SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22–Dec. 21): For many people, physical appearance is the most important consideration in their search for a mate. Social status is often a decisive factor, as well as religious and political compatibility. In contrast, here's what evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller told The New York Times when asked why he chose the wife he did: "Because she was very witty and funny and a woman I thought I could learn a lot from. You look for somebody you feel you could talk to for years without getting bored." I recommend that you adopt Miller's criteria for selecting your next three new allies, Sagittarius. It's time to refine your approach to creating your network.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): In his poem "Jerusalem, Easter," Stanley Moss writes, "On this bright Easter morning/smelling of Arab bread,/what if God simply changed his mind/and called out into the city,/'Thou shalt not kill,' and, like an angry father, 'I will not say it another time!'/They are praying too much in Jerusalem." With this as your inspiration, Capricorn, I'd like you to meditate on two themes: (1) What crucial message do you keep getting from God or life but continue to ignore? (2) Is there a certain ideal you say you believe in but sometimes neglect to carry out in your day-to-day encounters?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20–Feb. 18): This would be an excellent time to escape every boring routine that is sapping your life energy. And when I say "escape," I'm hoping you don't settle for a trip to a Wal-Mart in a city 50 miles away. The more dramatic and complete your break with habit, the better. Would you consider exploring the outback of Australia on the back of a camel? Or how about rafting down Tibet's "River of Golden Sand," or reconnoitering Botswana's Okavango Delta, Africa's most beautiful oasis?
