CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): Baseball games periodically erupt into faux brawls. One team takes offense at an insult from the opposition, tempers flare, and soon all the players race to the center of the field for a screaming and shoving match. It's rare that anyone is actually hurt; all the testosterone and adrenaline get safely expressed in a way that entertains the fans, and some players are so inspired by the melee that they ratchet up their performances a notch. It might be time for your personal equivalent of one of these outbursts, Capricorn. You and your cohorts may need a catharsis to release the backlog of creative energy that has been a bit blocked.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Musician Michael Franti is my favorite activist. He's a consummate protester, touting joy and beauty as much as he rails against injustice. When he sings "Love is gonna set me free" on his album Stay Human, he's talking about giving love as much as getting it. And he's not just referring to romantic love, but love in all of its flavors and expressions. I bring him to your attention, Aquarius, because he has a habit I recommend to you this week: He goes barefoot a lot—certainly more than any other 6'6" rock star in history; I've never seen him perform with shoes on. My theory is that it reminds him to stay down to earth and well-grounded as he fights for his heady ideals. Make Franti your role model in the coming week. Go barefoot, dole out huge amounts of love, combat injustice artfully, and spread delight with relaxed assertiveness.

PISCES (Feb. 19–March 20): A Pisces woman I know has heard harassing voices in her head for years. They've often urged her to commit suicide or other heinous acts. Three weeks ago, they mysteriously stopped, and they have left her alone ever since. Meanwhile, another Pisces friend recently received a letter from an old lover who unconditionally forgave her for hurting him while they were together. A third acquaintance, also born under the sign of the Fishes, had a lucid dream in which she buried the dress she was wearing during the saddest moment of her life. Subsequently she has felt an exhilarating release from the weight of the past. I see these three events as examples of a theme you, too, are enjoying: a burst of liberation from a demon that has plagued you for eons.
