason dust is being removed from the solar panel," said spokesman Jim Ericson, "and that's increasing the efficiency of the sunlight being converted to electricity." I regard this as an apt metaphor for what lies in your future, Aquarius. In 2005, you too will enjoy mysterious rejuvenations as you reconnoiter exotic territory.

PISCES(Feb. 19March 20):In my imagination, I'm now handing you a battle flag similar to those carried by the armies of medieval Europe. It's a wind sock in the shape of a red, winged dragon with black eagle claws and a long yellow tail. Inside it is a device that unleashes a loud, raucous whistle whenever the wind blows through it. In presenting you with this symbolic gift, I'm exhorting you to pump up your martial forces in 2005. I'm encouraging you to be wild-hearted and strong-willed as you fight the good fight.
