SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22–Dec. 21): Professor Robert Crease asked physicists to name the 10 most beautiful experiments of all time. The winners were elegant and simple. They required minimal apparatus, few or no assistants, and little computational power. One was Galileo's legendary proof of the nature of gravity, in which he dropped two objects of different weights from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Another was the brainchild of Isaac Newton, who used a prism to decompose sunlight into a spectrum of hues. I invite you to be inspired by the spirit of these beautiful experiments, Sagittarius. Come up with a lucid, ingenious hypothesis that will help you gather useful data about a question that's crucial for you to explore.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): Right before Christmas, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that slashed funding for student loans, child care, and health benefits for the elderly and poor. Vice President Dick Cheney aborted his trip abroad in order to race home and cast the tie-breaking vote. I suggest that you regard the 51 Scrooges who committed this sin as your anti–role models in the coming days, Capricorn. You can't afford to be anything but generous to the deprived and disadvantaged—including the underprivileged parts of your own psyche that you sometimes neglect.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20—Feb. 18): Marie and Pierre Curie discovered radium. Chemist John Walker invented the match. Physicist Wilhelm R was the first person to find out about X-rays. What do these great minds have in common? They all refused to take out any patents in connection with their innovations, believing that they shouldn't make any profit on something that rightfully belongs to everyone. They're your role models right now, Aquarius. Let them inspire you to give away your brilliance for free. (PS: I probably shouldn't tell you this, but there'll be a big reward for you if you do what I suggest.)

PISCES (Feb. 19—March 20): You've entered the most shadowy and enigmatic phase of your astrological cycle, which is why I think you're about to have a lot of interesting fun. You should look forward to your travels in the abyss with exuberant anticipation. Here are some guidelines to help you get the most out of the coming days. (1) Do the things that are hardest to do, but do them gladly and with grace, as if they were a great privilege. (2) Stay in intimate connection with your dark side, but don't let that turn into an endorsement of your dark side's fantasies. (3) Brainstorm about how to disarm and neutralize your adversaries without fighting them.
