CAPRICORN(Dec. 22Jan. 19): You may have trophies, merit badges, and plaques to commemorate your sexual accomplishments, Capricorn. You may have a Ph.D. in tantra and letters from past lovers testifying to your excellence as an erotic partner. Nevertheless, I believe you have more to learn. There are frontiers you have not yet explored. And this is the perfect time for you to push to the next level. Open your mind and heart to the possibility that you're ready to upgrade the way you stir up emotion-enriching, soul-expanding bliss.
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20Feb. 18): I was looking for a house to rent. A real estate manager gave me a tour of various houses that were available. At one place the occupants weren't home, but the manager had the key to the door and permission to enter. As she led me around, we came upon the master bedroom. A huge German shepherd was on the bed. I reflexively withdrew, afraid the dog would attack the strangers in its house. But it didn't bark, pounce, or even growl. On the contrary, it shivered with fear. Its protective instincts seemed paralyzed. I think the dog's behavior was an apt metaphor for the current state of your own inner guardian, Aquariusyou know, the fierce part of your psyche that defends your interests. It's unnaturally timid and hesitant, and is thus not primed to do its job properly. Do whatever it takes to cure it of its malaise.
PISCES(Feb. 19March 20): After rejecting proposals from many directors, Bob Dylan has finally authorized Oscar-nominated Todd Haynes to make a film about his life. Seven different actors will portray Dylan, including a black woman. "I am setting out to explode the idea that anybody can be depicted in a single self," Haynes told The Sunday Times. You already explode that idea every week of your life, Pisces, and you will be exploding it with even greater force and style in the coming days. I encourage you to be proud of your own riotous multiplicity. It's something to be celebrated, not to be shy about. Why not fantasize about the seven actors and actresses you'd choose to play you in the movie about your life?
HOMEWORK It's easy to see fanaticism, rigidity, and intolerance in other people, but harder to acknowledge them in yourself. Do you dare? Testify at freewillastrology.com.
