CAPRICORN(Dec. 22Jan. 19): "Women are much more willing to talk about both their disasters and delights than men," says poet and workshop leader Robert Bly. I hope that you men refute his assertion in the coming week, because it'll be a favorable time for Capricorns of all genders to spend quality time testifying and singing and wondering about the most vivid experiences from your past. You're liable to attract a variety of blessings if you come to new understandings about your disasters and delights. The best way to do that is to revisit them and revision them with fresh language.
AQUARIUS(Jan. 20Feb. 18): Are we being sentimentally unscientific when we refer to the heart as the seat of the soul? Or does that idea contain a truth that surpasses reductive rationalism? In A Dictionary of Symbols, J.E. Cirlot reports that in the Jewish tradition, meditation involves "speaking to one's heart." According to Christian tradition, the Kingdom of God resides in the heart. Hindus say the supreme god Brahma lives there, and in Islam, the heart is referred to as the throne of God. If you can get your modern prejudices out of the way, Aquarius, your next assignment is to have a sustained, intimate, heart-to-heart communion with your heart. Learn more about its secret thoughts. Converse with it as if it were the literal source of your emotional intelligence. Proceed on the hypothesis, as French philosopher Pascal did, that "great thoughts come from the heart."
PISCES(Feb. 19March 20): "Dear Rob: I appreciate your help in cueing us in to the mysterious workings of our unconscious minds. I describe what you do not so much as reading the planets to predict our future. Rather, you conspire with us to expose and then overcome what we're hiding, or repressing, or fearing. It's often a daunting task, but I love it! -Ever-Braver Pisces." Dear Ever-Braver: I believe the upcoming weeks will be a golden age in your tribe's efforts to expose and then overcome what you're hiding, or repressing, or fearing. I expect that you'll break up the artificial dam that has been clogging up your imaginative flow, thereby unleashing a flood of creativity.
