SAGITTARIUS(Nov. 22Dec. 21): "From studying the samurai art of kendo," writes a reader named Amanda, "I've learned that some of history's most fearsome warriors derived their great strength from sublime tenderness." Your assignment during this season of love, Sagittarius, is to act on that advice in every way you can imagine. I want you to be a sensitive juggernaut of courage and daring in the coming months, and I believe the best way to do that is to intensify your commitment to mastering the art of ingenious intimacy. Happy Valentine Daze!
CAPRICORN(Dec. 22Jan. 19): Happy Valentine Daze, Capricorn! I dare you to say the following to a special someone with whom you want to be closer: "Your face is true and your hair is perfect and I love you. You make boats in my dreams and you speak without words and I love you. Your fears unnerve me and your questions amuse me and I love you. I love you not only for who you are, but for the interesting person I become when I'm with you. I say I love you and love you and love you until the words become the constant song of your voice in my head and the original ache of memory in my soul. I love you more than life and death, more than everything that's in between the light and the dark. Do you believe me? Try harder. Do you believe me now? I'm always with you, which is why I know you will never abandon yourself."
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20Feb. 18): Happy Valentine Daze, Aquarius! During this lovers' holiday, I'm praying for you to have mind-boggling communions with smart-mouthed, quick-thinking virtuosos who are at least as brilliant as you. To be frank, I don't care whether or not these communions are with attractive members of your favorite gender. In accordance with the promises of your current astrological omens, I just want to see you stimulated to the point of spiritual and intellectual rapture by kaleidoscopic give-and-take sessions.
