CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): "Happy the person who can endure both the highest and the lowest fortune," said the Roman orator Seneca. "He who weathers such vicissitudes with equanimity has deprived misfortune of its power." Capricorn, you are currently having an encounter with the first thing mentioned in Seneca's formula—the highest fortune. May you navigate your way through this phase of lucky abundance without falling victim to arrogance, carelessness, or insensitivity. Costume suggestion: a lottery winner doling out gifts.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20—Feb. 18): "Any serious writer hopes that the best of his or her product will contribute to the larger store of hope that has continually been accruing in this form, the written word, since the dawn of literate civilization," wrote Dennis Holt in his newsletter, Operation Green Candle. "Good writing is hopeful," he concluded. Your next assignment is inspired by this theory. Whatever your talents are, act as if you have a duty to use them to inspire hope—to feed people's dreams and honor everything that's working really well. Costume suggestions: Johnny Appleseed, Oprah, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Helen Keller.

PISCES (Feb. 19—March 20): In The Mastery of Aware-ness, Kristopher Raphael writes that the old Toltec word mitote was used to describe a chaotic marketplace where scores of people jabber at each other without listening. He says the same term also referred to the state of the average person's mind: a multitude of voices with different agendas, each promoting its own desires while barely acknowledging the others. If you are even partially caught in the throes of this kind of mitote, Pisces, it's an excellent time to take corrective action. I suggest you convene a summit meeting of all your various selves. Give each a respectful hearing, and find a goal or two they can all agree on. Costume suggestion: Be Siamese twins (or triplets), with each character embodying one of your subpersonalities.
